    Trump to cancel student visas...

    Note: I'm sharing news not opining on anything.

    It's Fox "news"... a fair prior warning to us sensitive SJW types would've been appreciated.

    Anyway, I saw it long enough to see the massive banner on screen pointing out that it was about students with ties to CCP's military schools.

    Omitting that wee crucial bit actually makes your comment less news and more opining, since you specifically brought that up. FWIW.

    It was not an intentional omission. I assumed readers would continue into the video I shared (but did not opine on).

    But police can talk about “killing cockroaches” at all times without any repercussions.

    That clearly looks like hate speech and inciting violence. Surely that is against the law?
