    Don't look now

    ....but you just might be the focus of systemic prejudice:

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) dismissed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) call for a “national divorce” that would separate the blue states from the red ones.

    “You know, I think Abraham Lincoln dealt with that kind of insanity,” Romney said on Tuesday, according to Deseret News. “We’re not going to divide the country. It’s united we stand, divided we fall.”

    Greene, a conspiracy theorist and close ally of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, said under her plan red states could openly discriminate against LGBTQ people and strip Democrats who move to those states of basic voting rights, among other things.

    Critics on both sides of the aisle have denounced the plan, with some calling itv “treasonous” and “evil.”

    But Greene, who spoke last year at a white nationalist event, isn’t backing down ― she is doubling down, getting a sympathetic ear from Sean Hannity on Fox News over the idea.

    Romney dismissed Greene and others on the extremes.

    “There are some people in my party and the other party that say things to try and get a headline and get people to send them money. And that happens to be in today’s ‘loony left,’ or I should say ‘loony right,’” Romney said, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

    I'm a convert who now supports Romney. I had old issues with him from the 2002 Olympics that no longer apply or matter. My Father is one of the LDS Betherin in Romney's church ward. And, Dad says Romney is an honest and capable politician. I trust my Father which is why I now trust Romney.
