Well, he did it

13 Jan

The current president of the US just made history – he’s been impeached by the House of Representatives for a historic second time. Of course, that ass-kisser in charge of the Senate refuses to recall the senators to do their duty and remove the current president, but that’s surely no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.

At this moment, CNN is trying to tell us Republicans are simply misguided and the 10 who voted to impeach the current president are “brave” and have made “the difficult political decision” to do the Right Thing.

I’m furious! To call those assholes “brave” for doing the job they were elected to do after the insurrection at the Capitol last week is so far beyond the pale I can hardly keep from screaming.

In case you don’t know, here’s the oath of office US Representatives take –

“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

197 Representatives voted *against* impeaching the man who set a mob on them.

197 Representatives (all Republicans, in case anyone is confused about who is staging a coup) are totally okay with the current president directly causing the death of 5 people. After the events of last Wednesday, another 2 or 3 (the number keeps rising, so these may not be accurate totals today) have committed suicide over the trauma.

197 Representatives are totally okay with the fact the current president set a violent mob on his own Vice President. Think about that. He incited a mob to try to kill his own Vice President. On national TV. Live. We all saw it. We all heard it. And yet 197 Representatives did not vote to convict.

Yes, I understand we need “unity” and “peace,” but that can only happen when the current president admits to his cult that the election was won, legally, unequivocally and without fraud by Joe Biden and that he has been lying to them for well over four years. Until his followers admit they were wrong and pay for their crimes (yes, they were crimes) there will be no peace and no unity.

Remember when they told all those who were distraught over Hillary Clinton’s loss, “fuck your feelings?” Remember how they gloated and bragged that “now those [insert group of people to hate] will finally get what’s coming to them!”

Yeah. I have no sympathy for insurrectionists. I have no sympathy for the crybabies complaining they were maced, or shoved, or put on a no-fly list, or fired from their jobs because those are the very same people who were cheering the macing, physical attacks and shootings of people of color. They staged a failed coup. It’s time for them to go to jail, do their time and then STFU while the grown-ups clean up the mess they left behind.

Do your duty. Stop talking about “unity” until those fuckers have been arrested, tried and locked away. Including the republican representatives in our government who actively fomented a failed coup. Them, most of all.

    Sigh…they’re more worried about upsetting Chester Cheeto’s zealots than upholding the law. It’s ridiculous. Those same people supposedly cherish the constitution and criticized violence last year, but I guess things are different when people are attacking the very institution of the country they claim to love all to keep an idiot who gives their hate a voice in power. I don’t understand how people can be so stupid.

      I just keep reminding myself that half of all people are below average…

        That doesn’t make it any easier to take.

        No, it doesn’t, but dwell on it too much and you’ll realize that half the people in this country are hate-filled assholes, and that’s sure to ruin your day…

        It does. I avoid humans as much as I can, especially since I live in Indiana.
