Why America’s Two-Party System Can’t Function With Racist Republicans
We’re more than six months into the Biden presidency, and there’s no doubt that a COVID-ridden nation teetering on the brink of non-recovery has benefited greatly from the profound defeat of Donald Trump’s sick and twisted game of “Catch Me If You Can.”
But the election scandal that has taken on a dangerous life of its own, thanks to the enabling of the racist GOP, far-right conspiracy theorists and the criminality of Fox News was the indicator that Trump’s unremarkable exit from his House of Horrors wouldn’t be the permanent silencing that we keep fantasizing about.
If anything, the former Terrorizer-in-Chief has evolved into a nefarious figurehead for QAnon cultists and a so-called political party that has proven beyond a doubt why the existing two-party system is no longer sustainable, based on the GOP’s pledge of allegiance to a national disrupter and orchestrator of the horrific events that almost burned the United States Capitol to the ground.
In the heat of history-making moments, like declaring the official winner of one of the most prolific presidential elections on record, we heard the unwavering denouncements by Republican leadership, including Mitch McConnell and Trump’s staunch allies Lindsey Graham and Kevin McCarthy. They each vocally declared the obvious truths of how Donald Trump committed treason on January 6th by evilly inciting white terrorism to overturn the 2020 election results.
Yet, not long after President Biden’s celebrated re-entry into The White House, both Graham and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy each took separate publicized trips to Trump’s diseased Palm Beach swamp, Mar-a-Largo, for reasons that are blatantly transparent, considering the desperation of an ailing party that’s trying to prevent the implosion of a shaky foundation.
