Donald Trump better hope “some of them [Mexican immigrants], I assume, are good people” since he must employ a lot of them in his casinos and residential and office properties.
Given his increasingly bizarre statements and increasing popularity, it can’t be said he lacks appeal for a significant portion of right-wing, evangelical, fear-mongering, brainwashed Republicans. He certainly excels in self-promotion, a prerequisite to elective office.
I’m convinced he represents the latest of the lamentations from the political right (perhaps from a large segment of all older white people) stemming from the loss of their perceived “white privilege.”
Look at the nonsense over the Confederate battle flag — just so we’re clear here, the South lost! These people simply wish to return to simpler times. You know, when separate but (wink, wink) equal was the law, when colored people knew their place and who their betters were (women knew their place, too, at home, barefoot, pregnant, chained to the stove), when it was OK to cram a religion down people’s throats, as long as it’s Christianity.

Colored people and women have no business voting, right? Our worshipped “framers” didn’t think so.
