Abigail Girard Mrs. Rolfs AP Language 16 October 2016 Eugene Robinson in the article, Trump May Be Worse Than Just a Pig, explains that Republican nominee for President is an angry sexual predator who uses his fame and wealth to get what he wants, and is losing supporters daily. Robinson supports his suggestion by first explaining how some republicans have abandoned Trump because of a recent tape released of Trump using vulgar words to describe what he does to women; this has made it impossible to pretend that the party has nominated a candidate that could be worthy of presidency. He then claims that Trump is always in a constant rage which causes him to make irrational decisions. Lastly, the author describes how some women have sued Trump,
He implements the idea that muslims are not worthy of being called a “who” instead he calls them a “that” implying they are not humans. Many think Trumps plan is outrageous and invades privacy but most importantly, violates the first amendment of the constitution. Trump states, “I want surveillance of these people, I want surveillance if we have to and I don 't care” (“Trump: Islam Hates Us”). When Trump uses the statement “I don 't care”, it shows how thoughtless he is towards the moral beliefs of Muslims. Demagoguery calls for Trump’s solutions to be the only right ones, because he thinks of himself as the only capable of making America great again.
This essay named Obama!!! Written by the American author and comedian David Sedaris, casts light on the blurred line between racism and being race conscious, stereotypes and prejudges, and his experience with it on his book tour around Europe at the time of president Obama’s election. Sedaris also tries to prove how despite the general opinion, Europe might actually be more racist than the United States of America. Repeatedly throughout the essay, Sedaris talks about the Europeans thinly veiled prejudice against him, as a white American male. Though, it is considered rude for him to ask them about their political views, they don not hesitate to ask him about his thoughts on Obama, and the possibility that he could be the very first black president.
Peter, by these condemnations, believes in the importance of the dialogue between the different faiths. He refutes any call to deepen the gap between religions because he considers it the main reason of the intolerance and hatred people of different faiths express against each other. He mentions” ACT tries to dissuade Jews and Christians from conducting interfaith dialogue with Muslims.” Furthermore, the political involvement the American Congress For Truth (ACT), is very hazardous. He lists different politicians, who hold very critical positions in the government and are part of ACT, such as Michael Flynn, CIA director Mike Pompeo, counterterrorism advisor Sebastian Gorka…. Plus, he mentions the influence of ACT on the new president and how it “shaped” his campaign.
We having established our political view into these countries means they can be more like America. Even though I get criticized on many of the things I do as president of the United States, I still feel that my voicing over these country that we as American’s have, should make up for me being “weak” as the president. Even opinions from the press has dimmed me in a bad light as the president. Since the spanish foreign policy I have also dealt with the repercussions, but I feel as if you can’t please everybody in America as the president. People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned.
A bias that I have developed so far in this class is that it made me cynical. I have developed this through readings in which people have used their discourse to manipulate others. A big factor in this bias is the book Holy Terrors, in which Osama bin Laden and George Bush are using discourse to manipulate the people of their countries to join in their political agenda, even if they are in the wrong. Bush telling the media that they could only broadcast certain clips of Osama, so that people would not feel as though he is just another leader trying to do good for his people. Bush wanted us to feel like Osama was evil and this played a big role on my cynical views.
Explaining that a group of “ about 350 million people” (14) are worried for their lives surely is enough to invoke sympathy within the reader. He also includes a quote from Robert Clinton, which reads, “the involuntary exploitation of our annexation… or the involuntary expansion” (14). By including this quote, Echo-Hawk catches the reader’s eye because the idea “involuntary exploitation” on behalf of the European settlers is an absurd idea because expansion was obviously voluntary, which leads the reader to sympathize with the Natives rather than a group that lies in a way to justify its actions. He also uses the pathos appeal when he talks about “white man’s burden” (16) and when he describes how Spaniards were doing their noble duty of colonizing, but spoke Spanish while telling the Natives that they were
I am writing to you today on the behalf of my 8th grade literacy class, because I would like to tell you want my views are on refugees from middle east countries. I personally feel that we should let these refugees into the United States of America. This is because they are innocent people caught in the middle of a civil war. However, people are still making untrue claims and assumptions against these people just because they were born in the middle east. Some statement you might hear is that since these people are Muslim they are terrorist, but in their religion, Islam they practice peace and helping others.
While Bush displays disgust to the King case, and how it had played out later in the speech, calling it “revolting”, it has an ingenuine undertone by his earlier statements towards the rioters and excluding what they had been rioting for. Bush uses “brutality” in a derogatory way, smoothing over the rioter’s cause. Presidents do not have the option to display their true feelings towards a situation, because they must remain neutral for the nation. However, the harsh condemnation of the riots are not neutral, and brushes over the King tragedy, immediately going to the “justice will be served, because America is fair and free.” narrative that destroys any condemnation there was for the justice system originally in reference to the King case. Since 1988, the Justice Department has successfully prosecuted over 100 law enforcement officials for excessive violence.
In a research conducted by L. John Martin (1985), results showed that "terrorism" was used by the media in describing horrific incidents caused by Arabs. Yet, when representing similar events by individuals who are not Arabs, the media was careful to appear equitable and unbiased. Oklahoma City bombing is a perfect example to further support this claim, “the blast was set off by anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh”, the media were careful not to call him a terrorist and put the blame on one man rather than blaming an entire religion for his actions. The media lead Americans to blame 911 on Muslims although our religion clearly opposes terrorism. “Those who go to extremes are doomed”.
It leaves the readers in doubt about how many other stories are similar to Omar’s story about his brother. The writers executed well the truth about the story of Turkey that caused the world to pray for peace. In other words, the reader does recommend others to read this article because it contains valuable information about the terrorist attack. The article makes the reader realize how much fear and harm that is happening worldwide. It makes the readers value their life especially since other countries do not have freedom compare to the United
Trump took the role of the victim and dismantled the immigration system in the name of a slogan: “Make America Great Again.” This is his ideology; his constituency chooses to analyze the issue of immigration through this lense rather than grappling with the issue as a whole, asking critical questions, and determining the best solution. This cycle occurs because people live in a myth of sacrifice, wherein individuals are spiteful because of their mimetic desires. Mimetic rivalry inspires violence which motivates people to unify and blame a scapegoat. What the oppressor- Trump’s constituents- fail to realize is that the unity is only temporary; the scapegoat mechanism does not work and sacrificing is not the solution. Blaming immigrants for unemployment and crime rates is a diversionary tactic that avoids looking internally and realizing that these issues are the result of the inability of the white man to accept responsibility for his actions.
Durbin not only supported such a group, he was was the driving force to in attempting to acquire civil rights for Muslim Americans. In doing such a thing, he was putting his career on the line. It was very likely that he would lose supporters by supporting Muslims, since they are a group that is very discriminated against. He knew this and continued forward in what he was doing. Though he did not get the rights Muslim Americans, he did draw attention to how wrong some public opinions about Muslim Americans are (Shariah).
