Trump's outreach to black Americans put the blame for inner city crime, poor schools, and poor housing on the Democrat Party, and Democrats are worried Trump could be effective. Hillary couldn't possibly defend the Democrat Party's record, had no choice but to change the subject to the race card and make a speech about it in Reno. Trump has been in public life for over 30 years and no one's ever said he's a racist. But now that he seeks the presidency opposite a Democrat, all of a sudden, guess what?-Rush Limbaugh

8/25/16,  About Hillary's August 25, 2016 Reno speech in which she created imaginary extremist KKK types taking over the Republican Party. As it happens, her speech about dangerous extremists taking over the Republican party channeled one made 52 years earlier at the 1964 GOP convention by fellow globalist Nelson Rockefeller.


Rush: Hillary gave the race card Reno speech because Democrats are worried Trump's outreach to African-Americans could be effective. They know Trump was blaming the Democrat Party for crime, poor schools, and poor housing in inner cities--he wasn't blaming blacks. So Hillary had to come out and get her party off the hook and say Trump is racist. 



"RUSH:  I'll tell you another reason for this speech that she gave yesterday: Trump's outreach to the African-American community. Do not be misled, do not be fooled; the Democrats are worried that it could be effective. They're very worried about it. They, of course, don't act like it. They act like, "Oh, this is outrageous! Trump's out insulting them!" Wrong.  I'm gonna put this all in perspective for you as the program unfolds. 'Cause Trump -- whatever he was warning the Democrats, whatever he's warning African-Americans about -- he wasn't criticizing them. He was criticizing the Democrat Party. He was telling them it's the Democrat Party that has made their bed for 'em, and it's time that that changed....

Trump comes out, starts making these appeals to African-Americans on the basis that the Democrat Party has let them down,...that the Democrat Party is just using them. And so Hillary has to get in gear and immediately bring out the whole deck of race cards to try to destroy Trump.

Donald Trump has been in public life for 30 years. People have worked for Trump. People have done this with Trump, all kinds of people. He's been on TV. He's hosted TV shows. He's worked with top-level executives. He was given his own reality show. At no time in those 30 years did anybody ever say Donald Trump was a racist, and then all of a sudden when he seeks the presidency opposite a Democrat, guess what? Like every other Republican before him, he becomes a racist....

This is what the Democrats do. It's the primary card that they play, and she played it big time on Trump yesterday. She said: "Trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in insulting and ignorant terms: 'Poverty. Rejection. Horrible education. No housing. No homes. No ownership. Crime at levels nobody has seen… Right now, you walk down the street, you get shot.' Those are his words."

Well, yeah. But he wasn't blaming African-Americans. He was defending them. He was blaming the Democrat Party for the circumstances in which African-Americans and other minorities in this country now live. Trump was trying to tell them, "You are voting for people who don't really care about you. You're voting for people who only care about you for your votes. They don't care about you and your lives, and the evidence is your lives." Well, that kind of outreach to African-Americans, that's not gonna be tolerated in the Democrat Party, so out Hillary went with her speech.

And guess where she is now? She's out making an appeal to Asian-Americans on the same pretext. She needs their votes. She's out pandering as the Democrats do."...

    1967 film

    Added: Twenty years ago in 1996 when Palm Beach social clubs barred African Americans and Jews, Donald Trump's lawyer sent copies of the film, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," to members of the Palm Beach town council and filed a lawsuit against them:

    April 30, 1997, "Trump’s Palm Beach Club Roils the Old Social Order," The Wall Street Journal, by Jacqueline Bueno.

    Nov. 2015 article:

    11/13/2015, "When Trump Fought the Racists," American Spectator, Jeffrey Lord

    "A 1997 Wall St. Journal story featured his Florida fight against anti-Semitism, racists."

    "The WSJ story...focuses on the battles Trump faced as a new arrival to Palm Beach, including his new competition with the social clubs of the old order....

    It revolves around Trump’s purchase and operation of the famous Mar-a-Lago estate, built in the 1920s by Post Cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. Trump had recently purchased the sprawling, seaside estate and turned it into a club. This being located in upscale Palm Beach, Florida, there were other prestigious clubs in the area, clubs that catered to the old order of upper crust Palm Beach society. The problem? Quietly, other clubs had long barred Jews and African Americans— which is to say they practiced a quiet but steely racism....

    The (WSJ) story, which quotes Abe Foxman, the longtime head of the Anti-Defamation League, says, in part, the following:

    "Mr. Trump also has resorted to the courts to secure his foothold here, and many residents wince at the attention his legal battles with the town have drawn — to the town in general, and to the admission practices at some of Palm Beach’s older clubs in particular.
    …The culture clash began to approach a climax last fall (1996), when Mr. Trump’s lawyer sent members of the town council a copy of the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a film that deals with upper-class racism. Mr. Trump then approached the town council about lifting the restrictions that had been placed on the club. He also asked some council members not to vote on the request because their membership in other clubs created a conflict of interest.
    Last December (1996), after the council refused to lift the restrictions, Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Palm Beach, alleging that the town was discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans. The suit seeks $100 million in damages."...

    In other words? In other words, long before he was running for president, there was Donald Trump battling racism and anti-Semitism in Palm Beach society. Using every tool at his disposal.

    The film he chose to send the Palm Beach town council was no accident. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was released in 1967 and starred film legends Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, and Sidney Poitier. The Oscar-winning story revolved around a liberal, upper-class older couple who are stunned and discomfited when their daughter, played by Katharine Houghton, brings her new fianc√© — Poitier — home to dinner and an introduction to her white parents. As liberals, her parents were staunch supporters of racial equality and had raised their daughter accordingly. Yet suddenly, in comes the very personal reality of equality when their daughter waltzes in the door after a vacation with husband-to-be Poitier, a black widower and doctor. Soul searching about just how devoted to equality they really are ensues.

    Thus it was no accident that Trump selected this movie to tweak the members of both the Palm Beach town council and the larger white society it represented. Trump understood exactly what the game was and he would have none of it. In addition to sending a copy of the movie, he launched his lawyers, who filed that $100 million lawsuit “alleging that the town was discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans.”...

    Yet here comes the utterly predictable charge of racism from

    The harsh reality of the racism charge against Trump is not only that it is bogus, utterly false from start to finish. The reality is the charges of racism against Trump are coming from the one political force in the country that has a long, deep, and immutable history of racism. A racism that is no relic of a long ago past but both current and visceral, used now as it has always been used — to divide and judge by skin color for political profit.

    The good news here that in Donald Trump someone — finally — is standing up to fight back. Just as he fought back all those years ago in Palm Beach when no one was looking."
