Most Trump fans are not KKK members but most KKK members are Trump fans

Most Trump supports subscribe to one or many forms of bigotry. Only some take the time to join the club.

I'd like to see the data for that statement.

Enjoy

Sorry, here's the Brookings summary if you don't have access.

Double edit: Found a non paywall version.

Lol have you seen the legislation the GOP is proud to pass?

u/doggonebd Sep 22 '22

Here's some data that might make you uncomfortable: republican party = white nationalist party. If you stand with Trump and his January 6 goon squad, you stand with the Klan. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/kwm9hm/self_portrait/

That's the strangest dataset I've ever seen. The chart looks like a KKK dude painting himself as Captain America. Just... weird.

Typical childish response. No actual data just a shitty opinion about a group of people based off the statements of a small vocal minority. Did I get that right?

I don't stand with the GOP, Trump, or the KKK. I also don't stand with Biden, the Democratic Party, or major corporations / Tech h Moguls.

I do stand with typical everyday people just trying to the live their life while trying to navigate this ever changing world.

Unfortunately too many idiots on either side of politics keep screaming and crying while slinging insults just so "muh political candidate can best the other sides political candidate".

No politicians have your best interest at heart and the sooner you learn that the less vitriolic you will be.

Cheers.

I hate how people think this is some sort of mic drop moment.Bro we know. We just think the GOP is worse. Which is reasonable. Both sides are not the same. One side is obviously much worse.

u/ASTaBois Sep 22 '22

Both parties are terrible. Neither is worse than the other. They have their own shitty objectives. The Democratic party doesn't give a shit about you or your woes. The only reason they run on a socially progressive ticket is because it's easier to appeal to higher populated areas that way.

The republican party also doesn't give a shit about anyone's issues. They just do whatever they think will piss the Democrats off. Which they have been very good at doing apparently.

Either not paying attention or just trolling

u/Igot2phonez Sep 22 '22

Nah the GOP has worse policies that are more harmful. Idk why you restated that dems don't give a shit. I literally agreed with that.I just know they are better than the GOP. They're not only trying to piss of dems their trying to cater to their base.

Anyways I know you're not addressing me in good faith. You responded to the guy who showed you a drawing and my comment. But somehow couldn't respond to the guy who presented the data you requested.

u/ASTaBois Sep 22 '22

I appreciate the link I'll take a look.

u/doggonebd Sep 22 '22

My opinion isn’t shitty or childish; it’s actually pretty good. I didn’t say you stood with anyone and I dint much care what you stand for. I responded to your bullshit comment about wanting data to support ImKeg’s opinion that most Trump supporters are bigoted in one way or another. Are you aware of a way to accurately measure bigotry in other people? Do you have a body of evidence to disprove the opinion? Maybe try not being the data police or just take a break from commenting.

1

u/ASTaBois Sep 22 '22

All trump's supporters aren't bigoted in one way or another though. That's what I am saying. It is your opinion that they are, without knowing any of the people your are defaming personally.

u/sloppyjumpcuts Sep 22 '22

Trump is a bigot.

If you support Trump you share in his bigotry.

Thats just like the definition of support dawg.

u/ASTaBois Sep 22 '22

I guess you could say the same for Joe Biden then huh?

5

u/sloppyjumpcuts Sep 22 '22

Link please.

Is it so crushing to hear the above about Trump that we immediately point fingers at someone else instead of addressing the actual comment I made?

Your true colors are showing.

If they are not bigoted then why the hell are they supporting a well documented sexist, racist conman and in general also a misogynist, racist, homophobic, fascist party.

As the old quote goes "if there’s a Nazi at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with 11 Nazis"

u/doggonebd Sep 22 '22

I didn’t say all Trump supporters are bigoted 1mKeg said most are. We don’t need data to support or dispute that. You’re saying they aren’t all bigoted, at least that’s what you just said you’re saying. What if I replied with, ‘I’d like to see the data to support that.’? That’s be lazy at least.

I’m not defaming anyone personally. And I do know many Trump supporters, most all of whom I would consider bigoted in one way or another. And the ones who stand with the January 6 rioters and believe the the election were stolen are by and large white nationalists, whether or not they carry the card or don the robe, maga is a cult of the stupid and those who prey on them. Would you like to see the data in that, professor?

1

u/ASTaBois Sep 22 '22

Data would certainly be nice to sell your point forward yes.

2

u/doggonebd Sep 22 '22

I’m not selling anything, I’m just calling bullshit on your first comment which is the same as your most recent comment. The data is in the thread and I bid you good day sir!

u/ohyeawellyousuck Sep 23 '22

Makes sense that you responded to this comment and not the comment citing a study done on the role of racism in the 2016 election.

Because you just want to troll.

u/ASTaBois Sep 23 '22

Reading must not be a strong suit.

They're already indoctrinated. Tolerance of their bigotry won't un-indoctrinate them. It's independents we have to focus on so that we can pass effective legislation without them. They're not suddenly going to flip their views because you let them be hateful.

Most Muslims aren’t suicide bombers, but most suicide bombers are Muslim

Seems like a broad brush huh?

u/theykilledk3nny Sep 22 '22

I mean yeah that’s true? Most suicide bombers are indeed radical extremist Muslims? What’s your point?

u/82ndGameHead Sep 22 '22

Most democrats are not communists, but all communists are democrats.
