    Keeping in mind that the people on the other side are mostly people running away from horrific conditions and that they include a large number of women and children, it certainly is a remark that is thoughtless and wrong. It is not a harmless statement but one that is deragatory.
    We agree and I'm calling out posts that support the racism in Jr's comment by denying it.

    Maybe. They’ve already proven their contemptibility to most. Dumbazz comments like jr’s affirm the reasoning for that contempt.

    To some, it was a comment on the effectiveness of walls. To many, it was a not too subtle comparison of animals (a word Trump has used to describe immigrants) and immigrants. How you interpret it is based on perspective.

    Just like hearing the phrase "All Americans" and knowing that the person saying it is a racist.

    This is the delusion that grips the Never Trumpers. You are filled with anger and hate and you think that those that you hate also hate. That is the foundation of your delusion.

    Walls work. That's why there are so many of them. In my home, there are several. In the city of Indianapolis there are hundreds of thousands, probably millions of walls. In every floor plan I've ever seen, walls are drawn in.

    I'd be willing to bet that if you look away from your computer screen, you will see a wall from the place where you're sitting. Walls are only walls. Your anger and hate turns them into something else.

    If you interpret it by the rules of the English language, he was comparing walls to walls.

    If you compare it gripped by hate and bias as you are, then you see hate and bias.

    Hate and bias are very corrosive things to embrace. You may not understand this when you are poisoned by them.

    To me that means 82nd Airborne. No idea what you're crying about.

    You are filled with anger and hate and you think that those that you hate also hate.
    I don't support comparing brown people to zoo animals. You do.

    I don't support comparing brown people to zoo animals. You do.
    Why do you say that? Can you post the words that I said that actually support the lie that you post?

    When a person is filled with hate as you are, you think others hate as well.

    We don't hate others. We only why you do.

    You know you're at an internet debate website, right?

    100% wrong. Factually, jr’s tweet could be interpreted either way I described.

    Your apparent bias has obviously led you to accept the first interpretation I described. Hate and bias have corroded your ability to reason.

    I do know that.

    I also know that you're posting lies.

    You seem committed to supporting your hate and bias using lies.

    I am only wondering why you feel the need to do this.

    Funny thing... everyone says that about you and you say that about everyone. Weird, huh?
