So, after 18 pages, not ONE Trump supporter can dispute, again, this part of the article - instead it's about diverting


The Trump era is such a whirlwind of cruelty that it can be hard to keep track. This week alone, the news broke that the Trump administration was seeking to ethnically cleanse more than 193,000 American children of immigrants whose temporary protected status had been revoked by the administration, that the Department of Homeland Security had lied about creating a database of children that would make it possible to unite them with the families the Trump administration had arbitrarily destroyed, that the White House was considering a blanket ban on visas for Chinese students, and that it would deny visas to the same-sex partners of foreign officials. At a rally in Mississippi, a crowd of Trump supporters cheered as the president mocked Christine Blasey Ford, the psychology professor who has said that Brett Kavanaugh, whom Trump has nominated to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court, attempted to rape her when she was a teenager. “Lock her up!” they shouted.

We can hear the spectacle of cruel laughter throughout the Trump era. There were the border-patrol agents cracking up at the crying immigrant childrenseparated from their families, and the Trump adviser who delighted white supremacists when he mocked a child with Down syndrome who was separated from her mother. There were the police who laughed uproariously when the president encouraged them to abuse suspects, and the Fox News hosts mocking a survivor of the Pulse Nightclub massacre (and in the process inundating him with threats), the survivors of sexual assault protesting to Senator Jeff Flake, the women who said the president had sexually assaulted them, and the teen survivors of the Parkland school shooting. There was the president mocking Puerto Rican accents shortly after thousands were killed and tens of thousands displaced by Hurricane Maria, the black athletes protesting unjustified killings by the police, the women of the #MeToo movement who have come forward with stories of sexual abuse, and the disabled reporter whose crime was reporting on Trump truthfully. It is not just that the perpetrators of this cruelty enjoy it; it is that they enjoy it with one another. Their shared laughter at the suffering of others is an adhesive that binds them to one another, and to Trump.


You really should cite your sources. You claim to have a journalism degree, but you didnt link this shit to the atlantic? (Yes you did in the op, but we are 19 pages in, and its proper to always source your shit, in each post, less those late to the party think you wrote this garbage)

I got to the second paragraph, second sentence of your post and thought why would I want to keep reading something like this?

The article calls me a cruel human being.

Your comment says I have no empathy.

You are one damn ugly person.

This is a political post for her. The border issues were going on under obama and not one peep from our moral authority poster.

It wasn't a figment of imagination that showed up at the rally. It was ANTIFA that created a confrontation.
They really did create the confrontation, those on the right tried engaging in debate... mostly they just wound up getting assaulted.

Whatever, usually, people that throw shit around are locked up in the clink. Now, the left acts like that is responsible political discourse.

To much hysterics. “Ethnically cleanse”.....


Its a disgusting exaggeration and I am not surprised at all no one has taken this hysterical dumb as shit post seriously.
Sure thing

Just focus on the first few paragraphs (which is something called a metaphor - you do know what the word means right?)

And again, completely ignore the rest = which is all factually accurate.

Which again, no one can dispute. How many times have we seen at his rallies where he makes disgusting remarks and the crowds all cheer.

So many have lost count.

Its a shit article from a shit source. The moment the author got all stupid with ethnically cleanseing I rolled my eyes and stopped reading.

Its stupid as fuck and you should be embarrassed for posting it.

LMAO... So not only was that poorly cited hate speech so wrapped in fiction and half-truths as to be nearly incomprehensible, but it was a situation of plagiarism from our journalism expert? LMAO.
