Cheney Calls On GOP To Denounce White Nationalism

The New York Times reports:

In just the past year, Republican luminaries like Newt Gingrich and Elise Stefanik, the center-right New York congresswoman turned Trump acolyte (and third-ranking House Republican), have echoed replacement theory. Appearing on Fox, Mr. Gingrich declared that leftists were attempting to “drown” out “classic Americans.”

In September, Ms. Stefanik released a campaign ad on Facebook claiming that Democrats were plotting “a PERMANENT ELECTION INSURRECTION” by granting “amnesty” to illegal immigrants, which her ad said would “overthrow our current electorate and create a permanent liberal majority in Washington.”

That same month, Rep. Matt Gaetz wrote on Twitter, “@TuckerCarlson is CORRECT about Replacement Theory as he explains what is happening to America.”  In a statement after the Buffalo shooting, Mr. Gaetz said that he had “never spoken of replacement theory in terms of race.”

Read the full article. Cheney’s tweet, at least in part, appears to be aimed at her successor Stefanik.

Yeah! Republicans are going to denounce their own base? While they’re at it maybe they could denounce their religious extremists and their anti-vaxxers and their conspiracy theorists! LOL!

After 50 years of coddling this faction, funding and promoting these people because they needed them for power, it is not going to change until they lose a series of Red States governors, etc.

And that ain’t happening soon. Besides this faction now runs the show.

They won’t denounce — they’ll deflect: they’re already claiming the Buffalo shooter is FBI.

Oh, for fuck’s sake, NYTimes. Elise Stefanik is not a “luminary.” She’s an ignorant racist upstate trash heap.

She knows. I think she’s trying to expose this to a broader Republican base that the cuurent GOP are actually super extreme. She is hoping that she can rekindle a return to a more “moderate”/civil Republican base.

Ah, of course, he only meant it in terms of.. what, heritage? “Western Culture”, another buzzword used when they don’t want to say ‘race’? Please, do be specific…

Heterosexual Supremacy is the cornerstone of the Republican Party. They didn’t hide their hate. It was straightforward part of the Republican Platform until that platform was chucked in favor of it being “whatever Trump says it is.” . So it should be no surprise that they are now becoming more open about their White Nationalism too.
