RICO the party

They want to set up a near identical scenario in 4 or 8 years where they can leverage loyalty over patriotism to overthrow elections in their favor. This attempt was a rough draft of what they will attempt later.

If you RTFA, you find that two of the three replacements are people who spoke against the silliness. So I wonder if they have been bribed or this is some sort of "we have to ditch this one person to satisfy the nutsos" thing.

UNC_Samurai: RICO the party


Yeah, I used to link popehat's "It's Not RICO, Dammit!" rant when people said this.  I'm now beginning to think they may qualify, after the real damage done to a Federal Building.  And of course there have been many, many calls for a RICO case for money laundering.

I'd be more inclined to see the Trump Crime Family sent up on RICO charges.  I think they are as bad as any mafia "family", certainly.

How can any women of color be Republicans?

Okay... except Cubans. They're damn near as racist as white folk.

All this inward eating is gonna look really good for the brand.

They understand the difference between the house and the field.

Money. You get a "ignoring your conscience" bonus.

Republicans would rather live in a failed state than see another black person win an election.

They seem quite committed to that goal.

Cubans and Puerto Rican can be white unless they are in Texas then their Mexican. My Puerto Rican friends love that.

Mexicans can be white and Jewish too. See Spanish inquisition.

The Overton Window shifts a little more towards outright fascist dictatorship.

The GOP is a cult.
 
2021-01-18 6:44:51 PM  
OK, so they nominated one crazy person and two sane (for republicans) people who both said the fraud claims were BS.  Whitmer gets to choose among those three.  She won't pick the crazy one, so I don't really see a problem.

Being a minority doesn't make you immune to being stupid.

FTFA: "My conscience is clear, and I am confident that my decision is on the right side of the law and history," Van Langevelde said in a Monday statement. "Time will tell that those who spread misinformation and tried to overturn the election were wrong, and they should be held responsible for the chaos and confusion they have caused."

One needs to wonder why people like this still want to belong to the Republican party.

Man. Why didn't we think of that before? Only Certify Republicans.  Always WIN!

SOUNDS PERFECT!

This tells me the GOP is hellbent on a path to Trump Coup 2, Election Boogaloo

Rather than having to repeatedly deploy the Natl Guard... the govt at whatever level will  come to the realization that it's cheaper to snuff that flame at its source.

This was never a trump thing. He's gone, but the craven corruption and craziness will not go away. This isn't over by a long shot.
 
2021-01-18 10:28:47 PM  
I called it before the coup attempt. Republicans have learned that they can claim EVERY election they lose is stolen. Every time, no consequences. Senate race in Hawaii? Rigged. School board member in a town of 1000 people? Rigged.

They are avowed enemies of the republic with an explicit message: rules don't apply to us. Treat them with the violence and contempt they deserve.
