Let's not play stupid

Addy

Rebuild With Biden!
I get sick of listening to and reading those in the right wing that are brainwashed. They are captives of jingoism-aka what the far right wing is now calling 'nationalism'. With some, they are trying to hide their believing in the 'Big lie'. They don't want to look like stooges and the only thing they have left is to continue on with it as if the sane can't see their complicity/stupidity. Humility is foreign (pun intended) to many of them.

Take for example the Trump and Fox N3wzs' leading propagandist Carlson praising fascist leaders like Brazil's Bolsonaro. And the latest, as pointed out above- Hungarian president Viktor Orbán.

It is '1984' -just decades later than Orwell predicted. But don't kid yourself- it is happening.

If you read the book, or seen the movie, you can see how the right wing feels the need to be the Though Police in their attempt to make America into a right wing dystopia- punishable with jail time in their attempt to dictate morality. See right wing states putting bounties on women that they don't want to have control of their own body's.

There is so much more with the right wing blitzkrieg (again, pun intended) of what they think America should be like using a god as their template but throwing out 'free will' if it doesn't suit them. They are weak. They allow Trump, (big brother) to dictate to them, no matter what the repercussions with lead to.

If this is allowed to continue, America is F'd!
Trump wants to control all aspects of government, that's why his schedule F plan is such a scary thought.

Great read on the link.

Trump Got Burned by a Major Mistake in His First Term. He Won’t Make It Again.
There’s a reason authoritarians target the bureaucracy. Once they have it under their control, they are better able to stifle dissent and criticism, reward friends and punish enemies, using the levers of government to maintain power. In his first term, Donald Trump largely failed to take control of the administrative state, that sprawling web of agencies that keeps the federal government running. To be sure, he ignored scientists and punished bureaucrats. But Trump’s officials largely lacked the capacity to manage the institutions they were charged with leading.

Schedule F would burn down the civil service system. It would be a government of the lawless leading the incompetent.

Trump loyalists would feel comfortable re-interpreting—or ignoring—statute and government processes to fit with their beliefs. Clean air and safety regulations might stay on the books but be rendered meaningless in practice. Government data unfavorable to the administration would be suppressed or altered. Public statements about what government actors are actually doing would become rarer and less believable. And questionable actions by the security forces to target political enemies and protect friends could become routine.



Career public employees would be forced to choose between their oath to the Constitution—in effect, their oath to serve the public—and keeping their job. They will have their loyalty questioned based on which political organizations they associated with in college, or voter registration, or social media activity. Some will not go along with the program. They will be fired. Or never join the government in the first place.

How to stop Trump’s sneak attack on the civil service


Donald Trump is planning, were he to be reelected as president, to replace vast swaths of government experts with his own army of tens of thousands of loyalists.

This is a direct threat to democracy and the rule of law. The only reason for Trump to do this is to make it easier to fire federal employees who dare to disagree with him.

Trump’s plan is about far more than ordinary political differences Republicans might have with some federal workers. Trump has shown he has no regard for the law when it threatens his power. He pressured his own vice president to overturn a presidential election. Now, if he gets a second term, he would seek the power to fire federal employees who won’t do his bidding.

Some of the things you listed are lies. Bottom line, Jan 6 was a LEGAL protest that got out of hand because Nancy Pelosi turned down the National Guard, and ANTIFA led the incursion. Only ONE person died. (a LEGAL protestor)


Meanwhile, the BLM riots your side of the aisle approved of injured TWO THOUSAND police officers and KILLED TWENTY FIVE.

Jan 6 was a picnic compared to the carnage from YOUR side of the aisle.
Attacking Congress (the purpose of the 1/6 protest against the peaceful transfer of power to the election winner) is actually illegal. There is NO indication that the people who attacked Congress at Trump’s direction and with his documented support were “Antifa.” Pelosi has no jurisdiction over the National Guard, and the claim that Trump offered to have National Guard presence that day has been exposed as a flat-out lie.

Even Jane Hathaway chortled from time to time. This one seems to see the humor in precisely northing, while running around rating every serious post he disagrees with "funny.".
He’s an idiot. Whenever I hop into this forum, my alerts are loaded up with Middleview emojis. Between that giggly teenaged girl habit and his endless Trumpjacking of all posts, he’s barely worth a mention. Obviously, even his friends and family have written him off - much like Bugsy’s - because he is ALWAYS here.

Toadies gonna toad.

You’d think Mr. Drysdale would keep Hathaway busier…

What have you and @Raoul_Luke contributed to the OP?

Nothing.

You're a troll full of insults, as always.

I rate unserious posts from you to be funny....because I'm laughing at you...not with you.

"Serious posts" are not your forte.

This is what you find funny?

Think about what? Whether or not you really are "stupid?"
