Trump Bankrolled Racist Ads to Stop Mohawk Casino

Trump has no compunction in playing the race card – in business or politics…

REVEALED: Trump bankrolled a racist ad campaign against Native Americans to protect his casino biz

Donald Trump has shown no reluctance to do bigoted things during his presidential campaign, whether it’s supporting a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. or attacking a “Mexican” judge as being unfit to rule on the Trump University case.

Because of this, it’s not surprising to learn that Trump once bankrolled a racist ad campaign against Native Americans who had just proposed building a casino in upstate New York.

The Los Angeles Times reports that when the St. Regis Mohawk tribe announced plans to build a casino near a racetrack in the Catskills, Trump decided to bankroll an ad campaign aimed at convincing local communities to kill the project.

Trump plunged $1 million into a purported “grassroots” anti-gambling organization called the New York Institute for Law and Society that warned the casino would bring “increased crime, broken families, bankruptcies and, in the case of the Mohawks, violence.”

But that’s not all: Documents obtained by The Los Angeles Times show that Trump personally signed off on a strategy devised by longtime ally Roger Stone to depict the Mohawks as a violent people who would bring ruin to everyone else in the area.

“Roger, do it!” Trump scrawled on a proposed flier that said the Mohawk tribe was well known for being a violent group that sold drugs and smuggled undocumented immigrants into the country.

Trump and his associates were ordered by the New York Temporary State Commission on Lobbying to pay $250,000 for deceptive advertising by not disclosing the fact that Trump almost single handedly funded the New York Institute for Law and Society, despite the fact that the organization falsely boasted it had raised funds from more than 12,000 donors.

ANOTHER Trump Delegate Indicted for Guns and Child Porn!

The Drumph may well lose the Primary because all his Delegates are in prison!

A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.  -Theodore Roosevelt

Maryland Trump delegate indicted after ATF agents find explosives, machine gun and child porn

A delegate for Donald Trump from Charles County, Maryland was indicted this week on charges related to illegal transport of explosives, possession of a machine gun and child pornography.

In a press release on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said that ATF agents began investigating 30-year-old Caleb Andrew Bailey after postal inspectors discovered a package with .50 caliber cartridges with M48A1 incendiary projectiles and other ammunition with explosive projectiles.

On May 5, law enforcement executed a search warrant “at adjoining properties associated with Bailey, including his residence, and seized a machine gun,” according to the statement.

Court documents allege that Bailey also used a minor to produce child pornography, and that child pornography was found in his possession.

Bailey faces over 50 years in prison if found guilty of all charges.

The Maryland Board of Election currently lists Bailey as a delegate for Donald Trump.

Republican Peter King Uses Racial Slur on Air

Another Republican…Another racist asshole.

Really? Congressman Peter King Uses Anti-Asian Slur On TV

King used a derogatory term for Japanese-Americans on “Morning Joe” and refused to apologize.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), appearing on live television Friday, dredged up a racial slur from the annals of wartime history.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” King used the term “Japs” in a criticism of likely Republican nominee Donald Trump’s approach to national security. King compared the candidate to a hypothetical trigger-happy “guy at the end of the bar” who is oblivious to the consequences of actions like dropping a nuclear bomb.

“There’s real issues with him, real problems with his views,” King said of Trump. “I don’t know if he’s thought them through, or if it’s just like the guy at the end of the bar that says, ‘Oh screw them, bomb them, kill them, pull out, bring them home. You know, why pay for the Japs, why pay for the Koreans?’”

The derogatory term was used for Japanese people and Japanese-Americans during and after World War II, particularly after the surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Speaking with The Hill on Friday, King refused to apologize.

“I stand by the merits of what I said. I was quoting the guy at the end of the bar who needlessly offends, who makes snaps decisions and doesn’t care, who suddenly says, ‘The hell with them, the Japs and Koreans,’” King told the outlet.

SCUMUS 5 Set to Re-segregate Schools

Supreme Court Justice and member of the conservative Scumbag 5 Thugs in Robes on the Supreme Court certainly had no problem letting his racist flag fly.

Justice Scalia Thinks Black Students Belong In ‘Slower-Track’ Schools

Do black students matter to Justice Antonin Scalia?

During oral arguments on Wednesday in Fisher v. University of Texas, acontentious affirmative action case, the conservative justice seemed to call their abilities into question.

“There are those who contend that it does not benefit African-Americans to get them into the University of Texas, where they do not do well,” Scalia said, “as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school … a slower-track school where they do well.”

Scalia was engaging former U.S. Solicitor General Gregory Garre, who is now representing the University of Texas at Austin as the school defends its ongoing consideration of race as one of many factors in its admissions program.

Pointing to a brief the court received before oral arguments, Scalia noted “most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas.”

Garre tried to interject, but the justice continued. “They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that … they’re being pushed ahead­­ in classes that are too fast for them,” Scalia said.

Again, Garre tried to respond as Scalia added that he was “just not impressed” by arguments that UT Austin suffers from lower minority enrollment. “I don’t think it stands to reason that it’s a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible,” the justice said.

By then, Garre’s time at the podium was almost up, but he closed his rebuttal to the justice by emphasizing the importance of diversity on campus.

“Frankly, I don’t think the solution to the problems with student body diversity can be to set up a system in which not only are minorities going to separate schools, they’re going to inferior schools,” Garre said. “I think what experience shows — at Texas, California and Michigan — is that now is not the time and this is not the case to roll back student body diversity in America.”

Scalia’s argument is duplicitous for a number of reasons. First UT Austin is hardly an “elite” school. It’s a state university, with a charter of educating the students in Texas, and is part of a state-wide system similar to that of any of the more advanced state such as California, Virginia. It is no MIT or Harvard. Which doesn’t mean it is a bad school, and is generally ranked in the top 10 or so State Universities. Second, UT Austin’s graduation rate is 20% lower than that of comparable state schools for all students (UVa is over 70%). Lastly, graduation rate more closely follows income than race. What Texas found was that there was no difference between high income students and low in terms of abilities – and that they could impact the difference in performance though lower class sizes and coaching for the first two years to bring grades and graduation rate in line. At least 9 Universities have graduation rates of 90%, in today’s world, having a graduation rate of only 50% is the school’s failure – not a failure of the students. UT Austin knows that and has put programs in place to try and fix it.

NY Times Obliterates Trump for “Racist Lies”

Wow! What a takedown!

Mr. Trump’s Applause Lies

America has just lived through another presidential campaign week dominated by Donald Trump’s racist lies. Here’s a partial list of false statements: The United States is about to take in 250,000 Syrian refugees; African-Americans are responsible for most white homicides; and during the 9/11 attacks, “thousands and thousands” of people in an unnamed “Arab” community in New Jersey “were cheering as that building was coming down.”

In the Republican field, Mr. Trump has distinguished himself as fastest to dive to the bottom. If it’s a lie too vile to utter aloud, count on Mr. Trump to say it, often. It wins him airtime, and retweets through the roof.

This phenomenon is in fact nothing new. Politicians targeting minorities, foreigners or women have always existed in the culture. And every generation or so, at least one demagogue surfaces to fan those flames.

Here’s Donald Trump on Sunday: When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if it’s a Trojan horse. And I definitely want a database and other checks and balances. We want to go with watch lists. We want to go with databases. And we have no choice. We have no idea who’s being sent in here. This could be the — it’s probably not, but it could be the great Trojan horse of all time, where they come in.”

Here’s Joseph McCarthy in 1950: “Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity. The modern champions of communism have selected this as the time, and ladies and gentlemen, the chips are down — they are truly down.”

Here’s Donald Trump last Tuesday: “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before. And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy. And so we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

Dixiecrat George Wallace

Here’s George Wallace in 1963: “We must redefine our heritage, re-school our thoughts in the lessons our forefathers knew so well, in order to function and to grow and to prosper. We can no longer hide our head in the sand and tell ourselves that the ideology of our free fathers is not being attacked and is not being threatened by another idea … for it is.”

Mr. Trump relies on social media to spread his views. This is convenient because there’s no need to respond to questions about his fabrications. That makes it imperative that other forms of media challenge him.

Instead, as Mr. Trump stays at the top of the Republican field, it’s become a full-time job just running down falsehoods like the phony crime statistics he tweeted, which came from a white supremacist group.

Yet Mr. Trump is regularly rewarded with free TV time, where he talks right over anyone challenging him, and doubles down when called out on his lies.

This isn’t about shutting off Mr. Trump’s bullhorn. His right to spew nonsense is protected by the Constitution, but the public doesn’t need to swallow it. History teaches that failing to hold a demagogue to account is a dangerous act. It’s no easy task for journalists to interrupt Mr. Trump with the facts, but it’s an important one.

Racism Will Make You Stupid – Trump Financier and Black Churches

One of the most welcoming places on earth to anybody but perhaps a black man at some of the personality driven joint…is the Black Church. This Trump-Clown denies that with evidence staring him in the face from the very recent mass murders at a black Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Nobody kicked Dylann Roof out of that church, denied him fellowship, or refused to pray, which sadly was the reason he was able to commit is horrific and despicable crime. Indeed, one of the very few places where at least social conservatives find common ground with black folks is in Church, whether in opposing LGBT marriage, or abortion…

Apparently being a bigot isn’t an impediment to getting rich in America – at least if you are white. However, racism IS stupidity – so intelligence isn’t the sole key to getting rich either..This offensive, racist POS should learn something…Like Civil Rights Leaders in the 60’s weren’t outsider troublemakers.

Trump supporter tells CNN: ‘I’d get beat up’ at a black church so black activists deserve it at Trump events

 

Robert Kiger, the founder of a super PAC supporting Donald Trump for president, said on Monday that he wasn’t surprised that a black man was beaten at a Trump rally because he would expect black people to do the same thing to him if he visited an African-American church.

At a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, Trump supporters were caught on video beating a black man because he interrupted the event by shouting “black lives matter.”

Kiger told CNN’s Carol Costello on Monday that Alabama was the wrong place to protest systemic racism.

“From my perspective, I’m sick and tire of the Black Lives Matter thing,” Kiger complained. “I think it’s a farce. I think they’re there to just disrupt. Look, if they really care about black lives, they need to pick up a banner and go to the South Side of Chicago, where black lives are being slaughtered on a daily basis. If they really care about the African-American community, get up there and do something about it.”

“So they don’t have the right to protest at a Trump rally?” Costello wondered.

“No, they don’t, really,” Kiger relied. “Look, I wouldn’t go into a black church and start screaming white lives matter.”

“Would you be afraid that they would beat you up?” Costello pressed.

“Yeah! I know I’d get beat up,” Kiger insisted, adding that he would be “at least roughed up” by black church members.

Costello attempted to make a point about the way that members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church responded with kindness after they were targeted in a mass shooting.

But the CNN host quickly decided her words were lost on Kiger: “Never mind, I won’t go there.”

“These guys don’t really have a cause,” Kiger said of Black Lives Matter. “I don’t think they really care. If they did, they would go to Baltimore or they’d go to Chicago.”
