    The Cowardice of Donald Trump

    He’s built his reputation on straight talk—but when the Republican candidate sits down with the groups he vilifies, he exhibits a striking change.

    Crusaders against “political correctness” often portray themselves as brave. They deride others for knuckling under to left-wing orthodoxy, for being too afraid of African Americans, Latinos, feminists, and gays to speak the truth. They, on the other hand, speak their mind, come what may.

    No presidential candidate has used this conceit more effectively than Donald Trump. His supporters love his willingness to say things about Mexicans, Muslims, and African Americans that ordinary politicians won’t say for fear of being called a bigot. That’s part of what they mean when they say he “doesn’t talk like a politician.”

    But over the last couple of weeks, Trump has illustrated something important about the anti-politically correct. They’re most comfortable confronting PC orthodoxy when the people they’re confronting aren’t around. Once they actually encounter African Americans, Latinos, and other minority groups, they become a lot less brave.

    In an effort to soften his image, Trump has recently begun doing something he previous avoided: Talking to blacks and Latinos. Two weeks ago, he met with his Hispanic advisory council. According to media reports, he was “humble” and “conciliatory.” Did he call for deporting the undocumented immigrants already in the US, as he has repeatedly promised his overwhelmingly white crowds? Nope. According to Jacob Monty, who attended the meeting, Trump said “deporting them is neither possible nor humane.”

    Then, last week, Trump flew to Mexico City to meet President Enrique Peña Nieto. Did he repeat the pledge that brings white crowds to their feet: That Mexico will pay for a wall along the two countries’ border? Nope. Beforehand, the two sides agreed not to discuss the subject. When Peña Nieto brought it up anyway, and announced that Mexico would never foot the bill, did Trump set him straight? Nope. Rudy Giuliani, who was attending the meeting on Trump’s behalf, reportedly declared the topic “off the table” and The Donald moved on to less controversial subjects.

    When Trump appeared publicly with Peña Nieto after their meeting, he again “avoided direct confrontation,” in the
    Washington Post’s words. He called it a “great, great, honor” to be invited to the country he has repeatedly trashed during the campaign. And he declared that he had “tremendous feelings” for the “tremendous” Mexican American people, a group he famously derided as rapists and drug dealers in his announcement speech.


    But once Trump left Mexico and addressed an overwhelmingly white, anti-immigrant crowd that evening in Arizona, the Post noted, he ditched his “subdued and cooperative tone” and “returned to the aggressive tenor that has defined much of his campaign. Repeatedly raising his voice to a yell, he said that ‘anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation.’”

    The oscillation continued this weekend, when Trump addressed an African American congregation in Detroit. “Trump’s subdued rhetoric,” noted Politico, “was a jarring contrast to his typically boisterous rallies.” The Republican nominee said nothing about Black Lives Matter being responsible for the murder of police, as he had told Bill O’Reilly. He didn’t imply, as he has to white audiences, that African Americans are prone to voter fraud. He said nothing about Barack Obama not being born in the United States. He didn’t repeat his claims that blacks should vote for him because their lives are so miserable that they have nothing “to lose.” Instead, he flattered his audience, calling black churches “the conscience of our country,” which had inspired America “toward a better moral character, a deeper concern for mankind, and spirit of charity and unity that binds us all together.” Trump’s remarks, noted the Post, constituted a “jarring shift in tone and message.”

    This isn’t surprising. Even more than most politicians, Trump lives for the approval of the crowd. His ego is so overdeveloped, and his ideological convictions so underdeveloped, that it’s hard to imagine him walking into a room and saying things he knows his audience doesn’t want to hear. But Trump isn’t alone. Put Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, or most of the other conservatives who have made a career of being anti-PC in a small room with Latinos, African Americans, or Muslims and I suspect their rhetoric would dramatically soften, too. It’s harder to speak bluntly and nastily about people when they’re staring you in the face. It’s also harder because when you actually listen to them, they often defy your stereotypes. Up close, their grievances become harder to dismiss.

    I’m glad Trump is now speaking to more diverse crowds. I’m glad because, in so doing, he’s proving that when it comes to “political correctness,” conservative politicians and pundits aren’t more courageous than their liberal counterparts. They’re just more isolated from the ethnic and racial minorities about whom they speak. When the distance disappears, the “bravery” does too.

    Howard Dean: Trump Doesn't Have a Clue About Racism Because He Is a Racist

    Posted By Ian Schwartz
    On Date September 5, 2016

    Howard Dean tells MSNBC Donald Trump doesn't understand racism because he is a racist. However, he said Trump isn't a "terrible racist that wears a hood." Dean said Trump trashing "their president," Barack Obama, will hurt him in the black community.

    "Let me tell you how incredibly incompetent Donald Trump is on the race issue," Dean said Monday morning on MSNBC. "So Donald Trump goes to a black church and people probably are not going to vote for him but appreciate it. And then he tweets this morning that because Barack Obama has been such a bad president, there won't be another black president for many years. I mean, unbelievable."

    "You reach out to a group one day and the next day you trash their president, their person they care about, and then say that all black people are tainted with the same problem. This is insane!" Dean said.

    "He has no conception of what being a racist is because he is one," Dean claimed. "I mean I don't think he's a terrible racist that wears a hood. He just has no clue about what he's talking about."

    BREAKING: HILLARY EMAIL FOUND SHOWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR KILLING CHRIS STEVENS

    Posted by Martin Walsh | Sep 5, 2016 | National Security

    Hillary Clinton has been destroyed with email hacks and document leaks for nearly two months now, and she will be waking up this morning to another one. In an email released Monday regarding Hillary’s Benghazi investigation, there was one specific message that detailed the exact location of Ambassador Chris Stevens. Because this email was sent through the unsecured server, it is highly probable that terrorists intercepted the message.

    There were five relevant emails in the cache of Clinton emails that placed Amb. Stevens in harms way:

    March 23, 2011: In this email, Clinton’s then-chief of staff Jacob Sullivan wrote to Clinton about the NATO mission in Libya. Sullivan also wrote that someone named Bill was “trying to make sure Chris Stevens gets into E. Libya.”
    March 27, 2011: This is an email between two State Department officials that was then forwarded to Clinton. Regarding his location and travel plans, the email said, “The current game plan is for Mr. Stevens to move no later than Wednesday from Malta to Benghazi. He will stage off shore initially for a one day visit during which he will have meetings with TNC interlocutors and get a sense of the situation on the ground. The goal of this one day trip is for him to lay the groundwork for a stay of up to 30 days.”
    April 8, 2011: An email among State Department employees that was later forwarded to Clinton said, “Security situation in Benghazi remains quiet. Chris Stevens & team are in the hotel, moving only for meetings as required.”
    April 10, 2011: Another email among State Department employees later forwarded to Clinton marked said, “The situation in Ajdabiyah has worsened to the point where Stevens is considering departure from Benghazi. The envoy’s delegation is currently doing a phased checkout.
    April 24, 2011: A final email among State Department employees later forwarded to Clinton: “Stevens will be meeting with MFA in one hour and will make a written request for better security at the hotel and for better security-related coordination. He still feels comfortable in the hotel. They are looking into the idea of moving into a villa, but that is some way off.”



    Hillary Called Him Chris Smith, She Didn’t Even Know His Name

    Read the email closely. It begins at the bottom with Hillary (H) writing in the subject line “Chris Smith.” Yes, Chris Smith was one of the Americans that was also killed, but it shows that the wrong name remained in the email chain. No one corrected it. And no one can argue that they were focused on “the situation,” because if they truly were, they would never have revealed his location 5 separate times in unsecured emails. Clinton claims to have been deeply affected by the death of an American Ambassador, yet she can’t even remember what his name is? Hillary allowed Benghazi to happen, she placed everyone at risk with her incompetence, and she is to blame for why he cannot go home to his family.

    The emails above are from a chain of emails that reveal Ambassador Stevens‘ location was readily available to anyone who could hack into Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private email server. Which, according to the FBI, was not very hard to do. It is very possible that these emails were intercepted, but Hillary failed these Americans several times. She failed them when she declined to adequately supply and arm them when they requested it for months, she never answered their requests for help that night for 13 hours, and she still to this day lies about how she left our Americans exposed to an attack. She didn’t care then, and she never will.

    It is possible that we will never know whether terrorists intercepted the emails on Hillary’s non-secure personal server, especially given how many programs Clinton has used to wipe her server clean, but we do see a pattern here and the American people are not believing the lies she continues to spew. To make things worse, we know she doesn’t care. The mere fact that she is willing to put her own electoral chances above the lives of four Americans, including a U.S. ambassador, should tell you all you need to know about her.

    And remember this: the Democrats rigged the election FOR her, it isn’t like they got stuck with her. She was their choice, they championed her as their nominee. So that speaks to many Democrats and reveals how corrupt and dishonest the entire party is. It’s time for America to stand up and say no. The time has come for us all to unite, and put an end to the Clinton Cartel before it is too late. Please like and share on Facebook if you agree that Hillary Clinton deserves to go to jail for her private email server, what she has done to this country, and for leaving Americans to die that night in Benghazi.

    But we do. Here’s an awesome tribute video to Amb. Chris Stevens:
