Donald Trump, presumptive GOP nominee for president, has again grabbed headlines for blunt remarks about the judge presiding over the lawsuit against Trump University.
Trump referred to Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel’s Mexican ethnicity, and Democrats, their allies in media, and some sensitive Republicans were aghast.
Most Americans, I think, could care less. Fact is, Trump is simply handing Democrats’ tactics right back to them.
Start with the actual actors in the lawsuit and move on to the state of the nation.
The lawsuit is a Democrat creation purely for political reasons, just as the witch hunt against Texas Gov. Rick Perry was. Weaponizing government against people is a prized tactic in the Clinton camp, and the Clinton camp has run this country under President Barack Obama since he took office. Meanwhile, Obama takes to the stump around the world to pump Hillary’s cause, reminding us all that we currently have a sitting president who doesn’t hesitate to bully.
Rarely if ever has a president campaigned so actively while he held office. Obama even blocked release of some of Mrs. Clinton’s emails—on trade, mind you, not national security—until after the election to protect her.
All this aside, Democrats routinely appeal to potential voters based on their ethnicity. Or gender. Or whatever. Democrats are the great Balkanizers nowadays, fully realizing that to divide is to conquer.
In 2010 Dems in control of Congress actually invited then-president of Mexico Felipe Calderon to address the nation. Calderon held nothing back, attacking the US for attempting to pass laws to do something about the millions of people who either come from or through Mexico to the US and break federal law.
Mrs. Clinton has made it clear she will go one better than Obama on amnesty. What is also clear, judging court rulings, is she has admitted she will break federal law to do that.
Meanwhile, school kids in America can’t wear a t-shirt with a US flag on it when Mexican students decide to celebrate a holiday unique to their heritage. Mrs. Clinton’s husband appointed the judge in that case, and once again, the First Amendment to the US Constitution was thoroughly trashed.
Ethnicity seems to be a passion for Democrats appointed by Clinton and Obama. Consider Supreme Court associate justice Sonia Sotomayor whose ethnicity is American—she was born in Puerto Rico. But Sotomayor repeatedly claims her ethnicity makes her a guru of justice. In one speech, she said:
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”
Meanwhile, illegal traffic is again increasing at the southern border.
Concurrently, at every Trump rally, rioters wave Mexican flags and burn the US flag, often attacking rally-goers. There goes the First Amendment again.
Writing for The Spectator, Jeffrey Lord who is a Trump supporter, said the Trump U case is “rigged.” Lord provides a breakdown of reasons he declares it rigged, and it’s hard to dispute his claim. Just as with the case against Gibson Guitars on the federal level, Democrats are targeting someone who opposes their views or policies.
When a judge releases records to the public that could damage a candidate, then happens to reseal them saying he “mistakenly” released them—it is very hard to believe in that judge’s objectivity. Moreover the judge has, as Lord pointed out, received awards from ethnic groups he belongs to. Judge Curiel made his ethnicity a big deal before Trump ever considered it.
Imagine the furor if a judge belonged to a “Caucasian” bar association. Or like that.
Trump is just handing Democrats what they’ve been handing us for years. All the players involved in this lawsuit are cogs in the Democrats’ attack machine. Read the piece Lord wrote because the national evening newscast probably won’t share exactly who did what to launch the latest witch hunt on a Republican.
Perhaps Dems could take a look at one of the Clinton’s favorite for-profit schools, Laureate Education. There’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. Matter of fact, it already has and Mr. Clinton is millions richer. Laureate did well with millions of taxpayer money Mrs. Clinton directed to the school.
Trump U? No federal funding.
