"If you're at a sandbar, 50 percent plus have Trump stuff."

One, I've been to sandbar parties, and I am not surprised by this figure, in fact I'm surprised it's not closer to 80%.

Two, maybe the reason you are seeing so much Trump stuff at open parties is because COVID-19 is killing people and only f*cking douchebag morons go to sandbar parties during a pandemic.

I'm pretty centrist on most stuff, and very much anti-Trump (on almost every level). Being out on a boat a few weeks ago was downright unsettling...half of the other boats had Trump flags waving and it was just vaguely unsettling. It's like the one venue where everyone feel like that they can wave their flags, which was mentioned in TFA.

I don't mean unsettling on a personal level, like I felt threatened. I was just terrified at the cult of personality, groupthink, and cheering for a person like they're a sport team. It's eerie and I've never seen anything like it in my 41 years on this earth.

So if you are too cowardly to admit that you support trump when you are on land you can PRETEND to be a bad ass trumper on the water.

Such brave heroes......

FTFA: Now, he said, "If you're at a sandbar, 50 percent plus have Trump stuff."

If you look to the floor of whatever body of water you're on, there's even more.

Whatever that shiat was, subby, I sure wouldn't call it "analysis".

Boaters, especially people with large boats, tend to be old white people.

Wouldn't Poseidon be in charge of releasing the Biden?

This last month, antifa has been accused of conjuring waves to sink a problem-Trump boat parade, and starting wild fires that magically stop at the US/Canada border.

So, I'm going to take that and say that The Avatar is antifa.

Because only Trumpers are dumb enough to spend money on leisure craft.

I can see a boat that you can live upon, but leisure/sport craft are holes in the water that you shovel money into.

yeah that was farking disturbing, yet unsurprising, yet these people are all cowardice and bluster. but still.

"For me, it's more like Trump risked his entire life to stand up for the country," said Feeley, a contractor. "He didn't need money. ... He didn't need fame." He did not think the flags would have caught on like this for another Republican candidate. What if Trump loses? "I'm still flying it. And I'm heading to the White House with the militia."

mainly I see these jackwagons buzzing around the Delaware getting entirely too close to sailboats and people fishing. oh, we didn't realize our wake upsets other boats hurr hurr hurr!

/risked his entire life?
//didn't need money?
///the baby looked at you?

The non-college educated white guy with disposable income is exactly the type of person to buy a boat.

Ladies and gentlemen, the 2020 Trump voter. Not UNinformed, but wildly, dangerously and intentionallyMISinformed.

I keep my boat in a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Trump flags, while common, are on far less than 10% of boats. Actually, probably close to 1%.

Does anyone actually care what these losers claim they're going to do?

I'm so sick of this threat to violence if they don't get their way.

It's like that annoying crazy ex who threatens suicide if you leave them.  At a certain point, you just go - FARKIN' DO IT THEN!

The same reason I was not surprised when we held our museum golf tournament fundraiser, and maybe 4-5 people were wearing some form of Trump hat (including a Veterans for Trump hat).

Well-off old assholes are going to favor Scalpatine.

Craig and Lisa Terry were celebrating their anniversary anchored in nearby Hurricane Pass under a "Trump: No More Bulls--t" flag, ice clinking in their cocktails. Despite their flag, Craig Terry, who owns a construction business, said he would never wear a Trump shirt or display a bumper sticker or yard sign at home in High Springs.
The water, however, is "neutral ground" where, he said, you can fly your Trump flag and "you don't have to fear for your business. You don't have to fear for your neighborhood."


Oh, that makes total sense. They are farking cowards.

Other than Trump, the other things in common with the boat parades are:

1)  Wealthy or Upper middle class
2)  Deeply entitled
3)  White

Sound familiar?

Terry, lounging in his Pabst Blue Ribbon swim trunks, said repeatedly his flag is not so much about "loving Trump," the man, specifically. He talked instead about wanting to signal the things he's against, laying out grievances with Black Lives Matter Terry, lounging in his Pabst Blue Ribbon swim trunks, said repeatedly his flag is not so much about "loving Trump," the man, specifically.

How farking white do you have to be to disagree with the notion that black lives, matter? It does my head in.

People in Minnesota own boats for fishing.  People in Real America own boats for drinking.
