A simple question for Trump supporters


Ignoring everything Trump has done in the past, he is now openly asking foreign countries to investigate his political opponents, so I have to ask those of you who support him: What in the holy fuck is wrong with you people?
At what point did you decide that there is no difference between right and wrong? Have all of you always secretly been this crookedly self-serving and were just waiting for the right opportunity to show your true colors? And the first mealy-mouthed jackass that suggests that they wouldn't be this way if we just listened to those bigots and talked nicey-nicey to them can just shove it where the sun don't shine. I've seen how they talk on their own forums and in person, and I've seen how they respond to differences of opinion in their own forums and in person, and I've got a bit of advice about those of you who bitch about not being treated "fairly" here: I've seen your version of "fair" on your home turf, so be damn glad we don't treat you the way you do others.

Don't you know? It triggers the liberals. That is enough reason to support him. Everything after that (especially the open racism/sexism/bigotry) is just a bonus.

Here's another question for all you "We're being picked on"abies: what message boards are more fair than this one? Show us what boards you want us to be more like.

My acid test for hyperpartisans is, "If the person involved was Clinton and not Trump, and the countries were, say, China and not Ukraine, would you still be totally cool with this?"

I’m not technically a Trump supporter though I may have to be in 2020 if Sanders or another socialist gets the (D) nomination. That said I do have to ask if you folks on the left are beginning to embrace the newly discovered 9th and 10th amendments now?

You are asking good questions today! And so politely as well. That makes me happy.

Honestly, this forum is pretty good. It could be a little bit better. I agree more than you think with a lot of you on many issues. What I donít think is helpful is when direct quotes get the Humpty Dumpty treatment when being discussed. I donít think the blatant and consistent dishonesty is necessary.

They're racists, bigots and idiots. and they are ~50% of voters.

To be fair: that is roughly the same percentage you'll find anywhere. How do you think the Brexit vote happened? Why Putin still is in charge? Why Berlusconi was one of Italy's longest serving presidents?
Bolsonaro? OrbŠn? Erdogan? Duterte?

This fighting ignorance thing is gonna take way longer than anybody thought. We might even lose.

If we keep pretending that the racist self-serving shitholes supporting Trump are even interested in playing by the rules, we are sure to lose. They can and will ignore any admonishments that aren't accompanied by physical and/or monetary punishment.

A novel line of inquiry, sure to yield dividends.

But wouldn't it be less taxing on one's psyche to wear Rep. Tlaib's new t-shirt?

Keep whimpering, shit-for-brains. Name a board that is more fair, or shut the fuck up.

You realize that the SDMB is not fair because of you. It’s fair in spite of you. You get no credit for the current level of integrity the staff demonstrate.

Since when do you self-identify as Trump supporter?

Well, if the shoe fits...

Do you
1. No longer support Trump
2. Don't give a flying fuck about the law as long as he can get away with it and win.

For some it I got mine, fuck y'all: As long as my brokerage statement has an extra zero who cares what he does to anyone else. Besides if we end up in a fascist dictatorship, there is a pretty good chance I'll be among the ruling elite.

For others, as D_Odds says, its all about trolling liberals: Ha!, you care about Democracy, civil rights, the environment, and love for yer fellow human being? What a loser, suck on this numb nutz LOL!

For a third group due to a combination of confirmation bias, and insular news sources, it is taken as an article of faith that the Democrats are worse: Sure he used his presidential for political ends, everyone does that. Clinton, Obama and Biden all did it and worse! Evidence? No I can't cite specific examples, but that just proves how good they were at covering it up!

He's here for a pity-party, so he can go brag somewhere about how every libral is so MEEEEAAAN to him.

It's like the religious folks who come to your door HOPING to be abused, because that gives them more heaven-points.

I am here to make fun of you, mock your foolishness, and generally amuse myself at your expense.

So, now that I have answered your question, here's mine.

Are you
  1. Stupid,
  2. Very stupid,
  3. Hypocritical and stupid, or
  4. Frustrated that your favored sexual companion had to go to the vet, and you are reduced to making romantic overtures to the furniture?
Don't take too much time about this - someone has to Photoshop the Nancy Pelosi/Gilbert Gottfried slashfic.

Troll? Hit the report button dummy. If you are correct I will be banned otherwise it's proof you are just another instance dishonest scum floating in the pit.

And since Sanders calls himself a socialist forgive me if I don't use the super-duper precise historic meaning of the word. I'm sure you call yourself liberal when you have nothing in common with classic liberalism.

Okay, I'll bite...

What in the seven sons of Sam Hill do the 9th and 10th Amendments have to do with Trump openly flouting the law??

Wow. First post I've seen from you in days, and this is what you Crazy-Glued your balls back on to post?? I'd ask you to consider that if you weren't a coward of such great degree, maybe you wouldn't be named all those things you mentioned. But that would engender a level of introspection that I just don't think you possess.

Y'know, at least Bricker has the sense -- and the class -- to quietly slink away.

Expectorations,

If you don't know the difference you should probably just shut up now and avoid embarrassment.

P.S. And please don't start telling me that Hitler was a socialist just like Bernie.

Well, octopus said heíd vote for Trump over Bernie or another socialist and EP said octopus didnít know what a socialist was. As someone who likes Bernie largely because heís a socialist, I was just like ďUmm...hang on a secĒ.

But yeah, this is all just a tangent. Forget I said anything.

More than once on this board the question has been asked of Trump supporters: What is the minimum Trump could do to cause you to oppose him?
Care to guess what the few responses were?

At least those would be honest answers.

Apologies. I am just sick and tired of so many folks bleating "SOCIALIST!! OMG!!!" without the faintest notion of what the term means other than "Something I am scared of because I've been told to be".

I suppose I'm a tad sensitive.

Does anybody here on the SDMB actually self-identify as a Trump supporter? Everytime we had "questions for Trump supporters," the vast majority of such posts weren't from Trumpers, but from people trying to project or guess what Trumpers think. Person A accusing B of supporting Trump is vastly different than B actually proclaiming his support of Trump.
