"manchild idiot" - really??

 

As to the election - calm down. If the neo-Marxists of the Progressive Movement ever regain power I'm sure you'll be happy to see them get rid of the Constitution.


Manchild idiot?  Yes, of course, an approproate description of what the HIllary/Obama haters put into office.

 

Many "snowflakes" worry about anyone centrist or slightly to the left, erroneously labeling them as Marxists, etc. As far as "getting rid of the constitution", can you show any instance where the Democrats tried to  do that? Of course you can't.


I tend to disagree. "Manchild idiot" is not something that has a place in an adult, serious discussion. It is more like something for a schoolyard shouting match of who can make up the most insults. In this I must concede, we on the Rational Right do fall short in such contests.

 

As to the Constitution, there are posters who besmirch it with the "Old White men" comments and the like and attack the very structure of divided government and limited powers which are at it's base. As to the neo-Marxism of the Progressive Movement - that is not centrist or slightly left. It is far left of the traditional Liberalism of the Democratic Party. Liberals and centrists and slightly left support the Constitution as written and do not attempt to bring about change via street violence and shutting down of town hall meetings. 

 

Your lack of understanding of the term, "snowflake" leads to the erroneous comments such as above.


All of the stuff you posted is only your opinion, nothing factual at all.  As far as the term "snowflake" ......... you seem to think that somehow it only applies to persons on the left which simply isn't true at all. So it does seem that "lack of understanding"  on someone's part besides mine leads to erroneous comments.

 

Again:    As far as "getting rid of the constitution", can you show any instance where the Democrats tried to do that? 

 

 


"Snowflake" refers to a mindset.

 

"Getting rid of the Constitution" refers to those obsessing with the popular vote as opposed to the Constitutional dictates as to elections.

 

So, yes, I can show how some try to do that regularly here. Every time you see a post about the number of votes for Hillary you are seeing an example.

 

I hope I have adequately addressed your concerns.


Yes, "snowflake" is a mindset and neither 'left', independent', or 'right'.

True. However, those needing counseling and playdough over the elections are probably more left.

 

Trying to get support for amending the Constitution is not unconstitutional nor "getting rid of the Constitution". Trying to get state laws changed governing how Electoral voters vote is neither of those either.

Doing so within the Constitution is fine, taking it to the streets is not.

 

The "number of votes for Hillary" being brought up by anyone is not "getting rid of the Constitution" either. So no, you haven't given an example of that.

Well, it is not accepting the Constitution's process.

 

No you haven't.

What else can I do for you?

Yes, and our President's name is Trump, not the other cutsey variations.  The Republican Party is capitalized and it's members are "Republicans, not "repugs".

 

So, your point is??


So one of our Right Wing posters has repeatedly referred to Democrats here as "Loony Liberals", "Less Wise" "Shallow Thinkers", etc.  So your point is?


Try to follow the bouncing ball. The subject is the names of our political Parties and and their members, again, I point out it is "Republicans" not "repugs".


Yep, it does have 11 characters .............. 'Republicon' !!

It is - and please always refer to it as -  the DEMOCRAT PARTY.  This is important because there is NOTHING "Democratic" about the DEMOCRAT party.  We see that in the suppression of free speech, ideas different from the liberal progressive narrative etc...

 

So please, when referring to or talking about it, call it what it is: The Democrat Party and NOT, NEVERwill be  the DEMOCRATIC party as calling it Democratic lends a legitimacy that is no longer (if ever it was) applicable.

Veeeeerrrrry interesting .....

So, applying your own judgemental criteria to "today's" Republican Party which promotes Fascism, NOTHING TO DO with a 'Republic', the Republican Party should be renamed the Nazi Party.

 

John Kennedy - perhaps the last middle of the road Democrat - could not survive in today's Democrat party...Imagine, if you will, a Democrat candidate standing before his multitude of followers and stating "Ask not what your country can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your country."  That candidate would today, be run out of town on a rail and summarily dismissed.

Actually, that's what today's Republican Party would do to Lincoln for his progressive ideas.

So so now you have changed your of the meaning of 'snowflake'. Does that mean that we all can now use that new meaning or is it changed only for those you agree with?

 

How is pointing out that Trump did not win the popular vote even though he claimed he really did getting rid of the Constitution? Even trying to change it so the popular vote becomes the decider does not mean that anyone is trying to get rid of the Constitution.

Funny how some actually call themselves Republican and actually believe it while voting consistently for the weakest Republican in the Primaries and ALWAYS voting Democrat in the real (deal) elections.


The Republican Party traditionally had many moderate members. It's funny how some Far Right Republicons haven't noticed their Party change so drastically and radically by moving so far to the Extreme Right. No more moderates.

I suspect that the orange Elmer Fudd act alike's demise will be similarly observed by the majority of humans in the world.


Margaret Thatcher was right. No one can dispute the logic of her words. Instead we see silliness about the songs radical lefties sing from "The Wizard of Oz" and Elmer Fudd and, of course, the usual "orange" jazz.

 

Now, back to basics - without such silliness, can anyone logically dispute, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”?

How about the loss of free speech - you cool with that??

 

As far as I know, this person still has his tongue and no one wired his jaws shut. It was a simple matter of people protesting a known racist and pedophile. Wherever Milo is, he is still free to spew his ugly filth. BTW, you do know that being canned by Breitbart shut him down far more effectively than any college protests? Seems even Breitbart didn't want his stink sticking to them.


He was invited to speak. People were interested in hearing him speak. They were both thwarted by the radical mobs in the street. Is that not a denial of "free speech"? Let's not cloud the issue with Breitbart - let's stick to the Berkeley situation. If you want we can then talk about other issues.
