That is because the dominant strain of American liberalism is not economic socialism but political authoritarianism. Liberals now want to use the force of corporate power to silence those with different ideologies. They are eager for tech monopolies not just to ban accounts they dislike but to remove entire platforms from the internet. They want to imprison people they believe helped their party lose elections, such as Julian Assange, even if it means creating precedents to criminalize journalism.

He and the others got a pretty substantial break by not being executed. Almost nowhere else on earth at that point in time would they not have been for the crimes they confessed to or were convicted of. In fact, in many of those places would have been summarily. That they weren’t here is actually something for us to be proud of.
There is a paradox on the horizon. The incoming President and Vice- President are deeply opposed to the death penalty. I’d expect that once the trials are held, the evidence revealed and the convictions start coming in that there will be some who a person might not have expected to be calling for that form of punishment for what have always, and correctly, been classified as Capital crimes.
I’m not pulling for “the other side” here, but as a person who loves his country I sincerely hope and pray that Congresswoman Sherill’s concerns are unfounded. The rectification of them, if true, might be more than the Nation’s collective psyche can take.
The photo she posted is from 2019. Just another lying hypocrat. Should be removed from congress for trying to incite violence. Hypocrats will put her on a powerful committee used to censor conservative view points. She is their new hero.
