2018: The year of dog whistle politics

There are 45 comments on the Washington Post story from Nov 14, 2018, titled 2018: The year of dog whistle politics. In it, Washington Post reports that:

Dog whistles are not new in U.S. politics, but as identity has become the increasingly predominant way by which people label themselves politically, appealing to divisions by using them has become more common. The term is an expression for a message that may sound innocuous to the general population but is intended to be interpreted favorably by a specific group of people.

Virtually all dog whistles are tuned to a far-right frequency, quite often racial in nature.

Seems like the year of hating white men and women by the fake news media such as the Washington Post.

Just saw horse-face's creepy porn lawyer was arrested for felony assault on a woman. Chuck Schumer must be pissed this fool ruined his Christine Ford lie before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

EXACTALY.......
Why can't the lame-o-stream news media get it right and start hating all them bad brown people coming here illegally????
There's no collusion
There's no cronyisms
There's no incompetence
There's no 327 rounds of golf here.
There is no abuses of power here
There is nothing to see here......casteth your eyes southward to see the 7,000 brown scapegoats that are headed here to sell drugs to your children and rape your wife before murdering you.
And they think they can just cross the border illegally

"Just saw horse-face's creepy porn lawyer...."

If that characterization of Stormy Daniels were true it would say a great deal about Ill Duce Trump's taste in sex partners. And Ill Duce Trump himself said it...so it must, by his own admission.

Also, Ill Duce Trump's and your comment means it's open season on the quite scary physical attributes of Kelly Ann Conway and Sarah Hawgafeedbin.

No one the right may whine about it, either, since Ill Duce Trump serially runs around calling women horse faced; dogs; fat pigs; fat, ugly faced; fat slobs; Miss Piggy; Miss Eating Machine....

If Hawgabee had any self respect she'd find a new boss instead of crying about "the left's 'war on women,'" a comment which in the context of her present employment suggests she has a serious brain disease.

White people like you SHOULD be hated. Idiots who repeat the phrase "Fake news media" (sorry - FAKE NEWS MEDIA!) are as brainless as their Orange Overlord der Drumpfenmeister.

Obvious setup by Trump's people, but even if it weren't, it's evidence of your gross hypocrisy. An assault on a woman by a Democrat or liberal would be the ONLY kind you'd object to.

Ugly women deserve to be groped right along with pretty women. That is why God invented the paper sack.

Well then perhaps you could explain the "Pressure" from the Mueller probe that is referenced in this headline? From what I have heard, the Mueller probe has found no wrongdoing on the part of the President. What is the source of this "pressure"? It is more fake news designed to imply that President Trump is hiding something and Mueller is on the verge of proving it. Fake news.

Yes. A setup. That's what must have happened?

We need to return to the day when men were men, and women liked them that way. These sissy men they are turning out today leave much to be desired. When the women are openly tougher then the men, you have a problem. Thank God the men in my family are gun toting, fighting men. Don't mess with any of them. Not a Democrat in the crowd.

I never doubted you are an indiscriminate sexual abuser.

The point was that Ill Duce Trump keeps describing a woman he hooked up as "horse faced." What does that say about his taste in women, or about how he views women, or in his judgement about women who will consort with him.

To be clear I would not describe Stormy Daniels' looks in an unflattering.(Her politics are gross - a Palin fan.) I think there are many, many ugly things about Sarah Huckabee, inside and out...but I didn't sleep with her before or after delivering my unflattering opinion of her.

Except you haven't kept your lies straight again, dunce. You've posted how you're supposedly not opposed to marriage equality and how you supposedly have neighbors who are a gay couple whom you like.

I guess your gay neighbors are really butch, huh?

It is not the men at fault. Women throughout the world have forgotten what it means to be responsible and graceful. They are divorcing their man and raising their boys to be effeminate. There is nothing more disturbing than a Graceless woman pretending to be the voice of all women.

He doesn't drink so I have to assume he had a stroke or something before sleeping with horse face. He ended up with Melania so I guess he healed pretty quick. Obama on the other hand landed a chick whose face was used for the mold for Barnum Circus Gorilla animal crackers.

Now you're saying Ill Duce Trump is impaired in some way, and that that explains how he implicitly mocks his own taste in women by criticizing the looks of women he's hooked up with.

You're fricken correct for once, if inadvertently.
