Black conservatives have notoriously cast iron stomachs being able to swallow the racist shit of their fellow white conservatives on a daily basis.
Finally – Condi Rice speaks out.
Too bad it’s too late to take him off the ballot.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice broke her silence on the presidential election on Saturday and called on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trumpto end his campaign.
“Enough! Donald Trump should not be President,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “He should withdraw. As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”
Rice, who served as secretary of state and national security adviser to former President George W. Bush, is the latest in a growing list of prominent Republicans who have condemned, unendorsed or called on Trump to withdraw from the race within the past 24 hours.
The wave of revolt against the GOP nominee was prompted by a 2005 video The Washington Post released Friday, which shows Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without consent because “when you’re a star, they let you do it.”
Rice, who is now a professor at Stanford University, has been noticeably quiet this campaign cycle, declining multiple interview requests on national security issues related to the election. Her chief of staff, Georgia Godfrey, did not immediately respond to an email asking if she would vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton― or why she waited to distance herself from Trump until it was too late for the candidate to be removed from the ballot.
As Trump gained momentum in the GOP primary race earlier this year, party strategists reportedly tried, unsuccessfully, to recruit Rice to make an independent bid for president.
Rice said she wasn’t interested in serving as Trump’s running mate, but phrased her statement in a way to suggest that her lack of interest was related to the job itself, not the man at the top of the ticket.
“Dr. Rice has repeatedly said in past cycles as well as this one, she’s not interested in being vice president,” Godfrey said in June.
Trumps true colors = racism.
One of the country’s most prominent white nationalists has just been selected as a Trump delegate from California
One of the country’s most prominent white nationalists has just been selected as a Donald Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention from California.
William Daniel Johnson, a Los Angeles lawyer and leader of a political party that “exists to represent the political interests of White Americans,” is so excited about Donald Trump’s candidacy and its potential to mainstream white nationalism that he’s spent thousands to aid the wealthy businessman’s campaign and has be rewarded with a vote at the Republican’s nominating convention in Cleveland this July.
“Johnson got the news that he had been selected by Trump in a congratulatory email sent to him by the campaign’s California Delegate Coordinator, Katie Lagomarsino,” reported Mother Jones on Tuesday. Johnson, head of the American Freedom Party, told Mother Jones that although he never used the term “white nationalist” in his application to be a Trump delegate, “he disclosed multiple details about his background and activism.”Of course, as one of the most notorious white nationalist in America, Johnson has garnered national headlines for his vocal and fervent support for Trump, a candidate who could barely muster a disavowal of former Klu Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.
In February, Trump vowed to return a $250 donation Johnson made to the campaign. Last month, the white nationalist spent $6,000 on robocalls on behalf of Trump ahead of the Wisconsin primary.
“I want people to hear, to feel comfortable with, the term ‘white nationalist,’” Johnson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel at the time.
“The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called ‘racist,’” Johnson said in one robocall to voters in Vermont and Minnesota.
The head honcho at the KKK, the chief beagle hiss-self has endorsed Trump because they share common views…
In an act of audacious reporting Chris Thomas drove out to the Virginia woods (albeit with an unmarked police car following him) where he met with the Grand Imperial Wizard (GIW) of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). Or, as the Grand Imperial Wizard continually pronounced it, the “Klu Klux Klan.”
During the interview, the GIW said that the Klan was no longer a “racial” group, but now is “political.”
Thomas asked the GIW if he had an opinion as to who should be president. “I think Donald Trump would be best for the job.” he tells Thomas. “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes in, we believe in. We want our country to be safe.”
As a consequence of the Klan’s political mission, the group has been blanketing leaflets through central Virginia. The GIW says that President Obama has been good for his organization. “He has been a very good recruiting tool for this organization. And it’s not because he is black. We are more political than racial.”
The GIW is also clear that his organization will never support Ted Cruz, preferring a Kasich presidency. The reason?
“[Ted Cruz] is not an American citizen. Even if I agree with some of the things that Ted Cruz says, I would not support him because he was born in Canada. He is not an American citizen.”
The interviews cover several topics, including what differentiates the Klan from Neo-Nazi “punk thug” Dylan Roof. “He was a Nazi Skin-Head. Neo-Nazis and Skin Heads are socialist. We are not socialist.”
Below is a new sick-trick Donald Trump campaign ad trying to tie Hillary Clinton to the KKK because of her eulogy for Robert Byrd…
The leader of a self-proclaimed “white nationalist” group has sponsored robocalls in support of Donald J. Trump ahead of Wisconsin’s Tuesday Republican primary.
William Johnson told the Journal Sentinel that his group spent $6,000 to call “every Wisconsin landline” with the recorded message.
An older woman narrating the recording says that Trump “will be a fine president,” and promises that he “will respect all women and help preserve western civilization.”
The recording concludes by describing Johnson as “a farmer and a white nationalist.” The American Freedom Party and the American National super PAC are also mentioned.
Johnson explained to the Journal Sentinel that he felt it was important to include the words “white nationalist” in the call, and speculated that the narrator’s “sweet, grandmotherly voice” would make the message less controversial.
“I want people to hear, to feel comfortable with, the term ‘white nationalist,’” Johnson said.
At an event for Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday, Gov. Scott Walker called the robocall “outrageous.”
“I hope the people of this state are smart enough to see through that and denounce anything related to it,” Walker remarked.
As is a custom in Mexico, the effigies of the evil are burned at Easter…This year, Donald Trump and “El Chapo” the drug kingpin were quite popular.
Uncle Ben will impress the guests wearing that tux and bow tie in the White House… And pouring the wine after setting the tables.
Dr. Ben Carson, who endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy on Friday, appears less than enthusiastic about that decision. And the real reason the unsuccessful GOP presidential hopeful endorsed his former rival could be a violation of federal law.
Carson told the conservative online site NewsMax TV on Monday that he backed Trump based on a practical calculus.
“I didn’t see a path for [John] Kasich, who I like, or for [Marco] Rubio, who I like. As far as [Ted] Cruz is concerned, I don’t think he’s gonna be able to draw independents and Democrats unless has has some kind of miraculous change… Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes. But that scenario isn’t available.” Pressed to clarify, Carson said he meant he’d prefer to have backed one of the other candidates.
Carson then said that Trump had promised him a role in his administration, “certainly in an advisory capacity.” Asked by NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg whether this meant a cabinet position, Carson declined to “reveal any details about it right now, because all of this is still very liquid.”
Federal law expressly prohibits candidates from directly or indirectly promising “the appointment of any person to any public or private position or employment, for the purpose of procuring support in his candidacy.” The penalty for violations could include fines or a year in jail — two years if the violation was willful.
