Let’s see, Donald J Trump has been endorsed by David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of The KKK. What was it that David Duke said, “Finally a man who has our values!” You know, Mr. Duke has such a good opinion of people. Yes, maybe Mr. Duke has claimed more than once that most other races are lazy and live off the teet of his people.
No, Mr. Trump might not be a bigot but he shares some values with those who still burn crosses on people’s lawns. They don’t do that anymore but if The Donald gets in office, they might get the silent dog whistle to go for it. I find it interesting that a good percentage of his supporters don’t remember recent history.
Less than one hundred years ago, another man promised to make his country great again. He was going to hold those who had caused his country’s downfall accountable. What was it he said, “If Muslims or Mexicans drag us into yet another war, that will be the end of them.” I’m sorry I got mixed up, it wasn’t Muslims or Mexicans. You know as well as I do that it’s easy to blame scapegoats.
Trump might appeal to the guy stuck in his trailer in some back water swamp who thinks, “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that Mexican who could have taken my job. Hey Baby Girl, get me another beer!” No Trump might not be a bigot or a racist but he has awoken up something scary in the disenfranchised. This too will pass
