Democrats are nothing if not vindictive. It is a trait well suited to people drawn to political power with an eye toward the centrally planned world. You need a police state to enforce that sort of control and people willing to break a few eggs to make the omelet. So, this is no surprise.
We’ve talked about this before and watched as it was called not true or fake or a conspiracy theory. Okay, but they have a frikkin’ website where they are collecting names.
When someone asked if anyone was making lists and taking names,
“Yes, we are,” answered former Obama administration staffer Michael Simon, citing the Trump Accountability Project. “Every Administration staffer, campaign staffer, bundler, lawyer who represented them — everyone.”
On the website’s landing page, it urges urges that “[w]e must never forget those who helped further the Trump agenda,” adding that “the world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The site is a self-described “permanent record” of those who elected the president, including Trump campaign staffers, Republican National Committee members, and affiliated PACs in 2016 or 2020.
If you think this is some passive exercise in shaming, you’d be wrong and a bad student of even recent history. The riots, the mobs, the guillotines, the kill the rich crowd, it’s not just street theater.
Individuals who donated a “significant amount”—$1000 or more—in efforts to re-elect the president and related campaign committees are also blacklisted.
Others who worked in the Trump administration; endorsed the president in a public light; were appointed to federal boards, commissions, or the judiciary; and staffed law firms that represented the Trump name in any capacity are named.
Former Pete Buttigieg national surrogates director Emily Abrams wrote before her account went private: “We’re launching the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.
Lawyers, staffers, supporters, oh, my!
I guess we’d best look at what they did. Booming economy. Record low unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, women, teens, just about everyone. They made us energy independent and freed us from Middle Eastern conflicts and their impact on energy costs and the economy. Trump made the UN and NATO do more to pay their own way instead of just writing bigger checks with your tax dollars.
He put the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism on notice and began a process of real peace and cooperation in the Middle East.
That’s a very short list (here’s a longer one), but let’s remember what they did because these people plan to not only undo it but to punish anyone who dares to challenge them on that.
The Obama Administration did it. They gave donor lists to left-wing mob groups, used the IRS to go after opponents’ supporters, and weaponized domestic spying to target enemies and build dossiers for future use if and when needed.
If Biden’s claim to victory holds up – and the President is challenging the legitimacy – all of that will return but with more vengeance. This Democrat party is far more vindictive than those that preceded them. Riots, looting, assault, intimidation, violence.
And they are taking names, destroying lives and careers if needed, to ensure they lock on power.
That’s not new but being open about it is and that’s dangerous. And not just to lawyers, staffers, and donors.
