Apparently, we conservatives are Beyond The Pale. Saith Jennifer Rubin:
There is no way to “understand” MAGA voters, nor is there is any possibility of reaching political agreement with them. They are beyond the bounds of rational political debate.
Hey, Jen: substitute “socialist voters” for “MAGA voters”, and you’ll have an idea of what we think of you lot. The only thing you need to understand about us is that we hate your putrid political philosophy and your criminal voting practices.
And then some other Lenin-lickspittle chimes in with:
There is no longer any reason to try to “understand” these people. Nor should there be any compunction about doing whatever we can to read them out of American politics…
…by any means available, you mean?
A huge difference is that our civil rights (1A, 2A, etc) don’t really cost them anything. I can celebrate my right to keep and bear arms without costing them a dime. (I know they’d argue otherwise.)
Whereas their “right” to free stuff (health care, college, welfare, Obamaphones, etc) costs me plenty.
They really don’t get it, do they?
I’ll spell it out – there’s more of us than them.
Last week I kept hearing about some shrew that has heart palpitations if when she sees flags, MAGA stuff. Fears for her life. https://trendingpolitics.com/meltdown-sunny-hostin-says-american-flags-alongside-trump-flags-is-symbol-of-white-supremacy-watch/
Too bad, sunshine, when you leave your urban cocoon, this is what America is. Those people are the outliers.
But they control the government.
““This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official said.”
More of us isn’t all that meaningful as long as we keep choosing hacks handle the reins. Even if our side takes one or both congressional chambers next year, it’ll be same old same old if we keep sending the Liz Cheneys/Paul Ryans/Mitch McConnells for their age-old DC circle jerk.
Perhaps we need a Demonstration Project, such as Seattle, or Portland.
Ms. Rubin, just like the vast majority of her fellow lefties, has it bass ackwards. They are the ones who will not engage in any kind of rational debate about anything. As someone said “Conservatives consider the facts and come to conclusions. Progressives have conclusions and try to sell them as facts.” When you do that, you have no science or history to back you up and you can only shout down your opponent, or refuse to debate because you can’t understand them.
Your terms are acceptable.
I’m getting a little long in the tooth carrying a rifle to make a living again, so please ‘bring it’ sooner rather than later missy.😆
Love your nic. The 1st film adaptation is one of the worst movies ever made. The 2nd didn’t suck quite as hard. Here’s hoping the upward trend continues.
Somebody needs to take these nitwits aside and point out to them that the MAGA voters have a lot of privately held guns (that they practice with, for fun), whereas THEY have only the armed minions of the State…who they treat like sh*t.
NOT a good balance of forces, for them.
The very well-documented history of the rise of the Nazi party in Germany lies less than 100 years behind us. Doesn’t anyone read anymore!
Are you kidding? They look at Germany 1930-45 as a lesson plan, not a warning. Same with 1917 Russia.
Never forget that those at the top of the Left (and some of the rank and file to boot) are avowed Marxists, who believe the only path to Utopia on Earth lies through the complete and utter destruction of Society That Is and Was. Lenin found that simple economic destruction was not sufficient to change the nature of humans into good little cogs. Mao found that having a history as a people got in his way.
William Ayers and his cotierie had frank discussions of how many people they would have to liquidate to achieve their paradise.
The Marxist Left is hell-bent on proving their god, and anyone and everything that stands in their way is something or someone to be destroyed utterly.
They never have been happy they lost the last civil war. This time they hope to be the north and I don’t think they will win this time either.
To the Marxist, both the North and the South in the ACW are the enemies, for both fought for something larger than themselves. The North’s desire for national unity and human rights offends them. The South’s desire for self-direction and autonomy disgusts them.
Had the Left their way to do ACW all over again, they would burn down both sides.
Rubin and the rest of her tribe have been working toward this moment for more than a century but it isn’t going to go quite the way they think.
I’m sad to see this happen. The proper answer to her is, “They are your fellow Americans.”
And if you want a real RCOB read this:
Nah. I understand them just fine. I know exactly where many of them come from.
Greed, envy, jealousy, fear… they are emotionally driven, insecure people. The whole covid mask divide showed us that as starkly as could be.
I just disagree with their premises rationally. Factually. Scientifically.
They’ll never understand us because they have forsworn logic, facts, and objective truth.
