In Donald Trump's interview this week with CBS's Leslie Stahl, he was asked about "all those racist followers of his who have been insulting minorities and making them feel so frightened". Trump looked at the camera and told them to stop it. This is while the poor little cupcakes were marching in cities all over America, waving Mexican flags and posters about how racist white people are, and in the case of Portland, Oregon, rioting. Frankly, outside of some middle school students in Michigan or someplace who were chanting, "Build the wall" in a classroom, I don't know what Ms. Stahl was talking about. I do know that a 49-year-old motorist was attacked by a mob of black teens in Chicago and beaten up because they sensed he was a Trump voter. I do know that a Black Lives Matter activist, a female, has been charged with assaulting a 74-year-old male Trump supporter in New York. Last night on The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly was debating with Brian Levin, who heads up some hate crime center at California State University at San Bernardino. O'Reilly argued that there have only been a couple of police-documented hate crimes directed at minorities in connection with the election.
At any rate, the number on each side will eventually play out although our thoroughly discredited media will sweep the anti-Trump, anti-white incidents under the rug as they always do. The point I want to make is that now that Trump has gone on the record, where is Hillary Clinton? Where is Barack Obama? Where is Bernie Sanders? Should they not now call on the protesters to tone it down-especially as regards those who rioted in Portland? Should they not tell their followers that Donald Trump will, indeed, be their president? Or are these individuals content to just sit back and enjoy the spectacle of thousands of people marching around the country, occasionally breaking things and assaulting cops and other people to demonstrate how "afraid" they are? It seems to me they are enjoying the "show of support" as well as the backlash against Trump.
On the other hand, maybe we should keep quiet and not give all these people advice. After all, the more and the longer they demonstrate, the more they engage in violence and thuggery, the more Clinton, Obama and Sanders keep their silence, the public observes and takes note of who is really on the wrong side.
Disregard everything I said.
