    I’m so tired of these politically correct wussies screaming racism at every turn. Is this the campaign he is promising? Do the democrats have any policy ideas at all to improve the lives and safety of Americans ? Of course not.

  2. @ Proud Republican said at 2:15 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Right on! Present day racism is a myth perpetuated by the fake news and the Dem elites.

  3. Jay said at 2:34 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Only republicans could make a statement of wanting to end discrimination and racism a bad thing. The opposite would be to continue or increase racism, would you be happier with that?

  4. Proud Republican said at 3:57 pm on August 2nd, 2018:


    I’m all for ending discrimination – let’s start with affirmative action programs.

    As for your comment unrelated to the discussion – the point was, like most Democrats these days, this weak candidate has nothing to offer in terms of policy so he pulls the old liberal standby out of his butt – scream racism. Nobody buys that crap anymore. Democrats have officially taken any impact out of that word because they scream it 24/7. To the policy-less Democrats you scream racist if you: want voter I.D., to protect the border, enforce immigration laws, set standards in hiring and education, call out the NFL for the incredibly stupid and disrespectful practice of kneeling for the anthem and well, I think you get the idea. Democrat politicians are actually the biggest racists for treating the black voter with such disdain and wanting to keep them dependent on government for their survival. Remember what LBJ said after passing the Great Society legislation…..That sums it up to the present day.

  5. Jay said at 5:05 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Affirmative action is not discrimination.

    We have a blatantly racist president and a Republican Congress that refuses to do anything about it, so yes, speaking about ending racism and discrimination is relevant and lots of people (like me) do “buy that crap”.

  6. How said at 5:07 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    was his comment unrelated to the discussion? The statement is right in the second paragraph.

  7. Proud Republican said at 5:53 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    @Jay – you are worse off than I first thought. Affirmative action is the very definition of discrimination so if you defend that all you are saying is that you’re not against discrimination, you’re just okay with discriminating against certain groups. As for your calling the president a racist, again that is the other week attack that liberal Democrats always mount when they want to attack him for doing the very sensible thing of protecting the border and knowing who comes into our country. For God’s sake the guy has gotten awards from the NAACP and has given tremendous opportunity to all minorities which resulted in the lowest unemployment rates for blacks and Hispanics in history. So the far-left can continue to call names, while the rest of the country prospers and progresses under a president who finally does what he says he’s going to do

  8. Jay said at 6:51 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Hiring discrimination is based on prejudice that has existed for a very very long time. Affirmative action is what we do to try to counteract that prejudice with inclusionary practices. Very different things.

    As far as trump being racist, it’s right there out in the open. He doesn’t even try to hide it. He said immigration was “changing the culture of Europe” and that it was a very bad thing. That’s about as blatantly racist as you can get.

  9. Anti-Sheep said at 7:28 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Poor low-information Jay. Cite one example of the President’s “racism”.

  10. jerry said at 8:08 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Jay, you sound like every other clueless liberal I’ve ever heard. You do understand that most middle-class hard-working people are tired of paying the bulk of taxes, (especially school taxes), and watching that money go disproportionately into the so called “Abbott districts schools”. Sadly the increased funding have absolutely no positive results. We still see the low graduation rate, and even lower college admittance The mythical Liberal/Democrat war on poverty has been going on for over 50 years, and minorities are still as poor as ever. Time to wake up and realize that the sad old liberal, rainbows, and unicorn ideology Just doesn’t work. , there are more African Americans working today because of racist Trump’s economic policies than ever before.

  11. Proud Republican said at 9:08 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    This is getting exhausting. You don’t correct pass in justices bye creating new ones. Discrimination based on race is wrong in any setting. That’s number one. Number two – the example you cited of the president’s supposed racism makes no mention of race whatsoever. That’s desperate liberal Democrat wishful thinking reading race into everything . And he is correct. 100% correct. Immigration IS changing the face of European culture. That is a fact it’s not an opinion it is a fact. It’s the reason that cops don’t go into many neighborhoods in England, France, Italy, Belgium and so on. Many of the Immigrant groups who are moving into Europe have no interest in becoming citizens with a shared culture. They refuse to assimilate and we are seeing the results of that over and over again. Again it’s a fact not an opinion

    Hey Jay

    You may want to quit now you are getting slaughtered

  13. Joshua Leinsdorf said at 11:32 pm on August 2nd, 2018:

    Here’s an example of Trump’s racism. He showcased the parents of two people whose children were killed by illegal immigrants in a speech in Duluth, Minnesota, but never acknowledged or said anything about the four black college students who were murdered in a Nashville Waffle House in the same week. An unarmed black patron wrestled the gunman to the ground. His heroics went unrecognized by our Second Amendment obsessed racist President Trump. The gunman in Nashville was white.

  14. Proud Republican said at 8:24 am on August 3rd, 2018:

    Good Lord – that’s your example??? That he didn’t mention a totally unrelated instance? He was talking about murders by illegal aliens a totally different topic. Why would you bring in something totally unrelated to the point he was making? How silly you are! If I recall correctly the victims that Ttump spoke of were black kids killed by MS-13 gang members. You liberals have to do way better than that to try and make any, repeat Annie case for racism. And that’s a part of your problem screaming racism over everything whether it is racism or not. So with this lame example you provided you made even less of a case rather than made your point. You also may want to check the FBI statistics on interracial crime which is overwhelmingly black-on-white. There’s your racism pal. You may want to follow Jay and just keep quiet

  15. Jay said at 8:59 am on August 3rd, 2018:

    I didn’t realize how murky of a Republican swamp I was swimming into on this website. My mistake. The echo chamber is loud in here. So sorry. I’ll just respond to the last couple comments and be on my way to find some moderates who are actually willing to listen and read what people say/write and think about what the impact to human beings less fortunate than them might be of the current administrations atrocities.

    In terms of the quote I gave not mentioning race…GIVE ME A BREAK. If you don’t want to recognize this jackass referencing “European culture” as being an absolute reference to race than you are simply refusing to actually think about what is being said. It isn’t even a dog whistle, it is blatant white supremacy speak. I mean it is as basic a staple of white nationalist commentary as you can get.

    Affirmative action does not create new injustices. As I said. It is about INCLUSION.

  16. Somebody please call said at 9:06 am on August 3rd, 2018:

    The Wahhhhhmbulance for Jay.

    And Joshua? That’s the lamest example of racism. Cut you losses buddy.

  17. Proud Republican said at 9:53 am on August 3rd, 2018:

    The first rule to getting out of a hole is to stop digging. You’re on your way to hitting water. You have absolutely nothing to back up your unfounded rhetoric and that is why you are struggling here. To liberals pointing out a fact is responded to not with another fact but with name-calling. Saying that European culture is being changed, which it is, is in your mind racist. There are girls being beat up in European parks for wearing tank tops. I would say that’s a cultural change. As for affirmative action, you should read Shelby Steele or Thomas Sowell and get the real facts behind affirmative action. It is state-sanctioned racism pitting one group or groups against another. Martin Luther King wanted us to be a color-blind society. Liberals want to make everything about race. You may want to look at the Senate candidate John James in Michigan. Makes mincemeat of all liberal ideas starting with affirmative action

  18. Excellent! said at 10:56 am on August 3rd, 2018:

    Very true and well- said. The Dems have taken their usual race- baiting and class warfare to a whole new( low) level. Completely u hinged and hateful to the pint of madness, now. Lifetime Dems,who keep voting for that party because their union dad like FDR, need to listen to what their new-wave socialists really want to do to us. Independents on the fence, who get ruffled at the President ‘s “ demeanor,” need to wake up,and realize they need to suck it up and get on-board, if we are to remain any kind of sovereign nation, with any safety or quality of life!

  19. Come on said at 5:52 pm on August 3rd, 2018:

    we can make it to 20.
