Never Trump politicians like Rep. Adam Kinzinger (RINO-IL) seem to have a common problem — they’re not the brightest bulbs in the shop and they have difficulty being honest about the facts. That perhaps explains why they have the political position they have.

Kinzinger came out with a comment about Tucker Carlson and you’ll see the immediate problem with it.

“Now that we have seen evidence of mass graves in Ukraine, and pictures of the atrocities against civilians, We should demand @TuckerCarlson answer for his support of this war, as well as those Congressmen who have done the same. @GOPLeader should demand accountability,” Kinzinger tweeted.

Now, first of all, this is just false. Tucker Carlson does not “support” the war. Indeed he condemned the war on his show on March 21, noting that he was rooting for the Ukrainians to boot the Russians. What he had expounded on was whether or not it was our fight and to what extent we should be involved. Plus perhaps there were other priorities that we might have. Kinzinger can’t understand the difference. So Kinzinger is just wrong, as he generally is.

But second, so what if he did “support” it? We don’t go after people for “wrong think” in this country. If we did, we’d be like Vladimir Putin and Russia. That’s what Kinzinger is advocating — that the government go after private citizens — a member of the media even — and demand he act in political compliance with what Kinzinger says. That even members of Congress who might disagree with him should be punished for not being in line with the narrative. Can you get more fascistic and Putin-like than that? How is that free speech? Isn’t that suppressing the media? This is a failure on Kinzinger’s part to understand his role as a member of Congress and the Constitution that he allegedly swore to uphold. What Kinzinger is pushing is not America.
