So Disturbing: ‘Racialists’ are cheered by Trump’s latest strategy

Jared Taylor hits play, and the first Donald Trump ad of the general election unfolds across his breakfast table. Syrian refugees streaming across a border. Hordes of immigrants, crowded onto trains.

Taylor, one of America’s foremost “racialists,” is impressed and relieved. “That’s a powerful appeal,” he said. “If he can just stick to that, he is in very good shape.”

From his Fairfax County home, Taylor has edited the white nationalist magazine American Renaissance and organized racialist conferences under the “AmRen” banner. He said that Trump should “concentrate on his natural constituency, which is white people,” suggesting that winning 65 percent of the white vote would overwhelm any Democratic gains with minorities.

When Trump made Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon his campaign’s chief executive last week, Taylor found reasons to celebrate. It was the latest sign for white nationalists, once dismissed as fringe, that their worldview was gaining popularity and that the old Republican Party was coming to an end.

Not that I didn't know, but for me this did it. I dashed over to HRC's site and made a $27 dollar donation. And I think it was damned smart of the campaign to put that number up as a contribution amount. It's a nod to Bernie supporters and it lets the campaign know that we're on board.

1. While some Trump defenders insist that he's not racist

he definitely appeals to the white supremacists. It's no coincidence!

I believe Trump is a bigot anyway, no matter what his supporters argue. There certainly are people who openly incite more hatred than Drumpf, but he is a divider not a "uniter," except to unite intolerant individuals and groups.
