Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

The US House of Representatives has voted to symbolically condemn President Donald Trump after a series of attacks aimed at four congresswomen. The resolution denounced Mr Trump's "racist comments that have legitimised fear and hatred of New Americans and people of colour".

They probably would have had a much higher vote margin for the rebuke without the contested R-word allegation, but no they wanted to keep it political. Wouldn't surprise me if Trumped called Pelosi up on the phone and told her to do it this way. Or maybe he mentioned it when they were in bed together.

"Trumps team are all perverts and crooks."

When we consider who and what it is they defend, what does it say about them? Does anyone who posts here think Andrea is actually a good, nice, decent human being. I certainly don't.
These people are who the words "-----------" were originated. Trump and his family are the epitome of "-----------." They honestly believe having money is the same thing as having class. When they all went to London and embarrassed the nation they showed how shallow and clueless all of them are. It was almost like the Beverly Hill Billy Clampetts had been invited to visit the Royal family except that the Clampetts would have had more class.

Real anti-semitism? Or fake anti-semitism that the right loves to trot out whenever anybody criticizes Israel?

Because the only thing that bears repeating is that righties love to cry anti-semititism as a cudgel against critics of Israel...all while whining about progressives who cry racism as a cudgel against righties.

In any case it's whataboutism crap. Are you really supporting that? Is your racist side itching with tension over all this?

"if not overtly racist."

the vast majority of the arguing from everyone is over the disagreement as to it meeting the definition of "racism".

we have some here who think everything is racism and we have some here who think nothing is racism.

In the middle, we have folks who think a standard has to be met to qualify as racism. But the standards vary greatly, it would seem.

But 99% of us all agree the comments are over the line, unbecoming, childish, and an obvious attempt to keep Trump's base engaged.

"In the middle, we have folks who think a standard has to be met to qualify as racism. But the standards vary greatly, it would seem."

I told a friend last night that IMO if Trump had simply said, which he is saying now, "If you don't like it here, you can leave" that wouldn't have been racist because people were often told to leave and to move Europe or Canada when they disagreed with the Vietnam War or the war in Iraq, for example. For me, it was the "go back to where you came from" that made it racist, but my friend disagreed. He said it is still racist for the president to say "if you don't like it here, leave" given who is saying it (someone with a history of dog whistling racists) and who he I saying it to (4 young women of color).

People who don't think that Trump's tweets were racist should talk to people who have been told to go back to where you came from. If someone told an American Jew who immigrated here from somewhere else to go back to their home country (or to Israel), most would consider it anti-Semitism, and yet some of those same people don't think saying the same thing to others is likewise a form of racism/bigotry.

Trump's premeditated racism is central to his 2020 strategy
www.axios.com

...It might seem like improvisational madness when President Trump tells American citizens in Congress to "go back" where they came from, but those close to Trump say there's a lot of calculation behind his race-baiting.

Why it matters: It's central to his 2020 strategy, they say. Trump's associates predict more, not less, of the race-baiting madness.

The rough calculation goes like this:

Trump knows that in 2016, he won the white vote by 20+ points.
He hopes he can crank their turnout even higher, especially among older, white evangelicals. He knows most of those voters are unlikely to ditch him, no matter how offensive his comments.
He watches Fox News and knows AOC, in particular, is catnip to old, white voters, especially men. She is young, Hispanic, female and a democratic socialist -- a 4-for-4 grievance magnet. Last week, AOC got nearly as much online attention as all 2020 Democrats combined.
Trump believes he did better than Mitt Romney among Hispanic voters because many who came here and went through the legal process agree with his views. ...


The list continues in the article...


I had thought this this will get worse, a lot worse. I'm not looking forward to how things look in the summer of 2020...

From 2015 until today Trump runs on a platform of Make America Great Again. This means that America was not great until Trump was elected to 'fix' it from faults and problems self-identified by Trump. This is called criticism of America, something Trump now says is unpatriotic and intolerable.

The issue isn't what is being said - First Amendment and all that - the issue is who is saying what, and whether or not that person(s) is considered a real American by the nationalist standards held by those decrying specific criticizers whose views they oppose while heralding and elevating others with whom they agree.

I don't know a lot of Trumpers, but I do know some, most of whom are family members or members of my extended family, and most of them are like the people you describe--i.e., they are good people in just the ways you have outlined. They don't spend time online and don't get into the political weeds the way we do on here. There are a few people in my extended family who are what I would call rabid Trumpers. One of them, for example, has this posted on his fb page: "Socialism=communism. Death to Communism." The rabid Trumpers I know could also be defined as good people by the terms you've set out, but from my observation, they tend to be angrier and have less empathy than the less rabid Trumpers I know. They are less able to walk a mile in someone else's shoes if that someone is significantly different from them. My 2 cents.

There's a difference between "fix" and "remodel" or fundamentally transforming.

There is a large difference between enforcing laws the Congress created, and tearing down the border security apparatus, and the repeal of Section1325.

Also, claiming the military caused Somali deaths is a lie, its not patriotic it idiotic. You can be critical and still be patriotic about Somali, but not denigrate their deaths.

I agree with Trump on this, if this place is such a disaster/concentration camps etal, that you believe it needs "fundamental transformation", just leave, and take your avocado toast with you.

Boaz is called "lilly white redneck" on this site almost every day even though he's black.
J Tremain is teased about having sex with goats, his sister, and told to go back to Pakistan daily.
Several posters regularly gay shame, make still-in-the-closet jokes, and other juvenile anti-LGBTQ locker room insults.

So don't pretend you get to call out racists and bigots, because you are one.

Same goes for any of you who didn't call out the racism and bigotry when it happens here daily.

It's also that they're totally in on the 'liberal tears' type of thinking. If it upsets somebody, they love. If they think it'll upset somebody, the love it.

So it's not just policy that they like about Trump, most of which they'd get from any GOP POTUS and of which they're not particularly well informed anyway to have a dependable opinion, but they love the drama, the crass outbursts, and yes, the racism and xenophobia.

I can't overlook who Trump is as a person. It's why I didn't vote for him.

Having said that, I understand, from a policy standpoint, why some of his supporters are willing to overlook his personal and unforgivable flaws.

Most of the leaders of the Democratic Party are openly embracing de facto open borders, for example.

Most of the Democrat presidential hopefuls are calling for the cancellation of private health insurance in lieu of a government-run system with no means of funding.

Throw in "free college", student loan forgiveness, no limits on abortions up to the point of birth and reparations.

Trump is an objectively horrible person but on policy he's sane and rational compared to what Democrats are currently pushing.
