While I don't generally have much sympathy for rioters, the phrasing seems to pat here.


If the tweet discourages rioters, the phrasing is just fine whether it is true or not.

Same economic fears that gave rise to the Knights of the White Camelia and Ku Klux Klan in the 1870s. the resurgence of the Klan in the 1930s, the flight of White Southerners from the Democrat Party in the 1950s to the Dixiecrat party to the Republican party in the 80s an 90s.

I guess maybe its the bible story of the workers in the vinyard. The guys working since sun-up groussed because the guys that started that afternoon got the same pay.

Its a zero sum game and the more people get rights or freedoms or job opportunities is less for me and mine.

So many ways to answer that question

Same


And this rant is going to persuade Rust Belt swing voters to vote for your candidate, how?????



Many, not all, of these people are low education (high school diploma and less) medium to high skilled labor. Their families spent generations working in the factories, earning a decent to good living. The economic world has been shifting under them, the political/legal world has been shifting under them. They look around and their white, christian, eurocentric society is being sold out to minorities from all over the world, no telling how many here illegally, wanting to replace "our" laws with sharia law, blow us up in our churches or at our shopping malls. The Democrats trying to take our guns away and leave us defenseless.

Along comes trump, defying Political Correctness, saying things the other politicians refuse to say, being blasted by everybody in the media for daring to say it. Addressing our fears, promising to help us bring back our jobs, our religious values, our racial heritage that created this country. Make Government work for us to create jobs for us, not export them for no return.

Yes pandering to their fears, even sharing them. Humans make decisions based on emotion, not logic. Goering nailed it back in the 1930s and he was not the first. Pander to their fears and they will follow you anywhere.

The President is not the Vice President yet the President is always the one with all of the vices.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

(TL;DR: There are no indications that show Letterman ever writing the list)


He´s ignoring quite a few people. :mrgreen:


And yeah, pretty much expected that that supposed quote was totally fake.

Oh, and Daryl, one lines can't be that serious. If they are not serious, I don't care if Letterman said it or not. It might well be funnier as a joke that he never said.


Wow, goes directly for total denial.

I say the religion tax exemption is unconstitutional, because it places the government, through the IRS, in the position of approving some religions and disapproving others. How exactly is the IRS competent to distinguish a 'real' religion from a cult, or some phony just trying to dodge taxes?

The government gives some organizations a huge advantage over others by relieving them of taxes. How is that not 'establishing religion'? Why can't I declare my house to be the Church Of The Gray Cat, and not pay taxes too? I can at least demonstrate that there is a Gray Cat, and he certainly thinks he's God.

By the way, Scientology is not a religion, it's a joke. L. Ron laughed at all those morons until the day he died, and if there's any kind of an afterlife he's still laughing.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!!


Wow, just for once i have to say i totally agree with you. I think hell just froze over or something.

Daryl wrote:I'm obviously a bit thick and ill informed, but I thought your earliest settlers were people fleeing religious persecution, and seeking freedom of religious expression? Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock or something similar?


The thing most yanks don´t mention or rarely even has a clue about, is that many of those were persecuted for a reason.

Which is currently rather funny due to how those reasons could many times be oversimplified into "religiously justified terrorism".


#####
so they fled England over "religious" prosecution.


:lol:

Well, at least you didn´t write "religious prostitution". :mrgreen:

And while they were all for religious freedom for Puritans they were rabidly opposed to other religions intruding into their "New Jerusalem"


Pretty much starting up again where they left off back in Europe, yeah that was real swell of them.

Daryl, probably the USA's first white settlers.

It's possible the vikings got that far south. (Some people argue they must have since they named the area vinland and grape vines don't normally grow as far north as the viking settlements have been found.)
