You are reading page 128 of Donald Trump as GOP hopeful: Take him seriously. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

For the right wing, any acknowledgement of racial issues is "race baiting". We're not supposed to talk about it, ever ... unless, of course, we're talking about how minority people see white folks. "Reverse racism" is apparently the only valid subject of discussion on the issue.

And, as another poster pointed out, Trump's pandering to the alt-right - which he seems to have turned over to his son now that he's pretending to care about Black communities - is race-baiting of the most poisonous kind. But that's OK because he's unPC and rich.

Speaking of the alt-right, I've read here and there that some of them are calling for the establishment of a White Homeland. Haven't they heard of Europe? Maybe we should send them all there ... only where would we build The Wall?

completely ridiculous, everything you wrote. Invalidating an entire segment of people is wrong. Discussing race relations? Not supposed to talk about it? That's all that has happened the past 8 years to the nth degree. And so you're saying all other races call race issues "race baiting?" Nice of you to spread some filth of a white homeland.... that's just the dumbest thing I've ever read. Truly. So you're saying that people who report race issues are invalidated, that's it's not legitimate? Do you see the error in this way of thinking? Probably not.... Who knows what your point is about Trump, then his son.... but that's ok, nobody's listening anyway.

Put out a chain in the Mediterranean. Oh yes trump race baits, and I have said that before.

There shouldn't be any black communities, or any white ones for that matter. Not if we are going to truly overcome all of this.

Seggregation wether legal, or otherwise psychologically promotes tribalism a.k.a racism among all human beings.

When you have stockholders it is other's people money. That is one of the reasons for becoming a corporation. What do you think stocks and bonds are?

The Trump organization is privately held.

what, exactly, am I making up? It's "Lickspittle" fyi. Attention to detail.

Repeating what is true IS likely to pull those off the fence, so yes, good job for me.

opps...sorry I missed that detail. I'll Google the correct word.

As far as discussing with you the details that I feel are incorrect and made up, you meme calling us idiots shuts me up. Of course, I always respect someone's right to have an opinion.

And there-in lies the heart of the radical right dominance and specifically Donald Trump's rise to power ... schoolyard neener-neener that is intended to make everybody who disagrees or challenges shut up, already. Verbal terrorism.

Not intended as any kind of slam ... a body gets tired of being mocked and belittled. It's the reason that liberal became a dirty word and folks like the Clintons dreamed up their "third way" politics.

Ritual defamation is a cornerstone of radical right power ... sling so much vicious irrelevant mud that the actual debate is drowned out and eventually extinguished.

Well, to be fair the comments from Clinton about the "deplorables" doesn't help our cause any.

It's when we start doing it to each other here at AN that I don't like. There are always times when we aren't uncivil, but we can work it out...but not when I'm being called an idiot.

I for one, have really tried to understand the "allure" of Trump, but when I ask questions, I feel like I am assailed with either insults or the never-ending "Hillary is a liar!"

I am one of those pie in the sky folks that think the President really should be really smart and have good grasp on the Constitution and world affairs. I have heard nothing from the Trump camp that leads me to believe their candidate has any of those qualities. Humility and compassion are biggies, too.

Name-calling =/= debate, 'tis true. Although the alt-right loons supporting Trump are pretty deplorable. As is the minister who says Trump stopped a tsunami and that proves that God wants him to be president.

ETA Since Hillary called him out on pandering to the lunatic fringe, he seems to have turned their care and feeding to his son - not the sharpest crayon in the box, either. AEB his attempt to solicit campaign contributions from foreign diplomats.

She and quite a few others in the Administration, lied repeatedly about what happened in Benghazi. She also lied about her emails, her private server.

As we saw in the 2004 election, Republicans don't care about lies that get Americans killed. They are perfectly fine with such lies. To demonstrate so clearly that telling lies that get people killed in perfectly acceptable in 2004, it's absurd for them to now, all of a sudden, find a conscious.
