As if we didn’t need any more proof that racist bigots live among us, some questions from a YouGov poll brings the insects into the light of day. Even the Exit Poll data from the South Carolina Primary exposes them for what they are.
Via Fox13 (I know, just hold your nose):
A YouGov/Economist poll asked respondents if they approved or disapproved of “the executive order that freed all slaves in the states that were in rebellion against the federal government,” better known as the Emancipation Proclamation.
Nearly one in five Trump supporters said they disapproved of it, while 17 percent weren’t sure.
The Times also notes that 70 percent of Trump’s supporters in South Carolina want the Confederate flag to fly once again at their statehouse.
Thirty-eight percent wish the South had won the Civil War.
So basically 1 out of 5 of Trump sycophants disapproved of the Emancipation Proclamation, what a big surprise that was….. NOT! Especially seeing as how a majority of those intellectually stunted geniuses want their
‘MuriKKKan Swastika Confederate Battle Flag flying on State grounds. They also want all Muslims barred from ever entering the country, undocumented people expelled, and they damn sure seem to want the US embroiled in another war they cannot afford in the Middle East.
The New York Times also reports:
Possibly more surprising are the attitudes of Mr. Trump’s supporters on things that he has not talked very much about on the campaign trail. He has said nothing about a ban on gays in the United States, the outcome of the Civil War or white supremacy. Yet on all of these topics, Mr. Trump’s supporters appear to stand out from the rest of Republican primary voters.
Data from Public Policy Polling show that a third of Mr. Trump’s backers in South Carolina support barring gays and lesbians from entering the country. This is nearly twice the support for this idea (17 percent) among Ted Cruz’s and Marco Rubio’s voters and nearly five times the support of John Kasich’s and Ben Carson’s supporters (7 percent).
Similarly, YouGov data reveal that a third of Mr. Trump’s (and Mr. Cruz’s) backers believe that Japanese internment during World War II was a good idea, while roughly 10 percent of Mr. Rubio’s and Mr. Kasich’s supporters do. Mr. Trump’s coalition is also more likely to disagree with the desegregation of the military (which was ordered in 1948 by Harry Truman) than other candidates’ supporters are.
The more outrageous statements Trumplestiltskin makes, the more ignorant
f*cktards morons flock to his side. This is truly a disturbing trend that is happening in a country that is supposed to be the Shining City on the Hill. The actions and words of the bigots, roused from their caves by Trump, are eroding the progress that has been fought for and which people have died for.
Americans must combat this problem so that the United States can move forward, and serve as an example of goodness to the rest of the world.
