FTFA: "When Donald Trump talks about us and our heritage he's only speaking to one audience, and that audience then starts to view others who are fellow Americans as somehow the enemy."

So what is the heritage of the enemy? I suppose that includes my heritage, and since I'm a good American I don't place much value in the DNA in my blood or the land my ancestors came from. I relate most to the heritage of my 1-102 IN, and we trace our lineage to the 2nd and 20th Connecticut Volunteers. Those men mustered out to fight traitors that took up arms against our Union. It is an absolute disgrace that the President of the United States has aligned himself against the true patriots that defended this nation in order to bark for a Neo-Nazi carnival.

It was awesome. Once I left there, I will say I missed that and the pool table. It's a shame they moved from Manchester to Middletown. I didn't deploy with them, but I did go to Iraq for OIF II with the 1/103rd FA out of RI. Who was originally the 1st RI Light Field Artillery, and they fought at Gettysburg. I have Union military heritage from multiple fronts.

Depends largely on what era America you are talking about.

During the start colonial, puritans and other extreme Protestant shunned from Europe were the "originals"

During the revolutionary  times, it was largely White Anglo Saxons Protestant from England/Whales. Scotland, Irish and Catholic/Jews were not wanted.

During the early 1900s, Eastern European and Mediterranean states were looked down upon. Mainly Jews and Catholics again.

WWII saw the softening between the Europeans discrimination. Especially against the Jews after the Holocaust was found out.

Sometime in the 50s, the Southwest started to turn its back on the Mexicans, (white migration from the east, its to blame) whereas it used to be a benifits if you were from an old founding family.

Now it's clear that anyone from Africa or the Middle East/certain pacific rim territories are suspect, as well as our neighbors from the south.

We're all very different people. We're not Watusi. We're not Spartans. We're Americans, with a capital 'A', huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts! Here's proof: his nose is cold!

Barking for a Neo-Nazi carnival. Beautiful analogy, if terrifying.

And for a long time from late 1940s until, apparently, mid-2016, Russkies were looked upon as the eternal enemies.

Classy that he's doing it on a Friday evening as a major natural disaster is unfolding.

I guess hispanic outreach is over.

At least he's focused on what's important. Of course that's appealing to his neo-nazi base, not the deadly hurricane or North Korean missiles.

you are 100% wrong.
The will outreach to hispanics and detain, kill or deport every brown person in the hurricane's path that seeks shelter.
why the fark wouldn't they?if they get in trouble Trump will pardon them in the name of making america great again.

And yet, 29% of Latinos voted for Trump.

Don't understand that.  Then again, a fair number of Muslims were retarded enough to vote for Trump (And I'll say this; if you're Muslim and a Trump voter, you are retarded).  So many morons just excusing his attacks on them because he also attacked something else they hated.

cookiefleck: Arpaio


Joe Arpaio
Sam Clovis
Alex Jones

They're all designed to just make Mike Pence seem more like Rick Perry seemed 8 years ago. On the WTF end of sane. But Pence is just WTF batshiat evangelical crazy. So what does that make Trump and Friends? We have no words for this kind of insanity.

This is all just desensitization. Prepare for him firing Mueller. He is going to light the White House on fire, and it doesn't matter if there's impeachment or not, he's gonna do it. At this point it's clear he does not want to grow his base. He wants to cater to racists. The president of the United States is a bigot, and he's protecting ignorant bigots who think like him.

To be fair, it makes more sense for Latinos than Muslims. A lot of them self-identify as white and have as much problem with "foreigners" and illegals as the rest of the Trump base.

Of course, it's probably best for them not to think about what the rest of the Trump base actually thinks of THEM.

Remember this?
In a new poll, half of Republicans say they would support postponing the 2020 election if Trump proposed it

While we can lead the witness, and get a lot of people to agree to a weird poll question, we have two things happening at the same time. A big president, who is a weak autocrat, who is getting stronger. And this Tonka Toy shiat is just 8 months in. No matter what Trump is going to incite some sort of violent stupidity. Bank on it.

He can completely reneg on the wall, he could even go open borders, and turn his curren psycho base into a bunch of farking unabombers. And then declare martial law, postpone the election.

Or he can pardon the lawless. Maybe some sheriff shoots a trans, or a Muslim in the head on main street in Podunk, or even in Chicago, for saying "go fark yourself, pig" and Trump pardons the crooked officer.

Trump literally has both sides by the balls. Anyone who thinks institutions will get us out of this mess, is delusional.

Can you guys imagine what the hell our kids classes are going to be like when they cover American presidents? You just know there's going to be that one kid who will choose to report on Trump and will use it as an opportunity to either be a racist dickhead or troll the hell out of the teacher.

I am so far past the point of seeing the humor in any of this. Instead, I feel like I'm in a constant state of rage. I refuse to stop being outraged because nothing this asshole does is normal. Or right.

29%. 27%. 30%. Hoover approval... Bush approval... Nixon approval... Latinos voting Trump...

Trump has reminded me of my old boss, from the way he acts, treats people and says "Trust me" and "Believe me". I didn't believe my sleazy SOB boss and I sure as shiat don't believe this SOB POTUS.

As Derek Black, the son of the founder of white supremacist website Stormfront, pointed out in a New York Times op-ed this week, few Americans would justify marching down the streets of a U.S. city brandishing a swastika flag, but many more feel comfortable lamenting what they are being told is the erasure of U.S. history.
"My dad often gave me the advice that white nationalists are not looking to recruit people on the fringes of American culture, but rather the people who start a sentence by saying, 'I'm not racist, but ...'," Black, who has disavowed the movement, wrote of his father, Don. "The most effective tactics for white nationalists are to associate American history with themselves and to suggest that the collective efforts to turn away from our white supremacist past are the same as abandoning American culture."

I see he has been lurking on Fark...

I got into this with someone else in a thread a while ago; just because they're bald or shave their heads doesn't make them "skinheads" in the sub-cultural sense. Those guys actually have a sort of code of music and dress that they adhere to.
But that scene always makes me laugh.

I'm starting to think 30% of every group of people are functional morons. Like, they function in society well enough to dress and feed themselves but they lack any critical thinking skills and are deeply attracted to derp.
