‘The Party Has Become a Cult’: Joe Walsh Suspends Republican Presidential Campaign

Westlake Legal Group 5btvK2rKpkNg-f8D5Blv6yvzA6UlTg9HVcv9BUo_6cA ‘The Party Has Become a Cult’: Joe Walsh Suspends Republican Presidential Campaign r/politics

It’s not? Apparently you forgot this:

On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump.

On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket.

You in?

Or how about…

Trump, Walsh wrote in a New York Times op-ed earlier this month, is not a good leader, but a “racial arsonist who encourages bigotry and xenophobia.”

Walsh should know.

The one-term former House member from Chicago, who now hosts a radio talk show, has a long history of making racist and incendiary comments, particularly about Barack Obama. He falsely accused the former president of being a secret Muslim who hates Israel and regularly questioned his birthplace ― a conspiracy theory also embraced by the current occupant of the Oval Office. Obama, Walsh further argued, only won the 2008 election because he is a “black man who was articulate.”

In 2016, after a police shooting in Dallas, Walsh promised “war” and warned Obama to “watch out,” alleging that he helped get “cops killed.” After the 2015 domestic terror attack in San Bernardino, California, he urged people to “do whatever we can to defeat Islam.” He was also briefly kicked off the air for using racial and ethnic slurs on his radio show.

Seems like this WAS your party… Until you realized that Trump had hijacked the controls you and your cohorts spent decades installing in the Republican base to get the results you want…

‘I would rather have a socialist in the White House than Donald Trump,’ says Republican Joe Walsh

Westlake Legal Group NgAnF6vsc0Cd4G_EaL0l4k0ZeHRcbRWHJhJE4o7tC74 ‘I would rather have a socialist in the White House than Donald Trump,’ says Republican Joe Walsh r/politics

Reading Joe Walsh talk about the pure delusion of Trump supporters is disheartening and validating (even if he’s still pretty horrible for other reasons).

I asked dozens of people a very simple, straightforward question: “Has President Trump ever told a lie to the American people?” And every single person said, “No.” Never mind that thousands of his misstatements have been meticulously documented. No, they said, he’s never lied.

I brought up his years-old claims that, unlike President Barack Obama, if Trump ever became president, he’d be too busy to play golf. Most people responded by saying they don’t care whether Trump golfs. But three people said that Trump has never golfed since he’s been president. No one said that they thought he did anything wrong with Ukraine. No one knew that our annual deficits just blew past $1 trillion. Everyone believed hundreds of miles of new wall had been built. (Fact check: False!) When I asked whether they thought Mexico was paying for the wall, most people said yes but were at a loss to explain how. On and on it went: CNN was the enemy and Rep. Adam B. Schiff (Calif.), along with the rest of the congressional Democrats, were lying traitors.

I also phone-banked this week, calling potential Republican caucus-goers throughout Iowa. I always knew it when I got a strong Trump supporter on the line by the language they used and the tone that they took: They’d say no president has been attacked like Trump has or no president has had to deal with such hatred and opposition. (Again: Not true!) They’d get defensive and throw out more lies and half-truths: China is paying for the tariffs, Joe Biden was covering up for his son, and Russia didn’t do anything in the 2016 election were all popular. On and on it went: I ended my two hours of phone time each day pretty bummed out by the mis- and disinformation I’d heard.

I realized once and for all that nobody can beat Trump in a Republican primary. Not just because it’s become his party, but because it has become a cult, and he’s a cult leader. He doesn’t have supporters; he has followers. And in their eyes, he can do no wrong.

They’re being spoon-fed a daily dose of B.S. from “conservative” media. They don’t know what the truth is and — more importantly — they don’t care. There’s nothing that any Republican challenger can do to break them out of this spell. (Thanks, Hannity.)

Virginia will eliminate a state holiday honoring Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. It’ll make Election Day a day off instead

Westlake Legal Group 072I599CY8Z5Or1N4wUNEvmHsnDpbXPuBXUBoU-uLek Virginia will eliminate a state holiday honoring Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. It'll make Election Day a day off instead r/politics

Go look up “the lost cause of the confederacy”. That group created these fake narratives around heroic traitors and built the generic monuments

“Particularly intense periods of Lost Cause activity came around the time of World War I, as the last Confederate veterans began to die and a push was made to preserve their memories, and during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, in reaction to growing public support for racial equality. Through activities such as building prominent Confederate monuments and writing school history textbooks, they sought to ensure future generations of Southern whites would know of the South’s “true” reasons for fighting the war, and therefore would continue to support white supremacist policies, such as Jim Crow. In this manner, white supremacy is a characteristic of the Lost Cause narrative.[2]

The Lost Cause narratives typically portray the Confederacy’s cause as noble and its leadership as exemplars of old-fashioned chivalry, who were defeated by the Union armies through numerical and industrial force that overwhelmed the South’s superior military skill and courage.”

Sanders’ ‘Radical Goal’; At Least $60,000/Year for ‘Every Teacher in America’

Westlake Legal Group gYpPFKE3KhV3EnNzXCEwr6toer1DmiWW_Chcagd5iZ4 Sanders' 'Radical Goal'; At Least $60,000/Year for 'Every Teacher in America' r/politics

As a teacher in America, this is not the next step. This is many steps down the line. I’d love to see this step in my lifetime, but there’s a long road to this being a practical step.

First we need to make it a more desirable profession for those working in it so we don’t keep losing teachers in record numbers. Its not just how much we’re paid, but it’s about getting the respect we deserve as professionals, which includes un-fucking parts of the educational system so that teachers all have planning time which they can use to handle our massive workload. Most teachers have this planning time, but admin often uses our planning time for meetings or other wastes of time, which causes the teachers to have a larger workload that they bring home and is definitely a factor in teacher burnout. This also includes giving teachers more job stability, which is a huge factor for me, as I may be starting a family in the next few years, and teaching does not feel like a stable enough profession for me to raise a family.

Next we need to make it a more desirable profession for people considering going into teaching so that they dont get scared off by all the horror stories. I knew a veteran teacher who didn’t allow her daughter to go to school for teaching because she didn’t want her daughter to have to make her career in a clearly broken system which feels very rigged against impoverished communities. I also knew people that wanted to become teachers until they learned the reality of education through talking with folks working in the field, and decided they would go into a less insane career.

Once we make education MUCH more desirable as a career, once we make it so that people are actually competing to get into schools of education, once we have too many teachers instead of too few, that’s when it’s time to make it harder to become certified as a teacher.
