Someone should point out to her that the US is currently 57.8% white, 18.7% Hispanic, 12.4% Black, and 6% Asian.

Wait until we're 6 months or so from the 2024 election. Think it's insane now? You ain't seen anything yet.

Joe is at what 40% approval right now?
Can't believe there are that many people that stupid. Wait, yes I can.
Anyway I guess that means 60% are extremist

He gave an "Extremists!" speech last night. CNN apparently later edited the background to pink to not make it look so sinister.

Well, stealing something from the link... if you approve of Biden's performance I guess you are an extremist.

By his own definition, Biden himself is an extremist since ALL recent polls show his approval UNDER 50%.

Biden is endangering democracy itself!

Which (putting my tinfoil on) I've been thinking about. They make these outrageous statements, then people like me (I've said it here in the last few weeks) off the cuff will say something like, "Well, that's one way to get civil war". Absolutely not calling for civil war, just shaking our heads at the actual extremism coming from Biden, etc.

Then DOJ and Homeland run their search bots through websites like ours and general social media, find comments like mine, then the WH press secretary holds press conferences talking about all the intelligence they have on dangerous extremists arming for war against the US.

They seem determined to split the population, to the point where civil war would be inevitable. What makes them think that they'll come out ahead? Are they planning on nuking Nebraska? That doesn't seem to be off the table. Are they planning on bringing in outside troops? I could see that... And that won't end well at all...

Man this administration is quickly becoming Biden the divider.
When is the last time this country had a leader that wasn't a divider? Reagan? I'm not saying everyone loved him but he seemed to expand the coalition (bring people together). Since then the strategy seems to be "energizing the base" instead of expanding it.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

So we're going to sit here and pretend that Republicans want that list, or move on it when they're in charge?  Really?

Are you under the impression that Biden was specifically and only referring to Republican politicians when he was describing extremists?  I understood him to be referring to Republican voters and supporters.

Given that context, yes, I think that is what many or most Republican voters want.

It is irrelevant who "wins". The destruction will be the same. The point is to destroy the USA as as the last impediment to world government.

I am willing to concede that a large number of Republican voters want that list.  If that's true, voting for Republican politicians doesn't seem to be advancing their desires reliably.

Sure he's not governing well, but don't kid yourselves that getting someone from your tribe in there will somehow bring about concrete movement on the "MAGA list".

No argument.

Again, you have completely missed the context.  That list was put forward as a description of the platform and the beliefs of the voters that Biden was labeling extremist.  Your tangent about Republican politicians not accomplishing those goals is accurate but a total non sequitur.

Appears we've reached the point where in their minds you're either a moderate democrat (far left in the real world) or you're an extreme far right fascist enemy of the state with no in between
