Joe Biden said all of the right things on the campaign trail. He told us he’d be a president for “all Americans”, not just the ones who voted for him. He called for “unity” and “healing” on so many occasions that we thought his speeches were skipping records. He told us that the nation was ready to move on and get back to normal.
Unfortunately, there are still a large number of Democrats and other assorted liberals out there who want no part of this kinder, gentler America, and are seeking revenge against the Republican Party.
This has been particularly obvious in Hollywood, where actors and directors and assorted other celebrities are spewing a great deal of anti-GOP rhetoric.
The “One Tree Hill” actress has been outspoken on social media throughout the campaign and the subsequent riots at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6. She’s referred to people who supported Donald Trump at the riots as cult members and has called on the president to be convicted of crimes.
On Monday, she agreed with a tweet posted by California Congresswoman Jackie Speier calling for Republicans to be labeled as “the terrorist right” following what happened after the election leading up to and through Jan. 6, where five people died after breaching the security at the U.S. Capitol while the Senate was meeting to certify the electoral college votes.
“The Republicans have been calling Democrats the radical left. Time to call Republicans the terrorist right?” Speier wrote.
“It’s been time,” the actress commented.
The commentary comes on the heels of similarly hyperbolic statements by legendary Hollywood direct Rob Reiner, who has had a particularly angsty take on Donald Trump’s last days in office.
