Since the FBI searched the Donald’s Mar-a-lago, Palm Beach residence last week, the conservative echo-sphere has been experiencing a nuclear meltdown. From Fox News to social media, the former president’s sycophants and bootlickers have been clamouring for civil war and violence in response to their cult leader being held accountable for his actions.
“In third world countries and banana republics they prosecute the former president/leaders and their staff,” Rep. Thomas Massie tweeted. “Right now, we look beneath them.We are in a race to the bottom.”
Conservatives seem to be in a race to the bottom of the barrel.
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “Countless times we have examples of Democrats flouting the law and abusing power with no recourse. Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous. This abuse of power must stop, and the only way to do that is to elect Republicans in November.”
“This is one of the darkest days in American history,” Democrat turned Republican, Kari Lake said: “The day our government, originally created by the people, turned against us. This illegitimate, corrupt regime hates America and has weaponized the entity of the Federal Government to take down president Donald Trump. As governor, I will fight these tyrants with every fiber of my being. America – dark days lie ahead for us. May God protect us and save our country.”
“Make no mistake,” Sean Hannity said, “if you are associated with Donald Trump in any way, you better cross all your i’s and dot all your t’s, because they’re coming for you with the full force of the federal government.”
“The entity of the federal government” has been weaponized against ordinary – i.e. poor – citizens since government was a thing. Federal and local law enforcement can raid anyone’s home and murder anyone with impunity at any time. But Trump, he’s the real victim here.
“I’ve seen enough! ” Kevin McCarthy tweet-raged. “The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned. Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”
Apparently he didn’t see enough when Trump attempted to steal an election, or when hoards of butt-hurt would-be domestic terrorists came to the Capitol with a noose to hang the former vice president for refusing to declare Trump their dictator. Trump being held accountable for his actions, that’s the straw that broke the camel’s back, that’s taking things too far.
“They didn’t have a single thing on Donald Trump, and they’ve tried every trick in the book,” Jason Chaffetz said during an interview on Watters’ World on Fox. “But this is a new low Jesse. This is absolutely unprecedented. I don’t know of any justification they can do this.”
He’s absolutely correct. They had absolutely nothing on Trump. He was a flawless president. He had no scandals while president, never once violated the Constitution. The Democrats impeached him simply because they didn’t like him, because he was the greatest president we ever had. And, oh yeah, he really did win the election.
“Imagine the full force of the American justice system came down on you,” Kelly Leoffler tweeted. “I don’t have to imagine. It happened to me. It happened to president Trump. Conservatives now know it can happen to any of us.,”
It happened to Leoffler. She knows what it feels like to be stopped and illegally searched for suspicion of carrying drugs. She knows what it feels like to have law enforcement raid her home in the dead of night on suspicion of dealing drugs. She’s a black woman. She knows what it feels like to have a cop kneel on her neck for nine minutes while her life slowly fades away, as she calls for her mother to come and help her. She doesn’t have to imagine. She knows what all of that feels like, and so does poor Donald Trump because it happened to him too, and soon every conservative in America will know what it feels like, simply for being Trump supporters.
On the evening episode of Jesse Watters’ Primetime, Dana Loesch claimed there was more evidence to implicate the Biden’s than the Trump family.
“… There’s more evidence to implicate the Biden’s than ever has been, actually nothing’s been there for Trump, everything they’ve accused that family of, the former first family of, it seems like it’s the Biden’s that have done it.”
So, it was really Biden and his campaign that complained about a stolen election for weeks, complained about rigged voting machines, and ballot tampering and then convinced thousands of Trump supporters to converge on the Capitol to… convince Mike Pence that he really lost the election?
I don’t give a hoot about Hunter Biden, Hillary’s emails, Benghazi or any other whataboutisms thrown against the wall by Trump and his defenders. Every politician and their mother profit from their business dealings while in office, and it’s pathetic and laughable watching and listening to the Trump bootlickers whine and complain about how Hillary was never investigated for her emails, Benghazi, and blah blah blah blah blah. This isn’t about Hunter Biden, or Benghazi and Clinton’s emails. It’s about Trump taking classified documents that did not belong to him.
“The FBI is raiding president Trump’s home in Mar-a-lago!” Marjorie Traitor Greene tweeted. “This is the rogue behavior of communist countries, NOT the United States of America!!! These are the type of things that happen in countries during civil war. The political persecution must stop!!!”
And of course, any whining and complaining about how much of a victim he is, wouldn’t be complete without the Whiner and Complainer-in chief himself.
“These are dark times for our nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, is currently under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a president of the United States before. After I was working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the justice system, and an attack by the radical left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for president in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and conservatives in the upcoming midterm elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third World countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! ( boo hoo ) What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democratic National committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats ( the FBI, not Democrats ) broke into the home of the 46th president of the United States.
“The political persecution of president Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with the now fully-debunked Russia, Russia, Russia scam, ( note: the Russia, Russia, Russia scam was anything but a hoax – there was the Mueller report that resulted in several indictments and arrests involving Trump associates and campaign officials; and then there was the Senate intelligence committee investigation that resulted in a number of published reports that basically confirmed the findings of the Mueller investigation. Paul Manafort recently admitted to passing on campaign data to a Russian asset; this has been known for years, but since Trump himself was never implicated, it was nothing more than a manufactured hoax to destroy Trump’s presidency ), Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends, it is political targeting at the highest level.
“Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 Emails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has been done to hold her accountable. ( note: There were numerous investigations, and hearings with which she cooperated, unlike Trump and his lackeys with the January 06 investigation ) She even took antique furniture and other items from the White House.
“I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our country like we have never seen before. The establishment hated it. (note: an establishment he was part of ) Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates, win big victories and see my dominance in all the polls, they are trying to stop me, and the Republican part, once more. The lawlessness, political persecution and witch hunt must be exposed and stopped. I will continue to fight for the Great American People!”
It’s like a comedy skit, like an episode of Saturday Night Live.
