I have to say: the negative backlash towards Biden is not as strong when compared to Hillary Clinton's in 2016.

With her, the backlash has been building since the 1990s, fueled greatly by Benghazi and the emails scandal prior to the 2016 election. Plus, there was a dose of sexism.

With Biden, most of the backlash is basically stereotypical "senile old man" cliches, which don't really work as he is only 4 years older than Trump. The Hunter Biden laptop story hasn't gained much longstanding traction, and none of the nicknames are particularly memorable (at least Hillary got the name Killary).

All in all, Republicans got creative and more focused when dealing with Clinton; got lazy and predictable when dealing with Biden.

Trump supporters took our lack of rallies as lack of enthusiasm.

They thought we're weak, so they underestimated our determination.

They totally missed that 80 million of us would have crawled over broken glass to vote.

And now, they're stunned; full of ‘we wuz robbed’, and harebrained conspiracies.

It’s perfect.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m finding their desperate, clueless flailing about very satisfying.

@snood,
And in a very predictable manner, Trump and his supporters are going to mock Biden for having a smaller inauguration crowd (despite ongoing health concerns).

Quote:
The GOP Is a Propaganda Party
Media parasites have taken control of the host

Cymothoa exigua is a terrifying creature.

The parasite enters a fish through its gills, attaches to its tongue, consumes the tongue, and then becomes a sort of new tongue. For the rest of the fish’s life, it swims around with the “tongue-eating louse,” as the isopod is known, operating its mouth.

At first, seeing a photo of it made me recoil. Then, I realized it seemed oddly familiar: It reminds me of the relationship between what’s loosely defined as “conservative media” and the GOP.

For a long time, most influential right-leaning media figures were content to swim alongside the GOP, flowing along in the same general direction. Until Donald Trump came along. Then they saw an opportunity to burrow deep inside the GOP and wield real power.

It worked. So well that the GOP, as an institution, no longer controls its tongue and its craven media parasites are the only thing keeping it alive.

Ask yourself, “Who are the actual leaders of the GOP?” Who truly influences Republican voters?

It’s not whoever the Republican National Committee will nominate as its next chairman. It’s not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, for God’s sake. It’s the Fox News primetime lineup, the large galaxy of radio and digital outlets clamoring to place their personalities and stories on Fox News, and their vast array of fringy lower-tier knockoffs.

All day, every day, these talkers, writers, producers, and editors set the party agenda. They act as the Republican party’s “war room.” They give favored politicians airtime to solicit donations from their viewers. They go negative on their political enemies. Their stars even headline campaign events to rev up the base and get out the vote.

The ones who are good at it get paid far more by the likes of the Murdoch and the Mercer families to carry out the political agenda than any mere senator or congressman. These talkers, not the elected officials stuck grubbing around shaking hands and campaigning in the streets, are the party’s real leaders.

Donald Trump is almost an afterthought in this context. After all, where is Trump without the glow of the TV camera and his Twitter handle? Nowhere. Long before he announced his candidacy in 2015, Fox primed the GOP base for a candidate like him; the network gave him more airtime than other candidates, including a longstanding call-in segment on Fox & Friends; no one blinked an eye when Fox head Roger Ailes, who had a quarter-century friendship with Trump, began advising the Trump campaign soon after Ailes’s ouster from the network. And beyond and before Fox, the media—news, talk, and entertainment—always have been and always will be Trump’s source of political strength. That will only become more true after he leaves office. He will continue to seek out ratings, somewhere, as sustenance for relevance and survival.

The only question is what channel and whether he appears on the network, owns it, or licenses his name.

Knowing this dynamic within the GOP, it’s no wonder that (to name just one ambitious pol) Sen. Ted Cruz has adopted the posture of an online Twitter troll instead of the constitutional scholar-turned-statesman of the most Republican of the big states. One doesn’t amass a rabid grassroots following by passing bipartisan legislation, delivering on constituent services, or even acting to protect the homeland during a pandemic. The demands of leading and governing in the public interest have never meshed well with the demands of winning and keeping office, but they have never before been so contradictory.

Propaganda Party rules dictate that “owning the libz” and generating likes, retweets, and reactions online are the key to success. In the absence of any policy platform, a new party operating philosophy has emerged among politicians and media figures alike: present Trump-friendly figures in the best light possible and depict anyone who stands in their way as some variation of a socialist, child-eating, Satan worshipper...

Gloves off!

Anyone who votes for a Republican...even on a local level...is a traitor to this nation.

ANYONE!

What a bunch of lying bullshit.Laughing Laughing Laughing There is no way Braindead Joe and peanut butter legs Harris got 80 million votes. Trump forced the corrupt bastards to overplay their hand and every honest intelligent person knows that. Where does that leave the people who actually think it happened?

It leaves them as liars or really, really stupid.

For all the effect they’ve had on the results of the election, and for all they’re going to to to stop Joe Biden from being inaugurated, they may as well be.

Not to mention the various Judge's scathing legal opinions on the so called affidavits, data, and illegal ballots as being more or less nonsense.

What is a so called affidavit? What makes data so called? What makes illegal ballots legal?

Why did you even post that? To show everyone how smart you are? Fail. Laughing Laughing Laughing
