Irrelevant.

(accusations of) TDS isn't about mental health stigma. It is about tipping cows. Real mental health stigmas exist and are rampant (mass shooters are "mentally ill" for example) and this ain't it chief.

well instead of saying people are suffering a mental condition anytime they criticise him or his policies , they could just say they are ignorant of facts
and then explain to them the reason why they are wrong and then cite policies to win their votes

instead of branding them with some mental illness and calling it a job done


just like how its easy for anyone to cry " conspiracy theorist" and be branded as nut job
the stigma that surrounds mental conditions , aww he cant be right he has a mental condition
therefore anything they say is moot


It's a term for people whom have lost their # after Trump won the 2016 election. It's happening, and there's literally thousands of videos of Antifa style attacks, screaming at the sky, freaking out in vape stores, assaults on MAGA gear wearers, "milkshaking", literally shaking, crying, pitching a fit on the streets etc etc etc. To deny it's been happening and spreading like some rampant disease would be extremely naive. (Although, I believe people were STARTING to lose it around 2012 as explained in the OP). "TDS" is a term to describe it. It's as good as any other name for it, but alas, you don't care anyway, so, you thought you'd just start ranting about it playing all high and mighty. Nope, no dog in this fight, just sitting back complaining about it from some other place in the world.

Once upon a time you would have been right.

Today it's used to label and dismiss any criticism, regardless of its veracity, and to stifle conversation.

Like I said earlier, even if you're a fiscal conservative taking issue with the trillion dollar annual deficit you'll be met and dismissed with claims of "derangement" ("TDS").

Nah, I don't think so. Maybe you ran into an uptight stray, but conservatives in general have never been happy with the deficit. Most have given up aside from understanding a reset is inevitable and needed. After Ron Paul pointed it out, no-one even talks about auditing the FED or ending the IRS etc anymore. Libertarians have been saying it for years. Ron Paul understood and even said to prepare for it (a collapse) and the sooner it happens the better it will be in order to rebuild.

Be upset about it, you should be.With that said, socialism/communism/censorship/getting offended and 271 new genders isn't the answer. It's either we buck up to this fact or just let the Bernie bois and the AOC family take over, because we really don't have any other options.

Then there are hordes of what you call "uptight strays".

 


...ahhh, Ron, the last candidate who was actually worth voting for instead of trying to choose who to vote against (given these two corrupt parties that have a stranglehold on our electoral system). I wish his apple would have fallen closer to the tree.

You got hordes of republicans mad at you for being concerned over the deficit? That's really weird to me. Well, I guess vote Bernie! I dunno man lol.

What's your obsession with Bernie? If you like him so much, then go ahead an vote for him yourself.

I haven't seen what you are referring to but you seem pretty peeved off at Trump supporters, so maybe it's your whole approach. And sorry about Sanders, it looks like Biden's shaping up to be your new choice.

I have. It seems to have taken the place of calling someone butt-hurt and having to take the time to upload the salve meme:


I guess pounding out TDS for a drive-by post is just easier.

ETA A search on ATS for TDS gives 1,300 hits. Some members here are using it.

This right here, I live in a bigger city in central Illinois.. There is a push of Democratic free # here lately, you cannot almost afford to live here anymore... Many have and are leaving for a reason, do not hesitate to tell me why but the numbers speak for themselves. Not really sure where I stand on the virus, it hasn't hit home yet.. I take a weird kind of vit c to boost my immunity and in my opinion it gives me energy. Have a decent job but still struggling to make ends meet... now I see that 15 dollars an hour burger flippers are a thing and I can already see the increase in anything I can pay for... I've always been the type "If I don't have the cash I can't buy that", type of person....Will never vote Democrat again and they can all burn in he**, we are taking our country back and that's final.


Greetings from a former illinoisian. Are you suggesting illinois goes red in 2020? The democratic machine is powerful in illinois and literally produces votes in any way possible. Hopefully trump does win illinois, but id be very surprised. However, the political winds of change are picking up indeed.

My preferred solution to this whole mess would be to have a libertarian party powerful enough to elect presidents.

I'm guessing political bias allows you to easily overlook and dismiss it without much notice.

Riiiiiiiight, because a fiscal conservative reminiscing about how Ron Paul was the last candidate worth voting for is sure to love Bernie, or Biden. Given the fact that you lack the ability to pick up on such simple concepts openly posted in this very thread... it's no wonder that you overlook how "TDS" gets tossed about at the drop of a hat.

You need to look in a big mirror while you read that so you can see who that message is really about you just posted.

I looked, and it's still about Wookiep failing to see the overuse of "TDS", and him thinking that a fiscally conservative Ron Paul supporter would somehow be remotely interested in Bernie or Biden, but your response was an adorable attempt.

Well this RP supported has moved on to better ideas. I see now that he was an agent to open our mind to the Fed being a criminal enterprise and nothing more.

I'm not trying to overlook anything, I just don't see it everywhere like you do. I see people disagreeing about things, then getting all butt-hurt then memes are used like that funny one daskakik posted. Or like the guy on the last page who assumed he knew what I liked and didn't like based on the fact that I'm not too impressed by Trump's speeches usually, and don't like some foreign policy things. I don't know about anyone else, but when *I* use the term "TDS", it's to describe the folks in all the videos screaming at the sky and asking for 100 new genders, and accusing anyone not agreeing with them to the hilt of racism and all sorts of isms, and the screeching etc etc. I posted about that near the top of this page. THAT group of people are very real, and since there isn't any actual medical terms to describe it via medical professionals, I think TDS will suffice, for now.

You know I'm just giving you crap about Bernie etc. I'm just pointing out that some people are having this shift in attitude based on what other people say to them, or they don't like someone elses' opinion, or a speech was bad etc. I said in the OP that I likely wasn't explaining it very well, perhaps I just don't know how to word it.

In the end, I know you don't want Bernie or socialism, so that's why I keep saying, what are the choices we have here? It doesn't matter how a million Trump supporters make you feel, it still boils down to what direction you'd rather see the country go. It's never ever going to be perfect. People are going to disagree. But we all have a choice to make. Is this shift that I see occurring going to stifle the judgement of people choosing the direction of our nation? I'm seeing it happen and it's troubling.
