I remember how democrats would get a heart attack over those things and they never happened. Now the USA has a president that promotes islamophobia and since his followers believe anything he says then you know what they think about anybody who wears a hijab.

Well, those were merely rehashed wingnut tropes from what was claimed that Bush and then before that CLinton would do.

Just look around this forum, we have a few dozen posters that without exaggeration have some mental issues over politics and a tenuous grasp on reality.

You would do well to understand what wingnut tropes are being directed at Trump as well.

P.S. How you left abortion, taxes and corporations (oil prices in particular) off that list?

The USA may never recover from the damage Obama caused during his 8 years of reign.

Per thread title - same thing that happened to all the left wing predictions about Dubyah, Reagan, Nixon, Ike, etc, and the same thing that will happen to every left-wing prediction about Trump.

Here's what I say to the hysterics on the losing side of our quadrennial theater of the absurd - the day after the election, when you are at your lowest point, morose beyond consolation, fearing the end of the world as we know it....write down every horrible, scary thing you honestly believe will happen in the next four years because Bad_Man_01 is the President instead of your preferred Not_So_Bad_Man_02. Write it out all nice and detailed. Now, put it in an envelope, seal that envelope, and then put it in a drawer.

OK, now four years later, take out the envelope and look at the list. You'll find out that very little on that list came anywhere close to becoming a reality, that you were simply being emotional and hysterical, and nothing with our government's crony corporatist plutocracy changes much year to year, and hasn't since around WW I or so. Repeat this process enough times, and a truth will sink in...the game is rigged and your participation and belief in that game is a fool's errand.

Yep and they delusionally think that only the other side does it, or rationalize that it's ok because they're right...even when it turns out they were wrong about just about everything.

How bored does someone have to be to dig up two and a half year old pieces from AlterNut?

I think out of those ten, #4 probably got the most traction - and we are still seeing the effects of that. I do believe he had the most effect here.

#5 - That's Antifa, but not sure it's directly related to Obama.

#6 - That's continuously ongoing from the left.

#7 - We are being invaded by those from liberal states... but not driven by Obama. Invaded by illegals... somewhat Obama.
