I've basically been pushed into a corner where voting for Hillary or Bernie, ESPECIALLY as a White-Male-Capitalist-Business Owner-Middle Class-American...is against my very interests.

I have no reason to vote for anyone on the (D) ticket as it seems they have written ME off especially and support causes or policies that literally want me WIPED out of existence.

Literally.

It doesn't need to be defended.

Reverse the statement and then tell us it doesn't need to be defended:

Black people don't know what it's like to be affluent.

You people would turn purple from all the blood vessels in your face popping.

What Sanders said can't possilby be defended. So they throw everything including the kitchen sink NOT to talk about it.


It doesn't need to be defended. But it apparently needs to be explained to some people since they are losing the sh*t over it.

The fact is the majority of White Americans don't know what it's like to grow up in the ghetto or to grow up in some inner city slum. Do some white Americans know, sure, but not most. Certainly not the majority. What they know is what they've seen on TV or at the Movies. To claim otherwise is a lie.

That doesn't mean all white people are rich. Or that no white person has been raised in a poor black neighborhood either. It just means the majority of them don't know what it's like.

If you take offense to that I really don't know what to tell you.




The only thing I find offensive are those people that support Sanders, and actually buy his propaganda hook line, and sinker.

Right now all of these primary debates are interesting, however, until July, you take them with a grain of salt. They are trying to get the base of voters to agree that they should be the nomination. You pay attention to the highlights, as it is a clue as to the ground work of the platform.

The issue that Sanders is going to find out, that if he is going to talk about poverty, do not focus on one group or section of the population. It will cause the others to wounder if they matter or not in the eyes of the candidate. And based off of the polling numbers, the Democrats need every vote they can get.

You sound like a scared little kitty if you think Bernie or Hillary want to literally wipe you out of existence. Relax... accepting the problem of racism in this country does not mean your doom. Shh kitty. It's okay. It's gonna be okay.

Sometimes though, don't you get sick of having to hold their hand and tell them the entire story? ALL they listen to are soundbites. I have been in this thread and one other today, hit with those one liners from the mainstream media.

I'm tired, and I think if it takes them more than 15 seconds to learn, they simply wont take the time.

Sanders is a lifelong SOCIALIST Justice Warrior who supported Castro, the Sandanistas, wanted JESSE JACKSON for President, listens to BLM and let's them grab his microphone, and tells White people how 'privileged' they are while telling them they don't understand poverty, and wants to make EVERY Illegal Immigrant an overnight citizen.

If you actually did a comedy skit about this I wouldn't know the difference.

I mean, cmon already. This has to be a joke. As a White person. HOW do you vote for that?

How??

Right. Your saying Muslim = terrorist. Because God knows the family of a terrorist is 100% of the time a terrorist so should be drug out of their homes and made an example of. Or were you for giving them a trial first before we kill them?


Give em a fair trial, then hang em. (a line from a movie i saw)

You guys sound like that phone/whisper game.

Yeah, mom and dad had no idea little mohammed was a jihadi terrorist.
Coming home late at night with shrapnel wounds and asking for his allowance in advance to buy more bullets.

See how the hyperbole can get out of hand?

lololol!!! redrum!

Let that argument go. It's off topic and Neo already admitted he believes in the murder of innocent children. Best to put that argument to bed and not associate yourself with it.

Republicans are becoming such Nazi's. Their hatred of socialism and Islam, not unlike Hitler's hatred of communism and Jews. This misquote by Bernie is so MINOR compared to the actual sh*t coming out of the republican front runner. Torture, and murder of innocent families, and illegals are rapists, and silencing the media for saying bad things. Full on modern day Nazi, with their frothing mouths of hate, and warped brains and total ignorance. Seriously the party of full on ignorance. And they know it. They know the world thinks they're dumb, but they love to hate too much to change. They need that venom flowing through them like a drug. Deport the families, kill innocent, amp up torture--- and they applaud like crazy Nazi's-- because that's what they are. They aren't even qualified to criticize anyone. Not a single person. They believe in war crimes. Disqualified for being a total nazi.



Killing innocent families, sounds like what the democrat president is doing right now doesn't it? There are bad illegals that have raped and killed american citizens, that should not happen. If you are an illegal in this country you should be deported, you are a criminal. It's funny how the vatican, Czech Republic (coming soon) and Mexico can have a wall to keep people out, but somebody talks about doing it here and they are a nazi and racist.

I like how you just keep saying Nazis, How are they like the Nazis? have they gone after 1 group? killed 9 million people? it's a joke and you are demeaning what Hitler and the true Nazis did to the people in Germany.

Consistently and honestly BAD for Americans other than Urban poor Blacks, and Illegal Immigrants and their families. Otherwise, good luck!

So yeah, partly true.

What??? Sorry, you're completely wrong about that. I'm not sure why you'd think that either. My guess is you think everyone is some kind of SJW who get's outraged at everything. But you're wrong.

Well believing in the murder of innocent families feels pretty Nazi-ish. Being pro war crime feels pretty Nazi-ish. Being pro-torture feels Nazi-ish. The hatred and blaming of outsiders... yeah, you know, if you don't see it, you might be too close to it.
