Left Proposes “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to Target Trump Supporters if Biden Wins
“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.”
Members of the professional left are now proposing a ‘truth and reconciliation commission’ to shame Trump supporters if Joe Biden wins.
These would be the same people who have spent four years calling Trump an authoritarian, a dictator, a fascist, a cult leader, and worse. Those same people are now proposing Orwellian forms of public shaming for having the ‘wrong’ views.
This is Robert Reich, who served as an advisor to President Obama and was part of President Clinton’s administration:
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.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes said something similar earlier this month:
The most humane and reasonable way to deal with all these people, if we survive this, is some kind of truth and reconciliation commission. https://t.co/PopsRhmKvz

The Washington Post’s resident lunatic Jennifer Rubin is fully on board:
Trump’s enablers can’t escape the consequences of their choices
Assuming President Trump loses his reelection bid in a few weeks, the soon-to-be alumni of the Trump administration, who were warned that association with Trump would mar their careers and corrode their character, are now “hoping the Trump presidency isn’t a disqualifying blemish on their resumes or Google footprint as the door revolves the other way and they seek to land, once again, in the private sector,” The Post reports.
They should think more about atoning for the betrayal of their country than trying to escape the consequences of enabling a liar, racist and wannabe authoritarian. There are practical reasons for employers outside the right-wing bubble to reject not only those who were the face of the administration but also those who labored behind the scenes….
We as a country and as individuals need to decide whether those who are unremorseful, who seek no forgiveness and who admit no complicity in an administration that engaged in reprehensible conduct deserve to be welcomed back into “polite” society. It seems like another moral failing on the part of Trumpers that they whine about the stigma of their tenure without shouldering any responsibility to come clean and make amends.
Note Rubin’s use of the word “atoning” here. The clear implication is that people who supported or worked with Trump have sinned against society. Perhaps requiring the wearing of a scarlet letter of some kind would do the trick.
Make no mistake about what is being suggested. These people are talking about a vindictive form of retaliation for wrongthink.
Tucker Carlson highlighted this on his show last night and included a segment from MSNBC where the subject is discussed. He then brought on author J.D. Vance to expand on the topic. Watch it all below:
I have a simple question for the likes of Robert Reich and Jennifer Rubin. What should Trump supporters prepare to do in the event that we win?

Proposed by robert REICH. You can’t Mike this stuff up…
*make* not Mike.
The sound of it works if you have a Cockney accent…
I laughed Grizzly (upvoted your comment, not sure who would downvote that).
I read it that way.
He just got the name wrong. In France they called it the Committee of Public Safety. Good times ahead (no pun intended with “head” but I guess it could be)
Robert “Third Reich”
All Leftists including Reich should test it first – oh for about 25 years first before anyone else.
Oh and submit Google and all Deep State Big Tech first too.

Trump Tweets Video Of 60-Minutes Anchor Lesley Stahl Not Wearing A Mask After Interview…
The media is calling the video an anti-mask message.
Sort of, but their official explanation is: It’s really about the Ruling Class’ rules for thee, not for me stance, with masks being just one part of their aristocratic privileges:

“Leftwing Fascists Target Chris Pratt for Destruction for Merely Declining to Attend Biden/Harris Fundraiser
He didn’t want to attend “The Avengers Fundraiser.”
I don’t want to attend any other Avengers Fundraisers, aka Disney movies, myself.
America’s blacklisters ganged up on Chris Pratt over the weekend because he declined to join an Avengers fundraiser for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Actually, there are two things Pratt was attacked for: Not attending the Biden fundraiser and being a Christian…..
Guys, this has been happening for a year. And the government forced us to add our names to the list via campaign finance laws.
Let me get this straight. Once they are elected (G-d forbid) they want to make sure Trump supporters’atone’ for supporting him. And they call their fundraising events ‘Avenger’ events?
Does anyone else see the irony in that?
I’m sorry, that’s ominous. From what I see they are planning no truth and not much reconciliation.
These people need just one thing: bullets between their eyes.
TDS is a disease. Bullets may be the only cure.
I’m ready to deliver those bullets.
Arm up, stock up (with everything you can think of), and hope it’s not too late. Better to have what you might not immediately need than to wish you had what you actually need immediately.
Oh my, off to Room 101 you go!
This is clearly Stalinist. And unacceptable. We have NOTHING to be ashamed of.
Careful about what you wish for, Democrat nomenklatura…
I’m thinking Mao Pantsuit wearing Hillary-Obama.
What should Trump supporters prepare to do in the event that we win?
We can finally use those Obama FEMA camps for something …
Or we could have that truth and reconciliation commission before we close down CNN and MSNBC
I think the 48,000+ likes for his Tweet is quite disturbing….
I’m sure Twitter padded that number just a bit.
They cannot be serious. What’s that you say, they ARE? These people should be disqualified from participating in the American experiment. This has to be the most unAmerican idea I have ever heard. And they have the gall to call us unAmerican.
Read “Isaac’s Army” about WWII Jewish rebellion in the Warsaw ghetto. There is a prescient line in there about how prior to war, one of the main characters had long dismissed Adolph Hitler’s rants as the ravings of some mad dog and that none of what he was saying could come to be, because it was just that insane.
We are there again folks… whether you recognize it or not, this is what war looks like.
The Democratic party has long been the master of propaganda. It has always been the party of totalitarian social control. But, it has presented itself as the guardian of people’s rights against the onslaughts of the Republican party. The Republicans, traditionally, have always been the party of freedom. Unfortunately, they have always had rotten communication skills. And, when the leadership of the Party became totally controlled by the Establishment, the GOP simply ceased any meaningful attempts to stop the Democrat agenda. So, the fact that Dems favor government thought police should not come as a shock.
The Dems are currently following the same playbook used by totalitarians throughout history. People had better wake up.
Hillary had this planned for the deplorables
Her entire life has been about revenge
Leftism is about revenge, and has been since the French Reign of Terror.
Be careful what you ask for.
Will this sound like a good idea when conservatives again gain control of the federal government?
It is becoming more and more obvious that the Democrats are planning on taking over permanently.
There goes 2020 acting up again. Scott Adams says it is a simulation.. he’s joking,, but it has been a weird year.
I know what you mean by “weird” … have had many discussions with my wife about all the craziness.
Without going into detail, in my 1st marriage I was a battered husband. What was so difficult in escaping that situation, is the undying human hope that “was the last time” or the willful blindness on my part that “it was just once” and focusing not on habitual abuse, but rather the detail that made every act of abuse unique such that I could say “it was just one time”. It was in counseling that my coach asked me as many times as I responded to her with “that’s once” – if I’d ever though of counting to “two” … and I had to admit I was afraid to count multiple instances of it because I’d have to take action. There’d be a tremendous fallout with my children, my home, etc.
Being sober about 2020, I don’t want to get sucked into that trap again of just writing it all off as “weird” or an “aberration”. 2020 has been a year of abuse at the hands of those we trusted to govern us with benevolence. The lust for power of our ‘overlords’ has shown us in 2020 exactly what the abusive bastards think of us.
2020 has been a year of eye-opening revelation about whose who. I’m hopeful 2021 will be a year of expelling them from positions of power and exiling them somewhere they can never abuse us again.
I’m all for calling 2020 “evil”, not weird. Though still I understand why I’ve called it weird – it’s just easier to take that way.
Definitely “weird,” but do not think for a moment that this is pure happenstance. There is no such thing as coincidence.
The left would be at the front of the line for a board like this. They lie and divide.
Where was one of these when President Trump won? The left went, and remains, berserk.
How about we just call a spade a spade and give it an appropriate name: The Revenge Council.
This is about reeducation camps, plain and simple.
Retributive change. They’re Pro-Choice. They do avoidance, cancellation, not reconciliation.
Will the commission Antifa/BLM to go door to door and ask you a series of questions to determine your loyalty to the new Administration? Will Twitter/Facebook release all your pro-Trump posts to this new Commission? Will we get a chance to “recant” our support for Trump or just be canceled?
They’ll have to find me first.
I’ll participate in the commission as soon as I complete my white privilege deconstruction training.
Go ahead and try it. That’ll be fun.
Non, je ne regrette rien!
Here is a SJW model for reconciliation:
“Daniel Ortega’s government of “reconciliation and national unity” has killed more than 300 people, injured thousands and abducted and disappeared hundreds more. Sandinista “death caravans” of hooded police and government paramilitaries raid towns like hordes of invading Huns, firing battlefield weapons at unarmed protesters, dragging people from their homes, torching buildings and leaving dead bodies in the street.”
What’s the point of having freedom of speech if half of us use it to disagree with those who are right?
……At least that sentence parses despite the ridiculous logic.
That “is” the point of freedom of speech. Everything in the 1st Amendment boils down to an unwritten “right to be wrong”.
And who decides the rightness, anyway?
No one has the right to NOT be offended. What would be the point of speaking if everyone agreed on everything?
No, no, Phil. You got it wrong. There IS a right not to be offended. It’s just that you and I don’t have it.
Who plays the part of of Winnie Mandela? Michelle, Hillary, Kamala…?
Tar and feathers may not be enough for these people. Not even if you throw in riding them put of town on a rail will be enough. We The People may have to take far more drastic measures. I add the last with great hesitation. The time is nigh wherein we may have to start watering the Tree of Liberty. U hope not but our elites are failing us in an ever steepening incline.
You mean the party who used the CIA to spy on an incoming administration, who BOUGHT dirt from supposed Russian spies, who happily lied about Russian election collusion for four years, who impeached Trump for a phone call that asked the Ukranians to investigate what we now know was corruption right up to the top of the Democrat ticket, that group of swamp creatures has the blithering GALL to demand that Trump and his supporters be dragged into a modern day auto-da-fé and forced to beg for *their* nonexistent forgiveness?
There is only one appropriate response from any Trump supporter. It is only two words long. The first word is a profanity. The second word is ‘You’
Conveniently, policy-Hillary has a plan on the shelf, just waiting to be dusted off n run — remember her reeducation camps by another name?
Just like Obamacare, the old, rejected plan is just sitting there waiting to be weaseled in some other way.
“Representitive” government, just don’t ask who it represents.
Does my memory deceive me, or were they saying the same things toward the end of the George W. Bush administration?
It seems as if in their view, anyone who isn’t a Communist or at least an America-hater is a mortal enemy to be destroyed.
These folks have no interest in reconciliation.
And their sole interest in the truth is obliterating it.
the hubris of these bastards is simply breathtaking–THEY propose to be the arbiters or our ” remorse ” or the extent or method of our ” contrition? ”
would predict that if they actually try something like they’re proposing a great many of them are going to end up dead
so be it
What did people expect from leftists? They’ve repeatedly told us that they consider us not just wrong politically but also deplorable, bigoted, racist, irredeemable, uneducated, and evil. By demonizing opponents, any action taken against them can be justified. It started when leftists declared speech they don’t like as violence, which justified physically attacking speakers as well as prohibiting speech. Truth and reconciliation committees are the natural progression. Gulags are next. Think that’s extreme? “Hate crimes” bring the perpetrator greater penalties, and only one race can commit them.
It’s unsurprising that the vicious, infantile, spite-filled, vile, totalitarian and narcissistic Dhimmi-crats lack the requisite self-awareness, and, the historical perspective, to see how evil their self-congratulatory machinations appear, to rational, sane and morally upright people.
Folks, POTUS is going to win this thing, rather easily, in my opinion.
So, the real questions are:
1) What lawless subversion and sabotage will the Dhimmi-crats’ connive and conjure up, to attempt to undo POTUS’s victory?
2) What level of violence and destruction will the Dhimmi-crats’ goose-stepping jackboots engage in, after POTUS is re-elected?
Things could get very ugly, indeed. Prepare yourselves.
The sad fact is, no matter who wins this election, it’s going to hit the fan. Prepare yourselves indeed.
Given Reich’s, uh, “stature” it’s more like Third-and-a-half Reich
I understand what you’re saying, but, I think the distinction lies in the fact that in the event that dim-witted, corrupt, mendacious, dotard-marionette, Biden, wins, conservatives will not be assaulting and murdering Biden supporters, nor will they be burning businesses and cities.
This comment is in response to Mr. Bowman, above.
Possibly you misunderstood. No matter who wins, the left is going to become even more violent.
They are sore losers and even sorer winners.
Hey, I”ve been wanting to round up leftist as well and send them to open air concentration camps along with all that diversity they love so much except in their neighborhoods.
What would Herr Reich do with the blacks and other minorities who voted for Trump? I guess he is a racist who hate minorities.
My response to Robert Reich:
“Given that you’re 74, 4′ 11”, have no firearms or military experience, and couldn’t fight your way out of a wet paper bag, my two cordial pieces of advice to you are 1) sit back down on your booster seat and 2) STFU if you know what’s good for you.
So as in the last election…..they will try to deal with approximately 64 million voters who supported Trump?
Good luck. At that point any reluctance to defend yourself is gone.
As an alternative to a truth and reconciliation commission, may I suggest we provide them with a free helping of Jim Jones Kool Aid. I believe it would solve both of our problems.
