Trump believes in Eugenics/Superior Genes

Last edited Wed Sep 13, 2017, 09:52 AM - Edit history (1)

This may be common knowledge in the DU, but I haven't seen anything regarding this issue.

While many people, including myself, are always wondering whether Trump's racist acts are to appease his base, or he's personally a racist, I think this video confirms the latter.

In the video, Trump says he does not believe all men are created equal, he's proud of his "German blood", believes in innate genetic superiority, and confirms the biographers statement that he was raised
to believe in at least certain aspects of eugenics.

As usual, he speaks vaguely without mentioning groups with either greater or lesser genetic ability.

But that's just him being his typical douchebag self who likes to screw with people. At this point, its very easy to connect the dots, starting with this video, moving to his birther movement, and now doing everything he can to delegitimize a black man's presidency by reversing all his actions.

What frustrates me is that this most concerning of issues was never addressed by the mass media. Ever.

The first question in the first debate should have been "do you believe all men are created equal?" because he does not, with ideally a follow-up question or 3.

What genetic talent does Trump have? The gene for going bankrupt? The gene for lying and conning people into believing your BS?

He doesn't even know what a gene is.

How does he explain his retarded sons?

He's half Scottish.Is that the dumb side or the lunatic side?

When was malignant narcissism deemed a genetic success? I'd rate his genes slightly less favorable than Charles Manson's, who had discernable music talent.

He keeps saying he has the "best words". That's a stupid second grade level description. Same for "big brain". Dillweed.

18. He's been saying this shit for years. His words and actions (and his father's) have been consistently racist.

The media didn't call him out on his mob ties, why call him out on his racial beliefs? I wonder if the mainstream media realizes just how many centrists like myself no longer trust them. My confidence has been so badly shaken, I rarely watch network or cable news anymore. Was avid CBS This morning viewer, can't stand just looking at these people anymore, let alone listening to them. "America, where real journalism goes to die".

19. Interesting that most of the people who claim this are so wildly unattractive.

I guess their delusion starts when they look in the mirror and see themselves as superior in any way, and goes on from there.

not between races, but among races? some people are smarter than others. some are taller, some are stocky. of course trump's statements have an implication but let's avoid a knee-jerk reaction that rejects any similar opinion.

32. When Jefferson penned "all men are created equal,"

he meant it in the legal sense, not biological.

I could never become like Michael Jordan, even if I were raised in an identical environment and had his exact training. Same with other great talent such as Wolfgang Mozart and Albert Einstein.

Regardless of our abilities (or lack thereof), even if there are genetic differences we are all entitled to equal human rights.

34. Evolution has no concept of "superior" genes, only genes that are more "fit" for one's environment.

Genes for tallness aren't any more "superior" than genes for average or smaller height.

36. What you list are simply imaginary values of worth rather than more efficient genes.

"some people are smarter than others. some are taller, some are stocky..."

What you list are simply imaginary cultural values of worth rather than inherently more efficient/effective (or "better" ) genes.

Knee jerk, indeed.

37. they are rough examples

 

do we not think that to some extent, being artistic or verbally or mathematically intelligent are *not* genetic. I don't even care enough to bother arguing nature versus nurture in terms of the influence they have on an individual - i'm simply stating the traits are there.

24. So why wasn't this shown all over the media starting back in 2008? They every rally he has

 

from beginning to nasty end?

Intelligence is at least 70% relative to your environment. I would like to give him a batch of cement and some bricks and see if he can build a house with his bare hands and few simple masonry tools like my grandfather.

I would like to see him survive in a village deep in the Amazon without running water.

Take most people out of their native environment and take away all the resources they are used to have at their disposal. Start there.

30. Long known about this...

He is a throwback to White Nationalism of the 1920's when such things were common.

The hypocrisy is that while he thinks his German heritage makes him superior, Germany as a country and people all uniformly despise and reject Trump.

41. Well....

Evolution is exactly the result of superior genes.

That said what might be superior in one circumstance may not be in another. I don't think there is any doubt that there are superior genes. That does not mean Trump has them.

For example when it comes to brain power Steven hawking clearly has superior genes but when it comes to general health he definitely does not.

Equal is an illusion. There is no equal.

Working to ensure everyone is treated equally as far as justice or opportunity is not the same as people actually being equal.
