Roy, have you ever thought about renaming the Celticsblog forum as Occupy Democrats/Daily KOS/The Huffington Post 2.0?
I mean, seriously, the amount of partisan hypocrisy that has been displayed on this blog in the last year or so is just disgusting, and it goes both ways, too. The amount of discussion on here about the scandals and corruption surrounding Trump and his team vastly overshadows the very minimal discussion about the scandals and corruption surrounding Obama, Hillary, or anything on the left side of the political spectrum, and even when these things do get brought up, it's usually from Conservative or Libertarian-types with most of the discussion being rationalizations and equivocations trying to justify or downplay the issue.
Where was all the outrage on here over some of the leftist scandals and corruption the last few years, such as the Fast and Furious scandal, the DNC corruption, VA Health Administration Scandal, IRS Scandal, the Iranian Hostage Ransom Scandal, GSA Scandal, Holder/New Black Panther Party Scandal, Obama's executive overreach, etc.? Funny that on a leftist blog for a New England sports team that these issues are much less discussed in favor of Republican scandals, and, like I said, it works the other way, too. Way too many people in middle America rationalize Trump's issues while focusing on the failures or issues of Obama, Hillary, Bernie, etc.
Don't try to act like you care about corruption now when you were reticent the last 8 years with Democratic/leftist corruption. Don't try to act like you care about executive overreach now when you were reticent the last 8 years about Obama's executive overreach. Don't try to act like you care about honesty and integrity now when you were reticent the last 8 years with Democratic/leftist lack of honesty and integrity.
And I know most of you do care about these things personally and aren't the blind partisans that many Americans are. But the fact of the matter is that on here you're much more vocal and passionate about these issues now than you were the last 8 years when it came from a leftist administration, which is completely unjust, illogical, and hypocritical. It is this type of attitude that has caused such major political divides in America.
This blog (at least the current events section) would be so much better with much more political parity instead of the dominance of liberal posters that has largely made this place a Trump-hating echo chamber in recent months. There'd be a lot more useful, interesting political dialogue than the constant snarky back-patting and group-affirmation that characterizes much of the dialogue recently. It's becoming more and more apparent to me why people voluntarily ban themselves from the current event sections here.
And I know there's going to be rationalizing posts in response to this suggesting a false equivalency, that Trump is much worse than Obama, and/or arguing that the scandals/issues are different or not really scandals/issues at all, because of course there will be. But that just further proves the central thesis that I'm arguing here.
