Trump provokes outrage with wild racist dog-whistle to suburban whites

As the coronavirus crisis sends President Trump’s poll numbers diving off of a cliff, he has been resorting to increasingly blatant appeals to white fear and racism in a desperate attempt to scare voters into giving him another term.

His most recent line of attack is the preposterous accusation that Joe Biden wants to “destroy the suburbs,” which was almost certainly fed to him by white supremacist FOX News host Tucker Carlson. On Wednesday, the president escalated his rhetoric with an appalling tweet that openly promised to segregate suburbs and cruelly dismissed poor Americans.

Promising that people living their “Suburban Lifestyle Dream” would no longer be bothered by “low-income housing,” he announced that he has rescinded President Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which was specifically implemented to combat housing discrimination against minority families.

As many commenters on social media noted, the president’s words are so obvious that they don’t even count as a dog-whistle.

This tweet makes it clear that Donald Trump’s re-election strategy is a promise to reinforce and institutionalize the white supremacist racial caste system that white suburbs help enforce.

The suburbs are the refuge of the fearful white who moved away from the cities in order to get away from Black people and to avoid having their community resources go to improving the lives of Blacks; allowing unfair housing practices to exist help maintain defacto segregation and the police are the institution of racist violence that ensure that Blacks know their place as second-class citizens.

While the national conversation on racism and policing increases pressure on our political elite to dismantle America’s white supremacist superstructure, Trump has made it his mission to defend it.
