linw: I seriously don't know who to hate most, Trump or Putin. I fear for democracy.

 

To be honest, I'm beginning to wonder if the human race can handle modern democracy. It's increasingly evident that there's too much freedom in Western society.

The Trump Tribe of Texas participates in a prayer at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas on Aug. 4.

 

The Washington Post - Trump’s personality cult and the erosion of U.S. democracy

 

today

 


If it wasn’t certain before, it’s crystal clear now. Former president Donald Trump has a viselike grip over the Republican Party. 

 

No allegation of impropriety or illegality, no concern over stoking extremism and violence, no documented trammeling of the rule of law can cut away at his seeming dominance over the American right.

 

 

A picture speaks a thousand words.

I read a long time ago the following:

 

  • If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God, and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul.

@freitasm made an exception for this thread, but the time to ask that question is probably before you post something.

I was aware of the exception for this thread, and posted it because of the issue with last year's CPAC conference and the imagery they used there.

Another MAGA-clown (I only heard about this guy this week) is arrested in Romania for human trafficking. This guy seems like a real piece of work - nasty misogynist. I don't know why any woman would want to be near him, let alone with him...

https://thespinoff.co.nz/society/20-08-2022/andrew-tate-is-a-virus-in-our-schools <<< even worse his crap is infiltrating our schools. Parents be alert!

 

For the record, I find his views and attitudes towards women to absolutely abhorrent, and there is no way in hell I would be raising my boys to treat women the same way this POS does.

WOF - Teachers have got to inform all parents about this guy and parents and teachers have got to have an informed discussion with their children.

 

This type of rhetoric harks back to the 1930's & 1940's, where, at that time, this misogyny was across the world in the form of fascism. I am presuming this 'low life' also has views on racism, gender and religion.

My question would be why do so many people young and old respond to this shit? Why does it not just evoke instant revulsion? Why does anyone even want to go down that path? What is it that appeals to people? Being feared is no substitute for being loved.
