Only if you are genetically superior.
Appalling. Needs touched by propaganda tag.
>>Mr. Khan has a legitimate point.
My heart goes out to him, I can't imagine how painful it is, but what is the point of this? In a Trump America his son would have been HYPOTHETICALLY marginalized? Clinton campaign IS using his murder as a political device. Is that better?
If any other politician used this shit, I'd see through it equally as well. Politicians are not your friends, practice skepticism.
I just find it gross, because they are taking advantage of grieving people in hopes of touching the voting public.
>>Or are you gonna go on about how Mrs. Khan wasn't allowed to speak?
Good point, I didn't notice.
"My heart goes out to him, I can't imagine how painful it is, but"
... inevitably followed by you demonstrating that your heart DOESN'T go out to him. Mr. Khan wants people to know about his son's sacrifice exactly because Trump has said demeaning, insulting things about people just like his son. If your heart went out to him -- let's not even pretend you're serious about that -- you would notice the sincerity in Mr. Khan's voice and the outrage that Trump would speak ill of Muslim-Americans. Repeatedly. And about the Khan family in particular.
If your heart went out to Mr. Khan at all, you might grasp why he is more than happy to lend his voice to Hillary's campaign.
"Politicians are not your friends, practice skepticism."
You aren't practicing skepticism so much as BLIND skepticism, which, like blind faith, is useless because it's blind.
The beginning of reason is the assumption that everything an authority says to you is wrong, followed by seeking physical demonstrable evidence of proof AND falsification.
I posted this for lurkers, not the retards who care nothing for the several hundred other Muslims who have faced this same fate, but lacked a political expediency for the fast lane of the bus.
This wouldn't enrage me if I didn't empathize. I found this painful to watch. I never questioned Khan's sincerity. I find it disturbing you assume I must not care about individuals because I question the motives of a political apparatus.
Maybe the coffin salesman took advantage, but shit, let's face it, it's a really nice coffin.
You're trying so hard to see through things, you can't see the obvious: that Mr. Khan very much wants Donald Trump defeated for legitimate reasons, and whether or not Hillary is his ideal candidate, he wants to help her win to make sure Trump loses. At worst, he and Hillary have aligning interests. It's also possible -- though you'd never admit it -- that Mr. Khan actually thinks Hillary might make for a good president. I don't know either way, but it's actually possible.
... and BTW, if your heart actually went out to him -- if you could empathize with him AT ALL -- you wouldn't need me to explain in small words that Mr. Khan is outraged at Trump and wants to take him down.
All you're capable of is rage at Hillary.
Clinton is no different than most career politicians, I don't hate her. What annoys me is real people who buy in so deeply to rhetoric if it happens to brush up against them. If you are moved by her speeches, may I also suggest reality tv and pro wrestling. Some other great people you should look into are Chase Bank and AT&T.
Fine, but let's return to the point that you have called this ad "appalling", you are "enraged" by it, and apparently you think Mr. Khan is some sort of fucking rube who is unaware of his own interests and cannot think for himself whether he wants to participate in an ad to take down Trump.
Such is the deep and abiding respect you have for Mr. Khan.
Pretty beautiful actually. I mean, it's an election ad, it's not trying to be subtle, but all it's actually saying is look: this Muslim family is human beings, and pretty great Americans at that. Wish more political messages appealed to the very best in us.
