Racist Donald Trump in bunker, parody song


This 1 June 2020 satiric music video from Britain is called Lurleen Trumpkin – Bunker With Me Tonight.

It is a parody of the song Bunk with me tonight, from The Simpsons.

It is about Donald Trump hiding in the White House bunker, being afraid of demonstrators against the police murder of George Floyd.

It says about itself:

Donald Trump‘s hidden Lurleen Lumpkin tribute act.

LYRICS:

In this White House
I’m turning all the lights out
Feels like Hitler’s final days
I’m looking for a hideout for the night

So I might ask you to bunker with me tonight
Bunker with me tonight, oh
Bunker with me tonight
I’m asking: will you bunker with me tonight?

George Floyd mass protests in the US: Latest developments | DW News

Another night of unrest in the US with protests in some 75 cities, after the death of George Floyd, a black man in police custody. The national guard has been deployed in a number of states. Curfews were extended in major cities as police struggle to contain the situation. And there’s been a memorial for George Floyd in Minneapolis, where he died a week ago after an officer knelt on his neck.

Earlier in Minneapolis, a truck drove through a crowd of protesters on a highway overpass. Miraculously, it appears only one person was slightly injured.

How do you kneel on a neck for nine minutes?

MINNEAPOLIS COPS APPEAR TO FIRE PAINT ROUNDS AT PEOPLE ON PORCH A video posted to social media appears to show Minneapolis police firing paint rounds at people who were standing on their front porch Saturday night, simply because the people did not get inside the house when ordered to. In the video, some two dozen police, clad in riot gear and accompanied by a tank, can be seen trotting down a quiet residential street, yelling: “Get inside! Get in your house, now! Let’s go!” As people stand on the porch of one house filming the police, someone yells: “Light ’em up!” The police turn, and at least one fires a projectile at the people on the porch, who scream and run indoors.

TRUMP SAYS ANTIFA WILL BE DESIGNATED A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION Trump said the U.S. will designate anti-fascist protesters known as antifa as a terrorist organization amid nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd. Trump, falsely conflating peaceful protests with lawless violence, announced his intentions on Twitter. He blamed “radical left anarchists,” as well as the media, for stirring up trouble in various cities and urged local leaders to shut their demonstrations down “before it is too late!” An American Civil Liberties Union official, responding to Trump’s terrorism call for antifa, called it “abused and misused.” [HuffPost]

CORNEL WEST: WE’RE WITNESSING THE COLLAPSE OF THE LEGITIMACY OF LEADERSHIP Black activist and prominent social critic Cornel West linked the ongoing protests in America to anger over the “vicious legacy of white supremacy” and the “collapse of the legitimacy of leadership.” “The beautiful thing is we’re seeing citizens who are caring and concerned. They’re hitting the streets,” the Harvard Divinity School professor said. “The problem is we have a system that’s not responding and seems to be unable to respond,” he added. [HuffPost]

Trump smears American anti-George Floyd murder demonstrators


Mourners gather to place flowers at a makeshift memorial for George Floyd at the corner of Chicago Avenue and East 38th Street in Minneapolis in the USA

This photo shows flowers at a makeshift memorial for George Floyd at the corner of Chicago Avenue and East 38th Street in Minneapolis in the USA.

Donald Trump now spends most time on threatening anti-murder demonstrators with military violence. In a small part of what he said, he called the death of George Floyd ‘a tragedy’. Ever since ancient Greece, a ‘tragedy’ is something caused by Fate, by the gods, or by God, in which humans (like Minneapolis police) are supposedly not guilty.

Donald Trump’s fellow Republican party member, a mayor in Mississippi, has said what he thinks: that Minneapolis police were supposedly correct in murdering George Floyd. Trump may think so too, though he does not openly say it.

Trump now does openly say that neo-nazis are not terrorists, but that their opponents supposedly are.

Translated from Dutch (‘centre-right’) daily Algemeen Dagblad today:

US President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he will ban the left-radical protest movement Antifa (Anti-fascist action) as a domestic terror group. According to Trump, anti-fascists, who strongly oppose neo-Nazis, racism and fascism, are partly responsible for the current riots in the United States. It is not known whether they are actually involved in this.

Never before has an organization or movement been labelled a domestic terror group in the US.

Indeed. Certainly not the neo-nazis who do most of the murderous terrorist violence in the USA.

In addition, Antifa is a decentralized movement without leaders.

Trump threatens more violence as protests continue across US

US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has again threatened anti-racist protesters with violence as nationwide demonstrations continued over the killing of African-American George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis.

Mr Trump warned protesters on Saturday that anyone who entered the grounds of the White House would be met with “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen.”

Last week he had revamped a chilling racist slogan, used as a battle cry against the civil rights movement of the 1960s, as he wrote on Twitter: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

‘When the looting starts, the shooting starts’: Trump revives segregationist war cry. Whether he did so subconsciously, by quoting a segregationist police chief who opposed the 1960s civil rights movement, Trump has picked up the mantle of US white supremacism once again, writes CJ ATKINS.

From daily News Line in Britain:

CURFEWS are now in place in cities right across the USA after President Trump sent in the National Guard to try and drive back the masses. They are refusing to leave the streets until the police officers responsible for choking George Floyd to death in the city of Minneapolis have been indicted and sentenced for murder.

The curfews are being defied in city after city, while riot police supported by units of the National Guard have fired on protesters using tear gas and rubber bullets. …

White policeman Derek Chauvin is charged with murdering Floyd, 46, in Minneapolis and is due to appear in court today. …

Now on a daily basis, large crowds of protesters are taunting National Guard officers outside the White House in Washington, DC.

However, demonstrators are already celebrating a victory. This took place in Flint, Michigan, where sheriff Chris Swanson took off the riot helmets of his men, laid down batons and asked protesters what they wanted. After hugs and high fives, they chanted ‘walk with us’ and the sheriff did.

Trump was at bay yesterday as he launched a private American space programme to make billions of dollars more for the super-rich. He pledged to the super-rich – ‘I will not allow angry mobs to dominate – it won’t happen.’ …

The brother of George Floyd revealed he was not given ‘the opportunity to even speak’ when President Donald Trump called the Floyd family on Friday. ‘It was so fast. He didn’t give me the opportunity to even speak. It was hard,’ Philonise Floyd told MSNBC.

‘I was trying to talk to him but he just kept like pushing me off like “I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about,” he said. And I just told him I want justice, I said I can’t believe they committed a modern-day lynching in broad daylight. I can’t stand it,’ Philonise Floyd added. ‘I just want to understand, why do we have to go through this?’ …

However, the masses of US workers and youth who have been driven to the streets by the last straw of the police murder have now decided that their situation has become so desperate that they are willing to brave the coronavirus and the guns and gas of the police and the National Guard to bring down Trump. …

At the same time, Trump has insisted that the richest capitalist country on the globe should not let the struggle against coronavirus interfere with the bosses profits. This has led to the richest country in the world with the most advanced science having 1,770,210 cases of the virus in the big US cities and 103,776 dead. In the richest and most advanced capitalist country on the planet, workers lives are expendable, profit is the god to be worshipped.

The US trade unions must not stand by and watch this struggle. They must support it and call a general strike to bring down the Trump regime.
