There’s the piece of advice that all of us have been looking for when dealing with all these Trumpettes! Just don’t argue with them in the first place. They really do believe the lies and they are NOT going to listen to you.
Another quip that comes to mind about this sort of situation is one that has been variously attributed to Plato?, Ann Rule (maybe), Roy Durstine (umm), and various others. It also has variations on the theme. Basically, it’s this: Don’t confuse me with your facts, I’ve already made my mind up. Damned, if they don’t mean that, too. Their minds are etched in stone like the carving on Stone Mountain. If you want to change THAT, you better be bringing a lot of plastic explosives. You’re gonna need it. This folks are serious. In a way, you have to admire their dedication to their cause, but they are really going to be put out when they find out exactly how wrong they were. It’s going to go badly for them.
But for us, nice people that we are, it is so difficult to stop “being nice” and yet that is exactly what we need to do and must do. They are NOT going to play by the “rules”. They try to insist that it is our responsibility to do so, and give great big dramatic demonstrations when they think people will think that they might seem to be used and abused, e.g. the FBI search of Mar-A-Largo which was perfectly legal, well within the scope of the agency, and had been forewarned of by repeated requests for the documents found. All of which makes the pearl clutching, fainting-couch histrionics, and speechmaking seem more ludicrous than a three-year-old’s tantrum for ice cream.
Do not fall for it and do not allow others to fall for it. We’ve had enough of this already. Government is no place for daycare. It is for adults. Let’s elect people who can act like adults and discuss matters calmly and effectively. I’m sick of the lies and the histrionics. I am sick of the fascist policies. Let’s get back to democracy and the will of the people instead of the decisions of the elitists like Trump, Kemp, Perdue, Loeffler, Burt Jones, Drew Ferguson, and all the rest. Let’s elect Democrats like Stacey Abrams who comes from poverty and knows how WE live, Raphael Warnock who grew up in the Savannah projects, and me-I grew up riding my granddaddy’s plow mule. Let’s put REAL people in our government who know our challenges.
Share this if you agree. We have to stay mad enough to get people to the polls in November. Then we have to stay mad enough to get them there in 2024. Can you do it? I can. Join me. Support my campaign.
