    That is just silly Jim, you can say that to a white person like Mr. Amaco in my old neighborhood who was a Fascist from Italy who hated this country. We used to have a saying back in the 60s, American, love it or leave it. Mostly directed as college radicals, no race involved.

    You do not see the upside - Trump has elevated these four whack jobs to be the face of the new Democrat party. I can see the endless loops of commercials now...

    Also, the Democrats keep on propagating identity politics. Go figure.
    ALL politics are about identity. The right has simply seized on it as a label to paste the left with, when they do the same things themselves - just with different identities.
    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King

    The upside for the Republicans - not for the Country.

    Ji.
    No it's not.

    Trump's comments were deliberately provocative, but they weren't racist by any stretch.

    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 dont 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 cant leave fast enough. Im sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

    This is clearly a political statement and not a racist one.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    More so to the appeal of the baser instincts of his baser supporters, a.k.a. the basket of deplorables. The rest are trapped as members of the tribe wherein cognitive dissonance and rationalizing takes over.
