Most Idiotic Quotes by Trump Supporters From the Washington/Moonie Times’ Article on Virginia “gone blue”

It’s always fun actually hearing from Trump supporters, whether on video (see here and here, for instance) or in the newspaper. For instance, check out yesterday’s Washington/Moonie Times’ article, “Donald Trump battles to retake Virginia, once-reliably red state gone blue,” for some doozies. Get ready for your IQ to go down a few points and your blood pressure to rise a few…

Let’s start with this idiotic comment by a Trump supporter: “‘It makes me absolutely sick that most Virginia goes red and a few cities will decide which way it goes,’ said Billy Scogin, 36, a maintenance worker.” So…basically, this Trump supporter is angry because “a few cities” in Virginia vote Democratic? In fact, if you check out the State Board of Elections, you’ll see that Democrats tend to win most cities in Virginia (often by “yuge” margins), as well as just about anywhere that’s densely populated and/or diverse (e.g., Fairfax County, Prince William County, Arlington County, Henrico County, Loudoun County, Hampton City, Newport News, Richmond City, etc.).

As for Republicans, they tend to win the sparsely-populated rural parts of the state. Which is fine, but that’s totally different than the Trump supporter’s claim about “a few cities” overwhelming the rest of Virginia. And even if that WERE the case…so what? The point is, if the majority of Virginians lived in cities and voted heavily Democratic, would that be a bad thing? Of course not; to the contrary, it’s called “democracy.” Or maybe the “problem” is that cities and densely-populated suburbs tend to have a lot of Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans and other diverse population groups? Hmmmm.

Another moronic quote along these same lines comes from a Trump-supporting banker in Fauquier County, who says that Trump’s “got to get his feet in the cities and the suburbs…It’s the only thing Hillary has.” Again, add up the cities and suburbs of Virginia and what do you get? The (large) majority of Virginia’s population, of course. In short, the “only thing Hillary has” are the parts of Virginia – the “urban/suburban crescent” from Hampton Roads to Richmond to Northern Virginia, for instance – with most of the people. Terrible, eh? 😉

Need more Trump supporter idiocy? How about this doozy (“The media, in my opinion, has become a propaganda tool for the Democrats”) or this one (“I’m worried that we are going to lose some of our rights if the Democrats get it”) or this one (“Tammy Zacofsky, a 49-year-old baker, said she voted twice for Mr. Obama but switched her registration from Democrat to Republican because of Mr. Trump.”)?

So…on the first one, in fact Donald Trump is largely a creation of the media, wouldn’t be anywhere without them. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton “drew the most negative coverage of any other candidate.” So much for that theory; try the complete opposite.

On the second quote, I’d love to hear which rights we’re going to lose if Democrats win the White House, as opposed to the many rights we’d lose if Trump were elected (god forbid). Uhhhhh.

Finally, that last one about changing voter registration from Democrat to Republican is just hilarious, given that Virginia doesn’t have voter registration by party. Plus, seriously? This person voted for Obama twice (she claims “temporary insanity”) and is now voting for Trump? I’d say she was perfectly sane in 2008 and 2012; the question is what happened to her since then?

Anyway, these are some of Trump’s Virginia supporters highlighted by the Washington/Moonie Times. Not to say that every Clinton supporter is a genius, but these Trump folks are just…wow.

    Maybe in terms of area in square miles on the map that go red, Trump will win those — but actual voters? That’s another story.

    Who’s running the contest for the most insane remarks or headlines of this election? Here’s a new one, courtesy of Loudoun Times Mirror:
    “Trump campaign operative suggests Clinton will die during first year in office”

    • Yeah, that one’s certainly “up there” in the insane Trump supporters and/or employees category!

  • Beyer Denounces Science Committee Republicans’ Clinton Subpoenas

    August 22, 2016 (Washington, DC) – Congressman Don Beyer, the Ranking Member on the House Science Subcommittee for Oversight, strongly condemned the Committee’s issuance of subpoenas to private server companies related to Sec. Clinton’s email server.

    “This is a wasteful use of taxpayer dollars by Chairman Smith and the Science Committee Republicans for blatantly partisan purposes,” said Rep. Beyer. “The House Science Committee must focus on its role promoting science and ensuring America is the global leader in research and development, rather than scoring cheap political points with the umpteenth investigation of this issue.”

    Sec. Clinton’s servers have already been thoroughly investigated by the House Benghazi Committee, which expended millions of taxpayer dollars on an inquiry which revealed no evidence of illegal activity.

  • CAIR Demands Firing of Trump Staffers Who Posted Racist, Anti-Muslim, Anti-Mexican Messages Online

    Muslim civil rights group calls on GOP presidential candidate to ‘reexamine’ his own bigoted views and policies

    (WASHINGTON, D.C., 8/22/16) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today demanded that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump fire paid campaign staffers who have posted racist, anti-Muslim and anti-Mexican messages on their personal social media accounts.

    CAIR, the nation’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, also called on Trump to “reexamine” his own bigoted views and policies that attracted the racist staffers to his campaign in the first place.

    A report by the Associated Press found Trump staffers who posted “that Muslims are unfit to be U.S. citizens, mocked how Mexicans talk, called for Secretary of State John Kerry to be hanged and stated their readiness for a possible civil war.”

    AP noted that seven Trump staffers “expressed views that were overtly racially charged, supportive of violent actions or broadly hostile to Muslims.” A similar AP review of public social media accounts of Hillary Clinton’s larger campaign staff found nothing as offensive.

    According to AP: “A graphic designer for Trump’s advance team approvingly posted video of a black man eating fried chicken and criticizing fellow blacks for ignorance, irresponsibility and having too many children. A Trump field organizer in Virginia declared that Muslims were seeking to impose Sharia law in America and that ‘those who understand Islam for what it is are gearing up for the fight.'”

    One former Trump staffer posted an image stating: “We need Islam control, not gun control.”

    “Any person currently employed by the Trump campaign who has expressed racist or bigoted views should be fired,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “To keep individuals holding such intolerant views on the campaign staff would indicate an acceptance of their bigotry and racism.”

    He added: “The fact that so many racists and Islamophobes seem to be attracted to Mr. Trump’s campaign demonstrates the need for him to reexamine his own bigoted views and policies.”

    Awad noted that CAIR said Trump’s newly-announced proposal to subject immigrants to an ideological “test” would be a violation of American values.

    CAIR also challenged Trump to repudiate a top adviser, who spoke at the Republican convention and was considered as a vice presidential pick, for stating in an address to an anti-Muslim hate group that Islam is a “cancer” and not a real religion.

    In July, CAIR demanded that Donald Trump apologize for disparaging the parents of a Muslim who died while serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq.

    The Washington-based civil rights organization has previously spoken out against Trump’s apparent support for an Islamophobic town hall question and demanded that Trump “stop the bigotry” after he falsely claimed on Fox News that assimilation of American Muslims is “pretty close” to nonexistent and that a “percentage” of American Muslims “want to do what this maniac did in Orlando.”

    Earlier this year, CAIR said Donald Trump’s continued use of a debunked myth about U.S. Gen. John Pershing executing Muslim prisoners in the Philippines using bullets dipped in pig’s blood was endangering ordinary American Muslims who were already facing a surge in hate.

    CAIR stated that Trump’s pig’s blood claim and other instances of his Islamophobic rhetoric, including his calling for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States, his false claim that “Islam hates us,” his refusal to rule out special IDs for American Muslims, and his willingness to consider closing down American mosques place millions of innocent, law-abiding citizens in the American Muslim community at risk.

    CAIR has reported an unprecedented spike in anti-Muslim incidents nationwide since Trump’s bigoted call for a complete ban on Muslims entering the United States.

    The Washington-based Muslim civil rights group is asking Muslim community members to report any bias incidents to police and to CAIR’s Civil Rights Department at 202-742-6420 or by filing a report at: http://www.cair.com/civil-rights/report-an-incident/view/form.html

    CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

    La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
