A New Dawn: Trump’s Empowering Message in the Heart of the Bronx


Xitter post from Cynical Publius

So Donald Trump held a huge, wildly successful rally in the Bronx today. That itself is in many ways remarkable, but what I find quite noteworthy is not what happened, but what DID NOT happen. Let me explain.

The population in the Bronx is predominantly black and Hispanic. Like most of America’s urban centers, the Bronx suffers from disproportionate amounts of crime, poverty, drug use and gangs. With that in mind, let me tell you what did NOT happen at this rally:

1. Trump did not put on an affected, fake accent of an A.M.E. Zion minister or Chi Chi Rodriguez (See: Hillary). He was simply Trump, without airs or any patronizing words or thoughts.
2. He did not tell the people of the Bronx that they were victims. He told them that they were powerful and could solve their community’s problems themselves.
3. He did not demonize any groups of Americans as the evil “Other.” Yes, he criticized the failed policies of Democrats and poked fun at their foibles, but he reminded everyone that we are all Americans first, from coast to coast.
4. He did not promise to solve the problems of the Bronx with handouts or wealth redistribution. He merely promised that he would help set the national economic conditions so the community itself could solve its own problems through jobs, business and education. He promised empowerment, not victimhood.

Contrast all of this with what a Democrat would say under the same circumstances. Heck, contrast it with the vile speech of hate and victimhood Biden gave at Morehouse College this past weekend. The difference is stunning.

What scares Democrats about this rally is that it shows them that the people whose votes they have taken for granted for many decades are starting to leave the Democrat Plantation of Victimhood in favor of the uplifting, empowering message of Donald Trump and his aspiration to make America a place that is “great again” for ALL Americans.

The times, they are a-changin’.

Those who fear Trump do so because his is a threat to their way of living. Their way of living is antithetical to the majority of Americans. Americans are becoming intolerant of the way things have been for decades and see the need to revert back to a time when the people were important and not the sociopathic overlords.
The sociopathic overlords do not want to work for the people as they are duty bound to do. There is more money when they are lined up with the special interests class.

I watched a different video showing Chef G arriving thru the crowd.
That man is revered among his local fans in the Bronx.
I noticed also that the Trump advance team said nothing about these two rappers making an appearance.
Trump drew that crowd on his own, the rappers came up as icing on the cake.

Not like obama who had to have “rock stars,” and free concerts to get his big crowds.

Leo (big liberal) Terrell just tweeted out a photo of Rod Stewart’s New Year’s Eve 1994 concert in Brazil AS IF it were Trump’s Bronx rally!
What a dork!

And never mentioned cannibalism. Not even once.
