White Supremacists Love Donald Trump Over Immigration
This week I suggest Donald Trump’s immigration policy will be the source of much news coverage. The racist language and policy suggestions from the start of Trump’s campaign for the White House some 14 months ago has in large part centered on somehow forcing roughly 11 million immigrants out of the nation at an untold expense, (not counting the legal costs) and then also building a wall–again without thought on Trump’s part–will somehow just be willingly paid for by Mexico.
Trump has been uncompromising on this matter though the professional class of politicians in the GOP want him to back off the crazy in an effort to broaden his appeal for the November election. There is no way any sensible person could agree with his stunning show of racism or be lulled into thinking he has somehow ‘changed’ and is now more reasonable with a new way of talking about immigration. (I firmly believe that this cake of an election is baked and there is no way Trump can win.)
Even if Trump were to somehow make a pivot on immigration his base of three-thumbers would howl in protest. After all it is his most ludicrous statements that has jelled his uneducated base of support from Day One.
The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel has a must read about the white supremacists who love and adore the hate filled sewage that drips from Trump’s mouth over immigration.
Jared Taylor hits play, and the first Donald Trump ad of the general election unfolds across his breakfast table. Syrian refugees streaming across a border. Hordes of immigrants, crowded onto trains. ‘Donald Trump’s America is secure,’ rumbles a narrator. ‘Terrorists and dangerous criminals kept out. The border, secure; our families, safe.’ Taylor, one of America’s foremost “racialists,” is impressed and relieved. ‘That’s a powerful appeal,’ he said. ‘If he can just stick to that, he is in very good shape.’ From his Fairfax County home, Taylor has edited the white nationalist magazine American Renaissance and organized racialist conferences under the ‘AmRen’ banner. He said that Trump should ‘concentrate on his natural constituency, which is white people,’ suggesting that winning 65 percent of the white vote would overwhelm any Democratic gains with minorities. When Trump made Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon his campaign’s chief executive last week, Taylor found reasons to celebrate. It was the latest sign for white nationalists, once dismissed as fringe, that their worldview was gaining popularity and that the old Republican Party was coming to an end.
