(Washington Post)   Gosh, what could possibly be behind the Right's absolute hatred for Stacey Abrams? I mean, it's inexplicable. Like, you know, my dog hates the Fed Ex truck. HATES it. But there's no real reason for her to hate it. It must just be like that, I guess   (washingtonpost.com) divider line

If you watch Stacey Abrams talk and hate her, you need professional help.  She's a nice, smart and articulate woman.  Warning: she is not conservative.  She believes in liberal/democratic principles.

If this angers you, you are an idiot.

My dog hates not only the Fed Ex truck, but the UPS truck as well. She already has a very strong guard instinct but those two in particular send her into a barking, growling, pillow-thrashing frenzy every time -- the very sound of one of those trucks, a half mile away ascending the mountain, will wake her from a total slumber no matter where she is in the house. A friend of mine who either knows about dogs or is good at pretending to know about them told me once that the reason for this is that she sees these delivery people as interlopers whom she has successfully driven off before, but then they keep returning in defiance of her already besting them. I like this explanation -- it makes sense to me -- but I don't know enough about dog psychology to know if it's true.

But maybe the Right works the same way. They successfully prevented Stacey Abrams from having any political relevance before, but she refuses to stay irrelevant in direct defiance of that early victory over her. Maybe they just need some pillows to throw around. I can spare a few but they have tooth marks in them.

Black men who don't know their place are bad enough, but black women also, that's just more than not right, that's down RIGHT discouraging.

I don't know. A lot on the right keep suggesting her for Biden's Veep. I guess a lot of them DO like her?

FYI: America actually has a really long and dirty history of irrationally hating people like Stacey Abrams.
 
2020-05-20 2:25:44 PM  
Abrams has committed the cardinal sin for an African American woman in the eyes of the right: She will not accept the legitimacy of elections won through voter suppression, and she will not be appropriately docile and humble.

It's mostly that one.

I think the GOP hates the UPS truck more than the fedex truck, if you know what I mean.

Icarus_Rising: She will not accept the legitimacy of elections won through voter suppression


This.  One big reason for all the hate is her drive to get people to vote.  In general, more people voting = defeat for the GOP.  Look at Trump bashing the Postal Service.  He's trying to undermine public confidence in it as part of his attempt to derail voting by mail this fall.

My dog barks at UPS trucks and the mailman. FedEx trucks and Amazon Prime deliveries don't bother her at all.

I'm pretty sure she's a Republican.

She's not giggly and petite.  She's not into straightening her hair.  She's not into fitting into anything, be it fashion, politics or a woman's place.  She is not about to be a typical female in a crowded room, all big eyed and mostly silent while men are talking.

To your average bigot, she is N word in big bold letters.  And when some GOP operatives start thinking about her on the ticket, visions of KKK rallies dance in their wee little heads.

They think that it'll cause Biden to lose.  Of course they'll suggest it.

Sadly, I don't think they're wrong.  Although, I still don't understand the fascination with her.

Start ordering doggy treats and toys from somewhere like Chewy.   Give them to her ASAP on delivery. Eventually she'll associate treats and fun with the delivery truck

She is reckless, ungracious and pretty arrogant... blaming her loss on anything and everything but herself and her policies and refusing for weeks to concede.  That pretty much sums it up.

Some people just don't like her because she won't act like an adult.

Well, at least the dog hates both the Fedex and UPS truck. If it only hated the brown truck, you'd have to spend some cash on a doggy sensitivity class.

That's what I was getting at. As for bizarre fascination, it's still nothing compared to how they feel about AOC.

Sounds like she should be Trump's running mate.
 
2020-05-20 2:37:01 PM  
Besides the obvious racist and misogynistic reasons, there's the fact that she came *this close* to winning the GA governors race, and probably would have if the "winner" wasn't also in charge of running the election. She must be crushed at all costs so she never threatens the White Power Structure again.
 
2020-05-20 2:38:26 PM  
Last time one of "those people" were on the Presidential ballot "those people" came out to vote in droves. Also, she's pretty uppity what with being highly educated and daring to want to be governor in a Southern state. But don't you dare call them racists, because that hurts their feelings.

My dog barks at everyone, even me, but especially big trucks (FedEx, UPS, etc). There's a window she can see through as you walk up to the door, and she'll see me or another family member and go nuts, and it lasts until they're in the door then she's done. She also barks at me when I take out the trash, but it's much more of a "don't leave me" bark than a "go away" bark. And I think from her perspective, when she does it, I always come back, so she needs to keep doing it.

She probably stole a TV or something. That happens. It could have happened. We don't know the whole story. And it's wrong to assume we know just because Republicans say racist shiat about her and every other person of color.

Just because they do or say racist things doesn't mean they ARE racist and you're the real racist for saying otherwise.

Are you the asshole that goes on and on about how the Civil War wasn't fought over slavery? And now you are bashing a female AA politician in the South with no substantive criticisms? Huh, what a coincidence.

I have no strong opinions on her other than that the ga election was clearly not on the up and up and she likely would have won had it been a fair election.

Other than that though I have to say that the more people insist that I have to love her and want her to be president the more it irks me. She's fine. Stop trying to make fetch happen though.

I think that there are better options for Joes running mate than her.

That being said, I hope he keeps an active role in politics. I think it's safe to say that Georgia would be in a lot better shape today if she was in charge instead of Kemp.

As best as I can tell the North did not fight the war over slavery but the South did.  The North was pressing policies for the gradual abolishment of slavery, the south shot first, war ensued, and the North said fark it all you are all emancipated.

The Republican guy she ran against was conveniently in charge of the election he won by less than 50,000 votes after he purged the voter rolls of 670,000 voters. How dare her ask for an investigation (which never occurred). Yep, what an ungrateful arrogant black woman.
