Another supporter of Donald Trump is out of a job after being caught making shocking statements about their support for the president.
“A police chief in Arkansas has resigned after he threatened to assault “Marxist Democrats” in posts he made on the social media platform Parler,” KATV reported Saturday. “An active Parler user with the name and picture of Lang Holland, who was Marshall’s Chief of Police, posted multiple derogatory posts about Democrats, transgender people, and supporters of Black Lives Matter.”
Holland expected Trump to win re-election and sought retribution against Democrats.
“When this is over and Trump is president for 4 more years. Do not go to sleep. Do not forget what these Marxist Democrat b*st*rds have tried to do,” Holland posted, before the networks called the race for President-elect Joe Biden. “When you see one in public get in their face do not give them any peacee. Throw water on them at restaurants. Push them off sidewalks. Never let them forget they are traitors and have not right to live in this republic after what they have done.”
“Death to all Marxist Democrats. Take no prisoners leave no survivors!!” he wrote in a different post.

The City of Marshall strongly condemned the posts in a statement released Saturday.
If the GOP thinks Trump is ushering in a crisis — why did they support him for the last year?: Bulwark editor
Veteran newsman Carl Bernstein revealed that there are 21 Republicans too scared to reveal they think President Donald Trump should have reached the end of his options to fight the 2020 election. Still, most of them aren't speaking out publicly and they spent the past year enabling Trump, knowing full well that this is who he is.
Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”
Power-hungry Republicans do not fear Trump — it’s worse than that
There’s a presumption at work among members of the Washington press corps that needs rethinking. That presumption is this: the Republicans, especially those in the Senate, fear the wrath of voters who have balled up their identities with the rise and fall of Donald Trump. For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.
Katie Porter did not question Emily Murphy because the GSA head blew off today’s Biden transition briefing
Add General Services Administration administrator Emily Murphy to the long list of Trump administration officials who have decided respectfully honoring a lawful congressional request is optional.
Many Americans on Monday were excited to see Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA) question the GSA head, but it was not to be. Tweets like this one went wild on Monday morning:
GET READY: Today Rep. Katie Porter will ask @GSAEmily and the @USGSA to explain to America why they’re blocking the Biden-Harris team from a proper transfer of power. Every lost day endangers the lives of millions of Americans across the country. pic.twitter.com/DtunHVI3xg
