And no, that is not what he only mentioned. If you read his post carefully, he clearly supports the idea that being xenophobic will be proven to be incorrect by history. Xenophobia is not racism inherently. It is the idea that people oppose things that are strange to them, or fear them even.
In terms of this discussion it is clearly a substitute for "people who oppose immigration of any sorts". If opposing immigration of any sorts is racist or not is up for debate, I guess.
Additionally he calls them "jerks", which clearly shows his negative attitude towards those people.
Furthermore, if you'd read his posts he is clearly in favor of immigration of any sorts, which is what my post addresses, even if the quote I chose was incorrect my points remain as they are regardless.
First, I've never made being xenophobic and being anti-immigration synonymous. I've made the justification for the travel ban synonymous with being xenophobic, since almost all the justification being provided has been xenophobic in nature.
Second, I said "knee jerk", as in impulsive or reactionary.
Third, none of my posts have shown my position on immigration. All of them have been on my position on the travel ban. They are related, but different, subjects.
