(Vice)   The Democratic bot army that is going to stop Republicans from voting in California recall election will also reinstate Trump as president. Somehow, that last part is always a little hazy   (vice.com) divider line

QAnon followers are claiming, without evidence,

There's an old English word for that, "lying," you should start using it.

FTFA: If that happens, the front-runner at the moment is Larry Elder, a Black right-wing radio host who is an ardent Trump supporter and who says he will remove mask and vaccine mandates if he is voted in. He also recently argued that slave owners are owed reparations because their "property" was taken from them.

But Enslavers already got Reparations after the war because their "property" was taken from them. At least in Washington, DC.

And that's why you need to check your scripts before unleashing a bot army.

Christ, I wish the Democrats had a bot army.

If they really wanted to own the libs, they would vote for only Democrat candidates, the more progressive the better.  Then, the libs will feel absolutely crushed when Trump is reinstated and makes them powerless in the time it takes to order a Diet Coke.

I know that with the American Taliban every accusation is a confession, but does it really count if they're accusing their declared enemies of using their own in-house tactics?

They don't need a bot army.  They just need to convince the recallers that mail-in voting would be converted by the libs into a vote against the recall, and that only vote-in-person is trustworthy.  Then the turn-out for the recallers will be so abysmally small that they'll lose.
It isn't that hard.  I did it on a local (cen cal) forum the other day and had several anti-Newsom people agree 100% with me.
Easy - peasy.

Since CA is not big on stupid fake audits this their attempt to throw suspicion on the election. If Newsom is not recalled you can bet they will be bleating about cheating. It will mostly be about mail-in voting and ballot harvesting.

Calling it now.

I got a few cards asking for verification of people who do not live here (I have been here for around 15 years) and may have never lived here and don't know all the previous tenants names. With all the BS surrounding elections and their tricks I thought it might be some trick but it looks legit. I tossed them into the round file in several pieces.

/caution is good nowadays

As well as seeking to ensure that people vote to recall Newsom, QAnon followers are already spreading conspiracies about election fraud should the outcome of the vote not go their way.

Damn! My previous post was before I read down this far. I knew before I got past the first graff what was going on.

Oh they've already started with the crap about the holes in the envelopes in LA.  I just hope the GOP can try to bludgeon fewer policemen this time around when they attack a capitol after they lose an election.

Anybody afraid of losing an election simply because they did not get enough votes, and this is the case, then they are losers.

Loo. Zers.

It's not that hard.  I've always wanted to do it, but I'm not hurting for money and I don't have the time or energy to do it.  Not that I want to do it for the money.  Just to show them how stupid and gullible they are.

All you have to do is say the most inflammatory shiat that they want to hear loud enough that it gets attention and bam, they fall in line.  They're so anti authority they immediately fall behind anyone who says stuff with enough authority..... without actually verifying any of their statements or seeing what their angle is or questioning their goals.

It's really funny and sad at the same time.  Their whole thing is "question authority and not bow to authority."  But then some grifter comes along that anyone that is willing to put 2 seconds of thought into their motives would see is a grifter and they just fall in line without second guessing or even questioning.

But then everyone else is sheep for using critical thinking skills and questioning their motives.

These are the same people that are fighting the vaccinations so hard an questioning every minutiae about the vaccine, but then are throwing their money at anyone who comes along with a PhD who says "vaccines bad" who has an unproven cure that nobody knows what is in it or it's efficacy..... without question.  It's oxymoronish.

No matter what you show or tell them they just don't see it.  No matter how obvious it is that they're doing exactly what they claim to hate is, you show them and they just can't put 2 and 2 together.

French Rage: I just hope the GOP can try to bludgeon fewer policemen this time around when they attack a capitol after they lose an election.


Why?

The police support recalling governor Newsom.

In fact, the recall was started by a retired cop.

If they attack the police they supporters of the recall will be attacking eachother.  I don't see a problem with it.  Maybe these cops might stop farking supporting these terrorists and letting them go if/when they get a taste of their "love" for the thin blue line.

I don't expect them to ever come around and realize they're idiots for being on that side, and will stop treating these terrorist with kid gloves.

That's a county by county thing. I don't think mine had the holes.

We all knew this was coming. You don't have to be Nostradamus on this one.

Zerochance: Any CA Farkers care to chime in on how this recall thing is going?  Newsom safe or nah?


There was mention he was doing well early on and I was pissed off that they were telling us anything. It is a form of voter suppression to let people know anything. If people think he is far enough ahead they may not vote.

I think they stopped that shiat and I saw a headline that the polls are opening today.

Short answer: We dunno. We'll have to see how it shakes out. Since a lot of the voting is by mail, and I think they are already counting judging by what I said above, it shouldn't take too long to find out.

By "bot" army I think he means Advertising.

We've seen what libs did to Texas and their crime hotline. Its obvious they can do the same to elections

From what I can see, their bot army seems to be concentrating its efforts on saturating Youtube with ads claiming TRUMP REPUBLICANS who are behind the recall are coming after your rights, your abortions, and your pronouns.

Last I heard the polling of likely voters was leaning more than 50% NO on the recall, but not by enough to project by a safe margin.

I blame the current state of programming on the History Channel for these assholes.
 
2021-09-07 8:15:52 PM  
I just want to say that I'm scared I'm actually starting to go crazy, watching these criticism race theory shouting matches, the religious right asserting itself, the crazy trumpists. Just today my dad tried to tell me masks aren't effective and he hates fauci because he says one thing then another, and i tried to explain scientific advancement to him.

The recall, the lies, I don't know how much more I can take. I'm about ready to burst into tears at any given moment.

You'll have to go to Japan or Philippines. His dad lives in the Philippines so he can fark children. So I've heard. Japan is also pretty lacks in their child sex laws.

Really?  Which commercials have been about pronouns?  Can you provide links?

Ever notice that constantly regurgitating Republican propaganda means you are always wrong? That's probably why you're angry all the time because nothing ever goes the way you believed.

Thanks for the reminder. Just filled out my ballot and will mail it tomorrow. Seeing lots of Recall Newsom signs around me, but I live in Bakersfield so that's to be expected.

I don't give a shiat about Newsom personally, but I'm worried about the vaccine mandate for health care workers being rescinded. I'm due in 7 weeks and I do not want unvaxed or unmasked nurses around me or my newborn. I'm afraid (maybe unnecessarily) a new governor would issue an EO forbidding employers from requiring masks or vaccines. I don't know how legally sound such an order would be, but I bet Mr. Slaveholders-deserve-reparations is stupid enough to try and out-asshole Abbott and DeSantis.

What in the actual fark? I think anyone but  most hardened and demented white supremists would have a difficult time making that statement. But a black guy?
