I don't feel bad at all taking the "high road" in the face of a silly argument. A real response is earned, not given. If someone throws nonsense around, it gets what it deserves : dismissive contempt. If somebody tries to explain to me that the Earth is flat, I don't feel a need to prove to them that it's round. The lashback, as well who it has come from on here, has only made me feel vindicated in my statements. I'm a little surprised at how utterly predictable it is, but I probably shouldn't be.

Translation - late 20's, early 30's, professional student, public sector AA housing grunt as work experience - which apparently self servingly qualifies him or her as a social justice warrior. Crusaders slightly older cousin. Okie doke.

I guess she isn't anymore, if he married her. Illegals can't be "common law", can they ? Didn't he pick her up for the "audition" from in front of a Home Depot ?

Some views are not to be tolerated, and I make no apology for that. That's not bigotry. That's standing up to people who must to be stopped.

In contrast to the weak statements from Democratic "leadership" about giving these monsters "a chance", I have absolutely zero interest in giving any quarter.
Do yourself a favor. Go back and re-watch Jonathan Pie's youtube rant about why Trump won. I'm sure somebody has already brought it to your attention, but it would be worth your time to go back & re-watch it. And pay especially close attention to the part where he talks about how its not really an argument for a liberal to just call the other side a name like sexist or racist or bigoted and then to sit back and act like they've just proven ... anything.

Take it from someone who is NOT a Trump supporter, when you try to do that, it just demonstrates how weak your position really is. You might think you've just scored bigtime points, but anyone watching who wasn't already in the tank for your side anyways, will be struck by how weak your argument must be in order for you to resort to such simple minded tactics.

Sorry, you can disregard the above. Just did a backread through the thread and realized who I was talking to. Please just refer to my earlier post that was quoted above by cabez

My view of Trump? Sexist? Absolutely. Not sure how anyone can sincerely dispute that.

Bigot/racist? I don't know about that...not in my mind, at least in the way that term is applied in US domestic culture (derogatory beliefs/opinions about American citizens of African, Jewish, Hispanic, Native American origin).

XENOPHOBE? Well, in his public pronouncements, he sure seems to be, though I am open to the idea that the comments about Mexicans and Arabs/Muslims don't represent his true beliefs...that those comments are more in the category of crude, nasty, "turn out the base" electioneering lying (an extreme version of what politicians do...tell the more ignorant/fearful portions of their base what they want to hear in order to get out their vote). Expressing a desire to clean up some immigration issues doesn't necessarily render one a xenophobe. Trump's comments sure make him one, but let's see what he does.

I do agree with lotr10 that when you throw around bigot and racist at people like Romney and Bush (and most white males that you disagree with politically) that the terms lose meaning. I think it's one of the more interesting results of this election...the possible end of the "racist" era, where every white male public official is deathly afraid of someone calling them a racist. Maybe that change can extend into the American newsroom and boardroom. That would be a healthy change.

I'm not "accepting" anything. I will be doing everything that I can to contribute to protesting, stalling, thwarting, whatever, Trump's four years (or less) of being President. I am not the only one who feels this way. Get ready for a massive attempt to grind the clown show to a standstill.
So basically the stuff you complained Republicans were doing to Obama? Of course when they did it it was racism but you are doing it on principle...got it

You wasted your time typing a lot of nonsense.

I'm not going to dignify any of it with debate. It's completely off-base and not to be taken seriously.

I can only conclude that you are also a bigot, a sexist, and a racist.
I see what you did there.

Smug, condescending attitude. Refusal to debate. Calling others names in an attempt to stop discussion.

Nice caricature of a typical liberal.
