Q: What do irrational people do these days when they don’t agree with your politics?
A: They call you a racist.
President Trump is a racist, they say. Anyone who agrees with any part of his politics is a racist. If you support Trump you are a racist. That’s the political and social atmosphere today. Every political or social motive is racist. Racists are irrationally seen behind every tree as I explained in detail earlier this month in my post: Racist mania.
Now all the Trump haters on the planet are crowing sanctimoniously about “more proof” that he’s a racist because he talked tough about his immigration policy during a closed door off the record bipartisan oval office meeting with congressional attendees. Naturally, a huge media controversy ensued.
Democratic Senator, Dick Durbin, got the racist mania ball rolling again when he told the media that Trump repeatedly complained during the meeting about immigrants from “shithole countries.”
"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” Trump tweeted in response. He characterized Durban’s claims as “Made up by Dems.”
There is no audio or visual record of what anyone said. So we have no choice but to consider the recollections of attendees who were there. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (AR) and David Perdue (GA) confirmed they don't recall those vulgar characterizations from the President.
Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Perdue said Trump did not make that comment. “The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive.”
Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Sen. Cotton said Durbin misrepresented Trump’s reported “shithole” comments. “I didn’t hear that word either,” Cotton said. “I certainly didn’t hear what Sen. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen. Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings, though, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by that… “I didn’t hear it. And I was sitting no farther away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was, and I know what Dick Durbin has said about the president’s repeated statements is incorrect.”
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was also an attendee. She said Sunday she doesn’t recall President Donald Trump’s reported comments about immigration from “shithole” countries. “The president is saying is he would like to move to merit-based, based on individuals. Whether individuals can come here and contribute to our society, help our economy and assimilating communities and help America be better,” she said. “I take a little bit of offense to the comments and suggestions that the president is racist. He's looking at the exact merit-based system they have in Australia and Canada. I'm sure that we are not, any of us, suggesting that Australia and ... Canada['s] leaders are racist.”
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky said Sunday that it is "unfair" to call President Donald Trump a racist. “I think it’s unfair to sort of paint him, ‘oh well, he’s a racist,’ when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul said.
“Donald Trump is not a racist,” actor/director/producer Clint Eastwood says in a 2016 interview with Esquire. “Get over it!” Young America — which he has dubbed both the “kiss-ass” and “pussy” generation — needs to stop throwing the word “racist” around so freely. “[Trump’s] onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” he said. “We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”
“Racism is just a word that is being bandied about and thrown… at the president unjustly,” said Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, Alveda King this week. “President Trump is not a racist.” She defended accusations of racism against Trump, calling his critics “outrageous.”
Appearing alongside President Trump at a White House event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Friday, the nephew of the late civil rights icon said he does not believe Trump is racist “in the traditional sense.”
After being ousted from her job as communications director in the Office of Public Liaison at the White House, Omarosa Manigault Newman still wants to stand behind the man who has had the opportunity to fire her not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times in the last 15 years. Omarosa claims in a new interview that Donald Trump is not racist.
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain wants to dispel “one of the biggest lies out there about Donald Trump”: that he’s a racist. “I wanna set the record straight because that’s what I do, as you know, on my radio show nearly every day… Why? Because there are a lot of lies out there. Allow me to set the record straight about one of the biggest lies out there about Donald Trump, and I hope the liberals and the liberal media’s listening… “Donald Trump is not a racist…. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. I know what a racist looks like when I see one, and Donald Trump is not a racist.”
Kara Young, who is biracial, was Trump’s girlfriend for two years in the ‘90s. She’s surprised that her ex-boyfriend is up to his neck in racial controversy. “I never heard him say a disparaging comment towards any race of people,” she told the New York Times.
In 2016 Rev. Jesse Jackson praises and thanks Donald Trump for a lifetime of service to African Americans
Let me make myself perfectly clear: President Trump is NOT and never has been a racist! This irrational racist mania in the political atmosphere of today is rendering the term “racist” meaningless. Eventually it’s going to boomerang against the Trump haters.
