Donald Trump supporters are people who are homogeneous. People who are xenophobic. People who take issue with diversity or multiculturalism. People who
are fearmongers. People who are not quite as educated about the world as their political peers. People who believe as they do because they are easier to manipulate. People who feel they have no voice, and is unheard. Is this person...you.

I'm the son of immigrants, and there are very legitimate reasons why people would oppose multiculturalism. Keep in mind, multiculturalism is pretty broad, most people only hate different forms of it.

What is there to say? You claimed that Trump supporters are "homogeneous", meaning that the blanket labels which followed applied to all Trump supporters. You claimed that they are "not quite as educated", who "believe as they do because they are easier to manipulate." I am a Trump supporter, and I don't fit the above description.

CNN calls them uneducated. I was just being nice. But anyway, many of them are misguided dogmatic bigots who think that Trump is a savior. Anything else you wanna add.

Despite not supporting Donald Trump I could make a similar statement on Hillary supporters. They are in favor of terrible treatment of women (while also thinking women should not have to do as good of a job to get the same money), they do not think that rape victims voices should be heard, they are perfectly fine supporting extreme movements which lead to deaths and destruction of cities, and they do not believe in the justice system.

Xenophobic would still work. It's the culture that makes a person foreign to which hate or fear is directed.

Overgeneralization/stereotypes

People who take issue with diversity or multiculturalism
What is the issue with opposing this?

People who are fearmongers.

People who are not quite as educated about the world as their political peers. People who believe as they do because they are easier to manipulate. People who feel they have no voice, and is unheard. Is this person...you.

Wow, what a convincing forum topic. This forum topic of childish insults and buzzwords ought to really hurt those dang trump supporters!

Your immaturity and downright stupidity is heavily bleeding through in this thread. How about you actually come up with actual criticism against Trump instead of throwing a bunch of childish insults?

Is it not reasonable to fear backwards cultures? My sincere apologies, but I will take caution against Islamic cultures that are in opposition to classical liberal ideas such as gender equality, religious freedom, freedom of speech, etc. Call this xenophobia if you will, but I will call this common sense.

Not all Muslims are fundamentalists. You may not know it, but most Muslims in the US are adapting fine to the American way of life. If you truly oppose the influence of religious fundamentalists in the US you should look towards Christians who are far more likely to enact their brand of Sharia than any Muslim.

That only happens because (at least) most of them are westernized and adopt to American culture, and refuse to follow their reactionary culture of wherever country they racially came from.
This still dodges my point none the less; I criticized foreign Islamic cultures - not Muslims assimilating to American society.

I haven't seen too many Christians in favor of shooting gays, in addition to using violence and being in favor of reactionary views. Radical Christianity in the modern age just doesn't compare to radical Islam.

It doesn't actually dodge the point, seeing how your generally xenophobic position would simply exclude people from the US from those regions based on religion when they could have the potential to assimilate into the US.

If you truly oppose the influence of religious fundamentalists in the US you should look towards Christians who are far more likely to enact their brand of Sharia than any Muslim.
I haven't seen too many Christians in favor of shooting gays, in addition to using violence and being in favor of reactionary views. Radical Christianity in the modern age just doesn't compare to radical Islam.

Lol. Sure you don't see Christians in favor of shooting gays, just praising the acts of those who do [http://www.joemygod.com...][http://winningdemocrats.com...]. And all the gay bashings that happen in the US couldn't possibly be committed by Christians, could they? Sure they don't kill gays, they just force them into conversion therapy which is known for its cruel and unusual methods [http://www.advocate.com...] which often leads to suicide. Sure they don't kill gays, they just write and pass hypocritical legislation denying gays basic marriage, housing and employment protections. Hmmm with all that said I think they may be responsible for killing some gays.

But what ever, ISIS is bad so we shouldn't let any Muslims into the country because the US cares about gay people. HA!

Religious fundamentalism is religious fundamentalism. Just because the Muslims get more headlines doesn't mean the Christians who perpetuate homophobia aren't just as damaging in their own spheres of influence within our "culture".

On what basis do you conclude all of this? You could say that a reasonable portion of Donald Trump supporters fit those standards but by no means all do; you've just essentially made sweeping assertions.

And in fairness, the 'easier to manipulate' comment can be applied to any supporters of *any* politician--that's what they do.

People who feel they have no voice, and is unheard. Is this person...you.

I am a Trump supporter, and I don't consider myself to be particularly ignorant.

Explain your answer please. Don't be cryptic either. Thank you.

What is there to say? You claimed that Trump supporters are "homogeneous", meaning that the blanket labels which followed applied to all Trump supporters. You claimed that they are "not quite as educated", who "believe as they do because they are easier to manipulate." I am a Trump supporter, and I don't fit the above description.

CNN calls them uneducated.

You said it because CNN does? Right.

I was just being nice. But anyway, many of them are misguided dogmatic bigots who think that Trump is a savior. Anything else you wanna add.

Overgeneralization/stereotypes

People who take issue with diversity or multiculturalism
What is the issue with opposing this?

All societies are multicultural in some way (you don't even have to be part of another race to actually have another culture.)

People who are fearmongers.

Wow, what a convincing forum topic. This forum topic of childish insults and buzzwords ought to really hurt those dang trump supporters!
