NYT Hit Job and a Hillary Lie

That’s her tweet. Here’s a little of the story:

No Vacancies’ for Blacks: How Donald Trump Got His Start, and Was First Accused of Bias

She seemed like the model tenant. A 33-year-old nurse who was living at the Y.W.C.A. in Harlem, she had come to rent a one-bedroom at the still-unfinished Wilshire Apartments in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood of Queens. She filled out what the rental agent remembers as a “beautiful application.” She did not even want to look at the unit.

There was just one hitch: Maxine Brown was black.

Stanley Leibowitz, the rental agent, talked to his boss, Fred C. Trump.

“I asked him what to do and he says, ‘Take the application and put it in a drawer and leave it there,’” Mr. Leibowitz, now 88, recalled in an interview.

It was late 1963 — just months before President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the landmark Civil Rights Act — and the tall, mustachioed Fred Trump was approaching the apex of his building career. He was about to complete the jewel in the crown of his middle-class housing empire: seven 23-story towers, called Trump Village, spread across nearly 40 acres in Coney Island.

He was also grooming his heir. His son Donald, 17, would soon enroll at Fordham University in the Bronx, living at his parents’ home in Queens and spending much of his free time touring construction sites in his father’s Cadillac, driven by a black chauffeur.

“His father was his idol,” Mr. Leibowitz recalled. “Anytime he would come into the building, Donald would be by his side.”

Over the next decade, as Donald J. Trump assumed an increasingly prominent role in the business, the company’s practice of turning away potential black tenants was painstakingly documented by activists and organizations that viewed equal housing as the next frontier in the civil rights struggle.

The Justice Department undertook its own investigation and, in 1973, sued Trump Management for discriminating against blacks. Both Fred Trump, the company’s chairman, and Donald Trump, its president, were named as defendants. It was front-page news, and for Donald, amounted to his debut in the public eye.

In 1963 Donald Trump was 17 years old.

When it was over, Mr. Trump declared victory, emphasizing that the consent decree he ultimately signed did not include an admission of guilt.

But an investigation by The New York Times — drawing on decades-old files from the New York City Commission on Human Rights, internal Justice Department records, court documents and interviews with tenants, civil rights activists and prosecutors — uncovered a long history of racial bias at his family’s properties, in New York and beyond.

That history has taken on fresh relevance with Mr. Trump arguing that black voters should support him over Hillary Clinton, whom he has called a bigot.

While there is no evidence that Mr. Trump personally set the rental policies at his father’s properties, he was on hand while they were in place, working out of a cubicle in Trump Management’s Brooklyn offices as early as the summer of 1968.

Then and now, Mr. Trump has steadfastly denied any awareness of any discrimination at Trump properties. While Mr. Trump declined to be interviewed for this article, his general counsel, Alan Garten, said in a statement that there was “no merit to the allegations.” And there has been no suggestion of racial bias toward prospective residents in the luxury housing that Mr. Trump focused on as his career took off in Manhattan in the 1980s.

You should go read the whole article. I am not disputing any of the factual allegations in it. But the article in a hit job, and Hillary’s tweet is a lie.

Studies show that most people just skim headlines and maybe the first paragraph or two. Hillary knows this. So does the New York Times. So they cleverly set out to give the impression that Donald Trump has a record of discriminating against blacks and other minorities. If called on it they would claim they didn’t lie.

But they did.

You can read more about Fred Trump here. He died in 1999 at the age of 93. Was he a racist and a crook? I honestly don’t know nor do I care. Donald split off from his father’s business in the mid-70’s. Lot’s of us had parents with racial views we don’t agree with.

BTW – In 1964 Hillary was a “Goldwater Girl.” Goldwater was one of six Senate Republicans to vote against the Civil Rights Act.

    When it comes to race Progs are stuck in a time warp where it’s always 1963.

    • taw46 says:

      Yes. And as you said, people read the headline and miss this:

      “And there has been no suggestion of racial bias toward prospective residents in the luxury housing that Mr. Trump focused on as his career took off in Manhattan in the 1980s.”

    • taw46 says:

      Oh, and did I mention I hate those progs?

    • Constance says:

      Progs are stuck in a time warp regarding abortion also. Abortion has been legal in Washington state for 50 years. It was made legal by peoples initiative. We are not in danger of losing our rights. Also a woman’s freedom and full participation in society is not defined by her ability to abort her children. But every election the Progs start whipping the abortion hysteria dead horse again.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Women were dying at the hands of back alley butchers with rusty tools. Or killing themselves with wire hangers. We’ll never go back to those days. I’m not sure why the libs always use it as a political wedge. If anyone would have overturned Roe v Wade, it would have been Reagan or the Bushes. Safe, legal and rare, eh Hillary?

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          They also make a big deal about the unavailability of abortion services in rural areas like west Texas. What they don’t mention is that ALL medical services are hard to get in rural areas. When you live 200 miles from civilization everything is hard to get.

      • lateblum says:

        I know! Isn’t it something that my gay next door neighbor, who never had a child and did not want one, is telling me that abortion on demand is the issue that carries the most importance for her. *sigh*

    • mcnorman says:

      Crap, I wanted to see him in a Huma and Weiner for Hillary ad.

      • jennifer lyn says:

        I am ashamed for women that he has one. Speaks volumes about how allegedly smart Huma is. Man is high on his ego and it makes him beyond stupid. Watch the docu they made and you will see in about 1 second that this man is literally insane. Only person more insane is Huma who sleeps in same bed. yucky beyond belief. Oh, and they are both DEMOCRATS.

  18. taw46 says:

    “These people are idiots. More importantly, they are evil.

    They don’t know the truth; they haven’t bothered to seek it out. They know the narrative, and the narrative is enough. Americans suck, and Ryan Lochte is an American who is a wealthy white guy, so screw him. Truth be damned.

    Ryan Lochte may well be a jerk, but the evidence shows he’s not lying here. The so-called journalists smearing him are.

    They’ve ruined him. They have their pelt. They can pin it to the wall next to other people they’ve decided need to be destroyed simply because they felt like it.”

      I’ve been to Rio and I’ve been hustled by the local police. So have many other people I know that have visited Rio. Its old news there, and if you’re smart, you’ll carry a wad of cash if you dare to venture off the hotel grounds. And you’re right – Lochte is a jerk, but his story is real.

      • taw46 says:

        That was a quote from the article, Lochte just another example of how they get their narrative and run with it. Other people that they have done this to. How they never practice journalism anymore. In this case, USA Today was the only one who went out and researched the story, went to the gas station, watched the videos, talked to the witness. Which they all could have done, since all the major news outlets were there in Rio.

    Hmmm? Huma Weiner separating ?

  25. Somebody says:

    I think it is worth noting that Hillary’s self proclaimed mentor Robert Byrd on June 9 and 10, 1964 conducted the longest filibuster on record against the civil rights act…..14 hours and 13 minutes.

    What was more damaging? Hillary’s mentor’s actions or Trump’s father’s?? I wonder what Senator Byrd was up to in 1963?? Probably tending to Klan business.

      It only cost 1.5 million to make, so it’s doubled bank, or a “hit” in Hollywood circles. Loved the comments😉 I don’t think you were kidding about the Oscars, the Academy loves them some Obama and black actors should dominate the noms this year after last years #OscarSoWhite fiasco.

  29. votermom says:

    I can stop laughing at this comment:

    262 Amazing idea. If Hillary gets elected and takes Huma with her to the White House, do a reality show following their skirt-chasing husbands. Call it “Willy & Weiner: Chiefs of Staffs.”

      imho, a superb analysis.
      The last paragraph is the key to a Trump victory.
      “One cannot discount the barrage of negative ads that will come against Trump. And who knows what new revelations will shift the ground yet again? But particularly with more and more Clinton pay-to-play revelations, if by early October the social opprobrium shifts from “how could I possibly support him?” to “how could I possibly enable her?” then Republicans will win the presidency.”
