From Person to Concept

What’s really funny is that back in the 1990s, the 2000s and in the early 2010s, Democrats blamed their election losses on rich donors. There was an obsession on the Left with the Wall Street and the Koch brothers of enormous proportions.

But Democrats no longer blame rich people for their election losses because rich people now support them. They have become the party of Wall Street. So what to do? They tried using Russians but Russians are of limited use because it’s hard to explain their active involvement in state and local elections.

Instead, the vague concept of “misinformation” was chosen, and it’s a great find. Misinformation is everything and nothing. It’s whatever you don’t like at any given moment. All you need to decide what’s misinformation is to proclaim yourself the (and I mean THE) source of truth.

    1. The only real “threat to democracy” is this ludicrous mail-in voting. We now have a whole day off work in Illinois. How hard is it to go vote on person? Why is any mail voting needed at all?

    2. Translation:

      “It’s going to look like y’all are winning, right up until we bring in the truckloads of extra ballots at 2am after telling the Republican poll-watchers we’re done for the night and sending them home. After that, we’ll definitely be winning.”

    Because it’s CONVENIENT — and some voters, like this grumpy old man, would just skip this election if I had to go to the trouble of driving to a polling place and then standing in line to cast my vote for the three Republican turkeys running for statewide office here in Arizona!

  2. Voting shouldn’t be “convenient”. It’s a right that was earned, not received from on high. If you can’t be arsed to get down to a polling station then you haven’t earned it, you just feel entitled to it.

    That’s cute.

    Now do “propaganda” next. 🙂
