You see, Trump is so racist that he will do things to benefit minorities to maintain the appearance of not being a racist in order to stay in power longer to enact more racism. Isn't it obvious. The buffoon is so stupid that he's playing 4d time cube chess to dupe everyone into thinking he's smart and not racist. It's a good thing we have Walt here to see through the facade and call Trump's racism out, since we are too partisan to see it for ourselves.

Symbolic gestures = hyper dimension chess only if you’ve never noticed every brain dead politician do symbolic gestures

 No it actually means Trump is racist because since he’s in a position of power to get a black man to come back to the state the obvious that means he’s just trying to get them back to his plantation /sarc

The ASAP Rocky thing is not complicated at all.  The one thing that is blindingly obvious about Trump is that he is very transactional. If you say nice things about Trump, he will return the favor, if you say something nasty, he will attack. Kanye is one of the few big name celebrities that has supported him.  Kanye and Kim K asked Trump to help out ASAP, so he did.  I don't think this is even about race, it's just Trump rewarding a friend and supporter with a favor.  That's how he rolls.

Kanye is one of the few entertainers that have supported Trump publicly.

 

Because it is career suicide to support any GOP candidate, much less big bad Orange Man, if you are a Hollywood entertainer.

 

Again, this goes back to the "What's real and what's reported?" idea. You bet your ass there's plenty of entertainers that support what Trump is doing, but to admit it would be to lose their only source of income. So why risk it?

This guy supports the democratic party pretty hard if anyone's been paying attention. 

 

And the DNC is currently okay with normalizing pedophilia. 

 

Big oof.

 

I normalize pederasts too.

I just prefer to "normalize" them with a length of stainless cable around the neck, from a limb of ~10' in height..

> Good morning. My fellow americans, this morning our nation is overcome with shock, horror, and sorrow.


> This weekend, more than 80 people were killed or wounded in two evil attacks. One saturday morning in El Paso, Texas, a wicked man went to a walmart store where families were shopping with their loved ones. He shot and murdered 20 people and injured 26 others, including precious little children. Then, in the early hours of sunday morning, Dayton, Ohio, another twisted monster opened fire on a crowded downtown street. He murdered nine people, including his own sister, and injured 27 others.


> The First Lady and i join all americans in praying and grieving for the victims, their families, and the survivors. We will stand by their side forever. We will never forget. These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities and attack upon our nation and a crime against all of humanity. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil, the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the bloodshed and the terror.

> Our hearts are shattered for every family whose parents, children, husbands and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives. America weeps for the fallen. We are a loving nation, and our children are entitled to grow up in a just, peaceful, and loving society. Together, we lock arms to shoulder the grief.


> We ask God in Heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer, and we vow to act with urgent resolve. I want to thank the many law enforcement personnel who responded to these atrocities with the extraordinary grace and courage of american heroes.

> I have spoken with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Ohio Gov. Mike Dewine as well as Mayor Demargo of El Paso, Texas, and Mayor of Dayton to express our profound sadness and unfailing support. Today, we also send the condolences of our nation to President Obrador of Mexico and all the people of Mexico for the loss of their citizens in the El Paso shooting. Terrible, terrible thing.

> I have also been in close contact with Attorney General Barr and F.B.I. Director Wray. Federal authorities are on the ground, and i have directed them to provide any and all assistance required, whatever is needed.


> The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate. In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in america. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul.

> We have asked the F.B.I. To identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism. Whatever they need. We must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and want dark acts. We must stop mass murders before they start. The internet, likewise, is used for human trafficking, illegal drug distribution, and so many other heinous crimes.

 

> The perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored. In the two decades since Columbine, our nation has watched with rising horror and dread as one mass shooting has followed another over and over again, decade after decade. We cannot allow ourselves to feel powerless. We can and will stop this evil contagion and that task, we must honor the sacred memory of those we have lost by acting as one people.

> Open wounds cannot heal if we are divided. We must seek real bipartisan solutions. We have to do that in a bipartisan manner that will truly make America safer and better for all.

> First, we must do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs. I am directing the Department of Justice to work in partnership with local, state, and federal agencies as well as social media companies to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike. As an example, the monster in the parkland high school in Florida had many red flags against him and yet, nobody took decisive action. Nobody did anything. Why not? 


> Second, we must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grizzly video games that are now commonplace. It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this, and it has to begin immediately. Cultural change is hard, but each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life. That's what we have to do.


> Third, we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment but, when necessary, involuntary confinement. Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.


> Fourth, we must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process. That is why i have called for red flag laws. Also known as extreme risk protection orders.
 
> Today, I'm also directing the Department of Justice to propose legislation, ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty, and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay. These are just a few of the areas of cooperation that we can pursue.


> I am open and ready to listen and discuss all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference. Republicans and democrats have proven that we can join together in a bipartisan fashion to address this plague. Last year, we enacted the stop school violence and fix nics act into law, providing grants to improve school safety and strengthening critical background checks for firearm purchases. 


> At my direction, the department of justice banned bump stocks last year. We prosecuted a record number of firearm offenses, but there's so much more that we have to do. Now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside. So destructive. And find the courage to answer hatred with unity, devotion, and love.


> Our future is in our control. America will rise to the challenge. We will always have and we always will win. The choice is ours and ours alone. It is not up to mentally ill monsters. It is up to us. If we are able to pass great legislation after all of these years, we will ensure that those who were attacked will not have died in vain.


> May God bless the memory of those who perished in Toledo. May God protect them. May God protect all of those from Texas to Ohio. May God bless the victims and their families. May God bless america. Thank you very much. Thank you.

As far as I can tell, he is only partially right.  Mass shootings did not decrease after the ban, but they certainly increased after the ban ended.

Or the definition was changed, to suit the desired narrative.

There is a trend in that graph that persists despite the AWB.

 

Try are trying to claim that the AWB saved lives by making the mass shootings less deadly, but the number of mass shootings has increased. Even if they are working on the same definition of "four or more people killed" or whatever it is, the increase in mass shooting deaths is far more attributable to an increase in the number of shootings, not just the lethality. The AWB wouldn't do anything to curb the number of shootings, and very little to curb the lethality if it had any effect at all. The graph above seems to imply that it didn't.

Also, can I pull a Sadiq Khan and say that mass shootings are just part of living in a free country.

 

But, as with feminism (and at this point I feel like it's directly tied to 3rd wave feminism), the libs wished for hedonism and another finger on the monkeys paw curled in. When your moral code is "do what feels good", some people who you have pushed into a corner by constantly vilifying them and blaming them for all the world's problems might decide that taking out revenge on society by shooting random people feels really good.

Yeah the media and left will spin this as something Trump had done, but it's typical bullshit by the propaganda arm of the Democrats.  I mean if you think the few times Trump and Epstein were together somehow is more substantial evidence than Clinton flying with Epstein 20 plus times and often without his SS detail, you're either naive, stupid, or have a raging case of TDS.  Maybe all three.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.
