Trump Tweets Attack on Jeb Bush for ‘Speaking Mexican’


Donald Trump attacked Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Twitter by quoting a fan taking issue with the fact that Bush “speaks Mexican.”


First off, people don’t speak “Mexican”, they speak Spanish.

Second, the purely racist trope “you’re in America speak English” has been so overplayed by Republicans. Forget the fact that the United States has no official language, there is no requirement outside of lawyers to speak English. The reason why it is racist is because it makes an assumption that one language and culture is superior to another.

Finally, most of you can’t speak English yourselves so how can you push it on someone else?


Trump Calls Supporters Who Beat Latino Man “Passionate”

“Donald Trump was right,” the two men said, according to police, as they beat the man with a metal pipe and then urinated on him. “All these illegals need to be deported.”

When asked at a press conference earlier this week, Trump said that while he hadn’t heard about the Boston incident, it would “be a shame.” But he didn’t stop there, as he quickly went to applaud those who echo his views.

“I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate,” Trump said. “They love this country, they want this country to be great again.”

Trump later tweeted that the incident was “terrible” and in subsequent interviews claimed he “would never condone violence.”


Trump would never condoned violence?

This is just a few examples. We have an entire list.


Note: Personally I don’t quite care for The Young Turks program, they’re so partisan, but it is the only video I could find with the quote from Trump.


Farouk Systems Fires Trump

Farouk Systems joined the list of companies who fired Donald Trump over his comments about Mexicans during his announcement speech.

The Houston-based hair care product manufacturer withdrew sponsorship of Trump’s pageants. “Mr. Trump’s comments do not and will never reflect our company’s philosophy or practices,” said company CEO Basim Shami.


Some people may argue about “political correctness run amok” but Donald Trump’s comments were clearly racist. Companies do business with more than just white people.
