We already know Donald Trump is a statist dick weasel. What, with his love for eminent domain that allows him to use the courts to line his own pockets, his desire to control parts of the Internet, his intention to force Apple to move production to the United States, his refusal to rule out registering people based on their religion, and his insistence that Americans can be deprived of their rights without due process, is there really much more proof that’s needed here?
Scrolling through my Twitter feed this weekend, I came across this retweet. Trump thought it would be amusing to give some publicity and retweet a post by a proud white supremacist.
Several media outlets found this to be a worthy story, with at least one openly questioning whether this was just a failure to do the research.
“Was it a genuine mistake?” Asks the Inquisitr.
I mean, we’ve all made the mistake of posting something we didn’t properly research, right? It happens. We’re human.
But after quite a few Twitter users responded that “Donald Trumpovitz” (who has since changed his Twitter handle to “Bernie 4 Prez” and completely changed the look of his account to look as if he was a Sanders supporter) was an openly anti-Semitic, white supremacist troll,
Trump said nothing, and didn’t even bother removing the post. A cursory scan of @WhiteGenocideTM’s account would have revealed that this is not something a presidential candidate should be promoting. The fact that the account’s location proudly states “Jewmerica,” the fact that its avatar is a picture of George Lincoln Rockwell – the founder of the American Nazi Party – or the fact that it openly talks about “race mixers,” while posting vile photos of Jews on its Twitter feed, might have given Trump or his Twitter minions a clue about just what kind of account this was.
But Trump doesn’t care.
Trump has tossed out all pretense of having any respect for his voters. He thinks they’re so
loyal frothing, nothing could possibly make them abandon him. “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” he joked this weekend. “My people stay.”
And you know what? His drooling acolytes may just prove the egomaniacal shit heel right.
The same day he retweeted the neo-nazi filth, his campaign posted a campaign video that mistook Soviets for U.S. military veterans. The campaign replaced the video with one that cut out the Soviets a few hours later, but still… For someone who claims he will take care of our vets and be the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces, he might want to brush up on what U.S. troops actually look like.
After I posted a link to Trump’s new racist BFF, a Trumproid replied that it was just a “typo,” and then promptly blocked me.
They don’t want to hear it. Trump’s gibbering sycophants don’t care what he does or says. They don’t care about his history. They blindly drool that they support him in order to challenge the establishment, even as he brags that he’s a part of it. They’re showing the same blind devotion to Trump as Obama supporters show the President, and that’s scary. It’s like we haven’t learned anything.
By the way, if you want to see the original video about Trump’s promise to hold the VA accountable, it’s here. Soviet medals and all.
