It seems that controversy seems to follow our President wherever he goes, and with whatever he decides to say that isn’t in the teleprompter! Where do I start? First, with ESPN journalist Jemele Hill, who called President Trump a white supremacist on her personal Twitter account while having general conversation with some folks on a thread. This prompted a sitting President to respond by having one of his staff call for her firing. It was alleged that Hill’s comments were a “fireable offense.” Really? I’m not gonna even go here. I think Hill and anyone else should be able to say or write what they want to write regarding certain issues, as long as they have evidence to back up their allegations. Journalists usually make a living offending somebody! My broader question is, “Where was she wrong?”
Trump appointed numerous “Alt-Right” ultra conservatives to many cabinet posts. He seemed to appoint a few “self-hating” black folks to posts as well. With all that, he didn’t immediately condemn white supremacists for their rally in Charlottesville, which created an environment that led to the death of a young woman. (If it’s intended to be peaceful, I support the rights of even white supremacists to rally! I don’t have to agree with them to support their constitutional rights!) When the president later hesitantly condemned this gathering, he would take it back, saying there was blame to be passed around on “both sides?” The President has allegedly made statements saying black people are inherently lazy. That he only wants Jewish people counting his money. That women let you grab them by the p***y’ when you are famous and a whole bunch of other charges, the most serious of which is an alleged sexual misconduct/assault s against underage girls, which come up every now and then, only to go away again! I understand, all of the above charges are simply “allegations.” The fact that they even exist at all makes me wonder to what standards do we hold the highest office in our land?
At an Alabama rally just this week, Trump ‘really’ called for NFL players that take a knee in support of banned QB Colin Kaepernick’s right to free speech and peaceful protest to be fired by their employers, saying, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now … He is fired’.”
As you might guess, the reaction from NFL coaches, management, and the players themselves, wasn’t favorable! Still, it doesn’t matter. This President isn’t used to thinking about what he says and how he says it. All he’s used to, as a business man, is barking orders and having someone follow them! “Play you dogs! I don’t pay you to have an opinion or be civic minded when it comes to sports! Leave that to someone else!” That’s what he really means! Apparently, many NFL owners who supported his election bid with finances, agree in some way! I can say this, If our President isn’t an overt racist in the “bad” sense, (You know. The KKK, cross-burning-lynching type.) then he certainly is a Eugenicist! (That’s an intellectual version of the same thing.)
Here’s what the New World encyclopedia defines as a Eugenicist: “Eugenicists advocate specific policies that (if successful) would lead to a perceived improvement of the human gene pool…The most disputed aspect of eugenics has been the definition of “improvement” of the human gene pool, such as what comprises a beneficial characteristic and what makes a defect. This aspect of eugenics has historically been tainted with scientific racism. Early eugenicists were mostly concerned with perceived intelligence factors that often correlated strongly with social class.” In other words, they want to believe that certain ‘other than white’ people are genetically inferior!
So alleged comments by Trump concerning, “black laziness” or Obama’s birthplace…or questioning if the former President really was qualified to attend Harvard University law school, actually are right in line with his and Eugenicists feelings that they/we come from an ‘inferior’ gene pool! We’ve heard him boast of his family and how ‘smart’ they are! (That’s inherited.) But the bigger question is, how does one protect the ‘superior’ gene pool? They would have to make sure those ‘impure people’ are kept away from their ‘pure’ circles! Why else doesn’t he seem to know that speeches like the one made against NFL players are so divisive? He wants to segregate again, and keep those ‘other folks’ away. Keep those ‘less intelligent ones” in their place! When you approach everything he says and does with Eugenics in mind, it all makes sense. “Close our borders! Ban certain people from entering our shores. Keep those ‘lazy’ folks out of positions of power and or influence! When they rise up, “kick that son of a bitch out!” Only certain types of those ‘lazy’ people are allowed inside our circles.”
Eugenicists and some white people want to return to a day when they made all the important decisions, and acted with impunity! White people were a vast majority of the USA population, and never had to look backwards or even sideways while living their lives and pursuing happiness! Within decades, many studies suggest there’ll be more ‘other’ people in the USA than whites! This inevitable destiny must be reversed! In closing, I ask that you remember that famous scene from the movie, “In the Heat of the Night.” Sidney Poitier’s character asks a question of a rich, influential white man (Mr Indicot) as he and the sheriff, played by Rod Steiger, investigate a local murder. The white man slaps, Poitier, (Mr. Tibbs) in the face because he is offended by the fact that he’s a suspect being questioned. Poitier immediately slaps the white man back across the face, shocking him and the audience at the time, I’m sure! The white man looks at the sheriff and expects Poitier to be dealt with by the law! He says to Poitier, “There was a time where I could have had you shot!” The key word there is “WAS!”
Some, after decades of perceiving ‘other people’ flooding to America and ‘ruining the white gene pool’ would love to see those days return. President Donald J. Trump and many of those who act oblivious to his apparent less-than-harmonious points of view, appear to be on the same page. Look at it through the lens of Eugenics and it won’t surprise you at all! Get used to the fact that some…perhaps many…only perceive America as beautiful or great, if white is in front of it!
