    can everyone on the right assume the role of oppressed underdog for the next four years? This could end up being a lot of fun for those on the right! It's a "lemons into lemonade" scenario to the extreme!

    From the git-go, the right has to accuse the Democrats of "stealing" the election in the first place. You know, deny the very legitimacy of the victory - this always sets a good tone! :yes:

    Then the right can go full-bore into tearing the president a new one! I mean trashing every fucking word they say, every decision they make, every position they take - because fuck them, right? :shrug: Accuse them of being traitorous communistic Nazi racist fuckwads, spew personal insults toward their family members, and attempt to humiliate, belittle and mock their supporters relentlessly.

    The right will now be "punching up" so NOTHING IS OFF LIMITS! :yes: Just think - 24/7 365 for FOUR YEARS of calling the president and everyone who voted for them cock-sucking shit-eating thieving murderous retarded inbred pieces of garbage - and being able to get away with it! :cool:

    Carte blanche to whine, complain, bitch, moan, nit-pick and second-guess the living dogshit out of the new president and all things left of center until they spend every waking minute in a piss soaked fetal positioned heap of despair & humiliation.

    But...but...the right was mean to Obama and his family when he was HMIC. :drama:
    Really now? :dayton: Seriously the Trump hate isn't 1,000 times worse than that?

    But..but...Trump and everyone who voted for him really deserve the hate because...well damn look how they are! :drama: Point well taken - and will be remembered when the shoe is on the other foot. :D

    Damn now I'm really pumped up for 2020 - if Trump wins, I win. If Trump loses, I still win and have an absolute ball mocking and insulting the stupid brain dead evil worthless bullying oppressive....okay I'm getting ahead of myself here, sorry! Hurry up election!!!!

    and people still try to defend you as an open minded person worthy of some form of respect. Thanks for proving them completely wrong.

    Trumpistas deserve their hate because the only reason to vote for trump is because he tries to harm non WASPs. He does no actual good and he actively harm america over all, but you love him because he is offensive to the people you hate. That is not a reason to be cheering for any person with ethics, morals, compassion, or who is not a racist Nazi russian agent.

    Obama never, ever expressed contempt for a palsy victim by imitating his twitches and slurred speech, never faked an orgasm whilst dissing a female FBI agent, never advised anyone that they could get away with grabbing women by the pussy, never publicly called a foreign nation a shithole, never called a whistleblower a spy who deserves the death penalty, never implied that a decorated military officer was a coward...but other than it's a spot on comparison...

    I've been seeing a lot of memes on social media from Republicans that basically say "We suffered for eight years under Obama, you can suffer under Trump".

    I'd like to know just how they "suffered".

    I didn't vote for the man, but I certainly didn't "suffer" while he was the President.

    So you are saying @oldfella1962 went through gay conversion therapy during the Obama years? It would explain a lot.

    So you agree that any person defending @oldfella1962 as an open minded person should be met with anger? Just trying to clarify that confusing response.

    As for names IIRC @spot261 and @armalyte have rushed to his defense. I am sure there are some others around.

    If I was in philly and someone asked how I was doing, not as a greeting, I would respond to them.

    I am not sure what that has to do with anything, but I don't think I would just ignore them and go on my way unless I was in a big hurry.

    No such thing.

    It. Was. A. Joke.

    You're just supposed to just say, "How you doin" back. Any other verbal response would be like asking for peppers on your cheese steak.

    Lord, I never realised how much you and Oldfella are so much alike.

    Like I said, not as a greeting. However, I have had friends who have said that to me and I have answered them. Do you not have friends who might wonder how you have been doing since you saw them last? It might explain your comment if you don't.

    I have lived in NC and people there actually get a response when they ask that question. Of course, the only reason I have for being in philly is a stop over to and from NY.

    the dislike/disdain for Obama wasn't even 10 percent of the Trump hate and you know it. But this time around if a straight white male Democrat wins the election nobody has to hold back for fear of being called a racist, sexist or homophobic. The president better have some thick, thick skin or it will be a long four years!
    Granted Trump has exceptionally think skin , but for some weird reason he thrives on hostile confrontation whether giving or getting it.

    me either! But according to about half of wordforge (even the members who don't live here) they are suffering greatly under Trump. :shrug: No problem - give them what they want in the form of a Democrat then watch their enthusiasm drop off a cliff when they realize not much changes for the better.

    The mocking of the palsy dude was fake news - turns out Trump had previously used the same exact mocking directed at non-palsy afflicted opponents. But then pretty much all the major Trump negatives were grossly exaggerated (Mulsim database, Mexican rapists, palsy guy) or completely false (racist, nazis fine people) except maybe the "Muslim ban" which was only partly exaggerated and the personality flaws like he's a repulsive pig in the lockerroom.

    Oldfella I think you missed the target when you described the consequences. The peanut gallery (Wf, twitter, whatever) will be no different post-Trump. But next Dem president will face more substantial obstacles, an empowered right wing feeling justified in reciprocal (in their minds) political Total War, including e.g.: political-based impeachment, deep state "Yes, Minister"-like resistance (from the ones that disagree with the Strzok and Pages) and mainstream press games like lie-counting "Big Macs a mile high." Blatant lies to unseat SCOTUS picks. And of course they'll have deal with a post-Potus Trump.

    Again ... were you in a coma for the burnings in effigy, the birth certificate hysteria, the ranting about how he was the Muslim/Communist/Atheist Antichrist?

    Seriously? The dude is even more hypersensitive and thin-skinned than Nixon.

    So @spot261 and any of the other oldfellah is not so bad people, are we supposed to ignore this abusive bullshit? This is the ranting of a right wing loonie. This is the sort of disrespectful abuse he lumps on the people who defend blacks, hispanics, GLBT people, and women. You are trying to tell us there is something good and decent in this guy? You are trying to tell us this does not come out in his everyday activities?

    At this point I have no doubt in who oldfella is. I totally hope that any non WASPs around do not take this sort of abuse personally, and that allies understand we need to stand against people like oldfella. But when you come around and defend people like him as being decent and misunderstood you are giving your voice to support his ranting, raving, and abusive rhetoric. You are part of it when you defend him. I am not calling for his banning, but I am calling for people not to make excuses for him because he is inexcusable. He wants to be this way. He is this way. Don't tell others there is a good side to him so we should just put up and accept this because you are shitting on the people who have to take this because oldfellah might not like you anymore. Maybe if he was alone with all the other racist assholes instead of being defended for his angry hate by the supposed nice guys he might look at himself or fade the fuck away. At the very least you would not pile shit on others for being offended by clearly offensive bullshit being spouted by oldracist.

    Obama bowed to an Arab leader at a diplomatic meeting and the right-wing went fucking mental about "appeasement".

    Trump exchanges what he refers to as love letters with a brutal North Korean dictator, openly says he's not interested in Saudi Arabia killing a journalist and cutting him into pieces, invites Turkey in to butcher the allies of the USA and we haven't even gotten to the Putin stuff yet, and you fuckers are like :shrug:

    You forgot when our commander in chief actually saluted low rank officers in NK. It was not just a bow, it was the way US military recognize people of higher rank and he did it to enemy troops of low rank. It is one thing not to know about the custom of bowing and make a mistake like that, but to fuck up your own country's gestures of respect is a different level of stupid and wrong.

    The right just shrugged their shoulders at president silver spoon brat who they know had his daddy get him out of service when his country called on him five times. The military has righties who think he is better than obama despite doing these things. I think one of the actual things that made me lose respect for @oldfella1962 is that I have not seen him totally downing trump for his obvious disrepect for our armed forces. I have said some bad things about people in the military, but if I was POTUS, or even as a citizen of the US I would never salute a foreign military. I would never disrespect our military like that as a civilian, and if I were somehow ever in command I would never ever send such a signal that undermined my own power.

    But it is clear in Oldfella, and other military people around here, how they have given trump a pass on things they would have made much more of an issue about if the black man had done it when he was commander.

    I said Obama faced these types of things occasionally and carried out mostly by the hard-core right. But "Trump hate" is a manic, widespread, omnipresent force that is accepted & encouraged by a much wider group of people. Granted social media and a huge internet presence in general magnifies everything so that is no doubt a factor.
