Quick Thoughts on the Ongoing Aftermath of 2020 Election Shitshow

November 9, 2020 24 comments

Here is a post which I have been meaning to write for past few days, but kept delaying due to ongoing developments in that area and being busy with work. By now, you know that the MSM has declared Dementia Joe as the “victor” in the 2020 presidential election. The way I see it, this shitshow is not over till at least December 14th of this year when the the electoral college meets to cast their votes. Realistically, this show will go on even past inauguration day 2021.. into 2022 and 2024. So welcome to Hell and get comfy as you are going to here for a while.

So here are some of my very quick thoughts on the post-election shitshow, till now..

1] One of the most surprising outcomes of this election was that Trump got a few million more votes in 2020, than he did in 2016. Orange Man got more votes in 2020 than Obama got in his historical victory in 2008. Sure.. the population of this country has grown since 2008, but let me remind you that Obama in 2012 fell short of his 2008 numbers as did HRC in 2016. What makes this truly unique is that he did so in spite of the media demonizing him for past 5 years, all those failed and fake investigations in addition to his sloppy handling of response to COVID-19 pandemic. Trump getting over 71 million votes was the biggest surprise of 2020.

2] On a related note, Democrats lost seats in the house, didn’t flip any state legislatures or governorships and are almost certain to not gain their long coveted senate majority. In my opinion, this is the second most surprising outcome of 2020, since many were guessing that all of the alleged public anger against Trump would somehow translate into democrats flipping multiple senate seats, increasing their margin in house and gaining at the state level. But they did not, and is a huge warning signal to that party. Did I also mention that Democrats did not flip Texas and Florida. Which brings me to the third surprising outcome of this election.

3] Trump and Republicans actually gained non-white voters from the working class. While it is still too early to give exact numbers, it appears that Trump got the highest percentage of non-white voters for any republican president in past few decades. He also received the highest percentage of Hispanic votes of any modern Republican president, including.. I kid you not.. from Hispanic-majority counties bordering Mexico. Far less surprisingly, most of the increase in votes for Democrats came from affluent suburban and predominantly white areas. And while Trump did not win some reliably Democrat-voting coastal states such as CA, NY etc.. he did increase the number of Republican votes in those states compared to 2016.

4] The supposedly “scientific” pre-election polls were off by huge and inexcusable margins. After the 2016 debacle all these polling agencies had promised to do a far better job this time around as they had claimed to have learnt their lesson and corrected their mistakes. Turns out, this was all complete bullshit! The “errors” in state and national pre-election polls in 2020 were much higher than in 2016.In all ‘swing’ states, even the final polls were consistently off by over 10%. There are two explanations for this debacle- either polling agencies learned nothing from 2016 or they were involved in a very deliberate and coordinated operation to suppress Trump voters. And they failed.. again.

5] Which brings us to the next point.. aka the vote-counting operations in some ‘swing’ states and Democrat-run cities were shady as fuck. You might have noticed that Orange Man won all supposed ‘swing’ states which counted their votes on same day such as TX, FL and OH. But in ‘swing’ states with some democratic control, mysterious large batches of votes kept getting “discovered” and counted during early morning hours. This was especially obvious in cities under control of Democratic party. While this country has always been intentionally deficient at conducting free and fair elections, vote-counting during the 2020 election was the shadiest we have seen in living memory.

Sure.. the sudden increase of mail-in and absentee ballots was guaranteed to cause some problems, but I cannot help notice that certain states such as FL and TX handled the situation very well. Others such as WI, MI and PA did not. The deliberate slowing down of vote-counting by certain states such as NV and AZ also does not inspire confidence in the results of this election. To make a long story short, regardless of what the dying mouthpieces of MSM and internet monopolies are promoting, majority of people in this country seem to think that the elections were fixed- at least in certain ‘swing’ states.

6] Because of the very obvious shadiness of how this election was conducted in certain key states and Trump’s unwillingness to play along with certain elite bullshit such as “norms”- it is almost certain that this will be litigated for a long time, especially in the public mind. Let me remind you that partisan idiots such as MikeCA still believe that “Russia” and “Putin” stole the 2016 election for Trump without any significant amount of proof to support this accusation. You can bet that the next four years will see a similar but far larger movement centered around the idea that establishment Democrats stole the 2020 election- but this time there will be much more circumstantial evidence to support that belief.

And Trump will fan the flames of this movement since he is not a dickless neoliberal such as Al Gore. It does not help that Biden and company have already confirmed that they want to go back to the same sad identity and “wokeness” based neoliberal bullshit politics which pissed voters off and got Trump elected in 2016. Also, they have shown no willingness or possess the ability to pass large bailouts for average people. In other words, the massive economic and unemployment crisis caused by response to COVID-19 pandemic is going to get much worse- especially if they follow whatever bullshit “scientific” advice they are getting from their bunch of credentialed fuckwits.

I would not rule out even more unpleasant election-related “surprises in next two months, given that this is 2020.
