Is it embarrassing that Hillary had almost all of the mainstream media on her side and still lost to Trump?
It is comedy Gold! It's the kind if thing an non-leftist comedian could set a whole routine around!
Trump pwned the media over and over. Voters who are sick of being told what to think loved it. Hence Trump won.
She did not have the people that wanted jobs, good affordable health care, a government of the middle class. The sexist, wage gap, racist, usual DEM arguments did not fly.
If it was about jobs so much how come the demographic with the highest percentage unemployment overwhelmingly voted Hillary?
JAM they voted for Trump!
Trump got 8% of the black vote
So! They NEVER vote anything but Democratic!
So the people who need jobs the most voted Hillary
No they did not!
Nice to see people thinking for themselves and not letting the liberal elite media manipulate them.
This is fake news. Hillary won
Are you people still believing the fake news?
Poor sissy baby democrats. The ass burn is strong with them.
She also spent a billion dollars
Despite the 2 billion dollars worth of air time they have him.
His 91% negative news coverage? It a miracle he survived the onslaught
Monkey ... wake up!
They showed the vast majority of his rallies in full and never took him seriously, up until election night. This pissed off Trump voters. Hilary has other reasons to be embarrassed, this isn't one of them.
Now you're lying. They attacked him day and night ever since he was the nominee. This is even found in their own memos as seen in the leaks
I never said they didn't "attack" him, I'm saying his rallies got way more coverage. His words reached more people for free.
That was a part of their attack scheme, disregarding the fact entirely that it backfired on them
Monkey ... who is your "they"? Plenty of people took Mr Trump seriously, just because you didn't is nobody's problem but yours!
They being the media.
Any press is good press and he sure got a fuckload of it
So, other than their arrogant leftist bias, why do you think "they" missed the seriousness of Mr Trump's candidacy so badly?
The same thing happened with Hitler
Think, the context of this thread is the media, therefore THEY is acceptable. Few people took Trump seriously because he has no experience in government and said crazy shit.
Mystic ... you mean the social democrats in Germany? Those ideological soulmates of Mr Sanders and at least half of the Democrat party?
Monkey ... of course you'd celebrate ambiguity rather than precision, as precision is the enemy of leftists.
This whole fucking conversation has been about the media!
Monkey ... awww ... does somebody need a safe space?
Fascism is right wing
And yeah, the media also spent a long time talking about how Hitler didn't know what he was doing, and even though people elected him they'd totally regret it soon when they found out he didn't have any plans, then the holocaust happened
So you have nothing of substance?
What did that have to do with anything?
Mystic ... except when it's not ... like the first fascists every identified. Did you forget that Mussolini was a communist and Hitler was a social democrat?
Don't you hate it when your common core trained leftist activist teachers lied to you? Reality is not dependent on your misunderstandings.
I get the feeling that everything is a liberal conspiracy to think.
"Fascism opposes liberalism, marxism, and anarchism"
Plus communists were in the concentration camps, along with gay people. Hitler was extremely socially and economically conservative
He's calling out your projection
Mystic ... nonsense! Fascism is a form of authoritarianism that knows no limit based on political ideology.
By the way, you ignored the fact that Hitler was a social democrat and Mussolini was a communist. I understand that you can't acknowledge these facts and maintain your lie.
What projection exactly is that? Is it in my head the hours of free screen time trump got?
You're comparing me to a Nazi because Germany hated Communism and was economically conservative. That's incredibly pathetic
No I'm not, I'm saying the way the media treated trump and the media treated Hitler are very similar
Uh oh, now It seems like think and ikeuban21 need a safe space.
If Hitler was a social democrat how come he killed communists?
Mystic ... noted that you won't answer the questions. The fact is that the media coverage of Mr Trump is in no way similar to the coverage given to Mr Hitler. One was overwhelming negative and the other was dishonestly positive.
In fact, if you're looking for a parallel, the fawning coverage of Mrs Clinton is FAR more parallel to Mr Hitler than anything!
Having an opposing view doesn't always mean a personal attack guys
Im talking about the American media, which most definitely did not like hitler
Mystic ... easily. Are you suggesting that Mr Hitler wasn't a social democrat?
Mystic ... of course you'd use your vague musings to abstract fiction. Explain the difference between the German media coverage of Mr Hitler to the US media coverage of Mrs Clinton.
"but he was clear to point out that his interpretation of socialism "has nothing to do with Marxian Socialism," saying that "Marxism is anti-property; true Socialism is not."
I'm comparing the American coverage if trump to the American coverage of hitler, because I don't like to compare apples to oranges, and Hillary doesn't censor the media
Mystic ... thanks for confirming your ignorance of history. Mr Hitler was most definitely a social democrat. Look it up!
"Hitler also believed that individuals within a nation battled with each other for survival, and that such ruthless competition was good for the health of the nation, because it promoted "superior individuals" to higher positions in society."
Mystic ... try again. You say you don't like comparing apples and oranges yet you show your feeble proclivity of comparing apples to wingnuts.
"Hitler also expressed his belief in "the further development of humanity through the promotion of private initiative, in which alone I see the precondition for all real progress"
Mystic ... you can't even accept the facts that are irrefutable, so how can you be viewed as an honest debater?
Mystic ... was Mr Hitler a social democrat?
No, he wasn't. He prided himself on making the economy not an issue, and letting competition sort it out, not exactly a democratic stance
Mystic ... you are either ignorant or dishonest. Which?
Mystic ... let your education begin ...
Neither. I actually know what I'm talking about instead of throwing on an antiquated label and calling it good. Besides, you haven't exactly provided any support
Some random blog rambling barely coherently isn't exactly support
Mystic ... of course. Keep your delusion alive!
You keep saying things and not proving them
Mystic ... I just showed how ignorant you are with your empty claims. Hitler is seen as the founder of the social democrat movement. Ask a historian!
I recognize that you have issues with reality, but it's as true as Mussolini was a communist! Deal with it.
You linked someone's blog talking about three things at once. Get a credible source and maybe ill believe you
Mystic ... your education of history is your issue, not mine. Just because your ignorant doesn't change the truth.
Prove its the truth then, shouldn't be hard if its so obvious and widely accepted
