    What else can be added to The Trump Meltdown machine this week? Scott Rose at PoliticusUSA adds to the shit hitting the fan that isn't coming out of The Donald's mouth at the moment:

    The contemptible Donald Trump has in recent years enjoyed popular success through telling people “You’re fired!” on television. Those situations may have had their TV-land veracity but do not portray what real-life victims of Donald Trump’s incessant on-the-job harassment have had to suffer. At that, we should not brush under the carpet, as though it were of no consequence, the fact that many Jewish groups and individuals think that with his television shows, Trump empowered anti-Semites whenever doing so appeared advantageous to his television ratings.


    Baritone Julian Long, a gay man, worked during his student days in Trumpets Restaurant, interior-designed by Trump’s then wife Ivana Trump. Julian reports that Donald Trump as a fixture of the restaurant subjected female employees to frequent sexual harassment, forcing them to endure the lewd and lascivious remarks he made to them. Trump, furthermore, often harassed, demeaned and humiliated his gay employees by referring to them collectively as “the faggots.” Donald Trump, in other words, abused his position of power as an employer to degrade his employees, bullying them on the basis of their gender and/or sexual orientation.
    That behavior is, seemingly, an inextricable component of Donald Trump’s reprehensible, vulgar, throwback character. His contemptuous and disrespectful attitude towards women is seen in various remarks he has made about his wives. In February, 2008, he told ABC’s Nightline “I just know it’s very hard for them (Ivana and Marla) to compete because I do love what I do. I really love it.” It is more than evident that Donald Trump loves what he does – and what he does is to use his public position to inflame archaic, irrational bigotries and sexism in the more unenlightened portions of the American populace.
    Julian Long says that one evening, after a performance conducted by Leonard Bernstein, in the Green Room, Trump was present with a young blonde female escort, not Marla Maples on his arm. Julian overheard Trump refer to Maestro Bernstein as a “Faggot Jew.”
    More recently, Trump has engaged in public bullying and intimidation of American LGBTers, inciting his followers to perpetuate institutionalized discrimination against them. He is still on his ignoble warpath of hate and idiocy, using President Obama as a proxy through which to lash out at and emotionally wound a majority of African-Americans. It is way past time for all decent American elected officials to condemn Trump for inciting hatred of minorities and to demand that he stop doing it.

    So becoming of a presidential candidate, eh? These charges don't seem far-fetched at all, given the bankruptcy-prone billionaire has done a lot to burnish his reputation as a racist.
    What must the honchos at NBC be thinking about the publicity The Donald is generating now?

    Because there is an overwhelming number of GOP morons who legitimately support Trump, and internet advocacy geared against his campaign can do nothing but help. He's doing it for positive attention, and he's trying to "play" a specific demographic in order to get that attention. A backlash is not what he's expecting, and the fact that people like you are trying to stop us from talking about him in a negative light baffles me.

    why
    you guys get up in arms the second he BREATHES, and what comes of that
    A lot comes of it. Three months ago, a lot of internet communities thought Trump was a cool and funny guy who'd do an ace job at running this country because of his business background. Now everyone knows that the guy is a slimeball, and we're better off for it. Information about this scumball gets around fast, too. Non-internet savvy people will hear about Trump's idiocy from internet savvy people who got information from threads like this (Well, FP means jackshit and gets 100% of it's news from Reddit, but I digress.) It's a big circle of information. Posts like yours are way, way more annoying and incessant than the influx of articles about Trump.

    In 2006,Busey signed on to Valley of the Wolves: Iraq.
    The film features a Jewish-American U.S. Army doctor (Gary Busey) who removes organs from injured civilian prisoners to sell to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv for transplantation.
    yeah that makes total fucking sense
    that's not even a valid stereotype you fucking idiots

    In anti gay hate crimes (physical violence), can you guess which word is used during the crime?

    regardless, why would you give a shit about donald trump's "public persona"?

    so according to this, if you call someone a faggot, you're advocating violence?

    then you have a vested interest not to care about his "public persona".
    (that's assuming you don't want him to be successful in his run for office)

    People think it's a stunt. "Come on, he's a business mogul for Christ's sake, he's not going to become president."

    Then again,

    "Come on, he's an action-movie star, not a serious presidential nominee!"

    people like you need to stop this "oh who cares get over it" bullshit.

    how are we supposed to get a decent person elected or educate people with attitudes like that.

    calling people faggots is a-okay you're just being a sensitive princess!
