PLAIN RHETORIC AND PURE LIES

Donald Trump — the post-truth 2016 candidate

by CHUCK TODD, MARK MURRAY and CARRIE DANN

We’ve been around the political block long enough to know that almost all presidential candidates exaggerate, dissemble, take statements out of context and, yes, lie.

But from the start of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign (remember Mexican rapists?), he has taken this to a level we haven’t seen before in American politics.

Consider just these two examples from the weekend.

First, Trump said on Saturday in Alabama:

“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering.”

In fact, as the New York Times writes, “No news reports exist of people cheering in the streets, and both police officials and the mayor of Jersey City have said that it did not happen. An Internet rumor about people cheering in the streets, which said it was in Paterson, not Jersey City, has been denied numerous times by city and police officials.” But when ABC pressed Trump on his statement, he stood his ground.

“It did happen. I saw it … It was on television. I saw it.”

Second, Trump retweeted a graphic claiming — falsely — that African Americans are responsible for the killing of most blacks and whites in America. “That is not true, the Washington Post notes. “According to data from the FBI, most whites are killed by whites, as most blacks are killed by blacks.

There’s an obvious reason for that: Most people are killed by someone they know.”

I do not get it. I simply don’t. It’s not even a matter of which political party anyone is affiliated with or which beliefs anyone holds. I grew up in Puerto Rico, a colony of the United States but never the less “US land”. I was brought up thinking how great the US was …. as a country, as a leader, as an example to the world.

I cannot believe what I’m seeing and hearing now.

Any human with decreased number of brain cells can get what this “person” is doing and saying. There are no limits to his “statements”, nothing is off limits. He’s raised the “idiocy bar” so high that the other presidential hopefuls have no other option but to go along or even come back with more asinine statements. If they don’t, they will be left in his dust.

It’s true … this man isn’t an embarassment of this country. He’s an indictment of it.

I pity the United States of America.

(And I am an American citizen)

SYRIAN REFUGEES

Refugees of the Syrian Civil War, widely referred to as the Syrian refugees, are Syrian nationals, who have fled Syria with the escalation of the Syrian Civil War.

To escape the violence, more than four million Syrian refugees have fled the country to neighboring Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq, while thousands also ended up in more distant countries of the Caucasus, the Persian Gulf, North Africa and Europe. As of February 2015, Turkey has become the world’s biggest refugee hosting country with 2.1 million Syrian refugees and had spent more than US$6 billion on direct assistance to refugees.

To start the day …. “Migrant or Refugee? …. Straight to the point”!!

MIGRANT VERSUS REFUGEE

MIGRANT

1. An organism, especially an animal, that moves from one region to another (as for breeding) or that has established itself in an area where it previously did not exist.
2. An itinerant worker who travels from one area to another in search of work.
3. A person who leaves one country to settle permanently in another; an immigrant.

REFUGEE

A refugee, in contrast to a migrant, is according to the Geneva Convention on Refugees applied to a person who is outside their home country of citizenship because they have well-founded grounds for fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and is unable to obtain sanctuary from their home country or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country; or in the case of not having a nationality and being outside their country of former habitual residence as a result of such event, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to their country of former habitual residence. Such a person may be called an “asylum seeker” until considered with the status of “refugee” by the Contracting State where they formally make a claim for sanctuary or right of asylum.

Migrants move willingly. Refugees are forced to move.

Why would anyone, settled in their lives, willingly leave their place of birth?

This is the place where their family roots were established. Leaving behind their possessions, their friends, their families … all that is familiar to them.

Only a narrow minded person would think that refugees are willingly exposing themselves, their families and their children to the dangers of escaping from their homes.

Do they have homes left or have they been bombed persistently and destroyed?

Their panoramic view is one of crumbled buildings, torn up roads, no schools, hospitals or markets.

Imagine … just try to imagine.

They have nothing left but themselves and their families.

What other option to they have?

Damn if you stay .. persecution, torture, abuse, rape, slavery.

Damn if they leave … displacement, danger, exposure, uncertainty.

They have to run an leave. And what greets them?

More of the same.

They are considered pariahs and are persecuted much more.

They are unwanted, they are a burden.

We need to keep in mind how this “mass migration” started.

What is happening to humanity?

What’s The Difference Between A Refugee And A Migrant?

~Published on Sep 8, 2015~

Refugees or migrants?

A lot of words get thrown around to describe the thousands of people leaving their countries for Europe.

But are they “refugees” or “migrants”?
