House Republicans are completely melting down
Centuries from now, the reading of history will likely look something like this Once upon a time, there lived America. And America was represented by one party — the Democratic party. This party believed in healthcare for all, the right to love whom one wants, free and fair elections, clean energy and air, assisting our friends like Ukraine in war, allowing books to exist, and the rights of women to make their own decisions about their bodies.
Once upon a time, there had been another party. But alas, they disintegrated, designed to merely be a dusty footnote in history. This party was originally called the republican party. But they got swallowed up in conspiracies, election denial, hate, and fascism. And people stopped electing them.
They did incredibly stupid things such as over the weekend of MARCH 12. That was the weekend when Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona announced he and other republicans are thinking of making criminal referrals of members of the January sixth committee.
The January sixth committee was made up of both Democrats and Republicans and sought to get to the bottom of the January six insurrection. It appears that infuriated many republicans who seemed to be on the side of the insurrectionists.
They praised them. They made plans to visit them in jail. Their leader cut a song with them. And now there was talk some of the republicans wanted to prosecute the ones who stopped them.
“Heads have to roll,” was what Gosar said to the Gateway pundit. He said that what the Jan 6 committee did was “lawless.” Gosar also remarked that some in the military might have to be prosecuted as well. On Twitter, the mood was pure shock. “They want to prosecute Liz Cheney?” Twitter asked.
Indeed, it seemed something out of a horror novel. One of the parties America had depended on for so long — had truly lost it. They abandoned their loyalty to the Constitution and to America and now were republicans in name only. In name only.
For their loyalties now stood with a different group than America. Their hearts and minds sympathized with a force of evil rather than good. And that force was insurrection. Republicans had cast aside good in favor of evil and could no more be called a political party.
