Election 2020 THREAD.

What legitimizes American government is wut is now truly in dispute. Many are understandably in denial about this. But there’s a reason that deepest & longest disputes over contentious last 4yrs haven’t really been abt policy. Nor is the ongoing election.
Clinton & Obama, even before Trump took office, shot their shots at legitimacy of election (Russia). Ever since, drumbeats have gotten louder even as particular angles change. Now some openly claim Biden shld not concede even if Trump wins. The narrative way has been prepared.
Further, due to legal changes to the electoral process there is virtually no chance that the election will be decided on election night. It will take weeks—at least—to count the mail-in ballot vote and there will be hundreds of lawsuits. Believe them when they tell you this.
Meanwhile, every lefty group in the nation has been coordinating/ planning mass protests & civil unrest for election night & after (far beyond even what Antifa-BLM folks have accomplished thus far).
Republican leaders, predictably, have done a poor job of highlighting or even addressing any of this. But what emerges from the palantir is a rocky few months sudden acceleration of events beyond anything we have seen thus far.
The protesters long planned “siege” of DC will start later this month, and then from Election Day through January the rollercoaster will plunge down the first big dip in the track now set before us.

What is the American right doing to prepare for what is coming, and head of off?
“Now is the time for Americans to make it known we won’t let our country be treated this way.

Republican leaders who love America more than they fear the ruling class will do the same.”

I know @jack & @Twitter don’t care when people they disagree w/politically are threatened, but here’s a pleasant Berkeley PhD/@berggrueninst thinktank VP declaring that my friend & colleague Michael Anton deserves to be *executed*. Lib Privilege. Rest of us wld be fired & banned.
These are very, very sick, dangerously arrogant people.

"I am anti-fascist. And that's why I say my political opponents deserve DEATH BY FIRING SQUAD."

But they say & increasingly *do* whatever they want w/impunity b/c they've tacit support of those ruling the public square.
How many privileged elites now spew hate-filled and increasingly violent rhetoric with impunity, even as their soldiers in the streets increasingly get violent and threatening for real, while the rest of us get banned for saying things like "men can't be women"?

Trump’s gotta decide which woman will be offered up on the altar to the demons of our time.
One can’t know beforehand what they will do, exactly, to the nominee & their family & friends except that they will forever destroy their reputation in front of the nation, and half of the nation will believe them. The real selection process is now the last minute psy-op ordeal.
The right has never done this to a nominee, one notes. Yet, anyway. Not even close—not even with legit oppo research. In fact, it’s wild how for 60 years of basically losing the Supreme Court, I’ve never heard of a serious court packing plan from the Right—

No, this = the overflowing of human love, the activation of human potential, the reality of human flourishing, & the only way to save & maintain our planet & species. And this guy and all who agree with him have minds too darkened to lead even their own selves. Hollow death cult.
Assuming all else checks out, such a woman should receive the equivalent of the Medal of Honor and be greatly respected by all citizens. As it is, people in 2020 will only vomit bile at this beautiful picture.
If real, this woman & her family represent heroic virtue, health, vitality, hope, and the fulfillment of most of our natural aspirations. Because this pic reflects the beauty of robust/naturally fulfilled human nature, the soul-sick will shriek at the image with frenzied hatred.

The idea that "whiteness" is evil is so moronic it's easy to laugh off. But this is really & truly being ingrained into the way in which many see the world—& even themselves. A lot of dangerous ideas are dumber than a box of rocks. But a complete idiot can kill you with a rock.
Professional, polite American society keeps shrugging off racialist ideology, making excuses for it while calling anyone who resists it a racist. But it's not going stop unless we call it what it is. It's a cancer that'll kill America if left unchecked and untreated.
This is what they are teaching your kids in school—racialism: the idea that all human beings are fundamentally divided and different in essence based on their race—& whiteness is evil, just like America. And we’ve slowly grown used to Jim Crow in reverse, sanctioned by HR & law.

“How do you do, fellow Hispanics.”*
“Unless you don’t vote for me. Hispanics are not hispanic and blacks are not blacks if they don’t vote for me.”
Why do Democrat politicians speak to blacks and Latinos like they are alien/extraterrestrial children that they are quietly scared of?

Instead of sensible fire control plan in accord w/nature that wld solve the problem, we learn from our shamans that the climate gods are angry w/all of us. All have sinned & fallen short. And nature is angry. The only way out is to expiate our sins by doing whatever they tell us
