A lot of people recognize this for exactly what it is.
The refrain that Biden is “Destroying our country” is something I see a lot. Obviously, it comes directly from Trump himself.
Let’s break this down piece by piece.
AMERICAN PATRIOTS ARE BEING ARRESTED & HELD IN CAPTIVITY LIKE ANIMALS
No, that would be violent Seditionists. Like this guy, Larry Brock:
Prosecutors have revealed that convicted Capitol rioter Larry Brock concocted a bloodthirsty plan to seize power on January 6th, 2021 that involved taking hostages, arresting journalists, and cutting off food and water to cities where Democratic voters lived.
As flagged by CBS News' Scott MacFarlane, prosecutors say that Brock wrote down his plan to overthrow the United States government on Christmas Eve, roughly two weeks before he and his fellow Trump supporters would storm the United States Capitol building.
As part of the plan, Brock outlined a series of "key tasks" that included initiatives to "seize all Democratic politicians and Biden key staff and select Republicans (Thune and McConnell)," at which point they would "begin interrogations using measures we used on Al Queda (sic) to gain evidence on the coup."
He then called for his fellow Trump supporters to "seize national media assets and key personnel," and then "eliminate them.
As if this weren't enough, he then issued a directive to "let the Democratic cities burn" and "cut off power and food to all who oppose us."
This is the kind of person whom Trump would like to grant a pardon.
WHILE CRIMINALS & LEFTIST THUGS ARE ALLOWED TO ROAM THE STREETS
This is right-wing bullshit. Crime is generally Down, but gun murders in Red States are Up.
- The murder rate in the 25 states that voted for Donald Trump has exceeded the murder rate in the 25 states that voted for Joe Biden in every year from 2000 to 2020.
- Over this 21-year span, this Red State murder gap has steadily widened from a low of 9% more per capita red state murders in 2003 and 2004 to 44% more per capita red state murders in 2019, before settling back to 43% in 2020.
- Altogether, the per capita Red State murder rate was 23% higher than the Blue State murder rate when all 21 years were combined.
- If Blue State murder rates were as high as Red State murder rates, Biden-voting states would have suffered over 45,000 more murders between 2000 and 2020.
- Even when murders in the largest cities in red states are removed, overall murder rates in Trump-voting states were 12% higher than Biden-voting states across this 21-year period and were higher in 18 of the 21 years observed.
Then you had…
KILLING & BURNING WITH NO RETRIBUTION.
On Trump’s watch, 14,000 people were arrested for the various Floyd Riots. Hundreds of them were prosecuted for violence and arson.
Some reports have estimated insurance claims for damages related to the 2020 protests totaled about $2 billion. However, the post is wrong to claim protesters saw no consequences – in fact, over 10,000 protesters were arrested, most for low-level offenses. [...]
Contrary to the claim in the post, many Black Lives Matter protesters did face consequences. Estimates vary, but news outlets reported thousands of protesters were arrested in the months following Floyd’s death in May 2020.
A June 22, 2020, article from The Washington Post tallied over 14,000 arrests made since May 27. The Hill reported over 17,000 arrests had been made in the first two weeks of protests.
Despite the large number of arrests, The Hill reported most of those protesters were booked not for violent crimes, but for low-level offenses such as violating curfews. Obstructing roadways and carrying open containers were other reasons for the arrests, as well as “failure to disperse.”
Some more serious charges were filed as well, however. The Associated Press reported hundreds were charged with burglary and looting as of June 4, 2020.
In October 2020, researchers writing for The Washington Post analyzed 7,305 protest events and found police made arrests at 5% of them. Only 3.7% of the events involved property damage or vandalism, according to the analysis.
PolitiFact reported in June 2020 that, while protests in several major cities started with violence, most demonstrations across the country were largely peaceful.
Let’s again recall this all happened on Trump’s watch, if he didn't like it he could have done something about it at the time. He didn’t. Well, other than trying to send the Military against the protestors to “crack their skulls” and “shoot them in the legs.”
MILLIONS ARE FLOODING THROUGH OUR OPEN BOARDERS,
The Border is not “Open.” Border Patrol has been arresting and expelling a record number of migrants. For FY2021 and FY2022 over 1.8 Million were arrested and 2 Million migrants were Expelled.
That means they didn’t “Come in” to the country, they were kept out. That means the border is Not. Open. It’s literally about as “closed” now as it’s ever been.
MANY FROM PRISONS & MENTAL INSTITUTIONS.
That is simply a racist lie. Most of them are families escaping the drug cartels and gangs that are paid for by the drugs we consume. Maybe if we had universal healthcare including drug treatment, that wouldn’t be such a problem.
CRIME & INFLATION ARE DESTROYING OUR VERY WAY OF LIFE
Inflation has been going down for the last 6 months straight, and the US is actually ranked at #16 in the World because inflation has been a Worldwide problem brought on by the pandemic and rampant corporate greed, not just something that only happened in the US because of anything Biden did.
According to a recent study, nearly 54% of the rise in inflation is directly attributable to the astronomical increase in corporate profit margins. In America today, while the working class struggles to put food on the table, fill up their gas tanks and heat their homes, corporate profits are at a 70-year-high.
If you want to know why you are paying $4, $5, $6 for a gallon of gas, you should know that the profits of ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP and Shell skyrocketed by 169% so far this year to $125 billion. These four huge oil companies are spending over $73 billion not to reduce gas prices at the pump but to buy back their own stock and increase dividends to their wealthy stockholders.
If you are wondering why you are paying 43% more for an airline ticket this year, you should know that profits are up 186% at American Airlines and 99% at United Airlines in the third quarter to nearly $1.5 billion. Yes. These are the same companies that received taxpayer assistance of more than $20 billion during the pandemic while cutting 6,400 jobs.
Yeah. And then...
NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE,
The News that the Grand Jury is about to reach a decision and make an indictment hasn’t come from the DA, it's been obvious from who has been testifying — like Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels — who told the press themselves.
WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME
Yeah, about that:
Overall index crime in New York City decreased for the second straight month in December 2022, declining by 11.6% compared with December 2021 (10,164 v. 11,496). Five of the seven major index-crime categories saw decreases, driven by a 26.1% decrease in murder…
WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS
So what if he is? Soros funds lots of stuff. You’re funded by China, Russia and Saudi Arabia. Does anybody complain about what the Kochs, Murdochs, Mercers and Sheldon Adelson goes around funding? [Ok, yeah — a little bit]
WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN
Ask Michael Cohen about that, he served 3 years for that “non-crime.”
BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE,
You mean the interference that was perpetrated by Bill Barr.
William Barr attempted to undermine prosecutors in longtime Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen's case shortly after he was sworn in as attorney general, numerous sources told The New York Times.
Cohen pleaded guilty in 2018 to tax evasion and campaign finance violations after admitting to paying $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels at the direction of then-candidate Donald Trump, who was referred to as "Individual-1" in court documents. But Barr sought to intervene in the case right after he became attorney general, at which time Cohen had already been sentenced to three years in prison, according to The Times.
Barr "spent weeks" last spring questioning prosecutors over their decision to charge Cohen with campaign finance violations. Barr argued, among other things, that the matter should have been brought to the Federal Election Commission instead.
THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.
He may be the leading Republican candidate.
That’s just too damn bad.
As he has done repeatedly, Trump has concocted a typically false narrative of what is actually happening. He is using this phony story to enrage his fans, to get them “Riled Up" once again in order to attack the NYDA, or perhaps the police and/or anyone that gets in their way.
Just like when he did it before, here:
Here’s Rick Wilson pointing out that Trump and his GOP flock are intent on dragging us all into their Delusional Alternate Universe just as he attempts to do with this post.
"You can talk about any of these candidates, but all of their presentations are dystopian," said anchor Joy Reid. "They're all saying America is in the toilet, they're all taking up Donald Trump's sort of downing the country and saying that it's awful, and they only are doing social issues and culture wars, none of them have offered a vision that's beyond that. I don't know how any of them would appeal in a general election."
"You know, Joy, that's exactly right," said Wilson. "This is the secret of MAGA: it's dark and paranoid and depressing and pessimistic and weak philosophy. Because they may beat their chests and do the whole monster truck thing, but the reality is they think we're weak. They think our country is bad. They think the things that make this big crazy country work and go forward are wrong. They want to turn the clock back to this imaginary past that never existed in any reality at all. They want to enter some alternate universe."
And the problem for Republicans, Wilson continued, is that that sort of messaging "will never work" on the median voter.
"The average person out there — they're not worried about wokism or whatever the hell it means," said Wilson. "They can't define it, of course. They're not worried about that. They're worried about the economy, their kids' education, their jobs, they're worried about things that matter to their families. And when they see things that threaten their families and hurt their families, because like it or not, Ron DeSantis, there are a lot of gay people in the country, there are a lot of African-American people in the country. You're just banning books, banning books about Rosa Parks and Hank Aaron in Florida schools because you don't like them, or taking out the fact that Rosa Parks was African-American in a school textbook, that's insanity. People will see that. So the darkness and the weirdness all together is going to make him, I think, very off-putting, until, of course, Donald Trump tears his liver out and eats it live on stage."
And now the rest of the GOPack of Delusional Assholes has started to chime in:
Funny people didn't say that when Trump was trying to get Hillary Clinton prosecuted with his “Lock Her Up” chants.
