In the recent past it was announced that Keith Olbermann was leaving sports broadcasting to make his triumphant return to political commentary, right in time for the 2020 election.
Remove ACB fr society. @KeithOlberman in YouTube rant: “Trump can be and must be expunged….His enablers…the Mike Lee’s, the William Barr’s and the Sean Hannity’s and the Mike Pence’s…and the Amy Coney Barrett’s must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society” pic.twitter.com/jC0AgOhAMU

After right spent several days in uncontrollable laughter, Olbermann launched into this absolute disaster of a rant that he suggests some pretty questionable treatment for conservatives and Trump supporters.
“Trump can be and must be expunged. The hate he has triggered, the pandora’s box he has opened, they will not be so easily destroyed. So, let us brace ourselves. The task is two fold: The terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured at the ballot box and then he and his enablers and his supporters and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees, and the William Barrs and Sean Hannitys and the Mike Pences and the Rudy Guilianis and the Kyle Rittenhouses, and the Amy Comey Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society while try to rebuild it and to rebuild the world Trump has nearly destroyed by turning it over to a virus. Remember it, even as we dream of a return to reality and safety and the country for which our forefathers died. That the fight is not just to win an election but to win it by enough to chase, at least for a moment, Trump and the MAGAts off the stage and then try to clean up what they left. Remember it even though to remember it, means remembering that the fight does not end November 3rd, but in many ways, will only begin that day.”
Now my next question is just how exactly, Olbermann et al, thinks that they are going to enforce this little threat. Do they really think they are going to come at a bunch of gun-loving, god-fearing, left-hating conservatives with threats of forced internment without any push back? And is Olbermann going to be on those front lines attempting to arrest and detain these people? Of course not.
Now of course there will be those on the left that suggest Olbermann didn’t “say that.” Well there, Sparky, what exactly do you think “removing people from society” means? Do you think we are all headed to a summer camp with smores every night and waterskiing everyday? He is literally calling for internment, that last of which was done by…. oh that’s right… Democrat FDR in World War II. Olbermann’s words aren’t just a call to action, they are a call for war, one which he and the rest of his ilk, are likely to lose.
These are the same people who consistently lecture the right on “incendiary language” and calls to arms. What does the left expect? For the right to just agree and go along with their garbage agenda, even if it means the literal extermination of conservatives? I guess so.
Olbermann is going to Olbermann. At least he’s entertaining (just not in the way that he thinks).
