Kyrgios wears “F— Donald Trump” shirt following win over Nadal

Nick Kyrgios may have made another enemy on Monday. But he may have made more than a few friends, as well.

Following his 4-3 2-4 4-3 4-3 4-3 Fast4 format win over Rafael Nadal in Sydney, Kyrgios wore a shirt depicting United States President-elect Donald Trump in devil horns with the statement “F— Donald Trump” written below.

“I didn’t think the level was going to be that high, but I don’t think Rafa knows any other way than to go out there and give 100 percent,” the controversial Australian commented. “We weren’t taking it easy at all, so I’m going to take great confidence from that.”

But it was his wardrobe while making those comments that was the story.

Asked why he was wearing the shirt, Kyrgios said the reason was self-explanatory.

43 Comments on Kyrgios wears “F— Donald Trump” shirt following win over Nadal

  1. I promised to post some links related to my previous comments i can’t to that right now, I will do that later.
    This links contain information’s that would go to greater lengths than I did.

  2. Whether you put a hashtag that say’s never my president or not, it won’t change the fact that Donald J. Trump is the President of the USA.
    And he would make America great again for you, for all Americans and for those who love this country.

    Thank you mr Putin that You stopped this new-Nazis animals…

    ISIS, translated into English as Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant or Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, is the latest head of the fundamentalist Jihadi hydra CREATED by the United States and gulf monarchies. ISIS is making huge territorial gains as the Iraqi army collapses in its wake. The history of American and Saudi collusion to destabilize that region is a long and sad tale. For many years these partners in crime have left a trail of death and devastation in Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria as well as in Iraq.

    Very few Americans remember that millions of people around the world foresaw the calamity and acted to try and prevent it. Not only were there huge protests in many nations but there was serious discussion of the extent of American criminality. The World Tribunal on Iraq held a series of meetings from November 2003 through June 2005 in New York, London, Rome, Lisbon, Stockholm, Mumbai, Tunis, Hiroshima, Beirut and other cities. The culminating session in Istanbul produced a Declaration of the Jury of Conscience which spelled out in stark detail the violations of the United Nations Charter and the Nuremburg Principles. The tribunal spared no one, condemning the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom for acts of aggression and the United Nations Security Council for its inaction. One of the tribunal’s charges is particularly prescient:
    “Engaging in policies to wage permanent war on sovereign nations. Syria and Iran have already been declared as potential targets. In declaring a ‘global war on terror,’ the US government has given itself the exclusive right to use aggressive military force against any target of its choosing. Ethnic and religious hostilities are being fueled in different parts of the world.

    • This is what WhiteLies supports…Russia defending this Syrian so called government regime. Just another Hitler wanna be….

      Up to 13,000 secretly hanged in Syrian jail, says Amnesty

      As many as 13,000 opponents of Bashar al-Assad were secretly hanged in one of Syria’s most infamous prisons in the first five years of the country’s civil war as part of an extermination policy ordered by the highest levels of the Syrian government, according to Amnesty International.

      Many thousands more people held in Saydnaya prison died through torture and starvation, Amnesty said, and the bodies were dumped in two mass graves on the outskirts of Damascus between midnight and dawn most Tuesday mornings for at least five years.

    Simple Stanley, do you believe in evolution?

    WhiteLies, what are your views on Hitler? Good or bad. Why?

    WTF Just Happened? Trump’s Chaotic First Weeks in Office
    America has weathered the opening blitz of the Trump presidency with our republic intact, but our collective sanity rattled. The new administration has bombarded Americans with nonsense – from “alternative facts” about inauguration crowd size, to conspiracy theories about voter fraud, to a made-up “Bowling Green Massacre,” to Trump’s off-the-wall praise of long-dead abolitionist Frederick Douglass as someone “who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.” Adding to the psychological shock-and-awe, the administration has leaked a horrifying host of draft executive orders – to trash the UN, reopen CIA “black site” prisons and permit rampant LGBTQ discrimination – that may never become official policy

    Cut through the noise, and the new administration’s true actions are less overwhelming – but no less harrowing. Trump has pursued a substantive agenda, with dark consequences for Earth’s climate, America’s alliances, the Affordable Care Act, undocumented immigrants and refugees, middle-class home buyers and investors, and the veterans who fill the federal workforce.
    Here’s a recap of what the Trump administration has actually put in motion in its first weeks in office.

    1. KNEECAPPED OBAMACARE
    Without presenting a plan for its replacement, Congressional Republicans have taken the first legislative steps to repeal Obamacare. President Trump jump-started the tear-down with an executive order that weakens the health care law, blunting its enforcement mechanisms. The order instructs federal administrators to “exercise all authority and discretion” to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” any “cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden” under the law. Trump then shut down advertising and outreach programs that would have encouraged Americans to sign up for coverage before the January 31st deadline. The former chief marketing officer of Healthcare.gov estimates Trump’s move prevented 500,000 Americans from finding coverage for 2017.

    2. Undermined women’s health across the globe
    With an executive order, Trump reinstated and expanded the global gag rule (a.k.a. the “Mexico City Policy”), which bars groups that perform – or even discuss – abortion from receiving U.S. foreign aid. The last time the gag rule was in effect (under George W. Bush), one study found, “shipments of U.S.-donated condoms and contraceptives completely ceased to 16 developing countries,” while family planning groups in another 16 nations, most of them in Africa, “lost access to condoms and contraceptives as a result of their refusal to accept the Gag Rule restrictions.”

    3. Empowered Big Oil
    Consistent with its view that the federal Climate Action Plan is “harmful and unnecessary,” the Trump administration used executive orders to put two infamous oil pipeline projects back on the fast track, threatening to unlock megatons of new carbon pollution.
    The Keystone XL pipeline would open the Gulf Coast as a global export market for Canada’s filthy tar-sands crude – increasing producer profit and spurring production. Trump’s executive order invites pipeline owner Trans Canada to renew its application for the pipeline, blocked by the Obama administration after years of protest. A second Trump order calls for “expedited” review and approval of the Dakota Access Pipeline that would transport crude from the shale fields of North Dakota to refineries in the Midwest. It has been blocked by an unprecedented protest by Native American “water protectors” at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, where the pipeline would cross treaty lands and endanger tribal water resources. Neither order immediately renews pipeline construction. But the latter has already renewed clashes between law enforcement and DAPL protesters.

    Trump’s nominee to lead the state department, former Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, was confirmed by the Senate on a 56-43 vote, backed by Democrats Mark Warner of Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia as well as Independent Angus King of Maine. “They own this guy,” says 350.org founder Bill McKibben of Tillerson’s Senate supporters. “They own his policy. They own his corporate past. They own his ties to Russia. It’s all part of the big deal.”
    The GOP-run House and Senate have also done Big Oil a good turn, passing legislation to kill an anti-corruption rule by the Obama-era Securities and Exchange Commission. It required oil firms to disclose their payments to foreign governments. This will be one of the first bills signed by President Trump (accompanied by another rule repeal that will let coal companies dump mining waste into streams).

    4. Targeted immigrants and banned refugees
    Nowhere has Trump been busier than on the subject of immigration and border security.
    Acting on a top campaign promise, Trump issued an executive order calling for “the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border.” The order relies on existing legislation under which construction to be paid for by U.S. taxpayers – not Mexico.
    Perhaps the most sweeping of Trump’s new executive orders has placed as many as 11 million undocumented immigrants in the crosshairs for priority deportation. Going far beyond criminal undocumented immigrants like gang members, the Trump order targets all “removable aliens” who have been “convicted of any criminal offense” or “charged with any criminal offense” or – and this is where it gets broad – those who have “committed acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense.”

    Since entering the country without papers is a “chargeable criminal offense” – as are other common status violations like securing a job without authorization or driving a car without a license – virtually anyone in the country without status is now vulnerable. In the words of a prominent immigration attorney, the order is “a blueprint for mass deportation … crafted by the most extreme anti-immigrant zealots in Trump’s orbit.”

    Trump used the same order to threaten to strip sanctuary cities – jurisdictions that forbid their law enforcement officers from enforcing immigration law – of federal funding. Trump accused sanctuary jurisdictions of causing “immeasurable harm to the American people and to the very fabric of our Republic.”

    The impact of Trump’s order targeting undocumented immigrants has yet to be fully felt. And it was immediately overshadowed by the chaos created by Trump’s second executive order on immigration – suspending refugee settlement in the United States for 120 days (thereafter prioritizing religious minorities in their home countries, and largely excluding Muslims). The order additionally suspended immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Although the order – “PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY” – invokes 9/11 as a justification, it does nothing to restrict immigration from the homelands of the 9/11 attackers.
    The order created chaos at the nation’s international airports. Vetted visa holders, and even permanent U.S. residents with green cards, were denied entry upon arrival. Mass protests and lawsuits filed by the ACLU and others secured entry of most of those detained – including heroes who risked their lives serving U.S. troops in Iraq. And the administration walked back its ban on green card holders, issuing a new order clarifying that Trump’s order “do not apply to such individuals.”

    But the chaos created by the order is ongoing. According to court declarations by an attorney for the U.S. government, as many as 100,000 visas held by citizens of the banned countries were provisionally revoked. White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters he does not know whether the administration has designs to deport those visa holders already in the country.
    Now, following a lawsuit by the state of Washington, and a decision by a federal judge appointed by George W. Bush, key provisions of the executive order have been blocked, subject to a temporary restraining order.
    The executive branch has reassured democracy-watchers by complying with the order. But Trump has taken to Twitter, blasting the judicial branch for placing the country “in peril.”

    5. Tore down financial guardrails and targeted the middle class

    During the campaign, Trump blasted Hillary Clinton as a Wall Street stooge. As president, he’s now eagerly advancing Wall Street’s agenda.
    Trump has begun the process of dismantling the legal protections designed to prevent a repeat of the 2008 financial collapse. One Trump order takes aim at the Dodd-Frank regulations on Wall Street. The order is short on specifics, but stands as a declaration of war on the post-crash financial regulatory regime.
    Despite having run as a populist, Trump signed two orders that will cost the middle class. The first blocks a rate cut on the mortgage-insurance premiums paid by buyers with smaller incomes, lower credit scores and/or modest down payments. Trump’s order will cost the typical buyer of a $200,000 home nearly $500 a year. A second order instructs the Labor Department to repeal a requirement that financial advisers work to maximize the profits of their clients – freeing them instead to pad their own commissions at the expense of grandma’s 401(k).

    6. Froze and intimidated the federal workforce

    Trump issued a hiring freeze across the federal government – exempting some positions at the VA only after public outcry. The action remains a stick in the eye for America’s veterans, who comprise 30 percent of the federal workforce and nearly a third of new hires. The Trump administration also gagged several science-based agencies – elevating rogue tweets of climate data from the @BadlandsNPS account into an act of bold resistance.

    7. Erased Jews from a Holocaust remembrance statement

    The Trump administration marked Holocaust Remembrance Day by failing to mention the six million Jews who were exterminated. (The administration reportedly rejected a proposed statement by the State Department’s Special Envoy on Holocaust Issues honoring Hitler’s Jewish victims.) The erasure was defended by the president’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and lauded by white nationalist leader Richard Spencer, the man who coined the term “alt-right.” Spencer defended the White House for “its ‘de-Judification’ of the Holocaust.”

    8. Bungled special ops

    In his first act as commander-in-chief, Trump launched an ill-advised raid on a terrorist compound in Yemen that cost America dearly – and reportedly killed more than a dozen civilians. The raid encountered a far more fortified resistance than anticipated; according to reports, the firefight killed a Navy Seal, wounded three other U.S. special forces, killed an 8-year-old American living on the premises – among as many as 10 women and children killed – and forced the military to destroy a $75 million Osprey aircraft damaged in the operation. Trump did not watch the raid from the situation room, preferring updates delivered to the White House residence.

    9. Weakened national security

    In a power grab that Trump himself was reportedly not fully briefed on, the president signed an executive order that demoted the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the armed forces and the Director of National Intelligence from permanent seats at the National Security Council that advises the president on matters of war and peace. The same order elevated Trump political adviser Steve Bannon, former executive of the alt-right platform Breitbart, to a permanent chair.
    The move was blasted by House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who pulled no punches in declaring, “What is making America less safe is to have a white supremacist named to the National Security Council as a permanent member, while the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and the Director of National Intelligence are told: ‘Don’t call us, we’ll call you.'”

    10. Strained relations with allies and emboldened Russia

    Trump’s diplomatic rollout with allies has been a rocky mess. The president’s loose Twitter rantings led Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to cancel a meeting with Trump, who then reportedly threatened, on a phone call with Peña Nieto, to send U.S. troops into Mexico to deal with that country’s “bad hombres.” Trump followed that diplomatic gesture with a tumultuous 25-minute call with the conservative prime minister of Australia – one of the United States’ staunchest allies.
    Trump had a more cordial call with Vladimir Putin of Russia – a call that has been followed quickly by renewed hostilities from Russian-backed separatists in Eastern Ukraine. When pressed by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly as to why Trump respects Putin – a “killer,” in O’Reilly’s words – Trump deflected: “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What – do you think our country’s so innocent?”

    11. Ceded economic influence to Asia

    The Trans Pacific Partnership was already dead. But Trump pounded a final nail in the coffin with an executive order withdrawing the U.S. not only from the free trade agreement, but from the negotiating structure entirely – meaning that Trump will not negotiate a better deal. The move cedes influence in Asia to America’s top trade rival, China.
    If there’s a silver lining from Trump’s dangerous opening act, it’s that it has been widely unpopular.
    Not only have millions of Americans taken to the streets and airports in protest, but a majority of Americans already disapprove of the president, whose favorable rating is mired in the low 40s. (No honeymoon. Sad!)
    Trump himself has become increasingly toxic. Corporate actors like Apple, Lyft, Microsoft and Twitter have joined friend-of-the-court briefs to block the president’s immigration ban. Harley Davidson canceled a planned Trump visit to a plant. The CEO of Uber fled Trump’s economic council. The CEO of Disney turned down an invitation to the White House. Nordstrom discontinued selling Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. And it was impossible not to view the pro-diversity, pro-immigrant, anti-wall ads during the Super Bowl as an extended subtweet of @RealDonaldTrump.

    So chin up, America. Not only does political gravity still exist – your resistance is making it stronger.

    How Trump Has Taken Away Our Homes
    Contributing Op-Ed Writer
    By MASHA GESSEN and MARTINA NAVRATILOVA FEB. 1, 2017

    We wrote this together because we have a few things in common. Some are obvious: Both of us came to the United States as teenagers fleeing Communist regimes; both of us are queer. We are also both moved alternately to tears and to rage by the actions of the new American president. One thing that we share is less obvious: This anger and despair make both of us feel as if we are losing our home.

    Masha once spent an evening in Berlin with a sociologist and a philosopher trying to define “home.” The three discussants had, among them, lived in more than half a dozen countries and counted themselves native in at least two languages each. Facts like country of birth, length of stay or mother tongue were not applicable. Other descriptors emerged: a sense of safety, a sense of familiarity, a sense of inhabiting space with certainty, a sense, indeed, of the certainty of that space — the opposite feeling of having the rug pulled out from under your feet.

    President Trump has introduced fear into our households. Both of us are married to women who are not American citizens (both are Russians who carry green cards), and both of us are raising children some of whom are United States citizens and some not. Most Americans do not realize that a hierarchy of immigrant security exists. Permanent green-card holders are more secure than provisional ones; political asylum or refugee status can be canceled with the stroke of a pen; asylum applicants are the most vulnerable — thousands of people are in the country legally, awaiting an interview or a decision on their application, but their right to remain here can be snatched away for any reason. Many of these people would face violence or even death if they were forced to return to their countries. In this hierarchy, our partners and children are safer than most, but a sense of insecurity has still seeped into our homes — making them feel less like home.

    Martina came to America at 18, still a high school student. She was already a world-class tennis player, though. A few months earlier, the Czechoslovak authorities had denied her permission to travel to the U.S. Open. They later reversed that decision, but the experience of powerlessness was enough to make her seek political asylum when she got to New York. The prospect of the authorities controlling her ability to compete was more frightening than the prospect of living in a strange country, far from her parents, whom she could not be certain of ever seeing again. She knew that America was the land of freedom.

    Masha knew this growing up, too. Her parents brought her to the United States when she was 14. She had never been to this country, but leaving everything she had known behind and moving to America seemed like a homecoming. Masha came from a family of writers: the freedom to write and read was the singular attraction of coming to America. For Martina, freedom of speech also figured strongly in the imagined freedom of the United States. She liked to tell jokes, and she wasn’t always great at judging her audience, so it would be good not to face political repercussions for ill-timed humor. Also, Martina had a secret that could never be disclosed in Czechoslovakia: She liked women.

    As it turned out, freedom of speech in America had limitations. Immigration policies carried over from the early 20th century and enshrined in the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act dictated that “sexual deviants” be deported for reasons of “psychopathic personality.” The Immigration and Naturalization Service, which had deported dozens of people a year in the 1950s and 1960s, had stopped actively hunting down homosexuals, but an openly gay or bisexual person could still not be granted citizenship. Martina decided to keep quiet about her sexuality until she had her citizenship. She got that in 1981, but at that point the Women’s Tennis Association asked her not to come out. The women’s sport had been rocked by scandal, and sponsors were threatening to pull out. She waited (though some journalists did not).

    In the end, this was the promise that had brought us here: not that we would find home immediately but that we would have the freedom to make our home here. The process necessarily included the freedom to work to change America so that it would include us and accept us, and others like us, and still others who were unlike us and who brought more change with them. This is the promise that brought more than 42 million Americans — more than 13 percent of the population — here from other countries. This is the promise now being yanked back by Mr. Trump’s suspension of the refugee program, by the ban on admitting people from seven predominantly Muslim countries, by the wall on the border with Mexico, by the xenophobic rhetoric emanating from the White House, by the idea that “America first” somehow means that everyone who is not born American is therefore excluded.

    The people hit hardest by Mr. Trump’s policies are the people in need of immediate refuge. But in the slightly longer run, it is tens of millions of others who have grown up, or are growing up, with the idea that somewhere, there is a land of the free that could be their home, too. Most of them would never come to the United States, but they were made safer by its tradition of welcoming immigrants — an ideal that, though it was never honored to the fullest extent possible, remained until now central to America.

    One in four people in the United States is an immigrant or the child of an immigrant. A majority of people in the country are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. If they — if we — do not continue to stand up against Mr. Trump, we will lose our home, too, even as we stay in our houses.

    • It’s worth noting that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will be hearing arguments at 6:00 on today regarding the immigration ban. The state attorney general got a stay from the Washington Federal Court. The DOJ has appealed the decision to the 9th Circuit of Appeals, which has played initially refused to lift the stay.

      This is important because state attorneys general have the power to sue the federal government. It is one way to fight back against the regressive, noxious agenda of Trump.

      Trump cannot fire a federal judge who is appointed for life. This judge was appointed by President Bush. Immigrants have been reunited with their families now that the van has been lifted. Trump’s despicable comments about the judge reveal his contempt for the Democratic process and separation of powers in our government.

      This is the way that we can try to get justIce and stop the fascist agenda if Trump. The judge did say that there is no evidence of any terrorist attacks from the seven countries that were on the banned list.

      Trump is continuing with his fascist propaganda in the tradition of Hitler and the Nazis in trying to use fear and divisiveness against the people of this country. Trump is now blaming the judge for any terrorist attacks that may happen because he lifted the ban.

      Trump is attacking the media and trying to use alternative facts and outright lies and propaganda. This is also similar to Hitler and the Nazis.

      The fight against criminal Trump will continue and hopefully his relationship with Putin will be exposed and he will be exposed for the traitor that he is.

      Power to the people!

  7. Philip Roth Calls Trump an Ignorant Con Man With ‘Vocabulary of 77 Words’
    January 23, 2017

    Novelist Philip Roth has lashed out at President Trump as an ignorant “con man” who could do untold damage to the country.

    The retired “Portnoy’s Complaint” author told the New Yorker that Trump makes other polarizing Republicans like Richard Nixon and George W. Bush look angelic by comparison.

    “Trump is ignorant of government, of history, of science, of philosophy, of art, incapable of expressing or recognizing subtlety or nuance, destitute of all decency,” Roth told the magazine in a string of emails. He “wield(s) a vocabulary of seventy-seven words that is better called Jerkish than English.”

    The emails from the 83-year-old Roth came in response to uncanny parallels between the Trump’s win and his famous 2004 alternate history novel “The Plot Against America”, in which Charles Lindbergh takes over as president.

    Roth insisted he never dreamt of the novel as being a warning about the rise of a Trump-like figure to the pinnacle of power.

    “It isn’t Trump as a character, a human type—the real-estate type, the callow and callous killer capitalist—that outstrips the imagination,” he said “It is Trump as President of the United States.”

  8. # Russia defending this Syrian so called government regime. Just another Hitler wanna be#

    This is not more “so called government” than Saudi Arabian government who together with USA created ISIS.
    Compared to Clinton and Bush,mr Putin is a small gentle girl who sells flowers on the street.

    #WhiteLight, what are your views on Hitler? Good or bad. Why?#

    Extremely bad. Because.

    1) He was madman and greatest mass murderer in history.
    2) Private reasons.In my past life I was a Polish Jew during WW2.

    • You don’t know anything about being a Jew! It’s an insult to have to read nonsense about you being a Jew in a past life!

      You don’t know fascism when you see it and you don’t know anti-semitism either!

      Ignorance is what Trump trafficks in lies, misinformation, divide and conquer tactics, demogoguery, hatred, bigotry and misogyny!

      But Trump will be defeated in the end. The Democratic institutions of this country that were put in place by the Founding Fathers will triumph in the end.

      Trump the wannabe dictator will not succeed in destroying this country!

      Power to the people!

  9. Tramp!

    Hey you got that right! LOL!

    All you have is a foul mouth to spew out your hatred for this country and Americans! You turn a blind eye to Putin and his crimes and just keep repeating the same garbage over and over again. You see what you wish to see!

    There is no reincarnation! So you were a Jew in another life? Please give me a break! Like your Fuhrer Donny boy, you could care less about the Holocaust of the rise of anti-semitism in this country!

    You are just a hater! Pure and simple!

  10. WhiteLies conveniently ignores the lives lost including young girl in Yemen strike approved by Orange. Responsible for deaths in just his second week. At this rate, he will kill more than any leader and WhiteLies would have you believe that Orange is not fascist.

    White. Lies. Indeed.

    • And WhireLies speaks of hypocrisy pocricy and inhumanity yet would exclude refugees fleeing for their lives from entering US and Sweden.

      Hypocrisy indeed. Now if only WhiteLies could spell it as well as he exemplifies it. Same as Orange.

  11. Ricky,

    Could you please delete this last post from Whitelies for profanity and inappropriate language?

    This individual does not seem to understand what it means to post on a public forum.

    • WhiteLies has no one to share life with.

      Such disrespect for women.

      Explains his excessive projected anger.

      Hopefully you will have friends other than fascism in a future life.

  12. Such anger from WhiteLies when challenged with facts.

    WhiteLies excels at hypocrisy like Orange, Bannon and all fascists.

    Maybe in a future life, he will also be able to spell it. Like Orange, he obviously doesn’t read books.

  13. HAWKSTRABABY,

    Congratulations! You succeeded in deleting my comments that called you what you truly are, I know you are immature, unreasonable, irrational etc. But I didn’t know you were BABY, a BIG FAT BABY with a BIG MOUTH, you run to your MUMMY and you complain to him.
    But you are so quick to call decent, honorable, hardworking people- Nazi, racist, fascist etc, you even use the F-word to address us sometimes but do you see me or whitelight complain about it NO we don’t because we know you are a M_R_N lol! And we know that your comments are baseless, childish, foolish & false and we treat it accordingly like adults do.
    You support the murdering of INNOCENT! DEFENCELESS! PRECIOUS! babies and they blood of those children are in your hands and in the hands of those organizations(planned parenthood) who murder them.
    No matter how many comments that gets deleted it won’t change the fact that ABORTION IS MURDER.
    You can call them fertilized eggs, donuts or whatever filthy thing that help’s you sleep at night, but GOD calls them his creation & HE has a good and perfect will for them if they would accept it when they come of age.
    One day you will stand b4 a HOLY and JUST GOD and in his presence no evil will be justified.
    My prayer for you is that one day you would repent hopefully sooner rather than later, because GOD is merciful & gracious there is no sin too big that he can’t forgive, there is no sinner too lost that he can’t find, he said in his word Revelation 3:20- Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if ANYONE hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him/her, and dine with him/her, and he/she with me.

    HE is knocking at the door of your heart would you open the door today.

  14. Ricky,

    What you did today was irresponsible you deleted my comments without telling me why you deleted them, well I guess your boss right well done.
    You deleted my comments without checking the previous comments because if you had, you would have deleted more than 90% of his comments & some of the comments of others as well.
    He calls decent people Nazis, racist, fascist and he even uses the F-word to address us sometimes, but we don’t cry about it because we know that he is IMMATURE etc.
    Do you call a thief= a sentry or a jurist.
    Do you call a rapist= a victim.
    Do you call a murderer or those who support the murdering of innocent children=decent human beings, no you don’t.

    What you did today was not just irresponsible, it was hypocritical and it shows a lack of leadership and fairness.
    Am not writing these to convince you to delete their comments am not bothered about it and I don’t think others are, what am bothered about is you making judgments without a proper & full review.

  15. LIBERAL LOGIC

    (1) if a man say’s murdering an innocent baby in the womb is EVIL, WICKED, DEMONIC etc and those who support these BARBARIC organizations that have murdered hundreds of millions of defenceless babies are worse than Adolf hitler their comments are deleted.

    But if you support the murdering of babies you are a hero who is fighting for a woman’s healthcare & right to murder a defenceless child.

  16. My last post on this topic.

    Americans like to talk about Putins crimes. They like to talk about Ghadafis, Hitlers and Asads crimes, but they hate to talk about Bushs, Clintons, Obamas and Tony Blairs crimes.
    Many even deny these crimes. Its like a disease.Its like a blindness.
    Those Americans who did not give a shit for thousands civillians killed in Yemen only 2 months ago now are crying a river for 10 civillians killed couple days ago.
    Its really difficult and incurable disease.These poor souls are lost case.
    I leave You with your president, mr.Trump. You will have a great fun with him 🙂
    Bye.

    • WhiteLies likes to talk about immigrant crime but WhiteLies hate to talk about proportional native crime.
      WhiteLies even deny these crimes. Its like a disease.Its like a blindness.
      WhiteLies who did not give a shit for thousands of refugees who fled their country and Syrian families killed in Syria by their own government now is crying a river about immigrants in his country when natives commit same crimes per capita.

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

  17. If some scientists say that man made global warming is real anyone who disagrees should be put in prison. But when 100% of scientists say that human life begins at conception it has nothing to do with abortion.

  18. Wikileaks revealing secrets about Hillary is evil. Hillary putting highly classified data on an insecure server is fine.

  19. LIBERAL LOGIC

    (4). Exposing Hillary’s secrets is a foreign coup. The NYT’s revealing highly classified anti-terror programs is heroic.

  20. LIBERAL LOGIC

    (5). WikiLeaks is a source for truth justice and the American way if it’s exposing critical national security programs that have nothing to do with domestic surveillance. WikiLeaks is an agent of fascism if it reveals anything that Hillary wants hidden.

  21. LIBERAL LOGIC

    (6). Electoral college electors ignoring how the people voted in their state is true democracy.

    Fidel Castro, who wore military attire and got his power through a military campaign he led, is a beacon of freedom and truth. Retired American generals are unfit to serve in government.

    • Do you believe in evolution Simple Stanley?

      Simple Stanley doesn’t know the meaning of logic. Fascists rarely do.

  22. A year ago, Francis criticized candidate Donald Trump for wanting to build a wall along the border with Mexico, saying, “A person who thinks only about building walls … and not building bridges is not Christian.”

    Preach it Frank.

    Every time Trump signs something, I think of how that pen he’s using once dreamed of a better life: writing poetry, scratching butts, etc.

  24. Just came across this thread. Made my way through the first two pages of comments, but couldn’t be bothered to get through all of it. Still, I learnt a lot. Who knew that Hawkeye was a Bernie Sanders-supporting socialist hailing from up north, who was capable of making reasonable arguments free of sarcasm and personal invective toward those with whom he disagrees? (even if only when arguing with Natashao) Maybe we have more in common than I thought (I’m from Minnesota). At any rate, let me add my two cents. I think there may be more agreement to this argument than meets the eye, at least once personal attacks and other irrelevancies are stripped away. Summarizing in two main points:

    1. Natashao and Whitelight are absolutely right to call attention to the morally horrific nature of US foreign policy. I take their main point to be this: Why the moral outrage against Donald Trump, given that his predecessors (as of his inauguration and even today) are guilty of far worse crimes by any objective moral measure? It reeks of hypocrisy. The basis of their claim is rock solid. In the postwar period, the United States is responsible for the deaths of *far* more innocent civilians of other countries than is any other state -please note the qualification; Stalin and Chairman Mao are excluded- and it’s not even close. The worst case is in Indochina, where the figure runs into the millions; but it also runs into the millions in the middle east since the 1st Gulf War (1991) -here I am including not just deaths caused directly by war, but the millions of Iraqi children who died due to the draconian “oil for food” programme of the 1990s, and other similar deaths of which Madeleine Albright once infamously said, “we think the price is worth it”. Any self-respecting patriotic American aware of this record should hang his head in shame: it is blood on all of our hands.

    The bombing in Kosovo, to which Natashao (and Djokovic) has called attention is one sorry chapter in that history. It was an absolutely preventable event, but Bill Clinton was determined to go to war and did not negotiate with Milosevic in good faith (one of the conditions at the Rambouillet talks that preceded the bombing in March 1999 was that NATO troops were to have full and unfettered access to all of Serbia!)

    It should go without saying that pointing out facts such as these does not mean endorsing Milosevic or Saddam Hussein or Putin, or any other authoritarian leader. But it should be obvious, from even a cursory study of recent history, that the US has never had (and does not currently have) any problem with such leaders. Witness the current leadership in countries throughout the middle east, notably Saudi Arabia. In recent decades it has been happy to deal with leaders that butchered their own people by the thousands, notably in Central America (El Salvador and Guatemala come to mind; the latter case with respect to which I believe Bill Clinton actually apologized). Moreover, the claim that Russia interfered in the election is laughable -not because it is necessarily false, but because the type of interference is so mild compared with absolutely standard US operating procedure in countries throughout the world for many decades. When the US doesn’t like the outcome of an election, it simply organizes or backs a military coup. Some notable examples: Iran (1953); Congo (1960); Chile (1973). More recently, Obama turned a blind eye when the democratically elected leader (Morsi) in Egypt was deposed in a coup, and Egypt now enjoys the military dictatorship it did for decades. Ok, enough on this side of the coin.

    2. The other side is much easier. Donald Trump is a danger to society and a menace to the world. So much was obvious before he took office, but he has surrounded himself with a few very dangerous people. As Hawkeye has pointed out, his climate change denial could spell the end of us all; and of course having his finger on the nuclear button could bring about that result much more quickly. He may not have yet killed as many innocent civilians in Yemen as Obama and Hillary, but he is off to a rip-roaring start, and there is no reason to think he won’t surpass them (if he can stay in office; I’m picking him to be out by year’s end). Basically, everything about the guy is terrifying. On top of it all, he seems to be a truly odious human being. All of this is so obvious that a 20-yr old tennis player who himself has not infrequently shown signs of being brain dead can see it.

    Ending with a question: I am curious as to why Ricky thought Nick’s t-shirt was worth discussing in the first place?

  25. Just a follow up. Does anyone know of any evidence that Russia’s alleged tampering in the US election was anything more than making it clear the extent to which the DNC was in the bag for Hillary? Basically, any evidence that Russia was trying to publicize nothing more nor less than what Bernie Sanders had been saying for the past year? Again, maybe it’s true, but it’s such small potatoes it’s hard to take it seriously. Given all the good reasons to criticize Trump and even to get him impeached, it’s strikes me as exceedingly odd to focus on the Russian influence, which is comparatively minor. I guess it’s a bit like getting Al Capone on tax evasion.
