The UK “Independent” Wakes Up and Suddenly Realizes That Trump Might Just Win Iowa and The Presidency, Then They Lose Their Minds


Trump promises a turning back of the social clock to 1956. I wish!

“To the seemingly rhetorical question: “When does a delicious frisson of dystopian fear become a blast of blood-freezing terror?” the literal answer may be:  “On 31 January 2016, mate.””

“Two commodities he gives them are potent enough to relegate all other criteria to irrelevance. He legitimises their Jim Crow racism by affecting to share it, and offers hope that he can pop the US in a gold-plated Tardis and return it to 1956.”

Then the column writer, Matthew Norman, just looses it.

Much like watching the handwringing on The BBC, it’s very entertaining.

    ‘He legitimises their Jim Crow racism’

    • Clinton

      I believe this faux-journalist at the Independent was
      referring to the supposed Jim Crow racism of the American
      right– you know, the same sort of ‘racism’ that embraced
      Black candidates like Herman Cain, Col. Allen West, Mia Love,
      Dr. Ben Carson, Tim Scott, etc. The sort of racism that looks
      to a candidate not for the color of his skin, but the content of
      his character…

        …and when the Klan was an invention of the Democrats.

    • The left is always on 11 when comes to fake outrage, screaming racist is the only argument they have.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        And they’re not consistent with their argument, either.
        Jim Crow has nothing to do with Mexicans or muslims.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Didn’t you know that the song “Strange Fruit” was the protest anthem of the Mexican agricultural workers?
          It’s ‘the racism’ I tell ya!

            I read somewhere more whites were lynched than blacks.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            It was about even, but of all the blacks lynched, virtually all were killed for very serious crimes (rape and murder or other crimes of depravity) in which they were almost always caught in the act, and had they not been lynched by an enraged mob, they would have surely been executed for those crimes anyway.
            Blacks were never lynched just because they were walking down the street while black, or failed to tip their hat at a white woman.
            That part is utter myth.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Hollywood would have you also believe that all the blacks who were lynched were like Mushmouth.
            They also ignore the little girls killed in Frankenstein and Of Mice and Men by white guys.
            Did they ever make a movie called Blackenstein?
            Could they make that movie today?

      They just throw any old shit against the wall and hope that it sticks. Its been way too long since they’ve been held accountable.

        I got really pissed off at work one day when the self proclaimed socialist co worker was exultant that the new government had repealed the prohibition against gay men donating blood.
        He blamed the Harper government for the ban and proceeded to slag all Conservatives as gay hating rednecks.
        I said there is a reason that ban was instituted by a previous Liberal government in the first place and a further reason that it continued.
        First, they could not safely screen blood for the aids virus and second, gay men continue to this day to engage in riskier behaviour than the overall population.
        And then I said there are a lot of hemophiliacs with hepatitis that could testify to the importance of caution when it comes to protecting the blood supply.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Homosexuals donating blood gave approximately 90% of hemophiliacs born before 1985 AIDS.

            Wow indeed!
            Share that little factoid article with your mincing co-worker by the racist, homophobic, redneck, bible thumpers at the NYTs.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’m guessing the other ten percent were heroin addicts.
            Isn’t it sad for lefties when even their own fountains of knowledge contradict their views of the world?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            The paradox is that he’s not mincing.
            He’s a guy who grew up in a union family in a mining town.
            It would take years to deprogram him.

          • Maggat

            Thanks, I didn’t know that.

        • andycanuck

          And the few years ago the gay who lost the court case he launched to get the ban overturned turned out to have syphilis.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Gee, I sure didn’t hear that Canadian Press story on CJOB Winnipeg when that happened.
            I listened to CJOB all the time for Jets and Bombers broadcasts.
            And Blue Jays games when they were playing the Red Sox.
            I’m in the car for an hour every day and the only station I can listen to is TSN.
            CJOB is dying.

          They are the most shrill, vicious and vindictive of the whole sorry bunch. Its an aside but the recent killing of the Bundy-related cowboy in Oregon was celebrated by them. Unashamed blood lust.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            On the upside, that sorry bunch tend to congregate in urban areas where they are most likely to experience diversity.

      What party was responsible for the Jim Crow laws again? A little knowledge indeed is a dangerous thing.

    Here comes Trump with the hose. This town needs an enema.

  • Spatchcocked

    There’s an excellent article (the war is joined) by Boyd D Cathey at the Ron unz site….giving the historical perspective of Trumps ( a great man appears) near inevitable appearance….a review of the faux conservatism of the last 50 years…neocons arrival….the purge of the Paleocons and so on and so on…hoists NRO adroitly… nothing more than milk sops …
    Worth reading maybe 2000 words……Cathey is obviously close to the history here…

    • Minicapt

      I don’t think so; he asserted too many unvalidated ‘facts’ to be trusted.


  • jack burns

    You want to see racism check an article about Ben Carson in any of the major outlets. How dare that well treated negro act like he’s the massa. I wonder if/when England will wake up. Its like the film Excaliber when Arthur is in his trance. Will they ever wake up and get their swords?

  • Xavier

    Dog whistle to get the liberal outrage machine running at 110%.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Most Americans have never heard of The Independent, much less give a shit about their articles.

    • Clausewitz

      Like Independents in the US they are nothing more than cowardly Marxists.

  • Millie_Woods

    The thing I most admire about Trump is his ability to drive the right people crazy. They haven’t caught on yet that he just doesn’t care about their worldview.

    English journalist: Trump’s a RACIST!
    Trump: Lick me where I shit laddie.
    English journalist: No, you didn’t hear me, I called you a racist.

    The expression when Liberals first realize Donald Trump becomes president.
