This video shows how fascism wins...

(play the clip included)

I am utterly appalled that these women are allowed to vote in the US. They are obviously morally unfit to have the franchise.

(and before anyone gets shirty about it, no it is NOT about gender, it is about what their statements says about their character)

best response... Tim Williams

Says it all for me!

As another poster said earlier... you can't fix stupid!

I would go further than lost and call them deplorable and irredemable.

Not all the women were as stupid as that one in the back row on the end in the gray cardigan. That woman is beyond stupid.
ETA: this is only a small portion of the entire interview.

You can't worry about their kind. They aren't like us. They aren't real Americans. Focus on the people you can bring back to America's side. The **** in your video will always be one of Trump's whores . That stupid **** deserves what she gets.

The woman is a chuckle-head.

But di want to point out how chilling I consider those highlighted words. All US citizens who have not been convicted of an election-related crime should have the right to vote. Even the morally unfit ones.

It's a part of a CNN sit down with women voters who had a past of swing voting and who had voted for Trump in the 2016 elections.

The clip was the final question in which those that showed unwavering support of Trump were asked if they would still support him is he did shoot someone on 5th Avenue. The two of them that were supporting him no matter what replied "Well why did he shoot them?"

The full article can be seen here....

And yet your first move seems to be is to censure their rights in a most Bolshevik way.

Not really. I think everyone understands the question is really about committing murder. I think that subtext is clear even in the original statement by Trump himself.

That said, the whole thing is a rhetorical gotcha game. In that sense, I'm perfectly okay with "why did he shoot them" as a rhetorical counter-play. If nothing else, it might prompt some anti-Trumpers to declare that legitimate killing isn't when it's Trump doing it.

That's one of the risks you just have to run when you vote for the Leopards Eating Peoples' Faces Party.

Yep.

To note: This is a show of how a fascist *could* win, not how he (*cough cough* or she...) will.
