You Lie! about Violence by Black Americans

November 23, 2015

To defend his supporters who roughed up a Black lives Matter activist at a Trump rally, Trump has tweeted wildly inaccurate and apparently trumped up statistics (found on a White nationalist Website, as it turns out) of how many white people have been killed by black people.

Neither the Republican Party establishment nor Republican voters will call a halt to Trump’s racism or his lies that ultimately instigate violence against people of color.

Disinformation has become a standard tool of Republicans. Democracy requires an informed electorate, and this kind of undermining of democracy through large-scale lying is another of the psychopathologies of American democracy, beginning historically with the need to dehumanize indigenous people and slaves and to incite violence against them.

Is Trump’s ego devoid of moral values, or will he restrain himself after he wins the nomination?

From → lies, Republicans, Trump
