Trump is criminal insane

Successful female politicians always seem to get vilified by the patriarchal media and Ms. Taylor Greene is no exception.

The won the election fair and square with a broad range of support.

In addition to her embrace of QAnon, Greene has made a series of racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic comments, including alleging an “Islamic invasion” of government offices and accusing Jewish billionaire George Soros of collaborating with Nazis.

This tells us all we need to know about Greene and the types of misfits who indulge in the racist theories out there. Including birtherism, which has risen its ugly head again.

Oh please. Spare us just a little longer. You've been quiet for a bit, perhaps stunning yourself on the Black Sea, but I think you know as well as we do that QAnon is just a mad fantasy of the far right.

Greene is getting attacked because she is spreading facist conspiracy theories, not because she is a woman.

What “anti-semitic” comments has she made specifically, other than attacking a Billionaire who happens to be Jewish.

Keep in mind that Kuschner, whose family are victims of the Holocaust are affiliated with her supporters.

The media is just attacking her with random loaded accusations that a meant to trigger a simplistic emotional response.

racist... anti-Semetic...Islamophobic... blah blah blah

Many in Trump's base share the same beliefs.

Of course Trump can't come out and say he fully agrees. Instead he'll leave it in the air knowing many in his base will agree with him dog whistling conspiracy theories.

he supports QAnon, a convoluted, right-wing, pro-Trump conspiracy theory

Outside the compound of JZ Knight, the channeler for Ramtha, the 35,000 year old man whose 'wisdom' has attracted lots of wealthy people from Trump's ethnic group, is a giant Q.

Eh, anti-Semites and bigots get a backlash every time, and rightly so.

Nothing to do with gender.

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

Moscow and Washington, for example.

But not surprised that some people would support Q. They have form.

More right wing nutjobs. At this point it's expected.

She won in a hotbed of crazy, confederate flag waving, overall wearing, no teeth, racist rednecks, north Georgia. The most God forsaken place I've ever been to. Worse than Alabama or Mississippi. "Deliverance" on steroids.

Trump has zero interest in or knowledge of ideologies, things intellectual, philosophy, abstract thinking, ideas, or even words...Abstruse conspiracy theories like QAnon? No time for them either if they interfere with his busy schedule of studying the world on Fox, tweeting his reactions to his "enemies", foreign and domestic, and playing president and golf on weekends. Heck, I even doubt if he can pronounce QAnon any better than he did when reading off Yo-semite writ large with a sharpie..

And she is also a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, which surprises me not one bit.

President Donald Trump on Friday twice ignored a question about whether he supports QAnon, a convoluted, right-wing, pro-Trump conspiracy theory.

Of course he ignored it - he's looked out at the crowds and seen the "Q" T Shirts and signs that almost out number the Confederate Flags....

I mean, these are the weak-minded that think 5G network towers cause COVID, aircraft contrails spew mind control drugs, Bigfoot is a Democrat...

Is it such a leap to think JFK Jr is alive and blogging from a basement in DC of the Deep State?

They're full-blown, out of this world crazies...

The Democrat party in the end didn’t seem too comfortable in the end to elect a Jewish socialist, that’s twice now, they don’t want to admit it, but they sabotaged this guy and his political campaign twice now.

Outside the compound of JZ Knight, the channeler for Ramtha, the 35,000 year old man whose 'wisdom' has attracted lots of wealthy people from Trump's ethnic group, is a giant Q.

But can you prove it? Usually liberals can’t, but putting it out in the news, easy pie.

This is not proof in the sense of how the term is used in science or the courts. But it's a pretty good indication

Cult leader JZ Knight — who believes she channels a 35'000 year old god named Ramtha — has officially branded her compound with a giant Q and is celebrating on Facebook

Thanks for demonstrating my earlier points.

You cannot bring yourself to condemn Greene and the Presidential endorsement.

No condemnation of the birtherism, either.

Instead, the usual transparent tactics of diversion and attacking liberals.

Ain't that the truth, which is why we've got a safely conservative DNC establishment ticket to produce a geriatric Potus, BUT also backed up by a kick*ss Veep who will soon make history as America's first woman president, for better or for worse.

And if I said that, it doesn’t matter who these people support they can support anyone they want to, it doesn’t mean that the president supports them just because they do.

Yes, Trump never said he thought that, he just reiterated the words that was told to him, now I probably wouldn’t have done that, but he’s allowed to reiterate and say with the person who’s a lawyer and tell him.

Liberals are attacking everyone else that go against their radical political orthodoxy.

Eh, he does support Greene. Did you read the article?

In other words, it's fine for him to push the racist birther agenda - again.

In what kind of world is it considered radical to call out bigotry and racism?

I did and the Dems support BLM and Antifa so what's the difference and mind you, people can support whomever they want, I just find it rich when liberals want to call someone a racist, but give their own a pass

In other words, it's fine for him to push the racist birther agenda - again.

He didn't push, he was asked and he answered and sadly, he took the bait. I wouldn't have entertained the question because liberals will always push the race card, always.

 In what kind of world is it considered radical to call out bigotry and racism?

Listen to the last 3 months of Joe Biden clips. But yeah as Biden said, if you ain't black, don't vote for him.

Yeah he loves the mic. He loves to be adored, worshipped, kowtowed to, idolized, having all focus on himself and having everything revolve around himself.

As did the last President, and?

He has sick delusions of deityhood. He loves his cult of personality

I won’t lie, I think him and Obama do love themselves a lot. lol

At least you recognize Obama as a POTUS and are not falling for irtbag's 'birther' crap.

So why do you fall for Trump's lies then?

I never did and the Dems were wrong to start the ball rolling with that conspiracy garbage and the GOP were wrong for continuing it.

So why do you fall for Trump's lies then?

I don’t fall for his or the Democrats lies, especially.

The decent members of the GOP didn’t run with birtherism. The trash ran with it.
