Leading Republicans are in thrall to a dangerously conspiratorial view of the US government.



After news of the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home broke on Monday night, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded by openly threatening Attorney General Merrick Garland.

"The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization," he said in a statement. "Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar."

Think about this for a second. Here you have the likely next speaker of the House claiming without the tiniest shred of evidence that the Justice Department is persecuting a former president - and vowing to use his authority to punish them as a result. His response to his baseless claim of the politicization of investigative powers is to promise a politicized investigation of his own.

You find that scary but not this, go figure...

recently re-emerged clip of Schumer warning that Kavanaugh and fellow conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch would "pay the price" for opposing abortion rights in 2020.

Yea, republicans are destroying the country to protect the fatass conman that tried to overturn an election, but you can buy some sweet conspiracy merch from them on IG.

Qrump is the salvation of the democrats! The far right has proven themselves ineffective and beholden to a platform that alienated large groups of Americans. They are pasty and have weaknesses that range from the Bible to food and strippers.

Not really frightening. Just a bump in our great history.

It's ok. Progs scare easily. See, e.g., the great covid panic. A Congressman performing his oversight duties is calculated to scare progs.

The fact that they fully embraced the Alex Jones world view about the time Obama got elected should have been the warning bell. What is crazy is that the Kevin McCarthys and Mitch McConnells and Ron Desantises don't really believe any of that shit. They are cynically appealing to the Truthers and the Birthers and the Pizzagaters in order to court their vote knowing that all traditional Republicans will hold their nose and vote R no matter how crazy as long as they think that R will keep the government from taking their stuff and giving it to undeserving people. The collateral damage is that they are managing to mainstream some really far our shit like that historically pedaled by fringe Alex Jones, Joe Mercola, etc... types.

Trump put a link to his donation site on his outraged social media post. lol

All the time. Pretty routine in situations like that, actually.

Then why did he say only criminals do it? Do his words mean nothing?

All of you know he lost the election. All of you know he deserves the scrutiny.
All of you know he is a lout. Enough with the feigned outrage already.
