A new public awareness campaign called “Stop Hate, Dump Trump” aims to convince Americans to stop supporting Donald Trump’s presidential ambitions, declaring him a menace to democracy. The campaign is the brainchild of playwright Eve Ensler, Hollywood producer Jodie Evans, and law professor Kimberle Crenshaw. It has attracted support from actors like Kerry Washington and Jane Fonda, in addition to liberal thinker Noam Chomsky.
“The media is pushing the hate of Donald Trump like it’s a reality show,” said Evans.
Ensler said the campaign afforded “Americans a chance to be heard and engage in action, as Trump’s campaign gains momentum even as he increases his hateful and divisive rhetoric.” She accused the media of being complicit in Trump’s rise:
We also intend to put the media and political institutions on notice that they are accountable for normalizing Trump’s extremism by treating it as entertainment, by giving it inordinate and unequal air time and by refusing to investigate, interrogate or condemn it appropriately.
There’s certainly no question that Trump has dominated the airwaves since he announced his candidacy last summer, but it’s hard to imagine criticizing the media for “refusing to investigate, interrogate, or condemn” it. That’s all the media has done for the last seven months. And every time they launch another attack on the Republican frontrunner, his poll numbers go up.
According to the PR campaign, “Trump is a grave threat to democracy, freedom, human rights, equality and the welfare of our country and all our people.” The activists even go as far as to make a subtle allusion to Hitler. “History has shown us what happens when people refuse to stand against hate-filled leaders. We pledge ourselves to speak out in every way possible against the politics of hate and exclusion he represents.”
These liberals aren’t the first ones to accuse Trump of being “hate-filled” by any means, but where is the evidence? What has Trump said that makes him comparable to Hitler? What, he made fun of Carly Fiorina’s face? He proposed a temporary ban on Muslim entry? He supports enforcing the immigration laws already on the books? Can someone explain how any of this makes him a monster?
If the media onslaught of the last year has not been enough to knock Trump off his perch, it’s unlikely that a PR campaign put together by far-left liberals will get the job done. In fact, the more these idiots rally against Trump, the more his supporters solidify around him. Why? Because it’s so transparently obvious that Trump is not what his detractors say he is. This is just another example of the rampant political correctness that has angered a large portion of the American public, setting the stage for the outspoken fearlessness that has made Trump a phenomenon.
Keep fighting it, you frauds. See what happens.
