    Scouring the country to find another black supporter. I knew he'd find an idiot to replace Omarosa.

    But wait, she's MLK's niece. She shares 25% of the same DNA! Therefore, um...... not sure where I was going with that..... nevermind.

    You mean like “All Trump supporters are racist Nazis”? That’s pretty commonly bandied about around this forum, and it’s wrong.

    And that comes from someone who is definitely not a Trump supporter.

    Not saying you have said that. Just that it doesn’t seem to be a problem using broad brushes around here against Trump and his supporters.

    I actually saw many many liberals calling out str8line for calling people Nazis. Even for calling the president a Nazi.
    Did you miss that?

    As for me, I tend to talk about individuals rather than generalizing groups of people as all being the same.

    Could people support Hitler without being Nazis? Could people support Mussolini without being Fascists? Can people support Trump without being assholes? Or since he's a fascist, without being considered fascists?

    That’s how it should be IMO. Broad generalization just divide people further, and cause them to dig in to extreme views instead of finding the areas where our beliefs overlap.

    The partisan gap is ridiculous right now. I can see why so many people actually identify as independent or undecided. If you pick a side, you’re instantly vilified.

    I really hate some of the rhetoric coming from both sides. I don’t think Trump’s constant tweeting is helpful, and I don’t like all the “naming and shaming” ******** that’s going on. I don’t think it is a good move at all. Castro’s decision to shine a light on Trump donors was a bitch move, and would be just as despicable if Trump did it. He should take the tweet down and apologize.

    Actually, I think there are a total of 2 users who are saying that (str8line and Eenie-Meenie). Try not to melt.

    Not melting. Just think some people in general need to tone down the rhetoric on both sides.

    I’m not a Trump fan, didn’t vote for him. . . but I can’t stand the AOC / Bernie / Warren wing of the Democratic Party.

    Nominating someone like that is a sure fire way to get people like me to start thinking about voting Trump. Trying to “name and shame” Trump voters and supporters and then calling them Nazis, racist or posting their public informations so the nutjobs can harass and threaten them is not how you win the argument.

    I actually did miss a lot of the recent responses. Was basing my comment on things I had seen earlier and elsewhere in these threads. Kudos to those who spoke out for coming right out and saying that it’s not good to paint Trump fans or even Trump as Nazis.

    What does Trump try and do? Insult, bully, and be-little? You like that strategy more?

    Your post comes across as saying I would rather vote for a candidate that acts like an ******* and douchebag than a candidate that calls someone out for acting like an ******* and a douchebag

    I don’t like Trump, but I don’t think he is a tyrant, a Nazi, an authoritarian or a white supremacist.

    He’s not a guy that I would vote for, unless the person running against him is a leftist who advocates for a bunch of things that I’m fundamentally against and then calls me a villain, or a racist or a Nazi because I disagree with them.
