    So Trumper are now desperate the only attacks are to retweet manipulated videos I see. Rep Scalise retweeted one of a guy with ACLS no worse where the computerized voice was manipulated. Now Scalise did not do this personally just a retweet. Scalise obviously had his panties in a bunch trying to deflect. I believe he still has not taken it down.

    Now this

    The Trump campaign manipulated a video from

    ’s speech today because they could not challenge the content of the speech. This is their game. They cannot and will not compete on the facts

    I guess it was Scavino using a manipulated video this time, so much more closer ties to the White House. As stated in tweet above they can't win the legit way.

    No laws. Just corporate policy at Twitter and Facebook. And that with literally the Office of the President of the United States threatening them.

    All they have to say is they thought it was true and then take it down only after it's made the rounds.

    Wrong information is mistakenly passed on all the time right?

    You'd think that Libel/Slander could protect some of this. I guess the main problem would be proving that it did any actual damage since the main yahoos that throw it around wouldn't have voted for him anyways.

    I don't think you even know what that means. I know for sure we know you don't.

    Well that's very low effort on their part. Sad.

And yet, we have pretty much completely forgotten 1876, and forgotten Hayes, and forgotten Tilden. We will forget Trump too, because America always forgets its ugliness and unpleasantness. We only like to remember the cool, uplifting parts of history.
    To really drive this point home, I never learned about that election in school. Never knew any details of it beyond "Hayes won the EC but lost the popular vote." Hell, I never even learned about the scope and openness of the violence committed by the KKK and other groups in that era, or the large number of black men elected to office in the South following the Civil War. In fact, I'd go so far as to say I learned virtually nothing about Reconstruction in school beyond "it happened," and I grew up in Oakland, California. I learned about all of that only in the last couple of years, from reading Ron Chernow's biography of Ulysses S. Grant (which, incidentally, I absolutely recommend; it's very long, but interesting and informative).

    Those laws are typically designed to protect private persons from unwarranted attack. Because Biden/Trump have purposefully put themselves in to the public eye, they are largely barred from suing for Libel or Slander. Which of course ends up benefiting the party of law and order....

    By race:

    Black Voters:
    Biden 77% (+58)
    Trump 19%

    Hispanic voters:
    Biden 60% (+23)
    Trump 37%

    White voters:
    Trump 56% (+15)
    Biden 41%
    If this poll is accurate and Trump really has 19% of the black vote then we are fucked and he is gonna win by a landslide. Holy shit.

    Actually I think that would count as "electioneering" which you're not allowed to do within a certain distance of polling places. I know you were probably being sarcastic, but still, I don't want people taking this advice and getting turned away from voting.

    National polls don't matter much, as a reminder. State level polls, specifically in swing states, matter infinitely more.

    When you think about race distribution in swing states like Michigan for example, and you break down national polls by race, yeah they kinda do, unfortunately. This poll does not look good.

    They've now pivoted to "he should have said it SOONER and nobody at the DNC talked about it!" because if the right is good at anything it's moving goalposts.
