Putting one on ignore does not squelch speech or debate, it’s quiets the noise.

One key word in the Democrats rebuttal is very true and accurate as to Trump's speech - his use of playing up fear. Trump's 'speech' used every cliche used about immigrants for generations by playing up a few incidents of the fear of violent crime by them upon citizens to demand his 'wall'. Of course Trump ignores the real fears of violence of White Supremacists and racists but Democrats downplay the deadly violence mainly by and against citizens in Chicago, Baltimore and other cities where they dominate politics. A pox on both houses.


You claim Trump is “playing up fear” of immigrants which is deceptive because he only talked about violence by illegal immigrants and supports legal immigration. Then you claim he doesn’t mention “real fears” when it comes to violent crimes of white supremacists. Please compare stats of violent acts committed by illegal immigrants vs. white supremacists and explain why you feel the one with significantly less is real and the other has to be played up.


Look at the perpetrators of all the recent mass shootings, and you'll find your answer.

Why would you only look at the smallest subset of violent crime? That's truly odd. It's almost as if you are trying to distort things.

To be fair, I don't like when people fear monger. But I also don't like it when people try to cherry pick data.
