Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Speaker Nancy Pelosi doubled down on her insults to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying she was giving him a 'dose of his own medicine' and comparing him to a little kid who comes in with doggy do on his shoes. The speaker defended calling the president 'morbidly obese' earlier this week, saying she was quoting factual information from doctors. 'I didn't say anything about the president. I gave him a dose of his own medicine,' she said when asked about her remarks during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill. 'I was only quoting what doctors had said about him and I was being factual in a very sympathetic way.'

The only way to beat Trump is to become Trump. There is no moral high ground here. To beat Hitler the allies had to become as murderous against the Germans as they were against everyone else.

Trump has lowered America and made us coarse and simple. We needed little encouragement to become so but here we are. Pelosi should run with this; ridicule is the one weapon Trump's Teflon can't foil. He collapses under it. Like a vampire in the sun.

#9 Partially true. The dems could use a Leona Helmsley that congratulates Trump for tricking and robbing poor people and then laughs at them.

Trumps base hate the thought of being recognized as the losers they are. That is why they are willing to defend Dr.Plump on injecting bleach.

The dems should channel that hatred back to the GOP, where it came from.

Somebody was going to have to.

They tried the highroad approach in 2016 and left the schoolyard taunt portion of the electoral field completely to the Repubs. I don't think they're going to make that mistake this time around.

But it is a sad statement about our electorate that that is even necessary.

Any Trumphluffer who whines about adjectives chosen to describe Benidict Donald Trump, the biggest liar, name-caller, most corrupt, racist, tyrant loving, grifting, self obsessed piece of human filth ever to occupy the Presidency can KMA on Main Street.

It's obvious that you, Gracie, love the bile and puke that spills from Presnit Benidict Donald Trump's ---- Lips.

I think there's a very fine line you have to be careful not cross when hitting back at Trump, otherwise you do get pulled down to his level. So far, Pelosi and Biden have stayed on the right side of it.

There is no level. Hit back harder than he hit you. That's the only thing Trump or his thuggy followers understand. Make HIM look weak and stupid. Humble him. Force him to give ground. Never willingly show weakness. He is like an animal. If you let him,he will run all over you.
Don't allow it. Always hit back harder than you were hit.

We need a brawler, running for president.

Swastikas have multiple meanings,some were religious totems and some are racist. Totemic swastikas are far older and more widespread throughout the world. Hitler was only 12 years, the other meanings were millennia old. Snoofy,you are one ignorant fellow. Or maybe that's all an act cause you're such a phony.

#23 If you asked me 6 years ago would I consider voting for Biden my answer would have been yes. It is clear his mental facilities have been affected by something. I was always a fan of his wife, she is one smart cookie. As for Cuomo, not a chance. His handling of COVID19 was horrible. And going on his brothers 'news' show just digs his grave deeper with each appearance.

Oh, but you think he should be out campaigning and risk getting infected? How convenient for your wanted outcome in November. Trump is doing all campaigning FOR Biden that Joe Blow could ever hope for. In the end, it won't matter as folks like you will get Trump reelected. But it'll be in spite of Trump's efforts to lose.

Just to be crystal clear:

In American politics, and as seen at American political rallies?

It only has one meaning.

I agree 100% with this. The one in the Nazi flag and ones modeled after it are easily identifiable as Nazi symbols. Any other type requires one to look at the context before making a judgement.

That's the way I see it. I'm pretty sure the Nazi Party flag and the flag of Nazi Germany were the only ones that used the swastika in that particular configuration.

Fake news.

The swastika only has one political meaning.

Much like the Confederate flag only has one political meaning.

People who deny that only have one political agenda.

#39 You're simple. Maybe this is just too ambiguous for you. Many cultures world-wide have other, innocuous meanings for the same symbol. Duh? I don't know how much more simply I can say it. You're trying to be obtuse. You don't even want to consider other views. Your mind is hermetically sealed.

Swastika bad. Nazi evil. If that was the only use the symbol EVER had,You Might Have a point.

Swastikas have been a nearly universal symbol found on every continent since prehistoric times.
Hitler is NOT the last word on them.

I'm not ignoring context, you are. You're saying that even contexts where people are sincerely displaying their religious symbols in a political context, it's okay to single out and harass followers of Asian religions for doing it in a way that monotheists wouldn't be.

You are making the false equivalence that a Hindu/Buddhist/Jain/Native American swastika is "evil" any context, even a political one.

My context is American politics.

You're the one who keeps trying to bait and switch Asian religion with American politics.

I'm gonna let you know something: This is how I can tell you're a phony.

But I'm willing to be wrong. Show me that symbol in use in a political context in the West where it doesn't mean what I say it means.

Help me try to see it your way.

The irony that's lost on you is that it's more politically correct to use a Nazi swastika in a provocative manner in American politics than it is to use a non-Nazi swastika in a sincere one. And you want to keep it that way. You don't lump all Muslims who display their religious or cultural symbols in political contexts in the West in with the violent bigots who co-opted those symbols, but you've indicated you're happy to do so with eastern religions. You say you want to see an example, but you've already decided it's a non-starter.
