Is Trump a racist? No one knows for sure. What we do know for sure though, is that Trump appeals to racists. We know that his base consists of racists. We know that Trump does not condemn racists or racist ideology forcefully. We know that Trump says and tweets racist things to get his base riled up.
It’s true that not all Trump supporters are racist but many of them are. I don’t think we will ever know what exact percentage of Trump’s base is racist. His supporters like him for a variety of reasons. The hate and racism he spews is just one reason. We do have anecdotal evidence of his supporter’s racism.
Let’s take his recent rally where his supporters chanted “send her back” in reference to Rep. Omar. That is one example of something that occurred at one of his rallies. There is another example, at another rally, where one of his supporters said “shoot them” in response to how illegals should be dealt with.
Social media is the best example that gives A LOT of anecdotal evidence of Trump’s supporters racism. Face Book. Twitter. Message boards and comment sections of news articles. You can see the racism of those who support Trump. Look at the social media platforms you are part of and see for yourself. In my case, I see a lot of racist posts on Face Book in my news feed several times a week. Racist memes. Racist comments. Racist conspiracy theories. Racist posts. Many of these posts are of things, Trump has said and tweeted. His supporters parrot what he says.
There is a lot of anecdotal evidence showing that Trump’s supporters are racist or support what Trump spews out at rallies. Unfortunately, we will never know be able to know what percentage of his base holds those views.
The Trump cultists were in place. They were waiting patiently for the hate rally to begin. They moved their MAGA hats across their tangled hair in an attempt to make them perfect for Dear Leader. They were all screaming MAGA over and over again. Thirty minutes passed and the crowd was starting to become impatient until finally the moment they were waiting for arrived! Out of the darkness, a large orange mass could be seen! The mass wobbled into the light and stopped at a nearby lectern. The crowd went crazy!! Who they see as the Messiah was a dream come true to them. Tears filled their eyes! Their hearts all beat at a fast pace! They began slobbering and drooling all over the place.
Finally the crowd got quiet. Trump, who his cultists see as the Messiah, began to speak. For over an hour and a half, he babbled out incoherent ramblings. One rambling after another. No matter what he said, the cultists showed agreement by screaming and cheering. They didn’t seem to care what he was saying or if they were being lied to. Trump then began to call people names. His cultists loved it. They cheered him on. A big smile came across his filthy, orange maggot face. The crowd was feeding into his clinical narcissism. It was all about him! He loved it! With all the cheering, the crowd fed his narcissism even more and Trump felt so loved. In an attempt to rile up his cultists more, he began to spew out some hate and racism. Racist chants began. Trump stood there without a care in the world. After several minutes, the racist chants stopped.
Trump then asked the crowd, “Who is your favorite president?” They shouted, “You are!” “Who is a stable genius”, he asked. “You are!”, the cultists shouted back. Trump then told the crowd, “No KKK robes will given out tonight. At my last rally, I didn’t have enough and a fight broke out.” The cultists were not happy. “We want our KKK robes, the crowd shouted.” Trump said, “But you all have the MAGA hats! They stand for the same ideals and values!” His cultists all said, “Oh yeah, you are right Dear Leader!!!!
The rally ended. The cultists went home to watch FOX News and got their dose of an alternative reality that they think is real. Trump went back to the White House and began tweeting into the late hours of the night.
