The KK-who, now?
The KK-who, now?

Donald Trump is simply shocked, shocked that anyone would think he’s friendly to racist groups, although over the weekend he seemed unwilling to say they were exactly bad. On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Trump refused to disavow an endorsement by former KKK leader David Duke when host Jake Tapper asked him about it:

Just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I don’t know. I don’t know — did he endorse me, or what’s going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke; I know nothing about white supremacists.

Trump also insisted that he wasn’t about to issue a blanket condemnation of people who might turn out to be really nice folks under their white robes:

I have to look at the group. I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them and certainly I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong. You may have groups in there that are totally fine — it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups and I’ll let you know.

By Monday morning, Trump had figured it all out and decided he simply hadn’t heard the question, because CNN gave him a “lousy earpiece,” as he explained on NBC’s “Today” show:

 

 

 

I’m sitting in a house in Florida, with a very bad earpiece that they gave me, and you could hardly hear what he was saying. What I heard was “various groups.” And I don’t mind disavowing anybody and I disavowed David Duke.

Strange, since he certainly heard it well enough to claim he’d never heard of this David Duke fellow, whom he had in fact condemned Friday. Trump was happy to disavow Duke, he said, but then Tapper had to go and ask him about “groups,” which threw him. Groups and groups! What is “groups”? How can anyone ask Donald Trump to disavow “groups,” when he needs all the support he can get? Won’t anyone recognize that the real victim here is Donald Trump, who is being hounded by the politically correct media? Besides, as Trump pointed out, he had already disavowed David Duke “all weekend long on Facebook and Twitter. Obviously, it’s never enough.” Won’t anyone cut Donald Trump a break? He’s already said he’s against Hitler, isn’t that enough for you people?

Sadly, even though Donald Trump now has a 100 percent airtight explanation for his remarks, the CNN appearance was enough to lose Trump the love of one media BFF, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, who said Monday morning he is no longer in love, and he and Donald will are never ever getting back together:

That’s disqualifying right there. It’s breathtaking. That is disqualifying, right there. To say you don’t know about the Ku Klux Klan? You don’t know about David Duke? And the most stunning thing is … this isn’t buying him a single vote. I mean, is he really so stupid that he think southerners aren’t offended by the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke? Is he really so ignorant of southern voters that he thinks this is the way to their heart, to go neutral…when you’re talking about the Klan?

We’re looking forward to seeing whether Scarborough buys Donald’s “earpiece” story. Can this relationship be saved?

Not surprisingly, Trump’s opponents in both parties immediately jumped on poor misunderstood Donald. All the Republicans took pains to remind Trump that racial animus has to be confined to dog whistles, after all. Marco Rubio said at a rally Sunday:

We cannot be the party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan […]

By the way, not only is that wrong, it makes him unelectable. How are we going to grow our party with a nominee that refuses to condemn the Ku Klux Klan? Don’t tell me he doesn’t know what the Ku Klux Klan is. This is serious.

Ted Cruz also issued the mandatory condemnation of Trump on the Twitter machine:

cruz trump kkk tweet

John Kasich tweeted: “Hate groups have no place in America. We are stronger together. End of story.”

While Ben Carson hadn’t said anything about Trump’s remarks as of late Sunday, we’re sure he’d condemn them, although it’s entirely possible he didn’t hear the question either.

Bernie Sanders tweeted, “America’s first black president cannot and will not be succeeded by a hatemonger who refuses to condemn the KKK,” and Hillary Clinton, on hearing about Trump’s remarks from a reporter, simply said, “Oh, that’s pathetic”:

Not everyone was quite so quick to say Trump had misspoken, of course. Mike Huckabee emphasized on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show that Trump had indeed disavowed the Duke endorsement, adding that you’d have to be crazy to think Trump tolerates racism:

“Does anybody think Donald Trump is a racist?” Huckabee asked. “I don’t. I mean, I really don’t. I don’t know of anything in his life that indicates that this man has racist tendencies.”

It’s purely coincidental that a whole bunch of open neo-Nazis and white supremacists love him, after all. Besides, Huck added, nobody makes any bones about Hillary Clinton’s friendly relationship with the late Robert Byrd, rolling out a racist dodge that’s way older than the ’69 Charger in “Dukes of Hazzard.”

Finally, as NPR discovered at a Trump rally in Alabama Sunday, the comments certainly haven’t hurt Trump’s standing with his supporters, who think the whole fuss is overblown, just more Political Correctness run amok:

NPR spoke to Paul Noel, who identified himself as a research scientist from Madison, Alabama. He wasn’t having any of this nonsense about “racism”:

“That is only intended by certain persons to split us apart as a nation rather than solve problems,” Noel said. When asked if he was concerned by the fact that there were hardly any people of color at the Trump rally, he responded, “The problem is the black people in America.”

Noel said he believes African-Americans are too quick to vote for Democrats.

“American blacks are unsophisticated in understanding that they need to make people earn their vote,” he said. “We have had a batch of people who played like race was an issue. I don’t see anybody here wanting to hurt a black person or cut their opportunities or anything.”

See? No racism at all, except for those unsophisticated blacks who refuse to get off the Democrat Plantation, where they’re addicted to all the free Obamaphones, no doubt. Donald Trump has always had a great relationship with the blacks. How great a relationship does he have with the blacks? Well, as his son, Donald Trump Jr. explained on “Fox and Friends,” if black celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg don’t want to stay in the USA under President Trump, then the Trump clan is perfectly fine with that:

“I’ll buy them their airfare,” Trump Jr. said, laughing. “I’m more than happy to chip in.”

Trumpmerica! Love it or leave it, or you’re the real racist.

    Are they? Because they seem pretty chill with the Confederate flag, Confederate monuments, and Confederate organizations.

    Shit, how many schools or roads are named after Nathan Bedford Forrest? How many statues or monuments does that shithead have? And if they were removed or renamed, how long did that take?

    We cannot be the party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan

    “I know, I know, guys. But don’t be worried. We can still be the party of voter ID, anti-Affirmative Action, race baiting, and talk of young bucks with T-bone steaks and welfare queens and lazy immigrants that don’t share our values and steal our jobs,” he added.

    • JMP

      How can they not be ” the party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan” when they are the party of white supremacy? The only difference with Trump is that he’s not trying to hide the racism and pretend to be respectable, but really, if you kicked all the white supremacists out of the Republican party, they would no longer have anyone left.

      • chazmanr

        Oh, they’d still have some people left, but they would have less influence than the Green Party.

    • limberrat

      A lot has to do with the fact that they have been fed bullshit history, so they can claim they aren’t racist. I dealt with this issue continuously within reenacting circles. The Confederate flag, according to bullshit history, was originally not racist and was highjacked by racist elements and is a heritage thing. I know plenty of people who are clearly not racist who have fallen for this bull and spew it as fact. Unfortunately, since the Confederacy was founded for some pretty racist reasons, this has little weight to stand on.

      As for Nathaniel Bedford Forrest, the Bullshit history is that he formed the KKK as a gentleman’s club and that he became horrified when it turned violently racist. The mental gymnastics for this one still confuses me, especially since it was originally formed to try to “re-enfranchise” white people and was damned racist at its inception.

        thanks totally doing that. the porno ads are totally depressing early in the morning.

        • Blank Ron

          More depressing than stories about Drumpf?

  • OneYieldRegular

    And yet, the Chair of the RNC, Reince Preibus, and both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz say that they’ll support Donald Trump if he’s the Republican nominee.

    • Takoma DC

      I’m shocked! Shocked I tells ya’!

  • UncleTravelingMatt

    Maybe Huck can tell us which is worse, god-wise: being racist or pretending be a racist for political purposes.

  • JohnBull

    Well, the Klan DID adopt a highway once. This is why pencils have erasers.

    • SuspectedDemocrat

      As I recall, that became one of the most littered-on highways and they never really cleaned it. Then they child services took it away or something.

  • Lefty Frizzell

    Sick fuck is playing both sides – was it a real condone followed by a nudge-wink condemn, or a nudge-wink condone followed by a real condemn?

    In the end it doesn’t really matter whether he’s supporting or playing the KKK vote. Either way – he has a history of racist statements and is courting violent racists, and while that is a plus in the primary I’d bet it’s a big minus in the general.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      The short term thinking of the MBA, right there.

  • Clifton Woodford

    Of course Huck defends Trump. The Donald gave Huck’s daughter a job.

  • SuspectedDemocrat

    Funny thing is, he could condemn the KKK in the strongest terms and they’ll still vote for him because of course he has to say that for the cameras.

    • eddi

      Traditionally a KKK endorsement these days finishes off a Reb candidate’s run. Donny breaks the mold again.

    • Takoma DC

      Well, wink-wink, nudge-nudge he wouldn’t dis A Vow Duke or the kkk. Now he’s just sayin’ what he has to say cuz of the blahs and brohs and moosleems and hispanix and the jewey liberrall media.

  • MrBlobfish

    I don’t think he supports the Klan. I think he doesn’t understand half of what he is asked and just blurts out any old answer without considering what he is actually saying. Then denying he said what he said or blaming the liberal media.

    My spidey-sense says this story will bring out the Deleted Comments. Let me be the first:

    Anyone with half a brian knows that Donald J Trump is NOT racist and does not HATe anyone. He loves all reel Americans, even the KKK-ers. Democrat Party Robert Bird was KKK whom endorsed Killary K Klinton in 1995. But you don’t halve half a brian. If Donald K Trump was a RACIST he wood not be loved by Hispanic’s and The Black’s. He is a winenr which you CANNOT stand. He lives buy the words of the 2 Corinthians: Marriage is between a one man and his wives not Adam and Steve. When you hat Donald j Trump, you are help the terrorisms kill us. MAKE AMERIA GREAT A GAIN.

    Well, the KKK is not Politically Correct or even decent for that matter, so his supporters have a point while missing the bigger point.

  • Gleem-McShinez

    I can’t hear you asking me about David Duke at all. It’s this earpiece, it seems to just cut out every time you say Shwavid Shwook. I’ve never heard of this guy Flavid Fluke, or his group, you say is the Schmoo Schmux Schmann?? He’s a “White Phlebotomist? or Flight Supremacist?” I just can’t even hear you at all, so I’ll check into these groups later and get back to you about this “Bravid Buke” and his “Hey-Hey-Hey organization.”

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Applesauce! Jiggery-Pokery! Swifty! D-Money!

    • Takoma DC

      Eww gross! White Phlebotomists!

  • Mahousu

    Trump thought the question was about Daisy Dukes, not David Duke. He’s not quite sure about the former, other than that his daughter looks really hot in them.

  • ken_kukec

    Because if there’s one thing Trump is known for, it’s careful research before shooting his mouth off.

    In Trumpworld, there’s only one test of another human being’s worth, the one the Donald applied to the pope: Did he say something good or bad about me?

  • YayConspiracy

    There I was, all the time thinking it was his hairpiece.

  • Pinkham’s Law

    Even if he had a bad earpiece (he didn’t) and didn’t know who Duke is (he did), and was legit concerned about denigrating “groups” which might not actually be racist (he wasn’t), how the fuck did he not at least say, “I disavow the KKK and any groups with similar beliefs.”? Just . . . how? Does he think so many of his followers are viciously racist that he would lose votes by saying that?

    • jviscont1

      It is trickle down racism when you put the KKK atop the pyramid. The hate dilutes on its way down to just acceptable dog whistle code.

    • SK

      Yes, he is. And he is right. If he does not reassure that he’ll be pro-racist, he’ll lose that voting bloc. It is a large percentage of the GOP, you know.

      • Pinkham’s Law

        Yeah, I know. I should’ve closed with a “I’m not saying they are – just asking questions,” to make the point clearer.

  • TheBidenator

    The sad part of this, or the hilariously predictable part of it is that Republicans still cannot grasp that their base is full of awful racists like we’ve been telling them it is composed of for years. I mean seriously, what is there that a conservative who pays attention can find to support Donald Trump on? When it comes to the ‘three legged stool’ Trump either embraces almost none of it or what he does embrace he used to be staunchly against. So what aside from naked appeals to racism could explain the attraction of the GOP base to him? I really cannot find anything else.

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      They know. You don’t spend a fortune hiring Luntz to figure out how to phrase things to sell your candidates to racists without knowing this.

      • Skadi

        They’re furious and hysterical about Trump for the same reason they were angry at Trent Lott. As Calvin Trillin put it:

        Republicans feel anger, unconcealed,
        Because Trent Lott revealed what he revealed.
        They’ve always reassured the racist clods
        By using code, festooned with winks and nods.
        But now Lott’s blown the gaff, for, once he’d spoken,
        The world could see the Southern race-code broken.

    • Redgyal

      He says what they can’t way in public. (hint, hint)

    • Shibusa
    • Takoma DC

      Oh come on now. You don’t really believe their “indignation” do you?

  • SK

    And the most stunning thing is … this isn’t buying him a single vote. I mean, is he really so stupid that he think southerners aren’t offended by the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke? Is he really so ignorant of southern voters that he thinks this is the way to their heart, to go neutral…when you’re talking about the Klan?

    Actually, yes. In fact, neutral won’t cut it, you have to say “The KKK may have been racist, but it was founded by Robert Byrd, who was a Democrat. But they also were about law and order, something my Southern brethren would acknowledge is needed instead of the no borders we have down there”

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      Huh? It was founded after the Civil War.

      • Lizzietish81

        BY DEMOCRATS!

    • Shibusa

      A group that included former Confederate veterans founded the first branch of the Ku Klux Klan as a social club in Pulaski, TN, in 1866. Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest was the first grand wizard of the Klan.

      I was actually so tired I couldn’t pretend to not hear him so when he said (he was talking about how the AFFORDABLE Care Act made healthcare so much more expensive before) that I burst out laughing loudly to try and drown him out. My friend across the line from me was a little worried I found alcohol on campus somehow (she knows I don’t drink). Aaaaand he said that Hitler’s plan was three steps 1) take over health control 2) create stricter gun laws 3) start a war (not sure how Obama did that, must be a secret war!…) and I was so busy mocking his conservatism (to him, also he started speaking German and said he loved Germany, pretty sure he meant the fascist part of their history but if Obama is fascist that means—- oh for chrissakes I wish these people would be consistent) I forgot to ask if he thought Trump would Make America Great Again.

      The difference between the KKK and Ted Cruz? Trump will unequivocally denounce Cruz.

        It’s actually KKKruz. They changed it to Cruz to reflect their love for Canada.

  • Joshua Norton

    Huck added, nobody makes any bones about Hillary Clinton’s friendly relationship with the late Robert Byrd

    A lot of greater wingnutia is trotting out their old stand-by wheeze that the clan is a liberal Dem hate group. Like everyone is supposed to believe that bunch somehow got left behind when Tricky Dick and Reagan were busily instituting their Southern Strategy.

    Time for a reality check folks. You can’t spell KKK without the letters GOP.

    • Shibusa

      That Foxbot fantasy that there was no greater friend to Civil Rights than the Republicans drives me crazy. Southern white supremacy operated out of the Democratic Party beginning in the 19th century, but the party began attracting northern liberals, including African-Americans, and over time the liberals prevailed, forcing the Democratic Party to support civil rights, and driving conservative (and especially southern) whites into the loving arms of the GOP.

          Fought in the Civil Rights movement. African American campaign staffers (paid). Race inequality and mass incarceration justice reform are parts of his platform.

          Or did you believe HRC’s platform included these issues prior to her own? The HRC platform is Sanders’ platform. Everyone knows this. Just look over Clinton’s campaign “message” prior to July 2015 and the her message after 7/15. Coincidence?

          Yes she’ll win the nomination but 80% of her platform is his.

          • zerosumgame0005

            um, no he never “fought” or marched with MLK, he got arrested, once, then went back to his mom’s basement to take credit for the late Bruce Rappaport’s picture in every photo since. and blaming Hillary for mass incarceration is not just mis-leading, it indicates you have taken your “history” straight from a KKKarl Rove source. if Bernie is so “pure” why is he taking support from Rove and the Koch’s and not contributng to the down-ticket races?

            http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/crime/2016/02/michelle_alexander_blames_hillary_clinton_for_mass_incarceration_she_shouldn.single.html

          • Takoma DC

            I never said he marched with MLK. Where did you read that? His parents’ home did not have a basement nor did they live in Chicago. I didn’t blame Mrs.Clinton for anything but except taking credit for “creating” a platform which was almost entirely copied from Sanders’ campaign. I have never listened to Karl Rove or read anything that he’s ever said about anything. I didn’t even know he was still relevant in 2016.

            Have a great day!

          • zerosumgame0005

            BERNIE (or his bots) claimed he marched with MLK, if Hillary is held responsible for everything anyone who supports her says, then he needs to own it as well. and trying to pretend Hillary has not been fighting for equal rights for EVERYONE since she was in college, well then you would just be regurgitating tired old FAUX bullshit. which in the real world is called lying. going to bring up BENGHAZI!!!!1!11! or the emails next?

          • Takoma DC

            Again, I never said what you claim I said. You should try to respond to people based on their words. Not on the words of others. You asked a question. I answered it honestly. I see now that I was foolish because your inquiry was not sincere. You only want to hear what you want to hear. Which is really strange because Mrs.Clinton is the Democratic nominee. Your passion is all for nothing.

    As another Wonketeer pointed out recently, Trump was quite familiar with David Duke in 2000. He wrote a piece in the NYTimes about Duke and the Reform Party.

    He wrote, “…I leave the Reform Party to David Duke, Pat Buchanan and Lenora Fulani. That is not company I wish to keep….”

  • sw19womble

    I’ve got to say, although HRC remains a card-carrying member of the War Party, the withering minimalism of her “Oh that’s pathetic” will destroy whatever idiot the GOP puts up in front of her.
    I fear that Bernie, lord love him, is a little too blustery and could get sidelined in a straight-up debate.
    Also, kudos for both Bernie’s tweet and Hillary’s retweet. Working together to defeat the common enemy. Haven’t seen that coming out of DNC for a good long while. Maybe they decided to sidestep DWS completely. I hope a lot of grassroots candidates follow suit.

    You know I am not a racist, but with great successful white people like Drumpf it is easy to see why people would think whites are superior.

    • chimichanga

      Poe’s Law? Am I dense?

      • Takoma DC

        Trump is white and has a lot of money. To most Americans this means he’s superior and worthy of respect adoration and votes.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          Unfortunately, a lot of Americans seem to think that falling out of a uterus into a pile of money confers superiority on someone.

      • Starfish

        Then why doesn’t Trump want unoccupied Mexico? Fear of Montezumas revenge?

    • cat cafe

      No, no, you silly. He promised to build death camps and Poland DID pay for them.

      • Starfish

    Scarborough is extremely naive if he really believes that being, let’s say cordial, with white supremecy groups (based south-north-east-west doesn’t really matter imo) would not be beneficial for any gop candidate but especially Trump. Scarborough is either out of touch with Americans (and much of his own audience) or being disingenuous. He’s a smart guy. I’m just not smart enough to understand why he made such a naive statement.

    “Well, as his son, Donald Trump Jr. explained on
    “Fox and Friends,” if black celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg don’t want
    to stay in the USA under President Trump, then the Trump clan is
    perfectly fine with that:”

    Back to this crap again? A decade ago, all I heard was “love it or leave it” anytime I offered any criticism of American foreign policy. Obama gets elected and instead of replying the same, I decide to accept suboptimal outcomes to move the ball down the field. And now they want to export all the liberals again. Maybe conservatives should be the ones to go all John Galt on US America.

    • zerosumgame0005

      I have been hearing “love it or leave it” since the 60’s, it seems when a dolt latches onto a bullet point their little pointy heads never let it go

      • Villago Delenda Est

        This “He’s not MY President!” shit started after Clinton kicked Poppy Bush out of the White House. I can’t recall anyone having such an attitude when Reagan took over. But the GOP thinks that the White House BELONGS to them ever since that shitty grade Z movie star replaced Jimmy Carter.

        • bobbert

          Yup. I got pretty sick of that in the 90s. My usual response was “If he’s not YOUR President, why don’t you give me your 401(k) gains?”

    • The Wanderer

      My usual response to “Love it or leave it!” is “No.”

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        My usual response is “This is my country, the one that elected Obama twice. You are not having it back, so sorry not sorry”

    • notfromvenus

      In the US, the left generally values representative democracy as an inherent good, regardless of the outcome, because whatever it is reflects the will of the people. If your political rival gets elected, well that sucks, but it’s the will of the people, so let’s be civil to each other and we’ll get another shot in a few years.

      The right, on the other hand, increasingly views democracy as merely a means to get what they want, and if the outcome isn’t in their favor, they assume the results must somehow be stolen or false and not represent “real Americans”.They think their political rivals aren’t just advocating bad policy, but rather are actual traitors who are trying to destroy the country – and so they justify to themselves efforts to obstruct the basic functioning of government and hold it hostage.

      This is dangerous, it really is.

  • Blackest Noobs

    Trump speaks like a lawyer, or one told by a lawyer how to speak.
    he never exactly supports one position or other.

    • Grokenstein

      And every time he gets nailed, he cries that he needs to “examine the issue.” For a guy who tells everyone he’s ready to be President, he sure has a lot of stuff to “figure out.”

      • JustDon’tSayDittos

        Yeah, he should borrow all of that reading material from Her Mooseness. It’s a little outta date, but then so is David Duke.

  • TheBidenator

    I’m sure this is all Obama’s fault for being both black and not sufficiently deferential to white people….if only he’d known his place and at least OFFERED to shine John McCain/McConnell/Boehner’s shoes just once the hard white er, right wouldn’t be perma up in arms about it.

  • Jen_Baker_VA

    I see, the problem is not that they are racist, the problem is that the blackity blacks with their blackness are so unsophisticated as to not vote for the party that denies: science.

  • E S

    John Oliver, on his Last Week show, which aired on Sunday, spent 20 minutes on Trump. Among his investigative journalism, he learned that Trump’s predecessors changed their name from Drumpf to Trump. He’s selling hats to the effect, and suggests that all of us begin to use the former moniker. I agree that this is a good idea.

    He also said, “Donald Trump is either pretending he’s a racist, or he really is one, and at some point it doesn’t make any difference.”

    Great segment. Wish that more people with a pulpit like his, shared his passion and intelligence, not to say, his wit.

The African American lady I was sitting next to kept talking about how wonderful Trump was….my head exploded (quietly)…and when I questioned her as to why…basically gobbledygook…she blames Obama for her health insurance woes (I told her it was TEXAS rethugs fault Texas has such dismal crap)…and Trump is so honest and never changes his tune…(head exploding). It was just astonishing…she belongs to a highly religious Pentacostal (sp?) church and is voting for Trump. Go figure.

      The question is, what do you do about it? They can’t be reasoned with, you can’t imprison them until they break the law (and get caught and convicted) and there’s nowhere to send them. On top of that, racism is built into much of our government – until a few days ago, they even controlled the Supreme Court.
      Really, they’re not in the cellar – they’re on the sofa in the living room.

      • Stein Olsen

        The question is rather what to do with future white supremacy advocates. Reform the government. Install “a real separation” of church and state. To do that, boost education because knowledge is the best weapon here. In an informed society, religion will begin to die. It has always walked hand in hand with racial hate and ignorance. Eliminate religious influence in your political discourse and you have taken a huge step. But this will take time, as it took to come to this.

    • Jugears McGhetto Jr

      You’re so misinformed and MALFUNCTIONING how do wipe your asss in the morning> or do you? You know danged well that’s not what he said, and 80% of the people int his country, 40% of whom are too wussified to say anything feel exactly as he does.

      Its ok for Obama to put higher fences around our white house but not on our borders.. I bet half the people on this thread have fences around their houses, and especially you folks in the State Prisons around the nation using this site… Sick mental defects. You know what I call you people? The land of the misfit toys.. You’re all social rejects and mental cases.

      Donald Trump said nothing about the people coming over that border that wasn’t entirely true… Perhaps if you people worked for a living you would care about the third world filth stealing our jobs, raping our children and women, turning our cities into TJ and killing innocent Americans whereever they go, and I KNOW, I live outside the nastiest filthiest Liberal Dump on planet earth, Chicago.

      35 years outside that dump watching minorities slaughter one another week after week after week… Here’s the lowdown on that 50 year run liberal dump:

      98% ALL VIOLENT CRIMES ATTRIBUTED TO MINORITIES.
      75% OF THAT CRIME IS BY BLACK PEOPLE AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE IN A SO CALLED GUN FREE GUN CONTROL ZONE.. 50 A WEEK FOR Y-EARS.. 1800 HAVE BEEN SHOT IN with the year only half over….. YOU GOT THAT?

      1800 PEOPLE SHOT, 99% OF THESE SHOOTINGS ON THE WEST AND SOUTH SIDES. 2% OF THE VIOLENT CRIME CITYWIDE CAUCASIAN..

      What’s the problem ? Liberalism and gun control. Just outside the city limits people like me are legally armed up the waZooo, and in my town only 2 people have been killed in 25 years… GOT THAT? Mt Prospect IL, 25 years, 2 murders. 20 miles away 50 a week .. I know you people won’t believe it, so go choke on the stats yourselves…

      And prove to me what part of this statement is not anything but NON PC TRUTH? NOT one bit.. it’s all true, they’re sending criminals just like Castro, some are rapists, some are murderers, most are on public assistance, half are drug dealers working for the cartels, I know a half dozen in Chicago myself… and the part YOU MOPES LEAVE OFF: AND SOME ARE GOOD PEOPLE… BUT YOU IDIOTS NEVER INCLUDE THE LAST LINE..

      Every legal Latino I know and 2 of my immediate neighbors are Latinos, hate the ILLEGAL ALIENS AS MUCH AS WE DO, no matter where they come from..

      Pray we don’t win this election, or your decadent party is over… and you nimrods will have to work for a living for a change.
