the electorate is never wrong

ogmor, Wednesday, 8 April 2020 22:32 (five months ago) link

I'm not concerned about Trump getting more votes than Biden, he almost certainly won't, but I do worry that the Supreme Court basically gave the GOP permission to disenfranchise large amounts of voters and throw away absentee ballots. I know a lotta people don't take Trump saying stuff like "vote by mail is illegitimate" seriously but lets see what happens if/when he actually loses

i do. i don't know why others don't. he's saying the quiet part out loud, when a more competent GOP person would just litigate it and let the GOP-selected judges do the work of disenfranchising voters. that's what they'll do under trump, too, but he's doing us the favor of yelling out his intentions so they can at least be critiqued (and hopefully counteracted).

the good news is that even though voters will (once again) be disenfranchised, we're starting from an even better margin the time that h clinton lost by negative 3 million votes. and it's not due to biden being good or inspirational. he 's standing in for the steaming pile of shit in the well-worn phrase "i'd vote for a steaming pile of shit before i'd vote for donald fucking trump".

well the fact that "the president doesn't have a functioning brain" is now normalized is probably a point in favor of Biden now, sadly. by and large this is just what we've always known, most voters don't care about racism, corruption, lying, dead people in foreign countries, etc. etc...but once they start losing their jobs and having people they know die as a direct result of the President's incompetence, things might change. murdering 1,500,000 brown people on false pretenses didn't hurt GWB. the financial crisis and Katrina did.

i'm excerpting this from TPM "Prime", where i am co-founder and co-treasurer. but it hits on a lot of recent anxieties, for me at least.

after briefly recounting the recent (insane) stuff from Caputo, the HHS comms chief /trump stooges, he writes:

...Caputo comes to Trump’s world as a longtime associate of Roger Stone. Stone himself is on the air calling on Trump to defy electoral defeat, declare martial law and order the mass arrests of political opponents like the Clintons and Obamas. He justifies this with baseless claims of widespread voter fraud by Democrats. Mark Levin, onetime legal commentator and now full time reactionary, is pushing the President to “use the Insurrection Act” to put down ‘insurrections’ in the country’s big cities. Levin adds that Trump needs to be ready to fire the top brass and appointees at the Pentagon when they resist his order to unleash US military troops on US civilians.

A consistent theme in all these threats and predictions is how the mix of protests, occasional looting and general civil unrest of recent months and the purported need to restore order by force morphs into post election scenarios in which the election must be decided by a resort to arms.

Seeded through all of this are increasingly histrionic and nonsensical claims of murderous violence that Republicans are allegedly responding to. In Caputo’s rant he claims that a “resistance unit” of politicized CDC scientists was plotting to murder him. This is nonsense but nonsense with a concrete purpose – it makes murderous responses sound reasonable, justified, logical.

We should note that the President himself has gotten into this. Over the weekend in an interview with Fox’s Jeanine Pirro, Pirro falsely claimed that Democrats were threatening mass rioting if they lose the election (another bogus claim now repeatedly asserted in the Fox News universe). She asked what the President would do about it.

“We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do that, if we want,” Trump said. “Look, it’s called insurrection. We just send in, and we do it very easy. I mean, it’s very easy. I’d rather not do that because there’s no reason for it, but if we had to, we’d do that and put it down within minutes.”

The comments are often treated by the mainstream press as bizarre digressions by the President or random comments. But you can see from these other statements that they’re not random at all. Pirro’s question and Trump’s answer both emerge out of this drumbeat from Trump’s most aggressive supporters that the election will need to be settled by force and particularly by the President calling out the US military and declaring something like martial law.

Let me be clear as a gut check on this. I don’t think any of this stuff is going to happen. I’m not predicting. I don’t think it’s likely for many different reasons. But when we are talking about looking back in six months, we should be very aware now that the President’s most aggressive and potentially violent supporters – in interplay with the President himself – are already laying the argumentative groundwork for such an outcome – a series of justifications, an argument that the opposition started it and made it necessary, a series of purportedly legal mechanisms for what amounts to a post-election putsch against the government itself.

i guess when your daily tv diet is tucker carlson and hannity, levin seems like just another pro-trump option. but that guy is fucking insane, and it is creepy as hell to hear Trump say “Look, it’s called insurrection.

“We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do that, if we want,” Trump said. “Look, it’s called insurrection. We just send in, and we do it very easy. I mean, it’s very easy. I’d rather not do that because there’s no reason for it, but if we had to, we’d do that and put it down within minutes.”

Trump could be talking about curing covid, trade with China, war with Iran ... basically for him fixing any problem is "very easy," and can be done "very quickly." If you have a bunch of hammers, and those hammers are nuclear weapons, and you are a moron that doesn't know how things work, then everything is a nail that you can just nuke and be done with.

Yeah, the Biden campaign hasn't been doing any door-to-door operations, though I wouldn't think that would necessarily obviate the need for field offices. There's a lot of virtual campaigning going on, though--for instance, Pod Save America has an "Adopt a State" program, where you can sign up to make phone calls to voters in battleground states.
