The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Since the Civil War

The most immense and dangerous public scandal in American history is finally cracking open like a ripe pomegranate. The broad swath of the Trump-hating media that has participated in what has amounted to an unconstitutional attempt to overthrow the government are reduced to reporting the events and revelations of the scandal in which they have been complicit, in a po-faced ho-hum manner to impart to the misinformed public that this is as routine as stock market fluctuations or the burning of an American flag in Tehran.
For more than two years, the United States and the world have had two competing narratives: that an elected president of the United States was a Russian agent whom the Kremlin helped elect; and its rival narrative that senior officials of the Justice Department, FBI, CIA, and other national intelligence organizations had repeatedly lied under oath, misinformed federal officials, and meddled in partisan political matters illegally and unconstitutionally and had effectively tried to influence the outcome of a presidential election, and then undo its result by falsely propagating the first narrative. It is now obvious and indisputable that the second narrative is the correct one.
The authors, accomplices, and dupes of this attempted overthrow of constitutional government are now well along in reciting their misconduct without embarrassment or remorse because—in fired FBI Director James Comey’s formulation—a “higher duty” than the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution compelled them. Or—in fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s words—“the threat” was too great. Nevermind that the nature of “the threat” was that the people might elect someone he and Comey disapproved of as president, and that that person might actually serve his term, as elected.
A Long List of Offenders—and Offenses
The extent of the criminal misconduct of the former law enforcement and intelligence chiefs is now notorious, but to make the right point here, it has to be summarized. The fact that the officially preferred candidate lied to federal officials about her emails and acted in outright contempt of Congress and the legal process in the destruction of evidence, was simply ignored by the FBI director, who announced that she would not be prosecuted, though he had no authority to make that determination. --->

I've been trying to figure out this whole Trump/the right has lost it's mind thing for awhile now, and in the end, there's only one rational conclusion: a great majority of the right is stupid, racist, or both.

There isn't any other explanation as to why they would follow Trump down the rabbit hole of hatred, authoritarianism, corruption, misogyny, protectionism, fiscal irresponsibility, etc.

Trump can never jump the shark with you people. Not even when he loves murderous dictators, and puts the world at risk for nuclear war.

I always had some reservations about being in the GOP. I knew the racism and misogyny were there, I just didn't think it was so huge, and I also believed that most people were sincere in their conservative beliefs. But turns out, the majority were not really conservatives at all. Just hateful, bigoted people who fell for the biggest, sickest dunce in American history.

Ok, I get it. You're too stupid to figure this out. I'm not. I remain a conservative, but I hope the GOP dies. It has now become nothing but a collection of losers, grifters and haters.It's a terrible shame and loss.
