Political liberals are “bleeding hearts” because they empathize so strongly with the sufferings of others. As Bill Clinton so succinctly phrased it, “I feel your pain.” When Republicans wanted to compete in the empathy department, they had to invent a new terminology to identify this strange bird. They called it a “compassionate conservative.”Conservatives see the world as a more threatening place because their brains predispose them to being fearful (2). They are also predisposed by brain biology to hating complexity and compromise. That would help to explain why politics can be so polarized, particularly in a rather conservative era like the present. https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/the-human-beast/201210/why-liberal-hearts-bleed-and-conservatives-dont
Usually, comparisons between Donald Trump’s America and Nazi Germany come from cranks and internet trolls. But a new essay in the New York Review of Books pointing out “troubling similarities” between the 1930s and today is different: It’s written by Christopher Browning, one of America’s most eminent and well-respected historians of the Holocaust. In it, he warns that democracy here is under serious threat, in the way that German democracy was prior to Hitler’s rise — and really could topple altogether.Browning, a professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina, specializes in the origins and operation of Nazi genocide. His 1992 book Ordinary Men, a close examination of how an otherwise unremarkable German police battalion evolved into an instrument of mass slaughter, is widely seen as one of the defining works on how typical Germans became complicit in Nazi atrocities.So when Browning makes comparisons between the rise of Hitler and our current historical period, this isn’t some keyboard warrior spouting off. It is one of the most knowledgeable people on Nazism alive using his expertise to sound the alarm as to what he sees as an existential threat to American democracy.Browning’s essay covers many topics, ranging from Trump’s “America First” foreign policy — a phrase most closely associated with a group of prewar American Nazi sympathizers — to the role of Fox News as a kind of privatized state propaganda office. But the most interesting part of his argument is the comparison between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Paul von Hindenburg, the German leader who ultimately handed power over to Hitler. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/10/5/17940610/trump-hitler-history-historian
Morality is a pointless load of crap based on superstition and inter-subjective cultural norms and only reason and compassion can save humans from molesting each other in the butt hole. Prove me wrong.
Journalist: So are you going to explain the institutional racism, the constant wall of lies, the appeals to nationalism and populism, the invention of alternate facts, the vicious attacks against the media and the industrialisation of bigotry?Trump/Hitler. Nah, look at what I've done for the economy.
When Brenner asked Trump about how he came to possess Hitler's speeches, "Trump hesitated" and then said, "Who told you that?""I don't remember," Brenner reportedly replied.Trump then recalled, "Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of 'Mein Kampf,' and he's a Jew."http://uk.businessinsider.com/donald-trumps-ex-wife-once-said-he-kept-a-book-of-hitlers-speeches-by-his-bed-2015-8
His filthy tirade of lies and fascist nonsense is not representative of Jews or of Jewish culture. He is one of the unfortunate extremists we seem to produce in Israel who interpret the Torah literally. He has been told to hate Muslims his entire life so he has come to view them as a lower form of life, because he simply does not have the intellectual capacity for empathy.
Hello: Shortly before the mid terms, I made a prediction about what both Trump and Mueller would do after the elections.. I said whoever moved first would win. Trump wasted NO time firing Sessions and installing his lackey at temp AG. That put a FRIEND in charge of Mueller.. Boy, oh boy.. It LOOKED like Trump beat Mueller to the punch, and the investigation was DOOMED. But, Mueller is so much smarter than Trump. Turns out, before the election, he filed 50 or so SEALED indictments in court that CANNOT be undone by Whitaker.. Looks like the investigation IS over..excon
Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) caused a firestorm on Friday when he suggested using nuclear weapons against American citizens who oppose his far-left gun control agenda, which includes forcing Americans to give up their semi-automatic weapons.Swalwell made the comment in response to a May news article on his radical plan that was widely recirculated on Twitter on Friday in which he called for a $15 billion government program to confiscate millions of guns from Americans.Now that is Tyrannical Totalitarian Government the Far Left wants in place in America.
I have seen many people call Donald Trump a "racist".According to the dictionary, racism can be defined as "any action, practice, or belief that reflects the racial worldview—the ideology that humans may be divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races”; that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural and behavioral features; and that some races are innately superior to others." As I understand, Donald Trump has never stated that any race is superior to another. He has, however, shown disdain for undocumented immigrants. Do these qualify as a race?
More disturbingly, the Washington Post reported in 2013 that Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) surveilled a Fox News reporter and obtained a search warrant for his e-mails while conducting an investigation into national security leaks in 2009. Although he wasn’t the only journalist targeted in such an investigation, the Fox News correspondent was singled out as a possible “aider, abettor, and/or co-conspirator,” a fact which, according to the Post, “distinguishes his case from the probe of the AP, in which the news organization is not the likely target.”https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/obama-block-fox-news-reporters/
