what gop patriots, Rob Reiner?
Director/activist Rob Reiner said this morning on AM Joy that the patriots in the GOP should standoff and demand full investigations of the clown idiot in the White House. He mentioned Sen McCain, Sen Lindsay, and Sen Rubio as being candidates for this patriotic endeavor. I strongly disagree and I contend that there are no patriots in the GOP. The GOP is dedicated to providing greedy billionaire ideologues their wildest wetdreams. All of the above senators voted to confirm the swamp that we euphemistically call a cabinet. All of these men were obstructionists to a real President's policies. All of these men voted lockstep in agreement with the House's insane proposals.
Patriotism requires one to put country before party or president. No GOPer has done such a thing since 2001. They have ignored Democratic proposals to rebuild infrastructure, adequately fund food stamps, provide decent healthcare, education improvements, environmental improvements all to satisfy billionaire polluters. They sit quiet while an unconstitutional Muslim ban is enacted, support charter/segregated schools, starve poor children, advocate for war with Iran, support privatizing the VA, etc. That does not register as patriotic in my view. It supports an undemocratic oligarchy.
Real patriots would be clamoring for the idiot in the WH to resign. They would be on the worthless media putting forth real policies that benefit the bottom ninety percent. They would be denouncing antisemitism, racism, poverty, war, and the greed of Wall Street and more. No there are no patriots in the GOP just trolls for the rich and powerful.
