You've made some very good points, and obviously you speak from a perspective that I can imagine but never fully embody. However there were "Never Trump" Republicans right from the get go and "The Lincoln Project" is a largely R organization dedicated to fighting Trump. Is that the same thing as truly embracing the accountability and healing that this country needs? No, but it's also not the same as being a Trumpist. That's my point. We live in a two-party system, and that's what we have to work with right now. I just don't believe that further alienating potential allies by painting them with the same broad brush as actively Trumpist supporters is the most productive way to proceed. And I also understand that impulse to yell "fuck em all" about now.

"December 22, 2020—The Lincoln Project today released an ad praising Georgia’s Secretary of State for courageously standing up for democracy despite threats from President Trump and his supporters while Senators Loeffler and Perdue remain silent.

“Senators Loeffler and Perdue took oaths of office where they swore to defend our constitution against threats both foreign and domestic,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “Their silence is deafening and borders on treasonous as Donald Trump attempts to undercut our democracy for his own ego.”
