Why do we let it pass when we are called the Democrat Party? We know they are demeaning us when they use it. I hear it in television interviews and democrats just let it pass. How hard would it be to correct it?
To be civil, we could pretend it was an honest mistake. Just a quick correction like you would if they had called you by the wrong name. If the situation called for it, we could even slip in a half-hidden patronizing or condescending tone.
It is so offensive. And it's aggressively rude. And we just take it. Why?
annoying 10 year old boys who really enjoy watching people when they piss them off.
I am convinced they literally sit around thinking of ways to behave like even bigger assholes; how to develop the whiniest insults; how to sneer even more condescendingly, and how to piss away even more of their dignity (actually I'd say the barrel is empty there).
Democrat is a noun. They use it as an adjective. It makes them sound idiotic, IMO.
with them is that they know shade because they know that Democrats will never fight back. That is how Drumpf operates. Name calling is a part of their signature means of opposition. To fight back is not to wallow in the dirt with them but to challenge them at what they know best.
I can't promise I wouldn't have backed out without posting, though, because I wouldn't want to embarrass you on DU. But it actually angers me when I hear it or read it.
and keep asking until they correct themselves. I rarely get that problem twice from the same person.
and that works because 2) people let them get them off message because people let it irritate them.
Solution: Dont let them sidetrack the discussion and dont give them the satisfaction of irritating you.
