Kellyanne Conway Issues A Dark, Fascistic Warning To Harry Reid

This is how it begins. Using levers of power to silence political opposition

On Fox News Sunday, Kellyanne Conway hinted at legal consequences for Harry Reid after he released his statement last week calling Trump what he is. In case you missed it, here's part of what Reid wrote:

“If this is going to be a time of healing, we must first put the responsibility for healing where it belongs: at the feet of Donald Trump, a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate. Winning the electoral college does not absolve Trump of the grave sins he committed against millions of Americans. Donald Trump may not possess the capacity to assuage those fears, but he owes it to this nation to try.

“If Trump wants to roll back the tide of hate he unleashed, he has a tremendous amount of work to do and he must begin immediately.”

Advice not taken, as Conway warned this morning on Fox News Sunday that Reid's comments were "beyond the pale" and suggested he be careful "in the legal sense."

If you look back to Germany in the 1930s or even Turkey in the last 18 months, you'll see similar efforts to silence the opposition, even when they speak truth. Hush! they say, or else we'll jail you, or harangue you, or kill you.

We are about to hand a fascist the levers of enormous power. His right-hand person is now threatening a sitting Senator who spoke nothing but the truth.

Now is a time for courage and resolve. No more depression. Hold your anger and your fear in check and let's organize before we become a nuclear power in the hands of a fascist.

Senator Chris Murphy is right:
