They've been lying for a very long time.  Now, they've stopped trying to fool anyone outside their cult, and attack the very idea of facts.

I can't see this de-escalating. You can't deprogram 70 million cultists. Especially when they are essentially calling the shots as a minority government. You can't deNazify from within, and I don't see anyone else stepping forward internationally to do the job from without.

The GQP's power resides in its propaganda narrative.

Of course they are gonna double down on the big lie.

It's really all they have.

Time for the Dems and the corporate media to double down on the truth by calling this shiat out for what it is in increasingly starker terms.

All of this incredibly crazy bullshiat for Trump. All of it just to make motherfarking, sociopathic Trump happy. One guy. JFC. I can't even imagine what it's going to take for this bullshiat to end.

If history is any indicator all those wealthy asshats pushing this Trumpism should be warned. The MAGAidiots have no ideology, just anger. And they can easily replace A with B, like Antifa is the enemy today, maybe tomorrow it is rich asshats paying them slave wages. Think Occupy Wallstreet + Jan 6th, this time it is a swarm of red hatted angry MAGA storming corporate offices to hang the CEOs. After all, GQP is already starting the hate machine pointed at Wall Street and corps.

"Trump's favorability rating among Republicans has started to trail off ever since Election Day..."

From what I'm observing, it seems like they don't actually need him anymore -- he's a meme, now. The whole premise, supposedly, for refusing to let him go, impeach him, abandon him, was that they needed him to keep Republicans engaged.

But it seems as if he's just become an avatar or meme for a cause, a course of actions, that they've wanted to pursue or some time, now. And Trump's grievances expressed, coupled with the Big Lie, have animated them on their own, now

I think you are right.  It's hard to even describe, but I can tell from my own Congressional Rep's missive (mine happens to be the awful Jim Baird of Indiana) that he listens to NO ONE that is outside his circle of beliefs.  The weaker ones (like Baird) believe the bullshiat and are able to shrug off the people outside of their circle beliefs as people who hate the USA, or Commies, or whatever.  People like this have (maybe unknowingly) changed their system of right and wrong to benefit themselves.  You keep wondering if they will snap out of it, but will they if even the deaths of 550k people doesn't do it?  What does it take?
 
2021-05-09 7:41:22 AM  
How far ahead of 2022 are we talking?  I think they probably have a 16 to 20 year head start on abandoning the truth, if the target was always 2022.

There are a lot of grifters, mobsters, criminals, the GOP, media outlets, and traitors riding his coattails.  If they can weasel their way back into the power seat, they can get back to hiding the evidence and resume business as usual.

The longer they are out, the DOJ, IRS, FINCEN, and investigative journalists will use the time and opportunity to dig up the dirt, indict and prosecute.

The Big Lie is a criminal conspiracy. It must be exposed and prosecuted as such.

One at a time, is all the advice I can muster.  Identify half a dozen people around you who are in the vicinity of this madness.  Start trying to winnow away at it.  Especially after covid, DISTRACTION will be key.  They sit at home, sponge up hate from FOX News, go on the internet and read lies that reinforce that hate.

Maybe invite them to go fishing instead.

Oh, they are not lost. In fact, they are right where they want to be, an intersection where their supposed grievances allow them to act reprehensibly and where they dismiss any truth that does not align with what they wish to be true.

The truth hasn't mattered to the GOP while it has mutated over the last few decades, but now that they are in the internal purge over the big lie phase, everyone needs to be well aware that once it is complete, it's full on 100% Nazifying America by force from there.

I abandoned FB after 2016 when I saw how much my news feeds were being polluted with bots, trolls, etc.

But then I took a job as a portfolio assistant, and I started reading their quarterly reports and put the two together. Started seeing them in an entirely different, cynical and expedient light -- it really made me feel ill.

If you mean at the state and federal level, I would introduce you to Canada.

Of course that money goes into universal Healthcare, so there's that.

That some Americans in places like New York or Georgia, as examples of places with fairly rigorous tax regimens, are willing to put out $1000 bucks a month for their families Healthcare premiums on top of being taxed with federal, and SALT is mind blowing to me.

Sadly, everything that has happened in 2021 has only confirmed for the base the horrors to come.  People that don't look the same are moving into neighborhoods, elected officials no longer attend the exact Main Street church needed to assure the correct voters turning out, and even the death of the Limbaugh speaks to the impending doom of fewer recognizable voices in the media that look exactly as the ones viewing the screen and listening in.

The years of NPR and public access television being lampooned for being nerdy, over-detailed dullards with zero showmanship have made it damn near impossible to use them as a credible source when trying to educate or even converse with a member of the base.  It goes back to the old saying, if the truth is on your side, pound on truth, if the facts are on your side, pound facts.  If neither is on your side, pound the table.  That table pounding is very entertaining to the base, and requires nothing but emotion to feed it.
