    No, it is not fair. But live in a world where merely standing next to a person can label you a 'terrorist' (other than janitorial services or package delivery), then this creep of categorizing everybody on the most unsubstantial 'evidence' is not only useless but dangerous.

    From: The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist

    https://theintercept.com/2014/07/23/blacklisted/

    " ...  confounding and convoluted system filled with exceptions to its own rules, and it relies on the elastic concept of “reasonable suspicion” as a standard for determining whether someone is a possible threat. Because the government tracks “suspected terrorists” as well as “known terrorists,” individuals can be watchlisted if they are suspected of being a suspected terrorist, or if they are suspected of associating with people who are suspected of terrorism activity."

    No, it’s not fair. Just as Trump has KKK and neo-Nazi followers, Clinton has Communists, Marxists, and Anarchists on her side. While Trump has to answer for his extremist supporters, Clinton never has to do the same. While Trump has brought up some issues that the mainstream is scared about, like building a wall and making Mexico pay for it, he is simply trying to maintain an American culture and identity. Liberals continue to push for diversity for its own sake, not trying to better American society in any way. The KKK are a crazy bunch of white nationalists that in no way represent the greater collection of Trump supporters.

      You forgot Hillary's personal adviser, Huma Abedin, a Muslim who worked for a front organization for the terrorist organization "The Muslim Brotherhood", her along with her mother and sister.

    Not only isn't it fair, it is absurd. The other day Hillary received the endorsement of the KKK. Have you heard about it on the MSM?

      The KKK never endorsed Clinton.On the same US & world report article it says that the one kkk  member endorsing clinton is doing it to help trump.you have to have at least something believable when floating out a conspiracy theory

    When the KKK and former grand wizard David Duke endorsed Mr. Trump, Trump was sloth-like slow to disavow or refuse those endorsements.  Instead he feigned ignorance about the KKK organization and about David Duke.  There is ample proof that Trump was and is well aware of what both the KKK organization and Duke represent and stand for.

    Not condemning the KKK organization or it’s former leader is just one more example of Trump’s poor judgment.  Playing dumb really was dumb on his part.  It’s looks like he wanted his cake and to eat it too.  Keep the endorsements and likely votes that went with them from racists and their sympathizers while pretending to the rest of us who find the KKK and David Duke deplorable at best, that he knew nothing about the KKK and Duke, in order to get our votes too. 

    How deeply embedded must one’s head be in a dark moist place not to know what the KKK is, and what it stands for??

    Mr. Trump puts his foot in it at least once a day and no matter how many of his advisors advise him against certain things, he insists on plowing through anyway.  If alive, even Freud would wonder if Trump isn’t subconsciously (or perhaps consciously?) trying to lose this election.

    As for playing the smear game, one should be careful.  What goes around comes around.  When you engage in repugnant practices you shouldn’t be surprised if you get some of it on yourself.

      Romney got 27% of Hispanic vote in 2012 and lost cuz it wan't enough.  Can't win without at least 40% Hispanic vote and Trump will likely get zero with his insults to that community.

      he will probably get about 15 % of the Hispanic vote  and 4 % black vote .If percent of  white uneducated  doubles from previous elections is only way he can win.

      If  playing dumb really was dumb on his part then isn't he just plain stupid?

      He's not  dumb.It's his strategy  to mobilize the base of the GOP , aka the tea party ,aka the Hannity,Limbaugh audience,in the hope that  millions of uneducated white that usually don't vote to vote for him

      ptosis, the thing Trump supporters are fondest of, his lack of political savvy, is killing him.  And he's too bull headed to take advice from the people he's paying thousands of $ to give him.  He just keeps putting his foot in it as a result.

    The KKK is a product of the Democrat party

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan

    "In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party,"

    Former Democrat senator Robert Byrd was a very high official in the KKK organization.  According to an article in the Washington Times, the KKK has donated $20,000 to the Hillary campaign.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/201 … ton-campa/

    Hillary has yet to address this allegation.  Some claim it is a hoax, but they can not provide any hard evidence...only opinions.

    So, why isn't the same level of media scrutiny given to Hillary and her KKK endorsements as it is with Trump's KKK connection?

    If you try to link Trump to the KKK...you would also have to link Hillary to the KKK as well. You would at least ask her the same number of questions about it as has Trump been asked about his connections.

      The Southern Democrats from Civil War era.  What is today the Republican Party.Check your history.  Lincoln's Republican Party wasn't the same one as today.  The KKK organization hasn't contributed to any Democrat.

      Senator Byrd repented and  Came to Jesus.The Washington times wasn't able to provide any evidence of that unsubstantiated claim.The KKK never endorsed her. A KKK member trying to help trump said that and was debunked.check your conspiracy theories

      Hillary should still be made to respond the accusation of a KKK contribution to her campaign.  Her silence on the subject speaks volumes. Trump has been required to respond to accusations.  Lets be fair here.

      USNews:  Will Quig is not credible and there is no hard evidence he has made any contribution to the Clinton campaign.  http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/201 … -president

      C E Clark you need to read your US News article a little closer. NO hard evidence the contribution didn't happen.  Just an opinion from a person from an organization. Why hasn't Clinton or one of the people in her campaign dismissed this?
