So were folks bused in from somewhere else, some far more hateful place?
Good for the mayor! I fully agree with him. I wouldn't be surprised if the GOP had people bused in from all over.

<sigh> Oh, please. Nothing the President said at his rally was either bigoted or racist.

There is no one more divisive right now than these four, "The Squad," and the Democrat Party, which has chosen to revive and actually foment racism in this country.

Those who defend President Trump's "Go Back . . ." tweets remind me of my years in the US Navy. During the early 80's, I was a Hole Snipe and one of few non-whites working in the ship's propulsion spaces. Among us were several rednecks and a few outright racist. One of the most vocal racists made it a point to frequently yell out, "Hey! Hey! Hey! If you ain't white, you ain't right!"

This was not funny to me. It did not make me laugh as it did most of my white shipmates. Each time my shipmates noticed I was the only one not laughing they'd tell me, "Don't mind Jim. He's just joking around and blowing off a little steam."

No. Jim was not joking nor blowing off steam. Jim was a racist. And my white shipmates - the ones who assured me it was all a joke - were complicit in Jim's racism.

President Trump's tweets are not being misunderstood nor blown out of proportion. His tweets are racially charged and hate filled. Those who hurl themselves at the defense of Trump's tweets are accomplices to Our President's racism.

Once again: "It seems to me that unless you are actually from another country in recent generations, you have idea what phrases like "go back to where you came from" feel like. That's why many of you here come up with the most ridiculous defenses to bigoted Trump's rhetoric. "

I'm guessing the homeless man MS-13 killed for sleeping in the rec center they considered to be "their territory" knew EXACTLY how that felt. 19 of the 22 arrested for the 24 murders in the span of 2 years are illegal aliens who snuck across the southern border.

And so? You want us to care about your opinions for a change?

What about all Illhan Omar's downplaying 9/11 attacks. Do you care how that makes us feel? No you don't.
Do you care about your party throwing around "white privilege" and all this intersectionality nonsense, multiple genders, men using the female bathrooms. Do you care? No.

So we don't care. In fact we're happy. We're happy you're offended.

Leftists never learn. Trump filled that arena in Greenville beyond capacity. Shame on the mayor for calling out people exercising their first amendment right.
He should consider changing parties and be the democrat he acts like !!!

Did the idiot Mayor condemn the words, actions, or behavior of the hate filled clown "squad" ?
