I've had it with MAGAts

Tired of being called libtards, scum, communists, nazis, idiots, stupid, fools. How does this help anyone? America? Us? OK, they don't give a damn about us, but how about them? Other than more rigid minds turning to stone, how does it help them? Are they richer, healthier, free-er, more beautiful? Do they have more possessions? Do they live longer? Does their hatred make them more powerful? We are a country of one people, Americans. Politicians serve everyone. Not just MAGAts. Or at least they are supposed to serve everyone. Not MAGAt politicians. THey divide and conquer. We are under invasion by invaders hiding in plain sight in political office. We have voting to do.

1. We tend to lump people into groups as a way to minimize them.

We give those groups names to accomplish the same goal.

We all seem to do that, don't we?

3. Yes, that is true.

But my sense is we are not so confrontational. You've got to push my buttons to receive a MAGAzi Moron in return. I mean you've got to call liberals every name in the book. My persona off-DU for example is quite a bit more circumspect. I might espouse American ideas, and try to adjust the political stance rather than to trounce the opposition. Trump is ratcheting up the rhetoric. We are in for a rough fight.

7. That's a nice theory... and huge "bothsiderism" bullshit

If, after what you've seen with your own eyes, and heard with your own ears over the past 4 years, you still support this absolute human scum, you deserve to be lumped into a group of scum.

This is no longer about lower taxes on the 1%, or cutting spending on things that benefit the middle class and working poor. There's a shit ton of dipshit Retrumplicans that would do that, but are still functioning members of the human race.

I happen to think those Retrumplicans are wrong about policy, but I don't find them evil, or a spawn of Satan.

At least those Retrumplicans may show love to their families, show empathy for their fellow man, show common human emotions.

Those Retrumplicans are wrong about policy, but they have something the orange hellspawns never will. Human qualities and the ability to grow.

Donnie Shit for Brains is as shallow as a cup saucer, as compassionate as a rat and as human as a rock.

My farts have more human qualities than Dipshit Donnie.

Anyone who continues to support him has surrendered their humanity. They've given up the right to be offended by being described as dipshits.

No one made them sell their fucking souls.

No one made them surrender their humanity.

They made that decision themselves.

They should consider themselves lucky that folks are just calling them MAGAts.

They would fucking kill you and your family for their political party.

We'd better wake up to that and stop with the "both sides do it" bullshit.

Call me when 100's of minorities show up at the Texas Statehouse with assault rifles and Bill Barr hanging from a noose.

Call me when 100's of LGBT people show up at the Alabama Statehouse with assault rifles and Phyllis Schafely hanging from a noose.

Until then, how DARE YOU to try to bothsiderism this MAGAt shitshow.

9. Well stated

Some are ignoring the actions of Repubs over the last thirty years AND the increasing downward spiral.

Then they suggest we disarm, "don't fight back like they do, we are better than that."

2. What they are doing does not initially appear to be rational

in the sense that it does not seem to serve their self interest. But I think they value the feeling of belonging to that more than most people understand. And it's true that they have poor prospects in every other avenue of life, so it becomes even more important to them to belong to this and have enemies to blame for their failures. So, in a sad way, it is rational. But IMO they'll be sorry they felt the need to do this because the consequences won't be in their favor in the long run, unless their ultimate objective is to destroy this country and themselves right along with it.

4. I have little sympathy for MAGA Magoos myself

This is a year that at least some of them will find out just how thoroughly their false messiah and the party they vote for are screwing them over, if they havenít already. I will watch with as little visible pity as cold, hard reality works them over with a hickory switch.

5. really

Their feelings of inadequacy have to be expressed somehow, they need to put others down in order to feel good about themselves.

6. Their name-calling doesn't really bother me. Whatever. I think

it makes them look infantile and it makes them easier to spot.

8. They're not "hinding in plain sight at all." They're openly flaunting their intolerance.

Their stupidity, rigidity, arrogance. I hate them all as much as they hate me. I wish them -- ALL -- of them ill.

10. FOXNEWS AND CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO

These two entities thrive on chaos and divide. This is how they make their money. The driving force is to instill hatred in all conservatives against anyone who thinks with a "we are the world" attitude. The "us" and "we" to a conservative means us conservatives and we conservatives. They live, eat, drink conservatism, many are simply born and bread to be conservatives. Foxnews and talk radio live to exploit this hatred. Our president, like most is also caught up in this right wing exploitation. Listen to him when he talks or read his tweets, he talk with a talk radio dialect. He too seeks to exploit the divide. The idea of unity and one country smacks of liberalism to them and working along those lines makes trump look weak and we all know he doesn't want to look weak no matter what. SO DON'T GET ANGRY, AND WHATEVER YOU DO, DO GET INTO A DISCUSSION WITH THEM, IT WON'T WORK. EVEN IF YOU SLIGHTLY CONVINCE THEM IN YOUR DIRECTION, FOXNEWS AND TALK RADIO WILL SCREW THEM UP ALL OVER AGAIN. THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM AND OUR APPROACH TO IT HAS BEEN ALL WRONG. YOUR VOICE, MY VOICE, OUR VOICES ARE NOT BEING HEARD. we are being drowned out by a noise machine that serves only to make money keeping us divided. Like I said before, until we build a communications network of democratic and liberal news and talk shows, we will have to depend on MSNBC and CNN to get the truth out there.

11. You're right, and we used to kick the same laments around in Campaign 2000

So we must not depend on corporate media to give us the platform to enlighten voters. We have grass root canvassing and legwork to do.
