Remind them that Trump doesn't give a **** about the 2nd Amendment.

Trumpco has not given them a script for it.
So, they shut the **** up.
It's amazing.

Give it a try.


How do you square your opinion about Trump supporting the Constitution
with Trump's opinion the govt should confiscate Americans' guns
even when it lacks the right to

"...the police saw [this guy was a] problem, they didn’t take any guns away.
I think they should have taken them ... anyway, whether they had the right or not."​


"To go to court would have taken a long time. So ...
take the guns first, go through due process second."​



The "funny" part is that people in the Roosevelt Room at the time kept reminding Trump that the govt must respect Americans' rights.
Trump was having none of that respecting Americans' rights BS.
Trump just kept on about how he wanted to violate the 2nd Amendment.

they don't care. Trump is their corrupt political girlfriend and if they admit now that they were conned (which is obvious) then they admit they are idiots. it's an ego thing at this point.

Why would you want to silence people you disagree with? That sounds contrary to the American way.

...or restrict reporters from covering an American President. or hide info from the American people. or, hell, breaking tradition and not showing personal taxes as a candidate (to give the American people more info on each candidate).

Southern men standing up for the New York City crook and con man. this will make for the best movies.

I believe that this phenomenon, which is a real.psychological thing, is the sole reason modern conservatism continues to exist.

Most of us are genetically predisposed to follow. We are a social species and most must follow lest we get nothing done fighting to see who is on top.

But follwers need to believe in who they follow. If it turns out their leader is a venal asshole, they are still reluctant to admit it to themselves. It causes an existential crisis, not being able to select a leader properly.

So they cling to the one they have and tell themselves whatever they need to tell themselves to avoid the pain and uncertainty that rejecting their leader would cause.

So, do you let the shaman talk the tribe into throwing your daughter in the volcano or do you punch him in the mouth?

Simple answer, no dissembling.

You either let him speak or make him stop. The tribe throws your daughter in the volcano or not.

Many of us "Trump supporters" are simply voting against the political left. We'll vote against Biden just the same way we voted against Clinton. There's no rule that I have to endorse everything Trump does or says anynore than there is that I have to endorse anything Biden and the nut gone left endorse.

Dictators ALWAYS disarm citizens.
Boy are Trump supporters going to be in for a surprise.
They think he's a hero because he diddles their hatred of liberals, a hatred he has helped build through his lies.
I think I am just about to the point where I WANT the war now.
I say that because there's no point in even talking to these people anymore, they don't want to talk and they won't even consider anything being said in the first place. Trump has primed them for war because Putin's playbook loves civil war.

Civil war is good for Putin, but at this point, judging by the way Trump fanatics are talking, we're past the point of no return, so we might as well get it over with.

It seems a specific description applicable only to socialists/communists.

See what I mean?

What is it going to take to get a Biden supporter to debate actual issues instead of only placing blame and spouting DNC talking points, doubt anyone from California is capable of debating actual issues as you are blinded by an ideology that has created typical liberal results, high dependence on social spending, high homeless, high poverty, rich liberal elites, poor quality of life, huge wage gap and you think Biden/Harris is the answer? ROFLMAO. the real answer is boot your radical liberals out of power and turn your legislature over the the GOP for the first time since the 60's

It's always BEEN about the ego.
If you can convince the poorest and worst Trumper that they are better than the best and richest liberal, they won't care if you pick their pockets. Hell, give them somebody to look down on, and they'll empty their pockets for you.

That's all it's ever been about because that is the secret to Trump's success, which is WHY we keep hearing and seeing carbon copies of the same boilerplate rhetoric in post after post and thread after thread.
These idiots don't speak original words and they don't think original thoughts, they just bark in unison when Trump rings the bell, just like Pavlov's dogs.

Generations of people who took pride in claiming to be able to spot a crooked big city slicker con man, when in reality they've fallen for the biggest baddest city slicker con man to ever have walked the Earth.
And I say that as someone who grew up in Washington DC and called New York my extended family's home.

I'm no Trump fan, but any idiot can see this is a biased cherry-pick. I can do that too:

So you have a case right now where somebody can buy a handgun at 21. Now, this is not a popular thing to say, in terms of the NRA. But I’m saying it anyway. I’m going to just have to say it. But you can’t buy — I mean, think of it. You can buy a handgun — you can’t buy one; you have to wait until you’re 21. But you can buy the kind of weapon used in the school shooting at 18. I think it’s something you have to think about.

SENATOR MANCHIN: It’s a no-brainer.

SENATOR FEINSTEIN: Would you sign this?

THE PRESIDENT: So — I’ll tell you what, I’m going to give it a lot of consideration. And I’m the one bringing it up. And a lot of people don’t even want to bring it up because they’re afraid to bring it up.

But you can’t buy a handgun at 18, 19, or 20. You have to wait until you’re 21. But you can buy the gun, the weapon used in this horrible shooting, at 18.

You are going to decide — the people in this room, pretty much, are going to decide. But I would give very serious thought to it. I can say that the NRA is opposed to it. And I’m a fan of the NRA. I mean, there’s no bigger fan. I’m a big fan of the NRA. They want to do it. These are great people. These are great patriots. They love our country. But that doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything. It doesn’t make sense that I have to wait until I’m 21 to get a handgun, but I can get this weapon at 18. I don’t know.

So I was just curious as to what you did in your bill.

SENATOR TOOMEY: We didn’t address it, Mr. President,

Nah, just anthropological science.

So I wouldn't expect you to know anything about or believe anything anybody told you about it.

(And your post actually illustrates my point. Did you consider that before you responded?)

Southerners are trained from birth to accept authoritarianism, it is one of the main cultural differences between Southerners and Yankees.

You've proven that 95% of your perceptions of the left consist of a well funded false narrative that exaggerates pretty much everything.
We have our fringe just as the right has theirs but for the last twenty or twenty five years you've been taught that our fringe IS our mainstream.
Hordes of people on the other side can sit here and tell you guys straight out what we believe and you just sit there calling us liars, and then repeating carbon copy crap that you just heard on right wing media.

Your mainstream leaders only recently discovered that the riots they tacitly endorsed are hurting them politically. That's your mainstream politicians, and you support them.

Are you really trying to say the governments in all the cities governed by democrats who permit daily violence aren't mainstream democrats?
