Do you honestly believe the right is any less radicalized ??? I've said it before and I;ll say it again. I didn't leave the GOP, IT LEFT ME. It took a hard right turn, got in bed with fundy christians and has become completely unrecognizable to me. I do not see any of the old GOP in today's crop of rethuglicunts. What I see are mean petty little tyrants beating us with their bibles while ignoring every word Jesus ever spoke. The Sander's and AOC's of the world have always been around. Their inclusion in the democratic party is really nothing new. There's always been a hard left fringe. But there are still a whole bunch of left leaning centrist out there. The GOP on the other hand seems to have purged anyone remotely moderate as they have pursued an increasingly radical hard right, if not down right fascist agenda.

Then you aren't paying attention (or just paying to what the legacy media tells you to) to what people are actually saying. Try listing to the new crop of people on the right. But you see as soon as anyone gains any traction the legacy media dub them sexist racist homophobic nazis and the useful idiots go on full attack. It's absolutely ridiculous.

And here is the problem with Trump and his supporters in a nutshell. First they seem to think that “Fuck off” is a perfectly OK Presidential Response but then they take it a step further and make “Fuck off” an actual part of their platform.

Obamacare allow access to health insurance to those who couldn’t get it otherwise.
- Fuck Off you socialists.

Global Warming is a major threat to future of life on earth.
- Fuck Off it’s a hoax.

Trump and his inner circle have had suspicious meetings and interactions with Russians during the campaign and then lied about it under oath.
- Fuck Off it’s a witch hunt

It has been verified that Trump has told thousands of lies and exaggerations since being elected.
- Fuck Off it’s fake news.

McCain was a hero who was held as a prisoner of war for five years and tortured.
- Fuck Off he was no hero, he got captured.

Well, rational discussions did not work so fuck off seems to be the next logical step.


Fyi i love the jonh the brain stuf. The leftists full out attacked him for years, then when trump gets elected they all came out of the woodwork as neo liberals or all out socialists and since the brain was anti trump and screwed everyone on the healthcare bill he suddenly became a darling of the left. If you guys could be any more transparent.

I am not listening to the media. I don't need the media to tell me what the folks on my own facebook page are posting !!! I don't need the media to tell me what friends are saying when I am visiting them. I don't need the media to tell me what my customers were saying when I was making sales calls at their businesses. I'm not listening to the media. I'm listening to real, live, people in person. I don't need the media to "explain" to me what a bunch of sanctimonious assholes the legislature in Texas is right now with their death penalty for abortion bill. Are you saying that's not seriously hard line radical, if not in fact down right fascist ??? You can't much more extreme than that !!!!! The fact they even suggested it is off the fucking charts !!!

The Texas bill is absolutely ridiculous and is the natural counter action to the leftists supporting post partum abortion. Abortion should be delt w/ on a local level.

This is what i hear from the majority of people on the right, or those who were once democrats who now identity as classical liberals. Let people live their lives. This is something that the religious right of the 80s and 90s could not grasp when they held power and now that the crazy authoritarian leftists have power they are completely out of control. They are no different. In fact IMO they are far worse. At least religious people had their magic sjy creature who was filling their heads w/ that insanity. What excuse do these new puritans have?

We are in another moral panic. Look around man.

Post partum abortion ?? SERIOUSLY ?? In every state in the nation it's called MURDER and people go to prison for it. If you honestly believe that's what liberals are pushing for, YOU'RE the one that's been drinking too much Faux News kool-aid ??

I'm seeing just the opposite. I have more than a few friends that, like my self, 20 years ago were right leaning centrists to moderately conservative. But the GOP got in bed with the fucking preachers and started pandering to the hard core evangelicals and have abandoned anything remotely centrist or moderate. If you're not a hard core, hard line conservative, then you're just a RINO and out of the party you go. And please explain how the crazy authoritarian liberals have "the power" when the GOP had the white house and the senate and had held both houses for the last 6 years ??

Liberals held “the power” because they control Hollywood. All these movies and TV shows pushing a “liberal” agenda and brainwashing the citizens. They have the process backwards. Hollywood has one agenda only, money. They aren’t making Avengers movies to push an agenda, they’re making them because people buy tickets. A LOT of tickets. The movies that get made aren’t made to push an agenda, they’re made to make money. If the movies tend to have a “liberal” message it’s because the people, by buying tickets, have said these are the movies we want to see.

Scientists use data to produce a picture of a black hole 65 million light years away and everyone thinks, “How cool is that?”
Scientists use data to produce a picture of climate change here on earth and all of sudden people think they are lying.

Sorry but for there to be non binary thinking there has to be two viewpoints that are on equal footing.
In the world of science that is usually not the case.
You have flat earthers and those who know the world is not flat. Are we supposed to give these two views equal weight?
Climate change vs. Climate Change Deniers
Evolution vs. Intelligent Design.
Windmills cause cancer vs No they don’t

There was another post of mine pointing out how Trump supporters are against anything they don’t understand and the problem is that they understand very little.
I happen to believe in climate change, and some tenants of evolution, and I don't think wind mills cause cancer.

Sure, the world is flat (Just kidding) What I don't get about the flat earth people is, you look up and everything else is round, the moon, the sun, the planets, yet the Earth is flat?

Anyhew, to make the leap that since there is climate change that we are all going to die in 12 years unless we vote for the Green Deal, a deal that all democrats either voted against or voted not present, is insane. Additionally, there are a myriad of questions as to how human beings are effecting climate change and what should be done about it. To question loons on the Left about the Green Deal, for example, just means I have a functioning brain and a pulse.

As for creation, I am an Old Earth Creationist, something you know full well because we have discussed it.

Do you believe like AOC and the rest of the Looney Left that the earth will end in 12 years?

Hmm?
