Re: Attacks on Minorities in Trump's America

It doesn't say if the victims were minorities but one thing is for sure, this type of crap happening in NYC is due to the political climate.

‘Neo-Nazis’ beat up brothers over ‘anti-fascist’ sticker: cops

So, if these guys beat up their "white" brothers....it's ok....but you'll be pounding that drum if the victims were not white.

Nice to know we have advocates like you out there.

Didn't say it was OK, the thread is called 'Attacks on Minorities in Trump's America' but felt it was worth mentioning even if they weren't minorities because it was despicable.

I advocate every day for people. Including minorities.

What do you do, except for accusing others of things that aren't true.

Nice variant of the "I have a black friend" excuse. Such a humanitarian.

I call out people like you who say that Obama's divisive and then defends garbage like Donald Trump and Steve King.

I advocate for minorities every day, except online where I only advocate for Neo-Nazis.

Your post is no less a lie than if I responded to it as if you'd said all black people deserved to be beaten. Anyone with the faculties to participate in this forum can clearly see that just by reading what you quoted and posted. So what's the point? Is it just for your own amusement? Or do you just have such disdain for the rest of us that anything that makes us think less of you is worth doing?

There's the problem with tweeting the first thing that comes into your mind. You wind up regretting it.

Thank God world leaders don't do that.

As she explained, she is sensitive to it because of the non-stop wall of anti-Semitic hate thrown her way.

And hey, she admitted her mistake.

Admitting mistakes and apologizing doesn't work anymore. You know that.

She sure did. And given her occupation, I don't doubt for a minute she gets the hate she described directed her way on a regular basis.

Donald Trump wouldn't even apologize for, or really acknowledge being a birther piece of shit.

Oh, the fucking irony!!!

“I think president Obama has been the most ignorant president in our history…President Obama when he became president, he didn't know anything. This guy didn’t know a thing. And honestly, today he knows less. Today, he knows less. He has done a terrible job.” - Donald J. Trump (Press conference in Florida, July 27, 2016)

Michael Flynn Resigns as National Security Adviser

By MAGGIE HABERMAN, MATTHEW ROSENBERG, MATT APUZZO and GLENN THRUSHFEB. 13, 2017

Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser, resigned on Monday night after it was revealed that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

Mr. Flynn, who served in the job for less than a month, said he had given “incomplete information” regarding a telephone call he had with the ambassador in late December about American sanctions against Russia, weeks before President Trump’s inauguration. Mr. Flynn previously had denied that he had any substantive conversations with Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak, and Mr. Pence repeated that claim in television interviews as recently as this month.

But on Monday, a former administration official said the Justice Department warned the White House last month that Mr. Flynn had not been fully forthright about his conversations with the ambassador. As a result, the Justice Department feared that Mr. Flynn could be vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.

In his resignation letter, which the White House emailed to reporters, Mr. Flynn said he had held numerous calls with foreign officials during the transition. “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador,” he wrote. “I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology.”

“I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way,” Mr. Flynn wrote.

The White House said in the statement that it was replacing Mr. Flynn with retired Lt. Gen. Joseph K. Kellogg Jr. of the Army, a Vietnam War veteran, as acting national security adviser.

Mr. Flynn was an early and ardent supporter of Mr. Trump’s candidacy, and in his resignation he sought to praise the president. “In just three weeks,” Mr. Flynn said, the new president “has reoriented American foreign policy in fundamental ways to restore America’s leadership position in the world.”

But in doing so, he inadvertently illustrated the brevity of his tumultuous run at the National Security Council, and the chaos that has gripped the White House in the first weeks of the Trump administration — and created a sense of uncertainty around the world.
