Is Donald Trump a racist? That’s what Democrats would have you believe and that’s what the Republican Establishment would have you believe. Here are just a couple of headlines, and you’re going to see a lot more of these between now and November.
Mitt Romney says Donald Trump will change America with ‘trickle-down racism’
… and …
Here Are 10 Examples Of Donald Trump Being Racist
So those are the headlines and you can imagine the stories. Actually, they’re probably worse than you can imagine.
Keep in mind that these stories are written by people who hate Donald Trump. Mitt Romney has said he will not vote for Donald Trump in the general election and he will do everything in his power to stop him from getting the nomination. The second article comes from the Huffington Post and the Huffington Post puts a warning label on every article about Donald Trump warning the readers that Trump is a racist.
The question, however, is – what is the truth about Donald Trump?
Wall Street Journal published a story written by Abe Foxman. Foxman is the longtime head of the Anti-Defamation League and Foxman happens to be a progressive Democrat.
The Journal article talks about the battle that Donald Trump thought when he moved to Palm Beach. Here’s a snippet that will tell you everything you need to know about whether or not Donald Trump is a racist.
Mr. Trump also has resorted to the courts to secure his foothold here, and many residents wince at the attention his legal battles with the town have drawn — to the town in general, and to the admission practices at some of Palm Beach’s older clubs in particular.
…The culture clash began to approach a climax last fall, when Mr. Trump’s lawyer sent members of the town council a copy of the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a film that deals with upper-class racism. Mr. Trump then approached the town council about lifting the restrictions that had been placed on the club. He also asked some council members not to vote on the request because their membership in other clubs created a conflict of interest.
Last December, after the council refused to lift the restrictions, Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Palm Beach, alleging that the town was discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans. The suit seeks $100 million in damages.
… Mr. Foxman seems pleased that Mr. Trump has elevated the issue of discriminatory policies at social clubs. “He put the light on Palm Beach,” Mr. Foxman says. “Not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination. It has an impact.”
In recent weeks, Mr. Foxman says, the league has received calls from Jewish residents telling of how Palm Beach clubs are changing. Locals concur that in the past year, organizations such as the Bath and Tennis Club have begun to admit Jewish patrons. The Palm Beach Civic Association, which for many years was believed to engage in discriminatory behavior, this month named a Jewish resident as its chief officer.
In other words, Abe Foxman, who’s not likely to be voting for Donald Trump and who’s spent his entire life fighting racism, says that Donald Trump is not a racist.
On the other hand, let’s take a look at Hillary Clinton, who is going to get a pass on everything from major media outlets.
Salon magazine, a very far left publication and Clinton supporter, published an article about Hillary’s racism. And guess what, it’s real.
The article in question talks about how Clinton used the term “off the reservation” in reference to Trump during an interview with Jake Tapper. Native Americans were outraged. Her staff apologized but not a peep from Hillary.
With reference to Blacks, the Huffington Post wants to know, “How Can Black People Trust Hillary Clinton After the 2008 Campaign?”
The lead for the article, “Hillary Clinton appears to be playing cynical racial politics again, as she did in 2008. It’s just got a different look and feel.” The article goes on to talk about how Hillary says what she needs to say to appeal to minorities even though her actions don’t match her words.
You can bet the media will be trying to paint Donald Trump is a racist for the next four months and they’ll be working every bit as hard to give cover to the real racist in the campaign, Hillary Clinton.
