So what's the bad thing?

-I'm Stacy Abrams, and I approve of this message.

I always wondered what a tweet from a guy wearing a klan hood would look like.

Dumb farkers don't seem to know that woke just means "I learned something today."  Learning frightens these people.

The opposite of woke is asleep, which they think is better.

If they learn too much they stop voting R. Education is the greatest single threat to the GOP.

He farking well ought to be terrified. She nearly beat him last time, and probably would have had he not been GA's Secretary of State and therefore in control of where the voting machines went.

Oh no! Woke! Don't be woke!

Stay asleep! STAY ASLEEP! STAY ASLEEP!!!

Get em !

And hopefully the rest of the Democratic Party will be shamelessly copying her grass roots skills.
 
2021-12-01 10:14:11 PM  
In a follow-up tweet, he mentions she's uppity and doesn't know her place, probably.


/Is you, or is you ain't my constituency?
 
2021-12-01 10:37:22 PM  
Wow, she'd be able to have the school shut and the lesson plan be implemented.

That's someone with a plan to get things done.
 
2021-12-01 10:38:19 PM  
She's going to lose, after Georgia's Republican legislature passed all those anti-voting laws.

This is the Republican playbook. We saw it work in Virginia. Kemp just has to belt out the GOP's greatest hits. "Woke!" "Communism!" "CRT!" "Oooga Booga!"

That'll get the white conservatives to get off their ass and vote, because they'll be scared shiatless that "those people" will be forcing CRT on their kids and indoctrinate them to become woke.

Combine that with the new voter suppression laws that Georgia signed into law after the 2020 election that unfairly targets black voters, and Kemp can squeak out a victory.

Not saying I want him to win, or anything. But it's a strategy that has a good chance of winning.
 
2021-12-01 10:44:53 PM  
"They're coming for your children, and they're going to say being white is evil," just worked in Virginia. Sure as hell can work in Georgia. Joke all you want, he'll win on that message. (And with shenanigans. Don't forget the shenanigans.)
 
2021-12-01 10:45:12 PM  
Scared of what? Democrats don't have the huevos to campaign. Republicans will just mention A) CRT or B) gun control and Dems will sit on their thumbs and not counter....and there go the A) sympathetic housewives/mothers and B) white swing voters.

You mean those on Fark saying that Democrats need to say "Communism!!!" "CRT" "DEFUND THE POLICE!!" is the way to win red state whites are wrong?

I'm almost 50. I feel like the stupid Architect from the Matrix sequel.

"We have done this many times before."

We've seen it play out that same way, over and over - decade after decade. The specific magic words change a little, but it's really just the same shiat for the same reasons every time in the end.

How amazing for a nation that has no racism - you know, except for them racist BLM and antifas - that essentially the same reactionary racism with new labels keeps selling so well to essentially the same crowd. Almost like the new code words are just that - code words.

The farkers.

Just as Neil Gaiman suggested replacing the term "political correctness" with the term "treating people with respect" I find it is often helpful to translate "woke politics" to "civil rights"

To be fair, in Virginia he was up against a neoliberal slice of undertoasted white bread who sent out mailers that made a better case for the other guy than the other guy made, himself.

I feel like Abrams isn't going to shy away from dismantling racist lies.

Though I should have stopped at "Brian Kemp".

So I checked out some of the replies and one of Kemp's defenders is this fine specimen of rationality who makes ASMR Conspiracy videos for YouTube.  Why is that even a thing?

That's a good point. Stacy Abrams is going to be a formidable opponent, but I think it's really going to come down to how effective Georgia Republicans were at suppressing the black vote vs. Stacy Abrams ability to get out the vote. I'm going to be watching the Georgia gubernatorial race with a lot of interest.
 
2021-12-01 10:58:01 PM  
It would be nice but rn they're trying to rig it so they can replace election officials at the county level, giving them the ability to control how elections are carried out across the board. Only the most naive could honestly believe they're going through all this effort to obtain all this power to swing elections to just not use it. So long as nothing is passed at the federal level to ensure free and fair elections red states are going to turn into a bunch of mini Moscow's.

She's lost it before, so there's that.
But voters have already proven they'll vote for a 'better' candidate if the message is right.
This would be a huge win and she'll need help from a talented campaign manager and staff...which the Democratic Co. have yet to field.

From a following tweet of his:
"Her far-left agenda of open borders..."

Open borders with whom, exactly? She's running for governor of Georgia, which last time I checked already had open borders with all of its neighbors. Are people sneaking in via the ocean? Or is he suggesting they build a wall to keep out Floridians?

I wasn't questioning why the gator was on Mars, it has its reasons. I was more confused that Conspiracy ASMR videos existed. The dulcet tones of crazy to lull yourself to sleep every night? How do you even compete with that?
