Late Monday night, the official Twitter account of the Arizona Republican Party shared a tweet from Ali Alexander, a professional activist raising money on the lie that he will keep President-elect Joe Biden from being inaugurated. “I am willing to give my life for this fight,” Alexander wrote. “He is,” @AZGOP commented. “Are you?” A little while later the account posted another, similar tweet, which has since been deleted. “This is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or die for something,” it said, pairing a quote from the Rambo franchise with a brief video clip.
The Arizona GOP is not alone in these theatrics.
