The war of words look to be reaching a whole new level. Arizona Republicans ratcheted up the rhetoric by urging people to fight to the death on behalf of President Donald Trump’s attempts to dispute the 2020 Election.
This coming as Arizona’s state Supreme Court denied the most recent claims from Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward. Which awards the state’s 11 electoral votes to Democrat Joe Biden.
But she continues to appeal state certification in court. Ward’s efforts come even as Trump’s legal team reportedly hasn’t produced evidence that 2020’s general election was affected by mass voter fraud.
The Arizona Republican Party took to Twitter early Tuesday and shared a shocking tweet from ‘Stop The Steal’ National Organizer Ali Akbar. As he posted, “I am willing to give my life for this fight.” They quoted him and answered, “He is. Are you?”

Akbar earned notoriety as an alt-right Trump supporter though this clearly goes past the point of reason. The Lt. Gov. of Pennsylvania John Fetterman let them know as much.
Fetterman stated, “The AZ GOP put out a casting call for martyrs over Twitter. This is truly bonkers and unbelievably dangerous. I’ve been saying all along about how *punitive* it is to be a Republican who just simply acknowledges electoral *reality*.” In addition, “If this isn’t full-on death cult rhetoric, what’s left?”
Plus he announced, “Merit-less lawsuits and snake handling revivals in a Ramada ballroom is one thing but openly asking if you’re willing to die for someone who lost a fair election is full-on cult.”

Others swiftly piled on. The peanut gallery of Twitter had no mercy.
While Trump’s followers push fellow Republicans to act, a different position may soon be taken. With a noted critic who claimed history shows his base will disregard him like yesterday’s papers.
In fact, GOP consultant called out his fellow Republicans while While appearing on MSNBC where strategist Rick Tyler tore into his party. As Tyler took issue with top Republican lawmakers for allowing themselves to be played by President Donald Trump for his own benefit.
Host Ali Velshi tried to uncover why this was the case. And questioned:
“Explain to me what you believe the motivation is in sitting and watching this Republican clown car with a seized engine and tires blowed out going off a cliff? Why would any Republican want this to happen? …there is life after Trump, and shouldn’t Republicans who have had a political party for a very long time be thinking about that?”
He held nothing back and replied, “What you’re seeing is a party of cowards. I don’t know if there’s rehabilitation for eunuchs, a party of eunuchs, but I don’t think there is.” That statement sure to draw some attention.
Plus he added, “This party has self-destructed and destroyed itself, although I would say that you underestimate the legal team. I’m looking to give them a contribution, and I’d encourage many people to give Rudy … as much contribution and money to keep this clown show going, because I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Beyond that, Tyler trashed Trump for denouncing Republican Party candidates in the Peach State. “They’re in Georgia now telling people not to vote, to boycott the Republican election.”
Tyler said of Trump’s rally in Georgia: “Donald Trump will just talk about how the election was stolen, the grievances and he’ll drive away the very voters that Perdue and Loeffler need to win in Georgia.”
Trump often will demean, insult or intimidate other party members if they don’t fall in line. A Washington Post article published yesterday revealed the results after asking all Congressional Republicans who won this election.
Only 27, or less than 15% of them stated that Democrat Joe Biden had won. Trump wasted no time as he took to Twitter and posted,”25, wow! I am surprised there are so many. We have just begun to fight. Please send me a list of the 25 RINOS. I read the Fake News Washington Post as little as possible!”
