Its also accurate.

You cannot represent for the left, unless they are YOUR people, unless you exist in the social strata from which leftist thinking originates, which is and always will be, the working class, the low earners and the hard workers. That is where the thing originates, those are the people who are damaged by a lack of representation.


No it is in no way accurate.
Your pompous labeling of "genuine" poor is hilarious.
Being successful in no way prohibits one from political opinion.
As poor as you represent yourself to be you somehow were able to afford the worlds largest paintbrush.

A) it is all relative..

B) the left has the college professors and scientific community..


C) The non existent Russian boogie man is a neo-conservative invention. Made wide steam by regan and McCarthy..

The democrats have been bandwagon jumpers on that and all of these conservative postitions as well, but it is still the right wing position.

Citizens United is a conservative invention

Trickle down economics is a conservative invention..

The war on drugs is a conservative invention

The patriot act is a conservative invention.

Morality laws are a conservative policy..

Church in schools is a conservative position.

It’s ok for cops to shoot unarmed people is the conservative position.

Have some democrats jumped on board every one of those things???

ABSOLUTELY

but that doesn’t change the fact they are the conservative position... not the liberal one..

C) The democrat base never falls for pizzagate, , interdiminsional child rapists, Benghazi, Obama’s a Muslim, Shiria law is comming to America, exc..


———————————


Does the “left “ really do that?? Or do trolls go out and find random individuals who otherwise don’t matter and pretend they apply to everyone on the left???


How many cartoon liberals have you met in real life??? You know the conservative stereo type??

I’m not sure I have ever met 1....

There is this one chic that might count lol..

But now how many human beings have I met in my life??

A couple million? Maybe??

So literally 1 in a million people are this cartoon liberal , and this is supposed to be a imminent societal threat?!!


It is the same tired tactic the conservative side has argued since Rome... create a threat for your base to rally around , even if you have to invent it yourself..

Pizzagate

I’ve never seen a Hugh Hefner day, or party, or I don’t even know what you consider celebrating?!?!

And then “the left” like it’s an actual perso. Who can do things, lol...

Those are intangible things you can say about anything..

..

2) the democrats didn’t collude with the Russians...

Fusion gps isn’t the Russians lol..

Trump just said “I know you are but what am I!”

Thanks again for proving my point.

Paying a company to collude with Russia to get dirt on trump is a ok with you, and the fact that they lied about it for a year is also ok.

But if trumps team did that, its horrible.

Again, thank you for proving my point far better than I could have on my own.

He doesn't have to, he's already said the right has hypocrites as well.

Even though he doesn't go into detail at all on why that is but does with the left any chance he gets.

Shouldnt you be going thread to thread telling any pro trump or republican one that they are falling for the medias divisiveness by bringing up things, while at the same time parroting the medias divisiveness on any anti trump thread?

We've got loads of rich people who claim to be involved in left-wing politics here too.

We called New Labour Neo Conservative and we weren't half wrong. Tony Blair might have came from a more humble background but it certainly wasn't where he was going.

Tony Blair and New Labour sold out to Murdoch to win an election and have been selling their souls ever since.

Times are changing... But New Labour wasn't Old Labour and New Labour didn't represent "the left" too well.

I grew up with New Labour, they didn't fight for me or represent me, they were too busy lining their pockets.

How can millionaires represent the working class?

In the UK, the left is the working class, our communist and socialist history has it's roots in our working class. Not millionaires.

Shouldn't you be doing the opposite? The reason you find me partial is because I focus on who is in office instead of who isn't. Sorry that I talk about the most immediate threat first, he's in office right now and just so happens to have run as a Republican and has Republican supporters.

I actually gave you a S&F, I agree with the OP. It points out the hypocrisy quite nicely. It doesn't really address the rights hypocrisy though. Maybe you could start a thread on that as well?

The top 3 trump campaign members met with the Russians over stolen government documents..

The dnc picked up the contract of an established opp research group commonly used by both sides...


You have no point..

Yep sure. So again, its ok for Hillary and company to question the integrity of the election for over a year later.


I've been reading this thread trying to stay non-biased. And I'll admit, it's been pretty interesting comments so far. But, you lost me at this sentence. It's hard to listen to someone rant about double standards when making a comment like this.

Have you forgotten Mr. Trump claiming the election was rigged before it even happened? Or how about him actually investigating the election himself even though he won?

That, to me, seems like a double standard on that statement alone.

My thoughts exactly. It's like the people on the right are trying to convince themselves not to vote for Democrats even though they know their beloved Republican leaders are screwing them ruthlesly. It's really funny.

You haven't proved anything other than you are mindless Republican sycophant. A Republican could poop in your mouth and you still vote for him.

Perhaps you missed the point of the thread.

The left said that Trumps questioning the election integrity was damaging.

Yet they then did the same thing.

I was responding to a poster saying well it was different when hillary questions the integrity of the election in that post.

So yes, you are making my exact point.

Trump complained about the election and was decried as hurting democracy. yet when Hillary and democrats did it, it was ok.

And then when I respond to someone saying it was ok for hillary to do it, you ssay this somehow shows a double standard by me?

Great contribution!

Yep, we get it.

Trump getting dirt on Hillary from russians = bad and we need investigations.

Hillarys team paying a company to send a foreign spy to russia to get dirt on Trump from them = no problem.

Maybe you should check your own breath before accusing others of eating poop.

Oh no, I understand the point clearly.

I agree that him questioning the results are merely for his own ego at this point. He won, and like his supporters say, that's the end of the story. (who cares about popular vote, right?)

You stated that



7. It would be outrageous and hurt democracy if Trump doesn't accept the the outcome of the election. Yet its perfectly fine for the democrats to do that non stop ever since the election.


I haven't seen anyone on the left deny the outcome. Sure, they're not happy with it, but accept the results. Now, if you're pointing to the investigation into Russian meddling, it seems to me you're missing a point. Nobody is expecting the election results to be forfeited and give the win to Hillary. It's a matter of what they did, how they did it, and how to prevent it in the future. If in the course of the investigation, it's discovered that Trump's team aided, then that would be followed as well. In respect to a full investigation, it is their duty to pull every thread they find.

If the results are Hillary working with the Russians then so be it. Anyone who aided in the meddling should be called out and prosecuted. Anyone.

If you just got caught in a sideways slip due to the number of responses, I can respect that. But trying to spin it into, "no, I was right all along" is just unfair to yourself and everyone else.

Nope sorry, you are wrong.

I wasnt caught up in anything.

I said that people said that if Trump questioned the legitimacy of the election, it was horrible, and yet they have done the same thing.

Here is Hillary herself doing it, though many others have (as you no doubt know).


Hillary Clinton says she would not rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election if new information surfaces that the Russians interfered even more deeply than currently known. In an interview with Fresh Air's Terry Gross about her new memoir, What Happened, Clinton acknowledges that such a challenge would be unprecedented and that "I just don't think we have a mechanism" for it.

www.npr.org...

Trump was questioning rather illegals voted making it illegitimate. Hillary is saying if russians influenced, it may be.

The point is, either its ok for a candidate to question if there was illegalities in the election, or its not.
