Click "Like" if you're radical Right!
Georgia's Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-anon/Republican) endorsed the execution of Democrats in Facebook posts.
In a January 2019 post, Greene “liked” a comment advocating “a bullet to the head” of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi...April 2018, a commenter asked, “Now do we get to hang them ??” referring to former president Barack Obama and former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, KFile reported. In response, Greene did not denounce the suggestion of execution and instead wrote, “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”
She made quite clear her radicalized ignorance and hate for the Speaker of the House, "It's a crime punishable by death, is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason!"
This dear deranged Q cult lady also believed the Sandy Hook school shooting was a staged “false flag” operation by the evil gun-grabbing deep state.
And then there’s the other deranged sweetheart of the radical Right from Rifle, Colorado.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) tweeted, “Today is 1776” on the morning of the insurrection. Just before the storming of the Capitol she declared “Madame Speaker, I have constituents outside this building right now ...”
How did she know that? Trump’s rally wasn’t outside the Capitol. But she knew where they were and what they were planning. She helped them with a personal guided tour of the Capitol Building while it was under a covid lockdown. They were not tourists. They were terrorists on a reconnaissance mission aided by an insider co-conspirator doing her part to “stop the steal”.
These conspiracy-addled nutjobs are only the two latest to infect our federal government. They have scores of like-minded radicalized fellow representatives in the House chamber.
And they have 45 Republican Senators who see no reason to hold Trump accountable for inciting a mob of terrorists with his Big Lie about the election being stolen from him.
The enemy is within.
Enemies of democracy are under the spell, or more accurately blackmailed, by their cult leader who refuses to concede the election. In their craven need for votes from Trump’s vile racist base, most of the Republican Party are more loyal to a would-be dictator, than to their oaths to our Constitution.
As a result white nationalism and radical Right terrorism are on the rise.
The crisis of our democracy will not recede until Trump is held accountable and his Big Lie totally repudiated. Sadly we are depending on the Right to hold accountable and to repudiate the radical Right.
We know the odds of that happening. They are as slim as the odds of a racist white nationalist apologizing for being a bigot and being mistaken or misled. The Republican Party is still choosing fealty to their MAGAt Mob Boss in Florida.
All the coming bloodshed will be on their hands. The blood will not be just on the hands of the “Y’all Qaeda” terrorists of the “Coup Klux Klan”. The hands of the Republican Party will be as bloody as the terrorists they coddle, encourage and abet. Remember when the Bush Administration declared those who aided and and abetted terrorists would be held just as responsible?
A California man was recently arrested for five pipe bombs, along with dozens of firearms seized at his home and business. He is one of Trump’s terrorists with a radical Right “three per-center” sticker on his vehicle.
How many more innocent Americans will be victims of radical Right terrorism? How many more will be killed and injured?
We’ll be finding out soon enough.
Just don't compare these Republican terrorists to Nazis, though.
It’s time for unity, amirite?
