So many things wrong with this tweet.
We’ll take our Biden victory; we’ll continue to organize and fight for a progressive America; and we’ll say goodbye to Bill Maher.
First and foremost, Biden didn’t win anything. There is no “Biden victory,” yet, nor should there ever be. It isn’t a win until the final whistle blows, the last out is recorded, or the bell rings. As Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.”
But even if Biden is officially declared the winner, it won’t be a victory. Winners never cheat.
we’ll continue to organize and fight for a progressive America
In a democratic system like ours (a democratic republic) you don’t “fight” for change. Fighting involves violence. When you think of politics as a fight you are adding violence to the mix. Winning in a democratic system means persuasion, not coercion.
Borrowing a quote from Lola in the last thread:
“If you want to remove a cloud from your life, remove it from your thinking.”
Remove violence from your thinking. And while you’re at it, remove racism.
we’ll say goodbye to Bill Maher.
I got a better idea. Let’s say goodbye to “cancel culture.”
