My dude literally put out a campaign video on Dec 13 portraying himself as supersoldier in combat gear fighting leftists trying to take over the US government and encouraging everyone to join the fight.
If you haven't see Texas Reloaded it's wild. This is our boy being told that though he won re-election, the fight is not over in Georgia. "What are we up against?" he asks.
And he's told by JARVIS-esq mission control: "Far left activists are attempting to gain full and total control of the US government" With the accompanying images:
He's told further "Should these seats be lost ALL will be list"
On that apocalyptic note of the consequences of failure "Your mission will be to rally support across Georgia for these American patriots." Armed and ready I see.
And again mission control emphasizes in no uncertain terms: "They. Must. Win."

Over video of Loeffler firing a shotgun...
"What's the situation on the ground?" Crenshaw asks
"We have two patriots down there," the aide says, "great fighters with a great message. Who do you want to bring?"
"Everyone." Crenshaw says, leaving his civilian clothes behind to go take up this critical mission
Then we cut to Dan "Let's Lower the Temperature" Crenshaw parachuting into Georgia in full tactical gear to campaign against far left activists trying to take over the US government.
But oh noes! As he's in mid-jump mission control tells Crenshaw there's a small problem at the landing site...
ANTIFA! Currently on patrol through rural Georgia hunting for him, as is the standard Antifa M.O.
Mission control recommends shifting his landing site. But Crenshaw aint having it. "Negative, I want to say hello to the greeting party."
Waiting down below we get some witty Antifa henchman banter (I'm not making any of this up)...

Antifa 1: "I don't even know why I'm so angry, do you?"
Antifa 2: "The news told us to be."
Then Crenshaw lands directly on the hood of their car and shows everyone what we do to far left activists trying to take over the US government in a critical moment where if we lose EVERYTHING IS LOST
You might say, wow this is all silly action porn not meant to be taken literally. You might say, it's not like people will be encouraged to literally put on tactical gear and fight the far left activists trying to take over the US government because if they fail all will be lost
So now we return to Crenshaw's thoughts on how we can't ignore recent behavior that led to the attack on the capitol. And ask ourselves who's behavior leading up to the violence in the capitol we ALSO can't ignore.

Ben disagreed with calling Barack Obama a communist, but only because he more precisely identified him as a pure nihilist who wants to destroy America simply for the sake of destroying America.
Ben worked really hard to became the single most influential conservative voice of his generation. And this is a tiny sliver of the aggressively toxic worldview he's been preached all those years.

Ah what a synchronicity. It's straight from a wonderful Father/Son moment that happened yesterday.
Fact 1: Over holidays I started showing the kids clips from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Black Knight first. Then French insults. They thought it was *hilarious.* This alone is thrilling dad+kids moment. They get it.
Fact 2: I was talking to The Boy (age 8) about what happened at the capitol and resuming conversations we've had about how the revolutions I write about moved us from hereditary kings/queens to democracy and elections to pick leaders.

10.41 did ~150,000 in the week after it was released, which I consider the active/ongoing listener base. Those back episodes from earlier in the year are all hovering around 250,000 total.
No idea what's going on with the 470,000 number for 10.39. Reckon that means there were ~200,000 very confused people out there like "what the hell is even happening right now"

Is this a great example of "retweeting comfortable lies" or are we being too fussy and pedantic about the difference between "impeachment" and "impeachment AND conviction" which is a not-very-well drawn distinction in common usage?
Which is to say...consequences #1-3 are true if he's convicted and removed from office. #4 is a possible additional penalty, though not guaranteed. But it's not like it's all just a bunch of made-up bullshit.
In terms of linguistic accuracy, sure it's a problem that people conflate "impeachment" with "impeachment+conviction," but that's a very common problem regarding terminology of a legal process not "this is outright misinformation"

The United States has an active faction of political leaders whose fidelity to democratic elections is 100% contingent on whether they win. This is an intolerable threat that must be squarely faced.
The people who raided the capitol last night ought to be punished. But they are foot soldiers. The real threat to the republic is an axis of political leaders (Trump, Cruz, Hawley etc) and right wing media outlets (Fox, OANN on down the line) who have whipped up the storm.
The thing, for me, that is crucial to understand about this moment in American history is how much it is powered by lying. Non-stop lying. The lying, misinformation, and disinformation is *the* salient point.
