(Update 8/16. Watch for tonight’s debate at the Reagan Library where word is that all hands are on deck to pound Trump, with Ben Carson to “win” the debate and Jebby boy to excitedly look “above it all” trying to show he has energy. I do pray that all the candidates continue to expose who they are working for tonight. There is only one who shamelessly states his goal is to help America.)
In 2008 the democrats used the race card against Hillary Clinton by overtly favoring Barack Obama, and made no bones about calling anyone who was against Barack Obama a racist, including Clinton. The fight for the democrat nomination was tough and for all intents and purposes, Clinton did win the primary but was torpedoed by the politics and vote maneuvering of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). These were the pictures: a vibrant, young (black) Obama versus the old, white hag:
It was a no-brainer to see that the black guy Obama would easily defeat the washed up old white neo-con McCain.
And the reality of course, is we got both of them perfectly portrayed here:
Enter the 2016 Republicans
Already I see Ben Carson bumper stickers and I am reminded how many people put Obama stickers on their car just so everyone knew they were voting for the black guy before they found out what the “black guy” stood for. Do people who have these stickers know about Ben Carson’s anti-gun, pro-common core, forced vaccinations, and use of baby parts for research positions?
And then there is Donald Trump, telling it like it is and shocking the republican establishment to the core. He also is providing a service in exposing the party elite and candidates for who they are—nothing but pansies doing the bidding of someone else. The people love him and are keeping him up in the polls while the establishment candidates ratings are down in the single digits with one already gone.
The rinos hate it, the media hates it even more, and the dimocrats are worried because all they’ve got is a geezer and a liar running for their nomination. Either of these two dims would beat every republican except Trump.
So the goal is to torpedo Trump. Why not try the race card?
And holy cow! Overnight, and out of nowhere, Carson is tied with Trump in Iowa!
But of course, no one can touch, legitimately criticize or question Carson, you know, because he’s black. Watch how Trump and Carson are portrayed by the media side-by-side and it will be evident.
It’s the RNC’s version of the DNC’s 2008 race card, using it as a last desperate ploy to knock Trump out. And then what better way to (try to) defeat the democrats this year than by placing a black guy against the socialist geezer or the liar?
Don’t fall for the ruse, folks, and don’t telegraph your punches or lack thereof.
