Everyone who isn’t a sissy-ass faggot agrees that the Trump-Biden debate on Tuesday night was the greatest thing that has ever happened.
But if you run across someone who tries to question that fact, just point them to the fact that the Democrats are freaking the heck out and saying that they’re really concerned for Republicans.
Let’s check on them, shall we?
The aftermath of the first presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden triggered a reckoning among Republicans on Wednesday about the incumbent’s incendiary remarks on white supremacy and his baseless claims of electoral fraud, with GOP officials privately expressing alarm about the fallout with key voters as the president’s allies argued that he electrified his core supporters.
Biden, who launched a train tour through the battlegrounds of Ohio and Pennsylvania, continued to pitch himself as a champion of working-class voters and saw Democrats rally around what they view as Trump’s threat to American democracy.
But few Republicans voiced outrage in the wake of Trump’s norm-shattering spectacle in Cleveland on Tuesday, including his statement that the extremist Proud Boys, a male-only far-right group known for street violence, should “stand back and stand by.” Responses ranged from silence to muted criticism, reflecting how the GOP remains convinced that an alliance with Trump and his voters is crucial for its survival.
But hewing too close to him is also seen as a mistake by some Republicans, particularly for those who wish to court moderates and independent voters.
“There was fault on both sides,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who is facing a tough reelection contest, told reporters on Wednesday. “The interrupting on both sides, the name-calling was very unbecoming for a presidential debate.”
Asked if it was a mistake for Trump not to condemn the Proud Boys and white supremacists, Collins said, “Absolutely.”
Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the lone Black Republican in the Senate, said he believed Trump “misspoke” and “should correct it.”
“If he doesn’t correct it, I guess he didn’t misspeak,” Scott said.
I hate Tim Scott so much.
I don’t hate him because he’s black. He can’t help that. I hate him because he is “the black guy” who goes around tone-policing the GOP and openly pushing race politics. Every single time, the media goes to him, saying “Trump is a racist, how do you feel about that?” and his answer is always “he better not be…”
It is possible for a black to be conservative. It’s rare, but it’s possible. The thing here is: in order to be a Republican, he has to basically have a white identity. Not as in that he acts like a white person, but as in that he prefers white culture, and wants to live in a society that is defined by whites.
Tim Scott is basically no better than Candace Owens, in that he’s taking advantage of a conservative desire not to be called racist and getting a higher status position in society than he could doing something else.
But the issue is: Candace Owens is actually fine in that she pushes talking points that aren’t offensive. She would respond to this by saying, “Proud Boys aren’t racists” and if they actually were racists, she would say, “well, they’re entitled to that opinion.”
Tim Scott literally wants to push the full Democrat race agenda on the GOP, just without the riots and so on.
Point being: of course he’s the one who is going to be interviewed by WaPo for this concern piece.
They found a few others.
Former senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a Trump critic who stays in touch with former colleagues, said the private alarm in Senate GOP circles “is palpable.”
“People are voting already, so they know it’s going to be tough to put forward a new narrative,” Flake said. “They’re more than a little worried because it feels like even if you go in a different direction, it’d be too little, too late. That’s devastating.”
We’re going in the direction of the Rushmore Doctrine, which is an agenda to save America from invasive elements by blotting them out completely.
Imagine WaPo imagining that Republican think Jeff Flake, the man who single-handedly created the Kavanaugh crisis, is an important player?
They also used fake “anonymous sources.”
One veteran Republican Senate strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are working on a Senate campaign, said, “We’re all kind of prepared to be responsible for our own performances and our own words. You’re not going to see anybody say it was a bad performance, but they’ll consider it like Trump’s really crazy tweets. They’ll say, ‘That’s not my kind of campaign, didn’t really see it.’ ”
The strategist added that several campaigns are already deliberating on how to address Proud Boys questions at upcoming Senate debates and are trying to figure out how to deflect the issue and shift to more favorable topics.
How about you don’t be a bunch of faggots?
The leader of the Proud Boys is literally a black guy.
The media hates them and calls them “white supremacists” because they fight Antifa, and they support Donald Trump. That’s all. This is not an offensive group. They are literally normie Republicans.
When Gavin McInnes resigned in fear from the organization, he gave a speech on YouTube in front of a picture of a member of the Proud Boys who is literally married to a coal black negress.
Maybe when Senators are asked about the Proud Boys, they should pull out that picture?
At the Capitol on Wednesday, where Senate Republicans are working swiftly to confirm Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, reactions ranged from venting about the debate to sidestepping challenges to Trump.
“It was awful,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) told reporters, while Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) offered a descriptive expletive.
Why are Lisa Murkowski and Ben Sasse in the Senate as Republicans?
This is what I keep telling you people. We have to organize, we have to get them out.
Assuming Trump remains in office, everything has to be about engaging the primary process in 2022, and getting these pieces of shit out of office. This needs to be the agenda of Revolver News, Alex Jones, Nick Fuentes, National File, and every other entity involved in the America First right-wing.
No one likes them. It will be easy to get them out. We just need to engage the process, find the candidates running against them, then organize people on the ground to go door-to-door.
These people can be run out just by citing their statements on the coronavirus lockdown, which by 2022, will be seen as literally the worst thing that ever happened in all of history.
“I was actually watching the Yankees,” said Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.). When asked if he was disturbed by Trump’s response to the Proud Boys question, Rounds said, “He should have been very clear,” whether talking about “far-left” groups or “far-right” groups.
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), who is in a difficult reelection race, said of Trump’s handling of the Proud Boys question: “I’ll leave it to the president. I know he’s not racist. I’m sure he doesn’t approve of their activities.”
How is it possible that everyone is refusing to address the elephant in the room, and say the fact that fighting against Antifa does not make you a “white supremacist”?
How is no one able to see that Joe Biden is not asked to denounce Black Lives Matter and Antifa, groups that are burning down cities and killing cops, but it is an outright demand that Trump denounce a group that tries to protect property from these attacks?
It’s not like these people can’t figure it out – Trump is out there saying it!
All they have to do is back Trump up!
WaPo quotes him in this same article!
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Trump answered questions about white supremacy with calls on Biden to denounce leftist activists who have disrupted major cities.
“Joe Biden has to say something about antifa. It’s not a philosophy. These are people that hit people over the head with baseball bats,” Trump said, referring to loosely organized anti-fascist groups.
The article then goes on to quote Biden and some Democrats, while saying the format of the debate needs to change in the future so Trump doesn’t dominate Biden so badly. They want a mute button. (I think Trump should refuse if they propose a mute button, that’s just crazy.)
It is really an extreme example of fake news, the way they are able to go through and get all of these quotes and make it look like the entire GOP is denouncing Trump’s debate performance, when in reality, 90% of Trump supporters who watched it thought it was the greatest thing they’d ever seen.
The article ends with this:
Moving ahead, leading Republicans and Trump advisers are expected to encourage the president to let Biden talk more in future debates, hoping the former vice president will make a mistake or take unpopular policy positions, according to several officials and lawmakers involved in the discussions.
“Joe Biden’s greatest liability is his own mind and his own mouth. Tuesday night he didn’t have to use either,” said Josh Holmes, a Republican adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
I think it’s fine if he lets Joe speak more next time. He’s already proved the point.
But even if he doesn’t let him speak, he needs to press him hard on the points:
- Is he going to pack the court?
- Will he end the filibuster?
- Does he support Antifa?
That is my big piece of advice.
I’m gonna write an article before the next debate laying it out.
It’s hilarious to me that before this debate, I wrote about what I wanted him to do in the debate, and it’s almost like he read my piece and did exactly what I said.
I’m not deluded enough to think that happened. But just in case, I’m going to lay out my strategy again.
