So, why does he continue to make comments like this, Celticsforever?
I am not defending his comments. I think Pres. Trump is a boorish human being. He should never had said the blankhole countries comment.
It could be he is racist but I do not know him it could be he has a colonial mindset it could be he is a jerk. I think it could be he is all of the above to some extent but I don't know him. He seems very narcissistic to me, though. Right now all we can do is speculate and it does not look good. He is embarrassing. Could he be a white supremacist? Basically, we have Archie Bunker as a president as I see. He does seem certainly prejudiced to some extent.
YOU are former Military.
I am. But what does that have to do with anything? If anything I saw more racism in the military than anywhere else in my life. In he 1/4 INF people fell into clicks and sometimes they clashed, of course we all did our duty but in all honesty it was not a racial utopia. I thought we are all human beings on the side who bleed red blood but I can't say that people from all races shared that sentiment.
But when you continue to spread nonsense like no GOP has condemned him, I see you as part of the problem and not the solution. Your literally part of the echo chamber reinforcing that view for others.
I just think itís strange people are using this issue to paint trump as a racist. I donít think the comment has much to do with race
A statement I have heard on the radio is that if this is about the people it is racist. If it is about the countries it is not racial. I don't know if that is the case and it seems like a rationalization.
Third World was a term that originated out of the Cold War to label a country not aligned with the Soviet Union or the USA. Now it means a country that is lagging behind. But people have called those parts of the world, third world countries for years. Isn't that wrong, too, to some extent. They exist in our world, isn't that a put down of sorts? Granted it nothing like calling them a hole to put fecal matter in but it is still demeaning.
The bottom line is certain jobs require a degree of modicum in regards to basic civility. The Office of the President in one of those jobs. Pres. Trump definitely seems to lack this civility.
