Anyhoo, it's been a helluva weekend already, and still the debate to go!! This hobby/addiction of mine has been a lot of fun, and made me pretty unflappable politically. But it has also made me awful at political prognostication.
When the audio tape of Trump boasting how he can get away with sexually assaulting women came out, I didn't even bat an eye - Trump was still not Hillary, so who was going to care? I was already writing the Freeper spin in my head - something about how all men want to do that and now God has elevated Trump.
Well, the GOP has suddenly decided Trump is toxic. This is what did it. Not the birtherism, not the condoning white supremacists, not the nativist demonizing of legal immigrants, Muslims and Mexicans, not the implicit endorsement of political violence, not the overt sexism, not his clear contempt for the GOP itself. I just don't get electoral politics.
At first Freepers were dismissive, then swarming. I liked their first tactic of fully strawmanning that the problem wasn't that he boasted about assaulting women but the language he used to do it. It was unexpected, and seemed a sufficient tonic for the troops to just move on. Indeed, it seems the substantive spin Freepers are going with. But we have moved waaaay beyond substance.
As the GOP has abandoned Trump, Freepers have moved into apocalyptic mode. Vanities aplenty; Frenzied prayers, impotent threats at the GOPe, Civil War 2 have all come to the forefront. On another thread they're already planning the impeachment of Hillary, as close to a surrender as I've ever seen on Freep. But the main thing I'm seeing is retreating to a substanceless crouch of 'Hillary is bad! Hillary is bad! We gotta win, because Hillary is bad!'
It's as plaintive as it is empty. This might be the worst I've ever seen them. Delicious!
Ann Archy is sufficiently out of touch, she thinks some fun with labels will solve the whole thing:
All anyone has to say is ...”He was a Democrat back then.”Sacajaweau doesn't care - Hillary said some Trump supporters were deplorable!
I feel so......deplorable. And as a deplorable, I will cast my vote for Trump.I guess this deplorable thing has crystallized the renegade anti-PC brand Freepers get off on, so it'll be around for a while.
clearcarbon blames the media for everyone caring about what Trump did so long ago. What about what Hillary did long ago?!!
It's breathtaking the way the LMSM has suckered the public with their latest sensationalism. They want to discipline Trump for something he said as a democrat eleven years ago, and yet their perfectly willing to put a known felon back in the White House regardless of her actions against the people for over two decades.exit82 drinks deep of the uniparty conspiracy:
Apparently promises have been made and pieces of silver exchanged.Unable to tell mountains from molehills, C210N is spinning this as a coverup of some kinda lame Hillary stories:
We are watching in real time the GOP-E trying to sabotage the candidate picked, not by the elites, but by the people.
This is the Et Tu, Brute? moment for the GOP.
They mean to decapitate Trump politically, with one month to go before the most critical election of our lifetime.
A million Americans descending on DC may be needed to fix this treachery.
the left learned that the meme works better if it is Blitzkrieg-ed from politicians, leftists, press, regime, and even some so-called “repubs”.factoryrat calls Hillary a revolutionary:
This is all to offset the recent bad polls, and recent email releases (Podesta, excerpts of wall street speeches, etc).
The left has begun their revolution in the US.Electric Graffiti is inspired to add a bunch of anti-Obama racism to his GOP hate:
If Trump wins, we have a chance at beating them back.
If hitlery wins, the neostalinists have won, and the US is toast.
The stakes are too high for us to lose this.
It seems these rino muslim mandingo fluffers just won't be satiated until the bones on America's carcass are picked clean.A month before the election, mad_as_he$$ is already hating the American voter:
These are the weak minded individuals, easily swayed, naive. If you are sitting here, 29 dayz out from the election saying to yourself, “I just really am undecided at this point”, you are a complete igmo.MichaelCorleone will hate the FOX until they yell about abortion 24-7.
You just described a large piece of the US population.
Now she and the entire Democratic party are just hypocritical, two faced manipulative liars and practice the worst brand of misogyny - they glorify and condone the sexual predator in their midst while vilifying and excoriating others.Right-wing Librarian doesn't just want to hate an entire party - he's gotta pick a villain!
Don’t forget big media (including FOX).
Their hypocrisy must also be pointed out. None of these bimbo talking heads have a problem with butchering babies and selling their body parts to the highest bidder, yet have a meltdown when mere words are spoken.
sackless RyanBlessedBeGod sees Trump is into the toxic masculinity tantrum as well:
He plays for the other team.
CAluvdubya is heartened by seeing schoolyard taunts on the Internet:
Drudge is awesome!Right-wing Librarian - the GOP is evil, jersey:
Really, all that needs to be said is that Trump has since accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.
The GOP is so stupid. If Trump is out, so are his supporters.UMCRevMom@aol.com has been copypasting this on all the threads. I've excerpted the part I liked the best:
They are not stupid, they are evil, jersey.
They don’t care if Trump supporters leave “their” party.
They don’t need us because they get the gravy train whether they win or lose.
What they want and need is for the status quo to continue, for the Insiders, the Establishment to continue on as usual.
This is the treasonous evil we face.
connecting MORE RINO dots! The Bush family OWNS Cruz, McCain & Paul Ryan! THE CRITICAL TIMING OF THIS BETRAYAL VIDEO RELEASE IS AMAZING!More naked fear about the debates I have not seen.
However, these comments made by Trump eleven years ago in NO WAY rise to the level of Hillary’s criminality and abuse of political position:
1- her cheating during the LAST debate;
2- attempting to STACK the townhall questions in tomorrow’s debate;
3- illegally taking campaign money from foreign nations for her presidential candidacy [snip]
Jim Noble coyly implies political violence is now on the table:
The US is now toast.Bibman doesn't know what coy means:
The Left rules from a position of weakness. They rule with words, over a people who (so far) have consented to a regime of words.
HRC's election, should that occur, will end an era, and start a new one.
With new rules.
Lock and Load!!!
