It appears that Democrats have hitched their electoral hopes to a shithole.
Haiti IS a shithole. It was a shithole before the earthquakes and hurricanes. It was a shithole back when the French were growing sugar cane on big slave plantations. It was a shithole when the slaves rose up and killed the French slaveowners. Even Haitians think the place is a shithole.
If you live in a country that has problems with cholera and dysentery, you live in a shithole. El Salvador is a shithole. So is most of Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. South America has lots of shitholes, and Central America is like Mexico’s septic tank. We even have some shitholes here in the US of A – like Baltimore, Detroit, and Oakland.
So what Trump was asking is why we are taking so many people from countries where everybody is poor, illiterate, and completely unprepared for living in a modern industrial society? Why aren’t we just taking the cream off the top? When did taking the dregs of the world become official policy, and why?
Trump calls Haiti a shithole, and 99% of America agrees with him. So now we’re supposed to pretend that every country on the planet is a paradise? If they are such great places, why do all their people want to live here?
Democrats are stupid.
