Go look at his Wikipedia entry, especially under "Politics."  He's all over the map in his preferences and endorsements. Apparently he temporarily endorsed HRC because he was afraid for his life. 

"Dilbert" was (is?) a great cartoon. That doesn't mean Scott Adams can think his way out of a paper bag.

He Built a Privately Funded Border Wall. It’s Already at Risk of Falling Down if Not Fixed.
Trump supporters funded a private border wall on the banks of the Rio Grande, helping the builder secure $1.7 billion in federal contracts. Now the “Lamborghini” of border walls is in danger of falling into the river if nothing is done, experts say.

Donald Trump is bringing his white power revue to Mount Rushmore. This week on Intercepted: As cases of Covid-19 skyrocket across the U.S. — particularly in states that basked in the glory of the Trump administration’s ignorance and anti-science policies — Trump is passionately focused on defending the legacy of the Confederacy and white supremacist monuments. Native American historian Nick Estes explains the crimes against Indigenous people committed by the four presidents whose faces are carved into Mount Rushmore and describes the story of the Native tribes displaced from the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Black Lives Matter demonstrations against police brutality systemic racism continue across the U.S. as calls to defund the police intensify. University of Iowa historian Simon Balto, author of the new book “Occupied Territory: Policing Black Chicago from Red Summer to Black Power,” lays out the origins of the Chicago Police Department as a moralistic enforcement agency in the late 1800s and its transformation into a militarized terror force deployed to systemically and violently control Black people in Chicago, while simultaneously crushing movements for workers’ rights, tenant rights, and basic human rights.

I agree. But it's still important to put the argument in proper context, historical or otherwise.

It matters in both cases (esp. as an elected official), and the latter isn't new either.
 

Sure, i'm obviously not saying being a racist is ok.
but lbj passed civil rights laws, but was probably a racist. 
 

And (I think) to your earlier point...if he's a racist and hides it, it's technically not an issue like the suggestion made by the Dems that started this discussion.  What is almost guaranteed, is that he will be "selling" racist support while standing on Native American soil.

I do think being a racist matters....now more than ever.  Nixon and LBJ are historical figures, and should remain there in the discussion of acceptable behavior in 2020.

Sometimes (supposed) racists (and their policies) are left with no choice. Power isn't given away easily.

In cases of discrimination, a court takes into account the disparate impact a government action has upon a suspect class. In those cases, it is not necessary to prove that there was an intent to discriminate.

Another thought: Trump’s refusal to wear a mask or even to encourage others to do so. Whatever his intent there, no denying the impact that has had on some members of the population.

 

trump took plaquenil, so one can conclude he was concerned about the virus....
so you could also conclude he used the mask issue for political reasons, and to create more divisiveness

This is real and how the DNC really feels about it.  It's just a white supremacist tourist trap in a flyover red state.

Biden will have Mt Rushmore erased by midterms in his first term.  He'll use an executive order and the courts will uphold him.

They said it's only about the Confederacy, but now they're taking down any statue that isn't moving. 

If it has a pigeon sitting on it, it's a target for destruction.

Cannot make this stuff up.  Sigh ...
 

Kurt, you know they have you listed on some board in Siberia as one of the "local actors"?

Look....it was a really foolish thing for the Dems to post, but having said that, let's look at the facts (in roughly reverse order).

Trump is a racist.  Hopefully, we don't need to discuss further.  He's been a racist his entire life.  If you're not willing to accept this as fact, there is no point in continuing.  He is holding a rally during which time he will spew racist ideology....like protecting statues.  I'm not for mobs tearing down statues, but we've reached a point where reflective consideration of who and where statues sit is appropriate.  He could pump the breaks, but instead, he uses inflammatory language in support of racists.  It will be a rally that white supremacists support the message...so it's intentionally or unintentionally a white nationalist rally.

It is taking place on Native American lands.  Those Native Americans have been the target of Republican attempts to make voting more difficult.  Take a look at North Dakota over the past decade if you're not sure.  The only thing left to ensure the integrity of the very important elections in ND are a retinal scan and facial recognition.  

As for the COVID support, even though $8B was part of the Cares relief package, the Tribes has to file a lawsuit to get the feds to release the money in May.

So let's review...

Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again - True
He's attempted to limit voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief - True and True
He's holding a rally glorifying white supremacy on once-sacred tribal lands - Extremely likely

On a factual scale, that tweet was about an 8 or 9 out of 10. 

People should definitely stop destroying statues independently, but it wasn't part of the tweet.  Neither was there any mention of the courts.  You'll get extra points in Russia for remembering a dog whistle subject in your post (judges).  If only you would have woven a bit of abortion rhetoric into the conversation, you would have made the refrigerator.   Next time...
