Is Colin Powell a Racist Elitist? Says Trump Appeals to “Poor White Folks” in Email to Rich White Folk

by Scott Creighton

Really? Really, you lying war-crime committing asshole? “Poor white folks”?

“Agree, press has started asking Peggy and me about our use. We have answered 3 IG questionaire [sic] and are clean. A newsie asked today to interview me on my use. Told them to read my book, Chapter on “Brainware.” They are going to d**k up the legitimate and necessary use of emails with friggin record rules. I saw email more like a telephone than a cable machine. As long as the stuff is unclassified. I had some secure machine. Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris. I told you about the gig I lost at a University because she so overcharged them they came under heat and couldn’t any fees for awhile. I should send her a bill. Trump conceivable take it to the convention. He appeals to the worst angels of the GOP nature and poor white folks. Just finished a book by a guy named Llosa about loss of culture. It was reviewed in the WSJ last week. Culture is going and with it the ties that bind. An increasing theme in my speeches—–celebrification of our society..FOX got the highest ratings ever after the debate so Ailes makes friends again with Trump and sends Megyn Kelly off to get over her period. Hey, noting personal, just business.” Colin Powell, Aug. 2015 to Jeffrey Leeds (rich white folk)

And just for clarification:


That email was sent to Jeffrey Leeds, co-founder of Leeds Equity Partners, of which Colin Powell sits on the board of directors. Jeffrey Leeds is definitely in what Colin Powell would call the “rich white folk” group.

I wonder what Colin thinks of all those poor brown folks he helped bomb to death in Iraq over those WMDs he lied about to the UN Security Council back in 2003. How many was that? A million?

Someone said this morning on Morning Joe that Colin Powell was “unassailable” because Trump dared to remind all his “poor white folk” followers on Twitter about Colin lying to the UNSC. They all agreed that we have to stop assailing Colin for the “one thing” he did wrong back then.

One thing?

Is that kinda like a husband and father going off one night and killing his wife in a fit of drug induced rage and then going to court saying “hey, don’t hold that ONE THING against me.”? Is it something like that… or is it about a million times worse?

One thing. Wow. What a country this is becoming, huh?

  1. I assume he’s referring to Mario Vargas Llosa, recipient of the 2005 Irving Kristol Award. No surprise there.

  2. To this ‘Poor White Folk’,Powell is typical DC scrap-grade timber
