"Clean up on aisle ATP&N ! Someone just spewed hate and foulness all over the place" Can we get a mop and bucket here?
You swallowed every drop of Trump's salty goo of hate and foulness and now you are concerned?

Go back to your day job. Trump's waiting.

I guess you could make the argument that Rush Limbaugh was nice to a few black people when he wasn't on the airwaves spewing hate , bigotry, division and fear.

Just like Bill Cosby the rapist was nice and and did some good things when he wasn't raping people.

Just as Ted Bundy once worked a suicide prevention hotline when he wasn't torturing and murdering all those women.

Hoo-wee.

Tolerance is all well and good until it becomes truly difficult. Then we celebrate someone's cancer diagnosis.

You guys should be ashamed. What waste of time.
“Maybe he’s looking up” (I guess will soon be able to say that about Limbaugh)

I don't get this insistence that anyone not a conservative is obliged to be infinitely 'tolerant' of everyone and everything, no matter how harmful. Where do you lot get that from?

Personally, I've never claimed to have limitless tolerance. It's not necessary to be a saint and love everyone to disagree with the right and see them as an enemy.

(Hell, I find it hard enough to tolerate liberals and much of the left.)

Another egregious personal insult.
It's not a personal attack to point out someone's demonstrable record of hypocrisy when they're making an argument of questionable sincerity. You can't clutch pearls over people attacking Rush when you enthusiastically support a President who attacks distinguished military veterans (including McCain while he was dying) and the disabled, who effectively asked a group of non-white Democrats to "go back to where you came from," and who hurls childish insults at virtually any major personality who disagrees with him.

If you want to make a call for civility and decorum, you're morally obligated to oppose Trump.

I hope he lives longer, so he can enjoy cancer treatment. And not smoke pot to aliviate symptoms since he is anti drug after all.
Doctors will likely be very reluctant to prescribe opiates due to his previous battle with addiction until it's clear whether or not he's responding to treatment, hypothetically.

From progressives. They are remarkably tolerant of people who agree with them, and often seem downright hateful of those who don't. They also display a curious inability to distinguish between Rush Limbaugh and Hitler. No one says you should tolerate a Hitler. We say you should be mature enough and serious enough to distinguish a Hitler from a Limbaugh. People here talk of Limbaugh as if he's a serial killer.

sorry, but you conservatives absolutely refuse to learn a single fucking lesson from history. Not a fucking one.

Hitler wasn't "a Hitler" until he became a real serious problem for the world. He was always Hitler, of course, but it took more than a decade of Nazi messaging and relatively passive power-grabbing before fuckholes woke the fuck up, and then it was too late.

What you objectively REFUSE to accept, is that the head of these beasts needs to be lopped off BEFORE they become the very same fucking problem.

How does one do that?

Well, you recognize them for doing exactly what they are shamelessly doing: using the same, tested, proven strategy of Nazi signaling to tease the very same "benign" fears from those that are amenable to simplistic messaging (conservatives/racists/the uneducated....seems to all be the same thing these days--objectively speaking, mind you), until it reaches a fever point where the targets of this conditioning are utterly convinced that the truth of the world is the one that has been carefully filtered into their incurious brains. This is exactly the same as GOP messaging over the last several decades. It is no fucking different, especially with Trump. Holy shit--you could take the Miller/Bannon message that infests the Trump administration, and draw direct, unmistakable messaging parsed directly from Goebbels. It absolutely is the same fucking strategy. The same fear and hate is exploited. The same repeated giant lies to convince the incurious that all it takes to create a truth, is to repeatedly lie about the same thing.

If you don't see the truth in what all of this is, then you are the problem. You bitch and moan and complain about the things you don't understand; "hhahaha! Dumb Libtards! Trump isn't Hitler! Where are the Deathcampls! hahahaha! Dumb libtards!"

What you uneducated goons fail to understand, is that you are in the fury cult of the early Nazi empire. It took well over a decade for the death camps to appear, yet that is exactly what you are desperately praying for. The GOP's quiet acceptance of Nazism in the Trump empire is absolutely no different from what it was in Germany of the late 20s and early 30s. It is literally no different. (except that they had a very real, and very serious depression to contend with--but if you recall Bannon from 2016, that is literally what he convinced the Trump acolytes was happening in the US, in 2016, lol. That fucking inauguration speech: "This Modern American Terror is Over!"

You fucking useless quislings that believed that, still believe that, voted for that catastrophic lie, and continue to genuflect in fealty over it, every fucking day. The GOP is the modern Nazi party, because they are going through the motions as we speak, every single fucking day with every gigantic lie that they pound down your throats, with every blatant miscarriage of justice that they perpetrate against the American public. Every single vote cast for a single member of the GOp is a vote against the USA. It isn't any other way.

The entire GOP needs one gigantic late-term abortion. And it is probably going to be messy.
