I love how Chip is the EXACT embodiment of what turns off voters by emphatically declaring me a R word. He doesn't even know me other than by my general opinions on things and that I voted for #45. Go back in time and recall I couldn't stand Bush, couldn't stand the wars and then when the Dems swept into power claiming they'd end it. Nada, they continued. Probably thinks I'm a facist, sexist and all the ists. It's quite sad. I can't even watch a show like Pose w/o him wondering why. I bet if I were black he'd question my legitimacy. It's sad but you are full left, white guilt, cater to folks who declare their disgust and hate for America and LOVE it and by extension you do to. So that's where the divide is. I'm the R word and he's mentally ill.

I honestly don't give a shit. Your opinion means nothing to me. No person with a conscience voted for Trump in 2016. We knew he had raped/sexually assaulted multiple women. We knew he was a racist. We knew he was a shitty businessman. Yet... you voted for him. Which means you were OK with what he's done. You can't claim ignorance.

If a lot of people think it's okay for a top government representative to tell American citizens to "go back" because they complain about the government, we are one step closer to fascism.

The intention of the tweet was clearly to point out the supposed hypocrisy of their trying to fix America with socialist policy, not to express hatred for brown women.

But the socialist policies they want are the ones from Scandinavia and other European countries, not Latin America. It doesn’t make any sense, just plays on their heritage being different.

But a hypocritical part of the Dems side is that saying “the migrants deserve a chance at a better life” is basically the same as saying “their countries are shitty and ours is better.” Then when Trump or another Pub says the unparaphrased version of that in defense of their case it is labeled racist immediately. I think that, though its unfair, worrying that immigrants will make our country more like the ones they are fleeing is a legitimate issue that people are concerned about and it could be addressed without calling everybody racist.

Trump is a racist though. :P Or is at least comfortable exploiting it for his own benefit. Not just because of the comment but the ranting and raving he’s done to defend himself in the time since. And a lot of other things he’s said...

Should Trump heed his own advice?

American entities that Trump has complained about or railed against (so far):

US courts, the FBI, the Federal Reserve, US Congress, former US presidents, some US judges, some current US laws, some US veterans...


He also openly praised North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-Un, whose regime has had severe human rights violations against US citizens, not to mention its own citizens. Remember NK's treatment of late Otto Warmbier?

A lot more examples where he praised other countries while criticizing the US:

Quote:
Two weeks after taking office, Trump sat down for an interview in which he was reminded that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “a killer.” Trump replied, “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country’s so innocent?

Indeed, he hasn’t exactly been subtle on this point. In December 2015, then-candidate Trump was asked about Putin’s habit of invading countries and killing critics. “He’s running his country, and at least he’s a leader,” Trump replied, “unlike what we have in this country.” Reminded that Putin has been accused of ordering the murder of critics and journalists, Trump added, “Well, I think our country does plenty of killing also.

In a July 2016 interview with the New York Times, the Republican went on to argue that the United States lacks the moral authority to lead, because we’re just not a good enough country to command respect abroad. “When the world looks at how bad the United States is, and then we go and talk about civil liberties, I don’t think we’re a very good messenger,” he said.

Those countries can afford those policies because they don’t spend what we do on military and defending half the world.

Part of that spending is to secure "free trade" for the US and allies. There is a trade-off.

Maybe time to cut down on the military industrial complex?

:thumbsup:

Anyone bending over backwards (like quite a few people in this thread--Christians, no doubt!) to explain what POSOTUS meant by his latest bullshit and why it isn't actually racist is just fooling themselves. There aren't shades of meaning with this idiot, he's a garbage person who's managed to fail upwards his whole life--that's what being born a straight, white, rich, celebrity, asshole in America gets you.

Just as there's no educating a dipshit about how all religions are nonsense garbage, there is no educating anyone who still supports him--they like what they see, simple as that. Anything in the name of dragging this country back to the good ol' days when only straight white christian men mattered.

Seriously, though, the last several years have legit lead me to being a racist myself--I do not have nice thoughts about old white people ;) They are absolutely part ofthe problem and the US would be better off if they all decided to walk into the ocean together.

Oh I wasn’t arguing in favor of them. They can afford them because barely anybody (relatively) lives there. If India could pull it off it’d be another story. We can use them as inspiration though.

The point of my post was that Trump was only using those failed Spanish socialist governments as examples because the target of his attack was also Spanish. If her named Alexandea Ocasovic he wouldn’t have.

Correction: Spanish speaking socialist governments and the target is also Spanish speaking, but not just Spanish. The way you worded it makes it sound like she is from Spain.
Same sentence substituting Spanish for English would also be wrong, as the British wouldn't also appreciate the honor of someone saying AOC is from the UK. They already have enough morons over there.

He didn't say who the tweet was about so it could have been real people in congress from another country not AOC and co. But he is an obvious racist trash bag either way. I mean he was a birther

Oh give me a break. He specified the "progressive democrat congresswomen". He watches fox news 24/7, who are fucking obsessed with Omar/AOC.

Canada, Germany, Japan, and the UK are populated countries and each has some form of universal healthcare system with public insurance. Their systems are more cost-saving than the US partly due to economies of scale. They reduce overhead expenses by cutting down the middlemen and streamlining the link between healthcare providers and patients.

Love this post. Every single issue really boils down to old white dudes who are scared of anyone except them having power over all. And the younger white dudes who know they'll be old white dudes someday and maybe not have the same power and it scares them. And then women and POC who, for some reason, think it's better when old white dudes have all the power.

After looking closer... The left is defending Omar almost entirely based on the color of her skin, and Trump is criticizing her based on her words. So how is this about how racist Trump is?
