This can’t be good for the left.
One of liberals’ favorite tools of attack is to sling the accusation “racist” or “sexist” at their political victims, in effect shutting down all arguments based on logic or fact.
But those days may be coming to an end, at least insofar as hitting at the Donald Trump campaign. That’s because Lynne Patton, director of the Erip Trump Foundation and an assistant to the Trump family, took to YouTube to state unequivocally: The billionaire family is far from racist, AllenBWest.com reported.
Oh, and the kicker: Patton is black.
“I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate–mongering groups, campaigns and messaging,” she said, reading from a letter on video, Western Journalism reported.
She then told those who would charge her statement was only due to direct order from the Trump family that she “deliberately chose not to seek their approval nor council in advance to this video.”
And the gist of her message?
“The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends,” she said. “They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world – hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked.”
Patton also stood firm in the Trump camp for the candidate’s call to temporarily halt Muslim migration to the United States, for national security reasons.
“To equate racism with my boss’ call for a temporary moratorium on a flawed immigration system that radical Islamic terrorists continue to exploit, or the construction of an impassible wall to protect our borders … is not only incendiary, it’s wholly irresponsible and only serves to embolden the very hatred these draconian groups espouse,” she said, Western Journalism reported.
Her video, within hours of posting, went viral.
