Left-wing Democrats appealed for assistance in compiling a list of Trump supporters so they can be held “accountable” for supporting President Trump after the election.
'Democratic socialist' Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
Jennifer Rubin, a Washington Post columnist tweeted that anyone challenging the 2020 election results should not only be disqualified from holding public office, but ostracized from society.
“Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into ‘polite’ society,” she tweeted. “We have a list.”
It should be remembered that there were no lists of Hillary Clinton supporters after the 2016 election. there was no retribution, no Trump inspired cancel culture. But authoritarianism, lists of political enemies, retribution for perceived wrong-doings are all traits of Socialist governments, national or international. This is the start, and history tells us where it ends.
