^^what does concrete planning from "the other side" look like? do you really think these rednecks are capable of anything more than embarrassing themselves?

do you just feel like you have catching up to do? compared to rednecks who have wanted a civil war for years?

what happens to all this stuff if republicans simply win 22 and 24 in landslides?

Another atlantic article that came up and has a lot of truth, especially for former conservatives.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2022/01/brooks-true-conservatism-dead-fox-news-voter-suppression/620853/?utm_source=feed

There is a lot of history and theory at the top, so for a quick read start 3/4s down.

Quote :
"The reasons conservatism devolved into Trumpism are many. First, race. Conservatism makes sense only when it is trying to preserve social conditions that are basically healthy. America’s racial arrangements are fundamentally unjust. To be conservative on racial matters is a moral crime. American conservatives never wrapped their mind around this. "




Quote :
"The Trumpian cause is held together by hatred of the Other. Because Trumpians live in a state of perpetual war, they need to continually invent existential foes—critical race theory, nongendered bathrooms, out-of-control immigration. They need to treat half the country, metropolitan America, as a moral cancer, and view the cultural and demographic changes of the past 50 years as an alien invasion. Yet pluralism is one of America’s oldest traditions; to conserve America, you have to love pluralism. As long as the warrior ethos dominates the GOP, brutality will be admired over benevolence, propaganda over discourse, confrontation over conservatism, dehumanization over dignity."

To me, it’s not really about logic and planning as much as it is thousands of people simply breaking things across the board with no real way to fix them, and the more they break, the more they blame an invisible enemy and lash out. And the people who have been trying to keep thing running are real fucking tired and constantly terrorized. And again, no one is ever held accountable.

Quote :
"...
Alongside students and a prominent right-wing anti-critical race theory activist, DeSantis on Wednesday introduced the Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act. In a pre-released statement, DeSantis referred to the right’s new bogeyman against anti-racism as “state-sanctioned racism.”

During a press conference later, DeSantis took his rhetoric a step further: He referenced the most visible hero of the civil rights movement who worked against actual state-sanctioned racism, including in Florida.

"You think about what MLK stood for,” DeSantis said. “He said he didn't want people judged on the color of their skin but on the content of their character.”

Remember when he Ted Cruz called Donald Trump a "sniveling coward"?

Well, it looks like three fingers were pointing back at him!

Man that is hilarious given that Tucker himselfs takes liberty with definitions when he uses terms like patriot, socialist, nazi, etc all the time.

Hell he even takes liberties with what "Western Culture" is supposed to mean.

Tucker Carlson always has the same dumb and puzzled face in the split screen.
