I’ve decided that it is my moral obligation to try and decipher the verbal diarrhea that spews out of Donald Trump’s foul mouth. While this is no small feat, I feel that I am ready for this colossal challenge. Before I begin let us not forget that this man is hoping to be the next President of the United States. Yes, the following repugnant comments or ideas were made by a Presidential Candidate of the most powerful country in the world.
Idea #1 – all Mexicans are rapist and all they bring into the US are drugs and crime. Solution, build a wall between the US and Mexico border and deport all American Mexicans back to the Mexico.
“immigrants are underrepresented in California prisons compared to their representation in the overall population. In fact, U.S.-born adult men are incarcerated at a rate over two-and-a-half times greater than that of foreign-born men.” (Public Policy Institute of California, 2008.)
This statement is ironic coming from a man that has made his fortune by building luxury hotels, condos, and golf courses. In fact, Hispanics make up more than a quarter of the workers at his newest golf course Ferry Point. So unless he doesn’t know his own employee demographics, I’d say that he’s blowing hot air out of his ass. Would he employ so many Hispanics if he truly believed in this radical idea ? This idea is so dangerous and irresponsible in so many ways. All it takes is a small minority of idiots to see some truth in this. Great idea Don, let’s promote racism and intolerance in a country that has a huge population of immigrants. I can’t see what could possibly go wrong.
Idea 2 – ISIS terror attacks. Solution, all American muslims must be registered so they can be tracked at all times.
How is this any different than what the Nazi’s did to Jews during the Holocaust. He opened pandoras box and is not equipped to handle or remotely justify this idea. This goes beyond any political maneuvering, common sense, and human understanding. The US Holocaust Museum said it best in a press release:
Acutely aware of the consequences to Jews who were unable to flee Nazism, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum looks with concern upon the current refugee crisis. While recognizing that security concerns must be fully addressed, we should not turn our backs on the thousands of legitimate refugees.
The Museum calls on public figures and citizens to avoid condemning today’s refugees as a group. It is important to remember that many are fleeing because they have been targeted by the Assad regime and ISIS for persecution and in some cases elimination on the basis of their identity.
Comment: “There were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey where you have large Arab populations,” Trump said. “They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down. I know it might be not politically correct for you to talk about it, but there were people cheering as that building came down.”
Neither the Associated Press nor the NYPD could find a shroud of evidence to collaborate his comments. It sounds like the rumblings of a lunatic rather than a Presidential Candidate.
Perhaps the scariest thought of all is that there is no apology coming forth from the Don. You see, the Don can’t remember his lies or outlandish facts that are concocted in his head. He no longer has the capacity to tell between reality and his screwed up interpretation of the truth. This is what I call Trump’s Grand Illusion.
