In Nazi Germany, one way that the Nazi’s kept people in line was by having children spy on their parents, and then if the parent/s weren’t supportive enough of Hitler and his cronies, they’d be taken off to a concentration camp. This occurred also in Stalin’s Soviet Union. And has occurred many times throughout history. People were sent to the guillotine in the French Revolution by their neighbors – spying on them and reporting them for likely doing nothing more than complaining about the price of bread.
Well now the Roanoke Times, under the guise of Dan Casey, is suggesting that Congressmen Ben Cline, Morgan Griffith, and Bob Good should be reported to the “Democracy Stoppers Hotline” (aka the FBI) for inciting violence. Article here.
Radical leftists never miss a chance to show us how narrow minded they are. One of the great things about our National Experiment is the right to agree to disagree. However leftists cannot handle honest and civil disagreement. Congressmen Cline/Good/Griffith believe (and I tend to agree with them) that there was systemic fraud in the 2020 election in certain states, and thus did not want to seat the electors from those states where they believe that fraud occurred. This is their right as Americans, and their responsibility as legislators, to protect the US from a fraudulent election, and given the fact that the overwhelming majority of their constituents believe that the 2020 election was fraudulent, these 3 patriots have a responsibility to answer to their constituents.
If Mr. Casey does not like these 3 fine men, it’s his right to do so. This is why we have elections. He has a right to campaign against them, and to use his column in the Roanoke Times as his sounding board to have them voted out of office. But to actually suggest that Cline/Good/Griffith should be reported to the FBI, this is beyond lunacy. For all their talk of Trump and tyranny, what Mr. Casey is suggesting is tyrannical in the extreme. Also for the record, filing a false report to law enforcement is a crime. Something that Mr. Casey and the Roanoke Times should think about the next time they write/publish an article like this.
Quite frankly, the Roanoke Times should seriously consider firing Mr. Casey for his dangerous statement.
