Yesterday, Jeff Flake told his party he was quitting because he cannot win reelection without compromising conservative principles to win. He told his constituents and the nation that the President was dangerous to democracy, reckless, and unprincipled.
Despite the fact Jeff Flake looked directly at the naked emperor and said, “He doesn’t have any clothes on,” no one in the Republican Party will listen to him. He may have had Bob Corker and John McCain behind him. He may even have had George Bush, Sr. and Jr. behind him. It does not matter. Ordinary Republicans are Trump’s now.
Steve Bannon responded to the news of Flake’s departure from Republican politics by saying, “Another day, another scalp.” He knows that Trump owns Republicans now. He knows what that means. Republicans are fascists now. They are white supremacists. They are theocratic with Christian dominionism as their goal. They are authoritarian. They are a touch evil now.
Think that’s too much? Read The Ingredients of Fascism, then come back here. Answer me this. Why did a group of six little old white ladies in a Scottdale, Arizona diner say they were glad to see Flake go? They were fully behind Trump.
If Flake couldn’t get fully behind the President, why these ladies were prepared to see him shove off. This vile, disgusting, widow-attacking, Nazi-supporting, crony-cabinet authoritarian President is their man. These woman have embraced evil. Fully 46% of Americans believe the mainstream media is making up fake news about the President. These people have embraced evil.
How are we going to get out of this?
