Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

ALJ2, You may remember that in old Heidelberg, extending ones tie towards one's crotch was a not so subtle invitation to a crotch grabbing. Later there were evenings at Studio 54 where my friends would at times need assistance just to stand when their Yves Saint Laurent would catch under each others thighs.
It was a simpler time.

ALJ2, too true, but you shouldn't work so hard to prove them right.

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

Great piece for a publication where Tim Sampson in his last column called those who disagree with him subhuman. (Which, by the way, is how National Socialists - aka, Nazis - characterize "non-Aryans"; in German it's untermenchen. Just ask ern)
And where the editor calls those who disagree with him morons, and while on vacation was SHOCKED to discover the congenial, polite family they ran into were conservatives.

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

@Chris

I might be wrong here since all I know is what I read in the newspapers.

But I thought the reason Steve Bannon now works in the White House is that Donald Trump brought him there.

And the reason Trump could do that is because he carried the states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

And Trump carried those states because people who normally turn out and vote for Democrats either stayed home or voted for Trump.

So would it be more accurate to say that the reason Bannon is in the White House is not because of Republican votes but because of disaffected Democrats?

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

Oak Spencer calls himself an Identitarian. He and Milos are the naked Ids of the insergent white nationalist Right. I didn't make them Conservative celebrities or put them on the guest list at CPAC before disinviting them. It's not Democratic error that put Steve Bannon in the White House it was Republican votes.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

Nightcrawler,
When you are making the bladder gladder who do you prefer to stand next to someone with a beard and newly formed penis, or someone with breasts who has to back up to a urinal in heels to accomplish the same task?
I'm not here to judge, just curious.

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

Oak,

The democrat party long ago decided that the working class were, as a whole: white nationalist bigots with contempt for the poor that enjoy environmental destruction who like standard thousands of years old gender roles and also are all homophobic and xenophobia who like national security way too much and are, generally speaking dangerous and ignorant cigarette smokers that are all fat, lazy, and should stop liking those guns.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has more than enough on his federal law enforcement plate than to unnecessarily take on the title in the above silly and immature cartoon (emphasis on cartoon).

The issue at hand should be the sole responsibility of the states the restrooms are located in; not the federal government's responsibility. Fortunately, Sessions and his boss agree.

Considering less than one-half of one percent of the U.S. population is transgender, and that there's no federal law or executive order that covers this specific issue, this is much ado about nothing.

Well, unless one is a radical prog who at the drop of a hat will be hell-bent on nonsensical violence with bought-and-paid-for goons to orchestrate chaos simply because the pendulum of political power has swung way out of reach for at least the next eight years...and probably longer.

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

Oak has a point. I consider myself right of center on average and I am probably moderately to very conservative by many metrics. Yet I in no way relate to Trump and find he, several of his staff members and other regulars at the Oval Office (such as Breitbart) to be by a wide margin, the most petulant, dimwitted and gangrenous individuals to occupy the White House in my lifetime.

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

@GroveReb84, AP - You two are, of course, correct. Flinging the poo of invective will not solve the problem which the Democrats created for themselves. It's just that they like flinging the poo so much -SO MUCH- I don't think they can stop. It's almost like an addiction.

An old Zen saying, is that when the student is ready, the master appears.

What is meant by that, is that our imbalances make us wobble. Because they make us wobble, we have a hard time staying on track toward our goals. We wobble off track, and into the weeds, and that's how we get into trouble.

Now naturally, we don't like this. Because well, it's TROUBLE! And we think trouble is bad. But it's not. Trouble is good. It makes us work to figure out what went wrong. That's how it teaches us how to eliminate those imbalances, and fix ourselves.

So like they say, when the student is ready, the master appears.

The Democrats have found their Master. And his name is Trouble... err... Trump!
Ha!

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

@Chris - "Conservatives have an identity problem. It's called their identity."

This is perhaps the laziest non sequitur that I've seen you publish in a long time.

What, pray tell, is a 'conservative' exactly? Anybody who supports the Trumpster? Like tons of dues paying Union workers in the Rust Belt? Boy howdy, those racist, xenophobic liberal Teamsters and UAW workers sure do have a problem with their 'conservative identity', don't they? They can't be 'liberal' because they're racist and xenophobic, right?

Knocking down straw men seems to be your stock in trade lately, Chris.

And I ain't buying.

HA! As an example of me, myself and I, it seems very fitting in Trump's case.

@barf

I think we can agree on everything you said.

Trump is his own worst enemy and is likely to continue to be so.
