Tangerine and Rudy G. Violated The 19th Century Anti-KKK Acts, Last Month — In Inciting Riots: Federal Suit In DC, Brought By NAACP

If any member of the current GOP feels anything other than nausea, at reading the below. . . they are lost souls. The former president, and nominal head of that party, along with his consigliere, and domestic white terror groups. . . are being sued in a 21st Century version of the 19th Century anti-Klan lawsuits. Pre-planned, well-organized, domestic racial terror we haven’t seen on this scale in over 75 years.

Make no mistake — this was terrorism — with racial animus, at its heart. That is. . . astonishing. But that is. . . today’s GOP, per the sworn complaint at law, in DC:

. . .Plaintiff, the Honorable Bennie G. Thompson, Member of the United States House of Representatives, brings this action against the Defendants for conspiring to prevent him and other Members of Congress from discharging these official duties, in violation of 42 U.S.C. § 1985(1). Enacted as the “Ku Klux Klan Act” in 1871, Section 1985(1) was intended to protect against conspiracies, through violence and intimidation, that sought to prevent Members of Congress from discharging their official duties. The statute was enacted in response to violence and intimidation in which the Ku Klux Klan and other organizations were engaged during that time period. . . .

Under the Ku Klux Klan Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1985(1), Defendants may not “conspire to prevent, by force, intimidation, or threat, any person. . . holding any office, trust, or place of confidence under the United States. . . from discharging any duties thereof; or to induce by like means any officer of the United States to leave any. . . place[] where his duties as an officer are required to be performed, or. . . to molest, interrupt, hinder, or impede him in the discharge of his official duties. . . .”

Defendants Trump, Giuliani, Proud Boys, and Oath Keepers plotted, coordinated, and executed a common plan to prevent Congress from discharging its official duties in certifying the results of the presidential election. . . .

I am off now, to shovel another new 18 inches of snow, soft and powdery — and work off some of this rage. . . rage about an ugly side of. . . America. One I had once naively hoped / thought we largely left behind over a half-century ago. Or at least 30 years ago. Not so, it seems. U G L Y.

  1. Aren’t you tired of carrying the rage around? Sometimes it inspires me to write, sometimes it makes me so sick I can’t write!

    • I am kind of at the point of using it as energy — almost positive energy… this dissipates the anger for me… so I write.

      Welcome — and hang in there!

      Namaste….

  2. Very good to hear. I will follow your lead and try and do the same! nice to meet you, in a manner of speaking.

    Peace.
