In a piece he wrote for the far-left publication American Prospect, columnist Harold Meyerson made the suggestion that all Republicans need to be put on a domestic terrorism watch list because some of them have said mean things about Democrats.
Meyerson is particularly upset at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for allegedly liking a tweet “that called for shooting Nancy Pelosi and executing FBI agents for their ‘deep state’ persecutions of Donald Trump.”
This writer is unsure when or if this actually happened, but Meyerson says it did and now he wants the entire Republican Party to be punished for it. Meyerson also wants Republicans to be punished for the “insurrection” that occurred at the Capitol on Jan. 6, which he says is all Trump’s fault.
Demonstrating the type of elitist fragility that we have all become accustomed to, Meyerson believes this incident to be one of the worst things ever to happen in our country because it made a few politicians get scared, and they are not used to having their feathers ruffled.
Burning down AutoZone and looting Target pales in comparison to the Capitol “siege” because there were no politicians anywhere near those businesses. Entering a federal building unannounced, though, is basically the apocalypse, according to Meyerson.
That precious congressional privilege, which demands that no member of Congress ever have to be inconvenienced, let alone confronted by voters, was violated on Jan. 6, and now the elites want all Republicans to pay dearly.
Expressing conservative viewpoints is a form of sedition, according to the left
Meyerson is throwing a temper tantrum over the “overwhelming refusal” of Republicans in Congress to hold Trump accountable for the “insurrection.” Members like Arizona’s Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs who “encouraged” the incident are even more offensive, he says.
“Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution says that no government official can hold office ‘who, having previously taken an oath … to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,’” Meyerson writes, suddenly championing the Constitution because he believes it says something that supports his viewpoint.
“That surely applies to Trump, but it increasingly appears that it should apply to most Republican members of Congress as well,” Meyerson adds, suggesting that all of them are domestic terrorists.
The Washington Post published a similar hit piece entitled, “What the 1798 Sedition Act got right – and what it means today” that presents a similar narrative. Spreading “misinformation” online – meaning a Trump supporter expressing his or her views – is dangerous and does not align with democracy.
“The column said that the danger of ‘misinformation’ meant that free speech was not enough to sort out fact from fiction, and that opponents of the Sedition Act ‘were wrong to conclude that the truth would necessarily prevail in an open exchange of information,’” writes Joel B. Pollak for Breitbart News.
Several Breitbart commenters were quick to point out that Rep. Greene did nothing wrong. To claim otherwise, and to insinuate that she and others like her are domestic terrorists, is some of the worst kind of gaslighting, and something we have all come to expect from the Democrat Party.
“If you don’t agree, then you don’t belong in the Republican Party,” one commenter wrote.
“The Founding Fathers did nothing wrong. Their statues and those of Lincoln and Christopher Columbus and General Robert E. Lee must be put back. If you don’t like our statues then you’re in the wrong country. Arrest, denaturalization, and deportation.”
