Really? Gore conceded when there was no more he could do legally. This "stolen election" business is dumb and dangerous because it whips up Trump's mentally unstable and low IQ followers to resort to violence and chaos.

What Gore did was put the country before himself. YES, "allowing" Bush to win caused death and destruction... it did. BUT, it at least didn't call into question our Democracy and we moved on as a country.

In retrospect, it was just a harbinger of our future... The Republicans have known that their only chance to gain and keep power is to carefully limit who can vote to those that vote for them. They have been working on that for decades and now it is coming to its natural conclusion.

People like Hawley, Blackburn, Cruz, and all these douchebags are selected for their total fealty to Project Mayhem. And they are elected to destroy our Democracy with thunderous applause.

People like Hawley, Blackburn and Cruz will be right at the side of whatever dictator they install, helping to put to death or imprison any citizens who aren't 'American' enough for them (which means anyone not male and white or any non-Republican).

Mussolini, Pol Pot, Stalin and Hitler would have loved them.

They're coming for you Josh.

They have you phone records, texts and hours of video of you supporting the insurrection for starters!

And that's just the cards they've shown you.

Getting closer now.

Prime time hearings.

Sedition charges.

Loss of your position and felony jail time.

Lots to look forward to in 2022.

Yes, I remember all of the Democrats who refused to concede in 2016, or all of down ticket Democratic candidates who lost in 2020 who refused to stand down.

This incendiary language is dangerous for the country. Intelligent folks like Hawley know what they're doing when they say it, they're hoping for malleable people like Cesar Sayoc to latch on and solve their problems for them.
 
2022-01-21 8:43:46 AM  
Gonna need a bigger screen for all that projection.

Anyone remember an old Weird Al song?

A 2000" TV at the then standard 4:3 ratio would have a screen 100 feet tall and 133 feet wide, which is slightly larger than the Darling Harbour IMAX in Sydney, the world's largest IMAX theatre, which was 97 feet tall and 117 feet, 2 inches wide before a refurbishment that started in 2016 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020. At today's 16:9 ratio it would be 81 feet, 8½ inches tall and 145 feet, 3⅙ inches wide.

"Our democracy is strong," concluded Hawley. "[T]he American people are strong and in charge, and their votes are the ones that count. Their voices are the ones that matter. And to try to delegitimize those ahead of time, to try to say that whatever decision the American people come to in November is illegitimate because you don't think you're going to like the outcome of it, boy, that is playing with fire. And that's exactly what the Democrats are doing."

when you recall McConnells recent press conference what he says becomes cyrstal clear

It's the same old saw brought out by numerous authoritarian and dictatorial governments throughout history.  The Republicans are now openly showing the American public who they are and what they stand for.  And it's certainly not for what the country was founded on.

AurizenDarkstar: Mussolini, Pol Pot, Stalin and Hitler would have loved them.


The thing about those guys? They just TOOK power. Quickly and easily with might. Often under the guise of economic hardship and their promise to "fix things".

I think it is far more nefarious to do so over the course of 40-50 years as the GOP has been gradually doing. We've been watching this progress over the course of our lives. They've nibbled away at it, here and there and everywhere. Inside, outside, upside down.

Now comes the coup de grâce.

Unless, by some miracle we get everyone who voted out to the polls in 2022 that came out in 2020 and even more in some areas, then it's over. The financial markets are already in pre-crash mode and it's signaling a massive economic downturn on the horizon. That is the cover they will use to put everything in place and consolidate their total domination.

Hitler and his posse would be awed by how this is going and they would be cheering it on because it will only usher in the end of American dominance on the world stage. It was already going to happen, this will just speed it up and we will all suffer for it.

Tales from the gym: Again?!  He did that a few months ago too.  I had to hop off the elliptical and explain the irony to the planet fitness person behind the desk.  And explain the irony of playing that in front of  "judgement free zone" and "no critics" signs.   ...And then explain who our senators were.


They then took down most of the televisions on the half of the gym I use.  I don't know if it was because of that, especially since Fox News still plays on one of the few still up.  They don't even play CNN now to be Fair and Balanced™

Heck, Obama wouldn't even ride with Trump in the limo or talk to him in January 2017.
Oh wait, he did.
But Trump gracefully called Biden to concede and is now performing critical humanitarian and diplomatic missions to help people.
Oh wait, he's not.  He's lying, grifting, and trying to overthrow the government.
Jimmy Carter has publicly called #45 an illegitimate POTUS.  I tend to agree.
And when did Rudy Giuliani become an  absurd traitor caricature of Tony Clifton?
I think both he and #45 should share a small confined, locked space for say 50 years.

The gym near me only ever has the news on during the "silver sneakers" period when the old folks are in.
Outside of that, they pretty much are 100% on ESPN/sports networks. Smart move on their part.

I checked out of a hotel that had a giant TV in the lobby set to Fox news, after one night.  Also the hotel that shall remain nameless (the Radisson in Camp Hill, PA) had beds of a vintage that made me decide that my 20 year-old mattress still had some life left in it.  It took several launderings to get the black mold smell out of my clothes.  If you're looking to stay there they went back to the old name, from when they purchased the mattresses, The Penn Harris.

You see when if Democrats find evidence of Republican election tampering (2hich Republicans are clearly planning to do) that would make them just like the 1/6 scallywags so both sides are the same.

Why would he have a sense of irony or self awareness?
Here's what you guys aren't getting about the coup supporters - they sincerely believe Trump DID win the election.  Maybe Josh Hawley knows the whole thing was a scheme to overturn a legal election but the people he's talking to believe the exact opposite.

Trump followers --> Republicans
Mentally unstable --> assholes"
Low IQ --> idiot

Their entire sense of justice is "if they can do it why can't we?"

That goes for dropping n-bombs or disputing elections.

So the way to manipulate them is to accuse the Dems of doing what you're doing.

Then they feel like it's justified and the other side started it.

Works every time.

Uh, the Nazis didn't appear out of the blue and end up in control of the German government. They were elected and appointed into power multiple times.

I got into it a bit with a couple of idiots after the 2016 election when they insisted that conservatives had accepted Obama's victory with dignity and grace. You know, like the Tea Party, Mitch McConnell inserting his head so far up his own ass that he turned himself inside out, the endless quest for the Muslim birth certificate, etc had just never happened.

The starting point is "libs bad". The logical extension is "only libs bad". The final forms are "bad thing" = "libs did it" and "bad thing that libs obviously didn't do" = "never happened and/or was good thing".

The 2020 vote counts were legitimate. R's thinking anything else are just butt hurt they were outsmarted pre-election. But don't pretend the Left hasn't done the same.

"Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump an 'illegitimate president'"
