It’s amazing what a difference one single
day can make after the events in El Paso this
past weekend and the manifesto that this shooter
allegedly posted online, uh, where he repeatedly,
I think at least nine times used the word
invasion to describe Hispanics coming up across
the southern border of the United States.
Fox News is back to using that word invasion.
In fact, this morning, Fox and friends actually
defended it and said, it’s not racist to say
it’s an invasion when it’s an actual fact.
So Fox News has learned nothing.
And of course the president learned nothing.
And yes, the president, again, as we mentioned
yesterday, is at fault for this.
And according to a new analysis by media matters,
the president and his campaign have used the
word invasion at least 2200 times in Facebook
ads since May of 2018 that is their preferred
That is the word they use to get their base
all riled up about some mythical invasion
coming across our southern border.
That’s why every time Donald Trump gets in
trouble or there’s some kind of election on
the horizon, there’s always suddenly a caravan
coming up that never actually materializes.
I hope everybody understands that, right?
Let’s get that really clear.
So far, throughout his administration, two
and a half years, there’s been three different
times where he says, there’s a caravan coming
up and it never makes it here, and that news
story just kind of dies off, but that’s what
the president does.
He uses this to just get people energized
to support him, and unfortunately, this past
weekend we saw what happens when people get
too energized by the president’s bigotry because
that’s what this is.
This is the president using racist, bigoted
language to get people riled up.
He knows exactly what he’s doing.
He knows that he is at fault for this.
We have seen his same language, the same words
that he uses, the same phrases that he is
made up have popped up with plenty of these
serial killers and several of the wannabe
serial killers here in the United States.
This is on Trump and here’s the kicker, folks.
This isn’t going to change.
The reason I started by talking about Fox
News still saying, well, it is technically
an invasion, is because things are already
going back to normal at that network.
They’re going back to their racist language.
They’re going back to their racist roots.
They’re going back to those same words that
the killer used in his manifesto, and Trump
is gonna do the same thing.
He gave a nice little flowery speech yesterday,
Give it another 24 hours.
He’s going to be back to attacking people
He’s going to be back to attacking immigrants.
He’s going to be back to using the same hurtful,
harmful, racist language that he was using
less than a week ago, because that’s what
he does because unfortunately, in this country,
we have too many mass shootings and we don’t
have time to dwell on just one or the other.
Even when they happen back to back like they
did this weekend, we have to move on because
there’ll probably be another one in a few
days because we continue to ignore what’s
really causing these problems.
