Harry Belafonte is most famous for “The Banana Boat Song” which means that unless you are 60 years or older and love calypso music, you probably don’t know who he is. He is also a black activist who has a problem with any white President of the United States. While he has laid into George W. Bush in the past, it was nothing compared about what he had to say about Donald Trump. Not only did he compare the President to Hitler, he said Trump is this close to putting all black people in the gas chamber.
On Friday, Belafonte made, what he announced as, his last public appearance at Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh. Ever the entertainer, he really went out with a bang. According to The Guardian, he started out by saying the country “made a mistake” in electing Donald Trump and then dropped this:
“I think the next mistake might very well be the gas chamber and what happened to Jews [under] Hitler is not too far from our door,” said Belafonte.
It’s kind of oddly worded, but I don’t think there is much doubt that Belafonte is saying that like Hitler, Donald Trump has a genocidal agenda. Notice I didn’t say this made any sense, just that it was what he intended to say. The only thing that isn’t crystal clear is who he thinks Trump will exterminate. Given his black activism, I’m going to say it’s black people. Nothing else really makes sense here. He’s not going to say that Trump is marching white people into the gas chamber.
Many on the left have compared Trump to Hitler, but that’s usually in the context of the President enforcing our immigration laws, protecting us from foreign terrorists, or calling out the fake news liberal media. What Belafonte has done is on a completely different level. He’s accusing the freely-elected President of the United States of preparing to commit genocide against his own citizens. Of taking steps to eliminate an entire race of people.
What is this based on? I have no idea. This is still the US and we still have the Constitution in place that limits the President’s powers, including any sort of genocide plans. Also there is that thing where Trump’s racism is based entirely on liberal lies and leftist hysteria, but they’re not going t admit to that.
The reality is, the leftist Resistance shares more in common with fascists like Adolf Hitler. They want to disarm the people. They want to silence any ideas they disagree with. They want to force people to conform to their ideology. They are perfectly fine with using violence to get their way and to crush dissent.
The biggest comparison between leftists and fascists however is that they are all lemmings who go along with whatever crazy and violent thing their party leaders say. No one bats an eye when Harry Belafonte says, “Trump is Hitler and wants to kill all black people.”
Where is the liberal media outrage, or even coverage of this? If a conservative white entertainer had said that Obama was preparing for genocide against white people, it would be a pretty big deal. This however is just another day in The Resistance.
