America’s history is a tapestry of innumerable threads, many of them triumphant and inspiring that we should be deeply proud of, but Trump goes out of his way to weave together two of the most shameful strands.

One is the racism and nativism that go back to the 18th century, to the Philadelphia speaker who in 1844 denounced Irish immigrants as “scum unloaded on American wharves” and helped provoke anti-Catholic riots, to the waves of hysteria against African-Americans, Italians, Chinese, Jews, Japanese-Americans, Latinos and other immigrants. There is another strain of American hospitality highlighted by the Statue of Liberty and the admission of hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese refugees beginning in the 1970s, but the nativism is real — it’s why Trump’s family, alarmed by anti-German bigotry, pretended to be Swedish.

Josh, this is a crazy world. Is Trump racist? I don't know. He certainly appears to be a narcissist, and the opinions of a narcissist (being self-centered and shallow) are not something I care to obsess about. He does whatever is best for him and what best feeds his delusion of grandeur. I don't care what he thinks about race. It's probably shallow and self-centered.

It's kind of boring. I know he's the leader of the free-world, but, the more people attack Trump the more riled up his base becomes, the more rabid and insane the left becomes, and the folks on both sides just dig their heels in deeper.

This has been the ultimate corollary to the breach of "don't feed the trolls"

Interesting. You should do a tedtalk. On the consequences of escalation.

This week's over-exaggerated circus of Trump's "racism" is brought to you by the main stream leftists media who don't want you to think about Bill Clinton's 27 trips to Epstein's Pedo-Island...

“Yesterday the president pinched out a steaming pile of tweets against freshman Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Oman of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachuttes and Rashida Tlaib on Michigan — known in DC as ‘The Squad,'” Of course Trump does not like ‘The Squad’ — he’s the leader of the rival gang, ‘The Klan,'”

 Trump  opposes genocide, free and unfettered abortion is extremely racist.

 Many people do not approve of abortion and have worked to change the law.   This does not make pro-lifers racist, nor does it make president trump  and the Republican Party , racists for supporting the  pro-life  movement .

The Democrats on the other hand  promote and encourage the genocide of the poor and underprivileged  United States citizens.   

 Trump pointing out the hypocrisy of the  ultra left wing Democratic Party is fair game.

Catholic Don Johnson's new Documentary A Compromised Faith

Many find it shocking that white conservative evangelicals have supported Donald Trump so strongly, especially considering his almost complete lack of the traditional “family values” they claim to esteem. However, the fact is that Donald Trump espouses and exemplifies at least one principle that this segment of American Christianity has long prioritized over the teachings of Jesus: white supremacy. This is that story.

That is what this film is about.

It turns out that racism is nothing new to the religious right. Indeed, it is foundational to their history. In A Compromised Faith, we will explore that story, documenting the development of the current white conservative political culture in this country, from the 1950s to today. Contrary to the popular myth that white conservative Christians flocked into the political realm to combat abortion and sexual immorality, the truth is that they were only finally mobilized as a reaction to the civil rights movement.

For example, we will look at how the Brown v Board of Education ruling desegregating schools led directly to the battle over Supreme Court justices we see today.  

In doing so we will look at the motives behind this culture of oppression, and examine how the church got so far from the teachings of its founder. This will include looking at the theology that undergirded this racism, with its roots in a certain strain of medieval philosophy and the Protestant Reformation.

It’s not all negative, though, as well will also tell the story of movements within American Christianity that aim to reform the Church and bring it more in line with the gospels, and examine whether they have a legitimate chance of success.

 I've come to realize that it is pretty much a joke that the so-called conservative politicians mobilized in order to combat abortion and immorality. It's just opportunism. And anyone who dehumanizes anyone, say undocumented immigrants--- calling them illegals like some nonhuman entities,  discredits the claim that they are pro-life. This is a problem plaguing society as I see it… Nothing will change if people persist in uncharity, racism, lack of sympathy towards the least who are alive. It's easy to sympathize with babies actually, but babies grow up…

Anyway, that said, reacting against Trump unconstructively is just the pendulum swinging in the opposite direction… Forget politics, look to Christ, follow him and the Church and then the Holy Spirit will guide you in the right direction… That is the secret to any path of life even politics insomuch that politics is necessary.

And surprisingly enough, Donald Trump as whatever he in his heart and mind, is a human being as well and needs prayers. That's not an excuse for his behavior and rhetoric. I don't know if he's really sincerely racist or whatnot but whining about it is pretty much as useless as sending out stupid tweets.
