Carol: Hey, “retards” is word of the week here! I can take credit for that by mentioning “Trumptard” just prior to all the retard posts. Fun fact: many Snapchat Murder websleuths happen to be Trumptards. Why is that do you think, Robert?
In part it is because they are from that Godforsaken hillbilly red state. The whole state seems to have been hit by a Retard Virus if you ask me. The people in that state are not very educated. Their college graduation rate I believe is only 11%, and that is on the low end of US states. They seem to cultivate ignorance in that place and most people seem to be aggressively or even belligerently ignorant. They are actually arrogant and defiant about their ignorance.
I do not know what we are going to do about states like that. I want to say they are beyond hope, but that is probably not true. My Mom said that state has been conservative forever somehow, but that is probably not true. However, the state has been conservative for a very long time. 50-60 years ago, they commonly elected Democrats, but that’s not the case anymore. I imagine the Reagan Democrats were very big here as they were throughout the Rust Belt. All of this may be because this state was heavily populated by White Southerners, especially people from Appalachia moving north maybe for jobs and such a the same time many Blacks were moving north from for the same reason in the mid 20th Century. There were a lot of industrial jobs up there that attracted Southerners looking for work.
Web sleuths tend to be rightwingers. That is because they have the Cop Personality and they really hate criminals.It’s too bad and I think it shows how we on the Left have screwed up. If you hate criminals so much you want to be a detective, you cannot possibly be a liberal or on the Left. Because you know the Left is soft on crime, they are bleeding hearts and they want to set all the criminals free and let them all out early. It’s sad. I hate criminals and I actually think like a cop (more like a detective) and I am on the Left.
These people don’t get it. Go back to Stalin’s USSR, Mao’s China, Ho’s Vietnam, or Castro’s Cuba and try to commit some common crime. I mean like theft. God forbid burglary. Or God help you some violent crime.
The Commie regimes were absolutely vicious in their treatment of street criminals, and even worse towards violent criminals. Were they anti-cop? Hell, they were damned Police STATES for Chrissakes. They were practically run by cops.
True some liberals are bleeding hearts and have been associated with some sentence reduction, but actually that has been much exaggerated. A lot so-called bleeding heart-ism was just common sense like opposition to the death penalty.
I think we need to bring back the idea that a lot of us liberals really hate criminals too, violent ones especially. Or that it would be OK to be a detective or even a street cop and vote Democrat. Cops used to vote Democrat back East at least until 1980 or so. Or maybe it started in the 1960’s. They were often White ethnics who saw themselves properly as members of the working class so they voted for the party of the working class White ethnics, the Democrats.
