I think it also has to do with stuff like Trump Tweeting or reTweeting some of the stuff he does. Like the thing from that racist blogger that said Blacks killed by whites - 2%, White's killed by Blacks - 81%, Blacks killed by Blacks - 91%. Which are all wrong stats.

So not only did he not do a check before posting false information but makes you wonder why he would do it in the first place. The reason is because when he read it and since he also believed it to be true he retweeted it. Meaning that's how he thinks too. He doesn't bother to know or look up what is true, he just reads it on the net and since it fits his bias he runs with it. But that's a pretty skewed bias to have if you're going to be president.

Thank you!
That is the best consolidated overview and analysis of what is going on that I have seen so far!

It's a great analysis of everything the opposition has thrown at him.

Thanks for that!

How is that racist?


If that's 'racist' then gun control is racist.

Switch the words from Mexican to gun owners, and 'liberal's' would be ALL for it.

They majority of people I know are hispanic. Some illegal some not. And I can tell you from first hand experience theyhave got to be the nicest most humble people I know. Are any of them rapist or murders though? Of course not, not that I know of. Also, most of them are working 8-12 your jobs making less than 18/hr ,And I have never heard them complain. But, I also know a couple who are business owners that are making a lot more money than most people, and are far more educated and humble than any trump supporter I've ever met.

Sure, there is bad mexican people too. The occasional drug dealer they catch every now and then. But no talks about all the mass shootings in the United States. The majority white people right? What about the pedophiles? The majority white right? Kidnappings? White. Drug overdoses? White people.


Did anyone stop to realize that maybe just maybe the "bad dangerous people" IS trump and his followers?

You know what gets me?

I love how people say Donald Trump is a Nazi, when Bernie Sanders is a Socialist...

How ironic.

Anyway, Trump is not a racist - people just need to stop being so soft.

I can't wait until the election is over. Trump 2016. Lets do this. lol


First of all, are you saying all forms of socialism equates to Nazism? You and everyone who starred your post is full of ignorance, typical trait of a Trump supporter.

Second, are you aware Bernie is Jewish and lost family to Hitlers concentration camps?

Trump is not your overt racist. But many people believe he uses classic dog whistle statements and tactics.

Like when he retweeted claims on twitter that blacks commit more crimes against whites than whites commit against blacks out of the blue. This is a one of overt racist’s tactics.

Also he clearly stalled when asked to denounce David Duke and the Klan and then obviously lied and claimed he didn’t hear the question.

As for the Mexican rapists rap…well he over generalized in that statement and didn’t precisely point out that most illegal immigrants aren’t criminals….This was a dog whistle moment.

Another thing Trump NEVER gets on any white countries.

It’s always, China, Mexico, Japan, and Vietnam.

Not even the classic denunciation of Russia that American politicians from the GOP always do.

Trump only slams third world non white countries

The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. … When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.


How is that racist? We have city after city, report after report, that illegal immigrants are committing an inordinate number of crimes, including rape, murder, drug trafficking, and gang violence. Yes, we assume there are some good people among the illegal immigrants, but coming in illegally is their first crime.

This is Trump's statement that is being used to claim he is racist. Un-freakin'-believable!


Not racist but not said the right way. "Some are nice people?" You mean like millions of hard working people trying to find a better life with families and that really are working?" LOL He should have said "Some are criminals but most are hard working good people" That's the truth and you'd have to be an idiot not to realize that or just trying to stir things up. Either way, we don't need someone that stupid or that chaotic/divisive in the white house. That's the problem. Either Trump is stupid or he's trying to divide us. Both are big problems.

I agree, that was a terrible way to address a real issue. Illegal immigration is a problem due to a variety of societal issues it causes, but most of those immigrants are decent hard working folks.

Bernie said white people dont know what its like to be poor. This thing is done as regular course by both parties. And anyone who says differnt is being disingenuous and santimonious.

Trump is good at provocative rhetoric. Period.

The illegal alien problem is serious. Why are some people following the rules and entering the country legally while others are not following the rules? What is their problem?

The dumb media are always changing the words, too. Now they want to say illegal aliens are migrants as if they were a herd of wild animals migrating because that is their natural instinct. Is that really what is happening?

One of the richest men in the world lives in Mexico. Is he running to America? How can he be successful while the wild animals are on the run? The whole thing is pathetic.

Almost nobody is running away from America. Oh sure you see the occasional headline story of people leaving America in droves, but really it is just a few thousand people a year. And they do it legally. The fact is that a country has borders and language and culture and oh no wait a minute I'll stop there.

When you disagree with people the most shut down argument is saying you side with a racist. Trump isn't a racist and I don't even wanna vote for him. Just a dumb dialogue for people simple minded and ignorant.

"OMG someone disagrees with me and what i believe in! they MUST be morally corrupt!"

an being Muslim isn't a fing race

They are desperate to get rid of him and will resort to all the dirty tricks they can think of. I'm convinced some of those race fights at televised rallies are actors.

Like I was saying earlier.

It's not just the comment on Mexicans.

It was also this that he tweeted out.


-------------------------------- Trump Number-----------Actual FBI Number
Blacks killed by whites-------------2%----------------------------8% (Not Too bad)
Blacks killed by blacks--------------97%--------------------------90% (A little off)
Whites killed by whites-------------16%---------------------------82% (Way Off)
Whites killed by blacks--------------81%--------------------------15% (Way Off Again)

Now, what's important is not only are those last two Way off from being correct, but it's also the implication of those two being off by so much. No surprise that it was actually a White Power Dude who first made the false claim which Trump then retweeted. But for him to even retweet something like that must mean that when he read it that also sounded correct to him which shows his bias. He could have fact checked it and realized it wasn't right. But since it fit with what he also thinks is true he didn't bother and sent it out.

That's not cool for a Presidential Candidate to push false data like that that wrongly implicates an entire race as killing another race. That is what causes racism, even based on false data, to get violent.

Trump is a dog whistler. Do I think he's a full blown racist? Not really. I think he's pandering.

A good % of his supporters are racist pigs though.

Nuclear

Mexico's Peaceful Weapon


You Americans are very lucky you intercepted Germany's message to Mexico. Otherwise they'd already have California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and small parts of Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico.

Atleast thanks to the Mexicans who fought with your grandparents.

WorldWar2

Trump is like the elites. Separation an illusion.
