    Interesting isn’t it that for years while right wingers and Trump supporters had power they have been telling their opponents to basically ‘suck it’ often seemingly to gleefully relish the ‘libtard’ tears at what damage they were doing to the US BUT suddenly now that things are changing many of those same right wingers and Trump supporters are calling saying with all seriousness that there should be ‘unity’ and that their should now take into account their views and concerns and not do anything that they might dislike for the sake of not causing division.

    This while many of those very same right wingers were either storming the Capital building to bring down US democracy or suppoirting the idea.

    It’s as if when people become right wingers they get a hypocrisy bypass as part of the deal.

    You build unity by purging the reasons for division, in this case those who were instrumental in forming the division by their actions.
    This means calling them out and holding them accountable for spreading lies and propaganda, not upholding our laws and norms, and for being cowards and enablers.

    No. Those of good will and a knowledge of history should not give right wingers a pass on their actions. JFK, MLK, and RFK were not killed by left wingers, you know. Laws need to mean something in this country.

    To Add: Fox "news " and others that backed trump should have to pay somehow for their lying , continual horseshit they STILL spew on a nightly basis.

    Yes we can have unity despite their acerbic attitude over the past four years.

    However some people are beyond redemption.

    The retired police officer highlighted on this video was involved in a shooting several years ago but was cleared of any wrongdoing by a grand jury.
