Whole lotta law and order on both sides of the aisle.  Burning buildings will do that.  There is a lot of interest to protect and they are going to do it. If you like social justice, research the history and platform of ALL the candidates.   Who knows maybe you will end up voting for a woman President or something.

That was what went wrong through this presidential term. All the folks who disagreed ran away, leaving him to do whatever he wanted, no matter how wrong (nepotism, self-serving, improper, un-American, even illegal) without significant pushback.

Shame on those who quit, or who sat idly by while the wheels came off. And, even if you don’t agree that the wheels came off, you can possibly get behind the idea that governance is a dance between opposing ideas who find common ground so that the nation - not one party - moves towards a better life.

Getting a little ahead of ourselves. First we need to get Biden/Harris elected, then repair our government & democracy over the first 4 years. 

Biden having 'mental issues' is a Trump's wet dream, which hasn't taken hold beyond his lemmings that go with whatever he says (even if it's Yo Semites!, Thighland, or how the 1917 pandemic that started in 1918 likely ended WWII).

Joe Biden calls Trump the country's 'first' racist president



"The way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening,” the former vice president said. “No sitting president has ever done this. Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed. They’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”

Jeezus Joe, you knew a lot of them personally.

Yeah, except that Congress in general, and McConnell in particular, have abdicated any semblance of actual governing. Any Democrat-sponsored policy, no matter how trivial, no matter how much public support it has, dies under Mitch's gavel. Sure there's always been partisanship, but McConnell has taken it to the extremes. Which prevents anything from moving forward.

Granted the KKK apparently hasn't officially endorsed Trump but Duke, a former Klan leader has endorsed Trump again in 2020.

David Duke: Trump win a great victory for 'our people'







"Why we voted for Donald Trump": David Duke explains the white supremacist Charlottesville protests



By Libby Nelson@libbyanelson

Updated Aug 12, 2017, 3:16pm EDT

David Duke, the former KKK grand wizard, is unambiguous about what Saturday’s alt-right and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, means to him: It’s the fulfillment of President Donald Trump’s vision for America.

“We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said from the rally, calling it a “turning point.” “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.”
The Charlottesville rally is nominally about the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee rather than anything in the Trump administration. But Duke was an enthusiastic supporter of Trump as far back as the Republican primary in 2016, and Trump’s reluctance to disavow that support was, briefly, a big issue.

Duke has remained a faithful Trump supporter since then, insisting that the president-elect’s policies line up with the former KKK leader’s vision for America.




 

You're equating the impressive civil rights work & influence of Leo Terrell to ... the white supremacist David Duke with his infinitesimal group of illiterates?

You just the lost the argument.  And you win a prize.




Oh, KK. I can't give you a Ronald McDonald gif this time. You're living proof that there's no cure for stupid. Maybe you should volunteer for Kanye's campaign!



1. For every good celebrity endorsement of a candidate, you'll find at least one bad one. You think Leo Terrell's a good endorsement for Trump? White supremacist David Duke wants Trump again.

2. Leo Terrell's done "impressive civil rights work"? That's news to the NAACP. From Wikipedia:


Terrell became a member of the NAACP in 1990 and did pro bono legal work for the organization. After Terrell expressed support for Carolyn Kuhl, a judge nominated by President George W. Bush to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit whose nomination was filibustered in the U.S. Senate, Terrell left the NAACP and accused the organization of "bullying" him out. NAACP Washington, D.C. office director Hilary O. Shelton responded: "He’s not an NAACP lawyer, not even a former NAACP lawyer. He’s done volunteer work for us, which we appreciate. But when he takes a position that is diametrically opposite from our position, he’s not speaking for us."<12>


3. Here's Leo on Hannity, whining about how the Democratic Party has left him. If he really thinks Trump is going to push social justice or civil rights measures better than the Democratic party, Leo's a goddamned fool. And to call Joe Biden a socialist is beyond laughable.

4. Again, going off the Hannity clip: Leo Terrell sounds a lot like a right-wing apologist. Hardly someone who's typical of civil rights lawyers or Black voters. But don't just take my word for it: 


Know who’s not convinced of how much Trump has done for black Americans? Black Americans.

This focus on black voters has been a repeated theme in his tweets and in his campaign’s outreach as well. It also hasn’t made any dent in his level of support among black Americans.

I can say this with certainty because The Washington Post, in partnership with the polling firm Ipsos, polled black Americans in January and this month, asking questions evaluating views of the country and of the president. Between those two polls, despite the barrage of rhetoric from Trump in the interim, views about the president haven’t changed significantly at all.

In January, 7 percent of black Americans viewed Trump with approval. Three-quarters viewed him with strong disapproval. This month, 9 percent approve of Trump and three-quarters view him with strong disapproval.

In January, 83 percent of black Americans told us that they viewed Trump as racist. This month, we asked a slightly different question: Is Trump biased against black people? Eighty-seven percent of respondents said he is.

There’s certainly an argument to be made that Trump’s repeated mentions of what he has done for black Americans is meant not to convince them to vote for him but to convince white voters more broadly that he isn’t racist or biased. If that’s the case, it’s an effort that almost has to be going better than any effort to earn more black votes.

At the time of that January poll, Biden wasn’t yet his party’s presumptive nominee. He was one of more than a dozen Democrats vying for that role, which he secured in early March. Our January poll asked about a theoretical contest between him and Trump, in which Biden prevailed by a wide margin among black registered voters — 78 points. Only 4 percent picked Trump, though 6 percent said they wouldn’t cast a vote at all.

The June poll asked the question again, without explicit options for not voting or preference for another candidate — both of which were included in January given the ongoing primary. (Five percent said they would vote for another candidate at that point.) Now, Biden leads by 87 points. Trump still gets only 5 percent of the vote, an insignificant difference from January.

How many black Americans don’t plan on voting? We asked about that, too. In January, 8 in 10 said they were probably going to vote or were certain to vote. In June, the figure was essentially unchanged.

The extent to which Trump has failed to convince black Americans of the success of his presidency can be summed up in two poll questions, one from each of our two polls this year. The central argument he has made to black voters for giving him a second term is that he will steward robust economic growth, an argument that got kneecapped more than a little by the coronavirus pandemic.

In January, we asked respondents how much credit Trump deserved for the then-low unemployment in the black community. About three-quarters said Trump deserved only some or hardly any credit for the unemployment rate.

This month, we asked a more specific question: Who did respondents think would do a better job on the economy? Despite Trump’s focus on the issue, black voters said they trusted Biden more than Trump on the economy by an 11-to-1 margin. Eighty-six percent of respondents said the economy would be a very important issue in their vote for president. Grim numbers for a president who has repeatedly focused on the economy as a sales pitch.
