One of my commenters (here) pointed out this, Republican Senator Apologizes to Black Constituents for Challenging Electoral Vote | Politics | US News. What’s this about? Well, here is an excerpt.
REPUBLICAN SEN. JAMES Lankford of Oklahoma apologized to Black voters in Tulsa for questioning the results of the presidential election – one of the only members of the GOP to publicly repent in the wake of last week’s riot on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters intent on overturning the results of the election.
“My action of asking for more election information caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state,” he wrote in a letter. “What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit.”Republican Senator Apologizes to Black Constituents for Challenging Electoral Vote | Politics | US News
We should all be fed up Republicans who don’t have the backbone to stand up to Liberal Democrats and their so-called mainstream news media allies. Liberal Democrats don’t debate. They attack. The so-called mainstream news media does not debate. The propagandize us. Here they are applying the bandwagon effect.
What Is the Bandwagon Effect?
The bandwagon effect is a psychological phenomenon in which people do something primarily because other people are doing it, regardless of their own beliefs, which they may ignore or override. This tendency of people to align their beliefs and behaviors with those of a group is also called a herd mentality. The term “bandwagon effect” originates from politics but has wide implications commonly seen in consumer behavior and investment activities. This phenomenon can be seen during bull markets and the growth of asset bubbles. (continued)Bandwagon Effect Definition (investopedia.com)
What is this application of the bandwagon effect supposed to do to us? It is an EMOTIONAL argument. When we see Republicans turning on us, we are suppose to want to be on the winning team, grow afraid of being on the losing team, and turn on President Trump too. The net result? Liberal Democrats and the so-called mainstream news media want to rule by ruling the mob. That is, they want mob rule, and they want to rule the mob. This is nothing more than cowardice masking as nobility.
There is no evidence that Trump’s case for election fraud is racist. Liberal Democrats call everyone who disagrees with them racists. During the primary season Kamala Harris called Joe Biden racist. They are that absurdly ready to use the charge and then drop it when it no longer serves their purposes.
Are most of the places where election fraud is alleged to have taken place areas where the predominant skin color is black or brown. I suppose so, but why would that be. Well, around 90 percent of the black vote goes to Democrats. Why? Consider what Joe Biden said.
‘You’ve got more questions?’ Biden replied. ‘Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.Biden tells voters ‘you ain’t black’ if you’re still deciding between him and Trump – video | US news | The Guardian
Liberal Democrats have become experts at division, and they know they have a lock on the black vote. Even though the inner-city areas where blacks live have awful schools, are poorly run, full of crime, and filled with broken, fatherless families; blacks vote for Democrats because they have been taught to believe Republicans are racists. Yet Democrats ruined their communities, not Republicans. Democrats, not Republicans, control black communities. Republicans loss control of these areas decades ago.
Therefore, if the localities where most of the election fraud took place are mostly populated by blacks (Frankly, I have not bothered to check.), it is not racist to point that out. What is racist is continuing to allow Democrats to run these localities unchallenged.
Politics is war. We fight this war with ballots, and we gain the most ballots for our side by making arguments that convince voters, not by doing what Republican Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma did, succumbing to political pressure. When Liberal Democrats call us racists, we resist with clearly and calmly stated logical arguments, and we fight for our position with the tenacity of Bugs Bunny.
Of course, you realize this means war! — Bugs BunnyBugs Bunny: Of course, you realize this means war! (quotes.net)
Seriously! If a politician is not willing to fight for us, at least as ferociously as a rabbit, what good is he?
You live in Oklahoma? Then give all the support you can to a Republican with more gumption than Republican Senator James Lankford.
