Madness runs wild in the Republican Party.
While one might have expected that the orgiastic climax of psychotic energy that culminated in the mob invasion of Capitol Hill and the expulsion of the trickster demon responsible would prove to be a cathartic moment, the events of the past few weeks show that it was actually an accelerant.
Pedophile-obsessed harpies harass their Democratic colleagues in the halls of Congress and publicly bully school shooting survivors. Elected officials throw tantrums as they attempt to bring deadly weapons onto the floor of Congress. The GOP’s leader prostrates himself at the feet of the exiled cult leader while his caucus tears itself apart over accusations of disloyalty.
The consuming delusions aren’t just relegated to the House. Republican Senators are finding themselves engaged in multi-day feuds with Jewish comedians and, in the case of Marco Rubio, are beginning to lazily quote a different kind of scripture — the Book of Trump.
Regurgitating a string of trite crank talking points, the Florida Senator bitterly moaned that “truth” is decided by a (((small group))) and complained about President Biden’s use of executive orders despite having vocally and materially supported Donald Trump for four straight years.
Always a verminous and unabashedly craven hypocrite, Rubio whined that it wasn’t “healthy” or “sustainable” despite having said nothing as Trump spent his entire presidency rewriting reality around him and enticing the entire Republican Party base to fully embrace the sycophantic extremism that they’ve been cultivating for decades.
A “small group in the media, tech, and government?” Just go ahead and say Democratic pedophile cabal, you coward. We all know what you’re alluding to, and it’s absolutely appalling — not to mention drenched in anti-Semitism.
It’s clear that President Biden’s desire to unite the nation and seek bipartisan compromise across the aisle is going to quickly run into a brick wall of weapons-grade crazy. When members of both Houses of Congress are openly endorsing not just these kinds of irrational and inherently fascistic ideas but also the psychotic fantasies of depraved, bloodthirsty freaks, there reaches a point where you simply have to throw up your hands and move on without them.
Senator Rubio’s latest tweet is just more proof that the entire Republican Party from top to bottom is deep in the throes of Trumpian mania and show no sign of emerging any time soon.
“conspiracy theories” isn’t quite right
calling something a theory suggests it might be true
we’re talking about the sick delusions of psychologically-disturbed people
