In response to ‘A stunning defeat’ (Nov. 10 issue 212)
I believe you (Stampp Corbin) are wrong, this is more a stunning victory for Mr. Trump. For you to blatantly and in a transparently racist rhetoric, lay your predominant blame with “angry white conservative voters, who also live among (amongst) us”, is nothing but self-delusion. Mr. Trump gained amongst black American votes as compared to Mitt Romney, as he did with Hispanic American votes. But much more than this, Hillary Clinton self-destructed by her lies, corruption, pay to play schemes, her accurately perceived unworthiness to be trusted, Benghazi’s fiasco, where men were brutally raped, beaten and murdered while Obama slept and she did nothing. Like Susan Sarandon stated, “I do not vote with my vagina” and as a gay man, who is a Berkeley graduate, as a Navy/Marine Corps veteran, I do not vote for criminals simply because I am gay and a registered Democrat.
Mr. Trump did not tap into “white anger” he resonated with disgruntled Americans of all color, so quit your divisive remarks and pandering to falsely perceived racism behind his win. It should not alarm you that “college educated white (again your racist tones at work) voters went for Trump”.
Thinking and educated Americans of all color and race did. Your ridiculous comments about him being a “misogynist and a racist” are idiotic and unfounded. Publish your absolute evidence to substantiate such a boldly false statement!
Clinton’s defeat shows that Americans did not trust her, and I suppose WikiLeaks lied too, correct? They canned Deborah Wasserman Schultz for her corrupt activities tied into undermining Bernie Sanders and Donna Brazile was fired by CNN for fraudulently feeding Mrs. Clinton questions prior to the debate!
You call Mr. Trump “a boorish, white man (here is your racism surfacing transparently, yet again!) who makes racist, misogynistic and anti-immigrant comments”. Let me correct your misinformation here, first he is not anti-immigrant”, he is anti-illegal lawbreaking felons, who knowingly break this country’s federal laws, to gain for themselves an unfair advantage over those pursuing to follow the lawful route to become legal immigrants, lo entiendes? It just happens to be the undeniable truth that 99 percent of illegals/aka lawbreaking felons are from Mexico!
Mr. Trump has an extensive track record of hiring many women for management and executive positions and I am certain that every one of them would disagree with you! Hardly a “misogynist” as you so ignorantly label him.
Again you show your distinctly racist inclinations by writing: “Clinton’s defeat indicates that White America (again your racism and ignorance are evidenced) has bonded together across social and economic lines to say… we are still here, in control, and still run the show”. For someone of your alleged education and open minded thinking, this is so disgusting and I am “stunned” by your appalling rhetoric.
The “permanent divide in America, whites (here you go again with your obvious racism) trying to go back to a time “, is laughably insulting to our intelligence, and to yours as well!
I ask you a pointed question, what did Obama really do for you, as a black American and what did Hillary do for you, or would she have done for you, in your thinking?
Quit fearmongering, quit being a “doomsday prophet,” quit lynching Trump and burning white hot crosses on his lawn! He is not the evil enemy you portray him as.
Oh and by the way, I am half Hispanic and half white, a registered Democrat and a man with a conscience, which is why having a felon such as Hillary Clinton for a Democratic candidate, not only offended me morally, but pushed me to vote for Donald Trump! I blame the DNC, Wasserman Schultz, Donna Brazile and all their cronies who had their claws in many fraudulent and unethical activities! But most of all I blame Hillary Clinton!
So please drop your racist rhetoric and blame. So suck it up and pray that Mr. Trump does well for all of us, united!
