LOL! You object to the use of the terms "racist" and "xenophobe" in response to a racist and xenophobic rant titled "Why do liberals care more about illegal immigrants?" Perhaps this will help:

rac·ist
/ˈrāsəst/
noun
noun: racist; plural noun: racists
1.
a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
synonyms:
racial bigot, racialist, xenophobe, chauvinist, (racially) discriminatory, racialist, prejudiced, bigoted, biased, intolerant, illiberal;
adjective
1.
showing or feeling discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or believing that a particular race is superior to another.

xen·o·phobe
/ˈzenəˌfōb,ˈzēnəˌfōb/
noun
noun: xenophobe; plural noun: xenophobes
a person having a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries.

Did you even read the OP?


Yes I did read the OP. I'm glad you mentioned it. Because it seemed like you were judging an OP by its title alone. It seems it's liberals who focus on race when it comes to illegal aliens. I believe (hypothetically speaking of course) if we shared a border with countries where the population was mostly white, like the Balkans, the OP would be asking the same question.

As for xenophobia, having a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries, what about all the liberal posters from other countries trashing America and Americans? Have you expressed any objection to that?

Have any liberals or democrats called Bill Clinton a racist of xenophobe for his strong words about the problem of illegal aliens? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnOpGI0qRhA

The left goes on and on about race and using terms like "brown people" far more than anyone else. Insisting that the problem of illegal aliens is based on skin color. And plenty of people think it's done for the sake of political posturing.

Not much apparently considering the US receives approximately 1,000,000 legal immigrants per year for an approximate total of 37,000,000.

Why did you liberals go apeshit about those two kids who died at the border but you ignore the hundreds American citizens being killed by illegal immigrants? Why do you care more about illegal immigrants than American citizens? That's treasonous.

Is it possible for you to respond without criticizing Trump? I don't think so.

It isn't a matter of necessarily caring about potentially dangerous illegal immigrants, but a matter of actually observing what they do. You just can't prove that illegal immigrants always commit without proper, consistent evidence suggesting that. Evidence in this case is objective, not subjective.

Your own POTUS asked why America couldn't have more immigrants from places like Norway (white/blonde) & has a decades long history of racism and discrimination.

Americans trash America. Others just observe & comment on it. https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... t-shutdown

Maybe it's because your current WH administration & most of the republican party are white supremacists. Just a thought. Maaaaaybe, just maybe, that could be why people comment on it.

I don’t believe most of the Republican Party consists of white supremacists.

The ones that aren't are guilty by association. They have the option of denouncing that BS and leaving the party - but they stay, which means that at the very least they condone it.

So all democrats are by association anti gun, violent protests since the protesters are democrats. Those who aren’t can just leave the democrat party but they don’t.

Everything you say can the turned right back at democrats and any politics party.
Hopefully this shows you how Unfair what you say is.

Again it's the left that goes on and on about race. Them basing things on skin color. I doubt he would have picked Serbia because it has a mostly white population.

Are you saying it is?

And if so, were you saying that before 2016, or did they magically appear afterwords?

Just because a propaganda agenda claims something is true, doesn't mean that it is. One has to consider the source making the claim.

I knew they were around, but Trump really brought them out into the public eye. Obama did too, I guess a black man in the white house made them lose their minds.
