You've heard that the January 6 coup-plotters weren't really that violent (despite what we all saw on TV!) because they "didn't bring guns"? Oh yes they did bring guns to their little coup attempt! That finding jibes with the testimony of DC police, who say their gun recovery units were "working constantly" during the coup attempt, and it also jibes with the testimony of DC rioters, who say there were a lot more folks bearing arms than police have yet found. And again, we all saw what happened on TV. We have no reason to listen to right-wing politicians who themselves enabled by the coup attempt. If they didn't actually take part in it, that is.
Thank God for good Americans like Steven Rosenfeld, who describes at length how right-wingers plunge forward even though their treasured Arizona fraudit didn't tell them exactly what they wanted to hear -- and also dissects all the weasel words in their arguments! Ballots that might have come from inaccurate addresses, ballots that might have come from moved-away voters, or video purporting to show election employees who might have erased computer election records -- I've tried to highlight this to right-wing voter fraud screechers, and they just ignore me. They probably jerk off over provoking me into pointing it out to them, too. Little do they know I don't aim to convince them, but to convince other, more reasonable people who might be listening in. Anyway, I sure hope they wipe their screens off when they're done.
Our Postal Service has begun to slow down deliveries per Postmaster General DeJoy's "bold" plan, and the Postal Regulatory Commission slams it, saying it won't even achieve its own goals by the end of 2022 and that (of course!) it didn't take into account the effect the plan would have on customers (i.e., the American people), particularly those who rely on the mail to get their medicine. Of course, the plan makes sense when you realize that Postmaster General DeJoy's purpose is to destroy the Postal Service so his cronies can privatize it. And I wouldn't be too keen on the idea that President Biden might be waiting until good Americans can't get their life-saving drugs on time to finally sack Mr. DeJoy -- if you know a problem is coming, you have a duty, as a leader, to solve it before it hurts anyone.
When I hear that Wisconsin Republicans want to ban words like "diversity" and "white supremacist" in public schools, all I can say is waaaaaaaaaaah! Diaper-loaded brats, these Republicans, imagining that teachers and students can't handle complex ideas about race relations, in a nation with a long, long history of white supremacy, no less! And here you thought conservatives trusted people. Maybe conservatives still do -- but these reactionaries who call themselves "conservative" certainly don't. They'd rather a real fascist like Donald Trump told everyone what to do and say and think. That's so much easier than working to maintain a civilization, after all.
Ho hum, right-wing asshole admits to pretending to be a Black Lives Matter supporter as he shot up a Minneapolis police station. I said over a year ago that a lot of these "rioters" were actually right-wing agents provocateurs, and I was right! I wonder if this Ivan Harrison Hunter fellow knows the asshole whose buddy filmed him busting up windows at the AutoZone last year, which kick-started riots in Minneapolis. If he doesn't, I bet Facebook can bring them together. Even in jail!
Finally, Sen. Joe Manchin (D?-WV) says he "never knew about" the strategy to pass two spending bills that Democrats have been pursuing for months. Never mind that documentary evidence shows him talking about the two-track strategy in June -- the two-track strategy only exists in the first place because he insisted that infrastructure legislation be "bipartisan" and because Republicans would block most of the Democrats' agenda without reconciliation. Don't think he's dumb, or old, or tired, or just misheard the question -- he's gaslighting you, just like they all do when they can't win the arguments on the merits.
