Trump Likened To Hitler For Saying Black Kids Ought To Able To Walk To School Without Getting Shot


You know we’re nearing peak insanity levels when the Hitler comparisons start flying.

[Ed; We gotta kick in our 2 cents here.

Most of you drive cars. 

Most cars weigh between 3000 to 4000 lbs. How many of you, at a red light, have had a street person stagger out in front of you and yell at you, pound on your hood, or head for your window advertising evil intent?

Your response was?

1: You put the car into low gear and ran the person over.
2: You rolled up the windows, locked the doors, and at most called 911 on your cell phone.

If you chose solution #1 you would have won the argument, short term. No question. 2 tons of car even at only 5 to 10 miles an hour is about as lethal a moving projectile response as one can imagine.

However, for whatever reason, you didn't run that person down.

So what makes anyone think you would behave any differently with a loaded gun?

Moral? Only the overwhelming majority of people who picked response #2 will be adversely affected by more gun control laws, NOT the criminals who are shooting kids.]

Via WSJ:

Hillary Clinton tried to tar Donald Trump as a racist last week by associating him with the “alt-right.” Yet it is Mr. Trump who has decried the loss of black life to violent crime—and has promptly been declared biased for doing so. Whether intentionally or not, Mr. Trump has exposed the hypocrisy of the Black Lives Matter movement and its allies.

Speaking in West Bend, Wis., on Aug. 16, only days after the recent riots in Milwaukee, Mr. Trump observed that during “the last 72 hours . . . another nine were killed in Chicago and another 46 were wounded.” The victims, as in other cities with rising crime, were overwhelmingly black.

Bringing safety to inner-city residents should be a top presidential priority, Mr. Trump said: “Our job is to make life more comfortable for the African-American parent who wants their kids to be able to safely walk the streets and walk to school. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school.” Mr. Trump promised to restore law and order “for the sake of all, but most especially for the sake of those living in the affected communities.”

The reaction was swift. The progressive website Crooks and Liars deemed Mr. Trump’s speech a “mashup of Hitler and George Wallace. ”On CNN the activist and former Obama adviser Van Jones called it “despicable” and “shocking in its divisiveness.” Historian Josh Zeitz told USA Today that “the term law and order in modern American politics is, ipso facto, a racially tinged term.”

Thank you WSJ and Zip.

It's the destructive policies of Trump's detractors here who continue to get kids shot.
