It turns out The Life and Times of Rikki Lee Travolta has been getting a lot of traffic on the February 25, 2021 article Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson is an Idiot. Hundreds of curious visitors each day are reading the article, thanks to popularity on search engines for the subject “Ron Johnson idiot”. Apparently, the belief that Ron Johnson is a total and complete idiot is popular
While I encourage you to read the full article. I’ll give you an idea of its tone. In February Senator Johnson started pushing the lie that the Trump-supporting domestic terrorists who staged an insurrection on January 6, 2021 to try stop Joe Biden from being confirmed as President of the United State were actual Biden supporters.
Yes, Johnson in an act showing off his less than average intelligence, suggested Biden supporters were protesting Biden’s lawful election and violently breached the Capitol to try to stop him from being confirmed as President. You can see where the term “idiot” is a very appropriate for Johnson.
For being a party that lies all the time, Republicans sure are pretty bad at lying. They don’t even try to make sense anymore. Take The Big Lie for instance.
President Biden won the popular vote by over 7 million votes. President Biden easily won the electoral college vote as well, 306 to 232. Trump’s own Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council declared the 2020 election to be “the most secure in American history.” Trump’s biggest “Yes Man” Attorney General Bill Barr issued his own statement that there was no evidence of any fraud.
Votes have been recounted numerous times – by hand. Over 60 lawsuits by Trump trying to challenge the validity of the election were dismissed for lack of any evidence. Even the Supreme Court, itself littered with Trump appointees, refused to hear the case because there was no evidence of any kind to support Trump’s baseless accusations. Yet, Trump continues to double down on his lie that he won the election. He remains committed to his Big Lie.
The Big Lie is a term used for the action of telling a lie so unbelievable that you could convince people no sane person would make something like that up. Trump’s claims of winning the election is just the beginning of The Big Lie. Now people like Johnson, Rep. Elise Stefanik, and Rep. Kevin McCarthy are making the even Bigger Lie.
The Bigger Lie is that the January 6 violent insurrection never happened. Various Trump stooges have come out saying the violent domestic terrorists who committed murder while storming the Capitol behaved like normal “tourists.” Trump himself literally says his supporter were hugging and kissing the police. This is in stark contrast to the reality of the bloody attack on democracy we all witnessed.
On the date of attack on the Capitol McCarthy called Trump while he and the other Congresspeople were hiding from the angry mob trying to kill them. He begged Trump to call off his minions. Famously Trump refused, telling McCarthy that those assaulting the Capitol must be “more upset about the election than you are”.
Yet now McCarthy is the vocal leader of the “insurrection didn’t happen” movement – The Bigger Lie. And as an advocate for fantasy stories drummed up by an orange make-up wearing baby, McCarthy argues that the insurrection shouldn’t even be investigated by Congress.
This is a scary time in our nation’s history. Never before has there been a Congress so infected with liars like McCarthy, Sen. Mitch McConnell, and Rep. Matt Gaetz. Left to their own devices, these human stains would have history rewritten with Trump winning the 2020 election and his January 6 attempted coup never happened. They are not confused. They are liars. They know they are lying.
In 1861, 11 senators and 3 representatives were expelled from Congress for supporting the confederate insurrection and refusing to recognize Abraham Lincoln’s electoral win. We should take a lesson from history and expel any representatives or senators that parrot Trump’s Big Lie that he won the election or the Trump Bigger Lie that the insurrection never happened.
It’s our government. We elect these officials. They are elected to act in our best interest, and right now people like Johnson and McCarthy aren’t acting in the best interest of the country. Sen. Ted Cruz is literally recirculating Russian propaganda insulting the U.S. military.
It’s time to remove these deviants from office. Corrupt Republicans are trying to impose new voting laws meant to affect people of color who traditionally vote Democrat. They want to make it more and more difficult for people of color to vote. But thanks to leaders like Stacy Abrams in Georgia, we know we can win if we turn out. If we show up in the 2022 elections like we did getting Trump out of the White House in 2020, we can make sweeping changes for the benefit of our country and make our once great nation proud again.
Peace. Love. Trust.
