It Might Be Too Late, But...

It would be great to hear prominent Dems like Jaime Harrison give a prebuttal to the 2020 election loser's appearance at the Florida klan rally on Sunday. With so much hype around the speech, few if any people are focusing on the important fact that whatever the future inmate has to say, it will be a reminder of how a majority of Americans find him repulsive. This fraud lost the election because he was incapable of speaking to the issues that face real Americans.

-His response to the COVID crisis was a complete failure.
-His concern through the economic catastrophe of 2020 was his own bottom line.
-He brought the U.S. trade deficit to an all-time high.
-He exploded the federal debt.
-He bankrupted American farmers
-He thought empathy was a sign of weakness.
-He lied with unmatchable fluency.
-He promoted debunked conspiracy theories.
-He refused a peaceful transition of power.
-He instigated the first attack on the U.S. Capitol since the War of 1812.

If a goal of the Democratic Party is to destroy "Trumpism," then let's take away his oxygen before he can even speak. Let's head him off at the pass, as they used to say in old Westerns. Let's make him irrelevant before we get to the point where we wished we had done more sooner. Chances are he will be the author of his own destruction, but let's not wait for that.

1. What, precisely, do you propose that we do?

We canít abridge the 1st Amendment. We canít prevent him from speaking. What do you propose?

2. ??? It's not about preventing him from speaking

It's about the DNC and other Dem Party players developing a robust messaging mechanism that takes advantage of big gop moments. Instead of perhaps waiting for Trump's bombastic return to daylight to respond to him, respond to him with a message of his failures before he hits the stage.

5. The DNC should recruit you.

Our learning curve in messaging is pretty flat, but I've noticed SOME progress under President Biden. Major initiatives would be 1. getting out ahead of an event or message or 2. watering down the message with a simultaneous event as you suggested. You really have to hit people over the head with your narrative or else there is no narrative at all.

6. Why is there a high profile conservative conference every year, but not a liberal one?

Democrats need to get serious about better messaging. There are enough smart Democrats who could come up with some emotional points that could be delivered consistently and strike an emotion chord with all voters.

At least that's what I would do if I were head of the DNC.

7. A kindred voice

Is so refreshing to hear.

I think for a long time liberals were too afraid of sounding liberal. It's why a Democrat couldn't praise the Affordable Care Act without saying prefacing with "It's not perfect, but..." WHY START WITH THAT? WHY SAY IT AT ALL? Good messaging isn't rocket science. It just takes the mindset that you know you are better than the competition and you can outclass them at every turn. I guess liberals are still learning how to be liberal AND proud. Wake me up when we get there.
