Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 31, 2020

Trump was fresh from refusing to attend John Lewis's memorial events, and tweeting a supporter yelling "White power!", and passing along videos of Black people assaulting White people, and playing down police violence against African Americans, and defending Confederate monuments and place names, and supporting right-wing groups carrying Confederate flags as they marched on state capitals, and observing that "people love" the Confederate flag. Jefferson Davis always wanted to see a Confederate battle flag raised over the White House. At least in spirit, he has finally gotten his wish. In Trump's approach to politics, all is flexible, all is negotiable, except the driving instinct of us vs. them. And it is not just a coincidence that the us is overwhelmingly White. Trump's most consistent, defining goal has been the preservation of white supremacy against growing diversity. As we now see fully, he holds out the promise of a suburban, segregated promised land.

The GOP has been proud and protective of their White Supremacists for years.

To deny that is to own it. It has not been, what you would call 'under the cloak of invisibility', all these years.

Perhaps time for a rerun...

Trump's premeditated racism is central to his 2020 strategy (July 2019)

...It might seem like improvisational madness when President Trump tells American citizens in Congress to "go back" where they came from, but those close to Trump say there's a lot of calculation behind his race-baiting.

Why it matters: It's central to his 2020 strategy, they say. Trump's associates predict more, not less, of the race-baiting madness....
