Part of my post also mentioned that the 1933 equivalency to the stuff posted in this thread would have been put out by the Nazi party to aggrandize Adolf Hitler and his nationalistic message which included scapegoating minority cultures.  Perhaps the posters are conveniently ignorant of this equivalency as I doubt that their parents who may have fought against this right wing fascism in WWII would be very pleased.  And one should be very careful what one wishes for here.  History has shown that once a fascist dictatorship is in place it then costs millions of lives to depose it.

 

A few of the Trumpists on these threads are clearly not open to interaction. As Lawrence said, they merely want to make declarative statements, while deliberately trying to rub the noses of anyone differing with them the wrong way. And, for the most part, they never answer any questions that pose genuine concerns about Trump or his methods. They merely ignore them as they post another blaring headine either extolling him as President or burning (usually fake news distortions) his opponents. The underlining bigotry that exists in many of these postings is extremely disturbing. They don't try to hide it anymore, emboldened by Trump's election.

 

These posters go beyond mere partisanship. They are truly fanatics, with whom a reasonable interaction is virtually impossible. They're minds are made up and they are undoubtedly proud of that fact, too. The truth and the fact that they post fake articles is of virtually no concern to them. Just getting their political viewpoint across is all that matters to them.

 

And, yes, the fanaticism of these posters does make me think they would approve any clamp down on civil liberties that might be imposed upon America by Trump (as long as the clamp downs don't impact themselves, of course). In that respect, how different are they from Hitler's most stalwart and saluting of followers, many of them also fiercely hating anyone they perceived as "foreign" or not a member of their racial "club."

You don't actually think that they're interested in swaying anybody, do you? They just want to cheer on those who already think like they do while annoying or angering those that don't. This is not about winning hearts and minds, or finding common ground, or debating issues in any meaningful way whatsoever. It's cheerleading themselves and/or insulting/mocking everyone else.

I know that I've read multiple posts from Bogie, Tom, PoT, and DGF asking questions (in a civil polite manner) only to receive either no response or something along the lines of "Libtards have mental disorders" or "godless progressives hate the real America" or, my personal favorite, "go home to your mommy and cry little baby".

 

 

Hilarious. As a recipient of that witty response, I can honestly say it took me back to the days went I heard comments of that nature in a primary school school yard.

I now:  look at who provided the last reply,  if it isn't MR666 (since it will just be a link or some other uninteresting crap)  or that conservative tool,   I read it.  Once I'm done going to those threads I hit 'mark all threads as read'.

 

I can't agree about Mr. 6's posts, as he often links interesting articles from a variety of sources. I don't read them all, but I read more of them than from most other posters who frequently post links.

 

I, too, avoid some threads, like any that just post videos over and over again with little to no commentary. It would be nice if there was just a single thread dedicated to posting videos, especially since the majority of them come from the same YouTube content provider.

After a certain number of such responses, perhaps you'll understand why people begin returning in kind. I know from personal experience on here how this goes, since I often tried reaching out to people with whom I disagreed and the responses I got ranged from being told to never "Like" their posts again, to actual threats of physical violence, to one poster PM'ing others to tell them to put me ignore because I was "a creep" for disagreeing with them politically.

 

It baffled me for a while why these specific posters continued to post here, since they never seemed to have anything positive to say or made no attempts at conversations, only posting declarative statements and then leaving, and rarely if ever even talking about movies. But I've come to understand that there's a certain type of individual that apparently can't communicate in any other way.

 

Yes,  one conservative around is a complete and total tool.    No question about that.    Others like Nip do try to have an actual discussion but are often so misinformed (often intentionally) that it makes having a discussion difficult.

 

As for why they post 'here',   it appears you mean the overall forum,  but as it relates to this specific thread;  they created it and I assume they feel doing so is getting out the message they want to get out.  AND you have to admit that is working,   I.e. "libtards" come to this thread,  read the post and often reply.

 

So what I wonder more about is why do these 'libtards' do that?     Why take the tools' bait?    Resist the temptation to have to read everything posted around here.     Hey,  I don't always do this either but in the last 3 - 4 weeks I have changed how I use view threads in Chit-chat forum. 

 

I now:  look at who provided the last reply,  if it isn't MR666 (since it will just be a link or some other uninteresting crap)  or that conservative tool,   I read it.  Once I'm done going to those threads I hit 'mark all threads as read'.

While I see you're point to you really thing the Trump-haters around here are interested in finding common ground?

 

To me many of the posts from these folks fall into;   'It's cheerleading themselves and/or insulting/mocking everyone else'.

 

E.g. 99% of MR666 post.

Le Pen's National Front has Decades of History of Hatred of Jews, Hatred of Muslims, Hatred of blacks--there's no other way to put it.

Le Front National is simply a party of hate originally founded by Le Pen to compensate for France's losing the colony of Algeria-- a political party birthed in retro- racist colonialism.

Erdogan Says Dutch Will 'Pay the Price' for Insult-

The Netherlands had denied Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu landing rights to address crowds at a Rotterdam rally

 

"Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan drove his dispute with European nations to the hilt Sunday, claiming that "Nazism is alive in the West" after two of his ministers were prevented from campaigning in the Netherlands over the weekend....

 

....some European nations claim that Turkey under Erdogan is slowly slipping toward dictatorial means, especially since the aborted coup of last summer...

 

"Those who treat my foreign minister, my economy minister, our legislator friends in a shameless way, will pay the price. Those who unleash the dogs and their hatred will pay the price," he added...
