One person, one vote... slippery slope to Republicans losing power.
 
2021-05-11 11:01:59 PM  
I wonder if he knows he described the definition of "electorate" as something scary to...that.
 
2021-05-11 11:21:32 PM  
No

That's new.  Hannity caring about credibility.
 
2021-05-12 4:56:15 AM  
Damnit, I thought we'd already destroyed electoral credibility!  Will you people please get me the updated talking points?  I cannot work like this!

I mean, now is  great time for software and IT security specialist to tell their marketing peers to shut the fark up about encryption and surveillance. The USA has a long history of bullshiat voting sescurity, but the USa has also developed a huge industry of locking access to devices, and surveilling every detail of a person's life, so that a corporate entty who is beyond privacy law and beyond consumer protection law can grant access to every part of life, through different tiers of digital tech, like smartphones.

So the security that comers from Apple, Google, IT departments, phone apps, etc., is mixed with racism and sexism, and patriarchal state powers (as n the legitimate government behaves like an angry dad who thinks rich people are his boss and the citizens are his kids). The best thing we could see from the USA, right now, is all those corproations screaming that their security protocols are not apprpriate for three things:

voting
access to rights
access to justice

And yes, that means they must, absolutely must, stop taking on the contracts to ensure voting, rights, and justice. That includes voting machine, unfortunately. Othwrwise, Hannity will continue to describe the reality, while the courts' decisions will continue to describe a hypothetical but naively incorrect wish list.

It's early Wednesday morning.

I'm already worried about work e-mail. Now I have to think about this crapola, too?

No, you dont have to think about Hannity.
Unless you want to make space for him

"...what is a huge, massive attempted power grab by the radical democratic socialist party."

Where are all of these "radical socialists," Sean? If you can produce one, I'll vote for him/her.

Not even Bernie is a "radical socialist." Also, democratic socialism is common in the world, and those countries routinely rank higher in quality of life surveys than we do. I say we give it a try.

And FFS stop calling everyone who even slightly disagrees with you "radical." Oh wait, you need to scare your pants-wetting audience to keep those ratings up.

Propaganda to keep the masses divided and infighting.  All for the benefit of the ultra wealthy.
 
2021-05-12 5:39:48 AM  
What he just wants rich landowners able to vote?

Yeah, he was just trying to see how many big scary words he could fit in one sentence.  The shorter and scarier the soundbite, the better it plays on Twitter when it's re-Tweeted by all his sycophants

The original draft said "Radical DemoCommunIslamoFasciSocialists" but it all wouldn't fit on a single teleprompter screen

This bill is unconstitutional. It assumes federal powers reserved to states, allows ballot harvesting and drops voter ID requirements everywhere.

HR1 is a joke and shows how little space there is between Democrats and Chavistas these days.  Venezuela is a disaster, not a roadmap.

For his viewers it IS VERY easy to vote and he knows it.

Of course he's just trying to scare his viewers with voter fraud that never happened and by classifying a moderate party as socialist to scare his viewers.  But I honestly challenge anyone to find a more racist statement from Hannity than this one.  He definitely needs to be fired for it.  He'll get a raise.

They not only rate higher on quality of life, but they also rank higher on degree and quality of freedom/democracy.

Your reality is not a shared reality.

TIL: 'Electoral credibility' means 'only Republicans are allowed to win elections'.

When we finally give out the right to voter fraud and exercise it, I'm voting for Michael Jackson 85 million times.  And he will be revealed as alive and the true owner of the pizza parlor basement.  then we will control everything and change all the laws to make Fox illegal and track all television channels and viewers.  Only then can we execute all the criminals who watch Fox.

Wanna know how I know you've never bothered to actually read the constitution?

Art. I, § 4, cl. 1 - "The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but Congress may at any time make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Place of chusing Senators."

Unconstitutional? Have you even heard of the VRA?

*head pat*

You're so cute when you try talking one an adult. Now off you go, you little scamper. Back to the internet salt mines.

If we let some people vote, we have to let everybody vote!  It will be anarchy, or democracy, one of those words ending in "y."  Venezuela-y

"radical socialists"

 
2021-05-12 6:57:51 AM  
Yeah, Sean says a lot of crazy shiat that makes no objective sense in order to prop up the GQP narrative.

It's his job.

This week it's pretending that GQP voter suppression efforts are really Dem's undermining election integrity.

Scared, fragile wypipo person says what, now?
 
2021-05-12 7:15:00 AM  
I would like to see what he would say if suppose he got what he wanted, and it were universally covered, and it was hard for Sean Hannity to vote. I believed it would then be 'targeted persecution.'
 
2021-05-12 7:22:15 AM  
You know what else helps with credibility?  Accepting the results.
 
2021-05-12 7:31:49 AM  
Yes, to republicans allowing people to freely vote is the worst possible outcome for a democratic republic.
 
2021-05-12 7:37:58 AM  
Poor guy has to twist himself in knots coming up with ways to say "only white people should vote" both without actually having to own those words.
 
2021-05-12 7:47:36 AM  
Where'd he get that 120 retired flag officers claim?

I did some googling and I can't find anything about that.

Everybody gets the same amount of votes regardless of their wealth? That's socialism!

Regardless, this is 120 people who used to give orders to their subordinates and not let them vote on everything.

I'm sure that made sense in your head.

It is 20 years past time to end fox and all of the slime it contains.

It's fox.  They just make shiat up as long as it helps their narrative.

It was at a secret meeting in a church basement. You wouldn't know about it because the Proud Boys did such great security.

Russia and Nazi Germany are warnings, not guidebooks. The GOP is a joke.  They aren't the butt of the joke...they ARE the joke.
