Trump apparently gave a pretty good speech at a black church in Detroit yesterday. Both Clinton and Trump were invited to speak and only Trump showed up. Part of Trump’s speech was posted in an American Thinker article:
For centuries the African American church has been the conscience of our country. It’s from the pews and pulpits and Christian teachings of black churches all across this land that the civil rights movement lifted its soul and lifted up the soul of the nation. It’s from these pews that our nation has been inspired toward a better moral character, a deeper concern for mankind, and a spirit of charity and unity that binds us all together.
The African American faith community has been one [of] God’s greatest gifts to America and to its people. There is perhaps no action our leaders can take that would do more to heal our country and support our people than to provide a greater platform to the black churches and churchgoers. You do right everyday by your community and your families. You raise children in the light of God. I will always support your church and defend your right to worship.
This is boilerplate “kiss the baby” kind of political stuff. But it’s a departure from claiming that Ted Cruz’s father helped assassinated JFK. It’s the crazy man looking sane, even presidential, which we’ve all been hoping he’d do (and make it real, not just be a prop).
Well, I’m certainly convinced the man can read someone else’s speech. I’ll give him that. And he did show up in a territory one would think politically hostile to him.
Curious, but expected, is the top post by a wanker at America Thinker who, instead of snatching victory from the jaws of victory, snags the petty small-mindedness of yet another embittered Trumpkin. andrewfalcon writes:
Continue to make your idiotic statement that “Trump is not conservative.” We never said he was, and so what if he isn’t. I haven’t seen any evidence that anyone “conservative” has accomplished anything that’s slowed down the leftward lurch in this country that really began accelerating 25 years ago, when guess who showed up on the national scene? That’s right: the Clintons. And now, here they are again, trying for another lease on the WH.
Continue to make your idiotic statement that “Trump is the only candidate who ran in the GOP primary that would lose to Clinton.” No. Trump is the only candidate who has even a smidgen of a chance to withstand the blow torch that the media, DNC, and Clinton machine are ready, willing, and able to throw in the direction of any GOP candidate. Everyone of the other 16 would have been starting the slow fade by now. For details, see Dole, Robert; McCain, John, and Romney, Mitt. Bush 43 lucked out and didn’t run against a Clinton or 0bama. That’s the reason he won 2 squeakers, not that he had any better goods than the other 3.
Continue to make your idiotic statement that “Trump is nothing but a crude loudmouth who only made it because his daddy gave him an inheritance; he’s nothing but an orange baboon.” Blah! Blah! Blah!
You can go right on making your idiotic statements, but please don’t continue to think you’re fooling anyone that your protestations are in any way related to wanting a change from the status quo. That you’re just so pure of heart that you couldn’t possibly consider voting for someone who is so vulgar as Donald Trump. Please, enough of the vapors and clutching at pearls. Admit it, you want Clinton. Join the handful who come around here and freely admit they’re Democrats who want nothing more than the opportunity to throw a t u r d in the punchbowl. You gain nothing from continuing to wail for that mythical “conservative” superman who should rise up from who knows where so Trump can be kicked to the curb. We have no more use for your idiocy than we do for the self-proclaimed marxocrats. At least they’re being honest about who they are. #NeverTrump, you’ve been outed for the frauds you are.
Is the point to beat Hillary or to mock, berate, and otherwise abuse people who have very good reason to question Trump’s fitness for high office? That was a rhetorical question. Don’t answer it.
And then listen to the rest of the lunatic Trump supporters who can’t wait to put the capital “V” on vindictive:
Of course. They don’t care who wins or loses as long as they get to keep the cushey government gig. We used to execute traitors.
One decent person, in response to the insane andrewfalcon, tries to talk sense to this ferocious zealot:
Trump’s Finest Hour. Yours – not so much. He is out building bridges now. You are still bleating old war cries and gloating. Put away the sword and join Trump in adopting a humble and prayerful attitude. Otherwise you undo the goodwill he is fostering now.
His reward for talking sense? The_Heretic70 answers:
Are you stupid? Or just whiny?
Although Hillary is certainly corrupt and the far Left is a nasty bunch of people, it is arguable that the rank-and-file supporters of Hillary (or at least those who will vote “D” in the presidential race) are much more decent people than the Trump supporters. One ought to have a healthy amount of trepidation regarding empowering either camp with the presidency, but especially the fascistic Trump forces.
