How can liberals be so "open-minded" and "non-bigoted" but call Trump and his supporters every name in the book?

I'm not going to get into politics, my positions, or even be biased. (The best I can.)
I see all the time that liberals are for "equality and rights for everyone." Now how is that so? I go to ANY form of liberal media and read through the comments. Most of them reiterate what Hillary has already said, or come up with any "insult" that's not much of an insult. For example: "drumpf and his supporters are nasty racist bigots. Lack respect for everything and anyone, those deplorables. They can't stand anyone except themselves, horrible bully's they are. I hate people like them so much, I can't wait until Hillary kicks his white trash to the curb once she wins." Like really? How is that not being a bigot or even anything that they're saying? They're literally calling a good portion of Americans horrible words because they don't like the other opinions.

I head over to the comment section of the conservative media and it's usually much less rude. You have people (for the most part) hoping Trump wins and other than that are calling Hillary a horrible person. They don't go into paragraphs trying to insult a large portion of their fellow Americans. They are also the ones called bigots, racists, etc. It's pretty sad to see.

Do you guys feel the same way? What are your opinions?

  • There are a couple things:
    - calling ideas horrible is not the same as calling people names.
    - I would agree the left has overused accusations of racism etc. There was an interesting recent article suggesting that after years of democrats squawking that people like Bush or Romney were racist, their accusations are now falling on deaf ears, while trump is... well some days i'm not sure he's actually racist, but he is, without question, pandering directly to xenophobic white nationalists to a much higher degree.
    - finally, i'm vaguely horrified by the extent to which some left leaning sites mock trump's appearance. Yeah, he's an overweight guy with odd hair. There is a -great- deal of hypocrisy in terms of how some people attack him for that.

      Donald Trump To Supporters "You People Were Violent Vicious Screaming Mean Nasty" At FL Rally

      Published on 17 Dec 2016

      President-elect Donald Trump said Friday his supporters were "violent" during the 2016 campaign. Trump made the admission Friday night during a rally here on the Florida leg of his "Thank You" tour. During the campaign, he repeatedly downplayed violent outbursts his supporters displayed at times toward protesters and insisted that paid activists were instead responsible for inciting violence at his rallies.

  • My biggest issue with Trump isn't really his positions on the issues, it's his constant boldfaced lying. In the second debate, he may have lied, but a lot of it was *opinion* so he told fewer lies, but in the first debate he literally lied almost the entire time.

    Not only does he lie, but he frequently lies about things where he has been videotaped saying the EXACT opposite. His reaction? He just doubles down on his lies, using the Hitlerian rule that if you lie fast enough and loud enough and often enough, most people will believe you.

    • So you supported Hillary Clinton, a lifelong pathological liar?

    • @MajorKrell
      As I said above, is he a liar, yes. Not only does he lie, but he frequently lies about things where he has been videotaped saying the EXACT opposite. Is Hilary a liar too? Definitely. But she does not have the shear effrontery to lie after being caught as it as he does.

    • No. She doesn't. Which is the more dangerous? A liar who doubles down on their lie, or one who, however much a liar, will admit it when pressed?

  • i despise trump as a presidential candidate but i haven't said one ugly word as you mentioned above. try to stay above that kind of behavior

  • I totally understand where you are coming from - I have being disappointed at the tone of the interaction - I have got to the point where I go agree to disagree but I don't support your candidate if the tone is cordial - I usually respond to loaded questions even ones for Clinton and give a snarky response.

  • You're right though. When I saw that story earlier this week about his off-air comments , I realised that a lot of people are jumping on a Trump-hating bandwagon and I had become one of them. I definitely not a supporter, but at the same time I can now see the hypocrisy and bigotry of calling Trump supporters closed-minded etc when I jumped on the bandwagon solely because he said he would build a wall to keep Muslims out (I saw that as a racial attack when it clearly isn't)
