The Arizona GOP chairman urges Trump to heed Flynn and cross the Rubicon, alarming the people receiving the reference

President Trump met with Michael Flynn, the retired Lieutenant General who briefly served as his first national security advisor shortly after apologizing for the FBI’s lying, Friday night and asked about Flynn’s idea of ​​sending the U.S. military to multiple voting states for the elected President Joe Biden, forcing them to “re-run” the election after several news organizations. Most Trump administration officials and advisers at the Oval Office meeting reportedly had violent objections to this idea and other plans to overthrow Trump’s final, certified loss, despite former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne saying he was there and on the side of Flynn, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, who falsely tell Trump that he actually won the election. On Sunday, Arizona GOP chairman Kelli Ward urged Trump to listen to his conspiratorial seducers, using a historical analogy from year 49 BCC slang to urge them to overthrow a Democratic election. However, you do not need to read Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus to understand the specific historical context of the sentence. For example, you could consult Wikipedia or ask a high school history teacher.> I don’t think those who use the term “crossing the Rubicon” understand what this means. >> Julius Ceasar crossing the Rubicon was the event that brought the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Empire, ruled by an all-powerful emperor. pic.twitter.com/QiC4j0c5YP >> – Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (@BePastafarian) December 20, 2020> Additional historical point. When I teach my HS history students, Caesar managed to overthrow the republic because his men took an oath to serve him, not the republic. Fortunately, our military swears an oath on the constitution. Trump’s crackpots will not succeed. >> – John James (@ musicman495) December 20, 2020 When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon with a legion of soldiers into Roman Italy, he violated Roman law and sparked a civil war, the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Rich. Things didn’t go well for Caesar, of course, but if you’re looking to save a republic from an autocrat, it’s probably best to understand your historical analogies before crossing the rhetorical Rubicon.
