What do you know, another hollow Hollywoody has an epiphany involving Trump and feels the need to tell, warn us. It’s tied to slavery, surprise. This one demanded the entirety of the piece just to reply to the hubris.
John Legend: Trump Supporters are Like People Who Allowed Slavery to Happen in 19th Century
by Daniel Nussbaum – 15 Jun 2016 | Breitbart
Musician John Legend attempted to put Donald Trump’s popularity in historical perspective in an interview Tuesday, appearing to compare those who support the presumptive GOP presidential nominee to people in the 19th century who allowed slavery to continue without realizing it was an evil practice.
“We’re in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive,” Legend told Variety at the publication’s TV Summit in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. “I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place.”
The ten-time Grammy Award winner, a staunch backer of Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton, was at the event to discuss the WGN television series Underground, which centers on a group of slaves who escape a Georgia plantation via the Underground Railroad. Legend is an executive producer on the series.
“We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country,” Legend told Variety. “I’m sure people in the 1800s didn’t think they were evil people, but they allowed an evil institution to last for quite a long time.”
“We, as people who believe in equality and diversity and believe that every human being in this life matters, we need to be vigilant in making sure that we don’t elect leaders who are contradicting that belief,” he added.
Legend, a big fan and personal friend of President Obama, has repeatedly attacked Trump this election season with charges of racism. The musician rarely shies away from expressing his political opinions; most recently, he called on the Democrat Party to end its use of the superdelegate system in party primary elections.
Earlier this month, the singer joined Christina Aguilera and Stevie Wonder in Los Angeles for an all-star concert fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Is that rich, considering he gushes support for Hillary Clinton?
“We’re in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive” — and Clinton is not too divisive for you? We’re having a moment.
“I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place.” — Hillary taking us back to that dark corrupt place doesn’t scare you? All the corrupt scandal baggage has you begging and voting for more? I “feel” the need to point out your absurd stupidity.
“We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country.”— Funny those are exactly the reasons why not to support Hillary. I do like the words “imposing the wrong regime” with all we’ve been through the last 8 years under unilateral, executive action because he could not ram it through Congress. Hillary now wants the wheel.
“We, as people who believe in equality and diversity, and believe that every human being in this life matters, we need to be vigilant in making sure that we don’t elect leaders who are contradicting that belief.”
Wow that’s the gold label of bullshit. Equality, with who they pander to? Diversity again, no diversity allowed. Every human being in this life… while there is only one Party that stands for life now – preserving or protecting the sanctity thereof. Abortion has racked up 59 million and he is supporting the favorite candidate of the abortion industry. Talk about leaders and politicians who contradict that life belief.
So fall back on the Trump is racist canard. Racism is the preferred freebase attack for Dems — no proof needed. When in reality if you don’t belong to a special interest group, then you don’t really exist. So they have categories for African Americans, LGBTQ, Latinos, Hiapanics, Muslims, BLM, unions, environmentalists, professional educators and provocateurs et al. If you don’t fit, you must not count. No “none of the above.”
(Oh, and stay in your lane)
Hillary doesn’t care about every human being either. She abandoned 4 Americans in Benghazi when their lives depended on it. She caused the situation they were in, then she pulled the rug out like leading sheep to slaughter. She pushed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. She’s an Ambassador for death and destruction, gladly taking money from merchants of evil. Trump is Legend’s boogieman — Trump is the Boogieman legend.
