They don't like immigrants. Trump doesn't like immigrants. They did something they have a history of doing, but this time they said Trump's name after they did it. Obviously the solution is to silence Trump because I don't like his message.

The solution is to silence Trump? That's some pretty overtly loaded and vague phrasing. How about disagree with? Openly oppose? Denounce? Ridicule? Call him out? Reject? Eschew? I can think of maybe a dozen other terms and phrases for what I might recommend and strangely none of them are "silence." I'm not for silencing anyone.
Actually, we got the point, but your point is not VALID.
America is not controlling immigration, even worse America has put in place preferential policies that allow those who come in from other countries illegally to take a shrinking supply of jobs from those that are already here - namely citizens. Further, the government is bringing in MORE legally to take even MORE jobs from citizens.Too many people see it, and are suffering for it, and until mow they have been silenced because 'oh its cruel to the oppressed peoples'.....now it is our citizens being oppressed.
So we can use the actions of two people to denounce a third party who never told them they should do what they did?
So I suppose by that logic, we can denounce all of Islam because of radical Islamists. We can denounce all of Christianity because it's against abortion. But at the same time we can denounce all of the pro-life movement, because a few of them have shot up abortion clinics.
The list goes on and on.

I think you perhaps don't understand economics. Given your illogical hypothesis, the answer to unemployment would be to have less children. Except that's not how economies work at all. People don't just occupy jobs, they create jobs by being consumers of goods and services. Furthermore, illegal immigration stalled out at the beginning of the recession which makes no sense if employers are increasingly trying to replace American labor en masse with lower paid labor from illegal immigrants. The simply fact of the matter is that illegal immigration numbers track pretty well with employment statistics and immigrants move in to fill a vacuum at the bottom percentile of employment when better paying jobs are being created and the least paying jobs are being vacated.

I get the feeling if those two brothers were black, the homeless man was a vet, and they blamed it on Sharpton...
This thread would have a billion stars and flags full of people dehumanising those responsible saying they're "savage beasts" & "monkeys"...
That's not hyperbole it's an actual quote from the other thread.
But unsurprisingly, the opprobrious have left us to listen to the crickets in this case.
I don't blame Trump either...
But I know people ignoring this thread would jump into this discussion at light speed of it was a scenario like I proposed above.
I didn't attempt to marry your cartoons to my post, because I see them as just another attempt to make your point, i.e. trying to continue old tired arguments of the Left to tarnish anyone arguing against their progressive attempts to destroy this country and make it into some sad version of a European socialist hellhole.
I dispute your statistics, because the statistics are flawed.
First, the current unemployment numbers represent a manipulation of statistics to garner favor for Obama's policies. The number of 'citizens' (note the distinction) that are unemployed is around 10%, for minorities even higher.
Now, if you look at the numbers of jobs created since 2005, and marry those numbers to the number of immigrants (legal AND illegal) that have taken jobs in the U.S. since 2005, it marries VERY WELL, showing that ALL NET GAINS in employment made in this country have went to non-citizens, while the citizens continue to suffer.
I disagree with you assertion that the flood of illegals stopped with the recession, no it didn't. Further, Obama is bringing in as many 'refugees' as he can from the Middle East to further change the demographics of this country, and doubling down on the H1-B visas as well, to continue to suck up every job that we can possibly create here.
Until now, the U.S. had accepted only 300 of the more than 3.2 million refugees created by the Syrian civil war in which ISIS, El Nusra and other Sunni Muslim jihadist rebels are locked in a protracted battle with the Shiite regime of Bashar al-Assad.
Now, make your own thread, and I'll post on it, as this thread was originally about two psychos beating a homeless man, not Trump's campaign nor Obama's failures.
