Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions.
Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new, wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.
This, of course, is how the Democrats see things. President Trump’s call for enforcing the rule of law and quelling the Blacks’ riots is seen by Dems as racist. In their hate-filled, oikophobic minds, anything short of fueling the fires of Black Rage is racist.
This, my fellow Americans, is what it looks like when hate wins. This, my fellow Americans, is what we must wage war against. This, my fellow Americans, is the Democrat party, their supporters, and the sorts who are likely Dem voters.
Ah yes, Creep Uncle “Bad Hands” Joe is going to unite the country, a trite shibboleth of the modern Democrats. Of course, he means – if he’s at all aware of his surroundings at this point – that such unity would be solely the Democrats and likely Democrats being united in their mad hate for President Trump, any and all who refuse to revile him, and normative Americans.
Then, uniting his constituency in hatred for our President and all of us who support him is Biden’s best shot for getting elected. Even if he’s too far gone at this point to know that, his handlers aren’t.
Ignoring the usual Leftist screeds, President Trump isn’t wrong about the risks to our nation posed by the Democrats’ desperate bid to have mass absentee voting for the 2020 elections. It’s an idea tailor made for rampant voter fraud and other “shenanigans,” such as “losing” boxes of ballots.
Here’s the thing, the Left is correct in saying that actual voter fraud is extremely rare but … most of it is involved with absentee voting, something that is, itself normally extremely rare in the context of national elections.
And then, there’s the US Postal Service (USPS), which probably couldn’t properly handle delivering and picking up all those 10’s of millions of ballots, and who couldn’t truly be trusted to do so properly due to their current political views. After all, in a crisis of resources, one tends to favor those whom one feels are of value over others.
Essentially, the Dems are pushing for this because they know that having a national vote-by-mail/absentee voting election they can break the system and send us down a similar path to the 2000 Hanging Chad debacle but on a national scale. It’s their attempt to either change to outcome of the election or, failing that, make its results as “illegitimate” as possible in the minds of the populace. The latter, honestly, being what I find to be a more likely motive.
Creepy Uncle Joe Biden is not a good Presidential candidate, he’s just the “best” one those who control the Democrat party could field at this time. In more normative times, he wouldn’t even be considered a credible threat to President Trump’s 2nd term in office. But these aren’t normative times.
Bide has one, singular hope for the 2020 elections, the deranged, immoral Leftists, and other ilk who’s hate for President Trump and everyone who supports him outweighs any other fact or consideration.
And this isn’t an utterly vain hope, as The Nation’s Katha Pollitt proves.
I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important. Four more years of Trump will replace what remains of our democracy with unchecked rule by kleptocrats, fascists, religious fanatics, gun nuts, and know-nothings. The environment? Education? Public health? The rights of voters, workers, immigrants, people of color, and yes, women? Forget them. And not just for the next four years: A Trump victory will lock down the courts for decades. I cannot believe that a rational person can grasp the disaster that is Donald Trump and withhold their support from Biden because of Tara Reade.
Yeah, not only does Pollitt not care whether or not Biden is a rapist, but she also wouldn’t care if he boiled and ate babies. She’d still vote for him because she hates and fears President Trump and the American people that much.
It’s always sad when someone sole hope for success is other people’s madness and hate, but it’s worse when it’s the singular hope of Presidential candidate. But, in these times and with the likely Democrat voters being what they are, it’s not a vain hope. It might just work for Biden.
