“Irredeemable”? In This Battle For Survival, Donald Trump And His Supporters a.k.a. White America Are In It Together
A Republican headquarters building is firebombed. [Republican HQ in Orange County firebombed, by Jim Morril, Charlotte Observer, October 16, 2016] Trump supporters’ cars are vandalized. [Police on the lookout for vandals who spray painted cars outside Trump rally in Bangor, by Michael Shepherd, Bangor Daily News, October 16, 2016]. Trump supporters are repeatedly being assaulted. Trump himself is the object of an assassination attempt by an illegal immigrant. And that’s only the beginning of what’s coming, both for Donald Trump himself and for Trump supporters.
The Left, for example hectoring Muslim immigration lawyer Khizr Khan, love to mock the idea Donald Trump has made sacrifices, but the truth is Donald Trump has paid a steep personal price after declaring for President. If he loses, the Left will move to destroy him as a private individual. And they are going to try to do the same to his supporters.
A huge number of companies abandoned Donald Trump after he announced his opposition to immigration. His brands have lost millions; bookings for his hotel properties have dropped 59 percent [Bookings at Trump Hotels Plummet, Priceonomics Data Studio, May 25, 2016]. Billionaire Mark Cuban smirks that Trump will go bankrupt within a few years if he loses the election because of his “toxic brand” . [Mark Cuban’s New Trump Troll: Bets He’ll Go Personally Bankrupt Over “Toxic Brand”, by Ryan Parker, Hollywood Report, September 29, 2016]. And he’s probably right.
While Trump’s courageous, America-First campaign inspired millions of people across the country who had given up on politics, it also fuelled the wrath of the American Left. The supporters of Hillary Clinton don’t just hate Trump, they want to destroy Trump’s (overwhelmingly white) supporters. A recent poll showed 53% of Clinton voters believe whites have too much influence in society, compared to just 8% of Trump’s supporters. [Poll: Hillary Clinton Voters Think America Is “Too White,” HeatStreet, September 28, 2016] This can only mean that an intensified form of racial socialism will be imposed if Clinton wins the White House.
One vehicle for this attack against whites will be Black Lives Matter, which is already targeting Trump personally. This past weekend, the Trump International Hotel was vandalized by Black Lives Matter supporters, with threatening “No Justice, No Peace” and “Black Lives Matter” graffiti sprayed by the entrance. [Black Lives Matter Vandalizes Trump International in DC – Liberal Media COMPLETELY IGNORES Attack, by Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, October 2nd, 2016].
Days before and not far from the Trump hotel in D.C., President Barack Obama continued his increasingly flagrant inciting of the Black Lives Matter thugs—who, remember, have been implicated in at least 10 police assassinations—when he raised a Black Power fist while entertaining the 2016 Olympians as well as blasts from the past Tommie Smith and John Carlos, infamous for raising Black Power fists back during the 1968 Olympics:
“Their powerful silent protest of the 1968 games was controversial, but it woke folks up, and it created a greater opportunity for those that followed,” Obama said.
The White House extended the invitation at the time of a national debate over San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose decision to take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem has sparked a heated debate over the Black Lives Matter ..movement.
At a town hall-style forum with military families in Virginia Thursday, Obama said Kaepernick should be sensitive to the feelings of Gold Star families hurt by his refusal to stand for the flag — but also that people should understand the frustrations of black Americans about the shooting of unarmed African-Americans by police.

The people with a right to be frustrated with a black community prepared to riot on behalf of criminals are those white Americans who find themselves caught in the crosshairs. President Obama, the Main Stream Media and these extremist activists have enabled a surge of violence leading to nightmarish scenes, such as Americans being trapped in a car during urban riots, pleading for help. [Charlotte motorists trapped in standstill pleaded for rescue from protests, by Mark Washburn, Charlotte Observer, September 26, 2016].
And the frank racial hatred underlying these riots shouldn’t be overlooked. After all, a reporter from a Philadelphia news station got a black rioter in Charlotte to candidly admit on film that “white lives don’t matter,” confirming the anti-white nature of the riots. [Do ‘White Lives Matter’ in Charlotte? Internet Outrage Grows After Protests Turn Violent, Heat Street, September 23, 2016].
But Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton continues to rail against “systemic racism” as culprit behind police shootings of black people [In wake of Keith Scott shooting, Hillary Clinton visits Charlotte, By Hannah Fraser-Chanpong, CBS News, October 2, 2016]. Of course, the facts present a far different picture.
Consider: A Harvard study found there is no racial bias by police in shootings, despite The New York Times crying crocodile tears over every black male shot by police [Surprising New Evidence Shows Bias in Police Use of Force but Not in Shootings, by Amanda Cox, New York Times, July 12, 2016].
The report actually found that white people are more likely to be shot by police then blacks [How a controversial study found that police are more likely to shoot whites, not blacks, by Max Ehrenfreund, Washington Post, July 13, 2016]. This confirms what Peter Moskos, assistant professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the City University of New York, discovered.
“He reported that roughly 49 percent of those killed by officers from May 2013 to April 2015 were white, while 30 percent were black. He also found that 19 percent were Hispanic and 2 percent were Asian and other races. Adjusted to take into account the racial breakdown of the U.S. population, he said black men are 3.5 times more likely to be killed by police than white men. But also adjusted to take into account the racial breakdown in violent crime, the data actually show that police are less likely to kill black suspects than white ones.”
[Police kill more whites than blacks, but minority deaths generate more outrage: Analysis contradicts widespread views about racial targets, By Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times, April 21, 2015]
Most damning, a Washington State University study found that “even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects.”[This study found race matters in police shootings, but the results may surprise you, by Tom Jackman, Washington Post, April 27, 2016].
If I could say anything to Mr. Trump, I’d tell him his opponent and the current President are actively working to agitate the black population into what can only be described as anti-white hate.
Yes, it masquerades as anti-cop rhetoric, but when the riots in both Milwaukee and Charlotte kicked-off when a black cop shot a gun-toting black suspect (in both cases the black suspect refused to put the gun down), they quickly become nothing more than anti-white orgies of violence. [VIDEO: Milwaukee agitators shout ‘black power,’ attack white drivers, American Mirror, August 14, 2016]
Hillary has already condemned Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables” and “irredeemable.” If they are “irredeemable,” what kind of a future can Trump and his voters expect if she wins?
There’s a reason Donald Trump attracts such enthusiastic and dedicated supporters.
In this battle for survival, Trump and white America are in it together.
