threats of physical harm

Sleepwalking in the garden of fascism: “Merrily we roll along!”

Too many frowns can change the brightest disposition
As sure as clouds can darken the dawn
Yet every joy in life has been our one ambition.
And that’s how we intend to go on!

Merrily we roll along, my honey and me
Verily there’s no one half as happy as we

Merrily we dance along while facing the sun
Merrily our slogan is: ‘say, don’t we have fun?’
We live in style, with a smile and a song
As we merrily roll along!

Though we often quarrel for it’s human I’m sure
But we find there’s nothing that a kiss cannot cure
We’re for each other, how can we go wrong?
As we merrily roll along!

Everyone seems quite undisturbed by the non-prosecution of politicians in high places who have committed serious and blatant crimes, in broad daylight.

Trump introduced the normalization of the unthinkable, and the normalization of the unforgivable.

The Biden Administration and Attorney General Garland are now introducing the normalization of impunity for politically-motivated crimes at the highest levels.
House Democrats should forget the immense distraction of conducting yet another investigation of the insurrection on January 6.

Instead, they should be holding hearings into why the Biden Administration and the Justice Department are not prosecuting serious felonies committed by the former president and his Republican co-conspirators who sought to overthrow the election and the Constitution of the United States.

The country faces a stark choice between prosecuting the presumptive criminals, who committed their crimes in broad daylight, or accepting the normalization of impunity for political crimes at high levels, as the country rolls merrily along.

If America chooses the second path, what could possibly go wrong?
