And then, there were none (election deniers)

PHOENIX (AP) — Democrat Katie Hobbs was elected Arizona governor on Monday, defeating an ally of Donald Trump who falsely claimed the 2020 election was rigged and refused to say she would accept the results of her race this year.
 

Hobbs, who is Arizona’s secretary of state, rose to prominence as a staunch defender of the legitimacy of the last election and warned that her Republican rival, former television news anchor Kari Lake, would be an agent of chaos. Hobbs’ victory adds further evidence that Trump is weighing down his allies in a crucial battleground state as the former president gears up for an announcement of a 2024 presidential run.

So, there you have it, folks. All the goofy and illogical clowns who claim Trump won the 2020 election, but was cheated out of victory, have been defeated.  Unfortunately, I bet Trump won't go away.

Ingrained stupidity and die hard race hatred does not go away.

The great news for the state of Arizona is that they don't have a right-wing nut governor.  

 

While the election deniers lost in a major way, let's see if the incoming class of GOP folks will be any more amenable to working with Democrats to get things done on behalf of the American people. 

 

It looks like the GOP will control the House.  The most right-wing nuts of the party have claimed their agenda is to impeach the POTUS, investigate his son, dismantle the 1/6 committee, etc.  IOW, that segment of the party isn't interested in passing laws to help people.  

 

The Senate is still split 50/50 with the VP as the tie-breaker.  While they can pass some legislation without GOP cooperation, the filibuster which requires 60 votes to get anything done could still be an obstacle unless again, incoming GOP Senators are willing to reach across the aisle. 

 

The next two (2) years will be interesting.  It could either be anything from lifting the Orange stench to running in place and doing nothing to render the POTUS a lame duck. 😎

I'm sorry, you're absolutely right I meant 2016!

I think both elections were stolen by the Republicans.
But the thing about it is......the Democrats for the most part didn't even put up a fight to get the White House.

There was CLEAR and MASSIVE voter fraud and suppression in both elections, especially in 2000.....and the Democrats just "moved on".

I remember back in 2000 during some sort of tally in Congress Jesse Jackson's son who was a Congressman INSISTED on calling Al Gore "Mr President" and Al Gore reprimanded him over it.
The Black Democrats....back in 2000....were actually ready to fight it out but it was those racist hypocrites in the party who held them back and suggested we ignore the obvious injustices and let G Dubya take the office.

The same as what happened in Florida and Georgia recently......just shut up and move on.

My problem with Democrats is that they don't put up a fight for much of anything even when they are the party in power.😎

That's true.
And one of the reasons they won't is because a large percentage of them are INSINCERE and aren't really down for the Democrat agenda but are really Republicans/Right-wing infiltrators who just join the party to monitor it and neutralize progress in it.

Another problem is the tent of the Democrat party is way too big.
Too many different groups with different agenda that conflict with eachother.

That's why I often type that both parties are two sides of the same coin especially when it comes to AfroAmericans. 

 

The GOP flat out doesn't  doesn't give a f8ck about AfroAmericans and the Democrats treat us with benign neglect. 

 

The Democrats beg for AfroAmerican votes during election time.  Then, they skeet on the sheet and fish-tail out of the parking lot after the deed is done.  They've been f8cking AfroAmericans for a long time. 😎

But then you have to look at what exactly do AfroAmericans DEMAND of either party.

Black folks are good for getting mad because other folks won't "treat them right" when we have it well within our power to treat OURSELVES better than any other group of people possibly can.

Take the Reparation thing for example....

It's well within our power to FORCE the Democrat party to take on Reparations as one of the TOP 3 essential platforms of any agenda of the party.
We can demand every major city and nearly every major state to adopt Reparations as one of the central movements like you see those rainbow flags flying around all over the place.
But instead, niggaz think it's took much or too extreme to demand that White folks submit to paying us Reparations, but spend the rest of the time mumbling and grumbling about how "everybody else" get's their needs met.

The Democrat party just like the Republican party is only as good as WE make it for ourselves.
If we join these parties and CHOOSE to take the back seat and go for the ride while letting others take the steering wheel, then we can't blame the party....we have to blame ourselves.
The Green Party and Socialist party won't be any different.

AfroAmericans need to change their mentality from constant "victim" to VICTOR.

Oh, I know as AfroAmericans we haven't demanded anything of the Democratic party.   Just loyally going along with their program.

 

Reparations should definitely be a top 3 agenda items for AfroAmericans.   

 

That would let AfroAmericans know where we stand both with the Democratic Party and within the system of white supremacy.  

 

That victim mentality definitely leaves AfroAmericans afraid to demand or ask for anything from the Democrats because they really don't want to hear the "h8ll no, we're not going to entertain those issues."

 

But, AfroAmericans cannot remain loyal to a political party that has little or no incentive to do anything on their behalf.  Osmosis and wishing doesn't work either.😎

Part of the "victim mentality" that I often speak about is feeling that you have no control over the institutions that you belong to.

For example.......
In the different jobs I've worked I try to stress to Black co-workers.......stop saying "they" hired you and "they" might fire you and "they" don't want to treat you right.
Because we both know the "they" you're talking about are White people and you feel they OWN the damn job and have the fight to hire you, fire you, mistreat you, and there's nothing you can do about it but put up with it or leave.

But what if you took up a more realistic mentality that since YOU are now working for this company that you are now actually PART OF IT?

What if you start saying WE instead of THEY???

What if when a White co-worker disrespects you or a White Supervisor mistreats you, instead of crying you DEMAND justice by going to HR with a "knowing" that as a MEMBER of this firm/company they have an obligation to submit to your demands??

It changes you perspective of things and you actually get more success than you expect because you no longer see yourself as an outsider or victim but as a legitimate and well respected member of that firm/community who has just as much right to a job and position there as any White person.


And that SAME mentality should apply in any organization we join as AfroAmericans!

If we join the Democrat Party we should see ourselves no just a outsiders grateful that "they" let us in "their" party....and not even as just members....but join with the intention of STEERING the party in the direction WE see fit!

How can I get mistreated or taken for granted in an organization I control?????

Once we have a seat at the table we need to start DEMANDING that others pay attention to the goals and agenda we place on the menu!
