Like overturning the Constitution?
The January 6 (2021) insurrection wasn’t unique?
Election untruther Janel Brandtjen, exiled from the Republican Assembly Caucus as Wisconsin’s Marjorie Taylor Green, is running for the state senate seat vacated by the retirement of the honorable Alberta Darling in Milwaukee’s country club suburbs.
Cannot improve on Facebooker Karen Mayhew who posted, “I swear to God, Republicans in this state must love stepping on rakes. Clown show Janel!”
Brandtjen is one of the few Republicans among the 65 in the Assembly (after the November election) to swallow whole Trump’s stolen election lie. Along with Rep. Tim Ramthun, who racked up an impressive (Snark Alert!) 6 percent in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Brandtjen chaired the Assembly’s election committee! The 6 percent are in thrall to the Insurrectionist-in-Chief who, in just the past week, invited Hitler admirers to his table before advocating tearing up the Constitution. (But but but … Nancy Pelosi tore up his State of the Union speech!)
"A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution." — Donald Trump, a defeated former President.
Who will be Trump’s die hard Baghdad Bob?
The Werkes is sponsoring a World Cup event to determine who will keep defending Dear Leader down to the last days in the bunker. Our Round of 16 includes these Republicans In Trump Only (RITOs) responding to a rare statement of sanity posted on social media:
Donald Trump is such a patriot he directly called for us to break the constitution to reinstall him president. Kinda sounds like every dictator. They have some special reason to change the law to stay in power. Donald Trump is a sad and disturbing man.— Matt Ahmann
Now the RITO blowback:
Enjoy the denials, the what-aboutisms, the reinterpretations, and out-of-ammunition name calling!
Mark Steven Zuelke: “No, YOU are a “sad and disturbing man.”
Josh Aura: “The democrats are domestic enemies and you don’t even bat an eye. You hate trump more than you love the country.”
Joe Scheibinger: “Matt, that didn’t happen. You are a slanderer.”
Jeff Kirschmann: “We are very highly suspicious that President Trump would declare such a thing. The ‘elephant in the room’, is, with plenty of evidence of fraud, and millions of ppl aggrieved, why is there no court case yet!?” [BLASKA: 61 court cases aren’t enough?]
Josh Aura: “Notice how he has no issue with the fbi lying to subvert the election and install bjden by telling Twitter to suppress very damaging material against Biden and his bagman son. They literally threw a US ELECTION, and all this beta does is scream ‘but Trump’.” [BLASKA: Despicable, possibly criminally actionable, but no grounds to overturn a Presidential election.]
Diane Kennedy: “What I think he intended to mean is that the apparent fraud that installed the current administration necessitates drastic action to correct. Rather than follow the chain of succession which would lead to another complicit person being installed, we should suspend THAT aspect and do something unique to fix the problem. Resulting in putting him back in the WH.”
Lee Showalter: “He’s not wrong. we should abolish our Republic and the entire government with it.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line and Impertinent Question: Wm. F. Buckley revivified conservatism by calling out the John Birchers, anti-Semites, and other kooks. Can Republicans afford to lose Ramthun/Brandtjen’s 6 percent or will they more than compensate by gaining disaffected Republicans and independents encouraged by the party’s return to sanity? Especially after our under-performance on November 8?
