I think both parties have factions within them that are pulling them apart. The Repubs have the Trump supporters and the more establishment conservatives, and the Dems have the Far Left Bernie Bros that want more socialist policies (GND), and the establishment moderates who are more interested in gaining and keeping political power. And since nobody wants to work with the other side for fear of getting primaried, we're kinda fucked.
As already correctly noted, this fails as a false comparison fallacy.

What is the old saying about not truly being able to help someone until they learn to help themselves?

If this keeps up, and at this point, there is little, if any, indication that wiser, cooler, and smarter heads will prevail, the Republican Party will not last as a viable political party that people will trust to govern.

If someone would have released a statement a few years ago like the Oregon GOP just did, I would have believed it was a fabrication. But, as they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

The best that can be said about this (and it's not good, to be sure) is that it's some kind of shared delusion.

All I can say at this point is that these guys better snap out of it soon, or they're going to find themselves irrelevant.

Didn't the leftists kooks say the same thing when Barry Sotoro was elected?

If you study history of the past fifty to sixty years, or, if you're just plain old, you will see, or have watched, as the GOP strategists spent those decades cultivating the very lunacy and madness your OP addresses.

It's doubtful the party's strategists planned for that lunacy and madness to reach the level it is today. But those many years and several generations later, the psychological effects of fearmongering and nurturing right-wing paranoia are tearing the Republican Party to shreds.

Six decades of constant manipulation cannot be reversed in days, weeks, or years. The bitter hatred developed in their voting base for everyone unlike themselves is a flaw that same manipulation makes invisible to its victims, in both themselves and others that hold the same beliefs.

It's not Republicans suggesting people be put in camps for Wrongthink, Skippy.
No, but it was your orange-tinted messiah that locked children away in his concentration camp for having foreign born parents. Now, over five hundred are unable to be reunited with their families. These are facts, unlike your imaginary camps for "wrongthink".

WRONG! Those are Obama cages. And they weren't caged for being born to foreign born parents. They were incarcerated for BREAKING THE LAW and entering the country illegally. They are NOT Americans and the parties to blame are the CRIMINAL parents.
And the kids were separated from their parents until it could be determined they belonged to the adults travelling with them and weren't being trafficked.

I agree. It never ends.....and fake new CNN is never relegated to the Rubber Room or the Badlands. Now why is that?

Not fair.

Children weren't breaking the law you idiot. Most of those people came here as refugees for the illegal shit we did to their countries; CIA in South America | Geopolitical Monitor

Some were...most were not...and all were used in a far more evil and cynical way by Trump.

Trump people are on record as stating that family separation was a POLICY to be used as a pre-emptive punishment

Dems are embracing Communist China and censorship.....
I always liked the idea of high speed rails -- kind of ironic that essentially Chinese slaves helped build our first railroads and now we're stealing their ideas because we fell behind them. We have 30 years of endless wars and they have 30,000 miles of high-speed rail lines.

The US does not lead in anything anymore. Why are our engineers not coming up with ideas like this-- . It is only a concept, but it makes a great deal of sense.
Because Trump didn't want those engineers. He wanted the dirty fossil fuel industry.

Yeah, the GOP is going batshit insane. Just read the loon rants of the Oregon GOP statements. It's straight out of QAnon.
Let us know when we demand safe spaces,therapy animals, crayons and coloring books,days off work and school and scream at the sky nights.

Why do you quote News Entertainment sources? I am more worried about cancel culture than anything. I cannot even opine that I believe that trans girls should not be allowed to play physical sports vs biological girls like my kids. That's all Democrats. Free speech not allowed unless it's their free speech

Yeah! Right! You certainly put Mustang in his/her place.
Damn you're good! Whooo!
I obviously impressed you blowhard....
You guys don't realize how stupid you look when you continue to mouth buzzwords put out by whatever shit social media channels you frequent.
If Biden was in bed with China and it was provable, your Orange Jesus would have been ALL OVER IT during the campaign.
But he wasn't, was he?
All he does on this forum is lie.

That is made up crap to get you to toe the party line.
Have you spoken out against censorship by libs in big tech?....
Private social media are at liberty to edit their content as they see fit, where such editing is neither ‘censorship’ nor ‘violating’ free speech.

And how social media edit their content certainly has nothing to do with Democrats or China.

You and others on the right have a ridiculous, unwarranted hostility toward social media because you incorrectly believe they are being ‘mean’ to conservatives.
