TREASON, A word that’s been thrown about frequently, and carelessly, by the right during the administration of Barack Obama.
But let’s stop and think, for just a moment, about events of just the past couple weeks.
We have had the Republican leander of the House invite a foreign leader to congree to rail against, and undermine, US foreign poilicy. (A policy which, by the way, makes his tiny nation the largest foreign recipient of US foreign aid).
We have seen almost all republican house members signing onto a letter to Iran provoking war, and undermining US foreign policy.
We have seen the Alabama state supreme court- to within a matter of days of the historic march on Selma, defying the federal courts on the issue of gay marriage.
We have seen Mitch McConnel,, writing op-eds and publicly calling for states to ignore federal laws on power plants.
Countless Republicans supporting the case to repeal the Affordable Care Act exchanges based on a technicality of 4 poorly chosen words. (Never mind that the past couple years of wanting to repeal the ACA not a single one of these congressman realized those four words were there, which makes it pretty clear that as they are presenting the case to the SCOTUS in not how congress intended when writing and passing the bill ).
And of course the list grows much bigger if we look back at the last few years.
Make no mistake- we are in the midst of the nations second civil war. A war fought with lies. With money. With power. Instead of with guns. We have people who are supposed to be serving the nation instead bitterly clinging to the worst of american history…serving “their” america even though it is one that never truly existed. Defying the will of the majority of americans to, in their minds, protect what they percieve as america, but which in reality is little more then the dustbin of history.
Indeed, they are not trying to save, nor serve America, but to create a new nation built on the pockets of fear, hate, and intolerance that sadly exist throughout our nation.
