Leftist censorship regarding 2020 election.
The video literally BEGINS with two conflicting statements. First, that Donald Trump is the president elect. Second, that, "but the election was stolen from him". Well, which is it???? Is he the president elect or did he lose an election which was "stolen" from him? Because it can't be both, can it?
Christ, this makes me literally sick. You idiots have gone completely, irretrievably mad. More willing to believe random strangers on Youtube than a total world census of experts and journalists, simply because they nurture and excuse your existing prejudice, paranoia and bias.
Economic Divisions are Driving Political Ones
It’s become clear over the past four years that, unless we address the root economic causes of many American voters’ anger and social alienation, we will remain a divided nation, with many remaining susceptible to the message of people like Donald Trump. In much of left-behind rural America, and still struggling communities that dot the industrial Midwest, anxieties about the economic future interact with a perceived loss of identity, status and control in a changing society. These dynamics generate a toxic brew of cravings for a return to a simpler and ordered time and resentments of “others,” i.e., coastal elites and immigrants.
From afar, it appears that Joe Biden rebuilt the “Blue Wall” of Midwest industrial states this year and won over the white, working-class voters that powered Trump to the presidency in 2016. But Biden’s narrow victory in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania was made possible only by an historically high anti-Trump voter turnout, particularly among African Americans in cities. But look closer and the reality is that working-class -whites from still struggling manufacturing towns and farm country doubled down on Trumpism, more excited than ever over Trump’s mix of economic nostalgia, nationalism and nativism.
The issue seems to be that struggling rural, white, blue collar, workers feel disenfranchised. They see minority groups that make up less than 13% of the population get a lot of attention on the media while their plight is ignored.
Cities have become ‘the deciding factor in nearly every matter of national consequence.’
Even as America grew more polarized by geography and density over the past four years, culminating in the 2020 election with one of the greatest urban-rural partisan divides in our history, this country’s metropolitan areas have consolidated power to become the deciding factor in nearly every matter of national consequence. And no wonder: America’s 50 largest metros alone account for half the country’s population, more than half its votes and two-thirds of its economy. Even as population growth slowed in some core cities over the past four years, their surrounding suburbs still boomed, in many cases becoming large cities in their own right. And rather than fleeing to the countryside during the Covid-19 pandemic, people leaving big metros have mostly moved to other big metros, such as Atlanta, Austin, Nashville and Tampa.
The result? Today’s most pressing issues, from the pandemic to civil unrest and economic distress, are all playing out in our cities and suburbs. The Trump era saw mayors become national figures for tackling these local issues. Because urban areas account for a disproportionate share of the nation’s economy and population, their recovery fuels the rest of the country. We must identify barriers to and opportunities for growth—from addressing fiscal woes and onerous housing rules to restoring good quality of life and schooling—not only for the sake of urban dwellers, but for all Americans. As goes America’s metros, so goes our country.
When The Body Was First Made All Parts Wanted To Be Boss
THE BRAIN SAID - "Since I control everything and do all the thinking, I should be boss." THE FEET SAID - "Since I carry him everywhere he wants to go and get him in position to do what the brain wants, I should be boss." THE EYES SAID - "Since I must look out for all of you and tell you where the danger lurks, I should be boss." THE HANDS SAID - "Since I do all the work and earn all the money to keep the rest of you going, I should be boss." And the heart, lungs, and ears all say the same thing. Finally, the asshole spoke up and demanded to be boss. All the other laughed and laughed to think of an asshole being boss. The asshole was so angered that he balked and refused to function. Soon the brain was feverish, the eyes crossed and ached, the feet were too weak to walk, the hands hung limply at the sides, and the heart and lungs struggled to keep going. All pleaded with the brain to relent and let the asshole be boss, and so it happened. All the other parts did all the work and the asshole just bossed and passed out Shit. THE MORAL IS - You don't have to be a brain to be boss, just an asshole! ;)

What is truly astounding to me is that any poor person believes Trump gives a shit about their economic situation. He's someone who actually personifies and embodies the elitism and privilege which is rotting the United States from the inside, and clues about his disdain for poor folks aren't exactly hard to find.
They chose Trump because he's not a career politician. Some people are tired of business as usual and they want to shake things up. The Dems are experiencing the same thing. There's a faction challenging the old guard (Pelosi) and they want to steer the party further left. I guess we'll find out what the future holds once it arrives ;)
