I can't remember. I've used it to describe some towns in the UK though. Laughing

I'm not sure really. There seems to be a lot of asylum seekers coming from there, so perhaps it is.

I probably use that term a few times a.week. It could be directed towards a home, a neighborhood, a city or a country.

London is amasing and so is Paris

I grew up in London and still have family and friends that live there.

What this is a case of, is people born into a wealth nation.

The answer to how they can then see other places as shit holes is two fold

They have no conception of what its like to really struggle, where they take everything for granted and they clearly have been spoilt by the fact they were born in a wealthy nation.

Now this country was certainly a shithole in the 19th  century.

To say its a shitholes is clearly more about how and who they dislike living in an area.

Which really makes those people clearly very xenophobic

Same here. I even refer to myself as a "shit state" if I feel I look rough.
But then, I'm not the president of a country who wishes to be taken seriously. So.....

Paris is just fine. A friend and her family spent The Christmas and New Period there with her cousin. They had a fabulous time. I was extremely jealous seeing her pictures. The markets looked amazing as did the ones they took walking Christmas Eve along the Seine.

I don't think calling a place a "shithole" in itself, is racist but it's stupid if you want to be taken seriously as a the ruler of a country.

He shouldn't have said It, but it was said in private. Dick Durbin is a whiney little bitch. He would probably cry if he posted on this forum. Smile

If he can't say it in public then he probably shouldn't say it all.

we've all agreed we use the term and that it's appropriate description of some places

why should he be a pc robot, especially off camera. is he expected not to be human like the rest of us then?


one of the reasons people voted for him was for daring to say things that other people wont

having just watched him on an interview, it wouldnt surprise me if he intended for that remark to come out

he always seems to have a plan and an end game

he's thinking of cancelling press conferences

That's not true. I'm a real estate appraiser and consultant. If you were to call me on the phone and we had a working relationship, I may describe a certain part of town as a shithole. If you want an actual report prepared for people to make a business decision off of, you won't find a word like that on it. We use phrases like "economically depressed compared to the regional average". Cool

I've no problem with an outspoken president at all as long as he stands up and owns it in public and isn't afraid to use it when he talks about white trash areas in America too.
Personally, if you run a country you should choose and use your words very wisely and that doesn't mean you can't be honest.

So why do you think people agree with his constant prejudice?

Is it because they are constantly led by fear?

prejudice?

do you mean calling a shithole a shithole?


''led by fear'' seems to be a standard quote for you but many men and women of all ages, backgrounds and colours support him so i guess you would have to ask them why they agree with him

How is it a shithole?

Is this based on how and why you are lucky to be born into a wealthy nation?

Prejudice comes from fear and to say people coming from shithole countries, is born from a prejudice and fear.

It seems that Americans forget, they are only there due to people fleeing poverty in Europe and enslaving Africans, asians fleeing poverty and violence etc

So why say the word shithole?

It gives a view the whole country is horrible, which is just plain bollocks

I am sure you did find his views based on fear and prejudice great.

I watched it, as you had already posted it.

Now do you want me to debate him or you.

This is what makes me laugh about you

Its okay in your book to be demaning about a country or place ect, but its a major crime if a I rightly reason and prove someone is being racist.

You need to make your mind up over free speech

no need to get so emotional and sensitive about it. i just asked you

it's not a major crime if you call someone a racist. FFS! didge, grow up

all i said was that you should have a bit more to offer than that, but as i said if you're not capable of it then so be it

1) lol, more misdirection

2) It seems to be to you. As you take it as such an offense. I mean you claim that all arguments are valid, which i reasoned was absolute bollocks. So at the end of the day, dont cry over spilt milk, when people hit back at such poor views.

3) So you think I should have a bit more to offer, than standing up to racism? It works both ways and I will call out people if they are being racist

Enjoy your evening

That's not really a litmus test is it?

People would condemn trump if he said good morning to someone.

Personally, if you run a country you should choose and use your words very wisely and that doesn't mean you can't be honest.

If you want him to call out white trash areas then he must also call out high crime black ghetto areas

You happy with that??

I actually do read such sites, as I get many different views on things, but infowars has to be one of the most divisive out there, alongside the Morning Star

Now do you read views from many different political bias, or just this one conspiracy and fake news website Gelico?

Trump wants more people from Norway, and fewer people from Africa?  Not racist?

I want to outlaw Republicans.  Does anyone think that's not political?

I find her words unconvincing.  She's just trucking on her name.

Alexander Emerick Jones (born February 11, 1974)[1] is an American radio show host and conspiracy theorist.[2][3][4][5]He hosts The Alex Jones Show from Austin, Texas, which airs on the Genesis Communications Network[6] and shortwave radio station WWCR[7] across the United States and online.[8][9] His website, Infowars.com, is a conspiracy theories and fake news website.[10][11][12][13]

Jones has been the center of many controversies, including his promotion of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting conspiracy theories,[14] and his opposition to gun control.[15] He has accused the U.S. government of being involved in the Oklahoma City bombing,[16] the September 11 attacks,[17] and the filming of fake Moon landings to hide NASA's secret technology.[18][19][20]

He has claimed that several governments and big business have colluded to create a "New World Order" through "manufactured economic crises, sophisticated surveillance tech and—above all—inside-job terror attacks that fuel exploitable hysteria".[21] Jones has described himself as a libertarian and paleoconservative,[22][23] and has been described by others as conservative, right-wing, alt-right[24] and far right.[25][26]

New York magazine described Jones as "America's leading conspiracy theorist",[27] and the Southern Poverty Law Centerdescribes him as "the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America".[28] When asked about these labels, Jones said that he is "proud to be listed as a thought criminal against Big Brother"
