MAGAts buckling down!

I’m seeing social media blow up with people who had begun to get quiet about their trump support. All of a sudden they are as loud as in 2015. And they are spreading a lot of lies straight from FOX and right wing media. Lots of memes and media clips! Lots!

The Democrats need to be ON THIS with the messaging. As of yesterday!!!!

1. Dems won't get through to the hardcore MAGATs no matter how much messaging they do.

Nothing will change the minds of the true believers. That doesn’t mean the RW message should be ignored or discounted, but don’t expect to change the minds of TFG’s devoted pinheads.

2. I believe all the GOP'er who are reachable already jumped off for 2020

Anyone who still voted for him in 20... will vote for him in 24.

4. Lucky for us we don't need their votes to win the midterms

 

we hold together the coalition that gave Joe Biden the Presidency in 2020, were going to be just fine.

5. First reality smacks them in the face...

....temporarily silencing them because they don't know what to think. Then RW media finds a way to spin it and they parrot that. I've seen it before. They'll sieze on the slightest, most attenuated argument or pure fabrication rather than change their position.

6. I'm not so sure!

I know people who were beginning to feel embarrassed for previously being on the trump train. Now suddenly they are back on full speed ahead!

The way it’s being framed is the government is attacking trump to prevent him from running against Biden! We are afraid because we know trump will win! This is another Russia hoax. Hillary did worse and her house wasn’t raided! Etc etc.

This is energizing his base and that is not a good thing no matter what! He still lost both times but he can win the electoral college with all the cheating and that would be a disaster for everyone!

We have got to put out this fire!!!

7. Democrats and MAGAs are talking in different spaces. The MAGAs won't even hear us.

The Dems are on point with their messaging as guests on MSNBC and probably CNN, which I rarely watch. But the MAGAs aren't tuned in, and they don't trust anything quoted in the Washington Post or NYTimes. And on FOX, guests and anchors are spewing flat out lies, with no Democrats to rebut them.

Edited to add some lies I heard on a recent FOX clip: Trump had declassified everything, and therefore it was ok to keep everything in Maralago. Didn't even mention that there were different levels of classified and that some could only be viewed in specific tightly controlled locations. They didn't even acknowledge that the documents belonged in the National Archives regardless of whether they were classified.

9. As loud as they were in 2015?

I don't remember MAGAs in 2015. Everyone was still laughing at Trump in 2015. MAGA wasn't even a thing.

10. The Magats aren't ever going to admit that they were played for years...

and their world view is flawed.

13. I'm just saying we need MESSAGING

We are always behind the 8 ball! I’m saying we should get in front of this!

When you start seeing people who had “thin blue line” flags on their trucks posting “F@ck the FBI” you know that will spread.

No one thought Clown Trump would win the nomination. But what happened? His base already by recruiting and energizing. It was like a snowball.

This can snowball. If you’re not on social media rebutting some of the lies then at least support those of us who have the stomach (barely 🤮 to try. I know we can’t convince the hard core. But people who don’t know much see and read the arguments. And they need to know facts.
