The former president has a reputation for putting on cheap shows for a reward. He may not blow a red nose, make balloon animals, or dance a jig at his rallies (though he has attempted that last one), but he still manages to wow his audience by pulling from a bag of ancient tricks, the most dependable of which is racism.
That was certainly the case in Conroe, Texas, where Trump held a rally on Saturday in a predominantly white town.
Trump slammed investigators looking into charges of business and election-related wrongdoing in his remarks.
All of the top prosecutors investigating him, including New York Attorney General Letitia James, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis of Georgia, and House Jan. 6 committee head Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., have been called “racists” by Trump.
Trump is being investigated by James and Bragg for suspected corporate malfeasance, including possible fraud.
Willis and Thompson are looking into Trump’s attempts to sway the outcome of the 2020 election. Trump effectively threatened to turn his supporters against the officials if the investigations, which have been heating up in recent weeks, continue.
“These prosecutors are ruthless, awful people,” Trump said on Saturday. “They’re racists and mentally ill.”
“They’re not after me; they’re after you,” he said at one point, calling for “protests” in New York and Washington, D.C. if the investigations do not go his way.
“I hope we will have in this nation the largest demonstration we have ever had in Washington, D.C., New York, Atlanta, and everywhere if these extreme, terrible, racist prosecutors do anything improper or unlawful,” Trump added. Because our country is crooked, and our elections are rigged.”
Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, was recently given a special grand jury with the authority to summon witnesses in her Trump investigation.
According to a source, she wrote to the FBI on Monday, asking for increased protection to assist secure government facilities and grand jury members, claiming that Trump’s statements over the weekend had “escalated” security concerns.
“We must work together to keep the people safe and avoid a disaster in Atlanta similar to the one that occurred on January 6, 2021, at the United States Capitol,” Willis stated.
She Draws an Interesting Parallel
With His ‘Racist’ Allegation Against Black Prosecutors, Trump Accesses His Inner Clown.
Trump’s technique of inciting racist, racial terror for personal advantage is well established, as seen by the large crowd of white rioters he led to the US Capitol last year.
Trump rose to popularity in the Republican Party even before announcing his candidacy for president in 2015 when he claimed that America’s first Black president was in office unlawfully.
His presidential campaign began with a speech in which he referred to Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and drug pushers.
While president, he routinely insulted pro-Black social justice demonstrators, and after losing in 2020, he claimed that majority-Black districts had stolen the election from him.
Now he claims that Black prosecutors are pursuing him and his followers as well.
His accusations of encountering anti-white prejudice from investigators, as absurd as they are, are merely his latest ruse to incite a ruckus.
