Why is this place so toxic?

Grown men resorting to name calling and arguing online about political differences. Man, let it go.

Now this is pathetic - going after his child. And you wonder why the right contests the left's belief they have the social high ground while calling them deplorables.

Mind you, NSMB always tries to get personal, as well. You guys have gone after children in the past. Why is that?

First, you might, or might not remember the beating Chelsea Clinton took from the right as a first term child.
Not saying it's right but what goes around sometimes comes around.
2ndly, "deplorable" was HRC's spew, so it's disingenuous to attribute it to the "left", generally.

Apply it to the popular vote, then. And no, 2 wrongs do not make a right - and here people call Trump the bad man, eh. Jesus.

^ such a great example of alternative facts.

I'll counter that with the alt-fact that 71% of the world's surface is covered by water and water known to be blue. clearly the earth is majority democratic and Trump doesn't have a mandate to lead the free world.

Re: labelling oneself a Deplorable.

It's easy to get caught up in the spin cycle and miss what was actually said in favour of the optics of it all.

Clinton was fairly specific about what type of person she's putting into the deplorable basket: "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic - you name it".

If you identify as a Deplorable, you're identifying as one of those. Either a racist, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe, Islamaphobe or someone on their level.

You're not identifying yourself as one of the ignored working class, in that speech they were put into the other bucket, the one that she said needed to be understood and empathized with.

"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic - you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people - now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks - they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America."

So true.

And what's NSMB's excuse?

The hypocrisy of people acting like bigots by calling others bigots did not fall on deaf ears, and now those same people do not want to atone for their actions. Hence, the circular actions and similar dislike. It would be nice to change that, though.
