"I'm a believer in truth, regardless of how controversial it might be. And I understand in the America that we live in today, that people have been conditioned like the Pavlovian dog of the textbooks to react emotionally to certain things, and often in an uncontrolled, frenzied fashion, unfortunately."
Well, we don't think it's "unfortunate" at all for people to "react emotionally" when certain individuals blatantly preach discrimination.
But if you thought that was bad, just wait. Mr. Tyler continued:
"When I designed the 'Make America White Again' billboard, it was specifically to engender in people's minds a thought process that would take them back to, let's say, the 1960s. I call it the Leave It To Beaver, [The Adventures of] Ozzie and Harriet, Mayberry America. I and many, many, many, many, many, many others believe that was a better America."
Wait. Can someone explain to us how wanting to return to a decade where racial segregation was very much alive and well is NOT racist?!
He's literally just listing TV shows with no minority cast members.
What's worse, he continued to defend his sign by saying the high number of violent crimes that have arisen in the decades since what he describes as "Norman Rockwell America," appear to be related to the growing percentage of "non-white" Americans.
But Rick said he doesn't harbor any ill will towards "people of color."
We honestly can't roll our eyes enough right now. Watch his INSANE explanation (below):
Sara Beltran-Hernandez, a 26-year-old mother-of-two, was awaiting an emergency surgery for a brain tumor this week -- but was instead forcibly moved by federal agents from the hospital to a detention center following Donald Trump's immigration ban.
A little background: Beltran-Hernandez was seeking asylum in the United States as a victim of domestic abuse in El Salvador back in November 2015 when she was picked up by immigration agents on her way to New York to visit her mother.
She's been detained in Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas ever since -- until she was hospitalized in Fort Worth after a doctor discovered the brain tumor.
