    I figured we need a catch all thread since it's becoming a daily occurrence.

    Donald Trump Again Says He Saw Cheering in New Jersey on 9/11
    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/donald-trump-cheering-jersey-911/story?id=35355447

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump defended comments he made Saturday saying he saw thousands of people in Jersey City, New Jersey cheering when the World Trade Center was destroyed on September 11, 2001.

    "There were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey where you have large Arab populations,” he told George Stephanopoulos today on ABC’s “This Week.” "They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down. I know it might be not politically correct for you to talk about it, but there were people cheering as that building came down -- as those buildings came down, and that tells you something. It was well covered at the time."

    In response, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said Trump "has memory issues or willfully distorts the truth, either of which should be concerning for the Republican Party."

    "Trump is plain wrong, and he is shamefully politicizing an emotionally charged issue. No one in Jersey City cheered on September 11th," Fulop said. "We were actually among the first to provide responders to help in lower Manhattan. Trump needs to understand that Jersey City will not be part of his hate campaign."

    Trump first claimed to have seen the images of people cheering in New Jersey while speaking at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday.

    "I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down, and I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,” he said.

    While there were images of people cheering the towers’ collapse in parts of the Middle East, there is no record of such celebrations in New Jersey. There were some Internet rumors of Muslims celebrating the towers’ fall in Paterson, New Jersey, but those rumors were discounted by local police at the time.

    Donald Trump Approves Of Supporters Who 'Roughed Up' Protester
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-black-lives-matter-protester_5651ea96e4b0258edb31dd7e

    Donald Trump approves of the way his supporters responded to a Black Lives Matter protester, reportedly beating him during a Saturday rally in Birmingham, Alabama.

    "Maybe he should have been roughed up," Trump said during a Sunday morning call-in appearance on "Fox & Friends." "It was absolutely disgusting what he was doing."

    A CNN reporter captured video of the Saturday incident in which a protester was reportedly punched and kicked after he was tackled to the ground by attendees or security at Trump's rally. At least one onlooker yelled, "Don't choke him! Don't choke him!" according to The Washington Post.

    Trump is heard in the video yelling, "Get him the hell out of here!"

    Birmingham police removed three protesters following the episode and told The Huffington Post that no incident report was filed after the altercation.

    "The man you say was, I don't know, roughed up -- he was so obnoxious and so loud, he was screaming," Trump said Sunday. "I had 10,000 people in the room yesterday and this guy started screaming by himself."

    "This was not handled the way Bernie Sanders handled his problem, I will tell you," the Republican presidential hopeful added.

    In August, Black Lives Matters protesters commandeered the podium at a Seattle rally where Sanders was scheduled to speak. The incident prompted Sanders to both meet with prominent activists supportive of Black Lives Matter and release a racial justice platform.

    Protesters have been a common sight at Trump rallies. In October, a pro-immigration demonstrator was violently dragged out of a campaign rally in Florida.

    The Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment following the Saturday campaign stop.

    "This was a very obnoxious guy who was a troublemaker and he was looking to make trouble," Trump said Sunday, noting he didn't see the actual incident.

    Beating people up who act out of place, possibly pose a threat, and are simply inciting.

    Very fair.

    I see: it adds up to 200%, 100% for whites and 100% for blacks.

    And there are three categories: "KILLED BY BLACKS," "KILLED BY WHITES," "KILLED BY POLICE." Police are not black or white? :confused:

    100% (200%) of what?

    I'm not vouching the for the accuracy of the numbers but they are fairly easy to understand.

    There are only 2 categories. Black people killed and white people killed.

    Of all of the white people killed,

    81 percent were killed by Blacks
    16 percent were killed by Whites
    3 percent were killed by other(Asians)

    Of all the black people killed,

    97 percent were killed by blacks
    2 percent were killed by whites
    1 percent were killed by others

    Donald Trump is a bigot, a racist, a liar, and an idiot, amongst other things.


    He's got absolutely no business running this country. He'd end up setting us right back to the 1860's, essentially.

    It seems where I'm seeing "POLICE" you're seeing "other(Asians)."

    In reference to the reactionary tweet on the murder statistics:

    Donald Trump Tweets Fake, Racist And Wildly Inaccurate Murder Statistics

    Trump is a fascist. Period. He, in typical fascist tactics, is spreading lies about minorities and muslims in order to get out the vote of the mouth breathing stormfront white nationalist types that are supporting him.

    If anything, Trump is proving that racism and xenophobia is alive and well in America - and rampant as well.

    Unfortunatly it is alive and rampant all around the world. It is human (and animal) nature to be afraid of the unkown.
