With less than two weeks to weeks to go before the 2016 Presidential Election, Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump continues to send out the message that he is a UNITER, not a DIVIDER.
TheHill.com reports that
Donald Trump called for a “new deal for black America” in a Wednesday afternoon address, as he works to bridge the gap he faces with the crucial voting bloc less than two weeks from Election Day.
Speaking in Charlotte, N.C., the GOP nominee criticized years of Democratic rule for leaving black America behind, and outlined his plan to help. My “deal is grounded in three promises: safe communities, great education, and high-paying jobs,” Trump said, speaking off what appeared to be scripted remarks
“Whether you vote for me or not, I will be your greatest champion. We live in a very divided country and I will be your greatest champion.”
Trump called on voters to repudiate Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in favor of change.
“American politics is caught in a time loop, we keep electing the same people over and over and over,” he said.
“Every day, I’m out on the trail proposing fresh solutions and new thinking. And every day, the same people, getting rich off our broken system, say we can’t change and we can’t try anything new, because it’s not good for them.”
The subdued and reverent beginning of his speech stood in sharp contrast to the fiery tack Trump usually takes at his campaign rallies, which are meant to inject his brand of politics directly into the veins of his supporters.
“I have a message for all the doubters in Washington: America’s future belongs to the dreamers, not the cynics and not the critics,” he said.
“African-American citizens have sacrificed so much for our nation. They fought and died in every war since the Revolution and from the pews and the picket lines, they’ve lifted up the conscience of our country in the long march for civil rights. Yet too many African-Americans have been left behind.”
Trump called for incentives to move companies into blighted neighborhoods to bolster employment, help African-Americans get better access to credit and push cities to declare “blighted communities” disaster areas to help rebuild infrastructure.
He also said he’d support increasing the number of police officers in such areas, connecting a lack of officers to a rise in murder rate in major cities.
But while Trump’s call focused on removing “gang-members and criminal cartels,” he blamed Clinton for promoting a “war on police.” He did not mention the accusations of police brutality by minorities who feel that they are disproportionately targeted.
It’s not the first time Trump has made a direct appeal to black voters — overtures first appeared in scripted speeches in the late summer.
He’s struggled to gain traction with minority voters in general in polls — he won just 20 percent of the nonwhite vote in a recent CNN/ORC poll, 25 percent of nonwhite voters in Quinnipiac University’s recent poll, and 17 percent in the recent Fox News poll.
Black voters were an important voting block for Barack Obama when he upset John McClain in North Carolina in 2008.
Do you just love how the writer for The Hill got in those subtle digs at the Republican Candidate through using the words “scripted speeches” repeatedly?
No biased reporting there.
But, I digress…
In a SurveyUSA Poll last September, in which 25% of Black Americans were polled, they stated that they would vote for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Ever since President Barack Hussein Obama got into office, all I have heard from him is the Rhetoric of Racial Division and Class Warfare.
It reminds me of all the historical conflicts which I used to read about, during the course in college which I took, titled “The Rhetoric of Social Protest“.
Karl Marx knew long ago that all you needed to do to touch the heart of the common man was to convince him of a shared struggle.
Vladimir Lenin took this a step further, by using the concept of a shared struggle to convince the Bolsheviks to help him overthrow the Czar of Russia and murder him and his family during the Russian Revolution.
Forgive me for stating the obvious, but fiery rhetoric spoken by a national leader has consequences.
President Barack Hussein Obama is as responsible for what has happened to Race Relations in America, as any thug wannabe in any city.
However, he is not alone in his responsibility.
Every race-baiter, local & national, who have fanned the flames of racial hatred, has the blood of any innocent person, police and civilians alike, slain in the name of Racial Division.
Do you remember when one half of the “Justice Brothers”, the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, led a march in New York City, capitalizing on the deaths of two of Michael Brown and Earl Garner?
During the march, the protesters chanted
What do we want? Dead Cops!
Somehow, America’s Professional Race-Baiters, from the Community Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, on down, twisted the facts to make it America’s Law Enforcement Officers’ Fault that two thugs got themselves killed in altercations with police officers.
How messed up is that?
Whatever happened to personal responsibility?
What has caused this lack of personal morals, ethics, and responsibility, not only in Ferguson and New York City, but also in Oakland, Memphis, Temple University, and other racial hot spots across our nation?
I think I know.
Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.
Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.
First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.
It also helped to cement in stone, minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.
The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.
A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.
What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.
It had the opposite effect
The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.
Uncle Sugar became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.
A few years ago, I worked at our county’s State Employment Center Office.
While at the Employment Office, I was able to observe Americans, both Black and White, down on their luck, struggling to find work and survive in this economy. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of “unemployed ” who came to this particular office were Black.
I saw Black American Families whose existence living on the Government Dole, had become generational.
It is these people whom Obama and the Democrats have hypnotized into believing that Uncle Sugar loves them, and is their only solution to surviving a stifling existence.
They are so, so wrong.
The strength and vitality of America does not come from the benevolence of a Nanny-state Federal Government.
As the greatest American President of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan said:
The nine words you never want to hear are: I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.
Being enslaved to the Government Dole steals one’s ambition. It takes away any impetus or desire to create a better life for yourself and your family, to challenge yourself to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and pursue the American Dream. It makes you reliant on a politically motivated spider’s web full of government bureaucrats who view you and your family as job security.
I watched American citizens trapped in this web of government bureaucracy, so numbed of any initiative that they once had, that they seemed offended that they actually had to prove that they inquired about three jobs that week in order to keep their “benefits”. Others seemed puzzled that they had to search through the state data base and pick out a job that they wanted to talk to an interviewer about receiving a referral to, and weren’t just simply handed a job when they walked through the door.
Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, these people I saw, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.
Under the reigh of King Barack The First, the results of LBJ’s “Great Society” have been the lead story in every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.
Donald J. Trump, as I have written before, despite how the Main Stream Media and their masters, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, are trying to portray him, is a man who cares about Americans,, regardless of our age, ethnicity, or societal status.
Trump genuinely wants to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Clinton and the Democrats want to keep Americans under their thumb and on the Government Dole.
Until He Comes,
