Arizona Republican Party Asks Supporters If They Are Willing To Die For Trump
After 50 Court Losses, Trump Says "The Big One" Is Coming (Though It's Relying On The Same Discredited "Evidence")

On Monday night, around 11 PM, the Arizona Republican Party sent out a tweet asking followers if they were willing to die in Donald Trump's battle to overturn the 2020 election.

About an hour later, AZGOP tweeted a follow-up, posting a clip from the movie Rambo, with the caption: "This is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or die for something."

This latest bout of insanity began when a far-right associate of Roger Stone tweeted "I am willing to give my life for this fight". (The AZ GOP has deleted both tweets.)

Last week, attorney Lin Wood, a proud Trump Cult member and the lawyer for accused murderer Kyle Rittenhouse, told a Georgia audience: "It's 1776 in America again." The hashtag "#1776" is trending on Parler, the social media platform now preferred by far-right extremists. Wood also suggested that Trump's supporters lay siege to Governor Brian Kemp's home (after he joined the Republican Secretary of State and certified Joe Biden's electoral college win).

Both Wood and Trump's illiterate lawyer Sidney Powell (who has trouble spelling the names of states in which she is filing lawsuits) have referred to supporters as "digital soldiers", a popular phrase in the QAnon conspiracy world. (This seems like an insult, since I recall during the W years anonymous far-right cowards who talked tough about the Iraq invasion were derided as "keyboard kommandos".)

On Monday, Lindsey Graham told Fox viewers that there is a "civil war brewing in Georgia" over the (non-existent) question of the election's authenticity. Brian Hughes, associate director of American University’s Polarization and Extremism Research Innovation Lab, says the far-right often frames its political fights as wars between good and evil. "What you're seeing now is this histrionic style being expressed through the cultish dimensions of Trumpism".


The lone victory came on November 5, when a Pennsylvania appellate judge ruled poll watchers must be allowed within six feet of the people counting the votes. Trump touted it as a "big legal win" (of course he did), but it had less than zero to do with actual votes or the election result. Since November 7, when Biden was declared the winner of the election, Trump has lost every court case

Trump's "Elite Strike Force" Lawyer Scorecard:
Cases of COVID-19: 2
Court Cases Won:   1

The First 50 Cases (And 50 Losses) Were Just Practice.

LOL (Another Pathetic, Meaningless, Ego-Boosting Stunt)
Just make sure the border is closed tighter than a MAGA-dolt's mind.
