    'Never again means close the camps': Jews protest ICE across the country

    Trump called out by some Christians for using ‘Lord’s name in vain’ at fiery NC rally

    Data show America’s future is more “squad” than “send her back”

    Trump is “hitting on the rawest nerve in American politics and American history,” said Whit Ayres, a Republican strategist who advises southern Congressional politicians.
    ...
    An American telling another they should “go back” to where they came from is textbook racism. A US government manual that defines illegal discrimination actually uses the phrase as an example.
    ...
    After Trump’s attacks, minorities across the US began sharing their own stories of when they were told to “go back to where you came from.”

    The insult was hurled at Texas state representative Armando Walle when he campaigned in 2008, he told the Texas Tribune. David Nakamura, a White House correspondent, was heckled with “Go back to China” while playing sports as a kid in Virginia (his father is Japanese-American). Ami Mistry, a second-generation Indian American, was told to “go back to Iraq” during the 1991 Gulf War, she told the Los Angeles Times.
    ...
    The racist tweets might be the “worst thing he’s ever done,” one GOP advisor told the normally pro-Trump Washington Examiner.
    ...
    The percentage of Americans who think immigration is good for the country is also on the rise, despite the constant drumbeats from the White House and Fox News about its ills:
    ...
    Based on these numbers, Trump’s racist rhetoric is hastening a collective awakening. He may be energizing some of his base with his attacks, but he’s also energizing those that reject them.
    ...
    About 56% of Americans say Trump has made race relations in the US worse, and 58% believe since he was elected it has become more common for people to express racist or racially insensitive views, a Pew poll conducted earlier this year found.

    Even before his latest attacks, sizable majorities of Americans said they found Trump’s divisive remarks confusing, embarrassing, and exhausting.

    It's adorable how the fundies got their panties in a twist over Trump using "the lord's name in vain". Who did they think they got in bed with? It's sad that after everything, that is what crosses the line?

    Yes!!! People are getting how very evil he is. If there is an anti-Christ, he is it. I would bet that the 2020 elections will elect a Democrat. Yea!!

    The "antichrist" is supposed to be intelligent and charismatic. Trump would be the low-level minion that scrubs the AC's toilet.

    The Jesus they believe in says, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, but tell your non-white neighbor to go back to their ****hole country." Jesucans. Republicans for Jesus. The "other" Christians.

    No one person will bring "world peace", but what does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

    What? What do you mean will bring world peace? Is that Revelation? As far as I know, the anti-Christ doesn't bring world peace, Jesus does.

    I guess I should have looked to see that you were a Christian before I answered LOL.

    Well I am a Christian. Though I wouldn't want that to effect your decision. I just wanted your opinion is all, there is no "right or wrong answer" that I wanted to debate about.
