No one will date right-wingers in DC and I am so here for it

No church bells for these two

By David Futrelle

The most heartening thing in the news today — I mean, aside from ex-Trumper Sam Nunberg’s live TV meltdown — is this story by Mimi Montgomery in Washingtonian magazine about the sad plight of right wingers in D.C., none of whom are apparently able to find anyone who wants to get into their pants.

Yep. In these politically fraught times, it seems no sensible person wants to have anything to do (in bed or out) with those who like, much less work for, that orange thing in the White House.

In a city as overwhelmingly Democratic as DC, the combination of lingering anger over Hillary Clinton‘s loss and President Trump‘s existence makes it tricky for conservatives to date across party lines.

“A lot of times you’ll connect with someone [on an app] and they’ll Google you, find out you worked for Trump’s campaign, and then it’s pretty much all downhill from there,” says a Trump Administration official.

Aww. Let me play you a little song:

But actual White House staffers aren’t the only ones suffering:

People who work in right-wing media say they don’t have it any better.

“The political divide has gotten so wide that a lot of younger liberals don’t have any interest in meeting conservatives,” says a reporter at a conservative media company. Working for a right-wing publication is such an obstacle to dating in DC, he doesn’t put his employer on any dating apps and avoids talking about it until meeting someone face-to-face, he says.

Maybe this will cheer you up a little bit:

No matter how hard they may try to hide their perverse political proclivities, there are always clues. One self-described “moderate conservative” tells Washingtonian that he

once brought a woman back to his place, and while checking out his bookshelf, she noticed some books by conservative thinkers, he says. “She was like, ‘Oh no. First question: Did you vote for Trump?’,” the reporter says. He told her no, but that he was conservative. “She was like ‘I have to get out of here. I can’t see you,’ and left.”

Let’s listen to the song that’s already playing in your head:

While conservatives complain that all the liberal hotties lump Trump true-believers in with “principled” conservatives, one progressive woman assured the Washingtonian she’s perfectly capable of distinguishing between dudes who want “lower marginal tax rates” and those who believe no “woman should have a right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.”

Generally, it’s not that hard to tell.

Most of the self-identifying progressives I talked with said they could tell how far right a man or woman leaned based on their dating-app photos—”Make America Great Again” hats are an obvious tell, but some also listed photos of US flag paraphernalia, hunting gear, or fratty beach parties as turn-offs.

But sometimes stealth conservatives can slip past liberal filters.

When she first moved to DC, a former Obama White House staffer who now works at the Aspen Institute was set up on a date with a Republican who worked on Capitol Hill. “We had a really nice time, but at the end of the date, he told me he didn’t believe in global warming,” she says. “I started laughing, because I’m from Colorado and didn’t realize people actually didn’t believe in global warming. But he was serious.”

They didn’t go out again.

Evidently, it’s those on the left who are doing most of the rejecting.

Republicans say it’s liberals who are more likely to turn down someone across the aisle. “Democrats are usually more vocal” about their opposition, the Trump staffer says, and therefore quicker to demonize all conservatives.

“I feel like they look at me and are like, here’s a tall white dude with brown hair wearing loafers, and he probably has a picture of Reagan and the NRA in his bedroom or something,” says one of the reporters from the conservative media company. “I just think they have a very hyperbolic view of what a conservative is.”

Yeah, I don’t think that’s it. I think the problem is that you are all fucking terrible. (And probably terrible at fucking to boot.)

What is moderate and what is populist these days though.

So from that last bit with the dates I take it you expect the world to end soon. I’d say it is probable it won’t. Not something I’d base my life choices around.

not to virtue-signal

…which is exactly the sort of term that a true “moderate moderate” would use, after all.

honestly political differences is very good reason not to date someone. especially when these differences will hurt people you know, ruin your country and fuck up your life. I could not date someone so careless like that. I could not love them. they are made of arrogance and selfishness. they have no sympathy or compassion – if they don’t care about that others will suffer, they can really love you?

OMG he did more interviews! This guy is a train wreck. JDSM what do you think about nunburg? Even a modern moderate hedonist should have an opinion about this right?

Ah, Amigara Fault, that you would know such a relatively obscure reference warms my heart hehehe

And as for Nunberg (coincidentally sounds like ‘Nuremberg’ but there are no coincidences, are there? That’s gotta mean something) , well, this is such a stinking-fishy administration and fish are caught by their own mouths, since evil in the end destroys itself just as the mythical Oroborous devours it’s own tail tsk tsk tsk

PS the combination of that term “chew toy” and the appearance of your own avatar (hawt Victorian) it’s inducing an effect on me… ah-ahem…eh-excuse me… I do believe I heh-have to go-oh somewhere fast …

Coincidences are common and happen everyday. Another obvious truth. Disagree?

But we agree about the stinky fish!

Now go have your wank.

coincidence mainly happens inside your imaginations. humans look for patterns, often they see patterns when there is not any. it is not coincidence that Nunburg and Nuremberg are similar words. there at many words that are similar. it means nothing.

So you’re admitting that your troll name on a site known for kicking around trolls sounds like “BDSM” on purpose?

Actually those are the initials of my very own birth-name, but as fate would have it, shades of “My Name is Rumpelstiltskin”, it is also happens to almost be the same acronym as that primal carnal obsession/compulsion which has Bedeviled my life since I watched Star Wars Episode 6 when it first came out (Oola and Leia etcetera) hehehe the Gods must have a sense of humor indeed…You may consider me a troll, but my birthname, at least my first name, the first half, of my screenname is rather noble, even divine, based on their meaning…

BTW I a.m a believer in whatever hehehe

The meaning of this coincidence is that both names are etymologically related. Boring. Try harder.

So what does the J stand for? Personally I had the hots for a few star trek aliens, nothing like a weirdly crested forehead…

Ah, I prefer to believe otherwise; ever heard of Quantum Entanglement?

And online forums are ideally supposed to be like offline orgies , if you’ve ever been to one, I.e. No (Real) Names! But to indulge you, I Will say that it has something to with the concept of God …

What is moderate and what is populist these days though.

Moderate: Fascist sympathiser
Populist: Fascist.

@EJ(TOO)

…which is exactly the sort of term that a true “moderate moderate” would use, after all.

Fascists are laughably bad at pretending they’re not fascists.

@JDSM

I’ve been to a lot more than one, old bean, and we all used our regular names. Hell, that’s where I met my ex-wife. And my current spouse, come to that.

Cute, but no, its not. What Parent would be so cruel eh?

And moderates sympathize with everybody,even with RadFems. We just don’t join anyone’s extremist clubs, whether right or left. You could also call us “centrist” too. Or do you seriously believe that the far-left is or should be the new normal eh?

Ah, a bit too much of an overreaction eh?

And obviously I mean casual leisure forums , not the serious business (in its general sense) forums.
