June 23, 2016 – A congressional candidate inspired by the presidential candidate Donald Trump has sparked outrage among other citizens by plastering the slogan Make America White Again on banners and billboards in eastern Tennessee.
The congressional candidate is Rich Tyler – an Independent running in the third district that includes the Chattanooga city. He almost immediately started to experience hell due to his racist spin on the slogan of the presumptive Republican presidential candidate – Make America Great Again.
The Republican Representative, Chuck Fleischmann, who is currently representing the district, condemned Mr. Tyler’s message and the billboard.
Ryan Haynes, the local Republican Party honcho also denounced Rich Tyler’s billboards saying that there is no room for this kind of hateful display in their political discourse. According to his statement, racism or any other disrespectful act should never be accepted and tolerated in all its forms in the 3rd Congressional District and all over the country.
So far, no statement has been received from the campaign management of Donald Trump. However, by Thursday, the offending billboards of Rich Tyler located near Benton, Tennessee were all taken down after the complaints of outraged residents.
Despite all these, Rich Tyler insisted that he had no hatred for people of color. According to his statement, all he wants is for America to go back to 1960’s Ozzie and Harriet time, when there were no violent crime, no break ins, and no mass immigration. But in a radio advertisement posted on Tyler’s official website, he declared that the Caucasian race… the progenitors and architects of high cultures and advanced civilization.
However, Tyler’s views on Donald Trump seem conflicted. On his website’s blog posts, Tyler calls Donald Trump as the latest stalking horse entity to be imposed upon the American electorate but also an inspiration. Tyler also wrote in his website that Trumps’ temporary ban advocacy on Muslim immigration as well as the wall construction on the Southern border has made a climate useful to conversation related to the elephant in the living room that no one wants to talk about – namely, the vital and urgent subject of race.
