The Republican Party Gilded & Framed

By Charlotte Robinson, February 15, 2021

As we enter into the next chapter of American history after the minority voted 57 senators to convict former president Donald J. Trump to 43 votes to shamelessly acquit we will now watch & witness a modern day remake of Oscar Wilde’s "The Picture of Dorian Gray". In Wilde’s philosophical novel Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul to ensure that the picture rather than he will age & fade. So let’s place this gold-framed portrait in the attic of moral conscience & watch what happens to people who stand firmly on the wrong side of history. Already the GOP is slowly facing the dilemma that their party has been infiltrated by Trump’s band of followers filled with extremist rightwing, violent, domestic terrorists who carried out the deadly siege on January 6th at the U.S. Capitol. Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President & CEO stated, “The verdict does not reflect the truth understood by a majority of Americans, that Donald Trump recklessly & maliciously directed his supporters to attack the Capitol & our democracy. The Trump administration will forever be defined by misinformation & violence, tactics the former president weaponized against LGBTQ people & other vulnerable communities before turning them loose on our government on January 6th. Senators voting to acquit are now & for all of history recorded for their cowardice in failing to hold the former president accountable for his lawless, destructive behavior. Let this be a turning point for our country, where we demand a return to shared core values of truth, safety & integrity to protect the least among us, especially from those chosen to lead us.”
