I was just reading on another discussion group about the left being a cult.  One of the points given was that debate over differing opinons is met with hostility such as your posts.

 

I note that instead of questioning what I posted, it came back with a differing accusation.

 

I originally questioned another poster about making this about another poster, yet you jumped in with your comments.

I really have to smile when Rk talks about leftiists tactics   His interpretations are usually amazing.  But what can you expect for a poster that happens to be   a Trump follower.

Trump's election reflects a deep need to maintain or even strengthen white Christian cultural supremacy in the US.  Which is why the Republican party is fielding so many white supremacists, Holocaust deniers, and neo-nazis on local tickets. 

 

How do you stop it?  Two things:

 

1) End white fragility.   People who are working to eliminate their bias know who they are.  They are the ones who don't get immediately defensive when talking about racism.   They need to make sure they keep working on their bias, raise their kids not to be biased, teach themselves to be aware of bias, and call it out when they see it.  

 

2)  Vote for Democrats.  Fight like heck to stop Christian precepts from infecting our legal system and government.    Many Trump supporters want this to be a Christian nation.   But religious states always discriminate and they most often discriminate against women.    And a huge problem with court rulings that permit encroachment of religion where we traditionally have freedom from religion, is that someday, when there is a different majority religion (even just regionally), people will use that religion to discriminate againt Christians.  And it's all our fault for allowing religious rulings. 


Wonderful - "white guilt" and now "Christian guilt".


You may have guilt.   I don't.   Get to work and you'll feel better.

Thank you for pointing out what I have been saying over and over again. Attacking Trump is not the way. Attacking policies and pointing out what is wrong with them is by far more effective than attacking Trump.

Concentrate on what he has done. concentrate on the results of his policies., Concentrate on the continues lies and debunk them.
Don't bother about Trump the person. concentrate on what he is doing as President.
There are now so many things that we can concentrate on. that not pointing out the issues that are affecting us now. and that will affect us in the future   is really wasting our time.

Eventually, Trump will leave but his legacy and what he does to this country will not. So, what is more important to you?

Nothing but excuses and rationalization from Cult Members. We elect a President to be a role model for our children. We elect a President to demonstrate a high level of integrity and honesty, someone our young people can respect and admire. Yes, somebody like President Obama.

That is ridiculous. We elect a President to run the Administration in a way we envision our nation. Somebody like Obama who leads us down a Socialist path is not my vision of the right man for the job.

 

And the rest was just more of the hatred spewing. 



The "we" is a minority of dishonest and un-American racists, fascists  and wannabe kleptocratic totalitarians (the original haters) who - only with the aid and interference of Russians - managed to elect a kakistocratic abomination to be the turd floating in the nation's punchbowl.

 

Nope -  no way - trump has never been patriotic or a good American - nor do the majority of Americans who did NOT vote for him either approve of trump or support him...
