    I was just thinking, dangerous as that is, that at this stage is this not just some form of bullying? I mean, it seems really OK to publicly humiliate Trump, encouraged almost? Even the related posts link to many other mockeries. Don’t care too much about it, just thinking is all.

      ‘Hey guys, I just came up with an argument that black actually *is* white. Aren’t I smart?’

          I think ‘bullying’ is not really applicable here, “One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict”. It makes the depicted bullies – ?

      All the mockery seems spectacularly toothless in terms of achieving much politically but it does at least provide an outlet for frustration. Trump’s real humiliation is on the political stage, bit he probably consoles himself with nepotism and tax-payer’s money and benefits to his business accruing via the presidency.

      Is it even possible to bully someone that’s yugely more powerful than you are? I feel like there’s a more appropriate term to use there.

        He doesn’t actually think that. Saying ‘Actually guys, you’re all being bullies here, not that I care’ just makes him feel smart for a sec.

          Pretty negative assumptions there Moyest. I’m not thinking I’m smarter than anyone at all (I’ll leave that to you), I’m only asking a reasonable question. Can you tell what I’m thinking now??

          Jeez, you just seem to be attacking me without offering any substance. Got a cartoon for that?

          What I’m trying to get across is that it seems to be OK now to behave like Trump if you are ‘the good guy’. Is that the correct message to be sending out across the world? Admittedly bullying is the wrong word to use here but I’m at a loss at how else to construe it.

            “Jeez, you just seem to be attacking me without offering any substance. Got a cartoon for that?”

            Would you say I’m bullying you?

            “What I’m trying to get across is that it seems to be OK now to behave like Trump if you are ‘the good guy’. Is that the correct message to be sending out across the world?”

            And I’m saying that’s offensive bs.

            boj, I think making an equivalence between, say, Trump mocking a disabled reporter at a rally and a disabled person mocking Trump with a daft meme is to basically suspend personal judgement. If you’re not comfortable mocking Trump yourself then don’t – but I’d be less worried about anti-Trump people mocking him than about them resorting to the kind of fake news stories we’ve being flooded with. There are definitely some ant-Trump fake, or badly inaccurate, stories going around, but not the sheer volume – if that becomes a normalised tactic, then anti-Trump is indeed in danger of becoming more like Trump.

            No, you’re not bullying me, you are just being a doofus by having a go at me rather than expressing an opinion on what I’m saying. How is what I said ‘offensive bs’?

      That’s OK Boj thinking is allowed. I agree sometimes I wonder is there a small child in there being deeply hurt by all the things being said and done.
      But then I remember he’s a narcissistic man pig who if really bothered by it all wouldn’t have gotten this far.
      I don’t think he’s a person in the normal understanding of the word. I don’t know what he is.
      I think the fact that you wonder about the effect on him probably means you’re not a bad person.

      1. Boj

        Thanks Holden! Yes, he definitely is a ‘narcissistic man pig’ (great description btw). It’s not that I wonder about the effect on him, it’s the effect on everyone else? When you start to behave like Trump are you really any better than him, or Kim Jong for that matter…

        Anyway, if these memes can help turn Trump into a delegitimatized, ineffectual, sidelined national joke over here, I’m all for them.

    Hey Boj, no need to put yourself down . I am guessing you are a woman. No man would ever qualify his comment with ” just thinking, dangerous as that is”.
    Just saying :)
