Trump Defends Calling Latino Gang Members - Animals'

There are 50 comments on the Bloomberg story from May 23, 2018, titled Trump Defends Calling Latino Gang Members - Animals'. In it, Bloomberg reports that:

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a roundtable discussion on immigration at Morrelly Homeland Security Center in Bethpage, New York, May 23. Donald Trump recounted violent crimes committed by the predominantly Latino gang MS-13 in graphic detail at a meeting in Long Island on Wednesday, and defended his description of the group's members as "animals." He also said his administration is developing a plan to cut foreign aid to an unnamed country that he said is encouraging its citizens to migrate to the U.S. denigrating immigrants, especially those who are undocumented, and was criticized once again after a meeting with law enforcement officials at the White House last week.

"The media-created 'animals' scandal is already coming back to bite the Democrats, whose criticism of President Trump has ended up sounding an awful lot like a defense of the most notorious gang in the country, MS-13. Never one to pass up an opportunity to troll his opponents, Trump dropped an anti-Democrat MS-13 comment during his speech at the pro-life event hosted by the Susan B. Anthony List on Tuesday....Trump's Pelosi comment was in reference to a virtue-signaling mini-lecture by Pelosi last week in which she mischaracterized Trump's criticism of criminal illegal immigrants, particularly MS-13 members, as being a criticism of all 'undocumented immigrants', despite the transcripts of Trump's comments showing that he did not say that and multiple media outlets having already admitted to falsely reporting his remarks. In the rant, Pelosi chided Trump for not seeing the 'spark of divinity' within all people, presumably including murderous MS-13 gang members." ---James Barrett, 23 May 2018

MSN says MS-13 started as an advocate group for migrants. Such stories are why fewer and fewer people trust the mega-corporate mainstream media monopoly.

I guess the mainstream media could not get away with saying that Trump said illegal immigrants were animals so now they are saying he said all "Latino" gang members are animals.

He said MS-13. They are animals and Trump really doesn't like them Nobody likes them!

All gang members are animals but this is fake news.

How come MS-13 hasn't been cleaned up yet with all the surveillance being pushed on the public? Is everyone ok with all the domestic spying going on between big tech and government on the domestic public -that's you. Take for instance a story that was on KFI in Los Angeles this morning about facial recognition.

So the hosts were talking about the fact that when you walk into a big box store there is now facial recognition software scanning everyone without their permission.

Police departments are now also using this software apparently donated to them by invasive tech companies like Amazon (but you know most likely Google, Apple and Facebook as well) so they can track everyone in live time as well.

Handle points out that this could be, a little out of control, but that since he's not doing anything wrong he has nothing to worry about and you shouldn't be worried either. And also, they do this all the time in England and people just accept it so move along.

Hey, Mr. Mieskeit in the morning, you are always saying you came from a family of Holocaust survivors that fled to Brazil. Do you know what Hitler would have done with this kind of facial recognition software if he decided to round up Jews or anyone else with it that complained about what he was doing? Your family would have most likely never made it out. I'm sure he would think that was funny.

This technology is fine, till one day you get a tyrannical deep state in control, like for instance the one America almost had under Hillary Clinton, and the one currently running mainland China.

The mainland Chinese government (not to be confused with regular Chinese people) are the biggest pushers of facial recognition, drone technology and internet tracking in the world. They use it to track what people are doing at stores, on the street, in people's homes, etc. But they go further.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Credit_S...

They then coordinate with what you do on social media and flag people who complain about government abuse or criticism. Currently, they give everyone a social media score based on how "good" a citizen they are. The more control and tyranny you accept the better your ranking and social score.

The better the slave you are, the more privalges you get. The more you complain about human rights abuses (never mind civil rights abuses) the lower score you get.

Those with bad social scores are being targeted to not be able to have a job or board an airplane and they are also getting banned from the internet or having their internet blocked.

China is now talking about cutting off peoples ability to use digital currency if a person is not a good digitlal citizen -aka slave. Since China is doing away with physical currency you could say they have blocked the abliity to buy or sell. Sound familiar in biblical terms?

See, unlike that infowars piece which explains what is going on and how it is bad, that news story on KFI and other mainstream media is put there to condition people to accept tyrany. Don't question if it. Don't ask if it violates the 4th ammendmant by treating everyone like a criminal until proven innocent. Just don't let it bother you, watch the baseball game, the football game, the soccer game -oooh look at the ball go.

Did the public get to have a discussion about this? Were we told this was going on? No, they thought they'd just slip that one by like the street corner cameras after 9/11 and get us to accept it later through media conditioning.

What we need are some serous lawsuits and then a technological bill of rights. This is where the ACLU could have a field day and get the public behind them for a worthy cause. This technology is a double edge sword. It's good because it keeps people safe by catching criminals. It's bad because it could be used by big business or uncsrupuloous individuals to round up people some day that are not good "citizens."

I mean, If you get some rogue elements in your local police department with this technology they can target anyone they like without impunity. They may also not stop to think that another government agency or even tech workerss at big tech companies could be looking over their shoulders analyzing ther inividual habbits and everyday personal transgressions. It goes on and on.

When you think about, just about anyone will be able to be blackmailed in the future -and that's not right and will lead to a Stasi environment. What we are all going to be watching each other now? It's ridiculous that it could get this far without being addressed en masse by congress.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stasi

So where does this all this lead? Are we going to get nailed on our future social credit score if we talk about not wanting homeless all over the place in our cities next. Or if we don'like illegal aliens living off our tax dollars. How about if we don't agree with a gas tax that was just buffaloed on us without a vote. It all depends on who is running the show and how much tyrany people are willing to accept.

It's great that Donald Trump was elected. His getting spied on by the deep state and them trying to overturn his election was a blessing in disguise because he just recieved an education on how out of hand this issue has become in the supposed land of the free.

Let's see if Donald Trump has time to break up some of the tech monopolies out there and get this country to have a better way of dealing with technology, privacy and freedom in the future. The 4th amendment needs to be applied to all this new technology. We should not be turned into some 3rd world technological banana republic, dressed up like a first world country.

That's your real news topic for the day. Don't look for this discussed in the LA Times or mainstream media, they have a royal wedding to cover.

Certain tech workers and government contractors can tune into people's homes now through smart tv mics, cell phones, school Chromebooks/Ipads, as if the were cable channels.

Their favorite channels are last names, not channels anymore. The joke's on you.

It's the best reality TV money can't buy. Talk radio gets a lot of its trending topics/news stories from "tips" passed onto them by friends -little dork contractors- listening in.

If mainstream media talked about this, they might actually get some ratings.

The stuff is out of control. The lawsuits should just start flying all over the place.

Why does the free press discourage people from expressing themselves freely, by coming down on them for what they say?
Why does the free press promote censorship, ironically enough?

Why should I care if the free press is silenced, when leftists have been using political correctness to get people punished for decades?
Why should I care, if they disclose information that endangers my own life and diminishes my own freedom?
Why is a free press this holy cow, necessarily a good thing for its own sake?
Why should I buy this line without question anymore?

Furthermore, why should I care if the free press is silenced when I do not feel that my life is improved or enhanced in any way by what they do...when their sympathies lie with people who I consider my enemies (illegal aliens, cop killers, etc.)?

Why should words be more shocking than incredibly violent, bloody actions?
Why don't the media and their crack teams of investigative reporters ever show the shocking crime photos of what these animals do to people?

It is perfectly okay to disagree with the positions taken by the press. But it is quite another story to brand it as fake news or some other whacko conspiracy.

Most news is not opinion pieces, but rather reporting of events. Reporters work very hard to get us the news, sometimes putting their own lives in danger. To believe that they all have it in for Trump is paranoid.

America's freedom of the press has not been tested this severely in modern history. We have an irresponsible madman in The White House who has succeeded in getting a sizable minority of Americans to believe his "fake news" nonsense. Trump's fake news is any news he doesn't agree with. His supporters are being manipulated by a con man who has no respect for our country's freedoms, and is causing great pain and suffering on his way to trampling America.

A free press is critical to our freedoms and to a democracy. It is a basic foundational part of a free country, telling the people what they need to know. Otherwise we are at the mercy of dictators, who tell us what they want us to believe. If the press seems to lean politically one way or another, it is because the facts take it in that direction. News people work much too hard to just flim-flam the public.

As to your assertions about leftists, you would need to be more specific in order for me to understand them.

You say you don't care if a free press is silenced. You'd be sorry if that ever happened.
