I’m tripping on the irony of the fact that your inaccurate paraphrase has 100% more race mentions then the original text....

After years of the left invoking "Whitey bad", I don't think 'racist' carries the same weight it used to with rational thinking people. The professional outrage mob has made people numb to it.

Lets accept that at face value(which i do not), does not mean racism does not exist

Dont worry guys, I’ve created an anthology of all the posts and comments in this thread that directly reference skin color... now we can really see who the racists are. 

 

Obviously trumps tweet is quoted because it directly speaks of skin color and other race based qualifiers... wait... *****. I don’t know what happened....

This is some master level logic here...Vincini would be proud. I am sure you are just getting started!

One leads to the other. Communism is the goal, they're just too dishonest to admit it.

  I don''t think that Gavin is saying racism does not exist but the issue is overplayed.

Every time he tweets like this, the first question I ask is "What is he distracting attention from?"

 

My guess is he is trying to deflect coverage away from the upcoming Mueller testimony and Epstein hearing. 

 

#fakenews already knows Mueller's testimony will be a big nothingburger so they would have otherwise spent this week spinning up their false narratives that although Mueller's testimony won't implicate Trump, Trump is still guilty of #orangemanbad stuff

 

Meanwhile #fakenews has been in damage control mode over the Epstein case

 

So now the #fakenews is focused on Trump v Pelosi vs AoC & Crew.  That will all come to a sudden halt once Mueller raises his right hand.  Rather than expecting an outcome based on a weeks worth of #RussiaRussiaRussia #orangemanbad #resist, people will see Mueller's testimony as a non-event.

 

Followed a day or so later by the details of Epstein's hearing and the possible naming of names.  Maybe even some of everyone's "faves"...

Well, it certainly wasn’t racism.  It was completely consistent with the President’s “America First, American Exceptionalism” rhetoric that he built his campaign on.  No one is attacked or disparaged because of their race, or even their nation of origin.

 

The only issue I take with it, is that it was completely politically inept; as it disrupted a public cannibal dinner at DNC headquarters, and will be spun as racist by people who see racism everywhere or require the President and their political enemies to be racist.

Well, I've always considered myself more of a Fezzik, but I'll take it.

 

Here's some logic for you:

 

Criticizing someone's ideas and intellect is not a form of racism- no matter what color they are. 

 

Here's another: 

 

Making statements about people's heritage is not inherently racist. 

 

Here's another: 

 

Telling people to go back to their place of origin because their ideas are bad and because they hate the United States is not racist. 

 

Here's another: 

 

Racism is negative treatment of people based solely on their skin color and their national or racial makeup. 

 

Here's another: 

 

If I am a black man and call a white man/woman an idiot because he's intellectually lacking, I am not a racist. If I am a white man and call a "Brown" man/woman dumb because they are intellectually lacking, I am not a racist. 

 

Here's another: 

 

If person A calls person B out for being intellectually lacking, and person C see's this and assumes that person a is doing so on the basis of race, with no actual reason to assume that, the person in the situation with the issue dealing with race is person C.

:beer: I was responding to Graham's comments, not Trump's tweet.

1st off, like 50-75% of 45's tweets, this one was cringeworthy.

 

And, it was fairly predictable that it would be interpreted as being racist.  But, what he actually said (as opposed to what people interpreted what he said) doesn't seem to be racist.   (Although it would be interesting to know how many Congresswomen have migrated to the US; only know of 1 ottomh for certain (Omar).)

 

He had to have known that the tweet would be interpreted as being racist.  Really not sure what he was going for by sending it out.  Because it seems to be more of a shoot himself in the foot moment than his usual stuff.

 

Do expect that his base (and many others as well) will like the 'rather than be here complaining about how horrible the US is, why not go to the place you come across as expressing more loyalty towards and make that a better place and THEN work on 'fixing' here' sentiment but, like so much else he tweets, it was more divisive than necessary and seems to have been counterproductive.

It is kinda funny if you read this thread going back a few pages. There seems to be three camps:

1) "Rayyyyyycccccist" because #OrangeManBad
2) Trump being Trump
3) Higher plan 

And reading those media articles linked here and elsewhere, the media also are divided into the same three camps.  (I am in camp 3 as I think he stirred the pot for a reason.)

No real point to this post, just an observation

I really don’t care enough to be in any of the groups, I just get pissed at group 1’s insisting that whatever they deem racist is racist. 

 

The link DR posted a few pages back detailing how it could be an attempt to draw the left back together and push the implosion down the road a couple months makes good sense, but I usually don’t give Trump that much credit.

Few people give him much credit, and yet here he sits, political "neophyte" who took on the GOP establishment, the Clinton Machine, and the MSM to become President of the United States.

Yup! And he’s definitely good at what he does... sometimes it seems like he takes his trolling stchick a bit far in light of the upcoming election, but I enjoy the show.

I agree that he stirred the pot for a reason, but I am not sure that the end result will give what he wanted.
