Why are Trumpublicans so easily manipulated by propaganda?

By Aphroman following x   2018 Jun 15, 5:49am 1,464 views   95 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


These are the same people who bitched and complained about everything under the sun during Obama’s eight years. Every time Unemployment dropped, month after month, year after year, these same people would rush to say “yea, but!!” The labor force participation rate is still down!

Magically under Trump, they are now manipulated into repeating the propaganda.

That Unemployment is the Lowest Evah!

Unemployment for blacks is the lowest ever!

So my question is, are these people just not too bright, or are they just being disingenuous?

and evil "dark money" funds


No one knows what "evil dark money" funds spend They don't have to report spending until starting in mid september. Once reporting started being tracked 76% was conservative groups.

Hillary lost because she was terrible and Trump is one of the greatest hucksters in the last 100 years. Even as terrible as Hillary was she almost won. That goes to show the entire nominating process for both parties is broken beyond redemption. The odds of seeing a candidate who isn't part of the extreme fringe again are slim.

I have seen no reputable study that says that funding amount was even CLOSE between Trump and Clinton. At best, it was $2/$1.5 to Clinton for $1 trump. But, whatever.. if you really want to believe that $ is directly correlated to winning ....

As to "extreme" candidates - not sure if that included Clinton. I would not say she was the "extremist" in the party. Bernie wasn't nominated BECAUSE of the super delegate process put in place to prevent another fringe left wing candidate. The Republican party has no internal protection mechanism and hence we we see Trump succeed as a populist. It is ironic that the party able to nominate a "fringe" or populist candidate was the Republican party. The Democrat party will broker no such dissent - they do a good job of protecting themselves from in-fighting.

She was an extremely bad candidate that should have never been nominated. She belonged to the ultimate extreme, herself. The only interest she served was advancing herself. No reasonable candidate even considered trying to take on the bill backed self promotion machine she spent 16 years building. I would consider it a major failing of the democratic party nomination process. The were much better off with smoke filled back rooms. at this point

Increasing prosperity for ordinary working people is causing a lot of pain on the left. They really wanted ordinary people to suffer under Trump, but just the opposite is happening, and quite rapidly.

There really was a huge conspiracy of the elite to raise their own wealth by forcing working wages down via job export and illegal labor import. Every article I see about "poor immigrants" fails to mention that they are:

1. illegal
2. a direct harm to the poorest US citizens by competing with them

Trump is doing an exceptionally good job as president, and we have more than six more years to go until the end of his second term!

Something is wrong.

We are not resisting.

The rest of the world can see this and are talking about it too. They predicted that America would rise up quite some time ago and we did not,


How did the labor movement rise in America in the first place? HUNGER

Wow, announced by president change my mind 3 times a day. You can certainly bet your business on what trump announces. Too funny.

The markets are the economy? Sorry the economy is buying and selling of goods and services. which react to actual changes and don't react in a week.

Is that why Ryan is working to undermine Trump's efforts? He got his marching orders from the Commie Think Tank on as long was we keep giving illegal jobs while thumbing our noses at American's especially White Working Class Americans, then Trump will be powerless to stop it?

The day after Midterms is when the American people stop saying "Pretty Please" to Trump. He will either do OUR bidding or get trampled underfoot along with the rest of the sorry rotten bastards. Trump hasn't seen pressure from his base yet. It will be a different game after the midterms. Even if the Blue wave materializes. Which it WONT!

No I said the economy doesn't; react to announcements. The stock market reacts to anything and sometimes to nothing at all for no rational reason that anyone can find.

He presided over our coming out of an economic crash of epic proportions (Our next democrat President may have to do the same). Obama stood as an example of intellectual honesty and integrity, and he continued a long tradition that allowed us to be seen by the rest of the world as standing for American values. That is, the kind of American values that existed when America was great. I guess what some of us think made America great is wildly different than what others think made America great.

These days, Donald Trump represents American values of what ? Con Man ? Bullshit artist ? Pathological liar ? A guy who wants to tear down all of our institution (domestic and international) ?

This doesn't only affect how the rest of the world sees us. How are we supposed to explain it to children, when we have a President so lacking in all the character attributes that Americans used to consider good ?

When it was only our music, so bereft of positive messages about love or goodwill, but more about bling, drugs or violence, that was one thing. But now we've devolved to having a president who is an embarrassment to any honest intelligent person.

I’m not the one that voted for him twice, that would be you. I also recall you defending him, always saying “Obama is doing a good job”.

So why the hell are you asking me what he accomplished? I never voted for Obama, and was constantly critical of his actions.

Let’s not forget that the obstructionist Republicans blocked everything and anything he attempted. Except for Obamacare, because PPACA is Heritage Foundation most prized legislation, which is why Trump and the Republicans bitch about it a lot, yet never do anything to repeal and replace.

To me it feels like you are saying working class Americans are being racist and mocking themselves, at least the part of this group 'the left' who are working class Americans.

Why is it sooooo important to point out the whites? Are illegals not taking jobs from all working class Americans. White wash it however you like, what I see is white supremace.
