Congress acquits Trump

Looks like the Democrats have been defeated in their latest attempt to demonize Donald Trump, even after he was fraudulently ousted from reelection (which is obviously the bad part in the past few months), as Trump and his lawyers have emerged victorious against cancel culture in Congress:
Free speech won an important victory Saturday, when the Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump of incitement.

Trump’s lawyers defended the principle that the First Amendment applies everywhere, including Congress, contrary to what lead House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) argued. Moreover, they defeated what Trump defense attorney Michael van der Veen mocked as the “Raskin Doctrine”: the idea that only Democrats are entitled to free speech.

Van der Veen — a street-smart Philadelphia lawyer, the perfect contrast to Raskin’s academic legal pretensions — called the Democrats’ argument “constitutional cancel culture.”

What Raskin and his team were trying to do was to say that political speech with provocative words like “fight” was perfectly acceptable if Democrats used it — even in the context of violent nationwide riots — but that every statement, every tweet, by Trump and his supporters was presumed to be inflammatory.

Van der Veen and his colleagues, David Schoen and Bruce Castor, showed the hypocrisy of Raskin’s position when they showed a lengthy highlight reel of Democrats — including many of the Senators sitting in the chamber — using the word “fight,” and the phrase “fight like hell,” to which Raskin and the Article of Impeachment team had ascribed particular significance.
The AP Wire (via Palmieri Report) says that Trump looks to be reemerging after his aquittal. He should now set about to pointing out the sad cancel that's struck the USA in the form of totalitarian leftism, cancel culture, social justice propaganda and blacklisting. All this ideology-driven policy today is something that has to stop.
