I voted for businessman Donald J. Trump in 2016.

I agree that in many ways he has acted like a jack*ss during the last four years.

I would consider voting for the Democratic candidate except that I have been offended by (a) the Dems' four years of hyperbolic hysteria, (b) the impeachment, (c) the lies of the media, (d) the craziness of Hollywood "celebrities," (e) the BLM Insurrection, and (f) the Dem presidential choice of an obviously mentally and physically frail elderly gentleman. (I recently saw an old clip of Mr. Biden speaking as Vice President. His current deterioration is obvious.)

So I shall go down with the ship and vote for President Trump. Bless his little heart!
Don't worry, the wackos won't win this time. There are still too many of us real Americans left.

i'm voting against the fascist & straight (D) down ticket this time around.
Fascism is a lefty organization started by the national socialists in Italy. So you are voting against the D??
LOL!!! ^^^ what pablum ^^^

donny has fulfilled all 14 tenets of fascism.


Political scientist Dr. Lawrence Britt recently wrote an article about fascism ("Fascism Anyone?," Free Inquiry, Spring 2003, page 20). Studying the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile), Dr. Britt found they all had 14 elements in common. He calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism. The excerpt is in accordance with the magazine's policy.


The 14 characteristics are:


  1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
    Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

  2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
    Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

  3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
    The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

  4. Supremacy of the Military
    Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

  5. Rampant Sexism
    The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy.

  6. Controlled Mass Media
    Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

  7. Obsession with National Security
    Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

  8. Religion and Government are Intertwined
    Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

  9. Corporate Power is Protected
    The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

  10. Labor Power is Suppressed
    Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed .

  11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
    Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.

  12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment
    Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

  13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
    Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

  14. Fraudulent Elections
    Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Looks like the DNC platform to me.
you funny.

delusional.... but funny.
Oddball doesn't accept the inherent truth of leftism like you do where good = Democrat and bad = Republican. It's easy to see the DNC party in this when you remove that constraint
oddball = alt right = PEPE! = nutjob.
playtime = gullible sap triggered by a cartoon = unhinged moonbat who needs meds.

You're a whack job. Oddball is none of those.

Ironically you demonstrated my point that you're a simpleton who thinks Democrat is good, any good word applies to Democrats. Republican (by which you think means anyone who's not a Democrat) is bad. Any bad word applies.

You just did exactly that.

Did you know that words have meanings beyond "good" and "bad?" Sorry to blow your mind so early on a Friday morning ...
Remember you're dealing with someone who, by definition, is completely lacking in self-awareness and introspection.

And you go way over there with your racist shit about PEPE.

And you obviously don't know what alt-right means since you're calling oddball alt right. That frankly is to the point of retard
i know enough - i will say using pepe as an avatar doesn't make sense if one isn't at least alt right adjacent ... much like assholes who have or defend the CONfed flag & monuments in their avatars - or defends donny on any level - aren't racist on some level themselves.

Totally wrong. Democrats have this thing where you keep calling 70 different things racists which you use to cancel them. I totally think people should defy your racist tactics. Race whoring is racism. You're exploiting blacks for your own selfish political gain at the expense of the people you're exploiting.

As long as Democrats are doing that, you need to be defeated

    Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

  14. Fraudulent Elections
    Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Looks like the DNC platform to me.
you funny.

delusional.... but funny.
Oddball doesn't accept the inherent truth of leftism like you do where good = Democrat and bad = Republican. It's easy to see the DNC party in this when you remove that constraint
oddball = alt right = PEPE! = nutjob.
You're a whack job. Oddball is none of those.

Ironically you demonstrated my point that you're a simpleton who thinks Democrat is good, any good word applies to Democrats. Republican (by which you think means anyone who's not a Democrat) is bad. Any bad word applies.

You just did exactly that.

Did you know that words have meanings beyond "good" and "bad?" Sorry to blow your mind so early on a Friday morning ...
Remember you're dealing with someone who, by definition, is completely lacking in self-awareness and introspection.
^^^ best ironic post today ^^^
So you drew a blank, huh?
