once Trump leaves and Biden's in charge and people start melting down because Biden passed some watered down health care bill that will be labeled "Communism worse than Stalin."
I'd be impressed if Biden passes anything. Although they do have the senate now so ig there's no excuse (at least in the eyes of the public)

The fear and anger thing is a technique used primarily by the left to undermine opposing points. The narrative being that the right wing press is consistently stirring up simple people into fear and anger against minorities in order to block left wing progressive change. Like all good narratives there's an element of truth about it. Thus asking why, or implying someone is angry or scared when they raise an issue refers back to this notion and immediately devalues whatever they say next. James O'Brien on LBC is a particular proponent of this rather devious methodology.

Yeah, you never hear "You're arguing from emotion!" or "Facts, not feelings!" coming from right-wingers.

Nice bit of DM style sarcasm there. It's true, you do hear that said but if you aren't arguing from emotion, it'd be quite straightforward to counter that accusation with some facts. However it's more difficult to counter an accusation that you're scared or angry because just saying you're not scared or not angry is never a convincing response and is what someone would say if they were scared or angry. Which makes it more pernicious IMO. It is said the left have had to develop more subtle and underhand tactics to compensate for the weaknesses in their arguments, ha ha!

Thanks, Yoda.

Clearly you don't know Yoda.

"Anger, this would be."
"And fear, this would be."

I don't think you're going to convince anyone who's been exposed to conservative media in the last twenty years that conservatives occupy some kind of rhetorical high ground. Sorry.

They've either gotten good at their voter fraud or too bold and overconfident in their stealing.  There is no way a very red state like Georgia all of a sudden votes for very radical Democrats as their Senator.  (Perhaps a conservative or blue dog Democrat might have had a slim shot.  But a far left Marxist crazy like Warnock?  No way!)

Shouldn’t you be out breaking into the US Capitol building?
