AOC, Jen Rubin (WaPo), and Former Buttigieg Staffers Launch Effort To Purge Trump Supporters From Public Life
They poked the bear: Faced massive pushback from Trump supporters.
Listen to this article
A few weeks ago, former Clinton Administration official Robert Reich called for a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to identify and shame people associated with Trump’s presidency. Now AOC, Jennifer Rubin, and others are actually pushing just such a thing. These are the people who accused Trump of being a fascist.
Mia Cathill reports at the Post Millennial:
New blacklist of ‘Trump sycophants’ inspired by AOC being compiled
At the behest of ‘squad’ member and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a blacklist of “Trump sycophants”—entitled “The Trump Accountability Project”—is archiving the names of individuals who “elected, served, funded, supported, and represented” President Donald Trump.
“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future,” the US representative tweeted Friday afternoon.
“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.”

Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into "polite" society. We have a list.

Many of the people connected to this effort are now deleting tweets and protecting Twitter accounts but there are screenshots:

This woman worked for the Pete Buttigieg campaign:
Congratulations, America! You are on the verge of putting people into power that want to scapegoat & blacklist Trump supporters for opposing their authoritarian globalist agenda. If you're a Democrat, pat yourself on the back for enabling actual fascism 👇https://t.co/COVCa2ko0Y

The left is speaking publicly and openly about not allowing any conservative to hold public office, a job, or have any form of representation whatsoever. What does that sound like to you?

The left is everything they accuse others of being.DONATE
