Libs need simple PC labels as rapid retorts, as libs are usually not able to grasp complex thoughts or engage in rational conversation. The above sound bytes are usually the last retort when liberals walk away, confused and defeated.

Exactly!

I'm kind of embarrassed that you feel the president spewing inflammatory comments at American citizens is merely "just words," and no big deal.
Well firstly, Iím a brown minority female of Pacific Islander ethnicity. So that blows your weak hypothesis right out of the water.

Secondly, many people put power behind actions, not words. I am one of those people. I personally find people as affected as you by words to be weak in strength and character. So while you hold an opinion of me, I also hold one of you.

This could spell the end of the Republicans Party's effort in attracting minorities. Not because Trump is a racist but because he essentially told minority women you are not one of us. Minority women are the political leaders in their respective communities and people will follow wherever they go. We know Trump is racist, but as President he was speaks for his party.

As frighting as those faces seem to Conservatives, Liberals have been used to them for a long time. Actually its taken too long to see faces like them on the national stage. Better get used to them. Texas just swore in 19 black female judges. That's "good ole boy, Texas."

These women have more constituents in their districts than 15 of the red states have in theirs.

You would be shocked how the ones on the fence agree with Trump

You're assuming that all these minorities think like you and the others.....they don't, just look at the post above yours.

Anyone surprised that the Grand Old Party is a bunch of old racist white men?

Seems like it has been that way forever.
Except his comments weren't 'racist' and most Americans don't perceive them as such. Only triggered Democrats do.

Before you call the "Grand Old Party" a bunch of 'racist white men,' I suggest you study the history of the Democrat Party. They have been racist from the beginning.

Itís pretty goddamn funny how progressives profess to be fighting for rights for people like me, yet our opinions are immediately discounted if we donít follow the appropriate orthodoxy.
