You're correct about that.

The joke is that some people don't understand that.
You're correct about that. So in frustration and desperation, they attack the messenger while ignoring the facts that do not comport with the narrative to which many are emotionally attached and invested.

Fact of the matter is, BS will not be our party's nominee. The AA/POC voters are not with him (as we've seen so clearly) and without that support, he may as well go home. There can be no denying that AA/POC voters will be very important in choosing our party's nominee.

I mean... just consider this: BS can't even get AA/POC voters to attend a BS rally held at a BLACK church in a MAJORITY BLACK city.

Of course, I'm referring to his rally in North Charleston, SC not long ago. It had so LITTLE ethnic diversity that it looked like he could have been somewhere Vermont. In fact, based on the statistics, the demographics at that rally was even whiter than Vermont.

It's obvious that the AA and POC community are rejecting BS and the BS campaign. BS just doesn't connect with that community. The BS message just isn't resonating.

All I'm saying is, with such a humiliating rejection by the AA and POC communities, and without their vote, BS doesn't stand a chance. Everyone knows it.

These fundraising numbers are not the same as actual votes (which he cannot muster) and without them, he won't be our party's nominee. That's all I'm saying.

You are correct about that. Excellent description...

You are correct about that. Excellent description... it may ruffle some feathers but it's entirely factual. He doesn't have the temperament or demeanor that's needed to be the Leader of the Free World. Speech-making at college-town rallies is not the same as leading... nor is it a good yardstick to determine if someone possesses the qualities needed for leading a nation.

Nobody is saying that. But the candidates are making it very clear what their priorities are...

Because he does not like gay people? C'mon.
Nobody is saying that. But the candidates are making it very clear what their priorities are, and they are being given multiple opportunities to do so. These are fair observations, not accusations.

This is ridiculous. He was helping LGBTQ long long ago in his state.
It saddens me to see any politician with a perfunctory attitude about these things. I hate it when it's treated as just one more thing on a long "to-do" list... something to "get it over with" so that he (or she) won't have to bother with it again for as long as possible.

And even then, after it's done once, or said once, the politician and his (or her) followers can always point to that ONE TIME that he (or she) did, or said something in support of said-group.

Maybe it is all the bad things he says about gay people? WTF?
At this critical juncture, I think that it will be a mistake for any candidate to shun (or "not have time for'') our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, children, parents and loved ones.

It's not like anyone is being accused of being a bigot or hating the community... but everyone IS correct in pointing out that this is a very clear indicator of what a candidate's priorities are and where the LGBTQ community (and its issues) fall in the candidate's order of importance.

I think it would be weak sauce if the sum-total of a candidate's LGBTQ advocacy and support be limited to his (or her) one time appearance at a Pride Event.

All I'm trying to say is that this really isn't a one-and-done kind of thing, is it?

BS can't even get AA and POC to attend a rally at a BLACK church in a MAJORITY BLACK city.

He also appears to have given up the idea of people of color voting for him.

What really pisses me off is when anyone LIES and smears and denigrates the Democratic party.

I'm watching people move from "anyone but trump" to anyone but the one who trashed my favorite. Biden people hating on Warren. Warren people hating on Biden. A bunch of those who could take the Senate using up resources and debate stage chasing a pipe dream. Democrats getting pissed at Democrats.
You know what's even worse than that? What really pisses me off is when anyone LIES and smears and denigrates the Democratic party.

Oh, I'm sure you've heard all the smears before... the ugly lies...

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt". It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "feeble". It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "corrupt". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite". It's NOT TRUE that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans." It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "do-nothings". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change." It's NOT TRUE that the Democrats "focus too much" on diversity. It's also NOT TRUE that people who the refuse to vote for an African-American because of his skin color "aren't racists". It's also NOT TRUE that the Democrats who "are very big into diversity" aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class.

We can't win national elections whenever someone keeps repeating lies about the Democratic party... lies that discourage participation, volunteerism, support of our party's candidates, donating, canvassing, VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS!!!

Here's the bottom line when it comes to things like this: Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.
