The Georgia GOP adopted a resolution Wednesday opposing the impeachment of former President Donald Trump, and noting the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party.
“NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Georgia Republican Party, deploring senseless violence and destruction of all kinds, urges the United States Senate to end the impeachment proceeding as a provocative, unenforceable, and hypocritical miscarriage of justice,” a press release said.
Vikki Consiglio, Brant Frost, Carolyn Fisher, Cathy Latham, Ginger Howard, Darrell Galloway, BJ Van Gundy, members of the Georgia GOP leadership, made the resolution, along with unnamed “others,” according to the release.
The resolution centered mostly around the hypocrisy of the members of the Democratic Party, many of whom, according to the Georgia GOP, have supported activities not dissimilar to those that occurred at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. on January 6.
It alleged that “now Vice President and then-Senator Kamala Harris, Congressman Ilhan Omar, Congressman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Congressman Maxine Waters and others encouraged the protests of 2020 which included attacks on federal courthouses, ‘interfered’ with the ‘solemn duties’ of government officials, ‘obstructed and subverted’ government operations and resulted in the ‘injury and death of law enforcement personnel’ and others,” and that those members of the House of Representatives and Senate should also face impeachment if they are held to the same standard as Trump.
The resolution also noted that “Harris solicited funds for the Minnesota Freedom Fund which bailed out rioters and others arrested in the commission of ‘violent, deadly and destructive acts’ with the ‘foreseeable’ effect that the ‘lawlessness’ and resulting death, injury and destruction would continue.”
Last summer, American cities were gripped by far-left riots, led by groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, who looted, burned, and otherwise trashed locales across the country.
The resolution also said that “Americans cannot allow violence and destruction to be normalized as methods of protest,” and noted that Trump “consistently urged the 2021 Capitol protest to be peaceful,” while decrying those who committed acts of violence.
