The Dems screaming about Trump's promises to secure the border are deafening. California is going off the deep end. They have hired Eric Holder, of all people, to help them in the process to resist our new administration's efforts to "get the job done!!"

I'm beginning to wonder if the Dems aren't exhibiting some strange mental behaviors, among them, selective amnesia. I'm being serious here.
Selective Memory disorder

This video is both funny and serious. It exposes this hypocrisy and I wonder if any of you old enough to remember back to the 90's, remember Bill Clinton's call to action? If you weren't paying attention to him, maybe you recall Obama's call to action?

Our media is the propaganda arm of the left and Democrat party. Everything they do is to advance their power and influence. Part of that is rewriting history through omission. When the media wants people to remember something, they repeat it over and over. When they want to general public to forget and be ignorant, they simply dont report it. It gives the mindless drones who watch a very partisan, one sided view of things.

You gotta stop living in the past.
That was almost 20 years ago.
Ancient history.
Lololol....
Sorry, I couldn't finish that without cracking up.

We have to re-educate them. We'll call the Camps "Safe Spaces." Have some crayons and "The Constitution " coloring book series. Some vids like this. Snacks. Nap time.

Progressives have the "history of now" meaning that whatever was said or done by them prior to this very moment is irrelevant. They are very adept at rewriting history to suit their needs or just omitting it altogether. Only now with the internet are people able to easily see this with their own eyes.

Just see Smuck Schumer with his fake tears about Trump while supporting the very same EO some 11 month's earlier when Obama did it.

When I ask this question, I'm not really being snarky, I'm being serious. Is there a propensity for people with a particular ideological or philosophical leaning far to the left, to be prone to an inability to remember things that would make them uncomfortable to remember currently, some sort of cognitive dissonance which comes about because of mental stress.

I think we all have the ability to display hypocrisy. But, what our fellow Americans on the far left are displaying now, goes beyond anything I have ever seen in my lifetime.

It appears to me, anyway, that a huge segment are literally losing their minds.

Do you see it, too? Does it seem much different this time around?

No they know exactly what they are doing.

Power at any cost.

Control at any cost.

They have done nothing but to attempt to further their own interest.

Their parties interest.

The greatest threat we all face right now.

Is the democratic party.

At the expense of the people.

Sooner or later the breaking point is going to be reached.

Trying to understand the hypocrisy is like trying to figure out if invisibility cloaks have really been invented by now.

Your post is thought-provoking. If those at the top leading this far left ideology know what they are doing, are they intentionally using their masses to take us to the breaking point?

Most of their base have been separated into identity pockets. Each of those pockets have been separated and stirred up by hyperbole, lies, and half-truths by certain celebrities, CrookedNewsNetworks, and establishment politicians. What we are left with are various groups that have taken insults, violence, and personal attacks to a whole new level.

You're right, neo...."sooner or later the breaking point is going to be reached". Is this really what those far left libs want?

You do realize there' s hypocrisy on both sides right? For example I don't see many Republicans opposed to the firing of Sally Yates even though Trump's own AG pick said this during her confirmation hearing:



We can go back and forth finding videos of one side saying something and then opposing it down the line. Hell, we have at least a few examples of Trump saying one thing in the morning and contradicting it in the afternoon. So stop trying to play the high and mighty game.

Sally Yates was fired for not following a lawful EO. The EO was determined to be lawful by the DOJ. Big difference and not what your video is trying to imply.

Try again...

I watched and listened to your contribution video.

The thing you didn't "hear", (no offense intended), is his question was if asked to do something unlawful by the president or any other agency, would she say no.

President Trump had already received the okay from the Justice Department's own Justice Office of Legal Counsel. His EO was approved and deemed perfectly legal.

So, your video is not applicable. Yates was not asked to do something illegal. Her "feelings" about the EO did not matter. The EO was lawful, determined by her own department, and approved for execution. She refused to execute a lawful order.

Again...no offense...but many liberal minds are unable to see and hear with an accurate eye and ear. Understand what I'm saying?

Yes they are.

Yes.

It's what they want.

They want us at each others throats. That's how they maintain power. That's how they get to push their agenda through.

In their twisted little minds, and they are little. They are the only people that should be in power.

Everyone else is suppose to get on their knees, and let them do whatever they want.

That's some interesting stuff, xuenchen. hmmmm....something to ponder indeed. Looked up a bit of info, but I'm going to do some further research on that when I have time.

It's about "in-group" versus "out-group".

Similar to rooting for one's favorite sports team while hating the rival team's supporters with a passion, it's ingrained in us through our evolution.

The context here just happens to be politics rather than sports or prehistoric tribalism.

It works both ways, although each side tends to be blind to its own unconscious tendencies.

Not a big mystery. People are driven mainly by deep instinct, not reason.

They are no insane, queensofsword, what happen is very simple, is a meltdown, the real hard working tax payer American doesn't want them anymore, because they can not longer identified themselves with the Democratic leadership.

Schumer was the biggest example of how un-American and anti American they have become.

So the Democrats have not choice but to pander to illegals, immigrants and refugees, they need votes and that is the only reason they are sucking up to them.

If it wasn't for those minority groups in few states that they won, they would no have gotten any states at all. That is the biggest slap a political party can get in an election.

Sadly they are not trying to fix their voting problem, because the more they become anti American citizens in the nation, the less their faithful base of their party will stick with them.

The democratic leadership even shape up or they will go into oblivion and the party will be taken by certain groups that no American will want to deal with.

Because obviously rather than pandering to their faithful voter base they are still sticking to the vocal minority that have no respect for Americas values and what it represent.

I see it. I'm really not being snarky either. Thankfully millions of others see it too. I am generally concerned however at how many people do NOT see it. It's verging on not even being about politics anymore, the left is becoming a very dangerous cult with a massive amount of members.

I wish I had a better way to describe it, but it really is like we all woke up one day in the Twilight Zone.
