Trump is from the Stone Age. Is the DNC too?
The days of Donald Trump’s racist dog-whistles seem to be coming to an end. And no, not because he has had some miraculous conversion from bigot to non-bigot.
Rather, the racist dog-whistles have stopped as he is now clearly resorting to the use of dog-claxons and dog-foghorns to over-stimulate the numerous racists within the MAGA and Republican ranks.
As if there wasn’t a mountain of evidence out there as to his white supremacist credentials, our very own stable genius again confirmed what we all know about him with his repellant verbal attacks on the city of Baltimore and civil rights icon Elijah Cummins.
Add to that how Trump has then used the attempted burglary on Cummins’ home as a way to try and twist the knife even further, and the already urgent need to get Trump out of the White House as quickly as possible becomes critical.
So that’s Trump as a racist, as clear as the white rings around his eyes. But what about some of those that claim to oppose him and his bigoted world-view?
Are they part of the solution or actually part of the problem? In particular, the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Living in the age of Trump, one can become numbed to his endless nonsense, scandals and bigotry quite easily.
It’s not that one wants to, but the guy is nothing but a lightning rod for controversy in the mother of all thunder storms.
Consequently, issues that just five years ago would have been headline political news become quickly submerged by Trump – the conductor of chaos. Case in point?
On Monday July 29 th , several senior staffers at the DNC quit their posts in protest at the DNC abjectly failing to make good on its campaign promise of promoting racial diversity within the organization. It turns out that the DNC are way more interested in rewarding party loyalty rather than honoring that promise.
“There is not one person of color — black or brown, that I’m aware of — at any position of authority or decision-making in the DCCC [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee],” Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus told HuffPost. “It is shocking and something needs to be done about it.”  Despite the inevitable hand-wringing of the DNC in the aftermath of the resignations, one still has to ask as to how this is even a thing in the post-Obama Democratic Party of the twenty-first century?
How does the DNC expect non-white America to vote for their candidates when they are unwilling to diversify their own ranks?
