Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 13, 2020

You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and had worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone that wasn't a straight, white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities. But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with. I wanted to understand their perspective, believing it would confirm that they were filled with hate for anyone that wasn't like them.

Imagine her surprise when the Deplorables were right, and everyone who votes Democrat are the real racists!

The nearly complete dissection of politics and current events from her reasons for supporting Trump is... artful.
Reminds me a lot of the pieces Scott Adams wrote about how Trump cons people; she's doing the same thing.

#4 - that is so true.

This story, if this woman's CV is true, is sad. There was an extremely well written and actually balanced response to her in the comments. In one portion of the response the responder referenced violence, and this "20 year Democrat" cited youtube videos of Antifa violence as proof the respondent was wrong. It was a significant moment.

For someone that promotes "mindfulness" she appears to be fairly clueless about basic algorithms used by companies like youtube to feed you more and more of what you just watched. She appears to be fully into "truthiness."

She also appears to have a strong need to belong - above everything. I get that, but all she's done is trade one crutch for another.

Then you read all the supporters of her new found Trump embrace, and you can watch the reinforcement and propagation of the lies building and building. Reinforcing and building her new belief system. What she relates in her "experience" as facts aren't facts at all. She does, however, choose to believe them, perhaps because of the emotional support and sense of unity she felt with the Trump people in the audience, or some other rationalization.

Extremely informative if you step back and take a look at what is going on.

It doesn't necessarily take getting mugged to turn a "liberal" into a conservative.

Yes, Jeff, they do. I said as much in #5.
I deliberately stayed away from 'self-radicalization' because using that term in this context would rankle trump people, though it happens in all kinds of scenarios and situations

You wish to call it an epiphany because you agree with he result.

I've had epiphanies. I was actually born-again, once, which is the classic definition. I've also had insights and changes in perspective, which are more of a "light bulb came on" low-level epiphany.

Believe what you want. After the second reading, I'm more inclined to believe this is fiction.

Let's get to what enrages the unreasonable members of the left.....

"The more voices outside of the left I listened to, the more I realized that these were not bad people. They were not racists, nazis, or white supremacists. We had differences of opinions on social and economic issues, but a difference of opinion does not make your opponent inherently evil. And they could justify their opinions using arguments, rather than the shouting and ranting I had seen coming from my side of the aisle."

That's the "fiction" referenced.

Have you? Who here is in a position to call this "fiction" unless they've attended at least 1 of them to see for themselves?

Oh, and BTW, tell me you've been to a Trump rally so I can say it's "fiction"...which is what you are doing with this author.

It could be fiction...I'm in no position to say otherwise.

But I actually know many strong Trump supporters. Personal and professional relationships. I see many regular posters here consistently imagine they know trump voters........obviously they don't.

Yav,

It happens both ways.

Take DR Joe, for instance. When he first arrived on this site he was a Libertarian. Now, he's really far from being a Libertarian and is one of the more left-leaning members of this site.

Maybe epiphany isn't the best word, but people's perspectives change as they are exposed to new ideas. I tried googling it but couldn't find it but about a year ago a lifelong liberal (somewhat prominent person within the media) decided to travel the country and visit conservative enclaves. He was fairly shocked to discover that the people he met were nothing like the nasty caricatures he'd come to assume due to how everybody else within his bubble viewed those people. He claims to have become a conservative as a result of his experiences.

It happens. I have no idea whether or not the embedded piece is fiction or not. It could very well be fiction. But it may just as well be true.

Ebs speaks to this all of the time - people claim they "know" people with whom they disagree. Obviously, they don't. JPW is a classic example of this. The number he constantly uses is 95% of the people he disagrees with are "schitheaps". 95%.

Was that really how she viewed and expected things to be at a Trump rally?

I don't know why not....read the tripe posted here about them from folks who are convinced it must be that way. It's not a stretch to assume there are a faction of leftists truly living in a bubble and would be astonished to see how much their individual prejudices being challenged.

Now, Trump is always going to present the best case he can. And yes, he lies. This is provable. But the strength of this rally wasn't about the facts and figures. It was a group of people who felt like they had someone in their corner, that would fight for them. Some people say "well obviously they're having a great time. They're in a cult." I don't think that's true. The reality is that many people I spoke to do disagree with Trump on things. They don't always like his attitude. They wish he wouldn't tweet so much. People who are in cults don't question their leaders. The people I spoke with did, but the pros in their eyes far outweighed the cons. They don't love him because they think he's perfect. They love him despite his flaws because they believe he has their back.

Understand, the author hasn't changed her ideology nor changed her position about Trump...this is merely a broader understanding why some people still stand with him. It's shocking to her they aren't all cultists.

Did he? Do you see any self-awareness in his post?

I don't see the other team as bad or evil. To generalize further, most people are very good people.

When they get political they get nasty. Jordan Peterson work comes to mind, the reason they get nasty is that your mind needs to defend its ideas/culture etc. If it didn't it doesn't have a model of the world and the world appears as chaos.

This is why as Donner points out a house divided will not stand. When the divide is so great anger ensues.

Its all a natural response, the issue is many here don't have the ability to understand what I am writing, nor the ability to control that natural urge.

Couple things:

1. What arguments? Seems like zero actual justifications were referenced.
2. What shouting and ranting, by whom, about what? "My side of the aisle," does that mean actual politicians, or Bernie Bros like SheepleSchism.
3. Being able to justify an opinion doesn't make it valid. Deniers justify their denial through Al Gore's ownership of a private jet, for example. But they're still deniers, and manmade global warming is still real.

If you can't tell you're being paced when you read this, I can only assume you're generally okay with four more years of Trump, because that's where this diatribe is supposed to lead the reader.

The reason this particular one is getting a lot of attention seems to be more of the media presence of the person writing it.

No. It was reading other things on her website, her work, her opinions, and her interactions with her "knitting" group - followed by her repeating discredited trump talking-points after her 'conversion.' She swallowed everything all at once and remembered it all well enough to write an article citing trope after trope, or this isn't what it is being presented to be.

The population of Los Angeles county is bigger than most the states in the union and last I checked, approximately equal to the population of the 20 least populated states.

Therefore, I would assess my observation of the drastic increase of homeless in this city to be a better gauge of how our economy is doing than a survey about unemployment rates or stats on homelessness.

Whoa, whoa. Suffering? All that's happening is since 1975, practically all the gains in household income have gone to the top 20% of households. And since 1996, dividends and capital gains have grown faster than any other category of pre-tax income.

This is true, but it doesn't jibe with the portrait she paints of Democrats throughout the piece:

"There are extremes in both parties that I am uncomfortable with, but I also fundamentally believe that most people on both sides are good, decent human beings who want the best for the country and have dramatic disagreements on how to get there. But until we start seeing each other as human beings, there will be no bridging the divide. I refuse to be a part of the divisiveness any longer. I refuse to hate people I don't know simply because they choose to vote for someone else. If we're going to heal the country, we have to start taking steps toward one another rather than away."

This begs the question of Donald Trump himself, ranter-in-chief, whose rally she had such a good time attending:

"The more voices outside the left that I listened to, the more I realized that these were not bad people. They were not racists, nazis, or white supremacists. We had differences of opinions on social and economic issues, but a difference of opinion does not make your opponent inherently evil. And they could justify their opinions using arguments, rather than the shouting and ranting I saw coming from my side of the aisle."

You link states, homelessness is on the rise - #56 | Posted by ClownShack at 2020-02-13 08:58 PM

Correct.

The economy is so great, the number of homeless sleeping on the streets is greater than ever! - #52 | Posted by ClownShack at 2020-02-13 04:40 PM

Still a lie, told by ClownShack-the-liar. As my citation proves.

Stop wasting my time with your garbage
I will stop wasting your time with 'truth'...you've made it very clear that you consider it garbage.

Sorry you're allergic to facts.

But, it is what it is.

6. Accounting tricks make it hard to know if U.S. homelessness has increased or decreased since 2007. The federal government has shifted from promoting transitional housing (offering homeless a room in a temporary housing facility) to rapid re-housing (offering assistance to defray the cost of moving into and renting a private home). The government does not count those in rapid re-housing as homeless. "The approximately 110,000 bed reduction in transitional housing between 2007 and 2018 has been almost fully offset by an approximately 109,000 bed increase in rapid rehousing," the report states. "[I]t is not clear that people living in one type of program are more homeless' than people living in the other type."

Fact is, there is no actual way to determine what the total number of homeless people is due to the fact it's impossible to get an accurate count.

Fact is, there are more people living on the streets of Los Angeles than ever.

"The number of homeless sleeping on the streets is greater than ever!"

'I was so upset with the hate coming from the left that I went to a Trump rally, bought a "F your feelings" t-shirt, and started screaming at the media there.'

Good hardworking Germans loved Hitler. Many were "good people" kind to animals, would never think of hurting anyone THEMSELVES. But mass hysteria turned the German nation into a cult of death with,euthansisa of the handicapped,imprisonment without trial of dissenters,ultimately, world war and mass killing of -------------------- dayAdventists,etc. Most of the people who did these horrors were ordinary folk. What we would call salt of the earth,good people. They were like the the rats being charmed by the pied Piper only to kill and blight the lives of everyone not them,not dance into the sea. Trump WILL leader us into similar horrors if we do not wake up. His music has already charmed half the nation into a blind stupor of madness. If he is re-elected,I believe he will start a world war and the Trump revolution will be complete. Not quasi dictatorship,but the real thing. Please trumpies wake up my brothers,the hour is very late and time is short.
