You can tell how pissed he is walking to the podium.
Finally someone said what needs to be said.
Trumpsters don't care.

All of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this.

Damn that interpreter is amazing, conveying at different times anger, sadness, confusion, and exasperation.

I've seen him in other press conferences, and you would be correct.

Nicely done Mr. Georgia Official.

And yet they wouldn't flinch if one of their cult members came up and shot them both in the face.

He waited until he and his employees were getting death threats.

That's not heroic - that's generic self-preservation.

What stupid-ass dildo put a Hero tag on this?

Where the f*ck was this guy's anger for all of the other threats and actual deaths the Trump administration has put the country through?

Reminds me of myself. When it comes to my job I'm a rather calm guy, always trying to be professional. But very rarely people manage to piss me right off and then some. If there's injustice, if people try acting behind my back and I become aware of it etc. Then I turn into Sterling above and it feels good.

What this guy said is true with every word and he is right to call them all out. The republicans have every chance to prove wrongdoing. They have failed miserably in cour for almost FORTY times, so badly that they desperately thought it a clever legal maneuvre to swith the burden of proof to the other side. Yet they keep the story hot for their cult followers because they need to grift more money, because they need the TV ratings, because they need that anger about the alleged voter fraud boiling because it keeps the deplorables in line. It is despicable and I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if there were some real acts of violence and innocent deaths by Jan 20th.

I wouldn't lose much sleep if the right wing crazies attacked the "sane" republicans.... because they aren't sane. They made the Frankenstein they should bear the brunt of it.

If they really wanted to stop this they would either switch parties or become independents and caucus with the democrats to ensure a complete overthrowing of R power.

Such a weak imbecile. Embarrassing anyone would want him as leader 4 years ago, let alone now.

This GA election official just ad-libbed a more coherent, compelling, and worthwhile speech, while clearly distressed, than the guy quoting him could ever hope to give. *Anyone* would have been a better president.

Eh, it's not like we'd have heard of him if he said stuff like that about DACA or Iran or something.

Facial expressions are part of ASL. It's not just the hands and arms. It's the whole body, and yes, including the face. A good interpreter (and this one is goood!) conveys the emotions of the speaker's tone of voice. This is why ASL interpreters don't wear masks while interpreting even though they're not vocalizing.

The term you're looking for, Mr. Sterling, is stochastic terrorism.
 
2020-12-02 4:27:18 AM  
Excellent video, excellent speech. Well spoken for how angry he clearly is.

Also MAN the interpreter is top notch. I think there's something fascinating about the way emotion was translated into body language here from both parties, this would be a great video to study body language and communication in a lot of different contexts.

This guy can go get farked with a white hot iron.

He's one of the reasons we have Trump. And if the Trumpster fire weren't threatening his party, he'd put on his garbage smile, lean over his desk, and tell you that he's restricting voting rights and gerrymandering the district for the good of the country.

He's like a rat fleeing a sinking ship.And he will say anything, I repeat anything as long as he was sure he'd get a personal benefit from it, or it benefited The Party. He's just another frothing, trumphimping conservative and I hope his tears are extra farking salty when the republican schism gives the senate to the democrats.

fark conservatives, and fark this guy right in his stupid eyesocket.

this is why it needs to stop.  There will never be "adequate evidence" to prove the fraud they want.  If you were to show the envelopes and signatures are kosher, they will find another thread to pick at.

Trumpers will not be satisfied until they get the result they want.

Even if they did find evidence they wouldn't let anyone else scrutinize it...like what Rudy and KrakenKaren are doing.

same.  I am glad someone is finally speaking up, just disappointed as to the motivation.  Until it becomes personal with conservatives, then it doesn't exist.

This is self-preservation now that the golem they created has turned into a monster

It's all so similar to creationism.

It turns out the people who didn't understand how evidence worked in those debates don't understand evidence now, either.  And we all know it's the same people.

Which is why I will have no sympathy for them if trolly left wingers use the right's stupidity to convince them to not vote in the GA run-offs or any other such shenanigans. We see how stupid and gullible they are, why not use it as an advantage, especially since "When they go low, we go high," never works as there is NO bottom.
