Hysteria Surrounding Donald Trump

If you are following the presidential sweepstakes, you know that Donald Trump is dominating media coverage - especially on TV.

The guy is ratings gold and not boring.  So he's on camera a lot.

That being said, much of the commentary on Trump is negative:

RICK WILSON, GOP STRATEGIST: "The screamers and the crazy people on the alt-right as they call it, you know, who love Donald Trump, who have plenty of Hitler iconography in their Twitter icons."


WHOOPI GOLDBERG: "I've been part of that when they just use a blanket statement to talk about black people or when they use a blanket statement to talk about or white people or women or any other group!  I don't think that's America!  I don't want it to be America!  Maybe it's time for me to move!"


EUGENE ROBINSON, WASHINGTON POST: "He plays the race card, obviously.  He did it with Mexicans.  He's doing it with Muslims.  He did it before he even considered running for president with African-Americans.  That's part of who Trump is."

So with all the media attention, Donald Trump is taking his lumps in the marketplace of free speech.

But apparently that is not enough for the Trump-haters.

There is a new group called "Stop Hate, Dump Trump" that is trying to intimidate the media.

According to Eve Ensler, a playwright who is a part of the group, the campaign intends to

"put the media and political institutions on notice that they are accountable for normalizing Trump's extremism by treating it as entertainment, by giving it inordinate and unequal air time and by refusing to investigate, interrogate or condemn it appropriately."

That sounds like a threat to me from Ms. Ensler, who is a rabid-feminist.

Others in group: far-left folks Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, Kerry Washington, Rosie O'Donnell, Michael Moore, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

Now we actually applaud Americans who hold deep, honest political convictions but there is much more to this "Stop Hate" group than most know.

Jane Fonda's politics are obvious, and the other celebrities are well known for their liberal viewpoints.

But two lesser-known names within the group are instructive:  Noam Chomsky and Kimberley Crenshaw.

Chomsky is a radical college professor who for decades has tried to smear his own country.

For example, he questioned the credibility of the press reporting atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia in the aftermath of the Vietnam War.

He said the reports were propaganda to put the United States in a more favorable light.

Later Chomsky had to acknowledge that genocide did occur in Cambodia and was committed by communists with whom Chomsky is sympathetic.

The nutty professor also blamed the USA for the 9/11 attacks, calling America "a leading terrorist state."

So why would you live in a terrorist state professor?  Just asking.

Talking Points is amazed that Ms. Fonda, Ms. O'Donnell and others believe Donald Trump is a far out guy - a hater - but apparently they are fine with Noam Chomsky.

He's not a hater?  Come on.  He hates America.

Now on to Kimberley Crenshaw.

She teaches at UCLA and at the Columbia School of Law here in New York City.

She is highly critical of one president - Barack Obama.

The reason?  Mr. Obama launched the My Brother's Keeper initiative that mentors young black men in bad neighborhoods.

Ms. Crenshaw objects to that because women of color are not included.

The teacher was also part of a legal team that had tried to destroy Clarence Thomas.

So you can see what this Dump Trump group is all about.  A bunch of radical leftists who apparently believe they can say pretty much anything, attack anyone, smear their own country and that's okay.

However, Donald Trump's opinion is not okay and if we in the media report it, they are going to get us.  Or something.

Now The Factor extends an invitation to most of the people in the anti-Trump group.  We are happy to debate them.

But the odds of, say, Jane Fonda showing up here are about a million to one.

Over her life Ms. Fonda has been an emotional person, often lashing out against her country in bizarre ways.

She has apologized for her conduct during the Vietnam War, openly helping the enemy while Americans were being killed in Southeast Asia.

Talking Points accepted Ms. Fonda's apology because that is the Judeo-Christian thing to do.

But I don't believe Jane Fonda has learned any lessons at all.

If she believes Noam Chomsky is not a hater, then she's out of her mind.

Chomsky makes Trump look like Mother Theresa.

One of the reasons I continue to do this program, now in our 20th season, is because I am able to expose rank hypocrisy.

Donald Trump is a political candidate.  He is very open about what he believes.

You are free to take him or leave him, to criticize or praise him.  But you are not free to threaten anyone who reports on him.

To his credit, Mr. Trump comes on this program and answers direct questions.

As you know, I challenge him all the time and openly said his ban of Muslims from overseas and his proposed round up of illegal aliens would never be implemented because of legal barriers.

Here we are responsible - using facts to support our opinions.

We practice democracy, freedom of expression, robust debate.

In the radical precincts, Noam Chomsky and his crew seek to shut down expression and debate by using threats and smears.

And one more thing, this group may actually help Donald Trump.

People on the fence about him might well say, you know, enoughs enough with these radical totalitarians.

Trying to stifle news coverage of any political candidate runs against what the USA is all about.

The radical left despises the openness the Constitution encourages.

Why?  Because it's much easier to control thought when dissenting voices are silenced.

And that's the memo.
