    Robert Reich suggests that "When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." This may be something like the French Revolution's Committee of Public Safety.
    New York Times contributor Wajahat Ali says this: “You can’t heal or reform the GOP who are now an extremist party. They have to be broken, burned down and rebuilt. When Biden is in power treat them like the active threats to democracy they are."

    "American political strategist" Rick Wilson has a recommendation that reveals either his ignorance or malevolence. Wilson claims, "Vichy Republicans who collaborate with Trump may someday face their own épuration sauvage." This savage purge involved arrests, beatings, interrogation with torture, and summary executions.

    Of course, the grand prize would be the arrest and imprisonment of Donald Trump.”

    The American political left is out for revenge. Winning an election is not enough for them. They hate middle America so much that they want to utterly eradicate and destroy all traces of it in the hope that economic populism and nationalism never threaten their one world order again.

    The blood lust for revenge and retribution is strong on the progressive left. Just recently an elected DNC person from California suggested re education camps for all Trump voters.

    I don't like Reich. His idea is toxic.

    I agree with Wilson, and the AT author reveals "either his ignorance or malevolence" in calling Wilson's words a "recommendation." What Wilson said is foreshadowing. It's not a recommendation. And the author's pedantic historical brilliance is both hard to stomach, and also indicative of something gone right over his head.

    I'm actually impressed that I agree with one paragraph from American Thinker. This is a first. (It's a trash rag, IMO)

    I am as anti-Trump as one can be but the liberals need to stop with this "revenge" nonsense. If Biden is president on 1/20 - just move on and try to unite the country as opposed to further divide. Go after Trump et al and then in 2024 if the Republicans win back the presidency it will escalate in the opposite direction

    That's your opinion. Way too biased for my taste.

    This narrative that punishing a criminal is "revenge" is nonsense made up by Trump's propagandists. Unless you consider putting Al Capone in jail "revenge" for failing to pay his taxes, or that the execution of Timothy McVeigh was "revenge" for the Oklahoma city bombing.

    Consistency would be appreciated.

    It's hard to believe but there are so called Americans who want to put all Trump supporters in some sort of confinement and re-educate them by force. This is how insane the left has become,THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS!!!!!

    Mixh harder for the Right to go after Biden since the rank in file in DC aren’t Right anymore. The MSM certainly Isn’t going to get him. Big tech isn’t going to get him. If anyone wanted to get him, Hunter would be front page news 24/7.

    But... wait a minute. The right goes after Biden because they disagree with his policies. The left goes after Trump because he's a criminal (also because they disagree with his policies, but that besides the point).

    Are you suggesting that once anybody is elected President they are above the law?

    Please be clear.

    No - I think Trump is the most corrupt president in history and I wish putting him in jail was for the best

    I just believe in the greater good and that going after Trump & his followers will do more harm than good. This country is too divided, we need to find ways to reduce this divide. If Trump is convicted of something, his cult will be even more emboldened that he is being treated unfairly.

    So you believe that, for the greater good, Presidents should be above the law from now on. What is the difference between letting a President (whatever his/her name) go free after committing whatever crimes he wants, and supporting him even if he stood in the middle of 5th Avenue and killed somebody? To you is it just the name?

    Or do you think that this is the end of it? That we let Trump go free and we will never in history have a corrupt President ever again who will take advantage of the precedent? Didn't work with Nixon....

    Let us know when he willfully destroys subpoenaed evidence and gets away with it.

    No - but our country is in a bad place right now. On a personal level I would love to see Trump in jail for the rest of his life.
