My father gave me some great advice when I was about twenty
He said never argue politics with anyone. You will not change their mind, and they will not change yours.

There are do many political threads. Can we please discuss music. I am sorry if I thread crapped or what y'all call it
PEACE

Sometimes thread crapping is a good thing. But to be fair this is the Whipping Post. It was created to as a place to keep these incessant and often asinine conversations separate from the music threads. So if you don't want to discuss politics it's best to stay away from the WP, especially during an election year. But if you see political threads in another area of the website then crap away!

This disgust has been growing over the last 20 years, and rightfully so in my opinion. The failure of either party to recognize and respond to the disenfranchisement of the American voter is epic, and shows how out of touch they truly are.


Doesn't it go a little deeper than that, though? Voters have a stake in this too. Once politics got turned into the fanbases of two rival sports teams, everything else fell by the wayside.

If everyone is guilty of error, then no one is. Just ask them.

I know none of this stuff matters to his base, but the rest of us just keep shaking our heads in amazement that this stuff continues from a presumptive nominee....


The Disturbing Truth About This Black Family That Supposedly Supports Donald Trump

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump seems to take any opportunity to tout his popularity with minority voters even when it's completely fabricated.

On Saturday, Trump quoted a tweet from user @Don_Vito_08, who had written, "Thank you Mr. Trump for standing up for our country!" and called for his followers to #VoteTrump2016 and join him on the #TrumpTrain. Accompanying the tweet was a now-deleted photo of a black family alongside a meme reading, "American families for Trump. We need a common sense president."



It didn't take long for Twitter users to use their own common sense, and sleuthing skills, to figure out that the tweet was a sham. User @MarkCzerniec pointed out that the photo @Don_Vito_08 and Trump had shared was ripped from a WCPO Cincinnati story about the 27th Annual Midwest Black Family Reunion which took place in August 2015.



According to BuzzFeed, the family photo is among the first Google image results when searching "black family." And what's more, after speaking with Eddie Perry one of the people in the photo BuzzFeed determined that the family hadn't known Trump (or anyone else) would be using it.

"When I saw it, I immediately knew it was political propaganda," Perry told the site. He said a friend had sent him a screenshot of the tweet on Saturday morning.

He continued, "Why use it without asking for someone's permission? Why use our image without asking?" Perry told BuzzFeed that his family hasn't publicly endorsed Trump, or any candidate, this election season.

Trump has taken advantage of the sketchy stylings of @Don_Vito_08 before. The watermark on the family photo in the original tweet (@Don_Vito_08's Twitter avi) also appeared on a meme Trump tweeted out comparing his wife Melania Trump to Ted Cruz's spouse Heidi Cruz.

But this recent Twitter faux pas comes at a particularly coincidental moment. Trump was recently criticized for his comments at a rally on Friday, when he pointed to a black man in the audience and exclaimed, "Look at my African-American over here!" Trump singled out the man, who NPR identified as a man named Gregory Cheadle, as evidence of his "tremendous African-American support."

"I am not a Trump supporter," Cheadle told NPR. "I went to go hear Donald Trump because I have an open mind."

It isn't about right and left anymore, it is about right and wrong.

Graham to Trump backers: 'If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it'

Washington (CNN) - South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham urged Republicans backing Donald Trump to rescind their endorsements following the presumptive Republican nominee's comments about judges' ethnicity and religion.

"This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy," Graham told The New York Times regarding Trump's comments.

"If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it," he added. "There'll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary" Clinton.

I agree with Graham 100% on this. Someday the people who continue to support Trump will look back and realize that they were very wrong.

So much manufactured outrage over this. Has Lindsi Graham or Paul Ryan ever expressed any outrage over illegals commiting murder in San Francisco? The only off ramp i am looking for is the PC culture and obamas liberal agenda.

How many times has Donald criticized HC for using a teleprompter? Yet here he is doing the same - the epitome of hypocrisy. A teleprompter is probably the best thing for him because when he goes off script everyone knows he's going to say something bat $hit crazy. It's really not his fault because he just can't control himself.

Pretty obvious that's going to be the strategy used to defeat Trump. He's a racist. Go with that tactic and Hillary will lose. The race card has been so badly overplayed that the word racist doesn't even mean anything anymore. Most people are sick to death of the race card, and the one's that aren't wouldn't vote for a Republican anyway.

Trump is playing the race card, and he owns it and by extension so do his supporters. What you don't seem to like is the reaction to the race card that Trump keeps playing. And the reaction is not just coming from the left, it is also coming from conservative stalwarts within the GOP, some of the very same people who constantly rail against political correctness because they know the difference and that this is not about being PC. And the reactions will keep coming as long as Trump keeps displaying racist behavior. Strategically, Trump will lose because he has no coherent policy positions other than "I'm building a wall and Mexico will pay for it" and even on that one he can't back it up with how that is going to happen, just that it will somehow happen. And you and others are getting sick of the reactions because you'd rather not have to own it yourself for supporting a candidate who keeps playing the race card in the most racist way possible on an almost daily basis.

Should the judge in the Trump University case be recused because of his Hispanic heritage?

The only way to find out would be for Trump's lawyers to file a motion, which of course they won't do because it is such a ridiculous notion.

Hey, I made a rhyme!

You make a lot of assumptions here. What makes you think I'm sick of reactions? I don't even care. It's all just chatter from people I have little or no respect for and doesn't concern me one bit.

Trump is NOT playing the race card. If you disagree, please provide a list of all the people he's accused of being racist.

No opinion. I don't care either way. Nor do I care about the case. Opinions vary all over the map on whether the courses offered were beneficial or not. And ff high pressure selling was a crime we'd need a
lot more prisons.

High pressure selling is not a crime. Fraud is. The verdict isn't in yet on what went on at Trump U. You should care about the case if you want to be an informed voter. If not the facts of the case then at least be interested in the behavior of the would-be-president defendant. His actions when faced with adversity are telling, no?
