“Black Liberal Goes To a Trump Rally”

 

Today News Africa’s White House correspondent Simon Ateba tweeted this short clip yesterday, and it has received about 2 million views so far.

Millie interviews a black liberal guy who, for some reason, believes that he would be in danger at a Trump rally. Instead he is welcomed, witnesses a lot of hate at the lefty demonstration, and experiences a revelation of sorts.

It’s great. But Ateba should have gone the extra mile and provided the background on this.  ‘Cuz it’s really good!

This clip above is actually a tiny synopsis of a 2020 documentary put together by Millenial Millie called “Love Trumps Hate”.

Here:

The documentary is long, but very well done, and entertaining.  And downright charming.

But there’s more… Check out these “reaction videos;” they’re delightful.

The Cartier Family:

Jamel aka Jamal:

And Half and Jai (two parts):

That’s a lot of material, but I think you’ll find them all to be pretty sweet.

    Man, I simply cannot fathom the hate from the self-righteous Karens.  When you ask these folks why they hate Trump so much, the Litany of Abuses comes pouring forth from their mouths like they’ve been seal-trained (not Seal Team 6 trained) to regurgitate it.  

    Nauseating.  They’ve been programmed to hate.  And they wallow in it, ingest it, bathe themselves in it, to further empower their fury.

    They must lead interesting lives.

    They are often severely miserable people who need some way to vent their uncontrollable anger.

    Reminds me of some clips by Bill Maher where he says he will vote for democrats no matter how bad the policy is because Republicans are bad racist people.

    He still says it. I dont understand how he has any audience left. His deliberately uninformed views – I mean he has a big budget TV show on HBO, with a writing staff, and researchers. He’s not accidentally uninformed. He’s a deliberate ignoramus.

    Did you see Billy go on the Megyn Kelly show this week, and just get crushed, because he didnt know Hillary Clinton called Trump “Illegitimate” ? How could he not know? I know he’s difficult to listen too, and I tune out the screeching harpy as quickly as possible (Hillary not Megyn)… The only reason he doesnt know, is because he doesnt want too.

    No matter what democrats do he’ll never stop supporting them. Because Trump is mean…

    So the core of his identity is that he is progressive because progressives are smart decent people. It is similar to racism. I am part of the good tribe without actually having to be good. 

    If you take away his progressive identity, what’s left of him?

    No, I dont think so. I think he identifies as an old school liberal. He separates from the progressive left on the woke agendas… The cancel culture stuff, as a comedian he realizes the damage this agenda has caused.

    Yes, but, he’s still woefully unaware of much of the real events.  He’s also something like George Carlin, actually helping push these things and then acting like a detached observer who wasn’t personally responsible for any of it.

    Yes, as I said he’s willfully ignorant. His tv show has a writing staff, researchers, etc. He has no excuse to not know any fact that doesnt support the democrat narrative.

    You can lead him right upto the edge of reality – but you have to beat him with a shovel for him to see it.

    While no doubt Gad Saad is a brilliant and wise man. (I only listened to about half of the video) I dont think Bill Maher is that complex.

    He chose to be a democrat – as a young man – possibly because everyone around him were also democrats, he didnt read anything to make this choice. He just went along with it. A position that someone didnt reason their way into – they cannot be reasoned with out of that position…

    So he can all day and all night moan about the terrible policies these democrats pursue, but there is no way in hell he’d ever vote against them… Because he has not made a reasoned decision to support them, there is no reasons why he’d change his support.

    I watched Mahr’s Politically Incorrect back in the late 90s/early 00’s.  My main takeaway from him then was that he called himself a “libertarian” because he liked smoking pot.  Aside from that he was a pretty orthodox Clinton Democrat.

    So Maher is about as dogmatic as a Missouri Methodist who never once thought, What if the Hindus are right? Maher never seriously read a book about conservatism and asked, What if these guys are right? I am always a little surprised by the sheer intellectual unseriousness of how people live.

    Even if he has read such a book, I suspect the pot has long since wiped it away.

    I would agree with that. I watched Politically Incorrect back in the day as well.

    This is not even Obama’s democrat party. The 90s Clinton democrats are RINOs (or agree with them) now.

    I am sure Maher has read a book, I didnt mean to imply that he hadn’t read anything… Anytime he someone on to discuss their book, its pretty clear that he hasn’t read it. (not just Ann Coulter – but anyone) He’s never read any serious book about right wing/republican ideology.

    Is the Missouri Methodist somehow more dogmatically stubborn that someone of another sect or state? I dont think I’ve ever met one. But I see your point, partisan politics is more akin to religion than a political debate…Individual Catholics may have all kinds of issues with a particular pope – but they still support the church….

    I think they would be “Cafeteria Catholics” – where they pick through the dogma for the bits they want to follow and ignore the stuff they dont. I think that varies from Pope to Pope because each one seems to emphasis different teachings as they like – or maybe as the times demand.
