The real reason Democrats are throwing
such a fit about ´s-hole countries´

American Thinker, by John Dietrich

Original Article

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Trump´s words were quite tame compared to some of LBJ´s remarks. Of course the dems overlook or rationalize them, it´s what they do.

It is a Durbin lie, like Dingy Harry´s lie about Romney.

OTOH, it is actually very accurate.

Dems need the sh**hole people to become lifetime welfare cases and vote Dem (legally or illegally, no diff) for the rest of their lives.

The plan to delegitimize & disrupt Trump continues from the Rats, while RINOs and Never Trumpers carry their water ... and the media chimes in (even Fox) for an unending litany of 24/7/365 criticism. The Rats´ intent to swamp America with "refugees" & "migrants" continues apace, for future Rat votes, IF republicans allow it. Watching the Durbins, Waters and Schumers go thru their motions of resistance reminds us a bit of Jimmy Stewart in "Mr Smith Goes to Washington" where he had to daily deal in THAT sh*thole cesspool with those corrupt snakes and fools. It´s much worse today when the Progressives aspire to dynastic power. Rats will do anything to bring non-elitist Trump down.

I don’t believe he said it but really it’s true. The dems are trying to turn our country into a s-hole country every day.
America is way to good to embrace all that’s has made it great. They want us to be like every other s-hole on earth. All in the interest of equality you know.

The faux outrage is a strategy to derail any meaningful change to our immigration policies and the vile democrats believe they have a winning strategy by calling the President a racist. Unfortunately, the Republicans are too cowardly to make them defend their anti-American immigration policies. The moral courage and determination shown by Republicans to put the democrats on defense is sorely lacking. They are cowards who will collapse into the fetal position anytime race is brought into any debate. Grow a backbone and defend the country! The democrats are on the wrong side of this issue, and if they are allowed to win this debate, the Republicans will lose it all. Stand up to these bullies or the country goes the way of Europe.

I´m more inclined to think libtards are having a fit because it exposes states that are libtard run as high tax, high regulations, high mommy dictates for the hell holes they are. Why do you think it´s the libtard run states like CA, NY, NJ, IL, MA, CT are the big winners when it comes to people moving out? The bonus to the rest of the nation is the hope that these states lose some more House seats, which is why we get the stupid federal laws and excessive wasteful spending that we do.

I’ve said this before here but it bears repeating...

PDT has been on the world stage for decades and has thousands of friends, acquaintances, employees, co-workers, etc. Not one of them ever claimed that he was a racist until he decided to run as a Republican.

The left plays the race card when they have nothing else in their deck.

The Left will generate hysterical outrage over ANYTHING that is true and threatens their agenda. Most of what they are incensed about is blatantly ridiculous and the more they repeat their "we are offended" act the more foolish they appear.

Trump spoke the truth about the situation, WHY don´t we seek immigration from well educated, useful to our society individuals rather than people that come here only for our welfare benefits or a place to have their children and lock in citizenship? Such, often permanently dependant people make reliable dem voters but are horrible for the country.

If the situation collapses, the dems have placed the noose around their own necks. They could accept a reasonable compromise but their only purpose is to undermine Trump. The LAW, as reinforced about decisions about DACA declaring it unconstitutional, is on Trump´s side. It is up to almost powerless dems to seek compromise. Instead, they seek an illusionary political advantage that will certainly hurt the people they claim to champion.

Trump´s job is to enforce the law. Law that could have been changed in the past by BO and dems to work things out. They did NOT do that. It wasn´t important to them.

Whether the president used that phrase or not (I doubt it though, since news of it is from Lyin´ Durbin). I have used it many times. To deny there are sh*thole countries is ridiculous, whether it´s PC or not. Sometimes bluntness is the best avenue.

The President has maneuvered them into a corner and this is all they have left!

The polls show that an overwhelming majority want the many aspects of the Immigration problem solved, and he´s put them front and center by publicizing that first meeting.

When it comes to the back room deals, he´s not playing along. He doesn´t have to! These career Jambones have never made a deal with their own money in their life, and when they come up against an in your face negotiator, all they can do is kick and scream like 5 year olds. This applies to both parties BTW, which is why the real crooks who play both sides of the fence are retiring!

When you look at it from this perspective its actually pretty entertaining!

We live in a time when every meeting can be recorded and every public or semi-public comment can be reported. The President does not moderate his words - his staff does not moderate their comments to the press - and fools still insist their opinion is the majority one because everyone they talk to agrees with them.

Well of course the Democrats are indignant, because they have in fact become "the Sh**hole Party". Their cities and their constituents resemble that accurate remark. And it exposes their strategy for future domination of all elections.

The Montecito mudslides are nothing compared to the Democrats´ attempted "sh**slide" over this whole country.

Poll every democrat and ask him if he would rather live in the United States or in Haiti and why. It would be interesting to see the foot shuffling and blinking as they tried to answer.

IMHO the only countries from which desireable immigrants can be found are India and China.

The Democrats consider every alien who gets into the USA to be a future potential Democrat voter and that is why the Democrats defend and protect illegal aliens and try to liberalize legal immigration at every turn to allow more poor, uneducated, unskilled, and socialist oriented foreign people to gain entry to the USA, and that is why the Democrats created the so-called Sanctuary Cities concept that has no lawful basis to protect even criminal illegal aliens from being arrested and deported.

That is also why the Democrats have been attempting to move the immigration law deportation goalposts to where only illegal aliens with known serious and violent felony criminal offenses would be subject to deportation, with the rest of the illegal alien population group, which could exceed 20 million foreign peoples, being able to stay in the USA, receive amnesty and eventually US voting rights with the vast percentage becoming Democrat voters. The Democrats therefore could care less fact that such an open borders public policy is bound to encourage more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration causing the future illegal alien population to grow exponentially, that would clearly be a recipe to turn the USA into a “S**thole” country. That’s the Democrat long-term Immigration game plan.

In the short-term the Democrats are scared to death that the Trump economic political agenda will succeed by providing jobs for a record number of normally Democrat voting minorities, with the Trump tax cuts pultting more money into their paychecks, which could result in a Democrat blowout in the upcoming November elections as without those minority votes the Democrats have no chance, that’s why they are calling Trump a racist.

I have to apologize to the world and especially Dick Durbin. I know a pitcher scout who used to work for the White Sox. Several years ago, Mrs. G2P and I got a personal tour of the stadium (new Kominsky Park) and even got to stand on the mound and walk the bases. Well, I called the south Chicago neighborhood across the freeway, where its citizens would fire small arms at the workers who built the new park, a s***hole. I´m so ashamed. I had no idea I was being a racist for calling a s***hole, a s***hole.

The Left’s modus operandi uses emotion as a means of accomplishment—stirs the emotions of the electorate, and voters and will flock to the polls to support the candidate or cause of their emotionally charged issue. The accusation against President Trump may well be designed to add to the arsenal of charges the Left is accumulating to stir the emotions of the electorate into believing that President Trump is unfit for office and that the 25th Amendment needs to be invoked to remove him from office.

There is another point to take from this article on diversity, the last four paragraphs touch on the subject.

Graham added that diversity is our strength, not a weakness, and that he is descended from immigrants from "s-hole" countries.

General George Casey: "...And as horrific as this tragedy (Fort Hood) was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that´s worse."

Robert Putnam, author of Bowling Alone, has retreated from his original contention that diversity is a strength. He reluctantly admitted that diversity has some serious drawbacks.

America was great when we accepted immigrants into a melting pot. When every person who came to our country wanted to change their outlook on life and become American.

Wouldn´t it be great if Trump suddenly pivoted and declared we are reinstating the melting pot, that the number one goal to be accepted is the ability to quickly assimilate to our culture, to become self-sufficient, to embrace capitalism!!

Our Commiecrats and NeverTrumpers act so offended because this generates confirmation bias that Trump is deplorable, racist, sexist and all the epithets Clinton put in her basket.

It seems to work because they Predict Nancy Pelosi as speaker in 2018 and Trump Approval is stuck at 39% and going nowhere.

The constant attacks work. Particularly sad is to have the National Review and Weekly Standard Constitutional Conservative Neocon Globalists now on the Democrat Party team. I left Weekly Standard when McCain ran, but National Review I subscribed for 25 years when they published the Against Trump issue under the ruinous administration of Rich Lowry and Jonah. Both turncoats are out there this weekend attacking President Donald Trump as a racist.

In August 2016, I wrote an editorial for The Post about “digital heroin,” where I compared the addictive potential of screens — video games, social media, smart phones — to that of a drug like heroin. The article hit a nerve. Six million views later, the term “digital heroin” has entered the popular culture. As someone who has worked on the front lines of treating the opioid epidemic, I wasn’t trying to make light of heroin and the scourge that kills 115 people a day.

On the eve of the release of the IG report, President Trump can be seen in relief against the backdrop of a year and a half of events. So can his enemies. The elite’s embrace of globalism has choked off recognition of ordinary Americans—those without a recognized grievance—in favor of the outer of the concentric circles of human relations: aliens and foreigners. Trump’s presidency—particularly in its rebellion against globalism—has brought distributive justice for these forgotten Americans and apoplexy to the elites. Magnanimity is the Aristotelean word ascribed to the habit of seeking a role in society—an office—which may

WINDSOR, England- African-American bishop Michael Curry electrified the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with a barnstorming sermon on the power of love that won smiles in the ancient British chapel and praise across the internet. Curry, the first black head of the Episcopal Church in the United States, started by quoting civil rights hero Dr Martin Luther King and powered on citing spirituals, medieval poetry and the experiences of slaves in the American south. “There’s power in love. Don’t underestimate it. Don’t even over-sentimentalise it ... If you don’t believe me, think about a time when you first

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy (D) said states can “be part of changing the culture that death is okay in the pursuit of some idealized idea about what the Constitution says.” Malloy said, “Let me give you a statistic about Texas. In 2016, the last verified figure, over 3,500 people in the state of Texas died as a result of gun violence. In my state, it was 172. Now, I understand they’ve got a bigger population, so let me break it down. 12.6 individuals lost their lives per 100,000. In my state, it was

There has been a spate of articles recently about white people calling the police against black people who were apparently doing nothing wrong, like sleeping in a common room in Yale, attempting to urinate in Starbucks, shopping at Nordstrom Rack, and playing on a golf course. The idea behind these articles is that white people are racist. The New York Times is even trying to fan this outrage by inviting readers to write them about times when minorities have been treated unjustly, to provide grist for future articles on the subject, in a piece entitled "Tell us about a time

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
