    Glad we sorted this out and is now clear to me with no subjectively grey areas.

    Data supporting xenophobia. This reminds me hitler. In the very beginning of his, let's call it, mandate he first started to appeal to the masses that unemployment was high (which it was) poverty was high (which it was) and that he solemnly promised he would give each German a house, a car and a job. He accomplished that, by takin from the jews. Data supported him on that, and he was a xenophobic asshole.

    What I'm saying is that, data can be manipulated to accommodate your views.

    It's not a secret that many people are xenophobic and if the all mighty president which is a representative of the nation, says it's OK to be xenophobic, there is something seriously wrong with education in that country.

    That was just an example of data manipulation. Hitler was a brilliant manipulator.
    You can see other data manipulations also for example in economics. The use of percentage is another manipulation factor of data.

    Saying 20% of 10 people is not that much. But 20% of a million that is a big number and politians often use those to justify their policies.

    If you want another xenophobic example I also have one. Not too long ago the financial minister of the EU said the south countries spend all their money in wine and women. He also plainly said he didn't see the wrong i that argument. You know why? Because he wasn't born in a South country.

    But anyway, not to drift away, I just find it funny many people in the states justifying trumps behavior.

    It should always be close to mind. You don't think another Hitler type will become the leader of a powerful country again?

    At some point, sure. But to tie it in as they were was silly. I know you have a flair for the dramatic as well

    Trump would fit in quite well in Nazi Germany. It a very good thing the US has a strong system of checks and balances.

    You are absurd. It wasn't an OMG Trump is Hitler analogy; it was an example of manipulating data for nefarious reasons.

    I hope you're an organ donor. I think your brain needs to be studied by science.

    I mean, how you made that equivalence when it is completely different to what Trump said is hard to understand. As for opinions being in the distinct minority, I know that virtuous morons such as yourself bang pots and pans and think it means you're in the majority because of the amount of noise you make, but in reality most people don't really care and find people like you insufferable.

    So for you to refuse debate because in your mind the issue is already settled is so deliciously delusional.

    I didn't take it as an OMF Franky. It's just a stupid point implying analyzing data and catering to it is some kind of indicator of how a regime can become horrific. It's actually how the world works and businesses run every day
