  1. This documentary is really cringey to me.

    The maneuver with Carrier wasreally smartas far as PRgoes, but it ultimatelyonlyamounts to symbolism. Trump is not about to embark on a heroic tour around the U.S striking "deals" (AKA throwing tax incentives at every business that claims it's taking jobs overseas)with factories. @downzy I read that 1000 of 1400 Carrier jobs are staying in Indiana. This doesnt really matter as far as your or my thoughtsof the situation gobut I'm just curiouswhere you got your numbers.

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/22/politics/donald-trump-climate-change-new-york-times/ Trump's changed his mind- whereas he previously said thatclimate change is a hoax, he now says that he "thinks there is some connectivity" between human activity and climate change. While I'm glad that he has moved away from calling it a hoax, it still gets me thathe uses the phrase "I think" - there is nothing for you to fucking think through, this has been agreed upon by over 97% of scientists who went to university for years and have devoted their lives' work to science. The amount of arrogance it takes for someone with no scientific background whatsoever to doubt the entire scientific community and the research they've done is outstanding. Somewhere down the line, a segment of conservatives started to push the narrative that science is a liberal conspiracy. It's maddening.

    I know, I'm not sure if I wasn't clear with what I was saying. I was pointing out that he receives such harsh judgmentover his immigration policy not because of liberal hypocrisy butbecause of the context surrounding it - the controversial comments made about immigrants during his campaign, the way he ignited people's xenophobia,the wall which seems logistically silly in many ways, etc. Despite the fact that, as you started to point out, what he's suggesting now is not very radical and is relatively not much harsher than Obama's handling of immigrants. Not to mention, Trump's tone on immigration during his campaign was much more aggressive than his tone now.

He wasted no time in conceiving his own model, whose spirit was very well defined when we discussed it with him. We have created it for him. This is his watch, exactly as he designed it. We are particularly proud of it.” Rose has already been wearing the watch on stage.

    I agree thatthere is a point to be made about how Obama's deportation numbers have been completely ignored by many liberals (and also ignored by many conservatives who believe the narrativethatObama is doing absolutely nothing about illegal immigrants), but youhave to consider context here. Their deportation policies don't exist in a vacuum. If Trump merely said that he plannedto deport more criminalimmigrants, without makingxenophobic commentsto divide the country and playing on peoples' fears throughout his entire campaign, then people would probably not judge his entire stance on immigration so in the way that they do.

    @Axl owns dexterI was in the middle of responding but then @classicrawkerdid. Liberals aren't pulling these accusations out of thin air. They are accusing people with racist backgrounds (Bannon for running Breitbart, Sessions due to the things listed in the article that Classicrawker posted, which would be corroborated by further research) of being racists. People being accused of racism for havingbehavedlike racistsis not a liberal conspiracy, man. There are plenty of other Trump appointees that have not been accused of being racists.

    They have so far refused to releasethe report detailing their statistics and measurement mechanisms to journalists, claiming they want the public to see it at the same time that the media does. We'll see if the report confirms theallegations, assuming it is released.

    During his campaign, Trump said he would protect the LGBT community and also thathe would overturn federal gay marriage rights and bring it back to being the choice of the state, so his stance was unclear and depended upon who he was talking to. Afew days ago, however, he said that it is actually "settled law" and that he will not pursue taking away federal gay marriage rights. Perhaps you should tell your aunt that and see how she responds, lol. Kindof a good example about how for many people, this electionwas just a culture war with people not researchingcandidates' policies but instead just voting for the one that they assumed to be on their "team" in terms of values.

    It's a very serious issue. Most people either don't know how to assess whether a source on the internet is credible or, more often I suspect, simply don't care. For many people, the only criteria used to determine whether a source is legitimate is whether or not the given article helps to confirm the person's prior opinions or worldview.This is how we have ridiculously hypocritical situations like people sharing Breitbart articles about how CNN is the "Clinton News Network" (not to deny that CNN is biased and provided selective coverage, though)...meanwhile Breitbart is fucking owned by Donald Trump's campaign CEO. People really need to consider the sources of what they're reading and sharing on social media. It's a shitshow. The amount of access the internet has granted people to incorrect or heavily skewed information that supports their worldview (which is the information that people will usually gravitate towards) is extremely toxic for political discourse and elections.

    Ben Shapiro, a reporter who worked with Andrew Breitbart, hassaid that Andrew wouldbe upset with what Breitbart has become under Bannon's control. There is just no waytojudge Stephen Bannon through Andrew Breitbart. I don't see how the Seinfeld thing should change anyone's feelings on Bannon's appointment, or if that's even what you're suggesting (I'm aware that you're just responding to Arnold's suggestion that he may be an actual neo nazi). At best, Trump's Chief Strategist is not actually a racistwhite nationalist, he merely owns and operates a news platform which has become the home for racistwhite nationalist sentiments. The distinction doesn't mean all that much to me. "Neo-nazi" may be an exaggeration but the core sentiment still rings true.
  12. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Neo nazi might be harsh, but I feel confidentlabeling him a white nationalist. His ownership of Breitbart and the articles that he allows to be published on there make it clear. Breitbart assertswhite nationalism and xenophobia as a response to PC culture.
  13. US Politics/Elections Thread

    And they said Trump couldn't be "bought"...this is how Trump is paying back Bannon for turning his website into a dedicated arm of Trump's campaign. That man should have no place near government. His appointment as Chief of Strategy is SERIOUSLY concerning.

    "Same-sex marriage is an issue that should have been decided by the states." -Sep 16, 2016 He has also expressed support for the First Amendment Defense Act which would allow businesses to discriminate against gay people on the basis of religious freedom. So during his campaign, I suppose his stance on LGBT rightsdepended on who he was speaking to at the time.

    I'm sure it was the mindset of some people. But the promise of the wall was something that excited a lot of people at his rallies, it was one of his key talking points. And being against gay marriage is important to many conservatives as well.He also said he no longer plans on prosecuting HIllary Clinton, referring to her family as "good people". Going after Clinton was another thing that excited a portionof his supporters. Furthermore, he portrayed himself as the anti establishment candidate, but after spending time in Washington has since learned that he cannot "drain the swamp" as easily as he might've imagined (or as he promised) - in fact, the RNC chair is now his Chief of Staff which is about as establishment as it gets. Some of these turnarounds are, as you said, simply overstating one's capabilities during a campaign, but they were important features of his platform to many of his supporters and it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.
