Is Impeachment a Remedy to Hate?

Thom plus logo Since Trump took office, we have seen several white supremacist, Fox news watching, Donald Trump cult following "very fine people" try to send pipe bombs to the entire leadership of the Democratic Party, murder a young woman in Charlottesville, show up at Hillary Clinton's house to try to arrest her, make death threats against black and Muslim members of Congress. His supporters have murdered multiple people across America already.

And now Trump supporter Franklin Graham is going after Pete Buttigieg for being gay. Counties that hosted Trump campaign rallies have seen a 226% increase in hate crimes immediately following the rallies.

Donald Trump is spreading a disease in America, and a small part of the cure for that disease is to disgrace and discredit him through a comprehensive impeachment investigation.

It's driving me nuts that on your show and one or two others I've heard the comment that the impeachment of Clinton did not hurt the Republicans because they "won" the Presidency in the 2000 election. THEY DID NOT WIN!!! The Supreme Court chose our president that year. It was a coup! A caller referenced on your show that Gore lost in 2000 even though he won the popular vote and you didn't mention that he also won the electoral college, had the Supreme Court allowed Florida to finish the counting. Please correct yourself.

Why a little insurrection is no big deal to Republicans

It seems inexplicable.

A group of Americans invaded the US Capitol with a plan to kidnap and kill the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, hoping that would throw the Electoral College vote to the US House, where Republicans would declare Donald Trump the winner.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
