They Call It “Commitment To America”

The Don has now decided that the letter Q is his favorite letter. After all, he did share an image of himself sporting a “Q” pin, for QAnon, and has been reposting more QAnon messaging on his social media site, “Lie Social.” 

Rumor has it that he might create a few Sesame Street episodes on his social media platform. The pilot episode will feature the letter Q. Rumor has it that it was a tough decision to choose Q as his favorite letter as he had to relegate L (for Lying and Lawlessness) to runner up.

Here’s how the show begins:

Today, boys and girls, we are going to learn about the letter Q. 

The Don is for QAnon.

Fingers pointed to the sky makes him high.

What’s all the fuss, what’s to get 

it’s really such a fun letter in the alphabet.

Now to the piece.

Kevin McCarthy and the Republicans unveiled their “Commitment to Autocracy,” oops, America” platform. Here is the commitment we will get if they take over the House. Short on details, this is what it espouses:

We want “a nation that’s safe,” “a future that’s built on freedom”, and “a government that’s accountable. 

So let’s deconstruct this. What does “a nation that is safe” mean? 

Making sure anyone who wants a gun can have one? Screaming foul and threatening to defund the F.B.I. because The Don refused to return classified documents (that are illegal for him to have!) that could jeopardize our national security? 

Did it make you feel safer when Lindsey Graham threatened that there would be “riots in the streets,” if The Don were indicted? How about Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, brazenly reiterating before the January 6th committee that the results of the 2020 election were fraudulent? How about fostering White Supremacy and Christian Nationalism fomenting racism and anti-semitism.

Doesn’t it make you feel like you want to take to your favorite chair, put your feet up, and take a little nap?

What about a “future built on freedom”? Does that include making voting more difficult? Intimidating poll workers? Does it include all those candidates of yours who are running as election deniers, who if put in power, could use their office to change the results of elections? Freedom to carry an automatic rifle? Freedom to tell schools what books children can read, what teachers can teach? Freedom to storm the Capitol in order to overturn the results of an election and refer to it as a happening that got a bit out of control? Does that include supporting a former president who has no regard for democracy, and if re-elected would get to fulfill his fantasy of becoming the autocrat he has always wanted to be? Does it include Ginni Thomas, insisting that the results of 2020 were fraudulent? Is that the kind of freedom you are offering the American people? (Sorry for the repetition, but I just can’t stop thinking about Ginni!)

Doesn’t it make you feel like you want to take to your favorite chair, put your feet up, and take a little nap?

Now to a “government that is accountable.” Sorry, but I can’t get Ginni off my mind. The only government she wants to be accountable to is the government that reflects her extreme views, where democracy dies. In fact, now that I think of it she reminds me of the venal and frightening character Angela Lansbury played in the Manchurian Candidate, where she tries to mastermind overthrowing the government. 

A government that is accountable for making the rich richer. A government accountable for threatening social security. A government that will make sure big pharma doesn’t have to negotiate with the government to bring down the cost of prescription drugs for seniors. A government that will be accountable for denying climate change and undoing environmental regulations. A government that will foster denying the results of elections if they are not in its favor. A government that will be accountable for creating a national ban on abortion. 

Doesn’t it make you feel like you want to take to your favorite chair, put your feet up, and take a little nap?

Before ending, let’s turn to Joe Kent, who is running for a congressional seat in western Washington who reflects the agenda of many Republicans.

“Our agenda for the first two years is simple: “Impeachment, obstruction, and oversight. The Biden agenda dies off in the crib.” We talking infanticide here, Joe? 

Kent also promised to impeach Vice President Kamala Harris, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and the secretary of homeland security, Alejandro Mayorkas. Why stop there? Why not impeach Hillary Clinton? That’s a good idea you say? Oh, right, she doesn’t hold office. Shucks, that would have been so much fun, wouldn’t it?

Kent also promised to hold Anthony Fauci “accountable” for the “scam that is Covid.” When asked  what holding Fauci accountable meant, he replied: “criminal charges.” When queried further about what charges, he replied “Murder.” 

Hey Joe, can we charge The Don and DeSatanist, too? After all, the first suggested we use ultraviolet light and ivermectin, a drug used to treat parasites in horses, not to mention his general ineptitude that led to tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths. The latter devalued vaccines leading to multitudes of deaths. What ya think Joe?

Are you awake yet?
