A Trump hater, who goes by a profile name that is not his real name on Facebook, reached out to me through the site’s IM service. Since we are not Facebook Friends, the IM was listed under the “Message Requests” area where you can read it and then decide if you want the person to be able to see your page beyond the privacy settings you’ve set up.
How he knows of me he never said, but I think what he said is very telling for the typical Trump hater. This man didn’t threaten me with violence, but he did insult me without ever knowing me. He either became aware of me through my writing for David or from some other media where my work was published.
Here’s what he wrote at precisely 8 am est today:
“On the wrong side of history Rich. When it shakes out Trump defenders and supporters will be looked upon as rubes. The lesson will be how did intelligent compassilnate people become so enamoured of the power weilded by a sociopath? I can argue Clinton was no better and in many ways worse. That being said, the most important conversation that we can have in our lives is about race. In line 138a of Plato’s Apology, Socrates writes “The unexamined life is not worth living” that is true and what he failed to address directly is that the examined life is painful especially in matters of race and America’s constant and brutal suppression, intimidation and genocide in its borders. The fact is, is that if you or I had to live withoutbour privelege, we would not survive it. Not trying to change your mind, just saying reading Cornel West, W.E.B. DuBois, Langston Hughes and Thoreau was where I began a conversation abd education into lives lived outside of my own.”
I didn’t fix his spelling or grammar errors, and I’m not going to insult him over it, because a lot of people, myself included, make typos when writing in an emotional state.
But I will go over why I believe this man is mired in ignorance, where it comes from, and I’m going to do it in the form of an open letter.
Thanks for reaching out, guy who doesn’t give his real name.
Actually, I think history is on our side, and not yours, and here’s why if you care to listen.
First off, do you always start conversations across the aisle by insulting people, by calling them rubes? There’s a great book by Dale Carnegie called How To Win Friends and Influence People. You can pick a copy up at Amazon by using the link I provided. When you start off a conversation that way it puts you in several camps in the other person’s mind, none of them complimentary.
Judging by how you spoke to me, I’m just going to be frank. Guys like you are haters. You drank the leftist Kool-Aid and I bet you always ask what’s the favor of the month. I’m not kidding here. You have bought into a host of lies by the Left.
Donald Trump, throughout his adult life, was never regarded as a racist. Only when he started running for president as a Republican did those lies begin. Every attack on him for racism has been a lie.
It is highly insulting for people like you to call Trump supporters racist when you don’t know what you’re talking about concerning the Trump movement.
Here’s some of the lies that probably brought you to your preconceived notions.
No, he did not refuse to rent to black people. No, he did not say that neo nazis and white nationalists are “very fine people.” In fact, I can prove to you that Trump condemned those groups strongly in the Charlottesville speech, and CNN and MSNBC edited it out, because I have the speech on video where he condemned them. Also, the left-wing site Politico has the entire text of that speech and his condemnation of the hate groups is in there.
Here’s what Trump actually said during his Charlottesville speech, according to the transcript provided by Politico:
“Oh no, George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down – excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? Okay, good. Are we going to take down his statue? He was a major slave owner. Are we going to take down his statue? You know what? It’s fine, you’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats – you had a lot of bad people in the other group too.”
No, he did not call all Mexicans rapists. It is absurd to believe what the Left in media and the Democratic Party wants you to believe. It’s ridiculous to think that a man who is announcing he is running for president of the United States would call all Mexicans rapists. The media changed the word “their” to “they’re” in an effort to stop him from the get go. Why? Read on.
You can Google photos of Trump with all kinds of civil rights people, who loved him for his work in the black community. I have photos of him with the race hustlers too, hanging out with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
But did you know that Trump won the Ellis Island Award for his efforts as a developer, and many of the projects he did employed thousands of black workers? They don’t give that award out to racists. He accepted his award sharing the stage with two other recipients receiving the same award that day; Rosa Parks and Muhammad Ali. Do you think the Ellis Island Award folks would have a racist anywhere near Rosa Parks? Seriously?
There are countless stories by black and Hispanic Americans who love and adore Trump for what he’s done for them, their families and communities, but the CNNs, MSNBCs NY Times, and Washington Post’s of the world aren’t going to talk about that, because they hate his guts.
If Trump has no history of racism, but the exact opposite, then why do you think the Left hates him so much, and why play the race card on him only after he decided to run for president? It’s because he interrupted their revolution, that’s why. He was not supposed to win. Hillary was supposed to win 2016, and with her control-freak style of governing she was going to cement everything the DC swamp has setup for the last 30+ years. The charge of racism is what Democrats do, because it’s vile to be accused of racism, and when they have no other argument they go to that lowest common denominator.
You probably don’t know these things, but ask yourself this: Would a racist intentionally target black and Hispanic communities for economic growth the way Trump has, and come out bragging about being so successful? Honestly consider that question, because we no longer care how much you leftists think down political rabbit holes, the reality is no racist would ever do that. Never. Ever.
Thanks to Trump’s policies, before the Chinese virus hit, black and Hispanic unemployment went to the lowest levels ever recorded. Don’t take my word for it, look it up yourself. The Left initially tried to say it was Obama’s doing, and that’s laughable. He had 8 miserable years of economic disaster, and he blamed the previous administration for the whole 8 years. At some point during 8 long years, you have to start asking why they still blamed the previous administration.
You need to understand something. The Democrats and RINO Republicans act like they’re fighting each other in public, but behind the scenes they get along just fine, because they have together been involved in schemes that enriched themselves and their families at the expense of American workers.
I’m sorry, but you’re on the wrong side of history here. The globalists in DC would make backroom deals with other countries that got them huge “special donations” to their campaign bank accounts from said countries and in many cases very lucrative gigs for their families, like Joe Biden who sold us out to China and Ukraine for very lucrative deals for his son Hunter Biden. John Kerry acted many times in conjunction with Biden to enrich his stepson.
All they had to do was write and pass laws that allowed American industries, which translates into American jobs, to go overseas so that the other countries could start manufacturing there.
Their actions created a Forgotten Man Syndrome where millions of American workers lost their jobs over 30 years. The DC swamp guys made out like bandits, and we lost the American dream, which is our birthright.
Trump reversed everything the progressive movement did for the last 30+ years and look at what happened. We were told that the Obama economy was the new normal and that we had better get used to the decline. Trump turned it all around in under his first two years in office.
If you go on YouTube and do some research you can easily find videos of Trump saying the same things for decades that he says now. Many of those beliefs he spouted for all those years were implemented as president, and he turned the ship around in every economic leading indicator. You’re just not being told by the news sources you use, because it doesn’t fit their leftist revolution narrative.
As for your arguments of white privilege, I don’t subscribe to that nonsense. I think the term white privilege is a leftist construct designed to get people to shut up. The Left has always been about shutting up the opposition. Just look at how the tech giant social media companies are censoring conservative voices by the millions. They don’t want people like you to hear their side. Saying white people have some sort of privilege is calling them racist for being born white. Isn’t that what racism is, classifying people into a mindset based only on their race?
I got news for you. It’s not so much about white and black as it is about socialism and capitalism. Every single city run by Democrats for decades, some a hundred years, has the same problems; high unemployment, high drug and alcohol abuse, high government dependency, high property crime rates, large high school drop out rates, high gun violence, and it’s all because of progressive Democrats who have run these cities for decades, some a hundred years.
Trump ran for office to rescue America from the greedy politicians who sold your birthright to the highest bidders. Had you listened to his campaign speeches instead of left-wing media personalities you would have heard him talk about the forgotten men and women and how he would make sure they were forgotten no more.
He wasn’t talking to white people. He was talking to Americans, and that includes people of all races who wanted to take back their birthright. And, for the first time in my lifetime, we elected a president who strongly went out of his way to fulfill the promises he made. Only the Trump haters tried to stand in his way because he interrupted their plan. They had a plan, and Trump won, and unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last four years you know that they have done everything they could to get rid of him ever since. They threw false accusations at him about Russian collusion, they called him a racist, a sexist, and all the other nonsense, but it’s all because he ended their revolution. They impeached him for something he didn’t do, but Joe Biden as Vice President absolutely did, and they ignore what Biden did while mentally convicting an innocent president.
Spare us your rhetoric, because we have nothing in common with leftists. Unlike liberals and conservatives, leftists don’t believe in America and want to fundamentally change it into just another socialist utopia where everyone is equally miserable.
Unlike Democrats, Trump doesn’t play race games. He is simply trying to help American workers who have been screwed by the people they elected, and it sounds like you’ve fallen for the lies they throw at him all to protect themselves and their status in life.
For Trump to succeed he needs people like you to wake the hell up and see for real what has been done to them. Drop your race-baiting attitude and stop thinking everything is about race. While racial issues are serious, keep this one thing in mind. If you read our history, it’s patently obvious that if it were not for the Democratic Party we never would have had to do one civil rights bill. Every civil rights bill passed was to help black Americans overcome the obstacles placed in their way by Democrat policies.

I can tell you now that the Republicans are not the answer to all of your problems, but at the same time, I can say without a doubt that all of your problems are because of Democrats.
Stop voting for Democrats and change will come.
