Aren’t you proud to be an American today (assuming you, dear reader, live in the United States. If not, just roll with it)?
Today’s the day. Today’s the day the Constitution gets used as toilet paper and flushed down the proverbial toilet.
First the Senate refused to hold confirmation for a presidential appointee for the Supreme Court.
Then the people of the United States elected a fascist to the white house.
Now the fascist has been impeached by the House of Representatives and the US Senate is going to rubber stamp the fascist’s desired outcome for the impeachment trial.
The President of the United States of America has been impeached for, among other things, coercing a foreign government into interfering in a Presidential election and the Senate impeachment trial is going to proceed without either side being able to call witnesses.
What do you call a country where the outcome of criminal trials are pre-determined based on political party membership? A dictatorship? A fascist regime? I’m not sure, but you most definitely do not call it a democracy, that is for certain. The rule of law doesn’t apply to you if you are a member of the right political party. The Constitution of the United States of America does not apply to you if you are a member of the right political party.
We should all start rehearsing our nazi salutes, because that’s where we are headed right now. Everyone take your personal copy of the Constitution and throw it in the trash. That is much more polite than what #MidnightMitch McConnell is doing. He took his copy of the Constitution, crumpled it up into a ball, shoved it up his ass, covered it with shit, and then flushed it down the toilet.
God Bless America, let fascism reign.
