Birther/Nativist Millionaire endorses another Birther-supported Millionaire – Trump endorses Romneyby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Feb. 03, 2012, under Uncategorized
What do Donald Trump and Mitt Romney have in common? Both love to fire people. We all know Donald Trump’s infamous you’re fired line, but Romney is famous for firing people, too, via Bain Capital when thousands of families were affected when they lost their jobs.
Donald Trump, a birther who demanded to see President Obama’s birth certificate is endorsing Mitt Romney who ALSO received another nativist endorsement via Kris Kobach in January 2012. Mitt Romney is receiving advice from a known birther which is why he has promised to veto the DREAM Act and can never be trusted by Latinos, or any other minority group. He is who he surrounds himself with. Kris Kobach’s relationship to FAIR is clear and irrefutable – not only does he represent FAIR’s support for white nationalism in court rooms, he is responsible for almost all protectionist, restrictionist and isolationist anti-immigrant laws across the country. So there you have it – Romney is surrounding himself with nativists and white nationalist supporters via the John Tanton network. John Tanton has contributed to the Pioneer Fund and has strong views against the Jews. Mitt Romney chose to make a deal with the devil when he chose to make it with Kobach and for that he must never be voted for.
It appears that the likes of John Tanton would love more than anything to create a RACE WAR which is why I believe Mitt Romney is a dangerous man for the United States when Kris Kobach confirmed he was advising him. WE ARE FOR THE UNITED STATES, Mr. Romney — not a DIVIDED STATES.
Kris Kobach is the legal arm to FAIR who’s only solution to immigration is to simply have none — they don’t want to fix the broken system, they want to eliminate all migration completely.
From the SPLC:
Tanton on ‘the Jews’
In some ways, given his ideas, it’s not surprising that John Tanton would cozy up to white nationalists and their fellow travelers. What is unexpected, even among long-time observers of the FAIR founder, is his attitude toward “the Jews.”
In the late 1990s, Kevin MacDonald, a California State University, Long Beach, professor, was finishing up a trilogy of books that purported to show that Jews collectively work to undermine the dominant majorities in the host countries in which they live, including the United States. MacDonald said that Jews pursue these tactics — including promoting non-white immigration into white-dominated nations — in order to weaken the majority culture in a bid to enhance their own standing. He would later go on to speak and write for white nationalist groups across America.
Tanton liked what he read. On Dec. 28, 1998 — the same year that the last two books of MacDonald’s trilogy were published — he wrote MacDonald, saying, “I hope we can meet some day.” On that same date, Tanton sent a memo to Dan Stein and the FAIR board of directors about a MacDonald paper “on the segment of the Jewish community that has an open borders mentality.” The paper, Tanton said, “would be fertile for group discussion at the forthcoming board meeting.”
Earlier that month, on Dec. 10, 1998, Tanton also sent MacDonald’s work to Cordelia Scaife May, a now-deceased millionaire philanthropist who gave regularly to far-right causes and was a close Tanton friend. “I’m sure [MacDonald's article] will give you a new understanding of the Jewish outlook on life, which explains a large part of the Jewish opposition to immigration reform,” he wrote.
Tanton’s criticism of religious groups wasn’t limited to Jews, however. Over the years, he — like some principals of FAIR — lashed out at a variety of religious denominations, especially Catholics, for their welcoming attitude toward immigrants coming to America from the Third World. In his letter to the FAIR board suggesting a discussion of Kevin MacDonald’s theories, for instance, he described “the Roman Catholic Church [and] several of the Protestant denominations, the Lutheran Church in particular,” as being among “our opponents.” In an earlier, May 24, 1994, letter to Roy Beck of NumbersUSA, he said that “one of the problems with churches is that they see themselves as universal, and as transcending national boundaries.”
For years, FAIR President Dan Stein has hotly denied that his organization had anything to do with eugenics. “Eugenics,” he wrote in a 2004 op-ed in the Kansas City Star, “is pure junk science, and it is utterly unrelated to FAIR’s efforts to bring order to immigration in America.” Two months later, in a press release attacking the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for suggesting otherwise, the group called SPLC’s reporting “utterly specious” and “McCarthyist.”
The press release went on to accuse the SPLC of unfairly linking FAIR to “a long discredited pseudo-science of eugenics” by noting the group had accepted $1.2 million from the eugenicist Pioneer Fund, ending in 1994. The release also claimed that the idea that FAIR had an interest in eugenics had been disproven.
Apparently, John Tanton failed to get that message.
On Dec. 30, 1994 — at the end of the year that FAIR finally stopped soliciting Pioneer donations (after negative publicity) and issued its denunciation of eugenics — Tanton wrote to German academic Wolfgang Bosswick to defend the Pioneer Fund, saying its critics were the “hard (Marxist) left in the United States.”
Donald Trump endorses Mitt Romney for Republican nomination
