Anatomy of a Smear


We knew it was coming, we just didn’t expect it so soon:

Until recently, Jared Taylor, long one of the country’s most prominent white supremacists, had never supported a presidential candidate.

“There’s been no one worth endorsing,” he said in an interview. “I mean, for heaven’s sake, was John McCain ever going to do anything useful as far as the legitimate interests of whites are concerned?”

But Mr. Taylor believes he has finally found someone who will: Donald J. Trump.

This year, Mr. Taylor’s voice could be heard on robocalls to voters across Iowa and New Hampshire, urging them to support Mr. Trump. “We don’t need Muslims,” he said on the call. “We need smart, educated, white people who will assimilate to our culture.”

Then came Sunday — a banner day for Mr. Trump in the eyes of white-power advocates.

Well that’s a burning cross smoking gun!

In an early-morning social media post, Mr. Trump approvingly reposted on Twitter a quotation from Benito Mussolini (“It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep”). Then, in an interview on CNN, he refused to condemn the Ku Klux Klan or David Duke, its onetime grand wizard, after Mr. Duke declared his support for Mr. Trump.

“God bless this man,” exulted the Daily Stormer, a white supremacist website.

After the CNN interview, Mr. Trump pointed to his disavowal of Mr. Duke’s support two days earlier. In an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show on Monday, he blamed a “very bad earpiece” for his equivocation. And a spokeswoman for Mr. Trump, Hope Hicks, said he broadly disavowed all white supremacist groups.

Mr. Duke took no umbrage. “I’ll laugh it off — that’s fine,” he said in an interview on Fox News Radio on Monday evening. “Donald Trump: Do whatever you need to get elected.”

Intentionally or not, Mr. Trump’s remarks are resonating with — and mobilizing — white supremacists, many of whom have traditionally refrained from participating in the political process.

Last week we heard from numerous sources that the GOPe was going all-in to “Stop Trump.” A couple days later they used smoke, mirrors, innuendo and guilt by association to whip up a yuuge nothingburger story smearing Trump as pandering to racists.

He only denounced David Duke twice!!! He’s a racist!!!

They haven’t offered any racist statements by Donald Trump. They haven’t come up with a single racist act by Donald Trump. They can’t show any instance when Donald Trump supported a racist group or candidate.

This is a classic left-wing media smear. What is disturbing is that so many people on the right have played along.

We’ll find out this evening how effective this smear has been.

This is what we look like to them

This is what we look like to them

Unless President Donald J. Trump pulls a hat out of a rabbit real soon, on 1/21/21 I will wake up in a socialist banana republic.

    They planted a seed. They are so good at their smears.

    • taw46 says:

      It won’t matter to those already for Trump. But it may to those who don’t follow politics, they don’t know what establishment is trying to do in this primary.

      • nerdle says:

        I don’t think it matters because a lot of people, in my opinion, don’t give a fuck about race anymore. That horse has been beat to death and is being sent to a meat packing plant.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      The big tell is that they don’t show the clip. If he had really said something outrageous they would be playing the clip over and over and over and over.

  2. Venus says:

    Trump should say the same thing that Obama said in 2008 when Hillary pressed him for not disavowing Louis Farakhan’s endorsement “I didn’t endorse him, he endorsed me'” (big grin)
    The press slobbered all over themselves at how witty that response was and that Hillary was the racist for bringing it up.

    Also read last night that Duke never endorsed Trump in the first place.

    Finally rumor is that it’s Rubio’s super pac paying for those robocalls.

    “Conald” ?? Even my spell check won’t accept it. What is the significance of the word?

    • Venus says:

      Con + Donald.

      You have to think like an adolescent

      • leslie says:

        I’m stuck in thinking like a 2y/o. Thanks. This must be what I have to look forward to in a decade. 😉

      • Jadzia says:

        Bonus point if you speak French: “con” basically means dickhead.

        • lyn says:

          So Marco Rubio is le petit con?

          • Jadzia says:

            At the agricultural salon yesterday (Very Big Deal here, I file it under “Stuff French People Like”), Sarkozy was trying to gladhandle his way through the crowd and one of the farmers looked at him and said, “Don’t touch me, you little dickhead.”

            You think he’d learn. The last time he attended this event it ended with him basically saying, “You wanna piece of me?” to some heckler in the crowd (this was back when he was president).

            Hollande got booed by the ENTIRE crowd the day before. You would think the politicians would stop attending this event!

    Neil Cavuto is a jerk, imho. He is grilling Cruz and he is making me really irritates. Is Cavuto always like this?

    • leslie says:

      I actually have the tv on whilst g-baby is sleeping.
      bTw, it is snowing a windy and feels like January today. I hade to scrape the car this morning. It will take even longer this evening when I go home. Oopsie. . . I just heard the little one wake up yelling my name. Heh.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Dunno – I would have a hard time picking Cavuto out of a line up.

      • Constance says:

        Yes. Cavuto is an absolute ass. Sometimes he is funny but mostly he is so arrogant he’s hard to watch.

    • DeniseVB says:

      What really frosted my cupcakes on Cavuto’s show where all those GOPe toadies he dragged out to say they’d vote for Hillary over Trump. Gah.

    I ❤ Ace:

    I mentioned in an earlier post that there are two sorts of ruling classes:

    1. Ruling classes which are adroit at repositioning themselves and co-opting new political movements which might be threatening to them, but which could be made allies with the right level of compromise and negotiation,


    2. Former ruling classes which have been deposed completely.

    The delusion of the donor class is that there is a third type or ruling class:

    3. A Ruling Class which gives the finger to new political movements which are a threat to it, does not attempt to co-opt them through compromise and give-and-take, but simply Wins over them because they're so obviously Fabulous, Rich, Smart, and Appealing.

    That sort of ruling class does not exist, except in the imaginations of the ruling class itself. In fact, that sort of thinking, this belief in a Type 3 ruling class, is an accelerant for the fire that will consume a ruling class and turn it into a Type 2 Former Ruling Class.

    The GOP ruling class has had years and years to slowly accommodate itself with actual reality, and has skillfully avoided every opportunity to do so. There were a series of revolts starting from 2006 over the issue of amnesty. The ruling class studiously learned nothing.

    Like liberals — whom they closely resemble, because they are, culturally and spiritually, liberals — each of their defeats and disasters is excused away.

    In fact, they praise themselves for each defeat and disaster. Each of their defeats is a moral victory, each of their disasters is just an opportunity for enlightened renewal.

    For years, blogs and talk radio have been absolutely on fire with anger about the betrayals and deceptions of the current bunch in Congress. The ruling class elegantly learned nothing.

    David Brat deposed the House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor. If the warning lights in the GOP cockpit weren't already blinking like a short-circuiting Christmas tree, this certainly should have told them that something was amiss.

    But the ruling class, gracefully, learned nothing at all.

    A presidential election is a bad time for trying to teach lessons to such brilliantly impervious students as these. Nevertheless, many feel as if they have no other option remaining to them.

    They have chosen the form of their destructor, and that form is Marco Rubio.

    The Suicide of the GOP Establishment
    Despite the Trump juggernaut, they refuse to rethink Bushism in their support for Rubio

    by Laura Ingraham

    Here is something to think about as we approach Super Tuesday.

    If Marco Rubio becomes president, we can expect:

    1.) That he will work with Democrats and the GOP leadership in Congress to pass something that looks like the Gang of Eight amnesty bill.

    2.) That he will urge Congress to pass any trade agreements that Obama has signed.

    3.) That he will send significant numbers of U.S. troops to the Middle East.

    4.) That his foreign policy will be developed by many of the same people who advised George W. Bush.

    5.) That his economic policy will reflect the views of those who were in power when the United States was hit by the economic crisis of 2008.

    Now, I don't think any of these points are truly controversial. Somewhere, there may be naive people who actually believe that Rubio will put border enforcement first. But all sophisticated analysts of politics — including the folks at National Review — certainly expect that a President Rubio will support the same type of amnesty that was supported by Sen. Rubio. And on the other issues, Rubio has not even pretended that he will break with the Obama/Bush trade policy, the Bush foreign policy, or the Bush economic policy.

    For almost eight years, it has been increasingly clear that many, many Republicans — probably a majority of the party — do not agree with any of the five principles outlined above. Time and time again, grassroots and movement conservatives have expressed their opposition to all five of the key planks in Rubio's platform. These Republicans do not support the Gang of Eight bill. They do not support Obama’s trade deals. They do not want to spend huge amounts of blood and treasure again in the Middle East. And they most certainly do not want the economy to look like it did in the fall of 2008.

    Some of Marco's latest endorsements are bound to help Trump more than him
    These voters have tried, through every means available, to make their opposition felt. They are the reason that Eric Cantor is no longer in the House. They are the reason that the Gang of Eight bill didn't pass. They are the reason that John Boehner is no longer speaker. And they are the reason that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have dominated the polls for months.

    Many people have urged the Rubio donor network, think-tank fellows and media supporters to back off on their policy demands — to do more than simply acknowledge "the voters are right to be angry."

    Nevertheless, even today, the Rubio supporters refuse to budge. They could have supported Govs. Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, or Christie, or Carly Fiorina. Even today they could support Gov. John Kasich or Sen. Ted Cruz. But from the beginning, most of the Rubio supporters have made it clear that they are only willing to support two people: Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio. They have shot down every other candidate who has been offered. And many have publicly and privately threatened to bolt the party and support Hillary Clinton if they don't get their way.

    Furthermore, the Rubio supporters have, for the most part, flatly refused even to debate the policy issues at stake here. They will not even discuss changing our trade policy. They make some noises about immigration enforcement, but this is not done in a spirit of compromise, but with the arrogance of those who know that no one really expects them to change their views if they win. For all the complaints about Trump's policy generalities, Establishment GOP types have not even pretended to engage in a serious debate. Their offer is simple: You do as we say, or we will throw the election to Hillary.

    I've described this as a political revolution, in that it seems necessary to sweep the old order — the old personnel out — so that new people can be swept in.

    Given that the old people simply refuse to budge a single inch when half of the party is demanding change — note, they only get really tough and take an absolutely-no-compromise attitude with other Republicans, especially those they consider to be of a lower class — I don't know what other option remains. You could keep the same personnel if they were willing to change, or even just debate, the agenda they're pushing. But that they will not do.

    Like all highly educated and open-minded people, they absolutely refuse to even consider opposing viewpoints.

    There is going to be a major change here. The ruling class could have actually detected this, and attempted to manage the change, to create some kind of hybrid that would satisfy both the old guard and the new upstarts. Instead, they have consistently doubled-down on failure.

    Again, like college-educated people do.

    So an actual destruction of the old guard it will have to be.

    I had hoped, and still hope, that this destruction will be conducted with a guy who is himself smart and adroit, Ted Cruz.

    But the old guard has dug its heels in for its Amnesty Fiend Marco Rubio, so that appears less and less likely an outcome.

    Vote Rubio, get Trump. And then get Hillary.

    I disagree with that last sentence.

    • elliesmom says:

      How exactly would voting for Rubio destroy the old guard? Enquiring minds want to know. Electing Rubio over Hillary doesn’t even destroy the old guard in the Democratic Party. Defeating Hillary with Rubio just says the Democrats gave her a chance, but she didn’t make it happen. Shows them they were right in 2008. Most parties lose the White House after holding it for 8 years. Nothing to see here. Just continue on continuing on. Ace has DTDS. It’s OK. It’s happening to the best of them, but that’s a long post to come to an asinine conclusion like that.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Very good points. Who knows what will happen between Hillary and Trump. I don’t underestimate Clintons. But I’m 100% sure Hillary would beat either Rubio or Cruz.

      • lyn says:

        I could see either Bobbsey Twin attacking Hillary as they did to Trump in the last debate , and women voters would coalesce around Hillary.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I heard a caller on Rush today say he was a Cruz supporter, but the media AND dems would gang up to defeat him. The caller said he changed to Trump because he doesn’t fear and stands up to the media. Something to think about?

      “The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the refugee group by the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, said the state was violating the U.S. Constitution and the Civil Rights Act by accepting refugees from other countries but not from Syria. At the time, the group said it expected to settle about 19 Syrians vetted by the federal government within the next several months.”
      See, this just pisses me off. We no longer have a right to decide who enters our country. They’re not even here, and they get protected under our constitution.

        The ACLU have been busy little beavers lately. I’m beginning to think they should be considered a hate group, because they sure hate conservatives and LEO’s.

    I’m finally home and tuned in to FBN for the first time, possibly ever. I’m gonna stick with Fox Business News at least for a while. Even though Cavuto is on right now. Even on the business news channel he’s an ass. But earlier when I saw him, it was on Fox News. And he was worse.
