And they didn't like when the labor started voting in people that looked like them to represent them.

A lot of it is pure and simple racism.
This is why you want to hear all aspects from residents and non residents.
When you get resident Californians posting things like this.
As a minority I don’t feel this way at all.

As Chick Hearn would have said "Slaaaaaaaaam Dunk".

Hearing other opinions allows my to question my own. If I'm wrong, then I learned something. I'm wrong a lot and I take a chance and shoot my mouth of with the benefit of learning something if I am wrong.
Win Win.

Yep, I don't either but it's clear who's doing the labeling here. Ironic how he could actually call other racists. I don't judge people by skin color.

Sort of like...AOC is proposing nothing short of what was proposed by FDR's administration in the New Deal era, but because she's a Latinx woman, she catches a lot of hatred from Republicans.

What do you call that? If it's not racism, then what is?

As I said, nobody hated California and bashed it to the extent it's happening now, when the state was 80%+ Anglo white.

Now that the state is plurality Latinx and Democratic-leaning, it is bashed incessantly by Anglo Trump supporters.

Just the facts, Sir.
I'm not white and I think AOC is a complete idiot. She is a cute idiot but looks shouldn't matter in politics.

She sounds like one of those chicks that got everything all the time because she's hot.

Interesting you used that phrase. In some circles using that phrase is very racist. Yet you accuse everyone that left California as being racist.

People will find any reason to think of themselves as victims.

"The idiom {calling a spade a spade} originates in the classical Greek of Plutarch's Apophthegmata Laconica, and was introduced into the English language in 1542 in Nicolas Udall's translation of the Apophthegmes, where Erasmus had seemingly replaced Plutarch's images of "trough" and "fig" with the more familiar "spade."

"First gathered by Erasmus, as follows:

Philippus aunswered, that the Macedonians wer feloes of no fyne witte in their termes but altogether grosse, clubbyshe, and rusticall, as they whiche had not the witte to calle a spade by any other name than a spade."


From

Call a spade a spade

Pure projection (and, IMO, you come across as a bitter person).

Who fits the bolded?

Can you name even one poster and prove it ?

I post in P&OC and here but, off the top of my head, I can't think of anyone else who does fairly regularly....and I would never vote for Trump, I'm not a Republican, and I'm not a racist.

If the bolded is true, then you should have no trouble citing plenty of examples....screen names, plus examples that demonstrate they are both Trump supporters, and that they are white. If you can't, then people should feel free to consider your claim to be meaningless.

I'd bet the truth is that there are posters that you don't like, and you assume they are Trump supporters, but in reality you really don't know if they are or not.
