Oh boy. So there’s a lot going on in this latest absurd idiocy from Rep. Marjorie Greene, our favorite conspiracy theory moron in Congress.
Somehow someone got a document about her “America First Caucus!” that she was planning to unveil. It specifically said that it was in defense of “Anglo Saxon” principles and pro-European art and architecture. Here’s what they published on Friday:
So then allll of the partisan degenerate dominoes started falling in line.
Of COURSE, the media and the liberal left went wayyyyy too far in simply painting this as a “white supremacist” effort.
And of COURSE, some on the kinda-sorta-racisty alt-right defended the caucus, because this helps out their idiotic cause.
Also, of COURSE, scummy scumbag Matt Gaetz needs all the allies he can get, and he loves scraping the bottom of the barrel for them, so he jumped in IMMEDIATELY:
Not so fast, there Matt!!
It didn’t even last the weekend and now Greene is backing off on the caucus, leaving everyone who defended her looking like complete jackasses! From CNN:
Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is scrapping the planned launch of her “America First” caucus after receiving blowback from leaders in her own party, despite confirming through a spokesperson on Friday that the caucus would launch.
Nick Dyer, Greene’s spokesperson, told CNN in an email on Saturday afternoon the Georgia Republican is not “launching anything.”
“The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved,” he said in an email to CNN, referring to a flier promoting the caucus, obtained by Punchbowl News, that used inflammatory rhetoric.
He added that “she didn’t approve that language and has no plans to launch anything.”
Add crying-laughing emojis here please.
That is far too wonderful. And also terrible for our blessed country. We deserve better than this bullshit, but, this is what we’re choosing.
So here’s the thing. There’s nothing wrong with Anglo Saxon values, there’s nothing wrong to point out that America grew out of a foundation of many of the principles and values laid out by white people. The problem is that *some* scumbags use this in order to persuade others into truly racist extreme beliefs. It’s idiotic to deny that this happens, so politicians should take care when using language that might be taken in support of these morons. Is it unfair that the left can use whatever language they want without criticism? That is also true.
Now, I rarely compliment Kevin McCarthy, who has been encouraging this crap for far too long, but I have to admit he had a decent statement on this:
Yeah. That’s actually pretty good. There’s a difference between seeking a rational immigration policy that preserves the integrity of our country for all its citizens, and the irrational shrieking of some on our side that tends to sound a lot like nativism, and even racist. This doesn’t help our cause to persuade more people to our side.
