Thread: Can American conservatism survive intact & unadulterated?

  1. #331
    Its understood that you're too lazy to actually read the thread but there were few remarks made about this being related to the teens being trump supporters. As has already been linked to and discussed, the hats are seen as a symbol of hate and racism, not just a political advertisement. One of the reasons the Twitter accounts got so popular so quickly is because people we're pointing out where the kids were sneaking in the white power symbol that 4chan made popular.

    Now if you're seeing a connection between what the hat has come to mean and your average trump supporter, well, reality can be a bitch some times.

    Oh my god you actually think the OK/PERFECT emoji is a symbol of white power? You don't understand 4chan at all do you?

    I wonder if those boys are old enough to shave, or if they've seen those Gillette ads.

    There's that total lack of comprehension popping up again. It's almost as if you use it as an excuse to not defend your claims.

    I don't know who's dumber—the "lol u can't have a bachelor of arts in a science" guy, or the irredeemable meatheads that voted him into Congress. It's a tight race.

    Wow. There aren't enough Picard Facepalms on the internet to respond to that one.

    The sheer shock of “Are you serious? Is this really serious? This is really happening here?” . . . Welcome to 2019.

    Modern American conservatism has become sad and kinda gross:

    The 'traditional' Republican Party is dead. It's been replaced by Trumpistas...who don't give a damn about fiscal responsibility, budget debts or deficits, "Free Markets", limits on Executive Powers, or even Rule of Law. Those things used be bedrock principles of 'conservatives', but their fit within the GOP has disappeared as it became the Trump Party.

    The Trump Party wants to keep 'conservatives' under their wing by convincing them that they share a cultural identity. Since we've embraced identity politics, that makes sense as a strategy -- and Trump is a master at taking the pulse of society, and exploiting it -- because he's an entertainer and brilliant scam artist.

    He knows we have short attention spans, prefer to get our "news" in short bursts (from friends of friends on social media, or from Fox & Friends on Fox News), and we like to be entertained. Memes and tropes work well. Just don't dig too deep into the weeds, facts might burst the bubble.

    The Trump Dynasty will create a New Republican Party....while preserving "conservative" values.
