The Dixie Dems: Cutting Through the Republican BS


On this Dixie Dems episode of the Lean to the Left podcast, you'll see -- or hear -- Georgia Republican wacko Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene laud President Biden for all of the great work he's done since his election. Yes, that's true. In fact, so true that the Biden campaign has turned those comments by Greene into a killer TV ad.


Also on this episode, you'll see -- or hear -- a Republican Congressman inside a couple's bedroom while they are preparing to have sex and tell them they're not allowed to use contraception. Yep, that's right. It's an ad Democrats are running in Ohio, and while funny, it's a warning of how the GOP is trying to interfere with our personal lives.


All of that, plus discussions about the No Label party and efforts by some moderates to establish a bipartisan ticket to challenge Biden and the eventual Republican nominee, as well as key political issues percolating in southern states and nationwide.


Indeed, check out the Dixie Dems cutting through the Republican BS as the 2024 election campaign begins to heat up.


Remember, the Dixie Dems is the monthly podcast from Lean to the Left, which takes an irreverent look at politics in our region and nationwide. Joining me on the episode, as always, are Arthur Hill, from North Carolina, and Robert Thompson, from Georgia.


Arthur is first vice chair of the Brunswick County, North Carolina, Democratic party. Robert Thompson is based in Atlanta and founded Peach News Now and its opinion podcast, Got Damn Liberals.


Me, I’m based in South Carolina, the state where two Republican candidates are taking on Donald Trump in the Republican presidential sweepstakes. They, of course, are former SC governor Nikki Haley, former UN ambassador for Trump, and Sen. Tim Scott, the only African American GOP US Senator.


on July 1 Trump took over Main Street of the tiny town of Pickens located in the hills of our state, where he drew a big crowd of supporters…some estimates as high as 50k, although that was in dispute by some attendees. However, it was hot and thousands stood for hours to hear this man. Some even got sick from the heat. Incredible.


At any rate, it was on the home-state turf of Haley and Scott, two long-shot candidates who are trying to wrest the GOP nomination from him.


“2024 is our final battle,” declared Trump. “Under our leadership, the forgotten men and women will be forgotten no longer.”


Same old message, reprised from his previous campaigns. Same old song. And the people lap it up.


In North Carolina, Arthur Hill discusses a groundbreaking decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on gerrymandering, which he said Democrats were applauding as crucial to fair elections, both in the Tar Heel State and nationwide.


In Georgia, Thompson discusses upcoming potential indictment of Donald Trump in the case involving the former president's ill-fated effort to convince state officials to simply "find" him the 11,000 votes he would have needed to carry the state in the 2020 election.


There is much, much more in this episode as the Dixie Dems cut through typical and ongoing GOP BS.
