everyone else realized that white supremacists were to blame. trump attempted to refuse to acknowledge that. that is tacitly protecting them. someone who didn't support white supremacists would have denounced them without being forced into, like pretty much everyone else did.
AgainstEU why don't you explain your position instead of making false claims?
HistoryBuff, please tell me you aren't actually so biased or stupid that you believe what you're saying...You're trying to tell me Trump is racist because he condemned violence from the racists AND from the domestic terrorist group ANTIFA? This conversation is over. I cannot stoop down to your level up ignorance and desperation.
they claim because they are
after violence at a white supremacist march everyone else denounced white supremacists. trump denounced violence on all sides. that is tacit approval. to trump white supremacists and those Fighting against racism we're equal. it took days to talk him into saying anything against the supremacists.
Not 100 examples, not 10 examples, but ONE example of him approving of white supremacy.
Show me ONE INSTANCE where he approved of white supremacy, please.
trump is a racist and has both received support from and given tacit approval of white supremacists. these are well established facts. but if you only watch Fox you probably missed that.
Also, Nemiroff, your definition of "Nazi" is one of the few accurate definitions I've seen. Because a lot of people in the Democratic party consider Trump to be a Nazi, and actually call him a racist and a white supremacists ON THE NEWS.
You're conflating religious views with political views. Nice try though. I could easily do that with Democrats and Satanism, and make you look like a complete idiot, by your own terms.
they way they talk and treat people? lol. ok
pro choice people are murderers.
gays are unnatural deviants.
trans are predators
Mexicans are rapists
Muslims are terrorists
liberals are traitors (Not the leadership, all of them)
it's good to know the right is consistent in their hypocrisy.
"if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them... I promise I will pay your legal fees"
and your the only who brought up Nazis in reference to democrats out of nowhere, so you were making that comparison.
I condone punching Nazis.
and by Nazis I mean proud self proclaimed Nazis who know they are Nazis and March with the Hitler salute chanting "Jews will not replace us".
I mean you are right. Republicans do think they have the moral high-ground when it comes to abortion and everything else you listed. The difference is how they TREAT and speak about these people in the public limelight.
When has a republican ever encouraged their constituents to punch people in the face who disagree with them? Because I've heard Democratic leadership AND MSM condone punching "Nazis" in the face. But who is a Nazi?? According to extreme leftists, it's anyone who listens to Ben Shapiro or Tucker Carlson. And if that is how they define "Nazi", there is NO reason for violence to be promoted PERIOD.
i DID NOT POST THIS COMPARING DEMOCRATS TO NAZIS. I compared THAT IDEOLOGY that SOME Democrats support(look at the first poster on here). And anyone who came on here to argue that, I had assumed disagreed with my statement.
Can you tell me one time that Trump supported violence???
republicans claim moral superiority when it comes to abortion, freedoms, guns. democrats claim moral superiority when it comes to abortion, freedom, guns.
whether you do or don't, both sides are pretty equal in both regards. why do you only see one as the guilty party when both have committed the same crime?
and btw, I never claimed superiority. you entered this thread comparing democrats to nazis and then claimed "in not claiming any superiority" lol. how stupid does that sound?
Yeah, one politician calling a bunch of people deplorable is nowhere near what Hitler was doing. in fact all the instances of trump promoting violence at his rallies is more akin to Hitler.
Hillary mistakenly said that half were deplorable, and she took it back the next day... but in addition to all the maga and frustrated coal miners, trump did attract a whole bunch of deplorables out of the wood work, like his kkk endorsement that took him way too long to denounce.
please, break this step by step down, cause so far you only cited one off hand, retracted comment that insulted, but in no way promoted violence... unlike trump
Well if you actually got those from conservative sources, you are either exaggerating your point or using some sort of extreme right-wing propagandist machine, which most conservatives don't subscribe to.
Whether whites are currently the majority or not is not the point, and even if it WERE the point, it still goes on my side. Who won the popular vote in the 2016 election? Hillary. The one who couldn't stop preaching about white privelege and the deplorable Trump voters.. If you can't see the similarities between the Nazi party and the current Democratic party, I would highly suggest you to read some pre WW2 German literature to enlighten yourself. Because what Democrats are dong now, is EXACTLY, step by step, what the Nazi party did. And the fact that you perpetuate that sort of nonsense, means that we are probably in worse shape than I had thought. At first, I thought that only extremist liberals believed in the nonsense of Democrats being morally superior to Republicans. That is just an absolutely abhorrent thing to say.
none of that came from CNN or msnbc. it came from a variety of right wing sources including everything from breitbart to the national review to fox news. liberals don't usually talk about conservative constituents (unless they kill someone). it's the right that demonizes their opposition by referencing school kids and YouTube bloggers.
Hitler proposed acceptance of the majority group (the aryans) while spreading hate over every other group. once again, which party does that resemble most?
That Democrats are morally superior to Republicans****
Like your argument is literally that Democrats are morally superior to Democrats. I'm saying neither is superior, but the moral superiority Democrats are trying to spread is DANGEROUS.
And it's perpetuating an ideology of hate disguised as acceptance. Which is EXACTLY what Hitler did. Conservatives do NOT engage in this practice. And to say that they do is a blatant lie.
Wow. Demiroff, you watch WAY too much CNN and MSNBC. You need to do some traveling and meet more people. I don't know even a single conservative who believes ANY of the things you listed. Because that would be immoral.
what? it's the republicans indoctrinating people to hate the rapist Mexicans, the man hating feminists, the entitled millenials, the crime predisposed blacks, the Muslim terrorists... pretty much everyone.
which one is perpetuating a philosophy of hate exactly?
Again, if you actually believe that, you're LITERALLY perpetuating the same ideology Hitler did to indoctrinate the Germans into hating Jewish people. Do you think Germans just woke up one day and decided they hated Jews? No. The weak-minded Germans were indoctrinated and actually bought into the BS that Hitler was selling them(that Germans were morally superior, and that exterminating the Jews would be doing the work a favor). And now, you and the rest of your democratic tools are buying into the same BS.
they claim it because they are
