Still support him, Trumproids?

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?

Apparently, yes.

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.

trump neo nazi

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,

The original account before the Internet outrage hit.

The original account before the Internet outrage hit.

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.

Yes, those really are Soviet medals.

Yes, those really are Soviet medals.

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.

  1. Niki, what you and your neighbors in Washington have to understand is that it’s not about Trump it’s about Washington. The country is hurting and being hurt by the people in Washington and they want it to stop. They’ve tried protesting. They’ve tried voting. Yet all we see is more of the same. You people in DC may think we are a bunch of knuckledraggers out here in the real country, but until you people in DC stop trying to wreck the country the people are going to keep trying to send the message. If the message means that we elect somebody as repulsive as Trump, and trust me, I know him better than you folks in DC do, Trump is going to get elected. Because if things keep going the way they are going, eventually we out here, struggling to feed our families, keep jobs and get out from under the huge tax and debt burden the clowns in DC dump on us are going to say, enough and water that tree.

      1. Niki, most of Trump’s supporters are people who aren’t politically literate and if they know anything about Trump at all, it’s what they see on his TV shows, which is a caricature Trump. On the other hand you have millions of people in my age group who’ve been forced out of work by O’care just as we need to earn something for retirement. You have millions of 20 year olds who h=can’t find jobs. And you have a political class who seems determined to increase immigration and disenfranchise them. And you wonder why they grab for the first guy who says that he’s going to kick the invaders out? As I said, nobody trusts your neighbors to do the right things because they’ve failed and failed and can’t even see the catastrophe that they have created. Trump is an effect, not a cause.

    2. Kamas716: Are you honestly claiming that Trump is on the “right” or in any way a conservative? There is not a single policy he has espoused that is conservative. His positions on illegal immigration, terrorism, healthcare, etc., are all versions of a certain slice of 1% discontent, e.g. Hollywoods blowback against racist charges. It’s similar to the blue on blue attacks in the universities. It’s one part of the left attacking its own ruling class for mismanagement and excess. To make any kind of claim that Trump is on the “right” shows a gross ignorance of his past positions on gay marriage, eminent domain, immigration, national health care, and the fact that he voted for Obama and never criticizes liberals.

  3. Trumproids? It’s early days yet. Nothing has been decided. Whoever runs against shrillary and Bernie may get the vote. Bloomerbutt has stated that he will spend one BILLION dollars — not a joke — to get elected.
    If these twigs it’s only about how much money you spend, or how loud you can shout, or how many ‘trigger’ words you can come up with, they’re partly right, but they are partly wrong, too. And they aren’t in the majority. I don’t think there is a majority right now.

    However, the one good thing that THE don has done is blow the lid off the PC box and let some light into the moldy interior. It was badly needed, but now he is simply repeating himself like the obnoxious jackass he is. I think any bright and articulate individual in this country could debate him on real issues and win. I see that Bernie the Braindead is pounding his lectern for a $15/hour minimum wage, which shows a clear lack of understanding of business and simple economics. Shrillary continues to do that ‘deer in the headlights’ thing when she speaks, but she’s under investigation for her insecure servers. And no one is listening to the quieter candidates, who may even be speaking about real issues that need to be addressed, because the loud-mouthed twatwaffle from NYC can’t zip his yap. And the more he runs his flapping yap, the more people slip away from him. I guess he’s forgotten that eminent domain can be used on him, too. 🙂

    This looks like it’s going to be a very interesting campaign season.

  4. Short answer: Yes.

    Somewhat longer answer, just for the sake of argument let’s say Trump’s a racist neo-nazi. (He isn’t, and the very idea that he is is ridiculous, but you already know that. That’s why despite trying to tar him by association you don’t actually come out and say he is.) But let’s say he is. I don’t care.

    I don’t know the man personally and we’re not going to be bffs and it’s unlikely we’ll ever even meet face to face. So who he is as a person is completely unimportant to me. There’s only one thing that matters to me. And that is, if he does become President, what will he do?

    The funny thing is, I don’t know the answer to that question. I know what he claims he’ll do, but will he actually follow through? Or is it all BS? I don’t know. But I do know the answer for every other candidate. And that is they will all do essentially the same thing, with minor variations. So if you’re happy with the way things have gone for the last couple of decades, vote for one of them. It doesn’t really matter which one.

  5. No I read just fine. I understand even better.

    The idea that he should vet someone before he retweets a joke is silly, at best. Why should he care? He shouldn’t, but folks like yourself will try to make hay out of it and will partake in the very same games the Left has played against the Right for years. Which is why I find your imputations of his character so laughable.

    But getting back to his character, no it doesn’t matter. Not even a little bit. The only thing that matters is what he will do in office if he gets in.

    You say you’re unhappy with the way things have gone, so what do you plan to do? Vote 3rd party? I’ve done that as a protest vote myself for years. And I’ll go back to it if I’m unsatisfied with Trump’s turn in office. (Assuming he gets in.) Not vote for President at all? I know plenty of people who do that due to the poor choices we’re given, and I certainly couldn’t blame you for it.

    Or do you have a candidate from one of the two major parties that you do support? If so then I would like to note that no matter which one it is, supporting them is equivalent to saying you want more of what we’ve had for the last 20+ years.

His ability to correct the course when needed. His respect for the constitution. It all goes to character. Yeah… You don’t care. You’re part of the problem. A huge one.

      Wrong, his character is only one part of things. Example: Say you hire a man who has a sterling character, but is bad at math to be your bookkeeper. He’ll never steal money from you, but your business will still have financial trouble because he isn’t competent to do the job. Character and ability are not the same thing. And again, if good character is your major criteria then you shouldn’t vote for any of the major party candidates, because none of them have one.

      As far as me being a “huge” part of the problem, that’s a laughable accusation as well. Remember what I said previously, up till now I’ve voted 3rd party in national elections as a protest vote. So I haven’t helped to elect the people causing the problems. And even if I had, my one vote (I’ve only contributed more than a vote to one campaign and that’s because it was a friend in a local election, and he lost) wouldn’t be a “huge” part by any means. (Our electoral system guarantees that.) This is why I can’t take folks like you seriously when you start talking about character. You say things that are obviously untrue in an attempt to make an ultimately unimportant point. If you yourself can’t show character in this context, who are you to lecture about other people’s character?

      There is one way your accusation makes sense. And that is if you’re one of those that thinks that some past major party candidate would have fixed everything if he’d just gotten enough support, and that I’m a bad guy for not having given it. In which case, you’re just deluded.

  16. It’s funny you bring this up today. Just the night before last I mentioned to my wife that Trump reminds me of the run of the mill cult-of-personality budding dictator. Like many of them (I studied Russian at college and was the navy equivalent of a 98G ((I think it is)) when I served ’67 – ’71), he promises to make the system work for people. My nickname for him is now Benito Trump-olini. He worries me as much for what he can and will do as for what he can’t but will promise the voters. Most of our problems of late haven’t been from the ineffectiveness of the political system, they’ve been because one side co-opted the others so the natural brakes in the system failed at critical times.

    Love the blog. You make me think of the coffee mug a minister friend gave my wife: “I don’t spew profanities. I enunciate them clearly, like a fucking lady;” Press on!

  20. Holly Shit some of you people are stupid. I said this other places and I’ll say it here, If it is Trump vs Hillary, I am F***ing voting for Hillary as it would be the only way that would even have the slightest chance of saving this country and returning it to it’s roots. There is no difference between Hillary’s positions and Trump’s true and well documented positions. Every thing you are afraid that Hillary will attempt to do, Trump will attempt to do. The only difference is that Hillary is running as a democrat and there for the republicans will offer at least some resistance on some things, so she won’t get every thing she wants to get. Trump on the other hand is a “republican” and therefore the weak spined republicans will have no issue backing trump given the bipartisan support to actually get every thing Hillary would have tried to get.

    That’s not even the worst of it. Trump being elected will completely destroy the Republican Party (seriously all those of you are like burn it all down, are retarded. The only thing that will burn down is the Republican party, the Democratic party will only become stronger) for years to come. That will have two major effects on the US. First the obvious you can kiss good bye of a conservative leaning government for at least a decade or more. Second and probably worst, the supreme court will fully go to the liberals. If trump is elected he is not going to place a conservative on the bench if one stepped down followed by an absolute minimum of at least two election cycles by the democrats. That’s 12 years at least at the absolute minimum for even the slight chance to be able to replace a conservative with a conservative. In reality it would probably be closer to 20 if at all. One conservative judge is 80 years old 12 years for a chance to replace him is really pushing it, at 20 there is pretty much no chance in hell. With Hillary on the other hand wining the election that’s only 4 years before we get another chance. That’s a whole lot better odds the conservative judges last that long. Hopefully I don’t need to explain why it would be extremely bad if Liberals gain control of the supreme court.

    I swear you people that support trump even as a last resort are like an abused girlfriend actually naively believing her abusive boyfriend when he says “Baby, I have really changed” just a couple of months after he put her in the hospital.
    At least with Hillary it’s more like the abused girlfriend having a gun pointed at the abusive boyfriend waiting for him to leave. It might still get ugly but at least the girlfriend has a chance.

      The problem with Trumproids is that there’s no convincing them. His little joke about shooting someone in the middle of 5th Ave. has a grain of truth in it. You can show them all the information possible about him supporting Democrats, about him wanting to suppress freedom of speech, about him wanting to use government force against his fellow citizens, etc. etc. etc. ad nauseam. Problem is they don’t listen. So I’ve stopped trying. Now I just ridicule them, because there’s nothing left to do. They will do what they do, and no amount of factual information will stop them.

I still cling forlornly to the hope that his strong organization and widespread financial support will carry his campaign through to the nomination.

    BTW, I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the Pauls, and I voted for Ron Paul when he was on the Libertarian ticket, but his son Rand Paul is just too isolationist for a dangerous world in which isolation seems to lead all too quickly to eruptions of war from emboldened thug regimes. This makes me sad, not that Rand Paul seems to have much chance anyway of holding the support of more than a few delegates at the Republican National Convention.

    You know, we really get tired of hearing how Trump supporters are low information, less educated, knuckle dragging morons. I’m sure some are. I’m also sure most are not. I’m also sure the insults now roll off of us like water off of a duck, with about as much effect. Most of us have contributed, worked in campaigns, and written our congressmen and senators to beg, plead, and demand a change. And we all know exactly how we’ve been used by the political class for the last 20 years. Many of us see this as the last chance. A “Hail Mary” pass to stop the insanity of mass immigration, both legal and illegal, that will forever stymie any conservative principles being put into effect. Not to mention staving off the clash of cultures we are witnessing in Europe. We only know that if Trump does indeed build the wall, and I think his ego is too big to allow him to walk away from that promise, we will have gotten more from him than we have gotten from the GOPe in 30 years. As a bonus, we will have bought some time to turn the country around. And if Trump doesn’t build the wall, at least we will get screwed by someone new. If he attempts to be the “dictator” you seem to fear he will be, just maybe the GOPe can grow enough balls to stop him, as they seem to hate him much more than they do Obama, who certainly has been dictating to the GOPe for the last 7 years. You simply can’t imagine how little we care about what you and the “ruling class” believe anymore. You have no plan to stop immigration, just your “trust me, you idiots, we know best” line echoed by the MSM, the ruling class, and the political talking heads, to vote for yet another politician in the long line of those that have ignored and ridiculed us. Your collective credibility is less than worthless. And that is why you will see a President Trump being sworn in in less than 12 months.

  27. Roger Kimball recently wrote a long, illuminating piece on the Donald Trump phenomenon:

    “[….] It is the utter irrelevance of substance to their enthusiasm and, consequently, their imperviousness to argument. To listen to Trump’s fans, you would think that he was a conservative hero, a modern-day Hercules set on flushing the Augean Stables of Washington of the filth and incompetence accreted there by decades of scratch-my-back-I’ll-scratch-your-back cronyism. In fact, he has consistently supported the left-wing, big-government, crony-capitalist, morally latitudinarian agenda they say they are against. Consider the litany compiled by Breitbart, which goes through Trump’s positions on immigration, foreign policy, abortion, same-sex marriage, religious freedom, entitlements, campaign finance reform, government involvement in the economy, education, healthcare, trade, and guns. It’s an illuminating recital, or it would be if Trump’s actual stated positions made any difference to his fans.”

    You are correct. Only thing I’ve read of yours is this pitiful string of comments. All I hear is fear of Trump becoming a dictator of some sort. Like we are not headed down that road as fast as we can go with the progressives amassing a voting majority from the illegals and other immigrants, the majority of who are coming here for the welfare benefits and will vote to keep those benefits flowing. If you are not telling us to put our faith in someone of the GOP establishment, instead of Trump, then what in God’s name are you trying to tell us? I put my faith in no one man, and think a COS will be required to bring about a real return to conservative roots. But that dream, and any other conservative initiatives, will never happen if we continue to be flooded with illegals. We know you despise Trump. We thinking conservatives simply want him to seal the borders. What, exactly, or Who is it that you trust to get that done? Or are you so illogical that you think that is not THE issue of this election year?

    1. Trump is not going to do a fucking thing about illegal immigration. Just 4 years ago he was talking about how RINO Mitt Romney stance was to Fucking tough. On top of that the wall idea is really fucking retarded. The type wall that would be built would cost hundreds of millions maybe even billions of dollars, and will do jack shit to even slow the rate of illegal immigration as it would take illegal immigrants a whooping 30 seconds to get through. If you want to build a wall that might be worth a damn than instead you would need to build it more like the one Israelis have been trying to build around Palestine for more than a decade now and they have only completed about half of it, and the full length will only be about a 1/4 of what the US mexico border would need to be. Such a wall would cost hundreds of billions if not trillions of dollars and at similar build rate to Israel would take 70 years to complete. A wall would be great in theory, but in reality the only wall we could possibly hope to get will do jack shit to help much less fix the problem.

      In the mean time, even if Trump was elected and actually attempted the building the wall, he would pretty much every thing Hillary and the democrats would have tried to pass but without any resistance, because “deal maker” Trump is full blown NY liberal.

      1. You’ve got a lot to learn, if you’re not a Democrat shill. For most of the 20th century every country in the U.S.S.R. had walls (they were actually fences, but they got the job done) that effectively sealed their borders from both incursions and attempted escapees. West Berlin had a wall around it that effectively stopped human movement. The Great Wall of China was built and used for a reason. Hadrian’s Wall in Great Britain. Walls around fortresses into time immemorial. Today the Israeli wall. What you’re saying is essentially that “it’s impossible to control borders,” which is demonstrably false. The vehemence of your assertions, like those of Nicki, are inversely proportional to their accuracy.

      Now if your willing to murder men women an children you might have an effective way to keep people out.

    “walls would cost hundreds of millions” – and what, exactly, do you think it’s costing the taxpayers to pay welfare benefits for all the new legal and illegal immigrants? Are you that obtuse?
    “walls wouldn’t work” – Right. Tell that to Israel. They’re effectively using walls to stop terrorists. Tell that to the White House, that recently improved the fence around it. Get real.
