Hall Of Famer

Hall Of Famer (5/5)

  1. and I think we know which groups will fund them
  2. Only well-meaning patriots proudly flying upside down flags or the Stars and Stripes overlaid with Trump idolatry are allowed!
  3. There’s gotta be some big contradiction, potentially on a personal level, that many current Trumpers eventually reconciled (cognitive dissonance) and that was their dotted line. After that, everything else was effectively okay, and deflection/projection became the day to day coping mechanism. It’s played out this way publicly with most repubs of note, including many of Trump’s current biggest allies.
  4. not sure presumed pardon record versus established pardon record is the hill a Trumper wants to die on. (ex: Manafort, Stone, Bannon, Blagdonovich, etc) On topic: Hunter has a seedy past, and exploited his father’s name for egregious sums of money while also committing crimes. Difficult to argue that he is a victim of politics when he has profited so much from same. Overall, I’m glad he is being held accountable
  5. From 2020 — imagine waiting for hours, making the roadtrip, bringing the family to see Trump in your part of the world only to have eat this comment on the way home. What a self-indulgent asshole.
  6. A demagogue (from Greek, a popular leader, a leader of a mob, people, populace, the commons + leading, leader), or rabble-rouser, is a political leader in a democracy who gains popularity by arousing the common people against elites, especially through oratory that whips up the passions of crowds, appealing to emotion by scapegoating out-groups, exaggerating dangers to stoke fears, lying for emotional effect, or other rhetoric that tends to drown out reasoned deliberation and encourage fanatical popularity.[4] Demagogues overturn established norms of political conduct, or promise or threaten to do so.[5]: 32–38  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demagogue
  7. Trumpers: NPC laptop with salacious content = WIN Main Character with salacious activity and conspiring/paying to influence election results = FALSE, or, it’s all the same, see!
  8. Blah, blah, laptop. It’s still a fail at the end of the day. Wrong Biden, no matter how much the wannabes squint, smear and pretend. So fucking lame.
  9. Murdoch owns Fox and the NY Post. The laptop story was so out there the Fox guys didn’t run it, so it was pushed through their JV squad. The same people on Fox who have been desperately selling all kinds of scurrilous innuendo, half-stories, and gotcha TV hit spots against anything Demz for decades didn’t touch the then dubious laptop story. Hindsight needs to be in context, not drenched in narratives. This is not a MSM failure. Hardly any news source believed it, not even the biggest wishcasters, especially with the experiences from 2016 and Putin’s disinformation troll farms correctly earning the label “fake news” before Trump appropriated it.
  10. Biden, the pro elite socialist/communist who’s the only president to march on a worker’s picket line, ffs. “This November, we can stand up and elect someone who wants to stand with us and support our cause. Or we can elect someone who will divide us and fight us every step of the way,” said UAW President Shawn Fain. “That’s what this choice is about. The question is, who do we want in that office to give us the best shot of winning? Of organizing. Of negotiating strong contracts. Of uniting the working class and winning our fair share once again, as our union has done so many times in our nation’s history. We need to know who’s going to sit in the most powerful seat in the world and help us win as a united working class.” “Today I’m proud to announce that UAW is endorsing Joe Biden for President of the United States. And I am honored to invite Joe Biden to come address our great union, and join us in our fight for economic and social justice for the UAW and for the whole working class. UAW family, let’s stand up and welcome the man who stood up for us. Please welcome the current President of the United States, the man we will re-elect, Joe Biden!”
  11. moral victories are not very meaningful, but there may be an indicator that maga is more vulnerable than expected even in safe districts.
  12. I'm convinced self-awareness must be suspended to be a Trumper Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas) called former Speaker Paul Ryan (R) a “piece of garbage” after the former House Speaker called former President Trump “unfit for office” and vowed not to vote for him in November, in an interview earlier Tuesday. “Paul Ryan, you’re a piece of garbage. You’re a piece of garbage. And you we should kick you out of the party. For Paul Ryan to say he’s not voting for Donald Trump – that’s the problem with some of our Republicans. It’s guys like that,” Nehls told CNN’s Manu Raju, in an interview that aired early Wednesday. “Don’t go spouting your mouth off and saying you’re a conservative,” Nehls added. “You’re spitting in the face of the leader of our party, Donald Trump. I mean, grow up a little bit.”
  13. This kind of perfectly coordinated messaging from a news report feels particularly sinister. If they are all reading “from AP News… etc” then that’s understandable. But if it’s the same script from different stations, that sounds like editorial info from corporate being passed off as local news reporting. Recall historically there was a greater level of trust amongst local news anchors and their audiences than from national news broadcasts. Ex: Kari Lake in AZ. If this is being exploited, there needs to be some sort of disclosure, imo.
