    You completely missed the point of my post. It's miles away from what I said.

    Sloppy point I guess. Hitler tried to appeal to the masses based on data of high unemployment and poverty. Used that angle to manipulate people and make promises. Sounds like any election really. Then systematically oppressing and looting the Jews was a normal continuation of that obviously. Should've seen that coming from a mile away when he made campaign promises to people that wanted/needed change.

    You asked if you can be xenophobic if data supports your view.
    I gave you a good example how data can be manipulated by xenophobic person. I never compared trump to hitler, or his government to the Reich.
    Data doesn't make you a xenophobic person. Xenophobia basically derives from the sense that non-citizens pose some sort of threat to the recipients identity or their individual rights which is closely connected with the concept of nationalism. To this end a notion of citizenship can lead to xenophobia when it becomes apparent that the government does not guarantee protection of individual rights.

    As for people should have seen that from a mile away, one could argue that ideologies like "the idea of the people", the "idea of nationalism" the "greatness of a country" was suiting to the masses in Germany at that time. No education, poverty and desperation makes people comoletely vulnerable to manipulators, which is how hitler managed to gain power.

    So one could say people from really poor countries are more likely to be influenced by manipulators like terrorists, drug cartels, human traffickers, gangs, etc

    Probably would be better to dissuade immigration from countries like that

    You kidding, right? Your post is mindless drivel, unworthy of a response.

    In any event, I'm not going to bother debating with the resident white supremacist.

    You're not really capable of debate anyway, so not really worried about it.

    Trump didn't say "Haiti is a shithole country." Which, while vulgar, is not necessarily incorrect, and consistent with your post.

    He said "Why are we letting people from shithole countries come here?" which is focused on the people aspect, and what do the people of Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa have in common, in relation to Norway?
    I don't know Jim. What do the people of El Salvador have in common with the people of Africa? Please let me know. Serious question.

    So the whole Hijab cutting/Islamaphobia outcry in Toronto was one BIG hoax.

    On another note a local small business I would frequently support shut it doors permanently today.

    Can't think but our incompetent government both provincially and federally are culpable in each these scenarios.

    You can't possible be blaming the government for a kid's hoax.

    The Gov't deserves blame. Motion 103. It's all part of an agenda pushing this mandate.

    Kid or not I'm sure there are going to be people that use this to downplay the #metoo movement. Look how quickly everyone was to believe her... Even Trudeau said his piece. And why not... Why would a kid lie? They'll say the same thing about how quickly men are being eviscerated anytime a report comes out, without an investigation even happening.

    Yeah, I agree. Unfortunately, Trudeau and others would have been eviscerated had they stayed quiet until more was known too. Kind of a damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    God forbid the new story was about a 11 year getting raped by a refugee. Trudeau, Wynne et al. wouldn't be jumping to conclusions so fast. The narrative would be we need the facts and let the police do their jobs before I can comment.

    When does an alleged 11 year old victim of crime get paraded around by the media? Aren't there laws against that about showing their face, name etc? Really shameful actually but it all apart of the Trudeau liberals master plan that fits their narrative that whites are evil.

    So glad it backfired. Also, there should an investigation into the parents with all this. This situation really stinks.

    Trudeau and Wynne are such a disaster yet everyone is Trump, Trump, Trump.

    They way bigger mess is on our own soil.
