Well yes! We all know they’ve been working to change that message for years… while trying not alienating their racist dixiecrat refugees from almost 50 years ago… throwing them a bone every once in a while. Saying coded hardcore racist shit like Sarah Palin mentioning a blood libel. I bet that ladies phone number is sewed into all her jackets in case she gets lost, and I doubt she’s been READING or anything… so that’s some crap she read off a cue card.
So its their speech writers that are peppering their speeches with these creepy shout outs. And that’s probably based on some complex scheming to figure out how to doublespeak to a crowd and not show your hand. But luckily racists have had LOTS of time to practice.
And its not easy… talking out of both sides of your mouth.
I just can’t tell if subtlety is just not Trump’s forte and “Kick all the muslims out” is his Trumpy attempt at a dog whistle… but… It won the support of a bunch of idiots who had been screaming that at their TVs and whispering it to their friends in hushed conspiratorial tones for YEARS!
Those people are old… and outnumbered.
It’s a little hard to position yourselves as the party of latino conservative ethics when your party shows its overwhelming support for a candidate with a crayon drawing of a wall in one hand, and who’s pointing at it and blathering on about kicking all the immigrants out…
He’s not just costing them their political clout in 2016 and embarrassing them personally. He’s destroying their long game.
