Donald Trump’s rallies are taking on characteristics of a WWE match. This past Saturday, a protester from the Black Lives Matter movement was beaten at a Donald Trump rally held in Birmingham, Alabama. Trump (on Fox News Channel Sunday morning) stated: “maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.” The irony of a Wharton-trained Northeastern elite appealing to the baser instincts of the Deep South has not escaped me, although it has apparently eluded his rabid fan base.
Even renowned truth-seeker Bill O’Reilly called out “The Donald” on the whopping lie that “blacks killed 81% of white homicide victims.” Little Green Footballs traced the above disturbing image back to a Twitter stream (apparently from the United Kingdom) which features a modified swatiska with the line “Should have listened to the Austrian chap with the little moustache.”
My song “White on White Crime” is an ironic look at how GOP politicians like Trump and his predecessor flash in the pan hotshot Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani perpetuate the “Black on Black Crime” myth. Indeed, white people need to get under control.
“Hello, this is race-baiting Rudy Guiliani the White Privilege Denialist, speaking to you about a major problem in American society, White on White Crime. Did you know that 86 percent of white victims in America are killed by other white offenders. I feel that there should be more responsibility on the white community to reduce tensions with police. We wouldn’t need to have police officers in such high numbers in white neighborhoods if white people weren’t killing each other all the time.”
White on White Crime
We got the Police who are killing unarmed black men
We got the Koch brothers polluting the environment
Wall Street bankers they ruined the economy
Read the papers it is really not that hard to see
White people – need to get under control
White people – need to look into their soul
The Politicians they don’t know just what the fuss is
They don’t see the wrongs of systemic injustice
Mainstream media stands in solidarity with them
Blame the victims never criticize the system
White People – say it’s not about race
White People – protected by the color of their face
White on White Crime

The “Southern Strategy” playbook of Nixon and Reagan involved blowing racial dog whistles to appeal to disenfranchised white southern voters. Trump’s racial bullhorns are a recipe for a Democratic decimation of the GOP in 2016. This is why a pro-Kasich SuperPAC rolled out an instant classic anti-Trump ad on Monday:
