Trump's Rage Against Americans and Aliens of the Wrong Race, Ethnicity or Nationality
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
Trump's rage against unwanted Latino aliens, other people of color, Muslims, along with "s..thole" Central American and African countries reflects his longstanding demeaning/racist views.
During his presidential campaign, he disgracefully called Mexican aliens criminals and rapists. He proposed banning all Muslims from entering the US.
He used racially charged language against US District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, falsely claiming he may be biased against him because of his Mexican heritage.
He opposes rights afforded "Dreamers" under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) legislation - protecting undocumented alien minors entering America under age-16.
He rescinded what was established in June 2012, wanting DACA ended. He called fired black White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman "a crazed lying lowlife…dog."
Defending his racism, White House press secretary Sarah Sangers called him "an equal opportunity (offender), insult(ing) everyone, not just black people."
He's called women fat, a pig, a dog, a slob, and a disgusting animal. He mocked fellow GOP presidential aspirant Carly Fiorina, saying: "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?"
In a 1992 New York Magazine interview, he commented about women, saying: "You have to treat 'em like s..t." After declaring his candidacy in June 2016, he called Obama "stupid."
Ad hominem insults against anyone for any reason are uncalled for. Claiming he's not a male chauvinist/racist is like calling a cat a dog.
Trump is militantly hostile to Muslims, waging war on multiple Muslim-majority countries, banning citizens and residents of designate nations from entering America.
His policy against them has nothing to do with protecting national security, nothing about screening out "radical Islamic terrorists" Washington created and supports.
It's all about hyping fear, justifying endless wars of aggression, keeping unwanted Muslims out of America, along with Venezuelan officials and North Koreans.
His proposed great wall along America's southern border targets unwanted Latinos the same way.
Christians and Jews are welcome, especially from favored nations. Treating them one way, along with unwanted Muslims and people of color another way, is flagrantly racist.
Refugees, asylum seekers, and others from the wrong countries are unwelcome in Trump's America. Islamophobia is official regime policy. So is hate-mongering to justify unjustifiable policies.
Thousands of impoverished and persecuted Central Americans have been heading toward the southern US border since miid-October, seeking safe haven away from their repressive countries, run by despotic regimes Washington supports.
Last month, Trump threatened send to send US military forces to the southern border, aiming to block thousands seeking entry into America.
US media and political extremists called the approaching caravan an "invading horde…a full-scale invasion by a hostile force," and other pejorative statements.
Trump called people involved "criminals and unknown middle easterners" - not many of the latter in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
Mike Pence falsely accused Venezuela of funding them. The Homeland Security Department claimed caravan members are "gang members or have significant criminal histories" - citing no evidence because none exists.
Days before next week's midterm elections, Trump ordered 5,200 US troops to "harden" America's border with Mexico - 2,100 National Guard forces already there.
On Wednesday, DLT said "(w)e'll do up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel, on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border. Nobody's coming in."
He threatened Central American countries where they came from with reprisal action for permitting them to head north.
He tweeted the following: "Our military is being mobilized at the Southern Border. Many more troops coming."
"We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the US. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!
He slammed Mexico, accusing its leadership of being "unable or unwilling to stop" the caravan. "They are not coming into our country," he roared.
The caravan is hundreds of miles away. It'll be weeks before it arrives. A second, smaller caravan crossed into Mexico from Guatemala Tuesday, heading for the US border.
Troops will be positioned there in the coming weeks. If thousands of Central Americans try crossing the southern US border, will mass bloodshed follow?
