Demons, Satan etc aren't real. What does demonic even mean?

Anyone can interpret anything to be demonic so it's a silly statement to make. The kids don't seem too scared.

Kids are also terrified of the mall Santa yet parents continually put their little ones on a strangers lap to get a photo.

It's also purposefully misleading to link this to Michelle Obama. I'd guess she is perfectly fine with it, but it's not her library and she doesn't have any official role in the operations of it. It's a Long Beach library that they named after her.

It's not like kids went to the white house expecting to meet the Obamas and were instead sat down to drag time story hour. This was an advertised event for parents to voluntarily bring their kids to.

If someone was forcing their kids to watch shows they didn't agree with, then there could be some rational anger there. To get so worked up about these events that are completely voluntarily events for parents to intentionally bring their kids to is completely nuts.

No, no you don't understand.
It's important that people aren't allowed to take their kids to these types of events.

"The government should tell people how to raise their own children" is a long standing plank of the Republican party....wait...that doesn't sound right...are...are Republicans being hypocrites...

No, the history with all of these people is that once the "proof" they show of something is shown to be falsified they disappear because introspection or challenging their held belief isn't allowed

Special counsel Jack Smith has subpoenaed local officials in Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin — three states that were central to former president Donald Trump’s failed plan to stay in power following the 2020 election — for any and all communications with Trump, his campaign and a long list of aides and allies.

The requests for records arrived in Dane County, Wis.; Maricopa County, Ariz.; and Wayne County, Mich., late last week, and in Milwaukee on Monday, officials said.

That's a way sillier statement to make than what I said. Pretty sure if I put "demonic princess" into an AI art generator I'll get something not too dissimilar in appearance. I'm not even passing any judgment on anything but the aesthetics anyways, which I'm basically just describing.

Republicans are having a really bad day. When the boys in blue won't shake your hand, you've lost a powerful voting block.

One would think that this would finally disqualify him from running for POTUS. But this is America where s*** like this doesn’t matter anymore, so probably not. He’ll find a way to weasel his way out of this like everything else.

CFO Allan Weaselberg threw himself under the bus and said Trump didn't know what they were doing.

Warnock and Walker in a dead heat with 75% of the votes in, separated by less than 1,000 votes out of 2.6 million.

From what I've been reading it sounds like Walker has done worse than November almost everywhere. I'm guessing when all the Atlanta votes come in Warnock will take a decent lead.

Speaks volumes for politics when a guy who doesn't live there, clearly is uneducated or has taken way too many hits to the head and almost never makes any sense when he speaks can somehow be in a battle to be a U.S. Senator. Sad.

If you get a chance watch the John Fetterman debate.

Google image search then, if you don't understand. What a pointless exchange...

You really are a deplorable piece of ####. Fetterman was recovering from a stroke. His cognitive functions were not impaired, just his speech center which is common after a stroke. It very often comes back over time, something that can't be said for what Walker is suffering from.
