In Biblical times there was a general perception that nothing good could come out of Nazareth. Nazareth was a small town some accounts, say that it had only about 150 residents.
Little is known of the reasons behind the negative perceptions of Nazareth. Nevertheless, archaeological excavations have confirmed that the city was only a small agricultural village during the Hellenistic and Roman periods.
Jesus spent his boyhood days in Nazareth, and so that question became moot. Yeshua/Jesus was the personification of good.
Donald Trump Junior has demonstrated that it is generally true that no good can come out of something bad unless you are Yeshua however. Stupid is really is as stupid does.
Donald Trump the present occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and his wife Melania the genius, has been two of the earlier perpetrators of the racist birther lie against then-candidate Barack Obama.
But Junior, an apple no less an ignoramus than the tree from which he fell, was also a part of that sliming.
Barack Obama is no longer the President, neither is he running for anything. So despite the hatred of him which still exist in the bitter hearts of this despicable family, the venom seems now transferrable to any other candidate of color. Since California Senator Kamala Harris has been getting some press after her debate performance, she is now the new target of this imbecilic clan.
After Senator Harris’ breakout performance during the Democratic debates in Miami, a right-wing hack tweeted claiming she had no right to represent American blacks because her father grew up in Jamaica. Donal Trump Jnr boosted the tweet and received a Twitter backlash which forced him to delete the tweet.
The idea it seems, was to drive a wedge between African-Americans and Senator Harris’s candidacy.
The general idea is that Kamala Harris whose father is Jamaican and her mother of Indian ancestry, is not fit nor black enough to represent African-Americans.
There are just a couple of problems with that premise, Kamala Harris is not running to be president of [African-America], I don’t even know where that country is?
She is running for the presidency of the United States of America.
Secondly, Kamala Harris’s dad was not a member of the white planter class in my native Jamaica.
Donald Harris, is a prominent economics professor, but he is the offspring of African people who were kidnapped and dropped off as slaves, just as others were dropped off in the United States.
Trump Junior’s clear and unequivocal lack of intellect has borne out what I have always maintained, Racism is a degenerative disease which comes from ignorance.
There is no tangible reason to believe that Donald Trump Junior would have emerged a smarter man than his father, but it seems that Junior has emerged as a kind of dumbo which must be causing even his own father to question his abilities.
Of course, the strategy to tweet and delete may very well be a strategic continuation of the misinformation campaign waged in 2016, which got us to where we are today.
