I actually feel sorry for people like you that harbor this much hate because it’s really not your fault. People with fragile minds can be conditioned to hate very easily. This is what has happened to you.


All this simping over a guy who spent his career  hating on the most vulnerable members of society and leading millions of people into hating their fellow countrymen. 
 

Find better people to simp. Seriously.

 The media has driven it home in your mind over and over that anyone on the other side of your political spectrum is a grave enemy that must be destroyed and even wish death upon. I would never wish death and pain on someone just because of their political views. But I guess that’s just how one side operates now. 

Umm... Whose side just conducted a violent insurrection against the US Capitol because their guy lost? Whose side planned assassination attempts against Michigan's governor because she dared to ask people to wear a mask and tried to prevent thousands in her state from dying from a pandemic? Whose side now calls its base the KKK and neonazis?

Who spent 40 years peddling conspiracies and rhetoric that contributed to all of that?

 

Rush.

I don't know, Burgy...it ain't worth it.  There's a large group of conservatives that don't believe the insurrection was that bad.  They don't care about the assassination attempts.  They don't want to wear masks.  They don't care that they're lumped in with the KKK and neo-nazis because they probably silently agree with them.

 

The more and more our country falls into despair, the more and more I think that the people that are afflicted with this outlook on life should be looked at as alcoholics.  They can recover, some of them can beat this thing...some of them can come around and learn.

 

But the first step, as we all know, is admitting you have a problem.  People like this don't want to admit they have a problem...and that's a problem.  No one wants to look inwards, no one wants to self reflect on their views on life.  It's much easier to blame the other.

 

We've all had these arguments and debates in real life with people...for me, it's my mother.  She just lashes out constantly at everything the libs do, never bothers to reflect on what her side does.  She claims she was upset about the insurrection and that it was bad but certainly doesn't spend much time talking about it.  And when I pin her down with logic and truth, she just lashes out in another direction on a different conservative talking point.  Finally I realize that she has no interest in honest debate, no interest in introspection.   I'm assuming that's the case here.

Wasn't Slimebaugh fired from Monday Night Football, for making racist comments about Donovan McNabb?


ESPN, but yea. He said McNabb was overrated by the media bc they wanted a black QB to do well. It was cringey even 20 years ago.

I felt that way when I heard that Trump came down with COVID or a number of those in his orbit. I think it is hard to have sympathy for those who monetized harming others.

 

We actually cheered when Trump was diagnosed.

I immediately felt conflicted about that. It disturbed me. However, it felt so kharmically just. That the man encouraging such dangerous behavior and refusing to help would succumb. I hoped it would open his eyes. 
 

it didn’t.

I wanted him to get better so he could stand trial for his crimes.  And he did.  And he will.

He may stand trial but I don’t see a conviction. Too many Trumpsters in any jury; even in New York.

Great comment in totality but this is really the bottom line. Trump supporters are so blinded by their hate and dug into their beliefs regardless of facts, there can be no honest debate. I have the same issue when I try to engage people. I play a lot of golf in a golfing community (think a bastion of white privilege). And when I try to actually have a conversation and share thoughts they are just not interested. They want to get their point across and then ignore anything I have to say. I moved here about 4 months ago to see if it's a place I could retire. The answer is no. I will be moving again in August. Fortunately I am only renting so I can do what I want - not an accident.

For everyone in this thread mocking this man’s death I hope you find it just as funny when your loved one is dying of cancer. 
 

It’s called karma and I believe in it. 

 

That's not how karma works.

 

Definition of karma

 

often capitalized : the force generated by a person's actions held in Hinduism and Buddhism to perpetuate transmigration and in its ethical consequences to determine the nature of the person's next existence

We have already established that every prediction you’ve ever made is wrong.

 I find this post of special interest.  We were all set to move to Maryville, TN in retirement in 4  years.  I figured I could handle the uber religiousness, and Trump was going to be gone by then anyway. But this summer their response to COVID really opened my eyes. Like you I had to decide if these are the people we want to spend the rest of our lives with.  The answer was the same as yours.

I play in a golf league and found out this morning that I'll again be joining a foursome 2/3 comprised of these folks once again.  2 late 40's white guys that feel its their duty to discuss 'current events' the entire 9 holes.  It's basically the Rush Limbaugh show between the two of them.  Rarely do I even feel its worth entering into any debate, because that's not what it is.  It's just two boomers stuck in their ways that aren't about to change their mind no matter what they are presented with.  I often wonder if they even realize just how miserable they sound, and if they realize that it's all because they choose to gulp this stuff down 24/7.  It's to the point, I'm thinking of foregoing playing this year, as it's the only avail spot for me.

I agree overall but we are really stretching boomers if they are in their late 40s. These are Gen Xers. I am on the very edge of the boomer group at age 60 - and that is new in the last 20 yrs as boomers used to end being born by 1958. Now it's 1964 (I was born in 1960).

 

We have enough ****heads in this group without you adding more...  🙂

My apologies.  I actually don't know how old they are, they could be older than late 40's - they just look, act, and talk like Boomers.

 

One of them is a 'Cowboys fan' who last year said, "ya know I really want to check out a Cowboys game to see how that new coach, <insert wrong name here>, is going to get them playing, but I just can't turn it on man".  if that's not boomer action, I don't know what is.

Easy now on the boomer hate!! 🙂   I am a boomer and despite some claims we are not the root of all evil here. There are plenty of **** heads in all the groups. In fact by the numbers there are 60% more people that are between ages 18 and 58 in the US than over 58. Things could change if people would just vote.
