Bernie actually said the MOST racist thing so far in this campaign season.

And Trump is "Hitler".

What a joke.


Sanders pointing out the alleged differences between the experiences of two separate groups of people is not racist.

If you think that is racist, you need to man-up, buttercup.

Real racism hurts more than just the feelings of internet armchair political blowhards.

It's a no-culture meme wherein socially impotent nobodies use pictures of tough guys and various tough guy sayings and mannerisms to affect a pose of being "alpha," or "manly."

Most of them are one bad day from running a pickup truck full of guns through a crowded school or theater. In other words, 2% milk.

Poor is a state of mind.




No poor is a state of hungry.


Who is going hungry ?

America is the Fattest Country in the World

Christie,Moore, and Rosie is a testament to that fact.

All these anti-Bernie posts... So lame. You can't really talk to these people. They want torture, murder, and war crimes. That's their chicken soup. They think the only reason a white person has to care about others is guilt, because they have no empathy. Basically horrible values with childish little rants and ridiculous outrage, while they support and applaud racism, torture, and murder. Lame, lame, lame.

No, with Trump you can talk about his actual stance on issues. Not just a slip up of dialogue. But that fact he wants to legalize torture, or kill innocent families. That's not a slip up. That's his view, and it's horrible--- and it's ridiculous and pretty stupid that you can't see the difference.

Oh yeah? I slept in a church after my house burnt down....for 3 months while saving money going to work without a shower, on a BIKE.

I've lived in Inglewood California, Culver City, the worst ghettos in Venice...

You don't know JACK about being poor "butter cup". You couldn't hack it. You Liberals love to cry about "Privilege" because that's all most of you know.

So pathetic and sad. A bunch of CUCK guilters.

Sure, if that's how you want identify yourself. But unlike Bernie, the only use I can find of your racial identification is if I need to describe your appearance to a cop, if I need to determine the color of your parents or maybe the origin of your ancestors. I mean, who cares?

Identity politics has officially ruined reasoned thought in the United States.

Never heard of Vietnam?

Or the current administration has droned MORE people than the last.

Or the INNOCENT families the current regime from modor has killed by arming the opposition to Assad.

Torture has been LEGAL for decades.

The CIA became masters of it during Vietnam., and in the 90s.



The current policy traces its roots to the administration of former President Bill Clinton. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, however, what had been a limited program.snip

Keep spinning that hyperbole.

Dude, please. I never said you supported Trump. You said:

"You mean, EXACTLY what Liberals and the media do to say someone like TRUMP???"

And I'm saying NO. Not exactly. Not even close to the same thing. With Trump you can talk about his actual stance on issues. Not just a slip up of dialogue. But that fact he wants to legalize torture, or kill innocent families. That's not a slip up. That's his view, and it's horrible. Big difference between a gaffe and pro-war crime stance.

Wrong. Torture has NOT been legal for decades. It took a lot of legal gymnastics for the Bush admin to make waterboarding legal. We're talking about thunderous applause at the mention of expanding torture and murdering innocent families. We all know how horrible war is, and innocent lives are lost--- BUT to actually call for the intentional murder of innocents and receive applause. It's pretty evil. Or ignorant. Or both.

Don't down play it.

It enrages me that a man who is a Socialist, running for President, tells me that I never experienced eating Ramen Noodles and BREAD for years in my college days. Or that I was never homeless, living in a shelter with drug addicts and 100 other WHITE people who literally had bed sores and rotting teeth...and I was the only one of TWO people with a job...that I went to everyday after 5 hours of sleep....because people were fighting and having sex in showers at the homeless shelter.

Or what it was like in my younger days to wear the same shirts for a YEAR because I couldn't save enough money to even change my wardrobe.

Or what it was like to have people kick me out of restaurants or private places because I had nowhere to hang out when the homeless shelter closed from 7AM-5PM on my days off.

Or to live in the HOOD, where me being White tagged me as an enemy and I had to fight my way out of hassles almost weekly and carry a blade on me ready to go at any minute. While my upstairs neighbors got free rent from welfare...and I payed full price, and they had a view of the ocean...on taxpayer dime.

Yeah, I've just been 'privileged'. Whites are just privileged. We don't know what poverty is

Dude, just calm down. He never said that. I grew up on welfare, and I'm not getting all upset. He was talking about a racial problem. Just chill.

And that APPEARANCE, is what defines us to other people.

Like I said, nobody chooses the skin they have, but let's not pretend we're all colorblind.

Terms like "White", "Black"....will always exist. No magical thinking and PC culture can stop that.

Yo read the ACLU article.

The US has used BLACK SITES long before old GW.

Not wrong about ANYTHING.

They get around it by using European countries, or countries like Cambodia, and Laos, or ships in international waters.



President Bill Clinton authorized extraordinary rendition to nations known to practice torture, called torture by proxy


en.wikipedia.org...

I digress.

I'm not gonna chill. I'm sick of hearing every single day how my "Whiteness" is a privilege and how I'm just supposed to shut up and be called a "Racist" by default and take the constant barrage,

And people wonder why Trump is doing as well as he is.

Because people like Bernie say stupid garbage like this. I'm sick of it. Enraged by it.

Your anti-repub posts are lamer and less believable.

Lot's of lies, actually.

It's been making me angry for years.

You are 100% correct in that it's the reason Trump resonates with so many people.

I for one have been very fair and non judgmental my entire life, yet I get accused of racism every time I speak about how much I don't like most Liberal social policies. They do more harm than good, and like it or lump it, they've created a nanny state, and a welfare state from what used to be a "pull up your bootstraps and get to it" culture in the US.

If my mother HAD gotten assistance when I was little I shudder to think that my life's lessons, learned from growing up poor and that I hold so dear, would be not nearly as plentiful, or powerful.

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING makes you want to get out of a bad situation more than hunger and a desire to better yourself. Having at least one parent that cares enough about YOU to teach you right from wrong is a good thing too.
