The following is my opinion based on my own observations, nothing more.

DON’T MISUNDERSTAND… it’s not the Nazi flag waving, Confederate flag toting, “Mein Kampf” quoting, …
2. …maga cult members that have me concerned and confused. I see them coming from a mile away. Their undying loyalty to trump is based on hatred of the same people. Coupled with their almost pathological need to blame some outside force/person/group,

🧵1. #ResistanceUnited #ProudBlue #DemVoice1 #ProudBlueEditorials WITH ALL THE ANGER AIMED AT @JoeBiden REGARDING THE ISRAELI/HAMAS WAR…I’ve realized something. Apparently there is some confusion about exactly what powers the POTUS has over other countries. So clarification:
2. As the title implies, the POTUS is the President of the United States. And only the United States.

I know that we had a previous occupier of that office who had some believing he was omnipotent over the entire planet but, that was simply a megalomaniac’s fantasy.

I DON’T GIVE A FLYIN FU€K HOW OLD JOE BIDEN IS… if he’s breathing, he’s getting my vote!
If you’re thinking of voting for a 3rd-Party candidate, or if you’re thinking of pulling a “Susan Sarandon”…
… 2 … by voting for trump, or thinking about not voting at all… Wait… I’m gonna stop myself right here. If you’re thinking about anything other than voting for Biden, then you’re not THINKING at all. You’re using your emotions to make the decision for you.

When he called soldiers who fought & died for our country “losers” and “suckers”,
2. …the “Patriot” that you are, doubled-down on your support.

More recently, when he used phrases found in “Mein Kampf”, and verbiage that would’ve made Joseph Goebbels proud, to describe his political opponents… you remained steadfast in your loyalty.

DEAR GOP… what happened to you? Did somebody hurt you? Did your best friend steal your girlfriend? When you were a kid, did your parents give you a toy but forgot that the batteries weren’t included?
2. What was it? What turned you from a Party that cared about those less fortunate…into the Party that couldn’t care less?

WHAT IS THE DOLLAR AMOUNT?…is there a figure you could amass? A number in your portfolio that would allow you to say, “OK, I’m good”? That would free you to look outward instead of always focusing on you?

IF YOU’RE A NEO-NAZI OR MAGA, KEEP SCROLLING… there is nothing you’re going to want to hear, much less agree with, in this 🧵.

The rhetoric coming from trump has done something I didn’t think was possible,
2. … it has reached a fever pitch not heard in 90 years. Just a few days ago, he referred to his political opponents as “vermin” and vowed to “root them out”, in a speech, so dangerous, and filled with such vitriol it brought me up short.

SO THE STRATEGY NOW SEEMS THE BE, “THROW IT ALL AGAINST THE WALL AND SEE WHAT STICKS”… first it was No Labels, then RFK Jr, then Dean Phillips, and now perhaps Manchin.
2. They are sparing no expense to try to come up with a way to siphon votes away from Biden. But so far, all they’ve been able to create, are more options for disgruntled GOP voters who are sick of trump.

The fact that these are their “candidates”, just proves…

ENOUGH OF YOUR FAUX PATRIOTISM…you refer to our Military as “woke”. On this day, of all days, you refer to a “real military” that hates Joe Biden.
Image 2. I can only assume that by “real military”, you mean your weekend warrior “militias”.

You idolize a man who never served, who referred to those who fought & died for our Country as “losers & suckers”.

Image 2 I know that, technically, tomorrow is Veteran’s Day, but I feel that your utter contempt for our Military is not just a slap in the face to those currently serving but also to those who came before. And that deserves 2 days of vile recognition.

AFTER NIKKI HALEY’S WORD SALAD ON ABORTION…in the debate last night. And Tim Scott changing his “total ban” stance to a “15 week ban”, remember this:
GOP strategists saw the results from Tuesday’ elections.
2. Between now & the 2024 elections, the GOP will change their messaging. They know that their draconian ideas on women’s reproductive rights. Do not align with their constituents.

Let’s review: the Christo-Fascist wing of the GOP wanted Roe overturned.

A HEALTHY POLITICAL PARTY…after what happened last night in OH, VA, & KY… a healthy Party would pause, and take stock of the direction in which they were heading.

But, the GOP is not healthy.
2. And they haven’t been in quite a while.

So, instead of taking this moment to reevaluate their “we have no platform, we don’t want to govern, we prefer to create chaos”.

Instead of realizing that this path, they’re on leads to nowhere.

DEAR GOP… I am a Democrat. I have always been a Democrat. I’m not a “libtard”, I’m not a Communist, and I am not a “groomer”.

I’m a proud member of the Democratic Party.
2. I do not want to take away your guns. I own a gun. I want sensible gun laws, as does 80% of the Country. And I want weapons of war where they belong, in the hands of our Military.

I am a Patriot, as defined by our Founders.

A COMPLETELY UNSOLICITED OPINION…I am not a lawyer, but here goes.
As multiple states begin to bring their cases to court, regarding trumps eligibility to run for president based on the 14th amendment,
2. A REMINDER: it is not a requirement that he be convicted of Insurrection or Rebellion in a court of law or Congress, in order for the states to win their challenges. That’s a good thing but, it doesn’t make the cases any easier to win.

I need to tell you something:
People have had it with you.
They’re done.
They want nothing to do with you any longer, and here’s why: They see your hypocrisy, your inconsistency, your incredibly selective mercy, and your thinly veiled supremacy.

Yes, there’s a lot at stake in 2024. Absolutely, we can’t take voting for granted.

The new SOH has been widely quoted as saying that, if every woman would bring able-bodied workers into the world we wouldn’t have to cut Social Security and Medicare.

First of all… eww
2. Second… if you made the top 1% and corporations pay their fair share in taxes, you’d accomplish the same thing.

Third… the use of the term “able-bodied” is, concerning. And it makes me wonder what your plans would be for the ones born not so “able-bodied”.

The cowardice shown by the GOP, on a daily basis, is breathtaking. How can anyone expect a Party, that can’t even stand up to the extremist minority faction in their own Party,
