The Pathetic Generation

Posted on

In 1973 and 1974, the “Greatest Generation” was, for the most part, still at the helm of our national government.  When Republicans of that generation learned that a President had participated in actions outside the rule of law, they reacted responsibly with honor to hold that President to account.  So, if that was the, “Greatest Generation,” today’s Republicans must be part of the, “Pathetic Generation.”

When today’s Republicans learned of a President’s offences against our nation, instead of removing this twice impeached president from office for crimes of corruption and insurrection, they embraced this liar, cheater and graceless election loser as their “Dear Leader,” turning him into a cult figurehead.  Even when learning that after leaving office that it is quite evident that Trump stole confidential and top-secret documents of the United States of America that puts our national security at risk, instead of condemning that former president for endangering our national security, we find them fully participating in his corruption by spinning, distracting and projecting their own worst faults onto the agencies that help to protect our nation from criminals and foreign espionage; not even caring that it puts the lives of these dedicated law enforcement agents in jeopardy.

It doesn’t get any more irresponsibly pathetic than that. Dereliction of duty is one thing…but having members of a once respectable American Political Party being completely complicit in national security crimes is quite another.
