I've been posting about him since 2014, and for five years, noting that the SPLC has him trafficking with multiple anti-immigrant hate groups.

    So how is he still right there? Why was he given a job in the Trump administration to try and put racist questions into the census? At what point to Republicans look at guys like this and go, "Please, get me someone who isn't a screaming bigot. I will not hold my nose and vote for them."?

    I'm still waiting. And I just keep seeing conservatives defend worse and worse things reflexively. And it's chilling.
    It's a feature, not a bug, as we see from recent posts here. Never criticize, alway defend and when you can, blame it on Obama and the Democrats.

    They do and have. Mistakes have been made all around. The picture you paint however, as unrealistic as it is, is that the democrats have always been this perfectly immaculate example that has never made a mistake or has smudges on their record.

    Wow. I'm sorry you feel that way. If anybody ever wondered why your everyday Joe White taxpayer, with his head down, just trying to keep his sanity as trudges back and forth to work eveyday is becoming more and more agitated with the democratic party, look no further than this quote.

    Jesus, man. Way to go with more of your insulting generalizations and assumptions.

    Y'know, I forgot to also mention... the Trump administration's immigration policies are flagrantly ignoring the American judiciary. And has been for a year.

    Conservatism has also somehow become defending actions that the court says are unconstitutional, but screw it, let's break the law and do it anyway.

    Ah, another "conservative" argument. Undermining the naysayers by trying to portray them as you imagine them. They're obviously opposed to "Joe White Taxpayer" (interesting how you volunteered the WHITE adjective in there), trudging to work everyday.

    I work everyday. For the Department of Veterans' Affairs, serving our country's troops. I also pay my taxes. I'm also white, as embarrassing as some white people can make it be to admit that these days.

    But I'm still also not arguing against basic human rights, as you are. Or trying to pretend that I'm the victim here, being "slighted" for trying to deny immigrant children those rights.

    Oooh... check that one of the "conservative" arguments checklist! The victim complex where not getting to oppress or demean others and being called out for doing so is actually somehow discrimination against the conservative.

    I believe I demonstrated precisely the opposite of that.

    In case you weren't paying attention, let me reiterate... Democrats are decidedly not cool with this. And aren't just feigning outrage. Sen. Jeff Merkley and Rep. Jamila Prayapal have a bill going to end it.

    Stupid as it sounds, at least it's better to piss money on things that can benefit people than, say, artificial islands in the design of the planet.

    That seems to be making a habit that some have about preferring what is largely an echo chamber (or a narrow range of discussion) into an official policy, and insisting that others act that way.

    I am not asking for anything to be made an official policy Mets. I am wondering why they bother when they clearly only want to argue with people. They aren't changing anyones mind and I don't recall a single one of their minds being changed either. It's just a steady escalation of tension until the meltdown and ban o they just leave. I am just tired of the song and dance when there are plenty of other places for them to go if they want their voice heard. Those options don't end with 5+ replies to every one of their posts telling them how wrong they are. At least with you, you seem to be a prewipe guy who's also a mod. I imagine not all of your 10,000+ current posts are here either. So you aren't here just to argue. I can't really say the same about the tourists or the guys that only post after a major Trump administration win to gloat and then disappear until the next time. This is coming from a history of conservative bad faith behavior on these threads not out of a desire for an echo chamber. I am also tired of the democrat backbiting but that's just unavoidable. Conservatives picking fights or pissing in the wind at the threads expense is avoidable.

    I can accept the fact that not all Republicans are bad, just as not all Democrats are good, that simply isn’t possible, not in the often chaotic world of politics. But, the fact that precious few members of the GOP have offered even the most tepid protests of the policies of Trump or his administration tells me they’re either too afraid of the Orange Menace, or maybe they have little problem with the hideous things he’s done as president, and that paints them with the same brush as all the thugs, cretins and scumbags in the GOP that worstblogever has profiled over the years.

    I hope you're being sarcastic.
