Its a low bar to clear, but Id prefer a president who doesn't suck up to dictators while alienating our allies.

There's an effect where whomever's president isn't in power is more vocally and visibly angry (note how Fecal's photo's are almost all tea party era). Antifa wasn't really a household name until Trump got elected. Coincidence? Both extremes have really funny contradictions built into them: hard righties need to keep their right to bear arms to defend themselves against a government that they (partially) hate while professing patriotism, while hard lefties want to abolish the government because its services the are not being distributed in a fair matter. Funny! I'd venture to say that while the right has a larger number of angry people, the angry people on the left are way angrier. Fecal, this is your cue.

Of course, it's easy to be cool when your team is winning.

White power !

If you can't beat em, join em!

Can I get in on the club with my 25% Jew status?

White people like the jews right?


A threat response is a potent trigger for motivated reasoning.
