Despite a multitude of facts that disprove theories regarding a stolen 2020 presidential election, a fascist coup led by medical scientists, and the illegal “silencing” of right-wingers by mainstream media as explained daily on Fox News, the “facts don’t care about your feelings” crowd feels that the facts are oppressing them. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) pointed out the irony of his own party spouting a victim narrative and leading their followers far, far away from the facts.
It’s amazing how “feelings-ey” the GOP has become. Just a few years ago we derided victim culture, now we traffic in it. Wanna be seen as tough? Just complain about how powerless you are to everything. Might even get you elected. Bizzaroworld.

If top GOP leaders won’t tell the truth, aggressively, it’s not a surprise that 70 percent of Republicans believe the lies and conspiracies. This is unacceptable. https://t.co/bPa2k536mB

Despite claims made recently by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), and the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice, the 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Democrats, “never Trumper” Republicans, vote tabulating machines, the Italian government, a dead Cuban president, and Chinese thermostats did not alter any election results and Joe Biden was elected the 46th president of the United States by both the electoral college and popular votes.
No matter how disappointed Trump and his supporters may feel, facts don’t care about their feelings. They used to love saying that to Democrats to dismiss things that weren’t really feelings, things like racism and sexism, but it’s their loose relationship with facts that’s the real problem.
Rep. Kinzinger, along with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), has led the charge to convince his party, 70 percent of whom fully believe that the election was stolen from their presidential pick, to stop making up their own “facts” and accept that they backed a loser who the majority of sane people knew was dangerous for the country.
Despite his good intentions on this particular subject, however, voters want to know why his “common sense” and “fair elections” sentiments don’t extend to the voting rights act that’s been proposed to block all of the voter restriction bills being passed by red states based on assumptions that the 2020 election was stolen.
