Members of the MAGA cult (including members of Congress) have a problem distinguishing between loyalty to Trump and loyalty to the constitution. They are not the same. It doesn’t help that the leader of the cult has no loyalty to anything but himself:
A federal judge rejected the argument that US Capitol rioters held in jail are being prosecuted for their political views and disavowed attempts to downplay the magnitude of the deadly insurrection during a sentencing on Wednesday.
"You called yourself and everyone else patriots, but that’s not patriotism," Judge Amy Berman Jackson said of defendant Karl Dresch. "Patriotism is loyalty to country, loyalty to the Constitution, not loyalty to a head of state. That is the tyranny we rejected on July 4."
Jackson, known for her sharp criticism of the Trump administration’s moves, called Dresch an "enthusiastic participant" in the effort "to subvert democracy, to stop the will of the people and replace it with the will of the mob."
