"Own the libs" - Did Trump even succeed at THIS as the US increasingly looks at hard left ideas?

"Own the libs", it's a purely id-driven thing... Sticking it to the liberals, measuring how good X is by nothing else other than how much liberals are hurt or humiliated by that X.

Vote for Trump to "own the libs"
Pardon Joe Arpaio to "own the libs"
And more:
The Summerís Hottest Trend Is Owning the Libs
Governing by Owning the Libs
How 'owning the libs' became the ethos of the right
Trump's new website is all about how to own the libs during the holidays

When Democrats briefly had the White House, House, and Senate back when the "socialist Muslim antichrist" Obama was president; "Defund the Police" wasn't on the table, "Autonomous Zones" weren't on the table, "Guaranteed Minimum Income" wasn't on the table, "ANTIFA IS COMING TO A NEIGHBORHOOD NEAR YOU" wasn't a thing, the NRA wasn't on it's last legs, there's wasn't as much looking at white nationalists and the far-right as terrorist entities as there is NOW, and I think one could even bring up more things.

The right spent years, YEARS, demonizing liberals and liberalism... any accusation you could make: soft on terror, soft on crime, sexual deviant, want to use drugs, coddle criminals, want to spend money on post-modern art over police spending, take your guns, liberals aren't just wrong but EVIL, turn "liberal" itself into a pejorative. And to what? Eliminate a whole side of the political spectrum? What did they think was going to happen? That we'd have a one-winged political system?

The thing about liberals is that they ultimately work inside the system, right? Reform, change through legal and political means, and compromise. You right-wingers made them invisible, tried to turn liberal itself into a bad concept, and look at what happened. You unleashed the beast when you started on this path and got it to a fever pitch with "own the libs" as a campaign strategy.

It's funny how ultimately those "crazy liberal" positions are starting to look like the reasonable positions as we're going from "HAHA OWN THE LIBS" to "SAVE US, LIBERALS". But don't worry, there will be accountability for all the blood and damage it took to get here.

1. Seems to have been an escalation since Reagan...

culminating with the election of an African American President that set the nutjobs off.

Tit for the Tat the right fronts a fascist sociopath in Trump, who is a con man and ratf*cker.

Along comes tragedy of George Floyd and the momentum has shifted, the left, the sane people are done with it.

We are rising up against this owning the libs, the christofascist agenda the worst President ever to sit in the Oval Office.

We just have to keep up the pressure, all while trying to keep ourselves healthy and our economy from crashing entirely.

Easy Peasy, lol.

F**k Trump and the racist right.
