Here's one from a LIBBERUL journalist who hasn't gone off the deep end.

Probably not a trend, but it proves it's still possible.

Bob Woodward Is Right: The Press Is 'Emotionally Unhinged' About Trump
Reason

No he hasn't turned pro-Trump.

I agree that there is certainly an element of that. Is it any wonder? I think half the country at least has become "emotionally unhinged" about the Trump presidency. He likes it that way. He's very divisive. He likes to provoke lefties, get them frothing with rage. And he's good at it. He's a divider, not a uniter.

Even though you can never please everyone, I always felt like Obama wanted to be liked by everyone. Not Trump. He wants to be loved by his base, but he also revels in being hated by the other side.

When your whole raison d’etre (hows that for “raising the tenor of the forum” Ed?) is “let’s do things to make the lefties mad, hurr hurr” you shouldn’t bitch when you successfully make the lefties mad.

Trump and his followers are the sorest winners I have ever seen

Apparently you are not interested in reducing the level of political hatred you keep complaining about.

As I said Nyarl is the political hatred he talks about, and projects on to everyone else who isn't full of hatred like he is. You can be certain that his claims of seeing all this hatred on his other social media is just as imaginary as the hatred he claims to see here. He is deranged, and psychotic.

I see exactly the kind of hatred Ny talks about. We disagree on how universal it is.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I see it too. But only in news reports and on the 'net.

Any sightings in the wild?

I've found some (ex) friends to suffer from TDS but not evincing "hatred" per se.

The only manifestations I've seen have been the ANTIFA guys.

I have facebook friends that think that upsetting their opponents makes something good.

It's very simple to understand. You have complained about there being too much political hatred in the world and then you post your own political hatred on this forum.

And then you wonder why someone might comment on that apparent "discrepancy".

If you are serious about wanting to reduce the level of political hatred on this forum, it has to start with you. I am willing to cooperate with you on this. Are you willing?

Then I would agree with you that “cookies are yummy” — no shit — same as I have agreed with various opinions you have posted over the years. (Evidences on request.)

You already did, in a passive aggressive way.

If this is your notion of how to reduce animosity and vituperation on this forum, it is not working. May I suggest you try something else.

I am willing to cooperate with you in working towards that objective. Are you willing?
