Oh. I thought they were willing to die for Trump over COVID-19. They're having second thoughts?

White America?  You mean White Nationalist America.  May they all suffer greatly.

I'm going to have a post-Trump party disorder.  My drinking may not change, but the reasons sure as hell will.

White women voted at a 52 percent clip for Donald Trump. Men voted at 63 percent.

Those number are embarrassing. And they won't change much this time. Garbage in, garbage out.

The last four years have revealed that many of my friends are far more racist then I knew. And that they are remarkably unintelligent, educations be damned.

No, post means after, and after that mango muttonhead is thrown out of office, I plan to celebrate.

I've actually noticed a lot of "troll fatigue" here on fark.

You got these one shot trolls putting out bait on multiple threads and they're not getting many hits. Like posting a thread and then posting something trolly in the comments. Expecting lots of hits...and everyone seems to be ignoring them. They probably need another cat to give them attention.

Sad.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: White women voted at a 52 percent clip for Donald Trump. Men voted at 63 percent.

Maybe after four years some people will see 45 for what he is. Also, some 8% of African-Americans voted for Trump and I just don't see that happening again, assuming they are allowed to vote. Plus the Hispanic Republican vote has to go down too, no?

Then the question becomes, has 45 cut any inroads with the white vote? It's hard to see white women supporting him more. Now, white men. Shiat. Yeah, most of us are shiatheads but there is a sizable contingent on non-shiathead white males who would never vote for him. I just don't see Trump improving on his 2016 numbers.

I think this is the second time I've seen you post this in a thread, and I want to thank you for it.

I was 16 when Flood came out. First bought the LP, but then needed the cd for the car. I spun the crap out of that album. For years and years. That song (Racist Friend) is as fresh today as it was in 1990.  It's so simple. The music and the song.

No. We're supposed to be upset because their bullheaded ignorance, bigotry, narcissism and belligerence combined with their shockingly large numbers are driving all of us towards utter catastrophe.

"I knew nothing about these devices but hoped it would just get me through my annual Christmas card ordeal."

You take care of that by never responding to any and never sending any. Just a few years later and tah dah, ordeal gone!

I've discovered this about most people I meet, because I'm an atheist stuck in the Bible Belt.  :\

"As for the rest of us, we all feel like we're leaning too far back in our chairs, almost falling over but not quite - that queasy feeling of impending doom, compacted between intense stress over our personal health and our personal finances, not knowing whether outside interference with the election combined with Trump's attempts to cheat will give us four more years of this national madness."

Speak for yourself author. I'm not feeling anything at this point. I told friends in Nov 2016 that America would learn what it's been like to live as a minority in this country. The worry, the stress, the angst. To date, Trump's America has lived up to exactly what I thought it would be.

Now, I don't know if there's enough people scared shiatless to end this nightmare in November, but I honestly hope so. If not, I'll continue to watch the shiatshow as it goes on. Living almost 30 years in Alabama as a black man gave me some very thick skin and very good perception skills. I'll just keep on truckin' and protecting those I love and care about.

the last three years have been nice in that those ignorant racists have felt very comfortable telling you about it. so that's cool. at least you know who is an asshole.

Trumputin is to America's neonazis what the Battle of the Bulge was to the original nazis - a gigantic, last ditch effort that did indeed earn them plenty of gains but in the end only delayed their inevitable defeat.

Could be another Karen. Mental illness also causes racism.

Had not seen the one with the woman destroying N95 masks at Target. Yikes. Full on crazy. She needed to be in a mental ward.

Post means he needs to be in the past. I'd say this is more like a national Münchausen syndrome. "Let's fix all of these supposedly terrible problems that don't exist and ignore the ones that do!"

The problem with Kanye or other political hobbyists running for president is that it further erodes the already threadbare integrity of our presidential politics

And conservatives wonder why people are flocking to Biden...

Cops actually came to her house and arrested her. In the video, posted on Twitter, she alleges she talks to the president and is a federal undercover agent or something.

She also said they were only arresting her because she's Jewish and they're Nazis. Okay...

The fact that, because of our national inept response to COVID, I won't be able to throw a raging house party with all my friends if Trump loses in November is another way that 2020 completely sucks.

/the occasion will call for epic drunk video calls all around, to be sure.

Hey, if you think life is frustrating during this pandemic, try going into it with a borderline personality disorder.

You still can, if you make it a two week quarantine bender.

Hold a socially-distanced street party.  Everybody in their driveways/front gardens.  Close enough to talk (especially when the booze kicks in and the volume goes up) but easily a safe distance away.  Bonus:  Sore Trumpers won't show up so you'll be ale to tell which of your neighbours were Trumpers but are attempting to hide that fact.

White people in America need a therapist.  Collectively.  Even before Trump came along but especially afterwards.

Everyone needs to stop this nonsense with just saying "White/black/asian/whatever people something, something."  It's intellectually lazy and grossly inaccurate.
