Given our current political climate, VOTE is more important than ever. Kudos to Prof. Cramer for encouraging civilized debate about important policy issues. If we all stopped to think about the underlying assumptions of people who disagreed with us, maybe we could understand the positions of those who have different perspectives from us. That's what democracy demands -- especially today.
--Prof E Cohn, American University
Amy- we are honored to have you teach our students at PCC. Thank you for developing and teaching Vote to our community.
@Serena Simi: "his supporters may be good people but I don't know any good people who support Trump". This statement makes no sense. But I forgive you because I do realize that Liberalism is a mental disorder. I believe you'd show up at a Trump rally again and scream because that's what the Left is good at: causing chaos and making noise!
@Suzanne Longo: Thank you! He WAS a Trump supporter and an airman at DM. However, according to the Left, you can't be Black and be a Trump supporter at the same time. In fact, according to the Left, Black people are not supposed to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time without their help. They are the real racists!
@T.K. Morgan: What makes YOU think he CAN'T effect that kind of change? I'm from NY and I've seen what Donald Trump can accomplish. Donald Trump doesn't need to be president to have power. He's a billionaire for Christssakes! He could just as soon do nothing and sit back and continue to "benefit from the status quo". He's running for president for one reason--he loves his country and so do I. He's angry and disgusted at the direction this country is going in and so am I. I've learned throughout the years that people who are lying to you and don't give a damn tend to tell you what you WANT to hear. People who are telling the truth and care will tell you what you NEED to hear. I've read a couple of his books and his position papers and Trump is saying things that should have been said a long time ago and talking about doing things that should have been done a long time ago! Americans have been getting the short end of the stick from BOTH sides of the aisle for too long. After 8 years of a George Soros-backed Marxist who hates this country, its time for a change we call REALLY believe in. Political correctness is killing us and it has nothing to do with respect. It has to do with stripping us of our freedoms and our pride. The far left has divided us up into groups and pitted us against each other in order to destroy us from within. To hell with "diversity"--American unity is better. To hell with "tolerance"--mutual respect works better! It's time to take the hyphen out of "American" because its caused us nothing but problems. The Left has called Donald Trump (any anyone else who disagrees with them) all kinds of names but that's just what the Left does. The only thing necessary to be called a racist, sexist, xenophobe, etc., etc., etc., is to disagree with the accepted mindset of the "Progressive Empire". I tune that stuff out.
@Impulsenine: Inflicting themselves on the public at large, forcing their ideas down everyone else's throat, using guerrilla war tactics to shut down political rallies and anyone else who crosses them, name-calling, slandering, destroying the lives of anyone who disagree with them, keeping this country in a state of perpetual racial chaos--no, I'm glad I don't do that either. I leave that up to the "party of tolerance".
Does anybody know who the KKK lady was? It looks like this may also be a new angle. They claim to be supporting Hillary. Is that why they were there?
I, at the Trump rally merely to observe, walked through security with Mr. Sanders. He was nothing but polite going into the arena and was not to my knowledge accompanied by the KKK woman. From across the arena I also witnessed the assault upon Mr. sanders. Let's not keep blaming the victim for the horrible behavior exhibited by the perpetrator.
I was there, too. And, while it may have been a private event, Tucson taxpayers are shouldering the burden of the extra security required to host a monster at the TCC. Since ACTUALLY I am paying for the security at a "private event" you can shove it. I'd show up again. I'd get pulled off the floor again, and I will continue to scream the message that Trump is a dirty, disgusting, misogynist, racist, narcissistic, party flipper whose values are wholly "whatever it takes" to win the White House. His supporters may be good people, but I don't know any good people who support Trump. Kind of strange, right?
I'm just glad that people like LiberalFree2016 spend so much time on comment threads rather than inflicing themselves on the public at large. And please, please, spend as much time and effeort as you can responding to my comment.
He was sticking it in faces of many for at least an hour before this happened.
He kept poking, and he got poked. He deserved it. Crash a party, you may get crashed.
What on Earth leads you to believe Trump would be able to effect that kind of change? What makes you think that one of the very people who benefits from the status quo would be inclined to fight to change it?
Beyond that, the man is a vocally racist, sexist, classist, xenophobic narcissist who encourages his supporters to physically assault those who speak out against him.
He is a facist who would be incredibly dangerous if he had the power of the presidency, not to mention that he is a downright embarrassment to the US in the eyes of the world.
What makes them think he was struck by a Trump supporter? I heard from somebody that it was a black lives matter person that came to the event just to see and hear what was going on.
Can you imagine somebody doing that?
What I'd like to know is, exactly which of Donald Trump's policies do the Left have a problem with? Is it his streamlining of the tax brackets from seven to four? Or is it his tax policy that says if you're and individual making $25,000 or less or married making $50,000 you will pay no taxes? Is it his immigration policy? Let me ask a you lefties something. What would you do if you came home from work and found people you didn't know sitting in your living room demanding to stay? Would you go out and leave your door wide open? Then why should our country do it? NO other country puts up with that so why should America? Why should certain cities in this country be allowed to blatantly ignore immigration law? This is a serious national security issue that the Left refuses to address. In addition to the murder of Kate Steinle, Hispanic gangs made up of many who are in this country illegally have been killing random Black people in California for over a decade! Many areas that were predominantly Black in LA are now predominantly Hispanic and illegal! So, yea, as a proud Black American i want that wall! Does the Left have a problem with Donald Trump's plan to bring jobs back into this country? The loss of manufacturing jobs (as well as illegal immigration) has devastated the Black community and many other parts of this country so why would the Left be opposed to Donald Trump's plan to repatriate all that corporate cash that's overseas at a low 10% tax rate or his policy which lowers the corporate tax rate to make corporate inversions unnecessary and keep jobs here at home? Why are we protecting other countries and not getting anything out of it and losing our jobs due to so-called "free trade" policies? Donald Trump is talking sense and it seems that the Left can't stand it and the only weapon they have is to play the race card like they always do when they have no other argument. Well, I've erased the "R" word from my vocabulary because it had become meaningless. I'm an American, Black, a woman and I'm proud to be supporting Donald J. Trump for President of the United States!
This man has hate issues. He wants to hate everybody whose opinion is not the same as his. I don't want that kind of America.
This man is full of shit! I was at that rally and there were TWO people, Sanders AND a woman--BOTH in KKK masks! These people are NOT protesters! They're agitators and their goal is to go to Trump rallies, cause chaos and shout down Donald Trump! These Left-wing agitators are responsible for ALL the drama at Trump rallies. Also, since Trump is financing his own campaign, a Trump rally is basically a private event so Trump can have these agitators removed. Protesters have the right to peacefully protest outside but they DON'T have the right to disrupt the rally or try to shut it down! Also, the media has conveniently tried to downplay the fact that the Trump supporter involved in the fight was Black! I, too, am Black and a Trump supporter because his policies will truly benefit ALL Americans! I tune out the noise and I don't let the Left do my thinking for me! TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP IN 2016!
Thanks Brenna. Fun conversation. Here is more about the saguaro project: www.StandingwithSaguaros.org! Hope folks come out and participate.
Clean your yard.
Look.....no one even cares enough to respond to anything this loser racist has to say. Maybe both him and his demagogue Bernie Sanders should kills themselves also!!!! His feeble mind couldn't come up with anything better than provoking an African-American, who served and defended his country, with the KKK!!!!
Constant Con is constantly a great time. This is interesting banter to add to a comments section.
Remember, diversity means less white people, especially white men.
