Yes, Donald Trump is a Racist and Islamophobe

Jeanine Pirro, March 9, 2019:

“Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

This is what an Islamophobic statement looks like. Not to be confused with the statement improperly characterized as anti-Semitic that the referenced Congresswoman Omar made. For this, Pirro appears to be in some unstated limbo with Fox News. She was condemned for the statement and has had one Saturday show “disappeared” from Foxs’ schedule. We know no more than that at this time.

One Week later, on Friday, March 15, 2019, 50 people are murder and at least 50 injured by a white supremacist in New Zealand. The murderer mentions Donald Trump as one of his inspirations and refers to Muslim immigrants as an “invasion” to predominately white nations.

In response to the massacre, Trump issues an ill-considered, hallmark card type tweet of “best wishes”.

Also on March 15, In a make-shift press conference for Trump’s vetoing of the bill to halt his money-grab for his anti-immigrant statement in the useless wall, Trump read a short prepared statement of support for New Zealand. He did not mention Islamophobia, hate crimes, or racism. He did not denounce any type of hate. He did immediately mention after the statement, that he had his “angel parents” with him- referring to those whom had a child murdered by an illegal immigrant, and then continued with a prepared speech regarding the Veto. Trump highlighted the incredible danger pouring in through the southern border in the way of drugs, human trafficking, and wanton murder that immigrants represented.

Now I will highlight the ad-lib, larger portion of his statement, that is the real Donald Trump:

Trump said, “People hate the word ‘invasion,’ but that’s what it is. It’s an invasion of drugs and criminals, and people-we have no idea who they are.” Let’s not pretend for a second that Trump didn’t purposefully present this word with special emphasis.

In reference to asylum seekers in country:

“When you release them (asylum seekers), they come into our society, and in many cases they’re stone cold criminals…and in many cases you have killers coming in and murderers coming in and we’re not going to allow that to happen.”

Trump’s rhetoric is describing all immigrants from the southern border. All of them. There is no differentiation between any of the very few that may have illegally crossed and turned out to be a murderer and those that have legally applied for asylum and are in detention awaiting asylum hearings.

“Changing the asylum laws which are so unfair, changing the visa lottery, chain migration. These laws are just horrendous, I won’t explain them, but everybody standing behind me knows exactly what they are. They’re dangerous for our country,” and right back to the southern border, “The border crisis is the drug crisis…” followed by statements about MS13 and more drug stuff and killers yada yada.

Now we’re getting closer to the truth, aren’t we. Aside from Norwegians, exactly who should be allowed to migrate to this country? This administrations migration policies speak for themselves.

Reporter: “Do White Nationalists pose a rising threat around the world?”

Trump: “I don’t really, I think its a small group of people that have serious problems. I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that’s the case, I don’t know enough about it, they’re just learning about the person and the people involved. but it’s certainly a terrible thing.”

White nationalism isn’t a problem. Trump doesn’t know anything about it; nobody knows anything about it. It’s limited to some outlier events by crazy people. Not a problem. End of story.

Finally, amidst Trump’s bukkake-tweetathon of the last two days:

Trump retweets this because it brings him pleasure:

He shows his solidarity with Tucker’s scumminess/racism and Judge Jeanine’s Islamophobia. Fox shouldn’t bow to being “politically correct,” they should instead “Fight for our country,” by allowing their hosts to present Islamophobic ideas.

Donny retweets this:

It is entirely clear what Donald Trump’s viewpoints are on racism and Islamophobia.

Trump’s history with Islamophobia.

Russia Invades Ukraine Dec. 14-15

Since the Russian created tensions in the Kerch Strait between Russia and Ukraine, the US and NATO have done little to rectify the Russian seizure of Ukrainian vessels and abduction of 24 Ukrainian sailors.  The sailors have since been moved to Moscow where they are being treated as prisoners of war.

The Trump administration, in response to complaints that Donald Trump does nothing in response to Putin’s aggression, often points out how tough Trump is because of actions that the federal government has taken in response to Putin’s hostilities, as if they are one and the same.  They are not the same.  This is a case-in-point.

Donald Trump’s statements regarding Russian aggression have been, “I’m not happy,” and “They need to figure it out.”   In other words, he doesn’t give a fuck and he’s not going to do anything.  But will the US?

The US diplomatic corps, in the persons of U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine, Kurt Volker and Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, have voiced their opinions that Russia’s aggression is in violation of international law.
NATO head, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, also demanded an immediate release of the sailors and a concern as to what the Russians have in mind as they amass troops along the eastern border of Ukraine.

This is a time when luke-warm pronouncements from Sec. State Mike Pompeo is not going to cut it.  Trump needs to speak out now and in no uncertain terms.  We need leadership now that would cause Putin concern and forcibly shape his actions.

According to Ukrainian news outlet Radiolemberg, The Russians are preparing to invade Eastern Ukraine in order to acquire a land bridge from Western Russia to Crimea and complete their control of the Azov Sea.  Radiolemberg even has a date for an invasion: December 14th or 15th. 

In a strange interplay of propaganda and fake news, the Russian’s are declaring that Ukraine plans on blowing up their own industrial complex in Mariupol, Ukraine on Dec. 14th and blaming it on Russia and Russian backed separatists in order to start a direct military confrontation with Russian troops.  Who would do something that crazy?  Who would kill their own people in order to start a war with someone else?

Putin would.

All evidence points to Putin’s orchestration of the 1999 apartment bombing in Russia which killed over 300 russian civilians.  These bombings were the catalyst for a fabricated second Chechen war from which Putin consolidated power and ascended to the presidency of Russia.

Alternately Radiolemberg offers the following day, Dec.15, as a likely date for Russian to invade Ukraine as this is the day of the convening of the unification council for the creation of anautocephalous Ukrainian Orthodox Church to separate itself from the Russian orthodoxy.

Do we think Russia will actually invade Ukraine in December?  I doubt it, but that’s not the whole point of this exercise, is it.  The continuing and ongoing effort of Russia is to undermine, confuse, confound, and divide…and it’s working.  Russia will continue to arm rebels in eastern Ukraine and eventually they will have their land bridge around the Azov Sea through their separatists, then they will act as overlords of that sea.  Once that is complete, if no one halts their incremental progress, they will continue to chip away at Ukraine until nothing is left.

The administration says, “No one is tougher on Russia than Trump.  No one.”  But if you search, you will not find a single instance in which Trump has directly spoken out against Russian aggression or Putin’s long term plans to recreate the Soviet Empire, despite whatever the US government may have done.

This is the time when we need a US President to stand up and say, “We see what you are doing Russia.  This is not acceptable to us.  Withdraw your forces from the Ukrainian border, cease your hostilities, and end your clear support and involvement in Ukrainian unrest.”  Putin needs to know this is the truth, but he has absolutely no reason to believe that at this time. 

Putin will keep pushing unless he has reason to believe it is not in his best interests to do so.
