Birther Tries to Flim Flam Blacks  

Steve Bannon didn’t just make Breitbart a safe space for white supremacists; he’s also welcomed a scholar blacklisted from the mainstream conservative movement for arguing there’s a connection between race and IQ. Breitbart frequently highlights the work of Jason Richwine, who resigned from the conservative Heritage Foundation when news broke that his Harvard dissertation argued in part that Hispanics have lower IQs than non-Hispanic whites- “As Breitbart’s chief, Steve Bannon did a lot to normalize the racist, anti-Semitic world of the alt right. Now they rejoice as he joins the campaign of their king.”

— Betsy Woodruff and Gideon Resnick, “Alt Right Rejoices at Donald Trump’s Steve Bannon Hire” The Daily Beast, 8.17.16

I grew up in Buffalo, New York, where every Black person knew that a man named John Young,[1] a Black man, invented “Buffalo Chicken Wings.” During the Super Bowl, one billion Chicken Wings were sold! Suppose John Young or someone like him had the kind of credit privileges that Donald Trump is awarded as a matter of wealthy White birthright? The opportunity to even file bankruptcies, yet get another shot at prosperity. Finding ways to avoid paying taxes. (I’ve been running a small press since 1974 and have been the subject of 100% audits, which cost me time and money, which I could have used to publish 3 or 4 titles.) How many Black men and women could have been employed by a John Young?

Black pundits complain that Trump should have made his race speeches to Blacks instead of to White audiences located near Milwaukee and Detroit. Suburbs that are one percent Black. The speech wasn’t aimed at Blacks. It wasn’t made to attract liberal White voters. It was meant to signify on Blacks. It was all about crime and unemployment. It was made to shame Blacks to the delight of the suburban Whites, who were seated behind him. They laughed as he gave a Fox News depiction of Black life.

Trump assured the audience that he will follow the practice of his mentor Rudolph Giuliani: Always side with the police no matter their offenses against the Black inner city (which with gentrification is becoming an obsolete term), and no matter how lethal. Giuliani and Bloomberg used the police to drive thousands of blacks from New York. This is what these politicians mean when they say, “Law and Order.” We will hammer Blacks and confine them to their neighborhoods. That every police killing of an unarmed Black will be supported by the police unions, the media, the district attorney and whichever tools are available to the farce that Americans call the Justice System. That’s why Trump won’t mention the complaints about the police that are heard in Black communities. That they are the subjects of disproportionate traffic stops,[2] and that some police departments arrest Blacks capriciously in order to fulfill quotas.[3]

You could tell that his pleas to help the Black community were phony because he didn’t mention the exploitation of Blacks by banks who redline Blacks and use their deposits to increase the equity of Whites, which is one of the reasons that the net worth of Whites is many times that of Blacks and Hispanics.

Because “Birther” Trump believes that Blacks are dumb, he didn’t think that we’d notice that in his Black outreach speech he didn’t mention that banks discriminate against Blacks who wish to buy a home in Milwaukee, regardless of their income level, forty miles from where he made the speech!![4] Blacks weren’t supposed to notice that while he was beginning a fourth quarter outreach to them, he hired Stephen Bannon who runs a site called Breitbart where members of the Alt Right, which is what the American Nazi movement is calling itself these days, get to vent. That’s because to Trump and his followers, we’re dumb. His campaign manager Stephen Bannon believes that Hispanics are dumb too. They weren’t supposed to notice that an ad that Trump put up cited an anti-immigration outfit, Center for Immigration Studies, that’s aligned with the Eugenics movement.[5]

On August 24,it was announced that Trump wants Hispanics to own homes. If he is serious he would approve of the federal government’s suit against Home Loans Auditors,Century Law Center,SOE Assitance Center for overcharging Hispanics.[6] His associates can take time off from listening to “Die Fahne Hoch” to provide their candidate with research from The Center For Responsible Lending, which documents the robbing of Blacks by banks. But they won’t look at the documentation because they believe that Blacks and Hispanics are dumb.Even one of his sidekick thugs, who has been dignified by CNN as a pundit, Cori Lewandowski, who is allowed to trash Blacks with fake statistics, while Anderson Cooper stands there looking stupid, believes that he is smarter than the president of the United States. Cori and his boss want to see the president’s Harvard transcripts. So does their Alt Right campaign associate, Bannon. Here are some of the uplifting and dignified comments from eloquent members of the master race that appear on the site run by Trump’s new campaign manager Bannon:

From “ResistandRebel”: “It is hilarious how butthurt the feral negro’s (sic) are about a few dead mongrels! It is even more hilarious how butthurt they are all the time, even with affirmative action, all the free shlt, and their own separate everything! LOL! I guess I would be too if my family tree was made up of a bunch of mongrel, spear chucking monkey losers!!!”

Reply from “DefiantDeity”:

“Exactly who are the but hurt ones here? They act like the mental midgets they are as soon as one of their own mentally challenged members gets gunned down for being an idiot. I celebrated with some alcohol when Zimmerman was found not guilty and I celebrate every time one of these mongoloids are shot by cops. There are a lot more of us Americans than there are people in BLM. Designate them a terror group and wipe them off the planet overnight. “

Comment from “Paul Kersey”:

“They know that White people are superior. They wine (sic) about it all the time and want to kill us because of it. They know they come from jungle savages and will never be equal to us so they destroy everything we create.”[7]

Gullible Whites, the perennial suckers, who believe that a billionaire has their interests at heart always fall for the protection racket that the GOP runs when it finds itself slipping in the polls. After Roger Ailes, another Trump ally, put up the Willie Horton ad about a Black rapist who sexually assaulted a White woman–White women are the safest demographic in the country by the way—he saw his client George Bush’s percentage points soar by 20% among white males in the South. And so Trump, down in the polls, is peddling the same old shit. And the media that fell out with him for a while after he defamed the Khans are back on board now that he’s hired Kelly Ann Conway, who has made homophobic remarks about lesbians and Gays. [8] Dan Rather and Joan Walsh praised this move.

Next to Joy Reid, and Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow is the most serious of MSNBC’s journalists, yet she seemed to praise Kelly Ann Conway as well. Moreover, none of the media women have the courage to support their sisters, who say they’ve been assaulted sexually by Trump. If he were Black, his alleged sexual assaults would be looped by the same media women, who are submissive to instructions from their patriarchal bosses. In the next issue of Konch, I’m printing an exclusive interview with the attorney for one of the women. She says that there are more.

I have compiled a large amount of research about how the policies of the credit and banking system have depressed the assets of Blacks since Reconstruction. It’s still going on.[9] The Times even report loan officers using the kind of language that can be found at Stephen Bannon’s Breitbart, when referring to Blacks.

“As she describes it, Beth Jacobson and her fellow loan officers at Wells Fargo Bank ‘rode the stagecoach from hell’ for a decade, systematically singling out blacks in Baltimore and suburban Maryland for high-interest subprime mortgages.

“These loans, Baltimore officials have claimed in a federal lawsuit against Wells Fargo, tipped hundreds of homeowners into foreclosure and cost the city tens of millions of dollars in taxes and city services.

“Wells Fargo, Ms. Jacobson said in an interview, saw the black community as fertile ground for subprime mortgages, as working-class blacks were hungry to be a part of the nation’s home-owning mania. Loan officers, she said, pushed customers who could have qualified for prime loans into subprime mortgages. Another loan officer stated in an affidavit filed last week that employees had referred to blacks as ‘mud people’ and to subprime lending as ‘ghetto loans.’”[10] The Times reports that Trump is heavily in debt to the Bank of China and Goldman Sachs[11].Trump is in debt to Goldman Sachs, Blacks get subprime loans from Goldman Sachs.[12]

If he aspires to be the White savior, like those in literature and the movies, who swoop in to rescue downtrodden Blacks, he could introduce some Black entrepreneurs to some of his creditors and persuade them to give them the kind of art of the deal that he and others receive because they are wealthy, White and male. In his Fredericksburg, Virginia speech made on August 20, 2016, he promised to aid 2.5 million Black entrepreneurs. If he is serious about helping the poor Blacks who don’t have it together, according to him, he’d insist that Blacks have the same access to capital as he. Black entrepreneurs above ground and those whose talents are often wasted in the underground economy, which results in the high homicide rates in some cities as competing drugs gangs fight over turfs,[13]can create jobs. The media, in order to serve up Blacks as “ jungle savages,” as entertainment for their consumers, rarely report that most of these shootings are about commerce.[14]They don’t even have to inherit millions from their fathers. They just need the kind banking and credit affirmative action that Trump gets.When the legitimate avenues for acquiring assets are shut off from an ethnic group, they resort to the underground economy, though Blacks were never able to control the police, the judges and the D.A.s as well as white ethnic gangs. During the prohibition period warfare between Irish, Italian and Jewish gangsters left hundreds killed in the streets.

So nobody’s listening to Trump except Blacks whose opinion lie far out on the desert island of Black opinion. They and his Hispanic fans have to meet with his Trumpness and the women who surround him, who resemble Dracula’s escorts, in Trump Tower. Next time CNN airs the views of those Black preachers who support Trump, they should ask how much Trump is paying them.

On February 22, 2016, Joe Scarborough asked Eugene Robinson what Trump could do to reach Black people. He said that he should denounce David Duke. Denounce David Duke? Doesn’t the “Pulitzer Prize Winning” journalist know that Trump’s new campaign manager Stephen Bannon is a David Duke think-a-like? No, Trump can reach Black people by ending the discrimination against Blacks practiced by the credit system and advocate that those who headed the criminal banks that depleted one half of the assets owned by Blacks should be jailed, as well as those who advance pay day loan scams that charge the poor up to 300% interest. But he won’t do that because his outreach is a campaign stunt designed by Kelly Ann Conway.

Finally, Trump, Lewandowski, and Bannon aren’t the first to underestimate the intelligence of Blacks. Jefferson Davis believed that Blacks were so stupid that he and his generals felt they could discuss Confederate battle plans in the presence of the blacks who were serving them. His coachman and nanny were Union spies.

Notes.

[1]Wikipedia One of the more prevalent claims is that Buffalo wings were first prepared at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, by Teressa Bellissimo,[3][4] who owned the bar with husband Frank. Several versions of the story have been circulated by the Bellissimo family and others…However, a long article about the Anchor Bar in a local newspaper in 1969 does not mention Buffalo wings.[7]

Another claim is that a man named John Young served chicken wings in a special “mambo sauce” at his Buffalo restaurant in the mid-1960s. His wings were breaded. Young had registered the name of his restaurant, John Young’s Wings ‘n Things, at the county courthouse before leaving Buffalo in 1970.[2][3][8]

Kelly Ann Conway has long been involved in conservative politics, mostly as a pollster working with conservative groups like the NRA, Family Research Council and Republican candidates like Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann.

Conway once said that people “don’t want their kids looking at a cartoon with a bunch of lesbian mothers” and suggested the representation of same-sex parents in children’s programming was a “corrupting” influence.” She also once argued that “political correctness” could create a situation where there were “air traffic controllers who don’t speak great English” leading to “two planes crashing in the sky.”
