The action taken by Hillary and her campaign after so much inactivity is unusual. No one thought that she had to do much as Trump seems to be tanking a bit. But instead of letting The Donald hang himself, she has attacked him in a surprising way.
Donald Trump’s campaign is responding to what it calls Hillary Clinton’s “disgraceful new ad,” which the former secretary of state posted to Twitter on Thursday, attempting to link Trump to white supremacists and the KKK.
As someone who is a self-proclaimed disciple of the White Supremacist Margret Sanger, this seems to be treading into dangerous waters for Hillary. Not to mention her close friend and supporter, Robert Byrd was a Klan member.
But, there has been a backlash to this video. It may have cost Hillary in the end. But the one person that has been the most vocal is the black pastor, Mark Burns.
“Hillary Clinton and her campaign went to a disgusting new low today as they released a video tying the Trump Campaign with horrific racial images. This type of rhetoric and repulsive advertising is revolting and completely beyond the pale,” stated Trump supporter Pastor Mark Burns. “I call on Hillary Clinton to disavow this video and her campaign for this sickening act that has no place in our world.”
The worst part of this is that the ad had no significant substance. Klan Members want fewer illegals and more jobs. This connection is not morally related. These people, though ignorant on the subject of biology and sociology, are not blind to the facts on this issue.
Because I love my children, and a Communist loves his children does not mean that deep down I am a Communist, it only means that I love my children.
Glad that Pastor Burns is brave enough to call this video what it is, and for standing against the pressure to denounce Trump.
Watch the video for yourself.
There’s a reason the most hateful fringe of the right wing is supporting Donald Trump.https://t.co/AqB3DM2m0N
