For the white people? What about the Asian-Americans, blacks, and Hispanics/Latinx who voted for Biden? What about the 80 million Americans who voted for Biden? Does the minority have to understand the majority?
"In order to understand what separates us as people, we have to understand what they're going through—their beliefs, their guiding principles," says @szirinsky. "We have to understand." https://t.co/zdEnR9iIhl pic.twitter.com/xsBJ5DKnb9— Michael Kruse (@michaelkruse) November 20, 2020
But neither do I have to understand them. Because I literally don't understand them. Rick Wilson is typically hyperbolic in his criticism (and he's speaking of the Giuliani press conference), but he more lucidly and accurately describes people like the man who called Limbaugh: “like a cabal of mad priests of a dead religion worshipping their fallen god." How else do you explain a wish to "die" for a President? What madness is this? I have sympathy for the mad; but I don't have to find some sanity in them. I can find some humanity; but I don't have to find a place for them at the table of governance, or consider their madness a "principle."A distraught supporter of President Donald Trump on Friday told right-wing talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh that he was willing to “die” for the president.The caller began by saying he would “try to hold myself together and not get emotional” before choking up and spilling his guts about how upset he was about the Republican Georgia secretary of state admitting that President-elect Joe Biden had won his state.“Trump and you are all we have left, Rush!” he said. “We’ve spent our lives voting for these people because they’re not [Democrats]. And we just can’t do it anymore! We’re tired of being stabbed in the back!”
