Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Just imagine that you are working for a company called "Extra Mile" and are paid to be a Trump supporter.

You are on a first date and then the question comes: what do you do for work?...

Trump gets so easily hated by the exact sort of people who he wants America get to hate, eventually. Him helping them show their negativity and reactivity earns him voters. I dislike that reversed bs, tbh, but people have to at some point own up to their reactiveness and get on with being pro-active and focus on positive alternatives and suggestions.

So you are justifying a crowd chanting "Send her back" because they were baited into it?



Wowzers.

Nobody believes a large crowd like that start spontaneously such a brand new chant.
There are people in the audience trained to work together to generate these at appropriate times.
Trained and paid by whom?
Have you met many Americans?

Thousands upon thousands, which is precisely why I agree with marton when he writes "Nobody believes a large crowd like that start spontaneously such a brand new chant." The country that gave us cheer leaders, and thatneed an organ to get the crowd going at ice hockey. If you look at the footage again, just watch the woman in blue to the left of Trump. You can tell she's watching someone and copies their hand gestures.

I don't think it really matters whether it was spontaneous or contrived. I guess the people at the rally feel comfortable, and among like-minded people and would never fear being chucked out for any kind of hate-speech. It's a heady mix.

It reminded me of those evangelical churches where the preacher whips them all into a frenzy and they suddenly all go mental; gnashing and flailing around and being cheered on by the rest.

Trump just channels his inner Billy Graham and it's the same effect.

No, I am claiming you are less likely to vote for a racist who tells you to go back where you came from.
Has it maybe occurred to you that the individuals Trump was rebuking with that comment do not speak for all immigrants, do not have the support or sympathy of all immigrants, and that there are immigrants who consider what they said to be offensive, counter productive and outright offensive. Strange as it may seem to you, there are even immigrants who understand the concepts of metaphor and hyperbole.

No, it is a documented fact by the Federal Election Commission US Government agency that Trump hires actors to attend his events.

Seems my attempt at irony passed you by

I will try to keep my future posts much simpler

I want to apprise everyone of an incident in the Strait of Hormuz today, involving #USSBoxer, a U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship. The BOXER took defensive action against an Iranian drone....
Iranians are claiming the US shot down one of their own
Pass the popcorn, this could run for some time ........

It is amazing how the Fake News Media became “crazed” over the chant “send her back” by a packed Arena (a record) crowd in the Great State of North Carolina, but is totally calm & accepting of the most vile and disgusting statements made by the three Radical Left Congresswomen...
Three? Is Granpaw losing the plot again?

So Trump's racist rhetoric and assault on free speech is now a "rebuke"?

Perhaps you could tell us what they actually said that so triggered Spanky, that seems to have got lost?

I thought all the actors were Democrats these days. Good to know there are still a couple supporting Trump though.

So how did she get voted into Congress if her values are incompatible with American values?
By fielding that argument you have forfeited the ability to claim that Trump is un-American.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A lot of the “fine people” chanting don’t really support Israel either. They tolerate Israel and Jews because, well, they’re not Muslim, and they’re often indistinguishable from other white people. If they tolerate them at all.

Hard to believe the same old anti semetic shit still goes on. And on.

So anyway, not supporting Israel is not necessarily a value at odds with America.
