From the NYT:

Racism Is Real. Trump Helps Show It.
By JENÉE DESMOND-HARRIS APRIL 29, 2016

Jenée Desmond-Harris is a John S. Knight journalism fellow at Stanford University.

I have a confession: When Donald J. Trump swept five primaries on Tuesday, I was a little bit excited. And I don’t think I’m the only person who despises the role racism plays in American life who feels this way.

Let me explain.

For a certain group of voters, part of Mr. Trump’s appeal is obvious. They hear their own views echoed in his divisive and bigoted rhetoric. They’re the ones who nod in agreement that Mexican immigrants are rapists who are “bringing drugs” and that all Muslims should be barred from entering the United States.

What’s striking, however, is how little evidence the Trump haters can gather that Trump is in any way biased against African-Americans:

They’re people who think the linguistic anachronism “the blacks” sounds appropriate. They yearn for the return to a long-lost “great” version of America that it’s safe to guess existed before the implementation of the Civil Rights Act.

Okay! If that’s not Proof with a capital P I don’t know what it.

I’m not in this group. The prospect of a Trump presidency horrifies me. Like many others, I find the bigotry behind the Republican front-runner’s most controversial views infuriating and frightening.

But I also find it familiar. I’m a journalist who writes about race, so I spend a lot of time thinking about the way racism shapes American life, both in individual interactions and in the way institutions operate. What’s most frustrating is that, despite all the evidence, convincing people who would rather not believe that this is real can be hard.

Let’s see what this Stanford’s fellowette’s first example is:

Last March, I reported on the Department of Justice’s findings that the police and municipal courts in Ferguson, Mo., had consistently violated the constitutional rights of the city’s black residents.

Yup, the Ferguson Fiasco.

The article included a summary of the abuse of power investigators uncovered, as well as the content of public officials’ emails. (One example: a photo of a bare-chested group of dancing women, apparently in Africa, captioned “Michelle Obama’s High School Reunion.”)

Simply for presenting the investigation’s findings and the cops’ and court officials’ revealing words, I received a barrage of angry messages asking why I had to “make everything about race.”

Because that’s what Stanford pays her to do.

I’ve heard the same sort of thing in response to news stories about police killings of unarmed African-Americans, black girls facing disproportionate school discipline, record numbers of anti-Muslim attacks. Stop being divisive. People who focus on these things are the real racists. Racism is in the past.

One thing has been made very clear to me: Many people resent being confronted with information about how racism still shapes — and sometimes, ruins — life in this country.

And other people, many of them Establishment journalists, aren’t very skilled or unbiased about evaluating information.

Tomás Jiménez, an associate professor of sociology and comparative studies in race and ethnicity at Stanford University, uses what he calls the “ghost metaphor” to describe the quandary of people who personally experience or aim to draw attention to racism. “It haunts every aspect of your life, but nobody else sees it and they don’t believe you” he said. “Sometimes it makes a very pronounced appearance, and that’s why people seize on it.”

I don’t really think this metaphor of believing in pervasive, omnipresent racism is like believing in pervasive, omnipresent ghosts is really optimal from the point of view of justifying your belief in racism, but, apparently, nobody at Stanford is willing to point that out to Ms. Desmond-Harris.

That, he told me, is why Mr. Trump is refreshing to people who share his views, as well as to people who have always known that views like this exist.

In a world where racism and discrimination — both personal and systemic — shape opportunities and can even determine life or death, but are often denied, they’re rarely owned so boldly as they have been during this campaign.

As Professor Jiménez put it, “Trump and his supporters have turned the racial dog whistle into an air horn.”

The air horn is so piercingly loud that few can pretend they don’t hear it, or understand what it represents about the country.

A lot of people seem to see Trump’s run as a referendum on truthfulness of The Narrative about race.

He’s a test case, the street urchin in “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” If Trump can’t be silenced, who knows what he might say. And he might make it fashionable for Americans to exercise their First Amendment rights. Journalists must take a stand against that.

And yet, there’s little evidence that Trump is challenging The Narrative when it comes to race. He seems to have a more functional view that we ought to be able to discuss frankly the merits and demerits of permitting various foreigners into America, but he hasn’t wanted to get into the strengths and weaknesses of African-Americans, who are, after all, his fellow Americans.

But that is apparently too sophisticated a concept for the news media establishment to grasp.

Mr. Trump and his supporters have reignited that fear, even in people who claimed they couldn’t hear dog whistles. Even in people who swore they didn’t believe in ghosts.

Great concluding metaphor!

Here’s a counter metaphor: Trump as the Scooby-Doo show. As you’ll recall, the usual plot on this cartoon show is for the gang to investigate reports of a ghost, but it usually turns out to be some self-interested hoaxster instead.

Of course, there’s little evidence that Trump is interested in doing that.

    MMM, “ghost metaphor” sounds a tad too much like Derrida’s Hauntology (TM). Need to be careful about infringing on another man’s brand there, dear fellow.

    It takes ya by surprise every time.

  3. You’re making the mistake you’re always making: you think people want to communicate ideas or facts.

    If you came across a girl who was crying, would you start analyzing the sobs, trying to figure their meaning? Of course not, because you realize that it’s just the sound she makes while experiencing an emotion.

    That’s what this is. The emotion the writer is communicating is “I hate white men”. That’s it. The content of the text is irrelevant and trying to poke holes in the “arguments” is silly.

    “Racist Trump Fan Arrested With Stockpile Of Pipe Bombs After Threatening Obama”
    “John Martin Roos, 61, repeatedly threatened to kill President Barack Obama in regular racist rants on Twitter and Facebook.”

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/john-roos-fbi-pipe-bomb_us_5723a97be4b01a5ebde593d4

    A fanatical Donald Trump supporter, who was arrested by the FBI in Oregon this week after repeatedly threatening to kill President Barack Obama and federal agents, had multiple pipe bombs in his home, authorities alleged in court on Friday.

    John Martin Roos, a 61-year-old from Oregon, has been charged with communication of a threat in interstate commerce, and additional charges are likely forthcoming. Roos first came onto the federal government’s radar after a “concerned citizen” brought Roos’ Facebook and Twitter postings to the FBI’s attention in February, according to an affidavit from Special Agent Jeffrey Gray. (Excerpts, below, from Roos’ postings contain explicit language.)

    In one Jan. 31 Facebook post cited by the FBI, Roos referred to agents as “pussies” and wrote he would “snipe them with hunting rifles everywhere.” (Despite his threats to kill members of law enforcement, he also complained on Facebook earlier this month about the “liberal media … slamming police.”) In a post in November that was also cited by the FBI, Roos spoke out against accepting refugees and threatened to kill Obama.

    “Obama you goat fffing fudgepacker, the refugees are men of fighting age. Black lives matter! Sure we need someone to pick cotton and wash cars. Paris, burn diseased muslim neighborhoods to the ground and start over with human beings. Obama you are on a hit list,” he wrote in a post that appears to have been removed.

    Beyond what was mentioned in the affidavit, Roos regularly posted on both Facebook and Twitter about his support for Trump and his hatred for Obama, who he called a “muslim faggot” and other derogatory terms. He indicated he wanted to kill Obama’s family and made other racist and sexist statements about Michelle Obama. He also made negative references to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, singer Beyonce, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and reporter Michelle Fields, and said he believed that the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was killed by Obama. He praised Ann Coulter and Stacey Dash, and posted several links to posts on Breitbart.com.

    He regularly posted about his support for Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate. In one post mentioned in court filings, Roos stated that he believed the establishment “is trying to steal the election” from Trump. “All hail Donald Trump, the savior of America,” he wrote on Christmas Eve. “I’ll bet he was born on Dec 25 just like Jesus.”

    One thing worth noting is that Trump has come down hard on BLM. He has made it clear that he will back the police, and he has had no qualms about having his security escort BLM protestors away from his events. That of course makes him a flaming racist in 2016, even if you despise BLM for all the “black bodies” it has been leaving on the street.

    But yes, Trump has otherwise shown no animus to blacks during this campaign. If he’s smart, he’ll try to broaden his message out to blacks in Rust Belt states. He can probably make some ground in suggesting that Hillary’s open borders policies will leave less Affirmative Action goodies left for blacks.

    I wonder if he will stress, come the general election, that his policies will be good for Hispanic citizens, but that he thinks illegal immigration is a problem for everyone, including Hispanic citizens.

    Trump has called blacks "the blacks" - this is PROOF POSITIVE that he is a flaming racist Nazi. Any politically correct person knows not to call blacks "the blacks" this week, just as they know that this week you call the various flavors of sexual deviants not just "gay" but LGTBQ(XYZ). Personally I'm not a politically correct person so I don't know the secret password for what it is correct to call black people (or gays) this week - it has changed at least 5 times in my lifetime, but whatever it is, it is not "the blacks", that's for sure.

Those who wanted to work couldn't, while those who did not still prospered.

  10. As a Canadian watching from a distance I can’t help but cheer on Trump simply because of this purgative effect he’s having on your – and, unfortunately, my – political culture. I like that the Ms. Jenée Desmond-Harris types are now pooling around Hillary along with the neocons, cuckservatives, tranny washroom advocates, globalists, race hysterics and feisty gals.

    Hillary is fast becoming a giant Scum Magnet. She’s pulling all the bad ideas and toxic people to her side. This is a good thing. Let her and her campaign act as a cathartic scapegoat for the American community. Let all the post-1968 bad ideas be tied to her just before she’s metaphorically driven off a cliff.

    The fact that she’s a feisty White lady from a comfortable, old stock background just makes her even more ideal for her role in this purgative event. Putting bossy, WASP-y Hillary in the global village’s cucking stool is urgently needed now. It must be done and must be seen to be done by all the other bossy gals from comfortable backgrounds, from Helsinki to Seattle. Trump trumping Hillary in your presidential race is the ideal venue for this mother of all “teachable moments”. Trump’s showmanship will make sure it’s done well too. It would make the perfect matching book-end to the silly, feisty gals in Norway who gave Obama the Nobel Prize for no reason at all or for Merkel being Merkel.

    ” Donald Trump denies rape of teenage girl at ‘sex party with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’”

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/donald-trump-denies-rape-teenage-7857357

    US presidential hopeful Donald Trump has denied claims he raped a woman when she was a teenager.

    The Republican front-runner has been accused of attacking the alleged victim with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

    The bombshell claim threatens to derail Trump’s bid for the White House , as he is currently on course to win the party’s nomination for the November election.

    The billionaire businessman responded last night saying the allegations are “categorically false”.

    The alleged victim, who lodged her claim in the Central District Court of California on Tuesday, is suing for $100m.

    While the Mirror does not usually name victims of sexual abuse, the woman has identified herself in court papers as Kate Johnson, and plans to defend herself in court.

    She accused Trump and fellow billionaire Epstein of “sexual abuse under threat of harm” and “conspiracy to deprive civil rights.”

    In her claim, Johnson “alleges she was enticed by promises of money and modelling career to attend a series of underage sex parties held at the New York City residence of defendant Jeffrey E Epstein and attended by Donald J Trump.”

    You're partly right. Don't know where the nonsense about getting a pass for being white and white is right came from, though.

    A better approximation of a typical Trump supporter is that they feel they have the right to put Americans and America first, including non-white Americans citizens. And if that means cutting off the free ride of foreigners who are trying to mooch off the US taxpayer, or threatening the safety of the people, then too bad for them, regardless of whether they are predominately brown in aggregate.

    Basically, the Trump supporter is giving the finger to the state ideology of the times, which holds that because most of those foreigners are non-white Mexicans and Muslims, that they are innocent angels due whatever they want as penance payment from (predominately white) American citizens for imagined/grossly exaggerated "sins" of white people in the past.

    Trump supporters view - very wide range - i'd say the median is probably close to Trump's view except with added bitterness from one or more episodes of crime or forced white flight or anti-white discrimination in jobs / housing etc which someone in Trump's income bracket won't have experienced.

    Trump has ties to Epstein:

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/alexcampbell/court-papers-trump-ate-at-jeffrey-epsteins-house


    But court papers — in one case previously unreported — suggest that the Republican frontrunner for president had a closer relationship with Epstein than he has recently let on, dining at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion and riding on his private jet.

    Alessi testified that Trump would come over to Epstein’s home for dinner — though he added that Trump “never sat at the table” but instead ate “with me in the kitchen.” In another deposition, Epstein’s brother Mark testified he once flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane with both him and Trump, who were “friends.” Asked why Trump was on board, Mark Epstein replied, “You’ll have to ask Donald. I think he wanted a ride back to New York.”

    Reached by phone Wednesday, Mark Epstein declined to comment beyond what was in his deposition. A call to Juan Alessi was answered by a man identifying himself as his son John, who said that Juan did not want to talk about the Epstein case.

    In 2002, before those allegations surfaced, Trump told New York magazine that Epstein was a “terrific guy” who he had known for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

    Here is an approximation of what Donald Trump's people think about non-whites:

    "You make me uncomfortable; it's your fault that you are what (or who) you are, not mine; I have a right to feel this way. I don't care if it's evil; even if it is, I get a pass (because being white makes me right); I hate you because I'm the real victim, not you, because if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't feel this way. So, it's all your fault. Deal with it."

    You’re partly right. Don’t know where the nonsense about getting a pass for being white and white is right came from, though.

    A better approximation of a typical Trump supporter is that they feel they have the right to put Americans and America first, including non-white Americans citizens. And if that means cutting off the free ride of foreigners who are trying to mooch off the US taxpayer, or threatening the safety of the people, then too bad for them, regardless of whether they are predominately brown in aggregate.

    Basically, the Trump supporter is giving the finger to the state ideology of the times, which holds that because most of those foreigners are non-white Mexicans and Muslims, that they are innocent angels due whatever they want as penance payment from (predominately white) American citizens for imagined/grossly exaggerated “sins” of white people in the past.

    Btw, Stalin had no divisiveness. Everyone agreed with his politics. We need dictatorship than democracy. Under dictatorship, all of us have to agree with the leader.

    Under democracy, we have different parties and that leads to contention and division.

    When a Lib says ‘you are divisive’, it means ‘you must agree with me or else’. It never occurs to them that they are divisive in their own way by vilifying whites.

    Now about Netanyahu for US president? Everyone of both parties seem to be
    unified in praising the great leader. No more division.

    One thing worth noting is that Trump has come down hard on BLM. He has made it clear that he will back the police, and he has had no qualms about having his security escort BLM protestors away from his events. That of course makes him a flaming racist in 2016, even if you despise BLM for all the "black bodies" it has been leaving on the street.

    But yes, Trump has otherwise shown no animus to blacks during this campaign. If he's smart, he'll try to broaden his message out to blacks in Rust Belt states. He can probably make some ground in suggesting that Hillary's open borders policies will leave less Affirmative Action goodies left for blacks.

    I wonder if he will stress, come the general election, that his policies will be good for Hispanic citizens, but that he thinks illegal immigration is a problem for everyone, including Hispanic citizens.

    Trump has called blacks “the blacks” – this is PROOF POSITIVE that he is a flaming racist Nazi. Any politically correct person knows not to call blacks “the blacks” this week, just as they know that this week you call the various flavors of sexual deviants not just “gay” but LGTBQ(XYZ). Personally I’m not a politically correct person so I don’t know the secret password for what it is correct to call black people (or gays) this week – it has changed at least 5 times in my lifetime, but whatever it is, it is not “the blacks”, that’s for sure.

  30. Interesting how Trump attracts feminine arguments; “he’s a hater, he’s not inclusive”, and masculine arguments; “he’s weak on Russia, he cannot be trusted to deal pain, misery, and death upon our enemies.” So many in our country hate him viscerally. Is he trolling them?

    As a Canadian watching from a distance I can't help but cheer on Trump simply because of this purgative effect he's having on your - and, unfortunately, my - political culture. I like that the Ms. Jenée Desmond-Harris types are now pooling around Hillary along with the neocons, cuckservatives, tranny washroom advocates, globalists, race hysterics and feisty gals.

    Hillary is fast becoming a giant Scum Magnet. She's pulling all the bad ideas and toxic people to her side. This is a good thing. Let her and her campaign act as a cathartic scapegoat for the American community. Let all the post-1968 bad ideas be tied to her just before she's metaphorically driven off a cliff.

    The fact that she's a feisty White lady from a comfortable, old stock background just makes her even more ideal for her role in this purgative event. Putting bossy, WASP-y Hillary in the global village's cucking stool is urgently needed now. It must be done and must be seen to be done by all the other bossy gals from comfortable backgrounds, from Helsinki to Seattle. Trump trumping Hillary in your presidential race is the ideal venue for this mother of all "teachable moments". Trump's showmanship will make sure it's done well too. It would make the perfect matching book-end to the silly, feisty gals in Norway who gave Obama the Nobel Prize for no reason at all or for Merkel being Merkel.

    Trump has ties to Epstein:

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/alexcampbell/court-papers-trump-ate-at-jeffrey-epsteins-house

    But court papers — in one case previously unreported — suggest that the Republican frontrunner for president had a closer relationship with Epstein than he has recently let on, dining at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion and riding on his private jet.

    Alessi testified that Trump would come over to Epstein’s home for dinner — though he added that Trump “never sat at the table” but instead ate “with me in the kitchen.” In another deposition, Epstein’s brother Mark testified he once flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane with both him and Trump, who were “friends.” Asked why Trump was on board, Mark Epstein replied, “You’ll have to ask Donald. I think he wanted a ride back to New York.”

    Reached by phone Wednesday, Mark Epstein declined to comment beyond what was in his deposition. A call to Juan Alessi was answered by a man identifying himself as his son John, who said that Juan did not want to talk about the Epstein case.

    In 2002, before those allegations surfaced, Trump told New York magazine that Epstein was a “terrific guy” who he had known for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

    “One of the Africans’ deep-rooted superstitions is witchcraft, to the operation of which they generally ascribe disease and death….if, on the contrary, the sickness should increase, another doctor, called the ‘discoverer of bewitching matter,’ is then summoned , who professes to discover the party supposed to have bewitched him. The guilt having been affixed, after many absurd ceremonies, upon some unfortunate wretch, a report is made to the chief, who directs torture to be inflicted on him, for the purpose of eliciting confession….It can be no matter of surprise that innocent persons, subjected to these terrible punishments, should be induced to confess the agency of which they have been accused, and instances are on record of many individuals, perfectly guiltless, who have admitted the crime rather than to undergo the fiery ordeal, through a natural dread of its horrors.”–Steadman’s Africa, Vol. I., page 37.

    From The Negro in Negroland

    “When a person of influence is taken ill, or dies, the cause is eagerly sought after, not in the nature of the disease, but in some person who was at enmity with the deceased, or who had acted in some way to excite suspicion. This was very natural in them, as they did not believe in an overruling Providence.” Moffat’s Africa, page 292. The Negro in Negroland.

    So, no natural cause is to be sought for the retarded performance of black students, the amount of black criminality etc. It is attributed to the witchery of “white privilege”.

    If, as Jayman insists, all human character traits are heritable to some degree, then we are in for a long slog.

    With the amount of miscegenation depicted on every TV commercial, the liberal Left tacitly admits their agreement with the Jayman and further, acknowledges that the only way blacks will be purged of their primitive, atavistic traits is through interbreeding with whites.

    The key thing is that neither Sanders nor Cruz has really been attacked yet. Trump and Clinton have been attacked not only from the other side, but from within their own parties, because they're the frontrunners in contentious primaries.

    Sanders would be much easier to beat than Clinton. The Clinton election playbook is just to regroup the Obama coalition of racial minorities and affluent, socially liberal whites. It may work, it may not, but it's not crazy to think that what worked in 2008 and 2012 will work in 2016.

    The Sanders strategy is to not worry about the millions of affluent, socially liberal Democrats who will bolt from the Dems when they find out that he wants to massively hike their taxes, because he'll magically bring in millions of new voters who have never participated in the political process. The "political revolution."

    Cruz is much less electable than Trump, because all the claims the media makes about Trump, "He's an extremist! He's a bigot! He'd be dangerous in the White House!" are actually somewhat true about Cruz.

    Trump has had some harsh words about illegal immigrants and jihadists, but Cruz has actually attended "kill the gays" rallies. He'd be the most politically extreme nominee since Goldwater. He has a repellent personality and a proven inability to work with others. The entire establishment would be against Cruz in a way that isn't true even for Trump.

    Trump has ties to Epstein:

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/alexcampbell/court-papers-trump-ate-at-jeffrey-epsteins-house


    But court papers — in one case previously unreported — suggest that the Republican frontrunner for president had a closer relationship with Epstein than he has recently let on, dining at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion and riding on his private jet.

    Alessi testified that Trump would come over to Epstein’s home for dinner — though he added that Trump “never sat at the table” but instead ate “with me in the kitchen.” In another deposition, Epstein’s brother Mark testified he once flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane with both him and Trump, who were “friends.” Asked why Trump was on board, Mark Epstein replied, “You’ll have to ask Donald. I think he wanted a ride back to New York.”

    Reached by phone Wednesday, Mark Epstein declined to comment beyond what was in his deposition. A call to Juan Alessi was answered by a man identifying himself as his son John, who said that Juan did not want to talk about the Epstein case.

    In 2002, before those allegations surfaced, Trump told New York magazine that Epstein was a “terrific guy” who he had known for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

    Trump hasn’t made any anti-black statements although I was surprised nobody picked up on his ambivalent thoughts on affirmative action in an interview with Chris Wallace, earlier in the campaign before Scalia’s death. He basically makes clear he is “fine with it” but then he kind of lets his real opinion out:

    “It is coming to a time where maybe we don’t need it…I don’t think we need it so much anymore. It has served its place, it has served its time”

    Based on those statements I would suggest that Trump thinks of affirmative action the way he probably does on social security and other entitlements. He probably knows that it is not good but considers it politically stupid to attack. So he will not make it a priority because he needs to appease black people and I think the media/activists are waiting for something more concretely anti-black to lynch him on.

The guilt having been affixed, after many absurd ceremonies, upon some unfortunate wretch, a report is made to the chief, who directs torture to be inflicted on him, for the purpose of eliciting confession….It can be no matter of surprise that innocent persons, subjected to these terrible punishments, should be induced to confess the agency of which they have been accused, and instances are on record of many individuals, perfectly guiltless, who have admitted the crime rather than to undergo the fiery ordeal, through a natural dread of its horrors."--Steadman's Africa, Vol. I., page 37.

    From The Negro in Negroland

    "When a person of influence is taken ill, or dies, the cause is eagerly sought after, not in the nature of the disease, but in some person who was at enmity with the deceased, or who had acted in some way to excite suspicion. This was very natural in them, as they did not believe in an overruling Providence." Moffat's Africa, page 292. The Negro in Negroland.

    US presidential hopeful Donald Trump has denied claims he raped a woman when she was a teenager.

    The Republican front-runner has been accused of attacking the alleged victim with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

    The bombshell claim threatens to derail Trump’s bid for the White House , as he is currently on course to win the party’s nomination for the November election.

    The billionaire businessman responded last night saying the allegations are "categorically false”.

    The alleged victim, who lodged her claim in the Central District Court of California on Tuesday, is suing for $100m.

    While the Mirror does not usually name victims of sexual abuse, the woman has identified herself in court papers as Kate Johnson, and plans to defend herself in court.

    She accused Trump and fellow billionaire Epstein of “sexual abuse under threat of harm” and “conspiracy to deprive civil rights.”

    In her claim, Johnson “alleges she was enticed by promises of money and modelling career to attend a series of underage sex parties held at the New York City residence of defendant Jeffrey E Epstein and attended by Donald J Trump.”

    The key thing is that neither Sanders nor Cruz has really been attacked yet. Trump and Clinton have been attacked not only from the other side, but from within their own parties, because they’re the frontrunners in contentious primaries.

    Sanders would be much easier to beat than Clinton. The Clinton election playbook is just to regroup the Obama coalition of racial minorities and affluent, socially liberal whites. It may work, it may not, but it’s not crazy to think that what worked in 2008 and 2012 will work in 2016.

    The Sanders strategy is to not worry about the millions of affluent, socially liberal Democrats who will bolt from the Dems when they find out that he wants to massively hike their taxes, because he’ll magically bring in millions of new voters who have never participated in the political process. The “political revolution.”

    Cruz is much less electable than Trump, because all the claims the media makes about Trump, “He’s an extremist! He’s a bigot! He’d be dangerous in the White House!” are actually somewhat true about Cruz.

    Trump has had some harsh words about illegal immigrants and jihadists, but Cruz has actually attended “kill the gays” rallies. He’d be the most politically extreme nominee since Goldwater. He has a repellent personality and a proven inability to work with others. The entire establishment would be against Cruz in a way that isn’t true even for Trump.

    In 2002, before those allegations surfaced, Trump told New York magazine that Epstein was a “terrific guy” who he had known for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

  94. Steve, be fair.

    If Arthur Jensen’s hereditarian hypothesis is correct, then, of course, there is a structural, omnipresent reason for African-American failure despite trillions in government spending and societal-wide restrictions on the right of free association.

    Further, if you are a tenured radical in ______ Studies, or you write for the NYT’s, then obviously, there is no political benefit to stating the “true name” of the beast. So why not make up a conspiracy theory and blame Whites? The same type of rhetorical strategy worked pretty well for German political radicals in the early 20th century who managed to seize power by ginning up hatred against a successful and high IQ ethnicity. . . (Interesting to contemplate if we import enough PLO-types whether the conspiracy theory will revert to its origins?)

    She's not going to win.

    When the time comes all Trump has to do is run ads showing the things the media hides e.g. the families of the thousands killed by illegal immigrants.

    Any candidate *could* do that but their campaign funders would stop them.

    (Plus Trump has all the bright white kids made psycho by the anti-white education system making ads for him for free.)

    It's going to be a massacre.

    Here is an approximation of what Donald Trump's people think about non-whites:

    "You make me uncomfortable; it's your fault that you are what (or who) you are, not mine; I have a right to feel this way. I don't care if it's evil; even if it is, I get a pass (because being white makes me right); I hate you because I'm the real victim, not you, because if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't feel this way. So, it's all your fault. Deal with it."

    Here is the money quote:


    Some comedy critics might call this “punching down,” that is, picking on regular people rather than the powerful. But to ignore the role, and the collective power, of the millions of people helping Mr. Trump upend traditional politics is to ignore why his candidacy is news (which is to say, worthy of satire) in the first place.
     
    In other words, normally "civilians" (ordinary voters) are off limits as attack targets, but Trump's supporters are badwhites and they are therefore fair game, so go git those redneck crackers.

    The whole article is basically a rant by a librul reporter who is frustrated that neither comics (nor anyone else) has found the silver bullet that will kill Trump's candidacy.

    Meanwhile, Hillary is eligible for only mild (and unfunny) ribbing.

    Obama spent his entire life hanging out with Bill Ayers, Rev.

Or else he has to ritually denounce them morning noon and night.

    I was thinking a similar thing recently.

    The press send out a Sherpa to find David Duke and get his opinion on the race, Trump doesn’t immediately “condemn” Duke, and all of a sudden, the guy is a Robert Byrd who didn’t study the by-laws of the Senate.

    OTOH, both Hillary and Sanders actively court the support of The Revrum’ Al Sharpton, and not a peep.

    "Racist Trump Fan Arrested With Stockpile Of Pipe Bombs After Threatening Obama"
    "John Martin Roos, 61, repeatedly threatened to kill President Barack Obama in regular racist rants on Twitter and Facebook."

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/john-roos-fbi-pipe-bomb_us_5723a97be4b01a5ebde593d4

    A fanatical Donald Trump supporter, who was arrested by the FBI in Oregon this week after repeatedly threatening to kill President Barack Obama and federal agents, had multiple pipe bombs in his home, authorities alleged in court on Friday.

    John Martin Roos, a 61-year-old from Oregon, has been charged with communication of a threat in interstate commerce, and additional charges are likely forthcoming. Roos first came onto the federal government's radar after a "concerned citizen" brought Roos' Facebook and Twitter postings to the FBI's attention in February, according to an affidavit from Special Agent Jeffrey Gray. (Excerpts, below, from Roos' postings contain explicit language.)

    In one Jan. 31 Facebook post cited by the FBI, Roos referred to agents as "pussies" and wrote he would "snipe them with hunting rifles everywhere." (Despite his threats to kill members of law enforcement, he also complained on Facebook earlier this month about the "liberal media ... slamming police.") In a post in November that was also cited by the FBI, Roos spoke out against accepting refugees and threatened to kill Obama.

    "Obama you goat fffing fudgepacker, the refugees are men of fighting age. Black lives matter! Sure we need someone to pick cotton and wash cars. Paris, burn diseased muslim neighborhoods to the ground and start over with human beings. Obama you are on a hit list," he wrote in a post that appears to have been removed.

    Beyond what was mentioned in the affidavit, Roos regularly posted on both Facebook and Twitter about his support for Trump and his hatred for Obama, who he called a "muslim faggot" and other derogatory terms. He indicated he wanted to kill Obama's family and made other racist and sexist statements about Michelle Obama. He also made negative references to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, singer Beyonce, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and reporter Michelle Fields, and said he believed that the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was killed by Obama. He praised Ann Coulter and Stacey Dash, and posted several links to posts on Breitbart.com.

    He regularly posted about his support for Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate. In one post mentioned in court filings, Roos stated that he believed the establishment "is trying to steal the election" from Trump. "All hail Donald Trump, the savior of America," he wrote on Christmas Eve. "I'll bet he was born on Dec 25 just like Jesus."

    What’s wrong with “The Blacks”? When did it become the new N word? Does that mean “The Whites” is racist as well?
     
    "The blacks" goes with "you people" into that category of "imperfect style, and therefore racist" that is only enforced on whites, typically on behalf of blacks. The thinking being, if you aren't capable of keeping perfectly current and mindful in your speaking style, well, you probably can't keep perfectly current in your thinking, either. And dass raciss.

    With the amount of miscegenation depicted on every TV commercial
     
    The Walking Dead has gotten so bad I can't really enjoy it any more. Now the main romances are: Nordic white guy and dark black woman, Korean guy and white (Jewish actress Christian character) girl, Nordic white guy leaving brown girl for mulatto girl. Then I fired up Fear the Walking Dead to find out it's about a Nordic wife and a Brown husband, her white daughter and her black boyfriend, and I dunno what else because I deleted it.

    Do these people know where white people come from? How, if whites actually followed the rules these people have created, there wouldn't be any whites around to follow the rules?

    I guess this is where some shows go to die. It's odd how other shows seem to have diversity mostly in the background (e.g., Whedon's SHIELD show, at least so far) so they can appease the left's fire god without committing hara kiri like TWD.

    " Donald Trump denies rape of teenage girl at 'sex party with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein'"

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/donald-trump-denies-rape-teenage-7857357

    US presidential hopeful Donald Trump has denied claims he raped a woman when she was a teenager.

    The Republican front-runner has been accused of attacking the alleged victim with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

    The bombshell claim threatens to derail Trump’s bid for the White House , as he is currently on course to win the party’s nomination for the November election.

    The billionaire businessman responded last night saying the allegations are "categorically false”.

    The alleged victim, who lodged her claim in the Central District Court of California on Tuesday, is suing for $100m.

    While the Mirror does not usually name victims of sexual abuse, the woman has identified herself in court papers as Kate Johnson, and plans to defend herself in court.

    She accused Trump and fellow billionaire Epstein of “sexual abuse under threat of harm” and “conspiracy to deprive civil rights.”

    In her claim, Johnson “alleges she was enticed by promises of money and modelling career to attend a series of underage sex parties held at the New York City residence of defendant Jeffrey E Epstein and attended by Donald J Trump.”
