Right now, we are experiencing the calm before the storm. Many Biden supporters believe a Trump victory would literally be the worst thing that could happen to our country, but right now most of them are pretty confident Biden will win. Likewise, many Trump supporters are absolutely convinced that we will plunge into a horrific socialist abyss if Biden wins, but for now, most of them are convinced that the polls are wrong and that Trump will win another victory in November. So, with just over a week to go to Election Day, most Americans who really care about politics are pacified because they believe a positive outcome is imminent.
But soon that will change, and tens of millions of Americans will simultaneously melt emotionally before our eyes.
I think almost everyone realizes that this national tantrum is happening. It’s just that most of those who care deeply about politics assume it will happen on the other side.
At this point, even Facebook is bracing for the worst. In fact, they are preparing to implement “emergency measures” generally reserved for countries most “at risk” …
Owen Shroyer breaks down the continuing Joe Biden bombs that the New York Post and others continue to break as Big Tech maintains its total news ban on anything related to the Biden crime family.
As the United States braces for election-related unrest next month, Facebook executives are implementing emergency measures reserved for “at-risk” countries in a company-wide effort to bring down the temperature online.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that the social media giant plans to limit the spread of viral content and lower the threshold for deleting potentially inflammatory posts using internal tools previously deployed in Sri Lanka and Myanmar.
So what would these “emergency measures” look like? Well, that might even include manipulating your News Feed to change the type of content you’re allowed to view …
Facebook has a number of options it could take, including “slowing down the spread of viral content and lowering the bar to remove potentially inflammatory posts” and “tweaking the News Feed to change the types of content that users see, ”the Wall Street Journal reported.
Of course, Facebook has been manipulating our news feeds for a very long time already, but that’s a topic for another article.
Personally, I absolutely hate all the censorship that big social media companies have and I’m not surprised that they are gearing up to take it even further.
According to Facebook, these new “emergency measures” will be implemented in the event of “electoral violence” …
However, the social media colossus only plans to put these restrictions in place in the event of election-related violence (which many others fear and are preparing for). However, in a staff meeting, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that a “someone’s decisive victory” could “be useful for clarity and to avoid violence or civil unrest after the election.” which would reduce the need for Facebook to intervene.
Considering the fact that we see election-related violence almost constantly, I would say there is a good chance that Facebook is actually carrying out these emergency measures.
Meanwhile, The Washington Post is also deeply concerned about what this election might do to our nation. In a very long article they just published, they discussed that both parties are convinced that “the wrong outcome will lead to disaster”…
A week before Americans choose their path forward, the quadrennial crossroads smacks of despair. In almost all generations, politicians consider some elections to be the most important of their time. But the 2020 vote is unfolding with the country in a historically gloomy mood – low on hope, operating on a spiritual vacuum, convinced that the wrong outcome will bring disaster.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Frank Luntz, a Republican political consultant who convened discussion groups of undecided voters for seven presidential cycles. “Even the most balanced and traditional people are talking about this election in more caffeinated and cataclysmic language than anything I have ever heard.
Emotions were definitely high in 2016, but we’ve never seen anything like it.
Most Democrats believe Trump and his supporters are deeply evil, and likewise, most Republicans believe Biden and his supporters are deeply evil.
And of course, there are also many who are fully convinced that all of them are deeply evil.
When you have such a deeply divided nation, how can anyone ever bring us together in unity?
A house has been said to be divided with surely a fall, and at this point our divisions have brought us to the brink of national collapse. Here’s more from the Washington Post …
But now, concern on the right that a Democratic victory would plunge the nation into catastrophic socialism and fear on the left that a Trump victory would produce a turn towards totalitarianism have created “a perilous moment – the idea that if l ‘The other side wins, here we are,’ said Peter Stearns, an emotion historian at George Mason University.
“The two sides see each other not as opponents, but as deeply evil,” he said. “And it happens when trust in institutions has collapsed and each group chooses not to live close to each other. It seems there is no common ground.
But as I pointed out at the start of this article, for now both sides are relatively calm as they both think they are going to win in the end.
In 2016, the big national polls were completely wrong, and Trump scored a narrow victory when the mainstream media assured everyone that Hillary Clinton was inevitable to win.
And again this year, there are indications that the big national polls may be flawed and that Trump may be doing a lot better than what the mainstream media is telling us.
On the flip side, Hillary Clinton never approached the 50% mark in most national polls in 2016, and Joe Biden has consistently been above that level in recent weeks. Democratic activists would have us believe that indicates that there are far fewer undecided voters this time around.
I guess we’ll just have to wait for the real results to start coming in to see who was right and who was wrong.
Because so many Americans are voting by mail, it will take a lot longer than usual to count all the votes, and a number of key swing states are likely to be very close. If the results are close enough, it may take weeks before we have an official winner.
Once an official winner is finally declared, there will be tens of millions of Americans in deep emotional pain.
When all those deeply hurt people start to rampage, you won’t want to be anywhere.
