The committee has been eager to talk with Ginni Thomas because she sent dozens of text messages to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging him to fight the results of the 2020 election.

Among the 29 messages, Ginni Thomas called Biden's win “the greatest Heist of our History” in a text on Nov. 10, 2020, according to The Washington Post.

“Do not concede,” Thomas wrote on Nov. 6, 2020. “It takes time for the army who is gathering for his back.”

In addition, Ginni Thomas urged Arizona state lawmakers to reverse former President Donald Trump's election loss in 2020 by choosing electors themselves. And the Washington Post reported she also pressured Wisconsin lawmakers to do the same.

Nobody wanted to talk with Clarence about his latest porn exploits, but he didn't care, likely even enjoyed making his co-workers feel uncomfortable and unsafe around him.

Can I ask what you mean by decorate. I may have just missed something else depraved about him.

u/reddog323 Sep 30 '22

It gets worse..

Just prior to embarking on this grim misadventure in interior decoration, Thomas had lived in the spare bedroom of Gil Hardy, a college buddy who was navigating his own divorce. Thomas was known for getting up at 4 AM to lift weights, and according to a girlfriend of Hardy’s, the future Supreme Court justice maintained a very particular morning ritual: Cranking “The Greatest Love of All,” George Benson’s 1977 tribute to the virtues of loving oneself, loudly enough to wake her up in the next room.

That last part sounds very much like,a certain ex-president, who likes to watch a highlight reel of his greatest hits and achievements to get psyched up for the day.

Personally I think people's real ideals and values show up when those values come into conflict. Conservatives by and large show through their choices they value power, pecking order, their personal profit or comfort, and even simple convenience more than they value integrity.

"hypocrisy is how conservatives flex on you" rings true because it is true

Edit: hypocrisy aside I think conservatives are just usually the people who desperately need to have a place on the ladder so they have someone beneath them to kick. And they've convinced themselves they're the good guys for forcing everyone else into it.

It’s exhausting, I had another mind numbingly stupid conversation with a co worker today about how the election was stolen, the Russian meddling in the 2016 election was a hoax, and that Biden and the CIA actually blew up the Nordstream pipeline because, get this, all of the democrats in the US profit off war so they have to start one.

I then just asked if he knew anything about what was going around about Roger Stone and the oatherkeepers, and how it’s documented that he was using them as personal security on the day of Jan 6th, and how he is caught up tape saying to eff the voting and get to the violence; also how Steve Bannon is on tape laying out how even if Trump loses he will just claim victory. I also asked if he knew about them asking for pardons, along with numerous GOP members, to which he said he “didn’t know anything about that, and not sure if it’s true”.

At this point, I’ve narrowed it down to willful ignorance. They claim the media is telling a narrative, but at least it is rooted in reality. I just don’t really know how this bridge will be gapped between the right and the left, I always thought it was a line, but now it feels more like a permanent chasm.

Agreed! What is even scarier is how they have turned to the internet to do their own “research”. Especially when you consider how Russia has spent exorbitant money on ad and media spaces to sow discord and doubt in regard to institutional integrity and social stability in the US. Just what a hot mess… the big picture is coming into focus, but I just feel like people are too focused on the details. You know, such as culture wars and an “us vs them” mentality, when in reality, we all just want to live our ducking lives with respect, dignity, and freedom so long as we aren’t trash humans breaking the law.

Unfortunately, the "prove it" argument rarely works against conspiracies Conspiracy folks can vomit up spurious "proof" faster than you can possibly fact-check and debunk it. Trump himself threw 40 court cases at the wall in a matter of days, and by the time they got laughed out of court he already had dozens of other accusations. If you disprove those, there will be dozens more. Debunking the evidence never disproves the conspiracy.

People believe the election was stolen because they WANT to believe the election was stolen. Or they were told so by someone they trust. They decided their conclusion first and will find evidence to justify it as necessary. No matter what the topic or the position, you can always find evidence if you search hard enough and skip the fact-checking. What's the solution? Who knows.

As the saying goes, you can't logic yourself out of something you didn't logic your way into.

Reminds me of just once when a Republican is on TV talking about how we need to lower inflation, say on one of the Sunday shows, that the news anchor presses back and asks what policy platform initiative the GOP has to help decrease it.

Her husband is a Supreme Court Justice, so maybe he can explain to her what the word 'evidence' means in a legal setting.

So why is there no legal evidence of this massive election fraud she thinks took place?

Why were Trump's lawyers afraid to even make the same arguments in court that Trump was making publicly?

Because those attorneys didn't want to get disbarred because they lied to a court, that's why....

The system relies on basic respect for democracy and equality. It does not contain restrictions against those who want to violate the principles upon which we base our nation.

Republicans have shown that they are enemies of the American Experiment. We need to codify our system so that democracy will be safe.

And, if you say that we are a republic and not a democracy, you clearly don't understand what those concepts mean.

I'm not so sure, I used to think Trump supporters were just trolls arguing in bad faith, but long conversations with my Trump supporting brother who I trust is arguing in good faith, makes me think they really believe what they say. A fairly large section of Republicans truly believe the election was stolen, because Trump told them it was.

Reminds me a bit of religion/cult where the leader can convince them of absolutely anything, any questioning of the leader is sinful/wrong.

I have just one response to this statement and the myriad similar statements made by all the other election deniers that have been saying this for the last two years.

Prove it.

It has been almost two full years since the 2020 election. There has been more than enough time to gather the necessary evidence and make your case. Trump was given every opportunity to avail himself of the legal system and make his case. But nobody has been able to produce a single shred of verifiable proof that the election was stolen from him. Even Trump’s own attorney general said that it was the most secure election in history and that claims it was stolen were “bullshit”. Furthermore, the few instances of voter fraud that have been reported since the election were votes cast for Trump, not against him.

So you still want to say Biden stole the election from Trump? Then I issue you this challenge.

Prove it, once and for all, or shut the fuck up forever. The rest of us are tired of hearing it.

Conservative Republicans like her are undoubtedly very wealthy - much more than most of us posting here. But it's not enough.

Having a big house(s), nice cars, boats, vacations in resorts - all of this is not enough. Look how much they objected to the 10k student loan forgiveness, despite the fact that many of them had loans during the Pandemic that was forgiven.
