Ho no, this screaming fuckery is totally on the Republicans. They courted this monster and now its eating them alive. They've been feeding it hate, fear and stupidity for years. Now they're surprised when it turns out to be stupid and hateful and demands an idol in its own image.

General money grubbing corruption isn't unique to either side. But this particular abject frothing lunacy is unique to only one side.


LOL whatever you say...



http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/04/magazine/donald-trump-is-not-going-anywhere.html

But what was more compelling to me about both the speech and the spirit of the room was how nonideological it all was. Other than undocumented immigrants, who represent a go-to boogeyman for the right, Trump’s targets consisted of a bipartisan assembly of the ‘‘permanent political class’’ that Joan Didion described in her book ‘‘Political Fictions’’: that incestuous band of TV talkers, campaign strategists and candidates that had perpetuated the scripted awfulness of our politics.

Resentment of this class has built over several years. It has been expressed on both sides, by the rise of insurgent movements like the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street (Trump’s railing against fund-­raiser ‘‘blood money,’’ ‘‘bloodsucker’’ lobbyists and Wall Street ‘‘paper pushers’’ would play well across the board). As a reporter in Washington, I, too, have grown exceedingly weary of this world — the familiar faces, recycled tropes and politics as usual — and here was none other than Donald J. Trump, the billionaire blowhard whom I had resisted as a cartoonish demagogue, defiling it with resonance. He tacked not to the left or to the right, but against the ‘‘losers’’ and ‘‘scumbags’’ in the various chapters of the club: the pundits who ‘‘wear heavy glasses’’ and ‘‘sit around the table,’’ the ‘‘political hacks’’ selling out American interests overseas.

Glad America is getting to see what reprobates the Left consists of.


Violent thugs who cannot tolerate dissenting opinions, and will torch their cities and harass anyone who opposes their villainy.

I'm not entirely clear what you think that article proves. It doesn't have anything to do with the point I was making. Let alone the point you are trying to make. Unless you are just fundamentally misunderstanding this entire conversation and throwing stuff at the wall to see if anything sticks in an attempt to cope.

If you wish to trot out the dead horse of "Both Sides Are Bad(tm)" then please point to any other presidential candidate whose rallies consist of assaulting anyone who doesn't agree with them, assaulting the press, kicking out people who aren't white, acting like an actual child when confronted with opposing opinions or having a secret service agent literally guard a plate of raw steak. -.-

Well, don't feel badly:
After four students were shot by the National Guard at the Kent State campus in 1970, the general mood of the country was the event was "tragic" but that the protestors, quote, "should've seen it coming" for being so annoying--
(I mean, duh, the National Guard had rifles, what did they think was going to happen after they had been told to disperse?)

After all, the news said there were nationally ORGANIZED movements trying to disrupt college campuses with protests against the War and the president, and things would have only gotten out of hand if the protestors hadn't been dealt with and shown some force of authority to restore order! The Silent Majority had had enough with privileged teens disrupting others' rights to an education, just because they wanted to show off some gripes with their country!

(If that sounds like a 70's All in the Family rerun from the Nixon era, well, so does the whole blame-the-victim and out-to-get-us Trump strategies.)

What did I write that was so complex?

Both Republicrats and Demopublicans are responsible for the alienation of the masses leading up to both Tea Party and Occupy movements.

He's a douchebag that America doesn't deserve.

And like most bullies, easily cowed when people stand up to them.

Pretty much all of the candidates (sans perhaps Bernie) are D-bags that America doesn't deserve

Ah yes, if you mean "stand up" as in readying for a full-on riot and "cowed" as in not throwing oneself into the middle of said full-on riot then sure...........

You blamed both sides and cited only financial corruption. When clearly the topic of discussion was the violence, stupidity and xenophobia on display. No one said anything about the Tea Party or Occupy. We are clearly talking about the racism, fearmongering, etc going on. Which is only occurring on one side and is the end result of the GOP courting that woeful segment of the population for the last several years. Then being surprised when they voted in people like themselves and began tearing the party apart internally.

This is the Frankenstein's monster of the GOP. They created it. Now its turned on them and they don't know how to stop it.

As for the Tea Party vs Occupy. One these was astroturfing. I'll let you figure out which. -.-

.............and none of this would even be happening without the collective failure of the Republicrats and the Demopublicans

If people are feeling so darn empowered and included across the board then where would you think this sort of stuff would go?

"We're shutting down fascism using fascist tactics! Not hypocritical at all!"

This protest demonstrates exactly what is wrong with the masses in the US today. And they're STILL BLOCKING THE DAMN ROADS. Come ON, people.

If you don't like the gathering and that's as far as your reasoning to disrupt it goes, at least demonstrate peacefully. So what. Someone merely says something offensive. Boo hoo. If you lash out physically, it's still your fault because you began the physical altercation. It's not a law to be rude or to be a douche, but it is very illegal to incite violence for no other reason than that you didn't like what was being said.

were you talking about the protestors or the Trumpers?

Because it's been the Trumpers that have been causing shit, not the protestors. Or at least it's been like that until this anyway

In this case, I'm talking about the anti-Trump protesters. But anyone who does things like this, regardless of their political affiliation, gets the evil eye from me.

Oh, the things I would do if I became a judge.

One blogger pointed out how it IS the Right's own creation:
In their twenty-year search to "avenge" against Bill Clinton, by making sure no winning Democratic president ever succeeds at any achievement in his administration, they've created angrily hyperbolic rhetoric that the Democratic presidents "take over" once they've been elected. (Since they can't understand why the winning president would have such public support for his policies, and he must have "conned" them somehow, maybe with advertising or hypnosis.)
They create the image that Clinton, quote, "personally violated the Constitution for himself", and that Obama "wanted to sic his own brand of healthcare on us to turn the country Socialist", etc....Which only backfired and created the idea in the Right's mind that once elected, like those nasty Democrats for sixteen years, a president Gets To Do Whatever He Wants. And that all it takes to fix the country is to win an election, and then YOU Get to Do Whatever You Want.

Think it's safe to say, our Constitution doesn't work like that. But it's exactly what Trump's promising because he politically doesn't know any better, and it's attracting the equally dim/angry people who also think that's the way it works.
More experienced ex-senators and governors know they can't promise that, and that's why Trump's supporters say they "aren't hearing" the sheriff's-gonna-clean-up-this-town rhetoric from the other candidates, and rally themselves behind their own angry fantasy.
Which proves the value of paying attention in high school history/social class.
