Only Cult Members Will Reverse Long Held Positions

Here's a perfect example of uninformed Trump Lovers making bogus statements. '

 

"Obama was President for 8 years and the Obama Cult never, never had the gall to call him out. Not even when he lied and said "if you like your doctor and health insurance you can keep it"....and that is a lie that has hurt millions"

 

1. The above was NOT a lie, it was a misunderstanding of how Obamacare worked. They never thought about 2% of the population would want to keep health plans that did NOT meet the new minimum standards Obamacare brought to the health insurance market. That was a perfectly reasonable calculation.

 

2. Even if one insists the above was a lie, Trump Lovers ignore hundreds of lies by their Supreme Leader, who's a pathological liar, and instead focus on this one misunderstanding in 8 years. Unbelievable.

 

3. 98% of Americans could and did keep their doctors.

Thank you for proving my point. Trump has a wide array of cult members who idolize him and agree with everything he does, even if that means changing their own positions on a variety of political issues I listed in the first message of this thread. 

 

I admire and respect President Obama. But over the course of his 8 years in the White House, there were decisions he made, or actions he took, which I disagreed with and/or wound up criticizing Obama.  I posted my disagreements and/or criticism of the president in this forum. Why? Because I was not a cult member, I had no problem disagreeing with the President. 

 

Based upon numerous studies, it's a well known fact that virutally all Cult members are incapable of disagreeing with or criticizing their Supreme Leader.

A mature adult is totally capable of seeing eye to eye with another person without any "supreme Leader" or "Cult" trash talk being in the equation (except for those who prefer insults to sincere exchanges of ideas).

 

And, when talking politics, basic ideology is the driving force. When in agreement on that, it is only reasonable to be in agreement as to how  it is implemented.


And when it is "implemented" through lies, appointing White Nationalists, obstruction of justice, ethics violations, and kneeling to an enemy of our country, it is no longer "reasonable" to accept that implementation.


If you share an ideology and a vision of America - what is there to disagree with? Certainly not silly claims like "kneeling to an enemy of our country".


Trump truly is "kneeling to an enemy of our country" so it is part of his "ideology". Sad that some seem to be OK with that and accept it. Appointing White Nationalists, obstructing justice, violating ethics rules are obviously part of trump's "ideology" too.  Sad that some seem to accept those things also.

Talking about cults think about the Obama cults, the Bernie Sanders socialist cult, the Elizabeth Warren socialist cult, and the many more left wing cults.

A LITTLE CRITICAL THINKING from left wing posters would be a good thing but I do not think that
CRITICAL THINKING is in their DNA.

One can never depend on cult members to understand the dynamics of what's happening within the cult. Many long time Republican policies have been completely reversed by Trump without any resistance from members of the party or his dedicated cult members. Whatever Comrade Trump says or does becomes the gospel.

 

There is no diversity of opinion allowed and anyone who disagrees with the Supreme Leader in the White House is fed into the TRUMP SHREDDER. I thought this was America where diversity of opinion is not only allowed, it is healthy. I never imagined an America where members of the party are not allowed to disagree with the President.

Oh, you mean like "Marxists", "Socialists", "Demodupes", "Radical Left", "Looney Left", Less Wise", etc. ??????


Oh I mean like "Marxist" which is a perfectly valid political ideology that has been around for a century and a half and certainly an interesting topic for discussion; like "socialists" which some Dems claim to be; l have not seen "Demodupes" except in response to "GoperDupes", like "radical Left" in response to "RWNJ" and throw Less Wise  in that package. Now there is still "Republicans suck" - I haven't seen it's counterpart, have you?

 

That's my take to the silly, "Oh you mean" post - I'm sure Fish will have his.

Cult
Description In modern English, the term cult has come to usually refer to a social group defined by its unusual religious, spiritual, or philosophical beliefs, or its common interest in a particular personality, object or goal.

======================================================

Again the Democratic party is cult.

Bottom line is this is just another example of the kettle calling the pot black. I do get a kick out of how the radical left members of this board and there every day spin...I guess it gives them something to do.


Then how do you explain centrists and left wingers here criticizing Pelosi, other Democrats and Obama, yet you and other trump supporters will offer no criticism of trump (even his vacation spending)?

There you go ...if you want to talk about cult members that would be any political group.

So your thread is just so much to ado about nothing.

I was an Obama supporter, yet I criticized him for many things.  Have you criticized trump for anything .........  including his spending what Obama spent on vacations in an entire year in just one lousy month? Have you criticized trump spending on vacations in one year what Obama spent in an entire 8 year term?
