Posted on 11/01/2018 8:37:11 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot
Historian Douglas Brinkley called President Trump's Twitter ad against illegal immigration "blatant xenophobia."
"We've got right-wing terrorism in this country like we saw during the Oklahoma City Bombing during the Bill Clinton years. We're seeing it on the rise right now; anti-semitism up over 50% in the past year," Brinkley said to CNN's Don Lemon on Wednesday.
DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: "The fact that Donald Trump is doing this blatant, this late in the 21st century, blatant xenophobia, racism, hate, the dividing of Americans. It's really quite disgusting and I think have to talk about the bomber of Florida. We have to talk about what happened in Squirrel Hill in Pennsylvania."...
We've got right-wing terrorism in this country like we saw during the Oklahoma City Bombing during the Bill Clinton years. We're seeing it on the rise right now; anti-semitism up over 50% in the past year. And Donald Trump feeds off of this kind of ugliness and cruelty and his supporters back him on it because they didn't get the wall, but now they might be able to stop an imaginary caravan. (emphasis mine)

Everybody jumped to the conclusion that Bill Clinton was to blame for the Oklahoma City bombing, where's the proof?
And of course, "anti-semitism up over 50% in the past year" is all because of right-wing terrorists, where's the fact?
The Pittsburg synagogue killer is definitely not right-wing, Brinkley can't even make the claim that Trump rhetoric was the cause of it.
I wait and see the evidence that Brinkley saw with his own eyes (or not) "an imaginary caravan".
Ok Brinkley where?
He’s such a sissy- Mary!
An anchor on a “major” cable news network said white dudes are the biggest threat.....not ISIS....not North Korea....not climate change.....white dudes.
If the caravan is imaginary why would they care if we try to stop it?
I wonder if these stats include the Israeli teenager that called in 2,000 anti Semitic threats?
An anchor on a major cable news network said white dudes are the biggest threat.....not ISIS....not North Korea....not climate change.....white dudes.
Why didn’t he just say “honkies”?
His books are unreadable. Historian, my arse
Typical LIB nitwit and lunatic. These people have gone off the deep end. They should throw-out the distorting lenses through which they see the world.
Wanting people to respect your border is no more xenophobia than a woman not wanting to be raped makes her a man hater.
Christie Brinkley is the smarter of the two Brinkley’s.
I was in Ft Bliss as a young Sergeant when the OKC bombing happened. I remember well that the speculation immediately after was that the perps were muslim terrorists. EVERYONE thought that the muslim terrorist was headed to the boarder. Then surprisingly McVeigh was caught rather quickly.
No one is paying attention to anything these idiots are saying
Pretty soon we will keep the house and the senate again for two years and ugly violence from the left will continue to rear its ugly head and show it is the REAL violent group here.
So, CNN is doubling down.
They are a domestic enemy the likes of Japan in WWII.
We are only a threat to their friggin ideology. Consider me a MAJOR threat.
His book on hurricane Katrina was terrific.
They are 100% delusional.
What have I missed? I haven’t heard a word about any right wing terrorism!
