“Racism Pure and Simple”

Share This:

In recent statements trump is waving the flag that represents himself and apparently a large part of the republican party:

The dog whistle days are apparently over.

As everyone knows, on Sunday Donald Trump attacked four progressive members of Congress, saying that they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” As it happens, three of the four were born in the U.S., and the fourth is a duly naturalized citizen. All are, however, women of color.

Sorry, there’s no way to both sides this, or claim that Trump didn’t say what he said. This is racism, plain and simple — nothing abstract about it. And Trump obviously isn’t worried that it will backfire.

As evidence of the implicit and not so implicit support by republican politicians, consider the strong, shocking and unsupported assertion by Sen. Lindsey Graham in an interview on Fox & Friends on Monday morning, “We all know that [Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel. They hate our own country.”
