Trump wins the KKK vote?

The Socialist-Progressive Left and Right is on the rampage. They finally believe that they have an issue that they can bring down the Trump juggernaut before the election returns from Super Tuesday come in making Trump the inevitable Republican nominee. What did the corrupt Establishment come up with? The same thing they always come up with when a conservative statesman like Reagan, like Trump gets too big to be controlled by their Socialist slavemasters – they played the race card and declared Trump was allied with the KKK.

Jake Tapper, host of CNN's State of the Union had an insane dialogue with Trump about white supremacist, David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan; specifically Tapper asked if Trump would disavow an endorsement by Duke who had told his radio audience that voting against Trump would be "treason to your heritage." The Stalinist media of course lied on Trump and said he refused to condemn that endorsement or say he didn't want the support of white supremacists – four times.

"I don't know anything about David Duke. I don't know what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacist. I don't know. I don't know, did he endorse me, or what's going on?" he said. That prompted a surreal and bizarre dialogue that went, in part:
    Trump: I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. ... If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them and certainly I would disavow them if I thought there was something wrong.

    Tapper: The Ku Klux Klan?

    Trump: You may have groups in there that are totally fine and it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups and I'll let you know.

    Tapper: I'm just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here.

    Trump: Honestly, I don't know David Duke.
The Propaganda Press went ballistic. The social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc...) exploded in hypocritical, self-righteous handwringing by the Socialist-Progressive Left and Right, crying out to one another – How can Trump not disavow a KKK leader? Is Trump a racist? Is Trump sending a bizarre a 'dog whistle' to the racist white people in the South that he is allied with them for Super Tuesday?

It didn't matter that Trump has no history of racism. It didn't matter that for over 40 years Trump has employed Black people at his vast Trump Enterprise buildings all over America. It didn't matter to Holocaust Democrats that Trump's daughter (Ivanka) and son-in-law are orthodox Jews with 2 children and a third on the way. I'm just waiting for the last gasp of the corrupt Democrat/Republican Socialist Party to begin shrieking that Trump is Hitler. Yet, all of their lies and perversion of the truth cannot move the unshakable faith We the People have in Trump who will be the 45th President of the United States when he is sworn in on inauguration Day, Jan. 20, 2017.

A few days later It was an amazing sight reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland where big is small, up is down, in is out, and everything is the opposite of what it actually is. I speak of CNN's Jeffrey Lord Defends Trump's Refusal To Disavow KKK by claiming it is "A Function Of The Left" who like sharks smelling blood in the water – the Socialist-Progressive Establishment on both sides of the aisle are hellbent of stopping Trump's Triumph at all costs, but We the People will stand strong with Trump and he will prevail. Here's the transcript of the interview:
    Lord: "David Duke Is A Hardcore Leftist" And The KKK Is "A Function Of The Left."

    JOHN BERMAN (HOST): We just heard it. The sound stopped right there. Jeffrey, you heard him say "how many times can I disavow David Duke?"

    JEFFREY LORD: Margaret mentioned Ronald Reagan. When Ronald Reagan ran for governor of California, the press tried keep trying to get him to renounce the John Birch Society. And finally Reagan's answer was, "I am not endorsing them. They are endorsing me. I have nothing to do with them." He didn't play the game in other words. Donald Trump isn't playing the game, although he certainly denounced him. I mean, David Duke is a hardcore leftist. He's an anti-Semite. Yes, Margaret, the Ku Klux Klan is a function of the left. It was the military arm of the Democratic Party. Hello? Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law are Jewish. David Duke is an anti-Semite, for heaven's sakes. This is ridiculous.

    MARGARET HOOVER: When William F. Buckley was starting the conservative movement in the 1950s and 1960s, the John Birch Society did the same thing. They were trying to be part of the conservative movement and what William F. Buckley said is, "no, you have to stand for something. You have to have principles." He said "you are not going to be part of this movement." Where is the moral courage on behalf of Donald Trump, who aspires to be the leader of the free world, to say on some level at some point we do not need the voice and the support of bigotry?

    CNN's political analyst, Jeffrey Lord, a former Reagan aide, defends Trump's KKK gaffe.

    LORD: Margaret, the Ku Klux Klan is a leftist group.

    HOOVER: It is a hate group, Dave. It is a hate group, Jeffrey Lord.

    LORD: It is a leftist group.

    HOOVER: I don't care what side they're on. They are on for hate, they are on the side of hate. They are on the side of murder. They are on the side of blood on their hands. This is not – to blame them on the left. This is a scourge on humanity, this is a scourge on American politics. And to suggest that it is part of the Democratic Party is missing the point. And your guy would not denounce them yesterday. And that is bad for America and it is bad for the Republican Party.

    BERMAN: Go ahead, Jeffrey.

    LORD: Margaret, it is a racist hate group from the left. And that counts. That is important to understand. It is not conservative. It has nothing to do with conservatism. All of these Klan members who have been elected to Congress and U.S. Senate and governorships over the years, supporting Franklin Roosevelt because they like Social Security. Let's get our history straight. ... This is why – this is exactly the kind of thing why people are voting for Donald Trump. Because they think the media is making something out of nothing. Nothing. This is crazy.
After this surreal exchange which demonstrated one alleged conservative (Hoover) being more vicious and partisan than any Democrat would against a Trump supporter (Lord). This prompted me to write on my Facebook page a few days ago: "HISTORY ALERT: What political party invented the KKK on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee as the terrorist arm to terrorize and kill Blacks who tried to exercise their natural rights and political freedoms paid in blood during the Civil War?

Hint: It's not the Republicans – they help free the slaves and passed legislation for the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments that ended slavery, granted Blacks constitutional rights and gave Blacks (men) the right to vote. Not one Democrat voted for these Amendments." Yet, the Holocaust Democrats have the historical perversity to call Trump (and by extension all Republicans) racist? This is a extreme case by the Left of what Sigmund Freud called Psychological Displacement – "an unconscious defense mechanism whereby the mind substitutes either a new aim or a new object for goals felt in their original form to be dangerous or unacceptable."

MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry... Still on the Democrat Plantation

The Left is in a state of apoplexy over Trump: Next on the list is The New York Times story regarding Professor Melissa Harris-Perry who is surely off her meds again or her braids are too tight. This prompted me to write on my Facebook page last week – "Life has its little ironies, doesn't it? A New York Times story ran last week about Melissa Harris-Perry a "journalist" on MSNBC who was outraged that her cable show was preempted by news coverage of Trump whom America can't get enough of supporting all the way to the presidency." I continued posting on Facebook: "Wow, this Marxist Professor was surprised that We the People prefer to watch the Trump Revolution reshape the Republican Socialist Party before our very eyes vs. watching this deranged woman rant and rave about some perceived slight of "Social Justice" while having tampons dangling from her ears as earrings?

MSNBC Harris-Perry, a former professor at Princeton University, on her July 21st 2013 show thought she would wear tampon earrings as a 'protest' against Texas's recently passed abortion regulations.

"I will not be used as a tool for their purposes," Harris-Perry ranted. "I am not a token, mammy or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by Lack, Griffin or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back."

That last admission by this arrogant, clueless, entitled MSNBC host was all I could take which prompted me to post on my Facebook page, "Professor Harris-Perry, that's all you and the Blacks on the Democrat Party Plantation have ever been to the Margaret Sanger Socialist-Progressives – "... tokens, mammies, bobble heads" and much, much worse. Lenin, the Father of the Russian Communist Bolshevik Revolution (1917) call those foolish enough to believe in and give your life for the communist way – "Useful Idiots" – people who every 2 to 4 years zealously vote for your own DEMOCIDE (Government sanctioned murder of its own citizens).

Trump already has 30-35% of the Black Vote. Reagan, after winning 49 states in 1984 only had 10% of the Black Vote! Go Trump 2016!!


On Feb. 26th America's vile tabloid paper, the New York Daily News, did a worthless hit piece on Trump – trying to derail his inevitable triumph on Super Tuesday where he will likely win 10 of 11 states and give Cruz's Texas a run for his money (taking perhaps a near equal number of electoral votes which are apportioned). The New York Daily News is also trying to link Trump to the racist fanatic David Duke. We the People know better and all of the hatred by the Left is only making Trump rise in the polls and get one step closer to making 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. the future home of Donald J. Trump.

Trump is like a transcendent leitmotiv that appears throughout history, but the people at the time didn't have the vision to recognize or understand that he was there all along. They myopic worldview is too self-righteous and understand Trump's critical place in American political history. In an earlier essay, Trump Rising: National Review neocons ranting, I chronicled this amazing phenomenon of history:
    1988: George H.W. Bush-Donald Trump Ticket?

    Did you know that 28 years ago Trump was asked by a senior aide to George H.W. Bush to consider being his running mate for V.P. in the 1988 election? However, Bush-41, the Progressive Republican Establishment anti-Reagan picked the great intellectual Titan, Dan Quayle (ironically a DePauw University graduate like I am). Trump explained in a Sunday interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that his potential candidacy was an idea first broached by Bush political adviser Lee Atwater, who Trump said approached him. Trump said Atwater was "a great guy and an absolute friend, and he did ask me about it and say, 'Would you at all consider it?'"

    But that was the last time the two talked about it, Trump said. "I said, 'I don't know, Lee. Check it out, take a look at it, and if it works, I guess I would certainly consider it,'" Trump said. "But it never really went much further than that."

    Talk about a missed opportunity – Can you imagine how different America would have been, how infinitely better, more peaceful (Trump fought against Bush-43's ill-conceived Iraq War from day-one), and unified the world would have been with a V.P. Trump for two terms followed by a two-term President Trump who would have served (1996-2004, assuming Bush-41 served 2-terms)?
MSNBC host, Rachel Maddow, on her Feb. 29th show, GOP primary based on Romney favors Trump tone, cited this incredible bit of Republican history:
    In the 2012 Republican Presidential race, I mean the last race; the presidential debates that year started so early. The Republicans started debating in 2012 – a year and a half before the election. They started in the Spring of 2011. Ultimately, there were 20 different Republican debates in the 2012 race, and you will remember those debates, they were amazing, right? I mean – Michelle Bachmann, and Herman Cain (remember the 'Nine-Nine-Nine' thing?), and Newt Gingrich denouncing the moderators. It was nutty.

    But what might have been the most nuttiest part of the Republican debate all that year got scheduled for late December that year in 2011, and ultimately never happened; it got cancelled. A very conservative website called Newsmax had planned to do a Republican debate that year between Christmas and New Year. They had a venue all picked out in Des Moines, Iowa, it was right ahead of the Iowa Caucuses. They had a TV network that was all set to broadcast the debate. They invited all the Republican candidates to be there; everything was going swimmingly until the candidates started saying, NO – The candidates started RSVPing, No that they wouldn't attend. The reason why they wouldn't go; the reason why they were offended by the whole prospect of this Newsmax debate as that they were offended specifically by the person who Newsmax chose to moderate that debate.

    The first campaigns to object were the campaigns of Ron Paul and John Huntsman; they both said they would not do a debate as long as that one person was moderating. Ultimately Mitt Romney said the same thing, he said he wouldn't be their either. Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann opted out as well. Finally, Newsmax had to cancel the whole thing because their moderator choice was so controversial, was so obnoxious to basically all of the Republican candidates that year – that is became impossible for them to host the debate.

    None of the candidates would agree to it – And that's because the person who Newsmax chose to host that debate in Iowa, right before the Iowa Caucuses... was Donald Trump.
Where are all of these 12 Conservative Republican midgets today who all stabbed Trump in the back and denied a real Conservative the honor of having hosting a Republican debate? Yet these same self-righteous hypocrites allow the Holocaust Democrats to host the Republican debates which are in reality a circular firing squad, thus paving the way for Obama to win in 2008 and 2012. The answer: They are living inside the crucible of obscurity, futility and irrelevance, while Trump Triumphs all the way to the White House. Go Trump 2016!

Aphorism attributed to Gandhi (1869-1948), leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. This saying applies equally to Trump.
