I dislike trump because I don't think he's a good candidate to be president. He brags about avoiding taxes. He personally attacked his opposition. He would blatantly misuse statistics to support his arguments. When questioned about things he said he would act like he never said that and change his position on it. 

I'm pro choice. I don't think deporting all illegal immigrants and banning Muslims from entering the country is a good way to handle immigration issues. I disagree that we should relax regulations and empower the coal and oil industries.

If you want to persuade me that Trump was a better choice than his alternatives, you should back up his policies rather than calling his detractors "simple minded" or telling them to go fuck themselves.

Realtalk, though: What in the world is "cultural Marxism"? I've heard that term for over a year and still never ascertained a straight answer.

The term, as you have likely encountered it, comes from a conspiracy theory involving the Frankfurt School wherein unseen forces use multiculturalism, political correctness and other such progressive politics to subvert, takeover and destroy Western civilization as we know it. In strictly academic circles, "cultural Marxism" was the process of trying to apply Marx's thoughts on socioeconomic to cultural matters but it's become a sort of boogeyman in recent years, mostly for right wingers. If someone talks about it in a non-conspiratorial context they probably are just referring to multiculturalism and the like.

^This except I am in the camp where I do not believe it is a conspiracy theory.  Thank you for explaining that.

Please keep it civil. If this thread turns into a shit-slinging competition, I'll lock it.

>mfw I realized the former host of the Apprentice is going to be the one who deals with Kim Jong-un in the near future
It was surreal enough when Dennis Rodman went over there for a spell. This is gonna be like an electric boogaloo.
