    Assuming Biden wins, where does it go from here? Do the establishment Dems let them run wild or tell them to sit down and shut up? Do mostly peaceful protests continue and police get defunded or do these people go home and get jobs?

    The fact that Trump did significantly better this election than in 2016 with women and minorities makes me hopeful that as a nation we're getting sick of third wave feminism, intersectionality, and critical race theory.

    What do you guys think is going to happen with this extremely vocal minority on the left over the course of the next presidency?

    Bonus question: are they coming for my guns? (Probably not without a majority in both houses of Congress)

    Of course it's going to get louder.

    The reason it seemed like Trump made it worse was because he was getting in its way. It's a current that nobody wants to fight and it's getting worse and worse

    There is no clear objective for blm and antifa other than rioting and looting for personal gain. There's no reason for it to stop.

    I hope this nonsense will fade away : maybe these useless garbage-people realise that Trump wasn't the source of their problems rather than themselves.
    The shit is way too ridiculous not to start deteriorating from within.
    On a corporate level, money matters so once the trend buckles, so shifts the focus of virtue-signalling..

    Obviously going to fade a bit (just as it was obvious that the Tea Party protests would stop when Trump won), though your theory about it is silly ("establishment Dems" having some kind of control or even speaking in a unified voice). For one thing, people tend to have strong reactions against the president, and for another, the kind of anti-everything people were able to claim the high ground when Trump is the face of the gov't, but that'll be different when he's not.

    It will fade a bit. When Trudeau got caught with black face the outrage was muted. Similarity, Obama was able to get away with torture and drone wars without much complaint.

    It will be like a plague. With no strong opposition, it will become the norm. People will join the cult just not to get canceled. There will be no significant push back, because libtards are insane, and normal people don't wanna fight the insane. They wanna be left alone, in their normal lives. It's the crazies that are willing to make all the noise. The mentally damaged, the drug addicted, the kids with BS degrees that can't find jobs, the oppressed Starbucks workers. It's a fucking army.

    The core of modern politics is the question of genetic determinism vs. environment and upbringing.

    What it comes down to is, as we become more sophisticated in our genetic modification abilities and our understanding of human behavior (gathered by the massive computers that we use to track behavior), how do we deal with the objective, scientific reality that over 85% of behavior and intelligence is completely decided genetically, vs. the foundation of Western Civilization and Libertarian Free Will, that says all humans are created equal as a blank slate?

    Both the Republicans and the Democrats do not want to even start having this conversation and until this conversation is had, there is no future for America nor any country in the world going forward.

    This is the true core of it all and if you disagree, you are not intelligent.

    It will get worse, but we can just blame Biden for all of America's imperfections now so it's ok.

    I'll go with fade away piece by piece. Yea there's still going to be some super protest when the next guy resisting arrest gets shot in the back or something, but the everything-is-protest mentality will die down a lot because with Trump gone the outlet for their rage isn't the same. Locked in the house and girlfriend left you? You're not raging at Biden for that, so you're gonna see a drop.

    Further shift to the left. Biden is just a puppet.

    The USA are proving how badly identity politics and cultural marxism are. This country used to be a role model for the entire world, today it's a warning example.

    hiya Canned Tuna,

    "being woke" isn't like Qanon or pretending to be a fiscal conservative or a Tea Party Patriot. its not a pose.

    being aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues as they relate to racial and social justice is part of the raison d'etre of liberals. its not going anywhere.

    you might as well be asking, "now that Biden is President, are rightwingers going to stop indulging in industrial strength conspiracy theories?"

    *salutes*

    You assume they’re reasonable...

    It’s like spoiled childern kicking and sceaming until they get what want. They won’t stop cause you give them what they want, they’ll just demand more.

    It will fade slowly. Young people think this is new, but it's been going back and forth like this for ages. The civil rights movement led to the Regan Era and which led to PC culture in the 90s which led to the edgy/offenseive/shock entertainment culture of the late 90s and early 00s which led to the me too and woke movements.

    When the whole culture is ready to collectively roll it's eyes at the woke movement it will become a cultural puchline like political correctness and the cycle will repeat.

    Somewhere between the second and third option.

    It will fade. Not completely, of course, but a little. Culture tends to flare in the opposite ideological direction of the presidency. The most liberal cultural periods in US history were under the presidencies of Nixon, Reagan, and Trump. The most culturally conservative periods were under Clinton and Obama.
