    Default The Republican party is embracing violence in the name of Trump

    But Trumpism endures too in the party he remade in his own image. He has left behind a Republican party no longer committed to democracy. That sounds hyperbolic but, if anything, it understates the case. Republicans are breaking from the principle that precedes the idea of democracy and is even more fundamental: the belief that arguments between citizens should be resolved by peaceful means. Today’s Republican party is normalising the notion of violence as a means of securing a political outcome.

    "Studies have long shown a potent authoritarian impulse on the American right – drawn to the notion of a strong leader imposing order and guarding the nation against outsiders – one greater than in comparable countries. As always with the US, race plays a central role. Enough white Americans fear a future in which they are no longer the dominant majority and are ready to do what it takes to stay in charge: to avert demography, they’ll sacrifice democracy."

    I'm so glad it's only Trump's side causing violence.

    Phew what a relief.

    At being the enemy from within and selling its soul to Russians and Russia's bitch tRump, it appears the repuke party of a shit hole has embraced the gates of hell upon itself, in particular, at waging war on America, humanity, nature and the common decency of civilization on Earth. It's also known where each and every one of these haughty repuke and taxpayer leeching slime balls are located.

    Democrats aren't orchestrating a fake scenario about the national political scene that invites violence as a corrective. The Right's BLM comparison is ridiculous but since it's all they have we won't stop hearing about it.

    The only thing that will achieve it is fundamental political reform. And the only way you’re going to get that is mass defection from the parties. Because the parties simply do not serve our interests anymore.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    The riots, anarchy, looting, burning, assaults and murder by BLM, ANTIFA, and the rest of the far left loons have been happening for more than a year.

    The release of far left thugs from jail and zero bail or very low bail by the Democrats and defund the police have resulted in crime spiraling all over America. The police being ordered by the leadership in Democrat controlled cities not to stop the riots is unacceptable.

    The thug in Wisconsin who drove over the adults and children at a Christmas parade was released on 1000 dollar bail by a far left DA and judge earlier for driving over the mother of his child.

    The far left owns crime in America and Americans are sick of it.

    Biden polls horribly on his handling of rising crime
    By Emily Jacobs
    July 2, 2021 10:12am Updated

    Joe Biden
    Biden faces a political minefield on the issue of crime, especially ahead of the 2022 midterms.

    ‘It’s a s–t show over here’: Violent LA crime wave a result of liberal justice reforms, critics say
    Americans are giving President Biden dismal ratings on his handling of rising crime, a new poll found.

    The ABC News/Washington Post poll released Friday morning revealed that just 38 percent of Americans approve of the 46th commander-in-chief’s response to recent crime spikes nationwide.

    On the other side, 48 percent said they disapproved.

    As crime rates have continued to surge, lawmakers have been quick to point fingers to avoid their party taking blame.

    Republicans have largely argued that Democrats’ efforts to defund the police, remove qualified immunity for police officers and introduce cashless bail have all contributed to the budding crime wave crisis.

    The Democrats own crime and violence in America.
