And by 'we' we mean mainstream journalists.
Evan would you please explain WTF just happened in Argentina and how worried we should be?
I mean, really, WTF.
It is difficult not to be terrified.
Commenting late b/c it was an especially grueling weekend in retail hell to kick off the even more grueling retail holiday season. Anyway, couple of quick reminders:
-Tech companies have always been complicit with fascist atrocities; IBM made the punch card system used to deport Jews to concentration camps.
-Remember way back around 1933 when an NYT op-ed said Hitler might be a swell guy, and we should give him a chance? And then they buried the miniscule amount of Holocaust coverage they ran in the back pages in favor of war coverage? Pepperidge Farm remembers. (And there were plenty of foreign correspondents waving red flags; I highly recommend reading 'Last Call at the Hotel Imperial' by Deborah Cohen.)
HE IS CAMPAIGNING FOR CONCENTRATION CAMPS.
JESUS CHRIST, MEDIA,
DO YOUR FUCKING JOBS!
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?!?!?
The Verminator doesn't feel pity, remorse, or fear. It absolutely won't stop until you're dead.
When are democrats going to start showing these horrific fascist wet dreams on TV and internet 24/7? This fucker is out there screaming that he's the next Hitler. WTF?
The aforementioned “journalists” are not oblivious or uncomprehending; they are doing 𝘦𝘹𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘤𝘰𝘳𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘵𝘰𝘤𝘳𝘢𝘵 𝘣𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘰, because turning the US “into a fascist shithole state like [Shitler’s] beloved Russia” is something they’ve been working toward since Trump was still learning real estate grifting at his father’s knee.
Hell, they don’t even dare point out that the de facto Majority Leader of the House of Representatives is gawdamn Putin himself, not that little nazi tool from Louisiana nobody’s ever heard of.
I'm fucking terrified, and if you're not then you aren't paying attention.
I remember folks saying Trump was a fascist and then perpetual colllege sophmores who've just declared poli sci saying "Well, acstualllyy..." Good times.
Why is this dim, slobbering criminal demagogue still at large?
I have to watch some reruns of Mr Rogers' Neighborhood.
Trump/Maga 2.0 would be a living nightmare. But I’m guessing the voter turnout will be the highest ever, probably by a lot. It’s cute that some polls and pundits support the fantasy that a Trump conviction will cost him votes. Haven’t we all been paying attention? Trump is like an evil Obi-Wan Kenobi, if you strike him down, he will only become more powerful than you can imagine. His supporters are entranced, enraptured, and hopelessly spellbound by his cult of personality. They are voting for him, lock, stock and barrel. Our best chance is even better turnout than 2020. We want 90 million votes for Biden, whether you embrace Biden or not, to prevent another period of chaos far uglier than round 1.
Do we bombard their Project Adolf web site with online applications? Asking for a friend.
As I keep trying to point out, he's gonna have a hard time pulling this off from his DC or GA prison cell. And before that, he'll be spending most of his days sitting quietly in a court room in DC and ATL while juries made up of this vermin he describes convict him of dozens of felonies and sentence him to spend the remainder of his sad sad days in whatever confinement we can come up with for a former "president" who tries to overthrow the government and steals its secrets to sell to our enemies (allegedly!).
We are not Weimar. We know who Hitler was. We outnumber the billionaires and they about to FAFO.
Still make sure everyone votes.
That's the whole comment. Carry on soiling yerselves.
Have already ranted, this whole thing is a literal joke that Drumpf doesn't realize is at his expense. The last thing the neo Confederate majority/ plurality of MAGA wants is an actually strong executive branch. The only thing they expect or need from this is a trigger for a civil war where all they have to do is walk out while everyone else is killing each other.
Ta, Evan. This is disgusting and alarming, and we HAVE to vote for Democrats in overwhelming numbers.
