Because of this:  
well, to be honest, i just think all of these doctrines are just fueled by laziness and jealousy.
who wants to be the slave of a society where all ranks will profit and exploit you, while you could be free and work for yourself, without having to take part into anything like anarcho~~, liberal~~ or socialo––
 
I’m not in the mood to argue with anyone, so I’ll just point out the fallacies I perceive.

Latest news from Trumpland: National security adviser General McMaster calls Trump an ‘idiot’ and a ‘dope’ with the intelligence of a ‘kindergartner’ during a private dinner. He also took a few jabs at Rex Tillerson (despite him making the same kind of comments a few months before), James Mattis, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner.
Naturally, a spokesman for the National Security Council immediately denied that McMaster ever made those comments, despite them being reported by five separate sources.
Isn’t that great to have it confirmed that your Commander-in-Chief lacks the necessary brainpower to understand national security matters?
 
 
buzzfeed again? another dossier on golden showers? More propaganda to feed the haters… National security from the last administration was global warming as islam murdered big bleeding batches of people….yeah.

As much as I hate Trump, I honestly can’t take anyone who calls him a “dictator” or “the next Hitler” seriously. Because almost every US President has been called that by their opponents.
 
Obama, both Bushes, and Clinton all had their opponents claiming that they wanted to be “kings” and all sorts of other crap.

It’s also a case of Crying Wolf. The more you start flipping your lid over every little thing he does the more inured I’m going to be when it comes to criticisms of him.
 
And for someone like Trump that’s a dangerous amount of doubt he does not deserve.

But that’s really the fundamental problem. I’m sure some stuff he does seems little, but all too often those things are hiding bigger, more potentially catastrophic stuff behind it. And all that adds up over time. The little quips against the media that slowly erode public faith in reporting and diminish our ability to obtain or determine the truth. The deflections that muddy the political waters and gradually lower the discourse of our public officials. The lies and accusations and trolling that more sharply divide everyone and make parties more insular. There’s a reason people flip out over his every little deviation from what we expect of a public figure (let alone the president), and to dismiss anything he does based solely on how it appears on the surface level is to miss all the most important reasons why those deviations matter.
 
Many of his ideas are already alarmingly authoritarian, and given that he also has an extremely zealous group of followers and a supportive party that only seems inclined to speak out against him when they no longer have to worry about being re-elected, I’m genuinely concerned people aren’t taking the possibility he’ll attempt to usurp our democracy seriously enough.

I actually think it’s the other way around.
 
People Need him to be a dictator in order to scream “HA! SEE! We told you he was a dictator! We were right!”
 
Just because they just want to be right.
 
Hell, Barack Hassan Obama was more a dictator since a lot of what he did was him going above democracy, yet no one is willing to say that, most because it was things they liked. Not to mention enacted things to give the sitting president more power (Because like many, he thought it was her turn Glad he was wrong) even with that, I’ve yet to see any real tyranny coming from President Trump.

Trump is an idiot for a wide variety of reasons. This is just one more notch on the belt of incompetence.

Funny thing is, a lot of conservative citizens were some of the most vehement backers of NN back in the day on the grounds of free speech, equal access, and anti censorship. But once Trump and his cronies are going to dismantle it, suddenly they fall silent

Excellent point, and I’m gonna tell you one thing, maybe as a non American but who stay in contact with a lot of americans, when Obama was elected, even here we were happy, for the US people to end up with Bush.  
Bush may have been a tyrant, a globalist, a fascist but still democratically elected. Americans have a short memory.
 
result: same wars going on, new terrorist groups, nothing really changed on the international scene and America kept playing the thugs, at the border of war with Russia, playing with fire over the Syrian conflict, accusations of piracy, involvement of US troops in Ukraine.
 
inside the US itself: still poverty, economical crisis, no global healthcare, I remember commissioning some friends on furaffinity who could not afford their meds. life sustaining meds I’m talking.  
still the same amount of cop violence, undertrained thugs with guns, and i find disgusting that as a black man Obama did fucking nothing but come up with the idea “okay let’s give the cops a webcam”
 
Obama did nothing, he was a good actor, a cool guy but the same government remained in place.
 
I’m glad too Cruella lost, and seriously, the poor little Americans who cries “ help! this is a dictatorship! Trump is racist and mysogini-” shut up, you want to see a real dictature? or something close to it? Go visit China, Algeria, or countries where the government actually push a tyrannical regime on colored people, force a religion, and murders people for being gay.  
to these people I have to say shut up. stop whining 101 everytime Trump does a thing, and check your privilege. the privilege to have a president elected.
 
you are not really in position to decide who or who is a dictator, there are different countries, different traditions and cultures. what seems disgusting to us when we look at how people are treated somewhere is normal for others. and usually, they have the same kind of remarks about our lifestyle and politics too, trust me. you don’t go on a street in Baghdad and pray Jesus or wear a MLP shirt. And it’s normal, the “human rights” should not be an international norm.
 
Neither America or Europe are in power to waste effort and act like the pillars of democracy. This self righteousness is what caused terrorism and the state of the world as it is, today. So Mugabe is gone, who do you think will succeed to him? Spoilers: the same kind of guy.
 
For listening to my grandfather explaining who really were the nazis, since 80 years ago they were here, I forbid anyone to really use unironically the term “nazi” or “hitler” to qualify anyone, because it minimizes history facts.

I do wonder why net neutrality is something people keep trying to abolish. Like, I know that there’s a possible profit from it but I doubt that the legislators, politicians, etcs. would benefit from it.
