BLADE BABE STRIKES AGAIN!!!
People on Twitter are obnoxious and there are idiots on there, but in the grand scope of things they're likely not representative of the every day person.
Those tweets are ridiculous, and yet par for the course for twitter more so than for "america".
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I posted the comments below earlier this morning on the first thread about this topic and see now that this thread has taken over for that one so I'll post my comments again here:
I didn't watch this "event" and I don't know anything about the young woman, but seems to me that this is just the result of political correctness run amok.
Personally, my heritage way back is partly English, partly Irish, and partly French, but no one in my family refers to themselves as hyphenated Canadians in any way, we're just Canadians. And it often bothers me, particularly as I get older and crankier, when people from other countries, less fortunate countries, take advantage of our national generousity to relocate here for a better life yet bring all their former country's problems and disputes with them, protesting on our streets for ills halfway around the world and push their cultural and religious traditions on the people who gave them a new life.
I'd be interested in knowing how often this young woman's Indian heritage was put on display during the pagent and the issue of her heritage was highlighted. If she was simply referred to as any other American, then the comments made would be inappropriate and uncalled for. If, however, she was promoted as Indian-American, I fully understand why people who are just plain Americans would be ticked off. I may not like it, but I fully understand it.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
