3. Why do we water down the language to "You have issues with women?" Why do we not

say "You are a sexist?"

I have issues with spiders. That doesn't mean that I work for the subjugation of spiders. Trump voters work for the subjugation of women. Can we please stop watering down this issue?

8. Yes, every woman that voted for trump is a sexist. Just as every person

of color who voted for him is a racist.

He is a serial abuser of women. If you voted for him, you are condoning the serial abuse of women. So yes, if you voted for him you are a sexist.

22. But they wouldn't be willfully sexist if...

... they were operating under the belief that the tales of his sexual misconduct were just lies from the "liberal media."

Many of these people live in a false reality where they are seriously misinformed.

26. They heard his own words from his own mouth. If they heard his own words saying

he was a serial molester of women and then they voted for him, they knowingly voted for a serial molester of women. They are, by definition and at the very least, sexists.

Why do people work so hard to deny this uncontestable fact?

39. Even your assertions says *if* they heard his own words.

I think you give many of his supporters way too much credit for supposedly paying attention.

Unfortunately, I think many of them simply knew they weren't going to vote for the Democrat, or knew they weren't going to vote for Hillary... and any mention they might've ever heard of ANY of his sins and crimes was only in the context of a denial against "the liberal media."

10. A: Yes. And black people can be white supremecists. It's all in the upbringing.

When you are raised in a culture that teaches you from day one that men are your superiors by divine decree, unless you get really lucky you know no other way of seeing the world.

7. Nope.

Desperate, skill value plummeting, families falling apart. They were spooked into a stampede by ISIS, Putin, and the Republicans. They are thinking "run for the lifeboats," and they don't care about anyone's opinion concerning how they get there. Will they do evil? Damn right they will.

No one's going to shame anyone into anything. If we are going to establish the liberal, sustainable, just, human-centric philosophy we all know is right, we will not do it by emotional "force." We won't do it by rhetoric, at least not the weak tea rhetoric we currently use. We are going to have to bribe people with a better world.

9. And yet there are plenty who are desperate, skill value plummeting, families falling apart who

who saw through his bull and didn't vote for him and against their own self interest.

So what is different about these people?

This is not about shaming anyone. This is about knowing who we are dealing with. It is important to realize that these self-evident characteristics are true so we don't make the mistake of losing our souls trying to woo them and we don't misunderstand what they are.

31. what is different

They watch Fox news. They, like the proverbial frog in a pot, have been watching Fox for so long, they are brainwashed, and are inoculated against facts and logic. I got a couple of them in my family. When I refute their pronouncements with facts, references, and reason, they respond with, "we'll have to agree to disagree." IOW, they aren't going to change their minds even though they have been told the truth....

33. What made them start watching Fox news, when you never did? Bigotry and sexism.

It always comes back around to a willingness to believe what confirms one's bigotry and sexism.

That's why the message is so durable, even among intelligent people and even when the message is provably false. Because the message is not what they are there for. They are there for confirmation of their bigotry and sexism. You could put Hillary's plans that would benefit them on their breakfast plate with a personalized invitation to read it, and they will STILL say that she would do nothing to benefit them.

This is why we cannot waste time trying to win those people over. We will not. We are wasting our time with all our handwringing about how we wronged the rust belt white working class. We need to move on to the heretofore disinterested. That is where our votes will come from.

I heard that somewhere before, and then a DUer posted it again recently, which is why it was fresh in my mind.

18. You are scared

People don't think well when they are scared, even people who usually have very good critical thinking skills. Trump gave them targets for their fears, Mexicans, Muslims etc and told them he would make them go away. He would take on those bad, evil politicians and money grubbing Wall Street guys and make them go away too. If you're scared enough, you'll believe just about anything. Sadly, very, very sadly they completely missed the fact that Trump is the scariest thing of all.

Anyone who thinks that a billionaire who outsources his own company's work overseas and has cheated thousands of people he's done business with would actually care about working class people's problems is in la-la land. They are truly not in touch with reality.

34. Gob-smacking confusion over "person" in that writing. Did they go to school?

The headline say "they" meaning tRump supporters, and "you" meaning the reader.

But the 7 points totally contradict that by switching "you" to mean the tRump supporters.

The reader experiences cognitive dissonance and thus the writer is less effective with the points.

... Let alone the shouting all caps bogosity.
