Jonathan Pie – America’s Truth – The Republican cowards.

The truth about the insurrection. The truth about lies, Trump and Republican Party. The immoral Republican Party.

Denial of truth is a cancer that is eating America.

Choose the facts – deny the evidence of your own eyes!

Two-faced Republicans exhibit moral cowardice and gross self-interest – exemplified by McConnell

It is quite incredible to see the hole that the Republican party has dug itself into. Trump, as a charismatic fascist leader, has a large and vociferous fanatical following.

The extreme fascist tendency that began with the Tea Party is now a majority of Republicans. It has been consolidated under the extreme nationalistic movement – MAGA – Make America Great Again. The traditional conservative Republicans are now a minority in the party. Without support from the Trumpist wing no Republican can become elected. So they hold the power.

Any Republican who votes against Trump is met with a tirade of threats and threat of deselection.

McConnell is two-faced and exemplifies the cowardice and self-interest that pervades the party.

McConnell was unequivocal about Mr. Trump’s responsibility for initiating the insurrection and orchestrating a coup. “There is no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” he said, and added that Mr. Trump watched the events unfold on television. “A mob was assaulting the Capitol in his name,” he said. “These criminals were carrying his banners, hanging his flags and screaming their loyalty to him.”

“This was an intensifying crescendo of conspiracy theories orchestrated by an outgoing president who seemed determined to either overturn the voters’ decision or else torch our institutions on the way out,” McConnell said.


But McConnell argued that he believed it was unconstitutional to convict a president who was no longer in office.

So McConnell knew Trump was guilty and abhorred what he had done bur recognised that in order to have a political career he had to vote to acquit.

Where does the morally bereft Republican Party go from here? Does it become more fascist and oust it’s conservative wing? Does it fight back against the fascists and reinstitute traditional conservative values and repudiate fascism? Or does it split into two – neither of which is likely to be electable?

We’ll see if there is any morality left, won’t we?

The Republican Party’s Existential Choice

There is a stark choice for the Republican Party:

a. Do they go with the Trumpists, QAnon, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, fake news and conspiracy

b. Do they go back to traditional conservative values.

There is the Marjorie Taylor Greene version – believe the QAnon conspiracy – the Democrats are all Satan worshipping paedophiles who eat babies, storm the Capitol and shoot Nancy Pelosi in the Head.

Or Liz Cheney and small government, low taxes and conservative values.

It seems to me that there is going to be a battle for the heart and soul of the party.

Personally I think Greene is an ignorant imbecile who is a danger to democracy and Cheney is just simply wrong.

What is needed is a more equal society, progressive taxes and far better public services – particularly education. If education was better we would not have so many deluded Americans ready to believe the earth is flat.
