    Former Obama Aide: Trump ‘Very Reminiscent of Cross-Burning on Your Lawn, KKK’

    Former Obama Aide: Trump ‘Very Reminiscent of Cross-Burning on Your Lawn, KKK’

    Trump “spends more time decrying a New York Times reporter than these white supremacists”

    A former Obama White House adviser to President Obama, Karine Jean-Pierre, said this morning that “the thing about Donald Trump is that he is the known. He is, it is very reminiscent of cross-burning in front of your house. Of the KKK.”

    Jean-Pierre made her outrageous remark in response to a question from Al Sharpton, on his MSNBC show, as to what justice will be like under President Trump. The supposed Republican on the panel, Elise Jordan, rather than refuting Jean-Pierre, essentially seconded her, saying Trump “spends more time decrying a New York Times reporter than these white supremacists who are going out and committing these horrible acts.”

    Think about it: this wasn’t some random lefty off the street explicitly predicting that justice under President Trump will be “very reminiscent of cross burning in front of your house” and the KKK. This was a former senior Obama campaign aide and White House advisor.

    AL SHARPTON: What will justice be like under President Obama–under President Trump, rather, and Attorney General Sessions?

    KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: Well that’s the fear, right? There is the unknown and the known. When President Obama first became president, he was the unknown.

    SHARPTON: Right.

    JEAN-PIERRE: People didn’t know what to expect. The thing about Donald Trump is that he is the known, right? He is, it is very reminiscent of cross-burning in front of your house, right? Of the KKK. David Duke praised Sessions and praised Bannon.

    SHARPTON: And at first Trump said he wasn’t very familiar with who Duke was.

    JEAN-PIERRE: Meanwhile, he’s retweeting, he spent the election retweeting white nationalists.

    ELISE JORDAN: He spends more time decrying a New York Times reporter than these white supremacists who are going out and committing these horrible acts.

    Esquire Magazine ran an article titled “Why White Supremacists Support Barack Obama” in June, 2008. They’d interviewed four white supremacist groups and one black nationalist about who they preferred for president.

    Three of the four white supremacists supported Obama and the black nationalist supported McCain. Aside from Esquire, I don’t think anybody else in the media touched the story. I guess they were not vested in building a narrative about Obama’s being “associated” with white supremacists like they’ve been invested in tarring Trump with that smear non-stop for a year and a half.

    Point 2. Democrats have been trying to associate Republicans with fascist/racists since at least Truman. Truman was in a very close and tight race in 1948. During the campaign he went on a “whistle stop” tour by train stopping in many towns giving the same stump speech. His opponent was east coast liberal Republican Thomas Dewey. Here is the October 26, 1948 New York Times headline about Truman’s stop in Chicago:

    “President Likens Dewey to Hitler as Facists’ Tool,” read the Times headline, followed by the subhead, “Dictatorship Stressed.”

    The Times headline writer continued, “Truman Tells Chicago Audience a Republican Victory Will Threaten U.S. Liberty – Says When Bigots, Profiteers Get Control of Country They Select ‘Front Man’ to Rule.”

    They did the same thing to Barry Goldwater 16 years later in 1964. Despite his grandfather being Jewish, they still made the Hitler comparisons. Except by now the mainstream media was thoroughly corrupted and joined in. “Respected” CBS newsman Daniel Schorr turned Goldwater giving a speech to American military personnel who then controlled the German ski resort of Garmisch in the Alps into Goldwater aligning himself with German Neo-Nazis. The Democrat/media smears against Goldwater were about as bad as they’ve been against Trump, if not worse.

    “In a period of ten months,” wrote Lionel Lokos in his book Hysteria 1964, “Barry Goldwater was accused of being another Adolf Hitler, fomenting a racial holocaust, advocating a nuclear policy that would destroy half the world, seeking to destroy Social Security, being a lunatic paving the way for totalitarian government.” Sounds exactly like what they did to Trump, no?

    Democrats comparing Republicans to Nazi/Hitler/racists has been going on for almost 70 years. It’s what they do.
