Lying is no longer an off the menu item for the Republican Party. It is now the “entrée,” and the official policy of the GOP. There is no longer any moral or ethical distinction between Fringe Cultists and “Establishment” Republicans. Lying is not just tolerated or overlooked. It is now required. It is now a prerequisite not for just admission but survival. Lie or die.
We as Americans have largely taken smug or naïve (take your pick) false comfort in the notion that “It could never happen here.” It is happening here. It’s happening in plain sight.
This is nothing short of an ongoing, pre-meditated, strategically organized coup against the government and Constitution of the United States.
Efforts are underway in GOP statehouses–and in many cases succeeding–to give purely partisan legislatures the ability to summarily and unilaterally overturn any election results they simply don’t like.
Take a moment to re-read the above paragraph.
If that’s not sedition, if that’s not illegal insurrection, if that’s not an attempted coup, what is?
This is all right out of the Goebbels Playbook. Lie. Keep lying. Lie louder. Lie bigger. Accuse others of that of which you are clearly guilty. Lie about any established fact you simply find inconvenient. Lie about any falsehood—however outrageous and factually debunked—that gets in your way.
And…REQUIRE any member of your “party” to Pledge Allegiance to Lies and Liars.
This is an ongoing attempted coup. And right now, it is right on schedule.
Dear Greg Abbott,
Don’t ever call yourself a “pro-business” governor again. Or an advocate of “local control” or autonomy. YOU, not rational opponents who challenge your manipulative insanity, are going to ruin and permanently cripple the Texas economy. In a pantheon of GOP false god governors, you are Zeus. Panderer. Grandstander. Toadie. Liar. Cynical, dishonest opportunist. You are not a “patriot.” You are not a Texan. You are not a man.
“Racist, homophobic and misogynistic.” That’s pretty much the Trifecta Ticket outta here. More on Gruden on the sports blog at this site, “The Games People Play—All Things Sports.” You’ll find it under the “Our News” tab.
