  •  The "Our Leader" trope is (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    insulting to those who actually endure/d under "our leader" dictatorships and to those who support any of the President's policies. Our Leader, Dear Leader, Authoritarians, Stasis, butthurt, etc. is out of control name-calling and I'm HRing it for that reason.

    •  North Koreans are (3+ / 0-)

      Outraged, outraged by the dear leader trope, I tell ya!

        those who live under actual dictatorships (which is not just North Korea). I'm tired of it: of the "disappearing" language, the "Dear Leader" language, of the "Stasi" language -- taking away the true power of words to describe AND inspire by using them in this childish, name-calling way.

        •  I know, it's just (4+ / 0-)

          scandalous!  The real problem is people using dictatorship analogies, not things like the NSA or Summers or Clapper or Arne Duncan or Geithner, etc.  Man, DK has sunk so low.  I mean, imagine these things being their priority rather than dictatorship analogies.  The horror, the horror!

          •  It's not up to you (0+ / 0-)

            to decide what I comment about. I am able to hold more than one thought in my head at one time and can be disgusted by the out of control analogies AND the Patriot Act, attacks on reproductive rights, attacks on science and climate science, attacks on the poor and working poor, racism, sexism, xenophobia etc. I don't need you to tell me what "the real problem" is, thank you.
