  55. Natural Instinct

    Based on Michael Fullilove writing don’t expect any bouquets for Trump

    It seems ridiculous to compare Franklin Roosevelt with Donald Trump. Yet the comparison is telling.

    The response from the White House to the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who marched through Charlottesville should have been obvious. Instead President Donald Trump has doggedly maintained his neutrality. In his initial statement, Trump refused to call out the sinister forces present in Charlottesville. He could only bring himself to condemn hatred, bigotry and violence “on many sides.”

    For two long days, he refused to revise his comments. Finally he read out a statement calling white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan “repugnant.” But the following day he reclaimed the moral low ground, equating racists with anti-racists and claiming there was “blame on both sides.”

    Naturally white nationalists were delighted. “When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room,” crowed the The Daily Stormer. “Really, really good. God bless him.”

    “Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth,” tweeted former Klan leader David Duke.

    A week later, in his speech on Afghanistan, Trump again sought to clean up his Charlottesville response, rejecting prejudice, bigotry and hate and declaring that “love for America requires love for all of its people”. But it was too late.

    Trump has said dreadful things about race in the past. He spent years questioning whether the first African American president was born in America. As a presidential candidate he called Mexicans ‘rapists’ and promised a ban on Muslims entering the United States.

    And yet the moral relativism of his comments about Charlottesville was still shocking. In Charlottesville, only one ‘side’ counted Nazis among its ranks. We expect the president of the United States to be unambiguously opposed to Nazis.

    Franklin Roosevelt was not a perfect human being; he was a man of his time. But in 1940, he knew whom he supported and whom he opposed.

    Next…

    Many Australians will have seen the humor in Mr. Turnbull’s performance. Lowy Institute polling conducted in the lead up to the 2016 election found that 77% of Australians would have preferred it if Hillary Clinton had won. Only 11% preferred Donald Trump.

    Now that Mr. Trump has become president, the 2017 Lowy Institute Poll finds that 60% of Australians say Mr. Trump causes them to have an unfavorable opinion of the U.S. He’s particularly unpopular among young adults—with 70% saying he is a negative factor in their opinion of the U.S.—and women, 68% of whom disapprove of the U.S. leader.

    And again ….

    Trump is clearly comfortable using military force. He also sees unpredictability as a source of strength. During the campaign he said that US foreign policy makers were too obvious with their moves, “like bad checker players”.

    In these respects, Trump presents a striking contrast to his predecessor, who was cautious in his foreign policy and sceptical about the utility of force.
    ….
    Trump’s recent actions on both Asia and the Middle East show a president who is edging towards normality. He is still a long way from coherence.

    Beta male tries to speak, is patronisingly touched on the arm and shut down by the women. He’s on their side, and they treat him like a puppy dog. Why do Beta-males do it?

  64. Elle

    Who is the chick with the scarf on … and the excessive makeup … touching a white male? What if he put his hand on her?

  65. Snoopy

    I love it when whites who are paid to travel around the world giving us the benefit of their intellect diss white supremacy.

    Indian blokes are the most sexist I have ever come across.

    You got that right Elle, my son and daughter-in-law chose India of all places for their honeymoon, (they thought it was like Vietnam, but with the Taj Mahal). They came home a week early because my DIL cried every day feeling intimidated, frightened and visually assaulted every time they went out. She has a very jaundiced view of Indian men as a result.
