Will Racism Backfire on Trump...Or not?

Thom plus logo Trump's son Eric said on Fox News that he's loving the Democrats being upset about Trump's racist language. He argued that it's playing right into their hands. Is it true that Democrats reacting to Trump's new radicalized version of the old Nixon-era "Love it or leave it" language is going to lead to a massive shift among white and hispanic voters toward the GOP? Or will racism finally backfire on the Republican Party, fifty years after Nixon rolled out his "Southern Strategy"?

-Thom

On Thom's Blog, the Trump troll circlejerk of Coalage3/Dianereynolds/HotCoffee has a long history of racism and bigotry.

The United States has a long history of racism and bigotry.

Ever since the Southern Strategy, modern-day Republicans have a long history of racism and bigotry.

Trump has a long history of racism and bigotry.

Racism and bigotry are learned behaviors; what you think makes you a racist and a bigot.

If you support a racist and a bigot, that makes you a racist and a bigot.

A large minority of white U.S. citizens are racists and bigots.

They should go back to where they came from: The sewer.

By next November, the rest of America -- if you're listening -- should be disgusted enough to thoroughly destroy the morally bankrupt Republican Party and their disgusting base of racists and bigots for generations to come in a landslide victory of moral outrage.

Trump is certainly helping Democrats achieve that goal.

Make America Great Again indeed!

Did it backfire on AOC when she called Pelosi a racist? I don't think it hurt her one little bit. But she's a democrat so the liberal media gives her a pass. How about you Thom? You going to give her racist comments a pass too? How about you DS? A pass for AOC?

Trump is calling out the Gang for their perverted views of how the american government should function. While the public face of the party of death shows support for the Gang, I would bet that privately many dems wish they would just be quiet. There is no question that the Trump strategy of making the party of death showing support for communism and illegality is so far successful. The dems take his bait every single time, and then he reels them in. You can call it racist if you want, but its also true.

The Gang has every right to say what they want and to serve in Congress. But Trump has every right to call them out for their communist/socialist beliefs, their support of illegal immigration and open borders, their support for wealth confiscation, their failure to condemn the violence of Antifa, their anti-semitism, etc. Now I agree that he is getting too personal with them, but he is playing them like a Stradivarius. And they let him.

The Gang, and the rest of the so-called progressives/dems/party of death, think they are beyond reproach. They remind me of the spoiled kid in grade school who throws a temper tantrum when they don't get their way or when nobody pays attention to them. If they really want to make an impact, be quiet and work behind the scenes. Quit making yourself the center of attention. Can anyone name even five other first year representatives to the House?

Didn't think so and that tells you all you need to know about the Gang.

Good Thursday HotCoffee & Coalage3,

If we look back at all the manufacturered drama created by malcontent leftie/socialists, they have drawn a big fail on each and every one of them. Yesterdays NYT (of all places)

‘Trump’s Going to Get Re-elected, Isn’t He?’

Voters have reason to worry.

Another beauty from the "you can't make this stuff up" department.

Some Amazon workers chose yesterday (Prime day) to go in a limited strike. Why you ask? Part of the reason their strike leaders stated was Amazon was cooperating with ICE in ridding Amazon of illegal workers. DUH!

Later.

The comedy continues,

Will women vote for Trump in 2020. A little clip from CNN. Anderson Cooper is really having a bad run following his interview with that nut job that claimed rape was sexy.

Then, followed by this disaster,

G'Day Diane & coalage,

Well... it seems millions of voters are a bit tired of 2 1/2 years of falsley being accused of being rascist....and from the people I speak to many of Dems are fed up with it too.

Now S.F. is renaming the rascist man hole covers in the street...I kid you not! I guess it's cause they don't have any pressing problems like the homeless & feces to deal with.

The election policy on the left is to file frivolous never ending lawsuits spending as much as possible on Attorneys...that way there's no time to deal with the chaos at the border, Such as the 22 MS13 murderers just picked up...or any other congressional business. They sure have plenty of time to bitch and complain though.

coalage is is 100% correct in post #4.

In the meantime the American workers money goes as US aid to Somilia...but Ormar seems to forget about that....not to mention the somali welfare fraud thats goes on in Minnesota....well documented for anyone that wants to look.

Here we sit in a country where people sneak and break into because they want to be here, why? cause were racisist!....I haven't heard of anyone trying to sneak into any African countries lately have you? Middle Eastern Countries? Hmm why not?

Um...and what about racisist Mad Maxine and her calls for violence...never mind, she's too brown to be accountable for her vomitious words....shes the mother of antifa.

People are unique and should be judged by the content of their character not the color of their skin.

maybe later!

The truth is out there but the left never quite seems to find it.

Such as....

Gaetz Questions Federal Prosecutor for Not Charging Man Responsible for Death Threats Against His Office

In several explicit voicemails to the congressman’s office, a caller threatened the congressman’s life. One such message said:

“Gaetz, you pathetic piece of s***. You know that I could blow your f***ing head clean off your shoulders from over a mile away. Watch your back b****, you pathetic little piece of s***. You got your head so far up Trump’s a** but I could still take it off your shoulders. F*** you, Gaetz. I’m coming after you.”

Clearly, this is a violent threat against a member of Congress. It didn’t take federal agents long to track down the man who made the threat, but prosecutors are declining to arrest the man responsible.

During an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Gaetz wondered his criticisms of the intelligence community are the reason his harasser hasn’t been arrested for his actions.

Watch Gaetz’s interview:

Mad maxines wet dream coming true. and lets not forget Scalise. being shot playing baseball.

The left wants to start a new civil war while blaming the right...sick!

Trump is a fun guy if you're into him. Full of surprises and good ideas. He can do no wrong. He said so. Who doesn't want a better country? Quit picking on him and let him work his magic. Fantastic affordable health care is coming real soon. National debt will start going down any time now. Social security, Medicare and Medicaid will all be saved. (Not the same as preserved.) What's not to love?

What is racism? The party of death, with the help of their liberal media friends, have tried to change the meaning.

As i heard one commentator put it: "Racism is a conservative who is winning an argument with a liberal".

Thom - as usual, you are asking the right question but in the wrong context. The right question is...."Will Racism Backfire on the Democrats"?

After all, its their entire platform.
