Opinion: ‘Trump Sisters’ mean business
You might have heard about Diamond and Silk, former Democrats that have wholeheartedly jumped aboard the “Trump Train.” Theirs is no gimmicky play, either. The African-American sisters hailing from Fayetteville, N.C., have a series of online videos for your viewing consumption and consideration (the link for one such production, this one a Fox interview from last week, is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PT3cQ0rTx4). When you sense the zeal with which they speak, it’s not a fabrication, no puff, no comedy. They are as passionate about getting off “the Democrat Plantation” as they are standing tall – and maybe a tad loud – for the Republican billionaire candidate for president. They take shots at the Clintons, much of it rooted in the past. There is, to say the least, an element of fun in their delivery, but it’s also highly thought provoking. On www.diamondandsilkinc.com, you will find a Ditch and Switch page, which states, among other things, this: “DITCH the Democrat Party and SWITCH to Republican Party to vote for Mr. Donald J. Trump in the primaries. Look below to see if your state is a Closed or Open primary voting state.” They have become bona fide political activists, and, yes, they are gut-level serious in their delivery. Listen to their message and see if, to you, it is as rooted in good sense as it is to us. Granted, they are imploring folks to get out and vote for their candidate, but voting for anyone is better than not voting at all. As we’ve stated previously, voting is a right and a responsibility, and it needs to be accorded the seriousness it deserves … yes, even if Diamond and Silk make you chuckle. The message is clear.
