You're off on a wild tangent.

Science has zero to do with Sanders' race bait comments.





Couldn't you consider MK ULTRA science? I mean really, if people think the government actually discontinues these projects because they got caught you can't be telling me that people actually think the project and it's desired outcome wasn't just shuffled off to let's say a Corporation?

Sanders isn't stupid, he is using the techniques of division and control that we are seeing become evident in our institutions of higher learning......

I would imagine this out of context "mental gymnastics" you refer to is already in jpeg format being posted on twitter with all the black lives matter movement and other cultural racists saying: "Dam Right! screw the white privileged".

Hows that for context?

I'm sorry but the apologists aren't going to put a band-aid on this one by claiming "his exact words actually meant this".

What he said is as clear as day and it is racial pandering no matter how you try to spin it. No candidate is perfect, but honestly I lost some respect for Sanders when I heard this last night.


Where do you see an apology in my post? Are you just tossing out buzzwords? He said what he said, he's been saying such for decades (shame on you for not knowing that) and I agree with him. I'm not sorry he said those things nor am I sorry that I agree with him.

Looks like you need to throw your support behind Trump and someone else... Bernie's not for you.

What race bait comment are we talking about? Bernie's opposition is anti-science and pro-war crime. They are racists who think illegals are mostly rapists. Is it race baiting to suggest most illegals are rapists?

Republicans are aligned with full-ignorance. Very narrow minded people. Just saying it like it is.

Mark Steyn was on Rush today, and he pointed out that he lives in New Hampshire and regularly has drive across both it and Vermont through dozens of tiny, dead towns that have been burned out by both the horrible economy and the heroine epidemic. Many of those towns are peopled by Bernie's own constituents who are whiter than white bread, and they are living in abject, hopeless poverty as deep as any ghetto.

Doesn't Bernie know there are poor WHITE people, too?
Does he believe POOR white people are too stupid to 'Know What It's Like To Be Poor'?

www.nccivitas.org...

learn some facts. No one said every single illegal coming across the border, but more often than not, we are certainly not getting Central America's best, more often than not, rapists are coming across the border, more often than not, criminals of all kinds are coming across the border. (read the link above)

Mexico's best, more often than not comes legally. Central America's best, more often than not come legally. What is coming across illegally is not the best.

Its a fact. It is a statistical fact. And it was facts Trump based what he said off of.


What kind of fact is "White Americans don't know what it means to be poor" "" HMM? what kind of a fact is that? Show me the 30 year old black man raised with no running water then, if we are so much better off than black people in this country. Because I am a white person who was raised with no running water piped into the house I grew up in. We got it from a spring nearby - in buckets.

So, tell me what kind of fact it is that white americans don't know what it means to be poor, or has he simply redefined ALL poverty to where the only poverty that counts is black people and minorities, because that's what it sounds like to me!

Apparently all the 'whiteys' need to apologize for a war over 150 years ago, and other things we had nothing to do with.

As per Sanders comment.

HIS white guilt.

I have none, because I haven't done NOTHING to anyone else, NOR do I have a pity party for them.

The first step in EQUALITY is treating EVERYONE the same.

Not continually using negative reinforcement ad infinitum with no other goal that getting a VOTE.

Then once elected ignore the hell of of those groups until it comes to another election cycle.

The day TRUE FREEDOM comes to minorities is when they ALL give the DNC the middle finger, and tell them to stop using them.

Did I say someone said "every single illegal"? No. I did not. Trump, the republican front-runner.... has implied that most illegals are rapists. That's him and his voters. He also believes in torture and the murder of innocent families. Not taken out of context- that's his position-- and his voters clearly agree.


It's a tiny shot glass of truth. Suck it up, princess.

*snort*

Bernie himself should know what it's like. He claims to have lived in an apartment with dirt floor for a time and never held down a job with a steady paycheck until he managed to con that town into voting him in as mayor at the age of 40!

Even then, he is so poor at managing what he has managed to make since that he is only worth around $100,000 (and that's with his wife managing his money). Had he even been saving a mere 10% of the salaries he was supposed to have been taking in since getting elected, he should have been worth at least $1,000,000 by now.

But, hey! He's the guy who can adequately tell the entire country how to best manage its economic affairs ...

I pass on Sanders.

$65 grand in credit card DEBT.



The Vermont independent, who's running for the Democratic presidential nomination, had a total of between $25,002 and $65,000 in revolving debt on his Visa cards last year, according to his latest financial disclosure report. The report also shows no stock in his name.

Which is more money than most of his supporters make in a year.

And they actually want that guy to run this country.

In a word.

INSANITY.

I do believe I have been banging the drum about a post I made on the previous page showing his full remarks and using the term gaffe for that particular sentence. He was not pandering as he is a life-long supporter of civil rights who has far more credentials on it than Hillary and every single person in this thread. I can read and understand the English language, or any language that has context come before and after a sentence that Bernie understands that people of all colors are poor. I don't have anything to forgive him for and he is undoubtedly a better person than Hillary.

You suck it up.

Trump said, and I quote:



"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. …They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
link

And some, I assume, Trump said, are good people. He is pointing out statistical problems with illegal aliens, and did not call all illegals bad, just a large percentage of them, which is fact.

For more of those facts, read the link.

This is much different from the delusion that Sanders seems to suffer, in which he states white people don't know what it means to be poor. I guess we can all eat dirt so long as the minorities are happy right?

Well taking into consideration that he is a socialist, I guess been a savvy economist doesn't apply.

The we most remember that he was a mediocre student as per his words because the college curriculums were boring.
