As cliche as it may sound, moments of crisis are when people show their true colors.
In the last four years, Erick Erickson has demonstrated time and time again that he is a gatekeeper of the highest order. He called for Dissident Right commentators such as Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, and Paul Joseph Watson to be censored for being “reactionaries”, has had fantasies about a Mike Pence/Nikki Haley ticket, defended Mitt Romney during the impeachment farce, and even supported Marco Rubio’s dubious assertion of right-wing involvement during the BLM riots of the past summer.
On January 6, 2021, Erickson took his pettiness to a whole new level by calling for demonstrators who broke into the D.C. capitol to be shot.
Erickson tweeted, “Shoot the protestors. Waive the rules, impeach. Waive the rules, convict, Waive the rules, deny the ability to run for election again.”
