I consider Trump and his inside circle need COVID to be as dangerous as doable now, in order to dampen voter turnout subsequent week and additional harm the nation if Biden ought to take the reins this yr. No different clarification matches the proof. I consider this entire nightmare is a falling dagger of fascism that have to be turned apart earlier than it lands a mortal blow.

It involves this: I want everybody concerned nothing however well being and lengthy life, but when Pence and that planeful of Fox Information notables have develop into contaminated as a result of Trump’s deliberate negligence, we very a lot could all bear witness subsequent week to the president of the US metaphorically dragging the sick or lifeless our bodies of his vp and most loyal media supporters throughout the end line with him as he shrieks, “They’re nice, every thing’s nice, rounding the flip!”

That’s the place we’re at, and these would be the longest [seven] days of our lives. Stout hearts.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

At Each day Kos on this date in 2016—Professional-Trump group deliberate to ‘monitor’ the polls by donning faux IDs, videotaping voters:

Donald Trump has repeatedly requested his supporters to exit and “monitor” polling locations in suspiciously non-Trump districts (he means locations the place Not White Individuals dwell), and Trump ally Roger Stone is fortunately serving to to oblige with some characteristically unsubtle efforts. One known as “Vote Protectors,” which plans to “defend” the vote by 1.) issuing faux ID badges, 2.) videotaping voters on the polls to ensure every thing’s on the up-and-up and three.) interviewing voters to create their very personal Trump-friendly “exit polls.” After the Huffington Put up caught wind of those efforts, the group is backing down on two of the three.

Stone’s group created an official-looking ID badge for its volunteers to put on, and its volunteers deliberate to videotape voters and conduct faux “exit polls,” efforts that election specialists say dangers intimidating and complicated voters. Or a minimum of that’s what the group was planning on doing earlier than The Huffington Put up requested Stone about it on Tuesday.

So you would print out an “ID badge” with any ol’ title you wished and you got detailed directions on find out how to add movies of the voters you ran throughout. These two schemes have, after Stone was requested about it, been pulled from the location: Stone referred to as each of them “dangerous concepts” that he claimed to not have identified about.
