NBC, Univision political correctness Trumps straight talk
Written by 

trump2When Donald Trump announced for President, he made some strong statements about the immigration problems facing our nation. He said that Mexico was “bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people." In essence, Trump noted that Mexico was not sending their scientists and scholars to America.


In his speech, he mentioned the while immigrants were taking jobs in this country, corporations like Ford are setting up plants in Mexico. To deal with the crisis, Trump vowed to build a border fence and have Mexico pay for it.

This kind of tough talk resonated with millions of Americans who have seen no action on the border for decades. In the latest New Hampshire GOP poll, Trump has rocketed to second place, behind only Jeb Bush. This shows that Americans are tired of the influx of illegal immigrants and the non-existent border security. Of course, illegal aliens commit crimes, receive federal benefits and take jobs away from law abiding citizens. 

It is an outrage that our borders are not secure. In fact, no other nation in the world has such wide open borders with such generous benefits for illegal aliens. Donald Trump wants this giveaway of American jobs and federal incentives to end. He wants to secure our border and improve our national security. These are goals that all Americans should applaud; however, in our politically correct society, such goals are too controversial.

In the aftermath of his announcement, NBC “fired” Trump from his show “Celebrity Apprentice” and said they would not air the Miss USA or Miss Universe pageants that they co-own with the Donald. The illegal immigration comments were also too controversial for Univision, which also dropped the beauty pageants from their broadcast schedule. Thus, the pageants have no broadcast network at the present time and the “Celebrity Apprentice” will proceed with another celebrity next season.

Both networks succumbed to the pressure of Hispanic groups and the ever present specter of political correctness. Clearly, Trump did not lie about the border problems, but, these networks and the politicians in Washington, who are funded by special interests, do not want to deal with the problem. Democrats benefit from the cheap votes and the big business supporters of the GOP benefit from the cheap labor. The ones who are the casualties of the open border policy are the Americans who lose their jobs or become victims to the criminal activity of illegal aliens.

The good news is that Trump is not like the other politicians who would have apologized or backtracked from the controversial comments. He is doubling down and firing back at NBC and Univision, threatening to sue them. In a priceless statement, Trump blasted NBC as the network that “will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won't stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be."

How true, America today is a nation filled with people who are afraid to “tell it like it is.” Fortunately, one of these truth tellers is running for President. Let’s see if the American people want the truth or if they want to maintain their belief in fiction, supported only by politically correct lies.

Hopefully, as the campaign progresses, Trump will stand firm with this message. If so, he will continue to find support from Americans who have been ignored for decades. Today, our problems are so severe, it is time for not only tough talk, but, more importantly, strong action. Political correctness has done incredible damage. It is a very serious affliction on this country that will eventually destroy America if it is not pulled up by the roots and finally eradicated.
