The text in bold is what is usually edited out.

You think this incites hate, I don't.

In a time when factions of radical Islam have declared war on the West, I do not think it is unreasonable to stop and make sure all is being done to keep them from entering a Western country.
If you actually think he ever intends to reopen the borders after they "figure out what's going on" you're insanely gullible right in Trump's target demographic.

Which leads us back to Sandy. The floods were worsened by higher seas. The high tides are higher than they would have been decades ago. Global warming didn't make Sandy. It didn't steer Sandy into the shore. It did, however, make the flooding worse. Debating this would be just dumb.
Right before landfall Sandy was transitioning (no pun intended) from a Hurricane fueled by warmer water to an extra-tropical cyclone fueled by cold air driving on the western flank and surging warm air on the east. It would take a booth review to figure out weather it crossed the goaline of the Cape May County coastline as a hurricane before becoming technically a non-hurricane. The blocking high caused it to slow and maximized the onshore flow into areas north of the eye from AC to Long Island. Most Hurricanes near NJ/NY are moving too fast as they are caught up in the westerlies and the jet stream to generate a huge surge. Sandy was a anomaly, making a near perpendicular landfall into Jersey.

As far as rising sea levels making it worse, I'm not sure what level of rise over time we are talking about. From what I've understood we have see a rise of a couple inches over the past 100 years. Adding 2 inches to a 6-12 foot surge is hardly noticeable. Especially considering most coastal construction in the Mid-Atlantic was undertaken in the last century.

Ummm you may want to do a little more research. Actually a lot... But seriously, that's not what this thread is about. Can we stop talking climate change and discuss the bastions of liberalism, the killing of free speech, and how education is evil?

"One woman Hamid spoke with in line remarked that she 'didn't look scary,' but 'like a good one'."

Jesus Christ - spoken probably by the exact kind of person who would claim not to be racist on account of having a Black acquaintance. There's a silver lining in Hamid's ejection, I suppose, in that she wasn't attacked while in the crowd.

I would still like to know why she was escorted out as the video didn't really explain that. Other than perhaps it was because she was standing up when everyone else was sitting down? It would be one thing if she was yelling or whatever, but simply being in attendance is not a reason to be thrown out of the event.

"After Hamid and three others, all wearing stars reminiscent of those worn by Jews during the Holocaust, were escorted out by police and Trump campaign officials, Trump commented on the disturbance.

"There is hatred against us that is unbelievable," Trump said. "It's their hatred, it's not our hatred.""

I stumbled on this article today and I found it relevant to some of the points made in this thread, and something I've been saying for awhile. A culture of ignorance is exactly what is causing the huge riff between our so called leaders in Washington today. It's exactly why we're debating science or if immigration should be limited by religion in the year 2016. There's a large section of our society pulling the rest of the country down, retarding it's growth. It has nothing to do with intelligence or religion. It's where you fall on that spectrum from egocentric to world centric, from pre-modern to post-modern and beyond. The egocentric pre-modern folks may or may not be the minority(I'd like to believe they are), but they're extremely loud because they are losing control, and they are afraid.

Political Correctness

Anyone wanna take a crack at defending this, or at defending the legions who *did* take a crack at defending this?
