Leftists, progressives, fawning over Lynn Cheney is ridiculous and disgusting.

    Is Trump gone? I am getting the impression he is still behind the scenes using his base as a weapon to drive Republicans in Congress to support his lies, whims and revenge tactics.

    I expect he is the main driver of the efforts to remove Liz from leadership roles. His fawning obsequious base is poised to accept or reject whomever Trump dictates is worthy or not.

    It doesn't seem like that is something that has happened before in American politics but I am sure a Trump supporter can pull a false equivelency out of their hat to normalize it.

    It has everything to do with Trump.

    Because you put all your hopes in him and despite his defeat, any Republican elected official who still dares to criticize him is flayed alive in the public square.

    Trump has established a new definition of conservatism from which no one is allowed to escape on pain of insults on social networks and vicious attacks from his syncophants.

    Donald Trump has installed a new mccarthyism and I hope it lasts as long as possible.

    Sure he's behind the scenes. And I mean "gone" in a relative sense.

    Yes, I agree he's driving Cheney's removal, but McConnell is a different animal. Kevin McCarthy will not become Speaker of the House, and McConnell is done with the Big Lie. Trump has some power over some people and that is diminishing. Arizona is a laughing stock. Everything Trump touches dies, and all these Republicans will be long dead before Nov '22.

    Trump never did anything illegal. You are blinded by hate.

    Also how is he gone? He just started his own blog.

    Liz Cheney supports Democrats and thus she does not have America's best interests at heart. She also supported impeaching Trump over lies and false accusations the Democrats made up.

    Not everything Trump said was a lie. Almost every politician lies including Biden. Does that bother you?

    Yes that is true and you love to point out the faults of the right.

    I guess you missed January 6, when his loyal followers tried to stage a violent coup.

    everyone who stormed the capital, or fought with police, is indeed a Fascist.

    they tried to overthrow the legal process with a violent coup. That's what Fascists do.

    everyone who supports them, funded them, advocated for them, is also a Fascist.

    brave Republicans who opposed this coup, are good Conservatives.

    Your response has absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote. I don't give a crap about your "cancel culture" myth. Look at the OP. The author is "disgusted" because we judge Liz Chaney's position based on each one of her individual actions. On political matters we judge actions.. not people. And that is completely incomprehensible to the right.

    As I said before, there ARE ideologues on the left too. And that's a bad thing, in my opinion. But even that is better than the cult of personality that the Republican Party has now embraced.

    Here's an open question. What happens to the strategy being employed by congressional Repubs to stand behind the "big lie" if Trump is indicted in GA for his call to Raffensperger? Or if NY state indicts him on fraud and tax evasion charges? Or if the SDNY indicts him for breaking campaign finance law?

    My assumption.........nothing. They still stand behind him. Because what choice do they have? Other than opposing the Dem agenda they have none of their own. The POT is a cult of personality devoid of ideas for improving the lives of average citizens so there is nothing to do but keep following the cult leader.........no matter how corrupt he is.

    Trump, is the GOP's last gasp at big popular support. Their ideas of low taxes, no abortions, gun rights, anti-gay rights, pollute the earth, destroy china & iran, just dont resonate with people anymore.

    despite my family background, I don't speak German. And I often disagreed with Trump myself. So I would hardly label anyone who did as "vermin".

    If you are suggesting that you are one, that is on you and not me.

    All that resonates with me big time. And I know I'm far, far from alone.

    LOL, nice try.

    Only in your extremely distorted perception. Granted the LW media is doing its damnest to push that perception but it’s far from true - as is most of LW publication

    Yes. The same folks that wanted her dad arrested for "war crimes" are now concern-trolls that the GOP is likely going to toss her after she has made it clear she plays for the approval of the Fake News, the Left, anti-Trumpers and the War Mongers.
