To Democrats, this election is about more than simply retaking the White House and punching the ball into the end zone for the corrupt establishment, it is about payback.
The angry left has made it clear that they plan to exact a terrible punishment on their enemies including President Trump, his family, administration, conservative media figures, and even millions of ordinary Americans exercising their right to participate in the political process.
Now with only two weeks to go until the election, an influential former Clinton regime official is calling for tribunals of the type that were commonly seen in the old Soviet Union when Joseph Stalin ran the show and ruthlessly punished his political enemies.
Robert Reich who was Bill Clinton’s labor secretary and who serves as a regular on the anti-Trump media including CNN has called for the creation of what he calls a “truth and reconciliation” commission to engage in persecutions of Trump supporters.
According to Reich:
“When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”
When the extremism of his tweet drew horrified criticism, Reich tweeted out a picture of former South African president Nelson Mandela, a man who has been lionized despite his refusal to condemn the brutal practice of “necklacing” that was endorsed by his wife while he was in prison.
