Michigan GOP’s Extremism Has No End, And Dems Must Boycott Bibi Speech

Here’s episode 89 of Michigan’s premier progressive podcast.

Happy Conviction Week!

Michigan Republicans continue having a collective meltdown after their Dear Leader was found guilty of committing 34 felonies in New York. Republicans call the trial a “sham,” and “un-American,” as they keep degrading our judicial system. Pat shares the unhinged statements from many Michigan Republicans in both Congress and the state legislature after the verdict. This is part of a pattern by Michigan Republicans to destroy the institutions of our democratic republic. And he calls-out some of these state Republicans, including Congresspeople Jack Bergman, Tim Walberg, and Lisa McClain for putting their party, and Trump, above country. 

Democrats had better quickly come to that conclusion, or else they’ll find these Christian Nationalists in charge of our national and state governments. 

In the “Last Call,” Pat asks congressional Democrats to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress on June 13th. Netanyahu’s not only been charged for war crimes over Israel’s war in Gaza, but he’s been disastrously wrong repeatedly, costing the United States in lives and treasure. No Michigan Democrat should attend this propaganda stunt.
