This analogy has been so tortured over the years that Amnesty International uses it in fundraising efforts.

Daily reminder that even the Jews that collaborated with the Nazis still ended up on the trains.

GOP. Not once.

Yeah - the GOP needs to rid itself of any scraps of conscience or self awareness, at this point.
Their followers demand it.

It was only like a week ago when this guy was puffing out his chest about being an FBI agent not needing his hand held visiting a war zone:  "Dan's a Navy SEAL, I'm an FBI agent, so we can handle ourselves."

Not that the FBI should be getting threatened, but I can't help but feel not very sorry for this particular guy.

Really hope both of them get killed by their base. At this point the only way Republicans might learn they need to stop being farkers is if their own base kills them.

Now I'm rather tempted to name my cult "Grand Old Party" in my next Cult of the Lamb game.  If I do that, I'm going full sacrifice cult.
 
2022-08-16 8:53:43 AM  
So.. you're telling me they weren't backing the blue this whole time and only wanted to LARP cop powers and assumed that sucking up to the police meant they could do whatever they wanted??

Quelle, mothafarkin, supreeze.


The worst part is it almost worked.

F*ck this guy. If some MAGAt takes him out it's his own fault for hitching his wagon to a loser like dotard.

I have zero empathy for him, his supporters, his party, and his family. If he's getting threats, his own actions are why him and possibly his family are in jeopardy. I don't want one red cent spent on protection for GOPers who have spent their last 6 years fomenting the rhetoric and violence that may be unleashed upon them. It's of their own making.

So being a Trumper and living in the real world aren't actually compatible.

Huh. How about that?

The GQP rep simply has to wear a Back the Blue shirt and a USA flag as a diaper and threaten to bear spray FBI agents and collect their badges as trophies to win re-election.
Is that wrong?  Should he not do that?

That's the problem with a push toward ideological purity, the end goal of all beliefs pushing genocide of one form or another, eventually, some of the faithful are no longer ideologically pure enough themselves.

It's a dogma that even if it achieved it's ultimate goal of success ends with one person looking at themselves in a mirror shouting "IMPURE!! IMPURE!!!" before they blow their brains out, creating the perfection they were striving for.

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, a former FBI agent, is trying to tiptoe the line between being pro-MAGA and pro-law enforcement after federal agents executed a search warrant at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home last week.


Huh, so apparently you can't be both MAGA and support the cops at the same time and he finds himself in quite the pickle.

I can't wait until the GQP sheds it's last remnants of morality! I share his excitement.

Do you have any data to back that up or are you going by the logic that any FBI agent should be considered nonpartisan until they prove they are partisan?

Fitzpatrick is a carpetbagger from California that road his brother's coat tails to The House. He represents a district where the majority of GOP party members have typically been purple but are shifting more red each election. He's been walking a tight rope since elected. Every primary someone runs against him calling him a RiNo and he still wins. The Dems don't see this district as winnable and barely put up a fight.
 
2022-08-16 10:28:02 AM  
He's my congressman. His district went for Biden, but has enty of deep red.
Paints himself as the most independent member of congress, but voted with Trump most of the time and voted no to impeachment.
His challenger this time is a female veteran Apache heli pilot with a Masters from frigging Oxford. Cmon Ashley.

 "WHAT IN THE HELL DID MOLLY IVINS SAY?" The guy lowered his voice and, looking over his shoulder, said, "Well, when she spoke at the banquet, she said that the three most overrated things in America are Mack trucks, teenage pussy, and the FBI.

She credited that quote to a Texas Ranger friend of hers, cop not ballplayer.

The secret service on the other hand must carry around Art of the Deal at all times and drink flavor aid in suicide drills every day.  #45 punched one in the face, on video, and they still committed obstruction of Justice by deleting evidence.  Including on their activities from January 6th.
Presumably the FBI all just happened to take vacation on January 6th and so no one was on duty at the HQ near the Capitol to do anything.

If you are going to support the people that hate you, sometimes they are going to try to kill you.

Maybe he should do even one second of self reflection. It should not be too difficult to see where he went wrong.

Apparently the scuttlebutt is that Lochlan Murdock himself told Fox News to tone down the rhetoric because if they're overheated rhetoric gets someone killed, the FBI will go after them too.
