I can't remember the last time Republicans accepted a Democratic victory. Hell, I can't remember the last time Democrats accepted a Democratic victory.

So their grand strategic plan is to evolve into the Larouchites?   Oh no, we must stop them.

RasIanI: The entire past 4 years has been dry run for future authoritarianism. There will be a New Jim Crow, eventually unless they're movement is stopped.


It won't be. They may be enthusiastically 100% for Jim Crow on ideological grounds, but probably the majority of even the left-leaning white middle class is all for either soft support of Jim Crow or for at least quietly looking the other way out of personal necessity.
-
Like it or not, Jim Crow is one of the few topics popular on both sides of the political divide. Only one side openly revels in doing so with overtness and cruelty, but both view it as a hard necessity.

Fonaibung: A soft, disorganized coup attempt is still a coup attempt.

They've been suppressing votes for years and stole two SCOTUS picks despite being a minority party. They have told us our voices don't matter, multiple times over.


While I agree with you and hate the GOP with all my being, I will note that however you slice it, 2 of the 3 SCOTUS appointments were legit. Kennedy retired mid-term so there's no argument there. As for the Scalia and Ginsberg deaths, the GOP either robbed Obama or they robbed Biden. If they adhered to a single set of rules, we still would have gotten only one of those picks.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: The Republican party needs to be put out of our misery


The problem is that the bigots, the bumpkins, the knuckle-draggers, the god-botherers, those with a less than 60 IQ, NASCAR-watchers, tobacco chewers, mouth-breathers, FOX News fans, Coors Lite-drinkers, pickup-truck drivers, old bikers, unemployed steel workers and conspiracy-theorists just farkin' LOVE the Greedy Old Pigs.

capn' fun: Hand to God, I honestly don't know if the GOP will even exist in 2024.


Why not?  They will control the Senate, and look lined up to regain the House.  They may even have the presidency if their delaying shiatshow continues until January 6th.  As some Farker pointed out in another thread, the 2020 election actually went rather well for the GOP.  Future elections won't matter very much.

They two parties aren't at all the same.
The Republicans job is to attack, obstruct, and delegitimize -ALL- Democrats.
The Democrats job is to attack, obstruct, and delegitimize only the Democrats that win.
