Poll: New Hampshire Democrats would prefer an
extinction-causing meteor over Trump reelection

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 2/8/2020 2:34:58 PM

A majority of New Hampshire Democrats said in a new poll that they would rather a "giant meteor strikes the Earth, extinguishing all human life" than see President Trump reelected. The University of Massachusetts Lowell survey of 400 Democratic voters asked which candidates they would support in the state's primary Tuesday, with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tying for first place at 23 percent support. But voters were also asked in the online survey conducted by YouGov: "Which of the following outcomes would you prefer occur on November 3, 2020? Donald Trump wins re-election or

Comments:

No this is not The Onion. Democrats would actually choose massive human loss of life.

OP, democrats march in the streets every year to celebrate over 50 million deaths they have been the direct cause of. This comes as no surprise. Democrats are like 14 year old girls who contemplate suicide because someone stood them up at the mall.

That’s because most Democrats are not from this earth and are the result of some weird extraterrestrial alien genetics experiment that went amuck and they had to put the residue on planet Earth.

This is what fascist look like folks - mass extermination of life if totally acceptable if it means their power is at stake - President Trump is a clear and present danger to the framework that the socialists have set up, so he and his followers need to be eliminated... this is called Stalin, Lenin, Maduro... fascist kill for power. America, you better be awake this election...

Oh, how much better our country would be if the media that feeds these respondents the hatred for POTUS actually behaved the way it was designed to....to be fair, balanced, unbiased and down the center. One has to think that these media types really don't care about the state of our county in the future because they have no children or grandchildren to protect. Or perhaps if they do, they think they have enough money to insulate their descendants from the wrath that socialism will bring us. They really should do a little research, though. With a government that controls all, the press is the first to fall.

After Trump's November 2020 victory these respondents, or any other like minded individuals, could locate a tall building and then perform their best imitation of a rapidly descending meteor. It would provide them with a desired result and leave the rest of us to continue to MAGA. I'm being satirical, but what emotional/psychological disorder motivates such an extreme response....TDS?

Maybe AOC and the Commiecrats can organize a Heaven's Gate II and have their souls catch up to the Haley-Bopp comet. That could also release their fears of disaster looming ahead from climate change.

As if you needed even more proof that many Democrats are truly Sick-Beyond-Belief. That sickness was overtly demonstrated by Schiffty-Schiff, Waddling Nadler, and Pelosi-the-Prayer. The Demo-Communists here value actual human life about the same way that the Chinese Communists do ... any doubt here is dispelled by the Democrats' abortion obsession.

The democrats have lost their collective minds. Many years ago Superman Comics had a character called Bizzaro Superman. In his world everything was backwards. Now we have Bizzaro democrats. In their world everything is racist, money is bad, climate change is the end, Trump is the antichrist. And by the way, the Bizzaro democrats have told us the earth has only 12 more years to go. So in that case we won't need an asteroid to do the dirty deed. In 12 years it's over. Then we'll become like the Bizzaro democrats. Where everything will be bum backwards.

Sweet Meteor of Death? (SMOD) Reading that, Holden Caulfield's words come back: "It killed me." Yes, Holden and I are laughing, but the would be storm troopers on the Left are as serious as mortality ... mortality for us all because we deserve it for reelecting Bad Orange Man. These New Hampshire Democrats need to remember what 20th Century poet Eliot's first two initials were. We didn't like (the Iranian mullahs' anti-American friend) Obama just as much as they don't like Trump, but we didn't make a scene about it. People with class endure hardship with a smile. They don't wish for all life on earth to end because they didn't get their way. They're welcome to make themselves extinct, if that's what they want. They rest of us will defend ourselves from these bugged eyed end of the worlders.

The tragic result of illuminati engaging in hyperbolic one-upsmanshp, to see who can outdo everybody else in NeverTrumpism. "I'd rather contract the coronavirus." "I'd rather take sharp sticks in the eyes." "I'd rather have my mother-in-law move in with us." "I'd rather lose everything I own." "I'd rather every person on earth be killed." I suppose somebody might suggest a preference for every atom in the universe to lose its cohesiveness (and all matter cease to exist). But the extinction meteor pretty much ends the game...

HAMPTON, N.H. — It was two days before the New Hampshire primary, and Joe Biden was talking about 13th century common law. The point Biden was making is that he wrote legislation in the U.S. Senate to protect women from domestic abuse, the Violence Against Women Act. But it was hard to make out the connection between Biden’s detour into the Middle Ages with his argument that domestic violence is a modern sign of cultural decay. “We have to change the culture,” he told an audience of a few hundred people inside a hotel ballroom in this seaside town. “You

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night. But in promising to tell the truth, he accidentally exposed his own doleful (or I should say, Bob Dole-ful) prospects in Tuesday’s opening-gun primary. In his first words of the debate—the moment when candidates are usually the most scripted—Biden confessed, “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.” It was a novel campaign strategy; few candidates ever say, “Vote for me because I’m going to lose here.” If his comments were a brief misstep in an otherwise smooth debate, it would have been one thing.

I see that various pundits are competing to write the political epitaph for Joe ‘son-of-a-bitch‘ Biden. That’s entirely understandable.

Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.
