who the fuck do conservatives think they are that when they win, they win...when we win, they win?

They manipulate and cheat when they win elections - they tend to take advantage of the small population states, rural votes, and no longer can win popular vote - as well as goodness knows what.

We win by a landslide - and they just project their behavior onto Democrats - and claim victory?

Take a big step back and just think about how incredibly, totally fucked up this is.

I am starting to hear from friends - one a veteran, one a long time friend, neither of them remotely conspiracy types - that are truly visioning the end of our Democracy.

I've resisted this - hope that the norms hold, that SOME republicans will get their head screwed back on...

But...who or what is behind this insanity?

And if - IF - I repeat if - somehow the orange asshole wrests this election away from its rightful winner and maintains power, it is hard to imagine what will happen - what should happen, really - is the part of the country that still has its senses ready for the implication? Ready to become active and take a stand?

I confess I just can't go there yet. But we've still got two MONTHS of goodness knows what to ensure given that January 20 will be a much happier day (my birthday - that is a present I am craving - Joe Biden as our president)

payment, to me, set the stage for even worse behavior.

7. They're at war and they think they're right and they think god is on their side

They think democrats are (somehow) so evil that anything they do to prevent us from advancing our agenda is morally justified.

After all, what's a stealing and election compared to "murdering unborn babies" or "promoting the sin of homosexuality"

They can't fathom that their god might actually want a democrat in charge. They think their good should give them all the toys they want.

16. And THIS. I know this as a fact, sadly, from a younger

brother. He has said, and actually written exactly that to me.

23. Yes, I must agree..

Demon Democrats.. I've see it over and over. I was listening to a historian who said the hatred and demonization reminded him not so much of Nazi Germany, but of Rwanda.

8. Their rhetoric about "liberals" and "socialism" tracks,

is eerily reminiscent of, 1930’s Nazi party propaganda.

27. Beto O'Rourke spoke about fascist rhetoric several times last year

"President Trump, perhaps inspired by Goebbels and the propagandists of the Third Reich, seems to employ this tactic that the bigger the lie, the more obscene the injustice, the more dizzying the pace of this bizarre behavior, the less likely we are to be able to do something about it."
— Beto O’Rourke

14. I am very surprised that any who are informed enough to be here now are surprised.

I've watched these goons for 40yrs. Nothing today is off the trail they've been on all along.

I can't believe the schoolyard bully is still taking my lunch! Doesn't he know I'm hungry?

OMG WTF We need an investigation. Subpoena these people, make them lie to everyone on TV.

Don't look now, but I suspect they are using bad judgement when they pick their judges.

This water I'm in seems to be getting hotter and hotter.
