76  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: If you support HRC have you met a Trump supporter post-election, and visa versa? on: January 15, 2017, 10:54:02 pm
Not to my knowledge. I honestly wish I did.

....

WHY

Because understanding how other human beings think and feel is the only way I can hope to become a better person.

Also, in liberal circles, the few Trump supporters tend to be more reasonable, like the woman I mentioned in the OP.

I like to think that the vast majority of T***p supporters are nothing like the rage-filled bigots we tend to see on TV. Those may be the loudest, but that doesn't mean they're representative.

How is not doing so even possible?

If you live in a very liberal area, don't have any relatives in America, and are too socially anxious to spend time with people outside of your pre-existing social circles, it's very possible.

This issue can't be that simplistic. Whenever there's left-wing warpath outrage, there's usually an underlying issue that none of them understand.

"I have decided that left-wingers are wrong for no reason and with no evidence whatsoever."

Just impulsively outed myself by calling myself an Irish lesbian in response to a joke my dad was telling. Nobody seemed to notice or ask what I meant when I said "me" to my dad's "What do you call an Irish lesbian?"

...interesting.

Out of morbid curiosity, what was your father's intended punchline?

Actually this is hate speech, which should be bannable.

If all hate speech always earned you an immediate ban, there wouldn't be many posters left here (not saying it's ever excusable, just that it's a sad tendency we see in many people on the internet). A few warning shots seem reasonable.

Not bannable, sure, but some of his posts should definitely be deleted (and, if the points system were still in place - which I still don't understand why we got rid of it - earn him a good number of death points).

Well, I actually prefer apple juice to orange juice, so I'd be A in this case. In general I'm extremely picky, though.

Well, it's a useful verb to describe a certain action or set of actions. FW I guess.

We should through this dichotomy out the window, along with vague polemic uses of the term "neoliberalism."

There's nothing vague about neoliberalism. It's a very specific, very definite set of political, economic and moral beliefs and assumptions with a very narrow base of advocates (although a plethora of useful idiots) and translating into very concrete policies.

I got into a screaming match at work with an Emory student about the upper middle class and their politics. Eventually it devolved into her holding her hand in my face and shouting "HILLBILLY" every time I tried to start a sentence. This is the first time I've ever been tempted to take a swing at someone during a political discussion.

what the christ
