State's delegation rejects condemning Trump for remarks

I’ve been in Europe the last week (Berlin,Prague, and now Budapest). Many are horrified with what is going on in America. They see Trump as the next Hitler. The racists blame everything which is wrong with their lives on minorities. Now, we are torturing them at the borders and trying to expel as many as we can. Does it never occur to some of you right wingers that some of those kids who are being abused now could grow up to be terrorists or that Latin Americans could rise up against the US? No, the right wingers are terrible students of history. They are blindly following Trump like sheep. The only way that they can feel good about themselves is to tear other people down for having brown skin or for thinking differently.

State's delegation rejects condemning Trump for remarks

The one black Republican in the House voted for the measure. To the white guys in Arkansas who are used to most power being in the hands of white men, there is nothing wrong with attacking women of color for their national origins. Disgusting.

House condemns Trump 'racist' tweets in extraordinary rebuke

Also note, that the House’s one black Republican, Will Hurd, voted with the Democrats. Furthermore, while Republicans used to have more Jews, their numbers have dwindled in recent years.

House condemns Trump 'racist' tweets in extraordinary rebuke

Note that four Republicans voted with the Democrats on the resolution, and two of those Republicans are from the swing states of Pennsylvania and Michigan. Now, if we can get the Dems to nominate somebody other than a socialist.

President doubles down on feud with lawmakers

Skeptic,

Trump hosted party with Epsteinand 27 females. Do you really think that Trump is a good guy with respect to women? Also, don’t forget the 15 plus assault/rape accusations. Of course, you think that the women are all lying bitches and that I am a “fake attorney”—lol.

Democrats, Republicans clash at migrant hearing

Lr Crook,

Why do you think he said that we should take more people from Norway? Why do you think he said that Hispanics are rapists and drug dealers? Why do you think he said African nations are $hithole countries? Why do you think his administration puts Hispanics in close quarries without access to water, soap, and adequate food? Why do you think children are ripped out of their parents’ arms. Quit being enablers of torture and abuse. Y’all are no dieffetent than Nazis and Holocaust deniers.

House condemns Trump 'racist' tweets in extraordinary rebuke

America has become a more racist country since Trump became president. The right wingers try to justify their calls to exclude people of color from entering into or staying in our country. Trump has attacked Hispanics as rapists and drug dealers and described African nations as $hithole countries. Worse yet, people are being detained in terrible conditions on our borders. You can be against open borders, but not support abusing people. This is the lowest point in our nation’s history since slavery. Trump is a racist tyrant who is trying to make America whiter just as Hitler tried to kill all the Jews.

Legislator remarks by Trump raise ire

Mozarky,

There are many Muslims in this country and they are entitled to representation. Almost all the Jews serving in Congress are Democrats, and they find Trump’s racism troubling. White supremacists are often anti Semitic as was the man who killed those in the Pittsburgh synagogue. People should not be denigrated because of their religion, color of their skin or national origin. Should Melania be told to go home? Trump tries to blame Hispanics for all of the US problems just as Hitler falsely accused the Jews of causing problems in Europe. It is always wrong to mistreat people. Just as it was wrong for the Nazis to mistreat the Jews, it is wrong for the Trump administration to mistreat the Hispanics. Many of us are not for totally open borders, but people can be sent home and denied entry without torturing them and taking their children. This has gone beyond politics and become a moral issue.

What would our Founders think?

Mozarky,

If conditions weren’t deplorable, they would be open to the press and more widely open to members of Congress. When Pence visited, one can see many men crammed into a holding pen and they are sweating. Juan Castro had to smuggle out his pictures of deplorable conditions. The Trump administration argued in federal court that soap and toothbrushes are not required to be provided to the detainees. You are blind to the truth about Trump or you just don’t care about the horrible conditions. You right wing guys like to ignore the “mainstream media” and just wallow in the filthy lies of your right wing Nazi propaganda machines. These atrocities will come back to haunt us. We are becoming hated the world over. I saw people demonstrating against Trump in Berlin a couple of days ago.
