FoxNews.com reports that
John Legend said that President Trump needs to speak out against hateful ideology, and “needs to apologize for demonizing Muslims” after 50 people were killed at mosque shootings in New Zealand on Friday.
The singer, in an interview published by NowThis on Sunday, said that, following shootings that occurred in Christchurch, in which dozens were killed and injured, the president owes an apology.
“He needs to apologize for demonizing Muslims,” Legend said. “He needs to apologize for demonizing brown people who have tried to come here and have a better life. He characterizes their desire to come here and work and feed their family as an invasion.”
White House says enough is enough after Trump’s rhetoric is blamed for New Zealand massacre
Following the massacre, Trump said the attacks were a “horrible, horrible thing,” but later said that illegal immigrants seeking to enter the U.S. are part of an “invasion.”
“When people of such influence and such stature are endorsing such a hateful, evil ideology, it emboldens those who will go out and do something really evil and nasty, like what happened in New Zealand,” Legend said. “We need the president to speak out against it.”
Legend, 40, said Trump has “been wrong using this rhetoric and anyone who’s encouraged him or cheered him on in this kind of rhetoric needs to apologize as well.”
“They need to make it clear that it’s not acceptable for us to use this kind of violent rhetoric that leads to this kind of violent action,” the “All of Me” singer told the news outlet.
He added that white nationalism is a “global threat” which has inspiration “coming from America right now, and the American president. Our American president needs to say, ‘This is evil. I don’t endorse it. I don’t embrace it. I’m not winking at it. I’m not equivocating about it. This is evil and I speak out against it.'”
The alleged gunman of the attack called Trump “a symbol of renewed white identity,” but Trump downplayed any threat posed by white nationalism.
He said he didn’t believe white nationalism was a rising threat around the world, and said: “I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess. … If you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that’s the case. I don’t know enough about it yet. But it’s certainly a terrible thing.”
A small group of nutjobs CAN cause a lot of very, very serious problems.
Just look at the problems being caused by the House Democrats.
But, I digress.
White Nationalism is the offense du jour being touted by the Far Left Democratic Party.
What ever happened to the words “psychopath” and “nutjob” to describe an animal like the mass murdered in New Zealand?
To counter-balance the claims of a “severe” threat of “White Nationalists” springing up all over the world, I was going to list all of the attacks by Radical Islamists since the 1970s, a list found, believe or not, on the Liberal online “source for all things” Wikipedia.
However, it was so dadblamed long, it would have made my daily offering resemble a copy of “War and Peace”.
Here is a link to that list of atrocities committed by radical followers of “The Religion of Peace.
Liberals are so desperate to somehow get Trump out of office that they are literally throwing anything and everything at him, including accusing him of being insensitive to Muslims and supporting the behavior they are referring to a “White Nationalism”.
This kind of attack is nothing new.
In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.
From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, Including particularly The New Bolsheviks of the Far Left Democratic Party Obama and all of their “useful idiots” in Hollywood and the Music Industry, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.
Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into the political party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.
What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.
While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.
Mow, they have upped the ante by calling those Americans of the Caucasian Persuasion, like President Donald J. Trump, who believe in American Exceptionalism, “White Nationalists”.
The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.
By the way, according to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.
In other words, being guilty of “patriotism”, i.e., believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in Traditional American Faith and Values.
During the 8 long years of the Obama Presidency, children and young adults attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and that being a patriot was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.
Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others and is worthy of national pride in it.
And, since we “straight white males” are a very big voting bloc, “The Smartest People in the Room”, the brain-trust of the Democratic Party, including their Radical Hispanic Chairman, Tom Perez, are sentencing themselves to failure for the next several national elections….no matter how much fake news and propaganda idiots like John Legend and the rest of those who are paid to entertain us attempt to disseminate.
You would have thought that they would have learned something from the night of November 8, 2016.
But, like comedian Ron White says,
You can’t fix stupid.
