Harry Gomez of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is getting a barrage of hate from Trump fans.

I have wondered how I can objectively point out that Trump encourages hate. I find myself searching for the best response when a friend at a party or a person in politics excuses Trump by arguing that he is “saying important things” or “tapping into something that is real.”


Perhaps I could show them messages like these …

March 14, 2016: “Since we’re stereotyping maybe we should start asking to see your green card. You a spic or a beaner?” – @HurtinCowboy, via Twitter…

June 30, 2016: “just another liberal a_ _!!!!! u people should all be on the other side of the wall”…

July 13, 2016: “You have been always been [sic] a biased reporter IMO [in my opinion], but now you are an obvious and clear bigot that is inflaming the political situation. Your obvious latino background (dark, short, fat) should preclude/disqualify you from the political scene in this presidential election.
