i love the tacit acceptance by the right of literal war when faced with the elimination of undemocratic systems like the electoral college. one person, one vote? no, i'm sorry, i'll kill people instead.
This particular line of argument is particularly odious because Republicans treat blue states and urban areas with a 100 times more scorn than Democrats are allowed to talk about rural red areas. And they're very open about this in thier attack ads and campaign rallies.
Ill agree all day that "coastal elites" demonstrate a culture of toxicity towards southerners and mid western rural folks and it bleeds into acceptable popular culture but between the two parties there is absolutely no comparison. If any democrat said what Kushner said about letting blue states flounder on thier own for the duration of the pandemic he'd be finished.
