Yeah, Trump wants to reduce immigration from the current insane levels, and therefore he hates Mexicans, Africans, Asians, etc.

Trump points out that Democratic leaders are doing a terrible job at improving places like Baltimore, and therefore he is racist against African-Americans.

Ergo, we have a bunch of mass shootings.

It makes perfect sense.

And when he points out that the fake news is actually a big part of the problem behind the mass shootings, he is 100% correct. The fake news won't acknowledge that our current immigration levels are insanely high; all they do is stoke the flames by pretending there is no problem and blaming Trump for seeing that there is a problem. Same with Baltimore.

Right, but I'm not just talking about the reaction but also the causes. If the mass media would acknowledge some of our real problems, rather than papering over them, then some of those sick white boys might not be driven over the edge, and in addition maybe some of the problems with the inner city would improve.

I'm not holding my breath, because as I've started way too many times, the mass media is beholden to big business, which profits off these problems rather than trying to solve them.

As my favorite example which again I've stated way too many times, high immigration rates drive the native white boys crazy, and they also hurt urban minorities by making their labor less valuable. However, big business loves high immigration rates, so the slave of big business, which is the mass media, keeps promoting it.

Carlsbad Caverns, ooh. I used to visit family in NM, and went to the caverns in the 80s for the mass bat exodus at dusk. Kind of scary.
Even Obama called out cancel culture last week and he was derided for it.

Luckily I still have my Permanent Portfolio book that MediumTex signed for me when I met up with him in Texas. Glad to see you're still kicking around MediumTex! Speaking of kicking, the wife and I are expecting our first child (a little girl) in December!

Awesome, Greg. Congrats to you and the wife!
Someday your daughter will look back and find the announcement of her upcoming birth in a Trump thread. O0
