You often hear that Trumpism is not the same as the Republican platform. After two years of Trump it is pretty obvious what the difference is. It is hate. The guy drips hatred at all of his MAGA events. He is a classic demagogue who gets a crowd of other haters riled up with chants about some group of people that he says they should all hate. In 2016 it was Hillary, people from south of the border, elitists (which is ironic because Trump is the very definition of elitism), and the media. Now it is the squad. And Silicon Valley. And the Fed when it won't lower interest rates. And many of our former allies.

The Republican party never had hate as an element of their platform; they never have gone out of their way for disadvantaged people but they never hated them like Trump does. I am not sure America has ever had a political climate in it that was so filled with pure hatred like this one. It is really sad that this is what America has come to be.

I think there is just as much and probably more hatred dripping from the opposing party and the media.

Trumpism, in my opinion, is a response to the Obergefell vs. Hodges decision, the White House being lit up rainbow, and the right-wing's apparent loss of the culture war. After same-sex marriage was legalized, many conservatives lost their minds and decided that "fighting fire with fire" was the best strategy. Out of that arose the Trump movement. And it's never been only about same-sex marriage or abortion. It's the very idea of "white Christian America" and preserving it against what they see to be an antagonistic left.

Both the republican party and democrat party have been hijacked by complete idiots.

leftists continually describe actions of those they don't like as 'hate', 'racism', 'xenophobia', ad nauseum.

*yawn*

I hate entitled people.

I hate lazy people.

I hate people unwilling to work.

I hate people who refuse to accept responsibility for their behaviors.

Yes, I am dripping with hate and I don’t have one ounce of shame about it.

^^^This. The time is right for a third party to get some traction beyond just voter registration rolls.

It was definitely around civil unions and the like in states across the country. But it began this way looooong before same sex marriage was legalized nationwide.

The GOP leadership has fallen in line with Trump.

The GOP is Trump's party.

The GOP has become the party of hate, sexual predator's, white nationalists and pedophiles. The hypocrisy coming from the GOP concerning morals, economics and white collar crime is beyond all reason.
