Thread: Donald Trump thinks Tiananmen Square should have been put down.

  1. #1

    Donald Trump thinks Tiananmen Square should have been put down.

    An interview that Trump gave to Playboy in 1990 has just come to my attention. If I’m the last to know about it, forgive me. Trump was asked about Gorbachev — who was nearing the end of his time in power. Trump said, “Russia is out of control and the leadership knows it. That’s my problem with Gorbachev. Not a firm enough hand.” His interviewer asked, “You mean firm hand as in China?” Trump answered, “When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak … as being spit on by the rest of the world –”

    War; everything in the world wrong, evil and immoral combined into one and multiplied by millions.

    This single quote alone should disqualify him from being supported on RPF.... but no. Even so-called 'liberty advocates' think killing protestors is just fine, as long as it's our team doing the killing.

    Humans are so disappointing.
    There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

    Yes, they are.

    I had never seen this one before but what the hell, their are so many red flags about this man it is getting uncountable.

    It's a terrible thing to say, to be sure, but I still don't think that it nullifies that great good that he is doing as far as tearing down the establishment goes.

    Libertarians will have a lot more success with the Donald as their enemy, VS the current status-quo.

    It should do more than disqualify him of support. I would go as far as to suggest it should disqualify you of participating in these boards.

    I don't see how the discussion and support of a man who openly advocates for the murder of protesters, assassination of American citizens, committing war crimes, and disregarding due process fits within the mission statement here, but hey, that might just be me.

    The FFs said and DID a lot of horrible things but lots of 'liberty advocates' are fanboys of them. Humans can be very disgraceful. :P

    Voters don't give a $#@! about civil liberties of chinese citizens or illegal immigrants.

    The Chinese government should keep the China sea peaceful so not a single US fingernail is broken because Kelly Ayotte is an intelligent woman pushing back against chauvinist Don.

    Quoted for truth. They are willing to give up their liberties for it.
    A sense of danger gives birth to fear. And fear is the time-honored cross for the crucifixion of liberty.

    It should be pointed out that Trump's analysis was 100% correct. Gorbachev would be violently ousted from power by his own party and the entire Soviet system would collapse just a year later. Food for thought for those that question Trump's "foreign policy credential". He accurately predicted the results of Gorbachev's policy while the so called "experts" were caught completely by surprise.

    So Trump was right that Gorbachev and the KGB did not have a firm enough hand?

    Of course he was right. The government that put down Tiananmen Square is still in power. Gorbachev and his KGB friends are long gone. Objectively, there is no way you can argue with Trump's analysis. And remember, this is analysis. When Trump says Merkel is destroying her country and there are going to be riots and civil war he is explaining what is going to happen, not endorsing it.

    Of-course he does.

    He would have gone after the Bundy's AND their families.

    I think its safe to say that he sincerely feels that "authority" should never be challenged.

    He was only right in the sense that he prescribed the right formula to retain power for the ruling class. So apparently he understands how to be a dictator. g g gre aa tt....

    It means he understands reality- an important trait if you hope to conduct sensible foreign policy. And not that it has anything to do with anything, but I would remind you that in the wake of the collapse of the USSR the true global elites took over that entire country and plundered everything they could get their hands on.
