Barack Obama is no longer president and the current White House Occupant Donald Trump (& some of his supporters--such as yourself) appear to be OBSESSED with Obama. Why is that? How about addressing our CURRENT PROBLEMS & ISSUES. Or instead of trolling on progressive sites, uyou could actually READ THE ARTICLES & take in some fresh perspectives. Otherwise, why waste your time & ours, when you could go back to watching Fox News,. Progressives aren't interested in parroted propaganda.
BUT - without the slurs and name calling you can not put them down...Trump has trained himself to call them all "Good Guys" - "fine up standing citizens"All the southerners are fine gentlemen . . . and don't call them Johnny Reb??
Really? Where does the muslim brotherhood fit in to Obama's great legacy for this country. Although, I do agree, Congress has been incompetant, hether, Democrat or Republican. Just a house of ealthy assholes!
I know how you feel but they are our brothers and sisters even though they vote against their own rights. We are all one even though we oppose each other. I am no Christian but All humanity are my siblings.
Obama protected the Nation against the Rich who run the oil and coal type companies. I'm sorry that when speaking out against evil it hurts people who are employed by the evil, but they were not Obamas target. Obama's health plan had flaws which needed correcting as would any new program but Obama is a Democrat, the only party that ever tries to help the people. Don't blame Obama for being blocked by by republican leaders of the rich and heartless. I will fight for you but not your greedy leaders. Obama will be declared one of the greatest Presidents because the facts support him. Rev. Douglas K. Peary
I agree that white people of both parties have mistreated black people. I am white. My son-in-law and my grandson are black and mixed race. Democrats have slipped badly but Republicans protect their own, money, and political protection for the rich and against the poor and the dark races. I was a farm boy and I heard Hillary make a strong statement against White supremacists, Ku klux klan and other such slime. I heard no general statement against rural folk in general in any sense. You are attacking our best source of hope. Please stop supporting Republicans. They already have most of your money and pride. I heard nothing by Democrats against hard working people like coal miners and oil workers. Coal and Oil are going to kill all of your children and descendents by pollution, which is the fault of rich republicans. Democrats attempts to save our future should be blamed on the business men not on the workers. Save your children from this rich business men . Fight for a better Democratic Party. I feel no attacks against me and other Rural people by Democrats. So many people vote against their own best future and it is you People. signed, Rev. Douglas Kenneth Peary
Tell me, exactly what your Obama did for this country that as POSITIVE? I ill not shut up and let the likes of you continue to destroy this nation that many of my loved ones spilled their blood to protect!
Riiiiight. Because The Orange One is so big on promoting voting rights and other civil rights. The minute black people start speaking up he calls them unpatriotic SOBs while all the time saying that the Nazis and white supremacists have some "good people" among them. STFU.
They did leave out one very often used term.."trailer trash" ould have been interesting to see what they could have conjured up on this term.
I believe you mean the Democratic party used BLACK voters for the same reason, doing the same to them! Never following through on promises made to black communities. It has been the African American citizens that have been injured by the DNC in this country! Trump and his administration have been guilty of nothing like it. Stop deflecting DNC crimes to others!
Yes,these names are perjorative, and with a damn good reason. Whether the term iswhite trash, hillbilly, or redneck- the meaning is all the same; a social class that I worked very hard to escape, and that I want nothing to do with. I studied. And reconnecting with people from that part of my life means encountering the same drama and broken social environment that there ever was. I do not feel sorry for these people. I will not reevaluate my values as a result of this election. These people are unable to compete at any sort oflevel, and yet for centuries have voted for people that are diametrically opposed to their interests.
Bigotry is the problem with rural America and those those who choose to see rural America through a scope of prejudice. Rural America is no more monolithic than urban America. Most populated, rural, red counties in rural red states, take MO for example, voted 20 - 25% Clinton. Nearly a qurater of these "slobbering, tractor boys" you so fear, decided Clinton was their choice. They went 30 - 40% for Obama in 2008. That should tell you something about your 2016 candidate. The closed minded vitriol directed at these rural counties will not win you elections.
And when rural America uses "heartland" as opposed to the others, what is that? The problem with rural America is that they are not content to lead their own lives according to their own values. They want everyone to live by their values, and it isn't going to happen. They are minority, and I'm done with their rabid Christian hypocrisy. I'd like to put them and Trump behind their wall and push them off into the gulf of Mexico. This country isn't big enough for all of us, and it is time to break it up.
Bannon and Trump both used tea party Americans like toilet paper, sucking up to them just long enough to get elected and then flushed them... no different than all the other presidents across both parties for the last 40 years and probably much longer than that.
