Hopefully it kills more Republicans than Democrats.

Orange Hitler: bringer of mass death and economic collapse.

Even the most intelligent of people can be groomed but these mopes can't even put one and one together and make it add up to less than three.

...and then they feel insulted when anyone refers to them as fucking morons.

That's just their excuse for feeling insulted. They want to feel insulted, which is why they act like morons. Then they gaslight.

...and invariably suffering from a deep-seated feeling of inferiority.

They feel excluded from the trajectory on which free society was going. so they opted for crash and burn instead.

Fascism is subversive.

"He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting."

The politics of hatred.

Fascists are punitive.

This level of ignorance is frightening. Even Trump wasn't telling you mopes that Hydroxychloroquine offered magical immunity from contracting the disease.

Have you thought about the possibility that your fellow mopes rushing to emulate your Dear Leader could cause a shortage of Hydroxychloroquine for those who actually benefit from taking the drug? Of course you haven't.

...but if accounts of shortages do start appearing then they'll only repeated in the 'fake news,' in the 'lame stream media.' It will all be 'liberals lies' a democrat conspiracy designed to bring down Trump.

...but if those 'liberal lies' turn out to be the truth and there is an actual shortage then it will be Obama or Clinton or the Deep State's fault.

The one person you won't blame for causing your wife's inability to ease the pain caused by her arthritis will be Trump.

Cult followers will be cult followers.

He's a lying again.

Lying: the one and only "conservative" value.

Such esteemed, award winning sources. How many journalism awards can they claim? You’re an idiot. An old biddy watering rose bushes and on Medicare.

Hose Queen.

Don't ask, we really don't want to know.

You’re a bigoted dolt. Stick to your filthy, disgusting porn. In fact, I’ll wager you head straight for porn sites after logging out here. Wonderful way to spend your golden years. 60 years old going on 13. A real credit to the navy.

Authoritarians never recover.

My father vehemently opposed me going into the military. Not that I ever aspired to go into the military, but he served his 4 years during the Korean War and his take away was that it was about carrying out orders from really, really stupid people. If the "military minds" like Shit Hook and Poseurver are any indication, my father was absolutely correct.

You still trying to tell people that this virus is no more dangerous than the common cold?  :-*

That was a couple of months ago.

She's cycled through a few dozen lies since then. Right now they seem fixated on "obamagate" even though that too is going nowhere.

The lies flow fast with Caroline, including the lie that she doesn't lie.

Lying: the one and only "conservative" value.

I asked you why you were having to pretend something that just isn't true. Why felt the need to do that?


Lying: the one and only "conservative" value.

All we have as human beings is logic and reason.

Logic and reason takes effort and skill. Authoritarians have neither the skill nor the volition to entertain logic or reason.

Politics / The Modern GOP Is Built On Lies

After the Senate’s vote to keep Donald Trump from the Oval Office, House Judiciary Committee chair Jerrold Nadler told The New Yorker, “It never occurred to me that an American political party would degrade itself to an authoritarian political party where anything goes, no matter what…. I never thought an American political party could get as bad as now, where they completely don’t care how bad the crimes are.”

Nadler should have been paying more attention. Like him, many liberals, moderates, and of course, never-Trumpers continue to invest themselves in a narrative that posits that a once patriotic party dedicated to conservative principles and the rule of law was just recently corrupted by its fealty to the lies, lawlessness, and racism of its pathological president. Unfortunately, that’s a fiction. Yes, Trump is the most openly dishonest person ever to occupy the White House. But as far as modern Republicans go, he is, in some ways, the most honest. He says and does in public what Republican presidents have been doing in secret for more than half a century.

Many of us are shocked by the brazenness with which Trump and company sought to enlist foreign powers—Russia in 2016, Ukraine this past summer—to undermine our democracy to help with his campaign. But this is basically what Richard Nixon did in 1968. Armed with Henry Kissinger’s secret leaks from the Paris peace talks, Nixon urged South Vietnam, through a surrogate, to refuse any peace offerings negotiated by Lyndon Johnson’s administration because he would give the country a better deal if he was elected president. (He didn’t.) Johnson knew this in real time but, like Barack Obama regarding Trump and the Russians, decided to keep quiet about it. And so Nixon won, and American soldiers and the Vietnamese paid the price.

Later, Nixon behaved with similar cynicism, putting on hold his plan to withdraw all US troops from Vietnam until 1972. Kissinger, Nixon’s national security adviser, had told him, “If any bad results follow, they will be too late to affect the election.” The president needed, as Kissinger explained to Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin, “a fairly reasonable interval” between the United States pulling out its troops and the North Vietnamese marching into Saigon. As presidential biographer Robert Dallek noted, Kissinger “had nothing to say about the American lives that would be lost in the service of Nixon’s reelection” or about the American prisoners of war who would continue their needless suffering if the administration prolonged the war. Nixon, meanwhile, bragged of the “brilliant game we are playing,” as “Henry really bamboozled the bastards.”

Over Mother’s Day and then through Monday—and who knows, perhaps continuing today—Trump has fired off hundreds of rounds of weapons-grade lunacy on Twitter. When Trump does this kind of thing, many are ready with an explanation: He’s rallying his base; he’s distracting his critics; he’s challenging the existence of reality itself.

But these explanations miss the point. Trump horribly and uniquely bungled the coronavirus crisis. The human result is mass death and Great Depression–scale unemployment. The political result is that while leaders in Britain and almost everywhere else in the democratic world have been boosted by a surge in public support and approval, Trump has not. The governors who have clashed with Trump have seen their poll numbers rise; New York Governor Andrew Cuomo may now be the most popular politician in the country. Governors who support Trump, like Florida’s Ron DeSantis and Georgia’s Brian Kemp, have seen their numbers tumble.

Trump trails Joe Biden in national polls by at least five points, as he has done all year. Trump is even lagging behind in swing-state polls. He is down by three points in Florida, five in North Carolina, and seven in Pennsylvania and Michigan. An internal Republican National Committee poll of the 16 least-decided states shows Trump behind in virtually all of them—so much so that he seems likely to drag the Republican Senate majority down with him, The Washington Post reported.

Trump’s psychology is defined by his terror of rejection. The most stinging insult in his vast vocabulary of disdain is loser. And yet every poll, every powerful Biden TV ad, forces Trump to contemplate that he is headed toward a historic humiliation. He’ll stand with Jimmy Carter and Herbert Hoover, the incumbents rejected because they failed to manage economic crises.

Trump failed to prevent the crisis. Out of envy and spite, he dismantled the pandemic-warning apparatus his predecessors had bequeathed him.

Trump failed to manage the crisis. At every turn, he gave priority to the short-term management of the stock market instead.

Trump failed to message the crisis. He not only lacks empathy; he despises empathy.

Angry, scared, and aggrieved by the lack of praise for his efforts, Trump turns for safety to television, where his two-dimensional friends explain how everything is everybody else’s fault. They tell him that he is right and all his critics are wrong. They promise that miracle drugs will—poof!—make all his troubles vanish without effort. Sean and Tucker and Laura and Jeanine and the Fox & Friends romper room tell him stories that hold the terror at bay.
