Actual Sh**holes Would Improve 6 African Nations

Here’s what Trump was talking about…

EDITOR’S NOTE: This article contains profanity.

(Headline Health) In a 2016 interview with US magazine, the President of the United States described the African nation of Libya as a “shit show” …

The next day, the Barack Obama’s obscene remarks received no mention from the New York Times, Washington Post, or CNN.

United Nations members did not issue hysterical statements demanding an emergency session to sanction the potty-mouthed president.

And no one called Obama a ‘racist’ over his scatalogical characterization of an African nation …

Last week, Donald Trump reportedly called African nations that send migrants to the United States ‘shithole countries.’

Trump’s comments made no mention whatsoever of race.

Yet the mainstream media and nations that look to the United Nations for power and protection immediately called him a racist and demanded various sanctions against Trump and the United States.

If not race, what was Donald Trump talking about?

  • There are 21 nations in the world where a man’s life expectancy is less than 60 years. All of them are in Africa.
  • There are 8 nations in the world where ten percent or more of the population has HIV/AIDS. All of them are in Africa.
  • There are 30 nations in the world listed as ‘high burden’ for tuberculosis. The majority of them are in Africa.
  • There are 7 nations in the world where 25 percent or more of the population practices open defecation. Six of them are in Africa; having ‘shitholes’ would actually be an improvement.

Of the seven nations in the world were at least a quarter of the population practices open defecation, six are in Africa. IMAGE: Wikipedia.

UPDATE: CNN has reported that South Africa will issue a diplomatic protest to the United States today (1/15/2018)  over US President Donald Trump’s “shithole countries” comments, according to its foreign ministry.

  • Harvey Mitterdorf

    Anyone who complains but who did not say anything about Obama’s comment should just be ignored. There complaint has no merit.

    • RealAmerican407

      Double standards are the ONLY standards the left has.

    • Somanywhiners

      They forget about Obama’s exact words quickly, they live externally with President Trump’s. Let them go crazy with that rattling around in their brains.

  • regulus30

    Chuckie Schumer was whining today about Trump wanting more “white intelligent” immigrants from Scandinavia ; who give schumer the right to say who can come here or not;; oh, yeah I forgot democraps want illiterate low skilled undocumented voters.

    • Jackalyn Morrison

      Amen

      • regulus30

        We have 500,000 high tech jobs the millennials are too stupid to fill; America needs the top brains of all nations to come here to off set the stupidity of our liberal college grads with degrees in fields where there is no existing profession.

    • Somanywhiners

      Schumer is deaf because President Trump has been repeatedly say “merit-based’ immigration. Nothing about race!

      • Bobby johnson

        Except in this case, when he called people brown countries s***holes and said he would rather people from majority white countries like Norway.
        Sounds more like skin color than merit.

        • SiiRobertson

          Dark skinned people are the lowest IQ. Why would we want them?

          • Somanywhiners

            This is not quite correct; they may have high IQ’s, I don’t know their IQ. But, they are poorly educated. IQ and education are two different things.

          • Murphmeister

            As a person who believes in genetic anthropology, I can’t agree with that statement. But as someone who believes in cultural anthropology, history and culture studies show that some cultures are clearly superior to others, just as some individuals are clearly superior to others.

          • kimbi

            Street poopers.
            They don’t belong here. America can’t take in every person on the planet. This has to stop.

          • julie kemp

            Not true. Shame on you!!. Your a racist, not Trump

          • Bobby johnson

            There is no real way to measure IQ. You sound pretty racist.

          • George Clark

            I follow you but can’t up vote on Prb or Detroit a few others.

        • Francisco Machado

          the Democrats insist upon diversity. Wouldn’t that mean we’d have to lower the percentage of Blacks and Hispanics admitted until it matched the percentages of other races?

          • Bobby johnson

            I’m not sure it means that at all, considering white is still the majority.

        • Somanywhiners

          If you take the conversation out of context or listen to “FAKE NEWS”, President Trump is always portrayed as racist, but in truth he did not care about skin color, he cared about merit. People in Norway are educated in areas that are needed in the US and the other countries President Trump was talking about are sending over very poorly educated individuals.

          • Bobby johnson

            The stupidity in your comment is, no country is actually sending over anyone.
            …and the merit he cares about, especially when it comes to people of color is who can make him look good.
            He was sued by the DOJ for racism.

          • Somanywhiners

            You really are brain dead if you believe this nonsense. Go away you are no good (for this country). But, you are an excellent example of a brainless idiot who has open mouth and stuck foot in it.

          • Bobby johnson

            Lmao! Look who’s whining now.

          • Carmella

            Agreed.

          • Bobby johnson

            Lmao!

          • Murphmeister

            The DOJ sues a lot of people and sometimes the DOJ loses. When the DOJ goes after Hillary and Bill, you’ll be railing about the DOJ.

          • Bobby johnson

            In this case, the DOJ sued trump for racist practices. If and that’s a big if! If the they go after the Clinton’s, I really wouldn’t care. They’re old news.
            Nice projection though.

          • Murphmeister

            Ah, the cavalier shield. I don’t care.

          • Bobby johnson

            Do you have anymore comments that bare no merit?

          • Naval Lint

            That would be “bear”, not “bare”…you must be a college snowflake. Hiding in your safe space, little boy?

          • Bobby johnson

            So the answer is no then?

          • kimbi

            TRUMP is the one that, when he bought Mar-A-Lago, sued to be allowed to permit Blacks and Jews to join. So get outta here with ur garbage.

          • Bobby johnson

            All to improve his image. Nothing more.

          • Bernie

            Bobby,
            Anything wrong with improving ones image?

          • Bobby johnson

            Bernie.
            Not At all, but this particular leopard can’t change it’s spots.

          • Bernie

            Bobby,
            The real spots are on the left.
            I’m a person of color from the South Side of Chicago.
            I’ll take you on a tour. You’ll see the real racism that exists here. Democrats have been running the situation here for 70 years. They’re nothing but phonies. They preach to a naive populace. “Vote for me. I’ll make you happy. Obama is great. I’m going to get some of his stash”.
            There’s the real racism.
            Now, hop in your Prius and run back to your lily White neighborhood and tell all your friends what a caring and wonderful person you are.

          • Bobby johnson

            You being a person of color in Chicago nor the left, doesn’t negate the fact that trump is racist and a coward. It runs in the family.
            His words and his history prove this.
            You can deflect with the left all you want, but these are facts.

          • Bernie

            Blacks have been hurt by democrats and their policies more than any so-called “racist” could ever hope to dream of, you fool.

          • Bobby johnson

            Their lives haven’t been improved by conservatives either.

          • regulus30

            That is because dumocrpas give them free food, free phones, free education free this free that;; liberals have single handedly destroyed the self respect and initiative of an entire race; why WORK when you get paid to not work? How can a black kid attend twelve [12] years of public school and get passed by reading a the third grade level; another waste of tax dollars.

          • Bobby johnson

            So you’re saying all black people get free stuff and don’t work?

          • Bernie

            You are such a simpleton. There hasn’t been a conservative republican there in seven decades. But somehow it’s republican’s fault!
            I’m laughing…I’m laughing some more….
            Keep trying, you fool…

          • Bobby johnson

            Cute! You’re talking about Chicago. I’m saying in general.
            Anything else?

          • Bernie

            Ahhhh, so you agree when you say “either”.
            Told you the democrats are a bunch of phonies.
            Thanks for proving my point.
            You make this so easy!!!!

          • Bernie

            Oh Bobby,
            I must admit, You’re right. I WAS only taking about Chicago. I forgot Detroit, Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Oakland, Milwaukee, Cleveland, St. Louis, (Ferguson), Portland…..
            My bad!

          • Bobby johnson

            Good for you and I’m still saying black people lives haven’t gotten any better under Republicans.

          • Bernie

            No, you said “Black lives haven’t gotten any better under republicans, EITHER”.
            Anyway, why hasn’t Black lives gotten any better?
            Failing schools in inner cities run by democrats?
            False promises made by democrats every 2 and 4 years?
            Democrat welfare programs?
            Come on, Bobby. Let me take you on a tour of democrat controlled enclaves. Let me show you what the left-wing White supremacists along with their phony enablers like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson have created. Then you can run back to your lily White, left wing neighborhood.

          • Bobby johnson

            Perhaps I did say either. The truth is, black lives haven’t gotten any better under Republicans.

          • Bernie

            Talk about a racist statement.
            You’re implying that us people of color need to rely on others (politicians) to improve our lives.
            You’ll wait all day. Maybe that’s your problem!

          • Bobby johnson

            No, that’s your argument. I never implied that, nor is that something I believe.
            Project that crap somewhere else.

          • Larry Huff

            Uncle, you are a fool. You side with a pack of racists who want you dead. You are truly a fool.

          • Bernie

            Oh Larry,
            You’re the fool. The real racists are on the left.
            We’re told by them to “vote for us. You poor people of color can’t make it without us. We’ll make you happy. You NEED us”.
            Yep, we can’t think for ourselves. That’s what we’ve been told for decades.
            Yes, you’re the fool.

          • Myster Bill

            Bobby, Bobby, Bobby…way to personal. Here’s a shocker. Racist numbers are lower than ever. Racism used as a crutch or excuse is at an all tiime high.

          • Bobby johnson

            Racist incidents have increased since trump took office.
            Before he took office as well.

          • Bobby johnson

            That’s all fine and dandy, but what does any of that rhetoric have to do with trump?
            If you don’t know what deflection means, I suggest you look it up.

          • Bernie

            Just letting you know where the real racism comes from.
            Not from Trump, loser.

          • Bobby johnson

            You don’t determine what’s real, dingus. Trump is racist. You can deflect with Democrats all you want. Doesn’t change anything.

          • Bernie

            Oh my, calling a
            person of color names like “dingus”?
            OK, you’re a racist for using that term.
            See……Told you who the real racists are.
            Told you who the phonies are!

          • Bobby johnson

            Listen dingus. I’m African American with a pinch of asian and Pacific islander. Don’t play the race card with me, chump.

          • Bernie

            Bobby,
            You’re not smart enough to be African American,
            You’re too blind to see what’s happening around you.
            Read Jason Riley’s “Please Stop Helping Us”.
            I see you don’t want me playing the race card. Isn’t that what phony democrats do all day, every day?
            Tell that to all your democrat friends and politicians.

          • Bobby johnson

            Once again, projection.
            I’ll give a little clue. Just because I’m anti trump and republican, doesn’t necessarily mean I’m a Democrat…lol!

          • Bernie

            You’re as democrat as can be. Either that, or a socialist.
            Do I have that correct, phony?

          • Bobby johnson

            Not even close, dingus.

          • Bernie

            “Fungus”.
            Wow. That’s a good one.
            Sounds like your shorts are in a knot.
            Is that foam accumulating at the corners of you mouth?
            Calm down. You’ll live longer.
            Something I said??

          • Bobby johnson

            Lmao! I edited it to dingus. You’re annoying, but I wouldn’t necessarily call you a fungus.

          • Bernie

            You’re laughing your asss off?? How infantile of you.
            And I’m annoying, huhhh ?
            A sign of something hitting a nerve.
            Maybe you’re unhappy that you didn’t take advantage of the market.
            Maybe you’re unhappy a president is finally trying to secure the border.
            Maybe you’re unhappy that Apple is repatriating 250 billion dollars back to the States….along with other major corporations.
            Maybe you’re unhappy that North and South Korea are talking.
            Maybe you’re unhappy that Black employment and home ownership is up,
            Maybe you’re unhappy that Trump Is in excellent health.
            Tell me loser, exactly what are you so unhappy about?
            I thought it was a pretty good year. Don’t you?

          • Bobby johnson

            You being annoying isn’t indicative of my being unhappy.
            Your arbitrary comments make you annoying.

          • Bernie

            YOU think my comments are annoying because you’ve been made to look like a fool.
            Now it’s my turn to laugh my asssss off.

          • Bobby johnson

            Lmao! You’re the one foolish enough to deflect with Anti-lib rhetoric.

          • Bernie

            Weak Bobby….
            Very weak.
            You can do better than that…

          • Bobby johnson

            Truth hurts doesn’t it. Lol!

          • Bernie

            That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you. A conservative person of color just galls the shittt out of you.
            And I can tell by that silly little laugh of yours.

          • Bobby johnson

            There you go assuming again. I couldn’t care less that you’re colored or conservative. I have serious doubts that you really are POC.
            Just a reminder. This whole conversation you’ve deflected, made disparaging remarks and you tried to sound condescending…
            My comments upset you. That’s why you’re still commenting.
            You’re triggered and I’m laughing at you because you keep projecting your feels into this.

          • Bernie

            One day you’ll wake up just as I did.
            Till then, keep waiting for someone to justify your beliefs. And keep believing the phoniness of democrats.
            Bye….

          • Bobby johnson

            I don’t need justification or validation. Buh bye!

          • Bernie

            Of course you don’t need justification. You’ve been blindsided by dems for decades.

          • Bobby johnson

            Jeez, I thought you were leaving.
            More projection, even. Just can’t let go of the anti lib/democrat rhetoric, can you?
            Stay woke…lmao!

          • Bernie

            You should be anti-lib/democrat, also.
            After all, they now want to legalize illegals that will suppress wages and steal jobs from our community.
            Your turn…

          • Bobby johnson

            There is no indication that deporting illegals will suddenly encourage wage growth. Besides, most illegals do the jobs that most Americans won’t. The agriculture and dairy industries are suffering because of trump, right now.

          • Bernie

            You’re right. My fellow Blacks will not do those jobs.
            Oh, and dems want to have people from those shithollls to come here so they can put more people on welfare.

          • Bobby johnson

            You aren’t black and Dems don’t want illegals here just so they can give them welfare.
            Stay woke, though! You’re doing a great job.

          • Bernie

            I’m not Black? Why?
            Because I don’t think and believe like you? I guess you can say the same for Larry Elder. Or Ben Carson. Or Walt Williams. Or Jason Riley. Or Clarence Thomas. Or Mia Love. Or Tim Scott.
            You are one sag human!

          • Bobby johnson

            Well no.
            Actually, its because you originally called yourself a POC. Black people, conservative or liberal are proud to call themselves black or AA.
            Second, you said black people wouldn’t do agricultural or dairy industry jobs. Why would you single out black people when I said most americans? Seems like you’re suggesting black people should go pick fruit and veggies. Those jobs pay slave wages. No black person would suggest to another to go work for slave wages.
            Btw, you’re not any of those people you mentioned. They’re obviously black and as a matter of fact. Mila love, thinks trumps comments were racist as well.
            Lastly, I never said anyone should believe what I believe. You’re the one suggesting I be like you, but you haven’t made a compelling argument to consider.

          • Bernie

            I get it. Only certain people should work for what you deem “slave wages”.

          • Bobby johnson

            No, you don’t get it at all.

          • Bernie

            Oh I get it alright, Bobby.
            Your party is more concerned about “dreamers” (whatever that means) than our military, police, fire or South Side Chicago residents.
            Wake the fvck up!

          • Bobby johnson

            No, you still don’t get. Republicants went against the party, as well.
            I doubt if “my” party cares any less about cops, fire, military or Chicagoans.
            That’s what’s on the table and republicants are holding dreamers & CHP hostage.You go ahead and stay woke though.

          • Brnir

            Oh Bobby, you make this so easy.
            There are democrats that will vote “yes” to the current proposal to keep the government running, also.
            About holding dreamers hostage, dreamers are a total separate issue on the table and should have nothing to do with keeping the government running.
            It’s dems that are holding dreamers hostage. By the way, how do you define dreamer?

          • Bobby johnson

            You really need to either pay attention or stay out of the conversation.
            No one was talking about the separate bill to avoid a shut down.

          • Bernie

            OK,
            Then way ARE you unhappy?

          • Bobby johnson

            What?

          • Bernie

            Give me three reasons you’re anti-Trump.

          • Bobby johnson

            Don’t need to. All you need to know is I’m anti trump.

          • Bernie

            Awww, Bobby.
            You mean you have no idea why you’re anti-Trymp.

          • Bobby johnson

            What is a trymp? A new word for trump followers?
            That isn’t what that means, at all.
            I just feel the need to explain myself to the likes of you.

          • Bernie

            To the likes of me??
            What is the “likes of me”?
            A person of color that doesn’t fit your idea of what I SHOULD be?
            How sad of you….

          • Bobby johnson

            Once again, projection. I never said anything about how a person of color should be. You’re the one assuming here.

          • Larry Huff

            The likes of YOU is an Uncle Tom.

          • Bernie

            Larry,
            You make this so easy.
            Was I an “Uncle Tom” when I was toeing the line of the South Side White Chicago democrats,
            or now?
            To you left-wing fools, everything is race. I learned that a long time ago.
            While we’re at it, define “Uncle Tom”.

          • Larry Huff

            You were ALWAYS an Uncle Tom. You want approval by whitey because you think you will get more opportunities and free stuff. These vile, America hating racists will NEVER accept you and will try to kill you at the first chance they get.

            For now they will say that you are “one of the good ones”. You are truly a moron and a fool.

          • Bernie

            Oh Larry,
            How sad. “I was ALWAYS an Uncle Tom”.
            So what you’re saying is that the Left-wing White supremacists were also controlling me. I wasn’t smart enough to think for myself. As a matter of fact, I’m hearing you say that even YOU know what’s best for me. Besides, you’re calling a man of color a “moron”.
            My, my….talk about racism!
            Thanks for proving my point, jack wagon.

          • aveteran2

            Bobby does you family own the Ho Jos Hotel chain too?

            Why not start by improving your liberal democratic brain dead gullible image for a change. Obama was the biggest racist President in the White House. Did he really care about black people? No, he only cared about their votes! You just can fanthom the truth, now can you?

          • Bobby johnson

            No, Obama wasn’t the “real” racist and most black people knew if he tried to do anything for them, it would be met with some serious resistance from conservatives.
            So, Now you have trump appealing to black voters and now suddenly helping black people is ok.

            Doing the right thing will improve anyone’s image but at that time, Mr.Trump didn’t need to improve his image. The man is extremely intelligent, wealthy and has more friends and family that love and support him for himself. As PRESIDENT TRUMP, he obviously has many, MANY people who support, respect and admire him and the fact that he allegedly called countries an ugly name in a closed door meeting (which is closed for a reason, its not for public consumption) will not change that support. Most of the indignation comes from people who have to feel like a victim to justify their bad behavior, they have an ulterior motive in the political world or they crave the attention they get when people think someone has been done wrong.

            The Democrats don’t really care about Haiti and the other African countries. They only use it to bad mouth Trump. Any speck they can find. Hillary gave Haiti a minute help from her foundation and that help came in the form of awarding contracts to donors of her foundation. Her foundation NEEDs investigating.
            I want a STRONGER Republican party. They are not pushing back in support of the President like they should. Lying Democrats and weak Republicans is not a good thing.

          • Hopeful

            You know, most of White America that immigrated here in the 1930’s-1950’s were not highly educated or skilled. They were the huddled masses, escaping the Potato Famine of Ireland for instance. Most people who want to leave their countries and families is to get a better opportunity. That is no different for people now from less fortunate countries. No one asked to be born or got to pick their circumstances they were born into. Maybe the Far Right should remember the incredible privilege we were born into as Americans due to no merit of ours. I think this merit thing is a bit much and a cover for a racist agenda. We also need to address our lack of the right skills and education instead of looking to import people with it. Where is a real agenda to address the gapping deficit we have versus other nations in terms of science, technology, mathematics and engineering. If we don’t do that soon we will lose our country’s competitive advantage. Another issue here is that Trump needs to watch what he says. I am sick and tired of people trying to clean up his messes all because he can’t control that mouth of his. It is never appropriate to refer to other nations in that manner. I don’t care what he meant. It matters how you say it. We waste too much time cleaning up after a man who can’t control his tongue. The Bible has a whole lot to say about the foolishness of people who can’t control their mouth and the devastation that causes.

          • Somanywhiners

            Maybe the left should remember that for that time period there was a near equal education level to the people that were already in the US. And the people coming over were willing to learn English and US customs.

            Infact the people coming over that had children were told they were hurting the children if they didn’t speak English in the home. That certainly made everyone learn English.

          • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

            Exactly, they wanted to be americans, not irish-americans or german-americans or mexican-americans or african-americans, just plain americans.

          • sweetolbob

            And, they wanted to SHARE in the bounties of America, not just be given them because they demanded it.

          • Hopeful

            I am not on the Left, wrong assumption. I’m Center- Right, and you are making a generalization that is not true. There were and still are plenty of people that came over and have come over from Italy, Poland, etc. that don’t speak a lick of English. Never have and never will. A friend of mine from Poland cousin came over in her teens and after 20 years still doesn’t speak English. She lives out her life in “Little Poland” where she doesn’t need to speak English. People should stop generalizing that only Hispanics don’t learn the language when there are those from Europe that don’t bother to do so either. I don’t hear anyone on the Far Right ranting and raving about that. Also, I have never met someone from Africa or Haiti that has come to the US that doesn’t speak English well.

          • Somanywhiners

            You are NOT center-right, you are a left,progressive deal with your inner-demons and do not live in pipe-dreams anymore. You are lost in a fantasy world. Where do you live that still has people from Italy and Poland that came over 20 to 30 years ago and still do not know English. I never even said anything about Hispanics, you never learned how to look at a situation without your own biases, did you? If your cousin still does not speak English then maybe YOU should help her. European countries teach English in school and require their students to know how to speak it, so if you have found European immigrants that do not speak English, they are the type that would not be coming over under a merit-based system. I wonder about how many people you have met from African countries or Haiti, because You seem to live in a small bubble. I pray you find your true self at some point in your life and learn to stop lying so blantently.

          • Hopeful

            You are out of line here. You don’t know me. No self respecting Leftist or Progressive would agree with you. They have accused me of being Right-winged, because I am not for big government making everything for free by increasing income taxes and I am Pro-Life. And I didn’t say it was my cousin. I said it was a friend’s cousin and that friend is disgusted that her cousin doesn’t speak English and doesn’t want to learn. And, there are others I know that have been here 50 years and don’t speak any English. They lived in “Little Italy” they didn’t need to learn English. I am not lying. I saw this in New Jersey and Chicago. You can’t make this stuff up. So in living in the NYC area, I have gotten to know and work with Africans and people from the Caribbean. See, I don’t live in a small bubble. I have friends that are from many races and countries of origins. That’s the advantage of being near NYC. I have traveled in Europe to France , Italy, Germany, Spain, etc, It is true they teach their students English; however, outside the tourist areas or business centers they don’t really speak English. That is because they have no need to as adults and so they lose the ability to speak and understand it over time. Anyone that travels knows that. Sounds like you need to pray for yourself to get past your biases, judgmental-ism and inner demons. You should also be careful of calling someone a liar when you have nothing to back that up. I didn’t insult you like that. That is just plain rude.

It means you can objectively weight the options and consequences on both sides of an issue and make a decision that is not just from one view. Sometimes the conservative view is right and sometimes the liberal, but mostly the answer is never that black and white.

          • stluyjuy

            My grandfather came over from Norway and my grandmother was first generation French. My father and his sister spoke English in the home and certainly at school. My father knew both French and Norwegian but he never used either language around his children.

          • sweetolbob

            Hopeful:
            But I’ll bet that your cousin who doesn’t speak any English has picked up enough American idioms to her language, as she speaks it, that she could have learned English if she WANTED to.

            maybe but we sure as heck don’t need the MB 13 gang and criminals , drug dealers or pushers etc. So you loose that disagreement. Some people are not here to assimilate either they are here just to pursue criminal activity or worse.

          • Hopeful

            That ‘s true we don’t need to import any criminals. We have enough home grown ones :-). But, we should be able to separate the bad from the one’s that just want a better life. That’s all I am saying.

          • Maxine Albritton

            that is exactly what trump is pushing for but the left are rejecting it as usual. They need to be vetted, investigated or proven to have no illegal ties. or deeds to their life. they need a way to support themselves so they are not mooching on our welfare system, they need to be educated. I saw children coming into our school system back in the nineties (late) with almost no education in Mexico school/education is apparently not a priority. It is like what do you do with this kid who is older than the usual elementary age child who speaks almost no English and cannot read or write much if anything? This is not what we need.

          • Charles Doss

            White immigration in the period 1930 – 1950’s?? I was born in 1950, and the history I was taught said the US was in the grip of the worst economic depression of all recorded history, starting in 1929, then fought the Axis powers from 1941 thru 1945. Further, the Irish Potato Famine was somewhat earlier than you stated. Mr. Trump does pop off more than I would like, but too many people like you seem to be confused about how we got where we are. Look it up in your Funk & Wagnalls!!

          • Hopeful

            Not confused, but in your nit picking you missed my point. The only point that I was making is that we have let at lot of unskilled really poor people from Europe in this country in the first half of the 20th century, whatever date that was. They are are no different from those “huddled masses” that want in now except they are not European. I am not saying we let only poor oppressed people in. I am saying we shouldn’t shut them all out. That is not what we have been about as a nation or how did we get the name “The Land of Opportunity.” Poor people came here and made something of themselves. A person’s worth should not be judged by the size of their wallet.

          • stluyjuy

            UMMM I think you have your dates wrong…during the years that you specify we didn’t have any immigration. on your opinions, they are just that, your opinions, not truth.

          • Hopeful

            OK, I got the dates wrong. So what. Are you doubting that in the first part of the 20th Century and even before that we had people from Ireland, Italy, England, etc that came here and were not particularly educated, skilled and were basically broke. Then where did the phrase “Give me your huddled masses” come from. My point is still the same. Oh btw, people didn’t want them in here either. There were signs up telling Irish people they were not welcome. Americans have always complained about letting poor folks in regardless of their race. The question is, is that the right thing to do? Our government used to take the high road and ignore the complaints about letting poor Europeans in because letting them in was the right thing to do. Now that these immigrants are largely not European we want to stop letting people build a better life. That doesn’t sit right with me.

            U.S.Borders were closed in 1921 due to the Ellis Island rabble. Ben Franklin warned vigorously not to allow Paupers in the States.98% of the E.Island group were illiterate,minimum half were Marxist,Anarchists,criminals of all sorts,violence from coast to coast ,murdered Pres. McKinley ect.ect. They make up 72% of citizens of U.S. today ,85% of gov.beaurocracy . This was the result of illiterates,flooding U.S.economy from the 1870s to the 1920s .In 1965 Sen. Jacob Javits started it again ! Since 1965 45 million have entered U.S.! I well remember if you had a Degree from College,or University that required a Prof. Lic. to work you could not get one,but if you were illiterate you were welcome .This is deliberate .The question is if Trump,or anyone such as when obama said same thing ,are they correct? I have been to Haiti ! If this was said about Haiti ,it is correct ! Nor is it because White people exist ,but it may make it more apparent. Could this explain the rabid ,sustained attacks on West Euro Culture ? Research the Couden Plan .

    Wow Talk about irrational? A video where someone DID NOT SAY something. I asked if you saw a video to back your claim. And as expected not only do you NOT say you saw any such video, you try, and failed, to turn it upside down and make it work for you. LOL
    Now I will point out to you just how sorry Durbin is. He IS one of the gang of SIX who presented a bill that they claim will cover all of the immigration debate. ONLY problem is that the ONLY thing it does is GIVE AMNESTY. On all other issues, it is a sham and an effort to pretend to address chain migration, lottery migration and the ONLY funding it give to a wall is to maintain the present INCOMPLETE wall
    GOTCHA.
    Now if Durbin had been planning and showing any intelligence, he would have carried his own recording devise so HE could release a recording of what Trump said. In fact, he may have. But since he did not have HIS OWN RECORDING, I suspect that this way, he can make bogus claims and not need to prove it. ONLY for the sheeple like you who accept everything a liberal says and reject out of hand, anything Trump says.

            I see you can’t read again. You are getting worse. You have 2129 comments and NO likes.
            And you hide your profile, just like the Bible says. “Workers of evil love darkness.” John 3:20

            Lmao! I can read and comprehend. Problem is, your comments have no merit.

          • ADRoberts

            And I can say that my comments DO have merit as indicated by my number of “likes” and the like to comment ratio.
            YOU LOSE…… AGAIN.

          • Bobby johnson

            People agreeing with you doesn’t indicate merit.

          • ADRoberts

            Now that is interesting. IF you had bothered to say what YOU claim it takes to indicate merit, you would have made points. But you didn’t. So for you to get any traction, I ask that you specify what it takes for YOU to ascribe merit? I got it. It is what party you belong to. NO? Then maybe it is how liberal a person is? NO.
            Well WHAT?

    This would not be an issue anywhere except the Trump haters are making it such. Most people have enough common sense to discern the context of any such statement, not the liberals though. Any such comment made in a heated debate setting should not have gone outside the meeting room. Just goes to show how the amoral liberals will go to any length and any means to get what they want, sound familiar, petulant children act this way. Is this what we want running or influencing our nation? I think not. Vote conservative! MAGA

    Why do the liberals and the Democrats criticized Pres. Trump for everything he says. I am so tired of political correctness it’s unbelievable! Trump is right they are shed holes when Tucker Carlson asked that spec that represented Obama where he’d want to live Norway or El Salvador he couldn’t answer will foot and he said that everybody was racist for not wanting a brown America no one wants a brown America is wrong god damn criminals living off the government and welfare our country didn’t have this in the 60s and 70s with the criminal element until we started letting all these immigrants in in our country has gone to ship we need to stop all these immigrants coming in stop their families from coming in and get America back on track! And if they don’t like it let him go back to the countries they lived in!!!!

    Nothing my dear!

    It was because he was still playing out the “Victim” that he was/is, or claimed to be.

    Thanks Sambo!

    By the way, he said “Norway or Asia”. See how it’s done, if you leave out “or Asia” you can continue the “Trump is a white supremacist” narrative. If you print the complete sentence you will need to come up with a thoughtful answer to the question he asked. See what I believe is…

    Everyone that ever migrated to America was leaving a sh**ho**. Otherwise, why make the journey? The problem with the new form of immigration is that America is being turned into a sh**ho** as a result of it. We are taking in a bunch of people that obviously have no interest in becoming an American. They are not being taught what made this country great and why it’s better than the place they fled. The new immigrant is not willing to change their sh**ho** ways to become an American.

    The worst mistake the US Congress ever made was to “reform” the immigration law in 1965, which opened the floodgates to Third World immigration. Instead of importing African savages who soil the streets, how about importing more educated Europeans? No one should be allowed to immigrate to the USA unless they can read and speak English, and have at least a high school education.
