Elijah Cummings Called Baltimore ‘Drug Infested Area’ in 1999

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

So does this mean Elijah Cummings(Delusional-MD)is a racist?

I have a question for Comrade Cummings where is all of the federal taxpayers money go that Baltimore got?

‘A lot of the drugs we’re talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children’

Embattled Rep. Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) described his community of Baltimore as a “drug infested area” in a video from a 1999 congressional hearing.

“This morning, I left my community of Baltimore, a drug infested area, where a lot of the drugs we’re talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” Cummings said. “The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up now walking around like zombies. This is only 40 miles away from here.”

President Trump criticized both the city of Baltimore and Cummings in multiple tweets over the past week.  He calledRep. Cummings a “brutal bully”  and claimed the representative was “screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous.”

“Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,” he continued.

After the initial criticism, he continued to double down. “Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States,” he wrote on Twitter. “No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”

Members of the media and the Democratic Party condemnedTrump’s criticism of Baltimore and Cummings. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) called the president “disgusting and racist” and presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Ca.) called the criticism “disgraceful,” and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Ca.) defended Cummings.

In 2017, Trump also generated controversy when he referred to the state of New Hampshire as a “drug-infested den.” At the time, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said that it was “disappointing” that the president’s “mischaracterization of this epidemic ignores the great things this state has to offer.”

 

 

 

Breaking Report: Osama bin Laden’s Son and Heir Is Dead

H/T Western Journal.

Hamza bin Laden is now barking in the fires of Hell with dear old dad Osama.             

The son of former al-Qaida leader and 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden is dead, according to intelligence obtained by American authorities, three U.S. officials told NBC News.

“The officials would not provide details of where or when Hamza bin Laden died or if the U.S. played a role in his death,” NBC reported Wednesday afternoon.

“It is unclear if the U.S. has confirmed his death,” the report said.

Hamza bin Laden is believed to have been roughly 30 years of age.

His “last known public statement was released by al Qaeda’s media arm in 2018,” NBC reported.

“In that, he threatened Saudi Arabia and called on the people of the Arabian peninsula to revolt,” it said.

The U.S. State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program said earlier this year it would be offering a $1 million “for information on” the younger bin Laden.

“Hamza is son of Osama bin Laden and has threatened attacks against the United States and allies,” the State Department said.

Hamza’s father was killed in a 2011 Navy SEAL raid of the compound where he was living in Pakistan.

Osama bin Laden, of course, is infamous for planning the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Almost 3,000 people were killed as a direct result of the 9/11 attacks, and thousands more were injured.

A global manhunt was launched to find bin Laden, eventually resulting in his death.

As National Review noted, “Hamza traveled with his father to Afghanistan in 1996 and appeared regularly in al Qaeda propaganda videos.”

“Hamza was not present in the compound when the raid was conducted, but documents found on the scene indicate Osama was grooming his son for a leadership role in al Qaeda,” the outlet added.

This is a breaking story and is subject to revision as new facts come out. 

Gabbard: Voters Got No Answer From Harris on Criminal Justice Record

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard(Delusional-HI)opened a giant can of whoop-ass on Kamala Harris(Delusional-CA).       

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) said on Thursday that voters got no answers from Senator Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on her record as a prosecutor and attorney general of California.

“I got no answers, but more importantly the American people, voters, got no answers.” Gabbard told MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian, “Senator Harris said very clearly on the debate stage last night that she’s proud of her record, yet, she failed to answer these very pointed questions about these parts of her record where when she was in a position of power and responsibility where she could have been a champion of the people, instead she was the exact opposite. She was perpetuating the worst part of our criminal justice system that disproportionately impacts our black and brown brothers and sisters, poor people in California.”

Gabbard slammed Harris during the Wednesday night Democratic debate over her criminal justice record as attorney general of California.

“She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” Gabbard said at the debate, echoing findings from a Free Beacon report. “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California, and she fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.”

Gabbard had previously hit Harris for what she said was a false accusation of racism towards former vice president Joe Biden. Gabbard has also said that Harris was not qualified to be president because she did not have the foreign policy experience or the temperament for the job. Harris has calledGabbard an apologist for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and dismissed her as someone polling at “zero or one percent.”

 

         

Biden: Economy ‘Collapsing’ Because of Trump

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Only in the world of Slow Joe, The Gaff Machine Biden could an economy this vibrant be called collapsing.

Unemployment is at its lowest in 50 years.

 

Former vice president Joe Biden told reporters on Thursday in Detroit that “the economy as well as the soul of this country” are collapsing because of President Donald Trump’s policies.

Biden’s comments came amid a defense of former president Barack Obama’s legacy, which many Democratic candidates attacked at the Wednesday primary debate.

“The world has changed,” Biden said. “President Trump has turned it upside down economically. People are hurting badly. There’s no response. We faced a different problem ten years ago when the economy collapsed because of Republican policies. Now we face a problem that the economy, as well as the soul of this country, is collapsing because of this presidency.”

Although the economy has continued to grow under Trump, 2020 Democrats have been slow to admit it. Sens. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) all have said in the past few months that the economy is either in peril or already collapsing. “Something is broken in our economy,” South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg said in March.

At the same time, however, unemployment reached 3.8 percent in March, a 50-year low. Unemployment is at record lows for African Americans and Hispanics under Trump. The labor force participation rate is at 63.2 percent. Additionally, consumer confidence hit an 18-year high in September and, after a slight decline, rebounded in February.

Manufacturing jobs under Trump are also growing at a rate 714 percent greater than under Obama.

In July, Warren wrote a Medium post saying these signs of a strong economy warn of coming doom.

“When I look at the economy today, I see a lot to worry about again,” Warren wrote. “I see a manufacturing sector in recession. I see a precarious economy that is built on debt—both household debt and corporate debt—and that is vulnerable to shocks. And I see a number of serious shocks on the horizon that could cause our economy’s shaky foundation to crumble.”

 

 

Analysis: Dem Candidates Call For More Than $200 Trillion in Spending

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

I guess the DemocRats money trees must be located by their unicorn pens.

Most have at least $1 trillion of proposals.

Democratic candidates for the 2020 nomination have promised more than $210 trillion in new spending across the field, analysis by the Washington Free Beacon shows.

Of the 26 declared candidates—including Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) who dropped out earlier this month—most have put enormous new government programs front and center in their campaigns. Totaling up these proposals gives taxpaying voters a sense of the budget priorities of the average Democratic candidate.

That overall figure is an undercount, as it is based only on proposals for which the Free Beacon could identify actual spending estimates. The true figure is much larger. For example, Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) Medicare for All proposal is included, while Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D., Calif.) is not, because no cost assessment for the latter could be identified.

Candidates will continue to roll out proposals in the months ahead, although the field is likely to winnow in that time as well.

Of the $210 trillion, the plurality—$94 trillion—is the estimated cost of a Green New Deal, which a number of candidates have backed in some form or another. The remaining $116 trillion—roughly six times the United States’s annual Gross Domestic Product—is spread across a variety of policy proposals, from Andrew Yang’s Universal Basic Income to Marianne Williamson’s call for $200 to $500 billion in reparations for slavery.

The Free Beacon largely employed the candidates’ own cost estimates for their proposals. However, the analysis also cited a nonpartisan study showing Yang’s proposed $12,000 income for all Americans would cost at least $30 trillion over the next decade; Yang claims it would cost $1.8 trillion a year.

Many of the proposals are spread out over 10 years, such as Joe Biden’s $750 billion public option health care plan, Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) $2 trillion investment in green research and manufacturing, and former HUD Secretary Julian Castro’s $970 billion plan for affordable housing.

Although Yang’s proposal is one of the larger ones offered, Sanders is the top prospective spender. His Medicare for All plan is expected to run around $32 trillion over the next 10 years—estimates vary—but on top of that, a Sanders administration would add trillions more in infrastructure spending, universal free college, and an ill-defined job guarantee.

More mainstream Democrats like Biden, former representative John Delaney (D., Md.), and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) are big spenders as well. All three make it to the top five because of their promises to spend enormous sums of money combatting climate change: $4 trillion, $5 trillion, and $10 trillion, respectively.

Billionaire Tom Steyer ($2.25 trillion) and Washington governor Jay Inslee ($9 trillion, $3 trillion in public spending) have also proposed 13-figure climate change proposals.

Overhauling education is another popular policy proposal, with candidates like Castro seeking to spend trillions of dollars on it. For some, like Warren and Miramar, Fla., mayor Wayne Messam, that includes voiding all student debt, even though some plans to do so would disproportionately benefit the well-off.

Kamala Harris: Issue of Race Now a ‘National Security Issue’

H/T Western Journal.

Kamala Harris knows she is not gaining any traction in the DemocRat race so she keeps tossing out race to keep getting noticed and to stay afloat.

Just when we may have thought Kamala Harris‘ hammer-and-anvil approach to identity politics couldn’t get worse, she has proven us wrong.

“It is a fact Russia interfered in the election of the president of the United States,” the California senator said Friday.

But Harris, among the Democrats’ countless carousel of 2020 presidential hopefuls, was only getting started. Her speech wouldn’t reach its crescendo until she mentioned her favorite subject: skin color.

While speaking in Indianapolis at the National Urban League Conference, she asserted Russian operatives decided to divide America based on race.

The senator said they “started figuring out well, how can we get those people, the Americans, going at each other, losing confidence in the system?”

“You know the No. 1 thing that attracted heat? Race,” she said. “And so, through a misinformation campaign, they played off of and exposed America’s Achilles heel. …

“Well guess what? All of a sudden the issue of race has become not only a civil rights issue, [but also] a national security issue.”

 

 

Let there be no doubt, Harris is convinced that focusing on race and gender will carry her into the Oval Office. (Her ex-lover and former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown doesn’t think she has a prayer against President Donald Trump in 2020.)

While it’s one thing to claim Russia’s interference in the 2016 election is a national security issue, it’s an entirely different tale when you say the same thing about race. Then again, as RealClearPolitics reported, then-President Barack Obama downplayed the impact of outside interference impacting the 2016 election and said Trump should “stop whining” because “no serious person” thinks U.S. elections could be rigged.

Harris is becoming known for floating unconventional theories, such as when she told a radio show that the Colin Kaepernick controversy — involving the ex-NFL quarterback who protested during the national anthem — was due to Russian bots.

During Tuesday and Wednesday’s Democratic debates in Detroit, we can be sure Harris will bring up race. That’s how she curried favor in the previous showdown, when she insinuated former Vice President Joe Biden is racist, as USA Today reported.

Naturally, Harris’ supporters and undecided registered voters are catching on to her race-card rhetoric.

The California lawmaker has positioned herself as a legitimate 2020 contender and could surge in the polls later this week.

As is the case with the congresswomen comprising “the squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib — Harris will continue her confrontational and abrasive antics.

In turn, the Harris campaign and Democratic debates figure to include an altogether lower level of discourse. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.

 

 

 

 

NY Creates 30-Day Waiting Period for Firearms and Bans Bump Stocks

H/T AmmoLand.

This 30 day waiting period seems excessive and will most likely to be challenged in court.

Little Andy Cuomo is a little late with a bump stock ban.

Albany, New York –-(Ammoland.com)- New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a mandatory 30-day waiting period for a purchase of a gun when the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) doesn’t instantly approve the buyer.

“For too long gun violence has plagued communities across our nation and while the federal government turns a blind eye, New York continues leading the way forward to protect our families and our children,” Cuomo said in a statement at the bill’s signing.

Contrary to the name, NICS is not always instant.

When a gun dealer runs the background on the buyer of a firearm, the system will return one of three results. Approval means the buyer passed the background check. Denied says the purchaser failed the background check.

The third result, delayed, means that the FBI needs more time to complete the check. The delay could be for any number of reasons. One of the most common causes of a delay is because the buyer has a common name. Chris Johnson is a name that usually gets a person delayed.

Now gun buyers in the Empire State will face delays up to 30 days for the NICS shortcomings. Under the current law, dealers have to wait for three days before completing the sale of a firearm to a customer if the FBI still has not completed the background check.

Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris, D-Queens sponsored the bill. He believes that the new waiting period will save lives by keeping guns out of the hands of those that are ineligible to own firearms.

“Common sense gun safety reform will save lives, period. Stronger background checks will keep guns away from dangerous people,” Gianaris said at the signing ceremony.

Another of the bill’s sponsor, Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, D-Scarsdale, said that the FBI needs more time to complete background checks, and the current time frame is insufficient.

“This law will build on our already strong gun laws by ensuring that law enforcement has sufficient time to complete a background check without impinging on the rights of law-abiding citizens,” Paulin said of the new law.

Lawmakers claimed the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina in 2015 inspired them to pass the bill. A white supremacist entered the church and murdered nine parishioners in cold blood.

The members of the New York legislator falsely claim that the shooter was able to buy the gun used before the FBI completed his background check. They claim if there were a 30-day delay, the FBI would have prevented the murderer from getting a handgun.

The truth is the FBI approved the purchase of the gun even though the killer was a prohibited person. He had a conviction on a felony drug charge. An unnamed FBI examiner turned up the arrest, but FBI did not have a record of the conviction. If South Carolina had a law similar to New York’s new law, it would have not prevented the shooting.

Cuomo also signed into law a second bill that bans the possession, manufacture, transportation, shipment, and sale of any items that accelerates the firing rate of firearms, rifles or shotguns.

The bill mostly concentrates on bump stocks and comes on the hills of the federal bump stock ban. Multiple gun rights groups are challenging the federal ban in the courts. The ATF changed the definition of a machine gun to avoid a showdown in Congress.

The New York legislature is using the Las Vegas shooting as justification as to why this law is needed. The Sen. Luis Sepúlveda, D-Bronx goes as far as calling devices that accelerate the rate of fire as “military weapons.”

There is absolutely no need for military-grade weaponry on the streets nor homes of New York,” said Sepúlveda.

The new law is vague when it comes to devices other than bump stocks. It leaves binary triggers and even match grade triggers in legal limbo. If no clarity is given on those items it could make citizens of New York unwitting felons overnight.

Both new laws will go into effect in 45 days from the signing.

Federal Judge Took Democrats’ Russia Collusion Lawsuit Against The Trump Campaign To The Woodshed

H/T Town Hall.

Judge John Koeltl is a Clinton appointee and he ruled against DemocRats.

It’s another day of winning for the Trump White House. A federal judge just tossed the Democratic National Committee’s lawsuit alleging Russian interference in the 2016 election. It was a sore loser legal push. Some Russians might have met with Trump officials, which means there was a conspiracy. Nope. The report filed by ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller totally axed that narrative, noting that there was no evidence that any collusion occurred. With that, the report totally debunked most of the already unverified Trump dossier, which started this circus in the first place. The document was an opposition research project funded by the Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign, which hired Fusion GPS to get dirt on Trump. Fusion hired ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele to compile this file that was reportedly used as credible evidence to secure a FISA spy warrant against former Trump campaign official Carter Page. That’s a whole other off-ramp story along the massive highway that is the Russian collusion myth.

Back to the lawsuit, the judge was quite clear, there was no wrongdoing on behalf of the Trump campaign since they didn’t break any laws concerning obtaining the information from the Wikileaks dump. Those emails from John Podesta and the Clinton campaign aired out a lot of dirty laundry and made things quite awkward on the eve of their 2016 convention in Philadelphia. In short, the judge, a Clinton appointee, took a hatchet to the Democrats’ case, saying it was divorced from the facts (via Fox News):

A federal judge in frank terms Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) against key members of the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks over hacked DNC documents, saying they “did not participate in any wrongdoing in obtaining the materials in the first place” and therefore bore no legal liability for disseminating the information.

The ruling came as Democrats increasingly have sought to tie the Trump team to illegal activity in Russia, in spite of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings that the campaign in fact refused multiple offers by Russians to involve them in hacking and disinformation efforts.

The DNC asserted in court filings that the Trump team’s meetings “with persons connected to the Russian government during the time that the Russian GRU agents were stealing the DNC’s information” were “circumstantial evidence” that they were conspiring with the Russians to “steal and disseminate the DNC’s materials.”

Thet suit did not allege that the stolen materials were false or defamatory but rather sought to hold the Trump team and other defendants liable for the theft of the DNC’s information under various Virginia and federal statutes, including laws protecting trade secrets.

However, Judge John Koeltl, a Bill Clinton appointee sitting in the Southern District of New York, wrote in his 81-page opinion Tuesday that the DNC’s argument was “entirely divorced” from the facts.

The DNC first filed its suit in April 2018, and the defendants responded that the First Amendment legally protected the dissemination of stolen materials.

“In short, the DNC raises a number of connections and communications between the defendants and with people loosely connected to the Russian Federation, but at no point does yhe DNC allege any facts … to show that any of the defendants — other than the Russian Federation — participated in the theft of the DNC’s information,” Koeltl said.

“Nor does the DNC allege that the defendants ever agreed to help the Russian Federation steal the DNC’s documents,” he added.

The DNC claimed the defendants illegally compromised their trade secrets contained in some of the stolen documents — including donor lists and strategies. But, the judge said, any such claim to trade secrecy was lost when the documents became public in the first place, and in any event, the newsworthiness of the matter trumped the trade secrecy issue.

Oh, and it gets even more brutal, as Fox added that even if the Russians had provided the information from the hack directly to the Trump team, it would not be illegal since the campaign proper did not participate with the electronic intrusion.

Being a Racist Is Easy Today

H/T Town Hall.

The left is calling everyone a racist for everything.

The term racist has lost its meaning.

It is so bad Spartacus Booker said President Trump is worse than racist whatever that means.

Years ago, it was hard to be a racist. You had to be fitted for and spend money on a white gown and don a pointy hat. You celebrated racism by getting some burlap, wrapping it around a cross, setting it ablaze and dancing around it carrying torches. Sometimes, as did Lester Maddox, you had to buy axe handles for yourself and your supporters to wield to forcibly turn away black customers from your restaurant. Or, as in the case of Theophilus “Bull” Connor, you had to learn to direct fire hoses and vicious police attack dogs against civil rights demonstrators.

Younger racists, along with their parents, had to memorize poems for whenever a black student showed up for admission to their high school or college. For example, “Two, four, six, eight, we don’t want to integrate!” Of course, there were a host of racial slurs and epithets that could be hurled, with impunity, at any black person in your presence. In earlier times, you didn’t have to be sophisticated, but it took a bit of work, to be a racist.

Today, all that has changed. To be a racist today takes little effort. For example, one can sit back in his easy chair and declare that he’s for across-the-board tax cuts. That makes you a racist. If you don’t believe me, think back to 1994 when the Republican-led Congress pushed for a tax-cut measure. Former U.S. House of Representatives member Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., denouncing the Republicans’ plan before a Manhattan audience as a form of modern-day racism said: “It’s not ‘spic’ or ‘n—–‘ anymore. (Instead,) they say, ‘Let’s cut taxes.'” A few months later, he compared the GOP’s “Contract with America” to measures in Nazi Germany saying, “Hitler wasn’t even talking about doing these things.”

One can be labeled a racist through a set of “microaggressions” listed in “Diversity in the Classroom, UCLA Diversity & Faculty Development” from 2014.

Here are a few statements one should avoid: “You are a credit to your race.” “Wow! How did you become so good in math?” “There is only one race, the human race.” “I’m not racist. I have several Black friends.” “As a woman, I know what you go through as a racial minority.”

But most instances of microaggressions are less overt. There are college microaggressions such as a male student rolling his eyes when a female student speaks, or people not wanting to be in study groups with those of different races.

Perhaps the easiest way to be labeled a racist is to suggest that a wall be built on our border with Mexico in order to keep people from Mexico and points south from entering our nation illegally. Also, a slam-dunk charge of racism is to say that the standard practice of separating children from parents is Nazi-like. But imagine you are stopped with your child in the car and charged with a DUI in any of our 50 states. You’re going to be arrested and your child taken to protective child services. The identical practice on our southern border becomes racism.

As veteran journalist Brit Hume said about the uproar over President Donald Trump’s latest bomb-throwing: “Trump’s ‘go back’ comments were nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual and politically stupid. But they simply do not meet the standard definition of racist, a word so recklessly flung around these days that its actual meaning is being lost.” The president cleaned up his remarks a few days later saying: “These are people that hate our country. If you’re not happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, very simply, you can leave.” By the way, leaving isn’t Trump’s idea. Many leftists pledged to flee America altogether if Trump were elected president.

The bottom line is that when leftists have no other winning argument, they falsely accuse others of racism. Republicans cower at the charge and often give the leftists what they want. Black Americans who are octogenarians, or nearly so, need to explain what true racism is, not to correct white liberals but to inform young black people.

Rob ‘Meathead’ Reiner Wants You to Know ALL Trump Voters are Racist

H/T Godfather Politics.

The Meathead needs to just STFU and go away.

The Meathead is a has been.

We are once again reminded that Hollywood hates you, America, this time with Hollywood elite Rob “Meathead” Reiner saying that he thinks ALL Trump voters are racists.

Also, like all liberals, Reiner is lying when he says that Trump has made it clear that is re-election campaign is an appeal to “white nationalism.”

As he often does, Meathead jumped to spread his hate-filled, leftist propaganda on his overheated Twitter account, Monday.

“The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism,” Reiner wrote. “If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.”

Rob Reiner

The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism. If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.

The film director added that Trump’s mind is “infested” with lies and bigotry.

“Donald Trump’s mind is infested. With racism, with misogyny, with lies, with bigotry, with hate,” he wrote.

29.9K people are talking about this

Folks, make no mistake. This is what EVERY Hollywood leftist thinks about you. Trump has nothing to do with it. They have always thought this of you, even well before Trump.

As Breitbart News reported, Reiner’s penchant for calling Americans racists has been raging for some time.

It is not the first time that Reiner has attacked Trump’s millions of supporters as racist. In March, he argued that those involved in his “insidious cult” were condoning “white supremacy.”

“The President of the United States is a racist. He supports and promotes white supremacy & white nationalism,” he wrote at the time. “If you are part of this insidious cult, you condone that. Period.”

Last year, the Stand By Me director also declared that Trump’s supporters were “frightened to death over the browning of America” in response to his administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration.

“What we’re doing in the United States of America is inhuman,” he told MSNBC. “[Trump] launched his campaign basically saying, ‘Mexicans are rapists and murderers.’ That’s what he is still selling. It’s the only thing he can sell to that racist base of his. The people who support him are frightened to death of the browning of America.”

But one has to wonder about Reiner’s criteria for determining who is a racist and who is not.

After all, he made a film glorifying one of the worst, most coarse racists who ever sat in the White House with his film LBJ about the life of President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

It was Johnson who said that if he passed the Civil Rights bill, “I’ll have those n***ers voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” And who attacked Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by saying, “What is that g*ddamned n***er preacher doing to me?

And that was only two tiny examples. LBJ spent a lifetime erupting in expletive-laden, racist comments like that. And yet, there was big supporter Robe Reiner lionizing LBJ is a movie.

I guess that makes Reiner a supporter of a racist, and therefore a racist himself? It would if he were intellectually honest.
