Yep. They're hiding their true intentions behind the "True the Vote" label

Trying to sound legitimate or harmless, or both.


ALWAYS look behind the curtain.

It also shows how desperate for power they are.

Now officially endorsing violence to get your way. Hurt or maybe kill if you think you have to. Is this what they’ve come to?

This is fucking nuts.

The Devil you say, Junior?

By any means necessary.

But it still is a GOOD one.

And it’s short ‘n’ sweet. Doesn’t need explaining.

October 31, 2022

That's what we need MORE of.

More shrewd messaging. And a shitload of it. On high-rotation repeat.

Good point.

These bastards are VERY skilled at wordplay, and ways to imply what they want without coming right out and saying it.

They want a 4. So they’ll give you a 2. And then they’ll give you another 2. And then you’ll subconsciously add 2 and 2 together to get 4.

A practical application of the “without firing a shot” thing.

No wonder he had a hammer.

The next step would be to call or write CNN

and THANK them for having HIM on the air.

Or go online to CNN’s sites, and his, and post a thank-you.

If only the bad guys are making any noise, or weighing in, in any way:
- that’s the only side that’ll get heard.
- those are the only talking points that’ll get repeated or shared.
- that’s the only commentary that’ll gain any attention -Or traction.
- that’s the only way to shape public opinion - and shape it OUR way.
- that’s the way to support and present solidarity to others who may feel timid about speaking up if they think they’re alone in their leanings, or that nobody else gives a damn.

Make NOISE!!! No one will hear, see, read, or care about your opinion if you don’t make it known.

If nothing else, PLEASE understand that your remaining silent only gives the opposition more room, more attention, and more clout. They’ll happily take whatever open or uncontested space they find.

Unfortunately the time to do much to prevent this ran out when Pox Noise arrived.

It provided a home, a safe haven, a perception of legitimacy, and MASSIVE amplification of lies and poisonous-but-appealing talking points that gave plenty of “ammo” to the hate crowd. It gave them a PLATFORM.

I can’t help seeing Pox Noise and its many little clones and believers as the beginning of the end.

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
