“I alone can fix it.”
Apparently not. Yes. There was an attempt to “fix” the 2020 presidential election. Absolutely. Fortunately, Donald Trump did not succeed in that attempt.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, WWII historians. “Accuse others of that which you are clearly guilty.” J. Goebbels had a way with words, doncha think?
Hey, that’s not me making the Nazi analogy. That’s General Mark Milley, who had every reason to fear that Le Grande L’Orange would attempt a military coup to retain power after he was voted out of office. Milley, as quoted: “These guys are Nazis. These are the guys we fought in World War Two.”
Don’t stop now, General. You’re on a righteous roll. “We’re gonna put a ring of steel around this city. The Nazis are not getting in.”
“Reichstag.” “Coup.” In the name of “Make America Great Again.”
Milley was true to his oath to defend the Constitution, creating an ingenious contingency plan to prevent Trump from using the U.S. military to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. We are in your debt, General.
Just parenthetically. I am disgusted by the way the term “patriot” has been co-opted and bastardized by seditionist insurrectionists who are anything but patriots. They are in fact traitors. No? If that’s not treason, what is?
Two things can be true at once. Yes, it was long past time for us to get out of Afghanistan. But, yes, our exit is now enabling a shameful bloodbath. I applaud W for acknowledging and decrying that.
Tenses matter. I was going to say we are in danger of blowing it—once again—in our “fight” against COVID. But the truth is we’ve already blown it—once again. There are no bigger losers than ignorant cowards who just refuse to win.
