The Last Great White Whale

Is the orange narcissist the last hope for a white America? Maybe for some (forty-two percent). We have already moved to the non-white majority in several areas of the country and approaching with great speed for the nation as a whole. This does not sit well with a lot of people.

The reaction has been building for several years. White supremacists have killed many Americans during the last decade in an attempt to foment a revolution putting them back in power. They do not see themselves in power anymore. They have to share that power with co-workers who are not white and male. The jobs they had are in China, or Vietnam or Ghana.

Their concept of religion is woman as a breeder, similar to cattle, and the male being in charge – of everything. They cover their world by hijacking a religious name, but only as a general topping. They do not adhere to the religious teachings, quite the opposite in many situations.

At this time white males dominate all political power structures so that is not the goal. It is pushing non-white people back into the shadows. It is pushing LGBTQ people back in the closet. It is to put women back in girdles and petticoats, cooking dinner for the man of the house. Power is only good if there is someone under you.

What has to happen is the Democrats must find a way to bring jobs to areas of the country where the old Industrial Age jobs have moved away or shrank to floor sweepers under the robots. The people who feel powerless because they think their jobs are being stolen have to be provided with decent living, which includes new generation jobs.

Born in Detroit when Truman was president, survived the rest of them. Early on I learned that FDR was the greatest president, which has withstood all attempts to change that image. Democratic Party, flaming liberal, Progressive, equality for all and a believer in we are all human and deserve respect and understanding. College educated, a couple of degrees, a lot of world experience and tons of fun. US Air Force (pre-MRE days). Oil and gas fields, computer rooms and stuff beyond anything I can talk about. It has been quite a life so far. The future is making my retirement boat my home. Dogs, cats and other critters fill my life with happiness. Work pays the bills.

  1. warning: not for everybody but balloon drop was nice and the line about D’ump “the 2 ton whiney little bitch he is”

    Bill recaps the top stories of the week, including Oregon’s drug decriminalization and Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

  2. whatever you do, don’t miss jamie’s great contribution from last thread:

    America Assembled by John Piette

     

     

  3. I am starting to think this long period before the election is called for Biden is helping to defuse the volatile response by the white supremacists.  There was no immediate event to shoot up.  And each day goes by with them at alert to do whatever it is they want to do, is another day of boredom.  This weekend the maga mad are loading up the pickups with a lot of “freedom” flags, ie Gadsden and maga.  The goal is to overwhelm the world and go to the state capitols to protest the count.  The reality is like in Colorado, they are not going to Denver but to Colorado Springs.  duh.  Denver cops will arrest you if you show up with a gun, Colorado Springs will not.  This sounds more like a whiffle ball team going to the sports bar to drink away a loss the the good Sisters of the Poor.

  4. BB – That is a fair point about the majority of tRUMP’s racists not having anything specific to attack.   (The hard core, asshats will be easier for Feds to spot and contain.)
    Now, if we could only get the toddler tyrant to cry-fight himself to sleep.  

  5. I dipped into some FOX coverage last night. In their own way they’re accepting defeat but flinging out a gazillion reasons why it’s unfair or was just plain stolen. My fave: pollsters deliberately suppressed Trump’s vote by making it look like he was losing.

  6. Craig – the hard part of leaving an alternate, and horrible, universe, Back to the Future Part II, and having to face a real universe, here today, is being out of sync with almost everything.  Faux news has to dig up the 2024 candidate to run against Harris to keep them busy for the next year. 

  7. Oh geez
    Last night the NBC Decision Desk chief hinted they might wait until 100k provisional ballots in PA are counted, which hasn’t even started yet and might not start until Monday!!!

  8. BiD & BB, good point that the call delay has a silver lining in that during the lull the bully boys, magats and dingbats can shout themselves hoarse , shoot their guns til ammo runs out, blare horns, parade in trump trains, have keggers til sloppy and drunkenly cry themselves to sleep.

  9. patd – that is a wonderful political cartoon.  How true.  I never expected to have Tricky Dick replaced.  I do have hope that I will not be alive when the one worse than SFB is elected.

    When I worked cold case homicides, we sometimes charged killers 10, 15, 20 years after the murder took place. It wasn’t revenge, it was justice delayed. Charging political criminals that Barr protected during the Trump years is NOT revenge. It’s JUSTICE delayed. #TeamJustice
    A fine point.

  11. My favorite of the conspiracy types want to know how there could be 5 million votes when the population of Georgia was only 3 million.  He didn’t know there was a country named Georgia.  

  12. Just talked to an elderly, white neighbor who asked how the count was going.  Whelp, it turns out that he’s a Democrat from Western PA and he voted for Biden, as did his entire family in PA.  

  13. AP reports there’s a presidential motorcade lining up at white house and reporter saw golf clubs being loaded in a van. He might be playing golf when race is called. 

  14. So they could have already counted the mail-in votes (like they did in Florida) but complicit gop state legislators prevented it so they’d be able to have their orange shit show of claiming corruption.   Pretty un-American, if you ask me.

  15. the guardian:

    Multiple Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative media outlets in the United States have shifted their messaging in a seeming effort to warn readers and viewers that Donald Trump may well have lost the presidential election.
    The new messaging appears to be closely coordinated, and it includes an appeal to Trump to preserve his “legacy” by showing grace in defeat. The message is being carried on Fox News and in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post – all outlets avidly consumed by Trump himself, especially Fox.
    One Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, an intimate of the president ever since she spoke at the 2016 Republican national convention, made an astounding statement that seemed directed at Trump personally, advising him to accept defeat “if and when that does happen” with “grace and composure” and appealing to his sense of his own legacy.
    […]
    The Wall Street Journal has published an opinion piece with almost the exact same message. It is titled “The Presidential Endgame” and subtitled “Trump has the right to fight in court, but he needs evidence to prove voter fraud”.
    “Mr Trump’s legacy will be diminished greatly if his final act is a bitter refusal to accept a legitimate defeat,” the piece warns.
    […]
    The New York Post – which before the election was the launch vehicle for wild and desperate attacks on Joe Biden’s son Hunter – has produced a front page that all but proclaims a Biden victory:
    […tweet here showing front page photo triumphant joe with headline “ready, set… joe?]”
    Top editors at the Post have “told some staff members this week to be tougher in their coverage” of Trump, the New York Times reported, citing two anonymous employees of the paper.
    The Times piece said: “On Thursday, in a sudden about-face, Rupert Murdoch’s scrappy tabloid published two articles with a wildly different tone. One accused the president of making an ‘unfounded claim that political foes were trying to steal the election’. The headline on the other described Donald Trump Jr as the ‘panic-stricken’ author of a ‘clueless tweet’.”
    News coverage at Fox News has similarly shown little patience with the lies about voter fraud Trump is advancing in hopes of reversing the election.

  16. LP yesterday still in the mix running ads yesterday

    We’re staying in the fight: to defeat Trumpism we must also defeat David Perdue. Let’s elect Jon Ossoff.

  17. Hey, if this is his I-really-don’t-care maneuver to help him save face, good and good riddance.  Go cheat at golf. 

  18. BiD, i agree but would rather it be at a golf course in a galaxy far far away …

    actually this running off to hide means he knows joe will be called winner any second now and that he’s given up.   unlike him to forfeit the limelight.

    altho’ wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t fake a heart attack just to get attention and sympathy.

  19. BiD

    Thank you.  That whole “Union” album from Elton John and Leon Russell is one of my favorites.  One might even be Trump Centric – 800 Dollar Shoes

     

  20. Ha- stayed up late nights waiting for the call and it happened while i took a Saturday morning nap.
     
    Good job, everyone💪❤️🇺🇸

  21. Lincoln Project.  Work on Moscow Mitch. He and the loser Goopers are the stumbling block to a return to decency

  22. You should consider making a thread entitled “President-Elect Joe Biden” and put a photo of him by an American flag on it

  23. Now that my tears of happiness are slowing down I can do things.  When you rely on others to let you have rights and there is someone in power trying to make you a non-person moments like this are wonderful.
     
    I think Craig found the picture.
     
    It is important to keep in mind that SFB is not in his mind.  He lives in some brown sky place where everyone except “manly men” are scum.  If you are of any color other than off orange you are not even a person.  That he lost is not in his comprehension.  He will forever state he won and Biden cheated.  He can go golfing because he does not care or understand what this day means.  I also think he uses the golf course to come up with nasty attacks.  With luck he will crash his golf cart into a sand trap.

  24. Made a stupid decision, I was curious how CNN was covering the joy.  Santorum, and he was still making his Wiki reference applicable.  Stopped at CNBC, long enough to hear Chuck saying something stupid. Back to MSNBC.

  25. And, to assist with the last paragraph of BB’s post, President Biden (ahhh, that sounds good) should bring in Andrew Yang; tech, education, basic income.

  26. Sweetie wants us to be generous in victory. I say, sure thing after swift, copious and perfect prosecutions, maximum fines and maximum sentences to be served at Guantanamo. Following all that, I’m inclined to be generous.
     
     

  27. They took the toddler in the WH out to play.  He’s on the golf course. Can you just imagine having to deal with him?  Melania is going to have an awful night tonight. She’s probably at the spa.   Maybe she went to NY or FL ro avoid him tonight! Can you imagine being married to him???
    Love ya Joe!  Happy Days are Here Again!!!

  28. Then, you have John Cornyn who says that a win for him and other fascists-enabling, asshats, was Americans stopping “socialism.”  That’s what my relatives in California kept going on about.  “Socialism.”  That’s what took hold with Cuban-Americans in Florida, too.
    Not sure that had any play with Georgia voters, but get that sussed out now.
     

  29. Well, I will be taking a vacation day in January to watch and celebrate.   It will probably look very different because how do you a dozen inaugural balls during a pandemic?  I think they should just have a small, televised event in the WH.  Joe and Jill and Kamala and Doug can have their dances. Keep it small, safe and low-key. 

  30. The, three evil spawn can’t run in 2024, either, unless it’s as third-party, fascists.   They’ll try, but they’ll get spanked. 

  31. Sweetie wants us to be generous in victory. I say, sure thing after swift, copious and perfect prosecutions, maximum fines and maximum sentences to be served at Guantanamo. Following all that, I’ll feel more inclined to be generous.
     
     

  32. Time to put my plan to reclaim my citizenship in the country of my grandmother’s birth on hold.  I prefer the climate here and I like to have some sunshine during winter.  .

  33. Where’s Rudee?    If he’s the chief lawyer for the SFB campaign they’ve got nothing for sure.

  34. The republican party interest groups :
    gun nuts, anti-medical abortions (a opposed to pollution abortions), tax haters, racial oppressors, gender oppressors, Big Pollution, Big Oil, Big Weapon, Big Church, Big Farm and suburban developers.
     
    How will the coalition survive this defeat ?  Who are they going to add, and will additions cause some groups to split off ?
