just because you desperately want this to be true doesn't make it so.

It's hard to debate you on immigration when you believe all illegals are brown and black.

not racism...

I think the crowd chant is a bad bad bad look.. just terrible but that does not equate to racism. They were not chanting send a specific race or minority back as a whole. They were referring to specific individuals that they don't like (policy wise) and whom don't like them because they support Trump.

race was not in question...

No doubt you and most folks are the hard left will imply racism because lets be honest, that's your to go to play...

The problem with crying racism too often, soon the word has little to no value.... i hear so often nowadays that i immediately doubt the legitimacy of it..

My take:

Donald J. Trump
Keynote speaker at the 2019 "Genius" convention.

The vast majority of Americans disagree with "Congresswoman" Omar and her 3 step-sisters.

You got to let this one go.

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.
Eddie,

The people who chant that stuff are the same ones who spit on black people at lunch counters.

They are their descendants, and they're proudly anti-anyone who isn't like them.

I think we had the luxury of assuming those types of ideas were falling out of favor.

Alas, no.

At least we can bury the lie about "We have nothing against legal immigrants". Not that any of the Trumpistas ever managed to lie convincingly, but still...

If it's true? Oh that's right, your Liberal propaganda networks haven't told you about it yet.
