Stop the deflection. We are not about whether Democrats Do It Too. Of course they do, though in lesser numbers, and usually far, far less egregiously.

We are about a rogue presidency which owes its existence to an international, multilevel coup d'etat. We are only too aware of the ongoing maneuvers that are made daily to maintain this illegitimate kakistocracy. One of these is the classic 8-year-old-kid thing of, "But Mom, everyone does it." Another is the classic Stalinist tactic of distract, deflect, destroy. This has been a standard Republican spin management riff for years now, but the current bunch plays it with virtuosic skill.

We need a working political process, not a reality show. Government by television (and Twitter) is evil.

You need to read my previous comments about glen's attempt to tell Mom that Democrats do it too.

Also this one.

Also glen's SCREAMING CAPS, and also the racism/sexism/toxic masculinity discussion where BIG WRITING started, though I'm tongue in cheek on that one.

But if ONE democrat did ONE thing wrong EVER it is the same and worthy of turning America over to Putin.

It's glen's OP with the SCREAMING CAPS. The Democrats who are being asked, "Are you still beating your wife?" You can't miss it. There's a whole long, and typically futile, discussion.

I've been involved in the discussion Zowie. I was not involved in the re-labeling of it THE DEFLECTION THREAD.

It's a new thread. I didn't start it, though it comes from something I said on the old one.

You can still read the old one, though its OP is classic Republican deflection.

You are doing a good job of deflecting on the deflection thread

wait

:rofl:

I saw what you did there...you are good :lol:

BTW, while glen and rump deflect, Putin's orders to rump to destroy our country with tariffs is working... China is about to cripple us, permanently. Putin wins.

Of course it is. How long has bird had his sig line. We get exactly the kind of government we deserve. It's on the people of this country.

I was running some errands yesterday, had NPR WBEZ/CHI "Morning Edition" on. They did a brief street interview spot...interviews recorded over the weekend in Iowa and one of the southern red states. There was one that really struck me...some 65 year old Iowan woman who basically said "I don't see how we should let something an 18 year old did years ago impede the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice."

And I'm immediately hollering at the radio like a fucking lunatic. The first thing that came to mind was, reckon if it was some 18 year old black kid who shot a 12 year old girl in the head in a gang shootout? Would you be so willing to just let it go? But when it's some white bread pious catholic judge rapist its, "Hey! What's the problem?"

Because of as glen has attempted and failed at deflection of certain threads , I thought I would try and do him a single solid and I dedicated a thread to his inept ability to do nothing.

Arm on waist in public photo, multiple gang rapes.

One had to go, the other is just fine.

Which is which?

I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all, it was you and me

Americans don't like politics, by and large. All too often, the assumption is that nice people don't do it. Therefore, we get the government we deserve.

To be honest I've never even heard the term deflection thread before...spoken at any volume. So I'm not sure what it actually means. Is something bouncing off of it?

If we are only about stopping Republicans then yes, you are correct, stop the deflection.

On the other hand if we are about opposition to violence, abuse, mistreatment toward woman (and/or others) then we have to speak up wherever it happens...its more important on our side.

That's not a pass for anyone... I don't care who runs a stop sign. It's dangerous.

Deflection is what Republicans do when confronted with the facts. This thread was inspired by glen citing sexual misbehavior by a couple of Democrats, with the intention of showing "everybody does it." Even if everybody does, which they don't, we're talking about picking a Supreme Court justice here. Not exactly like hiring someone to work the graveyard shift in an adults only peep show.
