DUDE! I've been saying this exact thing here for years. I said clearly that when HWSNBN was elected, he was merely a symptom of what's happening to this country.You know what’s deeply disturbing? The fact that Greene isn’t actually the real problem here: she’s a symptom of a much deeper rot in American politics. The Republicans knew exactly who Greene was when she decided to run for election and did nothing to sanction or stop her. Republicans used to at least try to hide their racism and hypocrisy under a facade of respectability but their embrace of Trump has caused the mask to well and truly slip. Greene isn’t an outlier in the GOP: she’s the new face of the post-Trump Republican party.
We basically have two choices:
1) we need to figure out why there is so much anger, hatred and resentment among that base and attempt to address it through better education, and programs/policies that tackle the root cause of that anger. Or
2) we can call them ALL deplorables, tell them ALL they are fucking stupid for feeling this way and tell them ALL to fuck off and die.
One of those choices will begin healing the country. One of those choices will further divide the country until the United States of 'Murica no longer exists.
Are there some truly racist, deplorable whackadoos in the GOP? Of course there are. More than I ever imagined. However, I strongly believe that not all or even most of the 74M who voted for shitstain are that way. I think most are lost and terribly misguided and have been fed a steady diet of BS and lies by the people who will most profit by it. They've been lied to and literally programmed to believe this way for decades. It's been the most monstrous and evil mass propaganda machine that would make Goebbels and Stalin look like amateurs. I was driving across the country out west one day and only could get am stations. I listened to rush L. for about 5 min and had to turn it off, it was so disgusting. But the people who are these "deplorables" listen to this shit day in, day out have literally been brainwashed. Add in all the other RW media personalities who are making serious coin off of this shit and you have a machine that has ruined generations of good decent people. Couple that with an education system that is so utterly broken that these people can't even see the deep pit they are in.
The ONLY way out of this, IMHO, is to come up with better alternatives and a better message to counter the propaganda. Solid education coupled with attempting to address why these folks are so angry and lost. All the while attempting to cull and marginalize the extremists like MTG, trump, hawley, etc. But yelling at them and telling them ALL that they are fucking stupid cunts is not the winning SOLution.
