Re: President Trump

DoOrDoNot, if you're still reading, this would be a great spot to jump in and really improve the thread discourse by telling your buddy here what a ****ing idiot he's being

I'm all ears for his reaction.
Plus, how does he determine the values of "trolling" to make ranks?

In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll's amusement.

Re: President Trump

There's definitely infighting in all factions of politics but the right wingers don't try and totally destroy your lives if you disagree (the extreme right wingers do if they have power though). I definitely think free speech is held more highly in right wing circles than left wing ones. But that's just my opinion from what I see.

I actually think the weight of response is totally dependent on the power your group holds. If you're on the defensive and retreating like the conservative right has been for 75 years, then you are less likely to oust someone for disagreeing. If you hold the power over most of the media, almost all the institutions of higher learning, and you have a very simple uniform ideology like the left currently does then you could technically totally obliterate someone if they disagree. Both sides of the political spectrum have done this in the latter situation.

That's not what 'troll' means. There are already 50 synonyms for that description.

Regardless, meeting you on your own terms, I don't do any of that save for the parts that are baked into any worthwhile politics discussion.

So you are trolling the forum with the dictionary. I'm practically grassroots linguists about that.

How can you give such short shrift to holocaust survivors? Yikes!

As for the question - let me know when they tear down Monticello. The Left already can't have Jefferson-Jackson breakfasts, I'm sure this is coming next.
LOL even with all the ****ing telegraphing of this **** both DoOrDoNot and Jiggy had to go forth to defend the morality of individual Confederates and Dixie's peculiar institutions. They could've just ****ing lied! They could've said "hell yeah take those statutes down, **** those traitors"!

So wrapping that back around to the Southern Strategy and the Democrats being the party of the KKK, you want to revise any of your previous comments?

David Brock and David Brooks are different people(Brock is a center-left political hack, Brooks a right wing columnist), and the left hates both of them! For ****'s sake. Don't you know ANYTHING?

I seriously think you forgot who brought Brooks up in this thread and why.

Objective reality. You invoked it, I responded. You are trying to troll with asserting objective reality. So objective reality appears.

The modern conservative movement has so few actual political beliefs that all of their attempts to talk about policy end up with them adopting semi-random libertarian or left-wing views. See the bizarre Snowden and drone stuff earlier in this thread.

But yes, DoOrDoNot, that's another ****ing thing the GOP has tried. The most notable example was called SB 1070 in Arizona, allowing cops to check people's immigration status on demand. It was a huge ****ing story for like a year. Other states have either passed their own versions or tried to.

For ****'s sake. Don't YOU know anything? If the education is going to be one way in these conversations you need to start talking with a little more deference.
