The Problem With Calling All Republicans Racist
Democrats and the media have been doing it for years, declaring that every white republican is a racist and every minority republican is a tool. There's only several problems with such a tactic. First, it's stereotyping and discrimination, two things Democrats claim to be vehemently opposed to. Second, it's not true. Registering as a Republican does not make one racist or even strongly suggest that one could be a racist. There are so many social, religious, and political reasons to vote for either party that such a claim is "the boy crying wolf". NAMBLA supports the Democratic party. Does that make all Democrats Pedophiles? If the Democratic Party were to support a party platform declaring all blacks could own white slaves, the KKK would definitely support the Republican Party. Third, declaring all Republican candidates prevents people from recognizing true racists and racism. It desensitizes people from seeing real dangers. Fourth, it prevents them from seeing the racism and racist policies within their own party. Fifth, it belittles true victims of racism. The Democratic party, the media, AND progressives are the grown up version of the school bully. They love to name call: All Republicans are racist, All Republicans are sexist, All Republicans are homophobes and since spanking is "child abuse" then, all Republicans are child abusers. This is a way of shutting down the dialogue, of preventing valid concerns and valid opposing ideas from being heard.
What the hell do they want?
Was listening to that snowflake idiot Tom Perez and besides jumping up and down, cursing and sounding like a five year old I didn't hear any ideas about issues the Democratic Party is concerned about. I sure as hell didn't hear any solutions about anything, unless the solution is to hate Trump. Look I get they hate Trump. I don't much like him and I voted for him. Just like on OPP you take any subject the left purports to care about and all they do is scream, whine and throw tantrums. One simple topic. Illegals. You don't want a wall, fine. what's the solution. If you're for open borders have the gonads to say it. That's just one example. Many, many more.
Trump: "Make America great again...as long as I don't have to sacrifice anything"
Our President-for-profit managed to dodge the draft with five deferments. This is your hero of America First? His clothing business had their products made in China and Bangladeshi. Author of "The Art Of The Deal" has had four bankruptcies and all his trademark Trump lines, thirteen of them (such as Trump Steak, Trump Vodka, Trump University and so on) went bust. This is the guy you want to deal for America? He has been sued over 3500 times. He is notorious for stiffing the little guy. Just as he stiffed his supporters with numerous flip-flops and lack of leadership since being elected. He is just out for Trump. How could you all be so blind? How on God's good earth can you continue to be so blind? Orange Little Fingers will destroy America.
Questions for OPP Bloggers
We all know that Trump is a pathological Liar that nobody can dispute left or right. Because there is multiple film clips of him saying one thing and then doing and saying another.
What specifically concerns me is Build a wall that only Trump wants and Mexico will pay but now that Mexico has refused to pay he wants the American tax payer to pay for the Why. Does this concern the American tax payer.
We all remember Trump comments that the US has bad Trade bills around the world because China is a currency manipulator that will be my main focus my first day in Office to have my Treasury Secratary label China a currency manipulator so that I can begin to make good deals, fabulous deals and I know how to do it.
He has said that China is no longer a currency manipulator and he walks away from TPP and now the US will be blocked out of Trans Pacific trade program is this how we negotiate just walk away.
We all remember Trump on the campaign trail saying It would a mistake for Obama to get involved in Syria stay out of Syria it will start WW III. We all heard these statements nobody can deny it, time and time again he said these things. Whats the first thing he does he bombs Syria,
Remember his ridiculous statements on North Korea and Japan why not allow these countries to have Nukes. These are statements right out of Trumps mouth you cannot deny these statements. But now he is going to start a war in North Korea for testing Nuke delivery systems. Doe this not concern you.
Obama plays to much Golf when I am elected I will be in the White House 24/7 working my ass off to make America great again and I will not see one of my golf courses much to the delight of his supporters you can't deny this there is tape after tape rally after rally of him saying it. Trump is out of the White House every Thursday evening or Friday mornings headed to his golf course. Why do you people think this is okay.
But there have been Lie after Lie after Lie from Trump it seems to be excepted by the right wing expecially on OPP. But has anybody ever thought that just maybe he is in early stages of Dementia. He constantly makes different statements than his cabinet members I believe it has become a problem there are many professional now are very concerned about Trump I think we all should

Fun Fact on Military Service
I don't really have the energy or resources to research this, but knowing the character and commitment to their country of the folks mentioned, my inclination is to accept it as true.
America Voted for Trump Because It hates the Mainstream Media
America isn't fond of Trump but, no one can stand the mainstream media. The mainstream media is the one place you can go to when you don't want to think for yourself. They claim to be honest while they lie to your face. They complain about fake news while propagating fake news. They say they're unbiased while proving their extreme bias. They never report anything that doesn't fit their worldview. They publish opinion polls that are supposed to represent the will of the American people but, at best, represent the will of people who live in big metropolises and, at worst, are skewed to represent only their worldview. They talk about being open minded but, can't understand an opposing viewpoint so, they write it all off as racism, sexism, discrimination, or bigotry. They feed off and exacerbate the fears of the American people. They word questions dishonestly.They have lost all integrity.
Remember when democrats mattered?
Yeah , me neither
FoxNews Sean Hannity the Next Victim after O'Reilly.
Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Contributor
© Provided by The Daily Beast - NICHOLAS KAMM/Getty Sean Hannity is the latest Fox News personality facing allegations of sexual harassment.
During a Friday interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel accused Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room before and after a debate with a pro-Palestinian guest in Detroit. Schlussel said she rejected Hannity’s alleged advances and that she was never invited on his show again.
Schlussel and Hannity were scheduled to speak together at the Detroit show, Schlussel said. But before the show, Hannity allegedly invited her to an event at a nearby bookstore.
“He had some event at a bookstore where he signed his book for people standing in line. He asked me to come meet him at this book signing,” Schlussel said on Campbell’s show. “So I met him there and it was very awkward. He had me up there with him while he signed books and I felt very weird. These people don’t know me and they didn’t come for me to sign their books. Then I left to get ready for the show, and he said, ‘Why don’t you come back with me to my hotel?’ and I said no, I have to get ready for the show.”
Shortly before the show, Hannity allegedly told Schlussel they would team up against another panelist. But Schlussel told Campbell that the move was a “head-fake” against her.
“Sean came up to me and said we’re gonna double-team (which was a weird phrase to use) this Palestinian guy that I was up against on the show,” Schlussel said. “And then every time I tried to open my mouth and say something, they yelled at me and said obey your host, you can’t say anything or else we’re gonna shut off your microphone.”
After the show, Schlussel claims Hannity made another advance on her. “My dad and my brother were there in the green room,” Schlussel said, claiming that Hannity “tried to get me to go back with him to the hotel after the show.”
Schlussel claimed she rejected the offer a second time, and was not invited on any future Hannity programs.
“After that, I wasn’t booked on his show again. And he called me and yelled at me,” Schlussel said. “I got a very weird feeling about the whole thing, and I kind of knew I wouldn’t be back on his show.”
In a statement to The Daily Beast, Hannity denied Schlussel’s allegations and accused her of seeking attention.
“LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100 percent false and a complete fabrication,” Hannity wrote. “This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.”
“The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with,” Hannity wrote. “This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.”
He went on to threaten legal action against Schlussel.
“My patience with this individual is over. I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual. In this fiercely divided and vindictive political climate I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views. I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.”
Hannity and Schlussel have a history of clashing, after she wrote a 2010 blog post accusing him of running a scam charity for military families. Schlussel alleged that less than 4 percent of the revenue from Hannity’s “Freedom Concerts” went to U.S. troops and their families, and that most of the concerts’ earnings went to lavish expenses. Hannity and his colleagues denied the allegations.
In 2007, Schlussel wrote a blog post accusing Hannity of “deliberately ripping off” an anti-Muslim column she wrote in the New York Post.
“That’s Sean Hannity for you,” she wrote in the 2007 post. “This is not the first time he’s done this to me, just the latest.”
The Liberal/Democrat syndicate not being able to destroy Trump on that fake allegations about Russia collusions, proceed to take away every powerful Conservative commentators at FoxNews. First O'Reilly, then now Hannity. These women powered by greedy lawyers are targeting multi-millionaires to extort easy money, and for political destructions. Democrats without Hannity and O'Reilly, will be free lying and deceiving the American people with nobody to negate them.
It is dangerous to be around with greedy women. It seems to me most of them are. They lie, trash their integrity for the sake of money and political destructions. Lawyers wanting to extort millions, and the democrat party wanting the demise of the Conservatives, relentlessly destroy one by one the powers behind FoxNews. Without O'Reilly and Hannity, nobody is left really who could maintain FoxNews It will go down in history. Fact is /foxNews soared its rating due to O'Reilly and Hannity. With them gone, Fox is also gone.
Fact is the massive crimes of Hillary and Obama must be addressed by the inept Congress. Congress, what are you doing to protect the American people? We elected you to protect and defend our rights pulverized by Clinton and Obama groups. You have done nothing to prosecute anyone of them. Their crimes are massive and worst than that of President Nixon.
'1984' a Synopsis
The novel; '1984' - a Synopsis
Definition of Synopsis: a condensed statement or outline (as of a narrative or treatise)
There are many brands of "conservative".
Many that have been "given" that brand.
The term is not very definitive any more.
Likewise for the term "liberal".
In my opinion it is the "neoCON" cover that has been used; as being "conservative".
But that is the purpose.
Orwell knew what was up when he wrote '1984' using the term "newspeak".
Terms are bastardized for a purpose; confusion being one.
IMO; Sinister and diabolical.
After all; Satan is the Father of all lies.
Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel published in 1949 by English author George Orwell. The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation. The superstate and its residents are dictated to by a political regime euphemistically named English Socialism, shortened to "Ingsoc" in Newspeak, the government's invented language. The superstate is under the control of the privileged elite of the Inner Party, a party and government that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as "thoughtcrime", which is enforced by the "Thought Police".
The tyranny is ostensibly overseen by Big Brother, the Party leader who enjoys an intense cult of personality, but who may not even exist. The Party "seeks power entirely for its own sake. It is not interested in the good of others; it is interested solely in power." The protagonist of the novel, Winston Smith, is a member of the Outer Party, who works for the Ministry of Truth (or Minitrue in Newspeak), which is responsible for propaganda and historical revisionism. His job is to rewrite past newspaper articles, so that the historical record always supports the party line. The instructions that the workers receive portray the corrections as fixing misquotations and never as what they really are: forgeries and falsifications. A large part of the Ministry also actively destroys all documents that have not been edited and do not contain the revisions; in this way, no proof exists that the government is lying. Smith is a diligent and skillful worker but secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion against Big Brother. The heroine of the novel, Julia, is based on Orwell's second wife, Sonia Orwell.
As literary political fiction and dystopian science-fiction, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic novel in content, plot and style. Many of its terms and concepts, such as Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, Room 101, telescreen, 2 + 2 = 5, and memory hole, have entered into common use since its publication in 1949. Nineteen Eighty-Four popularised the adjective Orwellian, which describes official deception, secret surveillance, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state. In 2005, the novel was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. It was awarded a place on both lists of Modern Library 100 Best Novels, reaching number 13 on the editor's list, and 6 on the readers' list. In 2003, the novel was listed at number 8 on the BBC's survey.
