Right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein rightly believes there are very high stakes involved in the next election.
He’s wrong about what those stakes are. He seems to think the only options are Donald Trump… or death.
Nothing like a little hyperbole to get your point across.
“Trump or death. That’s what this is all about,” Bernstein said. “Your choice is Trump or death.”
“This is not about policy, this is not about party, this is literally about survival,” he continued. “The only one that is going to help us survive is President Trump being reelected … We’ve got to make sure that we get President Trump reelected because, as I said, it’s Trump or death.”
He never explains if the Democratic president will execute Republicans personally or if there’s a guillotine at every polling place. He’s not interested in the details at all. He just wants to scare people into voting for Trump and this is the most extreme he can get.
Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt (which he doesn’t deserve) and say he’s referring to abortion, he’s still wrong. Data shows abortion rates go down when Democrats are in charge.
In reality, Bernstein’s prediction is closer to coming true if the opposite occurs and Trump is reelected. He provokes leaders of enemy countries on social media. He appoints cabinet members who don’t take climate change seriously. He pushes policies that make life harder for LGBTQ people, increasing their risk of suicide. He doesn’t care about asylum seekers being deported back to countries they fled from to save their lives in the first place.
That’s an awful lot of death connected to this administration.
