About Me

I'm a 70 year old white woman, born in November, 1949. My parents lived through the Depression and WWII (my dad's a veteran). I've witnessed a lot of history firsthand, plus I carry the stories handed down to me by my parents, aunts and uncles from their generation, and my grandparents from their generation. Basically, my memory is a depository for most of the 20th century of U.S. history, plus the 2 decades (so far) of the 21st century.

So, why is no Democrat doing this?

Of course they would need television coverage of the speech - or it didn't happen.

But surely, there must a Democrat smart enough to strategize an opportunity for maximum media coverage?

I don't understand what Congressional Dems are up to. Why aren't they standing together as a group and loudly condemning what's happening to our country?

We get a peep here and there from Schiff, or Schumer, or one or two others - but nothing that relentlessly and non-stop pushes out a counter narrative.

I think if the Dems got noisy enough, relentlessly enough, they would get attention. They need to hammer out a constant message of human decency in contrast to the indecent and immoral behavior of the Trump administration and their GOP enablers.

Just as Steve Schmidt says:
Call this out. Call it by its name. Name the villains. Name their vile deeds. This is not an hour for small words and gestures. The moment has come to say what must be said.


Thank you, Bigtree, for posting this.

Hey man, good to see you! Thank you!

I truly think that as long as the other side is engaged in a culture war against us, we need to engage back and engage back hard.

They are wrong. They are assholes. They are bullies. They are bigots. They are liars. They should be given no quarter!

These are people who are bent on destroying the rule of law, bent on destroying empiricism, bent on destroying all vestiges of the Enlightenment.

The barbarians are at the gate. We don't need to be civil to them, we need to FIGHT them, no holds barred.

Yes, ridiculed - and also fought tooth and nail.

I'm so totally fed up with their whiney crap!

They feel like they're losing the "culture war." Well, damn right! There IS a culture war, and they are on the wrong damn side!

They reject the Enlightenment principles which infused the founding of this country. They reject science, they reject reason, they reject empirical proof, they reject the whole of the philosophical underpinnings of the Western world.

They would destroy every norm of civil behavior, destroy all the institutions built up over decades, destroy the very rule of law, in order to satisfy their lust for mocking the "elites".

I would consider them pathetic - if they had not so willfully chosen the path of ignorance, fear, and hate.
