    I think they are just scared of the truth that we are all equal.

    • Jeff Gibson | July 2, 2020 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      I tried to tell the Chicago Bulls that I am equal to Michael Jordan and I want a part of his playing time and his pay. They told me, all people are not equal.

      @Jeff Gibson then you didn’t have similar athletic skills. Simple

    • @Jeff Gibson
      I bet if you take a dump your rump will be just as dirty as Trump’s
      We may not all be equally genius (or idiotic, like some of the people who post profane trash believing their’s is profound spazz), but we’re all humans with equal rights under the law. So if you feel compelled to continue posting absurd comparisons in hopes of winning arguments, then you sir, have proven yourself to be superior in the art of “Open mouth, Insert foot” and so I hereby officially nominate you for the 🏆1st Nobel Prize in Impractical Sciences & Profound Philosophical Stupidity 🤫. Congratulations 🎊

      The Bible says something different…that’s why Caucasians are saying they are the real Jews on more STOLEN LAND.

    The term “Silent Majority” is a Civil War euphemism that was used to describe dead Confederate Soldiers. Richard Nixon used it later as a hidden code for the white majority.

    • Jeff Gibson | July 2, 2020 at 4:47 PM | Reply

      No it isn’t. Spiro Agnew used the term first to describe the majority of Americans who don’t speak in the media. There is nothing about it “in code”.

      @Vitalena Grish WOW this comment made my eyes and head ache.

      Donald Trump’s idea of the “silent majority ” is devisive,evil and a regressive theory.Its to say the least, the actions of an immature person who due to their divisiveness, has no place in humanity

    • nadia mccall | July 2, 2020 at 8:25 PM | Reply

      i never realized how easy and barely hidden it’s been and I guess I was just in denial. I should’ve realized as I live in the center of the Confederacy

  3. The “Silent Majority” hates Trump.

    America’s a red nation give back the black hills!

  6. Dog Whistle from the Orange Menace,
    His base is being whittled down to America’s dark underbelly of the deeply disturbed and self disenfranchised.

    Trump racism is beyond measure
    He must go now

    The Trumpoons are up this morning in the comment section on Morning Joe. OMG, welcome guys. Hey hello.

      Thank you great to be here , I am a ” trumpoon ” who used to be a Democrat who voted for Obama

    It is not without irony that trump uses the term “silent majority” when he is encouraging a subset of whites to think, act, and vote as if they were members of a minority group.

  10. Eddie Glaude Jr.!!! Yes! Converting racists are the racists job.

    How can a person get so many things so very wrong and what does it say about our country that he is our president 🙀

    • william carter | July 2, 2020 at 3:03 PM | Reply

      Voting white like it’s a policy choice of live or die or not be included in ever changing racial demographic .. However no matter how the racist propaganda goes the world is and will change regardless an it comes down too the choice on what side of history anyone wants to be … You see the leadership failures on top of slumming with the Russian..

    • usern4metak3ns | July 2, 2020 at 3:14 PM | Reply

      It says a lot and nothing good…

    • @william carter blame it on education by reality show tv.


    • Minnie Minosa | July 2, 2020 at 3:49 PM | Reply

      I don’t know any Trump policy specifically designed to hurt black American citizens. If you do please share with the class.
      Flooding underserved black American neighborhoods with racist border jumpers is a Democrat policy

    • Bacons Strip | July 2, 2020 at 5:54 PM | Reply

      Minnie Minosa True, I’m voting Biden and even I know democrats are hoping for a hispanic population explosion because they are tired of pandering to black America.

      I don’t blame them either. I can’t imagine having to stand up on stage during a primary with 8 or 9 candidates and all of you are expected to openly say “I stand for reparations” knowing it will never happen thanks to sensible members of your own party and the GOP.

  13. THE MECHANIC | July 2, 2020 at 2:35 PM | Reply

    The “real” majority will vote Trump out.

    • Vote Biden so Black people don’t have to go to work anymore! Biden 2020

      Stroking racial resentment in 2016. after the 2 term historical president was great for millions of weak minded whites worked … However!! it’s 2020 American is in a much different place as well as the over all countries mindset and what’s happening now is predictable an unpredictable… The pandemic response it’s very predictable because of whom s in charge the race thing is unpredictable because George Floyd’s death has set off a historical global protest that’s hasn’t slowed down since the tragic murder of RIP George Floyd!!

    • @william carter Boy,that was a waste of time.

  14. There’s really just one reason most are late to the party…they’ll have to admit they’ve held high power positions for half of a millenia, ironically, because of their skin color and not their competency.

    • @Jeff Gibson Necessity is the mother of invention. So some may not have failed…they may have had no use for those things.

    • @David Eby A lot of people have ascended in spite of longstanding systemic obstacles….is the correct statement…..which is absolutely amazing. LOL

    • Jeff Gibson | July 2, 2020 at 5:27 PM | Reply

      @GRAY WOLF So just because they had no use for those things, is it right that they should come around demanding that other people share those things?

    • What is amazing is the number of people that have zero desire to get a job and live a respectable crime free life. That is a choice! You need a can do attitude,if you think you can’t you won’t.

    • @Jeff Gibson You’re conflating….let me give you an easy example….the natives of the Americas worshipped nature and had no need for none of the man-made inventions you laud or praise. They woulda been content to ride horses til the end of time. The European interpretation of civilization and progress isn’t necessarily everyone elses…

  15. Trump is following the same antics that Hitler & Goebbels used to pump up their base.

  16. Wally Yannin | July 2, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

    Trump doesn’t even know what silent majority is? He’s too uneducated.

  17. rationalguy | July 2, 2020 at 3:26 PM | Reply

    The real “silent majority” are all of us who can hardly wait to vote this jerk out.

    • Jeff Gibson | July 2, 2020 at 4:58 PM | Reply

      Don’t sweat it. Joe Stinkyfingers is 14 points ahead. I read it from the same people who told you Hillary was 14 points ahead.

    • @Jeff Gibson Hillary wasn’t 14 points ahead – and she certainly wasn’t double digits ahead in swing states. The polls were accurate about Hillary. She won the majority of votes nationally, but lost the swing states. Hence the current treacherous clown.

      @9000ck “Treacherous clown”, you say? Oh, that sounds baad.

    “majority”??? they think they are a majority? wow the “silent majority” must be a bunch of idiots….

    James Baldwin is absolutely, perfectly correct!
