So is the milk chocolate their son together?
@mas2de, wow, not only is this post racially unifying, but inclusive of homosexuals. Truly a progressive photo.
Downvote if you must, but I have to ask. After that racist tweet Frump sent to the entire world regarding the 4 congresswoman we have in house, why are there some people that think this is OK?
Not trying to start arguments, but I genuinely need to know why people think that’s ok or still continue to support this tool in office.
To me, he is an embarrassment to my country, an embarrassment to the people of this country, and an embarrassment to the entire world.
@Diabolik, I don't think it was racist. Racism means you think less of someome because of their race. Trump thinks less of them because he thinks they hate America. Their race just provides a place to go back to.
I'm not saying I agree with the tweet. I just don't think it's racist.
@Diabolik, to me, the fact that he didn’t say any names of the Congress people, nor did he tell them to “go back to the countries they came from”, tells me that you are so wrapped up in your hatred for the man that you have to change his words just to simply add more hate.
It’s funny because all the news articles do the same thing. They quote his tweet up to the point where he said “places” and they change it to countries. Then they run that racist card. I would have absolutely ZERO issue with telling a Congress person from Chicago that might put forth a gun control bill to “go back to the crime ridden place you came from and fix that first”. I think that’s perfectly fair
@Diabolik, side note: those congresswomen are trash. And as some people liked to say “not my president”, well they aren’t my Congress people. I think they are a disgrace and awful people so I don’t really care if someone talks trash about them
@Richard Cypher, “So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”
@Poser Pete, so they only quote the bottom section and change the words as I said. Tbh I googled for the full thing and still only can find the bottom junk. But anyway some of them are from crime ridden countries not the US. Plenty of cities in the US are also crime ridden places one can go back to and fix, not just other countries.
I will totally admit his rhetoric is inflammatory as all hell. But I’m cool with it. They all just hate eachother and have no issue making it known lol
@Diabolik, As you can see from Mr. Cypher’s responses, it’s because they are master rationalizers and semantics players, so it doesn’t matter what the president says, as long as he chooses his words JUST carefully enough to make sure he can shade himself from any real, viable condemnation. And you can tell that’s what happened, because of the grammar. Someone was appointed to actually compose this tweet on Trump’s behalf, in order to garner this exact response. Trim doesn’t say things like “from which they came”. There’s not a typo or error in it, as far as I could tell, other than the overall inflammatory remark being, in itself, an error. This whole bit was probably orchestrated to divert eyes away from Trump’s connections to the Epstein case.
@Richard Cypher, Wrong. what @Poser Pete commented is the full, real quote that you can find on Trumps own twitter account.
Trump specifically said “congresswomen”. He didnt say names, but he’s been in a back and forth thing with 4 specific women: Cortez, Omar, Pressley, and Tlaib, so his tweets are pretty specifically addressing. All of which happen to be women of color.
Trump said that they came from other “countries”, which is plural, but only one of them were born outside of the US. The rest were all born here. And even the one who wasnt born here came over here at 10 years old and was an official citizen by 17. So she grew up here.
Telling them to go back to the “places from which they came” and fix them is completely ridiculous no matter how you look at it. They’re in congress. That’s what they’re already trying to do. They’re from the US, acting as representatives in congress - one of the most powerful levels of government in the country. That’s where you to to fix stuff.
@Diabolik, thanks guys, fair enough. Just need to see things from the other side as I find it hard to believe that some of us don’t think it’s racist. It’s clear who he’s exactly talking about; he just has a good way of directing a specific message to a specific person(s) without directing it to them directly lol. I remember 2 years ago when I was so toxic because of the toxic environment Facebook gives us. I’d just completely discredit those who follow him. Still struggling to see the good in this guy, but at least now I make sure I listen to both arguments before I mouth off my mouth 👍
@Richard Cypher, people are taking it as racist because he’s telling women of color to go back to the places they came, specifically mentioning “countries” at the very beginning of his tweet thread.
One of the last lines of his tweetstorm is “you can’t leave fast enough.” Obviously he’s referencing leaving America.
@K1l, eh. Leave congress, leave dc, leave America. Like I said it’s inflammatory sure. But since he didn’t mention anyone by name or race I don’t see it as particularly racist. Hell I would tell Pelosi to leave congress or America for that matter but it has nothing to do with race. I think wanting someone to eff off because of who they are not what they look like isn’t inherently racist. But that’s just me.
Again they all hate each other and are very vocal about it and it gets old.
@Berntley, you can take anything someone said and interpret it how you want. As you said, it was worded just carefully enough and I take it at face value and with a grain of salt. I don’t really care and I’m not reading into it. You attempt to read between the lines to determine a real/alternative meaning behind the words. That’s entirely your choice and I’m all for it. But you judge my comments as well apparently calling me a master rationalizer
@Richard Cypher, You’re basically saying we should all renounce critical thinking skills when you say Trump’s words should be taken at face value. And you are rationalizing what he’s saying by deliberately ignoring the actual continuity of his comment. He begins saying they are originally from different countries (an almost entirely fictional statement), talks about how awful those places are, and then says they need to go back to the “places from which they came”. To ignore the tracking of that is actually willful stupidity. Then again, I’d expect no less when you recognize the inflammatory nature of his comments, and praise him for it.
@Berntley, why should I care if they are inflammatory? They are designed to get a rise and they do. I could not care less if they talk trash about eachother. technically since he didn’t name anyone specifically it could be literally any of the dems. Like I said you choose to read into his words or rather the words that are thrown out by others who read into it too much. It is literally impossible to specifically pin down who he is talking about since there are no names. You assume. That’s your prerogative.
The reason so many people like him is because he says what is real. I don’t give a flying fvck about damn near any of those people in congress who claim to “speak on behalf of America” and make decisions about my life and what I’m allowed to do or spend money on or how much I’m supposed to pay them, while they turn around and shît on the few ideals I do have and act like I am subhuman for not agreeing with them. So yes, they can leave and I would hold the door for every one of them
@Richard Cypher, My initial statement stands. You willfully denounce any critical thinking skills, because it could challenge the basis of your own privilege.
@Berntley, your initial statement is still dumb and inaccurate. Sorry, I fixed it for you
@Richard Cypher, Yes, I suppose I could have said that, but I like to keep things constructive.
@Berntley, not really. You are dismissive of differing viewpoints and aren’t you from uk or something anyway? Regardless, try using your “oh so powerful” critical thinking skills to look at a viewpoint and understand where they come from and even though it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside to dig and find more fault in what you hate, try to understand that your thoughts are entirely skewed by your own bias and views. You choose to read between the lines in a way to support your own view and dismiss others
@Richard Cypher, It’s always interesting to see what picture people have painted of me based on conversations I’ve had on here in the past. People have assumed I’m black, gay, trans, female, from the UK. Always curious. Anyway, I’m probably actually a lot like you. White male, straight, decent job using my degree. House and kids. American Dream, mate. I just want that for everyone else. And that’s something that I don’t see as being possible under the current administration and system.
@Diabolik, it was clear to me that his intentions were to highlight that they should fix the broken systems they left before trying to fix America’s. I didn’t see anything racist about it, but then again, why would I?
@Richard Cypher, how dismissive you are of such statements from the most powerful man in the world is pretty concerning.
If you had any form of critical thinking skills past the 2nd grade level, you’d be able to put 2 and 2 together to see that Trump’s comments were racist.
Cmom man, I don’t think you’re that stupid so im assuming you’re intentionally ignoring the obvious - and im not sure which is worse.
Telling a specific group of congresswomen who are people of color to go back to the crime infested places they came is absolutely ridiculous. They’re from this country. They’re in congress to do exactly that. So, telling them to “go back” is implying to “go back” to their place of ethnic origin - which is a facist Nazi type of mindset that has no business coming from the mouth of an American President.
And whether or not Trump’s comments were racist (which they are), it can very easily be taken by racists to fuel their hatred towards brown people.
@Richard Cypher, and then last night at a rally, Trump brought up Ilhan Omar (an immigrant at childhood) and the crowd starting chanting “send her back”.
He should have shut that shjt down immediately. That mentality is so alarmingly close to facism.
She has a right to be here, just like the rest of us. Trying to kick someone out of the country for having a differing opinion is scarily hypernationalistic and unamerican. The president should not have let those chants go on.
These are the type of issues we were having 50-60 years ago. Trump’s rhetoric is regressive for the country.
@K1l, I don’t care how people interpret others words. If racists take that as some kind of affirmation and they do god knows what, then I would condemn them all the same. But I don’t care about words. They ALL fuel the hate for eachother by arguing and fighting. Neither back down and they keep trash talking eachother. If trump is quiet they continue to poke and prod then trump lashes out and it’s “omg did he really say that” or he says some dumb crap and everyone jumps on it to condemn him. Yadda yadda it goes on and on. I think trump can be a dick, sure. That doesn’t mean he’s wrong all the time.
Of course I can see how everyone interprets his words. My point is that since everyone wants to condemn and attack and bring laws and impeachment over it, then you cannot use a personal interpretation of his words over what was “carefully crafted” in a tweet. At the end of the day he didn’t say a name (besides pelosi) so in the obvious law sense he didn’t target anyone racially.
Just throwing this out but white technically isn’t actually chocolate.
