I'm still trying to figure out the "racist" part of these tweets.
 

 

 

Trump certainly didn't stick the landing here. The "go back to where you came from" comment was never gonna be interpreted as anything other than extreme racism by those with TDS. Classic Trump Twitter diarrhea. It's basically an outrage sequel to the shithole country comment. These women believe that socialist shithole countries are Utopia's, and he wants them to put their money where their mouth is and go fix them. They won't because they are shitholes and would never want to lose all the freedoms and luxuries they have here.

 

He criticized people he thinks are stupid and since the left only reduces people to their skin color, he's a racist. Remember, just last week Pelosi was a racist for disagreeing with them until the Congressional Black Caucus smacked them down.

That just means that the CBC is also racist.

This faction is going to drain off at least half of the energy and attention of the 2020 campaign for the Dem Party

This is actually the most offensive post here regarding this topic. 

 

He is just projecting his own racism. If he can twist things to make it look racist, then he does not feel so bad about being racist himself.

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.

Trying to understand your post..are you saying "brown people go back to whence you came from"is good political strategy?

at some point ya call a cigar a cigar...he has tweeted racist things for three years..this one possibly the most blatant " brown people are not part of my America"..go back from where you came"!

 

You always claim people with TDS cant see the forest for the trees, and it sure seems that goes both ways. If you cannot see this as a racist, baiting tweet, and call him out for it, i am lost.

 

This is just pure red meat to his base, and if posting racist tweets is okay as a political strategy i think we have truly entered the 4th circle..and this guy is driving us there

so you really think a POTUS telling brown people who oppose his views to " go back where you came from" is what MAGA stands for?

Says DR. 

 

“What’s a little blatant anti-brown people talk from the president?”

 

Personally, I can’t stand AOC and her re-elect Trump gang. But it’s not because I’m racist. Trump on the other hand decided race was the way to go. He didn’t misspeak. He wasn’t subtle. Just went for it. I’ve not called his statements racist or dog whistling before, but this one leaves no room for discussion. 

 

billsChan won’t care. He’s the (meaning now changing?) white knight. See last 3 pages.

When he does something inarguably offensive, “Hillary” is the response. billsChan has a narrative to follow. 

 

This tweet won’t matter to the base. He’s gone after POWs for being prisoners and gold star families. A shot at brown folks won’t move the needle.

i don't know, what country does he want dark skinned American citizens to go back to? He's such an idiot. 

 

So so glad he stepped in and United the Democrats again though! Thanks! 

 

 

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....

His full quote was likely "I don't want to say that on the record, Acosta, because you're a biased left-wing agitator posing as a journalist, enabled by your biased left-wing network, and you'll find a way to twist my words against me and against the President."

The future of the Democratic Party is in doubt and that is no joke.  

 

In reality, this isn't any different than where the GOP was in 2009ish. The Democrats will eventually bounce back. The pendulum of American politics will swing.

Well, his racism is much worse when he is simply scapegoating immigrants as criminals rapists and drug dealers, but hey, play word games if you want. 

 

Did you see him say most of the asylum seekers are just criminals?

  I don't see it that way.  Although the GOP has lost something in terms of unifying issues it still has the 2nd Amendment among other things to lineup behind.  The Democrats used to have Big Labor to rally behind for most people.  Today there are Democrats that care about civil rights but little else and others that care about abortion and little else.  Heck, used to be small national defense budget was a big deal for a sizable number of Democrats but anymore a fair number receive their paycheck from a company that has national defense ties.

How do you know they aren’t?

A) Trump is saying it, so it is more than likely a lie 

 

B) There is no proof, so why would I even think it's true just because your orange cult leader says it 

 

C) Do you actually believe Trump on this? <--Don't worry, I know you can't answer that.

They are as they are abusing the asylum system by making fake asylum claims, gaining access to the country, not showing up for their court hearings and staying in the country illegally.  Asylum is not about someone simply wanting to pursue a better life somewhere else.  It's also not about choosing your preferred destination in which to request asylum.  Those preferences fail to meet the asylum standard.

How are they false claims? Heck, say what you will about the law, but really 1/2 of the globe could qualify for asylum if they could get here. Migrants, war refugees, political oppression are all reasons they could legally seek asylum.

I just don't know how yall total dismiss everything he says on twitter as "Trump being Trump"..anYall kill @Tiberius for what he says on social media...whats the difference?

 

 

Probably the same way the left spent eight years saying "Oh, that's just Joe being Joe with his rhetorical flourish!"

 

Party dogs are loyal to the pack to a fault. In the end, most American's don't give a crap because beyond the fact that people are working again, they're secretly cheering on the way he shoves his middle finger at anyone who jumps him. I've often wished people like Romney or McCain or Ryan would have punch back like Trump does when people made ridiculous accusations about them.

 

I'd argue, maybe not successfully, that Romney would have kicked Obama's ass if he acted more like Trump in his campaign, giving people schitt for the stupidity they lobbed at him about giving a woman cancer or cutting a college kids hair in a ritual or even driving with a dog on his roof.

 

But no. He was pre-DeLorean Marty McFly, and we got four more years of a president so bad that Carter sends him a fruit basket every election day.

You’re literally accusing me of bias while you sit and say “it’s not true cause trump said it.” Do you know how ######ed that makes you look?

 

I don’t believe anyone at their word. Show me evidence either way and I’ll look at it. It’s called being intellectually honest <— don’t worry, I know you don’t know what that is.

I've been reading through the various replies and this is among the most salient points I've read. 

 

I was a reluctant Trump supporter,  found his approach by Tweet unsettling when he was first elected (I was horrified when he tweeted that Obama wiretapped him, thinking a president should not say that sort of this without proof), but history has shown that on many of those "WTF!" moments he was on point and often ahead of the curve. 

 

On this most recent firestorm, it is what it is. He chose to send a tweet that was sloppy in regards to who is from where and which country, and I can understand his detractors seeing evidence of hatred or racism in his remarks. 

 

I do the same thing, actually, and see remarks like Nancy Pelosi's "MAGA really means make America white again"  as incredibly divisive race-1baiting language that reflects poorly on her and her motives.  I think that language is dangerous, destructive and intended to rile her base, which includes the same type of hateful thugs that will lie/cheat/steal/destroy and kill to further their cause as you see on the right. The thing about Pelosi v Trump is while Trump seems impetuous and less than artful (by design or not), I think Pelosi, Biden, Harris, Clinton, Schumer etc think through what they are going to say, focus group it for maximum effect and send out exactly what they think will help them the most politically.

 

In fact, the common theme from our political leaders is to demonize the other party at all costs. 

 

So given the flesh and blood of us all, you wanted feedback.  I'm happy to give mine, but what are your thoughts on the other side? Do you have the same questions on the Pelosi for Prez board at another site?  Or the "Biden for Prez All hands on deck" site? Or, have you accepted the narrative that trump is the first flesh and blood individual who hates everyone and everything ever created in the history of the world?

 

I'm looking at the totality of 45s Presidency thus far and see little in the way of institutionalized racist policies and in fact, see quite a bit of positive data for all who want to contribute and work for their own slice of the American dream.  

 

Unlike some of the others posters here who's views I respect (you're in that group), I wouldn't say whether Pelosi is a racist or not. How would I know what's in her heart, who she pals around with and how she treats everyday Americans.  Some dems seem to think she is, and given their experiences maybe she fits the mold. I do think that while a person guilty of violence against someone for who they are is vile, I am quite certain I have no respect for the second spitter off in the shadows goading them on with rhetoric like "That guy hates you people.". While guy #1 is often ruled by emotion/rage/hate, person  #2 is calculating and reflects a darkness that's hard for me to understand.  

 

 

 

FIFY.
