Not surprising.

Aside from a general willingness to ignore facts unless they support the Mario Mushroom President, there's an inherent cruelty in these same supporters or cultists.

www.newscientist.com...



In the years since Donald Trump took ofice as President of the United States, he has often used incendiary language when discussing immigrants, Muslims and various other groups. Hate crimes have been on the rise in the US since 2015, and a recent review by ABC News found Trump has been invoked in at least 36 criminal cases of violent acts, threats or allegations of assault.

But it has been difficult to quantify the extent to which his language has really inspired or triggered such crimes. Now a study has found that people who strongly identify with Trump say they are more willing to commit violence against immigrants.


This is a study based on data and facts so no doubt the usual Cult 45 members will arrive in droves to shout their ignorance because they don't like data and facts.

Trump supporters more willing to commit violence, check.


In one scenario, respondents were told to imagine that a law had been passed outlawing Islamic cultural organisations, and then asked how likely they would be to report members of such organisations to the police, support the use of physical force to find them, and even personally use physical force to track down and detain them.

People whose identities were more fused with Trump were more likely to say they were willing to commit violence in these scenarios.


More willing to persecute immigrants, check.



In similarly designed surveys, Kunst and his team found that those fused with Trump were also more willing to persecute Iranians and immigrants.

This fusion was measured by asking people to rank how strongly they agreed with several statements, including “I am one with Donald Trump”. Read more:


I can't wait for all the rational supporters to flood in and debate the data in a calm and rational fashion.

Haha, just joking, I'm sure the insults and ad-homs will be fast and furious

The reason the left has a hard time getting any traction with this is the usual attempt to conflate "immigration" and "ILLEGAL immigration".

By dropping the "illegal" part and painting anyone as some sort of evil racist, it just pisses off people that can quantify the distinction and make those that chose to conflate the two as the slobbering morons they are.

You shouldn't insult slobbering morons.

Not that they shouldn't be insulted for posting something like this...

But because they won't understand that you are insulting them in the first place.

It's like kicking a puppy...

Wrong, I'd never kick a puppy. Huge difference.

Why can't you just use your main account?

Lol, garbage thread.

Seriously, we know who you are, the exact mannerism and same ridiculous verbage you use within this empty context, you posted a lot and said NOTHING. However, you're a bit bold and added a spicy punch to your tone.

Seriously, tho, are we to take you seriously when you refer to the POTUS as "Mario Mushroom President", like what does that even mean???

...and of course you'll WON'T BE COMING BACK, as per the usual posting tactic you employ, there is no discussion to be had.

With all their different reasons people support Trump and America this is what you are linking it to? Pretty sad if this is your thought. This kind of post you created is a bigger link to people supporting Trump.

It pays well.

And those on the "inside" get to think they will be in the high castle when it all falls.

Almost like using a fool to play the fool is easy(and cheap).

Fair point,

It seems those that wish to save a few bucks use those in the US that are mentally unstable, and those outside the US, for free to disseminate their anti US banter.

It's the modern world, it's all about saving costs.

What a load of bullplop!

I'm sorry but if you are trying to link Trump to an increase in anti-immigrant or anti-muslim sentiments then you're willfully ignoring the last 30yrs of history.

People want better immigration because:
They're sick of seeing migrants homeless crapping in the streets.
They're sick of seeing dollar signs float above their heads when the Democrats talk of 'free healthcare and tution'
They're sick of hearing about murders, robberies and drug deals involving immigrants

People remember 9/11, WTC93, Beruit Barracks, USS Cole and most probably remember their friends stories from Iraq and Afghan... they really do throw stones at woman half buried for crimes which are ridiculous!

Look at Sweden and some parts of London - There are muslim groups actively calling for their own islamic state, sharia law and death to infidels IN THEIR COUNTRY!

Why do you link Trump to people who are sick of this crap?

Because President Trump is the only one with balls to call it as it is - this is why the people like him.

Imagine this, you walk to work... on your way to work you see several men sleeping on makeshift beds and piles of human waste next to them.. and needles... you get on your train and am approached by a muslim man who is talking about death to infidels and Islam is forever... As you exit the train you see south american men protesting for free health care and free tuition while holding iphones and new sneakers..

With all that in mind, on one hand you have democrats who want to give them everything and let them swarm in
On the other hand you have Trump, who says no more - if you arent here legally you're out!

Which would you chose?
