Congressional Democrats are wasting no time trying to destroy their political opponents. They’re threatening to expel more than 100 elected Republicans from Congress, name the most outspoken conservatives to the terrorist “no-fly” list, and even cancel the First Amendment.
Liberals know the Capitol riot has put the wind at their backs, and they’re not going to let a crisis go to waste.

They’re accusing any Republican who raised concerns about voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election of backing the “insurrection.”
Liberals have singled out two conservative leaders—Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz—and want them treated like Al Qaeda terrrorists.
Senators have “no exemption for being put on the no-fly list,” said Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee.
A petition to have both senators disbarred and unable to practice law has garnered the signatures of legal scholars and law school students nationwide.
And that’s not enough for the Democrats: They want Republicans kicked out of the government.
“Even a member of Congress that commits a crime, you know, they’re expelled from the body,” Thompson said, referring to the senators. “There are ethics charges that can be brought against those individuals.”

He said even as he spoke, his “people are looking at all of this.”
Democratic Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Sherrod Brown of Ohio have said, if Cruz and Hawley don’t quit the Senate, they should be expelled… and they appear to have support from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.
The leftists aren’t just targeting Cruz and Hawley, two likely Republican presidential candidates in 2024 or 2028. They basically want to free the GOP out of Congress and have the entire government to themselves.
Democrats led by Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., want Congress to refuse to seat any Republican who questioned any part of the 2020 presidential election’s integrity.
That would apply to at least 126 of the 211 incoming House Republicans, who supported Texas’ lawsuit challenging the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s unconstitutional changes to the state’s voting procedures.
“Stated simply, the men and women who would act to tear the United States Government apart cannot serve as Members of the Congress,” he tweeted.

“Trying to overturn a democratic election and install a dictator seems like a pretty clear example of that.”

Pascrell didn’t even pretend to be responding to the Capitol riot — he made his demand last December 11.
If the Republicans are allowed to represent the voters who elected them, a team led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., want House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to block their legislation from receiving any action. AOC and Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., have even said they want to wipe the names of Republicans off the bills they introduce, erasing them from history 1984-style.

Democrats don’t plan to stop with Congress; they aim to purge society of every ounce of conservatism, Trump supporters’ concerns, and Middle-American values.
Their rhetoric sounds like it came out of a Chinese Communist Party manual.
“There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed,” said Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson on MSNBC. “It’s as if they are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult, and they have to be deprogrammed. Do you have any idea how we start that process, much less complete it?”
ABC News’ political director said America needs to begin “cleansing the movement [Donald Trump] commands.”
They’ve purged an unknown number of social media accounts, including that of the president of the United States, and removed all posts that mention the phrase “Stop the Steal.”
But some people see this as just a warm-up act. They’re now admitting that their ultimate goal is to dismantle the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The New York Times published a column on the morning of the Capitol riot saying it’s time to revoke the First Amendment. In the article “Have Trump’s Lies Wrecked Free Speech?” columnist Thomas Edsall wrote.

“Trump has provoked a debate among legal scholars over whether the once-sacrosanct constitutional protection of free speech has itself become a threat to democracy by enabling the widespread and instantaneous transmission of lies in the service of political gain.”
Elections have consequences. The people ushered into power by the 2020 election could change America’s government forever—if you let them.
