John

Navy seals are scouring the bottom of the Indian Ocean to find his body and reverse the damage done to it by Obama.

I expected to find a link to an article in the onion. I think you should write one and submit it to them.

You have to realize that indicating that you are a Trump supporter here will prompt questions.


I’ll start with a generic one. What appeals to you that motivates that support?

I understand, Jim, and thanks for asking politely.  Given the polite tone of your post/question, i'm sure you can understand that at times one should be able to simply and freely express support for someone without having to justify that support.  I just thought formerly's post, which i now know is on twitter, was pretty funny.

Its not "having" to justify support. You're not guilty of anything. Its just wanting to know why some support Trump.

Those who don't support Trump usually state why. They're not justifying or feel a need to justify. They just saying why. Asking a Trump supporter why is simply getting the other side.

bklyngirl is trolling us. Don't feed that, just ignore it, that will make it go away.

You know, I used to subscribe to that white-working-class-jobless stuff as depicted in Hillbilly Elegy and Strangers in their Own Land, White Trash, and similar titles that try to explain our current climate.

After careful consideration  grin , I now subscribe to the idea that it's more about white resentment over losing unearned privilege  over women, POC, and other formerly oppressed folks.


Aggrieved Entitlement’

For white men across the Western world, special rights and privileges once came as a birthright. Even those who lacked wealth or power were assured a status above women and minorities.

Though they still enjoy preferential status in virtually every realm, from the boardroom to the courthouse, social forces like the Me Too movement are challenging that status. To some, any steps toward equality, however modest, feel like a threat.

“There’s just this sense that ‘we used to be in charge, and now we’re not the only ones in charge, so we’ve been attacked,’” said Lilliana Mason, a University of Maryland social scientist who studies group identity and politics.

“If you have a sense that you’re owed, that your deserved status is being threatened, then you start to fight for it,” Ms. Mason said.

This kinda thing...


“I had a convo recently with someone whose father is completely addicted to Fox,” writes Nichols. “I think it provides old people with a vessel for expressing rage about the world changing in ways they can’t control, and puts names on what would otherwise be ‘just the way the world is.'”

Nichols in particular notes how Fox makes its elderly viewers feel more comfortable by, paradoxically, filling them with paranoid delusions. This works, he says, because they feel safer believing that there’s a single, malign force that is behind changes to society that they don’t like, rather than simply a gradual evolution of cultural mores.

Nichols concludes by saying that while he sympathizes with older people being dismayed by watching the world change so quickly, he doesn’t think it’s good for them or anyone else to have a network that specializes in pumping them full of fear 24 hours a day.

 These are alternate oranges. I'll let Kellyanne explain it to you. See, at my inaugural, which was the largest inaugural ever, special oranges were made to give out to the crowd which was the biggest crowd ever seen on the mall. It was bigger than the crowd at the "I have a dream" speech --- whoever made that speech--- but my crowd were the best people ever, better than his people were, because my crowd keeps my poll numbers higher than his.
