Having designed a campaign that appeals to the most ignorant and xenophobic of right-wingers, maybe it shouldn’t come as a shock that Trump is now receiving additional support from a group of white supremacists who are campaigning and canvassing for the candidate.
A super PAC set up by a group of white nationalists in Iowa has funded robocalls across the state, recruiting voters to support “the one candidate who points out that we should accept immigrants who are good for America.”
“We don’t need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture. Vote Trump.”
The calls feature endorsements from a conservative Christian talk show nut and the head of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, who value the outwardly bigoted nature of the Trump campaign and urge listeners to see the merit in his policies and the blatant racism that pervades them.
While the mainstream media still shies away from labeling Trump an outright racist, his supporters sure haven’t, and here’s further proof some even love him for it. See for yourself.
Signs that it’s going to be a long time until the February caucuses in Iowa: I get a robo call from White Nationalists for Trump. Sigh.
