At LewRockwell.com, Paul Craig Roberts discusses GOP leadership’s general acquiescence to Democrats’ abuses of power, suggesting that Republicans “being patriotic, feel responsibility to protect the reputation of the US government.” He writes (abridged):
The Democrats in power in Washington have weaponized the FBI and Department of Justice (sic) in an effort to criminalize President Trump. They tried this with Russiagate, with impeachment, with their fabricated January 6 Insurrection, and now they have sent an army of FBI agents into Trump’s home.
The Democrats have become so bold because Republicans, with few exceptions, are not fighters. Republicans come out of the business world where the rule is “don’t rock the boat.” Republicans, being patriotic, feel responsibility to protect the reputation of the US government, and, therefore, acquiesce in Democrat abuses of power. The Republican Majority Leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, for example, helped the Democrats steal the presidential election by denying that such a thing had happened.
For Mitch McConnell Republicans, America cannot afford the embarrassment of acknowledging a stolen presidential election. The Third World demeanor that a stolen presidential election gives the United States is unacceptable to Republicans who believe the honor of the government must be protected at all cost.
