Nope. I came very close to donating to Jill Stein before she picked Ajamu Baraka. And then she picked Ajamu Baraka.

Note that the police department very quickly threw this officer under the bus. That's rare. The only other case I can think of like that was Walter Scott's killing in NC. That shows that they realize just how indefensible this one is.

And yet it speaks even greater volumes about similar killings (Philando Castile, Alton Sterling) where officers got zero reprimand.

So I get the impression that many of you feel that people who disagree with you politically are either bigoted, stupid, uneducated, or evil.  I mean in general, not just in regards to Trump. What percentage of republicans are in your opinion normal people who just disagree with you about what is best for the country?

90%. But the fact that even ~10% of people who support a major party presidential nominee are

bigoted, stupid, uneducated, or evil

is concerning. This also applies to the stupid/uneducated folks that support Hillary who can't construct a better argument than "I read on Tumblr that Trump wants to personally behead every Muslim in the world, so he shouldn't be President" because fxck that shyt.

Liberals/leftists/progressives who oppose Trump under the guise of being more intelligent aren't doing so to belittle Trump supporters per se, they're trying to reinforce the notion that the country deserves better. I've met plenty of leftists who would have welcome John Kasich, Jon Huntsman, or even Marco Rubio as the nominee of the Republican Party because, while they may not agree with them, they're at least sane people who try to think rationally and don't try to "rally the troops" whenever a journalist says something mean about them.

I still believe that a vast majority of Trump supporters are either folks that I just plain disagree with, or are misguided in their conclusions to solving problems. I know plenty of Trump supporters (I live with two) who can construct logical arguments that I can at least understand why they feel the way they feel, even if I don't think it's the right way to feel. What I try to explain to them is that making Trump the figurehead for your movement is self-destructive, and will only do more damage to its image and legitimacy.

tl;dr, there's no problem with being a Trump supporter as far as I'm concerned, but the fact that so many of them are certifiable bigots says more about the state of the Republican Party and politics in America than it does about Trump himself.

24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Patriotic FL SD isn't politically correct; no kneeling during national anthem on: September 18, 2016, 09:26:00 am
I don't understand the title? What's more politically correct than this?

Exactly. Apparently political correctness is only when liberals tell people not to say the n-word, not when conservatives literally force people to worship America.
25  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you stand for the Pledge of Allegiance/National Anthem? on: September 18, 2016, 09:23:50 am
I didn't stand for the pledge my last two years of high school. I stand for the national anthem at sporting events, but I typically just think to myself "let's get this over with." I'm not a huge fan of patriotism.
