Virtue signaling is what right wingers term any good deed or altruism. They lack the empathy to comprehend how any individual can be decent towards anyone else unless a benefit is involved. Its projection.
Yep, which goes back to my point, anytime the word is used seriously, I automatically know to filter out whatever the person is about to say next. It's like an acid test.

Conservatives have long been extremely Victorian about not wanting any discussion of sex, that's true. And arguable detrimental when, instead of factual, science based sex education, they push for radical abstinence-only programs in schools.
Murder, however, conservatives have never had a problem with being shown in media. They love violence that's directed against the people they don't like. Just look how quick Trump supporters are to want to fight anyone that disagrees with Trump or how aggressive they get over simply wearing a mask for health reasons




I can understand not believing Biden is for the working guy. But to then conclude that Trump of all people is for the working guy shows some massive cognitive dissonance.

The guy that went bankrupt multiple times sticking taxpayers with the bill, that profited off taxpayer loans to even start his business (corporate socialism), the guy that embraced Roy Cohn, a ruthless anti-citizen policies under McCarthy, the guy that pushed for years a movement to claim America's first black President was actually born in Africa, the guy that was pals with Roger Stone, the PR guy for dictators and worse, the guy that litigated anyone that he doesn't want to pay fairly for their hard work, the guy that doesn't pay his taxes, the guy that tries to cheat everyone, the guy that thought Biden's crime bill wasn't harsh enough, the guy whose entire Presidency was based on the richest billionaires pay less in taxes than the working class, etc
To think that that guy is actually FOR the working guy?
That is truly delusional or just ignorance.



If we are talking anecdotally, everyone I know that is smart and voted for Trump did so for one simple reason: they want to pay less taxes and they make over $150,000 a year.



The OG conservatives I know jumped ship on Trump when they saw what he was really about. They didn't like Biden but they didn't like Trump's proto-fascism even more.



Most Trump supporters have elevated their misguided views of Ayn Rand style laissez-faire market fundamentalism and/or belief in their arbitrary interpretation of the Constitution to near-religious status.



There is a reason the far-right has long been attacking universities and education. They don't want the next generation to think for themselves. They want them to buy their pre-configured belief system.



What are you on about? The far-right have not been "losing" for the last 40 years. They have pushed right-wing economics for the last 40 years (deregulation that led to the 2008 financial crisis), the crime bill that Biden sponsored was gleefully supported by the right-wing (they just didn't like the assault weapon ban), they've massively shifted the courts to the right, shifted the Overton Window to the right.

By just about every measure, the right-wing has pushed more of their policies in the last 40 years (to detriment of ordinary people). They are just whining because they aren't getting their way on EVERYTHING (like abortion and LGBT rights)




I came across a few of these in the last month, and they were all rabid Trump supporters that literally wanted to fight anyone who said anything bad about the guy they believe should be on Mt. Rushmore.
Great post.

How are 3k ballots really going to change anything? It's 0.05% of the total. Have CNN just arbitrarily decided they might want to call it now? Because I can't see how it will significantly change the math.

It's a real shame you support Arsenal. Please reconsider so we can fully embrace you.
