Donald Trump has a white supremacy problem. No, it’s not his scores and scores of white supremacist followers. It’s not even the guy who screamed “White Power” seven or eight times directly behind Trump at a White Person Rally in Mobile, Alabama (a city that is more than 50 percent African-American). It’s the fact that he won’t acknowledge the issue — and the fact that, for at least a period of his life, he literally kept a collection of Adolf Hitler’s speeches within arm’s reach while he slept.
By now, we all know that Donald Trump has “a great relationship with the blacks.” He tells us so himself. In fact, he has such a great relationship with “the blacks” that he wishes he was a “well-educated black” because “they have the actual advantage today.” Never mind that he was once sued by the Justice Department over his racist rental practices, or that he feels “laziness is a trait” in “blacks.”
But as much as Trump loves black people, who he says will absolutely vote for him, there’s one thing he will not allow a black man to do for him — count his money. For that, you need a Jewish dude:
“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”
Trump, who thinks that President Obama was born in Kenya, believes vaccines cause autism, and is quite certain that bombing “the hell out of the oil fields” in Iraq would decimate ISIS, despite his love of “the blacks,” is attracting hood-wearing, meth-addled, sister-marrying degenerates faster than a fried butter festival inside a time vortex to 1963 Birmingham, Alabama (or, as they call it, “the good old days”). Sure, Trump is more than a little racist — but that’s not why they love him; it’s that he’s the key to a White-Wing takeover of America.
On Stormfront, a haven for people with low IQs, too much time on their hands, and an irrational hatred for everyone whose skin isn’t as white as a Colgate cap, the crowd goes wild over Trump. One poster explained:
Imagine Trump tries to close the border and deport. Then the courts block him. Then he orders law enforcement to act anyway under presidential protection. This is an entirely possible scenario.
It’s also possible that just as Blacks saw Obama as a blanket mandate to riot and burn, marginalized White people might get funny ideas too under a Trump presidency. I think you will find White law enforcement and military highly disinclined to do anything as pro White street actions begin re-modelling large sections of our country.
But first he has to win.
“Trump is attacking the very underpinnings of White genocide which are third world invasion and political correctness,” another user said. “That is why every component of the machine, including the Republican party, wants him gone. Except the people don’t want it, and you can’t silence the people unless they want to be silenced.”
Not once has Donald Trump attempted to silence his vocal “not-racist” supporters. In fact, he defends them. For quite some time, Trump has been making the case that any Mexican you meet, anywhere, ever, is going to rape you, kill you, or give you drugs. He has promised to finally build the Great Wall of Stupid along the United States’ southern border (and force Mexicans to pay for it). Unsurprisingly, this led to violence.
“Donald Trump was right,” said two men as they beat homeless Hispanic man with a metal pipe and then urinated on him. “All these illegals need to be deported.” Trump called the attack “terrible,” reminding his fans and followers that “we need energy and passion, but we must treat each other with respect. I would never condone violence.”
But Trump wasn’t too worried about the incident. He later defended the men as patriots who just want to make America great again:
“I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country, they want this country to be great again.”
The victim in the attack is not undocumented, of course, but thanks to Trump’s demonization of an entire group of people as drug dealers, criminals, rapists, and any other number of scary buzzwords — just like Hitler — he was targeted.
Now, no one can accuse Trump of being antisemitic — after all, he demands that a Jewish guy count his money…always. But a 25-year-old Vanity Fair interview might reveal what it is about Trump that white supremacists find so appealing. His uber-nationalistic rhetoric, which seems hinged on demonizing “illegals,” is, quite literally, just like Hitler — which probably explains the copy of My New Order his ex-wife says he kept by his bedside:
Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. Kennedy now guards a copy of My New Order in a closet at his office, as if it were a grenade. Hitler’s speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist.
“Did your cousin John give you the Hitler speeches?” I asked Trump.
Trump hesitated. “Who told you that?”
“I don’t remember,” I said.
“Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of Mein Kampf, and he’s a Jew.”
Davis clarified that he is not Jewish, and that the book was indeed My New Order. “I did give him a book about Hitler,” he said. “But it was My New Order, Hitler’s speeches, not Mein Kampf. I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I’m not Jewish.”
If you’re a person wanting to learn the art of propaganda, then you need look no further than the fine works of Adolf Hitler — and it’s working. Trump, no matter how horrible he is, has surged to the top of the polls to become the frontrunner in the GOP race to be the person to lose to Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders — and he seems to have learned a lot from that collection of Mr. Tiny Moustache’s speeches.
In commentary posted on journalism institute Poynter’s web site, medical ethicist Art Caplan and media ethicist Kelly McBride have a lot to say about Trump’s rhetoric. “Can Trump win? It seems unlikely, especially after this weekend,” they wrote shortly after the billionaire called Mexicans rapists. “Of course that is what the media said about a funny-looking spewer of hate with an odd mustache who was dismissed as an awful public speaker and not a serious candidate in Germany in the 1930s.” They continued:
“We certainly have a more robust political system than 1930s Germany. But Trump’s racist rhetoric should be viewed in the repugnant tradition of Hitler. When you call all Mexicans rapists, criminals, losers, and the source of disease (that last claim was an old Nazi favorite), when you disparage Mexican-Americans at every turn as the cause of all the country’s woes, and when you have the money to get your message out, journalists should take you seriously.”
“Such speech is a classic ploy to sow divisiveness and generate fear. That his message finds a home at all should be alarming,” the pair wrote. “It’s one thing to argue about immigration policies. It’s a completely different thing to condemn an entire ethnic group. (Imagine if Trump were saying these things about Jews?).”
Caplan and McBride condemned the Huffington Post for demoting Trump to the entertainment section — a move they say, while funny, can have dangerous consequences:
“Trump’s racist views and his misinformation legitimize those same ideas among a swath of American citizens who fear the changing demographics of the country. Rather than rolling our eyes, let’s take Donald Trump seriously. Treating him as a clown rather than a candidate gives him permission spew hate.”
Trump is certainly not a Nazi. While a racist, no one can say he is a white supremacist. His idea of the Master Race requires dollar signs rather than skin tone. But he has taken the very effective propaganda of ‘Mr. Reich’ and made it his own, applying it to win over the gullible and stupid with fear tactics, lies, and misinformation. Trump will never admit to reading the book, but the spirit of Adolf Hitler is alive in all of Trump’s words and actions — there’s just a more elite Übermenschen and a new boogeyman to round up and exterminate.
And his message is received loud and clear, though those hearing it don’t realize that Trump considers them Untermenschen, as well, unless they are monied:
