Trump Vows 'Judgement Day' for Opponents and 'Largest Deportation in History' If Elected

1
As part of a rambling and bizarre speech at the annual CPAC gathering of far-right activists and GOP operatives, Trump said, "For hardworking Americans, November 5 will be our new liberation day. But for the liars and cheaters and fraudsters and censors and imposters who have commandeered our government, it will be judgement day."

Watch:

Though he previously served as the President of the United States and remains de facto head of the Republican Party, Trump cast himself to the fascist audience members as a political "dissident" who would have his "ultimate and absolute revenge" on President Joe Biden and the Democrats who he claimed had turned the nation into a "living hell."

Federal statistics show that crime rates have fallen since 2022, but that didn't stop Trump from characterizing the nation as a crime-ridden dystopia on verge of annihiliation.

"Our country is being destroyed and the only thing standing between you and its obliteration is me," Trump declared, harnessing his familiar demagoguery in which he characterizes himself as an authoritarian savior.

Trump promised to enact that "largest deportation in the history of our country" if put back in the White House as he continued his vilification and dehumanization of immigrants and asylum seekers.

"We have no choice," Trump declared. "It's not a nice thing and I hate to say it, and those clowns in the media will say 'Oh he's so mean.' No, no. [Migrants are] killing our people, they're killing our country."

Earlier this week, the Washington Postreported that Trump and his allies are already planning ahead for an aggressve anti-immigrant plan that would include use of the military to round people up, hold them in detention camps, and remove them from the country.

"He was obsessed with having the military involved," said one former senior administration official who spoke to the Post.

In a particularly bizarre and racist digression, Trump claimed Saturday that migrants coming into the U.S. are speaking languages "that nobody in this country has ever heard of" and carry diseases "nobody ever heard about."

Following Trump's CPAC speech, the Biden campaign's rapid response director Ammar Moussa, dismissed Trump as a "loser" and said the American people have previously made clear they've seen enough of what he represents.

"America already had the opportunity to choose if they wanted another four years of hell with Donald Trump's chaos, division, and crazy—they said no—and will again in November," Moussa said.

Trump tells right-wing Christians they will have power at 'level you've never used before'

Just ahead of his headline spot at the CPAC convention in Virginia and the South Carolina primary on Saturday, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump delivered a speech to right-wing broadcasters Thursday night in which the former president vowed to hand power over to the Christian nationalist movement on an unprecedented scale.

Trump said during his speech at the annual conference of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) in Nashville, Tennesse that he would defend "pro-God context and content" on the nation's AM radio stations as he told the audience that religion is "the biggest thing missing" in the United States and warned, without evidence, that Christian broadcasters were "under siege" by the left and a "fascist" Biden administration.

"Trump's true sin is not hypocrisy but theocracy."

"We have to bring back our religion," Trump declared. "We have to bring back Christianity."

Striking a Christ-like pose at one point with his arms outstretched as if on a cross, Trump mentioned his legal struggles, including multiple criminal indictments and civil judgements, and said, "I take all these arrows for you and I'm so proud to take them. I'm being indicted for you."

As Common Dreams reported earlier this week, right-wing Christian Nationalists operating in Trump's inner circle are quietly preparing for the prospect of his possible reelection.

In his speech Thursday, during which he also promised to close the Department of Education so that Christian fundamentalists could take over school policy at the state level, Trump said, "If I get in, you're going to be using that power at a level that you’ve never used before."

Reflecting on Trump's speech at the Washington Post, columnist Philip Bump argued that above all else the former president is a salesman selling a product to a key voting bloc in this year's election, in this case right-wing Christians.

The former president, writes Bump, is "telling a group that feels as though it is losing cultural power that it is right and that he will ensure that it doesn't."

"It worked in 2016 and 2020," he wrote, having noted that Trump won the large majority of those voters previously. "Why shouldn’t it work now?"

Writing in The Nation on Friday, Jeet Heer warned that a key feature of Trump’s current presidential campaign "is that he is now in open alliance with Christian nationalists—a faction markedly more radical and opposed to democracy than the mainstream evangelicals he courted in previous elections."

I bet House Speaker Johnson got a real hard Johnson over that speech.

It amazes me that so many fundamental Christians flock to a man who breaks every one of the ten commandments daily. A pathological liar and criminal who sees women as second class citizens and everyone outside the US as expendable is an example to pattern your life by.

Can't grasp it.

Also don't forget that he is a Racist. When he was running the Trump casino in Jersey into bankruptcy, he stated he didn't want any black people handling any money because they will steal from him. But he want those guys wearing the funny little skullcap hats because Jewish men make money for him.

For all their racist swill, someone should ask voters who would replace their dishwashers and table-cleaners? Who would they ask to climb to reroof their houses? Who would they want to pick their foods from the fields? Because until you know who you are deporting and the workers you would find to replace for those jobs and how much more you are willing to afford to pay those replacements, all that racism amounts to the empty promises of a con-artist.

We shouldn’t have illegal aliens and illegal workers. They should all be legal and we have to accept that costs will increase. As it is, we are condoning worker exploitation. Wanting to have cheap labor that works for below minimum is not an acceptable solution. People need a living wage.

Immigration has been an issue for the last three years, Biden dismantled on his first day in office all the immigration policies of the Trump administration. The drug cartels who have become even wealthier on migration, interpreted Biden's actions as "open borders". Biden deserves all the criticism he's getting on immigration, his actions and inaction were stupid.

Agree, biden deserves to be grilled for his actions and inactions. He had three years to formulate and enact a plan on immigration. Instead one of his first actions was to start going after his gun ban initiatives.

Exactly. Of all of the things America needs to get done from SS and Medicare reform and dealing with the Immigration issues Biden and Co. go for the gun ban bullshit right off the bat. Hook a Brother up, Joe. Get to the meat and 'taters.

He’s stuck in the past. In his first campaign in 1972 biden accused his opponent as being old and out of touch. His opponent was in his early 60’s, biden is over 80. So why doesn’t this age thing apply to biden, why should we see him any more fit than he saw his opponent then? Could it be that when it comes down to it, people like biden love a double standard. It’s biden that’s out of touch now. Can’t even see what’s really important to our nation and which issues should be priorities.

Preach On!

The most valuable resource for any nation is its people. (Which in turn makes the most valuable skill leadership, but I digress.) The bigger the aggregate number, the better. The rest is odds, and our home grown bad guys are just as bad as any coming from overseas. In fact, I would say that bad guys are the last to uproot their lives and go to a country where they don't speak the language, not the first. I would argue that we're getting the good ones, we're getting the ones who won't accept a third world life, and are doing everything in their power to change that. We're getting the ones with balls, not the cowards who mug people.

We get stronger every time an immigrant crosses the border.

My last point is that we attract them. That means the only way to shut the flow off is to remove the attraction, and that means changing our country to where there is nothing here that attracts them.

And that's a fools' choice.

Bravo and agreed. These people are fabulous resources for America by and large. But we need a plan to make it go...leaving them to flounder without a plan is pure waste, IMO.

Yes we do.

I employed folks for the better part of two decades.

The fallacy that immigrants don't pay taxes used to make me shake my head, because no one got around the taxes withheld from their checks.

But what they didn't do was take advantage of the things those taxes buy. I had a carpenter who didn't want to go to the hospital after he lost a finger, because he was afraid he would be deported. They didn't get tax refunds.

Anyway, don't get me started. This subject got me kicked off The High Road, by a racist Texan named Art Eatman.

I’ve heard that many undocumented immigrants actually work in the hospitality industry by using someone else’s SS number. So they are indeed paying income taxes and actually contributing to the SS fund for some another American to collect for retirement!

Certainly not a good goal to have illegal aliens contribute to someone else’s SS and gain no retirement benefit themselves. It just perpetuates taking advantage of workers who end up with no protections. There’s enough prejudice in this country against immigrants, I know the issue personally, and the only real fix is to fix the system and have orderly fair legal immigration process. Illegal just gives those intent on taking advantage of people leverage.
