Stephen Miller must be tearing out his remaining strands of hair and pounding on the walls. Trump’s return to MAGA rallies was set to kick off with a night in Tulsa on June 19, Emancipation Day. The racist implications of this have had pundits doing flip flops for the past week. But Trump is at his golf club in New Jersey tonight, tweeting, and this is what just came down.

My best speculation is that Stephen Miller put this together, because what a terrific racist statement to make, nudge nudge wink wink, and then somebody actually explained to Trump what happened in Tulsa in 1921 and how abysmally the optics would play if he went through with this plan. The destruction of the Greenwood section of Tulsa was the the worst episode of racial violence ever seen in the country to that time and frankly, ever since as well.

Is it possible Trump will change the date of the RNC acceptance speech, set for the 60th anniversary of Ax Handle Sunday in Jacksonville, Florida? That was doubtlessly Stephen Miller’s work as well, and every bit as tone deaf and awful as the Juneteenth rally date.

Is Miller on the way out? He used to be good buds with Jared Kushner, surprisingly, the Nazi and the Jew. Maybe Kushner is playing palace intrigue and offing Miller to save daddy-in-law. Who knows? Trump world is imploding and maybe the crown prince is trying to save the day. Anything is possible.

I am glad he moved it. I think he was worried about the backlash and how a protest would play out on TV.

Oh, I daresay we may yet see that play out, Tin. But yeah, sticking to their guns would have had an ugly blowback.

He didn’t think about backlash until after it happened. In his universe, he’s always correct.

Ursula my dear, let me (sadly) correct you – the JEWISH Nazi who’s family are immigrants and all spoke Yiddish, and the other Jew. And, while we know what total absolute and unconditional evil loser dregs of humanity those two are, I feel it necessary (sadly, given that my people have produced those two vile monsters) to remind everyone that my people are also only 1/6 th of 1% of all of humanity, and yet we HAVE produced 29% of all Nobel Prize winners. Or more to the point, I personally have produced two wonderful incredible caring young men who… Read more »

“Many of my African American friends and supporters have reached out to suggest that we consider changing the date out…”

That equates to Diamond and Silk and I’m sure they were all too happy to help.

Careful, Miller is also Jewish as is Kushner. As much as I hate Miller, calling him a Nazi is over the top for me.

No one is more sensitive to the term “Nazi” than me, but after the family destruction they heaped on Hispanics over the past few years, any people who can support Trump after that, come VERY close, and that includes Miller, Kushner, Barr and pretty much most of the collaborators in Congress other than Mitt and Amash. And while I don’t hesitate to call them crypto-nazis, the reality is Trump is in every way Moussolini. He doesn’t know it, but that’s who he is a clone of.

“Bigoted assholes” is a little wordier but it can work as a better catch-all than “Nazi”. We should never allow ourselves to forget that this kind of abuse and genocide didn’t start with the Not-Sees (see “winning” the American West, Armenian Genocide) nor is it sadly likely to end there (see China’s current treatment of Uighurs, Middle East’s oppression of Yazidi population).

Joseph

Yeah, but the Nazis went further in their genocide than any other single group. And, we shouldn’t forget that the Nazis also targeted far more than just Jews: The Roma people (who’ve also seen a massive increase in violence directed at them by right-wing political groups throughout Eastern Europe) and gays and lesbians (gay men were put in labor camps while lesbians were routinely raped in “service to the Fatherland”; before the Nazis, Germany had one of the most thriving OPENLY gay and lesbian communities in the entire world) and Slavs (which makes Putin’s association very strange; certainly he has… Read more »

I have NEVER forgotten any of the above, Joseph. I would however argue that they only managed such through having 20th Century tech to make it all work. And you forgot one group in the Nazi targeted: the “mentally defective”. Dr. Asperger, for whom the syndrome is now unfortunately named, fed a lot of his patients to the camps and he was far from alone.

Holy crap Sharkster, I never knew that, and I know a TON about the Nazis and that era. Wow. New learning. Thank you for that Bare.

Bareshark

No problem, man. I read Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich cover to cover back in the day, which is how I knew what Joseph mentioned. As a probable person who has the aforementioned unfortunately named syndrome, my tidbit was something I ran into a few years ago when folks started taking a closer look at Asperger’s actual record as a doctor. There was talk of renaming the syndrome in light of the unearthed facts but nothing has yet to come of it.

As someone who is deeply ADHD, and has to work so hard to focus on long tedious important things that I can’t whip thru quickly, I sometimes find myself jealous of those around me who are Aspergers. Their (your?) ability to focus on one thing that must get done because its important is truly inspiring to me, and something of which I an be quite jealous. So here goes with my two alternate names: “Opposite of ADHD Syndrome” Catchy, eh? Or how about this winner: “Lucky bastards who can REALLY focus and thus achieve amazing things with their lives, Syndrome”… Read more »

Miller is what his grandparent’s generation would have called a Kapo ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapo_(concentration_camp) ) – while initially they served more as administrative functionaries the SS guards began assigning criminals to the role and got the results ( additional control via beatings and other mistreatment of their fellow prisoners) they hoped for.

Bwolofsky
Guest

Absolutely correct. He would have made an excellent kapo, beause he would have relished the role. The POS would have sent his own parents to the chambers. He is human garbage. Actually, I genuinely wonder if there is something very wrong with him. Like Trump. something inside his brain just doesn’t function. Or maybe they’re just two sociopaths. Either way, I will be happy if I never come across Trump, Kushner or Miller in my entire life.

He apparently was like that in HS, too.

Bareshark
Guest

And from here, things will only get worse for him. His people will do their best to make it worse for us too but that’s been true since jump.

Can’t really say I care who’s behind this date and location, personally. Trump’s people are all equally elitist scumbags in my eyes and Trump is too far gone and evil to do anything but go along with them.

It was intentional, announce his maggot rally on the specific date, cause an uproar, then have a change of heart to try and show everyone how he is really not the biggest asshole in the whole wide world.

Bareshark
Guest

Oh, I’m sure he thought it was a neat idea but someone else came up with it (are we so sure that ONLY Miller would have thought along those lines?). It’s still a stupid-ass idea to have it there for two reasons: 1) Oklahoma’s vote for him is a mortal lock already and 2) the COVID 19 is already skyrocketing there and that extra week will make it more of a hot zone. So the simplest explanation remains the best: he’s going there because he’s guaranteed an adoring crowd. It will do nothing to help his actual campaign.

Bwolofsky
Guest

No way. That implies he thought it out. I don’t believe the man (or something approximating one) can think 10 seconds into the future at this point. No, I think you attribute more intellect to him than I think is left.

When I was doing a little searching around, I found this very interesting bit regarding the ticket sales for the event. From the CBS/DFW website: When supporters go online to register for tickets to the event, they will see the following disclaimer: “By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J.

Yeah, folks were reporting on that notice on Twitter yesterday, saw it as a prime example of Trump’s pocketbook over the people he claims to represent. If they bought a ticket, they can kiss that money goodbye until further notice.

It was a massacre. Watch this short documentary that should be shown in all high schools IMO; https://youtu.be/x-ItsPBTFO0

Greenwood and Rosewood, where white people utterly destroyed two whole communities on flimsy pretexts. And (some) white people have the nerve to condemn blacks for property damage in the wake of a brutal, cold-blooded killing of a black person. Although I will never condone the property damage, I can completely empathize with the rage.

Parscale is now claiming 800K people have signed up – that’s 20% of the population of OK.
The giveaway sentence is this: “Biggest data haul and rally signup of all times by 10X.”
It’s not the rally, but the data: all those names and emails. (I’d be using a burner email, but I’m not an R.)
