Trump—bullying, racist, obnoxious—is THE “Ugly American”

Kevin Barrett comments on Nigeria summoning the US ambassador over Trump's "shithole countries" slur


Press TV

Nigeria has summoned the U-S ambassador over profane language used by President Donald Trump against African immigrants. The Nigerian foreign ministry says the American envoy is expected to explain Trump’s use of a racist slur to describe African immigrants to the U-S. Trump’s recent graphic description of African nations, Haiti and El Salvador has stirred outcry inside and outside the U-S. The U-N, the African Union and several U-S politicians as well as rights groups condemned Trump’s innuendo which was made during a meeting with lawmakers at the White House. The U-S president has denied the derogatory remark saying he is not a racist. However, democratic senator Dick Durbin who was present at the meeting insists Trump repeated the vulgar comment.

  1. Not only this one, but the other ones you would like to pretend were not read or remembered.
    Racism is exclusion of people. Refusal to tolerate racist behavior is behavioral, not personal.
    Racist white America seeks acknowledgement. Trump gives it to them. I do not.
    Racist behavior creates animosity, and then the racist says, oh look they are racist too.
    It is the same as bombing peoples homes and schools, then calling those who defend themselves terrorists.
    This conversation did not start on this thread.

  2. The poem from the Statue of Liberty.

    New Colossus. Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
 A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame 
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
 Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand 
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
 The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she 
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, 
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

  3. Realists. Always telling me I’m the intolerant one. How dare I challenge inclusion of their racism.
    Somehow promoting civil rights and racial equality is just my own brand of exclusion and intolerance.
    What a crock. Copied and pasted from the white nationalists movement websites.

  4. Anyone who owns land or so called “real estate” in America has a deed, under various names like Grant Deed or Warranty Deed, etc., which is the “legal” “proof” of the chain of ownership from the previous owner and the previous owner to him and on down the line until at some point, the “first” deed should read, “stolen by illegal armed force from the American Indians”. This is why if you try to pin any lawyer down on the murky question of ownership of land, they always hedge because if lands were taken illegally by armed force at any point of the chain of ownership, every subsequent deed is defective and meaningless. Frankly the whole country was illegally taken (stolen) from the American Indians by deception, theft, lying, cheating, meaningless treaties and promises which have not been honored and on and on and on. America is not the land of the free and home of the brave but the land of lying, cheating, dishonorable thieves not unlike those today half way around the world in Israel who have done the same things on a smaller scale to the Palestinians and continue to do so this moment with impunity and even aid and help from the criminal U.S. Government today.

    • The real S…Hole of America and the world is Trump’s home town New York City, N.Y. Boycott this cesspool of America and the world. Avoid it like the plague. New York is where he learned all his evil deeds against others all his life as documented by the late Wayne Barrett, top investigative journalist in New York for over 30 years, and in the Wikipedia Article TrumpTower and many other articles.

    • Well, from a perspective of identifying racist culture, NYC is the least racist, and is called the sea of humanity.
      Rural areas are the almost always the most racist, simply due to lack of exposure. In NYC, it is people from all over the world. Other cities in NY are far less tolerant, like Buffalo and the western Republican district which was the first to support Trump. NYC is definitely not Trump supporter territory. It is the beacon of acceptance.
      “We do not tolerate persons who step on the necks of any oppressed”

  5. I often extend Branding help to those who seem to struggle with it. I think I would change Johnny America to Johnny White Privilege Colonist , not a financial decision mind you, just shooting for accuracy.
    Did you ever think to check, why the plaque comes with the statue in the harbor ? Maybe the idea is just ‘foreign to you”. I got some tobacco on the Rez the other day. There was a 2 inch square picture of an elderly Native American man near the register with the caption,
    ” Immigrants causing you a hard time ? That must be difficult “

  6. Johnny, you recently stated you and I could be great neighbors. I will tell you what my first reaction was.
    You are an apologist, and are ready to excuse repugnant behavior if it agrees with your own.
    The excuse is, everyone else believes it. That is not true. That is from living in isolation.
    In their eagerness to be accepted, racists have a trick they play on their own minds. They convince themselves everyone else feels the same way. And they just don’t say it. That miscalculation and ignorant viewpoint would surface within one hour, and a slow painful realization would set in. Your only option would be to sell and move. I would watch, but not help. A celebration would follow, attended by humans.
