The GOP candidate offered a sensible speech
on Monday on reforming our immigration system to work better for Americans:
But the current politically correct response cripples our ability to talk and think and act clearly…. The bottom line is that the only reason the killer was in America in the first place was because we allowed his family to come here…. We have a dysfunctional immigration system which does not permit us to know who we let into our country, and it does not permit us to protect our citizens.
Of course, Trump’s pragmatism was also calibrated to drive mad with rage the bipartisan Washington establishment that has grown rich off the conventional wisdom of Invade the World/Invite the World
. Trump noted:
That is the choice I put before the American people: a mainstream immigration policy designed to benefit America, or Hillary Clinton’s radical immigration policy designed to benefit politically correct special interests….
Ask yourself, who is really the friend of women and the LGBT community, Donald Trump with his actions, or Hillary Clinton with her words? Clinton wants to allow radical Islamic terrorists to pour into our country—they enslave women, and murder gays.
The New York Times
, for example, threw aside all pretense of objectivity, “reporting”:
Mr. Trump’s speech…represented an extraordinary break from the longstanding rhetorical norms of American presidential nominees. But if his language more closely resembled a European nationalist’s than a mainstream Republican’s, he was wagering that voters are stirred more by their fears of Islamic terrorism than any concerns they may have about his flouting traditions of tolerance and respect for religious diversity.
This characterization of Trump’s rhetoric reveals more about the momentum
of the conventional wisdom—anything other than Open Borders is Hitlerism—than it does about the candidate.
The Orlando Latino gay slaughter is a nightmare for the establishment because Florida is a purple state with 29 electoral votes. And while the mainstream efforts to elicit Hispanic racialism haven’t gotten all that far outside of La Raza
circles, gays have become a popular sacralized
group. Trump’s alt-center
offer to defend gays from Muslims is part of his clever divide-and-rule strategy aimed at the obvious (but henceforth unspeakable) divisions among the Obama Coalition.
As I’ve been pointing out for years, the Democrats’ coalition of the fringes has been held together only by the KKKrazy Glue
of egging on paranoid fantasies
against straight white men.
But the GOP upstart is asking gays: Who is more likely to be on your side: Donald Trump
or Omar Mateen?
Personally, I’ve been to Trump Tower
, and I’d guess that the GOP candidate employed more than a few gay men to decorate it.
