The Chairman Of The Republican National Committee Called The Violent, Deadly Trump-Inspired Insurrection At The Capitol  “Legitimate Political Discourse”. That Statement Confirms The End Of The Former Republican Party. It No Longer Supports Democracy.  The GOP Now Supports 1) Overturning Elections They Lose, 2) Condones Violence Against Law Enforcement, 3) Rejects The Two-Party System, And 4) Supports Stealing Future Elections They Lose.

This statement is an example of one of the dumbest, most unpatriotic examples of Republican gaslighting to date. The whole world watched the brutal beating of police officers and the physical defiling of our historical Capitol, the seat of democracy. The world heard the violent, verbal cries to harm Speaker Nancy Pelosi and to hang VP Mike Pence. A new video released today from the insurrection showed a MAGA rioter saying if he found Pence or other members of Congress he would, ” drag those mother—fkrs” through the streets”. Violence, hatred, vengeance, and a warped understanding of what democracy means now defines the Republican party and exposes they now stand for one ideology: POWER.

Immediately after the Capitol attack Sen. Mitch McConnell said, “There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. He did not do his job. He didn’t take steps so federal law could be faithfully executed and order restored.” Echoing the same sentiments was the now cowardly, emasculated Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy who said, “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.”

The Republican leaders spoke the truth after the insurrection. However, they have been brow-beaten into wimp -like submission by Trump, a laughable symbol of an elderly- styled faux bully. McConnell is no fan of Trump, however his avoidant silence on Trump’s “big lie” and attack on decency, American values, and democracy render him unworthy to serve in the Senate. Kevin McCarthy is worse than Mitch, if that’s possible. He defends everything Trump does and says, no matter how illegal or immoral. He is an unashamed bootlicker and normal, educated Americans cringe at the sight of him.
The party of law and order has mocked the Capitol and DC police, who have gone public about the violent beatings they suffered at the hands of the Trump rioters on Jan. 6th. Elected officials refuse to public condemn Trump for the ” big lie” that says he won the election. The majority of the GOP in Congress reject the Jan. 6th Committee’s investigation into the planning, financing, and support of the insurrection. Republicans now bow to wacky conspiracy theorist members of their caucus because Trump loves them. Every GOP Senator except a few, like Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski and every Gop House member except Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, will be remembered in history as complicit in the weakening of our democracy and for supporting a criminal autocrat who will undoubtedly be named as the worst, most dangerous president in U.S. history.


The Republican party no longer cares about small government, law enforcement, a balanced budget or the military. They now refuse to talk policy. They care only about pleasing Donald Trump, the one-term, Constitution violating, law- breaking, lying, criminally-accused autocrat who wants America to be indefinitely under his rule. He is the antithesis of everything American. The majority of Republican-elected officials know he is Trump is poison for our country. It’s their cowardly opportunism that handed their party, and maybe our democracy, to a disordered, morally bankrupt cult leader. Cult leaders historically have bad endings to their reign. Trump’s inevitable fall from significance and power is taking too long. The wheels of justice needs to speed up America’s rescue.

Definition of a cult: “a cult is a group or movement held together by a shared commitment to a charismatic leader or ideology. It has a belief system that has the answers to all of life’s questions and offers a special solution to be gained only by following the leader’s rules.” ( Tennessean, 2016).

Information control is the primary strategy used by the Trump cult to maintain control over and loyalty from his followers. Characteristics of the system are:

  • The practice of deception (by deliberately withholding or distorting information and lying).
  • You are minimizing or discouraging access to non-cult sources of information (TV, internet, former members, and so on).
  • Making extensive use of cult generated information and propaganda (YouTube, newsletters, movies, and other media).
  • Repeating lies and scripts over and over again for brainwashing
  • Calling facts lies and lies facts

The war on disinformation must be won to bring down the cult of Trumpism. Additionally, the never-Trump members of Congress must break from the Republican Party of Trump and split to form an opposition conservative party to contrast the stark contrast between conservatism and Trumpism.
