They allowed Socialists to take over the party, who's entire platform is focused on destroying and replacing the American melting pot with division, segregation, and hierarchical identity politics. 

If you feel alienated, join the rest of us battling these crazy far-left extremists. #resistance:ninja:

you're defending concentration camps.

Fox News created AOC. Conservatives on twitter helped create the Squad. Same level of culpability as CNN for giving Trump millions in free advertising during 2016.

I always thought it was if you see a problem in America you do something to solve it. One of the ways to do that was if you see a problem in the government you yourself become part of the government by getting elected and be the change you want to see. It's kinda been how this thing works for the last couple hundred+ years. 

 

Until now apparently? Telling a Congress person to love it or leave it is peak conservative dumb***ness.

it's also a special brand of conservative amnesia. 

like, do none of these guys remember the speech trump gave at the rnc in 2016?

That is why Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. My message is that things have to change – and they have to change right now. Every day I wake up determined to deliver for the people I have met all across this nation that have been neglected, ignored, and abandoned.

I also love the underlying message here.

 

We have no issues with legal immigration in fact we welcome it. I mean we aren't going to think of you as "Real Americans" and we definitely don't think you have a spot in our government but we are totally for legal immigration. You just gotta know your role second class American.

i was fortunate enough to grow out of my dumb libertarian stage at a young enough age. 

It's rare to find someone who moved left as they matured. What happened?

Which of the voices in your head was able to de-code that message for you?

it's actually not rare at all, this is just a dumb meme the right desperately wishes was true.

The one that heard where the President told a Congress person to go back where they came from if they hate America so much. Or the one that heard where Red & Black said you aren't really in the "America Club" until the third generation or so.

 

 

I'm sure it's been discussed on those message boards you spoke on before.

Polling data has consistently shown that millennials have shifted to the left as they have aged.

Looked up some polls. Didn't realize there were as many irreligious millennials as protestant millennials lol

Need to bump those numbers up so it includes Catholics.

I remember a popular movement by liberals telling people that they need to return to their countries of origin so they can experience their true heritage. It started a trend, (especially in the Black community) that continues to this day, of naming your children with culturally historic names.

Not surprisingly, that shift happens in college where they are actively indoctrinated to the left. The shift to the right inevitably happens when they get a job.

Pretty sure my most conservative years were my college ones. The shift to the left happened when I left and experienced the world.

Same.  When my friends graduated college and got jobs, I went left.  Someone had to pick up my slack.

like i said, this is an incredibly dumb meme that the right deludes itself into believing completely sans evidence.
