A truly glorious rant to enjoy over your morning coffee!

And now your media, your politicians, your talking heads, your reporters have the unmitigated fucking gall to breathe A GODDAMNED WORD about UNITY?

Let me tell you all something: fuck unity on your terms. Fuck your empty gestures. Fuck your continued obstruction, corruption, racism, and nihilism. I am done. I am fucking done. I can’t believe YOUR senate MINORITY LEADER (lmao, btw) thinks he can straight up filibuster the rules that will govern the new senate. I can’t believe, after he rushed a supreme court nomination IN A FUCKING WEEK, he is now thwarting the will of the voters of not only Georgia, but every democrat who voted in every senate election accross the country. In the words of the great Greta Thunberg “HOW DARE YOU?”

Unless and until you convict and bar Trump from ever holding office again, expel the seditionists from your ranks, and start cooperating in government for the good of the country, not for the good of your fucking caucus, not for the good of the “GOP” (that needs to be retired, btw), not for the good of Donald J. Trump, but for the good of the country, there will be no unity. Accountability, self reflection, and true remorse precede unity. Without it, its not unity, it is once again the republicans pursuing absolute power as a ends itself. And THAT you fucking assholes, is what lead to the rise of the neo-fascist monster in your ranks that you now cannot control.

So fuck your version of unity. Because it leads to fascism. And we aren’t doing performative unity as appeasement to you traitorous assholes. WE WON THIS ELECTION. FUCKING CRY ABOUT IT

Whining about 'as a Republican' "I want uNiTy" on my terms only.

The RW media will be using that these next weeks and months....

5. I read that last night and wished our congress critters could feel the same rage.

But I don't think they can. The Republicans have no problem sharing a drink with you and hugging you and then running a blade up you and not feel bad at all.

7. To them unity means we have to do what they say. The winners have to bow to the losers.

11. Biden should keep saying unity while plowing ahead on everything....

Its all about messaging. President Biden should simply keep saying unity, unity, unity. Its a nice message.

Meanwhile he should just go full speed ahead with executive orders, Dems should investigate everything Trump did, we should continue to organize for 2022 and 2024, keep going after Trump criminally, financially, and civilly.

Just keep saying unity as our marketing message while really blasting ahead with everything we want done. My hunch is that will be a winning strategy going into the next election cycle.

You seem to maybe be on the fence.

Such a wonderfully refreshing perspective to start this beautiful day with.

16. Yep. So true.

Justice first. Those responsible for the most reprehensible affront to our government EVER must pay the price for their actions. They style themselves as the party of "personal responsibility" don't they? And yes, the worst affront EVER! The Confederates wanted to leave, not OVERTHROW the US government. The two are not comparable. The Jan 6 morons were vastly worse.

Then unity, based on reality. They want to go back to crazy town? Sorry, no unity. They want to use stupid arguments even a 5 year old would instantly see as goddamn lies? Sorry, no unity. If they want to argue policy based on reality? I'm with them. Argue away. It will be like the old days. If they want to use bumper sticker bullshit as their arguments. Nope. No unity.

Ball is in their court, not ours. They're the ones who started, abetted and made half ass apologies for the REVOLT. They're the ones who need to move towards us. We sure as shit ain't moving towards them.
