    Lets go spinning. I hear it is good exercise.
    Doc91478 wanted to try to start a race war and failed. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Got it.
    When Trump uses this type of rhetoric, you accused him for the mass shootings.
    It sounds like Mystal is a hateful bigot that likes to start trouble and divide the country. Can we blame her for the shootings of Steve Scalise? Why not.

    You are actually comparing the power and influence of the sitting President of the United States to a lone citizen?

    The takeaway for all parties is to avoid sweeping polemics based on remarks taken out of context.

    To @Doc91478's many critics: recall this thread the next time you find yourself waving your hands and talking about "dog whistles", "what he's really saying is...", etc., or deliberately omitting context to reason around what was actually said. You're not fooling anybody.

    Pep rallies sometimes sound like this. The terms got pretty violent in my high school if you take them literally.

    OK, but if one "fan" did take them literally, and commits an act of violence (citing one or more of those "terms"), are the leaders of the "pep rally" to be held accountable?
