“This Doesn’t Even Make Sense”

Let’s quote the full graph and not just the sentence that makes you irritated:

Supporters of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will spend the next months demanding those who dissent submit to this strategy of running a smarter conservative presidential campaign to defeat Trump’s extremism. Their anti-democratic impulses should be defied during each ebb and flow of the general election.

It makes sense because I could write an entire post with examples of Biden and Harris supporters labeling many who criticize Biden a “Trump supporter,” a “Russian bot,” or a child who needs to grow up. Some of these supporters are average citizens. Some of them actually have influence and power and are worth paying attention.

These individuals exhibit behavior, particularly on social media, that is unfriendly to democracy. They are insecure about news reporting that reflects poorly on their candidate. They do not like hearing from people who are disappointed in the Democratic Party’s nominee.

Rather than punch up at the party that picked a candidate who can barely maintain a razor-thin lead over Donald Trump, they lash out at those unwilling to toe the party line from now until Election Day.

Does that make sense now? I explained it fairly well so if you don’t understand it’s because you choose not to understand.
