So do YOU believe the new QAnon claim that there will be a March 4 uprising? Do you support that?

What is the old saying about not truly being able to help someone until they learn to help themselves?

If this keeps up, and at this point, there is little, if any, indication that wiser, cooler, and smarter heads will prevail, the Republican Party will not last as a viable political party that people will trust to govern.

If someone would have released at statement a few years ago like the Oregon GOP just did, I would have believed it was a fabrication. But, as they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

The best that can be said about this (and it's not good, to be sure) is that it's some kind of shared delusion.

All I can say at this point is that these guys better snap out of it soon, or they're going to find themselves irrelevant.

Portman's retirement is a really bad sign.

I'm cool with Portman retiring, say hello to new senator Jim Jordan from OH.
Wonderful...Senator Pedo Enabler.

If you study history of the past fifty to sixty years, or, if you're just plain old, you will see, or have watched, as the GOP strategists spent those decades cultivating the very lunacy and madness your OP addresses.

It's doubtful the party's strategists planned for that lunacy and madness to reach the level it is today. But those many years and several generations later, the psychological effects of fearmongering and nurturing right-wing paranoia are tearing the Republican Party to shreds.

Six decades of constant manipulation cannot be reversed in days, weeks, or years. The bitter hatred developed in their voting base for everyone unlike themselves is a flaw that same manipulation makes invisible to its victims, in both themselves and others that hold the same beliefs.

Conservative talk radio is responsible for a lot of what we're now going through. I know what I'm talking about because I listened to conservative talk radio for over 20 years, although not so much since Trump took office.

Conservative talk radio was ALWAYS setting fires. They were constantly engaged in what I would term argumentative dissatisfaction, and those arguments almost always morphed into a sense of emotional outrage. These "arguments" were often based on manufactured or even phony issues and were usually directed at the opposition party (the Democrats). But, eventually, it was directed at Republicans too. When their efforts at undermining Republicans eventually led to getting rid of a House Majority Leader (Eric Cantor) through the primary process in 2014, and they later essentially forced a Republican Speaker of the House (John Boehner) out of office a year later, the RW radicals could simply see and feel their power growing.

What was happening seems obvious now based on the events of the last five years, but it wasn't at all clear what was happening back then. I say that without any real modesty at all since I could sense and feel the Republican surge coming in 1994 under Newt Gingrich. But this was different. Donald Trump essentially picked up the emotional mantle that Sarah Palin had dropped, in part, because she was not up to the task, and he ran with it, and his demagoguery was on full display at his rallies. I think that most people thought he couldn't win. I know that's what the polls indicated. But I knew he could win, and he did. And look what he's put this country through in the last four years. Regardless if someone supports his policy agenda, it's virtually impossible to defend what Trump has done to the collective us (you, me, and everyone else). I don't have a problem saying that because I would never offer my support to a president I voted for if and when he spent his time ripping at the fabric of this nation as if it was little more than an amusement to him.

At this point, I would have to say that I'm not really a betting man, but I think the future is set in one sense. As far as the GOP is concerned, it's old establishment conservatives versus Trumpists. I hate to say it, but I don't think that establishment conservatives are up to the challenge, and it doesn't have a damn thing to do with right versus wrong or good versus bad. It has to do with which side is the most ruthless, and it's probably not a good idea to bet against the side that's willing to storm the Capitol Building where the other side is deliberating, When push comes to shove, I believe the simple truth is this: Mainstream conservatives are afraid of the Trumpers, and the Trumpers are not afraid of mainstream conservatives.

But as Trump is fond of saying, we'll see what happens.
The RWNJs need a forceful leader, and, as the con man he is, he knew all the right buttons to push to get the RWNJs to defend AND justify every lie he told them.

There is no Republican, currently, with that ability. Romney refuses to appear as "Joe Six-pack" and be one of their own, and Ted Cruz was successful only because he was riding the a$$hole trump's coattails. The rest, possess even fewer leadership skills than Cruz.

The insurrectionists need a very effective cheerleader/god/con man. Reagan had two of those skills, but the a$$hole trump was the complete package the RWNJs had been waiting for.

The rage is an addition from the weasel-in-chief. The right-wingers' paranoia is the result of six decades of the GOP's Southern Strategy. The misinformation, that was a gift from King Ronny, with his deregulation of facts caused by the elimination of the Fairness Doctrine. Hello, FOX Noise, where the truth is a stranger locked outside.

Your post just proved it. Posting hate against the Squad verily personifies rage, hate, paranoia and misinformation. Added to which, these women now have round the close body guards and protection from Republicans.
But remember, he's a "patriot", so it's okay.

Pretty much all terrorists think of themselves as "patriots".

The squad seems to be a bunch of far left, anti-American, racist assholes.

Why should Americans NOT hate such people?
That's just sad.

One of those posts I wish I hadn't seen.

Hate comes so easy to people like you.

These people were pushed to this level over decades, by talk radio and then the internet, before Trump showed up.

He was the match that lit this. This ignorant, arrogant, buffoonish, caricature of a man was the spark that sent these people over the edge.

Now they're nothing more than domestic terrorists who have been conditioned to believe that they're patriots.

Psychotic. They are literally nuts. This is how Jews became so easy to murder by an entire nation in the 1940’s. Mass delusion. Mass obedience to lies. Wonder how this will play out?


Why did the Holocaust happen? – The Holocaust Explained: Designed for schools
In 1918, Germany lost the First World War. Many people within Germany, including Adolf Hitler, found this loss very difficult and humiliating to process. Instead, many looked for scapegoats to blame.

This led to the Stab-in-the-Back Myth. The Stab-in-the-Back Myth was the belief that the German Army did not lose the First World War on the battlefield, but was instead betrayed by communists, socialists and Jews on the home front. This myth fostered the growth of extreme antisemitism,nationalism and anticommunism.

Well, that was stupid of you and now you pay the price.

Nope. It was the constant hate and bile from assholes like you.


I used to be fine with people with different political beliefs. INdeed, I still am.


But, when they are assholes, or just assume the worst about me, because of THEIR programming, and treat me accordingly,

they can go fuck themselves.


Mac is upset cause I, and before that Trump said bas shit about the squad. Let's take a look at what the squad has said.




“We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice,” she said.


“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” she said. “And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews,


She later accused Jewish lawmakers of having an “allegiance to a foreign country” for supporting Israel. She also tweeted that U.S. support was “all about the Benjamins baby.” When asked what she meant, she responded “AIPAC!” referring to the prominent pro-Israel lobby.


Ms. Omar referred to the 9/11 terrorist attacks by saying “some people did something.”

They're victims, in a way. They've been taken in by this stuff.

But they're still responsible for what they do and say.

If someone would have released at statement a few years ago like the Oregon GOP just did, I would have believed it was a fabrication. But, as they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

The best that can be said about this (and it's not good, to be sure) is that it's some kind of shared delusion.

All I can say at this point is that these guys better snap out of it soon, or they're going to find themselves irrelevant.

Portman's retirement is a really bad sign.

The party is being overrun with rage, paranoia and misinformation.
The rage is an addition from the weasel-in-chief. The right-wingers' paranoia is the result of six decades of the GOP's Southern Strategy. The misinformation, that was a gift from King Ronny, with his deregulation of facts caused by the elimination of the Fairness Doctrine. Hello, FOX Noise, where the truth is a stranger locked outside.

The inherent racism is so obvious. You see, when minorities fail to succeed in the economy, it's clearly their own fault. When rural Whites are now failing to thrive in the economy, someone else is to blame. Along comes Trump who tells them that they've been forgotten. They just ate it up because it absolved them of any personal responsibility. The irony is this: Trump doesn't give a damn about poor rural White people at all. He never has. In his entire life, Trump has only cared about very wealthy Whites who live in big cities, virtually any and all celebrities, and beautiful women. That's it!
