Trump just launched an anti-Semitic dog whistle attack on NBC’s Chuck Todd, got exposed

- 11.51

President Trump has long been known for his dog whistles to his white supremacist supporters, using coded, but deniable, language to signal that he’s one of them and supports their distorted outlook of the world.

From his there are “some very fine people on both sides” comment after the neo-Nazis killed Heather Heyer, an innocent counterprotester at the racist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year to his labeling of Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers, Trump has often worn his xenophobia on his sleeve for all to see.

Sometimes, however, he hides his intentions more subtly, using references to “merit-based” immigration or crime-laden “inner cities” that trigger anti-immigrant and racist sentiments among his base who recognize the reflection of their own antipathy towards immigrants and people of color.

With that in mind, the president’s tweet this morning attacking “Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Fake News NBC” has raised accusations of coded anti-semitism from people who recognize the term as one of the distinguishing characteristics that the Nazis used to determine which Germans had Jewish ancestry.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Twitter user Stonekettle saw the president’s tweet and responded with an explanation that exposed the heinous and deceptive hidden message Trump may have sent his KKK devotees with his tweet.

Stonekettle did his research and decoded the dog whistle for those of us not reading right-wing propaganda on a regular basis. There’s not much more to add to his analysis outside of a vehement agreement with his conclusion.
