Denounce Trump’s “Stand-by” Embrace of White Supremacists

Target: Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader

Goal: Censure President Trump for incendiary and inflammatory comments and behavior during presidential debate.

In a televised debate where the leader of the free world acted more like a preschool bully than the President of the United States, two moments stand out in this spectacle of lowlights. The first came when President Trump refused to condemn white supremacy. The president then took his dismantling of democracy a step further by seemingly encouraging anarchy if the elections results are not in his favor.

“Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists?” the moderator asked the president during the debate. By the end of a rambling exchange where he was asked time and again to simply say the words, all Trump had offered was a “stand down and stand by” shout-out to the Proud Boys (a group with a history of violence, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, and generally extremist views). He then diverted by claiming “this is not a right-wing problem”….a belief counter to intelligence assessments he called “wrong.”

The ”stand by” order, which the Proud Boys quickly and enthusiastically embraced, is particularly troubling given Trump’s later encouragement of supporters to show up and “watch the polls,” in violation of a clear regulatory process for selecting poll watchers. In the past, domestic terrorist groups like the white supremacist KKK would abuse poll-watching as a well-worn form of voter intimidation. The president followed up by once again casting doubt on the election and refuting a pledge to accept the results peacefully.

As President Trump continues to promote misinformation and dangerous rhetoric, someone needs to be the adult in the room. Sign the petition below to demand the United States Senate honor its oath to the country and finally hold this leader to account through censure.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator McConnell,

“Assassinating the presidency”: these are the words Bob Woodward, the man who spent hours interviewing President Trump, used to describe the president’s behavior during the first presidential debate. President Trump routinely flouted rules to which he agreed and long-held customs of decorum with almost constant interruptions, increasingly hostile diatribes, and personal insults. Within all the bluster, a dangerous thread of authoritarian impulse and destructive division emerged that cannot be forgotten.

The president, much like he did in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy, refused to condemn white supremacy…in stark rebuke of his own intelligence agencies’ assessment of far-right extremism as a looming national security threat. Worse yet, he directly told one of these groups with a documented history of violence to “stand by.” Every day in the lead-up to a crucial election, this president actively encourages civil unrest and reigns doubt and decimation upon the democratic process he took an oath to uphold and protect.

Twitter has shown more vigilance than the United States Senate in holding this president to account for his dangerous rhetoric and false claims. You will likely remain silent and seek diversions, as you have with President Trump’s other outrageous public comments and behavior. We implore you to act against this trend, to preserve the integrity of this highest office, and to finally speak out.

Censure this man and show the American people you are beholden not to political power acquired ty selling your souls but to them and their best interests.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

Proud Boys are on TAPE SAYING TO KILL PEOPLE.Go and find it. People like me will run the trash out of N.Y. Chapter in NY. Always at RepubliKKKan office in N.Y.

      • HOW DO YOU PLAN ON DOING THAT? I’D REALLY LIKE TO HEAR YOUR PLAN.YOUR MAN CRAZY JOE GAVE THE EULOGY FOR THE GRAND WIZARD OF THE KKK, ROBERT BYRD. THE DEMOCORRUPTS REFUSE TO CONDEMN ANTIFA AND BLM. ‘….TAPE SAYING TO KILL PEOPLE’, BLM AND ANTIFA ARE SAYING ‘KILL THE POLICE’,’I HOPE YOU DIE'(ABOUT COPS). ANTIFA AND BLM HAVE KILLED FOURTEEN CHILDREN; THE YOUNGEST A THREE MONTH OLD THE BABY WAS SHOT IN THE EYE. THEY HAVE BURNED DOWN BUILDINGS, RIOTED, KILLED, VANDALIZED AND ATTACKED INNOCENT PEOPLE, LOOK IT UP. WHO ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE, THE PRESIDENT? LOL!!!!!

      • Google Patriot Front. Trash were in my neighborhood. Buddies of Proud Biys who have chapter in N.Y. Always seen coming out of RepubliKKKan office in Manhattan. Two are in jail for 4 years.

        • YOUR HOMIES THE DEMOCORRUPTS ARE HEADING STRAIGHT TO JAIL WHEN JOHN DURHAM AND BILL BARR COMPLETE THEIR INVESTIGATIONS WHICH WILL BE SOON. THEY WERE BEHIND THE FAKE RUSSIAN COLLUSION; THERE IS SO MUCH INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE AGAINST THESE CAREER CRIMINALS. YOU CAN GOOGLE ‘WHAT IS JOHN DURHAM INVESTIGATING?’ THEY ARE ALSO INVESTIGATING CROOKED HILARY FOR FRAMING THE PRESIDENT, DURHAM HAS CROOKED HILARY’S EMAIL PROVING THAT SHE STARTED THIS, AS DID OBAMMIE, STROVK, PAGE, BRUCE AND NELLIE ORR AND SO MANY MORE. THE DEMOCORRUPTS HAVE ALSO BEEN CAUGHT THROWING AWAY BALLOTS THAT FAVORED YOUR PRESIDENT; THEY THREW BAGS AND BAGS OF MAIL IN BALLOTS BEHIND BUILDINGS AND HAVE EVEN THROWN OUT BALLOTS FROM THE MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN BECAUSE THEY WERE IN THE PRESIDENT’S FAVOR. THERE WERE AT LEAST A COUPLE OF GUYS HARVESTING BALLOTS FROM NURSING HOMES AND BALLOTS THAT WERE NOT FILLED OUT, THEY ADMITTED ON VIDEO THAT ILHAN OMAR PAID THEM TO DO IT, THANKFULLY LAW ENFORCEMENT CAUGHT THEM AND THEY WILL BE PROSECUTED. CRAZY JOE HAS A LONG, LONG HISTORY OF BEING A RACIST. HE HAS SAID ‘IF YOU DON’T VOTE FOR ME THEN YOU AIN’T BLACK’, THEY GOING TO PUT YA’LL BACK IN CHAINS’, ‘I DON’T WANT MY KIDS TO GROW UP IN A RACIAL JUNGLE’,’YOU CAN’T OWN A 7-11 OR DUNCAN DONUTS IF YOU DON’T HAVE A SLIGHT INDIAN ACCENT, NO, I MEAN IT’ AND HE CHUCKLES. (ABOUT REPARATIONS) ‘I’LL BE DAMNED IF I’M GOING TO PAY FOR THE SINS OF THE FATHER’.’TWO ARE IN JAIL FOR FOUR YEARS’, WHO ARE THEY? PROOF PLEASE.

        • LMAO!!! Trumptard. He changed over the years. NEVER condemned preppie killer who was white but Central Park Five. LETS HANG THEM!! Where is your video where he claimed he never knew David Duke?

          • LMAO!!!!!PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS AND STOP WATCHING CNN AND MSDNC. HE NEVER SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW HIM,THAT’S WHY HE CONDEMNED HIM, BUT CRAZY JOE NEVER CONDEMNED THE KKK (ROBERT BYRD WAS A VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF HIS AND WAS CROOKED HILARY’S MENTOR, WHICH SHE ADMITTED TOO. YOU CAN LOOK IT UP. ‘HE NEVER CONDEMNED THE…’, HE WASN’T THE PRESIDENT YET, DIPSHIT.

      • IF YOU STOP WATCHING CNN AND MSDNC THEN YOU WILL SEE THAT HE HAS BEEN DENOUNCING IT SINCE 2016, LOOK IT UP.

    • Really. Are these people blind. My God.

    • Gerk Gillian says:

      Let’s start with ONCE!!

    • Doesn’t matter, they only listen to what they want to listen to and are deaf to everything else.

  2. Gillian, apparently he has to denounce it at every opportunity despite having done so publicly in the past. This petition simply shows the ignorance of the left. And at this point almost two hundred ignorant people have signed a petition asking for something that’s already been done. The stupidity of the left reeks on this site. Why don’t y’all petition for something that actually matters? Next thing you know that Gilda idiot will be on here with her foul mouth adding to the already high level of silly crap.

  3. Twit in chief retweeted WHITE POWER from his supporters. Why should racist in chief denounce any of the trash?

  4. I think someone should put that tape where pos in chief denied knowing David Duke. AND THEN tRump ON TAPE SAYING HE KNOWS DAVID DUKE.

    • Pam Woodard says:

      There are numerous videos of Trump denouncing David Duke and white supremacy in general. Do you just hang out here all day every day making up lies and insulting people? I’ve seen your name a lot. It’s like you have a perverse obsession with Trump. Get a hobby or something. I honestly feel bad for you. There are meds you can take to help with your issues.

  5. Sadly, he thrives on lies, cheating, deceit and profits for him and has made it clear he cares nothing for the welfare of the rest of us that live in the United States. A real POS – IN MY OPINION

  6. This is one ridiculous petition lmao. Can’t wait for 4 more years!

  7. Jacqueline says:

    Stand bye LIE DOWN, you’re in hospital 😂😂.

  8. Trump is a morbidly obese, repulsive, pathological liar, criminal not to mention imbecile. Deport the freak or put him in a cage with his white supremist buddies!!!!!!

  9. DO NOT CENSURE him! Why hide his racism? Everyone needs to know before voting day exactly what he stands for! If you are a democrat, you don’t want him to be censured!!! Let him dig his grave–deeper.

  10. Jose Espino says:

    Well it looks like Forcechange.com has become a total anti Trump petition site. There is al least one petition against the president found in Forcechange.com. On the other hand I never see Biden even mentioned. Whether some like it or not Trump is the president and hopefully he will be it again. Biden would have been a great president fifty years ago, but today we need a president that would whip domestic and abroad communist radicals ass back in place.

  11. HOW ABOUT DEMOCORRUPTS DENOUNCE ANTIFA AND BLM? YOU CAN’T DENY ALL THE MAYHEM THEY HAVE CAUSED, THERE HAVE BEEN FOURTEEN CHILDREN MURDERED BY THESE CAREER CRIMINALS. THE YOUNGEST VICTIM WAS A THREE MONTH OLD BABY SHOT IN THE EYE AND ALL HAVE BEEN IN LIBERAL RUN CITIES. CLEAN YOUR OWN BACK YARD , FIRST!

  12. Oh my. The sissy liberals again whining about Trump. Did Biden denouce Antifa. Antifa are violent against peaceful rallys. What about liberal leaders telling people to assault Trump supporters. What about BLM burning down precints and property. STFU! LIBERALS ARE FUCKING PUNKS. ALWAYS WHINE AND CRY ABOUT EVERYTHING TRUMP. SENSITIVE PUSSIES SHOULD STAY HOME AND NEVER COME OUT BECAUSE YOU ARE SO OFFENDED AT EVERY WORD. AMERICANS ARE TIRED OF YOUR SHITTY FITS. IF TRUMP FARTS YOU CREATE A PETITION>

    TRUMP/PENCE 2020

  13. THE BLUE WAVE IS COMING.
