Not voting for Joe Biden is the fundamental description of white supremacy? Wow, just wow.
Just like not voting for Republicans is Socialism. These guys are masters of propaganda. Dems need to learn to respond with pithy, easily memorable phrases. "Trump hates you." "Make America Decent Again." "Vote for Biden - he won't try to kill you for money"
The biggest mistake you can make online is to respond to something like this with a four paragraph thesis on the importance of norms in avoiding the slide into authoritarianism that other democracies have suffered. If you go past four words, you lost the argument.
I agree with this - there are two different media - one where analysis works and one where quick answers work.
I have been working on my neighbor, an ER doc. I have long conversations with him. He voted for Biden (as did his wife). Quick piffy answers wouldn't have worked.
But online - go past a couple of sentences and people tune out.
And my favorite: You can't fix stupid but you can vote it out...
