This undemocratic moment must be met head on
…from MSNBC with Steve Schmidt, Lincoln Project
“We must start by telling the truth” — Jim Messina
“Thank you for saving my life, and fuck you for coming.” — Capitol police officer
[ Editor’s Note: After the initial shock and confusion of the attack on the Capitol, it is becoming clear even to some of the idiots now, that it was an overt attempt to overthrow the legally elected government on the United States, and not an exercise in free speech.
Joe Scarborough quotes Jim Messina rhetorically, in that everything done in trying to fix the problem now has to be rooted in truth, which is a huge challenge, as the truth represents a major threat to legions of people in power.
Just ask Donald Trump, or think 9-11, or think Israeli espionage, or think of American exceptionalism as a smokescreen for the huge international criminals to hide behind to make themselves untouchable. Think evil on steroids.
The Lincoln Project’s Steve Schmidt put the hammer not only on Trump and the Trumpers, but their entire fascist support group, using Kevin McCarthy has his perfect foil. McCarthy did not blink at proceeding with the attempt to overthrow the election to Trump.
“Before we can talk about reconciliation, we must talk about accountability, we must talk about justice, we must talk about punishment for the violence done to the United States.”…”So our offer on the table for the seditionists is a fight where we will bring you to submission”. Steve Schmidt.
This is a masterpiece, and something to copy and save. Schmidt has a gift for crystal clear messaging with no hype, that no one should have any difficulty in understanding… Jim W. Dean ]
