This is just a small portion of what turned out to be a wild panel on last night's CNN with Don Lemon. Panelists were giving their take on Trump asking why we want immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti. Never-Trumper Rick Wilson went after conservative radio host John Fredericks for defending Trump:
"You know, hearing John's and of this overtly racist aspect of it, it shocks me that we still have people in this country -- don't bother calling yourself a conservative, if you don't believe there's a way where people who come and embrace the proposition of this country can become Americans," Wilson said.
"Because we've worked very hard in this country to accept people from around the world, and of varying backgrounds. I'm sure your ancestors here weren't descended from the Mayflower in some cloud of heavenly light. I'm sure they came here from Ireland, Germany, Italy or somewhere else. Back then, they were the shithole people, they were the people who were looked down upon.
"If this is a country that's based on a proposition that we have an American system, an American dream, an American framework that allows people to come here and work hard, and raise their families, and engage in society, and contribute to society, then your idea that these people should be bounded out of here, because they happen to come from the shithole countries is absurdly unAmerican, and unconstitutional.
"if you believe that, go on Amazon, order yourself a pointy white hat, head down to Home Depot and get the wood to build a burning cross. That's what you're talking about. That's where your attitude leads to."
