Parting Gift: Gullible White Male Voters (and helping hand for those who feel hurt)

VT: The war is over. Anyone who recognizes a cheater, and every American man should, feels deep inside that supporting Trump was so very wrong. Try the video. It may help. Those of us who aren’t gullible, and you only get that way by being gullible and wising up…

A Large Portion of the Electorate Chose the Sociopath
America will have to contend with that fact.

The Atlantic: The moment every Donald Trump opponent has been waiting for is at hand: Joe Biden seems to be taking the lead. So why am I not happy?

I am certainly relieved. A Biden victory would be an infinitely better result than a Trump win. If Trump were to maintain power, our child-king would be unfettered by bothersome laws and institutions. The United States would begin its last days as a democracy, finally stepping over the ledge into authoritarianism.

A win for Biden would forestall that terrible possibility.

But no matter how this election concludes, America is now a different country. Nearly half of the voters have seen Trump in all of his splendor—his infantile tirades, his disastrous and lethal policies, his contempt for democracy in all its forms—and they decided that they wanted more of it. His voters can no longer hide behind excuses about the corruption of Hillary Clinton or their willingness to take a chance on an unproven political novice. They cannot feign ignorance about how Trump would rule. They know, and they have embraced him.

David Frum: The American system is broken

Sadly, the voters who said in 2016 that they chose Trump because they thought he was “just like them” turned out to be right. Now, by picking him again, those voters are showing that they are just like him: angry, spoiled, racially resentful, aggrieved, and willing to die rather than ever admit that they were wrong.  read more…

  1. Even after 15 years of Trump and his BS, I tuned in last night before most states were counted and listened to his and Pence’s speech, and it struck me how magnetic he is. he forms a thread and brands it, with something memorable to form an imprint on peoples minds. sales.
    I do not personally fault those who fall for his BS, I fault those who know he is full of shit, and go along for the ride to grab the scraps. McConnell and Graham know more than anyone, and they lapped it up and said, oh hell yes, and grabbed everything they could. The smallest of small men. I might even say, smaller than Trump himself. And that is pretty small.

  2. I circulated this Don Winslow’s video all around the world a few times.

    Please don’t mention David Frum. He’s the sob who coined the phrase Axis of Evil for Iran when Iran was offering to help topple the Taliban. He hates Iran with passion.

  3. You can play up the divide, and in four years, with built-up resentment, like a bad marriage, we’ll be swinging the other way again, or you can take the high road and try for reconciliation.
