He really is an openly racist person.

That list of tweets is dripping with racism. If you don't believe me, try this experiment: Reverse all instances of "white" and "black" in his tweets and repost them. See how fast your account comes down. If someone started tweeting about "black tears" you can bet the shitstorm would be legendary.

For democrats it's exactly about feelings (since you seem hazy on the subject). The Dems spent half the election playing the race card whenever and wherever they could. Now you're saying they don't mind talking about it? After they spent all that time labeling everyone who wasn't 100% in line with them a bigoted racist in such an amazing effort to stifle the discussion? What a bunch of bullshit. This had exactly nothing to do with "treating people like people" because the points they were attacking had nothing to do with trampling the civil rights of legal citizens. It had everything to do with stemming the flow of illegals in to the country.

You almost immediately bring up "Oh, won't someone think of the children?" - more "it's about feelings" moves. It's like you're memorized the Hillary playbook line for line, Guess what, it doesn't fucking matter. If you came here illegally and you brought your kids, your children are here illegally. Don't put that on the government, put that on the moronic mother and father who knew exactly what they were doing. Pumping out a kid does not suddenly legitimatize your illegitimate entry in to the country either. Deport them all. It's time. If they want back in, let them go through the proper channels. Once you're there with citizenship papers nobody will have a problem with it.

I don't understand why these issues are so hard for you to figure out. If you let people walk all over your immigration laws then they don't mean anything. You may as well just remove the border and leave a welcome mat that says "feel free to abuse our country".

Point is: you are a fucking idiot.

Uh, but that's exactly what people who come in to the country illegally are: illegal immigrants. Why the fuck should we suddenly have to change the language to accommodate the feelings of the people who break the laws of the country?

What's interesting is anything you don't seem to agree with immediately becomes a "straw man" ... and then you wonder why Hillary lost.

Trump didn't encourage anyone to patrol the streets looking for anyone. That's an idea that some people came up with all on their own, and I don't think it's fair to pin that on Trump. This is why it's getting harder and harder to take liberals seriously and with no contempt. They continually take a situation and twist it to the point where it means whatever suits their current agenda. Facts be damned.

Blacks and Latinos had nothing to do with why Trump is in office. Trump is in office because a lot of people lost faith in the status quo the government was trying to maintain. They didn't necessarily want Trump, they just wanted someone different than the standard ruling families that have been controlling the country for far too long. Hillary is about as charismatic as a piece of particle board, and spent a great deal of her time insulting the average white american which had the effect of galvanizing a large portion of the public against her. Then her supporters actively started a hate campaign against trump supporters which was very loud, childish and sometime violent which didn't help matters at all. Add to this that the DNC basically got caught trying to rig the primaries. Hillary and the Democrats spent a whole lot of time repeatedly shooting themselves in the foot, so is it any surprise that the man who wasn't supposed to have a snowball's chance in hell of winning did far better than anyone expected? Their entire campaign from start to finish was an amateur hour disaster.

Hillary is so blatantly incompetent that I'm frankly quite happy that Americans didn't have to put up with her special brand of stupidity.

Some people aren't even that subtle. For example, take Manveer Heir the openly racist developer at Bioware who makes no secret how much he hates all white people by broadcasting it all over Twitter. This is really the problem, they only consider it racism if it's hate speech directed at certain select groups.
