The Smear Campaign Against President Obama Tells Us Even More About Donald Trump

June 15, 2016

There is no way that the comments from Donald Trump against President Obama should ever be allowed to stand.  Our president has been a constant source of pride for this nation.  His intellect and reasoned judgments has allowed for tumultuous times to be less so.

That is why Trump’s statements this week following the mass slaughter at a gay bar in Orlando were so dark and disturbing.    Trump was simply un-American.

He darkly insinuated that our president was some sort of a secret agent for ISIS.   This is type of lingo is not new for the billionaire who earlier promoted the “birther” conspiracy theories.  It is comes out of Trump’s mouth one can just assume it is either foul or baseless, and in most cases, both.

What this all says to the voters of our nation is that Trump is built on lies.  He will say and do anything, and that fact alone makes him not having the temperament that is requited to sit in the Oval Office.  When Trump made the most ludicrous statements–lies—about Obama we all were allowed to again see that this episode tells us more about the liar than about the object of the smear.

What Trump would achieve if we were allowed real power would be nothing short of aiding jihadism.  His policies would promote the very thing that he wants us to think he would fight and try to prevent.  When Trump tells all American Muslims that they are all presumed to be terrorists he becomes the chief agent for ISIS–doing their work with a microphone larger then they will ever have on their own.  Trump’s proposed restrictions on Muslim immigration into this nation would foster deserved resentment.  It also would most sadly and needlessly promote radicalization in the very small portion of the Muslim community that has the potential for radicalization.

The smear on President Obama was shameful.  The words and proposals from Trump remain deadly to our country.

    Another point I ought to make here. I have met George W. Bush and heard him speak. He might have been misguided, but deep down he was a thoroughly decent man who cared about ALL Americans. Hell, he even spoke a paragraph or two of his speech in Spanish, so that the handful of Mexicans in the audience would feel the love too. My point is that GWB, while not our greatest President, really did care for all of his flock. That has now been lost.

    RE Barack Obama: This is the man who personally facilitated the death of Osama bin Laden. Thinking that the President just might be trending low in the jihadist opinion polls. And while I’m ranting, I would also bet that a white man from an entirely white GOP stronghold (yes, I’m talking to you, Herr Kremer) knows squat about the problems black Americans face in Rep. Barnes’ district.

    How’s about the WEDC funnels a few million into black startups in Milwaukee and then you can lecture Mandela Barnes, huh Kremer? Hahahaha.

    James echoes your point of view. He says the GOP has given up the dog-whistle and lurched straight for the foghorn when it comes to proclaiming their racism. That too many of the GOP elected officials are reticent about coming out against Trump’s racism gives more credence to the way we feel–that the GOP is a hot bed of racism from top to bottom.

    It worries me that these way-beyond-dog-whistle appeals to racism are now becoming common currency in the GOP. Witness the current tirade by Jesse Kremer (R-suburbs) against Mandela Barnes after Barnes dared to suggest (correctly, IMHO) that the fundamentalist Christianity adhered to by much of the WIGOP (although Barnes did not link this fundamentalism to the Republicans) might result in the slaughter of more gay Americans. “Rep.” Kremer also didn’t miss the opportunity to smear our President for being supposedly anti-American and pro-jihadist. I can’t even believe what I’m reading anymore.
