Great article by the Managing Editor of The Federalist, posted one day after the insurrection.…
"The Republican Party of the future cannot — not tacitly, not quietly, not in the slightest — encourage grievance or stoke anger... [nor can it] continue to endorse the view that any election lost to Democrats constitutes the literal end of the country."
"What we saw on Jan. 6, 2021, is not a surprising result when people are falsely told their votes are meaningless because the elections are 'rigged' and democracy in America is a sham."
"if the Republican Party wants to have any hopes of salvaging its image and winning another election, it must move beyond hitching its fortunes to one person, especially if that man is the destabilizing force known as Donald Trump."
"The Republican Party must decide, and decide quickly, whether it has the courage to take up that mantle again, or whether it wants to ride the rusted husk of what’s left of the Trump train straight into oblivion." 🔥

This story is insane.…

American Greatness: "the good man must...become the monster he may need to become in order to slay the monsters"
"Hispanic gangbangers... distinguished themselves on account of their zeal... terroriz[ing] law-abiding blacks who happened to reside within or pass through the Barrio."
It's hard to read this as anything but admiration for white supremacist gangs.

Where did people like Tucker Carlson (and Trump for that matter) get the idea that undocumented immigrants are eager to get mixed up in illegal voting schemes? 1/
This is a population that by and large does everything it can to *avoid* interactions with municipal authorities. Even if they're victims of a crime, or abuse and exploitation at work, many will keep quiet because they're afraid of being deported. 2/
And yet we're asked to believe that they'll risk it all for some "walking around money."

"Here's fifty bucks, now go into this building with a police car parked outside and pretend to be someone else. It'll be fine!" 3/

American Greatness: the pro-Trump insurrection was nothing more than "political dissent"
The author of the piece, Julie Kelly, focuses on Proud Boy Christopher John Worrell.
Worrell, who was photographed discharging pepper spray on Capitol grounds in the direction of a line of police officers, was engaged in "wholly American" activities "well within the protections of the First Amendment," argues Kelly.…

Ron Johnson doubles down with a WSJ op-ed saying the Trump insurrection was nothing to worry about, spends rest of the piece complaining about Antifa and cancel culture
“Only about 800 people illegally entered the Capitol. Still fewer engaged in violent acts.”

A US Senator actually wrote these sentences and saw fit to publish them in the Wall Street Journal.
Johnson is literally minimizing a violent attack on the US Capitol.

“Only about 800... Still fewer...”

Yet he will take great offense when you ascribe to his words their plain meaning.

American Greatness thinks the DOJ is being too hard on an insurrectionist who faces three weapons charges and assault of a federal officer.

It calls the case against him "shockingly thin," despite video evidence of him fighting federal officers with a baton in his hand.
The author claims 18-year-old Bruno Cua's real crime was to "dare to question the legitimacy of the 2020 election," and that "like many teenagers interested in politics, Bruno is a bit of a ... social media loudmouth."
That's one way of putting it.

Cuo called for the "public execution" of members of Congress, and offered tips on what kind of weapons rioters should carry before the January 6th uprising.…
