Kevin D. Williamson, “The Trump Coup Is Still Raging,” New York Times, Sept. 10, 2021
The headline screams out, “The Trump Coup Continues.”
Yes. And Republicans are plotting to successfully carry it out.
What are the Democrats doing to stop it?
Virtually nothing. They haven’t even passed one of the Voting Rights bills.
The Democrats have decided not to prosecute Trump for any of the electoral crimes or other felonies he appears to have committed.
Their approach to countering the American fascist threat by Trump and his acolytes, far from weakening them, has only served to make them stronger.
The Democrats need to rethink their strategy.
Impunity for Trump and his co-conspirators in his attempt to overthrow the 2020 election and the Constitution has only emboldened Republicans, who are contemplating the commission of similar crimes in the future.
If the Democrats continue to grant Trump and his co-conspirators impunity, as they have to date, surely Republicans setting the stage for new electoral crimes will have nothing to fear in the future.
Democrats: Your strategy for saving our democracy, if you have one, is not working.
Look at the facts. Stare at the facts and their implications.
