Why is Trump Trump?: A Reply
to General Colin Powell
Peter Zohrab 2020
Dear General Powell,
President Trump is the Logical Response to Decades
of Media and University Lies and Sidelining of the Constitution.
I am not an American citizen or resident, but America is important to the
World and what
you said about President Trump was important to America, because you are
a Republican and a prominent person. Your condemnation of President Trump,
however, needs to be put into context.
The alternative to Trump (i.e. Back to the Future) is far worse and that
is the reason why (politically speaking) President Trump is the way he is.
Lies. In Western countries, the media and
universities (with few exceptions) simply presuppose the victimhood of
women and racial minorities, rather than proving it. Proving it would
involve looking at all
the ways in which men are disadvantaged, compared to women -- which
most of the media and education system stubbornly refuse to do. They institutionalise
their presumption of the victimhood of women and racial minorities like
a religion in all of their thoughts, words and actions. Moreover, they
enforce belief in this religion by penalising dissenters in their marking
and editorial decisions.
The "Black Lives Matter" movement, supported by the media,
simply assumes that the major factor in police killings is race, rather
than gender. According to the
Washington Post's database (as I mentioned in my article "Black
Lives Matter" Movement is Sexist and Racist"),
thirty-one Black people per million have been killed by US police,
which is somewhat more than the rate for Hispanics (twenty-three per million),
Whites (thirteen per million) and "Others" (4 per million).
However, thirty-four males per million have been
killed by US police, which is vastly more than the rate for females, which
is only 1.5 per million. The discrepancy between the police shooting
rate for males and females is VASTLY greater than the discrepancy between
the rates for Blacks and Whites.
So, if you want to use these statistics to state that the police are
racist against Blacks, you are forced -- logically -- to state that the
police are VASTLY more sexist against men than they are racist
against Blacks! On the other hand, if you want to state that proportionately
more men than women are shot by police because more men than women commit
crimes, you are forced -- logically -- to state also that proportionately
more Blacks than Whites are shot by police because
more Blacks than Whites commit crimes! If you want to draw different
conclusions, you need to provide evidence for those different conclusions.
The Washington Post is supposedly a prestigious newspaper (actually, I don't
think there is any such thing as a "prestigious newspaper"). But
it lied in its
article about its database -- emphasising the racial disparities in police
killings and totally ignoring the much greater gender disparity in police
killings. THAT IS LYING!
Sidelining of the Constitution.
It is all very well your calling yourself a Republican, but if your
views are close to those of Joe Biden, I wonder why you don't call
yourself a Democrat! As you know, the
First Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees Freedom of Expression.
However, the facts which I have outlined above show that only the Leftists
who have allies in the media and the education system have any real freedom
of expression. If your words only reach a few thousands, you don't have
the same freedom of expression as someone whose words reach millions --
thanks to the media and education system.
Then there is the Violence Against Women Act, which was introduced by
Joe Biden. Its very name is discriminatory and a clear breach of the spirit
Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, which states, "nor shall
any State ... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws." Although it has apparently been amended
to make it less anti-male, your close association with Joe Biden shows
you up to be discriminatory and anti-male. I refer you to
Professor Martin Fiebert's Annotated Bibliography of Domestic Violence
Research (much ignored by the media), which "examines 286 scholarly
investigations: 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses,
which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive,
than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners."
Then there is Biden's attitude to due process and the Rule of Law when
male students are accused of rape. Joe Biden wants
to deny accused college students the procedural protections that he
demands for himself.
In these ways, and others, the Constitution has
effectively been sidelined for ages by Joe Biden, the Left and their media
and university friends.
President Trump has mounted the first successful revolt against the undemocratic
control of the Left over the information which voters need in a functioning
democracy. This control over information has systematically disseminated lies
and sidelined the US Constitution.
