The TeaPublicans are now talking themselves into accepting a Donald Trump nomination for the presidency of the United States. These are the people who support Trump and think he'd make a great president. They are beyond disgusting.
Trump supporters are what any civilized society hopes to overcome and leave behind. But they will drag this country back to its darkest days of racism, anti-semitism, and bigotry.
Here are what Donald Trump's supporters had to say about Dana Milbank, a journalist at the Washington Post.
"Trump may well be a bigot and a racist, but one thing is certain: The only thing missing from your photo is a [vulgar word for penis' in your mouth, gay bastard."
“Let’s not mince words, Milbank is an anti-white parasite and a bigoted kike supremacist.”
Various Trump defenders derided Muslims as “Muzzies” and “Mo-slimes.” One reader informed me that “Muslims worship a man who f----- a 9-year-old.” They spoke of the “sociopath Hussein” — President Obama — and his “Islamic butt buddies.” But mostly they zeroed in on my Judaism, which they discovered from Internet searches. “You are a kike communist,” one informed me. Another called my girlfriend, who has a common Jewish surname, a “Gross Jewess.” Still another sent me a Nazi-style cartoon of a big-nosed Jewish man with a skull cap and bad teeth.
“Jews are 2 percent of the population, but 60 percent of the people calling whites ‘racist.’ Once you notice it, you can’t unsee it.”
My Post colleagues Carol Leonnig and David Nakamura and others have documented the racial violence at Trump rallies, including the video of Trump’s personal bodyguard punching an immigration demonstrator in the head. At a Trump event in Las Vegas week, a Black Lives Matter demonstrator was dragged from the rally as Trump supporters shouted at him: “Kick his ass!” “Shoot him!” “Bitch!” and “Sieg heil!” As one black protester was being removed by security guards, one of those in the crowdshouted: “Light the motherf---er on fire.” As another protester was dragged away, a man screamed: “He’s a Muslim guy!”
"I write this not out of any hope of changing the minds of Trump-backers, nor to reinforce the prevailing view among liberals that Trump has unleashed ugliness. I write this to conservatives of conscience: Is this what you want conservatism, the Republican Party and America to be?"
Donald Trump isn't giving a "middle finger" to the electoral process" or to the GOP establishment. Donald Trump is giving a big EFF YOU! to the American flag and what it stands for. He and his supporters are, in effect, spitting on it and defiling it. His supporters, those who cheer him on, are an American nightmare.
