Is this the winning we were going to get tired of?

Let's compare how Trump and Hitler handled political opponents:

Hitler: Executed political opposition or put them in (real) concentration camps.

Trump: Says mean things on twitter.

Seriously, the fascism and Nazi references are pure nonsense.  You guys are lucky Trump isn't Hitler-like or some of you would be dead or in a real concentration camp right now.

Kinda seems like he’s continuing to try and incite violence against the four congresswomen. Hopefully this isn’t enough to send some divorced ATV salesman over the edge.

I tried to tell y'all, those first tweets weren't just some random impulse, he's really going to keep coming back to this and make it part of his campaign.

?? I'm not angry. Sn4tteRBoxXeR expressed concern that your discourse was a setup to get him banned and I advised him to be wary of continuing the discussion. I would have posted the the same if you had similar concerns. Life is too short to engage in toxic conversation with someone you don't trust. When I get angry, this thread is the last place that I spend my time.

Naw I'm not trying to get him banned. I'm just happy someone else finally called out his bigotry and it wasn't even a conservative. His response was to Carter that he better stop saying that or he'll get banned for instigation. This was snatterboxs thing lately he calls everyone white terrorist and white terrorist sympathizers but hasn't felt as free to just casually throw it out specifically at anyone since we got new mods who will enforce the board rules equally. Now he just insinuates.  I think we should all be grown up enough and mature enough to police ourselves. If not maybe this isn't the right forum for us.

Exactly. He knows that four minority women on the left edge are going to incite his redneck base more than a bunch of old white centrists. All of this is for their benefit. All of those offended by this aren't voting for him anyway.

I think he wants to get the left addicted to the notion that only a racist could support Trump, so that they repeat that every time he says something in that sorta-ambiguous range he's always going for. He wants for there to be a low turnout for the Democrats so he can win with the base he's made for himself, and he's figured out how to get the progressives and the most popular Democrats in the House to fight with the centrists and the establishment Democrats over the extent to which they can condemn him for what he says in his tweets. So he can start that fight again whenever he wants, and the way he goes about it is limited only by his own imagination for trolling.

So now he's going to want to troll the squad into accusing the establishment of siding with racist Republicans over moral progressives, and pit their reputations against the always deeply unpopular establishment Democrats. And if a pure centrist like Biden or a pure socialist like Bernie gets elected in that environment, they're clipped right out of the gate by losing anyone who's already sworn off supporting the wrong kind of Democrat.

And if they're not arguing about that, they're arguing with each other over whether he himself is smart enough to know what he's doing, and usually conclude he isn't, because he'd have to be some kinda ******* genius to figure this out I guess.

Sounds like MAJOR projections of someone's own short comings to me.

Oh I am SURE the reason for this is that they weren't really trying with Obama and decided to go through Trump with a fine tooth comb. B)

That's the thing about fascism. By the time you realize you're caught up in it, its too late.

And unfortunately, those who support Trump are buried up to the neck.

Yeah, as some person here has already said, "he has said mean things only". Since all other fascism started with folks being tortured and killed and not with someone spewing hate in the beginning, you know.

There were a ton of Obama scandals butb it was racist to talk about them while he was in office which led to Trump getting elected.

Fast and furious chiefly among them.

Isn't that the sickest part? He's projecting again, the worst of all things that could be said (and be true) about a POTUS.

I can’t wait till he invents a new migrant caravan headed our way a few months before the election and says the squad supports it.
