    It has never meant anything good
    What is wrong with anti-immigration sentiments?
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    Well I'm not authoritarian and I used it against protesters back in the day. And what the "squat" is suggesting is hatred of America - concentration camps? We don't do concentration camps. America, right or wrong, yeah boy!

    So, like most soft headed liberals, it's only "democratic" if it agrees with your jackass viewpoint.

    How bout an idiotic racist statement like....

    "We donít need black faces that donít want to be a black voice, "We donít need Muslims that donít want to be a Muslim voice. We donít need queers that donít want to be a queer voice. If youíre worried about being marginalized and stereotyped, please donít even show up because we need you to represent that voice."


    Is that "democratic", or is it "authoritarian".
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    For the sarcastically impaired the following is said in jest

    Don't you know? Only whiteys can be racist.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. Ė St. John Chrysostom

    For Trump to use it and double down on it can really lead to no other conclusion.


    Jim
    I say that about those liberal Hollywood Canadians all the time. I guess I am racist? All it means is if someone comes here and is doesn't like the way we do things here or doesn't like the country, then leave. It has nothing to do with their race, but their attitude.

    The honorable Dr. Ben Carson defends Trump, says the President is not racist.

    Trump got a nice 5-point boost after calling out "the squad" for their hateful, anti-American rhetoric.

    Meanwhile, Omar says she has no regrets about making anti-Semitic comments.

    I think people assuming everyone of some foreign nation are all the same race is kinda racist.

    This is an apples-to-oranges comparison.
    How stupid can you be Carp? It is the same message: "If you don't like our county, then leave."

    You can address either to a group, a population, or an individual of any nationality or race.

    I will assume you disagree and are incensed by my rude language, calling you stupid, and that this means you will no longer talk to me and I can have the last word, so no need to respond -- this can be the last word.

    He's right. I tried to explain it to you before too, but you didn't listen. Try google or a dictionary. It's about a group making themselves more important than others or their own party. Like Black Lives Matter, or the Transgender bathroom fiasco.
