Hillary Clinton launched a silly attack on Donald Trump and his supporters, calling them “racist” in an attempt to scare blacks and whites.

Hillary named the “alt-right” as a “conspiracy theorist” movement led by “Vladimir Putin.” She tried to discredit Breitbart News by citing the deceitful Southern Poverty Law Center. Hillary Clinton, one of the coldest human beings alive, accused Alex Jones ( of having a “dark heart.” She sanctimoniously condemned David Duke as a “racist” former KKK leader. (Apparently she only likes Democrat KKK recruiters who “mentor” her.)

I encourage conservatives, the alt-right, and all decent people to unite. And where you disagree, debate but do not hate one another.

As I understand, the alt-right want America and our citizens put first — nationalism over globalism and mass immigration. They mock political correctness and the farcical notion of “racism.” And they fight back against the attack on whites and men.

I agree with those things. If whites (and men) continue their decline, as blacks did the past 60 years, it’s “Adios, America.” (Ann Coulter is 100% right.)

If you disagree, let’s all talk.

Our battle, in reality, is not merely “ideological” or “political,” but spiritual. You may have perfect logic, all the right facts and politics, but with anger, you lose.

Anger destroys your children’s innocence, debilitates their spirit, and turns them away from you. Anger blinds you to reality and separates you from others. You play “God” when you pass judgment on fellow human beings.

Decent people should not be divided.

Many of my conservative friends reject Trump; I am for Trump all the way. On my TV show “The Fallen State,” I discussed Trump with longtime friends and Trump detractors Andrew Klavan and, recently, Ben Shapiro. On radio, I interviewed Cameron Khansarinia of the Harvard Republican Club which disavowed Trump.

We talked and listened to one another; if I could get them to see what I see, fine, and if not, fine. We can disagree and remain friends.

Donald Trump has attracted many atheists, homosexuals, blacks and others outside traditional conservatism who disagree with the radicals’ assault on Christians and men.

In Hillary’s speech attacking the alt-right, she read Breitbart headlines from writer Milo Yiannopoulos about feminism, birth control and gun control; even though Hillary pretended to be appalled by the lines, they were funny, powerful, and true.

I interviewed Trump supporter Mike Cernovich, a very successful author (“Gorilla Mindset”), influential reporter and lawyer. He left Christianity, at least for a time, as many young people do. He seems to welcome the alt-right; he’s sharp and cutting in his political dialogue. More importantly, he recognizes the deeper need for calm emotions and restoration of manhood.

It’s true that “alt-right types” ridicule conservatives who reject Trump, calling them “cucks” whom they feel betray America.

As adults, conservatives should not hate the name-callers, nor join the liberals in calling people “racist.” If you hate your enemies, you can never win them over, nor learn from them.

As a Tea Party leader and conservative Republican, I call many politicians “RINOs” for betraying God, country, and family. Yet I don’t resent them.

I am unconcerned what anyone thinks of me — I love truth.

Anger blinds you. With anger, you may reject those you shouldn’t.

Popular podcaster Stefan Molyneux (Freedomain Radio) recently interviewed me at length. Although he’s philosophical, and not necessarily religious, the conversation was as valuable as those with my longtime friend Dennis Prager and many great Christian hosts.

Molyneux and I discussed the reality that “racism” does not exist, the destruction that anger causes, and the desperate need for fathers and forgiveness.

I must expose a terrible lie, popular among blind people: That “racism” exists, and that it’s worse than the judgment or sin of “non-racist” people.

For instance, David Duke’s problem — like anyone else’s — is anger, not “racism” or “ignorance.” You can have all the knowledge in the world, PhD’s, law degrees, yet still be blind.

In truth, your anger toward your own family members (or toward “injustice” in the world) is no better than David Duke’s anger toward “Jews” or whomever/whatever he may resent.

In contrast, I have never seen anger in Donald Trump. He uses insults and harsh language, as men in battle do. He may call himself “angry,” but I have not seen his demeanor change. This is what allows him to think on his feet, speak the truth boldly and effectively, and win.

I have no anger. Yet I do not hold back. I strongly tell the truth. At 67, I can yell and shout down the worst, most radical Black Lives Matter agitator, and feel nothing inwardly against her.

I am not angry at Black Lives Matter, Louis Farrakhan, Obama, Crooked Hillary, et al., although they take so many into hell. I understand the bitter spirit that drives them; they cannot help it. Evil’s job is to do evil.

People on the side of good — our job is to fight evil without hatred, to overcome evil with good. Anger without resentment is righteous anger.
