Dershowitz has fucked up his legacy. Not sure he'll be able to come back from this one. He's got 9 lives though, he's defended OJ, Epstein and a few others and still maintained his rep, but this time? Not too sure. 

I recall I lost all respect for the head of NOW during the Clinton investigation. It's okay to be supportive of democratic party policies to help women and still be critical of bad male behavior from allies. Just like how I lost all respect for the christian right now, I lost all respect for the women's movement in the 90s when they made excuses for Bill's affairs, etc.

No, it precisely sums up the truth in Trump-style.

And to the crux, of the limited mind set of the Trumpanzee.

in simple formulaic style

Dislike Trump = love Hilary/anyone who is a Democrat.

Like Trump = hate everyone else, usually at the top of one's voice with eyes bulging and spittle flying.


My position has always been = Politicians of any flavour are the scum of the earth.

Trump is the worst of them, Netanyahu is a close second and then there's list, of politicians numbering, n. Where  n  = the number of people describing themselves or being described as politicians.

There is an accepted low opinion of politicians no matter their ideology. There was always a standard people had and wouldn't accept someone from their own party doing it much less the opposition. This changed but more or less there was an accepted code of conduct. 10 years ago, even 5, had a Republican politician done and said the myriad of things that Trump did, he'd be ostracized. Years go David Duke, the former grand wizard of the KKK ran for office in Louisiana and the Republican party wouldn't support him and actively worked against him in the primaries. Duke spoke in coded speech. He disavowed his KKK history. He spoke in parts in populist terms. If you look at what he said then it was actually milder than Trump today. So, ostracize David Duke for things milder than what Trump has said but support Trump for saying and doing more racist things? 

Steven King of Iowa was always a white supremacist, spoke in coded speech, just this line of censure and then he said too much. Everyone knew he was racist. He coded his speech just enough to give himself wiggle room. He used 'western civilization' as code for white or European. He actually said what was wrong with white nationalism and white supremacy and that got him ostracized in Congress. He was kicked off all his committees. He can only vote as his right but that's it. He has no say. 

I guarantee you, 100 percent that if Trump said the same thing he said, line for line, Republicans would still support him. No doubt whatsoever in my mind based on what he's said and done already. And had Steve King said what Trump had said such as shithole countries, etc, he'd be censured. 

Finally, if pointing out Democratic bad behavior of the past as examples of things that you should use as a guide not to support in a politician and you find it as a deal breaker in voting for someone, then you vote for someone who has done similar things and worse, then you are invariably saying those past actions by Democrats are not wrong. 

That meme being used by Trump supporters are ACCEPTING such behavior. If I were outraged by Clinton getting a blow job from an intern in the '90s and wanted him out, then vote for someone who I know who has paid porn stars, cheated regularly on his wife, that makes me a hypocrite.

Here y'go Cav, the original post, before it was edited and promoted to Trumpanzees...


This is how accurate the media is...

An Electric Biker is sitting on his Harley Davidson Livewire, drinking a Cappuccino, at the Zoo,  in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage.
Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to eat her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his Harley Davidson Livewire,  runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, “Sir, this was the most gallant and bravest thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.”
The Harley rider replies, “Why, it was nothing, really. The lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.”
The reporter says, “Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living, and what political affiliation do you have?”
The biker replies "I'm a Millennial, a Voter and I’m not voting for Trump."
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
And THAT pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days!
