    Nikki Haley will run I'm sure. She just needs to figure out how to eat those words she said about Tramp.

    Granted, they are nowhere near as bad as the crazies on the far right, but anyone who actually read my full post would have seen that I said that already.

    Instead, the response was pile on mockery, a very Republican response.
    You sorta conceded our point: these things are *nothing* like the other. What you have here are tactical disputes and griping about people whining. The extremists on the other side stormed congress and erected gallows. These things are not alike and pretending they're remotely similar is dangerous.

    Yeah, this week but she's flip-flopped too many times. Trump is keeping score on who said what and he holds a mean grudge.

    Well, she along with a few others are exposed so they can't be as overt as before. No one in any position wants to be apart of Sedition II.

    And no one holds a grudge like Trump. Hell, he's still got a mad on for the NFL because of that court case he lost to the league back in 1987.

    They're going to keep extending the date. Just like Doomsday cults often do when they're proven to be false.

    As the original intent of CSGOPOTD was to point out "both parties are not the same"...

    By all means, name them if they exist. Who were these "loony leftists" running for office on the policies you just named? Because Jill Stein & Bernie aren't Democrats.

    Because the GOP are electing their fringe folks. The Democrats are leaving them screaming on the internet and giving them zero power.

    On this date in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, as well as 2020, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day posted profiles of Susan Lynn, of the Tennessee House of Representatives, from District 11. We noted at the time that Susan Lynn has been a guest on Alex Jones' spectacularly insane InfoWars radio show to declare that the state of Tennessee's sovereignty has been unconstitutionally violated (the Supreme Court does not agree), and has repeatedly pushed for nullification legislation to assure that the state of the Tennessee does not follow the federal government. Lynn also has taken to the floor of the Tennessee House to try to put a prohibitive ban on the implantation of microchips into human beings, voicing concerns how such a practice could lead to someone being given "Satan's stamp", aka the Mark of the Beast via such a procedure (seriously, she did that). Lynn has also voted to legalize carrying firearms in bars, enact stricter Voter ID laws, block the Medicaid Expansion, and bring back the electric chair as a possible method of execution. Right before we profiled her, she also made national headlines by submitting legislation to ban Muslim "no go zones" in the United States where people of other faiths outside of Islam are supposedly forbidden to pass... based on the Fox News narrative that such places exist in Paris or Dearborn, Michigan (they don't, of course). In our first update on her, we added her vote for HB 615, the highly unconstitutional attempt by the Tennessee GOP to make The Bible the state book, and finally, her vote for HJR 529, a resolution to express their disagreement with the Supreme Court on the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling.

    Lynn has referred to transgenderism as “a mental disorder”, and has been distributing anti-Muslim propaganda DVDs with clever names like “AMERICA’S MOSQUES EXPOSED!” to fellow legislators over the past several years. She also made the bold decision to co-sponsor legislation to recognize Jerusalem as the national capital of Israel, because apparently she’s looking to stir up that Holy War she’s been afraid of with Muslims for the past several years.

    Susan Lynn was hardly letting the democratic process play out like a normal politician would with the threat of the “Blue Wave” coming in 2018. Instead, Susan Lynn decided to “tip off” the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and send them to raid the home of her 2018 opponent, Jeremy Hayes, accusing him of “living outside the district” and voting outside of the district. Hayes was only temporarily living with his grandmother, helping her as she’s been undergoing treatment for stage 4 kidney failure, but hey, let’s just watch the GOP’s District Attorney General try and file search warrants and raid the homes of candidates running against their own party members. Nothing shady or fascist about that, right? This isn’t even a coincidence… Lynn ADMITTED she was the one who “informed” on him in a gutless move. Regrettably, even in light of that tasteless moment, Susan Lynn won re-election in 2018 and in 2020 with over two thirds of the of the vote.

    As such, she’ll be allowed to continue sponsoring very, very important and not-at-all obviously unconstitutional legislation like putting “IN GOD WE TRUST” signs up in all public schools around the state, which in no way is a violation of the separation of church and state while assuring that it wouldn’t bother “faithless people, or sponsoring anti-choice legislation that would flat out ban the majority of abortions in the state.

    However… we’re starting to wonder if maybe someone might be able to knock her out of office in at least a primary in 2022… because people have finally taken note of her love of conspiracy theories and the media has started reporting on who her corporate donors are. Susan Lynn’s Facebook page was sporting a Qanon logo when this happened, and as late as September of 2020, and suddenly, Wal-Mart and Amazon started yanking her campaign funding out from under her… too late for 2020, but it could impact her desire to keep running, and even if she does, it could handicap her ability to fend of any challengers in 2022.

    You hate to see it.

    Not only are they electing their fringe but they actively try to demonize and censure the GOP who do try and stand up to the crazy. They have no leg to stand on period they have gone all in with the racists and white supremacists' and the cultist kooks in the party.

    I thought I conceded that in the original post, if anyone would have read past the first five words they would have caught it. I think it was something like "Not as crazy, not as numerous, and not in charge.". Then I compared the left to paint chips on my house while the right was a gaping hole in the wall. Apparently to a lot of people here that means I think they are exactly the same or something.

    In all fairness, Bernie does caucus with the Democrats and helps them maintain a slim majority in the Senate. Oh, and they made him chairman of the Budget Committee, so he does have quite a bit of power.

    The only threat that the radical left poses to anyone is that it makes moderates feel bad by pointing out that their half-baked legislation and token minority appointments are just useless gestures and not these triumphant landmarks of progress. We already know that any kind of serious drive toward universal healthcare, combating climate change, fixing the immigration system, or ending police brutality will never actually happen because nobody with any real power is committed to any of those policies, but somehow centrists have decided that they can't even countenance people talking about these things because it makes their watered down proposals look meaningless by comparison. You're not the first person to get caught for doing that whole "well, I'm not trying to punch left buuuuut..." act, just take the L and move on.

    Is it better to push incremental legislation that has a hope of passing or more progressive legislation that has no chance of passing? Which is a better use of limited time and resources?
