Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

The Donald is getting some serious criticism from Retired General Hayden regarding his attacks on the press:

Retired general launches remarkable attack on Donald Trump: 'I have wasted 40 years of my life'

Quote:
'If this is who we are, I have wasted 40 years of my life,' says former intelligence chief
Remember everyone, Trump's press secretary has confirmed Generals are always right

Sarah Sanders: Itís ďhighly inappropriateĒ to question John Kelly ó because heís a general

These include:

VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!
VIDEO: Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!
VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!

Wait for the "My account was hacked" excuse ...

So it does not bother you, a Muslim beating up on a white boy with crutches? I saw that video last night, not on Britain First tho, it had been retweeted.

Will liberals be more upset about the content of a video of a Muslim being violent or the fact a Muslim was being violently aggressive?

Yes it does bother me but Britain First didn't share it because of that alone but as part of a 'look at what the Muslims do' series of videos that is then retweeted by the President of the United States. The message isn't so much condemning the act of violence itself but the religion of the perpetrator. That part is what bothers me. As well as giving someone from Britain First a retweet and exposure to millions of people.

You can be upset at both you know? It's not a binary choice.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

But the worldwide MSM that’s going in to another meltdown has a far reaching audience than Trump, so they are also complicit by sharing, the sharer of the sharer, yes, no?

Btw I don’t think he should have posted them, but I’m not falling out of my chair about it. I do hope that Dutch boy is ok though.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Strangely enough, the MSM reports on things the Leader of the Free World does, especially when he re-tweets Islamophobic hate messages from a far-right group*.

*as described in the Britain First twitter feed
Quote:
Donald Trump’s Twitter account just retweeted far right propaganda by Britain First’s deputy leader Jayda Fransen
Quote:
Donald Trump retweets Britain First deputy leader's Islamophobic posts
Quote:
Donald Trump retweets hate messages from Britain First deputy leader
The Dutch boy was beaten up by another dark haired Dutch boy, not a Muslim....

https://nos.nl/artikel/2205150-trump...lim-video.html

Translated
Quote:
The video appears to have originated in May and is from the Dutch site Dumpert. He is no longer there. According to weblog GeenStijl and De Telegraaf, the perpetrator was found and it turned out to be no Muslim or migrant at all.

Incidentally, Trump reticulated two other anti-Islam videos of Jayda Fransen this morning, who is vice-chairman of the extreme right-wing British group Britain First. Fransen was arrested in Northern Ireland earlier this month after insulting Muslims in a speech in Belfast.
I do believe that if Trump ate a small child, and the headlines were "Trump eats baby", some people would leap to his defence and state "it was a toddler, not a baby! - Fake News!"...

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

He's a clever bloke is that Mr Trump

He's put himself in the firing line, and succeeded in bringing 'anti muslim propaganda'* to the attention of every media outlet in the world.

It's being talked about, argued about, proved, disproven, lectured upon etc etc by all parties. If there was ever a surefire way to motivate people into discussing a topic, he's the master of it.

*not sure if that's a PC phrase or not?

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Statement from Downing Street 'its wrong what the President has done'. Bet that's scared him !
He really is a cretin and the biggest peddler of FAKE news going.
The murderer of Jo Cox shouted 'Britain First' before he killed her and he's retweeted them.
Really hope we tell him he's not welcome here and withdraw his backside licking invite.

So Radical Islamic Extremists chucking gays off buildings is a falsehood ?

As for condemning Trump, I did, if you bother to read an earlier post, I said I don't think he should have posted it!

It didn't, he's tweeted in the last half hour or so, telling May, not to focus on him and focus on the Radical Islamic Terrorism, in this Country.

I'd pretty much say with accuracy that Trump does not know who 'Britain First' is or who Jo Cox was, from what I see, he has basically been sloppy by retweeting one of his 45 followers. Ann Coulter, who he follows, originally retweeted the video posted on BF's Deputy Twitter page, 12 hours earlier than Trump did. He's basically seen her tweeter feed and retweeted it and not done any verification checks on the content posted.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

May tried to tone the line between criticising the tweets and not irratating Trump, doesn’t seem to have worked.

Yea, itís Fake News.

They were Muslim Brotherhood supporters murdering teenagers who had been celebrating the ousting of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi by the army in July 2013 - nothing to do with being gay. Two of the murderers were sentenced in 2014, one for life and one was executed.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

So to reiterate:

The President of the United States has retweeted Britain First videos, at least two of which are not that they were alleged to be. Then when Downing Street issued the mildest of rebukes to the President, suggesting retweeting a far-right British group is wrong, he attacks Downing Street rather than deleting the tweets.

We cannot trust this guy when it comes to doing a deal. He flies off the handle so easily and seems not to have any form of self-control.

The idea of the President promoting a group which split from the BNP because it saw it as too moderate would have been the stuff of dystopian fiction just a few years ago.
