    So a conservative got 40% positive coverage by the left wing media? Yet TS makes a sweeping generalization that he was "demonized?"

    STFU, the country as a whole liked and respected McCain, his political beliefs just weren't always popular and that's okay.

    The transformation of media opinion of McCain, and to a greater extent members of the Democratic party, has been nauseating. He went from being a villain to a hero all because he was a Rpeublican who stood up to Trump.

    I won't get into why it's such a preposterous and disingenuous change in attitude towards that man, but only because his corpse is still warm.

    No one is claiming he was the lefts darling. He had votes for repeal and replace, to restrict abortion rights, and voted on the party most of the time. During the campaign I assume he was demonized to a degree, because in primaries the Dems do that to each other too.

    It's just compared to Trump, he makes people long for a time when politicians had the decency to at least hide their repugnant traits. Shit we are doing that with fucking W, but it doesn't mean we liked him as a politician.

    Why can't people dare to say honest things like this about Senator McCain's character when the man was still alive and could actually hear them?

    Why wait until he's already dead?

    The man is dead and people and the media are paying their respects, this is the kind of thing that happens when people die. You must feel that the media should shit on him in death, that’s the sad truth that Trump era has ushered in.

    Fuck the media and the rest of America for being too PC in this instance. I’m sorry we couldn’t be ever lasting cunts like the rest of you, kid.

    It was difficult to make it through that Biden eulogy talking about McCain and his code and how honourable he was.

    His wife stayed true to him for 5 years during his capture. She was severely crippled in a car accident in the second year yet still fought hard campaigning and raising funds for his release. Once he returned he fucked other women behind her back and then dumped her because she was a cripple. He admitted to all of this.

    How can anybody with a straight face call such a degenerate an honourable man. Disgusting.

    Bullshit.

    Senator McCain was a respectable Senator who put his country above himself and his party, unlike the overwhelming majority of our Senate. We're not going to have a Senator that could be half the man McCain was. This is undeniable truth, even if you disagree with his opinions, just like Senator Biden acknowledged above.



    If there's any remaining doubt, go ahead and put your own Senators next to this "demon", especially the career politicians constantly being praised by the Media over the last few decades, and see how their characters compares.

    The media should have been fair to the man, go ahead and call a spade a spade, instead of making things up over the years just to demonize him when he was still alive, and then overly compensate and elevate him to sainthood now in order to use his corpse as a political ploy after his passing. That's something that dirty politicians do, self-respecting journalists should thrives to be better than that.

    As for those who continues to demonize the man even after death, soon you're going to wish that we had more "demons" in our government who could serve their country with half the honor as John McCain.

    He was the main proponent behind the total chaos in Libya and Syria.

    He helped bring back slavery to North Africa and the mass murder of children in the Levant by inciting toppling of dictators.

    If there is a god he will answer for this.

    McCain helped bilk seniors out of billions of dollars during the Keating and Loan scandal during the 1980s. Ruining many peoples lives in the process

    McCain, imo, is the perfect depiction of the “great republican lie.”

    You have this guy who appeals to seniors and veterans and in reality he did everything to fuck these people over masquerading as their hero and appealing to their gullible side. Having them believe he’s on their side but in reality he wasn’t.

    You remember the economy under Bush? You must have always been poor.

    In the other thread I posted one writer who questioned his white supremacy problem and then when he died called him an "eloquent voice" that is what pisses me off. For retweets for God sake.

    It literally would be like if Rosie O'Donnell/Elizabeth Warren died and Donald Trump gave a 10-minute speech on how great they were.
    Would you buy it?

    The one he inherited from Clinton- prior to jacking up the deficit? Or the one he handed to Obama?

    He gave me a nice $600 stimulus check though so that was some pretty cool redistribution.

    With all due respect, John McCain was a weak man who wholeheartedly deserved every bit of the President's scorn.
