The stupid is gathering in Pierre today to hear Trump’s Snow-Job Queen blow smoke up our skirts about great it is that we sacrificed over a thousand lives to keep our businesses open and and survived on a ten-figure federal bailout. Tell me again, which party is run by anti-life Communists?
Contributing to the Capitol stupids this afternoon and all Session long will be Senator John Wiik (R-4/Big Stone City), who is apparently gaslighting us about who committed insurrection in Washington D.C. last week:
“I’m not worried at all,” Sen. John Wiik, a Big Stone City Republican said when asked about whether he was concerned about armed protests contesting the outcome of the presidential election. But he raised doubts about whether it was President Donald Trump’s supporters who violently disrupted the U.S. Congress as it certified Democrat Joe Biden as the victor [Stephen Groves, “South Dakota GOP Lawmakers Not Worried About Armed Protests,” AP, 2021.01.11].
Senator Wiik, just who do you think attended the rally where Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani exhorted the crowd to violence? Who do you think heeded those words from the top, vandalized the United States Capitol, beat and killed police officers, and paraded around the Rotunda and the chambers with their Trump flags and other symbols of treason?
Senator Wiik, I know it may be hard for you to accept that the reckless, hateful, violent rhetoric of the leader of your party led to its logical conclusion of reckless hate and violence. But please, believe me: it’s easier to live in reality. We’re going to hear enough stupid from Kristi today. Don’t be stupid yourself: admit your error in supporting Trump, admit that he’s a menace to civil society, and admit that the insurrection last week was his effort to whip his supporters into violently overthrowing democracy.
