Classic bully behavior: When called out, play victim and deny everything.
Can we talk about this term for a minute?...he rips their fascist ideology to shreds...
So... What you're saying is that you totally understood what I was saying, don't disagree, but you would have used a slightly different word due to your own esoteric interpretation of its meaning?Can we talk about this term for a minute?
I've been seeing a LOT of this kind of metaphor, especially from places like the young turks and medias touch on youtube. Generally when you "shred" someones argument, TO ME, the implication is that you've changed their mind on the subject.
Don't get me wrong, they are absolutely destroying the "arguments" and talking points coming from the right: but they aren't changing the minds of the people spewing this bullshit. And, understand I mean from the outside looking in, it doesn't seem to be changing anymore minds of the consumers of the bullshit anymore either. I mean, its probably happening but on a small and slow scale.
Unless the spewers of bullshit recant because they were proven wrong: I honestly don't think anything was shredded.
Also, Biden can say whatever he wants but it doesn't mean shit if he's not backing it up with action. Pissing off his enemies is not going to magically make them disappear, or fail to show up at the polls, or really accomplish anything. And as for his own voters, the same people who say he's been too soft on Republicans ultimately still care more about his failure to do much of anything. If this is him saying "no more Mr. Nice Guy", I expect him to follow it with the sort of actions that normally implies, not further inaction.
Gotta say, Biden giving a primetime address devoted to a partisan attack against the other party while flanked by US Marines serving as props for his undisguised midterm campaign speech is creepy. Right down to the very dystopian stage dressing that looks like it came out of V for Vendetta.
And they won't do it. Because the posibility of absolute power out the other side is entirely too tempting for these psychopathic narcissists. And the few non maga republicans left: they won't stand up against them, they'll let them just do it and not fight back. Because the possibility of being actual new world kings is still too tempting to them.At this point your options are being anti-Trump or pro-fascism. There's no middle ground.
Biden's speech wasn't partisan, it was anti-fascist. He even gave Republicans an off road to still BE Republicans and conservatives. Just don't be MAGA, which is an explicitly fascist movement. That's it, it's the only request being made.
