I guess we can add Cher to the list of Xenophobic Racists. She went full Trump mode in this tweet even including bomb, knife emojis.

Polling indicates a majority of Americans (~60-65% if memory serves me right) are at odds with the President on the issue of admitting Syrian refugees at all.

For me personally I think we should have a pause to make sure we are on sure-footing on our security screening. Then families go to the front of the line.

I'm not an extremist like Cher who wants to send them back to ISIS.

That is...yeah. Wow. I'm seriously hoping that's some sort of attempt to mock Trump's attitude or something, 'cause otherwise....

(And so...many...emojis...)

*Shrugs* Well, I'm not in that percentage, I can say that much.

If the people of Paris, on the very night in which their city was under siege and they had yet to catch all the terrorists involved in said attack, were willing to open the doors to their own homes to complete strangers as a means of keeping them safe, knowing full well the potential risk of doing such a thing, then call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure our country can manage to open its entire freaking borders to let refugees in and help keep them safe. Letting immigrants onto our shores is kind of our thing, after all.

I don't think Cher has a particularly coherent political stance, it's just alphabet cereal.

You guys think this op-ed is too optimistic?


Quote:
As the revolutions interact, they are accelerating the emergence of a new America. Consider that nearly 40 percent of New York City’s residents are foreign-born, with Chinese the second-largest group behind Dominicans. The foreign-born make up nearly 40 percent of Los Angeles’s residents and 58 percent of Miami’s. A majority of U.S. households are headed by unmarried people, and, in cities, 40 percent of households include only a single person. Church attendance is in decline, and non-religious seculars now outnumbermainline Protestants. Three-quarters of working-age women are in the labor force, and two-thirds of women are the breadwinners or co-breadwinners of their households. The proportion of racial minorities is approaching 40 percent, but blowing up all projections are the 15 percent of new marriages that are interracial. People are moving from the suburbs to the cities. And in the past five years, two-thirds of millennial college graduates have settled in the 50 largest cities, transforming them.

The author has a point, but he's a Democratic pollster, so of course he's biased.

If he becomes President, I'm leaving the country. Don't know where I'll go, but I don't want to live in a place where racism rules. The world keeps going forward yet America is taking steps back.

I'm not sure there is sufficient evidence for this. And wherever you choose to go (going to assume a predominantly English speaking country), you're not going to find anywhere devoid of racism, I'm sorry to say.

Now we've just left him with a lethal level of self-delusion so he can go and humiliate himself in front of foreign audiences for fun.

I'm sure he's cruising for an honourary goblet from some Dutch thinktank.

You have a knack for skirting the subject.

Cher?! Really?!

Actually the only unbiased poll numbers I've seen have it around 52%.

Have you done any real research on the screening process? Do you know how many agencies and interviews they go through?

You can't imagine a former SoS as president? I find that difficult a thought to struggle with.

I think what you meant to say is that you "don't want a president Hilary Clinton." Because imagining it isn't so outlandish.

Cher sounds like she wants to be Trump's VP. She's as qualified as he is. She's "honest" like he is.

You're right. It will just be hugely disappointing if Trump becomes president.
