For Those Who Might Need a Bit More Evidence - Trump is a Bigot...and a Moron
Yesterday Trump tweeted this [since removed, I understand]:
There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!
Yes, It sounds like a typical inane Trump tweet, but he has added something new, and repulsive..."Breeding". WTF is he trying to convey to his alt-right fans; that folks in sanctuary cities are engaging in some sort of unnatural, animalistic sexual activity which should scare the bejesus out of America's white folks.
I know, I know, its just Trump pumping up his base, but such statements would have drawn universal condemnation in the past, from both political parties. Have we gotten to the point where we expect our President to go off on bigoted rants and just accept it as normal? Let me be clear; there is nothing remotely normal about his tweet. Its horrific! You disagree? Well, what if he had tweeted: Beware, run for your lives, whites without college educations are "breeding" in the Ozarks! Would America be OK with that? Of course not, and that's the point.
