Think of it as a sliding scale.

  • You start with "openness to new ideas."
  • Then move into "willingness to hear the other side."
  • Then, "both sides make good points."
  • Then, "To be honest, I'm not sure what I think about this anymore."
  • Then, "I've actually come around on this issue."
  • Then, "I don't feel like I used to about that."
  • Then, "I've changed my mind."
  • Then, "Truthfully, I've done a complete 180 on that."

Then, after about twenty other slight changes, you begin to border on the epic flip-flop – like Olympic gymnast kind of flip-flop – that race activist, justice grifter, and alleged-white-man-posing-as-black-for-profit Shaun King just pulled.

Brace your neck before reading this to avoid whiplash:

Now, before you go concluding that he just exposed himself to be a mere political opportunist with no actual convictions or principles, let's pay close attention to the original tweet. He clearly stated that he was "99% sure" that he would never support Biden or Harris.

Lucky for the Democrats that the stars aligned for that 1% to pull through.

How some of these people sleep at night is really a remarkable feat.
