“Trump is shaking!!!”
All of the Christian White Women Over 40 in my family vote Trump/Republican. Most of them vote this way because of two things: immigration and abortion. Their biggest boogeymen are Planned Parenthood and Sanctuary Cities. The thing is, no amount of facts is changing their minds. I’ve tried. They don’t want to hear it.
And they don’t even seem to be that set on being equal to white men, as long as nobody else gets to be.
Leave rural America behind.

Eventually, the bubble collapses. At some point, there will be a split so vast that it’s simply impossible to be a good believer and accept the evidence of your own eyes, and they’re either going to snap out of it or go completely insane. In Jonestown, the collapse of the bubble led to mass suicide. In Germany, it led…
And they’re still going to come out of all of this believing they’re the victims.
Right now, the man the GOP has nominated for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court is shrieking about shadow conspiracies and retribution. Just a model of sober-minded jurisprudence on display.
Male escorts. Paid by the taxpayer. I would bet my house.
At this point I think we can call this “Classic” Avenatti. Threaten something damning. Give them a chance to clear the air (or more likely hang themselves.) Then swing the hammer.
This is discussed over on the Splinter thread, but just for anyone who didn’t see it:
Turn your disgust into anger. Go to your local high school and/or college and register young women to vote. Drag every decent person you know to the polls. Fight back.
