The Republican candidate for Virginia’s governorship said it was “weird and wrong” for a bunch of his supporters to pledge allegiance with a flag supposedly from the January 6 white nationalist terrorist attack on our capitol building. Well, Glenn, they’re your people. They’re your supporters. They just also happen to support insurrection, overthrowing an election, installing a fascist dictator, white nationalism, terrorism, and killing cops. You wonder if this was one of the flags that was on a pole used to beat cops.
During a rally for Youngkin on Wednesday, which Youngkin said, “I wasn’t involved,” a bunch of his supporters pledged allegiance to a flag they claimed was at the January 6 insurrection to overthrow an election and install Donald Trump as a fascist dictator. Youngkin said, “we shouldn’t pledge allegiance to that flag. And oh by the way, I’ve been so clear, there is no place for violence — none, none — in America today.” Yeah, Glenn, except you’re a Republican.
The Republican Party is more of a cult now than an actual political party. Why, if they can’t win an election, they’ll try to overthrow the government. Today, they complain the election was corrupt and full of malfeasance, so the answer to that is to create more malfeasance by restricting voting by color.
The Republican Party has made Donald Trump a cult leader. And while Youngkin says he’s not into the violence or the election lie of the GOP, he’s more than happy to have the endorsement of the guy who instigated a white nationalist terrorist attack. The rally featuring the flag carried by terrorist also featured Steve Bannon, who the House wants to answer questions about the terrorist attack. This rally featured Amanda Chase, who was at the insurrection cheering it on. This rally featured a phone call from Donald Trump himself,
While accepting the endorsement of racist white nationalist Trump, Youngkin doesn’t want to be seen with the guy. But during the call to Youngkin’s rally, Trump said he was open to campaign for Youngkin. I hope he does.
Youngkin says he doesn’t endorse the violence of the January 6, but he sure does attract people who do. It’s like a candidate saying he’s not a racist while Nazis are voting for him.
Creative note: I drew a cartoon this morning, then put it aside when I got this idea. I went back and forth over which one I should go with and finally settled for this one. That meant I had to start over at 10:00 A.M. But, I’m going to show you the other one later today (it’s already on social media). You can tell me which you like better.

So, the Right WIng Nutjobs had their Horst Wessel in Ashli Babbitt, and now have their very own Blutfahne.
Clay, using a line from Jonathan Capeheart on PBS Newshour, this is “reprehensible.” Pledging allegiance to a seditious action as well as allegiance to the most deceitful, corrupt and seditious acting former president is mind-boggling. And, what is so very frustrating is the sycophants who do not call this out. I knew and know Trump would sue to avoid losing the election and would lie about winning. Even Bernie Sanders predicted precisely what Trump would do just following the election night. But, even Sanders could not predict that Trump would cause an insurrection against a branch of government. Only Bill Maher saw it about three years ago – he feared Trump would refuse to leave office.
Trump lost because he got fewer votes and fewer votes in key states. He is making a fuss as his ego is so fragile, he will “burn it all down to avoid losing the election” per his niece Mary. That is a toddler pitching a bloody fit, not a seventy plus year old person. Keith
