Responses to suggestion that those who support the racist Trump are racist themselves

There was an article that laid out examples of Trumps racism, including of course the latest where he tells a group of minority group women to leave the country and go back "where they came from". 

The articles also says that if you continue to support Trump even after this racism you are racist yourself. 

How would Trump supporters respond?

Here is a sample


Just another serving of liberal spam

Sorry sunshine, but I am not obsessed with trying to find racism that doesn't exist,

How that came to mean a different country, as opposed to district, is your flawed perception at work - spring-loaded in the victim position.

And yet the President is correct.

The squad is crying on TV right now while Trump is making a country run.

He’s known for having a bad case of TDS.

Trump is not racist no matter how many times you allege it.

Quick question: What cities/States do they come from?

NOTHING to do with Race; it had to do with the "Non-American" names they bear.

Dumb bigot bitches need too clean their own local pig pens first.

she should be denounced daily until we get her out of Congress

Are You OK With A Racist President, Republicans?
Don't really consider myself a Rep or Dem but no, i'm not okay with it and since we don't have one, we are all set.



There was not a SINGLE comment on that article, from a Trump supporter that said Trump was wrong, that Trump is racist, or that they are no longer supporting Trump. Rather, the comments are full of doubling down and affirming Trump. 

People who want Trump gone have to realize that we are in a form of war.  Trump is not going to change, Trump supporters are not going to change, and the rest of us are called upon to defeat their candidates and their ideas.

This is basically why I object to any policy that does not allow us to criticize Trump supporters. To pretend that there is anything normal about supporting Donald Trump on topics like whether or not he is racist really does a disservice to our country.

You make ambiguous and false claims about Trump, all day, every day....and then expect everyone to agree with you. jrSmiley_78_smiley_image.gif

George Conway: Trump is a racist president

JULY 15, 2019

GIZOU6E7IQI6TA7DIX663DUNFY.jpg

To this day, I can remember almost the precise spot where it happened: a supermarket parking lot in eastern Massachusetts. It was the mid-1970s; I was not yet a teenager, or barely one. I don’t remember exactly what precipitated the woman’s ire. But I will never forget what she said to my mother, who had come to this country from the Philippines decades before. In these words or something close, the woman said, “Go back to your country.”

I remember the incident well, but it never bothered me all that much. Nor did racial slurs, which, thankfully, were rare. None of it was troublesome, to my mind, because most Americans weren’t like that. The woman in the parking lot was just a boor, an ignoramus, an aberration. America promised equality. Its constitution said so. My schoolbooks said so. The country wasn’t perfect, to be sure. But its ideals were. And every day brought us closer to those ideals.

To a young boy, it seemed like long ago that a descendant of slaves had prophesied, five days before I was born, that his “four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” We would be there soon enough, if we weren’t there already. I couldn’t understand why colleges required applicants to check boxes for race or ethnicity. I’m also part Irish and Scottish. What box should I check? Should I check one at all? Will that help me or hurt me? Never mind, not to worry, those boxes would someday soon be gone.

How naive a child could be. The woman in the parking lot — there were many more like her, it turned out. They never went away. Today they attend rallies, and they post ugliness on Facebook or Twitter. As for the victims of historic racial oppression, no matter how much affirmative action (or reverse discrimination, or whatever you want to call it) the nation offered, they, too, had resentments that never went away — in part because of people like the parking-lot woman. Those resentments often led to more, not fewer, charges of racism as the years passed — charges of institutional racism and “white privilege.”

Which, in turn, bred another kind of resentment: Why, asked many an unaffluent white parent, who may never have uttered a racial slur or whose ancestors may never have held anyone in bondage, does my child have to check a box to her detriment, or be accused of “white privilege,” when the only privilege she has received came from the sweat of my brow? Why are people like me being called racist, when all I’ve done was mind my own business?

And how naive an adult could be. The birther imaginings about Barack Obama? Just a silly conspiracy theory, latched onto by an attention seeker who has a peculiar penchant for them. The “Mexican” Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel incident? Asinine, inappropriate, a terrible attack on the judiciary by an egocentric man who imagined that the judge didn’t like him. The white supremacists’ march in Charlottesville? The president’s comments were absolutely idiotic, but he couldn’t possibly have been referring to those self-described Nazis as “good people”; in his sloppy, inarticulate way, he was referring to both sides of the debate over Civil War statues, and venting his anger about being criticized.

No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully — in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I gave still him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist. No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot.

But Sunday left no doubt. Naivete, resentment and outright racism, roiled in a toxic mix, have given us a racist president. Trump could have used vile slurs, including the vilest of them all, and the intent and effect would have been no less clear. Telling four non-white members of Congress — American citizens all, three natural-born — to “go back” to the “countries” they “originally came from”? That’s racist to the core. It doesn’t matter what these representatives are for or against — and there’s plenty to criticize them for — it’s beyond the bounds of human decency. For anyone, not least a president.

What’s just as bad, though, is the virtual silence from Republican leaders and officeholders. They’re silent not because they agree with Trump. Surely they know better. They’re silent because, knowing that he’s incorrigible, they have inured themselves to his wild statements; because, knowing that he’s a fool, they don’t really take his words seriously and pretend that others shouldn’t, either; because, knowing how damaging Trump’s words are, the Republicans don’t want to give succor to their political enemies; because, knowing how vindictive, stubborn and obtusely self-destructive Trump is, they fear his wrath.

But none of that is good enough. Trump is not some random, embittered person in a parking lot — he’s the president of the United States. By virtue of his office, he speaks for the country. What’s at stake now is more important than judges or tax cuts or regulations or any policy issue of the day. What’s at stake are the nation’s ideals, its very soul.

Republicans Defend Trump Ahead of Vote to Condemn Tweets

HOUSE REPUBLICAN leadership came to President Donald Trump's defense on Tuesday as the Democratic-led House prepares to vote on a resolution condemning the president's tweets aimed at four Democratic congresswomen as "racist."

"I believe this is about ideology, this is about socialism vs. freedom," McCarthy said. "This is all about politics and beliefs of ideologies individuals have."

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming echoed the sentiment, saying that the criticism of the four Democratic congresswomen doesn't have to with identity, race or religion.

"I want to make absolutely clear that our opposition to our socialist colleagues has absolutely nothing to do with their gender, with their religion or with their race," Cheney said. "It has to do with the content of their policies."

House GOP leaders defend Trump's racist attack on lawmakers

Updated 4:13 PM ET, Tue July 16, 2019

(CNN) - Leaders of the Republican Party in Congress on Tuesday came to the defense of President Donald Trump amid an intense backlash to racist comments from the President suggesting that four Democratic congresswomen of color should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

"The President's not a racist," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon on Capitol Hill, responding to a question if Trump's comments were racist.

http://m.cnn.com/en/article/h_daa10a873e84f122cc749085229bce78

Scalise suggested that House Democrats have treated Trump worse than how House Republicans treated President Barack Obama, in part based on a growing swath of Democrats who advocate for opening an impeachment inquiry into Trump.

"As [Cheney] laid out, there a lot of policies that we had disagreements on with Speaker Pelosi and her socialist Democrats, just like we had disagreements with a lot of Barack Obama's policies," Scalise said. "But we never disrespected the office. I called him president of the United States, as we all did."

You don't like Trump. That's fine. You don't have to.

You're mad because other people don't hate him as much you do. Why be mad? Does everyone have to agree with you?

Here's the real problem with all these seeds. Beyond the observations I just made, you have no point. What would you like everyone to do about it? Change our minds because you're just sooooo mad?? That's not realistic.

We have a solution, you know. It's called an election. We're getting ready to have one next year. If you want to see people take action you like, then point them at a superior candidate. Otherwise, you're just going to have to live with another 5 years of President Trump.

Trump thinks excessive government regulations hold back our economy from being as strong as it can be. If I agree with that, am I racist? Trump thinks a series of ill-advised economic treaties have put our country at a disadvantage in international trade. If I agree with that am I racist?

I don't care if N E body agrees with some of his idiotic policies, it does not give them an excuse to give the POS POTUS a pass on his blatant racism, blatant criminality, and blatant abuse of power,

Now you want to garner permission to launch Personal Attacks against anyone who dares to have a differing opinion than yours and again are surprised when people tell you (in the nicest way possible of course) to again go fuck yourself.

Frankly, this garbage truck fire started rolling down hill the day Trump lied and said he had private investigators in Hawaii investigating President Obama's birth certificate. In and of itself it showed he was racist, a liar and unbelievably incompetent. (The state of Hawaii had already by then officially announced that the birth certificate was safe and sound in the state archives and had been personally inspected by Hawaii health dept officials. ) Trump was humiliated by that episode, and but for one thing his career in politics would have been over. That one thing?  The existence of the "deplorables", a group waiting for a "hero", whether or not he was a lying pos.

I prefer to be a deplorable than a progressive ANTIFA asswipe.

CK- I will pay you not to do that. JR isn't worth it, and any proof he offers will be from a site or organization that is so left leaning it would make Putin blanch.

Seriously, going to need industrial strength clorox bleach to try and wipe that thought from my mind. Thankfully wasn't eating when I read it.

Do people who support Trump get called racists for any other reason than they support Trump?

Does that mean that if you support any politician, you become what the opposite side sees as the worst in that politician?

Here is my response to a similar asked question

non- opposition to Trump is support for Trump.
Speaking of absurd. Out of curiosity is this bizarre attempt to disallow indifference universal or just Trump related? 

When you see an incompetence of the tremendous gargantuan proportions that Trump has displayed, when you see a serial liar setting the Truth meter on fire, an adoration who can adore and hold himself no higher, tweet out policy confused with collusion to conspire against all he dowst desire to end and expire, because he can't hide his guilt torturing his inside, as he feigns over the little mind fuck who placed him where he sits, throws the kitchen sink at all walls that Mexico will build and pay for, while paying off our multi trillion China debt, just for good measure, do you ever not see that one who has played so many with his lies that stretch further than an elastic band can be elongated without snapping back and eyeballing an eye socket currently conducive with the 'best and the brightest' he said he would surround himself with, well, until they called him a 'fucken idiot', resigned in disgrace for abusing their offices they were most likely the least likely qualified to oversee, and were closer to the antithesis of a truly qualified appointtee with an errant moral compass arrow, shot into an ethical barrel of fish food, starving for thought, as

Trumps' incessant withchunt tweets, hoax, fake news assertions lobbed at one, that both agreed was a good choice to investigate alleged allegations, that has had hundreds of charges brought, concluded some convictions sought, multiple indictments, and an unforeseen amount of yet to be divulged further findings, being professionally handled by an adult, that any innocent Pol would welcome as to clear their name if that were a true claim, has by many, already convicted himself of obstruction, but because those that prefer Trumps Lies over and over, instead of what's real, and cannot admit they were taken, our Country has lost its moral high ground and has begun to concede its world leadership status, and unfortunately, rightfully so.

How can NATO and or any of our Allies not be concerned about his always lying, while insulting our most adamant supporters, he praises tyrants, he has been unable to say a negative word about Putin, while all the while attempting to reduce, and or drag feet, in even implementing the sanctions he was forced to bring about, after completely insulting intelligence, and our intelligence agencies by publically, side by side, asserting Putin's denial was all he needed to know Putin wasn't involved, in 'rigging' the election Trump swore was rigged.

yea, why should those who fail to see this behavior as nothing wrong, need to oppose

such a role model, that all of our children should be coerced to emulate, going on 10,000 lies, whatever could be wrong with accepting this, as opposed to calling it out for what it is ?

Think on that Jack.

Americans have not a duty to hold our highest elected official, to standards we ourselves could never accept from our own family members ?

I'd dismember them, but you are failing in your duty as an American Citizen, and that is just my humble opinion, 

that i, at this point in this beyond comedic joke, will not relinquish.

So many fought and died, lost life and limb, for an unstable inferior insecure little man,

to desecrate their sacrifices, is just plain UN AMERICAN  again, just my opine

Okay, just so long as it is CONSISTENT even when that shit is directed at you or who you support.

To be clear then, those Democrats who stood idly by while other Democrats passed Jim Crow laws and supported slavery are just as guilty as the ones who actually did it. 

Cool. Might come in handy in future debates, just as long as you don't try to change the rules later.

From the EEOC:

Harassment Based on National Origin
Ethnic slurs or other verbal or physical conduct because of national origin are illegal if they are severe or pervasive and create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment, interfere with work performance, or negatively affect job opportunities. Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's accent or comments like, "Go back to where you came from," whether made by supervisors or by co-workers.

(Bolding mine)

What did Donald Trump say?

"Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.:"

Hmm, sounds racist to me.

You do know that all 4 were elected in districts outside of Washington, DC right? 

AOC's district would love to see her.  They don't seem to feel she is representing their best interests.

Out of curiosity, John, does agreeing with his policies and actions concerning Israel, while being angry about his trade policies (both NAFTA and China) that force me to spend more of my meagre pension than before, and really not caring about anything else about him because I'm not an American anyway STILL mean, in your eyes that I am a Trump supporter?

Yes.

If you agree with Trump on anything, then you are to be forever branded as a Trump supporter, and more importantly, a racist.

That's just common sense, Democrat-style.

 It’s the kind of political positioning  that would ultimately result in a bloody Civil War because these people have worked themselves into such a delusional frenzy about Trump that they have nowhere else to go with their hatred.

It seems to me to be the byproduct of a diseased mind.

You are a Trump supporter, because you have often taken his side without even knowing the details of what the particular fuss at the time was about.

Well, maybe so, because you see, you and I are very different. First of all, I believe that an anthem and a flag represent a country, not a temporary government - I respect them and it pains me to see a flag burning and a person disrespecting their country's anthem.  As well, because of my training, which you never had, I believe one should always consider both sides of a story, not be totally obsessed by one and not even look at the other.  Sometimes I just enjoy playing Devil's Advocate, sometimes just to tease you since you take it so seriously. But I can understand YOUR side of the story, that you feel Trump is not fit to be POTUS, and that he is disrespected throughout most of the world due to his many traits and personality, but he happens to be YOUR POTUS, like it or not, and he isn't mine.  Frankly, from what I'm seeing, I think he'll be your POTUS for a second term as well, so save your strength and your sensibility because you are a valuable member of NT and we wouldn't want to lose you.

I am not a twit, so I don't use Twitter.  However, I watch the news.

On the other hand, I am glad you do not like his racism.  I am shocked at how many people are still so racist!

Don't expand in your mind or imply things I did not say.  As for myself, being a Caucasian happily married for more than a decade to a Chinese woman, living comfortably among her people, I really don't consider myself to be a racist.
