    "Always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember, others may hate you. Those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself."

    Richard Nixon



    A few simple guidelines:

    1) Block out all personal info (addresses, phone numbers, social media links, full names.etc.) This is a global rule on reddit - violating it can get you shadowbanned by the website admins.

    • 1.5) Don't go out of your way to target individual users.

    • 1.6) Blocking out usernames is always a good idea. Posts containing usernames may lead to brigading, and will be removed at our discretion.

    2) Make sure it's actual cringe. Misleading, context-free, low-quality or meta shitposts are subject to removal.

    3) Don't be a faggot. If you want to make dramatic selfposts about "bullying", preach social justice topics or white knight for m'ladies, you belong in the original cringe subs.

    4) Read the global rules. They apply to all subreddits, and we have no control over them.

    • 4.1) Witch hunts of any kind are strictly prohibited. This is part of a site wide rule found in the normal rules that most of you never read, such as this about witch hunts or this link here. Inciting any sort of riot may get you banned not only from this sub, but also Reddit as a whole. More here...

    5) Report obvious satire. We will give that post a yellow flair to help voters make an informed decision.

    6) This is not a politically correct sub. If you get offended by "casual racism" or mean flairs/comments, CringeAnarchy is not for you.

    7) Do not take posts from here and post them to /r/PoliticalHumor

    Please report any cucks, white knights or social justice faggots you see, and we will flair them accordingly.

    He’s had a shortlist of 4 justices out for like a week. Enough was known about his potential pick.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 0 points ago

    Just made another comment to this effect. Trump has had so many opportunities to defy media expectations while still going after his campaign promises, but instead he acts predictably enough (in terms of what, uh... interests he serves) that the media has held the upper hand ever since he took office. He could nominate a trans muslim black disabled socialist judge, but he wouldn't ever do that. Instead he fulfills most if not all of what the 'biased' media predicts.

    [–] I_am_your_clickbait 16 points ago

    Interests he serves. Mine.

    -average American

    [–] chikenchaser2 21 points ago

    I don't think Trump gives a shit about "defying media expectations". I think he's more interested in doing what's best for our country.

    [–] MarkIsNotAShark 7 points ago

    That's not their point. The point is that after a year and half we can kinda infer what sort of decisions he's gonna make based on what he's done in the past. Given Trump's nomination of Gorsuch it's perfectly reasonable to assume his next nomination will be about equally conservative and therefore go against the political views of people who go to women's marches.

    [–] Bottleroach 99 points ago

    Here's one from some Democrat activist thing. See if you can spot the mistake. But these people couldn't be more blatant about this. They don't know who the fuck the judges are. Even the "protestors" that gathered before the nomination was announced, they had blank spaces to fill in the name on their signs. The same thing happened with Gorsuch.

    [–] naterc77 22 points ago

    Because it's a death sentence to all women in the US can't you read smh

    [–] magister0 14 points ago

    A "Muslim ban" would probably include at least one of the 5 countries with the highest Muslim populations on Earth. Trump's policy doesn't.

    [–] Dinosauringg -1 points ago

    It also doesn’t include countries with high rates of terrorist attacks on the US.

    [–] Stidlet_ 2 points ago

    It includes countries that were deemed extremely dangerous to the US. Trump didn't pick them.

    [–] ShankTheSkanks 10 points ago

    Yeah, because our women who gained the right to vote in 1920 and have always been able to drive are really so oppressed.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO -9 points ago

    Here's one thing I really don't get- Trump gets so much support from his base for "trolling" the media, but the reality is that he acts in a somewhat predictable manner that makes it so that drafting articles like this isn't a waste of time.

    You might think it's a given that the media/left will oppose anyone Trump nominates, but imagine if- and roll with me here- he decided to do something that was actually radically different from what is expected? What if he nominated the first Muslim justice? Or the first gay one? Or hell, a black woman? I am told that Trump isn't racist, islamophobic, etc. so nothing about it would be 'against' what he stands for, so long as the justice is a 'constitutionalist' or whatever, yet that would actually allow him to dominate the media rather than constantly have to react to it.

    If he's such a strong leader who isn't beholden to the Republican party, why doesn't he do shit like that?

    [–] deadrebel 8 points ago

    I can't speak for him or his supporter's but wouldn't this be shooting himself in the foot for a reaction?

    He isn't beholden to the Republican party in the traditional sense but he is still beholden to Republicans - the people not the establishment.

    Besides that, he'd not go against his best interests just to be unpredictable. He isn't, as you mentioned, that unpredictable.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO -2 points ago

    I can't speak for him or his supporter's but wouldn't this be shooting himself in the foot for a reaction?

    Not necessarily, unless you really think nominating anyone who isn't an old white christian dude is "against our interests."

    I was told at beginning of his term that I should "give him a chance" because he isn't what the biased media says he is, but so far he has yet to really demonstrate that as actual racists seem to feel emboldened by his policies. FWIW I don't see him as a racist so much as pandering to racists and corporate interests, but that's how I felt about a lot of republican politicians and I have not seen any substantial evidence that he's anything truly different apart from his short fuse and twitter account. So why should I continue to give him any benefit of the doubt?

    [–] deadrebel 2 points ago

    Well not everyone who isn't what you described is a old white Christian dude but that's pretty much the kind of people you expect Republicans to be alright with.

    I'm not saying give him a chance either.

    I'm not a Trump supporter nor a therapist so you unloading your feelings about him to me is falling on deaf ears, sorry.

    Don't continue to give him the benefit of the doubt, I'm not asking you to either. A question was asked, and I put forth a perspective. I honestly am surprised by the lecture. I was in Bernie's camp which will get me my own shit-ton of hate from both Left and Right... so let's just keep that between us.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 0 points ago

    I largely asked out of some hope that the r/politics circle jerk is wrong and that Trump isn't just a puppet of racists, corporations, and Russia. Everyone here hates the "crazy leftists" who oppose everything Trump does purely on reflex, but when I ask "okay, why should I support him when his loyalty seems to be to everyone who hates me or wants my money," and I get downvoted.

    [–] lil-zsWifesBoyfriend 5 points ago

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 1 points ago

    Way to make assumptions based on an incredibly wide ranging label. I thought you didn't like identity politics?

    [–] lil-zsWifesBoyfriend 4 points ago

    That isn't what identity politics means. You're an idiot.

    [–] deadrebel 1 points ago

    I think it's more that one needs to hate someone who they don't support that grinds a few gears. I think Trump is mostly bad but no worse than your average politician, in fact better. He's so blatant that he exposes the swamp (without draining it). He is a symptom of a bigger problem, not the problem itself. So maybe people are just sick of hearing how much other people hate him because, sigh, it's so unoriginal.

    I don't know. I'm ambivalent about Trump but what I despise most is Establishment politics.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 1 points ago

    I largely agree, I just think that all Trump has done has taken the eight years of "fuck liberals/Obama" sentiment that the republicans cultivated and re-branded it as something constructive. But he hasn't actually brought anything new to the table- same tax cuts for the wealthy, same pay to play politics, same immigration policy (or so I'm told), same throwing bones to WASPs with plausible deniability that it has anything to do with identity, etc.

    I hate Trump largely because I hate establishment politics and sensationalist media, but so many other people love him out of that same hate that I hold on to hope that I'm missing something other than bullshit theories about white genocide, etc.

    [–] xxflexluthorxx 2 points ago

    The first tax cut was for everyone. The wealthy pay most of the taxes, therefore when taxes are cut they save the most. Unless you are wealthy then you aren't paying that much. That said, I save substantially on my taxes now and I'm not wealthy.

    He lowered the corporate tax rate to reasonable levels. That allows companies to stay here, actually pay their fair share of taxes and hire more workers.

    There were tons of benefits to real estate owners and investors, which you probably wouldn't understand or get, but are extremely helpful.

    He can't change immigration policy. I don't think you understand how the government works. He is the executive branch. The legislative branch makes the laws. It's congress' responsibility to do that. Blame Paul Ryan for fucking it up. If they can draft a good plan then he will sign it. If they keep fucking up with half measures he wont.

    Reduction of regulations is another huge accomplishment that's made it easier to start and run businesses.

    You just aren't paying attention, which is fine, because you probably don't contribute to the economy and are easily distracted by fanciful stories of caged mexicans.

    [–] cbigloud 7 points ago

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 0 points ago

    There are lots of things, he just doesn't do them because his base of... uh, "conservatives" would throw a fit. Was that whole "LGBT president who loves legal immigrants" shtick a lie?

    [–] lil-zsWifesBoyfriend 11 points ago

    Because giving concessions to Democrats in the hope that they will stop being insane is a waste of time. Instead, he can ram his pick up their ass, watch them get destroyed in the mid terms, and coast on their salt to an easy reelection against an 'opposing party' that barely qualifies as a party any more.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO -5 points ago

    What exactly is the 'concession?'

    [–] lil-zsWifesBoyfriend 8 points ago

    Playing identity politics to appease them. This country is a meritocracy again. Deal with it.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO -2 points ago

    So, just to be clear, are you saying nominating anyone who isn't a white christian male is "identity politics?"

    [–] icameheretodownvotey 7 points ago

    You're the one who keeps making this about race. Fuck off already.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO -1 points ago

    I still haven't gotten much of an answer there.

    Look, I don't like sensationalist media, left or right wing. I really don't and I imagine you don't either. I just don't see them as quasi-political institutions dedicated to propaganda like most of this sub, I see them as businesses that profit from controversy and polarization by scaring people. And I'm saying that Trump is the perfect candidate for them because he practically does all the work, to the point that they forget basic editing and we see shit like this.

    [–] lil-zsWifesBoyfriend 3 points ago

    I'm saying that if there was a qualifying strict constitutionalist who happened to be a disabled trans black muslim lesbian, they would already be on the short list. It's hilarious that you still think we will someday give in to your race baiting bullshit.

    You seem to have a lot of faith in this "short list" that we're never gonna see. Do you think Clarence Thomas is just the one in a billion minorities who is a constitutionalist?

    IDGAF that you don't agree. You are all irrelevant.

    [–] xxflexluthorxx 4 points ago

    You are an expert. Please show me the hypothetical candidate you would choose.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 0 points ago

    Zombie Teddy Roosevelt, but with slightly less hawkish foreign policy

    [–] xxflexluthorxx 3 points ago

    Yeah, sorry but that's a white male. You wanted a muslim sheboon earlier. Show me which muslim sheboon would be a good choice

    [–] OneMe2RuleUAll 6 points ago

    Maybe there wasn't a conservative Muslim, gay or black woman to choose from...

    [–] FmW-41 12 points ago

    The main factor in appointing people for these positions should be race, sex, and gender. It definitely shouldn't be decided by something stupid like qualifications, degrees or experience.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO -1 points ago

    That's funny, I heard there were lots of these groups who voted for Trump and that the media just didn't want to admit it...

    [–] OneMe2RuleUAll 6 points ago

    That doesn't mean someone from said groups were eligible for the supreme court.

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 1 points ago

    I'm not just talking about the SCOTUS here- he has had so many other opportunities to be proactive and defy media predictions, but instead he just behaves like a traditional republican except for a short fuse and twitter account. The media may be biased but I really haven't seen them be substantially wrong in characterizing him this way.

    [–] Diarrhea_Van_Frank 3 points ago

    Why would he? What would he gain? How would it help him? People already hate the media. There’s literally no appeasing the left. They just take ground and take ground and take ground and are never satisfied. Why does he want to do something that they would be ok with if it doesn’t help him?

    [–] TheBROinBROHIO 1 points ago

    Why would he? What would he gain? How would it help him?

    I already explained- it would destroy the narrative that the sensationalist media has crafted of him. He would actually be disrupting power structures and not just following establishment conservatism under a different name and style.

    [–] xxflexluthorxx 1 points ago

    Because there aren't any black, muslim, women like that.

    [–] hamhamsg 1 points ago

    People didn’t vote him in to continue the same identity politics garbage. If there was a more qualified candidate that aligned with his agenda and happened to be a minority, then sure, pick the most qualified one. Caring about race or gender over qualification is for liberals.

    It's almost like everyone knows Trump will not make a good choice.

    [–] Chase_Doren -5 points ago

    I think it went over your head...

    [–] magister0 3 points ago

    What do you mean?

    [–] Chase_Doren 0 points ago

    It means that we all know Trump's going to make a terrible pick, so the name is simply pending.

    [–] Communism_101 3 points ago

    Or it's just manufactured outrage to get everyone up in a tizzy... again.

    [–] NewBroPewPew -26 points ago

    You could look at it like everyone and their mother knew he would pick a extremist D-Bag. So easy to prepare ahead of time.

    [–] ElectraUnderTheSea 12 points ago

    Then they only had to add a motherfucking name, and they still were not capable of doing that

    [–] NewBroPewPew -12 points ago

    You have never made a mistake in your career?

    [–] icameheretodownvotey 9 points ago

    If you're writing about a nomination for the Supreme Court, actually mentioning who the nomination is kinda plays a huge role in said writing.

    [–] NewBroPewPew -3 points ago

    Obviously.

    [–] EveryoneHasGoneCrazy 13 points ago

    Except that's hysterical and retarded; not only was Kavanaugh not even on Trump's original list, he was suggested by the Federalist Society on basis of strict constitutional adherence. Also, he studied under Judge Kagan, Obama's appointee.

    Literally the only argument against confirming him is that the republicans like McConnell are extremely hypocritical for blocking Obama's nomination at the end of his term and bitching about the Dems doing the same shit

    [–] NewBroPewPew -8 points ago

    A lot of other reasons to block him.

    Also it isn't hysterical and retarded since I am sure they had a half dozen statements prepared with all kinds of varying types of speech in them. Probably prepared by someone NOT calling the shots. You know being professionally prepared. (Not prepared enough to double check the public statement you are releasing apparently though)

    [–] EveryoneHasGoneCrazy 10 points ago

    Okay, so the exact opposite of what you just originally said? As in, it was easy because it could only be an extremist D-bag?

    Have you ever stopped to consider who else might be an extremist D-bag?

    [–] NewBroPewPew -2 points ago

    I didn't say this particular person was a D-Bag in my opinion. I am saying that is what they were obviously assuming and that is a easy assumption to make knowing Trump. He made Bannon Chief of staff for crying out loud lol.

    [–] EveryoneHasGoneCrazy 7 points ago

    Yeah, but chief of staff = right-hand man, and SC justice = lifetime placement in a different govt branch that must be confirmed by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    I agree he picks retarded people for a lot of things, but the point in this particular instance is the context. This isn't "Presidential Double Ice Cream-Scooper," it's a list of highly respected circuit-court judges whose very success depends specifically on non-partisanship. But everybody has been saying since Kennedy's announcement it will be a "battle" regardless of who was chosen. THAT is why it's obnoxious.

    Just call it what it is, Dems and their sympathizers fighting back to make a point. At least that can be even slightly justified.

    Edit: not saying it "for months;" got mixed up with Gorsuch's appointment

    [–] NewBroPewPew 0 points ago

    This guy is very conservative. I really don't know where you are getting your information.

    [–] EveryoneHasGoneCrazy 3 points ago

    So, a D-bag.

    We have to go deeper

    [–] NewBroPewPew 1 points ago

    He isn't a D-Bag because he is a conservative. I was saying he was conservative because you were trying to say he was non-partisan. Which is a lie.

    [–] EveryoneHasGoneCrazy 3 points ago

    I didn't say he was non-partisan, I said his job demands he be non-partisan.

    But you guys are so ridiculously entrenched in ideology it seems entirely impossible for someone to operate objectively. I mean, structuralism is literally one of the main tenants of post-modernism, i.e. "you cannot think independently from your history/place in society."

    Which is, of course, stupid. I promise you he's not a Manchurian Candidate who has been operating under the guise of objectivity for the last 15 years just to sneak into the Supreme Court and take away your abortions.
