At the risk of sounding repetitive:

This is the guy that a group of people here want you to NOT vote against. Don’t listen to them and as many others have said already…. Vote like lives depend on it.

The “I’d rather live under a fascist dictatorship than vote for Biden” crowd are little better than the red-hatted morons cheering for that same fascist dictatorship.

Non-voting “leftists” will just find a way to moralize their shitty choice, just like they virtue signal about genocide and immediately promote tactics that are going to increase it.

Everyone should vote for Biden.

You pretend everyone to your left is all the way to your right because and only because you never want to move to the left.

To be honest, I think everyone should vote for a more fitting candidate. Unfortunately, all we have is Biden, so that will have to do for now.

Vote Biden or see more crazy bullshit under Trump, people!

DudI, you are as predictable as they come. I could fish for Crab just by posting ANYTHING critical of the “far left” propagandists.

And- I don’t pretend, kiddo…

They are here in DROVES telling people not to vote. And you know this. You’ve been involved in some of the discussions where these people post their shit-take comments. So what’s your angle here?

You say you’re voting for Biden, yet protect the propagandists that are seemingly trying to get Trump elected?

You’re admitting to trolling here. The scare quotes around far left are another attempt to tie anyone to your left to the worst of the right, with no evidence at all.

And- I don’t pretend, kiddo…

Ok. If you prefer I say that you’re lying about everyone to your left in your constant attempts to silence criticism, I can do that. Demeaning pet name noted.

They are here in DROVES telling people not to vote.

Not just droves, all-caps DROVES, even. Like Republicans call the brown people they hate on the spurious grounds that they’re here to steal their jobs. What do you suppose these all-caps DROVES are here to steal? Oh, maybe since they all became Russians the instant they disagreed with you about anything at all, they’re here to steal your precious bodily fluids.

So what’s your angle here?

I criticize people to my right. You should try it.

You say you’re voting for Biden

Yes, I am.

yet protect the propagandists that are seemingly trying to get Trump elected?

I cannot protect the people you call propagandists from anything. And if they’re trying to get Trump elected, they’re going about it pretty badly. This is a small fledgling platform, full of centrists who are so firmly entrenched in their positions that they imagine that anyone to their left is a scary foreigner, or feign such paranoia in an attempt to silence criticism of their wing of the party, and to a lesser extent Biden and Netanyahu. Propaganda would see a piss-poor return on investment here.

Attacking users that you want to vote for Biden isn’t the win you think it is.

There was that one other time Trump was racist (not current! only includes up to 2017):

1973: The Nixon Administration sued Trump for refusing to rent to black people

1980s: Trump’s casinos were accused of hiding black staff when Trump visited

1989: Trump took out a full page ad arguing for the death penalty for a group of black men (The ‘Central Park Five’), effectively putting a bounty on their heads and plaguing them with a lifetime of death threats. He was sued by the Justice Department for discrimination.

1991: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kinds of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day…I think that the [black] guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is.

1992: Trump’s casino was fined $200,000 for transferring black dealers off certain tables to appease racist patrons.

1993: Trump said Native American casinos shouldn’t be allowed because, “They don’t look like Indians to me.”

2000: Trump ran a series of attack ads against Native American casinos, alleging (with no proof) that they were guilty of crimes.

2004: Trump fired a black contestant from ‘The Apprentice” for being over-educated.

2010: Trump argued in favor of segregating Muslims in Lower Manhattan.

2011: Birtherism. Trump alleged that Obama was Kenyan based on nothing but skin color. He’s neither apologized, nor renounced that claim.

2015 (1): Trump called Mexican immigrants “rapists” who are “bringing crime and drugs” to the US.

2015 (2): Trump called for “a ban on all Muslims entering the US.”

2016(1): Trump called for a Mexican judge to recuse himself based on nothing other than his race. Paul Ryan said, “This was the textbook definition of a racist comment.”

2016 (2): Trump regularly retweeted material from white supremacists and neo-Nazis during his campaign.

2016(3): Trump tweeted a picture alleging Hillary was Jewish or controlled by Jewish people.

2016(4): The Trump campaign adopted Nixon’s “Law and Order” rhetoric which was based in racial fear mongering.

2016(5): Trump told black voters, “What do you have to lose?”

2017(1): Trump asked a black reporter to set up a meeting with the black caucus simply because she was black.

2017(2): “…some very fine people on both sides”, said Trump of a violent Nazi rally.
