Donald Trump: The treason candidate backed by hate groups

(George Curry Media) – When will the leadership of the Republican Party do their duty to the nation and disavow the candidacy of the wannabe dictator known as Donald Trump?

That question has in fact been looming over them for months, ever since he used all the tricks of demagoguery to destroy the supposed “deep bench” of Republican current and former officeholders in the primaries.

Now, it’s staring them – and us all – directly in the face because over the past several weeks Trump has proved he’s not just unfit for the presidency (and any public office) in conventional terms. That was clear long before he began his campaign last June.

No, Trump is now showing the world that he really is something new in American politics. He’s a political monster the likes of which we’ve never seen before as a major party’s candidate for the presidency. He’s shown all those Republicans who’ve taken refuge in cynical calculation and tortured logic to endorse him that there is no bottom to his pathological narcissism, no limit to his amorality, no loyalty to the interests of the Republican Party itself, and not a shred of commitment to following time-honored traditions of American politics, the rule of law or the principles of the Constitution.

Trump’s only commitment is to himself: to avoiding facing Hillary Clinton in one-on-one debates during the general election campaign in order to conceal his compete ignorance of policy issues; to obscuring the damning evidence media outlets have been uncovering about his terrible record as a businessman, especially that involving his “Trump University” scheme of a decade ago; and to seizing the reins of power so he can establish his vision of the United States of America – a police state.

So, instead of discussing his policy differences with Clinton, he implies he’ll be making charges of scandalous behavior against them.

So, as law enforcement begins to investigate the mass murder in Orlando and the nation grieves, Trump publicly congratulates himself for having predicted another terrorist attack would occur in the U.S., and then proposes closing America to all Muslims outside of its borders – and, in effect, stripping Muslim-Americans and Muslim nationals inside the U.S. of their rights.

So, still haunted by President Obama’s humiliating destruction of his “birther” gambit of five years ago, Trump re-arranges the elements of birtherism to declare Obama sympathizes with the terrorists who would do America and the world harm.

But, in fact, it is Trump who is the traitor in our midst. When you accuse the first Black president of the United States of “sympathizing” with America’s enemies, you’ve made common cause with the Ku Klux Klan, and the neo-Nazi, White racist militia and White Christian identity groups that have been peddling that line since Obama took office.

It’s no wonder those treasonous groups have flocked to Trump’s campaign, and have no doubt helped stoke a fierce racist, anti-Semitic and sexist harassment online of journalists who’ve written critically of Trump. In much the same way violent White racists “enforced” White supremacy at the ground level of the South during the Jim Crow decades, these people will be the vigilante enforcers of a Trump administration’s war against the media and war against Muslim Americans and other “undesirables.”
