The source of Donald Trump’s anti-semitic Star of David meme attack on Hillary Clinton has been revealed to be a neo-Nazi message board.
Here was the original tweet from Trump, which he has since deleted:
It turns out that the meme was not created by the Trump campaign.
Mic reported, “Mic discovered Sunday that Donald Trump’s Twitter wasn’t the first place the meme appeared. The image was previously featured on /pol/ — an Internet message board for the alt-right, a digital movement of neo-Nazis, anti-Semites, and white supremacists newly emboldened by the success of Donald Trump’s rhetoric — as early as June 22, 2016, over a week before Donald Trump’s team tweeted it.”
You can see the meme as it was originally published archived here:
The Trump campaign is pulling material off of white supremacist message boards for their own use. They are having their candidate tweeted racist and bigoted material from white supremacist forums.
The media can no longer deny Trump’s appeals to bigotry and racism. The KKK love Trump and believe that he is going to lead them back to prominence. What Trump is tapping into goes beyond the politics of a presidential campaign. Donald Trump is openly promoting bigotry and racism as a part of his presidential platform.
The country has a moral duty to shine the light of truth on the Trump campaign. Voters deserve to know what Donald Trump is really all about, and Republicans like Paul Ryan, who intentionally sweep Trump appeals to racism and bigotry under the rug don’t deserve to serve the American people. Trump is just campaigning on bigotry and racism. He is promoted bigoted and racist propaganda as a part of his campaign.
Anyone who supports Trump is supporting bigotry and racism.
