given that this election cycle is more of a spin cycle on both candidates, it comes as no surprise that rational arguments don’t help. In most cases the disgusting representation of Trump wins of the more serious policy failures of Clinton. Add that facts don’t count.. simple example is that a woman protecting her husband from female accusers and a out-of-court settlement of 850k $ is less weighted than suddenly found accusers of harassment, who by the way should be asked why they never tried to shake down the Trump-machine (and who will disappear from the spin-cycle once election is over). What counts more – the rational weighting of facts OR the impression build by a quite single-minded media-front ?
Anyhow, similarly the media seem to think that one side will be rebellious when losing, but if we just look at the facts on the ground, it’s not the side the media say it will be.. and Scott Adams does express this very nicely.
If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it.
If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car.
if you speak of Trump at work you could get fired.
On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood.
We know from Project Veritas that Clinton supporters tried to incite violence at Trump rallies. The media downplays it.
We also know Clinton’s side hired paid trolls to bully online.
Go and read the rest. It’s worth it and this blog will still be there.
