    So many great segments, and it’s nice to here Mr. Wallace’s explanation, we all subscribe to democracy -and an open and honest media ~which is why we have to at least hear the lie -the first time -if only to dissect it. That is why we have free speech -so that lies may be voiced, challenged -and (with logic -and argument) *defeated.* It is better for a lie to be spoken in public that fed in private, because in open debate (free speech) -a foolish idea can be revealed and defeated with reason, before it has a chance to grow bold. This is an elementary, but fundamental concept of democratic debate. If we can’t grasp that then we will have nothing but censure left, -and that is a whip for one’s own back. ~Also an elementary concept.

    _’Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America’_ by Kathleen Belew (Harvard University Press, 2018)
    The movement “brought together members of the Klan, militias, radical tax resisters, white separatists, neo-Nazis, and proponents of white theologies such as Christian Identity, Odinism, and Dualism” (ix). What was it about the movement that brought these ideologies together?

    The promise of violence — rather, the promise that members would get to inflict violence on other people. Belew writes that as the white power movement matured, it became more violent, and “[as] violence came to the fore of the movement, distinctions among white power factions melted away” (60). Belew calls this process “violent community formation” (34). Yet as a social movement, Belew makes a distinction between the white power movement’s “revolutionary violence” and the Ku Klux Klan’s “vigilante violence.”

    Vigilante violence “served to constitute, shore up, and enforce systemic power” (106). Given that the U.S. government has a long history of “defending vigilante violence by refusing to enforce the law” (99), law enforcement inaction and vigilante violence may be understood together as a case of one hand washing the other. Revolutionary violence, however, sought to overthrow the state. It is the white power movement’s goal of overthrowing the federal government that sets it apart in the history of white supremacy in the U.S.

    “Call this civic barbarism. Instead of promoting the values of responsible citizenship, Trump, Republican leadership, and their media enablers have elevated and blessed the very worst among us. They are making many Americans less suited for self-government and more dangerous to their neighbors. And they are doing so for the reason some of the Founders most feared: To lead the mob against true democracy.”
    ~ Michael Gerson, from _’Trumpism is American Fascism’_
    (NOTE: Gerson is a staunch life-long conservative, who served as former President George W. Bush’s chief speech writer.)

    “Until Republicans return to reality and become responsible, they should not be trusted with power again.”
    That’s been obvious for some time, the same warning others like me have been advocating, but it’s good that Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is amplifying that message. More Americans need to understand this.

    The constant lies, denials, deceits, delusions, gaslighting, dog-whistles, crackpot conspiracy theories, projectionism, Whataboutism, bogus victimhood, and hypocrisy of Republicans is disgusting and alarming. The Republican cult has poisoned itself with its own propaganda, choosing to live in a dystopian fascist Orwellian fantasy world. The Republican cult has been radicalized to such extent that it poses a clear and present danger to our society, our democracy, our country, and the world.

    Republicans have been programmed into a mindless fascist partisan cult that is unhinged, delusional and evil. They’re essentially a domestic terrorist group, and we should be targeting the leaders of that group with the same vigor and determination we would a foreign terrorist group attacking our country. Don’t know of a time since the Civil War when our nation has been at greater peril, and we need to recognize that, acknowledge it, and act upon it accordingly.

    “What happened on January 6 is the very definition of sedition.” ~ Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson
    Why has Traitor Trump not been charged yet by the DOJ? That’s what a lot of people are wondering! Not just prosecution of Trump, but all his accomplices, too! Obstruction charges outlined in the Mueller Report, the Ukraine extortion racket, inciting an insurrection, sedition, and federal election interference. The evidence is all in plain sight, where are the indictments, the arrests? Our democracy hangs in the balance; this is no time to play nice, there is no time to waste! The DOJ shouldn’t be worried about appearances, either, because it’s a matter of impartially enforcing the law and not setting bad precedent that encourages future lawlessness and authoritarianism by the Executive Branch. And because justice matters.

    I don’t understand how Chris continues to work at Fox when colleagues like the vile Tucker Carlson and others continue to promote the big lie(s) through deliberate misinformation and vitriol. I note many Fox viewers view him as leftist. He is the one voice of reason in that entire toxic empire.

    I feel for Chris Wallace. He’s probably the last remaining actual journalist at fox news. And he probably hates being associated with them. But if he leaves, there will be no one left to tell the truth.

    I feel strongly that more of the dialogue must point to WHO stokes the anti-democratic agenda with money. There are corporatists behind this, with the oil companies, the pharmaceuticals, and the gun manufacturers at the top of the donors list. MAGA, QAnon – all the Klan variants organized enough to storm the Capitol – none would be able to pull off this shit and keep media attention if not for those donors. Libertarian lunatics driven to dismantle government, eliminate regulation, and minimize taxes on the wealthiest, and cynical enough to support white supremacists as agents for their agenda. That’s where our war begins and ends – and why, as I see it, we HAVE to change the basis of our voting system to a pure democracy, which would empower the nationwide majority over a wealthy faction who continues controlling the electorate with massive, massive bucks thanks to the way it’s set up right now.

    Why are so many afraid to use terrorist attack over insurrection? Stop coddling the incestuous corn silk smokers.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    If you believe SEAL Rob O’Neal killed Bin Laden hiding behind three wives on the third floor of a gated residence in Pakistan, then I have a bridge in Maine to sell you.
