The candidacy of Donald Trump is confusing Democrats in the general campaign just as much as he confused his Republican opponents in the primary season. He is causing shell-shock in professional Democrat circles. Liberals have become so accustomed to establishment Republicans accepting their liberal ideology and joining them in their big-government, politically correct campaigns (examples: LGBT restroom choice, open borders to illegal aliens, increasing welfare handouts with no work requirements, etc.) that they don’t know how to respond to a truth teller and independent thinker like Trump.
I can’t recall a point in recent history when liberals didn’t declare that society in general and Republicans in particular mistreated blacks as a matter of routine to the point where blacks and other minorities were unable to live and earn a living in racist America without the assistance of big-government (Democrat party) handouts. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have repeatedly demanded more goodies be distributed to the minority members of an unjust America. The Obama Justice Department recently declared that blacks are being targeted in big cities like Baltimore for continual harassment by the racist police department (which is largely minority by the way) each and every time they leave their homes. So with this alleged racist environment facing a large portion of our population, welfare roles swelled and dependence on government (some would use the word “enslaved” for this dependence situation) became accepted and the tentacles of big, plantation-running government increased every year. Even the current presidential campaign finds the Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, whose party has been in power the last 7-plus years, complaining about the unfair plight of minority citizens, the terrible public school results, the horrible murder rate in cities like Chicago (which is run by an Obama Democrat) and promises to fix these problems if elected president.
But Donald trump has taken the lies of liberals/Democrats/progressives and used them against candidates like Hillary, stating that they, the liberals, were the fault and that if elected he would assure that the leftist enslavement of so many people in America would come to an end, and asked blacks for their votes in order to get the Democrat-oppressed members of our society back to work and free from the crime-filled neighborhoods the Democrats have assigned them to. Trump has even been so crass as to explain that this virtual imprisonment of so many American citizens was the price they pay for the goodies they receive in exchange for their votes for Democrats each election season.
Now comes the good part: Liberals in the media heard Trump’s criticism of the racial situation the Democrats have created and have begun their own campaign against him by declaring that blacks living in America really don’t have it so bad, and in fact they live very well and comfortably. One wonders what happened to the police brutality, the bad schools, the racism, the high unemployment rate, the crime-infested neighborhoods that Hillary and Jesse and Al and the Black Lives Matter Crowds have been complaining about, and making worse, all these years.
