    Grabbing the most recent poll from Real Clear Politics' list on the subject, here is where they asked about Trump:

    Attachment 40741

    His approval rating is -26 with Hispanics. That's... pretty bad. And most Hispanics who disapprove of him put themselves in the 'strongly disapprove' category rather than merely 'somewhat disapprove'.
    According to that data, 29% of Hispanics either somewhat approve or strongly approve of Trump as President. For a Republican, that's huge.

    There are actually videos of the antifa goons following her and Charlie Kirk (IIRC both headed Turning Point USA or something like that) screaming it and so much more. I can't link to it due to the inability of the local antifa members to go beyond 3 or 4 words without dropping f-bombs.

    Further the same sterling example of antifa start screaming "[F-bomb] the racist police" at the officers who responded to the incident -- which is ironic because none of the police were white.

    So it looks like they were unable to think on their own the antifa goons could only scream what they were capable of memorizing hence we find them calling a black woman a white supremacist and a few black and Hispanic officers racist.

    It was what they were taught.

    Shortly after the launch, The Daily Beast found that approximately 16 percent of the total tweets using the #blexit hashtag were from Twitter accounts associated with the promotion of Russian disinformation.

    Whoda thunk it? White supremacists integrating before liberal elites?


    A none too politically correct friend of mine once said that back in the day Nichelle Nichols set the KKK back 50 years. Amazing what beautiful, intelligent black ladies can do, huh?

    Demonstrably she is a liar. In both the Fox interview and your original link she lies about the race of the police officers. In your original RT link her twitter post claimed there were no white officers. In the Fox interview she has changed her lie to say there was only 1 white officer. I see at least two white police officers in the video which shows only a small portion of the area.

    Your understand of racism is kindergarten level if you think I would shirk from calling her a liar just because she's black. Get a clue. Racism is not about never critiquing black people under any circumstances. That's such a naive and silly understanding of what racism is and why liberals are concerned about it, that I'm surprised at you. Guess I shouldn't be.

    I think people protesting her for her harmful ideas is fine in the general sense - it's the first amendment in action. Obviously there is a line somewhere about decorum and about what a reasonable protest is and isn't and what times and places it is reasonable to protest and what crosses the line into stalking/harassment. I think such a line exists and it's plausible these protesters crossed that line... I don't personally care enough about whether they did or didn't to discuss it further.

    she absolutely says they called her a white supremacist -- it's at 1:50 in the video.
    It appears she does say that. Again that appears to have changed from the earlier account on RT that said the protesters were saying 'down with white supremacy'. She doesn't appear to be very truthful. Unfortunately that's what I've come to expect from US right-wingers in general. Love of truth does not appear to be valued by them in my observation.

    This refers to claims of sexual harassment. The data shows women are overwhelmingly truthful about such claims (>90% of such claims are true). But our culture has a tendency to treat such claims as if they were very unlikely to be true (say ~10%), and demand overwhelming evidence from multiple witnesses before action is taken.

    So as a culture we need to reevaluate how we approach allegations of sexual harassment because our current approaches tend to involve empirically false beliefs about how likely a woman is to make a false allegation about sexual harassment.

    The idea #Believewomen does not refer to the idea or claim that women in general are always truthful about everything... that would be a dumb and obviously wrong claim. We have to be guided by the evidence in all things.

    George W Bush averaged 49% approval from Hispanics across his term. His lowest rating from them, at the end of his presidency, when his ratings had gone down the toilet, was 29%. So Trump's current approval rating from Hispanics is the same as George W Bush at his worst.

    Bush got 35% of the Hispanic vote in 2000, 40% in 2004, McCain got 31% of the Hispanic vote in 2008, Romney 27% in 2012, and Trump 28% in 2016.

    So, no, Trump's Hispanic support is not huge for a Republican. It's among the lowest Republicans have had in the last 20 years.

    Statistically speaking McCain, Romney and Trump pretty much tied. And considering the Romney family ties with Mexico and McCain being from a border state while Trump is subject to a never-ending string of accusations that he hates Hispanics (false claims that he called them animals and the like), that is pretty darn remarkable.
