To tell you the truth I actually think it'll work out in our favor. I'll predict Trump will win this battle and bring the press to heel. It may take time, though.

I may be wrong, but I have a feeling there is a deep resentment by the majority of people of how the media is treating him and it'll be a real backlash in the midterms.

It's just a hunch. One side will win, and I predict it'll be Trump. The left right now needs to hit rock bottom to actually change, and I think that will happen. We will find out in 16 months. Good luck!

No **** you think that, but I wasn't asking for another one of wil's patented predictions that you'll immediately forget if you're wrong but talk about endlessly if you're right.

You think CNN loses their Senate seat or something? What the **** are you talking about? We know right wingers hate the media! They did that before Trump, that's why there's a special safe space media ecosystem for them to learn about Muslims in public, black crime, and how Obama is Kenyan.

You know exactly what I'm talking about. As much as I dislike you I am well aware you aren't stupid. Your side needs help here, and that means they need to have find a message within the next 16 months. You are wasting time with nonsense, and we are all aware the Russia thing is nonsense.

There are essentially 5 results that come come from the midterms, and only 1 of them is "good" for you. Big R win, small R win, Even, Small D win, Big D win.

Only the last is acceptable to your side, and a Big R win in essentially impossible. Small D win is meh, Even or Small R win is a death knell for the Democrats.

You guys better get your house in order. 16 months sounds like a long time away. It's not. Good luck, homie.

The media isn't doing their job. They are essentially sensationalists chasing ratings. That isn't good for anyone, and as I've said I suspect it won't be good for your side.

We shall see. I very well may be wrong.

Going forward, the easiest way to understand it all is to realize that ~everything they say is psychological projection of some manner and form.

Re: President Trump

Grunching and, uh, I'm not holding my breath on wil responding to Fly, but the lack of specificity, even when it's begged and pleaded for, is astounding.

There are a few topics I've been waiting (however, note again the above about breath-holding) over a year for specifics.

Please be as specific as you can.

Re: President Trump

"fake news" is nazi-like.

http://www.haaretz.com/us-news/1.772836

Quote:

Originally coined by the German author Reinhold Anton in 1914, the term Lügenpresse was used during World War I to refer to “enemy propaganda.” Some 30 years later Hitler and the Nazis appropriated the term to weaken opposition to the regime, primarily “accusing” Jewish, communist, and later the foreign press of disseminating fake news.
The phrase made a comeback in Germany in 2014, when the anti-immigrant PEGIDA movement accused the media of “not telling the truth” about crimes committed by refugees and immigrants, primarily those displaced by ISIS in Syria and Iraq. In January 2015, some 25,000 protesters attended a PEGIDA march in Dresden, chanting “Luegenpresse, halt die Fresse" (“shut up, lying press”).
"Luegenpresse" subsequently earned the notorious "Unwort des Jahres" (Non-Word of the Year) dishonor given out annually by a German linguists' panel of experts.

The most incredible was when wil was asked what positions/stances/beliefs did he hold in the present or past that would constitute him aptly labeling himself a "liberal" and the response was, "Derrr, uh, I like the freedom of the speech?"

I've referred to trumpism as small-N nazism, more simply just national socialism, and I'll be the first to admit I'm playing fast and loose, but only slightly. One of the obvious responses is that I'm disrespecting victims of the holocaust, to which I'd reply, touche, trumpism isn't responsible for a holocaust yet and surprisingly the Fakenews Fakery hasn't just invented a Fake report to convince you otherwise.

The failures of communism have been exemplified usually by Stalinism and sometimes Maoism and if we're being small-F fair and balanced the same should apply to national socialism, in that a holocaust of any form is not any sort of inherent tenet to the original Prussian-style nationalism and national-as-opposed-to-international socialism.

The point of this apparent non sequitur is twofold.

One, it's incredible and bordering on surreal how wil et deplorable al, and when I say "al" I mean allllll, like, tens of millions of mother****ers, seemingly don't even have a vague and cursory understanding of basic terms, like "left" or "liberal" or "right" or et cetera. There is no equivalent in any other topic of discussion about anything.

And two, wil et deplorable al voted for small-N national socialism, a simple fact both hilarious and disheartening. When I or somebody else dares to suggest that, hey, maybe sharing would be nice, and are met with something like, "Derrr, communism doesn't work and look at all the people Stalin and Mao killed," well, some small part of me hopes the Fat Hitler talk is appreciated on some small level.

Re: President Trump

Every time I kneejerk with a this-is-too-stupid-to-be-real I have to pinch myself and remember 62 million something Rhodes scholars and Mensa members pulled that lever.

The double standard is breathtaking. Everything from the left right now is an absolute joke. Hypocrisy at every turn.

How can you not see this? Has the whole world gone crazy? Has everyone on 2+2 become stupid all of a sudden?

Of COURSE it's made up! They are caught on tape admitting it's all total nonsense and you believe their "unnamed" sources are legit?

Lol

Re: President Trump

Wow wil got exposed tonight. Pretty pathetic that you can't answer simple direct questions asked of you. If you're going to have the opinions you do it's completely reasonable for folks to ask questions to better understand where you're coming from.

You're showing yourself as the true troll with every passing day.

Re: President Trump

You people call Will dumb and a troll and yet you all line up each day in an attempt to outsmart him and fail miserably...HMM!

The same thing occures with your hatred of Trump. You all do realize he is playing you right? Your like his little puppets. I kinda feel like your my little puppets but I don't post here much. This is one of the many benefits of being on the winning side.

Do you really think Trump will lose in 2020? No way! The world is turning conservative and it's about time. Keep on hating though.
