J. Richard Cohen, the President of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), has penned a ridiculous piece of writing that proves that the SPLC is incapable of any truth whatsoever.
So-called white supremacists have never claimed that Donald J. Trump was one of them. To the contrary, in the racially aware community, there is widespread understanding that Trump is a civic nationalist, a believer in giving everyone an equal chance.
What Trump is not is anti-white. He believes in equal chances, but not in forcing equal outcomes. He believes in hard work, not “community organizing.”
The piece authored by Cohen is just another example of SPLC fear-mongering designed to prompt Jewish liberals to donate more money to fight “hate.”
Many realistic nonwhites know that they cannot compete with whites on a level playing field. For decades they’ve benefited from a system that has tilted the playing field in their direction. Trump promises to level it. That has nonwhites (the laziest among them especially) scared to death.
Excerpt from the Huffington Post
But we can’t suddenly forget or forgive what he [Trump]
said during the campaign.
We can’t forget that Trump called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and killers, or that he said a federal judge can’t decide a lawsuit fairly because he is a “Mexican” (he was born in Indiana).
We can’t forget that his signature campaign promise is to build a wall at the border with Mexico.
We can’t forget that he proposed banning Muslims from entering our country or that he suggested that the “Muslim community” was complicit in the terrorist attack in Orlando.
We can’t forget the despicable way he talks about women or that he bragged about sexually assaulting them.
We can’t forget that he mocked people with disabilities.
We can’t forget that he exploited ugly, racist stereotypes when he described African-American communities as “war zones” and “hell.”
We can’t forget that he failed to immediately disavow the endorsement of David Duke, a neo-Nazi and probably the most well known white supremacist in America.
We can’t forget that he named as his campaign manager a man who runs a website catering to the alt-right, a rebranded white nationalist movement.
We can’t forget that he re-circulated racist and anti-Semitic tweets.
We can’t forget that he went on Alex Jones‘ radio show and told the far-right radio host that his “reputation is amazing.” Jones is, in fact, a fabulist, a con artist known for propagating wild conspiracy theories, such as his claim that the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting was the work of the government.
The point is, in Trump we suddenly face a president-elect who has been wallowing in the cesspool of hate and extremism.
White supremacists who backed his candidacy are jumping for joy. They think they now have their man in the White House.
Andrew Anglin, proprietor of the Daily Stormer, a truly sickening website popular among neo-Nazis, declared, “Our Glorious Leader has ascended to God Emperor. Make no mistake about it: we did this.”
David Duke was equally exultant, tweeting that “our people played a HUGE role in electing Trump!”
Kevin MacDonald, an outspoken anti-Semite and former professor, wrote, “This is an amazing victory. Fundamentally, it is a victory of White people over the oligarchic, hostile elites.”
We can’t afford to take these statements as the ravings of extremists on the fringes of society. They are now at the gates.
But it’s not just sieg-heiling Nazis and cross-burning Klansmen who should trouble Americans concerned about what a Trump victory portends. It’s also the more polite, suit-wearing extremists who move in mainstream political circles and already have their nose under the Trump tent.
They’re people like Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state who birthed the viciously discriminatory, unconstitutional anti-immigrant laws enacted by Arizona, Alabama and other states several years ago; and Ken Blackwell, the former Ohio secretary of state who is now a senior fellow at the rabidly anti-LGBT Family Research Council. Both are reportedly serving as key members of Trump’s transition team.
As is customary, Trump has pledged to be a president “for all Americans.”
If he truly means it, he must first boot the extremists out of his tent and tell them in no uncertain terms that they will have no voice or place in his administration. If he does that, perhaps he can begin to stanch the bleeding from the wounds he ripped open in our country.
But, given the early signs, we’re not counting on it.
No, we’re going on what Trump has been saying all along. The time is now for progressives everywhere to unite and fight with everything we have.
With the exception of Anglin, the people quoted by Cohen are not white supremacists, Nazis, or haters. They’re just honest men telling the truth.
Likewise, Donald Trump won the election by telling the truth.
The big lie is Cohen’s diverse, multicultural paradise where we all just get along and watch the country become a turd world sh*thole.
