Listening to Mark Halperin earnestly explain how Trump has a mandate for mass deportation, I am appalled at how easily these media types fall into acquiescence with the latest outrage — and how they are willing to use language to distort and normalize this.
- There was no mandate for ethnic cleansing. People who voted for Trump wanted him to keep terrorists out. As far as I can tell, we don’t have any Mexican or Central American terrorists.
- This is the longtime philosophy of Bannon and Miller, Trump’s advisors. They are literally white supremacists. I’m not exaggerating.
- Almost 3 million more people voted to not do this.
- Most people do not understand that the “criminals” targeted by Trump can be anyone — because just being in the country illegally makes you a criminal. In fact, illegal immigrants have a lower crime rate.
- This used to be America.
