P. S. Just to clarify, my "should he win" remark in my opening was merely a bow to the legal and constitutional niceties. For what it is worth I think Mr. Biden won, but there are court cases to be heard and nothing is official until Congress certifies the Electoral College vote count.So I made allowance for that. However, I do NOT expect a changed result from that which has been projected by the networks since Saturday.
Calling Biden competent is a oxymoron.Can you please list a few examples of how Trump is a fascist? Can you actually define the word "fascist"?
@DreamCatchcer A fascist is a political actor who favors a mix of left and right wing populism to appeal to the economic and social prejudices of the general public. This includes state intervention in the economy and a protectionist trade policy in order to portray an image of a strong nationalist society that favors itself before anything else. Leaders of such societies often portray the press and critical voices as enemies of the people, dishonest, malicious, etc. Facts are twisted and dishonesty among the public is cultivated in the hopes of obfuscating any legitimate counter narrative. Trump may not be a fascist in the style of Mussolini or Hitler, but he's the closest the 21st century has had to one.
Fascism is a form of totalitarianism. Trump is far from being a fascist.Trump has no problem with the media. However, what we call media today is nothing more than way to disseminate the leftist message. The role of the media is to report facts, not propagate an agenda.
@DreamCatchcer Let me ask you a simple question. Do you believe, honestly, that if Donald J. Trump could snap his fingers and bypass all legal barriers to maintaining a second term, he wouldn't do it? Do you think he would stop and say to himself "you know what? I'm going to allow the democratic process to continue, and if I lose this election, I will leave peacefully"?
It it a bit foolish to believe Trump won't leave peacefully. That is a piece of propaganda the media puts out. Challenging an election is a constitutionally sound practice. If Trump can produce evidence of any voting anomalies, he has ever right to file a legal challenge.
@DreamCatchcer Ok so suppose the media reports on a comment made by an insider about Trump's refusal to concede or leave office. If you do not trust the media, what circumstances would need to arise in order for you to believe any negative thing reported about Donald Trump? If you don't trust the media to report news, this implies that you don't read or care about the news. But this also implies that you are dangerously misinformed no?It's a bit like talking to a conspiracy theorist; suppose the government lies about everything. But if this is so, it simply means that the media is malicious, it does not mean that you have more information than news reporters. So if a news reporter suggests something, would you agree that because of their privileged position, they are more likely to know truth from falsehood, regardless of how they spin it?
That would be reporting a comment. The fact would be someone made the comment. It still does not make it a fact that Trump will not leave office if he loses all of his legal challenges.
@Derek Let me ask you this. The media claimed that all the smelly Trump deplorables in their MAGA hats would riot in the streets. Where are they?
@DreamCatchcer www.foxnews.com/.../trump-supporters-protest-media-projections-of-biden-winRight here. I made sure to cite Fox since they're likely the only source that would be even remotely credible. In any case, I didn't read any story by any reputable source that claimed that Trump voters would be on the streets throwing bricks through windows. If you have something to the contrary I'll be happy to look at it.
@Derekk I'm with you 100%. Just want to throw out there, though, that since Fox News also called the election for President-Elect Biden and finally started shutting down the misinformation from Trump, that most Trumpist now chant "Fox News Sucks".So, they probably think Fox News is fake left wing media news now.

The entire thing with Hunter, video evidence of him being a creep with children on the political stage, the violence against women act where he essentially threw half of the US population under the bus, just to name a few.
Actually, I blame all that stuff on you.
Please be nice to me. Your hateful words make Baby Jesus cry.
