    "Donald Trump's paid campaign staffers have declared on their personal social media accounts that Muslims are unfit to be U.S. citizens, ridiculed Mexican accents, called for Secretary of State John Kerry to be hanged and stated their readiness for a possible civil war, according to a review by The Associated Press of their postings."

    Seems about right. When interviewed, the reporter involved with this story said they also went through Clinton's staff social media posts and didn't find anything like this.

    Trump is such a douchebag, that I choose to leave his minions alone. They learned it from watching him...I'm still mad that FOX wouldn't allow the satirical Idiocracy ad spots to be released...

    Can you ever stop talking about race? Are you on the BLM payroll or something? Or are you freelance, getting paid for each race baiting comment.

    Are you on Trump's payroll? What a ridiculous comment.

    Donald Trump is trash. So is everyone in his circle. What a shocker.

    Are you denying Trumps embrace of the white supremacists capped off by hiring Bannon.?

    I don't know anything about it. I do know that you talk about race way too much.

    What's too much? Is there a post count? Asking for a friend.

    More from the "it's bad to shine a light on racism" crowd.

    Hanged for war crimes? probably grasping at straws since it's too late to get Bush as a war criminal so Republicans want to find ways to act like the Democratic supporters of yesteryear, I suppose?

    Are people electing Trump supporters or just Trump and who Trump directly picks for spots like the VP?

    Or if we're going to damn a whole group of people because of the actions of a few, keep in mind those small amount of ruffians are no less American than Clinton's supporters, and maybe they don't know anything at all hence their silence? (See how easy and fun it is to make supposition and sophistry? Both sides do it. But why?)

    I looked at the article. I see nothing wrong with any of it. We do need "Islam control" and the Mexican thing is nothing worse than what Carlos Mencia used to say in his (unfunny) stand up act.

    Furthermore, an off color joke doesn't mean you're racist to the core. It means you told an off color joke. Frankly what shocks me is how the "tolorant" left has absolutely ZERO TOLERANCE for those these disagree with or are offended by.

    His racism is hardly the product of one story. His documented racism goes as far back as the late 70s. From not renting to blacks, to calling for 5 innocent black kids to be executed via a full page newspaper ad, to not wanting blacks to count his money to removing black people from the casino floor when he visited to many more. We won't even get into his support for white supremacists (retweeting them, having Uday appear on their radio programs) nor his hiring of the de facto leader of the current WS movement as his campaign CEO. Clearly, you are OK with all of that. Can't say I'm surprised.

    Islam control? Like round them up in camps? Card them All? Microchip them so we can track them? Monitor them?

    Further proof that racism is OK with them but whatever you do, don't mention racism.

    The problem with trying to measure tolerance is that it is subjective to each individual. People have different experiences in life that may make one person absolutely cringe vs shrugging your shoulders and moving along. The question is how do your regulate sensibilities so that they aren't too extreme or lenient?

    Not sure that someone with Trump's temperament should be in control of that regulation.

    Is it that or is it laughing at the "everything is racist" crowd?
