The Sexism and Racism of Donald Trump



If any of you still doubt that Trump is a better choice than Clinton, just think about this:  The media always support the worse candidate. They've been doing it at least since I started paying attention, when they got all giddy about JFK and clearly urged everybody to support him instead of Nixon. And it's been the same ever since. Right now, the press is using maybe half its energy to pat Bernie on the head, because he'd be an even worse President than Hillary. But the rest of its energy it's using not so much to support Hillary directly, because what could they say about her that isn't either bad or a fabrication? So they mainly just don't say anything about her at all, and trash Trump instead. I think it's backfiring, because a lot of what they say about Trump is intended to make voters dislike him, but voters have kind of caught on over the years that candidates accused of being racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. are actually usually the best choice.

They're expending a lot of energy telling us how foreign leaders don't like Trump, for example. Most Americans think that's actually a good thing. But the media's intentions are clear.

A symbol of all this is the New York Times. Now, every day I go to http://justnotsaid.blogspot.com to see what John Craig has come up with. And this is what I found yesterday:

All the propaganda that's fit to print

Yesterday the New York Times came out with a top-of-the-front-page, several columns wide article titled, Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private.

The article details howTrump suggested one woman wear a bathing suit at a pool party. And he kissed another one full on the lips (when he was expected to kiss her on the cheek). To another, he said, "You like the candy," suggesting that she had put on too much weight.

The Times' hypocrisy never fails to amaze. Bill Clinton has a long history of rape and sexual assault. He never completed his degree at Oxford because he was asked to leave because he had sexually assaulted Eileen Wellstone. Juanita Broaddrick said he raped her. And there were many other women who accused him of unwanted groping. Yet somehow those accusations never made it to the front page of the Times.

But if Donald Trump made comments about a woman's appearance, that's worthy of a front page article.

Barack Obama appears to have had men on his staff who were hired in part to have sex with him. The Times doesn't consider this newsworthy.

But if Trump passed judgment on the "hotness" of contestants at the Miss Universe contest, that merits a front page article.

Hillary Clinton is pretty obviously a lesbian; Gennifer Flowers once said that Bill Clinton told her, "Hillary has eaten more pussy than I have." Hillary now has an employee, Huma Abedin, who appears to be her lover. Yet that is a story the Times doesn't consider worth investigating.

But if Donald Trump used "dismissive nicknames" like "hon" or "dear" to various women, that's cause to reconsider his Presidential potential.

How can anyone take this newspaper seriously?

And, this morning, John followed up with:

"The New York Times' empty Trump 'expose'"

Turns out that of the little the Times was able to come up with about Trump's treatment of women, at least part of it wasn't even true. The relevant excerpt from the NY Post article:

It didn’t take long at all for that New York Times front-page “exposé” of Donald Trump’s treatment of women to start falling apart.

The Sunday article opened with a 25-year-old anecdote about Rowanne Brewer Lane. By Monday, she was ripping the Times for distorting what she’d said.

“He never made me feel like I was being demeaned in any way,” Lane told Fox News. “He never offended me in any way. He was very gracious.”

Yet the Times’ Michael Barbaro and Megan Twohey described the former model’s first meeting with Trump, during which he offered her the use of a swimsuit at his Florida estate, as “debasing” — a word she never used — and somehow a window on his “private treatment” of women.

Lane says the Times reporters told her “several times . . . that it would not be a hit piece.” But that’s exactly what it was.

A microscopic search of Trump’s private life over decades revealed that he likes beautiful women. Not much to set against his strong record of promoting women in an industry that’s still male-dominated….


By the way, the Times’ star witness, the “debased” Rowanne Brewer Lane? She says she’s voting for Trump.

Bonus graphic: A perfect graphic meme states an obvious truth in an unambiguous manner. This one qualfies, I believe, as perfect:

Go there to read about where it came from.

Quibcag: Not directly related, but does illustrate the political correctness of the media. I found the stomping girl somewhere on the net, but I had to photoshop the face in. It belongs to Gintoki of Gin Tama (銀魂 Gintama, lit. "Silver Soul"). And for those of you who got your education after Orwell was thrown out of school curricula, I have substituted "Birkenstock" for "boot" in the original Orwell quote, to emphasize the hippie-hipsterness of our current leftist leaders.

  1. I hated the NY Times. I only bought the NY Post and sometimes the NY Daily News.
