Ann Coulter Suggests Donald Trump Should Be Charged For Employing Undocumented Migrant Workers

Westlake Legal Group DgA1c8k-7tkFsiTbdz9utjZwj_zcfceDJLAj5KsJXxA Ann Coulter Suggests Donald Trump Should Be Charged For Employing Undocumented Migrant Workers r/politics

I mean, sure she’s a racist sack of crap, but at least she’s ideologically consistent. That’s more than you can say about the rest of the GOP.

I’m honestly kind of dumbfounded that, of all the right wing commentators, she’s the only one that’s coming out and saying “uh, guys, you do realize he’s not done any of the awful shit that we voted for, right??”

Maybe we should just take this as a sign that right-wing racism is really just the representation of a juvenile desire to feel powerful by punching down some “other.” So what if there’s no wall and he personally hires undocumented workers? They’re losing, so we must be winning, good enough!

Yes, it matters that Trump spread a lie about the Clintons murdering Jeffrey Epstein

Westlake Legal Group 6oa7RDWxo1KBRqur0pqyI0B1AUoFMJHcASrotbPM5lk Yes, it matters that Trump spread a lie about the Clintons murdering Jeffrey Epstein r/politics

Okay, let’s just put this whole GOP, Trump, Facism, the fact that his DOJ was in charge of security at this facility, etc, thing aside for a moment and just break this down.

The president of the United States is accusing a political opponent of murder – murder people, fucking murder – with zero proof.

I don’t care what side of the aisle you’re on, i dont care if you think we should have big government or small, or if people should have abortions or not, or if we should be allowed to own semi automatic weapons, and on and on, this is unacceptable for any US president. Period.

The “What happened in your state last week?” Megathread, Week 32

Welcome to the ‘What happened in your state last week’ thread, where you can post any local political news stories that you find important in the comments. This is a weekly thread posted every Monday, in order to facilitate more discussion on local issues on /r/politics. Since this is intended to be a thread about local politics, top-level comments that are exclusively about national issues will not be allowed. When commenting, please include the state you’re living in, and don’t forget to link sources. Also, please actually describe what happened. “I live in X, you know what happened” isn’t helpful to users and will be removed.

If someone from your state made a news round-up that you think is insufficient, feel free to comment to that round-up with further news stories. Enjoy discussion, and review our civility guidelines before engaging with others.


Hi there, /r/politics. Before we start, I’d like to restate the intention of this thread, which is to highlight local news. Therefore, any stories that made national news like the death of Jeffrey Epstein, stories about national politicians like the President, US Senators and US Representatives, and stories about people running for the office of President, are considered off topic for this thread. Thank you, and enjoy your day.

Anger at being labeled racist is the new ‘cultural anxiety’ for Trump supporters

Westlake Legal Group IW4jwIRPYhm3PrWc2RnHx_fH9xAy8_Sq0f3H6p4fTCE Anger at being labeled racist is the new ‘cultural anxiety’ for Trump supporters r/politics

Because what they’re all finding out is that the protection extended to Trump by congressional Republicans does not extend to his idiot supporters. Trump gets to be insulated through money and a legion of sycophants editing and curating the media he sees to constantly protect his exceedingly fragile ego. He gets a legion of congressional Republicans that know he’s a complete and utter imbecile, but in the interest of preserving their power eagerly and publicly defend his imbecility, his hate and stupidity. Trump lives in a painstakingly crafted bubble whose entire purpose is protecting him from the glaring reality that he’s racist loser with no mental capacity to do the job he never deserved in the first place.

But the Trump supporter out in the streets has no such protection. He feels the disgust and loathing of his fellow countrymen. And that’s powerful.

One of the single greatest forces acting on people in a society is the consensus and norms of their peers.

That is why you cannot let up. Do not let Trump and Republicans normalize his racism, xenophobia, and hate.

These norms can spread like a virus. We, the majority, are the herd immunity. We rebuff and make them ashamed to speak their viral hatred in person. And that is good. We cannot let them normalize this. We cannot let them be comfortable in their vile, horrid hate and racism.

I don’t know you, but you – whoever you are – you have much more power than you think. When you interact in real life with a Trump supporter, when you shame them for espousing hate, it may seem as though you get nowhere. That Trump supporter may be boisterous and prideful in his hate and anger, may seem unrepentant, but the disgust on the face of a peer does have a strong effect on them. They will remember it, and it will erode their resolve.

I can’t tell you who the best candidate for President is. But the one thing I can assure you – what we have on our side – is that Trump and the rhetoric and ideology of the Republicans is wrong. It is wrong for society, bad for humanity. It will lead to a culture that is poorer, sicker, more deprived of love and happiness and joy. It is a cancer in the body politic.

Look at the stories we see. Trump throws tantrums every other day when met with the resistance to his revolting ideas. Trump supporters are afraid to speak their hate aloud and in public. The administration is seeking an executive order just to suppress the overwhelming majority opinion on line that their ideas are vile and sick.

The illusion provided by their occupation of power can seem omnipotent, but Trump and the Republicans are far, far weaker than they seem, and they know it. And it terrifies them.

Trump has allowed these disgusting ideas to wriggle out of the rotted logs on the floor of our country. But now they’re finding they burn in the light. They thought their Imbecile Jesus had blanketed the sky in darkness for them to thrive, but he did not. We are not going anywhere, and there are a hell of a lot more of us than there are of them. They have cheated and lied and waited in the dark and in patience to scrabble together the power they have now, but do not confuse that with legitimacy. The government is nothing but the consensus of the people and they do not have our consensus merely because they can steal seats through hostile foreign interference and gerrymandering. We do not have to respect them and we do not have to allow them to exist through another election cycle. We choose.

So don’t stop. Don’t let up. Do not let trolls or loud jackasses in pickup trucks waving confederate flags get one moment of peace from our vocal condemnation of their ideas.

This is our society. Our culture. It is one of freedom for all men – an ideal that may not ever be achieved but must always be striven towards. One of the freedom for every person to pursue happiness. And at the core of the ideology of Republicans is the antithesis of that. Their ideology is one of a hierarchy of men, and not even one built on merit, but built on inheritance – the inheritance of money, the inheritance of privelege, the inheritance of a better skin color and better ancestry, the inheritance of entitlement merely from being born one place and not another. Like most of what they do, their fixation on “merit” is projection – they don’t want to have to earn or work for anything. They want respect for their gender, privilege for their race and birthplace, and most importantly, they want respect and acceptance.

That is their sickness. That is at the core of everything they think and everything they do. Reject them. Reject them everywhere you see them, everywhere you meet them. No one whose ideology is based upon denying another human being their fundamental humanity merely because they were born with blacker skin or to poorer people in a poorer country deserves any respect, and they deserve no peaceful night’s sleep without seeing and hearing the revulsion and condemnation of our many voices.

It’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder to an extreme degree

NPD is defined as comprising a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by the presence of at least 5 of the following 9 criteria:

A grandiose sense of self-importance

A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

A belief that he or she is special and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions

A need for excessive admiration

A sense of entitlement

Interpersonally exploitive behavior

A lack of empathy

Envy of others or a belief that others are envious of him or her

A demonstration of arrogant and haughty behaviors or attitudes

Pretty sure he meets all 9. Lying is just a major part of NPD, a tool used to maintain their false narrative of the world as they perceive it.
