Immigrants "below animals" according to Trump.

in trump •  6 months ago

People defending Trump referring to immigrants as “below animals” need to read “The Banality of Evil.”

Yes, he and Sheriff Eichmann were conflating immigrants with violent criminals. Violent American criminals, but who’s counting, right?

That’s the kind of rhetoric that Nazis used about Jews. It’s the kind the KKK uses. It’s the kind of rhetoric the Hutu used about the Tutsi. It’s blood libel. It’s the kind of rhetoric that dehumanizes people.

What did you think it sounds like? This is the face of evil. It’s your neighbours, it’s your family, and it’s many of you. It’s not Thanos.

Are you referring to his "animal" comment 2 weeks ago? Or are you talking about something newer here? @honeybee

That's right.

I am not here to defend him as he has had some pretty stupid or nasty things... but to be fair, it was extremely clear that he was talking about MS-13 gang members where the motto is "rape, control, kill". I think the liberals were just totally take a phase out of context and then magnify it to the general public, which I do not think that is fair news reporting at all.

Yup, and it is so blatant if you bother to watch the clip unedited of him speaking, if this guy is so terrible why do they have to make up shit and be so disingenuous to try to make him look bad?

exactly.

Specifically talking about MS13 members here, NOT immigrants in general, or even illegal immigrants...just the MS13 gang members who chop up people w machetes and what-not who dehumanized their victims. If you listen to the entire round table discussion that is evident. Why all this protection and pampering of vicious criminal behavior? WTF is happening? #freetommy

The best way to prevent things like this is that little flag to the right. Simply flag posts that are blatantly false.

In context it sounded like he was referring to MS-13 members, not immigrants as animals.
