Sometimes it’s in moments of triumph that a person’s real character is revealed. For some Democrats in the US, vengeance is always the first item on the agenda. McCarthyism had nothing on these people and their new definition of un-American activities.

First up, of course, was Democratic Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of a host of well-heeled political operatives who’ve styled themselves the ‘resistance’ under Donald Trump’s administration, as if they were plucky heroes hiding in ditches in France circa 1941, instead of powerful media darlings who’ve been wailing for four years solid because they lost an election.

Ocasio-Cortez called for an archive of Trump supporters who might try to “deny their complicity” in the future.

Trump is polling at 71 million votes so far, so that archive might take a while. Why anyone in a democracy or a free country should ever feel the need to hide their voting choice is a question that only intolerant liberals can answer.

In case anyone was unclear about the intentions of these archives, Washington Post writer, Jennifer Rubin spelled out what she had in mind.

Anyone with an opinion she didn’t like on the election should “never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into “polite” society,” she wrote.

“Never.” What a spiteful, petulant twat. The gulags were full because of this kind of nasty vindictiveness.

“We have a list,” she warned. She’s checking it twice, and she’s not prepared to be one bit nice, because (checks notes) you might have been monstrous enough to support someone who won the last election in a free and fair vote.

Former CIA ops officer Evan McMullin, chimed in support of the idea.

“We should keep and publish a list of everyone who assists Trump’s frivolous and dangerous attacks on the election. Name and shame forever,” he tweeted. No free speech then in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

What a hero. So #stunning and #brave.

A former staffer of Barack Obama’s, Michael Simons linked people to something called the Trump Accountability project which was going to ‘hold Trump supporters accountable’ and seemed to be supported by lots of Democrat staffers.

 

One lawyer had a closer look at the site and saw that the platform had already made a list which included donors and even judges.

 

After she started tweeting about it, the Trump Accountability project made the lists private.

Naturally, there was considerable blowback to these threats, with more than one commentator reminding the supposed liberals that a hallmark of authoritarian regimes from both left and right was the compilation of political hit-lists of people to punish and cast out.

Matt Walsh, however, laughed off the notion of the Democrat ‘enemies’ list.

All this ‘lists of enemies’ stuff and sheer vindictiveness seemed to be at odds with the Great Healing that Joe Biden has been talking about.  “Let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric — to lower the temperature, to see each other again, to listen to each other again. To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy,” he said.

He might have a word with the Red Guard in his own party, unless all the peace and harmony stuff is strictly for the cameras.
