Re: Trump

I expect a spike of attacks on minorities with Trump as president. Certain behaviours will be seen as legitimised. I would be worried if I were of an ethnic minority and lived in certain parts of America. I was going to put 'Muslim', but I don't really think the rise of the far right will care whether their victims are instead Sikh or Hindu. Knowledge of world events seems to be held in low regard with Trump's more vociferous supporters.

Re: Trump

That is a given. Look at how much attention was given to that recent torture incident in Chicago - I can see them basically fishing for such incidents where perpetrators are non-whites in the future, with even bigger distortion of facts, in order to raise the tensions. I'm afraid that mere spike of isolated attacks isn't the worst we're going to see before his presidency is over.

Re: Trump

It is troubling. The same sort of thing is happening in my country and across Europe. I dislike political correctness and don't identify as a liberal, but I have pretty much stopped expressing my views elsewhere because of the inevitable 'CUCKSJWLIBTARD' responses I received – hell, I sometimes get them on here from a certain poster. It probably doesn't help my other web communities are devoted to black metal, where white pride and ethnonationalism are the norm. Oh well, the music is great, and I can't hear what the hell is being sung.

How is an American perceiving Mexicans as a threat to western culture not ethnonationalism? It makes no geographical sense.

Why did you change your view on this? You used to defend it. I still think it's a good thing when used properly.

Re: Trump

My view didn't change. My definition changed. I now use 'political correctness' solely as a pejorative for a 'liberal' ideology being used to bully or stifle. That stuff always annoyed me. I just don't think it's as annoying as the rise of the far right and the eroding of my country's once great healthcare system by greedy monsters.

I still think reactions to the Lovecraft trophy being changed and other such private company decisions being seen as signs of 'Orwellian' authoritarianism from Obama (?) were overblown, silly and plain embarrassing for those involved.

Re: Trump

Trump has always been a friend of Israel; the nonsense of trying to link him to anti-semitism reveals these incidents of hysteria for what they are. I suspect it's if the liberals keep stirring up hate, it's Trump supporters that are going to be in physical danger, not minorities.
What garbage.

Re: Trump

Minorities have been and will be in danger for a long time. However much Trump likes Jews, emboldened white nationalists do not.

Hate directed towards Arab peoples, or towards people holding the book of islam sacred, is also anti-semitism. The term is a bit more...inclusive than often used.

Re: Trump

"Israel" and "Jews" are not the same thing, by any means. The far-right, despite being made up of anti-Semites, has long supported the Israeli government. Probably they just hate Muslims more than they do Jews and also have buddies making money off of selling arms to Israel.

Re: Trump

I know what you're saying, Brendan, but at the same time let me say I've never met an anti-Semite who didn't hate Israel as well.
Trump may be petty and reactive but I'd be amazed if he were an anti-Semite.

Some apparently want to accuse this guy of every nastiness in the book without providing plausible evidence.
