They may control Congress and the White House, but Republicans are the same old failures whose division was obvious during the campaign season. They have added one more fact to their internal problems; they cannot govern the United States.
Mitch ‘the traitor’ McConnell and Lyin Paul Ryan would like you to believe that their party has been fully reunited after Trump’s illegitimate win; that’s far from the truth. With the advent of the TEA Party in 2010, the GOP was dragged farther and farther to the right. Lyin Paul Ryan learned very quickly why John Boehner resigned. The entire party is divided and the old white moderates have allowed the extremists to decide the party’s direction. Moderates have lost control to the TEA Party and the Freedom Caucus who refuse to deliberate and compromise with their own party; they won’t talk to Democrats.
One of the reasons Trumpcare is so deplorable is because Lyin Ryan was forced to appease the Freedom Caucus to secure passage by a single vote.
In the Senate, the junior Senator from Arkansas, Tom Cotton, has proven himself to be not only a divisive extremist, he is a traitor to the United States of America. He is the senator who wrote a letter to Iran’s leaders during the nuclear weapons discussions. He threatened to organize the senate and repeal any agreement made by President Obama and John Kerry.
Cotton apparently hires men like himself. Recently an intern voiced opinions which may or may not be those of his boss.
“Nate” blasted Ryan for not having a hardline immigration stance, saying “Paul Ryan is a cuck, he’s a cuck, get him out” and “Paul Ryan: cuck first and Yankee second.”
The term ‘cuck’ originated in 2015 when extremists used the term “cuckservative” to describe Republicans who were not far enough to the right. It was quickly adopted by white supremacist Richard Spencer, who led the charge to award Lyin Ryan the “Cuck of the Year” award in 2016.
‘Nate’ continued his conversation with this reporter by saying “Americans are the superior race to everyone in the world . . . we’re superior people” — his evidence for such an assertion came from America’s wartime record. Nate then brought up the Revolutionary War during this rant and called the British “faggots” and American defector Benedict Arnold “a homosexual.”
How does a young man become so anti-American and so devoted to white nationalism so at such an early age? If Cotton agrees with his views, he must be removed from office.
‘Nate’ obviously agrees with Trump, maybe he should be an aide for his illegitimate president.
Division is not new within the GOP and within our nation. It began under Republican President George W. Bush; Trump can only take credit for exacerbating the problem.
According to a representative in Cotton’s office, ‘Nate’ is no longer an intern. The individual refused to discuss the situation at greater lengths.
I am sad for my country. Beliefs such as those from ‘Nate’ are in now way representative of most of the American people. This is obviously more of the “Trump Effect.”
‘Nate’ voiced other opinions share by Trump and his circle of sinners.
“Am I a bigot [towards Muslims]? I guess damn so!” Nate added.
Nate also claims that the idea of health care being a human right is “garbage” and “fundamentally wrong.”
“You will die in the streets if you are an idiot . . . we believe in Social Darwinism, the idiots will get fucked,” he said.
As his idol, Donald Trump would tweet; “sad; so sad.”
Please re-post; thank you.
