A clown in a troupe. The GOP has evolved from stodgy good-old-boy corruption to full-on dancing, japing mental illness. Hey, whatever pays.

The GOP and its base are ready and willing to go full on Nazi given enough political cover. And Glenn Greendouche will cheer them on.

It's looking like him and Matt Taibbi have become the latest "totally not sucking up to the GOP" "journalists" taking that sweet right-wing cash.

Marj is cranking up the pace. She went after another House Republican:

Quote:

"@NancyMace is the trash in the GOP Conference," tweeted the Georgia Republican about her colleague from South Carolina on Tuesday morning. "Never attacked by Democrats or RINO's (same thing) because she is not conservative, she's pro-abort. Mace you can back up off of @laurenboebert or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad. Your out of your league."
This after Mace called out Boebert for calling Omar a terrorist. And, it led to this response from Mace:

Quote:

"This is what [bat emoji, poop emoji, clown emoji] looks like."

Is the same gibbering dip-**** who composed Donny's tweets now doing Marj's for her?

Also, your, you're, yore, yaw - pick the right one.

Remember Michele Bachmann? She's looking sane and rational compared to the current crop of Republicans.

Seems to me it's only a matter of time before Boebert, MTG, or some other fashy grandstander physically accosts someone on the Congressional floor, like the famous caning by Brooks.

People like Omar and AOC would probably be well advised to learn some basic martial arts or arm themselves to be able to defend themselves from some assault/political stunt by these losers.

I'd strongly advise such persons not to arm themselves, since that would provide an excuse for assault, if not, in these strange days, a defense for self-defense. Don't expect to win a pissing contest with someone who is full of it.

The type of people that support these freaks see little dishonor in beating the snot out of some totally defenseless. In fact, decisively shutting up some wimp who dared challenge their worldview is probably something that would make them very happy. Brooks gave a defenseless Sumner a debilitating TBI during a premeditated attack and was lauded as a hero of the slave South for doing so.

I would see little benefit in being open about such training or arming, but a lot in doing so. You don't actually have to strut around showing off like a right wing psycho to be able to defend yourself.

There's no reason to threaten violence or be provocative, but they should be thinking carefully about how they will deal with violent aggression from the right that increasingly seems inevitable. People like Omar or AOC would be the first to be targeted should such a complete breach of civility occur, there's really no way for them to "wait and see". The right is telegraphing this quite clearly.

I agree in principle, but I do not think that principle rules in practice any more these days. In a world where people can accuse their opponents of terrorism for their religious beliefs, their leader, two of whose three wives immigrated and at least one violated immigration law, can insult a congresswoman for immigrating, and where calls for the assassination of political and ideological opponents are tolerated by the colleagues sitting in the same chamber, principle is fraught with crazy consequences. If I were in the position of Omar and co., I'd certainly want to bone up on martial arts and other protective stratagems, but I'd leave the weapons at home.

Omar, Cortez and co. are considered by many a threat by their very existence. I would confidently expect that if any were known to carry a weapon, it would be perceived as such a threat that they would be gunned down pre-emptively, and their murderers congratulated, if not awarded medals.

You have to suspect that people like MTG and Boebert and their supporters are trying to see how far they can push this behavior short of shooting someone on the House floor.

Honestly, can you say that their most rabid fans wouldn't be laughing and clapping if Omar or AOC were maimed by a MAGA terrorist? Go look at the rightwing response to AOC's past sexual assault and tell us they wouldn't.

I wouldn't be so sure that all of these politicians are just grandstanding. The right wing is very much in touch with their rabid base, and I imagine there will be more and more "true believers" in halls of power as time goes on.

MTG specifically strikes me as someone with a tenuous grasp on reality.

Some people believe everything they read, I guess. AOC is an attention whore. It is hard to believe anything she says.

Norman Alexander 1st December 2021 01:09 PM

Omar and AOC will undoubtedly already have heavy official security provided as part of their job. And extra measures as the result of death threats. In Congress, there are no guns allowed except by the designated security forces. Should any of the right-wing crazies even threaten to physically assault others, that would lead most likely to laughter. As well as mentally, both MTG and Boebert are tiny little people physically. Despite her gym-bunny background, MTG might be able to lift a desk but she is not a fighter. Boebert is just a racist loudmouth pipsqueak without her guns. They talk big but they wouldn't dare. Omar and AOC are safe enough there.

It would give pause to most decent, thoughtful people when they hear something like that. It's not unbelievable. But the response is callous indifference and even amusement, because whether the MAGA base admits it or not they largely supported what happened on Jan 6. Maybe you do too.

Yea but they are not always on the floor and they are allowed to carry in the capital just not on the floor, something they find objectionable and were fined for dodging around security so they could bring their guns onto the floor.

You don't remember the horrific Bowling Green Massacre where liberals attacked innocent conservatives who were saying Merry Christmas to each other IN PUBLIC and then held them down to be Covid vaccinated? How soon we forget these atrocities.

OK, I checked the calendar and the House and Senate are both in session. Has Marjorie Taylor Greene been on Steve Bannon's show every day this week? I think that she has. I know that she doesn't have committee work, but she sure has a lot of time to do media hits during the work day.

This stuff is great. On the one hand we have a discussion of how dems need to arm themselves to protect themselves from this gop threat. On the other hand, we have dems wishing death upon gop members.

At some point you might think a moment of introspective thought might occur.
