    it's not like they're all coming in all at once like a tidal wave of mailed ballots. they're still going to have to physically count the ballots on election night anyway???

    nice excuses tho

    I did just write out a 2 paragraph response to this but it's pointless. Anyone who reads the source will have a 'response' on their own, rather than both me and tarannus regurgitating what's written in it

    excuses? lmao im resolute trumps got another 4 years coming, i want the election held as usual on november 3rd. by then im sure the pandemic will have died down and if it hasn't im sure they'll have the appropriate distancing measures in place. you've had hundreds of thousands of people rioting up and down the country these past 3 months, if it's appropriate to do that despite covid then it's appropriate to vote as usual at a station

    so trump explicitly and outright suggests delaying the election on twitter because fraud

    and then on the exact same same day says 'Do I want to see a date change? No.'

    He, like the rest of the Trump supporters, went off the deep end a looooong time ago.

    if you haven't touched the deep end of a public swimming pool at least once you aren't living

    that isn't a metaphor for dipping your toes into deep political extremism or anything - i just really like swimming

    i can see you're struggling here

    he doesn't want to delay the election the same way people don't want to go to work, doesn't mean he won't propose it. he wants the election on november 3rd as normal but is skeptical of fraud in the event of mass mail-in voting, therefore will propose delaying it for x amount of time. doesn't take much to figure out

    does it give you some sort of internal gratification to throw the word rape around with no basis and water down the actual cases just so you can try and fruitlessly score political points? I don't know when you and the left in general will learn that calling everyone you don't like a rapist, fascist, homophobe, bigot or racist won't win you any elections or garner more support.

    real cases are watered down when the most powerful man in america actively goes unpunished for boasting about sexually assaulting women and his accusers are ignored

    10 year old me after watching feminist owned compilation #10

    back on topic
    nothing will come of this as congress has to change the date; mail in ballots are being pushed as fraudulent so election can be contested if biden wins, i still think its 50/50 who wins

    communists do that as well lol

    fucking with democracy isn't something fascists are exclusively guilty of, and doesn't make you one by default if you do that

    if you wanted to label him as anti-democracy a better term might be authoritarian

    fascist and authoritarian are often used interchangeably

    @Shrike resident smartman, what defines fascism?

    as far as im aware using them interchangeably is using them incorrectly

    fascism is totalitarian, rather than authoritarian (again, as far as im aware)

    i think the difference being that with authoritarianism the people can generally live normal lives as long as they don't criticise or subvert the government, while totalitarianism requires the people to be ideologically dedicated to the state and government
