I have looked past Nikkie's TDS for as long as I could stomach it, but in this time of national crisis her repeating Bogus CNN crap slamming the POTUS finally pushed me to hit the unsubscribe button.

Of course, even though I have supported her for years watching all those horrid commercials on YouTube this means I am a trans-phobic, racist, anti-science card carrying national socialist in her eyes, but TDS is a serious problem and I hope she gets help for her illness. If she ever gets off of the oppression Olympics bandwagon I hope I hear about it somewhere, because I really enjoyed her content when she could avoid bringing her deranged politics into it.

Then again, she knows her audience. I expect to be slammed in this thread...

I, as an "Independent" voter, can agree with many things any politician espouses and disagree with other things. However, I know many people who start from the premise that ANYTHING our current President does is wrong and can never even entertain the possibility of his doing something with which they agree. The label of TDS may be severe, but justified. I don't care about Nikki's political, or gender preference beliefs. I am a channel subscriber. But I do dislike it when the expression of these beliefs hinders the presentation of what would have otherwise been current and insightful information about electric vehicles, her "raison d'etre". I hope that no one "slams" you and that you continue to help me learn about EVs. But I think that we ALL should strive to keep the Forum apolitical.

This is the basement, and I have said nothing wrong, offensive, or against forum rules. You just disagree with it.

Political censorship and Cancel culture are myths... until you have someone calling for YOUR thread to be closed that is not offensive, threatening, or in violation of any rules.

Keith: You are right; I actually agree with you on the topic of having intelligent, reasoned conversation. I am not a POTUS supporter, but I understand the need for both sides to listen to the other. Maybe this forum is different, but I have yet to find one of my car forums where any intelligent commentary is not perverted by others who have such strict views that they can't abide any others. I hope I'm wrong about this forum.

Keith, I commend you for your patience. I unsubscribed from her channel months ago for much the same reasons. The TDS "pandemic" has caused more harm to our country and it's citizens than the current health crisis.

Yes, Nikkie is the host of TEN (Transport Evolved News) and the transport evolved YouTube channel... and in general I loved her content. It is informative, well presented, and almost alway too the point... as long as she was not actively trying to drive away non-leftist viewers with her political interjections. She has several channels and could have devoted one of them to anti-government content if she liked, and left TEN to its mission statement. To promote green energy and transportation... but she seems to be unable to NOT vomit up leftist talking points any time there is any excuse to interject her political beliefs.

One that really got me was pointing out that her friend from the UK (who looks like a generic white chick) was singled out by ICE traveling to Austin Texas because she is a POC... the woman in question is more pale than the majority of European descended Texans... but she was singled out not because of her British accent... but because she is a POC... I almost unsubed at that point. My wife is from the Philippines and we were also questioned on a trip near the Texas Arizona border. She is a legal immigrant and presented her green card... no problems. It never occurred to myself or my wife to consider this racist (the ICE agent questioning us was Hispanic if that matters), but racism is the default assumption from Nikkie and her bubble friends.

Well, I guess this new video talking about PHEV would also be not welcomed. ;)

I don't even know who you're talking about but 👍 for posting something expected to get slammed.

I'm a sucker for an underdog.

Also wondering what total dissolved solids have to do with anything..

I have voted indy for decades.. but man some of my life long friends I would swear have 90% of their brain space devoted to hating Trump.

I feel like they will miss him when he's gone, they have spent so much time having old dependable right there for them to hate. :p

Easy for them to hate him when he tweets stuff just to get them riled up.... so sad that they don't see that what he is doing is intentional. It is juvenile of him to enjoy getting them spun up, but I guess everyone needs a hobby :D

It is easy for me, because I think of all politicians as scum to one degree or another. I don't overlook his faults (womanizing, being a blowhard, being arrogant, ... like most politicians) acting juvenile seems to be one of his faults not shared by most politicians... but I don't invent faults (racism, sexism, homophobia) to attribute to him out of blind hatred. Crap, he was a New York City democrat for years, never got called the litany of leftist slurs back then... that only started when he put an R after his name and beat the wicked witch of the east in the Electoral College.

Right. I think the majority of his supporters would admit his faults. Like you say, when all you are offered is scum, you pick and choose from the different flavors of scum that suit you least worst. The part where I am a sucker for underdogs comes in when I see clearly that there is an overwhelming bias against somebody. Who ever that may be at the moment. Be it Bernie, Trump, Tulsi or whoever the media and major political clout happens to be trashing at the time.

Or even if its a rando posting an unpopular stance on a forum like this thread... that is an underdog I will get behind every time.

You must know different supporters than I do. The ones I know buy into every retcon, excuse and rationalization provided, and will admit no wrong. Makes it hard to have a discussion of merits when every conversation begins with scorched earth.

IMO, I don't think "the basement" posts should appear in the "New" or "Popular" lists. You should have to go looking for it ... just like in a house.

Well said, I don't think commenting here will get any action taken in that direction. You may be better off expressing that to the upper management of the board, but here in the basement your comments are welcomed and listened too.

I work with a bunch of redneck hillbillies, we all know President Trump is a blowhard with some unsavory habits... the biggest strike against him here is being a New York liberal :) The problem is if someone starts off with un-true BS slamming the president (pretty much anything they get from CNN) then my coworkers get riled up and defensive and start sounding like rabid right wing nutjobs.

Guess so, my experience is the exact opposite of yours. The supporters I know of think he is a blowhard as above. My grandma for one would tell you so.
