Stu BS: Foul Mouthed trump! (134* d) RE: BS: Foul Mouthed trump! 14 Jan 18

:Your problem is you live in a cocoon, carefully fed a massaged narrative concerning events outside your own count"

You know nothing about me, don't know where I've been or what I've seen.

I know I've spent 18 years on this forum and know a troll when I see one, and you are one Iains. Not since Martin Gibson has there been such a shameless poltroon. You post that crap to justify racism and then feign sophistication and insight when called out on it. You're talking shit and can't disguise that, you posted nastiness disguised and you are still talking it up.

"Unless one has travelled and seen for oneself the deprivation in, say, Africa, one can't comment on what sort of countries are found there."

Ridiculous argument; you have to have been to Mars to comment on the chemical composition of the Martian soil? Have to have travelled to the Mesozoic to be able to comment on the skin colouration of a dinosaur? The only way to be able to review and interpret evidence is to gather it first hand? You live by that rule do you? How the fuck do you know the moon isn't made of cheese?

The countries Trump insulted are full of wonderful, resourceful and intelligent people who are forging a new future out from under the colonial jackboot; the same jackboot that produces the sort of shite that Rappoport wrote in Iain's link, poorly constructed posts reeking of condescension and white superiority. The very idea that some idiot right-wing journo in the US understands the needs of the people in these countries and is telling them in such a manner is staggeringly arrogant; that's white entitlement right there. Of course there are massive problems, but saying these countries are shitholes and then supporting that is disingenuous, insulting, ignorant and racist. I'll take my cue from those Trump and Iains insult, as the people from those countries are not so chuffed to hear them described as shitholes. Read the article again. Understand the subtext.

Let these people win or thunder against them. Support posts linking to that sort of nastiness and you become part of the problem, abandoning reason and decency to kowtow to someone who only wants to drive division and hatred.
