The not-bigoted conservatives sure can stomach a lot in the name of tax cuts.


I don't think that's a fair statement. I think most republicans would prefer a conservative tax code and equal rights for minorities.


I can't argue what they would prefer, but they are certainly stomaching this shit

Well, there are a multitude of issues for voters to consider and I think most republicans(and liberals for that matter) consider social justice just one issue out of many.

Likely because they think racist policies won't get approved?

If by homophobia and transphobia you mean something like this site's rule, then surely a lot of people would be hella scared that their humour sense could get themselves arrested.


I mean things like kicking trans people out of the military

and NOW VICE PRESIDENT mike pence's "Freedom to be a bigot" act

Right, and they are stomaching the bigotry because they consider other issues more important. We're in agreement.

The muslim ban was eventually effectuated

The trans military ban was eventually effectuated

The freedom to be a bigot law in indiana was eventually effectuated.

Why would anyone think that racist policies won't get approved?

I don't think there's anything wrong with suggesting that social justice isn't the overriding issue of our generation. Important, yes, but there ARE other things. And that doesn't make you racist to think so.

No, it really doesn't.

Yes, it really does, by definition.
part of the definition of adjacent

(used in combination)s
supporting or being an ally of a group or subculture without being a part of it:
She describes herself as queer-adjacent .

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/adjacent

If a person voted for donald trump, thus supporting him, a person that you called in this thread a racist

They are by definition, racist-adjacent.

That's like saying by voting Bill Clinton you support mysoginism and sexual harrassment.

Looking back, though, would Bill Clinton or Bob Dole(or Ross Perot) have been the better candidate?

I don't know anything about Bob Dole, tbh.

I would not, and do not, support the clintons in this cycle precisely because of these reasons

and I'm low key ashamed that it took me to 30 years old and the me too movement to evolve in this viewpoint
