You clowns have called everything racist so much that word has lost any significance. The butt hurt is strong with this one.

Both sides make silly insults.

I could say you have a racist President on your side -- who partied with Epstein.....I could argue that isn't a good look for you.

But that's a silly thing to say...and hurling personal insults does nothing......but bring us down to Trump's level of play.

Except, this insult slinging started before Trump was elected and it all stemmed from the left, including one of your candidates.


While I don't agree with all the "commie" " jihadi" type of comments coming from the right, this is what happens after relentless "comrade" this and "white nationalist" that.

I agree 100% Putting a few CEO's in jail would go a long way to solve the problem. But this does not address the one sided trade deals that devastated our country!

He claimed in his "manifesto" he was ANTIFA affiliated and his motives were theirs. ANTIFA has praised him. They are a Democrat supporting and supported group. Yes, it would indeed be proper for ALL Democrats to condemn his actions. And we are only talking about ONE guy in this Twitter episode.


When questioned if she condemned actions by ANTIFA type like this terrorist incident Presely just clammed up and walked away with a smug look on her face. So what's your point here?

He, being the brash, uncouth jerk that he is, stood up there on that stage and said the words they were afraid to say, but that they wanted to hear. Once he began to free them from the constraints of decency, they were free to openly show their bigotry and hatred........they ate it up.

That is it in a nutshell.
Interesting reading. I've found that as well (closet bigots) - I know my acquaintances pretty well and they let out comments where you can tell they have racist beliefs - and unsurprsingly each and every one voted for Trump.
Hopefully all of these racist attacks and bloviating by Trump will get Americans out to vote. We've had some very poor voting turnout - embarrassing for our country -

Shall we play a game? Black lesbian woman and devote Republican voter, lets see what the left call her.


I will start, "traitor to your own race".


Oh no that comment isn't racist.


of course the left will attack her based on sexual preference or being a woman and still being a Republican voter also they have several angles to attack her.

They were called ugly names, and told "Go back to where you came from !"

For the President of this country to lower himself to that level shows what he is like inside and how he truly feels. I hope this is a wake up call to anyone whose ancestors heard those words, and they take offense at hearing it in 2019......long after that way of thinking should have gone away for good.
If trump has taught us anything, it is that a significant portion of our society are blatant racists. As are the spineless republicans who refused to admonish his statements. Hillary was right, this country IS full of deplorables. May they rot in hell.
