AFRICANGLOBE – “The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called ‘racist.’ I am afraid to be called racist,” bemoans an anonymous voter robo call reportedly directed at Super Tuesday GOP voters.
“Donald Trump is not a racist, but Donald Trump is not afraid. Don’t vote for a Cuban. Vote for Donald Trump,” the message says. The “Cubans” are Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, Trump’s rival GOP candidates who are both Cuban-American. The call recording takes aim at political correctness.
“It’s okay that few schools any more have a beautiful white children as the majority, but don’t call me racist,” says one recording of the call obtained by TPM. “Gradual Genocide against the white race is okay but don’t call me racist.”
The xenophobic robo calls were produced the American Freedom Party, a pro-Trump PAC and white nationalist group, according to Fox News Latino. Trump has shrugged off support from white power groups in the past, saying of KKK and Neo-Nazi support “ a lot of people like me.”
The calls were reported in Minnesota as well as Vermont, the home of Democratic senator Bernie Sanders. The robocalls are not authorized by Trump himself, who has visited Vermont during the primary season, saying that he would “love” to run against Bernie Sanders in the general election.
Rubio’s campaign demanded that Trump take a prominent public stand against the PAC’s advertising. “This is an outrageous robo-call that Donald Trump should immediately repudiate and demand that this group cease its operations,” Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos wrote in a statement. “This is the lowest form of campaigning, and is the exact same type of dirty tricks Donald Trump has been decrying for weeks now.”
