Democrat cognitive dissonance

The Democrat (and corporate media) response to Trump's firing of the FBI Director, James Comey is a casebook case of cognitive dissonance. They wanted Comey fired. They said so, repeatedly, vehemently. Trump fires Comey and they denounce Trump, repeatedly, vehemently. If one did not know this was real, one would think it was a comedy.

 

Maxine Waters went on MSNBC (this had to be a cakewalk, she must have thought). She denounced Trump's firing of Comey and in the next breath asserted that if Hillary Clinton had won the election she would have fired Comey. OK, Waters isn't the smartest cookie. But, she is just more obvious than the rest. Chuck Schumer engaged in the same nonsense, but tried to hide it with much talk of timing. So he is apparently fine with Trump firing Comey, but is seriously concerned by Trump's firing of Comey. You cannot make this stuff up.

 

The Democrat Party leadership are walking, talking caricatures. And the corporate media are no better. Slate magazine has a absurd article on the firing, which purportedly proves some nefarious marlarky. It supposedly does this by demonstrating that there are holes in the White House rationale for the firing. In order to do this, Slate focuses minutely on statements from the administration and finds some discrepancies: they weren't all reading from the same script, there are some variations of detail and emphasis. Thus, they are lying. That's the whole article. Nothing about the substantive issue. This is so funny. If everyone of them had said exactly the same things, Slate would have doubtless used this as proof that they were lying. At this point, the brouhaha is turning into a psychological textbook, adding confirmation bias: only being able to see evidence to prove one's preconceptions.

 

For the Democrats (and their PR team, aka the corporate media) whatever Trump does proves he is mad, bad and dangerous. Even when he does what they want, they jump up and down and shout: "Russia, Russia, Russia!"

    It really is as if they’ve never heard of YouTube or that every word they say ends up there forevermore.

      Trump has twittered them with a tweet that has video of them calling for Comey’s head.

          They hate it. They think it is unfair.

            Amazing they want to hold Trump accountable for something he said off the record a decade ago, but MS Waters can’t be held to statements she’s made in the past 3 months.
            They differ in that she’s black, a woman & a Democrat… I wonder which of these makes her less responsible for her words, words spoken for effect in front of cameras.

    Hello, hello, it is the other way around! Whatever Trump does proves that THEY are mad, bad and dangerous.
    Can you grasp that?
    Most pf US Americans can see it so why can’t you see it that it is THEM that are “mad, bad and dangerous”!?

      Are you trolling? Or is it that you do not understand cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias?

        A better question is do YOU understand it?
        Cognitive dissonance is the least of the demonrats problems. Their main problem is that they are “mad, bad and dangerous” so no wonder they keep on projecting it…

    I think it may be a human defect and pretty widespread at that Steve. Did you know Hitler could not bear cruelty to animals so became vegetarian ?

      Hitler was an insane genius with a serious dependency on a very heavy ever changing cocktail of narcotics.

      How is being opposed to cruelty to animals and being a vegetarian a defect?

        What do you consider a defect? I would have thought his treatment of the Jews , who like us are human animals , may have seemed a little inconsistent. But then one might say any particular of our characteristics are not our fault so we have no defects.
        I’m not a great advocate of consistency having not seen much of it around.

          You have not even addressed the question.

    During the war when he was a dictator he was an addict, but as a young idealist he sang in the church choir and painted pictures of the virgin and child. He was a great admirer of Luther whose butchery and brutality to the Jews was well known. Strange is not that Jesus a devout Jew should eventually sow the seeds of the holocaust? Of course we are told that men must take responsibility for their own actions , then we are made aware of all the influences that shaped them.
