4. Until GA Republicans learn "AOC" is behind this, "AOC" of course

being shorthand for the giant anti-God, socialist takeover happening right NOW!

Damn! I hoped this was put up by trumpist nuts genuinely angry at them, not a manipulative far-left group risking blowing whatever real movement there was up.

8. As long as they don't attend church, listen to RW radio, and

stay off social media so most of those this is aimed at don't find out.

It's a mistake to underestimate just how intransigently angry and hostile GA trumpists are -- against the left. And how frightened many are. Satan and his demons are loose in the land, and socialists are their servants. Religious objections and fears cut across all racial lines, btw. It's not just a white thing.

We'll see one way or the other, have no choice.

16. This is so true..

Don't underestimate how angry and hostile all trumpers are and how much they fear the left. Socialism from us godless liberals is their biggest fear and the capitalists stoke that fear while raking in the cash.

You're right, it's not just a white thing, but it's mostly a white thing.

27. :) Oh, yeah! And yes to the last for sure, but here in GA 1/3 of us are black,

many are conservative, religion is very strong, and for some a Republican senate checking dangerous LW secular "extremism" while a Democratic president blocks the GOP's racist policies and appointments is probably not the worst scenario.

Just checked on the mail-in ballots we ordered some time ago. Expected to arrive any day now.

While waiting, we've received APPLICATIONS for mail-in ballots from a national group, America Votes, that focuses on getting out the vote in state races, GA right now. Impressive effort. They're valid (I checked), America Votes only listed as the outside envelope's return address, the letter thanking me for being a voter completely nonpartisan and principled, and the application and return envelope same as the state issues. So I knew before checking that it wasn't sent by any RW or other trickster organization.

36. All my hopes are pinned on Georgia

You'd think I'd learn by now, but I just can't help it. Voter suppression has worked so well for Republicans for the last decades, but Georgia went for Biden and my heart soared. I can see the rest of the south following. I only hope I'm still around to see it.

The other day, I watched the documentary "All In" and there was a clip from a speech LBJ gave when introducing the Voting Rights Act and I loved the end; he looked right into the faces of Republicans and said in that deep souther drawl.. "we shall overcome" with emphasis on the 'shall.' I remember watching that on tv with my mom and her saying "Yes! we shall."

Oh please save us, Georgia!

32. Well, since the term offends I changed it. This kind of

stuff offends me no matter who's doing it, but I'd probably also feel the ends justified the means if they worked, or forget about them. Just afraid these means will kill the end. There's a reason our pros don't do this stuff. The Republicans are an entirely different kettle of slime creatures of course.

Btw, on another post I mentioned an entirely different quality of action -- a very impressive GOTV group, America Votes, who are sending unsolicited, NONPARTISAN applications for mail-in ballots to voters across GA. We trashed ours since we'd already requested them, but are going to send them a donation. They're a national progressive action group committed to advancing the principles of representative democracy, but they concentrate their efforts at the state level. Right now, it's GA.

Not the source, no matter what it is. In the relatively short time remaining, I wouldn't expect the (temporarily?) aligned messaging won't unravel.

At the end of the day, claiming credit or shirking blame will do that.

Can they be this stupid, or is this a tactic to try and get Dems to be complacent on voting in the run-off? I think they are this stupid, but regardless, Dems need to show up for the GA runoff in numbers larger than they showed up for the Presidential Election.

48. From a straight-up advertising point of view, I don't like it.

First - the text is open to interpretation. I could easily read this as a call for more effective conservative candidates who, unlike Loeffler and Perdue, might have delivered for Trump. This is the opposite of the message we should be sending. (I had to think about the text for a moment to really figure it out. If an ad needs to be thought about before the message comes through, it's not an effective ad.)

Second - the photos of the two boneheads are standard headshots. If I drive by this billboard and can't read the text for some reason, I'm going to think it's their ad.

51. Press release from real America pac...

Release date: December 1, 2020

If David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win the run-off election, Donald Trump will become the only Republican to lose Georgia in a generation. In a rare twist of fate, Trump supporters and those who want to see Reverend Warnock and Jon Ossoff win have a shared interest in seeing the two Republicans who failed to deliver a victory for Trump (Loeffler & Perdue), lose.

If Trump supporters deliver Perdue and Loeffler a victory, they should be acutely aware that they will be delivering Trump and MAGA a serious political defeat. The only people trying to conceal this are Loeffler, Perdue, and Mitch McConnell, who want to destroy President Trump but keep his supporters.

Our shared interest lies in defeating Washington insiders Perdue, Loeffler & McConnell, who happen to be trying to destroy Trump.
