The other day Trump decided to focus on minorities. He called Hillary a bigot.
With that comment, he said that minorities and their parents and their grand parents have had it wrong. Despite roughly 90% or more of blacks voting democratic in every election for the past fifty years, they are wrong and The Donald is right.
According to Trump, this loyal devotion has been misguided. According to Trump, these minorities have been bamboozled by the Democrats. If we take Trump at his words, that he really believes what he says, than of course he doesn’t think minorities are smart. If 97% of a minority demographic vote for a candidate that is against them, they can’t be too sharp.
He also tells them that he is with them. Forget all the ugly racist comments that Trump has made, and just vote for him! He is hoping that they will forget his constant degradation of them during the past year. As if the past year has been a lucid dream or a surreal acid trip, currently, every Trumpkin this side of the Mason Dixon line is trying to convince the media that Trump isn’t racist.
There is a reason why every hate group in America considers The Donald their new savior, and it isn’t because of his hot wife or killer hair. Trump’s only platforms that he has shared to the public concern removing minorities from our country and also preventing them from entering. Hitler had the same exact opinions.
Such a radical plan instantly gained the support of the Imperial Wizard of the KKK.
“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.”
I don’t have enough time to cite all the racist things that Trump has done and said. Like how he was sued TWICE by the Justice Department for not renting to black people, and his refusal to disavow the KKK, he has condoned the vicious beating of a Black Lives Matter protester, he shared an anti-Semitic meme designed by white supremacists.
But for Trump to insinuate that Hillary is a bigot, and is not helping minorities is absolutely ludicrous. Trump is insulting anyone’s intelligence to actually attempt to persuade them of such a notion.
According to U.S. Census data, when Republicans are in the White House, minorities typically lose ground. On the other hand, Democratic presidents rule over substantial improvements for minorities.
Under Democratic presidents, the income of black households grows on average of $895 a year. Under Republican presidents, the amount is $142.
Black unemployment fell by 7.9 percentage points during the 26 years that a Democrat was in the White House. However, during the 28 years that a Republican was in office, the rate rose 13.7 points.
Black poverty declined 23.6 points under Democratic presidents but jumped 3 points while a Republican was president.
Oh yeah. According to U.S. Census data, white Americans also make gains under Democrats. White incomes grow and white unemployment and poverty decline, under Democratic leadership.
Could you call these obvious and blatant trends just coincidences? Who is to say that Democratic presidents just inherit good economies, while Republicans get crumby ones? I’ve had Republicans justify these trends by saying that Republican enact good policies, but it takes a couple of years to get fully implemented. When that time finally comes, there is a Democrat in office.
Actually, policy experts contend that legislation aimed to boost incomes of poor Americans generally contribute to a healthy economy. In the same vein, trickle down economics, Republican’s single economic ideology for the past 30 years, damages a healthy economy. Although trickle down economics have been a proven failure, Republican candidates still endorse them.
Shining examples would be President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty, that started a decline in unemployment and Bill Clinton’s expansion of the earned income tax credit, which gives low income workers a tax refund check.
The Civil Rights Act was another piece of Democratic legislation that has helped minorities tremendously.
Republican leadership has ignored minorities to such a colossal level, that Republicans have even tried to suppress minorities from voting. Don’t even try to gain their favor, instead block their vote!
Such a disgusting violation of our democracy comes straight from a Republican’s fat mouth. Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai said that voter identification laws would “allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.”
Former Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer told The Palm Beach Post, “We’ve got to cut down on early voting because early voting is not good for us.”
Implemented Republican voter laws include longer ballots and fewer precincts. Sadly, these Republican tricks work. According to one study, 49,000 opted not to vote because of those long lines and other obstacles.
Since 2010, 22 states have passed strict new voting restrictions. Republicans claim that voter identification is needed to prevent voter fraud. Voter fraud is so rare, it is almost non existent. However, many people are turned away from voting because they don’t have an ID. Typically, people with no IDs are low income, and hence, Democratic.
Hence, I have proven that Democrats strive to help minorities. But according to Trump, what has it done for them? Recently, during Trump’s attempt to gain minority votes, he painted a disgustingly bleak and depressing vision of blacks, that they can’t walk down a street without getting shot at and that they are all unemployed. “What do you have to lose”, by voting for Trump, he asked.
It isn’t that easy, Donald.
The reason why minorities are not being helped more by the Democrats is because Republicans fight any legislation that could help them.
Republican policy has ignored everyone but their wealthy supporters. Obama summed it up nicely a few years ago when he said, during his weekly address that, “So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” In the Senate, Republicans have filibustered hundreds of bills.
Since the 2009 stimulus, Republicans have blocked EVERY single effort to
raise the minimum wage
give women equal pay
stop giving tax breaks for shipping jobs out of our country
provide student loan assistance
provide long term unemployment assistance
Every one of those important issues come from legislation that was designed by Democrats and turned down by Republicans.
And so, my orange presidential nominee, I contest your belief that minorities are stupid for voting Democratic.
