Anyone saying its not racist is either stupid or defending it because they are racist themselves.
I don't care what the neo-Nazi sites you frequent say. It wasn't a racist statement.

You don't think it had anything to do with our crammed emergency rooms full of illegals getting their medical care causing local health care costs to skyrocket?
You don't think it has anything to do with the families who cannot speak a word of English at the grocery store pushing a cram full buggy of stuff paying for it with their SNAP card?
You don't think it has anything to do with all these illegals driving without a license or insurance, heaven help you if one hits you!

If you think the above represents hatred, bigotry and lacks the constraints of decency, so be it because in sections of our country, this it what we face everyday!

Let's just take that one point, Gregg. To what degree has Trump improved anyone's employment picture ? What has he done to work with companies to rebuild and re employ ?


Tariffs have only caused more harm than good, ask any major manufacturer.




Oh, and about those illegals driving uninsured, watch the TV program LIVE PD. The vast majority of non licensed, non insured drivers they stop are lily white.

Lily white people can be illegal, too. How do you know these white people aren't illegal. Are you a racist?

Suggesting this is some Machiavellian game Trump is playing is frankly just nuts. Trump has neither the intellect nor the patience to pattern a game that involves more than a reactionary tweetstorm. The man is the very epitome of a person having no ability to consider repercussions beforehand.

Suggesting he's playing chess is akin to suggesting an amoeba is a sentient being.

All of this, including the Democrat responses should alarm anyone with a love for the country. If this be the best or the brightest, if this be a realistic demonstration of the moral and ethical foundation of the U.S., if this represents in any measure at all what we can look forward to in the future ……????

I sincerely hope there is a candidate out there hitherto unannounced who exemplifies the best of the Democratic party who reluctantly steps up to the plate and assumes the mantle of co-operative compromise. Someone who will discuss healthcare, education, infrastructure, trade and illegal aliens with a view to what's the best for the country as a whole and not based upon solely what's going to perpetuate party fealty.

Considering he only won on electoral votes, and several of those states were on a razor thin margin, if just a small fraction of the people stated this as a reason (there were many) had not been fooled by Russian propaganda, then we might have a different President. just saying, your example doesn't really help your case here.


Also, "go back to XXXXX" is absolutely a Racial statement with a history. I lived in Charlotte NC in the late 70's, when public school bussing was still relatively new, and I saw first hand how the white kids used to taunt the black kids to "go back to Africa". Like the squad, all the black kids were US Citizens,and more than 75% were born in USA (I knew these kids).

Trump either is such a racist that he thought just because they were brown,they were from "craphole countries", or he's such a liar that he didn't care. if it's the latter, that is bad enough, but even still, any honest person can't escape the fact that he was pandering to his racist base by race-bating. ANYONE knows that "go back to #####" a racist comment.

Plus, it was not an isolated incident. Trump has a racist history, going back to his father's fortune, through Charlottesville, through his illegal ban on Muslims and many more stops along the way. Support him if that's what you want to do, but don't feign ignorant. You may be ignorant (I don't know), but you're not ignorant of the fact that his comments were race-driven and devisive. Nobody is that ignorant. NOBODY.
but you are wasting your breath with your intelligent post , it will go right over the heads
of the Trump SUPER fans.
They belong to the Trump MAGA SUPER FAN CLUB because they never have to question what Trump
says or does , all they have to do is knock down anyone not a SUPER fan.

Right about the same time that Democrats decided that anybody who didnt agree with them was a racist.

Or something.

Isn't it hilarious that leftists have created and inhabit a completely dystopian universe that only exists inside their heads? What drove them to this virtual reality? Obama's gone, Hillary lost, Trump won, socialism waned, and their red-hot hatred of America was exposed for all to see. I wonder if anyone else is as undeniably satisfied by this as I am. So satisfied. It's like a Thanksgiving feast, so good, and so much more to feast on in the coming years.

Silence on the issue isn't good enough, Republican's need to send a clear message that they are not going to back him no matter what. Not taking a stand only will embolden President Trump to do even more radical things in the future. They shouldn't support him unquestionably just because he is a Republican President, this is how dictatorships are formed, no one speaking up against what's wrong. When did this country become a Them against Us Nation? (Republicans vs Democrats)
What racist tweets?
