It might seem unbelievable to some that Donald Trump could have been considered for an award in celebration of 'patriotism, tolerance, brotherhood and diversity.'......

No one accused Donald Trump of being a racist until he decided to run for president and became a threat to Hillary Clinton’s return to power.

In 1986, Trump joined several other prominent Americans, such as Rosa Parks and Muhammad Ali, as recipients of an “Ellis Island Award.”

One suspects if Trump was a racist, there’s no way he would have posed for a photo with those two.

In the lexicon of the left, Racist = Opponent of Leftists.

When Donald Trump was not an opponent of Leftists, he was not racist.

As soon as he was seen as an opponent of Leftists, he became racist.

On the left, racism has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with politics.

And on the left, money and power/influence also guides their agenda, their core.

Bingo. And here's even more evidence: Trump with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (1996).

Reminds me of the ‘Al Smith’ dinner prior to the 2016 election. Wherein Candidate Trump looked around, remarked that many, many of the attending Democrats were frequent visitors at his office soliciting campaign donations.

Ellis Island didn’t even open until 1892.

How about the award Jesse Jackson gave him for helping black people in the 1990’s.

At the heart of Cultural Marxism is Identity Politics. The DemonRats will play the race card every chance they can.

Herbert Marcuse, of the Frankfurt School, came to prominence in the 1960s. He believed that America’s Constitution is being used to oppress minorities. For him, it is the struggle between the oppressed minority and the oppressors (a twist on the Classical Marxist haves vs the have-nots). Under the Marxist umbrella is Social Justice, Feminism, Neo-progressivism, and Post-colonialism. Be it gender, sexual orientation, family, race, culture or religion, every aspect of a person’s identity is to be questioned. Every norm of society is to be challenged. Instead of the working class, it has become minorities. Majority groups have become the privileged and oppressive. The minority groups have become the unprivileged and oppressed. Heterosexuals are oppressive. Whites are oppressive—especially white men. Christians are oppressive. So, if heterosexuals are oppressive, then encourage other forms of sexuality. If whites are oppressive, then promote diversity. If Christianity is oppressive, then promote Islam. It goes on and on, using the Marxist model, into a morass of continuous warfare between ever more narrowly defined groups of “offended” minorities. This is the demon of Identity Politics that has been shoved down our throats.

With this philosophy, a method has been devised to send nations into a cycle of self-destruction. Out of that chaos will emerge the ruling elite to bring the masses to the Utopian Age which is actually a facade for tribalism and the totalitarian state.
