    Don't know how you guys feel about politics, but I find it fascinating.

    Do you have a question or a comment, or is this thread just a declaration of your own interests?

    There's not even a description that tells us what the video is about. If we want to know, we're forced to start watching it. Why would I waste my time trying to work out what you wanted to get out of posting it?

    I looked on 8chan awhile ago, saw a link to the same video, so I'm wondering if you get your news from there?

    Schan? You would need share a link, beer. Not certain what you are referring.

    How come you don't know anything about it?

    You would do far better to condemn his racism and move on than to try to claim it was something else. The "it's not really racism" approach makes right wingers look like mindless idiots who are easily led around by the nose.

    I did google it, didn't see anything relevant.

    What makes him a racist?

    His demand that people of color "go back to where they came from."

    The KKK had a very similar chant around 1890; "send them back!" They, of course, were referring to sending blacks back to Africa.

    I don't see the merit of the board; it's truly a waste of time. To describe it in a few words: it's the worst of the surface web.

    Probably would get an infraction if I posted any link. But hey, sometimes it does have some relevant things.

    On their race, you mean?
    Every time he opened his yap and said anything about them.
    Every single time.

    You're fascinated by politics, you claim, but you can't identify political appeals to racial bigotry - and you're an American.

    It's the single biggest issue in American politics, and you don't know it when you see it.

    He didn't; he talked about their race. "Go back to where you came from." That's a typical racist attack against immigrants. (Which only one out of four was to begin with.)

    His spokesperson, however, did refer to their color. She said they were from the "dark underbelly" of the US.

    I certainly hope you are not going to turn into one of those disgusting people who defends racists and bigots.

    You're right, the issue just won't die.

    Mod note: The topic of this thread was never clear, but the way this thread is developing, it is reasonable to assume it is an attempted dog-whistle at racists and/or neo-Nazis. This interpretation might be incorrect. If so, the opening poster should have been clearer about the intended topic.

    Bowser has received a warning for posting an inappropriate image.

    The thread is now closed.
