Snippy Text Messages From The Democrats

I get dozens of political texts every month from both parties. Over the last few weeks, the GOP messages have dwindled away while the Blue Team has ramped up their efforts with ever more outlandish passive-aggressive rhetoric.

Here are the four most recent blasts, all sent between 1pm and 4pm on May 29:

============================================================

FINAL NOTICE: We need to confirm your status as a Biden voter

Failure to reply by 11:59pm will mark you as a TRUMP voter: go.demswin.io/52758

David, Ruben is getting absolutely clobbered out in Arizona.

This is a neck-and-neck race in one of the biggest toss-up states in the country. Anything can happen.

Ruben is under attack day-in, day-out — from Trump, from Kari Lake, from the establishment GOP.

They’ve committed a combined $10 million in advertising against Ruben - just to start - and more is coming at us.

But after all that, our fundraising is on the fritz. People aren’t contributing. We’re in a MAJOR slump, and that could put this entire campaign into a tailspin - and with it, control of the Senate.

Please - contribute anything you can and help us turn this around before we hit our deadline on Friday. $5, $10, $20 - anything you can. We really need this.

Thank you so much!!

I love the unspoken assumption behind all this snippiness -- you have to be counted on one side or the other. SHAME ON YOU if you don't stand up and be counted as someone who wants Joe Biden to stay in office.

Another recurrent theme from the Blues over the last week or two is the high multiple "match" from some unidentified but generous source who will chip in as much as 900% of what you do.

What a mentality! Some Got Rocks is willing to donate tens of thousands, or even millions of dollars if and only if somebody else shakes a few coins out the piggy bank to kick Trump's ass.
Of course I am just speculating about how this leveraging works in reality. In fact, I have my doubts about the factuality of this "matching" scheme.

Although I only recall a single fundraising promise of 900%, several different campaigns offered 600%. This is obviously a new "thing."

I cannot understand how anybody can take this farce of a political season seriously.

email-based spam from the dems is mind boggling. My filters catch most of it, but having stupidly been a donor prior to the 2016 debacle has me marked as a mark for all time. Literally hundreds of emails from campaigns all over the country, courtesy of NGP-VAN and its hellish spawn. I’ve finally just added the words “democrat”, “republican”, and “election” to the filters, along with “Clinton”, “Biden” and “Trump”.

I can’t imagine that this onslaught is producing any positive results for them….

@usefewersyllables For shits and giggles, I just looked in my junk mail folder and found this Irony Gem from something called the Republican Jewish Coalition:

Friend, we are writing to you today to commemorate a very special occasion for the Jewish state - today marks the 76th anniversary of Israeli independence.

This year, as the state of Israel is fighting for its very survival, we reflect on and celebrate Israel’s resilience and how important it is that the Jewish state remains strong and free.

Yom Ha'Atzmaut!

Whenever I post weird shit from my in box, invariably somebody mentions the idea of blocking this kind of crap. I never even try -- the bullshit really does amuse me. And you can pick up clues about the agenda being pushed from the various yarns being spun to fleece the sheep.

They are freaking out. The polls do not look good for them. Their main consolation prize, according to Due Dissidence, is that the Electoral College appears biased in favor of Biden.

So if they're wasting money on you, well, they're apparently running ads in New York state, where they should be winning handily.

"Israel is in the process of destroying itself" -- Miko Peled

@Cassiodorus
My assumption -- possibly in error -- is that text messaging is of negligible cost. And I live in Los Angeles.

For what it's worth, I do not believe that these Dem Fixers are worried about the election at all. They are all just riding the gravy train, doing their jobs, putting on the show.

@fire with fire I suppose, however, that if you run enough emails and texts, the cost could add up...

"Israel is in the process of destroying itself" -- Miko Peled

The matching is real and much larger than those numbers. It's called "SMURFING" and both Act Blue and Act Red are doing it. James O'Keefe III has broadcast on "X" his investigative videos of his people knocking on doors of retired seniors of minimal means who are on record as donating hundreds of times a year and tens of thousands of dollars and asking them about their donations. Most said they never donated. Act Blue and Act Red select these people from the voter rolls and make contributions in their names and without their knowledge on a massive scale. It is basically money laundering and campaign finance fraud.

It makes sense to me that they would prefer to do the same with people who have actually donated at least one time so they cannot deny ever having donated. Hence the emails.

@Bring Back Civics Thank you for this information on the "match" scam. Although I was certain that some sort of bullshit was going on, I had no clue as to what kind of scam.

Meanwhile, by no coincidence at all, I got three brand new texts from the dems referencing the Trump verdict including two new match offers:

@Bring Back Civics

I wonder if that might be an actionable cause? I’d like to find out if they’ve done it to me: I believe that making me an involuntary party to outright fraud might well be worth dropping a dime on an attorney. Discovery would be amusing, anyway.

OTC, any interest?

@usefewersyllables doing the research, but I might discuss this with attorneys here and there who just might take a case.

@usefewersyllables

I wonder if those people who have donated hundreds of times can claim it on their taxes? Now wouldn’t that be a kick in the pants?

Which AIPAC/MIC/pharma/bank bought politician are you going to vote for? Don’t be surprised when nothing changes.

Voting is like driving with a toy steering wheel.

The Civil War is now in the "gathering storm" stage.

Trump is now Goldstein.

He is the wrestling villain now cursing at the referee, revving up his fans with the image of Deep State Liberals bent of blocking the will of the American people.

Meanwhile the Blu Team believes that Trump is Hitler Redux.

When the world views clash on Election day, one side or the other will firmly believe that the election was rigged. All Hell, as Donnie Shrimpfingers says, will break loose.
