Context is important. He could have refused for different reasons other than skin.

He didn't. He was talking about illegal immigrants from mexico, not all mexicans. Hell he even said mexico is sending their worst. How do you get all mexicans from their worst? And on the illegal immigrants causing some trouble, he is right http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/ice-re...le/2589785

So *all* Mexicans who are illegal immigrants are rapists? That's called a stereotype.

You can read the court case online at United States v. Fred Trump, Donald Trump, and Trump Management online and judge for yourself.

RE: I'm Protesting Your Protest
Protesting is really our only voice when you are powerless to make actual change. I don't understand why people are belittling it.

Once a decision has been made, there is literally nothing else we can do but raise our voices against what we don't believe. So the world knows we don't agree with this leadership. It gives us a feeling of some control over that which we have none.

I will take that over complacency any day.

Ironic, huh???

So -- If it's right for you to protest my protest, my protest of the other protestors is spot on, eh?????

Of course it's your right to protest the protesters. It's a very important part of free speech. Hasn't been used much since the seventies, but it did prove to be an important tool for long term change.

And it's your right to protest my protesting of the protestors......

Although, I gotta say - it gets kinda confusing........

I didn't say hillary, I said her camp, like someone working with her.

Trump said Hillary started it. In any event, Trump was involved with the Birther movement long before her campaign was started.

I am sorry, I just do not see any humor in what happened. Well, that's not true - but not the way you see it. I think this has the potential to leave us totally fucked. I'll talk with you about it again in a few year's time. Until then, frolic while the frolicking is good.

A little thing called politics and trying to win an election.

Btw, did you miss the link in my post?

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Protest is not about effecting immediate change - riots are that. Protest is about letting everyone know what you think about an issue. It's our right to protest peacefully and make our opinions known. The effects are not immediate, but long term.

Hmm. Careless wording on my part.

By "pointless" I meant that the election was legitimate and that protesting the results could not effect a change. Although the protesters haven't been calling for recounts and such, that sort of thing leaps to mind. Might just be an assumption or impression on my part.

Insofar as expressing one's opinion, then yes, as I noted, I am supportive of the protesters. I haven't heard any reports of violence and such, so go for it. Protest away. Express your opinion.

I agree, he was wrong, but it doesn't change the fact the democrats started it first.
