It’s a version of “White Power’ folks…
Of making ‘American Great Again’ by pushing back against ‘Black , Brown and Yellow lives Matter’….
It was the path a Real Estate Salesman from Queens, New York City was able to beat the sure winner wife of a American President to be President….
No sugar coating it….
Border Wall’s …..
Atta Boys for White Power people….
Distane for wearing a mask….
These things are about appealing the white right-leaning America….
Donald Trump has and still wants to make another sale to those who are afraid that people ‘of color’ are becoming an America that had it’s white’s running the show…
An America in 2020 that had forgotten the ways the people Trump champion’s and rants at carried out atrocities against Black, Browns and Yellows in the past….
But because of Donald Trump and some very bad cops?
America has seen people pour into the streets to show their anger and Indigination at a President who has never stopped trying to use them for his personal political gain…
Donald John Trump will try to use his race based sales pitch again to try squeeze another miracle win…
He has NOT 2nd term plan…
He never had a first term plan, except to try to enrich himself and have people show ‘loyalty’ to him before the peoples he swore on a bible to protect….
Trump HAS ALWAYS been about HIMSELF….
We are going to see this again in the next 4 months…
And he will do this on the back of those of color…
And Republicans seem to have no problem to supporting his actions….
If we’re lucky?
They’ll ALL go down in flames come November….
A lot of Republicans are acting puzzled about Donald Trump’s re-election pitch. “He has no message,” one Republican source told Reuters. “He needs to articulate why he wants a second term,” said another. Some have expressed hope that Trump would find a way to become less polarizing, as if polarization were not the raison d’être of his presidency.
It’s hard to know if Republicans like this are truly naïve or if they’re just pretending so they don’t have to admit what a foul enterprise they’re part of. Because Trump does indeed have a re-election message, a stark and obvious one. It is “white power.”
The president started this week by tweeting out a video that encapsulates the soul of his movement. In it, a man in The Villages, an affluent Florida retirement community, shouts, “White power!” at protesters from a golf cart bedecked with Trump signs. “Thank you to the great people of The Villages,” wrote Trump. Only after several hours and a panic among White House staffers did the president delete the tweet.
His spokesman claimed he hadn’t heard his supporter’s extremely clear words. Trump, naturally, never disavowed them.
And why would he? Republicans might act as if they don’t know why Trump’s fans are so unfailingly loyal. Some commentators spent the first year or two of his presidency dancing around the reason he was elected, spending so much time probing the “economic anxiety” of his base that the phrase came to stand for a type of willful political blindness.
But Trump understands that he became a significant political figure by spreading the racist lie that Barack Obama was really born in Kenya. He launched his history-making presidential bid with a speech calling Mexican immigrants rapists and adopted a slogan, “America First,” previously associated with the raging anti-Semite Charles Lindbergh. Throughout the 2016 campaign, he won the invaluable prize of earned media with escalating racist provocations, which his supporters relished and which captivated cable news.
People voted for Trump for reasons besides racism. There was also sexism. Some voters were just partisan Republicans, or thought that reality TV is real and that Trump was as successful as “The Apprentice” made him seem. I once met a young man at a Trump rally who’d voted for Obama but was worried about the taxes he’d pay when he inherited his family’s car dealership.
Trump, however, seems to grasp that racism is what put him over the top. It’s what made his campaign seem wild and transgressive and hard to look away from…..
