This showed up on my newsfeed a little while ago.The Times article references a terrorism bulletin from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warning all Americans that:
“Information suggests that some ideologically motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.”
Here is a copy of that DHS terrorism bulletin. Released today, the bulletin remains in effect through April 30th.
This situation is due to the crazy rhetoric of former-president Donald Trump, as well as his sycophants in the media as well as the GOP members of Congress who keep repeating the BIG LIE that Trump actually won the election in a landslide and that due to widespread voter fraud, Joe Biden stole the election from Donald Trump, the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election.
But here are the facts
- Trump did not win
- There was no widespread voter fraud
- Joe Biden did not steal the election
- Joe Biden, not Donald Trump, is the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election
And yet most Republicans in both the House and the Senate refuse to refute the BIG LIE. They refuse to tell their constituents, in no uncertain terms, that Joe Biden won a free and fair election. They refuse to take any steps that could help to defuse these potentially dangerous threats from Trump’s army of MAGA-maniacs. And some GOP members of Congress continue to reinforce the BIG LIE.
And as Trump is about to face an impeachment trial in the Senate, most Republican senators will vote against conviction, an action that gives further credence to the BIG LIE and further incites Trump’s MAGA-maniacs to violence.
How do they live with themselves?
