Athletes should just shut up and play. Celebrities should just shut up and act/sing.

Non-Christian conservatives should just shut up and convert to the right religion.

Black people should just shut up and "comply" with contradictory orders that they only have a split second to process or else.

Liberals should just shut up, period.

Democrats should just shut up and let Trump enact his agenda.

Everyone outside of the US except for Putin should just shut up about the US.

And students should just shut up and get shot.

Am I missing anyone?

Welcome to Trump's America.

5. and one actually trained in politics is either an "ivory tower elitist" and/or a "career politician"

they've got an insult for any democrat at the ready, and they're eager to shut us down.

of course, right-wing celebrities are fine (donnie, ronnie, etc.), christian athletes are fine (tebow), etc.


we on the left make the mistake of trying to make logical sense of the crap they spew. it's all about loyalty for them. if you're on the left, they insult you, and the important thing is that they insult you and shut you down. there's no logic, not even an attempt at it. there's little to no truth, they don't care about that.

it's all about loyalty. cheer our side, insult their side.

that's all there is to it for them.

yay us!

boo them!

7. Yep, I have actually seen conversations with this formula

Guy they like says X: They repeat it, defend it, treat it as gospel, rationalize it, etc.

Guy they don't like says the same thing: That person is the antichrist.

Case in point: Both Reagan and Obama called the holocaust "senseless". Three guesses who was called callous and ignorant of history.
