Circular Firing Squad Forms

Lindsey Graham is a mendacious little twerp, but he made one prediction back in 2016 that is coming to fruition now:

In the aftermath of Donald Trump's loss to Joe Biden, there are rifts among Republicans, with crazed attorney Lin Wood urging Trump supporters not to vote in the upcoming Georgia senate runoff elections:  

"Do not be fooled twice. This is Georgia, we ain't dumb. We're not going to go vote on January 5th on another machine made by China. You're not going to fool Georgians again. Why would you go back and vote in another rigged election? For God's sake, fix it. You got to fix it before we'll do it again." 

 Wood's partner in the scam, Sidney Powell, is also echoing this bizarre strategy. This isn't going over well with mainstream Republicans, such as Newt Gingrich, have determined that Wood and his gang of grifters, pose a danger to Republican electoral prospects:

Poking around social media sites, it would seem that Breitbart, with its criticism of Wood, will be the next right-wing media operation to be determined insufficiently pure of ideology.  The right-wing is fracturing into factions in the aftermath of Trump's loss, and a Dolchsto├člegende is being written in real-time.  The 2022 and 2024 Republican primaries are sure to be a three-ring circus, with QAnon adherents, mainstream MAGA morons, and traditional Republicans jockeying for position in a party that has gone completely around the bend.  The circular firing squad has started to form up, and I keep scratching my head, pondering why they are tearing themselves apart over an incompetent con artist who managed to hijack their party.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't laughing :)

Because the Biden and Harris presidency will only increase inequality in the US and do nothing to really help the American worker, I believe that in four or eight years a person much more competent and evil than Donald Trump will be elected POTUS. Gird your loins.

Please stop calling attention to this. The right factions might notice.

It's up to us to make sure that the Democrats do the right thing. These people work for us, we need to be active to keep them in line.

I don't have that big a web presence. Plus, these people don't leave their epistemic bubbles.
