Jim Crow south?

Political correctness is traced back to Marxist Bolshevism to keep the working class in it's place from speaking out/rising up. You a fan of that type of thing?

The bookies have lost a huge amount of money and the countries that have paid in advance will be very disappointed. It is quite obvious that the rabid democrats are now also miserable bitter people. I think refunds will not be available. Read em and weep.

People are blaming Trump for everything while forgetting that he does not become President until January 20th.  Forget both Hilary's and Trump's rhetoric during the campaigning and give the guy a chance.  If things go belly-up in the first few months, then you can start to complain.

They gave a guy a chance back in Germany, how'd that turn out?

"Make america great again." I believe the correct phrase is Make America White Again.

 

All one has to do is look at his picks so far. If one cannot understand the meaning of the racist homophobic, bigoted, war mongering, anti-Constitution picks then, hmmm that person must believe the same way.

 

And yes, the government needs to fear us, but they have feared the left for many, many years. Anybody remember COINTELPRO? I damn well do, all to well.

 

"Remember Kent State (nevermind, before your time)."

I damn well do. I gave an anti-American War in Vietnam speech there not long after. Talked to many of the students involved, including Vietnam Vets that were on the receiving end of the murders. Those guardsmen should have been prosecuted for murder and whoever really gave the order to murder should have also, but I'm afraid that went just a bit too high up the ladder. Are you saying the military needs to start shooting us again? Sounds like it. USMC Sgt-Vietnam 1966/67-Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

If any of the cultural Marxists haven't noticed yet, Trump isn't in office and has not issued any orders executive or otherwise.  For those hoping for a revolution, I'm thinking that perhaps it's wise to be careful what you wish for.  Free speech is protected; violence is not.  But however it sorts itself out, I'm quite happy to no longer live there.  Enjoy playtime kids.  Remember Kent State (nevermind, before your time).  :sleep:

 

 

 

Minorities and minority voices are continually being executed and suppressed by armed State officials. Nothing new there since Kent State. Besides the protests were an expression of public feeling and was a major factor, if not the major factor in ending America's involvement in the Vietnam War.

 

But hey, why not advocate for protestors to be shot. Beats having to deal with their issues I guess.

Yes, and these are the guys that got upset when Trump said he may not like the outcome if he thought it was rigged. Now the shoe is on the other foot and the liberal hooligans and elitist thugs are all upset because they didn't win. Well they should have done a better job of rigging. Four years they'll get another shot at it. There wasn't this much rioting when the first black got elected president.

Follows in the same vein as Brexit. The next day people in America woke and said "My God What Have I Done" Oh well the next four years should be exiting. If the Donald does not deliver its goodbye to all 3 houses forever. And then there is this.  The assassination of Julius Caesar was the result of a conspiracy by many Republican senators. Funny how Trump seems to resemble Caesar.

That would be right.  The one Thai city taste forgot.  Plenty of bars to celebrate Trump's triumph, knock yourself out...please?

First few months?  He'll be testing the waters then.  Expect hell and fury later in 2017.  Hope the hell and fury is reserved for the gullible white trash in the mid west and those dumbed down pockets of the U.S.A and not so much for those of us in the rest of the civilised world.

Has anyone yet got an answer to what they are resisting, and why the government should fear them? 

 

What does this resistance entail?

Note, I had changed the word resistance which I knew in my heart was what was happening now, to opposition, to soften it, because some people were spinning the word resistance to necessary connote violence. It does not. Resistance can be NON-VIOLENT.

 

The word resistance can't be avoided any longer. It's cropping up EVERYWHERE to describe this new movement, that started the moment the absurdly unfit for president demagogue trump crossed the 270 mark. It's the only word that fits and is true. 

 

President trump? Yes, tragically, we need to get used to it.

Resistance to President trump, yes, HOPEFULLY, we need to get used to that TOO.

Why Jews have a special obligation to resist Trump

...

Half a century ago, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, “Let us yield no inch to bigotry, let us make no compromise with callousness.” As leaders of Jewish organizations committed to human rights, we believe that if ever there were a moment to commit to making no compromises with callousness, that moment must be now.

...

Our history has taught us that autocracy does not arrive all at once, but through the slow erosion of individual liberties and the pitting of one group against another. We cannot look away or hope for the best when politicians promise to assault our civil liberties and threaten human rights.

In America, the term "Elite" is used to mean "intellectually and morally superior" to YOU, deplorables.  But surprise - America was created partly to get rid of the aristocratic elite.  Lafayette, who fought in America on behalf of the Americans, was a promoter of the concept of the dignity of the common man and later returned to France to play a pivotal role in the French Revolution.  What is being lost in the interpretation of the victory of Donald J. Trump over the liberal elites is that it is a victory for the common man despite its other aspects.  It is a triumph for the common man who is sick of being told that he is deplorable in comparison to the politically correct cognescenti.  It is truly a victory from the heart of America and is in concord with deeply held American ideals as set forth in the Declaration of Independence.

Some more interesting musings about the anti-trump resistance, this time in the context of the Hamilton thingie.

As I've said, it's not focused yet.

It may never be.

But it's early days.

 

A phrase worth emphasizing from the link:

this is going to be a very long and ugly fight

The Hamilton-Pence Incident Was More Than Just a Distraction

...

But to me, the more interesting divides exposed by the Hamilton flap are those within a left that, less than two weeks after Election Day, is still staring at the smoldering crater and trying to figure out what kind of resistance can grow along its fringes. If the big divide right now among progressives is between those who feel that the Democrats should be primarily concerned with economic populism and those who believe that a coalition based on identitarian concerns can’t be left by the wayside, the intra-left split over Hamilton reflected that. There has always been a portion of the left that shares with a portion of the right a fundamental mistrust of Hollywood, of art, of pop culture. The right may think it is all  degenerate — a word Trump has used about art that offends him — but the left thinks it's all frivolous, insubstantial. An opiate for the masses, and a way of not looking at real issues.

...

You can do two things if you’re on a stage: Show or tell. There are those who feel Hamilton should have stuck with the first; instead, the cast and production team chose, for one night, to do both. While this is going to be a very long and ugly fight, I'd award them a narrow victory-by-decision in Culture Wars, Round One.

I would paraphrase it to:  


This is...very...ugly.

Elite now means holding power or influence and/or filthy rich. 9 figures and up. There's no intellectual or moral superiority about it. Trump is an elite and you would be hard pressed to find anyone he is intellectually or morally superior to.
