While presumptive president-elect Joe Biden was telling his supporters to love his opponents, Democrats and national media figures were doing the exact opposite.
"It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again," Biden said. "And to make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies. They are Americans. They are Americans."
That very day CNN anchor Jake Tapper referred to the president's adult children as "spawn," making one wonder if he’ll call Hunter, Joe Biden’s "spawn," or called Maria and Sasha Barack Obama’s "spawn."
But that was the least of it.
Avowed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., implied that someone should begin compiling a list of Trump supporters.
"Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?" the New York Democrat asked.
"I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future."
Former Republican Evan McMullin, director of Stand Up Republic, came right out and suggested that the names of Trump supporters should be placed on a list.
"We should keep and publish a list of everyone who assists Trump’s frivolous and dangerous attacks on the election," he said. "Name and shame forever."
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, who until recently claimed to be a conservative Republican, said that lists of the president’s supporters have already been drawn up.
"Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into 'polite' society," she tweeted. "We have a list."
"We have a list"? Seriously?
Prior to the election, she said the party to which she once claimed membership has to be destroyed and its members shunned and shamed.
"What we should be doing is shunning these people — shunning and shaming them," Rubin said last year. "We have to . . . burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them. Because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again."
Enter the Trump Accountability Project, ready to do their bidding.
"Remember what they did," its Website states.
"We must never forget those who furthered the Trump agenda."
And they clearly identify who they’re after.
"Those who elected him," Those who staffed his government," and "Those who funded him."
Emily Abrams, former Pete Buttigieg staffer and project co-founder, announced the organization’s creation and purpose.
"We’re launching the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did," she tweeted.
"For what they did"?!
Does she mean record low unemployment, record high income among all levels, peace in the Mideast, end of foreign wars and decimation of the Islamic State?
"Join us and help spread the word," Abrams added, and then she suddenly became shy. She deleted her tweet and made her account private, so that only the people she approved of could read her tweets.
Former Democratic National Committee press secretary Hari Sevugan is another project co-founder, and believed that their first target should be outgoing White House staffers.
"@kaitlancollins just reported WH staff are starting to look for jobs," he tweeted. "Employers considering them should know there are consequences for hiring anyone who helped Trump attack American values. Find out how at the Trump Accountability Project."
Former Fox News associate producer and writer Kyle Becker couldn’t help but compare the Trump Accountability project to something coming out of the Third Reich.
"Congratulations, America!" he said.
"You are on the verge of putting people into power that want to scapegoat & blacklist Trump supporters for opposing their authoritarian globalist agenda. If you're a Democrat, pat yourself on the back for enabling actual fascism."
On election night, we went to sleep in the United States of America and woke up in a banana republic.
Saturday night we went to sleep in a banana republic and, woke up Sunday in North Korea.
If leftists have their way, conservatives may have to display their unfavored status, like many did in Germany, during the Third Reich.
Conservative actor James Woods called it more than four years ago when he said, "Scratch a liberal, and find a fascist every time . . . "
