fragMasterFlash: Fart_Machine: Mrtraveler01: Alien Robot: Sanguine Dawn: That should tell you just how toxic Larry Elder was to Californians.

Campaigning while black. How dare he.

His Trumpian approach to his shiatty campaign has nothing to do with him being black.

Nice try.

But he was one of the good ones!

California judged him by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin.


Hence why right-wingers are so upset ironically enough.

I wonder how the freepers are taking this:

Yes, and FAUX News called AZ for Biden before the polls closed. The real results are still pending with the AZ audit results due any day now.

Dems have perfected the art of wining elections without a need for voters ...

There's is no fixing our voting system. We've seen enough to know it's all about who can cheat the most and has the levers of power and connections to cheat the best wins. The Left has spent decades building their system within the voting system. Heck we've even caught them at it and it has done absolutely nothing....and year after year they just fine tune it more.


Also, It's about who owns the most- the dems own damn near everything- the courts, the police, the military, big bunsesses, the msm, lawyers, judges, heck they even own the SC-

Maybe there was election fraud. I find it hard to believe that 33% of Californians are death cultists. But I've never been there myself, so.


The rural parts of the state tend to be just as red as any red state, especially the far north and the Central Valley.

Two hours outside of any major city is Alabama, this is true no matter what state it is.

Two hours can't get you from LAX to Westwood on a Friday afternoon.

The rural parts of the state tend to be just as red as any red state, especially the far north and the Central Valley.

In fact, if you drive down any major highway in the Central Valley, you'll likely see several "Congress created dust bowl" signs, arguing that the California drought is a hoax intended to put hardworking farmers out of business so that they'll have to go on welfare and become Democrats.


So farmers, who are inherently on welfare because of farm subsidies, will go out of business and go on a different form of welfare?

Ooooh, but they were workingwhen they were growing and selling crops getting partially paid by the government.

As a Californian, I'm beginning to unclench. Fortunately, Larry Elder was the front-running Republican, and many people in California HATE HIM. I'm pretty sure he helped suppress Republican recall votes.

Weird; our one state is 12% of the United States population, and Caitlin Jenner probably came in like fifth place.

I did my part and voted against recall on my mail in ballot. I had had a few beers that night and so when I went to sign my ballot my signature was a bit off.

I always wondered if they chucked my ballot for being slightly off my regular signature.

wandero: Ha ha. Cram it, Elder.

Sergeant Angle: Election fraud claims in 3..2..1..

Elder had those claims ready to go yesterday. He's too Trumpy to go by actual reality.


The piece of shiat didn't merely have them ready to go.

He actually claimed, yesterday, before anything had been counted _or any statistics published_, that a "statistical analysis" had "proven fraud."

Provable lies (and that was really obviously provable) of that magnitude that represent a direct attack on the foundation of Democracy itself should be a capital offense.

Mrtraveler01: The recall probably would have had a chance if the GOP ran someone who was more moderate like Schwarzenegger.

Instead they went the Trump route and backed some hack talk show host.

As I mentioned in the other thread, I'm mostly interested in the overall turnout for the Democratic base. These numbers seem to indicate a pretty energized base, but won't know until all the ballots have been counted.

The midterms worry me.

I'm so sorry that Democrats didn't feed into your projection that a black man's mere interest in becoming governor, no matter how detestable, would automatically earn liberal support.


You mistake Alien Robot's comment. He know Dems don't fall into that line of thinking... terrible candidates that run on hate don't get their vote, be they black or white.

He just loves the chance to hint that Dems are racist. If you get mad or defensive about it, his pants go down and friction commences.

Lyger: What an absolute farking waste of $300 million.


Yep.  Newsom is up for re-election next year, which would have meant that come spring in a few months, the CA GOP could have gone on the offense.  Newsom is not reviled across the board the way Grey Davis was, but he's no Jerry Brown, either.  He could have been vulnerable to the right attack.  Maybe not successful, since most CAs are Dems, but still.  The right GOP candidate could have been a contender.

Now what?  This recall was a lopsided victory for Newsom.  The CA GOP have practically handed him next year's campaign commercials.  They're now identified as a Trump party because of their embrace of that chucklehead Elder, instead of someone more mainstream CA GOP like Faulconer.  In a diverse state like CA, why would they do something like that?

The entire central valley outside of like Sacramento is a depressing shiat show. Drive on 5 between the Bay and LA and you get to see it for yourself. Awful drive and all the towns are hick central.

Your state needs to divide itself into three states, one centered around SF, one centered around LA, and one centered around SD.

That way 12 percent of the population ends up with at least 12% of the senators, instead of 4% like right now.

I have a story about ripping apart a rotisserie chicken at a picnic in a graveyard, while watching classic movies being screened on the wall of a mausoleum -- everyone there was horrified, but they still ate the chicken -- even the guy with the weepy eye.

kelderiv: Claiming election fraud with no evidence needs to be a felony. I'd be ok with it also being considered sedition. There needs to be consequences for lying. Big ones.


You would like to throw out the First Amendment and make lying a crime. Did I understand that correctly? When Trump was in charge of the executive and directing the FBI and US Attorneys, you would have liked it if he would have determined who was lying and charge them with felonies.

Or did you mean just on the state level? Like, you think Alabama's elected officials should be able to determine who is lying and charge them with a felony. You know Juries decide what the facts of the case are, right? So you're okay with an Alabama jury deciding whether or not someone is lying about covid's existence.

I see no flaw in this plan. It's a shame this country has no history with a 'Sedition Act' that does something similar so you could just read about how that kind of thing would work out.

For non-Californians, I'll repeat what I've mentioned in other threads: Larry Elder is a known quantity in California, where he had a long-running AM talk radio show. He's an attention whoring libertarian fool who gets on TV during election seasons because "he's just so edgy." And he really doesn't think much of black people. He wasn't anonymous to us; he was and is a clown.
 
2021-09-15 12:41:18 AM  
The moment I looked it was EXACTLY 2/3rds No, 1/3 yes. That's about right. Of course the ultimate goal was to disrupt and cost California in time and money. They also sent all of those poll workers to work with the public during a pandemic for lolz. The GQP is dangerous beyond comprehension.
