Our Racist POTUS Repeats a Racist Myth, Basically Allowing Racist FOX News To Steer Our Dialogue

Quote:
Trust President Trump, following his familiar tactic of deflecting attention from yet another scandal by issuing some outrageous tweet, to come down hard on the wrong side of an issue he knows nothing about, based on no more than a slanted Fox News program. In a late-Wednesday tweet, Mr. Trump said he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to look into land seizures and the “large-scale killing of farmers” in South Africa. It was the first time he has mentioned Africa by name in a tweet as president.

His source was a grossly one-sided report by the Fox host Tucker Carlson asserting that the South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, was seizing land from his citizens because they are the wrong “skin color.” There have been no large-scale killings of white farmers, and Mr. Ramaphosa’s proposal to change the Constitution to allow expropriation of land without compensation has not yet passed. That said, the issue does deserve a close look.

Well they have a point. If we all went to our ancestral homes, we'd all end up in Africa.

Sen. Bob Corker, who called the White House an adult day care center, cannot bring himself to call Trump and his white nationalist supporters racists.

Trump voters have always known Trump is racist and still vote Trump. But don't call them racist either. Might hurt their feelings.

Well to varying levels they are all racists themselves so there's that. I feel at this point we can confidently say all Trump supporters are racists. The ones I know certainly are. They may not be the bad guy let's go kill us some blacks racists, but they definitely are racists. More so against Muslims and Mexicans although I don't think they realize Muslim isn't a race.
