John recently opened up about his opinion on presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“We are in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive. I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place,” John expressed during Variety‘s TV Summit for his show Underground. “We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country.”

    You mean the “dark place” where the FBI doesn’t ignore domestic terrorists, give them security clearances, and allows them to be armed? Or maybe you mean the other “dark place” when we didn’t enact trade agreements that sanction international slave labor and sweatshops while simultaneously gutting our manufacturing sector and ruining our economy. I guess it is happy days for you because you want to continue the policies that allow virtually any terrorist, criminal, and trafficker into this country.

    So according to him this is the enlighten age. These people have no shame, Americans should just except as the new normal mass slaughter in any city at any give time by people will shall not name.

    The only oppression I’ve seen recently: violent mobs of foreigners assaulting Trump supporters. And nobody even bats an eye anymore at this Early Onset Venezuela-ism after eight years of Castro-Lite. Maybe some of the rioters were American, but they were acting like a Havana Precinct Vigilante Committee.

    If a white mob chased, beat, pelted and assaulted Mexicans or blacks for supporting the wrong candidate, the Justice Department would have come down like a ton of bricks, investigating the attacks, ordering a consent decree for the police department that failed to act and bringing charges for the mayor who ordered it to stand down.

    But, hey, it’s only some white people who support Trump. No Big Deal. In Obamerica, they don’t have the same rights as foreign street mobs.

    As near as I can tell, Obama (and Hillary) think that we need to import more Muslim immigrants because some number of them will be terrorists and we need the non-terrorist Muslim immigrants to inform on them.
    Do I have that right?

    I am still trying to figure out why Obama thinks that he has to find a balance between the rights of non-Americans to emigrate here, and the rights of Americans not to be murdered in cold blood.

    US is in an 8 year Depression. GDP was $14.7T in December 2008. December 2015 GDP was $18.1T. This looks like $3.4T growth, which is pathetic after the Housing Crash, but it is not growth. It is contraction. FedRes pumped the economy with $4.1T called Quantitative Easing that must be removed from the economy to maintain solvency. Backwards accounting, todays GDP is worth $14T in 2008. With unpresedented 0 % interest rates , and 11 trillion added to the national debt. 7 and half years still waiting for Obama recovery . The only modern President to have not ONE quarter of 3% growth, last quarter was .08 % basically recession numbers.
    That is textbook Depression. So America vote for Hillary if you like your Depression she will give more of it in a Obama third term.

    The last 8 months 4 major terrorists attacked with over 1000 Westerns killed or injured.
    I could understand if Obama and the left’s fight against Muslim terror was working these last 8 year, but it’s absolute failure (ISIS didn’t exist before 2010) but for Obama to preen with moral superiority against the peasants because he knows it will never be his family gunned down.
    Dude shut the fuck up and let someone else take take over you had your chance.
    And lecturing, preening to Americans to keep on keeping on with your PC inept war against cold blooded killers got old years ago.
