It's childish alright, having only noticed this division being so heavily perpetuated under Trump it is easy to think he is the cause, though it's far more likely this rhetoric has been building for some time and he is just the catalyst.

We certainly do live in interesting times.

Agreed, this didn't happen over night, It's been a slow train coming and both party's are responsible for where we're at today.

True, yes.

It doesn't help that Trump is such a troll though. And encourages his followers in gleeful troll-like behaviour. It's very un-presidential.

Heaven help us if the Dems find a troll to run against him next time up.

Just because people are triggered by everything Trump says does not automatically make him a troll. Mature adults can control their responses to what they consider negative stimuli, children can't always control theirs.

Many libs/Dems are behaving like children.

Many are children, and some of those who should be adults, well, they never had to grow up and live in the real world.

In any case, I agree.

Another thing they also didn't stand for factories coming back to the USA.

I mention that specifically because in the Kennedy rebuttal speech, which took place in some kind of garage, he talked about among other things bringing factories and jobs back and supporting the war on opioids and more as if Trump didn't support those things. It was very bizarre.

To say Trump has had no effect on unemployment is wrong. He may not be responsible for it in its entirety at this time but he did have a positive effect on it and should be able to acknowledge that.



Why would anyone stand and applaud someone who is knowingly lying to their face?


Liberals did that for 8 years with obama and didn't seem to mind.



It's pretty low to use the future of peoples lives as a bargaining chip, regardless of whether they are here legally or not.


Liberals have been politicizing immigration to their own ends for decades. And you are right, its pretty low.

Of course there is no consistency in the events you mentioned. One was a man who escaped a communist country and received political amnesty. The other is someone who snuck across the border in the middle of the night even though there were legal ways of applying for citizenship. They should not be treated the same because they are not the same.

The funniest thing about lefties is the fake outrage against things they regularly support.

Now they're angry more blacks and Latinos have jobs despite campaigning that more blacks and Latinos need jobs, for years.

As just one nutty example.

From a liberal website this morning...


Who are we to argue against the left's claim on this topic?


Nancy chewing a tide pod?

She says the statue of liberty is crying after the president's SOTU.

When did the statue become a democrat?

A real patriot would heavily criticize America. Why? Because we were on our way to greatness, but we have steadily diverged from that beginning around Ronald Reagan. To make America great again we have to first achieve greatness. Look at nearly any metric and America is ranked far down that list relative to other developed (and sometimes undeveloped) nations. Well, but for negative metrics such as number of people incarcerated etc. That's nothing to be proud of. That's something to demand better, however. Not words, but actions. And those that benefit the masses rather than the few.

Actually, the true face of Liberal thinking today, comes from standing up for the rights of immigrants who have been here longer than many of our members have been alive, to remain in the USA with their families, despite having paid into the system for decades straight, raised kids who are in the military, and so on and so forth. The true face of liberal thinking today, opposes Jeff Sessions in his constant doing down of marijuana businesses, the continued refusal of the federal government to permit money from weed sales to be processed through Americas banking system. The true face of Liberal thinking is the people who organise soup kitchens and feed the homeless, despite being under threat of arrest if they do.

And by the way, any American calling themselves a liberal, who fights for border security at the expense of the liberty of people living and working in the US is a fraud. Any liberal who has more respect for the flag, than they do for what it is supposed to mean, any liberal who thinks that opioid abuse can be solved by a "war on drugs" mentality, any liberal who believes that unemployment amongst minorities is the fault of minorities, any liberal who thinks that applying measures to immigration which promote majority white intake is acceptable, any liberal who believes that Israel is anything other than a bad actor (regardless of how positive our thoughts are toward the people living there), any liberal who believes that 2.4 million jobs have actually been created, or that the pay they generate is fair and offers those who are in those jobs an actual life, and any liberal minded person who brings their faith into their politics, IS NOT A DAMNED LIBERAL!

And another thing, that list of nonsense you generated there for our amusement, is a list of things that the Republican Party have been paying into getting wrong for GENERATIONS! Modern terrorism (that is terrorist groups created since 1950) have in the great majority, been created with the express permission and assistance of the US government, for the purpose of deliberately destabilising territories controlled by groups which do not subscribe to the corporatist ideals that America has been running on for decades, or even worse, have been created to destabilise nations to make it easier to reap their resources, by occupying the nation on peacekeeping and humanitarian grounds, only to plunder said nation under said guise! The best way to fix the immigration problem therefore, is to stop funding terrorism, stop funding narcotics cartels, and by so doing reduce the push factors driving people out of their home nations, and into the US.

Your flag and your anthem are not under threat, but the idea that your nation ought to match with the ideals under which that flag was sewn, or live up to the promise and courage enshrined in its national anthem, are. The thing threatening those aspects, is not the people protesting during the anthem at football games, its the sort of people who think that protest of that sort is an insult to the country who pose the greatest threat to the flag, to the anthem, because they are not courageous people, they are instead pathetic, mewling, backward oafs, whose imagination and intelligence are not expansive enough to allow them to understand the patriotism inherent in those protests.

The opioid crisis is caused by doctors over reliance on opioids as much as anything else, as well as the fact that your idiot country has an inhuman obsession with medicine as a business (which it is not, assuming people are doing medicine for the right reasons). Medicine is not a business, it is a calling. Many people in your country cannot afford to get surgeries they need to correct the damage done to them, by living hard lives, at the thin end of the financial wedge, and having to damage their bodies in order to earn enough to feed their children. The same system which forces them to do this, the corporatist methodology which has all of you by the balls these days, is the same system which means people have to place themselves in outstanding levels of debt in order to get medical treatment, or simply pay flat fees for medicines which are only appropriate as stop gap solutions, to problems only properly solved by actual treatment. You would know this, if your eyes were not glued shut, and your ears deliberately clogged so that the truth is neither seen nor heard.

The list of nonsense continues. You do not care about secure borders. You care about borders that no victim of your countries obscene megalomania, can enter in order to make themselves a life somewhere that your tyrant nation is least likely to blow up with billion dollar aircraft, launching million dollar missiles. Again, these are things which should not need explaining, and which you should, assuming you have any integrity at all, accept and accept responsibility for. If you want a nation with fewer immigrants, ban your country from making life impossible for people from other places on the planet.

That outrage IS their platform, it's all they have.

The liberal movement is the movement of "Not", "Can't", "Won't", "Deserve" and apathy. Their whole platform is the movement of "Feel sorry for ME!" And, if you don't feel sorry for ME...then I HATE you (and I will hate you with every fiber of my being until I die)! The only way the liberal left can get elected is to pander to this mentality, and as a result they just get more and more of it. It's endless.

It's all they've got anymore!

It's the new FSFM Party.

Really? Did ATS need another 'HURRRR LIBRUHLS ARE STOOPID!' thread?

Enjoy your star harvesting I guess. But seriously, this childish stuff is pretty embarrassing. You also clearly know absolutely nothing about liberalism.


Very true. Because classical liberalism is dead.

Well if you listened, he and his family fled NK to China and other places. And I believe he lives in SK now, running a charity for people in the north.

But sure, be a partisan hack.
