Trump’s Offer to Obama and Racism

Posted by Troy on 25th October 2012 in Current Events

The most famous birther, Donald Trump, has offered Obama $5,000,000 if he merely releases his student and passport records.

Of course, the reason Trump has done this is because he believes there is proof that Obama claimed to be a foreign exchange student to get into college for less money (that or he really was born in whatever country he claimed on his applications).  As a side benefit, if all the classes he took were communist type stuff or he got by with C-’s in everything, that would be alright too.

In the past, Obama has claimed that there is nothing embarrassing in his records and refused to release them on the grounds that the charge is ridiculous.

However, now there is money involved.  So, what will happen?  I believe Obama will not release his records, and he will not do so because there is something in there (whatever it is) that he doesn’t want people to see.  Let’s be honest, there’s nothing in there that has any bearing to anyone other than himself.  Someone may refuse to give up an e-mail password to protect the privacy of those who have written them.  There is no equivalent in this scenario.  The only person he could be defending is himself.  The only other possible reason to refuse the request is due to pride, “You can’t make me do it.”  $5,000,000 feeds a lot of people.  If someone can’t sallow their pride just a little, what’s their problem?

Question: a man has a gun to the head of a five-year-old little girl.  He says he will let her live if you do the “I’m a little tea cup” song and dance.  You believe 100% that he is a man of his word.  Would you do it?  You would.  Would you be furious at someone that didn’t because they would be damned if someone would force them to act like a fool?  You would.

How have Obama supporters responded?  Well, viciously against Trump.  I really don’t understand why.  He’s not forcing Obama to do a thing.  It reminds me of a show called “Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush.”  They would offer a contestant $5,000 to destroy their childhood teddybear or other sentimental thing.  You could have called the show “People will do anything for money.”  However, the host wasn’t the one that destroyed the teddybear.  That was the contestant, and that was a sign of their priorities.  I wouldn’t go around in drag, but if someone were to give $5,000,000 to charity if I did, I would gladly do it and do it with a sense of humor.

The next charge is that it’s racism.  How?  It just doesn’t work.  It’s definitely anti-Obamaism, but there’s a lot of that going around.  It’s just like when they talk about “dog whistle” language or systematic racism.  It’s so there, but you totally can’t see it man.  For instance, I hear Romney say, “Good morning,” and what I subliminally hear is “Let’s have us a lynchin’!”  That’s the charge.  Same thing with systematic racism which is to say that because blacks have a harder time securing financing in proportion to whites, this is a sign of systematic racism and has nothing to do with the larger fact that there are economic reasons which cause this to be.  Those who like to trot out racism as a defense or a guilt bat have resorted to this because racism is no where near the levels it was back in the 50s and 60s, so they have to change the definition to that of a thought crime, but even more so than that!  Instead, it’s a subliminal thought crime.  It’s a thought that you don’t even know you are thinking, and you should be ashamed!

Obama will not release his records.  He can hide behind pride or whatever, but the real reason is that he is hiding something.  If I had to guess, it’s all three: he lied to enhance his chances of admission and scholarships, he got poor grades due to too much partying, and he took every class he could on subjects most people would steer clear of.  If we’re wrong, the Obama should release his records.  There would be no greater revenge than making Trump into a laughing stock and making him spend $5,000,000 to a charity.

Long Live the Constitution!
