|| By FITSNEWS || GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump doesn’t like Mexicans and Muslims.

Well, that’s not exactly true … to be precise, Trump has bashed certain segments of those populations in advancing his views on illegal immigration and the securing of domestic tranquility.

Have his criticisms found a receptive audience?  Um, yes.

Trump is the runaway frontrunner for the “Republican” presidential nomination, and several polls have him emerging victorious in a general election against the full spectrum of potential Democratic presidential nominees.  That’s a meteoric ascent under any circumstances, but it’s even more impressive given Trump’s untenable starting point in the GOP field.

His negatives were through the roof.  More than any other candidate,”Republican” voters said they would not consider supporting him in 2016.  But his outspokenness – at the expense of (mostly) Mexicans and Muslims – flipped that script.

Is “The Donald” planning to flip it again?

Trump will appear at two events in early-voting South Carolina this week which afford him the opportunity to make a potentially major pivot in his campaign for the presidency.

On Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. EDT (September 23), Trump will appear in Charleston to address the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce.  That evening at 6:00 p.m. EDT he will appear in the state capital of Columbia for a town hall meeting with Tim Scott, the first black “Republican” elected to the U.S. Senate since 1881.

Charleston, of course, is the site of the “Holy City Massacre” – a horrific racially motivated shooting earlier this year which inflamed racial tensions across the country (and understandably so).  Meanwhile Columbia is home to the S.C. State House – where the Confederate flag flew proudly until two months ago.

Trump’s schedule raises some interesting dynamics …

Does he play to the politically correct crowd?  Or does he exploit a potentially huge opening on the issues front …

According to the results of a Pew Center survey earlier this year, 69 percent of Americans said they wanted to “restrict and control” immigration rates – including 72 percent of whites, 66 percent of blacks, and 59 percent of Hispanics.  And that’s a fairly “left-loaded” reading of the question.

That means the issue Trump has used to galvanize GOP primary support has the potential to galvanize black voters as well.

We all know Barack Obama‘s presidency has been a disaster for black Americans – and his mass amnesty provisions (which became law after the latest “Republican” capitulation) will only hasten their economic deterioration.

“The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low-skilled labor market for both African-Americans and illegal immigrants,” wrote Peter Kirsanow, a black attorney on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in a 2013 letter to the Congressional Black Caucus. “The answer is no.”

He’s not the only one who thinks so …

“Mass immigration and amnesty puts African-Americans from all walks of life out of work and suppresses wages, causing them to compete with aliens willing to work in poorer working conditions for cheaper pay,” the Black American Leadership Alliance noted in protesting a 2013 immigration bill supported by, among others, liberal U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.

Unlike Graham and Rubio, Scott voted against that legislation.  Think that will come up during his town hall chat with Trump? 

It should …

One veteran Washington, D.C. consultant told us months ago they could sum up Trump’s general election viability in three words.

“Black hates brown,” they said.

Blunt?  Yes.  Politically incorrect.  Clearly.

But if Trump can begin staking out the roots of such a strategy we could be looking at the most ingenious example of political triangulation in American history.

They had low skilled jobs during slavery. Wouldn’t high skilled jobs be better?

It’s not that Trump dislikes any ethnicity or subculture. He does not like crime.

But you ignorant liberal motherfuckers hate Americans, especially White Americans. While you suck the Dick of ISIS, and stay silent as WHITE police officers are shot down like dogs, because Obama has his tiny dick in your mouth.

I have held the theory for the last few years that the Democrat party was not big enough or smart enough to maintain two separate “favorite” minority groups. It just won’t work politically, there are two many opportunities to put the two groups at each other’s political throats.
And Trump is not perceived as being an old line Republican, and he will be able to attract some support from the black community. At this time, the Democrats seem to be going “all in” with the illegal immigrants, creating some concern in the black electorate.

Crumbling House of Cards September 21, 2015 at 6:26 pm

Very astute observation on your part.

And I think when you add homosexuals, radical feminists and Sharia-Muslims to their protected minority groups, they splinter, and the schism widens even more.

Jah September 21, 2015 at 6:45 pm

I agree with the Commenter, Erneba. I have also been saying for a long time the Democrat Party cannot please two diverse minority groups like the Blacks and Latinos.

It will always create problems and fierce tension. And it forces both sides to come out against the other when that’s not what we really want to do. Blacks are okay with the Latinos from Reagan’s Amnesty program and we hoped that was the last time but then George Bush open the gates to the Devil’s Pit and allowed in a bunch of Illegal Aliens simply because of his Wife, Laura is a Mexican.

And before that, Bill Clinton did it too and Obama just lost his stupid mind and allowed for a mass-scale of illegal aliens, not just from Mexico but all the criminal countries around Mexico and those in the Middle East and Africa.

America cannot sustain their prescence. America need to correct their patriotism. This is not contribution from foreign nationals. This is an INVASION.

And they simply don’t need those poor immigrants when they have the best in the Black Americans. Who upholds the America Culture identity? It’s us Blacks. When you watch your NFL football, who’s putting your butts in the seats? Blacks.

When you watch your NBA, who putting your butts in the seats? Blacks. When you watching a big-time Boxing match, who’s putting your butts in the seat? Blacks. When you watch your Olympic Track and Field, who’s putting your butts in the seat? Blacks.

And when you tally the revenue from all these sports that Blacks dominate in, it is the largest revenue-generating for the U.S. economy. Not only that, we’re able to make sales as far away to countries like China.

You got Black Gold with Black Americans. And they are a prominent Face of the American Culture because Sports plays a big role in our Culture.

You can’t get with the Mexican People. You can’t get that with the Asian People unless America considers Badminton and Chinese food to be the Face of America’ culture —— I doubt it. Pffft.

And you can’t get that with the Arabs and the Muslims.

So, America should be doing everything in its powers to help poor Black families get jobs with a living wage because out of our families is the next great Superstar Athlete that will make America Great and have the rest of the world silivating and wondering how America get such great Athletes and Appeal for their Sports, world-wide.

The only thing holding us back is racial attitudes from far-left White Liberals and the GOP establishment. They know flooding this country with illegal aliens will simply bring us down to a 3rd world status.

Do you see Soccer holding mass appeal like the NFL and NBA? Only to the Mexican People and the rest of the world that don’t have as gifted and talented Athletes like America. Even in Boxing and MMA, Blacks dominates the Mexicans and the competition and it’s making America a lot of money in revenue to see them perform.

It should be considered a blessing to see Blacks voting for Trump and 8n hope that Trump deport 30 million illegal aliens just to save us from being a 3rd world Nation when they think America is great to have 30 million illegal aliens in this country.

Wake up, America. God made this country great from the start. If Mexicans or any other foreign nationals was thought to play a big role in our development as a country, they would have been with us from the start.

Instead, they came after we built our country and became great and now think they was apart of it just because they think America is built by Immigrants.

Pffft! Pleased!

We were those People that built America and made her great and we have NEVER been an “immigrant People.” We was brought here against our will so we are no immigrants but the very People that put America on the map.

Stand with what you already have instead giving up on your country and give it away to foreign nationals.

What with Trump putting the “Republican” establishment into palpitations, and the Dims going in three different directions, liberal whites, blacks , and Hispanics. There are going to be political realignments like never before. Think about Trump and the Hispanics against Sanders and the blacks. Or Trump and the blacks against Sanders and the Hispanics. I can see the political elites having fits not being able to control the “little people”. This could get to be fun to watch. Trump and his money has changed the entire complexion of the race. The elites can’t buy him. Sanders is taking the parasite class off to left field with his everybody gets everything free line. I think I will make a batch of popcorn and open a beer. LOL

I would support Trump if he is nominee HOWEVER will be working hard for Rubio and making sure Bush is not the nominee next few months.Give him a look.Hope he learned from his Gang of 8 experience on immigration.Only talk in south Florida is Trump and Rubio.Bush is finished.

Still believe Trump is feeling out 3rd Party.
