The ethnic vote and Trump

Reader comment on item: Why I'm Voting for Trump

Dr. Pipes,

The Democrats seem to believe that supporting legal as well as illegal immigration is the key to the ethnic vote. They do not seem to be aware that many immigrants have escaped countries run by communists and socialists, dictators, war torn countries, Islamists, bankrupt countries and violence against LGBT members and violence against women. And these groups seek the freedoms that the US Constitution offers.

I urge readers to check YouTube for the many videos in the last few days by Armenians for Trump, Chinese and Thai and Vietnamese and Koreans for Trump. Indians for Trump. Middle Eastern for Trump (Noor Ben Laden's article is a great example of the feelings of many members of the Middle East communities be it Muslims or Christians). Cubans for Trump and it is a very long list

Would this translate into vote for Trump? We just have to wait and see. However, I have no doubt that the ethnic communities in the US are not happy with the riots and the looting and the curbs on free speech by the new elite in Silicon Valley.

I read an article by a Middle Eastern woman who escaped an arranged marriage where she is lamenting about her distress for witnessing such violence and then she wrote (and I'm paraphrasing) that those rioting have never had a bad day in their lives and have no idea what is socialism/communism or the abuse of women in her native country.

This would be a very interesting study to check and find: Did the ethnic vote went to Trump or to the misguided Democrats and their 72 genders

Excellent point. Immigration is not all favorable to the Democrats.
