Whatever it takes to get the right man in the white house... Your constant whining about Trump and his supporters being racist is ridiculous. I'm surprised you actually get away with the defamation of character.


Well when America's white supremacist organizations like the American Nazi party and StormFront endorse Trump, that's a clear sign for me that I want nothing to do with the man.

I won't vote for anyone who has the blessing of hate groups like that behind him.

So you are agreeing with the OP that this was a big ol' "Klan Rally"...and all those Trump supporters were Klan?

Exactly. Calling us stupid, uneducated, and racist is just their desperate attempt to make us look stupid if we support Trump in any way, shape, or form.

And regardless of who supports who, I consider Cruz more conservative that Trump (Trump almost defies idealogical classification in some ways IMO), and I really don't see ANY of the candidates as true classic 'liberals' at all.


Well considering Trump isn't a conservative that's a pretty safe thing to say.


I do think Trump also has a degree of support from classic liberals, by the way. That is what I used to politically identify myself with, at least, back before leftism bastardized and co/opted liberalism.


You mean classical libertarianism?


Probably well before you were born, although I'm speculating on your age.


Classical Liberatarianism stopped being considered liberal long before anyone alive today was born.

Did I say what you are accusing me of?

No. Did my post indicate that I viewed a Trump rally as a racist gathering? No.

I'm simply pointing out that when the former head of the KKK endorses Trump, and Stormfront gives out free tickets to his rallies -- he's probably not the candidate I want to vote for. I don't want a man as POTUS that has the blessing of those racists.



Former KKK leader David Duke spoke highly of Trump’s immigration plans in August. Forums on Stormfront, a white supremacist organization, lit up like the phone lines of a radio station giving out free concert tickets after Trump proposed his recent idea.


When people like this go nuts over Trump, it tells me that he's attractive to people I want nothing to do with. I don't want to be associated with a candidate that attracts people like this:



He also serves as chairman of the American Freedom Party, a white nationalist group he co-founded. And he absolutely loves Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump isn’t governed by handlers,” Johnson told me over the phone from his law office. “He shoots from the hip and he speaks forthrightly. He does not care what public opinion is.”

Johnson, who requested that he not be referred to as a neo-Nazi in this article, is listed under the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Extremist Files,” notably for proposing a 1985 constitutional amendment that would have revoked the American citizenship of every non-white inhabitant of the United States.

In Johnson’s words, the United States is facing a threat to “the continued existence of Western civilization,” with immigrants displacing whites throughout the world. The only person who seems equipped to ensure that the white race can thrive at the top once again is a golden-haired real estate magnate by the name of Trump.

When those types of folks get excited about Trump, it tells me I ought to vote for the other guy. The company you keep...

I caught this after I paused the TV to grab a drink... Pretty telling. I couldn't resist snagging a pic of it.

No different than the NBPP endorsing Obama.

I'm glad to hear you disagree with the OP's characterization of all the people in that rally being Klan members.

So, do you believe the OP was being bigoted in characterizing it a big "Klan Rally"?

Did I say I endorse Obama? Did I say I voted for Obama? What does Obama have to do with Trump, considering he can't run for office again?

Thanks, but no thanks.

I don't read people's minds. That is his opinion apparently. Does he have the evidence to back it up? That's up to everyone else to decide.

Are you telling me that a person with a degree in Physical Education or Math or Science can better determine which candidate is the best fit just because they have a degree?

I asked for your opinion as to whether or not you felt the OP's statement was bigoted.
Is it that YOU have no personal opinion you wish to share...or that you haven't yet decided for yourself?

I wasn't telling you anything actually. But what I was implying with that post you responded to (which was also highlighted further down the thread) is that college educated people have better critical thinking skills than non-college educated people. This is because critical thinking is a skill that is stressed very highly in college education and within ALL majors.

This is garbage. Show some hard numbers. I guess you think that people who weld for a living or build homes, who do not have BA's or a BS cannot use critical thinking?

I know quite a few college grads that could not critically think their way out of a phone booth.

Then you dodge when Obama is brought up... But the point stands, if Trump getting the endorsements from former KKK leaders and Stormfront that you point out are racists [obviously] is a problem. Then the support Obama received from the NBPP, from a racially exclusive group is a indication that politics is all about taking the support you get when you get it. Does Obama's accepting that mean he was racist? I'll guarantee you will say no. Has Obama been supporting just Black causes? So why do you think that Trump accepting those endorsements will make him just support the white causes. Politics is all about whoring to every special group that will bring you votes in a large bloc. Trump accepting those endorsements means squat as to what he will do if somehow he gets elected. Perception and reality are not often hand in hand when it comes to politics. Otherwise people would actually trust those in office.

Where did I say that only college educated people can use critical thinking exactly? Don't strawman me.


I know quite a few college grads that could not critically think their way out of a phone booth.


And where did I say that all college grads CAN critically think? Seriously you aren't even trying... Can YOU critically think?

You'll never convince me that those same people who got obama elected twice have critical thinking skills. Try again. And yeah, Apprentice fans that think Trump is a racist and loathe him like liberals do, wouldn't waste their time going to see him. It doesn't take critical thinking skills (at a 'college level') to figure that out. Just a little common sense, which will take you much farther in life.
