Trump’s Online Minions Have A New Strategy: Deny Women The Right To Vote

“RepealThe19th” latest battle cry from the alt-right depths.

You know what could really turn this election around for Donald Trump? Legalize sexism. You see, basically every poll shows the Republican nominee winning with men, often handily. Unfortunately for him, women vote slightly more than men and they are by a large margin voting for Hillary Clinton. Or, against Trump. Either way, he’s not doing so well with women these days, to put it mildly. Or, as one polling expert put it, “Women Are Defeating Trump.”

So, the Trump Trolls online, aka the Alt-Right, have come up with a new social media strategy they are calling #RepealThe19th. Because if you can’t beat them, just call it locker room talk and change the Constitution.


Sadly, this briefly became the top-trending topic on Twitter. Although in fairness, the stream was full of people mocking this completely bonkers idea once it began going viral. But that didn’t stop a few “unshackled” extremists from throwing their hefty intellectual weight behind the idea:

Are these real Trump supporters or just annoying trolls trying to stir up some controversy online? Well, if it’s the latter, then mission accomplished. Because it really should go without saying that denying any citizen the right to vote, let alone half the country, is an idea so dumb that hopefully no one is taking it seriously.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
