    I doubt I would be friends with nearly any Prez who ever served.

    I'm looking for a government manger, not a buddy.

      I wonder how many from the following groups with be voting for Hillary.

      New Black Panther Party
      War On The Horizon
      National Black Foot Soldier Network
      Nation of Islam
      Black Riders Liberation Party
      La Raza
      Aztlan
      Mecha

      "If the racist "Sensenbrenner Legislation" passes the US Senate, there is no doubt that a massive civil disobedience movement will emerge. Eventually labor union power can merge with the immigrant civil rights and "Immigrant Sanctuary" movements to enable us to either form a new political party or to do heavy duty reforming of the existing Democratic Party. The next and final steps would follow and that is to elect our own governors of all the states within Azlan."

          Why do you find KKK support for Trump so offensive but you are closed lipped about KKK support for Clinton....

          Your agenda is obvious.
          The KKK has been a non-issue group for a long time. Unfounded concern over nothing.

            Media articles and the polls that 'support them' don't impress me.

            The Dems have owned the black vote for generations, so Trump, like any other GOP candidate, have little expectation there.

            Funny how the legends of the Great Latino Vote hasn't benefitted Cruz...

            I'm non-White, and I'll vote Trump if he's the GOP candidate.


            Cruz was determined to be "not really Hispanic" because he comes from a conservative state.

            I love the racism of that stance (former dem governor Richardson) as it assumes that all members of a particular racial group must think the same way. The media supported that view too based on articles found in NBCLatino.

                  It's getting pretty comical, the level of hysteria about who supports Trump. A handful of racists supporting one candidate or another doesn't really mean jack squat. As 101Combatvet mentioned plenty of racist groups support the democrats, it's just that the media and the Trump-haters ignore facts and only focus on the few tidbits that support their own opinion. This is just like the people who blame Trump for that guy punching the protester at his rally, then blame Trump again for Sanders supporters getting violent at an anti-Trump rally. Ridiculous.

                  Speaking of Azlan, why is it that the Mexican American racists think that states like California really belong to them? I looked it up once and in the entire history of the state of California Mexico owned it for only about 20 years. Thousands of years of native people living there, followed by hundreds of years that Spain ran things, 20 years of Mexican control and then 165 years or so as a US state. I guess those 20 years were really the most important ones? What makes it so odd is that the same Mexican-Americans who think it belongs to Mexico would never dream of moving back to Mexico themselves because it's so much worse than the US. Making those states part of Mexico would just make them like Mexico, and these same people would be jumping over the fence into Oregon, Utah etc. Crazy argument thankfully supported by not very many people.

                    The cross is also know as the Odin cross and is a common symbol of white supremacist organizations.
                    Stormfront uses it in their logo as do many other white power organizations.


                    As to the comment about the "88", sure she has one white supremacist symbol tattooed on her (the cross) but for the other one she chose to tattoo "BB", not "88" in Gothic script. I'm sure it's because she's a HUGE Daisy fan.

                      I know, everyone's a racist.

                      "The even-armed cross within a circle has been ascribed many meanings by many groups and cultures. One such meaning is that of the stages of the day: morning, noon, evening, midnight. Another possibility includes the meeting places of the divine energy, of self, nature, wisdom and divinity. Of course, obvious relations such as east, north, south and west; or earth, air, water and fire can also be derived from the shape. Even the Native Americans used this as a symbol for their Medicine Wheel. The sun wheel has also been called Odinís Cross, a symbol in Norse Mythology."

                        This reminds me of the small tattoo on my hand. I've been branded a gang member by a few people. Was told that a small tattoo is a low-key method to identify my gang. The truth is that I was stabbed with an India Ink pen when I was in the 5th grade. But, yeah people come up with the wildest ****.

                          Besides, BoBo is a total racist and the Latinos didn't come out then, so their actions now mean nothing, especially since they are Federal criminals by definition.
                          Why does a divisive candidate make for a better President?

                              It registers. We just know better then to care. Every public figure has admirers who are racists. Star Trek has racist fans. Big deal. You can't avoid it.

                              True but also meaningless. Everything is offensive to somebody.

                              There is nothing about it to be offended by unless you're overly sensitive. I'm guessing you didn't like the fact that the gangsters were Italian-American? So what? I don't see you griping over Boardwalk Empire having Irish-American gangsters. I certainly wasn't offended by it. If they made a move about white protestant Missouri gangsters (Lawless comes close) I wouldn't be offended there either. You're just being overly sensitive.

                              Sure it does. In this age of perpetually hurt feelings, someone's going to get a hair up their about something. If we ban everything offensive to anyone then we ban everything. I find Bill Maher to be a pompous d-nozzle but my being offended by him does not prompt me to rant at HBO to remove his show. I just don't watch him. You, similarly, are free to NOT WATCH The Sopranos. Boom, offensiveness avoided.

                              They are free to be offended by him. They are free not to vote for him. And Trump is free not to care. That's the nice thing about living in a FREE country.

                              You guys are actually doing a good job of steering me toward Trump. I started out not liking him but between the Nazi screamers and the Church of Perpetual Self Pity and Victimhood, you guys do a good job of getting me to think "well at least he isn't THAT bad".
