The Sound of Silence
Hillary Clinton gave a speech yesterday in which she not only called out Donald Trump for his personal history of discrimination. The racist nature of many of his policies. And the takeover of his campaign and the infiltration of the Republican Party by the Alt Right. She made clear who the Alt Right are; White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Klan. She read a few headlines from Breitbart.com that was headed by the man that is now the Trump Campaign CEO:
- “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.”
- “Would You Rather Your Child Have Feminism or Cancer?”
- “Gabby Giffords: The Gun Control Movement’s Human Shield.”
- “Hoist it High And Proud: The Confederate Flag Proclaims a Glorious Heritage.”
Hillary Clinton cited the many times Trump directly re-tweeted Neo-Nazi and White Nationalist meme’s to his millions of followers.
Previously, Republican leaders have distanced themselves from Trump when he made racist statements about a Judge born in Indiana whose parents were from Mexico. They chastised him for attacking a Gold-Star Family whose son died a hero in Afghanistan. They looked away when he called for poll-watchers and inferred American elections are rigged. They said nothing when Trump appointed Steve Bannon to lead his campaign. They knew who Bannon was. They knew what Bannon was. They know who Trump is. And they said nothing.
The Republican leadership was in a tough place. They watched in horror as Trump dismissed all the candidates they could have lived with. The “Never-Trump” movement fizzled away after never gaining traction. Almost all of them decided to support Trump despite having earlier condemned him an unqualified, totally unprepared and a con man. They worried how they could go against the will of the Republican voters. They worry about how to save their party.
And now, the Republican Leadership has to choose. The secret about the deep penetration from the Alt Right is discussed openly on every form of media. And the leadership has said nothing.
You have a choice Republicans. Proclaim you hate Hillary more that Neo-Nazi’s and White Nationalists and White Supremacists, or take back your Party. It will be tough. You’re likely to lose this election anyway with the question being will you also lose the Senate and possibly even the House. To quote Donald Trump, “What the hell do you have to lose?”
