MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch says Democrats should spare no effort to “put Trump in jail”.
Zzzzzzzzzz. That’s not “dog bites man”. That’s not even “dog licks dog”.
The iinteresting thing here is Deutsch’s…er, permissive and selective self-image. Emphasis added:
Deutsch … implored Democrats to use “fear” to campaign against Trump to paint a picture of a “dystopian society” that will follow a Trump second term.
“The one tool we have to use that the Democrats never use is fear,” Deutsch said on ‘Morning Joe’ Friday. “Start to stop talking about Donald Trump today and yesterday and start to paint a picture of what the next four years would look like. Maybe even the next 8, 12 years because he doesn’t think he’s going anywhere of the possible path to a dystopian society. There is no more playing. We cannot bring a knife fight to a bazooka gunfight.”
Democrats “never use fear”.
- climate change (or at least the parts they claim will require bigger, richer government to “fix”
- Gun violence (it’s dropping, not rising)
- White guys (we’re in year 11 of Democrats assuring us that there’s a wave of “white nationalist violence” around the corner. Any day now. Honest.
- Homophobic violence
- Women being turned into robots, a la Handmaid’s Tale
I’d hate to see what it’s like when they do start appealing to fear…
