You're not helping.

Gerrymandering and voter suppression are serious issues, and they had far more effect on the vote than Russian interference. Money spent by Russians is a drop in the ocean compared to what is spent by American corporations. If they find any campaign finance law violations, then I hope they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. But let's keep it real about what's fair and square.

No, there's no defending you. You're just making crap up. The only "identity politics" (made up phrase) on this thread were introduced by YOU. It was you who took great offence that some people liked a politician that wasn't white, even though her gender and the color of her skin had nothing to do with what they liked about her. Then you sort of lost your mind. You've attacked a poster, accusing him of "identity politics" (made up phrase), who was basically agreeing with you --- because you obviously can't read. You have twice attributed things to me that I didn't say and demanded explanations from me regarding posts somebody else made.

If you want race and gender out of the political discourse then I suggest you talk to Trump. He's the one who can't let a day go by without picking at that scab. But, let's face it, you don't want race or gender to ever be gone from the conversation --- you're obsessed. You'll keep interjecting race and gender into the conversation and then claiming OUTRAGE that race and gender are part of the conversation. It's either a sickness or a fetish. Probably a sick fetish.

Patriotism is to have a better vision for your country.
Besides, I didn't hear him bleating that nonsense when Obama won by a landslide. Twice.

As I provided previously, these I believe to be honest to goodness facts. Pretty well presented and easy to drill into the detail.

Except it doesn't apply when you're talking about actual Nazis.

But you're right. It isn't fair to compare Trump with Hitler. I mean, Hitler did write his own book, after all.

You think we should all get behind the election victor? I didn't realize you are a Communist, who supports democratic centralism.

Identity politics has been known for many years it's at the heart of political correctness and is no more made up than political correctness itself. As for the example where I pointed out that politician as being selected on the basis of identity politics go and look again at the TEN indicators in that short BBC article and then explain why you think that none of them have anything to do with identity politics.

But you know what it seems that in the US it's impossible not to talk about politics without identity politics coming into it somewhere so maybe I should just accept that and instead of pointing it out, embrace it as a fact of life in modern day USA. So here goes: Trump has growing numbers of men, women and people of all races genders etc supporting him. Good hardworking and law abiding people from all of these groups deserting the Democratic party, shunning the likes of ANTIFA and rebelling against the wrongs of the past. Take a look at what this very fine young lady has to say about it all, and good on her!

When Obama won by a landslide, twice, those who didn't vote for him didn't go into wrecking mode. There were a lot of people very strongly opposed to him but for the most part they accepted their loss and moved on. They didn't like it but they lumped it.

Candace Owens? Oh boy, if you keep scraping the bottom of that barrel you might find a Charlie Kirk, or a Jesse Lee Peterson.

Why are you so obsessed with what is essentially a minor issue in a country where you don't even live, and clearly know nothing about?

Yes, that's exactly what they did... Here's some more "identity politics" from that time...

Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!

No, really, that's very funny indeed. I mean, it's not as if a future presidential candidate was at the helm of a movement entirely dedicated to trying to prove the falsehood that the then President wasn't born in the US and was therefore ineligible to stand for the presidency, was it?

Or that the Congress refused to hear confirmations for a Supreme Court appointment for six months?

No, of course, not - they accepted their loss and moved on.

Nincompoop.

Oh yeah, I forgot how you've been living in the US since 2008. But of course, nobody once complained about the 'nigger in the White House', or called his wife a ****ing transsexual ape. Get a grip. Not to mention your tangerine hero started the damn birther movement because he just couldn't accept that rich, old, out-of-touch white Republicans lost to a black man.

Since you're the A-one expert on buzzwords, wouldn't this be 'concern trolling'?
