Right-Wing Terrorism

From NPR : The widespread embrace of conspiracy and disinformation amounts to a "mass radicalization" of Americans, and increases the risk of right-wing violence...domestic terrorism analysts are raising concern about the security implications of millions of conservatives buying into baseless right-wing claims. They say the line between mainstream and fringe is vanishing, with conspiracy-minded Republicans now marching alongside armed extremists at rallies across the country. 77% of Trump loyalists believe that the election was fraudulent and that Trump did not actually lose - despite no evidence of that claim.  Violence is now expected from Trump loyalist groups.  Conservatives are being radicalized. It is in our backyard. Yet the previous administrators of this blog remain silent in regard to their blind complicity. 

The Dead Shell of the GOP

The American people resoundingly rejected the GOP's platform in November ( by over 7 million votes ). Biden's electoral votes have eclipsed those of Trump's 2016 victory - which he called a landslide victory . In response, fake conservatives have shouted "voter fraud" without evidence. Interestingly, these worshipers at the false altar of Trump also shouted the same in 2016 when Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million votes.  Through all of the shouting and bombastic behavior of these fake conservatives, Americans have largely moved on from the antiquated and unintelligent GOP platform .  Instead of screaming "socialism!" at anything that makes them uncomfortable , conservatives should take a moment to self-reflect on the authoritarian path they are happily sprinting down . 

Moral Bankruptcy

From the Washington Post : The intellectual bankruptcy and moral hypocrisy of many conservative leaders is stunning. People who claimed to favor limited government now applaud Trump’s use of the executive branch to undermine an election. A similar attempt by Barack Obama would have brought comparisons to Fidel Castro. People who talked endlessly about respecting the Constitution affirm absurd slanders against the constitutional order. People who claimed to be patriots now spread false claims about their country’s fundamental corruption. People who talked of honoring the rule of law now jerk and gyrate according to the whims of a lawless leader. These conservative leaders no longer deserve the assumption of sincerity. They are spreading conspiratorial lies so unlikely and irrational, they must know them to be lies.
