    Every day, Democrat leaders and their media arms made half the country believe there was turmoil. The other half had quite a lot of fun while cheering on the president's many accomplishments. Sorry for the folks who listened to the "be angry" rhetorical tactics. It was definitely a brilliant display of political performance art.

    Trump is a miserable millionaire--a man who has everything but is incapable of being happy with anything. As President, Trump achieved nothing. But he didn't become President to do that. The only goal he has ever had, as candidate or as President, has been to kill everything Obama achieved as President. That's because he can't abide seeing a black man succeed where he so obviously can't. Trump is a sick man. Trump is a sickening human being. Consider what supporting him says about anyone's ability to discern quality in others.

    Well, I disagree with your opinion and don't respect it, but I certainly will defend your right to state your biased and narrow political views just like anyone else.

    I can not speak for Conservatives.

    I dislike Leftist Censorship and gender politics.

    I agree with the Left on issues like gun control and Welfare State.

    Thank you. Fortunately some people still value Freedom.

    I did not interject in your conversation. Maybe you have me confused with another poster?

    Both sides like censorship, they just go about it differently. What gender politics are you referring to?

    Have you by chance looked at Glenn Greenwald's Twitter feed? He is an "equal-opportunity" critic of both Trump and Obama, and lately, an unmasker of how the liberal media totally broke down over the last four years with their BS rhetoric.

    He's a progressive, so I wouldn't agree with him much on "solutions", but I totally agree with much of what he's been writing lately about what is "broken" in today's politics.

    Regardless of "left", "right" or what I consider "mixed" political ideologies, there is much Americans can agree on.

    1) Viewing all men as oppressors.
    2) Censoring facts about discrimination men face, such as a) discrimination in divorce b) male victims of DV being treated as aggressors c) Presumption of Guilt for men accused of sexual harassment

    I don’t believe “Viewing all men as oppressors” is as popular of a narrative on the left as you believe it is — while I am sure it exists it would be in the minority. As for censorship of discrimination that men face, I don’t know if it is really censorship as it is under reporting by the victims. I will certainly agree that men are often seen as the guilty party but that comes down to crime statistics. Men do absolutely get the short end of the stick in child custody and divorce proceedings but that is slowing changing.

    Just reading that Dr. Rachel Levine is on Biden's short list to be Surgeon General. Whoever is pulling Biden's puppet strings is definitely pulling hard left with the gender politics.

    Women's Rights groups have a major problem with the new "gender politics" of trans-activism. They're worried that it will soon be a "hate crime" to say, "Women are women."

    Competing tribes is a major problem with identity politics for obvious reasons.

    Dr. Levine is currently Pennsylvania's Secretary of Health.

    I am sorry -- I am not familiar with Transgender issues. This is a high-conflict topic where I would not take sides.

    It is high conflict. That's the problem with the DNC strategy of splitting human beings into multiple "clumps" of special-interest identity groups. Pay too much attention to one "clump" and the other "clumps" feel underappreciated and envious. Let's just say that dividing people into groups by skin colors, sexes, genders, citizenship status, etc. is very divisive. lol

    The not funny part is that this doctor is one who advocates medically transitioning children to the opposite sex at a young age. The Biden administration is going to be so "open minded" that their brains fall out.

    This is definitely going to be an "Intersectional Identity Politics" (pandering) administration.

    You know Joe Biden didn't personally Tweet this.

    Believe me, as a liberal Democrat, I've experienced precisely that same behavior in reverse--from Republicans. But I'm mature enough & smart enough to realize that behavior isn't from ALL Republicans, but a few. The same is true for you, if you're capable of seeing the truth. I wish you well in that effort. :):democrat:

    This whole post was an exercise in unqualified hatred & misinformation. Nothing in it was honest or truthful. I am saddened to see such crap coming from another forum member. :( I inserted comments responding to the original post. They are where you see the 3 asterisks & shown in italics.

    So to you, America is a place where there's no room for anyone who thinks differently than you? For you, conformity is a requirement? And that conformity must be to your world view? And you won't compromise with anyone else who regards themselves as an American just as honestly as you, if they dare value aspects of our country or culture that you don't? That's quite an America you've got in your head. But not one I want to be part of. :(

    I don't ask anyone to conform, it's a free country. I'm free to believe anyone who votes left is an enemy to the American way of life. Better stock up on TP before Biden locks us down...it'll work....this time.

    I’m sorry. You don’t seem to understand the statistical differences in Left vs Right influence. The sheer volume of leftists purposely pissing off the right dwarfs the referee. It’s not even comparable.

    The MSM is majority Left. Tech also leans left. Hollywood is left. Education leans left. There is no Lois mouthed.

    And feelings don’t matter. The left light feel socialism is good. But they’re ignorant. I know people who flee from socialist countries and they are far happier here. The
    That’s a maaaan baby!!!

    What the left does and advocates — their existence — pisses off the right. The right pisses off the left by denying blue states aid, mocking liberals, refusing to negotiate in good faith, being hypocritical and opposing every plan regardless of if the right previously advocated for it.

    I agree, they are not comparable

    What is the largest broadcast corporation?
    The largest news organization?
    Both are rightwing.
    By size and reach the MSM is majority right.

    Tech equates to education and education leans left because of critical thinking ability.

    The people that scream socialism typically have no idea the meaning of that economic principle and very few people in the US want socialism.
