After GOP nominee Donald Trump announced his plan to strengthen national security and enforce existing immigration laws, the reaction from the left was hysterical. Securing our border and deporting people who are here illegally was seen in liberal circles as racist and xenophobic because that’s just how liberals roll.
Amazingly the liberal reaction was mild compared to what Vincente Fox has said. The former president of Mexico is threatening a war with the US if “racist gringo” Trump wins the White House.
But speaking off being offensive, Fox referred to Trump as the “hated gringo.” Gringo means “foreigner” in Spanish but is generally used as derogatory term for white Americans. Fox calling Trump a gringo would be like Trump calling Fox a “beaner,” except that Trump never did anything of the sort.
And is it just me, or does it seem ridiculous that a foreigner is calling an American, on US Soil, a foreigner? That’s as stupid as someone yelling at a Mexican in Mexico to “go back to Mexico.”
Despite the fact that Trump didn’t insult the Mexican people or the their country, Fox is still furious and ready to take extreme action:
“Imagine, that could take us to a war. Not to a trade war,” he said.
Is this guy out of his freakin’ mind? He was the president of Mexico so presumably he is aware of the Mexican military’s severe limitations, especially in confronting the world’s only superpower. Even those jackasses in Iran and North Korea aren’t stupid enough to threaten a war with the US.
