Business community deserts Trump-Who’s next?

Industry leaders leave business advisory council

Trump says BYE BYE to business community
Trump says BYE BYE to business community

It is the corporate community that has prospered under Donald Trump, as was expected under a government owned by Republicans. The big business CEOs probably have a plan to make hay while the GOP sun shines, knowing full well the next wave from the left will be far more progressive than in the past. It should start with 2018 and culminate with the presidential election in 2020. A minimum of more seats in the House, Senate control and an honest liberal in the White House. There’s not much time so expect the worst. But wait, with the incompetency of the Oval Office lunatic, nothing has been accomplished yet, and any change in T-rump’s behavior isn’t expected any time soon.

Big business CEOs furious with Trump white nationalist sympathy

That’s why it is so crazy that he would alienate his business advisory council with the sympathetic comments he has made for racists and white nationalists by comparing them with the “alt-left in his comments over Charlottesville. As the authors indicate, the CEOs were furious over Trump putting the racist white nationalists and KKKers in the same category as the protesters. JP Morgan Chase chief executive Jamie Dimon wrote to his employees, “It is a leader’s role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart.” All we have seen in this country since January 20, is divisive rhetoric designed to do just that, to defiantly divide the people of the U.S.

Campbell Soup and 3M CEOs both leaving council

Here’s what the CEO of Campbell Soup when he, along with the CEO of 3M resigned from the council…

  • “Racism and murder are unequivocally reprehensible and are not morally equivalent to anything else that happened in Charlottesville. I believe the president should have been — and still needs to be — unambiguous on that point.”

Donald Trump at new low if possible

Dana Milbank of the Washington Post feels T-rump’s remarks over Charlottesville have brought him to a new low. I find that almost impossible. But Milbank thinks his “…canned and grudging disavowal of white supremacists, he was urged anew to say more, to be presidential, to bring the nation together. Well, late Tuesday, Trump said more and told the nation what he really thought. It was downright ugly…

  • “There, from Trump Tower in New York, was the president of the United States declaring that those protesting against Nazis were . . . the same as Nazis. ‘You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that,’ said Trump.
    Nobody wants to say that because there is — and there can be — no moral equivalence between Nazis and those who oppose Nazis. But Trump saw them as equal.”

U. S. industry heads won’t side with racist white nationalist

There is no doubt the U.S. heads of industry would not want to have anything to do with an individual that has sympathy for white nationalists and racists and with that thought, we have basically defined the lowlife voter population that elected this man president. But Steve Bannon, a top Trump adviser, is his closest connection with the alt-right dating from when Bannon headed up Breitbart News, the leading publication for the alt-right. The term alt-right is basically a fancy name for far-right extremists. Trump knows that Bannon has great influence on this group that helped get him elected.

Steve Bannon vs Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster

Reuters reports a major battle between Bannon and national security adviser Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster, who are apparently at each others throats. It could force another shake-up at the White House. Salon says that Trump is afraid of Steve Bannon and that is the reason he won’t fire him. But it is McMasters that keeps the kind of company represented by corporate CEOs, and if their reaction to T-rump’s Charlottesville response is any indication of an overall attitude, the White House can’t afford to make many more enemies. By the way, Bannon is joined by two more white nationalists in the White House: Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka.

Barack Obama saves the day

Let me leave you on a high note. Former President Barack Obama put out a tweet on Charlottesville Saturday, August 12, quoting from South African President Nelson Mandela. It said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion … .” It was the most liked tweet ever on Twitter. You can see it on NPR here.

Racism is here to stay

Racism hasn’t really changed over the years

You can talk about the strides that have been taken since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but, in a nutshell, they haven’t worked. I said in an earlier post that since 1964, radical racism has simply gone underground, with those who practice this vile lifestyle, playing in the shadows, putting on the good-guy front. Until Donald Trump. Until the White House loaded up with racists, white nationalists, and a bigotry that isn’t disguised, rather, put right there in the open for all to see. Steve Bannon is proud of his white supremacist label, flaunting it regularly around Washington. And Donald Trump is quick to tell you, Steve Bannon is his man.

Donald Trump afraid to offend white nationalist supporters

After days of not repudiating white nationalists and the Ku Klux Klan after the murder in the Charlottesville demonstration, T-rump finally denounced the KKK and neo-nazis. This was his statement

  • “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups.”

The media made me do it

Daily Progress reports that the only reason Trump changed his tone–it is widely known that he does not adhere to political correctness–is that the media made him do it. What a pathetic moment in history when it takes outcry from the media to make the President of the United States do a duty that should have been his top priority the moment that woman was killed by James Alex Fields’ car. But that would have insulted Donald Trump’s base of double-digit IQ bigots. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said, “From the beginning, President Trump has sheltered and encouraged the forces of bigotry and discrimination.” Why would we expect more just because of a death?

Sports personalities criticize Trump

LeBron James, basketball star, said, “Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again!” Steve Nash, another basketball great said…

  • “To defend white supremacists and then slang his [crappy] a— grape juice pretty much sums the man up.” Nash was referring to Trump’s remark that he knows “a lot about Charlottesville” because he owns “one of the largest wineries in the United States,” located there.

Seth Meyers on Trump Charlottesville news conference…

Even the Jews were included in Charlottesville protest

Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally was universal in its appeal with anti-Semitic lines like “Jews will not replace us”? Also heard, “This city is run by Jewish communists and criminal niggers,” one demonstrator told Vice News’ Elspeth Reeve during their march. The Atlantic reported, “As Jews prayed at a local synagogue, Congregation Beth Israel, men dressed in fatigues carrying semi-automatic rifles stood across the street.” There was more, “In the minds of white supremacists like David Duke, there is a straight line from anti-blackness to anti-Judaism.” I learned from the deep South, when you learn to hate like these people do, there are no bounds.

T-rump again reverts to bad taste

Donald Trump created an analogy between his re-tweet that was eventually pulled, where the Trump train collides with a person from CNN News (logo across face) obviously killing them. He did this just three days after the white nationalist drove into the Charlottesville woman killing her. Trump literally sanctions violence; remember when he wanted to punch the Black Lives Matter protester in the face? He also recently told a group of Long Island police that they shouldn’t be too nice with criminal suspects. That drew fire from people all across the country, including police departments. There is no end to the Oval Office lunatic’s lunacy.

Why are people still racist? A terrifying answer

The Washington Post recently asked, “Why are people still racist?” They go on to answer using a scientific point of view. The answer…

  • “In some ways, it’s super simple. People learn to be whatever their society and culture teaches them. We often assume that it takes parents actively teaching their kids, for them to be racist. The truth is that unless parents actively teach kids not to be racists, they will be.”

That is scary as hell, especially when you consider the fact that Donald Trump is President of the United States, espousing his rhetoric of bigotry.

 

Tea Party can’t seem to shake racist image

<!–[if !mso]> st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>

Last May Brendan Steinhauser, campaign dir. for FreedomWorks, an organization that coordinates Tea Party activists, said: “We don’t want the worst elements to take this over,” referring to racist that have popped up regularly throughout the Tea Party.  But without a central organization, there isn’t much to control this conglomeration of crackpots. There have been incidents of derision against Barack Obama with observers who say the president’s skin color is a powerful reason behind the movement’s existence.  Pathetic.

 

And then John White reared his ugly head in Arizona.  DA Morales did an excellent expose in the Tucson Citizen titled: “Profiles of the Tucsonright-wing: fearful Christian men with guns who are ready to kill.”  This is a must-read for any person who thinks these Tea Party nuts are just harmless political fanatics.  This is posted on Facebook for all to see but Morales has capsuled the most bigoted and erratic statements in his articles.

 

Things like, “Democrats are a cancer and you do not cure cancer you cut it out and kill it.”  In another post he says the Gabby Giffords shooting was only a training exercise put on by the Dept. of Homeland Security.  Another, “…If you vote Democrat, then you voted for hell.”  And then there is his neo-Nazi friend Harry Hughes who also hangs out with J.T. Ready who is of the same ilk.  John White is a dedicated Tea Party member who not only is a racist and neo-Nazi, but who also condones killing democrats.

 

There are more quotes from White.  “A civil war is near, a cleansing…perhaps an ethnic cleansing?  You are not taking a life…you are saving a nation.”  This is pretty heavy stuff when you consider that these maniacs can arm themselves to the hilt in the state of Arizona with some of the loosest gun laws in the nation.  There is a picture of Harry Hughes with his neo-Nazi friends, all of which look like they are holding AK47-like weapons.

 
According to Gallup and Pew Research Cos., Americans’ views of the TeaParty are at the “lowest ever.”  Gallup notes that in a drop from a support level of 30% to 25% in recent months, more Americans hold intensely negative feelings toward the movement.  Based on this one must assume that the U.S. public must be light years smarter than the morons in Congress that constantly cow tow to TPers.  More pathetic.
