“For Republicans, acquisition is public enemy number one,” she said. “From her point of view, there is simply no greater threat to American freedom, whether they actually believe in it or not, they clearly think it’s a win-win message before 2024.

Psaki noticed too Conservative writer Bethany Mandelwho recently went viral for struggling to define the term “woke” during an interview about her new book, Stolen Youth.
“I mean, awakening is something that’s hard to define, and we spent a whole chapter defining it. It’s kind of understanding that we need to completely reimagine and reshape society in order to create hierarchies of oppression… Sorry that’s hard to explain in a 15-second audio clip,” Mandel said during the interview.
“It’s hard to explain. Just two cents from someone who’s done a few years in communications, if you can’t explain it and people don’t get it in 15 seconds, it might not be the winning message you think it is. So it looks like everyone can leave a flag,” Paskey said. Vigilance flies.”
After her viral appearance, Mandel said she was kicked out of existence after hearing her lecture Brianna Joy Gray on a heated microphone “Degrading parenting in general in colorful and vulgar terms, implying that parents only have children in order to perpetuate their own narcissism.”
