The Oregon Republican Party isn’t just saying “so what” about Donald Trump’s little violent insurrection party at the U.S. Capitol three weeks ago. The state GOP has officially latched onto a conspiracy theory that it was a “false flag operation.”
The party issued a resolution stating, “The violence at the Capitol was a ‘false flag’ operation designed to discredit President Trump, his supporters, and all conservative Republicans; this provided the sham motivation to impeach President Trump in order to advance the Democratic goal of seizing total power.” They’re basing this on a conspiracy website and The Epoch Times, a pro-Trump publication that’s just a prettier Daily Stormer.
Since the insurrection, over 100 of the terrorists have been arrested and they’ve all been documented as strong Trump supporters. So, if you accept the Oregon GOP’s “logic” (those are air quotes), then Trump supporters wanted to make Trump and his supporters look bad. To be fair, Trump supporters often make themselves look bad.
And the fucknuts aren’t just limited to Oregon. State party leaders across the nation are going after fellow Republicans who aren’t Trumpy enough. While the Trump cult cries about censorship and “cancel culture,” they’re eating their own for the sin of free thinking.
In Arizona, the party censured Governor Doug Ducey for defying Trump and taking the coronavirus seriously, and for not stealing the state’s electoral college votes for Dear Leader. They also censured former senator Jeff Flake and John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, for endorsing Joe Biden. The censure is a powerful thing but still, how dare they not goosestep along with the beat?
The chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party issued a statement condemning Congressman Tim Rice for voting to impeach Donald Trump.
The Oregon GOP resolution also condemns the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump stating, “The ten Republican House members, by voting to impeach Trump, repeated history by conspiring to surrender our nation to Leftist forces seeking to establish dictatorship void of all cherished freedoms and liberties.”
Certifying the winner of a presidential election, as the Constitution demands, is establishing a dictatorship? Now I know why the Oregon GOP is not taken seriously in Oregon…except you know, when they hold the door open for terrorists.
Before MAGA terrorists attacked the U.S. Capitol, they attacked the Oregon state house. One of the Republicans voting for their “false flag” resolution is chief of staff for a state representative caught on camera holding a door open for the mob.
In Hawaii, the vice chair of communications of the state Republican Party had to resign after tweeting support for Qanon, the conspiracy theory troglodytes that enable terrorists. He actually sent multiple tweets, with one saying, “We should make it abundantly clear — the people who subscribed to the Q fiction, were largely motivated by a sincere and deep love for America. Patriotism and love of County should never be ridiculed.” He also tweeted that Qanon followers are “patriots.”
Personally, I think people who believe in deep state lizard people who are Satanic-worshipping pedophiles should always be ridiculed. New Congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Green, a follower of Qanon who liked Facebook posts about killing Nancy Pelosi, should require constant ridiculing. Ridiculing ridiculous people helps make them less dangerous. She liked those posts about executing Democrats. She didn’t give them the frowny-face emoji.
Social media accounts connected to Qanon helped coordinate the terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol Police officer. Qanon has been labeled a terrorist threat by the FBI. Republicans supporting Qanon may as well be tweeting support to al-Qaida and ISIS. We have supporters of terrorists in the United States Congress.
Back at the U.S. Capitol building, in the very same chamber they had to flee because MAGA terrorists were invading, 45 Republican senators voted yesterday that impeaching Donald Trump was unconstitutional. Forget they were standing where it happened. Forget they saw it happen. Forget that the mob was out to kill them. When it comes to choosing America or their cult leader, the Republican Party chooses the cult.
Only five Republican senators voted that the impeachment was constitutional. Do you know what’s unconstitutional? Overturning an election because you don’t like the outcome. It’s unconstitutional to give the presidency to the guy who came in second in electoral votes. It’s unconstitutional to hand the presidency to a fascist dictator. It’s unconstitutional to attempt a bloody coup.
Mitch McConnell, MINORITY Leader (that looks nice in print), voted against the trial…stating it’s unconstitutional to try a former president AFTER he delayed the trial until Donald Trump…wait for it…became a former president (sic). This is the same kind of fucking logic McTortoise Face used in stealing two Supreme Court seats.
Senator Lindsey Graham gave a speech in that same chamber the night of the insurrection saying he couldn’t support Trump anymore. He said, “All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough… We’ve got to end it.” A week later, he was flying on Air Force One again. Graham voted that the Senate trial was unconstitutional. Even Riff Raff bailed on Frank-N-Furter eventually.
Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley also voted that the trial would be unconstitutional…after supporting an unconstitutional coup attempt. We’re allowing the terrorists to vote on whether a terrorist should be convicted or not.
Marco Rubio voted the same way and along with former Trump U.N. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, cried that the trial would be divisive. You know what’s divisive? Coup attempts, terrorists attacks, overturning elections, MAGA mobs of fucknuts, etc. Nikki cried that we need to “give the man a break,” casting Trump as a victim in all this. She whined that people have been going after him since before he was elected. She forgets, she was one of them before she became a Trumper. In fact, it was in her state, and at a rally she coordinated, where Marco Rubio made fun of Trump’s little penis. She laughed along. She didn’t say, “Give the man a break” when Marco was talking about Donald’s dinky dick.
There’s been talk about a huge divide in the Republican Party over choosing America or Donald Trump. There’s been speculation that the party wants to move on and distance itself from Mango Mussolino, Hair Gropenfuhrer, the Orange-Flavored Shitgibbon, Mr. I’d-Date-My-Daughter-If-She-Wasn’t-My-Daughter-MMM-MMM-MMM. But it appears that while thousands of Republicans have become former Republicans since Cheeto’s terror attack, elected Republicans and party officials are sticking with Donald Trump. They’re choosing cult over policy and an orange racist personality over country.
But people are leaving the GOP in higher numbers than usual after an election. In North Carolina, 6,000 Republicans have bailed on the party. In Arizona, 7,5000 left. Thousands have also left in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Polls show that a majority of Republicans want to move on from Trump…but it’s the terrorists the party is listening to.
Naturally, everything Republicans claim they support is something they’ll easily discard for Trump, like patriotism, family values, and washing their hands. Now, the same gang who got upset over kneeling during the national anthem, who want a Constitutional amendment protecting the American flag, are ditching the American flag for the MAGA flag.
In refusing to punish a president (sic) who instigated a terrorist attack against our nation, who tried to overturn an election, who tried to steal power for himself, the Republican Party has put cult of personality over the nation. The GOP has abandoned all principle and integrity. Donald Trump doesn’t need to create a new party because he already has. The Republican Party isn’t even conservative anymore. It’s just a cult. Instead of punishing terrorists, they’re now holding the door open for them.
The Republican Party is raising the MAGA flag and seeing who salutes.
