We Are At Peak Politics Of Personality
Regardless of all of it, they will not let him back in. This is just a sideshow but ultimately, it’s been decided--uncle Joe or whomever they replace him with. I hate to sound so disheartened about it, but I think we should be realistic and start planning on how we are going to proceed.
They didn’t want him to win in 2020 but they didn’t think he could. So they lobbed softball insults at him (Orange skin, small hands, he’s Hitler!) and figured that was enough. After living through the shock of their lives they are wide awake now and nothing is off the table. Does anyone really think Fauci’s prediction of a pandemic during Trump’s term was a coincidence? Really? Do you? Because if you think declaring a pandemic 9mos before what would’ve been an easy Trump victory given the fantastic job and economic gains Americans experienced during his administration then, Wow, are you naive. But wait there’s more! Do you think all the off-the-chart social unrest was coincidental too? Chaz/Chop? Antifa? BLM? Lincoln Project? Toppling statues and destroying cities. Racism galore. All just happened to coincide with the covid panic porn. But, nothing to see here, right? I’m sure Soros’s Open Society money had nothing to do with the paid rioters, right? Now, the next election is coming and Trump is still scaring them. Again, nothing is off the table. Pandemic 2.0, throwing him in prison, or worse. When will people wake up? Democrats are filthy scum communist authoritarians. Get it? I know..I know. Republicans aren’t much better. But, by and large, at the end of the day they are a little better. And if “a little better” is my only current option I’ll fucking take it.
I wish Kennedy had coverage and was “the movement” on the Democratic side because he knows how to articulate the specific problems and offers solutions. Kennedy is reasonable and rational and not interested in inflammatory remarks to drive sentiment, feelings and sentiments don’t pay the bills and solve problems. I’m so weary of politics that simply point out the negatives and character assassinations, I want to hear what the candidates see as a problem and what is their solution, even if I disagree at least it provokes critical thinking and pragmatic solutions. The media is in control and it’s very frustrating. Thankful for your substack and other alternatives but how will “Joe the plumber” ever learn about other candidates without the media bias?
