Sarah Huckabee Sanders Running for Governor of Arkansas

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    A good exhibit in how the Flight 93 type discourse of violence has become the new normal for Republicans at all levels.

    From her announcement: “Everything we love about America is at stake. And with the radical left now in control of Washington, your governor is your last line of defense.

    In Huckabee’s view, we Democrats are not fellow Americans, but enemies to be destroyed. Our policies are not just unwise, or will lead to bad outcomes, but literally will destroy America and everything they love about it.
    In previous years someone could laugh this off as wildly exaggerated but empty rhetoric.
    But coming on the heels of an insurrection in which the heads of Congress were attacked by a murderous Republican mob, its hard to see her words as anything but endorsement of political violence.Report
