But....

Even as his in-laws were going through the process, Mr. Trump was denouncing it. In November, he tweeted, ďCHAIN MIGRATION must end now! Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil. NOT ACCEPTABLE!Ē



Guess those donít apply to Trump.

So explain how what he stated in his rally speach and what the crowd chanted was racist.

More the problem is that for those who agree with Trump and his way, they seem altogether also willing to accept the ways of a dictator, even to the point of promoting them, cheering them on. Good thing we have a constitution and the rule of law or just enough of these people could turn America into another casualty of fascism, the perfect breeding ground for any dictator, as history has clearly shown.

Word of caution, however. America is not immune from these sorts of dangerous influences!

'Face of Evil': Fascism Scholar Calls Out Trump Rally Crowd

An American philosopher and expert in fascism says the country is "facing an emergency" after what has been branded "one of the single most racist moments in modern American political history" at a Trump rally on Wednesday night.

The night before, Stanley had been left "shocked" after watching video of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where supporters chanted the words, "send her back," as the U.S. leader renewed his racist attacks against Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia when she was just eight years old.

"I am not easily shocked. But we are facing an emergency," the Yale professor and author of the book How Fascism Works wrote on Twitter

One need not be a professor to plainly see what a dangerous monstrosity Trump is.

You can rag on Trump all you want for his idiotic “go home” to native-born American women. Major Derp.

But were his words really racist? Well, if you believe they are, then you must also feel the same about Waters’ words. So ask yourself if you are able to be impartial and really think this out, or if you’re going to be blind to reality and just stick with “Trump’s a racist”.

An interesting read. We are definitely see this play out somewhat...except the complacent ones aren't the ones you think.

This is a quote from member "RINGWISE" from another thread.


Not a coincidence. Once they start branding everything that existed during that time as racist, the next step will be to call for the end of the Constitution, the Electoral College, the Bill of Rights, and the 2nd Amendment.


People seem to equate Trump to a dictator, but seeing all the things listed above attacked is far more scarier than whatever Trump can come up with. The demise of our country won't be from religious puritans but the far opposite side.

No, one only needs to be bias and politically motivated.

I'm retired now, with some time on my hands in the mornings to check the news, do emails and check in with this forum. I like to think I'm not stupid, but I keep wondering why I waste the time in this forum, reading stupid stuff. At first, I thought maybe countering the ignorance might serve some purpose (having worked a time in the education field), but then I came to realize that notion was proving ignorant too!
