Liz Cheney recently asked: “What kind of man knows that a mob is armed and sends the mob to attack the Capitol and further incites that mob when his own vice president is under threat? When the Congress is under threat?”
She framed an answer in a speech on June 29th 2022: “At this moment, we are confronting a domestic threat we have never faced before– a former President who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our Constitutional Republic.”
THAT kind of man.
But the logical follow-up question is just as important.
What kind of people support a man who sends an armed mob to the Capitol to overturn our election? Almost an entire political party and almost half the voters are enemies of democracy. This is how a republic ends.
This Fourth of July, let’s keep in mind what they have done, and what they are doing to our rights, what they are doing to our elections, and what they are doing to our country.
As the Founders roll in their graves this Independence Day, let’s take up our sacred cause of liberation and declare independence from authoritarian minority rule. Let’s dedicate our actions, energy and votes to a revolution of democracy against the seditionist liars and traitors of the radical Right.
It’s not 1776, people.
