The Capital of Shithole Country Is in Florida

The president knows exactly how to feed his base. That's why you don't hear Republicans complaining or even criticizing. Meanwhile, the old white man billionaire administration and its agenda keeps rolling along.

Trump knows exactly what he's doing. After being told by the Mercers that he had to fire Bannon, he had to prove to his base that he is indeed the real king of Shithole Country.

He did that by giving his base a little of the "he's saying what we're all thinking" magic, a phrase I often heard from white people during the campaign (admit it, white people, you heard it too).

The President of the United States said, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

But you know what? He's right! Not about the people emigrating, about the shithole country within our own borders.

We are already infested with millions of people in states that chronically drag down our economy. States that dramatically lag — and have for 100 years — in national averages for per capita GDP, healthcare, and education, and exceed national averages on opiate prescriptions, poverty and social security disability recipients (Alabama is #1, Mississippi is #5). States that take more federal money than they give. Laggard states are where the core of Trump's 35 percent support base lives. People who welcome and reward overt appeals to racism. People who enable the white billionaire's agenda.

So go burn a cross. Worship in a hate-filled tax exempt "church." Tell your little joke about mud people. Fly the flag of your defeated nation over your statehouse. Erect statues of defeated generals and war criminals like Bedford Forrest. Cheer your president. But I don't want to pay for it with my taxes anymore.

We have to stop talking about "unconscious bias" and start acknowledging chronic and overt bias, bigotry and sexism. The things that got the president elected. We need to stop "sensitivity training" and start firing people! Fire them now. Reason? You violate our values! You're offensive! And you drag down productivity.

We all owe Trump a debt of gratitude. There's no point in pretending there are good people on both sides. Trump has proven the futility of trying to accommodate the citizens of the shithole country within our own borders. We have to live with them, I suppose, but no more welfare and white affirmative action!

Don't work for companies that tolerate shithole people. Divest yourself and your company of them. As you escort them out, don't resist the urge to say, "Pssst, Mexico isn't paying for a wall. AMF."

Finally, we white people need to take ownership of the mess we created. An environment where calling Mexicans rapists wasn't a career ending event. An environment where the white Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and the white Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are silent on the fitness of this old white man president. We own this, I don't care who you voted for.

Oh, and by the way, my ancestors came from countries that were considered shitholes when they emigrated.

 

 

Trump May Win If You Don't Vote

Only one candidate directly addressed the coalition of Black, Latino and white citizens who elected Barack Obama twice — Donald Trump.

Only one candidate directly addressed the coalition of Black, Latino and white citizens who elected Barack Obama twice — Donald Trump.

We are facing the choice between two flawed candidates, but one of them is a monster.

Donald Trump exploited customers, contractors, business partners, wives and the man who was sent to Vietnam in his place when he cheated the draft board. It appears to me that he cheated the IRS — I cannot believe that anybody who could declare a $1 billion net operating loss doesn't get an immediate investigation. He got away with it. He's a conman — his core support is from undereducated white people who are angry because they correctly perceive their quality of life is declining. The sad fact is that a middle-class living is no longer possible from barely skilled labor.

His thinly veiled racist, white supremacist and exploitive message is that "it's not your fault" — it's the fault of the Muslim-noncitizen-Black president and his friends, the undocumented Latino workers and Muslims. He talks about Black neighborhoods being a disaster, ignoring self-earned improvements and a decades long decline in crime — despite being exploited by the perpetual "war on drugs." It's not about Black neighborhoods; it's about painting Black people as being savages, Latinos as being subhuman rapists and Muslim American citizens as being a terroristic threat to the United States.

It's also about women being in the workplace or politics as equals. His message is very clear — if you're powerful enough, you can grab them by the pussy!

In Trump's world, making America great again is about reversing the clock. But the decline in economic reality for lower middle-class white people is due to better competition, just like the lower quality white baseball players were forced out of the major leagues as better skilled Black and Latino players began to play after Jackie Robinson (and Branch Rickey) broke the color barrier.

There's no reversing the clock — we all know that. Just like there's no stuffing the Jim Crow genie back into the bottle now that there's a video on cell phones and we can document law-enforcement injustice, beatings and killings.

There is one place where the clock is reversing, however: indications are that Black and Latino voter turnout is not going to be as strong as it was four or eight years ago. I can understand why.

His opponent, Hillary Clinton, is weak. She almost lost the primary to a septuagenarian socialist senator from a state with only 600,000 residents — not what you would call a strong power base.

If you look at her policy page, you will not see much to excite you. She ignored the lessons learned in the last two presidential elections and did not directly address the coalition of Black, Latino and progressive white voters who elected Barack Obama twice.

At our fall event, I had author Steve Phillips talk about his book "Brown is the New White." I strongly recommend you read it — no matter how this election goes, the future of our country is well described in his phenomenally researched and documented book.

But the future is in the hands of that diverse coalition, which describes the future demographics of our country.

We will have another chance to do a better job in four years, but for right now — I beg you to go out and vote for Hillary Clinton. Take a friend with you. I've never endorsed a candidate before, but this is an emergency.

Minorities Have too Much Influence, Trump Supporters Say: Poll

In fact, 67 percent of Clinton supporters feel minorities have too little influence, something only 17 percent of Trump supporters think.
