Re: Enjoy your righteous posturing while you can
What's really interesting is that you didn't bother to actually quote anything I actually said. If you had, you might have noticed that I was replying to xiphias who described themself as a member of the "coastal elites". My response was to people like them, and not a blanket condemnation of "all Hillary Clinton supporters".

Finally: once a person is evil enough, it's quite natural to ask what kind of person will support that person with great power and huge responsibilities. Thinking of "all Trump supporters" as bigots is idiocy. Thinking they're all *okay* with bigotry, serial sexual assault, and the use of law enforcement to punish a person one dislikes - okay enough to put such a person in the highest executive office in the land - is a bit more defensible.

You could make the argument, but I still think it's an idiotic one. Unless you would also accept the argument that all Hillary supporters *okay* with wars of aggression and the mass murder of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of brown peolple who pose no threat to the USA whatsoever.

It's still factually incorrect, though. A great many Trump supporters don't think about those things and don't care.

Ah. A great many Clinton supporters don't think about those things and don't care. Got it. Kind of like they don't think or care about "those" people that xiphias thinks "...us coastal elites are [and should be] keeping ... down."

I might have noticed something if you'd written clearly about your beef. But you didn't. And I've gotten too old to listen to whiners who complain about how they're are SO MISUNDERSTOOD when they refuse to engage in productive dialogue.

Technically, that happened at the age of 13-15 - somewhere in that age range, farting is no longer hilarious social commentary. Alas, I did listen to them for years after that - such a waste!

See? Quoting someone can still mean the point goes *WHOOSH* over your head. And it's made clear by the quote. Which is kinda doubly ironic.
