It was big news over the weekend when Trump did not immediately disavow David Duke and the Klan on CNN, as well it should have been. He’s done many interviews since then and has proceeded to say all of the right things(wink, wink). It seems to me though, that the TV journalists continue to miss the mark with their lines of questioning. Maybe I’ve missed it but here are some questions I would ask Trump.
What is it about you and the campaign that you’re running, that is attracting the white power and white supremacist people to it? Is it possible that your stances on illegal immigration and on Muslims coming into this country are what is attracting the haters to you?
I’ve been watching the various incidents that keep happening at Trump rallies and it’s getting downright ugly. There’s a mob mentality there that is dangerously reminiscent of Nazi Germany. Right now it’s an undercurrent but if this is allowed to grow, well, look out, America. Think I’m overreacting? It’s been well documented but not that widely reported. I don’t think the average American would even be aware that this is happening. I wonder if the average American is even aware of the level of racism that still exists in this country. I’m not talking about Chris Rock and Hollywood racism. It’s hard to care that much about that when there is genuine, old fashioned, violent racism still out there.
