Totes legit

Teaching about systemic racism is not permissible. Trying to overthrow the government on the other hand is fine.

The Republican Party on Friday censured U.S. Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for joining Congress’ probe of then-President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, calling the Jan. 6 Capitol attack “legitimate political discourse.”

Ah yes, legitimate political discourse, with sticks and clubs and guns to back it up.

It’s too obvious to say but I’ll say it anyway: imagine the Republican Party saying that about a BLM protest at the Capitol that was half as violent as the January 6th one. It is to laugh.

The Republican National Committee on Friday passed a resolution rebuking Cheney and Kinzinger for their involvement on the Jan. 6 select committee, accusing them of “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”

The resolution passed on a voice vote as 168 members of the RNC gathered for their winter meeting in Salt Lake City. The yes votes were overwhelming, with a handful of nays, according to reporters at the meeting.

So they’re basically announcing they’re the pro-coup party.
