Please Let This Be A Hoax, Donald

Donald Trump is promoting the most absurd right wing lines around: There can’t be global warming because it is cold outside. Obama not born in the US. Now he’s repeating the claim that Bill Ayers wrote Dreams Of Our Fathers. I’m just hoping it is a massive publicity stunt and in the final episode of Apprentice he tells all the wing nuts they should be fired for actually believing this crap. It’s not like his current statements are at all consistent with what he’s said in the past, as even many conservatives realize.

The whole Birther issue is basically thinly veiled racism stemming from the fear and distrust of many conservatives of people who do not look like them. It is certainly plausible that a person could be spreading the Birther nonsense about Obama without necessarily being a racist. I do doubt that this actually occurs in the real world. It didn’t take Donald Trump long to move from bringing up the Birther nonsense to outright appealing to the racism of the right wing as he blames “The Blacks” for getting Obama elected.

    Every day it becomes more ridiculous to call any of these politicians “conservative.” They have become clowns. Trump is a perfect example. He is not conservative, nor even a politician. Clearly he is not serious about running for office. His candidacy is literally a joke. Come on, does any serious person actually believe that Mr. “Yer Fired” is capable of being President of the U.S.?
    It is high time to stop calling these comedians “conservative.” They are anything but. They are theocrats, our version of the Taliban. We could call them the Theocrat party.

    Yes, it is an insult to true conservatives. Unfortunately the theocrats have pretty much taken over the conservative movement these days. Trump is in a way proof of this. He is adopting many of the views of theocrats, which contradict some of his earlier views, because he knows that is necessary to gain support from conservatives. (The fact he did this keeps me open to the possibility that he just might be serious about running in Republican primaries). Such shifts are nothing new–Mitt Romney did the same thing on some issues.
