The biggest threat to our republic and American democracy is the GQP and its inability to untether itself from the malignant narcissist, demagogue, and anti-American Former Guy, Trump.
This is an astounding piece of information:
"Pollsters at PRRI recently asked Americans if they agreed or disagreed that 'the government, media, and financial worlds in the U.S. are controlled by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who run a global child sex trafficking operation.' ”
An astonishing 23 percent of Republicans agreed, and 28 percent of Republicans agreed that 'because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.' ” --EJ Dionne, Jr., WaPo
The U.S. Capitol was attacked and police men and women were assaulted. Five people died as a result of the violence, and the Trumpublican Party doesn't think a commission to investigate that attack on American democracy is necessary.
The Former Guy claimed at the convention in South Carolina this weekend that he'd be "reinstated" in the presidency in August. This is madness.
Trump's cultists believe this; Trump believes this, and the spineless GQP senators and representatives play along in Trump's psychosis.
There will be no "reinstatement." Fact.
There is no "reinstatement" clause in the Constitution, so what in hell is Trump and his sycophantic followers thinking in spreading this lunacy?
It's pretty evident that Trump has lost his marbles, and his cultists are just as crazy in following his march to insanity.
An email from a friend in Naples, Florida:
"The small minority of loud, stupid, ‘Faketriotic’ Americans who believe Trump’s megalomaniacal rants feel emboldened and validated by the overwhelming media coverage about their Dear Leader’s vision for his autocratic aspirations to ‘Save America’.
On behalf of the vast majority of quiet, sane and truly patriotic Americans let me say this: Fascist wimps are deluding themselves if they think we sane, factually patriotic Americans will remain quiet if they attempt to undo what The Greatest Generation accomplished with their lives and blood defeating the last megalomaniacal autocrat who climbed up on the world stage!"
"Faketriotics!" A perfect word to describe Trump cultists.
