Apparently there was a point in time when Jesse ‘The Extortionist’ Jackson had a rather positive opinion of Donald Trump. In fact Trump was someone who Jackson once described as being a champion of minority empowerment. In both 1998 and 1999, Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’s DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.”
And in 1998 it was even Jackson who introduced Trump ahead of his speech at the conference. Jackson stated then that Trump was a model for “people on Wall Street to represent diversity.” And he went on to add, “We need your building skills, your gusto.” Jackson introduced Trump — whom he called a “friend” — at the same conference in 1999, where this time he was invited to speak on the “challenges and opportunities to embrace under-served communities.”
And it was also in speaking about Trump that Jackson said, “He is deceptive in that his social style is of such, one can miss his seriousness and commitment to success, which is beyond argument.” And he went on to say, “When we opened this Wall Street project he gave us space at 40 Wall Street, which was to make a statement about our having a presence there.” So one would think that since Jackson was once able to call Trump a friend he might be supporting him for president. But nope.
And yet it was also back then that Jackson had said, “Beyond that, in terms of reaching out and being inclusive, he’s done that too,” Jackson added. “He has this sense of the curious and a will to make things better.” And he added, “Aside from all of his style, and his pizazz, he’s a serious person who is an effective builder of people.” But I guess, as they say, that was then and this is now. Because Jackson seems to have a very different view of Trump today.
Because it’s these days that Jackson has a bit of a different view of the man he once called a friend. These days Jackson is busy pointing out how it is that Donald Trump, as well as his many followers, are busy helping to create what Jackson calls a rising climate of fear in America which actually contributed to the shocking deaths of five police officers in downtown Dallas. Jackson said there is an ‘anti-black mood’ in America which has also seen discrimination against immigrants, Muslims and women.
And in opining about what might now be causing the divisive mood in America, Jackson said, ‘Threats to deport 15 million immigrants…threats to build a wall between Mexico who we share 2,000 miles of a border, there’s a permissiveness towards black people [which] is readily apparent and we have been used as scape goats for deeper and deeper economic and cultural fears.’ Asked about Donald Trump and the rise of ultra-conservative groups, Jackson said, ‘He is a factor in that.
Jackson went on to say, ‘It’s not just Trump, it’s the followers of Trump; the blacks, the browns, the Muslims – we’ve been losing rights in the cause of globalization. There is a scapegoating of those who are suffering.’ Asked about how all of this was happening under the first black president and what Barry can do, he said: ‘My appeal to the President is let’s have a White House conference on violence, poverty, racial disparities and the plan to reconstruct – there is no plan to reconstruct.’
But let’s be honest here, shall we? There was hardly a soul anywhere calling Trump a racist until he ran for president as a Republican. And if Trump were a Democrat, the press would love him and he’d now likely be up by 20 points. And am I the only one who views it a bit strange that Trump events are rather massive when compared to Hitlery’s, and yet polls always show him trailing. In every election I can remember since 1972, the candidate drawing the bigger more enthusiastic crowds, won.
In truth, all of this talk about the ‘Far-Right’, the ‘Alt-Right’, or the ‘Racist-Right’ is complete nonsense. The millions of Americans supporting Trump haven’t suddenly all moved to the Far-Right! Actually, it’s the political ‘Establishment’, of both parties who have shifted rather sharply to the Left. Let’s face it, if you occupied what was considered as being the ideological center in 1965, and went to sleep for 50 years, and woke up in 2016, you’d now be accused of occupying the ideological “far right”.
And you didn’t have to budge one inch morally or ideologically to find yourself there. That whizzing sound you heard was the ideological center zooming over to the Cultural Marxist hardcore Left. All that which was once considered to be mainstream, commonsense, logical and unquestionably moral in 1965, is now considered by our political, academic and media elites, to be bigoted, ignorant, hateful, xenophobic, racist, extremist or any number of other contrived mental abnormalities.
In other words, over the course of a pretty brief period of time, historically speaking, western culture been made to experience that which can only be described as being a polar-inversion regarding its entire moral framework. What was once looked upon as being natural and beneficial to society, is now looked down upon as unnatural and harmful. And what was once looked down upon as being unnatural and harmful to society, is now looked up to as being natural and beneficial to society.
Today, patriotism, Christian values, the sanctity of human life, the traditional family, motherhood, fatherhood and out national sovereignty are all now considered to be old fashioned negatives to be, at best, tolerated and at worst, outlawed. Meanwhile it’s globalism, atheism, abortion, the single parent family, Androgyny, same-sex relationships and open borders immigration that are now all lauded as positive goals to be actively championed and tirelessly worked towards.
Calling Trump a racist isn’t really working. Nor is calling him misogynist, working. Nor a homophobe or an islamophobe. Next I suspect we’ll be hearing from that fraudulent quack, Dr. Phil, about how Trump is a psychopath. Let’s face it, that’s just how desperate the progressive left in this country has now become. But what does work is the fact that Trump is not Hitlery. Now that works! And at the end of the day all that will be necessary to defeat Hitlery is for people to get out and vote.
And personally, I pay no attention to the polls, the naysayers, the racial hucksters, like Jackson, or the state-controlled media. Because it becomes more obvious every day just how desperate they are to stop Trump, by any and all means necessary. And I don’t care what label they place on me for voting for him. On November 8th I will be voting for Mr. Trump, even if I am the only person in the country to do so. Never take counsel of your fears. I will not be dissuaded and neither should you.
And I guess what really scares me it the fact that what we are witnessing today is something that I personally view as a rather unique phenomenon. Never before in the course of human history, has an entire culture, race and/or civilization, been so willing, even eager, to choose to abandon its historical and moral foundation and decide to hand over its lands, social capital, cultural heritage and national identities to a competing alien culture – without so much as the weakest of skirmishes.
And you know, what’s even worse is the fact that there are many in the West who have been only too happy in allowing themselves to have been made to ‘evolve’ to the point where they now possess a mentality where they are able to justify, morally, and even glorify their own extinction using their own cultural beliefs as ultimate proof regarding the need for their demise. My friends, we are witnessing nothing less than western civilization participating in its own death dance. It’s frightening!
