We don’t negotiate with terrorists. No way, no how, ever. So why then would we start now? The answer to that question is — we wouldn’t. But somebody needs to tell some media pundits who stubbornly continue to whine that prosecuting Donald Trump might ignite his base.
One person who said this is Lindsey Granger. Granger made her remarks on The View, where she is a frequent guest co-host. Granger at first praised the committee saying the hearings “brought to light exactly what happened.” But then Granger said she feels a criminal prosecution of Trump is: “looming.” And she said if Trump is charged, the committee would have “ignited his base to the point of no return.”
Honestly? Such talk infuriates me. We do not negotiate with ANY terrorists — not Al-Qaeda, not Isis — or Maga.
Just because Maga is home-grown does not make them any less a terrorist group. And not going forward because we fear hurting their little fee-fees is not and should never be a correct course of action.
Luckily the other View hosts disagreed. But this type of talk is disturbing on so many levels. What kind of country would we be if we weighed options based on the emotions of the enemy? What would we be saying? I say we’d be saying that it’s OK. That we’re afraid of Maga. And then we’d be lost.
Maga does not run our country. The reality is the Maga movement is a small group of savages, of child-like furious creatures who let their ids do the talking for them just as Trump does.
We cannot, and we will not be held hostage by terrorists. We cannot, and we will not bend to their will. We do what’s right — and what is right is a full-scale criminal prosecution of a traitor — Donald Trump. And judging by the reaction, most of the country agrees.
