They are defending an erroneous set of factoids, not the Constitution

If you truly thought that tRump or Biden had stolen the election, you better base that on verifiable true facts that can pass detailed scrutiny, not some convoluted chain of conspiracies. Not some shaky video of people moving boxes with a voice-over interpreting it as evil.

Not a set of factoids so bogus they don't dare present them in court because the few times they tried they got laughed out and shut down.

And yes, the educational system has not equipped many people with the skills to detect and deflect propaganda; the skills of critical reasoning; the skill of avoiding confirmation bias and seeking counter-facts to test the strength of the hypothesis.

It has not equipped many people to recognize or even to avoid anti-democratic authoritarianism.

Bipartisanship starts with "Biden is President. He won an accurate count. The Steal was a lie."

Let them say that if they are serious about working with Democrats.

And they also have to start respecting Democrats by calling the party it's proper name, the Democratic Party.

This is really basic stuff.
