DONALD TRUMP AND BARACK OBAMA HELD TO TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT STANDARDS
|| By FITSNEWS || Billionaire real estate mogul and 2016 “Republican” presidential candidate Donald Trump has been milking the furor over his controversial statements regarding Mexican immigrants … burnishing his credentials as a leading opponent of illegal immigration and crony capitalist trade deals.
Now he’s got a new angle to exploit: The double standard employed by the nation’s “politically correct” police in manufacturing outrage.
In his 2016 presidential announcement last month, Trump caused a furor when he said that Mexico wasn’t sending its “best” people to America.
“They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump said.
Predictably, mass revulsion ensued … including a decision by New York-based Univision (the world’s largest Spanish language network) to ban the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants co-owned by Trump. Additionally a Univision executive – Alberto Ciurana – responded by likening Trump to 21-year-old white supremacist Dylann Storm Roof, the confessed perpetrator of last month’s “Holy City Massacre” in which nine black South Carolinians were murdered in their place of worship.
NBC Universal also severed its ties to Trump’s organization.
It was the classic P.C. blackball …
Fast forward to this week, when U.S. president Barack Obama attended a town hall event in Nashville, Tennessee.
“We should not be encouraging illegal immigration,” Obama said.
Wait … what?
All this president has done is encourage illegal immigration.
“What we should be doing is setting up a smart legal immigration system that doesn’t separate families but does focus on making sure that people who are dangerous, people who are, you know, gang-bangers, who are criminals that we’re deporting as quickly as possible,” Obama continued.
Hold up … gang-bangers? Criminals?
Obama basically said the same thing Trump did – albeit with a mild filter (something Trump clearly doesn’t have).
Of course depending on how you define “gang-banger,” Obama’s statement could be interpreted by some as being worse than what Trump said.
Yet while Trump is pilloried, there’s zero outrage against Obama.
Selective application of the politically correctness, that’s what.
In case you’ve forgotten, we live in a world where what we are allowed to say depends on who we are … not the unavoidable, unpleasant realities of our shared experience.
That’s a shame.
Well duh, Political Correctness by it’s very nature is selective.
Silencing those who dissent from the politically correct and aren’t willing to “go along to get along” pervades the culture in ways that go well beyond politics. Christians are bullied and forced off college campuses in the name of “tolerance” when Christian religious organizations limit membership to those who share their religious beliefs. Conservative commencement speakers are cancelled because students, often with encouragement by their professors, won’t listen to contrary views.
Political Correctness on the left has evolved into destroying Christianity and the church.That is really the agenda of the gay marriage advocates.
Someone pointed me to a link here the other day showing TV Land has cancelled the “Dukes of Hazard”. John Schneider has some good commentary surrounding that stupidity, but the short of it is that in our new pussified, PC society, no one is allowed to dare utter anything that may offend someone.
On one hand, I can see the argument that government should not be offending any tax paying citizen on any terms, like the Confederate flag for example, because it’s supposedly supposed to represent the “will of the people.”
Fine, I’m ok with that…but now this issue has grown way beyond a flag on “publicly owned” property.
Now this PC madness is spreading into private life. Don’t get me wrong, if TV Land really thinks that a goofy show featuring Southern boys driving around in a Dodge Charger with a rebel flag painted on top has affected their bottom line, they have every right to cancel the show.(and for the record, I LOVED the Dukes of Hazzard as a kid)
I actually joked about this thinking such a thing would never happen almost two weeks ago in the comment section, bitching about all the flag stories and made up a scenario where a “Big Foot” monster truck drove over the General Lee.
I made that story up, because it was so stupid/ludicrous at the time I never dreamed it would actually happen.
That is my fault, I continually underestimate the stupidity of society in general. I’m like Charlie Brown.
Copy and paste. Copy and paste. LMAO!!
“in our new pussified, PC society, no one is allowed to dare utter anything that may offend someone” ………. exactly!
Best-time working I looked at the draft which said [email protected]
Don’t matter to me. TV Land went down the shitter years ago just like the “History Channel” and cancelation of “Speedvision”
I’ve cut back on premium channels on DirecTV and will probably end the subscription in a year or two when ‘smart TV’ really jells.
“Without the midfilter”…FITS says. That filter is EVERYthing.
Obama and his cronies are all fucked up. Because of them and Congress, America has become all fucked up. Among tens of millions, they are brewing hate for them all. Trump pisses them off because he speaks the harsh truth. They simply can’t stand to have someone smear it in their faces that they are … well … “fucked up.” Trump even once said that Obama should be in prison. If he gets elected, will his attorney general bring indictments against Obama for all of his crimes? I think so.
HELENA, Mont. — A Montana man said Wednesday that he was inspired by last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage to apply for a marriage license so that he can legally wed his second wife.
Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage. Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy — holding multiple marriage licenses — but Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.
“It’s about marriage equality,” Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday. “You can’t have this without polygamy.”
And so it begins.
If they all stay married for 10 years and then divorce, are they entitled to some of his Social Security benefits too X two??? The system can handle this exponential development.
I’m the definition of fucked up. LMAO!!! LMAO!!!
Could it be that all Cockroaches are not created equal
Naw, all the little sons of bitches are the same
You are correct.Not many of em are about faith,family and country.MOST are about me,money and party. Good post.
This morning I “faxed” a memo to Mr. Trump allowing him to use my copyrighted tags for Lil’ Benito, Billary, and including the other creatures in their nests, together with their knee-walking followers as piss-ants, cockroaches and vermin, as appropriately necessary. My legal advisors have contacted his legal advisors to assure Mr. Trump that I will not be making any financial demands regarding the use of these identifying terms .
Why would you allow Trump to elevate the status of Hillary supporters by calling them piss-ants, cock-a-roaches, and vermin.
Those labels are too kind, something a Hillary supporter might call their friends.
One reason is because Mr. Trump gave me documented proof that the night of January 29, 1993 was the last time Hillary got “faxed”…….
Yeah, but she has been “faxing” us since then.
Was that inauguration(or close) day for the Clinton’s?
Yes + yes —- you are alert this morning// the date is the “night before” the inauguration… you get the drift!
In the meantime, this gives Trumps comments (in their entirety) some legs: http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2015-07-01.html
The conservative FARM BUREAU and its corporate-ag owners wants illegal immigration and they know how to agitate and bribe to keep it coming.
Illegal immigration has NOTHING to do with jobs…just as the Civil War was NOT about freeing the slaves.
Progressives hate America. They hate the success it has enjoyed economically, militarily, and culturally. They want what America has without having to work for it; they just want to take it. What better way to destroy America than to turn into a mirror image of the rest of the world? An image of corruption, violence, and conquest.Obama is attempting to crowd out the American culture of self-reliance and the rule of law with the culture of gang violence of Central America dependent on the federal government.
Yes, what a better way to destroy America than illegal immigration.
Conservative business interests want massive immigration of the poor and desperate, to exploit.
Exactly. Never underestimate good old fashioned greed. Lower labor costs as low as possible. Who cares if the immigrants don’t wash their hands? Enjoy your salad!
Trump’s “And some, I assume, are good people,” is clearly an after thought. It’s a bit of over kill,but…
“… burnishing his credentials as a leading opponent of illegal immigration and crony capitalist trade deals.”
… tarnishing his credentials as a responsible opponent of illegal immigration and a his childish reactions to criticism and difficulties.
This site has nothing to worry about. I’m sure the Friends-of-Obama love the work FITSNews does on the major issues. You hate the same people they hate. And you result in Democrats being elected. You will never be throttled electronically by Obama’s FCC, or have your IRS files manipulated. You are one of theirs. You are anointed by the elitist class.
“burnishing his credentials as a leading opponent of illegal immigration and crony capitalist trade deals.”
And Trump’s poll numbers have improved. And so did Obama’s, after he put out his Democrat version of the same speech. Obama’s hypocrisy is only overshadowed by his ego and ineffectiveness.
What’s wrong with a good old fashioned gang bang?
Trump is a racist homophobe. I am glad that the corporations are deciding to cease to do business with him. He is just a rich oligarch like the Bush clan, typical Republican. He showed his true colors when he made racists comments about the wonderfully productive Meixcan nationals who are colonizing the South. Who is going to do the work on your golf courses Trump? The South is just getting what it deserves for taking up arms against the United States over 155 years ago. They should be an occupied country for promoting white oppression. Trump wants to bring back the Confederacy! He must not be allowed to get the nomination over Jeb!
