  1. I thought ‘evidence’ was your ‘thing’. Obviously not. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/pops.12485 Does this make republicans racist? “As racial, religious, and ideological identities have cumulatively moved into greater alignment with Democratic and Republican identities in recent decades, American partisans have grown increasingly identified with their parties due to the psychological effects of identity alignment captured in objective and subjective sorting mechanisms. However, we find that this effect is more powerful among Republicans than among Democrats, due to the general social homogeneity of the Republican party. Contrary to the assessments of modern political punditry, Republicans are more susceptible to identity‐based politics.” “Interestingly, in the realm of “identity politics,” it is generally the Democratic Party that is associated with the use of social identities for political gain. In fact, what we find here is that, if anything, Republicans are more responsive to the alignment of their party‐associated groups. Among Republicans, the most cross‐cutting identities are more detrimental to in‐party allegiance than they are among Democrats. Grossman and Hopkins (2016) suggest that Democrats are the party of group interests and Republicans the party of ideological purity. What we find is that Republican “purity” applies to in‐party social homogeneity. A Republican who does not fit the White, Christian mold is far less attached to the Republican Party than one who does fit the mold. This effect is stronger among Republicans than among Democrats, who include significantly more individuals whose racial and religious identities do not match those of the average Democrat. The concept of a “deal‐breaker” identity among Republicans is more feasible than it is among Democrats, as Republicans are generally associated with fewer linked social groups. In this sense, Republicans are more reliant than Democrats on their social identities for constructing strong partisan attachments.” more lies I suppose. I should give up on substantiating what I say and just shout ‘fake news’ to anything I don’t agree with.
  2. A trump mouth piece as your only source for supporting trump is scraping the barrel. Still, tell me a socialist country that has failed that is similar to democrat policies. Do you think some of the Scandanavian countries are more or less socialist than American democrats by the way? But of course, trump is the man for ordinary people, as his billionaire tax cuts show. And like I said, you can keep projecting identity politics into dems, but that’s literally all republicans have right now. “"White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?"...”"You could look over there and think the Democratic Party is no country for white men." Youre sounding like geo with his ‘the truth is out there’ sources.
  3. So that’s fair game to call into question his citizenship? Trump has a Scottish mother. Didn’t see the birthed people lose their minds over that. ‘The fact you’re defending such a conspiracy and yet have the gall to claim the left are racist is laughable you always call the left racist. Now it’s the ‘left wing identity politics’. Yet despite all that you can’t name one name. You spend all this time defending a racist and yet can’t use your own criteria for judging your own claims.
  4. No, I just said that if the only place you can source something is a Sean hannity special on YouTube, someone who is pretty much a trump advisor and took to the microphone at one of trumps Nuremberg rallies, then I’ll take it with a pinch of salt. I did ask what was said so I could reply or where else I could find the evidence and you didn’t. law and order? Trump? How many indictments do far. How many ignored subpoenas? The only thing stopping trumps indictment is the fact he’s president. Free speech? ‘The media is the enemy of the people’? Sound very dictatorish to me. And hasn’t it just come out how he wants to sensor the internet/social media? The guy fawns over dictators. He’s an authoritarian wannabe. He’s told 12000 lies and when called out on it, he attacks the media. Both democrats and republicans are capitalists. Republican just like tax cuts for billionaires. Are democrats ‘far left socialism’ in America? Which countries have failed at ‘far left socialism’ which mirrors American democrats? And identity politics has literally been the whole trump platform. At least you didn’t pretend that republicans stand for family values anymore. He’s wiped that facade away pretty quickly. I watched it, and didn’t see anyone say they wanted no borders. You won’t even say which candidate said it. A link and time stamp would suffice.
  5. Ignored what? What is your point? And you do realise recommendations aren’t random. It’s based on what else you watch on YouTube or what you google, or you’re lying and searching for these.
  6. Lol and now Gym Jordan is just randomly popping up as a recommendation.
  7. Firstly I’ve asked twice for what republicans stand for. The fact you avoid that question and just argue against democrats speaks volumes. also you talk about people outside republicans houses when you actually have maga bombers, maga terrorists. And a president offering to pay court fees for his supporters. Of the recent two shooters. Once sounded more like an incel, but if you can show he shot people because of political influence from the left then please show it. However I’ve never heard of people murderimg others for universal health care. I have over immigration and issues like abortion. The other shooter was a racist and used very similar language to the president. Another right wing racist terrorist. I’m sure regal beagle will argue he wasn’t racist though. But let’s forget the maga bomber and Charlottesville etc. Again, show me where a democrat presidential candidate states they want no borders. 1. Such as. Just give me one. He most likely. Don’t am infinite number. 5. Like I said, just give me one example. Just one. You have a high bar for what constitutes racism, and call most of the left racist. So one single example of a democratic presidential candidate who is racist should be easy.
  8. ‘Just popped up’ lol, whilst googling furiously for something. And you think it’s republican lol. Content does more than suggest. Funny how you keep getting right wing suggestions on YouTube. It’s based on your search history isn’t it. I watched it though and she said that seeking asylum wasn’t illegal. But in the context of this conversation, what is the point you’re trying to make? Who is most stupid? Because I can post link after link after link of lies and nonsense trump has said if that’s what you want. Fancy a trip to nambia from a revolutionary war airport? You want a laugh then google his speech about ‘nuclear’. ““Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world — it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican they try — oh, do they do a number — that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune — you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged — but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me — it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are — nuclear is so powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? — but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners — now it used to be three, now it’s four — but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years — but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us, this is horrible.” would be funny if he wasn’t the one holding the nuclear launch codes. So if you want to have a ‘stupid’ competition, I think this ‘trumps’ saying correctly that seeking asylum is not illegal and having a YouTube channel suggest she said otherwise. I can keep going if you want. He’s a treasure trove of stupid.
  9. Wonder what your search history must be if the only things that ‘pop up’ are so one sided, usually untrue, but then mysteriously disappear.
  10. Not in your interest but here another load of stuff I won’t back up. I can find you videos of democrats agreeing with Obama policies until they realise who suggested them. What’s your point? And Trump himself thought they had airports. Just more waffle...with no substance...pretending to not be interested...or agree with either side...but consistently arguing on one side....
  11. Would be interested to see the bit you found.
  12. Then give an actual name of a democratic presidential candidate for 2020 who is racist. If the left is racist, it should be easy. You haven’t answered any of the questions I asked above. There are questions in 1, 2, 3 , 5 and 7 you ignored. For someone so caught up on backing up claims, I’ve given lots to back mine up and you’ve given nothing. All this evidence of trump racism and yet your claim that most of the left are racist is ‘muh IdEnTiTy PoLiTiCs’. And not one presidential candidate who is racist. You’re all hot air.
  13. https://www.apnews.com/2f83c72de1bd440d92cdbc0d3b6bc08c https://wallethub.com/edu/states-most-least-dependent-on-the-federal-government/2700/ Blue states fund red states. Making things up, jut because it’s ‘your opinion’ is again meaningless.
  14. You’ve become a parody of yourself 1 - give me me what else he could have based his accusations of him not being American and instead being a Kenyan Muslim. 2 - the Central Park five have been proven innocent conclusively when he repeated his claims in 2016. Which other innocent people has he done the same to? In fact which other guilty people has he taken whole page ads out against 3 - so he’s only racist if every single person who meets him is racist? 4 - there are videos of him saying it. No need to misquote. He also lied about his reaction to the chants, despite it being on video. But you think they are vile to it’s ok. 5 - Again, name one democrat presidential candidate who is racist likely say. And we can compare. Ignoring this speak volumes. For someone so caught up in definitive evidence you happily throw the accusation out yet avoid backing it up in any way. 6 - he wasn’t just talking about immigrants, he was talking about shooting them. 7 - it’s cheap bring up that he’s racist against Muslims? So if a Democrat wanted to discriminate against Christians that would be fine? They stand for fairer society, less corruption, dealing with climate change, for starters. Back to you. 1 - projection 2 - Are you serious. AOC has had countless death threats. Trump said he would pay his supporters court fees if they got arrested for violence. We have mags terrorists. We have white supremisist shootings. Again, projection. 3 - so are you saying that the uk should get rid of the NHS because it’s ‘for free’, let’s ignore taxes, and the fact that Americans pay more tax towards their system already per person than we do. That people already pay taxes to roads, police, the forces etc. But a source saying everything should be free would suffice. 4 - Can you give a source where they want no borders. Making stuff up and ignoring the question speaks volumes.
  15. No, he thinks people who are conclusively proven innocent should be executed...just coincidental that the only innocent people he want executed are black ‘Fine people on both sides’...at a nazi rally countless people who worked with him...but that would be fake news Birtherism...why would he say Obama wasn’t born in the USA. The only piece of information he has was that he is black. And saying it ,ay hide something not so good, like being a Muslim...but not racist, because ‘mUh MuSlImS iSnT a RaCe’ ‘send them back’ ’only in the pan handle’ can you shoot immigrants You didn’t deny his dog whistles but just argue they weren’t ‘openly’ racism. Re-tweeting racists You defend this person and discount all evidence but the lefts thought processes, ideas and beliefs are naturally racist. So which of all he possible democrat presidential candidates for 2020 are naturally racist compared to the non racist trump.
  16. You have constantly called anyone on the left racist day after day. I haven’t ignored claims. I’ve given plenty of evidence, you just don’t accept any evidence, it’s a recurring theme. It’s all fake news to you. Problem is when you get to the point of defending someone like trump to the hilt it gets more ridiculous. Imagine if Corbyn had a rally where people chanted ‘send them back’ or similar. Imagine if he was sued for discriminating against Jewish people. You’d be all over it. But for those you support, he;d have to shoot a black man on the street. Though he himself said his base would still support him, and I believe it. You’d probably say it wasn’t racist still. I had you in ignore for this reason, it’s pointless. Lesson learned. It’s amazing you can’t see it because the rhetoric and the corruptness is daily.
  17. Hadn't heard of it till i just googled. But arent the 'liberal Elite' portrayed as the villians in this satire? If it was red state people portrayed as villains and shooting liberals, who then fought back, would that be more or less acceptable?
  18. The left are lost. What do republicans stand for these days? Family values? Rule of law?
  19. I watched the start and it begins with the most hypocritical cowardly American politician. Lindsey Graham’s said trump was “a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot”, then after a game of golf did a complete 180 on him and became a foaming in the mouth trump supporter. No other news outlet covered what you want to say here apart from a Sean hannity special?
  20. I started but I’m not going to watch 10 minutes of fox ‘news’. By all means tell me what it says. But if Fox News video is the only source then you’re scaping the barrel with their record. If it’s got more than opinion on there then there are surely other sources if it’s such damning news. Fox News is an ‘entertainment’ channel. White supremacy is a hoax is their latest ‘news’.
  21. I know the benghazi enquiry. And the ‘what about the emails’ investigation. They show the absolute hypocrisy of the trump administration over the mueller investigation. They lasted longer. Costed far more. People actually cooperated and answered questions (they couldn’t allow trump to because he would have committed purjury). And indicted a total of 0 people. Yet they call the mueller investigation a witch-hunt which indicted over 20 people. So point are you trying to make here? McCabe and strzok are suing the DoJ. You were making a non-argument about them. I didn’t say you supported trump, I said that both sides weren’t the same. And don’t worry, you aren’t convincing me of anything.
