Leftist hate

Many Hillary Clinton voters have ceased communicating with friends, and even family members, who voted for Donald Trump. It is so common that The New York Times published a front-page article on the subject headlined, “Political Divide Splits Relationships — and Thanksgiving, Too.”

The article begins with three stories:

“Matthew Horn, a software engineer from Boulder, Colo., canceled Christmas plans with his family in Texas. Nancy Sundin, a social worker in Spokane, Wash., has called off Thanksgiving with her mother and brother. Ruth Dorancy, a software designer in Chicago, decided to move her wedding so that her fiance’s grandmother and aunt, strong Trump supporters from Florida, could not attend.”

The Times acknowledges that this phenomenon is one-sided, saying, “Democrats have dug in their heels, and in some cases are refusing to sit across the table from relatives who voted for President-elect Donald J. Trump.”

A number of people who voted for Trump called my show to tell me that their daughters had informed them that they would no longer allow their parents to see their grandchildren. And one man sent me an email reporting that his brother-in-law’s mother told him that she “no longer had a son.”

All of this raises an obvious question: Why is this phenomenon of cutting off contact with friends and relatives so one-sided? Why don’t we hear about conservatives shunning friends and relatives who supported Hillary Clinton? After all, almost every conservative considered Clinton to be ethically and morally challenged. And most believed that another four years of left-wing rule would complete what Barack Obama promised he would do in 2008 if he were elected president — “fundamentally (transform) the United States of America.”

In other words, conservatives were not one whit less fearful of Clinton and the Democrats than Democrats were of Trump and Republicans.

Yet virtually no conservatives cut off contact with friends, let alone parents, who supported Clinton.

His #3 - most left wing Positions are Emotion Based - has been a sore point between me and my liberal friends for years. They want to do what "feels" right and good - but only if it's keeping with the current liberal agenda! Telling addicts it's not their fault, demanding that people who earn support people who don't, and coddling those who spend their lives making poor decisions all make them feel "good" about themselves. Being "mean" to addicts, the poor, and the "downtrodden" by providing incentives to shape up, get a job, and live within their means is unacceptable.

Among Liberals, nonsense abounds and foolishness prevails.
They were so in love with the idea of a woman being President that they were willing to elect a liar and crook who was not competent.

Somebody said, "they were willing to elect a liar and crook who was not competent."

You are talking about Donald J(ackass) Trump, sunshine.

Anon 3:56 I remember the Clinton administration and one of it's hallmark features was to claim incompetence whenever they had a problem they couldn't blame on the Bush administration.

I saw the lack of accomplishments by Senator Clinton and the complete mess she made of foreign relations.

She couldn't even keep proper security on her campaign emails AFTER she was already in deep trouble over emails.

Compare that to Trump who has largely been successful in the vast majority of his businesses.

You claim Trump is incompetent and Hillary is competent but the evidence shows you wrong.

This is another reminder that while progressives claim to embrace all views they in reality do not.

On another note the liberal troll who occasionally pops up in these comments was at times amusing but has become so predictable that they are terminally boring and not worth responding to.

Some people seem to think that posting insults is somehow engaging in discussion.

Anon 6:26 - On average one in three new companies are successful. Donald Trump has run more than five hundred companies, for only four of them to go under is actually exceptional.

You also talk about "stiffing" subcontractors but fail to ask the question why? How many of those subcontractors failed to live up to the job they were supposed to perform? Do you know the answer to that question? Do you not understand that the subcontractor has to meet requirements in order to get paid?

I am not a moron, you have failed to examine the lame-assed talking points the DNC was passing out.

Like all of the bird brains.

"You also talk about "stiffing" subcontractors but fail to ask the question why?"

The anecdotal evidence that abounds is the why.

See this article.

To be fair, in the article Trump says: "“Let’s say that they do a job that’s not good, or a job that they didn’t finish, or a job that was way late. I’ll deduct from their contract, absolutely,” Trump said. “That’s what the country should be doing.”"

There are many examples where this is not the case.

What's wrong with hate? It's just an emotion like love, fear or enjoyment.

Typical of Leftard Dummocrat supporters. They know they're trapped in a group that reacts disparagingly, if not violently to any opposition of their ideology.

Ideology is a religion.

Leftards that want to escape their Dummocratic religion know they'll be vilified and ostracised by their own group dare they utter anything sensible against its teachings.

Scientology anyone?

Mentally weak individuals can't escape, while their free-thinking counterparts have also seen what's wrong with the left but decide to act on it, at least now knowing full well the derision from their former group that awaits them.

They know their former ideologists want to see sense, and know they can, but are too weak willed to make their own decisions and stay put like the socialist, regressive retards they dismiss they are.

This is why we still have vehement AGW supporters, regardless the sheer amount of proven fraud and deception they know is there but choose to ignore.

We have young white boys in schools deliberately being indoctrinated and shamed into feeling they're monsters and criminals, by the left that have implemented curriculums to force them to admit they'll grow up to be violent spouse-bashers, paedophiles, sex maniacs and racists, unless they become Manginas.

Dare they do that to a black kid? No.

Dare (or can) anyone give an accurate description of their attacker if the attacker isn't white? How long before truthfully identifying a black criminal in a lineup results in a racial charge against the victim - if the victim's white?

F-you libtards. Your ideology will be crushed under its own weight of stupidity. You're all victims of your own self-hate.

Why are you so angry? Chill out my friend.

Anon 3:55 - you obviously didn't comprehend what I wrote. Read it again and then imagine yourself vilified by Libtards simply because you're not one of them and have your life destroyed.

In any case, I'm not as angry as the Libtards themselves. All they have is hollow reasoning that makes them so.
