    Unexpected decency, if you have occasionally seen this guy's tweets or heard his radio show.

    Edit: And of course, his former fans are in disarray.

    Decency? Or what he sees as necessary to preserve the party from the hide-skinning that it has amply earned?

    trump used the teamtrump Twitter account so now that's been banned. The man with the nuclear launch codes is too dangerous to have a Twitter account.

    Hey, it's more decent that making tortured comparisons to what Democrats have done in the past to normalize Trump's crimes.

    Editorial: Resign, Senator Cruz. Your lies cost lives.

    In Texas, we have our share of politicians who peddle wild conspiracy theories and reckless rhetoric aiming to inflame.

    Think U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert’s “terror baby” diatribes or his nonsensical vow not to wear a face mask until after he got COVID, which he promptly did.

    This editorial board tries to hold such shameful specimens to account.

    But we reserve special condemnation for the perpetrators among them who are of sound mind and considerable intellect — those who should damn well know better.

    None more than U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.

    On Dec 21 extremists raided the Oregon State Capitol, attacking journalists & police

    Now video shows GOP Oregon @RepNearman
    open two doors to let the violent terrorists illegally enter the Capitol. The “law & order” party continues to enable terrorists.
    Twitter Link

    Video clearly shows Rep. Mike Nearman helping right-wing demonstrators breach Oregon Capitol

    Are you going to insist that they or whoever else does it though?

    In either case, I don't know if there is enough to convict, which has to be a very high bar.
    Whether there is "enough to convict" or if the bar is high enough, that's for the Judge to decide, that's also an issue for the Defense.

    You are not a paid member of Donald Trump's defense or a judge. You are a citizen.

    Are you as a citizen going to insist on accountability, and specifically calling your party to task?

    With Cruz and Hawley, the specific question is the standard to either convict them or remove them from the Senate.

    There are plenty of members of congress who show piss poor judgment and should not hold the office they do. The main way to get rid of them is to vote them out, or in some extreme cases, pressure them to resign (something that has only happened three times in my lifetime.)
    Okay, but do you, as a citizen -- not as a pundit (which you are not), not as a political strategist (which you are not), not as a campaigner or canvasser (which again you are not) -- do you as a citizen consent that Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley should resign.

    Do you agree that Mr. Cruz and Mr. Hawley should accept responsibility and set an example by resigning the way that Al Franken resigned after pressure from his fellow party members? The way John Conyers did?

    There's a reason that the title of one of the more famus books about Nazi germany is 'They Thought They Were Free'.

    I was listening to the album "Bob Belden: When Doves Cry - The Music of Prince" and decided to see whatever became of singer Phil Perry, who I quite enjoyed in the past.

    The guy is full on MAGA now, claiming Antifa stormed the Capitol. I might have to throw out some vinyl albums.

    https://twitter.com/PhilPerry

    Oh, and the album also includes vocals by Cassandra Wilson, who is also MAGA. Maybe they radicalized each other.

    Has anyone brought this up on the sickness of this. the depraved of the mind.

    During the MAGA Rally, Trump told his cult fans that they are going to match to the capital and he would match with them but then he leaves and goes back home to the white house NOT MATCHING WITH THEM but they go anyway without their leader Trump.





    I hope I don't get banned for saying this but those MAGA Cult folks must have been beyond brainless and dumb with the lowest of IQs not to have figured that Trump was not in front matching with them even if he promised he will be there to lead them but they go anyway, storm the capital injure hundreds and kill 5. sorry not sorry for calling them brainless.

    This is beyond brainwashing, this people at this point are zombies.

    What a disgrace.

    ^^One of the most interesting things about the Cult of Trump, to me, is that he so clearly only cares about himself. These people have hitched their wagon so completely to a man that does not care about them, at all.

    They won't. It's always on its way. They also don't even know what socialism is, just that it's bad because they've been told it is bad. We are, after all, talking about a group of people who for all their waving the constitution around, do not understand the 1st amendment. Which, in case you're keeping track at home, is the first thing on it.
