    Hey guys and gals.

    I’ve been kind of a political junkie since I watched my first presidential debate between Reagan and Carter in 1980. I got to cast my very first vote for Reagan in 1984.

    Since then I’ve been an observer in all things political. Just so you know, I’m a conservative, always have been. I also will vote the 2nd time for Trump. This country is finished if he loses.


    Anyway, me and a few buddies back home text every night and discuss the politics and other things in the news. They too believe as I do.
    One topic that comes up often is the state of our political system. It’s vicious. Those on the left think nothing of destroying everything about a person simply because they wear a MAGA hat or have a sign in their yard.

    One of the things that has really stumped me is where does the sheer vicious hatred for Donald Trump come from? I saw what things were like when Reagan was in office. They didn’t like him, but he was respected and it was mostly civil. There was nothing like what Trump has to deal with on a daily basis. This hatred is something our country has never had before. I would like to know where it comes from and why they hate him so much. I can’t find anything that he’s said or done to bring it about. It’s gotta be something else.

    This man had a successful TV show for 15 years. He’s been in the NYC news and tabloids for 40 years. I think we can agree that people generally liked him or at least tolerated him. The minute he’s elected...the hate starts. Not your ordinary garden variety hatred, but the industrial strength hatred.
    Those that hate Trump get up every day trying to find new ways to destroy him, his family, his businesses and his life. I just don’t understand how so many can hate a man that’s done almost nothing, so much. They actively look for ways to hurt him and his family. They hate his son, make fun of him endlessly. They hate Melania...passionately. Same goes for his family.
    My buddies laugh at me when I say this, but I honestly believe that those that are his enemies will absolutely try to send him and any other members of his family to PRISON if they can manage it. As soon as he steps out of office, within a month he’ll be indicted and arrested just because he had the audacity to beat Hillary. That’s how much these creatures hate Donald Trump.

    Do you all know why or where it comes from? Can you come up with any reasons for it? Ideas?
    I know there were plenty of people that disliked Obama, but I never saw discussions where people on the right wished him and his family dead or a stint in prison.

    I’d like to know a reason why they hate him so much.

    Whats your thoughts?
    Thanks.

    as far as this board goes, simply leftist-socialists/marxists/communists failing miserably attempting to pass themselves off as something other than their true self...

    It's easy to point at young people and say that they are just stupid and indoctrinated, but I have older relatives, lifelong Democrats. It's not like they are lacking for life experience or are fresh out of a liberal university. They have always had their views on different issues, sometimes more nuanced than others, but always relatively civilly expressed. I've known them for a long time, though.

    Many of these people just break down into irrationality and almost rage when the issue of Trump comes up. "I just don't like him." "I just can't stomach some of the things he says." "It doesn't matter, I just think he's a scumbag." To me, what the transformation has revealed, more than anything else, is just the degree to which they have gotten into the habit of ingesting and regurgitating the opinions and thoughts that the mass media have told them to think. Now they've gotten to the point where the media is telling them to think contradictory thoughts on a wide range of topics. Cognitive dissonance makes people physically uncomfortable. The discomfort needs a target to vent on. The media tells them to take out their frustrations and bad feelings via hatred for Trump. Since they never learned to think for themselves, they just do as they are told, and the rest of us have to deal with the collateral damage.

    Psychology calls it Trump Anxiety Syndrome; colloquially, we call it "Trump Derangement Syndrome." Democrats are mentally ill, and you'd have to be at least a little crazy to actually be one today. What they need is better support--family interventions, talk therapy, acknowledgement of their childhood trauma, love, in general. Sadly, most of them are stuck in social echo chambers and won't get the help they need before they take the country down with them. Don't underestimate the potential for stupid, indoctrinated Leftists to destroy a nation. Every communist revolution that has ever occurred is proof of that.

    Simple Trump Derangement Syndrome doesn’t cover it. There’s more there.
    1. I think it’s the fear of losing everything (for the deepstate).
    2. I suspect the media is following marching orders.
    3. For the Everyman I suspect they’ve all just overdosed on the koolaide .

    Elites hate him because he threatens the tax slavery gravy train. It’s my view that everyday people hate him because they’re brainwashed by the MSM - they believe everything the MSM says and they disbelieve everything the MSM refuses to cover. I have a TDS friend who fits that description.

    Oh, absolutely. The unelected, corrupt people in government and the media have nothing to gain with a populist Presidency and everything to lose. Trump won because he ran on issues that Americans actually care about and has the ability to do something about those issues. This terrifies everyone in Washington DC, since government hasn't worked like that in their lifetimes.

    This is a fun, memey analogy, but how does it work? Obviously there is no literal Democrat Kool-ade that people decide to drink.

    Follow the money. Trump has exposed China and stood up to them. They don’t own him as they have every other President since and including Richard M. Nixon. That is what this is all about.

    It's so strange too. Trump has a long track record of hiring and promoting people from all walks of life...I truly don't think he cares about a person's private life as long as they work and do their job well. I can remember when he was getting accolades from the gay community, the black community, and women's groups for his evenhanded approach to things..Hell, the Clintons couldn't wait to get into his pockets.

    Liberalism, at least as we are seeing now, is a mental disorder.

    I guess you don’t catch any of the media showing how the President is sooooooo evil; what with banning muslims, deporting and starving immigrants, putting kids in cages, cutting taxes for the rich, destroying the environment, etc...
    All of the above I mentioned is Democrat koolaide. And the masses suck it up.
    You might want to ingest a bit less!

    FIFY. Most will lose the spiritual battle. The Republic was most likely lost in 2016 despite Trump winning. I think the hatred comes from a lot of places - the media, the schools, the democrat party, etc. Ultimately you are right though, it comes from the sinful heart of man.

    SNL, all the late night
    “comedy” tv and the major news networks does it for simpletons that are not of school years. School takes care of those younger mush heads.

    According to my wife he is.........
    Racist/promotes white supremecy/against immigration
    Sexual predator
    Crooked/illegal business dealings
    Wants to disband ACA/take away affordable healthcare
    Anti women's rights/abortion

    I am sure there is more but I have been beaten over the head so much over the past year I have forgotten some of the talking points. It is ridiculous how wound up she gets everytime she reads an article or sees video of a speech from him. We have had disagreements before but Saturday she started in on it and ended with I won't respect you if you vote for him. I responded with "I am not having this conversation anymore, we are done" and basically told her I wanted a divorce. I told her that I am ok with her not agreeing with me but she becomes unhinged and I am not going to tolerate it anymore. We have talked it out, not sure if we are ou of the woods yet, we'll see.

    I dated a liberal when G.W.B was president and she was pretty rabid with disapproval for him but that was nothing compared to the T.D.S I see and read about today.

    Conservatives, using reason, are able to realize that although Trump is crude and blunt and undiplomatic, his actions are more important than his words and his accomplishments, in spite of unrelenting efforts to to cause him to fail, are many. Liberals, who use emotion in place of reason, prefer someone like Obama, who is a smooth talker and tells them things they want to hear even though his accomplishments are dubious at best.

    This is a man who was given the Nobel Peace prize for having accomplished nothing!

    And with every passing day we are learning how corrupt his administration was, yet Liberals just "Feel" that he was good president and a good person far better than Trump. And because liberals are guided by emotion, there is one emotion in particular, hate, an emotion that is all-consuming and overpowers the ability to reason, and this irrational hatred of Trump, and to some degree hatred of those who support him, becomes an obsession.

    Look at all the people who have been attacked for wearing MAGA hats or for having trump signs at their houses. Some houses have even been burned and there was the case of one farmer whose harvesting equipment was torched and another one whose horse was shot.

    These are not rational people who are doing these things.

    I believe mainly it's that he's an existential threat to leftism, and exposes its most prominent tools -- political correctness, the cancel culture, the secrecy of the Deep State, the nature of the Swamp, and the total hypocrisy and corruption of the mainstream media.

    Now that I think of it... That's a LOT... o_O

    Borg as usual I enjoy your posts on many topics. Even with your irrational fear/hate of forward slide serrations I feel like we would be pretty good friends in real life LOL.
