Nothing has changed; conservatives have found new words to describe their same old bigotry. Sandy Rios a conservative radio host implied Democrats advocate for liberal policies, which include taking in immigrants whereby ushering in socialism. Of course, Rios goes on to say Americans won't vote for socialism, so the Left needs to bring in proponents of the cause.
And who is Sandy going to bring into her argument? None other than Barack Obama -- ranting that Obama's policies brought in immigrants galore, which of course, is not true. When Obama left office more immigrants returned to Mexico than arrived. Rios' objection has to do with the color of immigrants skin more so than anything else.
A spike in immigrants seeking refugee status from South America shows us the vicious drug cartels, who take people seeking refuge under false pretense. Cartels make people pay money to get close to the border, some reports of rape and mistreatment don't deter them from seeking a better life.
Now, we all agree there has to be a border. No one advocates for a borderless nation. Yet that's just what far rightwingers claim.
Since his State of The Union address where he first mentioned MS-13, Trump has made it his mission to associate the vile street gang to immigrants; thus, when you see illegal immigrants, you think of a violent gang. It's the same tactic George W. Bush used to make people associate Iraq with 9/11. They weren't connected, but Bush associated the two so-often over half of Americans believed Saddam personally had a role in the terrorist attack. He did not.
When Trump twice bombed Syria, he claimed it was because of the dead children. I doubt that. It was because of his daughter prodding him to do so. Donald has shown us time, and again, he has no compassion for Americans.

Simon Goldie: "The 'classical liberal' ideas of Adam Smith, John Locke, and others came to dominate Western democracies but by the early 20th century, the Liberal party was moving towards a more interventionist approach, and the Labour party was beginning to become a serious political force.
Lew Rockwell believes that 'classical liberalism' failed because liberals decided that ensuring liberty was not enough: if people were free but couldn't eat then, liberals should do something about this terrible situation."
Classical liberals tend to ignore racism, sexism & poverty as matters for individuals to help if they so desire. Again, limited government spending and the taxation is theft argument. Classical liberalism is modern day libertarianism mixed with conservatism.
This group also believes in ultimate free speech with no countering their claims. What do I mean? This nonsensical political activist group says any sensor of their free speech by response stifles free speech. Unless you are a white male, you cannot respond to critiques. And if you do counter their claims, you're a snowflake a radical collectivist leftist.
Free speech is the cornerstone of three thought and entering diverse opinions into the public square. Few people that I've met want to stop free speech. As we know from-time-to-time, at some college campuses, right-wingers purposely send controversial speakers to speak and some protestors come, which is unneeded; mixed in are some RIGHT-WING protestors PAID to disrupt the protests and inflame tensions cause violence whereby giving radical classical liberals the ability to call foul on the demonstrators, most of whom have good intentions of voicing their free speech.
Free speech doesn't mean you get the last word. Nor does it mean, that right or wrong, you get to decide your opponent's position. Classical liberals hold systematic racism does not exist. It's much ado about nothing. If only radical classical liberals could call blacks niggers, they wouldn't feel so oppressed. By the way, feel free to use your speech against minorities, my guess is you won't do that unless you're surrounded by security. Not that people should put their hands on radical classical liberals, but the point is, the only time responding to you with vitriol makes sense is when they're on a stage among sycophantic worshipers. These include confused millennials searching for their place in life no doubt, but hijacked by the radical classical liberal ideology as if it were fact or even right for society.
A large segment of End Times listeners believe everything Jim says, and that is dangerous because they continuously regurgitate certain false statements. However, MAGA folks won't accept the truth. Hiring people to kill Trump has not happened. Nor should it. But to say that as if it were fact is dangerous.

Equality of opportunity does not mean equal outcome, which is what conservatives claim it means.
The supposed All American company Harly Davidson is shipping jobs overseas. Although the revelation of the company getting tax cuts and shipping jobs away seemed a shock to the workers, because of what they were promised, should it surprise you that these corporations don't care about the people who build them?

Nutjob Coach Dave Daubenmire claims Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting married violated his rights because it was all a 'Psy Op.'
Daubenmire is a nut as far as I am concerned. If a couple wants a blended family, it's none of your damn business. You can go piss up a rope. You piece of garbage.
In the past, Daubenmire wondered if marrying another race was righteous or evil. He wasn't talking about same-sex marriage. Dave claims that interracial marriage is disgraceful. Now, does the Bible say that Christians cannot marry other ethnic groups? Of course not. But facts be damned to this idiot, who gives Christians a bad name. With a mass exodus of people leaving Christianity because of its judgemental attitude, this individual gives confirmation to those tired of judgment by the religious right. I wouldn't leave Christianity, but I am not conservative, or political evangelical.
After a school shooting the NRA blames everything from mental illnesses to lack of prayer in public school. Conservatives blame everything except guns. Blaming guns is a violation of the Second Amendment, they say.
Incoming @NRA President Oliver North says: "If school shield had been in place, far less likely that would have happened.

A conservative Christian opinion piece writer claimed the Palestinians do not belong in Israel. Because of course, to him, Palestinians are not people. Going into a deep dive of all the factors and nuanced claims of the Palestinian people is not the point of this piece. The false political debate over the "rightful owner of the land" is nonsense. The fight over the land for evangelicals is a faith claim, not so much a political one. In fact, most Christians could not point on a map to where modern-day Palestine is; because of course, the religious right claims the land belongs to Israel.
Israel is the eternal home of the Jewish people. The only Jewish state in the world. Arabs have 24 nations; the Jewish people have Israel. I understand the biblical claims to Jerusalem as a Jewish capital; however, a peace deal doesn't have to be either or; people have a right to a peaceful homeland of their own. Hamas, the government of the Palestinians, is seen as a terrorist organization. With Hamas, they are correct. It is a terrorist organization, but the people of Palestine are not all terrorists.
Palestinian Christians started the Falastin (Palestine) publication in 1911. In 1964, the Arabs, previously referred to as Palestinian Arabs, dropped the Arab distinction. During the British Mandate, the term 'Palestinian' described the Arabs living in the Jewish community. Even though residing there, Palestinians did not have a legal right to the land. Most surely the Jewish people have a right to a state. Their own nation.
Palestinians are an ethnonational group comprised of those born in modern-day Palestine. Palestinians are culturally and linguistically Arab.
Half of Palestinians live in historic Palestine in the area surrounding the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Israel, which constitutes half the population of the combined areas.
The Roman Procurator gave the land of Israel the name Palestine, some allege, because of his hatred of the Jewish people - to revise history and take away the Jewish ancestral historical ties to their homeland.
However, the Jewish people returned to modern-day Israel; changed to a state in 1948. However, ethnic-Palestinians, Arabs, remained in the region until around 700,000 thousand left after the 1967 War, in which Israel claimed even more land. After that, Palestinians returned to claim their personal belongings, some stayed; to this day, they're considered refugees and not the residence of a Palestinian state. The fight over Jerusalem, in which Eastern Jerselum would go to the Palestine and Western Jerselum would be the Jewish capital -- that all changed when the United States breached its long-standing broker of a peace negotiation ended with Jerseulum no longer in consideration as part of a Palestinian state. America clearly took sides, therefore, peace in the Middle East is almost impossible.
