For years, there have been predictions that Donald Trump would wind up destroying the Republican Party, and it appears that day may well have arrived.
During a “Stop the Steal” rally held in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, angry pro-Trump protesters made it clear they’re furious with the GOP for not fighting hard to make sure the federal courts named Trump the winner of the 2020 presidential election, even though he lost by over 7 million ballots in the popular vote and 74 in the Electoral College.
So what do the MAGA faithful have in mind as retribution for Trump losing? They say they want to burn the Republican Party to the ground.
One of the speakers at the Saturday rally was right-wing provocateur Nick Fuentes, who told the crowd:
Wow! So they’re going to destroy the GOP. That’s a hell of goal, but at this point it shouldn’t be too difficult, mainly because Republicans have already sown the seeds of their destruction by cozying up to Trump in the first place and embracing his blatant racism, misogyny, homophobia, and hatred. The GOP has made that their calling card, and everyone is now aware of where they stand on the deeply American idea of equality and opportunity for all.
Destroy the GOP? By all means. It’s not worth a plug nickel anyway, so let it wither and die.
