The New York Times is one of, if not the most, deplorable, unashamed leftwing publications in the country, and they’ve hardly been shy about going after Donald Trump any chance they can get.
Which is why it’s likely to shock the pants right off you when you hear what one writer who works for the publication said about the real estate mogul and his comments about how Democrats take advantage of black Americans.
She actually admitted he was right.
Yes, you read that correctly. The end is nigh.
According to TheBlaze, And the fact that Nikole Hannah-Jones — author of “Trump’s Inconvenient Racial Truth” — happens to be black might strike some as a not-so-insignificant fact with regard to her arguments.
Hannah-Jones opens her essay recalling several Trump rally speeches in which he addressed problems in the black community. She quoted from one he gave in Wisconsin after police shot a black man in Milwaukee over the summer:
Our job is to make life more comfortable for the African-American parent who wants their kids to be able to safely walk the streets. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus, or the young child walking home from school. For every one violent protester, there are a hundred of moms and dads and kids on the same city block who just want to be able to sleep safely at night.
Hannah-Jones noted that Trump then called out Democrats who’ve “failed and betrayed the African-American community” — not to mention Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton who he said “panders and talks down to communities of color” and views “them only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.” Trump soon declared that Democrats must start competing for black votes.
And she seemed amazed by the “unexpected twist” in Trump’s speech.
There was something utterly surreal about that moment. Trump had spent months whipping up his supporters, focusing on other so-called minority groups whom he labeled rapists and terrorists, and now he was telling the nearly all-white crowd that if they voted for him, he’d use his power to help black residents in the inner cities by bringing jobs back and improving their wages.
Indeed, she added, “Trump was speaking more directly about the particular struggles of working-class black Americans and describing how the government should help them more than any presidential candidate in years. Let that uncomfortable truth sink in.”
Not that Hannah-Jones is championing Trump as a candidate. But she said he does make a crucial point:
What I am saying is that when Trump claims Democratic governance has failed black people, when he asks “the blacks” what they have to lose, he is asking a poorly stated version of a question that many black Americans have long asked themselves. What dividends, exactly, has their decades-long loyalty to the Democratic ticket paid them? By brushing Trump’s criticism off as merely cynical or clueless rantings, we are missing an opportunity to have a real discussion of the failures of progressivism and Democratic leadership when it comes to black Americans.
Whether you love Trump or not, the truth of the matter is he’s absolutely correct about Democrats and how they’ve taken advantage of the black community.
Liberals do not see minorities as people, but as opportunities to help further their own agendas, a means of obtaining more power, money, and job security.
In reality, the majority of leftists do not actually care about the plight these folks find themselves in, they only care about using them as stepping stones to get to the next level of their career.
If you don’t believe that’s true, take a look at what Hillary Clinton and her campaign said about the whole Eric Garner ordeal.
The daughter of a New York City man who died after he was put in a police chokehold blasted Hillary Clinton’s campaign Thursday when WikiLeaks revealed email conversations about using her father’s death to protest gun violence.
“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use’ my dad,” tweeted Erica Garner, who endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.
“I know we have Erica Garner issues but we don’t want to mention Eric at all? I can see her coming after us for leaving him out of the piece,” Clinton’s traveling press secretary Nick Merrill wrote in an email.
The conversation about possibly considering mentioning Garner in an editorial about gun violence became public in private emails illegally hacked by WikiLeaks. The Clinton campaign has not commented or verified the authenticity of the emails.
When you see things like this coming from hypocritical left-wingers, it makes Hillary’s insult of calling Trump supporters “deplorable” all the more ironic.
After all, how deplorable does one have to be to use a man’s death as a political tool to help win an election?
