Or the one she said most recently, to put her opponents in 'happy camps'

Now I caution you against thinking that being forcibly taken against your will and placed in an internment camp is a happy occasion, why even with a pack of Capri Suns and some Monopoly and Hungry Hungry Hippos, I dare say it still would not be fun.

And in fact, Mark does not know how good a Trump presidency is going to be. It will be a golden era

yeah i read that vox article too but that's bullshit, there's arrogant condescension aimed at the uneducated groups on both sides.

i just think the doctrine of social liberalism necessarily entails some visible expressions of scorn and indignation. i think the perception that hillary clinton is a particularly bad example of that, or that there's a particularly bad climate of it right now, has been heavily manipulated. i'm not defending smug liberals but i definitely think there are a lot of smug conservatives out there. you just have to be in a social situation that favours them for it to come out.

its as simple as a large number of people wanting to shake the system up as corruption is as exposed as ever right now, a lot of those people were bernie sanders supporters, but in the 11th hour could not justify voting for clinton who would be more of the status quo, completely embedded in the system, that at least trump is a complete curveball

the dnc fucked up by not propping up the right candidate, im almost certain bernie would have won

They're not just saying random shit, John Oliver's real opinions are in there, even if he hypes it up

And it makes the audience lazy too. wow drumpf so funny I have no other thoughts but that's a funny name hah. He's so orange how did he get so orange. A tangerine can't be president.

the donald has consistently been spam upvoting their smug nonsense to the top of reddit for like years now

to me it seemed it was the "left" that was actually much quieter and apathetic this time around especially once bernie lost

Are you retarded

wasn't this my point in the first place? conservatism inherently isolates groups from one another while liberals attempt to do the opposite. the problem isn't necessarily that liberals are 'smugger' about it.

in fact what we are calling smugness inherently often comes from the young voters does it not, and given that there was a significant increase in support for the right among the young during this election cycle than previously............

in any case, trump himself is the worst for authoritative proclamations on people's moral character. i dunno if he's supposed to give liberals a taste of their own medicine or some shit

i don't think any of those guys rely solely on superficial shit, only in particularly weak moments. and i definitely don't think tangerine jokes are what made people vote against the dems. i think that's just your particular bugbear

But he's also a hypocrite who promotes images of gun violence while being outspoken against the Second Amendment, which is a protected right. I know many Europeans disagree with the idea of private gun ownership but the Bill of Rights to most Americans would be like when a religious person says the words of their holy book are dictated directly by God. They're completely inviolable. To say that one of these things should be heavily restricted or eliminated would be the equivalent of a direct threat against one's life, and many people have died to protect them, and many people will still die because they believe in it that much.
