We now can truly see just how the Republicans of today honor our forefathers' wishes to uphold a democratic republic society for the future citizens of America.

The protest that turned into riots, vandalism and looting is just what a TV character would like to happen in order to stay in the dictator type of office.

We can see for sure that the American Republicans have stooped as low as they can go in order to destroy our democracy.

Unpatriotic stupidity at its best.

Anybody who's paid attention to the Banana Republican fearless leader.

Thomas Carpenter

could see this coming.

It's not all Republicans - it's the Trumpsters and those who use Trumpism for their own cynical purposes. It's those who are dupes to the delusions of this demented demagogue. It's those who are content to sit quietly by as our democracy is torn apart because "I like his policies." It's those who think they can ride the tailcoats of this pig of a man and not get dirty. It's the cowards who are afraid that he'll incite the mob against them in the next primary election. It's those who rush to defend his every deceit, every insult, every threat, every slander, every lie, and every incitement. It's those who would put a Judas before their god and call it righteousness. And it's those who would put a cult of personality above the Constitution and call it patriotism.

Thank God it's almost over. As we emerge from this "American carnage", we need to reach out to those Republicans who saw what we saw four years ago, and knew what we knew. And those who didn't but realized their mistake and tried to correct it in 2020. And those who this week, or next, at long last, see the fraud for what he is, see the cowards, the enablers, and the delusional devotees for what they are, and see the damage that they have together wrought upon the soul of our nation.

It's up to us, and them, to restore our republic.

Again I ask you to show us where Trump called for a riot:

https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/donald-trump-speech-save-america-rally-transcript-january-6

This is the third time I posted the transcript link and still NO ONE can find it!

Carlos Ponce

No one can find any? Must not be there.

Doyle Neuwiller

Really, Ponce? No one can find any, so there must not be any? REALLY???? And yet you KNOW there was election fraud? Talk about the HEIGHT of hypocrisy. "... none are so blind..." At least we agree on ONE thing.

Carlos Ponce

REALLY! Then show us Doyle Neuwiller! The transcript is there, now show us!

George Laiacona

Carlos your Fox Untruth News station or any other Republican media will not publish the truth therefore you will not see it. Foreign countries have expressed their concerns over what American democracy means today. Emma Riverola said it best “I s this just a final burst of pus? Or has the infection spread, now threatening to cause sepis of the entire system?.

Bailey Jones

And again Carlos, I ask you to have the decency to remove yourself from this forum. The incitement isn't just the speech - it's months of lies about fake claims of massive voter fraud, lies about a stolen election, lies about a left-wing coup. And you, through your endless defense of this BS and the criminal behind it, are equally culpable.

I think it's sad that someone who has spent his life as an educator has chosen to spend his retirement spreading falsehoods and delusion in an attempt to subvert the will of the American people. It's shameful.

Carlos Ponce

I disagree with what you post so remove yourself from the forums is the ranting of fascism.

Carlos Ponce

It's inevitable that Liberal group think leads to fascism

Dan Freeman

We need to shun that man and his handful of destructive compatriots. Just stop responding to the three or four Russian dupes.

Carlos Ponce

Die Gedanken sind frei.

George Laiacona

You must have been waiting the wrong TV real news station

Jim Forsythe

Bailey, you are right that It's up to us, and them, to restore our republic.

Thomas Carpenter

Wow, slap slap slap!

Carlos Ponce

Thomas Carpenter got slapped? That was not nice. Question is: Did you deserve it?

Thomas Carpenter

You are now an object of ridicule, derision and contempt, Mr. Ponce ... right where you belong. Your continued support of the fascist, seditious, traitor aligns you with our pathetic Congressman Weber and the terrorists who mobbed the Capitol. Weber needs to resign.

Carlos Ponce

Thank you Thomas Carpenter! I love you too![love]

Ted Gillis

I hate to appear like I'm piling on, but yeah I think you owe us all an apologize Carlos. Your comments in the past few weeks about telling us to wait and see, and that the truth was coming, and a big reveal of some type was on the way. Well if this was it, then yes, you are just as culpable as the insurgents at the capital. If you had prior knowledge of this and didn't share it, then shame on you.

And your attempt to throw the blame on this by blaming antifa is laughable, as your only "proof" is that Trump supporters are all too old and feeble to climb the steps of the capital without having to stop for oxygen.

Carlos Ponce

Yes, you are bullying me.

Jeff Patterson

I believe the word you are looking for he is “challenging” you.....

Carlos Ponce

No, bullying is the word, not dissimilar to schoolyard bulling.

George Laiacona

We can only hope that Trump’s zealous followers are only a temporary malfunction to our democracy.

Carlos Ponce

Not surprising that FAKE news is all you will listen to.

Jim Forsythe
