Twitter was buzzing this morning about new video of Rep. Madison Cawthorn speaking at a Macon County GOP gathering, praising January 6th arrestees as "political prisoners," and promising mysterious further action. A man in the crowd wearing a Trump hat asks, “When are you going to call us to Washington again?” He was alluding to Cawthorn's role in juicing up the mob at the January 6th rally before the storming of the Capitol. According to Wendy Nevarez, a Republican challenger to Cawthorn in next spring's Republican primary (who also posted some of the video of Cawthorn speaking), "Madison looks worried but his answer is more worrisome: 'We are actively working on that. I don’t have an answer for you right now.' 'We have some plans in motion I can’t make public right now.' ”
If Madison Cawthorn, who couldn't get through freshman English, is in charge of planning the next insurrection, then I suspect we'll be all right.

Note the gun. And the total absence of masks.
