Which is what they say every time a white woman won't go along with the Left-wing nonsense of the day.

And I see that Biden has now shifted (I don't know if it's from his handlers or if he went off the rez) to "It's about who counts the votes" regarding this relating to "voters rights", which just means that they want to have control over who counts the votes. Not sure that this move will play their way outside of the social media loudmouths.

Biden wasn't happy about it, and managed to channel Stalin, then admit "it's about election subversion"

On a related subject, ballot drop boxes are illegal in WI, at least until the appeal.

When I was watching this clip, I was thinking two things -

1. Does Biden have ANY idea that he's sounding an awful lot like Stalin when he says this?

and

2. Do any Republicans have the wit to point that out in a public setting?
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

We are not too many slips and trips from political assassinations and it will be done by the left and people like Sinema will be the example.

It would seem to be a long way off, but it sure looks like there are a lot of people in politics who 1) behave as if the ends justify the means, and 2) have very little ability to see the consequences of their actions.  That is a recipe for a lot of bad stuff if the wrong people get into a position to make decisions and have them carried out.

Kyrsten Sinema didn't kill herself
