Donald Trump is a racist.
Yesterday, Donald Trump went on a racist tweet binge. In addition to his usual “China Virus” tweets, he went after the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians for considering changing their racist names and tweeted, “Indians, like Elizabeth Warren, must be very angry right now!” And, he went after NASCAR and the sport’s only black driver, Bubba Wallace.
Last month after NASCAR banned the hate flag from all its events, a noose was found in the garage of Wallace’s team. There was an investigation by the FBI which determined the noose was left there from last season and used as a rope pulley-thingy for the garage door…the electric garage door. But before they came to that determination, NASCAR and all the drivers stood in support for Wallace and held a demonstration against hate. Racist hated that. They saw it as another threat to their white privilege.
Trump tweeted, “Has Bubba Wallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!”
No. Bubba Wallace never did apologize for that. Why? Because he doesn’t owe anyone an apology. Bubba didn’t do anything. While Trump and his spokesgoon are calling the noose incident a “hoax,” and yesterday Kaleigh McEnany, who promised she’d never lie to us, compared it to the Jussie Smollett incident, this was not a hoax.
There was a noose in Bubba Wallace’s garage. Bubba Wallace didn’t put it there or even see it. NASCAR discovered the noose and informed him. Even the FBI used the term “noose” to describe it. Why? Because it was a noose. And while saying it was there from last year, that’s not very reassuring. Why was it ever cool to hang nooses in NASCAR? According to the FBI, it wasn’t a hate noose, instead, just your average everyday common garage noose.
Also, there are over 1,100 garages at NASCAR venues. Only one had a noose in it. And out of over 1,100 garages, they gave the only one that had a noose in it to the ONLY black guy? I’m not into conspiracy theories but I am into facts. Those are the facts.
Donald Trump’s other racist contention was the Confederate flag being banned from NASCAR. McEnany said he wasn’t taking a position on it, yet he clearly did in his tweet. If racist Trump wasn’t taking a position, then why did he lie about the ratings and blame it on the hate flag being removed?
Donald Trump is a racist and he’s putting all his eggs into one basket of racist deplorables. But even NASCAR realizes the racist redneck base is shrinking and they’re appealing to a wider fan base. Donald Trump is refusing to do that. While Donald Trump bitches about fictional ratings, he should look at real polls. If polls were ratings, and they are, Donald Trump’s ratings are in the gutter…just like his politics.
If Donald Trump had a race car, it would have Pepe the Frog on it. Donald Trump is sponsored by hate. White supremacists and neo-Nazis love him. The hate conspiracy and online forums, 4chan and Qanon are working to reelect Trump. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham, the Eva Braun of cable news, love him. Donald Trump is their champion.
Every day, Donald Trump tells his supporters he’s a racist while at the same time, telling the rest of us he’s not. While he tweets support for the Confederate flag, spokesgoon McEnany says he hasn’t taken a position. Beyond the lie, also note she didn’t state he opposes the flag. He is a racist.
But we should also take note of who else is sponsoring his hate…so we can make sure we aren’t inadvertently sponsoring his racism by supporting those corporations. Corporations like Taco Bell, Jimmy John’s, WWE, Equinox, Bubba Gump, Marvel, Joe’s Crab Shack, Shell Oil, Nathan’s Famous, Estee Lauder, UFC, Molson Coors, Lending Tree, Hobby Lobby, CVS, Planet Fitness, LL Bean, Wendy’s, and Chick-fil-A. These are only a portion of them. Google people.
And when you see ads on my site for Donald Trump, that’s not me or WordPress supporting him. That’s his campaign buying ads and wasting money on an audience that will never support him. I don’t control the ads so stop screaming at me, fuckers.
Donald Trump is revving his engine, spinning his tires, and blowing smoke for racism. Make sure you’re not putting gas in his tank.
But, all and any help is greatly appreciated and it helps keep me going. Think of me like a street performer busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon, write another blog, make another video, and post another snarky post on social media. It’ll help keep me alive. You can also order a signed print for $40. And if you don’t like the PayPal option, you can snail mail it to my P.O. Box.
Watch me draw.
