Reply Subj: Trump's endorsement of Britain First... puts the nail in this discussion.

Quote:Trump has crossed many lines, but every once in a while he goes too far. During the primaries, he said that the families of terrorists must be targeted for elimination. That's a blatant war crime. That was an enough for me, but the days ticked on and his endorsement of mass murder was largely forgotten.
Quote:Now he's president, and while he has engaged in generally abhorrent behavior by any serious metric of ethics and morality, he has generally remained within the boundaries of an ugly human being. Fine.
Quote:Then we get to this morning.
Quote:Today Trump endorsed Britain First, which are analogous to neo-Nazis in America. These people have been prosecuted for murder and other acts of anti-Muslim violence. These are the worst of the worst. They are a hate group. Trump thinks its appropriate, as the representative of America's credibility, to retweet videos designed to incite hatred and violence against an ethnic group.
Quote:The press secretary, Sanders -- paid by America's taxes -- said that it doesn't even matter if the Britain First videos are real or are designed to incite anti-Muslim violence -- that they hammer a message that Trump agrees with.
Quote:Trump is now officially and inextricably tied to a white nationalist hate group. And those who support him can no longer look the other way and be taken seriously as people who are not affiliated with this hateful ideology.
Quote:The line is drawn here. This far and no further.
A couple of points.
1. Agreeing with/Retweeting a video is not the same thing as an endorsement of the political party.
2. If a bad person* gives you good advice (and at this point I haven't seen the video so I am only guessing its content is 'beware of whats happening in Europe and don't make the same mistakes' )...its still good advice.
*As I said previously I'd never heard of Britain First until you mentioned it a few days ago (that's how small an organisation they are), so I know very little about them. I DO know that the party they spun out of the B.N.P. who were Far Right and often derided and mocked as Racist. Could just be a re-packaging/rebranding on their part, or an attempt by some to distance themselves from the BNP (likely the former). Either way the bottom line is that (as a political force) no one takes them seriously.
3. Obama DID actually endorse BLM (an organisation whose supporters have murdered people) and had its leaders visit the White House...so again more hypocrisy from the Left.
You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
