It’s not “rigged” though in the normal sense, it’s “fucking stupid” or “utterly ridiculous” or “corrupt” (in a broad sense, not a specifically criminal sense), which is rather different. You seem to imply there was a conspiracy (necessarily secret) against Sanders. No, it’s worse than that, there was no need for one, the super-delegate system ensured the chosen candidate of the centrists would win, and they were somewhat open about it.
Which points? About Iran? I mean, I honestly refused to engage with that kind of lunacy, but as you admit it was a fuck-up, then next time, maybe I will okay? Just stay away from the extreme far-right fake news shit. The Times of Israel isn’t a disaster but it’s right-of-centre by Israeli politics standards (mildly) so is hardly a strong source for “Iran is up to no good”.
I see The Times (London) has something along those lines, but obviously paywalled, and The Times has a long history of picking the lying propaganda side when it comes to starting wars in the Middle East, and having VERY bad sources, so…
Not all of us. I have none of those things.
Further, my wife grew up in literal dirt poverty, supported by a single mother who worked 12+ hours/day as a waitress, and surrounded by right-wing nutjobs, yet somehow did not become a fearful bigot, so I am a bit skeptical of “the environment made me hate black people and foreigners, officer!”.
Also, just on terrorism, everyone is so fucking chicken-shit. I grew up in London in the 80s and 90s. I have felt at least 4 separate bomb blasts. How did I end way LESS scared of terrorism than most people?
Why is anyone scared of terrorism? The chances of you being harmed by it are much smaller than almost anything else, really. Pfah. Humans. Barely sentient. (If we even are!)
EDIT - Also, problem with the “they feel left out” theory is that the VAST majority of Trump supporters are relatively affluent (if you don’t believe me, tell me so I can go dig up sources). Only a small proportion are poor, because people aren’t THAT dumb. You look at my wife’s relatives in the rural midwest and it’s notable that all the ones loudly proclaiming their support for Trump are the ones with four cars, a huge house (or multiple houses), kids in college, and often own their own business and so on. Whereas the ones who had it rougher are typically either non-voters, or vote Democrat (though most disliked Hillary, that is true).
God people are SO FUCKING STUPID though. Why Trump if you believe that? Not Hillary, I get it, she’s into that sort of thing, but Trump is literally part of that machine! AERRHRHGGHGHGHHGGH BRAIN EXPLODES
It’s like voting for Hitler because you hate genocide, instead of I dunno, someone was just kind of a fan of the Nazis.
