You know the worst thing about Republicans? Republicans always want credit for some shit they supposed to do. A Republican will brag about some shit a normal man just does. A Republican will say some shit like, “I cooperated with the investigation” You’re supposed cooperate, you dumb motherfucker! What kind of ignorant obstruction of justice shit is that? “I ain’t never colluded with Russia!” What do you want, a cookie?! You’re not supposed to collude with Russia, you low-expectation-having motherfucker!
Republicans love to NOT know. Nothing make a Republicans happier than not knowin the answer to your question. Just ask a Republican a question. Any Republican! “Hey, Republican, who was the president right before Obama, the one who lied us into war, crashed the economy, allowed the use of torture and was rewarded with a second term by a Republican majority?” “I don’t know that shit! Keepin’ it real!” Republicans love to keep it real… Real dumb!
“Severino made it clear that defending religious freedom was his primary goal when he created a new Division of Conscience and Religious Freedom. “Never forget that religious freedom is a primary freedom, that it is a civil right that deserves enforcement and respect,” Severino said when he created the division.”
This is the problem in a nutshell. I’ve seen this first hand. Arguments about facts that make the theory seem less likely just bounce off boogymen appear from every corner. They become unreachable. Otherwise normal people who fully realize that Bill and Hillary Clinton were unable to conceal a blow job and an email server are fully convinced that they are behind literally dozens of killings and ran a human trafficking operation.
“If you address the conspiracy theory head-on, you just amplify the message you are trying to disprove. If you ignore it you just get screamed at and harassed until your career is over. It’s a no-win scenario,”
They don’t actually care about what the governor did. This is an opportunity to score points and accuse liberals of hypocrisy. That’s the only reason why the right is interested in this story.
“But while Democrats, and decent people everywhere, have a right to demand that Northam step down, Republicans who continue to support a party dominated by Trump can’t be taken seriously on this point.”
The difference between then and now is that Trump has wholeheartedly embraced the concept of shutting down parts of the federal government to force congressional Democrats to support funding for the wall.
This is infighting between GOP Senators and the White House. This can only work if they can get the public on their side and it looks like the opposite is happening.
Republicans wondering if loyalty to Trump is worth it should call Chris Christie and ask him.
