Tuesday Open ThreadPosted: February 16, 2021
Good Morning Sky Dancers!!
I’m not feeling well today, so I’m just posting this as an open thread. Don’t worry, it’s not Covid; I’m having an issue with a condition I’m being treated for and I’m in touch with my doctor. Some stories to check out:
Local GOP leaders are censoring Congresspeople who supported impeachment or conviction. This is incredible.
A new profile on Congressman Adam Kinzinger, one of the few House Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, reveals that several family members actually sent him a handwritten letter criticizing his condemnation of the former president’s actions that led to the riots at the Capitol.
Kinzinger spoke to the New York Times about his efforts to get the GOP to move on from Trump, but the report also highlights how he’s received criticism not just from fellow Republicans but from family members.
The letter reads in part, “Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God!… You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name!”
The Times says this letter — which accuses him of joining the “devil’s army” — came from 11 members of his family.
At one point the letter says, “You should be very proud that you have lost the respect of Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Greg Kelly, etc., and most importantly in our book, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh and us!”
Sorry this isn’t much of a post. I hope to be back to my usual form by Thursday. Have a nice day everyone!
