Use the power the Constitution gives you

For those who think people telling you the sky (may soon) be falling, it isn’t just political blather.

Listen to conspiracy theorist and Trump supporter Jack Prosobiec at CPAC the other day:

“Welcome to the end of democracy. We are here to overthrow it completely. We didn’t get all the way there on January 6, but we will endeavor to get rid of it and replace it with this right here. After we burn that swamp to the ground, we will establish the new American republic on its ashes and our first order of business will be righteous retribution for those who betrayed America.”

Listen to Trump supporter and former White House Counselor Steve Bannon as Prosobiece delivered those remarks:

“All right! Amen!”

Listen to their leader, Donald J. Trump, who called his political opponents:

“Sickos…evil..Stalinist…executioners thugs and tyrants…fascists…scoundrels and rogues.”

Trump told his supporters not to accept an electoral defeat, claiming, without evidence, that any Trump loss would be illegitimate. This, before even one general election vote is cast. And if you think he too is just tossing out blater, think back to Jan, 6, 2020. He also said:

“Nov. 5 (Election Day) will be our new Liberation Day … but for liars and cheaters and fraudsters and censors and imposters who have commandeered our government, it will be their Judgement Day.”
