In an environment that screams the need to say, “I’m sorry, sir, but this is an Arby’s”–and you may actually be right about that–Donald Trump addresses the scores of accused domestic terrorists who attacked Congress in January 2021 in an attempt to subvert the Constitution, telling them that everything is so unprecedented and everyone who loves Trump is so victimized. “It’s the weaponization of our Department of Justice and we can’t let this happen in our country because our country is going, not socialist,” accordion pantomime Trump declares in a very Cameo-esque video. “They’ve skipped over that. They skipped over socialism. Our country is going communist. This is what happens and we can’t let it happen. We have to stop it. So I want to thank everybody for working so hard. I know how hard you’re working to get justice for people that are imprisoned right now and people that are being tormented. Can’t let it happen. We’re going to stop it and we’re going to win. Thank you all very much.”
So again: Who the fuck is this “they” he mentions? Who, specifically “skipped socialism”? And who, specifically, made such a momentous decision? (It seems like a big step. Like skipping a grade in elementary school.). And JFC, Trump, the US ran both Gitmo and Abu Ghraib, far worse than the admittedly poor conditions of the DC jail.
