I've never disagreed with Harris this much.
"I didn't see any bending the knee by the cops."
What the fuck are you taking about, Sam, you just said they were taking selfies with the insurrectionists TWICE during this podcast. Kneeling to show solidarity is magically different than posing for pictures to show solidarity? Where's the intellectual honesty?
Sam's confusing the CORRECT claims that if black people were storming the Capitol it would have been different with anecdotal incidents that seem to contradict it. The really confusing part, is that he detailed what the difference was: there wasn't enough police presence for them to behave how they should have, i.e. shooting the fuck out of the terrorists. The connection he failed to make, however, is that if the planned riot (and yes, it was planned and their intel told them this) was going to be comprised of black people, there WOULD have been an appropriate police presence, just like there was on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. One if the reasons was that the racist president tried to stop more forces from fortifying the Capitol. But the fact that they weren't already there shows there had to be others that just didn't view white people as much of a threat... It is a shame that a man as smart as Harris would need this explained to him by a man so far his intellectual inferior like me.
A secure, transparent, unhackable election process is completely possible and actually easy, and everyone knows it. We transfer trillions of dollars via phones and other personal electronics every single day with multi-level biosecurity and encryption. We could have a voting system in place that met all those conditions in no time. The problem is that it drastically increases access to voting, and Republicans don't want that, and I think it was egregious omission by Harris not to mention this during his plea. Trump even admitted it saying, "They had things, levels of voting that if you’d ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again".
Reuters also reported, "As Trump pushes baseless fraud claims, Republicans pledge tougher voting rules"
You're better than this, Sam.
