I do not endorse Trump. What I do endorse is thinking and clear analysis. The day Trump announced his candidacy on June 16th, 2015, was the day the media began exposing its aversion to clear analysis and thinking. Let’s examine Trump’s seemingly controversial statement, that he still to this day, nearly a year later, is labeled a “racist” for.
Each statement that requires the reader to dig further and inform themselves on will be provided with a link for you to click on in this article. Please take the time to read through each one, to get a sense of what Trump meant when he made this statement. Anything in [brackets] is something I added, to add commentary or make room for additional links. All of the links are from mainstream, leftist media groups, except one long, in-depth piece by Breitbart going into gruesome details that other publications refuse to.
Then, please share this article with anyone you know who calls Trump a “racist” and believes he is divisive, a joke, an idiot, etc. This isn’t meant to convince anyone to vote for someone, it’s meant to bring the discourse back to clear, calm, rational discussion about major issues.
“When Mexico (meaning the Mexican Government) sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you (pointing to the audience). They’re not sending you (pointing again). They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us.
They’re bringing crime. [This topic is not white and black. But lack of proper government statistics and ignoring the crimes committed by people who have no legal right to be in the country, who have already deported many times is wrong.]
And some, I assume, are good people! [Keep in mind, Trump is talking about a group entirely composed of criminals knowingly entering a country illegally, and acknowledging that some must be nice people.]
But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. [This statement reminds us he is speaking about illegal immigrants, and not all Mexicans, like many outlets have spun it by cutting this part out.]
And it only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast.”
What are your thoughts on his speech now? Leave a comment below, and don’t forget to share this with someone who could be steered back on the path of discussing these issues without calling people “racists” for wanting to talk about them.
