“There have always been clowns like Greene, Gosar and Boebert. Over the past two decades, the Rev. Jerry Falwell referred to the prophet Mohammed as a “terrorist,” the Rev. Franklin Graham called Islam “evil,” Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson likened Muslims to Hitler, and conservative activist Paul Weyrich condemned Bush’s “constant promotion of Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance” because “it is neither … Twenty years later, Boebert, Gosar, Greene and too many of their colleagues have abandoned those shared values. And Republican leaders, divesting themselves of shame, now tolerate the worst of humankind.”
And Professor Heather Cox Richardson included the following in her “Letters From an American” postings this morning regarding the Covid Omicron variant:
“Upon announcement of Omicron, Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), former White House physician for Trump, tweeted that the news was manufactured by Democrats to enable them to “push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election—but we're not going to let them!” he concluded.
were no COVID-related deaths yesterday in New York City, where the vaccination
rate is 90%. For adult Democrats the vaccination rate is about 90%, while the
vaccination rate for adult Republicans hovers around 60%. Counties that went
strongly for Trump have a death rate three times that of counties that voted
heavily for Biden.”
Could it be that God is punishing them? Or are they just too stupid to get vaccinated? When I read about women, even health workers, refusing vaccinations out of fear of it affecting future pregnancies, in the absence of any evidence of that whatsoever, I begin to understand the effect on the ignorant and gullible which American Nazi (sorry about that again, I mean Republican) lies are having.
Meanwhile, vital voter protection legislation sits on Congress’ back burner as both Houses try to provide enough funding to keep the government from shutting down and pursuing the rest of President Biden’s "Building Back Better" agenda. Richardson, after documenting this, grimly points out that “Protection of our elections is imperative as Trump and the Republican radicals in Republican-dominated states are cementing their hold on election systems, making it virtually impossible for Democrats to win.”
What are YOU going to do about it? Republicans must be driven from all elective offices by loyal Americans, regardless of how difficult the American Nazis (sorry again, I mean the Republicans) make it to vote.
The day is past when remaining sane Republicans can step up and save their party. They fear both primary challenges from the American Nazis on the extreme right and for the very safety of their families, as moderate Germans did in the 1930’s.
