    It is like the rules here. I can tell a poster his statements are lies ....but I get an infraction if I call him a liar.

    Trumps statements were not racist pure and simple. They might rise to the level of bigotry but I tend to even doubt that. They were singularly stupid and un-American and not fitting of the holder of our highest office and will no doubt cause some of his dumber supporters to do stupid things - as we’ve already seen.

    They’re all that but they aren’t racist.
    I agree Trump's remarks certainly were dumb and stupid. Now Trump feels he must respond to every bad word ever said about him. Create a new feud. A more political savvy or political wise, better political instincts would have ignored those four. They would have been nothing more than a humorous side show. Here and gone within a 24 hours news period.

    Trump's mouth or twitter is his own worst enemy. Yes, the word racist has been watered down to a point where it doesn't mean much. Whenever the word is used against someone nowadays, one always wonders if that someone just disagrees with the Democrats ideology or political point of view or is he really a very real racist.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You asked what other forums use this rule, I listed another one. The majority of modern forums, both digital and physical, are descended from very similar English institutions that first started cropping up in the early to mid 1700s, so you're naturally going to see a lot of similarities.

SO great a violation of House rules (which constitutes law), the black Democrat chair walked off to protest Pelosi going full anarchist renegade solely for the purpose of ranting personal insults against the President.
    Nancy Pelosi now openly is an anarchist, openly is abusing her power in direct violation of law, and openly spits on the rule of law as Speaker of the House. She has psychologically and morally lost it. She should resign - and be removed if she doesn't.
    Don't pretend like you have a problem with politicians abusing power. I've watched you extreme right wingers applaud it and cheer while the constitution is ignored. You clearly don't have a problem with the actions - only the person.

    Gee Biden admits to working well with racists. He even tried to block busing for those uppity colored. He has had several women complain about him feeling them up and was taped felling up a young girl. I would think someone with such high morals as you would be up in arms.

    Re: Should Pelosi resign?

    This is a good question. One part of me says yes she should because she doesn't have her party in order. The other part says no because she represents what a divided party looks like. The one thing that rings true is Pelosi has enemies within her own party that want to destroy her. The people running the Democrat party are AOC, her "Squad" (Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley), and AOC's manager (who runs all four of them). They're the Speakers of the House, not Pelosi. They represent EVERYTHING the Left stands for, and should be heard. Pelosi is simply a lackey, but even then, she's a good representation of what ineffectiveness is. So it's hard to say.
