In spite of the fact that the Democrat Party did not have the success on Election Day that it and the mainstream media predicted (Democrats did not retake the Senate, they lost seats in the House, no state legislatures flipped, and the presidency is still undecided), radicals within the party seem determined to target Republican voters.
As conservative commentator Tammy Bruce points out, “In the year leading up to the 2020 election, there was a familiar refrain among President Trump supporters and the president himself. It goes something like this: The Democrats really weren’t after him, they were after his supporters and he was just standing in the way.
Now, less than a week after the election, we are finding that has been proven shockingly accurate. Despite the fact that not one state has certified their election, the gold-standard political site Real Clear Politics has neither candidate projected at 270 electoral votes, and the Trump campaign is legally challenging alleged ballot irregularities and fraud in multiple swing states, Joseph R. Biden’s supporters are basking in the presumption their candidate has won. After years of hostility, name-calling, harassment, and even violence, at least the Democrats are predictable and are ramping up encouragement for people to trust the worst in themselves.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, channeling her inner Stalin, tweeted this, “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.”
Not long after, a man called Michael Simon, who identifies on Twitter in part as “@BarackObama analytics and @POTUS44 Admin” responded by saying they (which appears to be a collection of former Obama and Buttigieg supporters and staffers) had created the “Trump Accountability Project,” which is a list of people to be punished for supporting Mr. Trump.
Many of their tweets promoting their Stalinistic purge dream have been deleted, but their website makes clear the goal is to destroy people who supported Mr. Trump. They list their targets as “Those who elected him … Those who staffed his government … Those who funded him.” [emphasis added]
