Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 07, 2019

Regardless of Trump's record, the idea of the president being racist is still an incendiary concept for many Americans. Since the civil rights movement, the United States has been in denial of its foundational racism. To admit that the person American chose to represent the nation is a capital-R racist would constitute a betrayal of American exceptionalism.

Its still controversial because General Grant did not kill all the southern racists in 1865 like the constitution recommends.

When he says:

"Mexicans are all rapists"

"-------- countries"

Either you've already been lobotomized and that's why you're such a moron, or you should be lobotomized because you're certifiably insane.

Probably because among normal, civilized people, calling some a racist or 'literally worse than Hitler' is pretty strong statement because, and I know this will shock you - WORDS HAVE MEANING. So, the people calling Trump a racist or literally worse than Hitler are not making Trump look bad, they are just making themselves look stupid.

Taking out full page ads in the NYT to condemn the Central Park 5, then continuing to support their incarceration and execution after they were entirely exhonerated, having a racial indicator applied to every application to rent an apartment owned by Trump, taking children away from their parents and incarcerating those children while deporting their parents....give me a break. He is a racist piece of filth. When you pretend otherwise it causes me to suspect you are too.

I have to agree with you, Trump is totally not worse than Hitler. If that is your criteria to determine racism then an awful lot of racism can flow under your bridge before you see it. Hitler is a very high racist standard and very few racists today can rise to his level but, by the same token, his second wife did say that he kept a book of Hitler's speeches on his nightstand every night. One has to ask, why would anyone do that?

And this article is absolutely an indication of why racism will never go away in America. I believe in treating everyone the same. If a black person commits a crime, he/she should be punished. If a white person commits a crime, he/she should be punished. But to Liberals, that is not how it should happen. The FBI already released their 2016 and before figures that prove the police aren't just out arresting black people but Liberals want to ignore that. To Liberals, anything that doesn't improve a minority's welfare means it is racist, regardless of who else it may hurt. Liberals don't want free speech, equal opportunity, or fair play. They want people of their choosing to be treated differently because of their race or nationality.

Trump may be "old time" racist but that doesn't stop Liberals from being the new age racists. History repeats itself, only this time it is the Liberals who are on the morally correct side...unfortunately, their solution is to discriminate against others in order for those who have been discriminated against already to get fair play. So today, we have the Dems who want selective discrimination and Reps who want equal treatment for all. The only different angles that can be logically supported with facts that could prove any kind of discrimination is class warfare or sexual orientation discrimination by the Reps, but as far as skin color, nationality, etc. go, the Reps have no evidence they care about them. It's the Dems who can't think logically about something so they choose the easiest route by blaming racism because they know it riles up their base.

You just see it that way because you tke joy in being willfully ignorant. What Trump did with the travel ban is identifying the same problem as Obama but then actually implementing the plans that Obama was too much of a empty suit to get done. Further, that was just stage 1 in making this country great/safe again. Sorry that your assumed illegal voter base is finally being told they don't have a right to come here illegally.

Disregarding the first bit, which is an outright falsehood; you've ignored Stonewall "Cocaine" Mitch. You also ignore that immigration on the Southern border decreased while Obama was in office. What you do get right is this; "[The] assumed illegal voter base is finally being told they don't have a right to come here illegally". Now I am not sure why you said this, but its good you acknowledge that our voter base is only assumed to be illegal by the racist morons that support trump and the ONF while actually being fully legal citizens of this great nation. We the People of this great nation also already know that we cannot come here illegally. By already being here, physically and legally, its an irrational premise to say we can come here illegally. But that aside, We the People also respect the rule of law, unlike the racist morons that support trump and the ONF, so we understand that in a hypothetical situation where we are outside the US, we'd seek a legal port of entry and return, humbly, to our wonderful, liberal country.

Trump championed birtherism for 8 years.

He believes Mexicans are rapists and criminals. Muslims are terrorists. Other countries are "Shhthole nations".
