    Are the anti-Trump demonstrations justified or hypocritical?

    I have been following the news covering demonstrations against Donald Trump and some of his policies, the recent one being against his ban on most Middle Eastern and Islamic immigrants.  However these are people who have constantly faced harrasment (ever since 9/11) for simply being (not just muslim) but  because they "look" like terrorists. We have had cases of Arabs being overly checked in Airports. This is not to mention the racial discrimination the African Americans have endured till date. Are Trump's actions however unorthodox a reflection of the true hidden thoughts of American people?

    no, not the american people, as you can see by the protests...but a minority of america that has taken hold of power here. years ago, they would get away with racism and bigotry, no problem. not any more.
    they are out of step with 2017 america...this is a square peg adm trying to fit in a round hole country. they are trying to please people like benjamin netanyahu and vladimir putin, rather than face the reality of the people they serve.
    its not gonna work this time. white supremacy, judeo- christian supremacy...its over. and if any terrorists are here, of whatever variety, our people are ready and able to deal with it. have been for some time!
    the best thing they could do to make us safer is get the gd guns out of here!! but that will never happen. so while they try n make us all hate muslims--for bibi and vlad, they'll keep taking money from the nra, guns will keep proliferating, and none of us will be any safer.
    mothers of the movement, and hillary clinton. thats who was trying to end terror.
    50cent:"i live in a f'n war zone, and i aint even in the military"
    usa....for usa!

    These people didn't complain when Obama suspended Muslim migrants for six months in 2011 because the State Department might have let some terrorists in.
    They didn't demonstrate when our lax policies let in the San Bernadino shooters or OSU attacker or Tsarnev brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon.
    They are guilty of misplaced compassion for Muslims inconvenienced instead of the victims of Muslim terrorism, honor killings, rape gangs, and Islamic demands for Shariah law. They value the Muslim migrant who wants a better life and may endorse killing the natives over the women who have to cover up to not be sexually assaulted by Muslim men, the sex segregation and rolling back of secularism in schools because Muslims demand prayer rooms on public property, the erosion of human rights because Muslims issue death threats against homosexuals and threaten to kill critics of Islam though it is still OK to blaspheme and censor Christians for their faith because they don't resort to violence on a regular basis.
