Crazy Stuff Trump Supporters Say

Recommended Posts

BigRedBuster    8,064

OK...this is not a thread about crazy things TRUMP says.  It's a thread about what his followers say.

 

Here are a few examples that I have heard just in the last few weeks.

 

"What has he lied about, I can't think of anything".

 

"He wasn't my first choice, but now that he is in office, I'm glad we have him.  I really don't care if what he says is correct or lies or not, I'm glad he says the first thing that comes to his mind.  We need more of that in politics."

 

"Obama never called any military families"

 

"Everyone knows everyone is against the Nazis.  That's why Trump never tweets about them.  The real problem is the players taking a knee during the anthem"

Holy balls!! I'm glad I don't know many Trump supporters in real life. I think all the people I know that voted for him have turned against him now.

That one honestly left me so dumbfounded that I was speechless.

"All the people he hires are wealthy, and they don't need our money so they'll do what's right."

"Thank god he tweets so we know what is happening, not what is just force fed to us by the MSM."

Had Trump not been elected, SNL, like the View, would have zero material. It would simply be "Hillary is President so there is nothing to discuss. She is perfect."

1. He's better than Hillary.

2. He's God's man for this time.    TG's Comment to this: Note as a supporter of republican presidents in the pass - The repub was always God's man while the dem wasn't so much.  I think it is presumptuous to speak on behalf of God.  Why is he's God's man?? -Is it only because he 'says' he will support pro life issues.  I'm glad he has given lip service to pro life issues after being pro choice a few years ago (convert for expediency sake?)  But what if he neglects doing the Micah 8:6 things:  He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? (1)To act justly and (2)to love mercy and (3)to walk humbly with your God.

These are 3 signs of being "God's Man".   How does Trump measure up?

3. The USA was going to become a 2nd rate country without Trump.    (a number of variations to this. Basically we needed a savior at this time and Trump was it.)

4. Yes, but he is less corrupt than Hillary.  (as though there is a threshold of corruption that is acceptable:facepalm:)

I hear 1 and 4 a lot from a family member that voted Trump.   I think a lot of that opinion ties into the sexism topic for the other thread.

Here is one that I posted on the Russian investigation thread:

I hear Trump supporters say that the special counsel was selected not because there was a crime that needed to be investigated but in order to find a crime (make one up if possible and string together enough 'evidence' to make it stick) to prosecute.  TG: However that doesn't meet the smell, taste, or eye test.  The recent actions by the admin and their supporters are proving that there is more than smoke here and that Mueller is getting close to the fire.

When I criticize Trump on Facebook, there's invariably a supporter who promises to pray for me. 

 

According to some, he is literally a gift from God.

Wow.  Guess you have a different FB policy than I.  Those folks all got dropped or blocked right after election day.

I've never blocked anyone. I'll either wear them down or ignore them. And I'll never stop anyone from praying for me. Can't hurt.

 

My FB group also has a lot of scathingly good writers of a liberal bent who do their homework, so I have fewer and fewer rightwing cranks willing to engage. I'm usually commenting in someone else's post, where most of the free-for-alls take place. 

 

And truth is.....some of those cranks are my oldest and dearest friends. People who've had my back forever. They are good people who walk the walk in their daily lives, and exhibit compassion and generosity to others. And then when the discussion turns to politics, they repeat the most virulent rightwing talking points and support the divisive politicians who betray pretty much everything they claim is in their hearts.  

 

It's the damnedest thing I've had to deal with in my life. Up is down and dogs & cats are sleeping together.

Tramp supporters represent Whitey`s Last Stand.  That is, the privelege that the American White working male enjoyed in the industrial hey day has been decimated and Whitey is left "competing" with 3rd World labor-of color.  The capitalist class that once needed Him screwed Him "bigly" as they moved all industry overseas.

 

Tramp based his entire campaign bulls#!tting the White male into believing that he will bring it all back and of course thats nvr going to happen:  why pay the American White male 20 bucks/hr when you can pay a Bangladeshi 26 cents/hr?

 

The capitalist class has also screwed Whitey at home, bringing in similar cheap labor.  And to top it all off, Whitey is so stupid that he still sings the praises of the capitalist bosses that have f`d him-and capitalism itself.  Only the White American male does this as in the rest of the world workers actually fight back AGAINST the capitalists. 

 

Well, back in the early 20th Century, the American worker actually did fight, but He was mainly of Eastern Euro descent then and He called himself a "Socialist" or "Communist" and voted for guys like Eugene Debs, not "yuge" bulls#!tting idiots like Tramp.

 

And the current rise of American fascism/Nazism is quite predictable as history tells us fascism always comes to the fore when capitalism is at its least stable point.  But capitalism and its associated White Supremacy are on the way out globally.  The older White American male worker also doesnt realize this obvious fact.  But said worker will soon die off from the planet and His flailing and anacronistic opinions and misguided influence will no longer be part of the conversation-thankfully.

I thought "Big Red Commie" was just having a bit of irreverent fun with their screen name and avatar, but he or she really talks the talk!

 

That might be the first Eugene Debs reference I've seen on Huskerboard.

This is likely an elaborate troll. He's creating an unhinged caricature of the far left to make some pseudo-Socratic method point about how much the left hates the white man. The above post slips a little too far out of character and into parody. And while he usually hits a number of the right notes, so that you'd almost believe he was actually just a virulently anti-imperialist, anti-war guy who actually considers the US a brutal fascist enterprise, the Marx-Lenin-Maoism stuff is laying it on a bit thick. Then again, who knows.

Probably a sock of someone who feels he was booted out of here for his right-wing views, come think of it. Y'know, I'm not mod anymore, I can't ban you, guy. You should probably just come out with it :D

Large sections of the American population have at least read Zinn`s(RIP)"Peoples History of the Unites States", even many non-Southern high schoolers.

 

Mao is my biggest hero, though. Guevara a close 2nd.

 

Maybe "too groovy" for HB, I presume.

Mao killed more of his own people than any other dictator.  no one else came even close.   stalin is number 2 on the list.  hitler comes in at 3rd.

I've read Howard Zinn and consumed plenty of non-mainstream history.

 

There are so many reasons not to admire Mao Zedong, it's not even funny.

A guy who actually admires Mao for whatever reason isn't just here to make some ironic "liberals think US is a fascist imperialist war state" or "liberals blame white men for everything" fantasy point come to life. Try harder, mate.

There are only 5,000 registered members of the Communist Party USA. They have a long, interesting history in U.S. politics, but currently occupy a fringe so tiny that's it's hardly worth discussing.

 

Unless, you know, Barack Obama is President, executing his secret Communist agenda.

Yeah, It' s really groovy to idolize dictators who torture and murder their own people.

This seems like the thread for this, but it's absolutely serious. Read this: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/08/donald-trump-johnstown-pennsylvania-supporters-215800

 



All this, perhaps, is not so surprising, considering polling continues to show that—in spite of unprecedented unpopularity—nearly all people who voted for Trump would do it again. [...] Johnstown voters do not intend to hold the president accountable for the nonnegotiable pledges he made to them. It’s not that the people who made Trump president have generously moved the goalposts for him. It’s that they have eliminated the goalposts altogether.

 

This reality ought to get the attention of anyone who thinks they will win in 2018 or 2020 by running against Trump’s record. His supporters here, it turns out, are energized by his bombast and his animus more than any actual accomplishments. For them, it’s evidently not what he’s doing so much as it is the people he’s fighting. Trump is simply and unceasingly angry on their behalf, battling the people who vex them the worst [...] And they love him for this.

 

Also, it underscores a larger point: yes, sure, Trump is a loon and so are many of his supporters. There's precious little that is zany or slapstick about this. And there is no sane, good way forward that is built around accommodating, encouraging, or catering to these people. Also, this point was emphasized twice here:

 

More than anything, what seemed to upset the people I spoke with was the National Football League players who have knelt during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

 

These are not isolated issues. If nothing else, scroll down and read the last few paragraphs.

Man. That racist digression at the end... just WOW.

 

The thing that is striking to me is that I didn't understand how powerful the pull of white identity politics is for some of these people. It's clear a lot of these folks are becoming bolder about being explicitly proud of their race and the cultural identity that goes along with it... Trump became an answer to their prayers. When we talk abut the people who are "left behind," it's usually in terms of economic situation, rarely culturally. But these folks are left WAY behind, and it seems it's mostly a cultural issue rather than an economic one.

 

The key takeaway for me: The folks in this story (and likely lots and lots of other Trump voters nationwide) are more concerned with him getting revenge on their part than anything. His policies and his conduct in office become ancillary afterthoughts. They love Trump because he attacks liberals and anyone else they see as the boogeyman.

This is how fascism goes to work.

 

I've been rolling my eyes for years when the Left misuses "fascism" as hyperbole, not unlike the Right painting Obama as a communist.

 

But....uhm....this is fascism.

 

Never thought I'd see it in my life.

How many of the #NeverTrumpers here would vote Hillary over Trump tomorrow, given the opportunity to redo the election?
