Political provocateur Keith Olbermann called for supporters of President Donald Trump to be imprisoned for “treason against humanity” in a recent broadcast on his YouTube channel.
“History will also ask what was in the hearts of the men and women who continued to support this creature Trump after his defeat, after his repudiation, after the national wildfire that was COVID-19 accelerated into this hellscape of conflagration in the days after the 2020 election,” Olbermann said in a commentary that miraculously escaped the dreaded “hate speech” label from YouTube’s censorship team. “Who let Trump stay manifestly insane as he is in office? Who refused to risk anything? Who refused to risk even a momentary loss of power to instead be certain death ruled this nation.”
Olbermann continued: “Who were these people? Did you put them on trial? Did any of them go to prison? What did you do to Trump after it was clear he knew what was ahead and lied, and lied, and lied, and lied, and lied? What did you do to ensure that no kind of leader could commit this treason again? And not against the country, treason against humanity.”
Olbermann’s outburst prompted WIBC host Tony Katz to explore the answer to a question that a lot of conservatives are asking themselves lately: “Biden won, so why are liberals still THIS angry?”
