Exactly. WTF does “virtue signaling” even mean you freakin’ trumpkins? Is it like the Batman signal? He was kinda virtuous, right?

It’s in the same vein of Trump and the Republicans doing exactly everything they accused Hillary of doing.  

They inoculate themselves from accountability by altering the perception of their political opposition with false accusations.

it is intended to denigrate or undermine the message of whatever someone is saying by taking the focus off their message and instead claim that they are only making the statement to demonstrate their own superiority of morality or to rouse.  effectively, just saying something to get pos rep.

ironically, i believe it could be most appropriately applied to lots of folks (including self-righteous leftists) but most apropos for people like the southern televangelist caricature.  guys like osteen, etc...

Oh, so pure bullshit.  Got it.

no, there is an appropriate use of it that can apply so it isn't pure bullshit. 

however, it has been entirely co-opted by the tucker carlson/sean hannity wing of the republican party and then derivatively by the right wing internet army and it's use in most contemporary political discussion certainly signals (ha) pure bullshit.

We are doing a cool side event with justice Sotomayor here in austin in late October if any of y’all are interested in helping out (just helping organize, obviously not monetary).   Unless your names are JS1 or hank because you guys are just plain mean and you can stay where you’ve always been, at the kids table.  

But seriously; will be a really cool event dovetailing on her book

IMO, she's just another example of someone putting themselves above the country. 

I thought she should have walked away when Obama started his second term for exactly this reason. 

No one needs to be in a position of power past the age of 80....I'd actually probably much younger, but good God.

For the sake of the country's future, I hope she can at least make it to January 2021

This. Her selfishness & arrogance will end up hurting this country for decades and decades after she dies.

While I’m in agreement that you have posted a gif, and that gif appears to be you or someone else giving me the bird, so while I get all that, I’m at a loss as to what you’re trying to say? 

Are you now virtue signaling?

When used as a perjorative: It is a public statement to show others that you feel kind - usually following a modern trend (despite actually caring nothing or taking no further actions based on it).

The best non-controversial example I can give is the Ice Bucket Challenge or "I stand with XXX" trends.

So its kinds of like when trump refers to himself as the second coming, or the messiah, or he’s the only one who can fix _______.

Is that what virtue signaling is?

Because if so it would make a whole lot of sense as to why the trumpkins use it so much. 

What with the every accusation is actually confession thing and all.

Above definition is more general, for politics it usually involves conflation of policy and ideal, "I support/oppose school vouchers because education is important."

It doesn't necessarily need be untrue, it can be irrelevant:

"I support [female] because women are equal to men."

"I hate ICE because illegal immigrants are just trying to improve their lives."

"I back the blue because they have families to go home to."

If she ends up on life support near the election and Trump loses,   Trump will issue an executive order to remove her life support,  and the party of life won’t bat an eye.

Still confused. So by these definitions, everything non-piece of shit people think is virtue signaling?  Doesn’t really sound like a problem.

how so?

 

other than sweeping the House, Senate and White House, and passing appropriate legislation across all 14th/5th amendment issues (i.e. civil rights, etc.), there is no way we see progress on progressive values in our life times if Trump gets to appoint to her seat.  the Court will be OVERWHELMINGLY conservative and worse, YOUNG.

Not sure if she can hold out past the 2020 election and that too if the Democrats don't fuck that up (although the way the economy looks to be heading, Trump is giving the Dems an assist).

The Dems have really screwed themselves in terms of how the Senate is so difficult for them to win. Part of it is state demographics but they’ve also allowed too many states to flip red without a fight.  Concentrate on the cities might be a good strategy for long term chances In the House and Presidency but kills you in the senate. Which takes away the judiciary.

even if trump loses and Ginsburg remains in the Supreme Court until early 2021, it seems unlikely Moscow Mitch won’t still be the senate leader. And he may be satisfied never bringing a Dem justice nominee for a vote. He might be ok with the voting makeup of 8 justices.

and even if these is enough pressure to force a vote, a gop led senate can just vote no.

If she dies in 2020, at least we could hammer repubs for being hypocritical assholes. Everyone remembers when merrick garland didn’t even receive a hearing in 2016 because Moscow Mitch said he wouldn’t. That’s the only reason. I really hate mcconnell.
 
 
Hammer then for hypocrisy, That's cute.

This is a fascinating response.  Defending virtue-signalling by virtue-signalling.  It's like the Inception of political marketing.

And no.  But that's the entire point of virtue-signalling.

What the fuck is virtue signaling?  Sounds like something made up by people who have now idea what the fuck they're talking about. 

Reminds me of cultural appropriation.

Your attack on virtue signaling seems like virtue signaling to me. And if you attack me that’s obviously more virtue signaling against a non virtue signaler.

The story is that Ginsburgs cancer was not found to have spread so that is good, short term news. If fully accurate, that’s good news for her.  Still it can’t be easy for an older person to go they months of radiation treatment. Must take a toll.

RBG dying in 2020 would be a disaster for the GOP. Last thing they need is the rallying of Democrat voters like what happened in 2016 when Scalia died. It also doesn't help that Kentucky Mitch said it's inappropriate to pick a SCOTUS judge in an election year.

If she died on Nov. 1, 2020, Turtle would confirm a new judge by election day. He would have no trouble holding a press conf. and giving you a history lesson as to why he did it, and he would sleep like a baby that night.

If he did that we would have at least a total of 13 Supreme Court justices within a year, tops. Probably sooner.
