    Let’s hope that when all is said and done, Bernie (go Bernie!) and Hillary supporters will come together to prevent those nihilistic Republican candidates from grabbing that one last lever of power and blowing up the country.

    Unfortunately, I think many people are actually seeing the authoritarianism and liking it. They are afraid and angry, and they think an angry bully will help their fears go away.

    Your first statement is a complete non sequitur.

    As to your second statement, there are closer to 11 million undocumented immigrants total, and a great many are not Latinos, i.e., from the Philippines, India, South Korea, China, European and African countries, etc. Not to mention that the Latino population in the US is more than 50 million.

    And as to you “having no problem” with folks: you might start showing it by not jumping directly from Latino to illegal. Otherwise, the bigotry shines through nice a bright.

    I refer you to my post to jerryg. You might also be surprised to know that only a small proportion of Latinos are undocumented. The fact that you jump directly from “Latino” to “illegal” demonstrates a profound bigotry. Also, too, you seem to be equating criticism of Trump—a guy who’s never held public office—with not liking this country. Talk about buying into a cult of personality! This is the sort of thing that historians and political scientists talk about when they use the word fascism.

    Since Latinos who are registered to vote (i.e., citizens) overwhelmingly detest Trump, I can only suspect that you’re posting out of ignorance. Welp, there’s a little education for you.

    The Republicans who are currently (and formerly) running for president have, pretty much to a one, engaged in thuggish behavior. But it’s interesting that you get the vapors over this when you’ve tossed all sorts of broad-brush charges at “liberal progressives.”

    Question: Agrestic how are you able to read into my statement all the hate and bigotry you seem to believe was in the statement?

    Answer: Your demand for some undefined “assimilation”, for one. Your painting an entire community for the actions of a few, for another. The assertion that Europe is in danger of being culturally overrun, for a third. All of these are textbook examples of bigoted thinking. Sorry, but as Bruce Hornsby put it, that’s just the way it is.

    Oh, America’s Worst Sheriff Joe, here’s hoping you get tossed in the clinker for all the laws you done flouted. And it’d be great if you took Sarah and Donny along with ya.

    So you’re saying we should take out the actions of a few individuals on a whole community? By that logic, all white folks should be banned from national park and refuge lands because of Bundy & Co.

    As far as “assimilation,” what do you even mean? You’re just using really backwards language there. And seriously? You’re going to chalk it up to Shia vs. Sunni? I’ll bet you were saying the exact opposite in the late 70s.

    Oh, and the whole “ooo, scary, Europe’s way of life is going to disappear!” thing is just the old anti-immigrant rhetoric warmed over. People have been saying that about Latino and Asian immigrants to the US since, like, forever, and somehow the Superbowl is as popular as ever.

    Dancing with another straw man, I see. Who in the world has ever said what you claimed?
