published on July 20, 2020

Amid another record day of coronavirus cases president trump spoke again on the white house grounds remarks that were being billed as on deregulation but turned into another campaign-style speech with president trump warning that

Democrats and specifically joe biden want to ruin the american suburbs our entire economy and our very way of life are threatened by biden's plans to transform our nation and

Subjugate our communities through the blunt force instrument of federal regulation at a level that you haven't even seen yet the democrats in dc have been and want to at a much higher level abolish our

Beautiful and successful suburbs by placing far left washington bureaucrats in charge of local zoning decisions your home will go down in value and crime rates will

Rapidly rise joe biden and his bosses from the radical left want to significantly multiply what they're doing now and what will be the end result is you will totally destroy the beautiful

Suburbs eddie glaude author of begin again what do you hear when you hear those words i hear i hear the words of a racist um to be honest with you

Listen at the language they want to subjugate us that's an extension of old language of the fear of black domination they want to abolish our beautiful suburbs they're going to bring down your

Property values uh they're going to uh in crime will increase all of these art racial dog whistles these are this is a foghorn so he's appealing to white fears in this

Moment and you know the irony mika is this it's happening against the backdrop we lost a giant last night and that's ct vivian ct vivian was a member of the sclc he's

Part of the you know civil rights leader who stood up to jim carr clark who was punched dead in the mouth by jim clark and selma in 1965 got right back up non-violently in order to register to

Vote and here ct vivian makes his transition i hope he's sitting with god now and here this many years later we're listening to the president of the united states invoke clearly racist

Language in order to stoke white fears to save his political behind so eddie i was actually funny as you were speaking in the break before i was just reading about ct vivian again the

Atlanta journal constitution's uh obit its memories of him and he took 11 stitches in the mouth but he stood up and and did what he had to do and was arrested for it in selma

But eddie i you know i know we're not surprised by anything donald trump says or does anymore i guess because he set that bar so high but my goodness it's hard to listen to a

President united states standing outside the white house yesterday in mid-july of 2020 and make the overt case to white people in the suburbs that if you elect joe biden

People from the cities black people from the cities are going to flood into your neighborhoods and ruin them that is what the president was saying yesterday indeed you know he's always talking

About black and brown people as kind of like infestations uh people who threaten to to to undermine the very fabric of america that us and them kind of language and really

You know as you said in the last hour this is explicit as you just said now this is explicit and you know americans have to face this that we have to make a choice you know the rhetoric is not unusual i

Mean it's just a caricature of what we've been hearing for over 40 years in terms of how racial dog whistles have in some ways informed our body politic he's just really

Bad at it he's just really crude about it we have to make a choice to finally leave this stuff behind and let's and i hope in november and i i think i agree more with mika than i do with

Donnie he's going to get worse and i think we need we need to understand that we have to make a choice there's no middle ground here no middle ground how many lessons do we

Have to learn about donald trump how many times do we have to be shocked how many times do we have to be appalled how many times do we have to be humiliated as americans around the world

To see that he will do anything doesn't care about the law doesn't care about norms doesn't care about traditions and he doesn't care about people and he will do whatever it takes

To somehow make his mark and to make it seem that he has been in some way discriminated against that he is the victim that perhaps the election was illegitimate or the votes weren't counted right

He won't leave i gotta bet on this he won't he will try to he will try to hold on somehow and he will surprise us i cannot tell you what he'll do but i will say putting the mic down and
