Trump Equals Chaos, Chicago Rally Sign of Things to Come

By Walter L. Hilliard III –

“I’d like to punch that guy in the face . . . . Get ’em the hell outta here.”  This is just some of the language Donald Trump has used during the Republi-Con primaries, capturing the imagination of America’s most racist elements — when, in actuality, he’s just another rich guy who doesn’t give a damn about the White middle class or people of color.  How does he get away with this?  It’s an old trick — drill the masses for 12 years in grade school on American White History and Civics Classes, with patriotism thrown in as common theme, for good measure, but of course, and then use the mainstream media to reflect Whiteness and brainwash everyone that minorities, especially Blacks, are their problem — not the Wall Street Corporate Welfare Piggies.

And so it is that on March 11, 2016, a near riot broke out at a Donald Trump rally in a gymnasium on the diverse campus at the University of Illinois in Chicago.   In fact, Chicago Police talked with Trump and Trump decided to cancel his rally, as TV images painted our TV screens with clans of cops and screaming protesters for and against Trump.

So you always reap what you sow, eventually.   I find Trump amusing, but he’s really no more racist and elitist than the other racist politicians participating in this year’s primaries, from Rubio to Clinton, from Christie to Bush.

Trump’s part of the Power Elite who’ve exploited the masses (creating Black bogeymen like Reagan did with Willie Horton), but he hasn’t wanted to “play ball” with the old gaurd of the Power Elite, particularly those in and behind the republican party.

So CNN was showing several fights, most between Black and Brown protesters and White Trump supporters — and, as expected, the police seemed to be arresting Blacks.  Additionally, CNN showed a 74-year-old hillbilly hit a Black protester being escorted up the steps by the police and the police never even blinked or stopped to arrest the White man.  There were Muslims, Whites, Mexicans and Blacks holding up signs against Trump (“Liberation, Not Deportation,” said one sign held up a proud Mexican man), but what they don’t realize is the masses, and especially minorities, have been losing the our fight against the wealthy, corporate welfare pigs and politicians since the inception of our country.

In 1857, regarding Dred Scott, a slave, suing for his freedom, Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney said:  “[African Americans] had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit. He was bought and sold, and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever a profit could be made by it.”

And nothing has really changed, especially for Black men . . . just ask Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and Trayvon Martin.
