So if someone says they can blow a Congressman's head off from a mile away and the DoJ does nothing about it, I frankly don't know what it is that you think you can do about it.
Exactly what I said:
noemon wrote:Trump's buddy Acosta letting Epstein off for confirmed pedophilia does not mean that should be the new normal for us in here.
US prosecutors are not a standard that matters.

That is because they are not meant to intimidate you but others and you seem to be ok with that.
I don't understand the question. Islam is not a race.
Brown people are generally understood as of different race(s) just as well.

It was not hard at all searching for 2 keywords. I was certain that I would find something and I did. I do not think you can sustain that attack on the congresswomen with a straight face.

Not really but sure...where?
blackjack21 wrote:Perhaps. However, Trump was commenting on their critique of the United States, not on the color of their skin.
He was commenting on their descent.

For the same reason it's prudent to speak up at sjw outrage.

My interpretation of it was it was intended to trigger people like you, and Trump met his mark. I also think both the "squad" and Trump should be able to say what they want, and the rest of us should be able to offer our own critiques of what they said and why we think they said it. I don't think we all have to agree. That's the whole point of debate.
There is no trigger here, what he said is made on the basis of these ladies ethnic origins. That is the matter of fact that cannot be discounted.
