2008: "OMG! The President is Black! Let's start a Tea Party!"

My opinion is that Trump was elected because of the election of a Black President.

Had Obama's dad been a white guy from the UK, I doubt there would have been a "birther" conspiracy. And it is through the birther conspiracy that Donald Trump became political.

So had Obama been a white guy named Smith, no Donald Trump.

Yeah it's pretty obvious that him being black created a lot of anger. Him being 'different' was enough reason for them to start that whole birther conspiracy. And many still believe that crap

Sunsporter? This you?

@SevIsPamprinYouAlways "to clarify, I don't collect liberal cum for my AR-15 in any GAY way!"
I have to agree. There was always even a semblance of co-operation between the Republicans and Democrats before Obama. However, the election of a Black man was too far: the Republicans abandoned all pretence of bipartisanship and shut up shop.

@ElwoodBlues So you are opposed to 12 year old's getting chopoffadictomy's! How refreshing
@sunsporter1649 Obviously you've never heard of circumcision, LOL!!!

@ElwoodBlues Obviously, you are unaware of it, either

I'll tell you more, it was the beginning a domino effect. It's the very thing that made them drop the "patriotic" façade, and fully embrace neo-fascism.
Elessar · 26-30, M
@BohemianBoo It precedes him. Remember that over here all the parties with the exception of the fascist party were dissolved, because Mussolini (or at least his electorate) had a major persecution paranoia too, and were convinced that everyone but him was "bad" and conspiring against him. And then that became a self fulfilling prophecy.

@Elessar I was just referring to America. Of course, Trumpism isn't the first form of Authoritarianism.
Though I think the American Right has been influence by parts of Fascism and Nazism. "Cultural Marxism," which was based on Nazi propaganda, was created in America.

But yeah, if I had to pinpoint the beginning of the road to Trumpism, it would be around that time that Newt Gingrich started to radicalize the GOP. Meanwhile, right-wing media was becoming more insane too, due to people like Rush Limbaugh.

Trump was elected because democrats are idiots, and their policies are terrible.

@ron122 In so far as they offered up Hillary I accept that...😷
BohemianBoo · 18-21, M
@ron122 If that was the case, then Republicans would talk about policy.

That such a ridiculous conspiracy could get traction at all was an indictment on the American people and the American Media. But Trump was seeling a message of discontent that spoke to older, unsuccessful whites in particular..😷

@sunsporter1649 And you are just an American who cant see that having something yourself doesnt mean you cant want others to success as well and offer them what we in Australia call a "fair go". You need to be number 1, which just makes you in particular number 2..😷

I was told by a Republican politician that Trump was just the beginning of our punishment for putting an N****R in the whitehouse.

Had Obama had a white dad he never would have been where he was never been had the same Opportunities in life or his career.
dale74 · M
@trollslayer nope he did not work for anything it was handed to him all the way.
trollslayer · 46-50, M
@dale74 you are thinking of Trump
dale74 · M
@trollslayer nope tell me what hard work Obama ever did that he could have done the same thing as a white person. He didn't have to qualify as a white person would the bar was lowered now had you gotten a truly worthy person someone who actually went to all their college classes like condoleezza Rice that would be someone who truly deserves the position but likewise it's smart enough that she doesn't ever want that position.
BohemianBoo · 18-21, M
It was that, plus a lot of unironic anti-white racism, that led to people supporting Trump purely to OWN THE LIBS.
sunsporter1649 · 70-79, M
That's your excuse for the biden administration? LOL
empanadas · 26-30, M
Yeah that birther conspiracy is pretty sus. It was very much race related. Also, it wouldn't even matter because Obama's mother is an American citizen. So even if he was born somewhere else, he could still become president because he is a natural born citizen. I don't even like Obama but I have to call out when I see bs.
I have always thought this as well, since day one
