I'm sure Italy, Russia, Poland, etc. qualified as that during most of the XIX and first half of the XX century. Was Germany a shitty place during the 30's and 40's?

I can’t wait for Awwshuck to spin this one.....SAD

 

specially coming from Arkansas... part of the Meth/Bible belt of the nation, but that's ok because they're poor because Obama's recovery wasn't good enough. LOL

Shit hole countries?

 

According to a Time magazine article, one billion people have no access to toilets and have no choice but to poop in public. This is a real problem that affects impoverished areas, such as in sub-Saharan Africa where as many as 39 million people are without a toilet. It has led to unsanitary conditions and the spread of disease.

 

Many countries around the world, such as Thailand, get by without using any toilet paper. Instead, they use what is comically called a bum gun. The bum gun is a hose that hangs beside the toilet. After pooping, people use the hose to clean off their bottom. Now, you might be wondering how they dry off afterwards. Apparently, they don’t. Instead, people that use a bum gun are quite efficient at cleaning with the hose without getting themselves all wet.

 

In ancient Rome, the public bathrooms were a bit more public than most of us are used to. People would sit on stone slab toilets set up, one next to each other, and go to the bathroom. When they finished their business, they grabbed a wet sponge tied to a stick and wiped their bums with that. It was the same sponge stick used by all, and helped to spread bodily parasites from one person to the next.

 

Oh shit!

I much prefer water to toilet paper. Not that I'd want to use a hose specifically, but a built in bidet is always welcome.

This country has a long, inglorious history of denigrating immigrants. Following a wave of Irish immigrants, signs saying "IRISH NEED NOT APPLY" were often next to "HELP WANTED" signs. And the same for Italians, and Germans, and Poles at various times.

 

Some of us find it distasteful to the max. Others want to return to those days.

I declare myself to be a proud honorary citizen of every shithole nation on this planet and would renounce any and allegiance to Trump Nation in the process.

What were England and France as colonial powers doing in Africa all those years that allowed the continent to be in such poverty?

Taking much of the wealth, setting up borders that ignored the distribution of indigenous populations, etc. Not that Britain and France were the only colonists active in Africa of course.

I think the real point of this is not that he said it - it's hardly out of character, much less shocking - but rather that it resonates with a good number of Americans.

 

These are the people to whom the "America first, fuck everybody else" Trump mantra rings true. There's allot of people out there who are nodding their heads to his comment.

 

The difference is that they used to nod silently, ashamed to express a view so contrary to our core principles.

Trump has made it OK to nod publicly and loudly (torch and brown shirt optional).

Once again, the president's remarks are taken out of context by liberals lookin for a story. First of all, the conversation in question concerned the plight of the North Korean people under Kim Jong Un. Here are the president's words: "He's (Kim Jong un) made that place a prison.Those poor people live in a shithole"

 

Secondly, the folks who leaked this erroneous account of the president's words sleep with the fishes

Mine definitely did. In the late 19th century Italians (and particular southern Italians) were despised across the United States. At one point a quota was placed on Italians being allowed into the country and thus many Italian immigrant ended up in Canada and Argentina. I have cousins who live in Buenos Aires which is not a bad place to live. The population of Italians in Buenos Aires is high and living in Buenos Aires has a very continental (European) air to it. As far as America, at the very end of the 19th century hatred of southern Italians was particularly high. To further discriminate against southern Italians (who were considered to be mixed with African blood) when immigrants arrived in New York it was noted on their naturalization papers whether they were from the "north" or from the "south". Those from the north were given preferential treatment. Southern Italians were so despised that the greatest mass lynching ever committed in the U.S. was committed against Sicilians living in New Orleans in 1891.

Yes he apparently really said we need more immigrants from countries like Norway. Little does he know, very few Norwegians would have any interest in emigrating to the US. Life is pretty good in Norway as far as they are concerned. The Moron in Chief is so clueless.

I assume you know this, but my "like" expresses my appreciation of your post putting things into historical context, not my approval of the discrimination against non WASPS and lynching

By the standard you set in your post Trump's mother comes from a shithole country too. When she was a child indoor plumbing and electricity would have been rather unusual on the Isle of Lewis. It's quite likely she grew up with neither.

London had shantytowns in the Victorian era. Such a shithole was the heart of the British Empire...
