GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is fond of declaring that the groups he has insulted–immigrants, women, blacks, the handicapped–“love” him, but the truth is that no one loves Trump more than racist white folks who think “others” are taking over the country.
A perfect example of this can be found in Iowa right now, where a super PAC established by a white nationalists is now doing robocalls to voters. Here’s a sampling of what the calls tell those voters:
“I urge you to vote for Donald Trump because he is the one candidate who points out that we should accept immigrants who are good for America. We don’t need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture. Vote Trump.”
The voice on those calls belongs to a man named Jared Taylor. Who is Jared Taylor? Well, he’s the founder of the white supremacist magazine that goes by the title “American Renaissance.” Also referenced on the robocalls is the white nationalist group American Freedom Party, which only believes in freedom for white people.
Of course, none of this should surprise us in the least. Since the inception of his campaign, Trump has been attempting to appeal to the lowest common denominator among the American electorate. The things he says and the audiences he chooses to say them in front of are carefully picked for maximum effect.
Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke has also said that he supports Trump. If that doesn’t say all that needs to be said about the Donald, then what does?
Donald Trump is a malignant cancer on this country and is the most dangerous American political figure since George Wallace. We can only hope that he has no more electoral success than Wallace had when he ran.
