Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 04, 2018

The Republican Party has aired eight times as many ads focused on crime and public safety as it did during the last midterm election, according to a HuffPost analysis, a reflection of President Donald Trump's strategy of trying to fire up the GOP's base with fear.

Yet they omit what crimes they are doing.

I wonder when Comrade Sheepleski will be along to opine on the lack of policy in the GOP's platform that will help the everyday citizen.

According to what I've read, he's on vacation.

But you bring up an excellent point.

The Trumpublican Party has nothing but fearmongering.

They've got a real divide and conquer strategy.

If enough white people are scared of other races.

If enough Christians are afraid of other races.

If enough straight people are scared of the LGBT.

Then the GOP will win the midterms in a few days.

Oh noes! Can't have any "anti-dem" posts. Every post must be DNC-approved or Partisan Hacks might cry in their beer.

The ads are aimed at your team because your team is the frightened team. You go for ghost stories every time. You have this bloated sense of self importance... that goes with the despair that is corroding you and your kind from within. You are killing yourself in record numbers because the policies you supported have sucked the life out of your communities.

Again Nulliflake... you do it to yourselves. We do nothing but point it out over and over... repeating the cacophony of stupid committed by the orange blimp and his chorus of warts that you elected to represent your wishes. We just show it over and over and over and over. You do it to yourself

With Republicans holding more governorships, Legislatures, all three branches of the Federal Government anyone who watches those commercials and doesn't blame them is crazy.

I can honestly say there is far more freedom in the Democratic Party for diversity of opinion than there is in the Republican Party. Pretending otherwise just makes you look unhinged.

30 years ago? Completely agree. Nowadays? Nope. I freely admit the GOP tent isn't very large. Having said that the Dem tent is so far on the left....pro-life Democrats are extinct, for example.

"pro-life Democrats are extinct, for example."

Nonsense. Democrats are pro-life, they just--

a) believe the woman, and not the government should control the woman's body, and
b) believe in caring for the woman and child AFTER birth.

Danforth,

Being "pro-life", from a political standpoint, means believing abortion should be against the law.

"Pro-choice", from a political standpoint, means that abortion should be legal.

Pro-life Democrats are extinct.

No they're not. Stop making shht up Jeff.

Being "pro-life", from a political standpoint, means believing abortion should be against the law.

And there are democrats who believe this.

Stop championing your strawman, Jeff. Your attempt to paint the Democratic Party as 100% anything is ridiculous. You're too accustom to Republicans who force their politicians to sign an oath and goosesept in unison.

But in reality, that's --------. Republicans aren't "pro-life", they're "pro-controlling pregnant women". If they were actually pro-life, they'd be willing to invest in prenatal care, early childhood development, and child services.

They certainly had a longer time on this earth than Never Trump Republicans.

In fact, Never Trump Republicans turned out to be the Bigfoot of political posturing. Just an elaborate hoax.

The real mystery is where the hell your soul disappeared to. No one has seen any signs of it for years either. Alien abduction, pod transfer, frontal lobotomy...?

Hold up.

The GOP is running crime ads.

But is cutting grants for anti-terrorism programs because they are no longer needed.

Which is it, Nulli? I'm confused.

Crime is a more useful tool for the GOP than abortion. But tax cuts for the 1% is more important than both combined.
