Good Explanation of Why Tossoff Lost

An extended twitter essay here.

If you want the short version, see Stephen Greene's digest.

If you're too lazy even for that: People are sick as hell of the riots, the bullying, the temper tantrums, and the constant caterwauling banshee-wailing from the Monster Babies, or the Garbage Babies as Iowahawk calls them.

They're sick of the constant agitation towards violence from the left, and the media's covering that up, at least, when it's not openly justifying it.

They're sick of the left making them second-class citizens and imposing that status through both vigilante violence as well as the official actions of the corrupt and weaponized state.

They're sick of the institutions of what used to be called "America" issuing get-out-of-jail-free cards to those who threaten American citizens, thereby giving the left a hunting license to kill people on the right.

They're sick of Fake News CNN, where an anchor, shortly after a Black Lives Matter assassin shot a bunch of cops in Dallas, praised that leftwing assassin as "courageous and brave." (Skip to 2:04.)

In short, they're starting to realize the left has declared solemn war on them, and they're waking up to that awful reality, and the inescapable consequences of it.

As expected, a tight race in a toss-up district went to the Rs because of D-inspired violence and assholery.

***
The Democrats pre-1968 were corrupt, but they generally were pro-American.

The current Democrats want to "fundamentally change" the American electorate out of existence. Whether that means making elections meaningless or actually eliminating the voters depends on which Democrat you talk to.

But either way, any time you are voting for a Democrat now, for any race, for any reason, you are voting for your own extinction.

There are no moderate Democrats.
There are no pro-American Democrats.
There are no reasonable Democrats.

Every one of them when push comes to shove will handle Pelosi and co their vote.

41 That's a good summary ... though Tossoff still got more votes than he should have, given all those things, and given how pathetic he was.

Many people are tired of those things, but much of the GOPe still supports much of that, and DC is still a globalist cabal that is wrongfully probing a duly elected president, after watching a vast criminal enterprise operate freely under Obama.

That the money was not enough to buy the district is good ... but that candidate was pathetic, and the internet a strong counter-platform.

Still, it is a great list of things gone wrong, and we can hope more wake up to those realities that skewer the PC dogma.

Shouldn't take a genius to figure out that- hey if they don't want me, I'll hang out with these folks over here.

They drew the "red line" (battle line if you will). Now let's see how serious they are with those postures when it comes to a serious high-stakes election.

As many of us keep saying, the Tea Party was the polite request for such things to cease. Trump is the less polite version.

If Trump is removed from the Presidency by anything other than the ballot box, or, Heaven forfend, natural causes, then there will be a response after that.

I don't want that. No one here wants that. Schlichter doesn't want that. Insty doesn't want that. Begging, with tears in our eyes, that it does not come to that.

But. But I've read history. Even I, with my shaky grasp of human nature, comprehend that humans will human. This is how this story will end unless we choose another adventure.

There was a draft, which meant there was some reason for folks to be protesting. There were no problems with new administrations coming in and most folks loved their country, regardless of their politics.

This is much different, since we are dealing now with people that hate us because they didn't get things their way.

120 Lol, I did this last night. I guess this thread is as good a place as any.

in case anybody didn't think of this.



The commies went down to Georgia
they were looking for a seat to steal
they were in a bind, 'cause they're way behind
and America's refusing to kneel

When they came across this man boy
wearing pajamas and diddling his twat
Soros jumped up on Hillary's rump
and said boy let me tell you what

You probably could have guessed it
But I'm a fellow commie too
And were running out of citizens
who we can tax and screw

Now you wear some fine pajamas boy
so give ol' satan his due
I got a mountain of gold to buy your soul
and take trump down a level or two

The boy said my name's jonny ossoff
with his hipster beta grin
maybe girls will like me
and mommy says I'll win

Jonny polish up your speech
and hone your line of shit
the Georgians see just what you are
you carpet bagging twit

If you win, the media will likely kiss your ass
but if you lose we're out a ton of cash


Jonny let them plead their case
and said lets start this show
the media spewed their talking points
hoping jonny's balls would grow
election day is ours said soros with an evil hiss
and as we all expected, it turned out just like this-





The Donald sat back in his chair
and said you're fuckin' done
so pull that thumb out of your ass
cause you're the reason why I won

Leftists flaming out one by one
pissing through cash by the metric ton
America spoke and is letting you know
Hillary as president no, hell no.


when Tuesday night was over
the left knew that it was beat
they stood around in silence
staring at their flaccid meat

The Trumpster said just come on back
just tell me where and when
'cause I told you silly assholes
America will be great again.

121 If the open-borders crowd believes America is so damn great, and everyone on the planet has the right to move here and be an American with no questions asked...

Why don't they advocate for America to conquer all other nations and territories on the planet, thereby guaranteeing American residence for all their brothers and sisters in one fell swoop?

Oh, that's right, I forgot. They're full of shit, and all they want is to destroy, because they're barbarians.

Actual tidbits gleaned from trawling progtardia:

"That district went +22.8 for Trump, so Handel winning it by only +3.8 shows how weak and unpopular Republicans now are."

Ummmmmmmmm guys? Trump carried GA-6 by +1.5.

"Handel bought her victory. She outspent Ossoff by $10.2M."

Wow, not even remotely in accordance with the facts. The spending disproportionation was entirely on the Democratic side. Whether one counts third-party money or not, Ossoff and allies decisively outraised and outspent Handel and allies.

The problem dems have turning out their base (ppl of color, women), is that those ppl of color consider white people too privileged (and supremacist) for them to support, and the women won't vote for a white cis-gendered male. They've fractured their party with identity politics and the pieces go after each other. What a shame.

229 Dems missed the 2016 election pattersn. The CW is that poor uneducated white rural people voted for Trump so when you run in a rich suburban educated area, people will vote against Trump.

And that is BS.

If you look at exit polls, Trump won the middle and upper middle class vote. He won every income group above $50K. He also won white men with a college degree by 15-25, depending on which exit poll you use. He also won the suburban vote (while getting crushed in the cities and winning YUUGE in the exurbs).

So the entire premise that Trump **ONLY** won because of white working class voters living in the middle of nowhere is wrong. And everything the Dems have done since Nov. 8th has been built on that faulty premise. Which is why they keep losing.

The comments made by the sociology professor consisted of:
"It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be 'white' will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system #LetThemF-ingDie".

The sociology professor continued: "The time is now to confront these inhuman assholes and end this now."

No, that was when the Seminole Tribe pounded Andy Jackson in the First Seminole War in 1818, using their LONGBOWS to great affect against Jackson's troops.

Jackson's men rallied and ended up winning the war, which was fought in the main to wrest Florida from Spain and prevent it from being used as a haven for runaway slaves.

This is a classic "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" narrative by the NYTimes.

The GOP had just TWO options yesterday:

1. Experience a humiliating defeat;
or
2. Barely avert a humiliating defeat.

Either way, the concept of "humiliating defeat" looms there like a physical entity, super-real and tactile and substantive, no matter what happens.

OK... they've convinced me.... they win... I'm a racist and bigot and sexist...

340 In 2008, Rahm Emanuel got progressive democrats to run as commonsense, moderate democrats and stealthily won in many districts. Once elected and in the majority, they shivved their moderate, commonsense voters by NOT representing them. They stuck their fingers in their ears, ignored their constituents, and voted for all of the progressive nonsense. When people showed up to townhalls to politely, yet vocally, voice their displeasure, these "commonsense" representatives turned around and called their constituents racists, homophobes, Nazis, etc.
Never again. They can't run on killing cops and putting white people in camps so look for them to attempt this stealth strategy again in 2018. I already heard Rahm Emanuel yammering this morning.
Traditional, stupid GOP strategists do not understand why so many moderate democrats and independents voted for Trump. Non Karl Rovian, smart GOP candidates and strategists need to be out in front of this. The Dems are NOT trustworthy; they will say anything to get elected. People cannot forget.

Of course, this never works. If Trump goes down, so does every Republican on the ticket.

So do they simply buy the Democrat narrative? Or do they believe it?
Like you say, the GOPe is tied to Trump whether they like it or not. It's not like they are going to help impeach him and then retain control of Congress--AND run Jeb in 2020. That ship has sailed. Trump has already succeeded in changing the paradigm.

I still can't understand how today's Democrats get anyone to vote for them who is and/or wants--

Middle Class
Jewish
Christian
White
Asian
for freedom of speech
2nd Amendment
Peaceful streets and neighborhoods
Good safe schools with quality education
Good safe streets
Safe borders
No terrorism
Equality for all
Liberty
Energy Independence
a good and better life for their children
No political violence
No political terrorism
A functioning healthcare system free from gov't mandates and favoritism
Low taxes to keep more of the value of your labor
Low industrial/business taxes to keep jobs form going overseas
Hiring fellow Americans

And that's just off the top of my head.

If you are or you're for any of those, why in the world would you vote Democrat?

366 the "college educated vote Democrat" meme is a myth ... or deliberate propaganda actually.

For one thing, Trump won the white college degree or more vote by 4% (not subtracting the illegal alien college degree vote). For another thing, the less than college degree vote for R's is at the higher end of the income spectrum (read that analysis recently, couldn't find the link).

Obviously what carries the vote for Dems is "minorities" wanting special privilege. A big part of the is racist based, as 93% of blacks vote D, and 75% of Hispanics. The "no high-school degree" camp is also Dem as I read it, but can't quickly find those numbers.

Working class America is Trump, even with (non-gov) unions. Clearly those voting D have been turned by the left's control of all institutions, or for their base, the hope for more free shit. Oh, and Dems win the under 45, Rs win the over 45 ... which is part maturity, part the grew up before education was an anti-America, kill your parents institution.

I took the liberty of e-mailing your #120, in it's entirety, to Michael Berry, syndicated talk radio host, based in Houston, TX.

AM-740, KTRH

If you wish, email me with your contact info, and I'll forward that along to him. Good chance, his top-notch production staff just might run your lyrics through the "set to music" and with some good vocal talent, too.

In other words, you might go nationwide with that one.

So, brush up on the MS-Word "Special Character" with the Copyright symbol, and officialize it as "yours". Be sure to save a physcial copy of when you 1st posted it, too.

All that is my way of saying VERY Well Done, sir!
