Trump issues threats over immigrant caravan heading to U.S.
First, look at the faces of the “caravan of migrants.” Do these people look like they are coming to kill white people as Trump implied? But many white people find it convenient to believe such trash. I live in an area where people swallow Trump’s word despite his pathological lying. If the GOP retains Congress, I would not be surprised if someone burned a cross on my lawn. Trump said what most white people feel but was once afraid to publicly admit. Now, these whites are out of the closet. Trump encouraged and legitimized their fear, hatred and innate violence toward ethnic groups.
I don’t see any weapons or angry faces, like the marches of white supremacists, as if they are marching to harm anyone. White supremacists who marched down US streets yelling racial threats and wielding weapons were given police escorts to protect their right to hate and incite violence. These demonized refugees traveled by foot thousands of miles with their families to seek asylum. Their plight and suffering ignored by the land of the free.
Even the liberal media is supportive of Trump’s fear mongering as they show hoards of people headed to Mexico and use the same code words to describe people seeking asylum. I for one think there are two sides to a story. I’d like to hear theirs from their mouths.
We quickly forget it was US interference in Central and South American governments and the economy that resulted in the refugee crisis. It’s not much different from the refugee crisis in Europe caused by the US and Israeli-sponsored wars in the Middle East.
Trump blamed the Democrats for the “ the caravan “ of immigrants. But wait for a second, isn’t he POTUS? Aren’t Republicans in control of Congress? Didn’t Trump wage war on immigrants? If there is a “caravan” of immigrant about to overtake white people, it’s because of Trump’s failed family separation and zero-tolerance policies. The responsibility for this problem falls squarely on Republicans and Trump, not the Democrats.
But somehow Democrats were outmaneuvered by Trump, the demagogue, who started the problem, defined the response and blamed the Democrats who had little to no say in the activities of the Federal government since Trump became POTUS. Trump’s expanding base of terrorist white men and women suck any shit that comes out of Trump’s ass. His shit feeds their innate hatred and violence for ethnic groups. FoxNews spreads that shit daily. White people love it, young and old! They hang on to every lie told on Fox as it was food needed for their survival.
What has Trump’s presidency taught me so far? That most white people are cruel, hypocritical and violent bigots. It’s given me a glimpse of what slavery must have been like for black people. Black people have been rendered irrelevant–truth is Black Lives Do Not Matter except during election–whites have moved on to destroy Hispanics, code word migrants.
Conservative columnist Max Boot called out President Donald Trump and Fox News for “demagoguery,” “racism” and “nativism” in their comments about the caravan of refugees that recently crossed the Mexico-Guatemala border.
Trump mentions the caravan at his campaign rallies and often says the 2018 midterm elections will the “the election of the caravan.”
“It is demagoguery,” Boot said Sunday on CNN. “It is also, I believe, racism and nativism really pandering to the fears of Trump supporters and Fox News viewers, who tend to be older white males who are alarmed about the supposed invasion of dark-skinned newcomers coming to America.”
“The threat is entirely bogus because, in fact, border crossings have declined dramatically in the last 18 years, down 80 percent,” said Boot, a CNN analyst. “There is not this massive army of illegal immigrants. And these people are not even illegal immigrants. They are refugees who are seeking legal admission to the United States.”

The inscription at the Liberty Statue reads: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
The “Problem” seems that the US policy of destabilization and war has created these masses in Latin America like around Europe! So it is “not for them”! The US exposes itself as what it is: the World´s Monster!
Who will kill the monster and save the world?
Angela I agree with what you say about the reason these people are fleeing their countries, “We quickly forget it was US interference in Central and South American governments and the economy that resulted in the refugee crisis. It’s not much different from the refugee crisis in Europe caused by the US and Israeli-sponsored wars in the Middle East.” But to think criminals are not coming along for the ride is being naive and black people all over the country is catching hell because of the wave of immigration illegal or not. Ever since the civil rights legislation immigration has increased dramatically! The fight is against Zionism and Neocons that are on both sides of congress. But in the mean time we need to stop the flow of illegals and be serious about prosecuting anyone that hires them. We have been accepting over a million immigrants a year for the last 20 years! Look it up!
Rudy, remember in days of slavery and since it was and still is commonplace for whites to convict slaves or black people falsely. Also, remember ISIS was a US and Israeli supported tool used to justify US invasion and the Israeli occupation of sovereign nations. What makes you believe Trump? If he is and that would be unheard of, I would ask the motive.
I don’t doubt there are criminals amongst them but aren’t there criminals amongst the European immigrants Trump embraces? His wife’s Dad is one. I don’t think Mr. Rivera, the indicted illegal immigrant, killed Mollie Tibbetts but he’ll be convicted for the murder. Her death is being used to fan the flames of hatred and fear of Hispanic immigrants so the GOP can retain control of Congress. Mollie Tibbetts killer is probably white and still out there perfecting his killer skills.
Rudy your response surprises me, but I know you and many black people feel that way. If it weren’t immigrants there would be some other excuse to convict and incarcerate black people. It’s all part of the Great Shadow Plan (GSP) of the New World Order (NWO). The issue is not Hispanic immigration that’s been in decline for decades but whites losing dominance or white supremacy. It’s estimated that in the next two to 5 decades the US Hispanic population will exceed US whites. WS and white people dread that reality.
It is their fear, not ours. Don’t fall for the BS that MS 13 is coming to get us and we should be scared. That is a ruse. The real issue is fear that POC will outnumber white people if Hispanic immigration continues especially since the birthrate among whites declined.
To your point, indeed, if the US harmed my family, I would be part of that caravan, and it would not be to seek asylum. We should be working on ways to identify those individuals who I’m sure are not a significant percent yet but will grow if Trump keeps up this policy of torturing asylum seekers.
There are enough people in this country who would like to see it blown to bits. Think about the number of Timothy McVeighs returning with mental illness to the US from fighting wars in the ME. Think about the rise in mass shootings and who is behind these. I believe accurate stats would show the number of violent white people on the increase. Further, most are not convicted because law enforcement frames people from other ethnic groups who are then wrongfully convicted. That skews the stats to make it appear that POC/immigrants are criminals when in fact most are framed and then tricked into confessing to crimes they never committed by court-hired public defenders (PDs) One wonders if that was the initial intent of public defenders to skew the stats.
Many whites (myself included) forget that some of our ancestors sought asylum like these individuals, while others of our ancestors actually killed those who inhabited our land (something these people with not do). Of course, many others forget those things too.
Hi Brendan, many whites conveniently forget a lot of things and do a lot of harm. It’s encouraging to see white people like yourself own it.
You’re right about that. Many of us do forget a lot of things and cause great harm in the process.
Angela-On a related note, if you haven’t heard of it yet, you might be interested in hearing about what some call “genealogy resistance.” It’s interesting to see how some of the biggest opponents of “chain migration” have exactly that (chain migration) in their ancestry.
Angela my main point is to not be so quick to support these people coming into this country. We think we can form a coalition to help each other but when it comes time for us no support. What I heard most of Hispanic gangs taken over neighbors that were originally black harassing and even firebombing homes. Now this is mostly in California but things like this can spread quickly. Why are we so quick to give support when none is given in return. Jobs are getting scarce most of the jobs that are not going overseas we use to have are being taken over by them. When they get in positions of power they hire their own. We are sliding down the Potum pole. Listen we have to learn how to work together I’m talking about the descendents of slaves in this country. It’s a dog eat dog world out there and we don’t need to support people looking to drive us out! Let them fend for themselves!
Rudy, your point is well taken. I agree and am guilty of supporting causes where there is no reciprocal support. Often I know that, and wish the support to carry forward instead of returned to me. But you are correct Hispanic people do not support Black people. They don’t hire black people the same with Asian businesses.
Part of me as I read your comments thought that’s what white people said to keep us divided. The other part recognized you are right maybe this is not our issue and let them fend for themselves. They don’t march with us and often look down on us like every other ethnic group. Immigrating to this country as a child and growing up in a mixed community with Dominicans, it’s hard for me not to feel empathy.
I may think horrible things, but I try to do the right thing. I had a whole career of taking care of patients who often hurled racial insults at me, even keyed my car and slashed my tires. I am not made for a dog eat dog world.
Do you think Trump should use the military to stop them at all cost even shoot them if they try to rush the southern border?
With that said it doesn’t mean we have to be fools. Their should be a screening process for these asylum seekers. I’d think by now we would have perfected that process.
Angela I’m sorry if I sound so harsh to you! No I don’t want the military to harm those people in any way. I would like for this country to realize we are the problem. Those countries in Central America governmental leaders will do what we tell them to do but the problem is they are! Angela we both know our government wants to create chaos and fear to gain more control over our lives. Our elected officials are either in on it or to scare to speak up. It just about at the point of self preservation go with what looks best for you, circle the wagons.
Rudy, you didn’t sound harsh. You are right! I understand your perspective and often feel the same. We have limited bandwidth and need to focus on our battles. They have government leaders who should protect their needs, and if their governments will not, it’s not up to us to fight their battles.
No country accepts people when they come illegally. Look at the situation caused by immigration in Europe. People can be admitted to a country only legally. Why people failing to understand this simple rule.
You fail to understand these people are seeking asylum. Apparently they can only do so at the US border. There is a process for them and these asylum seekers are following that process.
I do not understand why do you accept the words of a pathological liar and illegitimate president? Why do you fail to see his lies and manipulation?
