One commenter posted, "Nation of immigrants" is one of the liberal excuses for taking in everyone who shows up at our borders.
"There are abundant examples of Trump's explicit racist statements. He didn't campaign in dog whistles; he used a bullhorn. He once called Mexican immigrants 'rapists' and proposed a travel ban on all Muslims entering the United States. Even Republican House leader Paul Ryan once said Trump's comment that a federal judge couldn't do his job because of his Mexican heritage was 'the textbook definition of a racist comment.'"Let's look at these accusations separately.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”Perhaps you haven't noticed, but I have, that most people in the left-media, like these two CNN hacks, never refer to his last sentence, "And some, I assume, are good people." If he didn't mean it, why did he say it? And if he did mean it, why does the media almost uniformly ignore it?
"He once ... proposed a travel ban on all Muslims entering the United States."To a lot of people, that made sense at the time Some of the worst crimes of recent decades, the bloodiest and deadliest, were committed by Muslims who were recently arrived in the USA. Among the general population the interest in the ban was exacerbated by President Obama's insistence on bringing thousands of refugees from war-torn Syria.
"Trump's comment that a federal judge couldn't do his job because of his Mexican heritage was 'the textbook definition of a racist comment.'"Another deliberately false re-statement. Trump didn't say Judge Curiel couldn't "do his job," but that he could not fairly preside over the case against Trump University because the American-born judge was of Mexican descent. Trump believed Curiel would be negatively influenced against Trump in the case because of the latter's political stance of stopping illegal immigration from Mexico.
