A sign of just how frightened the left is of someone is how vehemently they attack, slinging the terms “racist” or “sexist” at him or her.GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has inspired fear like no one else in some time. His willingness to call a spade a spade (no, not a racist term, folks — look it up) and shatter the political correctness destroying our country has clearly struck a deep nerve with Americans.
The political correctness Trump’s exposing is, of course, also closely tied to the progressive left’s own agenda to transform America — and so Trump’s hitting a bit too close to home for many.So, as Trump’s support continues to defy expectations, the left only amplifies its attacks on Trump’s supposed bigotry and misogyny.
One black woman who knows Trump and his family well has had enough. And she’s come out to voice her own truth about the man who has been the target of so much vitriol this election cycle.
Lynne Patton is the director of the Eric Trump Foundation and assistant to Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. She says her YouTube video, in which she shares a letter she wrote about her own experiences with the Trump family, was done on her own, purposely without the involvement of Trump or his family.(H/T Western Journalism)
“I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate-mongering groups, campaigns and messaging,” wrote Patton.
“To the skeptics who will undoubtedly claim that I am doing this at the behest of the Trump family or with the promise of reward, I deliberately chose not to seek their approval nor council in advance to this video for fear that there would be more concern for me and its potential viral ramifications than they would be for themselves and the fact that quite simply this is the right thing to do,” said Patton, who posted the video on YouTube and has been flooded with comments on Twitter.“The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends,” she said. “They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world – hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked.”
Patton defended Trump’s policies for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. and the construction of a wall with Mexico.
“To equate racism with my boss’ call for a temporary moratorium on a flawed immigration system that radical Islamic terrorists continue to exploit, or the construction of an impassible wall to protect our borders from the influx of illegal drugs, is not only incendiary, it’s wholly irresponsible and only serves to embolden the very hatred these draconian groups espouse,” she wrote, later criticizing “paid protesters” who target Trump.See for yourself why the video has gone mega-viral in the hours since it was posted. To the skeptical among us, watch all the way through to judge for yourself Ms. Patton’s sincerity.
I (Michelle Jesse), for one, applaud Ms. Patton’s courage in going public with her own thoughts in such a vitriolic environment. It takes courage and integrity to stand up and speak out for what one believes in — especially when you know there will be many ready to pounce. Whether you’re for Trump or not, can we all agree we need more of that?
We also need more of real Americans sharing their experiences and deciding for themselves — rather than letting the left and its media define and propagate a narrative that serves their agenda.
