Biden Victory -> Civil War

 From Instapundit, quoting Epoch Times:

I volunteer to be the first guinea pig for Robert Reich’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission during the period after the election in which he assumes a Biden victory.

I assume Mr. Reich would concur some degree of testing and experimentation must be done to make his plan effective and, while taking nowhere near the bravery of being, say, a first COVID vaccine tester, someone has to do it.

I have several reasons I think I would be ideal for this task that I will get to in a minute, but first, for those who don’t know or those whose memory is sketchy—it’s already more than a week since Reich made his proposal—the former Clinton Labor Secretary wrote the following on Twitter, Oct. 17:

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.”

Reich uses post-apartheid South Africa as a model for his proposal—a country that continues to have more than its share of civic disruption, poverty, and violence—but no matter. There are others.

I rather doubt it will be as non-violent as South Africa's Commission.  And four years of Trump were equivalent to half a century of apartheid?  I hope you have plenty of ammo.  The TDS rage is incomprehensible.


  1. Bill Kristol: "How about truth and no reconciliation?"

  2. I will not walk onto the rail car.

  3. Will Biden be subject to this Truth and Reconciliation Commission?

    Nah... who am I kidding!

  4. A "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" was one of the noble ideas that South Africa instituted after the election of Nelson Mandela and the ascension of his ANC-dominated government. If you wanted a pardon, you had to say what you did. This would be a good thing because it would clear the air about what the deep state actors did and what crimes were committed. Something for everyone. The world would know who did what, and the criminals who believed their actions would be without consequence because they would enable the defeat of this danger to the status quo graft and corruption.
