Well, one of them is dead of a drug overdose. Not sure about the other.

If Trump does not take firm and decisive action to curb these evil groups it will be more evidence that the UN should consider sanctions against the US.  If any other nation was practicing race based travel restrictions, threating military action including nuclear against other nations, not acting to stop racist clashes and groups etc or even encouraging them they would have sanctions imposed immediately.

I wish it was possible to let those morons throwing nazi salutes experience a concentration camp for a few days. These people really need to have their brains washed.

Never going to happen. US has veto in security council. As do China, Russia, France and the U.K., which is why it's practically impossible to get anything done.

Do you mean NK? If so, I disagree. Whatever Trump has said, the other side has been saying it for decades.

He is also threatening Venezuela. What makes the threats that NK are doing worse than the threats US are doing? Has NK flown long range bomber to the US or sent a large fleet to US waters, has Venezuela threatened the US with military action?

I still disagree. While Trump is the worst possible idiot to be POTUS, or anything else for that matter,. NK is 100% NK's doing. He is allowed to break nuclear armemnt rules, sign agreements, then back put or break them to get food and oil, then when his military might continues to grow, and gets more sanctions he raises that the sanctions that he caused are acts of war. No comparison. Its not a Trump issue, that's not his bandwagon, its NK's.

Its all nothing new....racism is as old as civilisation is and will never be removed. It can and should be controlled/legislated but will always be present. What is new is social media and the real media feeding the frenzy on top of an insane POTUS.

 

 

That's not true - and in any case pessimistic / defeatist.

 

Evil leaders have long known the potential to garner support by identifying a "common enemy", racism is a consequence of tribalism.

 

It didn't take social media to incite or provoke or aggravate racism either.  There's nothing new in Trump's actions - it's all very much early 20th century.

I am not saying I agree with North Korea, I don't their actions are very dangerous. However I see the actions of the US as being just as dangerous. The US has the attitude that they are above all else and the rules do not apply. They threaten and bully whom ever does not agree with them or whom ever they disagree with including internal policies. If for arguments sake New Zealand was acting in the way that the US is we would have sanctions applied against us.

 

A question I ask why is OK for the US to have stockpiled greater than 4,000 nuclear war heads and more than 1,400 deployed nuclear war heads?

"The Mooch" seems to have a dislike for "alt-president" Bannon.

 

 

“I’ve never sat down with Steve Bannon and said, ‘Hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?’ But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable”

He seems to be off cocaine in that interview - much less excitable than we've seen.

And Russia to take over Crimea. And I think Russia has a few more than the US. I agree about the bullying, aka Iraq re WMD that was actually oil and so on. The US arent as dangerous as NK. Nor do they take over countries willy nilly as Russia will do, they are lining up Belarus as what will be a friendly annexation. We could leave NK alone to keep on arming and testing, and leave Venezuela alone so that more get killed by yet another dictatorship, and so on. None of these are Trump issues which is what is my point

There's a *very* long list of countries all over Central and South America, Asia and the Middle East that would respectfully like to disagree...

freitasm: What is new is a POTUS that enables these racist movements. The fact he does not immediately repudiate these is telling what we need to know about him.
