I must admit to a certain bemusement to the reaction from certain quarters in response to Trump’s weekend tweets – Trump has been known to be a misogynistic bigoted racist since he stood shoulder to shoulder with his KKK father, Fred, in the 1970’s as they blocked ANY black from access to any of their rental apartments while at the same time raking in money from the government in the form of low-rent subsidies for the poor.
Trump, of course, denies having a single racist bone in his body, which is undoubtedly correct, since, to my knowledge, there is NO SUCH THING as a “racist bone”, in the first place.
Actually I suspect that Trump’s “bigotry” and “racism” comes more from his idealization of his father than any great mental effort on his own part – Trump idolized his “racist” father and he continues that idolization to this day by idolizing anyone who “emulates” his father’s positions.
I will note, in passing, however, that from this point, forward ANY PERSON who claims to support Donald John Trump is doing so in the full knowledge that they are supporting a misogynistic bigoted racist, and, as such you are allying yourself with all that he espouses and all that he stands for – and, quite frankly, to my mind, Trump and his supporters make the slime molds living on the walls of Hell appear as the Seraphim in heaven, by comparison! They are what my grandmother referred to as “White Trash” as opposed to “Poor White Trash”!
(by way of explanation, in the Southern hierarchy or “social strata”, you had “the Blacks” as we refer to them, now, . Below them were the “Poor White Trash” – these were whites who, while poverty stricken, had at least the possibility of pulling themselves up “by their bootstraps”, as it were. At the very bottom were the “White Trash”. These unfortunate souls had at times raised themselves quite high among the classes while maintaining essentially the very basest of lowborn qualities – in other words, Donald J. Trump.)
