    Don’t worry it’s a hate group just like SS of Nazis talking about foreigners taking away jobs from Germany. Hitler enabled them in 1930 and Dotard now.

      Moron, I am comparing with holocaust crimes, gas chambers and killing of gypsies. Our ancestors from Romania but escaped Germany.

      Don’t tell me how to measure hate.

      You call me a moron, but your sentence, “The hate we are seeing right now may not be on the scale as Nazis but in 1920 there was very less hate crimes or speeches in Germany.” can only be interpreted as an analogy — i.e. 1920s Germany is to current US as Nazi Germany is to future US, which is a completely bunk analogy. But sure, throw insults into the mix. That definitely makes your point sound.

      Classic Fox News junkie, divert the discussion. My point is you can’t underestimate hate and ignore by saying it is all about jobs and nothing towards foreigners.

      Everything starts as small and someone like Dotard/Hitler will nurture it. But I have hope that Nuremberg/Muller trails will prevail in the end.

      I directly addressed your comment. That’s not diversion. I don’t watch Fox News. I don’t read Breitbart. You can throw up straw men as fast as you can, but you don’t know me. The only thing you know is that I don’t agree with you on this topic, and that I’m asking you fulfill the burden of proof, rather than make vague insinuations and demand I read between the lines in your specific way in order to reach your (to your own admission) indirect conclusions.

      Oh, your great grandmother lived in Germany? I'm sorry for questioning your logically sound argument.

    Lol. Hope some patriot doesn't get inspired and act on some 650k FANG engineer thinking he's 'taking away' his job.

    I visited bay area recently and was surprised how 'diverse' the neighborhoods are... I mean, this shit will NOT fly in Bellevue. In places like South center they don't care anyway. People of all ethnicities seem to live in all middle class neighborhoods in Bay area (not talking about the upper middle class ones like Hillsborough or Atherton of course).

      Not fly in Bellevue? Is it racist out there?

      No. 'This shit' = ad in the OP.

      Bellevue is very Asian, usually including the mayor. Everyone in the city knows most Asians they encounter are millionaires, they just keep their racist thoughts if any to themselves and move on.

      My point was that Seattle metropolitan region is reasonably segregated, so you can go live where you want. Well off Asians in Bellevue, non tech Asians in international district, well paid Indians in Redmond, low paid Indians in Issaquah, well paid white people in Queen Anne, Fremont, University district, Green lake not so well paid white people in Columbia City, etc.

      When the cultures meet wherever, people are respectful of each other.

      Interestingly enough Trump said he prefers to reform the system rather than abolish it.

      Though he says many things.

    Thanks for sharing and happy Friday to you. When I see content like this, it makes me positively motivated to save more money and increase my income further to prepare for an adversity. 🤓🤑.

    Ha :) most of the Bart riders are immigrants - I am not sure if this message is targeted to the right audience :) sure Bart needs money and thanks to the ads. Its already a useless overpriced transport, always late and broken down - sadly lacking options .

    What a waste of money as 90% of BARt riders are either on H1, or have been on H1 in the past of work with multiple people on H1 at their workplace

    This is ironic because 40% of bart riders are from foreign countries. I hope there won't be any attacks

    I guess this kind of hate will create unnecessarily bad/ toxic/highly competitive environment for all ( including US workers) . I hope Congress and Donald trump will make visa process more welcoming for STEM professionals.

    All they want is publicity. They are getting exactly that.
