Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 07, 2021

The political arm of House Republicans is deploying a prechecked box to enroll donors into repeating monthly donations -- and using ominous language to warn them of the consequences if they opt out: "If you UNCHECK this box, we will have to tell Trump you're a DEFECTOR." ... The prechecked box is the same tactic and tool that resulted in a surge of refunds and credit card complaints when used by Trump's campaign last year, according to an investigation published by The New York Times over the weekend.

The Trump operation issued more than $122 million in refunds in the 2020 cycle, which was 10.7 percent of what Trump's campaign, the Republican National Committee and their shared accounts raised.

Idolaters are pathetic especially when they're mammonites.

They're afraid Trump will find out they didn't give money?

They are now clearly confusing Trump with God.

This has got to be fake.

Redial I wish it was a fake but why wouldn't the Republican Party do this?

Anybody who falls for republican shenanigans is an idiot. If you can't see that your being fleeced then you really are a sheep and deserve to get clipped.

"we'll tell Trump"

LOL ~ Is that a threat or a promise?

All this tells me is that Trump's 'second childhood' is contagious.

'Cause the last time I heard "I'm gonna tell on you" was in gradeschool.

You tell me.

Dear Leader must be honored by draining your bank account. Its what he would do. Maybe. Probably not. Yeah, no way.

They've already had to give back $122 million, but this "no-interest" loan and tactic is good enough for the GOP to continue to use. They are using the same tactic on their current fundraising emails.

Oh I don't doubt they would do it... the message just looks fake.

They wouldn't refer to Lewzer as "Trump", they'd call him "Rightful President for Life and God-Lord Donald J. Trump" or something like that.

You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
-Exodus 20: 3-6

The Republican party is a criminal enterprise.

This is just gross.

Not only the deference to Trump but the cult-like demands of uniformity.

Defection. They sound more and more like dictators of the 50s and 60s each day.

"They sound more and more like dictators"

Well, that IS all part of the master plan, isn't it? McConnell wouldn't want to be left out of THAT gig, would he?

The absence of Trump doesn't mean they've given up on the "master plan."

This shows how little the GQP thinks of the cult. Unlike the Drumpf Campaign's pre-checked boxes that relied on the trust and lack of time or interest on the part of cult members to read the fine print, this shaming technique is intended to fleece the mentally challenged because they are the only ones who would check those boxes because of this kind of pressure. This is today's GQP, gouging the mentally challenged in the name of a traitor to this country.

Which is illegal, or certainly should be. The requirement should be to opt-IN, not in, unless you opt-OUT.

But...we now see the real reason why Trump "loves the uneducated".

These are the same people who call the rest of us (i.e., the "radical left") sheep because we get vaccinated.

So the trumpers have a choice-be a plain old defective (and happy about it) or be a defector? God what a group.

I'm not defending it, just saying that it's slightly better than telling some mentally ill MAGAt that they're going to tell Dotard that you're a commie sympathiser if you don't check that box and allow yourself to be fleeced like the rest of the sheep.

What box do I have to uncheck to tell Fat Donnie he's an ---- traitor.

Conservatives are so easily manipulated using symbolism and catch phrases. Its hilarious watching them get bilked for billions and then complain welfare recipients are taking advantage.

This is similar what Obama was getting to when he talked about clinging to guns and religion.

LMFAO. Conservative are so dumb. And suckers too. But they're too stupid to realize it, lol.
