The Republican party is full of tricksters. They let the likes of Sarah Palin and Donald Trump push their irrational, racist, xenophobic opinions into the political atmosphere to not only gauge the opinions of their constituents but to stir controversy without directly dirtying their hands. And it’s working. Those more outrageous figures, like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, and Sarah Palin get to take up countless hours of airtime building outrageous allegation after the next again President Obama and when presented with the facts, dismiss them.
Interestingly enough, these individuals who are both unable and unwilling to comprehend their own racist motives can’t see the sheer idiocy of their claims. How in this society would a black man be able to fake his place of birth and an entire state, and millions across the nation to go along with it? What person of color could garner such support? Better yet, how is it Donald Trump’s approval rating, as basic citizens are getting these now, has jumped seven points in the past week? We blame the brother for the nations financial crisis, for rescuing the banks, for not steadying the job market, yet Trump, a multi-billionaire can participate in politics without question? Is he the same as some everyday citizen?
I’ve been waiting for the day to come where a news reporter on her last week of employment or just up to her neck actually hangs up on Trump on the air. I’ve been waiting for the Freedom of Speech stature in America to run it’s course. Better yet, I’ve been waiting for Obama to sue someone’s ass for libel and keep it moving.
