Split in the Republican Party

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin sets forth an important principle: “There is no forgiveness without truth, no ‘unity’ without justice.”  She has pointed out that the split in the Republican Party is so profound that there no longer is a Republican Party. There are Trump Party adherents and a non-Trump Republican Party. 

The former, comprising those who believe or cynically profess to believe Trump’s big lie that he won the election and won it in a landslide, have helped construct or have adopted a false alternative reality as a political tool to retain or gain power. Honorable Republicans should mount primary campaigns against those among them who hold elective office. They should be shunned, and their lies should be discredited as fast as they are produced.
