Why do we tolerate this? Anyone?

Even when Trump is 'acquitted' by Republicans - who know Biden won but kowtow to Trump's base - America can begin to get these sedition-supporting, unAmerican m-fers out of our government and ensure they fade into obscurity except for being branded as traitors in textbooks of the future.

"We" tolerate this Snoofy,
because Republotards have no balls anymore,
and can't seem to remember right from wrong,
along with what is real vs. what is fake.

(and by "We", I meant Republicans won't
do a damned thing about cleaning up their
own Party. So as usual, the rest of us
have to tolerate their crap and clean up
their messes...)

Democracies cannot function, when one
Party throws out the rule book on norms...

Agreed, if a word is misspelled in a headline should get a two week ban from posting stories.

Someone should be along soon with a whataboutism.

Ha ha. It's all fun and games until someone suggests that Der Dotard be impeached, or left off Twitter, or laughed out of DC, or that he cheats at golf like he cheats at marriage, or that his suits are baggy, or that he should be locked up. Then, turnabout is NOT fair play...

What I want to know is what sort of person of higher morals finds themselves excusing this kind of talk and voting for her? Is it some misguided fear or a lack of morals?

"What I want to know is what sort of person of higher morals finds themselves excusing this kind of talk and voting for her?"

Their claim to the moral high ground was always bovine excrement, Democrats never had the nerve to call them out on it in a meaningful way.

Democrats never had the nerve to call them out on it in a meaningful way.

And there's so much more than I find deplorable in his campaign: the way that he cozies up to white supremacist, makes racist attacks, calls women pigs, mocks people with disabilities - you can't make this up. He wants to round up and deport 16 million people, calls our military a disaster. And every day he says something else which I find so personally offensive, but also dangerous. You know, the idea of our country is so rooted in continuing progress that we make together. Our campaign slogan is not just words. We really do believe that we are stronger together. We really do believe that showing respect and appreciation for one another lifts us all up. ...

We are living in a volatile political environment. You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic - you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people " now how 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks - they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.

May I draw your attention to today's news:
Tucker Carlson Rails Against White Nationalist Crackdown, Warns Viewers: That's You

Carlson, who has a long history of using his prime time platform to promote racism, began his screed by disparagingly describing Schiff as "America's new grand inquisitor."

He aired footage of Schiff saying lawmakers had been urging the FBI and Department of Homeland Security "for some time" to "raise the priority to domestic terrorism, to white nationalism, as it threatens the country."

"We're gonna continue sounding the alarm and make sure that they're devoting the resources, the time, the attention, just as we did after 9/11 to the threat from international terrorism, we need to give the same priority and urgency to domestic terrorism," Schiff added.

Carlson responded:

"Got that? Vote the wrong way, and you are a jihadi. You thought you were an American citizen with rights and just a different view. No, you're a jihadi. And we are going to treat you the way we treated those radicals after 9/11, the way we treated bin Laden. Get in line pal, this is a war on terror."

Carlson urged his viewers to "keep in mind as you listen to people talk like this" that "they're talking about American citizens here."

"They're talking about you," he added, appearing to acknowledge that white supremacists watch his show, as many Twitter users noted.

Carlson in the past has claimed white supremacy is "a hoax" and "not a real problem in America," suggested immigrants are making the U.S. "dirtier," name-checked a white nationalist website on-air and used an on-screen graphic echoing white supremacist talking points.

The right wing media bubble takes every valid criticism of outright wrong directed toward rightwing extremism and broadcasts that Democrats are painting ALL REPUBLICANS with the same brush. This is why it is so hard to make such arguments stick when faced with the power and reach of the epistemically-closed right wing media ecosystem that take valid criticisms and turns them into reverse attacks on Democrats.

This doesn't mean that Dems should stop, but when doing so causes more division than coherence around the abhorrence of certain Republicans, what does one do to change this dynamic?

Can you imagine being one of the people she indicated should be executed and serving in Congress with her? Awwwwkward. How do you politely avoid the topic during informal collegial interactions?

1/ So I was doing a little reading and writing about QAnon-friendly freshman GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene today, and as loopy as I knew she was, what I read today was far worse than I ever imagined. Let me summarize:
