Now that the Republicans have begun their conclave, their message is far from the Democrats stated ideal. Mixing live groups with false-filled propaganda videos, the Republicans message is eerily similar to that which Adolf Hitler and the Nazis pushed to their supporters in the early 1930's. Diversity is bad, justice is only for the wealthy and privileged and yes, Racism is an acceptable value as long as it puts those that are perceived as being "less" than white folks down. When White folks complain, their grievances are real. When people of color complain, it's because they want to "game the system at the expense of White folks." Bull Connor and George Wallace would be so proud of today's Republican Party.
Trump then congratulated himself for creating the "Greatest Economy Ever" that was however, rooted in foundations clearly established under Obama. GOP speakers pursued a constant theme of instilling fear that everything happening in America today is due to "Radical Democrats and Joe Biden", ignoring Trump has been in office now approaching 4 years. Along those lines, Republicans screeched about Biden defunding police and raising taxes (Biden does not support defunding police and has stated no new taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000). What was lost to these sycophantic MAGAs? Trump's real message is that eventually, only the wealthy (or criminals) like himself will prevail as he intends to invoke a very special "Cancel Culture" of his own - cancelling health Care (ACA) along with Social Security and Medicare (and American Legacy Companies like Goodyear). You know, those that worked hard their entire lives without a daddy to leave them $400 Million. Many folks that just couldn't reach the American Dream, are mocked by the Trumpian Republicans by claiming it is too expensive (like health care coverage) so they ignore the real plight of Americans heading towards the abyss of poverty, illiteracy and closed doors to economic advancement. Much it because of the color of their skin or economic caste. Most Americans are not hypnotized by the brash, craven and immoral rantings of Trump, his family and army of Right Wing fanatics. Evangelicals have been duped by their grifting preachers (See Falwell, Jr.), but nothing has conned them quite like the snake oil purveyor himself, Donald Trump. "Law and Order" is the GOP rallying cry, while they break all norms, existing ethical laws, Rules relating to subpoenas, and gun laws (in favor of Trump supporting White Nationalists and "Q" Anti-Semites).
As Joe Biden has repeatedly stated, America is at an inflection point. We can go the route laid before us in our collective history from our Founding Fathers and Framers, or we can choose to take the low road into the abyss of Fascism/Trumpism. With the Republicans declaring they have no agenda or platform for the coming four years (just more of the same chaos, economic mayhem and deadly disregard for public health), and claiming "Our Cities will be destroyed under Joe Biden" we know where that path will take us - and it is not good.
Thankfully, Donald Trump has made it clear that there are 35% of Americans that are not only ignorant and stupid, but they enjoy that fact. They revel in being "recognized" for their stupidity and prefer to follow one that reinforces that fact by taking advantage of them at every turn. As one once said, "If you can not tell when a con is underway, then you are the mark." Let's not let Trump put any further "marks" on America. Vote Biden-Harris to save the America we all know and aspire to. Have a safe and great week!
