Dem MAGA Pushback for Thanksgiving
is that sweat on your forehead?
A few days ago our Democratic friends at BidenHQ on X / Twitter decided to give their supporters some encouragement for Thanksgiving.
Of course, for us extreme ultra-MAGA racist-sexist-homophobes, this is very helpful. It tells us what our Democratic friends are worried about, and what they want their supporters to say when beating up their crazy MAGA relatives — all friendly like — at Thanksgiving dinner.
Let’s go through the Tweets, one by one. From time to time I will make a comment about the Price of Bridges in Ten-Percent-for-the-Big-Guy America.
One: "The economy was better during Trump!"
“Wrong!” say the Dems.
Yeah, Mr. Big Guy. I gotta bridge to sell you. Ten percent off old chap. Interesting that our Democratic friends should put this at No. 1. Could they be concerned that ordinary MAGA Americans are feeling the consequence of a couple years of COVID Money Printer Go Brrr and a couple years of Green Pedal to the Metal? Not to mention that ultra-MAGAs are facing the sharp end of the war against systemic racism.
Two: "Trump's going to protect our Social Security and Medicare!"
Protect Social Security? You gotta be kidding!
You have to say that the Democrats never let up on their narrative that the Republicans are going to take your Social Security away. Joke is: it would be the best thing to happen to Americans in many a year. Oh, not right away, but in a sensible transition from the current redistribution program to a savings program.
I would love it if Americans were forced to put 15 percent of their wages into their IRA invested in QQQ and SPY rather than the FICA tax and find out that they could retire early.
But then we would end up with a couple trillion a year available for more gubmint spending on wind farms and DEI. How do we stop that?
Three: "Trump secured our border!"
Yeah, Big Guy. You guys gotta a problem with the border. So why not revive the “kids in cages” meme one more time!
Plus, “Rounding up Latinos… mass detention camps… shooting people at will.” Only thing is that, as far as I know, when Latinos get the whole family here in the US they get to be real Trumpish on the border.
Four: "There's no federal ban on abortion, you can still get one – what's the big deal?"
Yes, but there are 21 states with an abortion ban in place, say the Dems.
We pro-lifers need to realize that the game has changed. And the fact is that blue states are going to legislate abortion right up to full-term and beyond. Today the task is to persuade our fellow Americans that abortion in the final months of pregnancy is disgusting. Meanwhile, abortion protects women that, like Blanche DuBois in Streetcar Named Desire, know they are expected to “put out.”
Five: "Trump is better for workers!"
No he’s not: he is just lying to you! Sez the Big Guy.
Yes, the Big Guy really has a problem with that one. Because Democratic spending programs are really good for the educated class: lots of subsidies for Rich-Guy-North-of-Richmond EVs and charging stations at the supermarket and solar panels on the roof and more DEI administrators. But the average American just needs an economy that works for workers.
Six: "World leaders respected Trump, and the world was safer!"
Only, say the Dems, foreign leaders “literally laughed and mocked Trump at the UN.”
Nooo! It could not be that the crude and crazy Trump made bad actors cool their jets. But you gotta say, no Foreign Affairs expert or State Department honcho could have come up with the Abraham Accords. Because every last one of them are mindless narrative followers. Henry Kissinger nailed them back in 1977 with his American Foreign Policy.
Seven: "Trump is winning in the polls!"
No, no, no! Don’t believe the polls, dear Democrats. “President Biden in running on a popular agenda and Trump is running on a losing, extreme one.”
Well, that’a relief. If I am a Democrat feeling a bit nervous right now. By next November everything will be copacetic.
Only, I remember that back in the day they had a sign in the Bill Clinton campaign HQ: “It’s the economy, stupid.”
I wonder what the economy will be like in November 2024.
