• Hey, Republicans, How do you expect to win in 2020 when you've already lost almost the entire transgender vote?

    Some transgendered individuals may have voted for Trump in 2016 with a misguided belief that he would be good for the economy, but they are quickly waking up to the disaster his administration is. It's very likely that by 2020 not a single trans person will vote Republican. How does it feel to lose one of the most important demographics in the US? show more

  • Why do right wing conservatives always screw up my arguments with their hateful facts?

    Always bringing in statistics, almanacs, Wikipedia, FBI stats...I am sick of it. Your hateful facts do not justify racism and transphobia.

  • Why do some people propose multiculturalism when homogenous societies have done so well?

    Yes, the USA is the richest and most powerful nation on earth and it is diverse, but that diversity has meant a lot of strife. Brazil is very diverse and it is extremely dangerous. India is diverse and much of the population lives in dire poverty. Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Finland are not diverse and they are... show more

India is diverse and much of the population lives in dire poverty. Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Finland are not diverse and they are extremely successful nations with little poverty. Why are multiculturalists more prone to advocating for a society similar to Brazil than Iceland or Japan?

  • Why do people say Trump is literally Hitler when he's literally Stalin?

    They are so misguided. Trump is literally, literally Stalin. Stalin had big hair and so does Donald Trump. Stalin often smiled and so does Donald Trump. Stalin came from Georgia; Donald Trump grew up 2,000 miles north of Georgia. Get it through your heads, people, Trump is not literally Hitler, he is literally Stalin. The similarities are uncanny.

  • Fellow progressives, isn't it time we erased Bill Clinton, Roman Polanski, JFK, and Woody Allen from the history books?

    In 1960 we voted for JFK; in 1963 and afterwards, we mourned him. But we know now that he sexually harassed women. In 2009, we signed petitions fighting extradition orders against Roman Polanski; seven years earlier we applauded him when he won an Oscar. In 1992 and 1996, we voted for Bill Clinton in spite of the allegations of Gennifer Flowers,... show more

In 1992 and 1996, we voted for Bill Clinton in spite of the allegations of Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, and Juanita Brodderick; then we supported his wife, who was his enabler. We gave awards to Woody Allen, celebrated his work at Cannes, eagerly starred in his films, even though he was accused of molestation by his daughter. We need to clean house. We need these men expunged from the records. We need to start over.

  • Are right-wing conservatives secretly hoping that Hollywood will shut down and all the major figures will be unemployed?

    Is it the secret dream of Trumpers to see Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, George Clooney, Scarlet Johannson, Di Caprio, Judd, et all out of work?

  • Why do cons think it hypocritical for a white progressive to champion diversity yet live in a nearly all-white neighborhood?

    Where you live does not correlate to your commitment to social justice. Does a good factory worker sleep in the factory at night? No.

  • Are Canadians and Europeans grateful they are not stuck with a stupid 1st amendment that bigots use to spread racism?

    I am sick of Trump supporters using the first amendment to spew their hate. In Canada, hate speech is not protected; nor is it protected in Europe. If I were Canadian I would be so grateful my country doesn't have a stupid, outdated amendment to protect the likes of Trump and the lowlifes who voted for him.

  • What can progressives do to prove Donald Trump wrong and establish that Haiti is not a "sh1thole"?

    The problem is that whenever I try to contradict this claim about Haiti, right wing Trumptards always come along with facts about sanitation/sewage in Haiti. They give me stupid links that are six years old: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shot... That's six years ago; six years is plenty of time to build a sewer system. Things change.

  • Why is it all right when liberals refer to the space between California and NYC as a "sh1thole"?

    But it's wrong to use this epithet to describe countries where most of the population is unemployed, life expectancy is short, violence is everywhere, human rights don't exist, etc.

  • Should we be grateful that we at least have a stable genius instead of an unstable one in the White House?

    We have had many geniuses over the centuries, but quite a handful have been insane, e.g., Tesla, Bobby Fischer, Ted Kaczynski, Antonin Artaud, Guy de Maupassant, Ezra Pound, etc. So, with all the criticism of Trump shouldn't we at least be grateful that although a genius he is stable and not insane like the aforementioned?

  • How best should I defend Haiti against racist deplorable charges that it's a "sh1thole"?

    I am sick of racists saying negative things about Haiti. If another deplorable mocks Haiti, what should I use as ammunition to prove him wrong? I don't care if the rebuttals are true or not, I just want to defend Haiti against racists like Trump who say it's a "sh1thole"!

    This man is oblivious to facts. Haiti was the first black republic; it has miles of coastline, an excellent music scene, first-class rum, a fascinating history, and charming people. Is this man blind?

    Look at Trump's shoes and look at Hitler's shoes. He laces them one time with short strands peeking out. It's bad enough this guy is literally Hitler now he insists on dressing just like him. The man is sick.

There are Trump campaign signs on his front lawn and Trump bumper stickers on his car. I had thought about cutting him off but my friends advised me to work with helping him come around and see the errors of his way. Like the rest of the Trumptards, he has no manners. I bought etiquette books (Amy Vanderbilt's Guide; Emily Post's Guide, De Beers' Guide, etc.) and he took it as an insult, refuses to read them and has unfriended me on Facebook. What should I do?
