I do not believe that I am a racist, sexist, homophobic, or any other negative label that has been affixed to Trump supports. Rather, I feel that political correctness has run amok in this country, and we now live in a society where every blogger and Twitter user is searching for the slightest offense so they can try to ruin another human (famous, or not). The average person is afraid of expressing any controversial opinion in a public forum for fear of being "exposed," made viral, and ruined, personally and/or professionally. It is heartening to see someone as confident and impervious to criticism as Trump standing up to this ever-present mob…and winning! People tend to support the underdog. Most media outlets have attacked Trump with so much vitriol that they have turned him into a sympathetic figure.

Or, as Kanye says,

"Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed,...You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

Up until now, the Democrat Plantation Owners could ignore the occasional conservative African-American declaring that he/she would no longer be their sharecropper. After all, they were mostly intellectual nobodies. But Kanye..Kanye they can not ignore. Kanye terrifies them.

Maybe one day, the only way anyone will have street cred will be by saying things that used to be proof that they were evil or stupid, or both.

In Weimar Germany you were considered evil or stupid or both if you didnt agree with removing Jews from schools, universities, and various societal power positions.

Atheists and philosophers have been trying to convince us for years that truth is subjective and evil doesn’t exist. Suddenly, when their objectives are threatened, they want to bring back the idea of evil? The fact is that goals and objectives differ between ideologies. Where progressives wish to make America less in an attempt to make other cultures more, We conservatives wish to retain American greatness to ISPIRE other cultures to reach for more! You don’t advance civilization by breaking down the ones which stand out. You advance it by bringing those who lag UP to meet the standards set by more advanced cultures and civilizations! Unfortunately, progressives see the world as a zero-sum game, where there is only so much prosperity to go around. To bring up backwards peoples, they try to bring down advanced peoples. It’s not right and it’s not good. Fuck those progressives because their philosophy is poisonous and flawed and they deserve to fucking lose.

You can try to turn it around. But on some level, you know the direction we're going.

Getting a little defensive ?

Wtf ? If I try to comprehend where you get this, I'll assume it's from honest people that observe that our stagnation of real wages has coincided with a lot of increases in standards of living in some of the poorest parts of the world. GLobal poverty has taken a giant down tick in the past few daces, while AMeican worked have gotten screwed over somewhat. Why are progressives to blame ?

America has been fighting against capitalism and for global capitalism since forever. IT's true that our global leadership hasn't been about setting an example as nationalists, but I don't see how you blame progressives for that. Sure, progressives aren't super pro nationalism. But nobody should be. It won't work.

I reiterate that I am no fan of DJT, but one of the few good things his election may do is to reverse the blatant discrimination of so-called Fucking White Males (and Asian Males who also get hit by the shrapnel of FWM discrimination). I did not like the direction the country was going before, where if you are a white male, you are responsible for all evils of the world, should not be hired even if you are more qualified, and while stereotyping of minorities is not good, FWM's should be stereotyped as much as possible even if the stereotype is not statistically valid.

Yes america does know, which is why trump won. Lots of folk are tired of screeching, hypocritical SJWs and their nonsensical ideas and knew that hillary would have just maintained the status quo of the obama years. If your idea of MAGA is to have 35 genders, yearly increases in poverty and homelessness, the lowering of purchasing power and financial freedom due to near 0 interest rates on savings, high costs of housing, education, and health care, then you need to get a SJW in the oval office ASAP.

I say we don't, have, to live like a Democrat.
Somewhere somehow somebody must have abused their power some.
Who know why they would take away your jobs and say you don't count in the job reports.
Well listen Trump had a perfect retort. Just four words that made the left's head spin.
He came out and said Make America great again.
I say you don't have, to live like a Democrat.
Don't have to live like a Democrat.

Maybe one day, the only way anyone will have street cred will be by challenging their peoples to stop and think for themselves and not blindly follow the pack. To stop and think about the true effects of long term welfare and/ or other govt handouts on their communities. The effects of govt subsidizing and rewarding generational single parent families.

5. "‘I Just Want to Watch the Chaos...’––“I'm a young guy who is immature, a bit antisocial, and with no plans for kids or a wife ever. At some level, I don’t really care how things go with America as long as it’s fun to watch.”

Sounds more like a Bernie supporter to me.

Yep when what you need is a basic job to feed your family and some self worth you show your erect middle finger the leftist delusions like white guilt or 35 genders. More MAGA to come everywhere.

As Michael Moore famously said in October 2016,

“On 8 November, the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth and put a big fucking X in the box next to the name of the man who has threatened to upend and overturn the very system that ruined their lives. Donald J. Trump.

“Trump’s election is going to be the biggest fuck you! In human history. It will feel good.”

And THAT is pretty much the only thing from Moore that was grounded in any common sense, let alone semi-brilliance.

Moore fucked up, badly. He spoke the truth as he saw it, instead of catering to the Leftist view. The very thing that made him an effective documentary filmmaker, his ability to take the temperature of mainstream America, is what informed his opinion on the election. He’s been in the doldrums ever since this comment. Many Leftists are unwilling to forgive him for the Cassandra-like role he played in predicting Trump’s election.

Yeah, it's tough when someone tells you that you are wrong and then you find out that you really were wrong. It's much more comforting for everyone to be wrong together.

Wonder what Mueller know today? Republicans don't have a clue.
How about States Attorneys General?
It's hard to not be excited when one knows a surprise in about to be opened.
