AOC wants to cancel those who worked for Trump

Over the weekend, people started making lists.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicked things off on Friday with a tweet that terrified Trumpworld.

“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” she wrote. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”

A group calling itself the Trump Accountability Project sprung up to heed AOC’s call.

“Remember what they did,” the group’s sparse website declares. “We should not allow the following groups of people to profit from their experience: Those who elected him. Those who staffed his government. Those who funded him.”

Rarely a healthy sign in any democracy, the enemies lists started to freak out some normally unflappable Trump officials in the White House.

“At first I brushed it off as ridiculous, but what is scary is that she’s serious,” said a White House official of AOC’s tweet. “That is terrifying that a sitting member of Congress is calling for something like that. I believe there is a life after this in politics for Trump officials, but the idea that a sitting member of Congress wants to purge from society and ostracize us should scare the American people. It definitely should scare the American people more than it scares me. That type of rhetoric is terrifying when you have 70 million Americans who voted for this president. It might start with Trump officials but what if they go further?”

Before the election, when polls suggested an anti-Trump rout, some current and former Trump officials seemed to be positioning themselves for a new era when they would be forced to shed their association with the president. One top official at the White House became a bit of an inside joke among Washington reporters for sending conspicuous private texts taking digs at the administration and claiming to crave post-election life without Trump.

And some Republicans found it curious when a recent RNC official suddenly tweeted his support of Biden the day before the election. Was he having trouble finding a new job? Did he move to Silicon Valley or Portland, Ore.?

But the results, at least for the moment, have changed that conversation, with more Republicans on the Hill and Trump officials now insisting there may be less of a penalty for service to Trump.

Many top Trump advisers now say they’re not worried, and they point to the aftermaths of similarly controversial administrations as reassurance. They argue that if the Bush-era politicians and staffers who led the country to war in Iraq survived without being purged from politics, media and corporate America, then Trump’s advisers won’t either.

“The Bush people faced this,” said one of the president’s closest advisers. “Bush left office very unpopular, people thought thousands of people died in an unnecessary war and he was responsible for it. Everybody forgets that now that he’s an artist who doesn’t do partisan politics.”

This person pointed to the wealth accumulated by the two main architects of the war since Bush left office. “Don Rumsfeld did very well for himself when he left government,” said the close Trump adviser, who already has an unannounced book deal in hand. “Dick Cheney? I’ve been to his house in Wyoming!”

The close Trump adviser did allow that some staffers could have trouble in pockets of corporate America or Hollywood but the adviser isn’t personally concerned about finding work. “For somebody like me, I'm writing a book, I'm going to write a sequel,” the close Trump adviser said. “I get paid handsomely to give speeches. I have my corporate consulting. Maybe that’s not everyone else. But I can’t imagine I’m alone in that way. Are people going to say, ‘Oh shit, Mike Pompeo, you’re not secretary of State anymore so we can’t talk to you!’ Even the younger staffers — people still want people who worked in the White House. You have breathed rarefied air.”

Interviews with numerous current and former Trump officials reveal that while the talk of lists and permanent cancelation bubbling up on social media is worrisome, few are taking it seriously. Most Trump officials feel that the president’s better-than-expected showing in the election, the history of Bush-era “warmongers” (as one Trump official called them) easily re-integrating into polite society, and the myopia of both the news media and the loudest voices on the left will all conspire to allow even the most controversial Trump aides to continue working in politics and the private sector.

None of the Trump officials interviewed for this story seriously believed that Trump would prevail in the election, and it was taken as a given that they would all soon be looking for work outside the administration.

“There were a lot of Trump people who were afraid of this,” said an administration official. “If there was a massive defeat and we lost the Senate and he lost in a landslide, there would be this purge, both by the establishment Republicans and the Democrats. An employment and maybe even a legal purge against people who worked for the president. Obviously they can’t do that now.”

He added, “I think there’s a sense of relief that because the election was so close and win or lose, it clearly was not a repudiation of the president, so I think that gives people a lot of comfort.” Despite the comparisons on the left of the jubilant celebrations Saturday in American cities across the country looking like the toppling of a dictator in a foreign land, this person insisted that Trump’s loss was no different than that of previous incumbents who lost.

Most Trump officials viewed the lack of a massive repudiation as a powerful rejoinder to any arguments from Never Trumpers that they should be banned from GOP politics or corporate America.

“The general thinking is that people are actually feeling hopeful about the trajectory of the GOP because it was so close, so even if the president loses, it shows that there are a lot of people like us, or at least who support what we did. So I think people are feeling better about job possibilities,” said a senior administration official.

Some folks in MAGA-world are almost celebratory about what they see as the avoidance of a crushing loss. “At the end of this he’s going to get 69-70 million votes, give or take,” said a Trump adviser. “He’s expanded the Republican voting base, so I think Trumpism is here to stay.”

While some of this may sound delusional, it’s not inconceivable that these Trump aides are correct. The left will soon have bigger priorities when it comes to policy and holding the Biden White House accountable. And it’s true that at the height of the Iraq War, many anti-war liberals swore that they would make sure those responsible for that quagmire never worked in politics again.

Not only have most of them thrived, many of them became the left’s best allies in their fight against Trumpism.

While Trump officials with good reputations and bipartisan relationships will likely land well in the private sector, other mid-level Trump aides might have to launder their experience by working on another campaign or two, or finding a job on Capitol Hill.

“The easier path for some of the people might be to go work on a campaign or go work for another official and then you have another line on your resume,” said a Senate GOP aide, adding that his LinkedIn page “has been getting lit up” with Trump aides seeking to chat about potential jobs.

The President was hiring right wing neo Nazis in broad daylight, telling people to inject themselves with bleach as a cure for a virus which he admitted he let rage out of control intentionally and lying with every breath about every topic.

Not a single elected Republican ever spoke out against him and there were zero consequences to any of his actions or theirs.

It would be incredibly stupid to ever allow these people an inch of power ever again. They'll just do it again because they got away with it the first time. It wasn't just ONE issue. There were multiple ones over the course of 4 years.

This live and let live attitude is exactly how these people came into power. They know this. They thrive on it.

I hope and pray that while Biden says he's willing to work with them he also knows there's no way he ever can. The crimes are too heinous and you shouldn't negotiate with Nazis and racists. It legitimizes them and it will continue to tear this country apart.

People are still angry and they won't get over it for a long time.

To be fair, it's not like he hasn't been doing that song and dance since 2015. Him backing Trump, blocking bills or agreeing to whatever fascist agenda of the day is being placed before him is nothing brand new.

Also what they've done during the past few years makes anything they did when Obama was President pale in comparison. To add to that they figured out that they can get any crazy 'ole thing done by staying in lock step and agreeing with each other no matter what personal dissents they have.

Just wait until the stories come out about what's REALLY happening in those Ice Detention Facilities. I feel bad that Biden will have to deal with that [italic]but deal with that he will.[/italic]

"And if the forces of darkness engender new Hitlers, playing on people's basest and most backward instincts in order to further new criminal designs against humanity, let no one see in them any trait of grandeur or heroism.

A crime is a crime, and criminals do not cease to be criminals because their crimes are recorded in history and their names remembered. A criminal remains a criminal; a murderer remains a murderer.

History's only true heroes, the only true leaders of mankind are those who help to establish freedom, who see freedom as the greatest strength of an individual, a nation or state, who fight for the equality, in all respects, of every individual, people and nation." --  Vasily Grossman

Ford pardoning Nixon was the first step on this road, as the GOP realized their people at the highest levels could commit crimes and there would be no accountability in the interest of keeping the peace.

Holding people legally accountable for their crimes and creating political hit lists are two very different things.

AOC is an authoritarian with a throng of self-righteous, ignorant, shallow-end, budding totalitarians shoring up her ego. Her instincts and behavior is identical to that of Trump and all leaders of autocracies. It’s not *better* just because some of her politics are environmental, it’s still autocratic bullshit.

Anyone who falls in favor of political hit lists cannot simultaneously claim to want to live in a Democracy, such as the one outlined in the US Constitution, which prioritizes, before all else, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Belief and Freedom of Association. The instinct to *destroy* those considered *wrongthinkers* is an entirely totalitarian instinct.

We have laws and courts to keep order. Whether the justice system can be improved, is not the issue at hand here. Crimes are punished in legal courts, not in ideological mobs, if you live in a Democracy.

A "hit list" is a list of people to murder, which is not what AOC is calling for you hysterical loon. Cram it, Boris.

Ignore these right wing trolls. Politico itself is accused of being right wing at times. Republicans smear democrats far far worse than anything AOC is calling for so asking her and the rest of us to "be civil" to Trump fascists once he's gone is ludicrous.

Also: he's refusing to leave at this very moment. At some point his supporters and enablers become literal traitors. These criticisms are fair and necessary, and won't crumble from the usual GOP talking points or disinformation campaigns.

So, the process for investigating and prosecuting crimes, in the United States, is to present evidence to law enforcement and, for elected officials, to create Congressional investigatory committees. Stoking ideological mobs on Twitter and encouraging them to create hit lists and ruin people’s lives is not part of that process. As a member of Congress, AOC could present her argument to a handful of colleagues and, if they agree that there should be a formal investigation, they can for a committee to conduct one or several. We do not live in a nation of mob rule. We live in a nation of laws.

Illustrating the pushback current and former Trump officials are facing, one aide still looking for a job "recalled a conversation in which they were told that they were considered part of the 'Hitler Youth,'" adding, "That attitude is not helpful."

With Troye admitting one potential employer telling her association with the current administration is considered a "liability," Elizabeth Neumann, another former Homeland Security official told Politico, "While junior-level employees working on noncontroversial issues might not have problems finding new employment, anyone associated with controversial Trump policies, such as immigration, were blacklisted."

Particularly damning is any association with the Trump child separation policies'

AOC is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT correct. AGAIN. All of Trump supporters need to be eradicated from the government.

I agree. This isn't some kind of totalitarian "cultural purification" initiative. It's like this:

[quote]but the idea that a sitting member of Congress wants to purge from society and ostracize us should scare the American people.

No, idiot, YOU scare the American people. It's not calling for these people to be sent to reeducation camps; it's a warning that people like you enabled a wannabe dictator and were perfectly OK with it. We now know what you're capable of, even if you think you're completely normal. We're protecting ourselves against YOU.

[quote]That type of rhetoric is terrifying when you have 70 million Americans who voted for this president. It might start with Trump officials but what if they go further?”

Elections have consequences.

[quote]purge from society and ostracize us

Unlike the MAGAts who just want to take the country by force and shoot anyone they don't like?

You fucking Trump traitors are really something else. You're all about civility and respect, and law and order, except for when you're cheering on cops for shooting black people or storming our nation's capital to overthrow our democracy. FUCK OFF.

Any politician who supported the LIE that the election was crooked, stolen, deserves to be cancelled. Lying has consequences especially in public service. Fuck them.
