For tonight, a clip that shows us what applying Republican logic to the sports world would be like. As we know, they've already applied their unusual "logic" to global warming and viruses, in addition to their presidential election treason!
But wait! There's more! Suppose it was VE Day, May 8, 1945. It's easy to guess what today's republicans would be saying. Would Nazi supporters like Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford and republican $enator Prescott Bush be saying Hitler "won by a lot?" That's highly likely. Going further back in our history, it's easy to see today's Republicans saying "The Confederacy won the Civil War by a lot." In their sick hearts and minds, they've been doing it all along anyway. That's why they're always waving Confederate flags and fighting to preserve their damn statues that celebrate their beloved heritage of slavery.
The future is more concerning. The party that says "Truth isn't truth" now says elections aren't elections. The current attempted coup by Republicans will come back to bite America in the ass if these perps go untried, unconvicted, and unjailed. It'll be worse than the horrible example that was set by not throwing Nixon in a dungeon for the rest of his days. That lack of action led to subsequent crimes by multiple presidents who knew they could "get away with it." Now, we've had a full on coup attempt. Someone smarter and less scattered than Trump will come along in the future and try everything Trump has done again. Trump has provided a roadmap for insurrection. But, it isn't just future coup attempts that face us now. Following Trump's lead, future $enators and Congresspersons will refuse to acknowledge voting results that show they lost and they will try to overthrow the elections they ran in. Local officials will do the same, knowing that, if Trump and his supporters went unpunished, they might as well try it, too. This will go on right down through city council and school board elections to teens running for class president. Someday one of them will bring a gun to school to settle the score. To think otherwise is to be criminally naive or negligent.
To not investigate and prosecute every single one of the current crop of treasonous and seditious political and media Republikook malcontents is more than just kicking the can down the road. It is inviting the end of the American experiment in democracy in the very next election cycle and beyond. To allow these vermin a free pass would be the most deadly fail of all.
