    I’m interested in and worried by the Republicans’ increasing use of language like ‘Radical’ ‘hardline left wing’ ‘Socialist’ about the Democrats. Obviously it’s kinda laughable given how not-any-of-those-things the Democrats are, but we know all of this language is used by campaigners with a purpose, especially with social media, and I wonder what the endgame is here? Could it be to make mainstream among Republican supporters the view that the Dems are ‘Unamerican’ and supporting them is ‘traitorous’?

    just recently:


    WAPO had an article about this recently, tracing the rhetoric back 90 years, but i can't link to it b/c paywall.

    But I think it's going to be nuclear-grade this time round, they seem to be turning the rhetoric up to 11.

    in other news, democrats flipped both houses of the VA state govt, and the governor of KY, a trump acolyte and an odious piece of work by all accounts, lost, despite a campaign visit monday from the great man himself (tho it is very close as of now).

    They really got all decked out for the occasion.

    Kinda reminds me of sports fans who get into their team colours.

    a_chap When the world came apart, where were you?

    I'm puzzled.

    Why shouldn't Mr and Mrs Black be allowed to show they are bigots their undying support for Trump by wearing a t-shirt?

    John Oliver should win an Emmy for this, with a nod or two to Monty Python.


    Some background on this, they mentioned this guy on the show a couple of years ago and were slapped with a frivolous lawsuit, which HBO just won.

    The moral of this story is don't mess with comedians.
