Political warnings

So one convention is over and another underway. I am particularly impressed with the substance and clarity expressed by the people campaigning for Trump. If you missed the speeches so far here is a short clip from the convention where the public is warned of the dangers of voting for Biden/Harris:



What I think might be appropriate now would be a fair and balanced, fact-based counterargument from the Democrats. So far they have not gone in this direction which, based on Trump's past success, is a mistake. I do realize they aren't particularly good at this, so I humbly offer a few points they might want to incorporate into their campaign:

Thanks to the Republican convention speeches we now know what tragedies will befall us if we vote for Biden, but what will happen if we vote for Trump? Well.....

1: The suburbs will not be eliminated like they will under Biden, but they will look different as Covid-19 mutates.

2: Kellyanne Conway will go door-to-door at night and eat your soul.

3: Giant holes will open around the world and swallow up anyone not wearing a MAGA hat.

4: You will only be given two choices in the vehicle you drive:
This, or.......

....this. No exceptions.

And 5: Armies of thugs in Trump masks will raid schools, abduct and sodomize your children, and then eat them.


While, according to the Republicans, life will be a doomed, living hell under Biden, as you can see from these 5 warnings, there are consequences to voting for Trump too. We definitely have a difficult choice to make.

    1. Yeah, but effective satire requires a gap between the reality and the satirical treatment. I'm not convinced that Kellyanne *doesn't* go around eating people's souls. I bet George Conway would testify his has been thoroughly sucked dry.

    2. Dan: Perhaps. I sort of feel like every time I hear her speak, there is some kind of depletion to my own life force.

  6. If you go in with an open mind, The Democrat convention was very boring, low-energy, negative, and very short on policy. The Republican convention is also short on new policy, but long on accomplishments, long on speakers who very effectively counter the "Orange Man Bad" narrative, high-energy, and very positive in its messaging. Needless to say, I am pleased!

    1. I've watched each night of both, and both were very boring. I'm not sure what you found exciting about last night's segment, but I thought it was just mind-numbingly boring. Also, I'm not sure how the "Orange Man Bad" narrative is being countered. It's just his family members coming on and saying he's a great guy, without any actual concrete examples of his great guy-ness. And, some of the speeches have been just bizarre. Kimberly Guilfoyle's was totally unhinged. It reminded me of Admiral Hux speech in The Force Awakens, complete with veins popping and spit flying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEJWYGgG9Bk. And, yes, Don Jr. did appear to be high. Though, he probably has to be if Guilfoyle is like that at home.

    2. You're such a fan! You really need to vote for him. Just mail one in with a Canadian postmark! If it's for him, he'll want it counted.

    3. Hi Dan - I was referring to the various people of colour and women who spoke to President Trump's support and humanity. Such as Hershel Walker who completely destroyed the "Trump is a racist!" narrative, or Alice Johnson on President Trump's support for criminal justice reform, or Ronna Macdonald on how Trump supported her to become Chair of the GOP, or Kellyanne Conway speaking about Trumps support for the first woman to lead a successful presidential campaign. I thought all that was nice. What was disgusting was the leftist mob who targeted people leaving the White House after the event.

      And kdp, with so much Democrat support for universal mail in voting and no voter id, I'm pretty sure I could vote, early and often, even in Canada ;-) I predict a fiasco in your country election night, thanks to the Dems.

    4. >>>>>>I predict a fiasco in your country election night, thanks to the Dems.<<<<<

      There are plenty of things the 'Dems' screw up, but I find it very telling of any given individual when they state what they think those things are. Take this claim of yours. Would you care to explain exactly how one party is going to pervert the voting process? It's like Trumpfuck's claim that mail-in is great in Republican states but disastrous in Democratic states.

      I will say these one-sided conspiracy theories are very entertaining though. How about this one: "If elected Biden will make a deal with space aliens to teleport all Trumplicans to a faraway planet where they will be used for alien experiments."

  7. Didn't you hear? Mnuchin says covid is a thing of the past now. It's over, thanks to 45 banning visitors from China six months ago. Sigh.
