13126781, whats it going to take to get 45* supporters to turn?
Posted by double negative, Fri Feb-17-17 02:30 PM
Anytime an embarrassing gaffe, statement or stance comes from 45*'s sadministration I can't help but damn near obsessively read through comments to see if people are finally getting it.

-Bad news comes down the pipe line, they scream "fake news" (which, by the way is up there with "cuck" on the short list of cringe newly created inducing words.

-Kellyanne Conway and her inability to make a true statement - crickets.

-Kellyanne Conway's ban from news shows - they scream (ironically) "This is sexism!"

The responses of 45*'s supporters have become numb and reduced to auto responses. You can damn near play bingo with the limited set of responses they use which stem from 45*'s response to things.

They want to blame the mainstream media for lying but when faced with facts from the horse's mouth direct and unfiltered no response is to be found.

When blocked in with facts they dodge...
"Well, the KKK actually started out as..."
"Actually they were democrats...TAKE THAT LIBTARDS"

I'm going to guess never, but I'm optimistically searching for a line in the sand.

For a large enough population of white people there's absolutely nothing that a white man backed up by other white people can do wrong that won't be "well THEY would've done worse"
13126790, this is baked into the foundation of america.

It's like asking men to whole-scale give up patriarchy.

It's just not happening.

13126791, Nothing. You never want to admit that you picked wrong
Posted by PimpTrickGangstaClik, Fri Feb-17-17 02:40 PM
Any evidence indicating that you possibly made a bad decision feels like an attack on your judgement and intelligence. So you try to protect yourself by rationalizing and justifying.

And it's not a phenomenon unique to Trump people. For example, the roll out to Obamacare was a disaster. But Obama supporters (me included) were in their battle trenches swatting away all criticism
13126792, thats deep

13126825, Nixon won re-election by a landslide.
Posted by Buddy_Gilapagos, Fri Feb-17-17 03:04 PM
2 years later he was impeached with a 25% approval rating.

There will always be a 25% that support him no matter what. But those people alone didn't get him elected.

Posted by tha_scientist, Fri Feb-17-17 02:57 PM
But only if it is a white kid.
If it is a Black/Brown kid, they may say use it as a reason to say that he is not a racist!

a 50% plunge in the S&P 500, losing a home and getting laid off again oughta do it... like '07-'08.

god bless da coalminerz who really think they jobs is coming back 'cause of (non-existant) coal demand.
13126897, it really seems like nothing could happen to make them stop
Posted by makaveli, Fri Feb-17-17 03:52 PM
supporting him, it is a little scary.
13126952, They need to personally feel screwed over
Posted by Y2Flound, Fri Feb-17-17 04:49 PM
Not told they are getting screwed over by other people, not hearing other people talk about getting screwed over.

It has to be them and they have to see it effect them. It's a selfish need that got them to support him in the first place.
13126993, "Support" is the wrong word for that group, it's subservience

13127043, A life threatening experience or empathy
Posted by handle, Fri Feb-17-17 10:27 PM
A life threatening incident would be something like surviving an air plane crash, or a car crash, or an earthquake. That can reset the brain sometimes.

Or if Trump does something directly TO THEM or someone they love. Like if Trump outlawed being a chickenshit redneck - then some of those people would turn.

But if you follow Trump now you're either:
1)A fucking rube
2)Cynical - and using his incompetence to your advantage.

I'm pretty sure the dissonance is way too strong at this point to do anything but further polarize things

13127067, there are no "moderates" left over there

13127073, Pardon OJ and proclaim Obama the Greatest President in history.
Posted by Kira, Sat Feb-18-17 07:40 AM
Grant OJ a full pardon and proclaim Obama the GOAT. His supporters turn on him 24 hours later.
13127075, Many already have, unless you specifically mean the hardcores
Posted by Jon, Sat Feb-18-17 07:57 AM
13127084, A lot of folks already hit it. Anything that's positive for black folks
Posted by Atillah Moor, Sat Feb-18-17 09:28 AM
