Democratic Convention Post-Mortem

2020 August 21
by bc3b

Well, the Democrats’ 2020 convention is in the books.

You have to cut them a little slack because it was the first virtual national political convention, but geez ….

Let’s look at some of the lowlights:

  • Most of the primary speakers were dinosaurs from the past (the Clintons, the Obamas, the Carters, John Kerry), etc.
  • John Kasich and other supposed Republicans blasted Trump and endorsed Biden
  • The Democrats shied away from issues and spent most of the time bashing the “Bad Orange Man”
  • There were technical difficulties
  • Most of the controversial sessions were held in the afternoon and not covered by the media
  • Lie-A-Watha participated in the Native Americans chatroom and Stacey Abrams participated in the Democratic Governors Roundtable
  • The Democrats removed “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance
  • Hunter Biden, who Americans know all too well, and Ashley Biden, who has been arrested several times for drug possession and throwing bottles at cops, vouched for their daddy’s honesty. That’s kind of like Al Capone being a character witness for John Dillinger
  • As expected, there was a lot about discrimination and inequality and nothing about crime, rioting and looting
  • Television viewership was significantly below 2016

If you are Trump and the people managing the GOP convention, how would you take advantage of the Democrats’ convention and what would you build into the GOP convention and the 2020 campaign? Keep in mind that the media is going to twist, distort and attack everything you do.

    As I have said before, I suspect (and hope) that Nick Sandmann’s presentation will be the beginning of an all-out war against the media. There is no possible way to defend the coverage CNN and other leading media organizations gave to the boys from Covington Catholic. Two days as a lead story on CNN for boys who may have possibly been rude to a 62-year old man. Add to that the fact that bloggers, not the media, discovered that Nathan Phillips never served in Vietnam.

    The media is going to do everything possible to destroy Trump and protect Biden. Why hold back?

    the media will now try to destroy Nick Sandmann all over again.

    EVERYTHING that happened during the Democrat “Convention” was described as: “Gripping”, “Moving”, “Epic, etc.

    EVERYTHING that happens during the RNC Convention will be described as “Vile”, “Hateful” and Hurtful”…at best

    Watch this video. THIS is the Left in full display. They CANNOT abide any opinion or position but THEIRS.

    The two women who assault this family, destroy their signs, and steal their hats should be arrested. Ah, but they won’t be because the media considers violence against Conservatives to be “for the greater good”. Even violence against children.

    The message the Left is sending is clear: If you DARE to show support for anyone or anything EXCEPT what THEY approve of, you WILL face consequences.

    They have made your choices incredibly clear:

    The option of “I just wanna be left alone” has been taken off the table.

    5, agree.
    When the CA Dems had a state convention, I recall that you basically couldn’t get admittance unless you pledged to vote for free healthcare for illegals. If your mother comes to visit from Mexico, you are covered. If your mother comes to visit from Pennsylvania, you’re on your own.

    There’s LOTS more bad stuff Dems plan to spring on us. did thet ‘fess up to any of it?

    If I’m a Repub strategist, I’ll focus on:
    1) Positive–the Trump economy, stronger military, the Wall
    2) Negative– Biden’s had decades in gov’t to make things better, no Dem denunciation of riots, Hunter’s corruption (and ask WHY doesn’t the media ask any questions), it sucks to be Black in a Dem-controlled city, Dem governors shutdowns

    Rush agrees, the Dems didn’t talk about issues hardly at all.

    Limbaugh said, “They’ve tried impeachment. They’ve tried Mueller. Look at what they didn’t mention last night. They didn’t talk about border walls. They didn’t talk about immigration. These are issues people care about! They didn’t talk about security. Personal, individual, national, they didn’t talk about it.

    “They didn’t talk about the need to appoint judges, to win so that they get to pick the judges. They didn’t talk about Kavanaugh. Wouldn’t it have been ideal for Kamala Harris to revive what she did, how she deserved to be on this ticket because she was the ringleader of the get-Kavanaugh movement? And wouldn’t it have been a great time to explain to America why again Kavanaugh shouldn’t be on the Supreme Court?”

    Cause and effect — — Strategically unsound. AntiFA can flood the zone in an urban area currently. Once there are no targets in the zone they need to expand out to the ‘burbs. Problem with that is unless they have an expanding population of personnel they will become weaker and weaker attempting to ‘infect’ more territory.

    The diseased cabal of the Left/media/Democrats has finally achieved their long sought goal of the Incivility Singularity, where EVERY action they take, no matter how heinous, let alone rude or uncivil, is by definition “acceptable”. Even laudable, as long as those being pummeled are expressing ANY opinion other than the “Approved” Leftist one.

    THEY are so obviously CORRECT (and virtuous) in all their views, and all who disagree with them so obviously WRONG (and EVIL) in theirs. So shut up and obey…but at least shut up (and go somewhere else to do it, dammit).

    Actually, you’re not even allowed to simply “shut up”…because your SILENCE if VIOLENCE.

    This (very slightly paraphrased) quote from George Sarton describes the actions of the Left PERFECTLY:

    ==> “It is sometimes claimed that intolerance is the fruit of conviction. If one be absolutely certain that one’s views are right and all others wrong, it seems criminal to permit one’s neighbors’ obvious error and perdition. I am tempted to think, however, that intolerance often is the result not of conviction but rather of doubt and insecurity.”

    EVERY day you can find stories where anyone DARING to oppose ANY position of the Left (in even the slightest way) is “canceled”…or even assaulted.

    You can walk down any street in America wearing a “Joe Biden” hat, a “BLM” t-shirt, or an “Obama” hoodie…and be secure that no one will bother you. Try wearing a “MAGA” hat in any major city, or sporting a “BLUE Lives Matter” t-shirt…and you WILL be assaulted.

    The INTOLERANCE of the Left is quite obviously NOT the result not of conviction, but rather of doubt and insecurity. Otherwise they would be able to defend their positions, instead of using mobs and violence to suppress all discourse.

    WannaRen Ransomware Operators Offer Key
    (August 19, 2020)
    A ransomware group responsible for spreading WannaRen ransomware earlier this year has offered up the malware’s decryption key. WannaRen infected tens of thousands of computers belonging to Chinese and Taiwanese companies and home users. WannaRen uses the EternalBlue exploit, which WannaCry operators used in May 2017. Within a week, the malware spread more widely than the operators had intended, so they contacted a cybersecurity company and offered the master decryption key.

    VA – Mandatory Vaccination coming

    “Virginia state law gives the Commissioner of Health the authority to mandate immediate immunizations during a public health crisis if a vaccine is available. Health officials say an immunization could be released as early as 2021.

    Dr. Oliver says that, as long as he is still the Health Commissioner, he intends to mandate the coronavirus vaccine.”

    Good! Maybe the Right ought to start a campaign of donating cheap cameras so that everything is filmed then forwarded to the police. If that is all it takes to shut them down, we ought to do it.

    Woman Facing Robbery Charge In Anti-Trump Incident Involving Seven-Year-Old Child

    Wilmington Police have arrested a 21-year-old woman in connection with an offensive touching and robbery investigation, police said Saturday.

    Officials said on August 20 at approximately 8:08 p.m., police were dispatched to the 600 block of South Justison Street in reference to an offensive touching incident involving a juvenile victim.

    An investigation determined that the incident involved a robbery with two female suspects, according to police. Through reviewing video footage capturing the incident, police identified the first female suspect as 21-year-old Olivia Winslow, officials said.

    Winslow was taken into custody on August 21, and has been charged with the following offenses:

    Robbery (Second Degree)
    Conspiracy (Second Degree)
    Endangering the Welfare of a Child

    Winslow was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 11. She was released on her own recognizance.

    44 – Nor was impeachment that they were so desperate for in February, nor was any number of dozen things you think they would bring up, instead it void of any substance or even appearance of substance what so ever.

    46 – I doubt the game is really based around those topics and it association to today (activation doesn’t remotely have the balls for that), nice trailer but it’s not necessarily reflective of the game, more than likely once again it’ll just be pretty mindless rinse and repeat shooter.

    In CA we have “jungle primaries”. If the top two vote getters for an office are Dems, then the two Dems are on the ballot. Because CaGOP is dysfunctional, that happens a lot.

    This guy’s comment cracked me up, but there’s some truth to it! Actually, Newsom ran against a RINO, I believe. Still funny.

    “Both Kamala Harris and Gruesome Newsom were winners in California’s “Top Two” primaries that have made our general elections into contests between two Democrats with no GOPs on the ballot. In both cases, the general elections pitted a NorCal Democrat against a SoCal Democrat.

    My theory is that NorCal voters, being more familiar with the NorCal candidates, cast their ballots for the SoCal candidates, and vice versa.

    And since there are more people in SoCal, the NorCal candidates won.”

    Our parish has 2,200 families and we are limited to 120 at each of two masses. You have to RSVP.

    Since this started I have been watching a 9 AM streamed mass from St. Joseph’s, a small church in Ironton, OH (on the Kentucky border). Constantine XI on Sparta Report alerted me to it. Older, more traditional priest.

    I decided since I’d been watching the live stream every Sunday, I thought I should contribute. Called on August 3 to get mailing information and spoke with Fr. Huffman himself. Sent a check that day and it still hasn’t been cashed so I presume they have not received it yet. My guess is that the postal unions are having a slow down.

    65: He’s smoked too much, happens on plenty of topics he discusses. Adams is a pretty smart guy on topics that are in his domain(s), but incredibly naive sometimes (or pretends to be for persuasion purposes ) on others not in his domain. Not a stupid guy, but some of the things he says are really fucking stupid sometimes.
