After four years of sitting on the political sidelines except to tear up cities and tear down statues, Joe Biden’s more activist supporters are advocating a purge of President Trump’s supporters in Washington that can only spread outward across the nation.
Can backers of President Donald Trump ever be allowed a chance at power again? Not likely.
As the presumptive president-elect struck a unity theme during a speech on Nov. 7, some backers were more fixated on another idea: Dox, cancel out and destroy the Trump-supporting world, reported the Washington Times.
The serious-sounding “Trump Accountability Project” set up a Twitter account and says it will block jobs for, discriminate against, persecute and shame anyone who worked to elect Trump, staffed his government or funded his campaign.
Presumably red-hat wearers will also be on that list of targets.
Rep. Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, the fiery New York Democrat, began the talk of retaliation for unspecified crimes by urging followers to create an anti-Trump archive of evidence.
“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” the socialist liberal heroine tweeted. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
The same day Ocasio-Cortez spoke of “complicity” and the accountability project sprung up, the rumor began to be spread that White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was deleting tweets from her official government account. Biden supporters spread the rumor on social media.
“Sounds like destruction of government records,” tweeted journalist Andrew Feinberg, who writes for the British newspaper The Independent.
