Yes, it’s a weird, yet seemingly more common sentiment being expressed by today’s Trumpkins… Seems to go along the lines of “Obama was a racist divider”, MAGA, and then finally “I love getting revenge on these liberals”. Im trying to think of a time in our country’s politics when the opposing party openly expressed such glee for undoing recent policies or tearing down government institutions that don’t sit well with the other side. But sure, keep repeating it… liberals are whining and freaking out.
Some have been loose cannons… and yes, some on the left have compared Bush to various dictators… as they have for Trump, though he seems to offer up supporting evidence for drawing such comparisons at nearly every opportunity. So, it’s the left that turns violent and unhinged, and not the right, eh? And yes, Im fully aware that some of your “alt-right goons” will attack lefties. There was a small episode in Charlottesville some time ago concerning confederate statues being removed, in case you’ve forgotten… one of your “goons” ran a car through a crowd and killed a young lady, injuring many others. But your side won’t defend these actions, you say? Some of them were “very fine people” according to Trump. Let’s not forget all the frame-by-frame review by the right… “He didn’t accelerate…”, “That guy jumped on the car to make it look like he got hit…”. If you call that defense, save it for yourself.
And of course, you have to chime in on the fake news media… no doubt the irony escapes as I’d be willing to guess you tune in to Rush, Infowars, etc. This statement right on the heels of Carlson telling his Fox viewers “always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations”. That’s right, can’t believe any other news media, except for what we report. This is paired with a constant rant by Trump of fake news put out by CNN, CBS, NYT, etc… anything critical of him, it’s all fake news. There’s never any supporting evidence offered, just blanket assertions… and yet Trumpkins swallow it up hook, line-and sinker. Trump has openly called for trying to remove the licenses of several reporting agencies he personally does not like, he has barred certain members from the WH Press Corps, he’s barred American news agencies from certain meetings while permitting those form other foreign nations. See, those sorts of actions do have an erry parallel to dictators of the past… it’s very Orwellian… and apparently very popular with the right who disingenuously wrap themselves in the flag claiming they’re the biggest patriots of all, while simultaneously tearing down our institutions.
Yes, there are a multitude of misconceptions. For example, you go on the fourth paragraph talking about liberals abandoning slavery and interment camps. Apparently you’re unaware that Trump recently enacted a zero-tolerance policy that literally resulted with kids locked in cages. Literally. Talk about being unaware… And apparently you’re one of those incredible genios that like to claim the KKK support Democrats, or the Democrats started it. Tell me, who did David Duke support in the last election? After that, tell me what policies the Republican party has pushed or supported in recent decades that support or promote the welfare or minority populations? Thanks in advance.
And finally, get your own gig… stop repeating the BS you hear on your AM radio on the drive to work and at lunch… that’s all the above is… one more brain-dead rant saying literally the same thing… “Liberals are whining”. “Liberals are losing it”. “Liberals are going to start violence.” Just check the forum listing… you guys are posting multiple threads every single day. It’s comical, if not so damn pathetic. Meanwhile, your side is the party that wants to ignore Russians interfering with our elections and our government, you turn a blind eye to Trump calling for disbarring many members of the press, or denying due process to either immigrants and in some cases gun owners, you openly support ripping apart families because they’re not American… this could go on and on and on. Trumpkins are whatever they’re told to be… you can call yourselves patriots or whatever your heart desires… we tend to look at you all as feckless puppets, lacking any degree of morality or integrity.
And yes, we can agree the Republic will be fine. Mid-terms are gonna be a bitch for the Republicans, and my favorite surprise of all… we’re still awaiting Mueller’s findings from his investigation
