So...you want to talk about "the truth" yet all you do is post the rants from a left-wing moron who can't differentiate his nose from his back end?

Tell me, do you become blind to the truth when you make up crap and claim in threads that "Obama didn't close coal mines/production," or other similar lies that pass as threads in your case?

What's going to be next, you are going to post threads about "left-wing Yale psychiatrists calling anyone who dares to agree on anything with POTUS Trump is mentally unstable," and as such should be put in mental institutions like your friends the socialist nazis did to political opponents?...

Patriotism, nationalism, and the bodies natural defense mechanism of being weary of large groups of out of date people.

That's takes high level thinking

I have yet to see a group of Trump supporters acting like antifa, wearing pussy hats, throwing fits and acting like liberals crying over trees.
I would call it a devotion to hate that the left embraces.

socialist nazis



LMAO. You talk to me about "making crap up" and then you call the nazi's socialist? Do you know what that's called? Historical revisionism.

How about, you don't tell me to leave my own country because I have a different opinion. Do you know who made people they don't like leave their own country? Your friends the Nazis and Pinochet.


What's going to be next, you are going to post threads about

No, what's next is showing how the right has culturally appropriated terms from the transgender community. You right wingers really ought to take the red pill already, maybe then your toxic masculinity will be obliterated and replaced with calmness, girlyness, cuteness, and empathy. It will even make your skin softer. God I'm getting jealous already!

P.S. I do enjoy this conversation, it's hilarious. I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas.

5 year olds are often wiser than people that have been in school and trained into this retarded way of life.

I'll take his insult as a compliment thank you very much.

Bandy X. Lee: The sense of grandiose omnipotence that he displays seems especially appealing to his emotionally-needy followers. No matter what the world says, he fights back against criticism, continues to lie in the face of truth, and above all is still president. What matters is that he is winning, not whether he is honest or law-abiding. This may seem puzzling to the rest of us, but when you are overcome with feelings of powerlessness, this type of cartoonish, exaggerated force is often more important than true ability. This is the more primitive morality, as we call it, of “might makes right,” which in normal development you grow out of by age five.


Really sounds like Obama or Bill Clinton being described here. And all this subjective wording...."truth", "honest and law-abiding".....and then turns around and calls it a "primitive morality". Oh and the phrase "the rest of us" is an idea that should have been tossed out by age 5, Miss "X"

This woman already made similar statements right after the election. IN fact her comments caused the American Psychiatric Association to put out a statement calling for an end to “armchair” psychiatry, saying doctors evaluating public figures they have not personally examined violates the “Goldwater Rule,” an ethical principle that “guides physician members of the APA to refrain from publicly issuing professional medical opinions about individuals that they have not personally evaluated in a professional setting or context.”

And yet here we are shes doing it again at that point id have to say her opinion is useless.

I think that Trump supporters do feel powerless and this explains much of their behavior. I can also see how it could apply to a lesser extent to Obama supporters. I am not going to belittle this feeling of powerlessness. I have felt it too. But I ask that we do the right thing about it because Trump isn't it. I am trying to figure it out myself. Some additional thoughts:


Rooting Out Democracy

One of neoliberalism’s promises was that it would free us from bureaucracy. By rolling back the state, it would vanquish the stifling power of officialdom, granting us unprecedented freedom and opportunity. This promise runs through the works of Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman, and Ludwig von Mises’s book Bureaucracy.

But in place of the old bureaucracy, it has created a state-corporate system more oppressive and intrusive than anything governments produced in the social democratic era. The hybrid nature of this system, protected from challenge by commercial confidentiality, property rights and civil law, places it beyond the reach of democracy.

The intermingling of state and corporate power allows corporations to harness the resources and protection of the state, and the state to hide behind its corporate partners.


(continued...)

How Do We Get Out of This Mess?

Is it reasonable to hope for a better world? Study the cruelty and indifference of governments, the disarray of opposition parties, the apparently inexorable slide towards climate breakdown, the renewed threat of nuclear war, and the answer appears to be no. Our problems look intractable, our leaders dangerous, while voters are cowed and baffled. Despair looks like the only rational response.

(the author, a leftist, has defended Trump on NAFTA and similar free trade agreements because they are undemocratic and another kind of neoliberalism).



EDIT: I wished everyone "Merry Christmas" in my last post in this thread, but I can't edit it anymore. What I meant to say was "Happy Holidays". I apologize from the bottom of my heart if I offended anyone.

I don't know. I wasn't the one marching on Washington with a pink hate shaped like my genitalia after Obama's elections to rage against the results of a vote. I was headed to work like I am every day.

Not sure how that action of going to work like I always do projects powerless quite like raging in the streets wearing a ridiculous hat like a child having a tantrum.

I went to a rally once or twice to meet others like me where we organized ourselves and took back the GOP at the local and state levels, but we got off the street once we'd connected and organized and put our energy into elections. There is some evidence that perhaps the left is maybe doing this. After all, you have Ocasio-Cortez, and she's an absolute gem.

Yep.

I remember hearing about Jimmy Doolittle & the boys reacting like 5 year olds and bombing Japan.

Most 5 year olds can spot dirty uncle mueller the minute he walks in the room too.

Thankfully Hillary couldnt fool enuff of the 5 year olds. 5 is a good age.

Why OP hates the little 5 year olds....?

No, the revisionism is the claim that the nazis were right-wing... The nazis didn't appropiate any terms, they were/many still are socialists.

The nazis were environmental extremists, they even banned hunting, and used the "animal rights" excuse to claim the Jewish people were savages because of their food preparation rituals in which of course they had to kill animals... Since when is "environmental extremism right-wing"?...

The nazis implemented gun registration, which you all in the left love, and confiscated firearms of people they "claimed were dangerous." Since when is gun registration, and gun confiscation "right-wing"?...

The nazis and Hitler nationalized all trusts. They nationalized and implemented "agrarian reform." They communalized large stores. They implemented "profit sharing" (wealth redistribution) in large industries. They abolished all unearned income that did not arise from work. Since when is ANY of this "rightwing"?...

Like the left is doing today, the nazis implemented a policy that would shut down newspapers that dared "transgress against the common welfare." Today the left calls it "fake news" and combating right-wing extremism by suppressing anyone who dares not be "left-wing."

The nazis believed in the common good before individual good, which again is a socialist belief...

You just don't have a different opinion. People like you are slowly destroying this nation and transforming it into a socialist hellhole like many other countries. I have lived the hellhole of socialism you love so much, and like me there are millions of people in the U.S. who escaped socialism and communism. There are countries that are already socialist, instead of demanding this country become another hellhole, go to India to see and experience how well you can live as a regular citizen instead of demanding and wanting socialism in the U.S.

What in the world?... What "terms" have been appropiated by the right?...

You don't want that to happen, and neither do I. What you want is to depose a duly elected POTUS. The people will rise if your attempted left-wing coup succeeds, and it won't be pretty if your globalist masters succeed.

For the record: we're in the second decade of our nice and stupid war on terror, close to the first century of an even more stupid war on drugs and in the first decade after the final takeover of "too big to fail".

And here we are, with the woke sheeple that still didn't see a coup happening in broad daylight, clinging to the beloved AR-15's in their edgy anticipation of a final standoff that never was going to happen in the first place.

Congrats, I guess. Cookie?
