The Big Lie

img_0481

Donald Trump is a racist, homophobic, islamophobic, xenophobic hate Monger!  Well that’s what we are told to believe, but is it true?  Just as Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis pushed their big lie so have the media and the left when it comes to Trump.  The idea of the ‘Big Lie’ originated with Hitler and the Nazis.  Joseph Goebbels perfected the idea of the big lie taking propaganda to a whole new level.  Goebbels used that big lie to further the Nazis long standing Anti-Semitism which eventually led to the murder of over 6 million Jews.  The Nazis wanted us all to believe that the Jews ran the world, and that it was them who were intent on wiping out the German people.  They therefore reasoned that it was their duty and right to exterminate them first in the self defence of the German people.  An entire population saw it as normal to hate Jews, almost patriotic if you will. And they carried out their evil extermination of the jews with an almost machine like perfection.

Fast forward 80 years to the election of Donald Trump and once again a big lie is being perpetrated.  Will there be concentration camps and mass murder? No not likely, but millions are still being maligned by a lie that has taken on a life of its own. Here’s the thing, if what they say about Trump and his supporters is true they deserve to be brought down.  America is better than that and there is no way a racist should be running the country, we saw how that turned out in Germany.  But what if none or little of what you are being told is actually true?  While there may be snippets of truth in what is being said of Trump and his supporters much of it is not true.  From the very beginning we were told he was a racist.  Yet over the years with the exception of a lawsuit that named the Trump organization as discriminating against black renters there is very little to show him as a racist. Now to be fair It was a different time and we have all evolved so to speak. Hillary Clinton herself referred to blacks as ‘Super Predators’ many years ago, do I think she is a racist person today? Absolutely not. Other allegations of Trump referring to Mexicans as rapists and drug dealers are equally either an outright lie or an exaggeration.  The exact quote that he made during that speech has been twisted and spun in so many directions was as follows.

QUOTE: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Now granted it’s a sloppy way of expressing what may be a genuine issue with illegal immigration allowing violent criminals into America, but he did NOT label ALL Mexicans drug dealers and Rapists! Again terrible way of expressing that concern but man would it be nice for the media to put a little context into their reporting now and then. I have yet to hear a single word out of Trumps mouth that could be construed as Homophobic.  After the Orlando massacre Trump had nothing but kind words for that community, a sentiment that has been echoed by many Trump supporters.  And need I remind you that the father of the man who murdered those members of the LGBTQ2 community was siting directly behind Hillary Clinton during a campaign event. Does that make her a supporter of terrorism or a homophobe? Of course not. Well that’s fine you’ll say but he mocked a handicap reporter!  Again this is not true and has been debunked.  The night of the apparent mocking Trump made his stupid flailing arms movements twice!  Yes he was mocking the reporter in question, but he had no idea the reporter was handicapped! He also did the exact movements when talking about a General in reference to defeating ISIS! And Ted Cruz received the same treatment in a South Carolina rally when Trump tried to impersonate a flustered Ted Cruz being asked about waterboarding!  In yet another case a  judge deciding Trumps fate surrounding the Trump University case also played highly in the press. While Trumps remarks were crude and simple minded he was essentially correct. His point was he felt he would not receive a fair trial. While the judge in question was indeed of Mexican decent, what was more alarming was the fact he was a member of  San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association.  Initially there was some confusion with another group by the name of La Raza that mostly dealt with immigration reform and better opportunities for Latino families. And there still remains some question as to the groups involvement with immigration and other Latino issues, but it still seems legit to question it. However the point can be made that Trump felt he couldn’t receive a fair trial due to his previous statements surrounding Mexico, and Latinos reaction to those statements.  As Trump had said things that may have been offensive to Latinos, is it not reasonable to assume that people who advocate for Latinos including this judge may find fault with Trump? Seems logical to me, and I’m sure most legal experts would agree.

Combine all these lies or half truths taken out of context into a narrative and preach it to the masses and what do you think will happen?  Eventually this big lie will catch on and no one will question it.  And for those who do question it immediate condemnation will follow. The media and certain groups on the left are currently pushing the big lie to the general public. The result? Riots and demonstrations in the streets, students receiving care from trauma specialists to deal with Trumps win, calls for impeachment have already begun, violence against Trump supporters, threats and intimidation and a growing hatred of Trump and all those who helped elect him. With it many false stories of violence being perpetrated by Trump supporters. False reports of women having hijabs ripped off people of colour being spit on and even women claiming to have been grabbed by the genitalia. It needs to stop. The media has the ability to do its job and report the truth, but sadly they won’t as they are part of the propaganda machine. Where will it end? More riots, More violence? A potential civil war? At this point who knows, he hasn’t even been sworn in yet and somehow we find ourselves on the edge of an all out national emergency worthy of the National Gaurd being called out.

Everyone needs to step back and examine the facts and draw their own conclusions. Once you do you too may come to the same conclusion I came to,  that we are being played for fools by the media in yet another lie aimed at Trump. They lied to us about Trump’s chances of winning the primary, they lied to us about the polls and his chances of getting elected and now they’re hammering home the lie that Trump and everyone who supported him is a racist bigot ready to infringe on every minorities basic human rights. There is no doubt Trump has said some stupid ignorant things and his words have been seen as hurtful and sexist in the eyes of many myself included. Are we willing to admit we have all said and done stupid things that we regret, but on the whole except him as a decent human being?  That’s not the narrative the media and left are pushing, instead labelling him and his supporters full blown bigots.  The question is are we stupid enough to believe that lie after all the previous ones they have pushed upon us? Or will we draw our own conclusions and give the man a chance to prove his worth?
