Default Re: Republicans suck

“ Texas Governor Greg Abbott has ordered the removal of mail-in ballot drop-off locations across the state, limiting to just one drop-off point per county.

The order, effective on 2 October, also requires that voting clerks allow poll watchers to observe ballot delivery.”

The GOP hates democracy. I know that sounds like hyperbole, but here they are again working to disenfranchise voters.

And all of this was made possible by a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling Shelby v Holder where the conservative court eviscerated the voting rights act of 64.

For 40 years, it had protected minority voters in the south.

RBG said it was like throwing away an umbrella in a storm because you aren’t wet.

Several states, immediately started suppressing minorities.

This stopped preclearance requirements.

Fuck Abbott and Fuck the GOP

Totally screams confidence in GOP popularity in TX, amirite.

This thrad just reminded me of something I wrote in 2012:

Romney has a chance, and this is a critical time for the GOP: it's probably the last presidential election where the party is old and white enough to maybe plausibly put it over the top. If it doesn't win now, the party may have to try to accommodate people who are not white, and it isn't very good at that.

I can't decide which is scarier: the prospect of the Republicans succeeding, or the prospect of the GOP dividing into big-tent and fascist factions. That's already happened to some extent, but the party has at least managed to stay together and reign in the noisier fascist wing to support a mediocre candidate, if only because he is the white man in the race. What happens when that party structure breaks down, and the most hateful are no longer constrained by party elders with some connection to pragmatism and reality? It's one thing to cynically manipulate cultural issues to appeal to the basest fears of the electorate; it's another thing to actually believe in the screed. Those are the scary people.
Now I know what happens!

Default Re: Republicans suck

Ted Zodiac Killer Cruz's bullshit-filled crapfest on why the Republicans are totally justified ramming a SCOTUS nomination through the Senate 45 days before an election and after Americans have already started casting votes in said election.

His argument against giving Merrick Garland a fair hearing because "the American people voted for a Republican Senate to be a legislative check on the Obama-Biden administration" in 2014 might hold water if Americans elected then entire Senate in a single election, but we don't so, bullshit. Citing yourself as the historian of record to support your own argument, also bullshit (see: masturbation). He argument also rests on the claim that "American voters picked Trump over Clinton" but they fucking DIDN'T -- the Electoral College picked Trump, the voters picked Clinton, so bullshit. Shilling for your recent book every other sentence, is also bullshit. And the argument "why filling the vacancy left by Justice Ginsburg [immediately] is so important...]because] this presidential election could come down to the court" is bullshit since Scalia's seat sat open from February 13, 2016 until April 10, 2017 and was left open THROUGH AN ELECTION because Cruz, Moscow Mitch & co. left it open, so BULLSHIT.

I am sure there is more bullshit in there but I can't even.

Two right-wing operatives with a history of spreading hoaxes and misinformation have been charged in allegedly attempting to suppress the vote in Michigan using robocalls, state Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) announced Thursday.

Nessel’s office charged Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman with one count each of voter intimidation, conspiracy to commit an election law violation, using a computer to intimidate voters and using a computer to commit conspiracy.

The attorney general’s office said the two targeted voters in heavily Democratic urban areas such as Detroit with robocalls attempting to dissuade residents from voting in the November election.
election fraud shitstains catch a charge.

If I thought they were that smart, I'd guess that the secret Republican reelection strategy is "Cognitive Dissonance."

Trailer park tenants say landlord sends note implying a vote for Biden is a vote for increased rent

Quote:
The landlord of a trailer park in Fort Morgan allegedly sent a note to residents warning rent would most likely double in price if Joe Biden becomes president.

9NEWS received several emails from Fort Morgan residents concerned about the legality of the letter, calling it a form of voter suppression.

The Colorado Secretary of State’s office confirmed they have received a complaint, and told 9NEWS they passed it along to the Attorney General.
