Where's the option for "don't support him but is a necessary evil to combat the even worse evil of SJWs, PC culture and globalism gone wild?"

You honestly think this is going to change anything?! If anything it’ll make things worse, it actually is already. So you honestly think racism, bigotry, straight out lies and ignorance (don’t forget bad behavior, bad education and sexism with clear hints of sexual harassment) are favorable to those points you mentioned?!

I'm usually not an advocate of "two wrongs make a right," but considering the post-modern far left has many of these qualities in spades (not saying the far right doesn't, they just don't dominate the media and have mainstream speech platforms like the far left does), then yeeah.. Sometimes the only way to get through to these people is a taste of their own medicine.

Look, obviously the Donald has a lot of flaws, but it's for this very reason I think many on the left need to ask themselves gee, maybe part of this is because of something WE'RE doing if a candidate this horrible actually managed to get elected? The silent majority is trying to tell them something, but most unfortunately won't listen. If we were working the context of 20 or even 10 years ago, I'd probably hate Trump a lot more, but as I said, he's something of an necessary correction from where I sit, at least as a temporary measure (obviously I don't think it'd be wise to have someone like him in office for too many years)..

Though I have to add I am curious as to where the racist stigma comes from.. I have to say I don't really see it. It's just one of these weird myths that people repeat enough that it comes to be seen as fact, but I just see little to no evidence for it, and have never really seen a good explanation for it. Like, how specifically is he racist? You could probably make the argument that he's somewhat xenophobic, and let's face it, and he's certainly something of a shit stirrer and macho egotist, but racist? I mean hasn't the guy gone on record denouncing extremist racist groups and has said things like "we all bleed the same color," and "we are Americans first and foremost," "all Americans no matter what color yada yada" etc.. What the hell do people want from the guy? Sure they're just words but at the same time people seem to hang on every little statement he makes that they DON'T like, soo..

Despite extremely low expectations Trump has somehow managed to fail a hundred times harder than I ever could've imagined. Which is quite impressive so that's something I suppose.



I definitely supported Trump and as I see the left get more and more extreme and turn to violence it only pushes me further into Trump's camp.

You do realize that 90% of the mainstream media is owned by people who make Trump look like a poor man?  Why on earth people believe anything that they say is beyond me.  Maybe if you disconnect for a while you might find that your reality isn't what you thought it was:

Owner of the Washington Post (net worth = 97.6 billion)

Owner of the New York Times (net worth = 75.5 billion)

Donald Trump net worth = 3.1 billion

I still support his foreign policy, immigration policy, economic policy and environmental policy. I used to think being a dick was just because he was on the campaign trail. He still takes the time to be a dick though even though he's one of the busiest people on the planet.

I guess he's really a dick. His policy though is great and I'm glad he's President. I'm Australian.

That's what gets me - the mainstream media is basically owned by a handful of major corporations who are quite clearly at odds with this guy (which is where most people get all their news and essentially where they learn what's what). In many ways the media just makes their case worse for me because I distrust them so much that I almost believe the OPPOSITE of what they say lol. I mean these guys obviously have financial interests first and foremost, they're not going to report the truth if it doesn't support their interests, either financial or otherwise. Never got why so many take their word as gospel. Again, not saying Trump doesn't have a myriad of flaws, but much of it is overblown sensationalism.

He's still a living pile of shit and anyone who supports him I still don't recognize as human beings but smaller turds. Anytime something stupid comes pouring out his cunt mouth I will call him a stupid cunt on twitter.

Yes and I will never defend them and that may be one key difference with islam.

The inquisition for example, you know about 500 years ago, the church tortured and burned a lot of people that did not want to convert to christianity and that cannot be forgotten or defended but the fact remains that I have not yet heard any christian say: Oh but the inquisition has NOTHING to do with christianity, cause that would be revisionism, exactly like some neo-nazis that say Hitler never hurt any Jews. No one in their right mind could tolerate someone defending nazism by saying that nazis never hurt any Jews, right?

But when it comes to islam, too often do I hear that islam has nothing to do with radical islam. Islam must be the cleanest most pure religion EVER cause whenever something goes wrong with those people, it has nothing to do with islam or muslims. Biggest cop-out I have ever heard.

Way to never take responsibility either in the muslim world and among those non-muslims in this forum (an not only here) who defend islam and can't stand to see it criticized as everything else can be.

Timothy Mcveigh was Christian. Your ignorance is astounding. Your posts in this thread are egregious. Your posts are racist, narrow-minded and should be against TOS. It's hate speech.  Call a public figure an asshole..fine but to group an entire race of people with such malice like you have, honestly should get you banned I hope it does.

Are you for real, granted people that agree with Trump are not a race but .... these two things bolded within a couple posts of each other ... how hypocritical can you get?

Now that is what I call, deflection.
