Colin Kaepernick is an a-hole - Page 7

Here's a DU thread on Ginsburg's recent comments: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028221031

Gold, Jerry. Gold!

What that DU thread shows is what I hate about modern politics. Here's a woman that was foundational in so many things people of today, particularly women and minorities, take for granted. She's spent her entire life fighting for civil rights, etc. Now she says she thinks the kneeling thing is "dumb" and these fuckwits over on DU are shredding her, impugning her for being friends with Scalia, etc. It actually pisses me off.

Ginsburg is old, but she's not that old. She was appointed to the SC in the early 1990s.

Anyone who doesn't completely agree with your brand of orthodoxy is a heretic and, more than that, probably a bad person to boot.



Not to imply that Republicans are worse about this than Democrats, but Trump is an amazing test case. You see absolutely core party guys getting called "RINOs" because they aren't lining up to kiss Trump's ring. I really wonder if these people could even articulate what "Republican values" are, beyond "support the guy that I like or you suck." You'd think being a "RINO" would be a good thing for Trump supporters, but I guess it's just turned into a generic slur or something these days.

Trump is the ultimate RINO. It's incredible that he's somehow regarded as a right winger when he's basically a protectionist democrat from the 1990s.

And did other stuff like work for the ACLU where she co-founded the Women's Rights Project, argued several gender cases before the SCOTUS (wining most), etc.

And yeah, she is that old. 83.

I can't help but click on every DU link someone posts, but it is always a race to see whether my eyes start bleeding from the terrible design or my brain does from hitting my head against my desk over the stupidity.

Agree with Turk here.  Trump is the biggest RINO to ever run for office.  In another thread, someone made a comment about how they can't wait to see Hannity, et al. quickly disavow him when he loses, but I remember at least Rush being fairly critical of him in the early part of the primary.  I can't listen to Hannity for even 5 minutes (an occasional 15 minutes of Rush is at least entertaining), so I have no idea what he was saying about Trump.

His economic policies are closer to Bernie Sanders than anyone considered conservative.

That's why it's so hilarious when his supporters call people RINOs. It's like...none of those policies are Republican. The whole reason you like Trump is because he's not a conventional conservative politician. Of all the things to bash his critics with, why go with "RINO"?

Ginsburg apologized to Kapernick in a court statement today saying she had barely any idea what the protest was about when asked about it and said she should have shut up and not commented about it.

Most recently, during his December 6 Oval Office address on terrorism, Obama said: “My fellow Americans, I am confident we will succeed in this mission because we are on the right side of history.” It’s a phrase Obama loves: He’s used it 15 times, in debates; at synagogues; in weekly radio addresses; at fundraisers. Obama is almost as fond of its converse, “the wrong side of history,” which he has used 13 times; staffers and press secretaries have invoked it a further 16. (These figures are all based on the archives of the American Presidency Project at the University of California Santa Barbara.)

But the expressions are hardly original to Obama. Bill Clinton referred to “the right side of history” 21 times over his time in office, while his staffers added another 15. Clinton also mentioned the “wrong side of history” several times. Ronald Reagan, for his part, wryly resurrected Leon Trotsky’s relegation of the Mensheviks to the “dustbin” or “ash heap of history.” Speaking to the British Parliament in 1982, the Gipper said, “The march of freedom and democracy which will leave Marxism-Leninism on the ash-heap of history as it has left other tyrannies which stifle the freedom and muzzle the self-expression of the people.” Reagan used both translations of Trotsky’s phrase several more times.
