One question might not change the minds of many Trump supporters, but it’s definitely shut a lot of them up, made them flustered and/or sent them into ridiculous tangents trying to avoid saying the only answer that makes sense.
So, what is this question?
It’s very simple. Imagine a room full of dictators who use chemical weapons on women and children (Bashar al-Assad) and tyrants who’ve had political rivals and journalists murdered (Vladimir Putin), then toss in the KKK, David Duke (white nationalist and former Grand Wizard of the KKK), and neo-Nazis. Now ask yourself this: when has a group of people like that ever been on the right side of history?
The answer to that question is quite simple: Never.
However, those are some of the people and groups who all wanted to see Donald Trump elected president. Hell, Putin launched a cyber attack against this country to do just about everything he could to help make it happen, while David Duke and the KKK enthusiastically praised and celebrated his victory.
So, when Trump supporters proudly boast about his win, and staunchly defend their belief that he’s going to “make America great again,” what they’re also saying is that, for the first time ever, serial-killing tyrants, white supremacists, hate groups, Nazis, and dictators who use chemical weapons to slaughter women and children are going to be on the right side of history when it comes to backing Trump for president.
Another way I’ve framed the question is by asking: If all I told you was that one candidate from an election you had no interest in was backed by those people, and you knew absolutely nothing else about that candidate, would you blindly support them?
That’s really what this all boils down to.
For a moment forget everything else (though it all still matters), and just focus on that reality. A reality that tells us a candidate for president was supported by some of the most disgusting, vile and horrible human beings on the planet. People who murder rivals, slaughter women and children, are proud and open racists, honor the horrific beliefs of Adolf Hitler — those are the people who all wanted to see Trump win.
Whether his supporters will admit it or not, that means something.
It’s not a coincidence that a Russian tyrant, a Syrian dictator, one of the most infamous hate groups on the planet, a renowned white nationalist and disgusting creatures who view Hitler as a role model were all on the same side of supporting a particular presidential candidate — Donald Trump.
That’s not something that can be dismissed as, “Well, Trump can’t help who backs him. He didn’t seek out their endorsement.”
Well, did he specifically seek out their endorsement? No.
But when you run a campaign and have a candidate that:
- Vilifies Mexicans.
- Paints immigrants as an enemy.
- Constantly bashes and attacks Muslims.
- Retweeted anti African American propaganda created by a white nationalist organization.
- Hires an icon to white nationalists, Steve Bannon, to be one of his top advisers.
- Plays dumb when he’s asked during an interview if he denounces the endorsement of a renowned white supremacist.
- Refuses to call that same white supremacist “deplorable,” claiming they don’t want to attack people — when the candidate spent a good part of his campaign lashing out and attacking people.
- Condemns Saturday Night Live sketches with more anger and hostility than he does Nazis who support him (in fact, I don’t recall Trump going on any Twitter tantrums against white nationalists, ever).
- Made a name for himself before launching his campaign by pushing the racist birther conspiracy against President Obama.
- Frequently praised and defended the very same Russian tyrant that helped get him elected.
- Would rather attack our own president, the CIA, the FBI and the spies who risk their lives for this country because they all say facts prove that the dictator he’s often praised — the same one who helped get him elected — launched a cyber attack against the United States.
Those statements aren’t me twisting reality or pushing liberal propaganda, those are all indisputable facts.
So, yes, while it’s true Trump didn’t specifically seek out their help, support, praise or endorsements — it’s not a coincidence that all these horrific groups and vile people all just happened to want to see Donald Trump become this nation’s president.
Which brings me back to my question. Imagine a room full of dictators who use chemical weapons on women and children (Bashar al-Assad) and tyrants who’ve had political rivals and journalists murdered (Vladimir Putin), then toss in the KKK, David Duke (white nationalist and former Grand Wizard of the KKK), and neo-Nazis. When has a group of people like that ever been on the right side of history?
When Trump supporters claim that voting for him was the right thing to do, what they’re also saying is that those disgusting groups (and others like them) — for the first time ever — are on the right side of history.
