Democracy Has Prevailed.

Special Note To Wendy Bell, The Angel of Death. THIS IS WHY.

Hey, Wendy!

Ever wonder why I continue to call you The Angel of Death?

THIS is why. It's a Research Paper published recently in the JAMA.

The JAMA is the "Journal of the American Medical Association."

You've said a few times that your husband is a doctor. I am assuming he's in the AMA. 

Maybe he can find this research paper for you. Maybe he can read it to you.

In any event, this is what they found: 

The US reported 370 298 COVID-19 deaths (112 per 100 000) during the Delta and Omicron waves (61/100 000 and 51/100 000, respectively). COVID-19 deaths per capita in the US overall and in both state subgroups significantly exceeded those of all peer countries during the study period (Table 1). However, there were significantly fewer COVID-19 deaths in the top 10 states by vaccination uptake (73% coverage) at 75 deaths/100 000 compared with the bottom 10 (52% coverage) at 146 per 100 000 (P < .001). [Emphasis added.]

Feel free to look at those numbers on Table 1, Wendy.

Then there's this from the discussion:

The US continued to experience significantly higher COVID-19 and excess all-cause mortality compared with peer countries during 2021 and early 2022, a difference accounting for 150 000 to 470 000 deaths. This difference was muted in the 10 states with highest vaccination coverage; remaining gaps may be explained by greater vaccination uptake in peer countries, better vaccination targeting to older age groups, and differences in health and social infrastructure. [Emphasis added.]

So in states with higher Covid vaccination coverage there were fewer Covid deaths

What could the connection between those two facts be? Anyone? Anyone?

So Wendy, anytime you posted anything like this a BS board with the sole intent of steering people away from the Covid vaccines, you were putting people's lives at risk.

Wendy, when you say your prayers at night do you ever wonder how many of those extra, unnecessary, unvaccinated deaths were caused by someone listening to you and Brock on Wendy Bell Live? 

How many do you think? 0? 1? More than 1?

November 22, 2022

Ever The Petty, Wendy Bell Acts Out.

Hey, remember this blog post?

It was about St Sen (and failed GOP cand. for PA Gov) Doug Mastriano and his connections to the ongoing debacle of Fulton County's voting machines.

Well, the Angel of Death herself chimed in yesterday with some snark:

It took me a while to notice, however.

Wanna know why?

Because this is what I see when I got to Wendy Bell's twitter account:

It means that whenever Wendy Bell, speekur of Trumpy-trooths and detester of cancul-culcher, posts something on my twitter feed, it looks like this:

So everyone else can see it but I can't. And I can't because of a conscious (and cowardly, BTW) decision of Wendy's.

Keep it classy, Wendy.

But Wendy and me, we go way back. For those new to this blog, let me give you a teeny tiny tour of Wendy's malfeasance.

  • April 29, 2022 -  Wendy Bell spreads covid vaccine misinformation.
  • May 27, 2021 - Wendy Bell a 3-Percenter? Looks like it.
  • January 8, 2021 - Wendy Bell lies about some video she found in order to "prove" that antifa was at the January 6 insurrection.
  • January 7, 2021 - disgraced journalist Wendy Bell doxxed a critic on the air.

And that's just a small reaction to the epically huge sewage stew Wendy Bell routinely feeds her audience.

How many have gotten sick, Wendy, because they believed your Covid misinformation?

In Case You Missed It: Fulton County In Contempt?

And guess who's attached to this all this drek?

(We'll get to it later.)

But in case you missed it:

A Pennsylvania judge has recommended the state's high court impose civil contempt penalties against a Republican-majority county government that this summer secretly allowed a third party to copy data from voting machines used in the 2020 election lost by former President Donald Trump.

Commonwealth Court President Judge Renee Cohn Jubelirer's 77-page report issued late Friday said the July inspection and copying of computer data from machines rented by Fulton County was a willful violation of a court order designed to prevent evidence from being spoiled.

She recommended that the justices find that the county, based on the actions of Republican Commissioners Stuart Ulsh and Randy Bunch, "engaged in vexatious, obdurate, and bad faith conduct" in their lawsuit against the Department of State over whether a 2021 inspection by another outside group meant the machines could no longer be used.

You can read the recommendation here

Basically this is what happened:

103. Commissioners Ulsh and Bunch knew that by allowing the Speckin Inspection to proceed, they would be in violation of the Supreme Court’s Injunction Order. (pg 46)

But let's look at to some of the stuff adjacent to this recommendation, shall we?

 Like this from Reuters

Pennsylvania's top election official has decertified the voting equipment of a rural county that participated in an audit of the 2020 election requested by a Republican state lawmaker and staunch ally of former President Donald Trump. 

Acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid said on Wednesday that Fulton County violated the state election code by giving a third party access to its election databases and other certified equipment in an audit of the 2020 results. 

The audit was conducted in December at the request of Republican state Senators Doug Mastriano and Judy Ward, who asked county officials to allow Wake Technology Services Inc to probe the county's results, according to media reports.

Didja see it? Didja? DIDJA?

But what's this about "Wake Technology Services Inc" and how does it relate to the "Speckin Investigation" mentioned in the recommendation? 

Basically, this happened:

The Secretary decertified the Dominion Voting Equipment in Fulton County’s possession after the County permitted a third-party consultant known as Wake TSI, Inc. (Wake TSI) to inspect the Voting Equipment following its use in the 2020 General Election.

Then this happened:

On July 8, 2021, several months after Wake TSI’s investigation and report, the Secretary issued “Directive 1 of 2021” , which prohibited county boards of elections from providing physical, electronic, or internal access to third parties for purposes of conducting an examination of state-certified electronic voting systems.

Then this:

On October 18, 2022, the Secretary filed an application in the Supreme Court requesting an order holding Fulton County in contempt and imposing sanctions, alleging it violated the Supreme Court’s Injunction Order by allowing a different third party known as Speckin Forensics, LLC to inspect the Dominion Voting Equipment at issue in this litigation on July 13 and 14, 2022.

Which led to this:

All chain of custody has been broken, and it is now impossible to determine what the state of the Dominion Voting Equipment was immediately after the Wake TSI Inspection. That is, the Speckin Inspection rendered the Voting Equipment unreliable as evidence of what Wake TSI did, and it is impossible to reverse that effect.

And so on.

And it all began with this

The company that is conducting a hand recount of nearly 2.1 million Maricopa County ballots conducted an election audit in rural Pennsylvania county at the request of a state senator who has been a prominent advocate of the “Stop the Steal” movement that has spread baseless conspiracy theories that the 2020 presidential election was rigged against Donald Trump.

According to records and news coverage from Fulton County, Penn., state senators Doug Mastriano and Judy Ward asked county officials to allow Wake Technology Services Inc. to conduct an audit of the election. Ward, who represents the rural county in southern central Pennsylvania, told the Arizona Mirror that she passed the request on to county officials at Mastriano’s behalf.

Now the he lost the governor's race (I'd say "Thank God!" But, according to Doug, God was supposed to make sure Doug won.), shouldn't someone ASK DOUG MASTRIANO WHAT HE KNOWS ABOUT:

  • Wake Technology?
  • Speckin Forensics?

Scratch the surface Trump's coup for any reference to Pennsylvania and you find DOUG MASTRIANO.

State Senator Doug Mastriano has a lot to answer for.

November 18, 2022

Mastriano Lost And He's Still Lying About His Loss.

Let's start here:

So just HOW WRONG was this? Ryan Deto (above) has the facts about the real numbers of votes.

But what about how those numbers relate as percentages of the total?

Let's look there (these are Wikipedia numbers, BTW).


Shapiro: 3,000,503 votes or 56.3% of votes cast

Mastriano: 2,230,260 votes or 41.9% of the votes cast


Wolf: 1,920,355 votes or 54.9% of votes cast

Corbett: 1,575,511 votes or 45.1% of the votes cast


Corbett: 2,172,763 votes or 54.5% of votes cast

Onorato: 1,814,788 votes or 45.5% of the votes cast


Rendell: 1,913,235 votes or 53.4% of votes cast

Fisher: 1,589,408 votes or 44.4% of the votes cast

If my numbers are accurate, of the previous 6 gubernatorial elections in Pennsylvania (2022, 2018, 2014, 2010 and 2006) fully half of the losers in each race (see above) got a larger percentage of the total vote than did Doug Mastriano in 2022.

Let's see. 

Doug got the real numbers wrong and the numbers as percentages wrong. 

Gets me to thinking that his trying to muster up some sort of popularity cred by pointing out his factoid without any context makes St Sen (and failed GOP cand. for PA Gov) Doug Mastriano doubly dishonest about his massive massive embarrassing loss.

November 17, 2022

In Case You Missed It, There's This

From The NY Times:

The Senate on Wednesday took a crucial step toward passing landmark legislation to provide federal protections for same-sex marriages, as 12 Republicans joined Democrats to advance the Respect for Marriage Act, putting it on track to become law in the twilight of the Democratic-held Congress.

The 62-to-37 vote, which came only days after the midterm elections in which Democrats retained control of the Senate but lost the House to Republicans, was a rare and notable last gasp of bipartisanship by a lame duck Congress as lawmakers looked toward an era of political gridlock.

This is the legislation, by the way.

And it says:

In general.—No person acting under color of State law may deny—

“(1) full faith and credit to any public act, record, or judicial proceeding of any other State pertaining to a marriage between 2 individuals, on the basis of the sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin of those individuals; or

“(2) a right or claim arising from such a marriage on the basis that such marriage would not be recognized under the law of that State on the basis of the sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin of those individuals.

Why is this important? Let's go back to The Times:

The push to bring it up for a vote began over the summer, after Justice Clarence Thomas suggested in his opinion in the ruling that overturned the 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which had established abortion rights, that the court also “should reconsider” precedents enshrining marriage equality and access to contraception.
Here's what Justice Thomas wrote:

The Court today declines to disturb substantive due process jurisprudence generally or the doctrine’s application in other, specific contexts. Cases like Griswold v. Connecticut, (right of married persons to obtain contraceptives); Lawrence v. Texas, (right to engage in private, consensual sexual acts); and Obergefell v. Hodges, (right to same-sex marriage), are not at issue. The Court’s abortion cases are unique, and no party has asked us to decide “whether our entire Fourteenth Amendment jurisprudence must be preserved or revised.” Thus, I agree that “[n]othing in [the Court’s] opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion.”

For that reason, in future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell. Because any substantive due process decision is “demonstrably erroneous,” we have a duty to “correct the error” established in those precedents. After overruling these demonstrably erroneous decisions, the question would remain whether other constitutional provisions guarantee the myriad rights that our substantive due process cases have generated.

So, yea.

The Orange Vulgarity Has Returned.

If you missed it, I'll let The Times fill you in:

Donald J. Trump announced his third run for the White House in a rambling speech late Tuesday, retreading old themes as he sought to remake himself as a political outsider for his 2024 run.

And so on. 

The news was met by some deep fact-checks:

And so on.

But let's let the last paragraph of this Washington Post piece sum up Trump's political baggage.

And he has profoundly altered the tenor of American public life — shattering long-held standards of decorum and civility with often shocking attacks on political rivals, judges and reporters. He has frequently made racist and antisemitic remarks, mocked people with disabilities and denigrated developing countries, bragged about sexual assault and paid hush money to a porn star, praised dictators, declined to disavow extremists, inspired his supporters to resort to violence and defended white supremacists and Jan. 6 rioters.

That's a lotta links.

Feel free to peruse them at your leisure.

November 14, 2022

Well, It IS A Concession, But...

By now we all know that failed GOP gubernatorial Doug Mastriano has conceded.

But look closely at how he does it and what he says when he does it.

Take a close look at paragraph Five:

Pennsylvania is in great need of election reform. As I write this, the final results of the 2022 Mid-term Elections are still not available. We can and must do better to make our elections more transparent, secure and more quickly decided. Pennsylvanians deserve to have faith in our elections. In my role as a State Senator, I will do my very best to help Josh Shapiro deliver that to Pennsylvanians and, if he does, I will be the first to acknowledge and applaud his achievement.

Let me get one chunk of Doug's dishonestly out of the way early.

Second and third sentences:

As I write this, the final results of the 2022 Mid-term Elections are still not available. We can and must do better to make our elections more transparent, secure and more quickly decided.
As a member of the state legislature knows full well that it's the law that the counting has to take as long as it does. Doug Mastriano knows full well that the state legislature could have changed this. The mail-in and early ballots, for example, could have been counted as they arrived if only the law allowed.

And yet while he's telling his followers that it's part of the system that still must be changed for them to regain their faith in the system, he knows full well that the GOP dominated state legislature could have changed it, but chose not to.

But the bigger question here is: How do you think the words in Doug's fifth paragraph will land in the ears of Doug's many followers? Those whose faith in the system, for example, was degraded when they swallowed whole Doug's big lie that the 2020 election was stolen and that Pennsylvania's insecure voting system was part of the cause?

After reading the above paragraph, how easy would it be for them to think that Doug's victory was also stolen but there's nothing he can do about it right now so he's doing what's right by conceding anyway?

When you've grasped that, you're hearing Doug's dog-whistle to the 2.2 million that voted for him.

Keep that in mind when you read what Doug wrong after thanking his voters he says:

This was indeed "The People's" movement. It's a movement that defied the odds, and it's a movement that will continue to defy the odds. It must.

But still it's a concession, I suppose.

November 11 - A Repost

 Happy Birthday, Stanley Tucci, Gen George S. Patton, Demi Moore, and Calista Flockhart.

And of course, a Happy Birthday to Kurt Vonnegut who wrote this:

I will come to a time in my backwards trip when November eleventh, accidentally my birthday, was a sacred day called Armistice Day. When I was a boy, and when Dwayne Hoover was a boy, all the people of all the nations which had fought in the First World War were silent during the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of Armistice Day, which was the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

It was during that minute in nineteen hundred and eighteen, that millions upon millions of human beings stopped butchering one another. I have talked to old men who were on battlefields during that minute. They have told me in one way or another that the sudden silence was the Voice of God. So we still have among us some men who can remember when God spoke clearly to mankind.

Armistice Day has become Veterans' Day. Armistice Day was sacred. Veterans' Day is not.

So I will throw Veterans' Day over my shoulder. Armistice Day I will keep. I don't want to throw away any sacred things.

What else is sacred? Oh, Romeo and Juliet, for instance.

And all music is.
All music is sacred.

So it goes.

Things Only A Few Days Old That Did NOT Age Well

This, for instance:

 Or this:

Or this:

“We had Josh Shapiro putting out an ad on me, condemning me because I’m very Trump-like. Thank you very much for that ad. This is going to be a huge red wave in November,” Mastriano told Steve Bannon on his show on Monday.

As of this writing The NY Times has:

  • Shapiro: 2,958,399 (56.1%)
  • Mastriano: 2,220,692 (42.1%)

A difference of about seven hundred and thirty-seven thousand votes. This is with 95% of the votes in so expect the numbers to shift a little.

But still. That's a huge margin. 

When will failed GOP cand. Doug Mastriano concede?

November 9, 2022

Fetterman WINS! Shapiro WINS! (Oz Loses! MASTRIANO LOSES!!)

A Democratic win in The Senate:

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the unconventional, tattooed figure into whom Democrats poured their hopes of preserving their tenuous hold on the Senate, defeated Mehmet Oz to capture Pennsylvania’s Senate race on Tuesday, according to New York Times projections, flipping a seat that had been in Republican hands.

This had been Sen. Pat Toomey's seat. 

As of this writing (bet on this changing) the NYTimes has Fetterman up 2,587,382 (50.2%) to 2,441,145 (47.4%) votes. A difference of about 146,000. That's with 94% of the votes in. Expect the numbers to shift a bit.

Now let's look at the race that God himself involved himself in.

Back in April, before the primaries, St Sen (and now failed GOP cand. for PA Gov) said a few words at a QAnon rally called "Patriots Arise." And this is what he said. This is what Doug Mastriano said:

Well, something got in the Almighty's way yesterday:

Josh Shapiro, a Democrat and Pennsylvania’s attorney general, won the governor’s race in the state early Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. He defeated Doug Mastriano, a Republican who was central to efforts to overturn Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results.

This had been Gov. Tom Wolf's seat. 

As of this writing, the Times has Shapiro up 2,862,252 (55.5%) to 2,199,592 (42.7%) votes. All the caveats from above hold here. Expect these numbers to shift a tad (or a skosh, depending). It's a difference of about 662,000 votes with 93% of the votes in.

Of course election denier Doug is going this route:

Election denier and far-right state Sen. Doug Mastriano refused to concede the gubernatorial race in Pennsylvania late Tuesday, despite most major networks calling him the loser before midnight.

Pennsylvania’s Democratic Attorney General Josh Shapiro had a gargantuan lead of more than 11 points over Mastriano with about 80 percent of votes counted by midnight, according to the Associated Press. Most major outlets called the race for Shapiro, including AP, NBC News, Fox News and CNN.

But Mastriano wasn’t having it. “There’s about 30 percent of the votes still to go, we’ve got a ways to go,” he told supporters. “Have faith, we’re gonna, uh, of course, we’re gonna have faith and have patience. We’re gonna wait until every vote counts, right?”

I dunno. 600,000 votes is a yuge number to overcome with only 7% (or so) of the votes yet to be counted.

November 8, 2022


Vote as if your health depended on it.

Because it does.

Vote as if the health and safety of the women in your life depended on it.

Because it does.

Vote as if the freedoms our friends in the LGBT+ community depended on it.

Because it does.

Vote as if democracy and the rule of law depended on it.

Because it does.

What's At Stake. (Oz and Mastriano on Choice)

First, let's look at what our GOP friends want for our society.

Doug Mastriano:

Asked whether he believed in exceptions for rape or incest or to save the life of the mother, he replied during a primary debate, “I don’t give a way for exceptions.”

Dr Oz:

There should not be involvement from the federal government in how states decide their abortion decisions,” Oz said. “As a physician, I’ve been in the room when there’s some difficult conversations happening. I don’t want the federal government involved with that, at all.

I want women, doctors, local political leaders, letting the democracy that’s always allowed our nation to thrive to put the best ideas forward so states can decide for themselves.

That's what they want for Pennsylvania (and the nation).

Meanwhile, this is what's happening in the places lovingly emancipated by Roe v Wade:

The federal government has launched its first confirmed investigation of an alleged denial of an abortion to a woman experiencing a medical emergency.


The Missouri investigation involves the case of Mylissa Farmer, 41, who went to Freeman Hospital on Aug. 2, after her water broke nearly 18 weeks into her pregnancy, followed by bleeding and cramping. Physicians there reportedly recommended terminating the pregnancy because it was not viable, Farmer had lost amniotic fluid, and she faced a risk of serious infection. Her case is described in detail in an Oct. 19 article in the Springfield News-Leader, which Farmer, in a brief interview with KHN, said was accurate. Farmer confirmed she was contacted and questioned in October for the EMTALA investigation.

According to the newspaper article, Farmer’s physicians, after consulting with Freeman Hospital’s legal team, told her they could not offer her the standard procedure to terminate the pregnancy — dilation and evacuation — due to Missouri’s law banning all abortions, which took effect June 24.

According the Springfield News-Leader, Farmer made this assessment:

Farmer's options were limited in Missouri: "Sit and wait in the hospital for however long it took for her heartbeat to either stop, or for infection to set in or for me to bleed to death. We didn’t like those options."
This is cruel and the cruelty is the point.

Nationwide, this is what's going on:

Hamstrung physicians and limited access to reproductive and non-reproductive care stemming from states’ “broadly worded laws” were in the spotlight during a Tuesday House Subcommittee meeting polling medical experts and abortion advocates on the ramifications of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

The majority of witnesses called before the Democrat-led Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy characterized abortion as a private healthcare decision between a pregnant person and their provider.

Medical professionals who testified also corroborated media reports from the past month describing practitioners who were told by their organization’s lawyers to withhold certain procedures until a patient’s condition deteriorated to the point where their life was at risk.

“Physicians are struggling every day. These are not rare examples,” American Medical Association (AMA) President Jack Resneck, M.D., said during the meeting. “The lack of flexibility due to that government intrusion is very frightening.”

The party of limited government is doing this, doing this right now. This is what's at stake (among other things, of course) this election.

If it hasn't happened already it surely will. Some woman someplace will die because a hospital legal team under threat by that state's "pro-life" legislation interposed itself between that women and the medical staff trying to save her life. Thoughts and prayers.

If you're more concerned about inflation and vote republican, great. You just said you're willing to let a few women suffer and die just so you can put more gas in your car. 


The cruelty is the point.

And Now. A Word or Two From The White House


The New York Times has a transcript.

Some important points:

In this moment, we have to confront those lies with the truth. The very future of our nation depends on it. My fellow Americans, we’re facing a defining moment, an inflection point. We must with one overwhelming unified voice speak as a country and say there’s no place, no place for voter intimidation or political violence in America. Whether it’s directed at Democrats or Republicans. No place, period. No place ever.


We the people must decide whether we will have fair and free elections, and every vote counts. We the people must decide whether we’re going to sustain a republic, where reality’s accepted, the law is obeyed and your vote is truly sacred.

We the people must decide whether the rule of law will prevail or whether we will allow the dark forces and thirst for power put ahead of the principles that have long guided us.


Well, I think, first, we believe the vote in America’s sacred, to be honored, not denied; respected, not dismissed; counted, not ignored. A vote is not a partisan tool, to be counted when it helps your candidates and tossed aside when it doesn’t. Second, we must, with an overwhelming voice, stand against political violence and voter intimidation, period. Stand up and speak against it.
And so on.

No, They Haven't. (Mastriano Silent on Right Wing Political Violence)

This is an answer to yesterday's blog post.

As far as I can tell (with a search on each at google and twitter) neither St Sen Doug Mastriano or Rep Guy Reschenthaler have had the decency to denounce the hammer attack on Speaker Pelosi's husband Paul.

On the other hand, over at the Mastriano-controlled FB page Mastriano Memes, they're spreading the latest Pelosi attack conspiracy theory.

Why do I say that it's Mastriano-controlled?

This is why:

Republican Pennsylvania governor candidate Doug Mastriano’s official campaign Facebook account is also helping with another group on the social media site: a Facebook group which has for months featured a stream of xenophobic, transphobic, and antisemitic memes.

The campaign’s role in the public group—called “Mastriano Memes”—has not been previously reported, but Mastriano’s official Facebook account was still an active administrator for the page as of Monday evening.

So no movement on denouncing right wing political violence and no movement tamping down on the right wing that fueled that violence.

Got it. More info on who St Sen (and now GOP cand for PA Gov) Doug Mastriano really is.

November 1, 2022

Have They Denounced DePape Yet?

Hey, you remember Sean Parnell, right?

He was the leading GOP candidate for PA Senator until, well, you know.

You remember how he said, at one time, "If you don't denounce the mob, you embrace the mob."?

Keep that phrase in mind.

Let's now go look and see what David Wayne DePape told the SFPD:

DEPAPE stated that he was going to hold Nancy hostage and talk to her. If Nancy were to tell DEPAPE the truth, he would let her go, and if she lied, he was going to break her kneecaps. DEPAPE was certain that Nancy would not have told the truth. In the course of the interview, DEPAPE articulated he viewed Nancy as the leader of the pack of lies told by the Democratic Party. DEPAPE also later explained that by breaking Nancy's kneecaps, she would then have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other Members of Congress there were consequences to actions. (p. 6)

This was after being Mirandized, by the way.

So we're talking torture (what? no waterboarding?) and terrorism here aren't we? Not to mention kidnapping a high government official and all the rest.

When he broke in, he also had zip ties and rope with him.

He broke in, was going to restrain Paul Pelosi until The Speaker arrived and then torture her until she told him what he had already concluded was "the truth" in order to show the rest of the Democrats that there are consequences to actions.

Then there's this from the LA Times:

In the months before police accused him of attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Friday morning, David DePape had been drifting further into the world of far-right conspiracies, antisemitism and hate, according to a Times review of his online accounts.

QAnon, Pizzagate, Jeffrey Epstein, the gamut of right wing conspiracies. 

And of course this stuff:

DePape posted videos to Facebook by MyPillow Chief Executive Mike Lindell saying that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, according to reports.

He also linked to sites with claims about the deadliness of COVID-19 vaccines.

“The death rates being promoted are what ever ‘THEY’ want to be promoted as the death rate,” one post read.

All that disinformation/misinformation fueled DePape to swing that hammer at Paul Pelosi's head.

Have any of my local right wing friends denounced this violence yet? 

  • St. Sen Doug Mastriano?
  • Rep Guy Reschenthaler?
  • Wendy Bell?
  • Wendy's assistant Brock Schneider?

I haven't found anything yet. 

NOTE: That does not mean none of the above have denounced it only that I haven't seen any evidence of it yet. 

If I find any, I will be happy to post, say, Doug Mastriano's denouncement of the attack on Paul Pelosi. If he were to, I'd be curious to see him deal with DePape's embracing of some of the same right wing conspiracies Doug pushes. Same thing with Guy or Wendy/Brock.

Because remember, if you haven't denounced something, you've endorsed it.
