The State of the GOP: With All the White Supremacists, Conspiracy Nutters, and Other Malicious Ignorant Subgroups, How Does It Get Fixed? in The Tailgate Posted December 31, 2020 On 12/29/2020 at 10:06 AM, Jabbyrwock said: Let the thread title be your guide and start there. The current GOP is a wretched hive of white supremacists and conspiracy nutters. I'd perhaps throw in rampant science denial, though in a way that fits under conspiracy nutters. That is what is wrong with the GOP. Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell are read herrings. An apotheosis of such values, not the cause. So don't be confused. What may come across as mixed messaging is mostly people focusing on particular traits is these individuals as exemplars of the underlying problems. Now...what I haven't read a lot of in this thread is "How To Fix It". So if you have some ideas we are all ears. I really have no idea how to fix it. it's anathema to me like Martin Luther and the Roman Catholic church.
