Perhaps we should just stop that from happening and have a free election.

I would love to watch that happen if it did. I know it won't. They have this election rigged so much that they are worthy of execution. But they have to be tried first. Who will charge them for these crimes they have openly committed? Any ideas?

"The nation"?  Hardly.  Trump supporters is more like it.  Those people will believe anything.
 
2020-09-11 12:08:50 AM  
Yeah, I think we might need some blue helmets at our polling places.

It doesn't matter who is doing it. What matters is that Trump et al are doing farkall to stop it.

 No gaslighting required for his supporters. They want to believe any lies they are told. The "3%ers going to Portland to set it right" was the ultimate example. Here's a couple hundred bikers going down the left side of the highway, with an exit sign in view with an airport symbol that says "London Gatwick". I pointed that out to someone who was spreading it and they continued spreading it. This was a real person, not an online presence. They want to be lied to, it's their fix.

Gaslighting?  Only for idiots.  Normal people know Russia is attacking again.

What is Russia telling the Republicans that China is doing?

I'm 51. Trump* is 74.
Based on age, statistically Trump* will drop dead from natural reasons before I will and I'll consider the day of his popping-off as a personal holiday.
I'll celebrate the shiat out of that day every year but I'm just bummed that I'm not younger so I'd have more years to do it.
fark you, Donald Trump*.  fark you*.  fark your family.  fark your administration.  The whole lot of you can eat dicks.

I don't remember ever hearing about foreign interference in any of our elections until trump became involved .. I wonder what changed to make that happen ..

"Gaslighting" is an attempt by an abuser to make the other person doubt their own memory/sanity by accusing them of forgetting/misremembering even trivial things, to lay the groundwork for future denials and/or claims that "nobody will believe" the victim "because everyone knows you're crazy".

And that's definitely something this White House does.

But, like, that doesn't mean that everything they say that isn't true is "gaslighting". Sometimes they're just lying! "Lying" is a useful word, and lefty outlets calling it "gaslighting" when they're making false allegations is no more accurate or impactful than when mainstream outlets call it "unsubstantiated allegations" or some other mealy-mouthed euphemism.

That's not how this works, Mr. Lahey.  You're missing the point.

I smoke two joints in the morning
I smoke two joint at night
I smoke two joint in the afternoon
It makes me feel all rightI smoke two joints in time of peace
And two in time of war
I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints,
And then I smoke two more

Preet Bharara.

If given the appropriate office, he can.

And he will.

When the Dutch got fed up with their prime minister, they killed his family and ate him.

If you've got initiative and are willing to put in the effort, the possibilities are boundless

Trump and Barr having success in fellating each other...

That's my interpretation of the thread title and article anyway.

Murderers. Traitors. It's all in a days work for these subhumans.
 
2020-09-11 5:02:34 AM  
The worst part is that Trump isn't going to be the last person to successfully use these techniques.  There's a GOP congressman or state senator out there furiously scribbling his plan to destroy the country and get a theocracy out of the ruins and Trump has written his playbook.

Oh my gawwwwd FINE. Here you go:

Jill Stein is under attack from European so-called "Green" parties! Wake up sheeple! Reinhart Butkofer is taking control of US elections by throwing around shady accusations! And what about this: Balthasar Glättli, a Green Party member of the Swiss National Council, told me. If he were in the US, he said, "personally, I wouldn't vote Stein...."

And yet practically nobody is talking about this gratuitous European gaslighting of the American public.

1) It's a hostile domestic power that is attacking our election.
2) One party is responsible for most of it.

You mean the guy who was in charge of the a Trump soho case who decided not to prosecute ? That guy

He could have spared us from Trump years ago

The problem with most people is they have no concept of scale, if you try and bring up the NRA and its connections to foreign money, or Trump using Montenegro as a threat which mirrors Russian policy, or the Helsinki meeting where he favored Putin over our intelligence agencies, or Wikileaks being used a conduit for Russian hacking, or eight GOP Senators flying to Moscow for July 4th prior to the midterms, their notion of a response is "Well I bet China does it as well." Which, supposing they do, they don't do it to the magnitude of using an entire political party as their vassal state for their talking points and policy goals.

/See also: income inequality, and the amount of wealth people believe the top 0.1% have, compared with what they actually have.

Prosecutors who don't go after white collar criminals should be disbarred.
