So, now we’re back to the old “deplorable” thing again.

Hillary Clinton is calling you.

Who hates America?

Don't worry, evilnewbie, if someone hated living in this country they aren't waiting around for your permission to move out of the country. They know they can leave.

The problem is that people like you are incredibly hypcocritcal. So when someone from talks about what they think are improvements that America can make to "make America Great again" if you agree with them, you're all for it. If you are opposed to their ideas you've acutally allowed yourself to buy into this ignorant ideal that "they hate America"
Put on your big girl pants and grow up and understand that we do not live in a dictatorship. Meaning we don't all have to agree with your views, or the views of our leaders, in order to live in the country.

Sorry, that wasn't what I meant. He did whip the crowd up, yes. I didn't watch him so I don't know what he said. I do know the crowd chanted send her back. It's all just so stupid.

If you didn’t watch it then why are you describing the rally as though you did?

Actually, you know what? It is not just you (not by a long shot), but many of the posts on the P&OC column are frustrating and angering me because of all the distortions going on, so I am taking a break for the rest of today, at least (although I will be back).

For all of you on both sides of the issue who have somehow managed to remain civil, I salute you.
What I am incredibly angered at and frustrated with is that the leader of the free world would stoop to something as stupid and incendiary as telling American citizens to go back to where they came from. It's beyond the pale. And that he would gleefully listen while the crowd chants send her back is even more disturbing. I remember when one woman during John McCain's campaign said something about Obama being a Muslim and McCain stopped her right there and corrected her. I guess those days are gone. We are now living in the gutter and playing to the lowest common denominator.

That's you deciding to use that term, not me.

It's no longer an argument that the GOP might tolerate racists, but they don't impact the platform or message. It's no longer an argument that the racists are a marginal slice of the GOP, not worth focusing on.

After watching a Trump rally, with attendees reiterating the racist attack from Trump, it's clear that the racism in the GOP is not a flaw, it's a feature.

Here is where we are: a minority person has a different view of what America should be doing than your traditional Trump-supporting Conservative. The response? "Shut up. YOU don't get a say in how WE run this country." Is that racist enough for you?

But what if you're a minority whose family has been in America for generations? "Shut up. YOU don't get a say in what it means to be AMERICAN. YOU are not one of US." Is that racist enough for you? How is that different than "we don't want your kind here?"

The message from Trump's base and by extension the GOP, by virtue of their silence, is minorities are only allowed in America by the good graces of White people. If minorities don't toe the line, they can GTFO, regardless of how long they've been here. Minorities don't get to tell White people how to run this country.

So at this point, is there any real counter argument against the claim that Trump's entire platform is based on not MAGA, but MAW(hite)A? Nooooope.
I'm a supporter of Trump, and will vote for him or whomever gets the GOP nomination. That being said, I really don't want to see the basis of his campaign on these 4 women and the dislike for them.


That being said, it doesn't matter what color or gender they are, I still don't like their agenda's. At least three of them, I don't know much about Pressley. And the quicker they can be voted out of their seats the better.

Because I can read about what happened. I make it a point to never watch him or listen to his voice. Are you denying they said that? I've seen many clips of people who attend Trump rallies. It ain't pretty.

No, the Trump family chain migration actually happened.
