    Political Strawmans containment thread - both sides of the isle

    The number of social media posts I need to sort through to see my friends ugly ass kids or what is going on this weekend in my community is at an all time high. People just reposting absolute nonsense that nobody in the real world gives a fuck about just to make them fell like they are on the right side of an arguement/issue that nobody is arguing against.

    I know a lot of republicans. None of them give a fuck about this freshman congresswoman dancing 100 years ago.

    Nobody I know gives a damn about this. She’s a far left crackpot and no real person is looking for her to apologize.

    Outrage level zero.

    Facebook was the last thing i used, and while I still have it active (only really to use the messenger on pc) i avoid the rest of it like the plague now.

    Everyone I work with seems to have their phones perma-set to instagram nowadays.

    I don't care all too much about the rhetoric of that Michigan congresswoman. Whatever, in the age of Trump this is just where we are.

    However, I do appreciate the irony of a woman being sworn into a democratically elected high political office in a secular representative democracy with her hand on a Koran. I am pretty everything about this act is completely antithetical to everything the Koran stands for.

    Whenever something starts with “Democrats/Republicans/group x” say....... the first word you should think of is straw man.

    So many strawmans in just one meme.

    No liberal cares what Kid Fucking Rock thinks, or what the fallout is.

    I didn’t think creation of straw men was part of the job description.

    Republicans aren't trying to convince working class families that they'll be taxed at 70%.

    Lower-middle-class Republicans who are against 70% marginal tax rates on the rich feel that way for moral reasons, not due to the belief that they'll make that type of money one day.

    The left loves class warfare. "If you're poor, vote for us and we'll tax the rich!" has been their longstanding message.

    That does work to some degree.

    But there also comes a backlash from it, where a portion of the lower-middle and middle classes has a respect for the rich and their accomplishments, and simply doesn't think this is fair.

    Furthermore, it's hard to sell a 70% marginal tax rate to hardworking people, even if they do make relatively little money.

    They think, "These people work hard just like me. If I were fortunate enough to be super rich as a result of my work, it would fucking piss me off to see the government take 70%. What gives them the right?"

    There also becomes a "Where does is stop?" fear. Today they're raising taxes huge on the super-rich. Is the middle-class next? Working class Republicans know that the party has steadfastly opposed tax increases across the board, while Democrats have been wishy-washy regarding whether they want to raise or lower taxes on the middle class.

    The "can't afford healthcare" line is hilarious though. Nice pointless (and untrue) dramatic effect right there.

    Good to see Druff has a good grasp of socialist theory. The left has a problem with the class system? No shit.

    Also, his argument that lower middle class Republicans believe that people making more than $10 million per year deserve that much because of their “hard work” is bogus when you consider that most of those folks are executives at companies that likely outsourced a ton of American jobs to low wage countries. Or did Druff miss how mileage Donald Trump got out of bashing China for being the biggest beneficiary of auch actions?
