True Facts -vs- Offended Sensibilities

“Tough Language” dichotomy

…erm, would any half-sensible human walk hundreds of miles cross country, ride train-tops, stagger across deserts, swim rivers or raft open seas with just what they can carry — risking rape, mayhem, and murder — to flee a Tropical Paradise?

Where my Carney ancestor lived in Roscommon is now home to a famine museum. The family that stayed, died. We came from a “s–thole country.”

He’s right: here. …complete with “Irish Famine Summer School
[ Political Indoctrination? ...or Fat Camp?]

TuCa nails it:

Option A: El Salvador isn’t a “shithole,” so they don’t need 17 years of Temporary Protected Status, and migrants from there should be sent home immediately. Option B: El Salvador is, in fact, a “shithole.”

Controversy! »

Was it “Shittehole” or “Shittehouse” ???

    Well, according to the latest (unproven) social theory, that genetic issue makes no difference. If you two would like to identify as sisters, go right ahead, and the LGBTEJUFVGH’s will erect a monument to you and allow you to use any bathroom you xhe…xhzu…??? like.

    Average American regarding shithole comment: Not seeing the problem.

    Just wondering – if the locations of origin were not shitholes, why then, did they want to leave?
    After all, we have nothing to equal this quaint market.

    I hope Trump’s preparing an answer for the inevitable question “Which countries are shitholes?” so that he doesn’t just blurt out “the brown ones”
    LMAO!
