Donald Trump is a racist and bigot. So are many of those who follow him.
People are often judged by their associates. If you cast a vote for Donald Trump, you are supporting a racist.
If you are a Trump supporter, you might as well go shopping for white sheets to wear at your next rally of the Ku Klux Klan.
Need proof of Trump’s racism? Let’s go to the record.
- The United States Department of Justice sued Trump Management Company twice for racial discrimination because it prevented renting apartments to blacks in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island;
- The New Jersey Casino Control Commission fined the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino $200,000 because managers routinely removed African-American card dealers at any tables frequented by high-dollar white supremacists;
- “When Donald and Ivana (Trump’s first wife) came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” said Kip Brown, a former employee of Trump Castle;
- Trump routinely called black casino employees “lazy” and used even more bigoted terms, wrote former Trump Plaza president John O’Donnell in a book in 1991;
- “It isn’t funny,” O’Donnell said Trump would say. “I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and Trump Plaza. Black people counting my money. I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys who wear yarmulkes every day.”
The list goes on and on. Trump refused three times in February of this year to condemn support of him by white supremacists, claiming he didn’t “know anything about them.” One of his primary delegates was William Johnson, chairman of the white nationalist American Freedom Party.
Trump is an avowed proponent of the discredited, and racist, claim that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. He claims he sent investigators to Hawaii to try and find Obama’s birth certificate. He said his researchers “cannot believe what they are finding.”
Yet he provided no claimed report of these “researchers.” Obama’s long-form birth certificate is public record. Sources say Trump’s claim is, like so many of his statements, just another of his many lies. No one was sent to Hawaii.
“I think Donald Trump would be best for the job,” the “imperial wizard for the Rebel Brigade of the Knights of the Klu Klux Klan” told anchor Chris Thomas of Richmond, Va. NBC television affiliate WWBT . “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes is what we believe in.”
Valued Trump supporters include Richard Spenders, director of the white supremacist National Policy Institute; Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, a white nationalist magazine published out of Virginia; Michael Hill, head of the Alabama-based white supremacist secessionist League of the South and racist blogger Brad Griffin.
Trump is embraced and endorsed by The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi news web site.
In elections, candidates are normally judged by their supporters.
As should those who choose to support and vote for a known and proven racist like Donald J. Trump.
