Trump is going to personally ruin my life

I don't like Trump. I don't like him for a number of reasons. I think he's a poster child for the wealthy elite that have been causing so many problems within our country. I think he's personally not very likable. There's enough reasons not to like the guy, certainly enough to not want to elect him to the highest office in the country.

But for some reason our SJW friends don't seem to be able to stop there and call it a day. The reality of Trump has given way to the caricature built up by his opposition. Trump is sexist, racist, bigoted, misogynistic, and hateful in every way. Not only that, but other people who are sexist, racist, bigoted, misogynistic, and hateful in every way are empowered by him.

You can see where I get a little turned off with the Trump hate. It's a strange feeling being both ambivalent towards the man, and at the same time mistrustful of his opposition. South Park really has the monopoly on this metaphor, but we're choosing between a turd sandwich and a giant douche. Why is that such a polarizing choice?

Hearing Trump called all these isms is kind of like hearing someone argue that the turd sandwich is bad because it's moldy. It's easy enough to dislike a turd sandwich on it's own merits. When extra insult starts getting tacked on, it seems like the opposition starts to hold less weight.

So why all the superfluous hate? I think this is more than a case of SJW's getting carried away with their arguments. I think this is an attempt to shoehorn their unrelated concerns into the argument. They're hooking their wagon to the election caravan with full knowledge that win or lose, the american people will see social justice as a real issue.

Let me break it down for you like this, buy tacking sexism, racism, bigotry, misogyny, and hate to trump, the SJW crowd can claim those factors played a primary role in the direction of the election. If trump loses its because he was sexist, racist, bigoted, misogynistic, and hateful. if Trump wins it's because america is sexist, racist, bigoted, misogynistic, and hateful. See? Win win.

People who were firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp before the primary have now begrudgingly gone to Hillary because "Trump is going to make life so much worse for [insert minority group]". There is a fear that trump is going to singlehandedly reverse all social progress that has been made over the past century and we will return to a dark age in which gays are excited, blacks are segregated, and women are left to cook in the kitchen. The oppression is real and it will get so much worse!

The sexist/racist/misogynist etc stuff started probably naturally, when a lot of milquetoast people in the country saw the segment CNN cut from Donald's announcement of his run for presidency, where he said bad things about bad people coming from Mexico - so it was an "in" the media saw to assure that many, many Americans would hate him off the bat. Americans are socially conditioned from a young age to be incredibly sensitive about race issues so it was an easy pull. I saw through it because I had been left aghast at the lack of accuracy with the Michael Brown reporting and realized that race-baiting was a real thing the media did for the elites' ends. The media continues to use it for their own ends: basically, the way I understand it, Hillary is the pawn of the elite, and Trump is trolling their plans.

The left has been busy reliving the civil rights movement since the moment the world moved on.

They make it their job to over-react and feel as if they're under attack, regardless of their objective reality.

Don't sweat it.

This really won't change anything about your daily life.

Right on. The first time I saw this perspective was when I read Ann Coulter's "Mugged"; curious how you came to that conclusion yourself? Did you grow up Republican or do your own research etc?

I observed it when I went to college in the late '90s. The modern Marxist paradigm that infects everything aside from hard sciences is Marxism + 1960s liberals.

I'm sure there's a name for it, but I'm not a political scientist and won't bothering to look it up.

Bottom line, they look for racism, sexism, capitalism, and then they attack. Programmed, instinctive response. They make a living doing this.

If you read Marx, then read the history of the counterculture, then spent time on a college campus at any point in the last 40 years and paid attention to what's going on around you, it's pretty fucking evident.

I was, technically, raised by parents who would have been hippies if they were slightly older. Not sure what you'd call them, but similar mindset.

Off-topic, but you said "dark age in which gays are excited" and I almost started to consider the concept until I realized it was a typo.

Saying that SJW's tack these things onto Trump for win/win is about the same as how you said Trump is going to personally ruin your life. They're both in the vein of dramatic words and statements being pushed for sake of hopefully being taken more seriously, but end up having the opposite effect.

Not to disregard your content, but I'm confused as to how Trump is going to personally ruin your life. You didn't really explain this part very well.

Outside of that, I disagree that SJW's started this. a lot of News Networks are bought and sold largely by The Clintons and have every reason to support her over Trump, which includes outright lying and painting him in the worst possible light, even if it means bending the truth sideways and using strong words. I think the SJW's picking up on it was just something that "happened" and wasn't initially intentional, but ended up being something the media pushed onto their agenda because they knew it would help their anti-Trump message if they could get more people on board, and being an SJW is all the rage right now.

Whoever wins, America loses. This is one of the more unfortunate elections we've ever had. You either have a criminal responsible for the death of several people who is bought and sold by George Soros and the Saudis, this same person who, whenever someone directly opposes her, seems to die in mysterious barbell accidents or abruptly decides to commit suicide, and other such shady mafia-style tactics while sharing the last name of Rapin' Bill. America does not win if she wins.

But, likewise, perhaps America does not win if Trump wins either. He's said mean things and made strict business decisions because he could. He's said some questionable things and has claimed he's never said things that he has, in fact, said. But, I think it's easy to see how Clinton would much sooner personally ruin your life than Trump ever would. When the refugee floodgates open because of Clinton, prepare for war.

As an aside, if you're titling it that Trump is going to personally ruin your life as an SJW mock-quote, then quotation marks would definitely help the case of this not seeming like you yourself feel like Trump is personally going to ruin your life, because I'm still very confused by that.

Yeah my FB feed tells me that most liberals cannot judge Trump rationally. Today is a perfect example. He basically came out and said he was washing his hands of repeal and replace (for the moment) if the House did not take a vote today, which he knew they would not because they don't have the votes to pass it, and leave Obamacare in place. You would think "I am choosing to leave Obamacare in place and am moving on to other things" would be a positive thing, if you're a liberal and/or you just like you're Obamacare. But he'll never get any credit for it, because he's the Devil and everything he does is bad.
