The incivility that has erupted within the Republican Party continues to turn ever more vile and vicious, as the vitriol increases equally in both hyperbole and alarm.
Much of this split has been drawn down the lines of President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, with the GOP establishment largely siding with the Associated Press and the electoral college, and recognizing Joe Biden as President-elect.
But then there is the MAGA wing of the party, the Trump loyalists, who have turned bitter as the President and his legal team continue to insist that the contest was stolen from the Commander in Chief via “widespread voter fraud” and electronic manipulation.
The state of Georgia has now become the focus of the American political machine as two runoff races are poised to decide the balance of the Senate on January 5th.
The more radical parts of the MAGA movement are concerned that high-ranking members of the GA GOP haven’t done enough to promote Trump’s claims. Pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood has recently suggested that Republican voters in the Peach State should boycott the Senate runoff race to send a message about this lack of support for POTUS.
Wood is taking his narrative even further now, and suggesting that the Georgia Governor, as well as both of the Republican Senate candidates, should be arrested.
Wood, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, tweeted a poster which read: ‘The Georgia election fraud committed by anti-Trump RINOs Brian Kemp, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue against President Trump and Doug Collins was accomplished using the Dominion Voting Systems Algorithm.
‘The algorithm was never designed for unheard-of levels of GOP non-participation. The algorithm will steal votes from the GOP, but there will be so few in heavily Democratic precincts that GOP vote totals will go negative.’
‘The fraud will be so obvious, SCOTUS can then invalidate the presidential election. Real conservative senators can then be appointed, after Kemp, Perdue and Loeffler’s arrest,’ the poster adds.
Wood has been an increasingly controversial figure in the electoral orbit in Georgia, and there are a fair number of criticisms being leveled at him on social media of late.
