What I hope above all else is for liberal democrats not to think that job will be done as soon as the Orange Man is out, that everything will be fine as soon as he is no longer president. Because we will still be left with an America that voted such an obviously incompetent and dangerous buffoon in the first place (and nearly voted him for second term, if he indeed even loses!). We will still be left with an America that is more polarized now than it has been since the Civil War. We will still be left with a country that is officially "Leader of the Free World" which is deeply, deeply undemocratic in many respects. A country where both parties have grown significantly worse over the years where choosing between them opens up a whole new dimension to the phrase "choosing between two evils".
In short, to get back to their brunches and parties, thinking everything is back to normal (newsflash: it was never normal).
I agree on this, just 100%. Let's really hope they learnt from their mistakes (cuz of there were MANY) and finally look at themselves and ask: what could we do in order to avoid a similar human being as Donald Trump becomes the next President? Cuz after 8 years of Obama, they would have never imagined, even in their worst nightmares, that Trump could be president. The balloon burst in their faces. Now, after 4 years of him, I do really hope that aside pointing out the mistakes and defects of Trump administration, they also make a reflection about what they should improve, keep doing and, most importa, quit doing in order to stop the rise of the anger. Sure, Biden has way more votes (popular one) than Trump now than what Hillary had. But at the same time, Trump has gotten more votes than 4 years ago. How is that possible when he had such a painful response to COVID, plus his countless stupid and hate speeches and most important, mass media openly against him? How is possible the race is nose to nose if according to so many surveys, it was a clear Biden's victory? How is possible he almost doubled his support with the latinos? If he is portrayed as the Evil against us (thanks to the humilliation words he has had toward us) , he (and only him) and his administration jail them in cages and separated latino families? Those are questions Liberal Democrats should answer if they would not like to face another Trump in 4 years, instead of only pointing out, mocking, laughing at and deriding people who dont think like them.
The sins of the other dont make you a saint. Never.
And I agree, this is the most polarized USA society since the Civil War. And Mass Media has huge impact on this. But they dont show the minimum piece of accountability for this.
