This wouldn't be the same Daily Stormer by any chance would it, that welcomed and applauded the election of Obama because they were so sure his policies would start a civil war?
Maybe you prefer this quote
Quote:
White nationalist Richard Spencer complained to CNN that Trump wasn't going far enough, saying he gave the movement nothing "outside racist tweets" that seem like they came from "a drunk uncle."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

However you choose to characterize your own statement, it is not what Trump tweeted. Moreover, it is not my opinion that 'go back where you came from is a famous racist phrase'. Oregonians and Coloradans have been saying that to Californians for decades.

In any case, what sort of racist invites you to "Then come back and show us how it is done"?

Is it your opinion that 'go back where you came from' is not a famous racist phrase? is this news to you that racists use this phrase to attack people? It's no more an opinion than its an opinion that the sun will rise tomorrow.

Anyway, lets indulge your fantasy for a moment, on the topic of opinion, noted Neo nazi Andrew Anglin posted on his Daily Stormer website in response to the tweets 'This is the sort of white nationalism we elected him for', maybe you don't think the tweets were racist but it is the opinion of racists that they were racist.

Marton - From where I sit, it appears you are confused most of the time. But I am sure you will find a source, somewhere, that proves beyond any doubt that what I say is false...

And Corbyn's Palestinian friends have been saying that to the Israelis. the moderately inclined friends that is. The others are saying, kill them.

But all that goes under legitimate criticism of Israeli policy, apparently, and thus has nothing to do with racism or anti-semitism.

He was referring to my quote directly from Scott Adams which proved beyond any doubt exactly that.

that is a 18th/19th century trope regarding freed men, not even our normal conception of immigrants. your opinion is not very well founded. You are actually ignoring the historic charge of certain terms/tropes/memes. (i.e low IQ individual)

The same sort that starts a racist sentence with "I'm not being racist but..."

He says something shitty then sugars it up with some back-handed fluff. Classy.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Please see this link to the US Equal Opportunities Commission:

https://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/publicatio...ants-facts.cfm

Specifically this subsection:

Harassment Based on National Origin
Ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical conduct because of nationality are illegal if they are severe or pervasive and create an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, interfere with work performance, or negatively affect job opportunities. Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's foreign accent or comments like, "Go back to where you came from, " whether made by supervisors or by co-workers.

Emphasis is my own.

So now we've officially cleared this up and demonstrated beyond question that what The Donald said was racist (if you want an out FD, let's say he isn't a proven racist, he just happened to "one time" say something racist by mistake) what's the next topic of conversation?

Trump really seems like a pretty advanced troll. He really knows how to snare them-on both sides!

Don getting handsy, hosting a party at his resort with his favourite nonce.

He barely knows the guy though.

In the example "Oregonians and Coloradans have been saying that to Californians for decades" you are correct, that is not racist. That is the form of hate speech known as xenophobia.

Difference is the "squad" are all of colour.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

House holds William Barr, Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt of Congress
It's only the second time in U.S. history that Congress held a sitting Cabinet official in contempt of Congress



Sooner or later everybody around Trump is either fired and insulted or sinks into the swamp!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The Trump apologist department will be going into overdrive this week.

Maybe he's forgetting to take his meds..?

https://metro.co.uk/2019/07/18/donal...ther-10407972/

Quote:
Responding to a question from Fox News he said: ‘There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she [Ilhan Omar] was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. I hear she was married to her brother. ‘You’re asking me a question about it. I don’t know, but I’m sure that somebody will be looking at that.’
There is no filter between his brain and his fat gob, is there?

Meanwhile "lock her up" becomes "send her back" what can that possibly mean?? did the crowd misinterpret his innocent tweets as racist??

That’s hilarious. If you ask an outrageous question don’t be surprised if it gets answered.

Fox News planting the seed now millions of Trump supporters wondering if Omar married her brother.

Some would argue that a grown-up would "treat the question with the contempt it deserves" but hey this is Politics 2019 where even snowflake Presidents are triggered.

Well, it's long been known that the Fox News tail is wagging the Trump-dog.
