The difference between a racist and a bigot part 2

Dear Readers:

This is one of those articles where it is best to just re-print it here and let you draw your own conclusions!

In the previous post I looked at the difference between a racist and a bigot, and now I would like to follow it up with an examination I just saw about a guy who almost single handedly brought down the American Republican Party through a combination of his racist and sexist and bigoted actions.
The Daily News published a blistering, 14-chapter editorial that railed against Donald Trump and everything that he stands for.

Its front page on Friday morning: “NEWS TO AMERICA: BURY TRUMP IN A LANDSLIDE. Restore U.S. honor with giant defeat of the fearmongering demagogue.”

The New York tabloid has long established itself as one of Trump’s foes. When the Manhattan businessman launched his presidential campaign in the summer of 2015, the Daily News depicted the Republican as a clown. In turn, Trump has repeatedly tweeted that the newspaper is “failing” and “worthless.”

But Friday’s editorial, which clocks in at more than 7,900 words, might be the most scathing attack on Trump from any newspaper in the country.

And because Trump refused to say at Wednesday’s presidential debate that he would accept the election results, the Daily News urged the public to deliver an unequivocal message on Election Day.

“Trump’s reckless willingness to damage trust in the electoral process — in order to save face and hold leadership of the paranoid wing of U.S. politics — is the most pressing reason why voters must defeat him in a landslide,” the paper wrote. “Herewith, we fervently pray, is the political obituary of Donald Trump and all that he stands for,” it added.

The editorial offers a point-by-point takedown of Trump across 14 chapters that question his policy positions, his business record, his fitness to serve and even his sanity: 1. “TRUMP THE DEMAGOGUE,” 2. “TRUMP THE FRAUDSTER,” 3. “TRUMP THE HEAD CASE,” 4. “TRUMP THE FAKE PHILANTHROPIST,” 5. “TRUMP THE LIAR,” 6. “TRUMP THE FLIP-FLOPPER,” 7. “TRUMP THE IGNORAMUS,” 8. “TRUMP THE CONSPIRACY THEORIST,” 9. “TRUMP THE TAX EVADER,” 10. “TRUMP THE DIVIDER,” 11. “TRUMP THE AUTHORITARIAN,” 12. “TRUMP THE SECURITY RISK,” 13. “TRUMP THE MISOGYNIST” and, finally, 14. “TRUMP THE ENEMY OF DEMOCRACY.”
Punctuating each chapter is a scorching image from the paper’s cartoonist, Bill Bramhall. The first chapter’s cartoon, for instance, depicts Trump as Hitler. The “Ignoramus” chapter’s cartoon shows Trump unable find the U.S. on a world map. The “Authoritarian” chapter features a shirtless Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin riding a horse on “Barfback Mountain.” Yet another shows President Trump firing nuclear missiles and then asking his generals if he can retract the order.

“Donald Trump is ending his campaign in an ever more inflammatory and destructive assault on American democracy,” the editorial concludes. “The end of his presidential dreams must come under an avalanche of anti-Trump votes on Nov. 8.”
