Too lazy to create a new thread, after earlier (IIRC) pointing out this thread has expired?
Now let the Republican Party disperse and a new party emerge left of the Democrats, the way it is in normal countries.
The Republican Party will re-form around the actual conservatives. (You know, those who believe in our founding principles and understand their oath to preserve and protect our constitution...)
Did you notice, ersi, that the Dems opted for no witnesses for Trump's second impeachment trial? (Trump's lawyers threatened to put Nancy Perlosi under oath... )
"Drinking the Kool-Aid" is an expression used to refer to a person who believes in a possibly doomed or dangerous idea because of perceived potential high rewards.
Four months after Facebook suspended Trump's accounts for inciting violence that led to the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the company's quasi-independent oversight board upheld the bans. But it told Facebook to specify how long they would last, saying that its "indefinite" ban on the former president was unreasonable.[...]The decision only "kicks the can down the road," said Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, who said it highlighted the need for greater government oversight of social platforms.
What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.
Seems like you are not using the expression properly.
Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a pejorative term usually for criticism or negative reactions to former United States President Donald Trump that are perceived to be irrational, and have little regard towards Trump's actual policy positions, or actions undertaken by his administration. The term has mainly been used by Trump supporters to discredit criticism of his actions, as a way of reframing the discussion by suggesting that his opponents are incapable of accurately perceiving the world. Journalists have used the term to call for restraint when judging Trump's statements and actions. The term has also been used by political commentator John Avlon to describe Trump supporters who are unable to accept reality, such as Trump's defeat in the 2020 election.
Tell me there's some sort of respect for the constitution in this picture.
Tell me why you think those pictured are representative of the Republican Party... Your reason(s) should explain a lot.
Have you any idea how many Republicans there are? And how many were involved in the riotous antics of January 6h at the Capitol?
As Daniel Patrick Moynihan once famously said, "You're entitled to your opinions but you're not entitled to your own facts."
And how many were involved in the riotous antics of January 6h at the Capitol?
@jax: I presume when you spoke of "science denial" earlier you meant, primarily, the (perceived-to-be mostly Republican) Americans' opinions about AGW/climate change...When science becomes so politicized, and takes on the trappings of religious fervor -- complete with dogma and excommunication, it's not really possible to have rational discourse about it; not without "psychologizing"! (It is, however, very informative to "follow the money"!)Or did you mean something else?
The Republican party promotes climate science denial[emphasis added]
[...] as well as denial of other science.
Unlike denying evolution this actually matters, and has harmed the US and the world,
[...] but my interest here is what damage it has done to the brain of the Republican party.
You now have active QAnon proponents like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert in Congress, and except for a handful [of] Republicans nobody speaks up against lunacy that would make the Kubrick moon landing down-to-earth in comparison.
The Dems have members who think Apollo 11 landed on Mars (or don't know the difference between the moon and Mars) and one who worried that American troops on Guam might cause the island to capsize...
there is a difference between stupid and evil
Are the Marxist BLM founders evil? Is Critical Race Theory just dumb...? (Can we talk about such here -I mean, in this thread? Of course we can...
In what way has the U.S. or anyone else been harmed?
Look, dude, facts are not things that you can afford to disagree about.
as soon as you demonstrate that a discussion can be had with you
Quote from: ersi on 2021-05-08, 23:03:30Look, dude, facts are not things that you can afford to disagree about.When mere opinions are asserted as facts, of course we can "afford" to disagree about them!Fact 1: Trump was impeached for the "Trump attack against the Capitol".Fact 2: Trump was acquitted...
I won't credit such as "fact" simply because you believe it; nor because "Golly-fee, look at how many never-Trumpers believe!"
Yeah, this is what happens when you assert mere opinions as facts. Trump was acquitted based on opinion, and it was a sharply divided opinion. Maybe somebody will teach you some day what the difference is between fact and opinion, before it's too late.
