The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of

Are these two just jerking each other off to dreams of revolution? Or should we pay attention?

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Thursday talked with conservative broadcaster Steve Bannon about a plan to use “4,000 shock troops” to take over the jobs of federal government employees.

“Understand, this is a theory of governing,” Bannon agreed. “It’s fresh and it’s new. This is Trumpism in power. That’s when we went to the 4,000 shock troops we have to have that’s going to man the government. Get them ready now. Right? We’re going to hit the beach with the landing teams and the beachhead teams and all that nomenclature they use when President Trump wins in 2024 — or before.”

“You’re going to have those as the 4,000 political appointees,” he continued. “No more powderpuff derby. This is going to be hardcore accountability at every committee [in Congress].”

Yes,” Gaetz replied. “And we’re going to go after this administrative state and we’re going to start at the Department of Justice and the FBI. That’s the job I want. You know, send me over to the Judiciary Committee and their sphincters will tighten because they have been doing a lot of corrupt things over there.”

I ain’t scared yet, but too many members of the Republican Party are flirting dangerously with ideas of destruction and mayhem that will fundamentally transform America. The status quo may be boring, but that’s no reason to tear the state down.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
