Mmm, love how she's giving Noonan bad attention.

 

I always love revisiting her "Savor" article after Bush won in 04. :daydream:

No bait, just how I felt. 

 

You felt that, while a cultural and social values war is literally being waged by one side aggressively for 3 years now, it's self-aggrandizing to cheer and clap for the side under attack the few rare times you get a proper shout out in a shitty speech from that same despicable side?

 

That's quite the hot take.

That just started three years ago and is only coming from one side? OK! Matter of fact, LOL!!!!!!!! at that. 

 

Edit 24 minutes later: I thought about it and laughed hard again. Thanks for that, you made a good day even better.

Hot take.  Did the Republicans in the audience only clap for things pertinent to them?

I would expect them only to do so, they really don't lean into the for all mantra.

"spirited and warm" = "you're beautiful, just smile honey" ??

 

Basically this is how it is viewed. If a man is stoic and stern, he is serious. If a women is the same, then she is a cold bitch.

I heard some good things about Stacey Abrams' response. Did anyone watch it? Was it worthwhile?

 

I did... I had to edit a piece about her response last night for air. She did a really good job of personalizing her story, being positive and upbeat and staying on offense about the shut down and voter suppression. The only problem was the staging was very weird and her lighting made her look like she was shot on a green screen and poorly composited with an audience in the back. Very strange... other than that she did a very good job. Look for more from her in the future.

I thought she was boring. She couldn't keep my attention.

Which is the way all of these things should be. Just get rid of it and go back to letters. In fact, have the letters read by a neutral government official instead, like in some countries' throne speeches! Unfortunately the US has no separate head of state to do that.

What AOC did was polite compared to what I would've done: stood for the entire speech with my back turned or audibly heckled at ever opportunity and turned it into an American version of prime minister's question time.

Umm . . . all the latent racism and sexism (among other things) that the GOP has become is certainly coming from one side, so what the fuck are you talking about? What war have progressives started on conservatives that is affecting them so badly in terms of cultural or social values that suppresses and oppresses them?

It’s nice to see so many Democrats applauding Trump. #resist

 

I would be okay with applauding politely before he starts. But that is it. And even then, complete silence would be better.

You're talking to someone who was offended by a commercial with the message 'hey maybe it's a bad idea for men to harass women and tolerate their son's bullying'.

Lol

The same conservatives that are so mad about AOC peacefully not standing once for Trump at the SotU saying how disrespectful she is were A-OK with Republican Representative Wilson shouting “You lie!” at Obama’s SotU. :lol:

There is a reason Trump won, that people that voted for Obama voted for Trump, but yeah, its been discussed many times, even here, but I guess you've missed all that, or ignored it since it doesn't fit your "oppression."

Lol. My main issue was with the portrayal that only some men are good. You know, like you all had an issue with Trump saying some Mexicans are good.

This sentence literally makes no sense. Yes, people voted for a populist, but they chose the wrong one because people are stupid.

 

What does any of that have to do with the alt-right war on cultural and social values?

A smirking white kid with a MAGA hat has literally had death threats and calls for complete doxxing to block him from ever going to college or gaining any kind of meaningful employment. Literally hundreds, if not thousands of frothing at the mouth lunatic liberals want this kid either dead, or basically completely non-personed. And that is just one example, because it happens to any white male having the audacity to express any kind of conservative opinion. 

 

People are tired of living in liberal lunacy clown world, where everyone must now walk on eggshells because if you say anything that members of the permanently offended class don't like your career can be ruined. Even minorities like Kevin Hart are finding out they aren't safe either. Say anything that dares to question the golden liberal truth and you literally run the risk if your livelihood being ruined. I'd qualify that as suppressing and oppressing people.

You're a smart guy, you should know by now that there are some people here who just aren't worth engaging, unless you just want to bash your head against a wall over and over.

Ah yes, because conservatives NEVER send death threats to people that dont deserve it.

And yes, I am aware that Kavanaugh's wife was also sent death threats too.  My point is that sending death threats is wrong, but retards from all walks of life do it.  People do it over sports, movies, comic books, cartoons, video games, etc.  Don't act like it's only the big bad SJW boogeymen that do this shit.

Shitty extremists exist on both sides, who knew?

 

I still choose the side that points toward a better, more equal future for all people, regardless of socioeconomic status, gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
