So, who are we to think is the Silent Majority that stands with Donald Trump?

The Silent Majority for Trump has no room for ethnic minorities.

The Silent Majority for Trump doesn't allow African-Americans

As comedian Arthur Chu explains, “that “silent majority” sign is why many PoC are on edge a lot of the time”.

    There is room, plenty, if you believe in conservative principles…..but Sanders and Clinton’s handouts are a stronger pull. Truth hurts.

    1. J Clifford says:

      The truth is that Donald Trump has repeatedly associated with white supremacists, Frank.

      Yes, that does hurt.

    It is pretentious to judge people’s ethnic and ancestral geographic origins by skin color. It is time to rid our society of racism, particularly governmental racism.

    1. J Clifford says:

      Al, I don’t think that it’s pretentious to judge people’s ethnic and ancestral origins by skin color. It’s not a pretension.

      Pretentious:
      1. characterized by assumption of dignity or importance, especially when exaggerated or undeserved:
      a pretentious, self-important waiter.
      2. making an exaggerated outward show; ostentatious.
      3. full of pretense or pretension; having no factual basis; false.

      If what you mean by “governmental racism” is the disproportionate prosecution and punishment of African-Americans, including violent persecution by police, then I agree that this is an important goal. I don’t think that’s what you mean.

    The Silent Majority has a history of being subdued since this 1960’s. In their place has risen a group who believes it is superior to stupid ‘whites’ that give everything they have away. Believe it is their duty to “destroy the superiority of the whites”. Racists in the purist definition. To use reality as a rallying cry for sympathy from a perceived racial ‘giver’ is racist. For example: If more of one group commits crime and is incarcerated for it, that is because more of that group commits crime – not because they are of that group. Those in that group who do NOT commit crime are simply different. Those that ‘give’ are of a different ethic group, not ethnic group. Even though the ethic group that has been ‘giving’ still does, it may not mean it is possible to continue to do so. After all, once taken away, what is there to replace it – nothing. The ethic group, or silent majority, are standing up to be counted, finally. They are not an ethnic or racist group, but of all races who are now being squeezed out by those who they gave to.

      I googled “destroy the superiority of the whites” — nobody has written this “quote” but you. The entirety of what you write is a description of what is going on in your head.

        The interview was on FOX news 2 days ago. An interview with a young African woman activist with “Black Lives Matter”. And she was very sincere in her belief that white supremacy needs to be eradicated. You know, that group that accosted Bernie Sanders in one of his first California rallies?

        This contributes heavily to the recent unrest concerning blacks being shot ‘unarmed’. Certain situations arise more often when they carry realistic toy guns in shady activities.

    HaHaHa! oh my, now we are resorting to searching through rally pictures to try and discredit Trump? Smells like desperation to me. It’s ok my libertarian brethren! You are all welcome to jump aboard the TRUMP TRAIN whenever your ready! Nobody is going to judge you. I mean just look at your candidate pool….. Full of career politicians trying to get to where Trump is already at. Willing to say anything to get your votes. Only to accomplish some to none of what they said they would. All of them on the take from special interests, and lobbyists. Able to look the American public straight in the eye and blatantly lie with no conviction about it. Flip flopping on issue after issue depending on which opinion will satisfy the audience on hand. No morals of loyalty to stand on. Fake cardboard cutouts. Oh, and I’m referring to ALL CANDIDATES besides Donald Trump. Republican, and democratic. Trump will be the next president because he is the only chance we have of a real change. He’s not swayed by money, establishment, or political aspirations. He doesn’t really seem to care what anybody else thinks about his position. He doesn’t have to. Thereby giving him the ability to follow through with his ideas. Aren’t you guys sick of the status quo? Is it working for you? If it is then you my friends are the true silent minority.

    1. J Clifford says:

      John, if by “status quo” you mean freedom of religion, which Donald Trump opposes, then yes I am for the status quo. If you mean the protection by the Bill of Rights from cruel and unusual forms of punishment, then yes I am for the status quo. Donald Trump is for torturing people even when there is no purpose to the torture, when it is simply to cause pain. That is what Donald Trump himself has stated. Donald Trump is for killing the family members of people suspected of crimes. That is not a change to the status quo that I am willing to support. Donald Trump celebrates people who engage in mob violence against African-Americans. There can be positive changes to the status quo. Donald Trump is not a candidate who is supporting positive change.

      1. ella says:

        Where have you ever seen or heard of “mob violence” against African-Americans in the past 40 years or more? And haven’t you got that in reverse? Mob violence has been by African-Americans. very much so in the news.

    2. ella says:

      Trump supports freedom of religion, just not those who want to destroy the peace of Americans by killing and terrorizing them. As distasteful as torture is, it is a fact that people who engage in war activities are trained to expect it before giving any information. To me that is a crudity of war, but if both sides do not participate in it, then the abstaining side is considered weak. The nation has been run by people who only see their own ambitions for far too long. In their blind drive for greed and power they have driven the American people into a corner and Trump offers a peaceful way out. Not a politician who just repeats worn out, canned speeches that the populace is supposed to respond to. That does not work any more.

      1. J Clifford says:

        Ella, any person who “supports freedom of religion, just not those…” actually doesn’t support freedom of religion.

        Can you tell me of any war that was lost because one side refused to commit torture?

        There is no evidence that torture provides reliable information, Ella.

        You like to talk about your Christian values, Ella, but here you are, promoting torture. Those are not values I’m impressed with.

  5. J Clifford says:

    With the comments to this article, the hypothesis that “The Silent Majority” refers to angry white racists is confirmed.

  6. Korky Day says:

    The top photo appears to have a mixed-race Black on the right in front.
    The second photo I think includes Trump’s son-in-law, who is Jewish (Asian).
    The third photo appears to include a dark-skinned Black.
    I’ve watched many YouTube videos of his rallies and they almost always include non-Whites.
    I’m part Asian.

    In your comment following the article, J Clifford, you libel Donald Trump in ways typical of his careless, ignorant critics.
    I critique him with care and intelligence. He has faults, but you didn’t clearly accuse him of them.
    You supply no quotes, so the wise reader will ignore your libels.
    Donald Trump doesn’t sue you because Irregular Times has too few readers.
