It seems lately that the Trumpeters will commit endless backflips to support the lies and hypocrisy of their esteemed leader. Indeed we have posters proclaiming that Trump does not lie all the while berating the lying media.

The latest turning of the tables is the notion that Trump is not racist. In fact he himself said he is the least racist person. Kind of like one who says 'I'm not racist, but...', and some mealy-mouthed vomit inducing racial diatribe comes out.

Normally I'd be the first to criticize a Trumpeter claiming he's not racist, but I've come around, so here is an abridged list of some of the non-racist things Trump has said.

The apple appear to not fall far from the tree, as we can see with the arrest of one Fred Trump at a KKK rally. There is no definitive proof that Fred Trump was a KKK supporter or member, other than he was arrested at a Klan Rally, but attending a Klan Rally and being arrested certainly does not mean one is a racist.



Trump denies the event ever took place, not even the arrest of his father, but of course Trump cannot lie, so therefore this event definitely never took place.

Forward to 1973, and we see Trump going to court for alleged racial discrimination at Trump housing developments in New York, refusing to rent apartments to African-Americans.

www.npr.org...


The lawsuit was based on evidence gathered by testers for the New York City Human Rights Division, which alleged that black people who went to Trump buildings were told there were no apartments available, while white people were offered units.

Back then, Sheila Morse worked as one of those testers. When a black New Yorker was turned down for service and racial bias was suspected, Morse, who is white, would be dispatched to see if she received different treatment.

In this case, a black man in search of an apartment in Brooklyn in 1972 saw a sign on a building: "apartment for rent."

"He met with the superintendent, and the superintendent said, 'I'm very sorry, but the apartment is rented — it's gone,' " Morse says. "So the gentlemen said to him, 'Well, why is the sign out? I still see a sign that says apartment for rent.' And the superintendent said, 'Oh, I guess I forgot to take it down.' "

When Morse went to the building to ask about the same apartment, she says, "They greeted me with open arms and showed me every aspect of the apartment."


Not racist of course, because Trump is the least racist person ever. As this 'least racist' person morphed into a bloviated tabloid celebrity, he developed a reputation for agitating the public about racially-charged issues.

See the case of the Central Park 5.

www.nytimes.com...


In 1989, after these black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were accused of assaulting and raping a white woman in Central Park, Mr. Trump spent $85,000 placing full-page ads in the four daily papers in New York City, calling for the return of the death penalty.

“Muggers and murderers,” he wrote, “should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes.” Though he didn’t refer to the teenagers by name, it was clear to anyone in the city that he was referring to them.


Even when they were cleared, Trump doubled-down, showing he's no racist.


Incredibly, 14 years after their sentences were vacated based on DNA evidence and the detailed and accurate confession of a serial rapist named Matias Reyes, Mr. Trump has doubled down.

“They admitted they were guilty,” he said in a statement to CNN this month. “The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous.”


This is also not racist, how could this possibly be?

After gaining the support of David Duke, Trump claims he had never heard of the man..

The New York Times (yes, I know, #fakenews) gives us even more examples of Trump's record of non-racism.

www.nytimes.com...


Trump treated black employees at his casinos differently from whites, according to multiple sources. A former hotel executive said Trump criticized a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks.”



He began his 2016 presidential campaign with a speech disparaging Mexican immigrants as criminals and “rapists.”



Trump said a federal judge hearing a case about Trump University was biased because of the judge’s Mexican heritage.



In June 2017, Trump said 15,000 recent immigrants from Haiti “all have AIDS” and that 40,000 Nigerians, once seeing the United States, would never “go back to their huts” in Africa.


No, seriously not racist at all.


Trump falsely claimed that President Obama “issued a statement for Kwanzaa but failed to issue one for Christmas.”


So true, and so non race baiting. I really admire the man for telling it like it is.

His retweeting of white nationalists, without apology is also not racist. His quotes on Charlottesville, also really not racist. I

I often find it not racist to defend Nazis and white nationalists and to say there were “very fine” people on both sides of the Charlottesville violence.

When arguing with people it always logical to support known racists, because it is actually not racist and the only racists are the people using the term racist.


Trump endorsed and campaigned for Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate who spoke positively about slavery and who called for an African-American Muslim member of Congress not to be seated because of his religion.


Slavery was also excellent and totally not racist.


Trump has trafficked in anti-Semitic caricatures, including the tweeting of a six-pointed star alongside a pile of cash. He has also been reluctant to condemn anti-Semitic attacks on journalists from his supporters, and he echoed neo-Nazi conspiracy theories by saying that Hillary Clinton “meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors.”


I guess Jews aren't a race like Muslims so not racist. Neo-Nazis, totally not racist.

There is of course all the birther nonsense, also really not racist.

This list of non-racist comments, controversies and non-racist dog-whistling is short and incomplete, but it certainly illustrates the non-racism of one Donald John Trump.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it doesn't mean it is a duck.

I’ll address one of those...

It wasn’t the Star Of David...

Or are all possible variations of 6 pointed stars now Jewish?


He has also been reluctant to condemn anti-Semitic attacks on journalists from his supporters, and he echoed neo-Nazi conspiracy theories by saying that Hillary Clinton “meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors.”


Hahaha...
That is not a “neo-Nazi conspiracy”...

It’s a well established fact to anyone who knows anything about the world’s current system of monetary control.
Wow, what an unbelievably ridiculous example to use. Too funny.


The only legitimate examples were the housing scandal and the retweets.
The rest are complete nonsense or so far unverified.

Is it reasonable to visit the sins of the father onto the son? My parents are mildly racist and I'm not. It happens. Families can have Conservative kids and Liberal parents and vice versa. If Trump's dad was a philanthropist would anyone be arguing Trump must be a nice guy too?

I don't like him at all. It's still the case that the media is engaged in toppling the guy by what I would call overreach. Taking it to the point of 'bad families' is too much imo.

I over heard someone say that they heard a rumor that President Trump didn't like chocolate. The man is obviously a racist. Then the other day I read somewhere that he didn't like lemon heads, I am not sure what that means at the moment, but more than likely it is racist.

That guy is just a crazy, racist, vindictive, horrible, money making, scheming, dirty rotten filthy scoundrel.

There ya go. Do you feel better now?

See Kad, I would be happy to discuss all the errors the POTUS makes. Believe it or not, I do have my gripes as well. However since the masses want to play partisan politics and gulp the bait, I choose to play in the absurd pits formed from the fallout here.

Some anti-Trump threads are pro-Trump threads if you read the bulk of replies. They just don't set out that way.

Yeah, we've all got to live with it.

I think folks should have a large amount of skepticism toward their leaders and they certainly shouldn't be beyond reproach. However, as threads like these indicate, folks missed all the relevant and factual information that could produce topics of value and instead chose to put together subjective and what certainly could be disinformation and create these diatribes that have been going on all year.

65% of Americans didn't vote in the last election, yet small portions of the 45% that did seem to yell the loudest.

Pretty close, but probably not anti-semitic, just reminiscent of the Star of David, no dog whistling or anything like that, not from totally non-racist Trump.

After all, Trump has never engaged in race-baiting, praising white nationalists, attacking Muslims, nor Mexicans.

He also stated that some fine people at Charlottesville shouted 'Jews will not replace us', also not anti-semitic.

He's a truthful man you can believe.

www.politifact.com...


Soon after Trump tweeted the image, some social media users began question whether the use of a six-pointed star to slam Clinton -- particularly when combined with piles of money -- amounted to the use of anti-Semitic imagery and age-old stereotypes.

Such concerns had arisen in response to previous Trump tweets. For instance, Trump twice retweeted from the feed of the Twitter account @WhiteGenocideTM, which claims to be located in "Jewmerica" and regularly posts anti-Semitic material, and once from the now-defunct account @cheesedbrit, which had an account page that featured Swastika art and said in part, "we Should have listened to the Austrian chap with the little moustache" -- that is, Adolf Hitler. And Trump also attracted criticism when he initially said he didn’t know who former KKK leader David Duke was.

At 11:19 am, less than two hours after the original tweet, the Trump account sent out a new image -- one that was identical except that the words "Most corrupt candidate ever!" were placed in a red circle rather than a star. The original tweet was deleted some time during that roughly two-hour period.

No he isn’t.
He is absolutely full of sh*t and the most prolific fabricator I’ve ever witnessed on any stage in my life time.

Threads like this remind me of his tactics.
Maybe don’t do that in future?

Mixing truths, half truths, rumours, and bullsh*t.

It’s not satirical or humourous.

"The mirror doesn't comprehend the reflection." -Unknown.

I think that is an apt description to what we see from the Oval Office to the folks in the streets.

Voter percentages are insignificant. Beyond measure.

You could let just 3 individuals vote out of all 350m, and they’d still have to choose between the same 2 pieces of garbage the parties select.
