I actually had said the same thing many times myself in this thread in the last few years. Good luck having ' some members of the left' believe that though, trust me I tried. In fact, even when making it clears many time that I'm not supporting Trump, not voting for him, and criticize him (when warranted), just the fact I refuse to get on the Trump basing bandwagon that had been accused of being a Trump enabler and support, both directly and indirectly in this thread.
This is very true, and exactly part of the message I'm trying to say. I don't know about the UK, but from the look of it it's more even there in term of public pressure for both side. If anything the US's liberal has been extremely successful at - and that they had managed to create a basically one-sided public narrative, a political correctness system that is openly hostile to anyone that oppose them. But I think that also creates an achilles heel for them. I had also discussed about the available of platforms and when people perceived they don't have one, it's not hard to convince themselves an alliance of convenience is necessary, even with a devil to fight even a greater evil. Now, the question what people perceive as the "greater evil".Observe wrote: ↑Fri, 17. Jan 20, 22:02Besides, it's not really about Trump, as much as it is about what many people see in him. They see someone who is building a wall against the liberalization of America. The list of things they are not happy with how things have been heading, is a very long list. They couldn't care less whether their standard barer is a pompous egomaniac or the next Saint. To them, liberals spell anathema to everything holy and decent about American life.
An example for me personally is this: the Kevanaugh's hearing. Even now, this is still the single most damaging instance for Democrat/Liberal for someone with my standard. Beyond any politic, social equality, question of character ...etc... to me specifically the principal "innocent until proven guilty" is an overriding priority above all else, including all those mishap Trump got slapped on in an almost daily basic. When and if I perceive a political party or individual seem to threaten this one particular value, it may trigger a reaction from me to prevent its violation even if it means signing a deal with the devil.
And I know I'm not the only one with this mindset, people who carry prejudice or conditioned to a specific mindset tend to focus on one event at a time, and moving one from another. But a lot of us look at the undercurrent and trend over long period.
