Some immigrants is correct.  Some immigrants are MS-13.  If an immigrant is a member of the Mexican Mafia, or any violent gang, shouldn't they also be categorized the same as a MS-13 member?


The person the President was responding to specified MS-13. You'll have to ask her why the others were not included.

 

Also please note that the MSM and posters who went after the President over this did not say anything about Mexican mobsters, only "immigrants".


If you want to talk about the word "all" and how some used it, that is fine.  But in blaming the MSM you need to look up the definitions of some and all.  Unless you are claiming that MS-13 members are NOT immigrants, in which case you would be correct.

There are answers, there are direct answers, there is skirting an issue, and then there are insinuations. Of which trump is a master “dog whistler” of insinuating false narratives to throw the red meat to his supporters. Remember how many times he has called immigrants rapists, murderers, and criminals. So that when he speaks of immigrants, his supporters think of them as criminals which is not the truth. Same applies to the DACA kids, he insinuates and implies that they are criminals. How about Obama’s birth certificate? How about Obama spying on him in trump tower? How about the FBI spying on him? How about the deep state that is out to get him? NFL players? Puerto Rico? russian interference?

He makes up false narratives, which he knows are lies, insinuates that they are the truth, throws them to his supporters, they lap it up and support the dictator that he wants to be.

This is not the action of the President of the United States...of which trump is not!

Focus - this is not about dog whistling, red meat, "how many times he called.....", DACA, Obama's place of birth, the FBI, Puerto Rico, the NFL, Russia, nor your imagined "dictator".

 

It is very straight forward - the woman was talking about MS-13, he responded about MS-13, it is really that straight forward.

Okay. What is trump really doing about MS-13 other than ranting about and making insinuations that immigrants are all gang members.

And he certainly doesn’t show support for immigrants.

And why are observations and statements all hateful? Slight over reaction?

Don’t consider him not releasing his tax returns as hateful, though deceptive and perhaps dishonest. 

And who is the Woman?

It appears some aren't willing to offer their opinion, "sp" other than to say, "go ask someone else".  I guess it's "too risky".

 

And from what I've read, MS-13 doesn't require those initiated to be "illegal immigrants".  Though I've heard one must be white to be in the KKK and Nazi Party.

No "rabbit hole" - that is all made up. Hardly.  I wonder why some think posters can't read.

 

Bottom line - the President was referring to MS-13, Agreed, as said before by several and which you ignored.  Some in....the MSM and some posters went bonkers claiming it as about all immigrants. Again, agreed as stated previously.  So why continue your whine directed to someone who agree's?

Repeated use of the same photo and repeated use of the same title, as you have done here, can be considered spamming.

 

Again, when this was posted previously, those defending its use didn't do their homework.

 

If they did, they would have discovered that Trump's quotation about animals did not include reference to the MS-13 gang. Trump was talking about immigrants in general. In fact, immigrant communities generally have a lower crime rate than the surrounding communities so Trump was even lying once again. Trump and his xenophobic self, he should be ashamed.

 

In any case, Trump's inability to articulate a thought because of his mental state had Trump and his minions going back and "telling everybody what he meant". I have lost count on how many times Trump and/or his surrogates have to "explain what he means".

Maybe you need to listen to the youtube video before you make your comments. There was no question about MS-13 by the Sheriff.

 

Trump went on with his rant and called all undocumented aliens ANIMALS just as the REAL NEWS is reporting. When a President speaks, those listening shouldn't have to read his mind and interpret what he's talking about.

 

You have obviously done that here and made the assumption he was on the subject of MS-13. Heck, even the Sheriff's dialogue wasn't about MS-13, except for one sentence.

 

Use the REAL Transcript, not one made up by Fox News and all the rest of Trump's Base.

I did listen to the video and about 2/3 into the video she mentions MS13 and Trump comments back referred to that particular scum. If liberals like that scum and want them in this country, so be it but make sure you escort them to YOUR neighborhood.

If the Trump haters did their homework they would have to admit that the President's words were in direct response to the words of another about MS-13. Merely reading or listening to the event would make it unnecessary to be concerned with anyone interpreting the President's words.

This topic is an "interesting" exercise that unsuccessfully attempted to cast an aura of legitimacy and "respectability" upon the having and holding of conservative implicit racial bias - this century's conservative equivalent of Jim Crow. 

 

The fact that trump's approval numbers remain around 40% is not at all coincidental - the majority of the nation's citizens are decent honest, honorable, and considerably less racially biased people who do not approve of or agree with trump's words and actions...

White House News Release

 

What You Need To Know About The Violent Animals Of MS-13

 

WHAT: The violent animals of MS-13 have committed heinous, violent attacks in communities across America.

Too many innocent Americans have fallen victim to the unthinkable violence of MS-13’s animals.

At the State of the Union in January 2018, President Trump brought as his guests Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas.  Police believe these young girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members on Long Island, New York, in 2016. Suffolk County Police Commissioner stated that the “murders show a level of brutality that is close to unmatched.”

In Maryland, MS-13’s animals are accused of stabbing a man more than 100 times and then decapitating him, dismembering him, and ripping his heart out of his body. Police believe MS-13 members in Maryland also savagely beat a 15-year-old human trafficking victim. The MS-13 animals used a bat and took turns beating her nearly 30 times in total.

In Houston, Texas, two MS-13 members were charged after kidnapping and sexually assaulting one girl and murdering another. The two MS-13 animals laughed, smiled, and waved for cameras in court as they faced the charges.

New York communities have suffered tremendously from the abhorrent violence of MS-13. Nearly 40 percent of all murders in Suffolk County, New York between January 2016 and June 2017 were tied to MS-13.

In January 2017, MS-13 members were charged with killing and hacking up a teenager in Nassau County. MS-13’s animals reportedly saw the murder as a way to boost their standing in the gang. In April 2017, police believe four young men were brutally murdered by MS-13 animals on Long Island. One victim was a young man in town visiting family during an Easter week vacation. Just last month, in April 2018, MS-13 reportedly called for its members on Long Island to kill a cop for the sake of making a statement.

WHY: MS-13 is a transnational gang which follows the motto of “kill, rape, control” by committing shocking acts of violence in an attempt to instill fear and gain control.

MS-13 is a transnational gang that has brought violence, fear, and suffering to American communities. MS-13, short for Mara Salvatrucha, commits shocking acts of violence to instill fear, including machete attacks, executions, gang rape, human trafficking, and more. In their motto, the animals of MS-13 make clear their goal is to “kill, rape, control.” The gang has more than 10,000 members in the United States spreading violence and suffering.

Recent investigations have revealed MS-13 gang leaders based in El Salvador have been sending representatives into the United States illegally to connect the leaders with local gang members. These foreign-based gang leaders direct local members to become even more violent in an effort to control more territory.

What your "press release" doesn't mention, Tex is that Trump lied, as usual, when he claims there "are over 10,000 MS-13 gang members" in the US when in fact it's less than 3,001.  Nothing like stirring up the racism and bigotry in his base, eh?

 

I find it typical of the racists and bigots in his base to cite the "animals" in the MS-13 gang but have nothing to say when other racists and bigots have been doing similar heinous acts for decades including lynchings, unlawful beatings and shootings and other atrocious acts against others such as:

 

 

 

 

MS-13's actions are certainly an issue that needs to be addressed, but magnifying the problem to more than what it is to instill fear and incite the racists and bigots in this country is far worse.  It leads to events like this:

So you symphatize with these criminals over cops and law abiding citizens?  Do you condone the atrocities these criminals commit?  That's how it sounds.  And how has the problem been addressed?  Those who immigrated need to be deported, and those from this country imprisoned.  Regarding numbers in this country, many immigrated.  But who cares how many of these criminals are in the United States?  One is enough, let alone in the thousands.

So you symphatize (sic) with these criminals over cops and law abiding citizens?  Of course not, I don't discern which "hate" is worse.  Why do you?  Do you condone the atrocities these criminals commit?  That's how it sounds.  Not to objective, intelligent people. And how has the problem been addressed?  Which ones specifically?  Those who immigrated need to be deported, Not if they immigrated legally.  Furthermore, most informed people know immigrants have a far lower crime rate than non-immigrants.  Most racists and bigots ignore that fact....it doesn't support their bigoted views. and those from this country imprisoned. Isn't that what happens already? Regarding numbers in this country, many immigrated.  Most didn't. But who cares how many of these criminals are in the United States?  Trump and his bigoted base must because they keep lying about the numbers.  Why do you think THAT is?  One is enough, let alone in the thousands. Same as bigots and racists spreading their vile hate.
