A Bit of Wisdom from 1796 Proving Past is Definitely Prologue

"The spirit of party serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another." ~ George Washington

    The tribalism of factions was written about extensively by our founding fathers.
    Factionalism can easily become cultish, with blatant lies and misinformation.
    CNN had a montage of Fox notables spewing lies and disinformation about the Corona virus, especially the meme of the loss of liberty brought on with epidemic mitigation measures such as masks, and lock downs.
    Fox is the outlet for dump, the denier in chief.

    Other countries that have addressed the epidemic with their citizens the most important issue , have had few cases and deaths from Covid. Compared to the ignoring of an obvious epidemic. dump and his profiteering pals have 211,000 deaths in America mostly from their belief in - their libertarian profiteering faction .

Trump has been dog -whistling these white terrorists since the day he announced he was running.

He didn’t denounce them at the debate, and didn’t denounce them for trying to overthrow the government and attack the police. He didn’t denounce this kidnapping plot. He called the neo-nazis in Charlottesville good people. He’s tear gassed peaceful protesters speaking out for racial equality. It goes on and on.

At this point, if you support trump, then you must admit you think white people are special and better than everyone else, and should have more authority and power than non-whites.

That’s racism and white supremacy. White supremacy is an authoritarian, fascist destructive poison.

Your hate is ugly, but you are not stuck with it. Change isn’t easy, but letting down all that hatred will feel good. I wish you the best on your journey.

Were you surprised and heart broken when Hillary lost the 2016 election?
Are you hoping Biden and Harris win this year? Enough to wager your life savings? If you're gonna go to Nevada to make that bet, be prepared to lose. Did you know the mainstream media when asking the public who they will cast their sacred vote for, they ask 29% more Democrats than Republicans? Did you, did you know that? Did you actually think mainstream media, like your leaders like Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Waters, Harris, Clinton's were honest people?
So just letting you know if and when your bubble burst. I know you'll just cry your racist, bigoted, tiny, .cold as ice, alleged hearts out.

    I’m sure Donald is going to lose. I would bet everything on it. I’m sorry, but you’re finally going to understand how we felt when Donald won. You should emotionally prepare for the shock.

    But then get over it, because the new administration actually has plans to improve the economy, control the virus, and bring the country together. *scary!*

      2016 Stolen Election
      Posted on: 2020-10-10 17:25:16   By: Anonymous
      dump did not win.
      We got an illegitimate head of state from voter purges, and vot tewrminal hacking in crucial Black precincts in crucial states Mi, Wi, Pa.
      In those states only in Black precincts the terminals did not record a choice for president, they did show choices for all other voting. dump "won" by low margins in these battleground states.
