Alphas do not need to be some Neanderthal muscle headed ass. In my 28 years in the military...


You keep referring to the "Alpha vs. Beta male" ideology, yet you spent 28 years serving in the military because you have an unconscious beta-minded mentality.

How does one voluntarily submit to having their personal identity stripped to become a puppet and a clone; trained to act in an obedient and a subservient manner—being told when and where to wake, sleep and eat; trained how to speak, act and think, etc; and yet celebrate what it means to be an Alpha-male for half a dozen comments in this thread...?

I don't know how old you are or what you have done before and after the military but YOU have dedicated at least 28 years of your life to being a beta-male...



If Trump stoops for a frail man trying to put their highest honor around his neck that is what he needed to do...end of story. Something I don't think you can understand... sorry beta...


There you go again with calling others "beta". Since we are on the topic of 'Alpha vs. Beta':

This following photo ties into the thread and the OP's thought-process as well—so I will tag him and quote his words here as well—since you both seem to like entertaining irony:

It's nice to see a return to a time when not only was the USA the biggest, meanest dog on the porch, but we had zero concern over reminding the world frequently of that fact.




Look at your so called "alpha male" President's body language. Look at how *submissive* he is when he *stoops*. Look at his eyes looking down instead of at the Saudi KING's face. This doesn't scream alpha-male. This screams "ultimate cuck". In fact, he also CURTSIED like a little girl at the end of *stooping*.

Btw, the OP referred to symbolism or what the GIF "summarized" in his opening comment:



This gif summarizes what made America great up until politicians like Jimmy Carter and Hollywood made a show over whitewashing the strength of the United States when in the presence of lesser nations' leadership.


Look at the symbolism of the photo above. Here we find a sycophant at his finest receiving his COLLAR like a dog would. The *placing* of the CHAIN around the POTUS neck is very symbolic, not only of a beta-male, but also of what makes America what is is today—weak when in the presence of OIL and MONEY.

Don't be so sure...we have about 500,000 years of this behavior to the maybe 100 of what you suggest.

Alpha males don't remain alpha males until old age. They are replaced by younger stronger members of the pack.

If it was applicable there would be only one, while you keep talking of many, and Trump wouldn't be it.

Human society doesn't even keep to the basic concepts of the original theory. I think the reason to perpetuate it is pretty obvious even if not easy to accept.

Narcissistic behavior in social situations is typically false. It has a goal in mind. In this event, Trump, pushed his way through a crowd because of sense of false security, and a feeling of false acceptance. And as you see in this thread, many, evidently including you, thought it was endearing. They are good actors, aren't they?


Or he pushed his way through to get to his spot for a photo, which did not offend the Montenegrin leader in the slightest according to the leader himself. The puritanical outrage against such a minuscule action, one of exactly zero consequence, proves a narcissism of a different sort. Moral outrage is self-serving in nature. It signals affiliation, and is a property of the worst groupthink.


Your absolutly right. The leader of Montenegro could have cared less. During and after the photo, the crowd continues to gather around The POTUS. Like him or not, his magnetic personality attract many and repels others. And I'm OK with that.
youtu.be...

Stronger in what way? Are you suggesting alpha/betas no longer exist because we do not physically fight for the Alpha role? Also, there are millions of packs so to speak, not just one. In this case with the UN pack Trump assumed the Alpha role and no one else there stood up to him in defiance, so he won, and that will affect future engagements with Trump leading them.

These struggles happen at work, at home, with friends, everywhere .... all the time....

Hillary pulled an Alpha on The Burn, and the old socialist laid down and bared his throat to her while knowing that she and the DNC screwed him over... happens all the time...

This was at the NATO meetings. I first saw it on Reddit, where the air was filled with angst and politically correct self loathing. Myself, I beamed with pride for one simple reason: swagger. Did Donald Trump need to shove the PM of Montenegro out of his way? Probably not. Should Donald Trump make it a habit to shove the leaders of other nations out of his way? Not real sure the answer to that, I reckon it depends on circumstances. Is there any reason Trump, as the representative of the most powerful nation on the planet, should show any deference to the representative of Montenegro? Nope, no real reason at all outside of superficial platitudes and political theater.

This gif summarizes what made America great up until politicians like Jimmy Carter and Hollywood made a show over whitewashing the strength of the United States when in the presence of lesser nations' leadership.

.... And this sums up the mentality of just about everyone who voted for Trump:

"EFF everything if it's not America. We are the best and everyone should be bowing down to us and paying tithes to keep us from bombing them into oblivion."

Good job but, you are indeed what is wrong with this country. Not right.

As the "Leaders of the Free World" we need to be leading by example, not by treating everyone like they are less than us. We are all in this together, and by that I mean life. We should be showing each other mutual respect regardless of size, or power. When we start acting like what you've posted above we start to look like a tyrannical monarchy. What has happened the past to tyrannical monarchies? They have been hunted down, pulled from their beds when they were asleep and subjected to a very public and often times brutal execution.

That is the original theory.

The US would be one pack. All the Americans that you claim are alphas trying to explain Trumps alpha actions doesn't fit the theory.

The left-wing beta males are used to a passive and weak, Obama. President Trump is an assertive alpha male.

President Trump was just being assertive. He actually patted the Prime Minister on the back. This is exactly how the President of the United States should be. Trump is the leader of the free world and the liberals just can’t handle it.

I pointed out the hug on page 2, that doesn't change the fact that people saw a shove and cheered for it.

Both sides are turning this into something it was not and running with it.

How come we are only one of the few people who ever noticed the hug? And we're both "leftists".

Someone over at the gateway pundit noticed.

I'm guessing leftist is in quote marks because that is the label slapped on us, not because it actually fits.

We know why, they want to see their alpha male dominate because they feel it means they are also dominating.

Triggering...

Like Fiscal Conservatism, Personal Responsibility, Morality, National Security, Constitutional Principles, Ethical Conduct et al.

I find the notion of "triggering" promoted by the same people who freaked out for 8 years because the President had brown skin as a kind of ridiculous combination of ideological projection and irony..

It very plainly seems that every principle the right wing secretly hates themselves for betraying, they accuse the left of being guilty of.

I have to wonder if you'd have noticed the same had this gif been posted as an attack against Trump being (OMG, Jesus please help us, here her comes, oh Jehovah save us) brutish. I appreciate your observation here, however. You've demonstrated clearly that, for some, it is more important to squelch the idea of righteous national populism than it is to take a clear swipe at the populist figurehead you love to hate. It sort of proves a theory of mine... very few liberal Americans truly "hate" Donald Trump. They very much, however, hate the people Trump united, the "basket of Deplorables" as the world's densest woman called us. They hate what we represent because it represents a threat to the global unity project as well as a direct threat to the efficacy of the Kept Voter pool. Most of all they hate us (and what Trump represents rather than so much Trump, himself) because we stand as the resistance to forced opinion modification and are a major hole in the court of public opinion... we think for ourselves rather than basing our level of offendedness on what Hollywood, the media, or our neighborhood special interest groups are howling over and that equals a lack of thought control which is simply unacceptable in the Orwellian establishment's game plan.

More to the point..

An Alpha male in a pack is dethroned and exiled the moment he shows instability, insecurity, irrational behavior.

Trump's massive insecurity and thin skin would never qualify as Alpha in any wolf pack...they would exile that crazy in a millisecond.

I don't hate Trump. I think he's pretty funny. And I have stated many times in the past that I am giving him a chance.
BTW have you come to terms that it was a "bro-hug", not a shove?

There is nothing "Nationalist" about Trump.

He is a gravitational center of self-interested people...Putin included in that club.

It's more like "Trumpism"..propose policy that is good for Donald J. Trump...eff everyone else and the constitution to boot.

If anything he proposed or promoted would actually benefit America or actually "put America First"...then reasonable minds of both parties would work to implement his agenda.

As it stands...both the GOP and Dems in Congress and the general population at large continually examine Trumps proposals and ask WTF?

His themes seem to be advantaging the wealthy at the expense of everyone else and stripping oversight wherever possible to afford more corruption in politics....when he isn't attempting to obstruct justice regarding an investigation into his campaign colluding with Russia.

Actually from what I understand Trump was quite the athlete in school. He unfortunately suffered from none spurs once the draft came knocking.
