Truth emerges. Call it the Big Treason.

Eric Garland
Suggestion: Don't call the violent assault on democracy "the Big Lie." It doesn't matter what they believe. What matters is that they invited foreign enemies to attack us and then attempted a coup d'état.

It's the Big Treason.

"Ooh, look, these people have been *tricked* into believing this unusual thing - let's study it! Oh, such a problem," is the wrong framework. Relieves criminals of their own FREE WILL AND RESPONSIBILITY.

Selfish, deluded, asshole traitors betrayed America. It doesn't matter why.
Eric Garland

The traitors broke laws, must be tried, and if the evidence is beyond a reasonable doubt, convicted. As such, I don't give a fuck what they believe.

The courts' question is did they:
- Engage in conspiracy
- Assault
- Kill
- Launder money
- Work for foreign nations?
Eric Garland

They can believe the Tooth Fairy encouraged them to attack the Capitol on January 6, 2021. That matters not a whit. The question is, did they:
- Incite violence
- Organize the attack
- Commit wire fraud?

That should be our focus: PROSECUTE CRIMINALS.
Eric Garland

The tax-evading bajillionaires behind the attack on democracy paid big bucks to create these propaganda networks spreading lies and encouraging malicious ignorance.

Eric Garland

No more debates about evolution.
End public discourse on "Is algebra satanic?"
Shut down anyone who calls it a "post-truth world."
Shame and ridicule those who don't believe in science.
Encourage different opinions, but stop allowing people to have their own facts.
Eric Garland

The trend toward Idiocracy was a long-term operation to manufacture consent by cultivating an insane, fascism-prone mindset. It's psychological warfare.

No more gauzy media profiles of the people they turned into weapons. Too much is at stake.

8. And Trump:

May 2021

Gave out the day, the date, the time, and the place for the violent attempted coup on
numerous invitations. Including one in which he said something like, "Jan. 6th be here
and go wild."

Helped paid for "it" using Trump campaign funds.

Had the niece of his chief of staff file the paperwork for the permit for his pre-riot pep rally.

Decapitated the D.C. National Guard so they could not help in responding to what he knew
was going to massive violence.

Refused to send help or call off his attackers after phone calls from Rep. McCarthy and V.P. Pence.

Told the violent insurrectionist criminals who had invaded and damaged the Nation's Capitol that
"he loved 'em."

Lock his ass up.

And Years with the very purpose to overthrow our government
Leading up to the Insurrection.
What’s hard for me to swallow is how absolutely gullible
people are.

‘Patriots’ that don’t believe in Our Constitution.

I actually don't mind if you want to call it "Lie" -- or whatever.
But let's keep in mind that you broke the law. Don't care if you're a cub scout leader back in podunk.

Anyone who argues vehemently against his assertions should be viewed with some suspicion, at the least.

It's the "Big Lie" and the "Big Treason".

They prefer to talk about the "Big Lie" rather than the "Big Treason".

The Big Lie happened before the treasonous act.
