Republican Party Chair Appears to Threaten Americans Who Don't Support Trump in Authoritarian Tweet

A little threat from Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel to the American people:


This does not read as “they’ll look back and think ‘darn, I sure was young and stupid and I wish I’d seen the light earlier.” No, this is more like “you’ll be sorry because we’ll make you sorry.” Right in line with Donald Trump’s embrace of every authoritarian he comes across.

One thing McDaniel has right: complacency is our enemy. Like if we think the Trump administration will just stop ripping children from their parents’ arms without massive, unrelenting pressure, rather than going on to something worse because hey, who’s going to stop them, that would be dangerous complacency.
