Comment: Drumpf to Trump

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

His name is my name, too

Whenever we go out

The people always shout

There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt


Da-da-da-da-daThe song “John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt” originated during the wave of German immigration to the US, which brought Donald Trump’s grandfather to the US. The song started as a vaudeville song intended to mock the way German names sounded to the American ear. It was an ethnic slur. New immigrants were regarded as undesirable, prone to crime, disease-laden and unassimilable into American culture. They had funny names and odd foods like “Frankfurters”. Yet the Frankfurters became ubiquitous American hot dogs, and the Drumpfs became Trumps regarding themselves as true Americans.

This is the genius of America–that people from varied backgrounds can not only live together in peace but prosper together. Somali, Mexican and Bangladeshi immigrants today are on the same journey as the Drumpfs, and are critical to the refueling of the American Dream. Those who fear and act against immigration under the guise of “America First” mistake the essence of America, undercut its glory, and are oblivious to their own family history in America.
