Racism and Stupidity - From the Left

Obama recently gave his final speech to the Congressional Black Caucus. Obama: "I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community (blacks) lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election." What is Obama talking about? Is he simply saying that blacks should get out and vote? Even if they vote for Trump?

That seems highly unlikely. How would voting for Trump protect Obama's legacy, when Trump says he will undo much of what Obama has done? No, Obama clearly means blacks must vote for Hillary in order to protect (not insult) his legacy. Can anyone possibly think of a more racist appeal than that? Then again, such a comment is consistent with Obama's repeatedly racist and anti-white comments during the last eight years.

Not to be outdone, retiring US Rep. (D-NY) Charles Rangel said this: "His (Trump's) hatred and his bigotry has pulled the rug off and the sheet off the Republican Party so we can see it for what it is." The sheet off? There you have it - Republicans are members of, or support, the KKK. There is no other possible explanation for his reference to "pulling the sheet off." Elected officials who are Democrats have no problem accusing Republicans of the worst behaviors and intentions. Disgusting!

The 9/20/16 headline in the northern New Jersey newspaper, The Record, had this headline after the capture of the man accused of the recent terror attacks in New York and New Jersey: "Motive a mystery." The suspect was a Muslim and was from Afghanistan. He had made recent trips to Afghanistan, and had become more religious and conservative in his dress. We know this because the article following the headline told us.

The subheadline was "Friends say they saw changes after trip to Afghanistan." So, how is it that the motive is a "mystery?" They could have said it "appears" to be terrorism. They could have said "possible" terrorism. But a mystery? Only the blind and self-delusional left and left-wing media would say the motive is a "mystery."

What's in Your Basket (of Deplorables)?

Recently, Hillary Clinton said this: "You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables - the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it." Bill Press is a longtime liberal political commentator, and was Chair of the California Democratic Party from 1993 to 1996.

In support of Hillary's attack on Trump supporters, Press wrote this: "...the closer you look at Trump supporters, the more you realize how correct she is." Why is that? In support of Hillary's comment, Press tells us: "A recent Pew survey, for example, found that 87% of Trump supporters are white." Perhaps you did not know that being white is, apparently, evidence of you being racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic. White privilege and all.

Clearly, it makes no difference that large numbers of whites voted for Obama twice. Those people are now racists, among other things. Does the fact that blacks vote overwhelmingly as a group (96% voted for Obama in 2008 and 93% did in 2012) make them racist? Or those other condemnable things? Of course not.

Press was not done with his ridiculous analysis: "...and 57% of them (Trump supporters) believe Muslims should get more scrutiny by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service." I will not repeat the large percentages of Muslims from Muslim countries who support making Sharia law the official law of their countries. Sharia law is, in many instances, contrary to US law and the US Constitution. I will not repeat all of the terrorist attacks that have been carried out by Islamic terrorists here within the United States.

But why should we care about people who come here with the intent of pushing Sharia law, or worse, inciting and carrying out violence against Americans and America? We know, even if Obama and other leftists refuse to acknowledge it, that most terror attacks are carried out by Muslims. So, the question should be: who would not want increased scrutiny of a group known to kill those who are not like them? Only political correctness prevents the rest of the people from seeing the logic of increased scrutiny.

Press: "In June, Reuters reorted that nearly half of Trump voters described African-Americans as more "violent" than whites..." Heather MacDonald reprts that in Chicago blacks constitute 35% of the population, but committed 76% of the homicides. In Los Angeles, blacks make up 10% of the population, but commit 42% of robberies and 34% of the felonies.

As someone who is in the "basket of deplorables," I can only say that I would rather be in that basket than in the basket of the politically correct delusional leftists.
