Anonymous A started this discussion 10 months ago #59,146

And by the way, the ACA isn't a civil liberty. Defunding Planned Parenthood of Federal tax cash isn't an assault on civil liberties. I could go on.

Y'all take care now, snowflakes.

As I said, when a single one of these things actually happens, get back to me, you'll have my full support. Until then, try to distinguish between 'populist rabble-rousing' and 'things the SCOTUS would shoot down within minutes".

No, it really didn't. Unless forcing people to pay for something they may not want (otherwise known as 'extortion') is what is now considered a 'civil liberty' in America.

...you're making this post on the third day of his presidency, and your criticism is that destruction of civil liberties hasn't happened yet, so the anti-trumpers are retards?

Given that Trump has the opportunity to swing the balance of the Supreme Court, that recent administrations have carried out fully unconstitutional policies on detention and wiretapping, and that it can take years for a case to be heard by the Supreme Court, how exactly is this concern "snowflakery"?

No, my 'criticism' (which is closer to mockery than criticism) is that the anti-Trumpers have absolutely no idea how their own governmental system works.

> Given that Trump has the opportunity to swing the balance of the Supreme Court

You mean to a Republican-dominated right-wing Court? Shit, that's never happened before, has it? And yet Roe v Wade (one example from literally thousands) still stands.

> that recent administrations have carried out fully unconstitutional policies on detention and wiretapping

And did you notice all those sinister Tea Partiers and Republicans marching in the streets crying about it? No, me neither.

> and that it can take years for a case to be heard by the Supreme Court

You've made my own point here, so thanks I guess.

> how exactly is this concern "snowflakery"?

If he does literally any of the most popular things he promised, he will be hurting America. I didn't protest, and I probably won't unless he REALLY fucks up but to ignore the danger that Trump presents to America is sticking your head in the sand.

He doesn't want to stay in power. Trump is praying for 2020 as hard as anyone.

There is no danger that exists now that did not exist for the past 8 years. Only now your mainstream media (minus FOX) is starting to crow about it because their side lost. Liberal fascism - the rabid 'intolerance of intolerance' - is every bit as dangerous and silencing as all the dumb shit Trump and his fanbase have been saying.

I'm not anti-intellectual, I'm derisive of people who preface an opinion on the internet by listing their education and how many times they watch C-Span (while actually misspelling it by the way).

My education doesn't matter, squeegee. This is the internet. I could say I have a PhD from Cambridge or I dropped out of high school. What difference does it make? Focus on the arguments being written. Do they hold water on their own, devoid of boasts about who went to which university?

Really? Sending death threats to the couple who politely declined to bake a cake for the gay couple is "a defence against intolerance"? Threatening to kill the florist who didn't want to serve the wedding of the gay couple was liberal tolerance in action? Who decided what kind of hate is now acceptable? Which meeting did I miss?

By the way, notice please how inexorably you millennials form your mob, your rabble. Look how, almost exactly at the same time when you started to feel a bit threatened, you both switched from the singular pronoun to the plural (from "I" to "we", in case that confused you). It's almost a part of the liberal DNA to gravitate towards an angry mob whenever someone dares challenge their ideas. Why can you never just stand on your own feet and debate your ideas instead of looking for security and safety from those around you?

when you cherry pick examples and generalize them across an entire political spectrum, yep, those don't count. now, fining them for discrimination is a proper example of liberal intolerance of intolerant ideals despite that not being tolerant of intolerance. that's actual political action, not your silly little cherry picked examples of individual action.

it's also pretty funny you decry liberals for interchanging "i" and "we" when the right constantly conflates the actions of the few with the beliefs of the many.

Concrete and demonstrable examples are not 'generalisations'. Try to understand the terms you're using.

Bemoans 'generalisations'. Goes on to generalise. And liberals wonder why the civilised world is laughing at them right now.
