Trump and Fake Claims of Racism

If abdicated to left-leaning politicians, the mainstream media, and the US Catholic Bishops, our public safety, health and welfare would be a non-issue, as unfettered immigration fits their political agenda.

Trump's Border Crisis and Fake Charges of Racism

Fake News and Racism

In electing Donald J. Trump as America’s 45th president, thinking Americans were basically rejecting the Cultural Marxism and Alinsky-style activism of the Left. 
 
Virtually none of us on the Right looked at this president as somehow being the embodiment of morality or political correctness. No, it was his brash contrast to the political status quo, vocal opposition to political correctness, and offering an alternative to Obama’s socialist model of “hope and change” that sparked our interest, and invigorated our sense of national pride. 
 
If abdicated to left-leaning politicians, the mainstream media, and the US Catholic Bishops, our public safety, health and welfare would be a non-issue, as unfettered immigration fits their political agenda.
 
Under Alinsky’s model of community organizing and social activism, of which President Obama is a student, for a cause to become effective and successfully motivate their troops to action, an enemy must be fabricated. In Alinsky’s formula, the agenda is more important than the truth. 
 
In today’s political arena, the Alinsky Activists on the Left are manufacturing an enemy in Trump. Their goal is to divide America along racial lines. Is it working?
 
This is an important fact to recognize when we consider the near constant barrage of attacks on Trump since he won the 2016 Republican Primaries. The loudest cries and accusations against Donald Trump are that he is somehow “racist.”
 
These claims of racism are generally surrounding Trump’s stated goal of “keeping America safe.” Virtually every time candidate, now President Trump has spoken on the National Security aspects of enforcing legal immigration, he has been lambasted as a “racist” from the FAKE NEWS Media and Socialist Democrats. 
 
Please tell me, what is racist about insisting that we as a nation enforce our immigration laws. What is evil about seeking to mitigate threats of potential terrorists entering from countries who actively support terrorism in the middle east? When our president began cracking down on violent criminal gangs (primarily from south of the border), he called these criminal thugs and illegal immigrants “Animals,” because of their viscous brutality. That became a “doggy whistle” from Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and others on the Left, triggering their base to hate everything Trump.
 
In each of the above instances, the Left attempted to turn Trump into the enemy of all immigrants. In Trump’s goal to protect ALL Americans, regardless of race, he continues to be painted as a hater and a racist.
 
According to Black Conservatives, Larry Elder and Candace Owens,

“If Trump is Racist, he’s terrible at it.”

In the opinion of Koinonia News, President Trump is “an equal opportunity offender.” It is simply his crass nature to push back at every contrary voice — no matter their race, creed, gender, or sexual identity. Rosie O’Donnell and Megan Kelly are just two of many examples. What race was Robert De Niro when Trump called him “a very low IQ individual”? What race was Rosie O’Donnell when Trump called her “dumb”? What race was MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough when Trump called him “crazy”? What race was former Texas Gov. Rick Perry when, during a campaign speech, Trump mocked him for his eyewear? “He put on glasses so people think he’s smart. …” said Trump. “People can see through the glasses.” What race was MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski when Trump called her “dumb as a rock”? How many white politicians does Trump slam when he criticizes “stupid” trade deals?
 
Why is it racist to insist that we take measures along our southern borders to curb the flow of illegal drugs, violent criminal gang members, terrorists, disease, and human trafficking? These are not race issues, but rather matters of National Security and sovereignty, health, and economic prosperity.
 
Political commentator Larry Elder recently pointed to Abraham Lincoln, in an interesting observation, “when informed that General Ulysses S. Grant was a drunk, famously asked Grant’s accusers what whiskey he was drinking so Lincoln could send a barrel to every general in the army. Keep this in mind,” said Elder, “when President Donald Trump’s critics accuse him of “racism” against blacks.
 
Under this so-called “racist” President, all Americans, including blacks appear to be thriving. Both Elder and Owens recognize that unemployment in the black community is at an all time low, since the government began keeping numbers.
 

Cutting Illegal Immigration Isn’t Racist, it is actually Pro-American

 
According to a 2013 research paper by Harvard economist George Borja, “Immigration and the American Worker,” he showed that by “classifying workers by education level and age and comparing differences across groups over time shows that a 10% increase in the size of an education/age group due to the entry of immigrants (both legal and illegal) reduces the wage of native-born men in that group by 3.7% and the wage of all native-born workers by 2.5%.”
As to illegal immigration, Borjas says: “Although the net benefits to natives from illegal immigrants are small, there is a sizable redistribution effect. Illegal immigration reduces the wage of native workers by an estimated $99 to $118 billion a year, and generates a gain for businesses and other users of immigrants of $107 to $128 billion.” The above research shows us that, if successful, the result Trump’s goal of reducing illegal immigration will result in a net increase of both employment and income. Guess what, Trump’s policies are working across all ethnic lines.
 
If Trump set out to hurt blacks, Muslims, and Mexicans by pushing economic policies that helped reduce unemployment across all sectors to an all-time low; by attempting to stop unskilled illegal alien workers from competing with unskilled Americans of all races for jobs and wages; and by empowering inner-city parents, rather than the government, to pick the school for their children, then Trump needs to go back to his “Alt-Right” school of racism.
 
As Christians we must resist the knee jerk reactions that the Mainstream Media and Left Wing Politicians are hoping to engender with their imprecatory lies. Many religious leaders, especially Catholics are jumping onboard the leftist agenda. Pope Francis and the United States Conference of Bishops(USCCB) are actively condemning Trump’s stance on immigration and the wall. In taking this stand, they are saying that our National Sovereignty is immoral. These leaders are taking the stand against their own teachings which state that “immigrants must respect the laws of their host country.” The US Catholic Bishops, don’t seem to care about the immense problem of human trafficking, or that unvetted illegal immigrants are bringing in deadly diseases such as Smallpox, Polio, Tuberculosis, and others. Combine these issues with the atrocities of Criminal Gangs such as MS13, and other crimes including murder and drug deaths directly attributed to illegal immigrants, and the USCCB’s support of illegal immigration appears to be reprehensible.
 
Yes, we as Christians are to have a special heart for the poor, and downtrodden, however, as Koinonia News often points out, the US is failing to take care of the poor we already have. Additionally, we do not have the resources to inculcate the poor of the world, let alone those from South and Central America. The Left continues to make false promises, promises they cannot and have no intention of keeping — talk about immoral! The policies of the Socialist Left have had the result of keeping minorities impoverished, destroying families, and encouraging instigating unparalleled crime rates among black and Latino communities.
 
The Democrats have been making empty promises to minority communities since LBJ, instituting one social program after another, with no visible signs of improving the conditions of the impoverished. To the contrary, in many areas, the economic situations have deteriorated. Trump, in about two years is putting Americans of ethnicity back to work in record numbers.
 
So, I leave you with this question: Who is the Racist Trump or the Democrats — make an informed decision.
