Identity politics are a huge tactic for the Democratic party. They govern using fear and the MSM. I actually think Biden wanted to give unity a chance but that was squashed quickly. We saw how they are going to govern yesterday when Biden and Harris gave a horrible divisive speech. I hate to break it to you but even before this they had no intention of working with the republicans. Until Pelosi, Schumer and other people like Harris are not calling the shots nothing of any substance will get done. We will see a good stimulus because we need it desperately but after that sadly it will be gridlock.
Socialism is a lie and uses fear and is the tactic of the GOP. The GOP just uses dishonorable liars and media personalities that enjoy outright lying and gaslighting for money. They blame others for isuses. No Personal responsibility at all for the GOP. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Fox News, OAN, Rush Limbaugh, Radio, they all use lies to sell out this country to people too uneducated to think for themselves. your attacks against people that have NOT been calling the shots shows just how brainwashed the Trump Cult has become.
GOP Fear Strategy
- the Socialism Attack (except for Gov't Socialist programs for the wealthy and favored military contractors)
- Societal scares of dangerous dark minorities coming to suburbs (you heard trump say himself)
- Select Societal Voter Suppression (it actually works and is actively in play)
DEM Fear Strategy
- A head on addressing on America's centuries old racial disparagement (Republicans hear that 'playing the race card as they don't believe in redress of built-in Systemic Racism, they believe it does not exist.
- Education/Medical care for all - GOP sees that as bad thing - easy solution, pass it based on a permanent opt out for those who dislike it.
- Socialism, AOC...but they have problem at all of their hero who is subservient to commie (Putin) and repressive regimes
"before this they had no intention of working with the republicans."
Well ALL the Dem expectations of decent behavior/goodwill to/from GOP was met with buckets of cold piss.
...the GOP has made their position clear 'NO' on anything DEMs propose, so yeah 'fuck 'em. Fuck 'em right back as they've done endlessly and in your face.
As for this fuss about Trump attending or not, the Inauguration, surely the wrong question.
How about 'why is someone who committed an obvious and deliberate act of sedition still walking around?'
US justice? Don't make me laugh, the whole world is thinking the same, except for the delighted titters in Moscow, Bejing, ISIS camps.
It's a short list who made on that day of utter shame, direct calls to sedition, mad Rudi, Trump Jr the even more stupid are the first two of several.
Up to 20 years would deal with Trump and Rudi, a fraction of it most likely, Don Jr would come out 'different', no soft soap holiday prison either, the same places those insurrectionists arrested will end up. Only fair.
Or you could make the same mistake as letting Nixon walk, however his actions were piddling compared to Trump.
Maybe the real warning is from Wiemar Germany and the light sentence and general sympathy shown to another insurrectionist.
We all saw and heard what we happened, it was even threatened by the should be perps, so the political Flat Earthers on here can try and deflect, say up is down, all they like, they know it too.
But having backed the man that stink is hard to shift.
Because it makes you culpable too, I mean he hardly ever hid his behavior, brittle ego, racism, incompetence, contempt for the office and constitution, right from the start.
One thing you cannot say, you weren't warned.
