The mystery behind a confusing phone call Donald Trump claims he had with "China" has been disclosed: The president made it up to try to boost the market.
His own aides acknowledged this.

But no, Trump supporters, please feel free to keep defending this psychotic nutjob and making yourselves look even dumber than usual.

They call him a leftist, so he must be important and a representative voice for anyone who is liberal.

I mean, that’s just undeniable.

Just as undeniable as AOC being fascist.

Boom.

He didn’t do anything illegal.

Everyone needs to put this sensational story to bed. The only story here might be that he’s an immature high school boy who wants to show off America’s dick. What’s new?

Also pls everyone stop saying “leftist.” It’s a dumb word manufactured by the right to make the left sound extreme.

He can declassify anything he wants, doesn’t make it any less fucking dumb.

But it doesn’t make it illegal and it shouldn’t be worded as though the president “posted pictures of classified material.” That didn’t happen. It’s perhaps an insult to the apparatus who surrounds him to think that he’s capable of even doing such a thing.

No prob.

The Senator Collins 'is the worst kind of person' thing..... Silly, but no big deal. It's the internet, right?

Your 'Hitler's children' bit, and the same kinda Nazi trash offered by a few of the local heavies here, it digs a little deeper. I suppose it fits Fym nowadays.

Wish yolland was still around.

So entertaining. Same can be be said of what does NPR think of it? What does Rachel Maddow think of it? What does CNN think of it?

Or, you could address the actual topic.

Boom.
Anyone who is in a position of leadership, and wants to force their views on others , and take rights away is a fascist.

AOC, and unfortunately many others (including people on this forum) want to restrict freedom of speech (fascism) , support violence in response to views (real or imagined) that they don’t like, force people into giving up their religious freedoms and calling it hate , is fascism. Faking hate crimes, and fake photo ops to push leftist propaganda is fascism.

AOC is just the latest leftist tool being used and drooled over by the left. The fact that you guys are more obsessed with what I say, versus deciding which millionaire hypocrite you guys will prop up (or the DNC rigs the primary for) between Biden , Warren, or Sanders , is very telling.

And if you disagree, a period doesn’t help. She is the worst kind of person. So is Joe Manchin. They’re fake ass pandering politicians who pretend to be in the middle but are just uniquely putting on that coat because their constituency is split. Ironically, it’s folks like AOC and Ted Cruz who are actually reaching across the isle without giving up their beliefs. They’re not the worst kind of people.

On your second point, it’s he freaking internet. You clearly remember when I said “Hitler’s children” better than I do... almost certainly using language from Bono’s Goes to Bitburg, if I said it. Though maybe you’re actually referring to when I said something about being “right out of a playbook from the Third Reich.” Donald Trump isn’t a nazi, doesn’t want to murder people, isn’t consciously aware of his racism yada yada (genuinely I don’t think the guy is racist but I do think he legitimately hates poor people). But if you think Donald Trump doesn’t exhibit strong-man characteristics inspired by Hitler, I don’t know... you’re wrong. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.bus...his-bed-2015-8

The stuff was reported on well before Trump’s rise in politics. Stuff he was doing was apparent well before he was a serious politician. Heck, before he was a republican. Reading up on Hitler doesn’t make you a nazi, and there’s nothing wrong with studying someone like that. But put two and two together, it’s literal. So, when I said “right out of a playbook from the third Reich,” yes this is the internet and no I don’t have to be so formal. If you don’t agree with what I’m saying, you can inquire and I will explain. Maybe we will get argumentative, but that’s okay, it’s not always a fight. I’m happy to mock the president for using leadership tactics that are characteristics of awful people, because guess what? He’s an awful person. No, he’s not fucking Adolf Hitler. No, he hasn’t started a war. He doesn’t have the blood of hundreds of thousands of people on his hands. But he does rely on some oppressive shit to rally his base, and it is causing domestic social issues to be resurrected that we were doing so well on in the 90s and 2000s. Ask yourself, regarding the president’s platform of illegal immigration, who is responsible for polarizing the left? Bush, who removed more people than anyone prior and worked with democrats to put up a fence? Obama, who remover even more people than Bush (most of which were criminals)? Or Donald Trump, who made it personal? Think about it.

Anyways, I’m ranting right now. If you can’t inquire what someone means or engage in a true discussion, what’s the point? Stop ranting about how people here are or whatever. Do you know how much shit I had to take from everyone in the NBA thread for years? Heck even here in the political threads for not voting for Obama in 2012, for saying the Muslim community lacked a voice of its own, yada yada yada. Defend yourself. If you’re not a bad person people will know when you explain what you mean or how you feel about a topic.

How? Actual leftists use the term to refer to themselves quite commonly and without issue.

Racist
Misogynist
Supremacist
Sexist
Hedonist
Fascist
Communist (somewhat)
Capitalist (somewhat)
Socialist (somewhat)

All of these terms are pejoratives used from the right or left to attack the other.

Leftist
Rightist?

Nobody says rightist. The term is “ist” is now a freaking pejorative. In the political realm, -ist words are almost exclusively used as pejoratives, except for those who try to claim or reclaim the words. And some of them aren’t reclaimable.

I’m by no means suggesting that the prefix -ist is negative, but it’s definitely so in the political realm. I never see people on the left referring to themselves as “leftist.” It’s liberal or progressive. The folks on the right are the near exclusive users of the term “leftist,” and it sounds stupid. An -ist would imply an -ism is a thing. “Leftism” might have a definition but it means a whole lot of nothing, as though the left is one entity of homogenous beliefs. And it doesn’t jive well at all with the use of the term “leftist,” which is typically used in an extreme sense.
