Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

Queen, knight and pawn all have him in check at the same time. Not possible in chess.

Is it that you see some sort of pattern to what he does and doesn't tweet which this should fit into differently? I see no rationality to his tweeting practices at all
Are you conceding that you are holding him to a different standard?

1. The Media always held Republicans to a different standard when it came to racism. Think Harry Reid when he made fun of Obama's African American dialect Al Sharpton "forgave him" which would have been the end of any Republicans political career.

2. He created this different standard. From the beginning of his campaign when he didn't just come out full force against David Duke etc. He could've nipped it in the bud. Instead he keeps on killing every opportunity to put it to rest.

That the media is busy with it we know is their bias. There are others who have now joined their bias. My opinion is that BOTH Obama and Trump should have come out more strongly against the KKK, but let's be honest, the vast majority of what we are seeing now has ZERO to do with the KKK and EVERYTHING to do with dislike of Trump and confirmation bias.

This is confusing. Are you saying BO did not condemn the KKK all the time or are you talking about violence against a group that wants to exterminate the blacks he did not speak out against?

Dunno.
 But I don't believe that Trump hates Jews,start with his kids.

Yes they hate him, but you didn't answer this

Did he ever condemn the KKK? Did he say anything when they stabbed counter proteters?

That has been addressed many times upthread. He clearly denounced Duke numerous times until one time when they asked for the 478th time (I made that number up) they made a whole faux outrage about it. The faux outrage will keep happening no matter what he says.

Don't guess. Trump did denounce the KKK but now everyone is upset that it wasn't fast enough or sincere enough or whatever. Find me where Obama denounced the KKK or said anything about their violence during his presidency.

Did they bomb a church or something during his presidency or did I miss something?

ETA: What terrorist acts did the KKK commit while BO was in office?

The idea that Trump needs to think before opening his mouth? I mean please, even his biggest supporters loved him for the fact that he has no filter and "tells it like it is."

Trump worrying about causing chaos? What rock have you been living under.

Trump needs to condemn hate and not name names? Well geez, when did that change? That is one of Trump's - and the right's - biggest talking points. Rightly so, IMHO. If you can't recognize the evil and name it, you can't fight it.

But anyway, he did NOT condemn them equally on both sides. He made a half hearted comment about bigotry and said "both sides" with a wave like  a parent patronizing squabbling siblings. If he wanted to condemn hate and bigotry from both sides, he could have easily spelled out K.K.K. and A.N.T.I.F.A.

If he did indeed sufficiently condemn both sides initially, why then did he do his condemnation 2.0 yesterday? He certainly couldn't care less about what the press was saying - he tells it like it is without worrying about being PC, remember?

It's because he wasn't condemning anyone the first time round. He was doing the same thing he has done numerous times previously when faced with condemning the Alt Right - delay delay delay delay delay until he finally condemns. That way he gets his condemnation in, and also gets the Alt Right to believe, rightly, that he was only doing it for the press, but doesn't really mean it.

Today, his off script outburst revealed that to be true. He spoke about the good of the Alt Right not because he wants to ALSO condemn Antifa, but because he supports the identity politics of the Alt Right.
You are so illusioned that you just go on and on with your illusions instead of addressing the issues. For that reason I will explain my case just once more and I am done. I see there are 5 more pages now to read which I don't have time anyway..   :)

I already said there is a difference when trying to win over a political opponent  by calling him low energy Jeb and speaking about a high profile cases. He doesn't wanna have the same history of BHO who always called out the white before knowing facts.  And again again and again. He said there is hate and both sites and we should not tolerate it. He later called them out by name. He then again said the bottom line that there was hate on both sides and bottom line is that they both did equal violence and called them out.   Yes he was not afraid to call out the נעבעכדיגע left like all other politicians and the MSM is going nuts. And he actually told it to them yesterday. he said "I am calling out the left for being violante as well and you and the media don't like it" Then they were trying to interrupt him "wait a minute, i'm not finished, i'm not finish fake news. Priceless. And I will repeat There is moral equivalency for the relevant acts, which is getting together, year after year, to fight each other in us cities.  That one group is objectively worse is not relevant.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.
