Goodness. Well, let’s be clear, the KKK itself didn’t endorse him, rather there was a prominent article in one of their magazines, and even with that they were careful to say that it WASN’T an endorsement. Robb told The Washington Post that while the Crusader wasn’t officially endorsing Trump, his article signaled the publication’s enthusiastic support for the Republican billionaire’s candidacy. Also, far from “accepting” the non-existent endorsement, they denounced it. Mr. Trump and the campaign denounces hate in any form,” the campaign said in a statement Tuesday evening. “This publication is repulsive and their views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign.” So there’s that.
You claim he’s listing a bunch of white supremacists, without naming anyone specifically or why you think they’re white supremacist. Honestly, that term has been thrown around as loosely by the left in the last few years as racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and the rest of their buzzwords. When we hear things like “all white people are racist”, it doesn’t really mean much anymore, so the claim is hollow.
Yeah, a lot of white people voted for him, and also a higher percentage of blacks and hispanics then voted for Romney when he was running against a black man. So there’s that.
You can say whatever you like, and I’m more than happy to engage with any actual facts and argumentation, but here’s the bottom line. If you honestly believe that half of white people would support slavery again, you’re an idiot. Either that or you’ve had absolutely zero interactions with the world around you.
I hate ad hominems. In all my posting here on Medium this is the first time I’ve said anything personal about a writer, rather than just rebutting the substance. That’s how dumb that comment was.
