    Republicans double down on violence as the solution

    From a recent speech by soon to be indicted Rep Matt Gaetz:

    "The internet's hall monitors out in Silicon Valley, they think they can suppress us, discourage us. Maybe if you're just a little less patriotic. Maybe if you just conform to their way of thinking a little more you'll be allowed to participate in the digital world," he said. "Well you know what, Silicon Valley can't cancel this movement or this rally or this congressman. We have a Second Amendment in this country, and I think we have an obligation to use it."

    These ugly unamerican turds just keep getting uglier every day. If the decent republicans (surely there are more than just Liz Cheney and Paul Ryan) arenít going to stand up to this kind of BS they are just as shameful as Gaetz.

    Are you talking about the Silicon Valley folks trying to stay one step ahead of the outrage crowd or the politicians brave enough to condemn it? I will say the whole Second Amendment part of the quote was un-necessary but the overall message seemed to be timely.

    Any politician who suggests the second amendment as a solution to a nonviolent problem has lost any legitimacy regarding whatever message they were trying to impart. Especially if they are a politician from the party that recently used violence to attempt to overturn undesired election results.

    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Given past history, Iím assuming the turds are being flung at the general run of Republicans for not being as vocally outraged as they should be. Sort of like people condemning Democrats for failing to condemn the antisemitic ramblings within their camp. Itís an old trope. Demand the other guys call out the sinners in their camp. If they do, it keeps the sin in the public eye. If they donít, you can call them complicit.

    Of course heís not going to go all second amendment on anyone. Just like Donald trump wasnít going to personally storm the halls of Congress to overturn the election. Itís much easier, and personally safer, to encourage others to do it. Thatís the unamerican Republican way.

    Maybe they could just help set up funds and contribute their own money to cover bail and legal fees for whatever violence and mahem they might inspire. Democrats seem to approve of that.

    Everyone should be able to defend themselves in court. Even the traitors from January sixth serve that. Since Trump encouraged them to do what they did if he were honorable heíd offer to pay their defense instead of lining his bank account with donations raised off their backs.

    Democrats would also approve of republicans setting up their own tech companies where they can share all the lies they feel like sharing.

    I think they should have died as they breached the building, but that's just me.
