Forums :: America Fan Blog :: OT: Very Touchy Subject...The Election Results Thus Far


Poster: GirlFromOz
Hi KoG, Apologies to the owners of this blog who may not want it to include political content. So, I’ll call it early…for Biden 😊 There is no need for you to package up all the America memorabilia you have offered to send to me. I would never want you to sacrifice it. Clearly Trump’s strategy is directed at the 2024 campaign. He wants his supporters to believe the 2020 election was stolen from him. He is not interested in what he can do for his country. He only cares for himself. His actions should be taken very seriously because they are a threat to democracy. He wants to disenfranchise thousands of voters, most of them in Black communities. If Trump wanted to be a leader, why is he not out there, leading? Your statement about more people attending Trump rallies is correct but does not indicate wider support for him nationally. Biden held rallies where attendance was deliberately limited because of the risk of contracting coronavirus. I think this is far more responsible than encouraging thousands of people to attend rallies where they are not wearing masks and not social distancing. Trump’s disregard for the health of his supporters and staff is disgraceful. When he became ill with coronavirus, he was lucky that he received treatment that is simply not available to any other US citizen. Look at the current infection and death statistics to see how irresponsible this attitude is. Then there’s Rudy Giuliani and his wild QAnon conspiracies. I watched the video you linked. And the subsequent press conference where he and others repeated the bizarre claims he made in the video. Food trucks! No evidence provided because there isn’t any. That’s where the fraud really is. I cannot understand the motivations of these people. What a waste of time. Dominion is an American company that has no connection to Venezuela. Chavez is long dead. Embarrassing. I read some of the ‘evidence’ of voter fraud. One I particularly liked was from a witness who noticed that votes from the military that she/he saw counted were heavily for Biden. This apparently was suspicious (fraudulent?) because this person believed that the military usually votes conservative. The fact that Trump calls soldiers who died fighting for his country ‘losers’ may have had something to do with this trend to Biden. The video of Biden that you linked was a few seconds taken from a longer statement where he was talking about preventing voter suppression (classic cherry picking). He clearly misspoke. If you watch the entire statement you will see this. Biden has been ridiculed for his speech impediment (including by Trump himself). What message does that send to all people with disabilities? That they are open to ridicule? There are many resources available that go into detailed debunking of misinformation and conspiracy theories. Problem is that repetition of a falsehood can morph it into a ‘fact’. It’s a well-known rhetorical tactic. Unfortunately, the internet has enabled peddlers of misinformation to flourish and convince people that what they say is true. It is the path to fascism. Voltaire: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities” Hope the Biden years are good for you and all Americans. Cheers, Jude
