Republican gamers vs. breakers
Tue Jan 12, 2021 · 82 words

In Timothy Snyder’s The American Abyss (The New York Times), he breaks down Republicans into gamers and breakers:

  1. Republicans supporting Trump’s election lies consist of gamers and breakers.
  2. Republican breakers oppose big government, elites, socialism, abortion, etc.
  3. This distracts their supporters from what the gamers are after.
  4. Republican gamers are after a narrow set of interests such as securing federal judges, tax cuts for rich, etc.
  5. Trump can no longer be a breaker, so he will become irrelevant.
