"Those People"

“When people like yourselves turn on television and you see those people taking the knee when they're playing our great national anthem.” – "45"

It was at a rally for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange when the Eighth-Grader-in-Chief Donald Trump spoke those words to a "gathering" of his followers.

Such word phrasing is the definition of bigotry. It is the equation: "You" are better than "Them". It is the head of "One Tribe" fanning the fires of hate toward "The other Tribe".

It is classic Fascist rhetoric. Trump just wields these words at an eighth grade level. Spewing them in small portions whenever they come to his mind. See why he loves Twitter so much?

It is classic racist rhetoric. Trump's use of the phrase "those people" is clear. He certainly did not say to himself, "I am going say those people so my base know what I mean." No. Such phrases are so ingrained in the bigoted brain that it is just how they talk – it's natural to them. Everybody understands this... Except bigots.

"Those people" has been used for 200 years of American vernacular by upper class people to refer to a group that they think inferior, be it Indian, Chinese, Negro, Irish, Polish, Italian, etc. "Those people" are by inference, "lazy", "uneducated," "won't assimilate," "dirty," etc. The list is long and has a long American history.
