Donald Trump 2016: Racist groups traffic spike | POLITICO


“Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that,” said Stormfront founder Don Black, who reports additional listeners and call volume to his phone-in radio show, in addition to the site’s traffic bump. Black predicts that the white nationalist forces set in motion by Trump will be a legacy that outlives the businessman’s political career. “He’s certainly creating a movement that will continue independently of him even if he does fold at some point.”

But its leaders consistently say that Trump’s rhetoric about minority groups has successfully tapped into simmering racial resentments long ignored by mainstream politicians and that he has brought more attention to their agenda than any American political figure in years. It is a development many of them see as a golden opportunity.

One Response to Donald Trump 2016: Racist groups traffic spike | POLITICO

  1. Dale Benjamin Drakeford says:

    See my new book POWER POSITIVE: Moments That Document Nicely Why You Must Invest Your Vote In Bernie Sanders (Trump, Carson, Fiorina, Paul…) and hear agin from the people that the establishment is using revolutionary and authentic political talk to fuel their agenda of making something else into what already is complete. Trump has only spoke his position, and that is opposed to the heir apparents and appointed Bush and Clinton school of current rhetoric politicians that say what they think you want to hear (when YOU represent the 51% majority they need to get elected). What trump and these others have done, is speak to what they actually think is the reality and the establishment cannot handle that people have embraced it. “Racist” is unfair interpretation of what Trump has said. If some movement is empowered by his words, look to the movement, not to the candidate. the establisment also tried to bring Sanders down with a “Socialist” label. Again the people have recognized it as establishment babble designed to divert or compromise or contaminate the message. Rand was tagged a “Libertarian,” and so on by the clubbers looking to keep their easy paycheck intact. Let us not be “Bamboozled” forever.
