One of the hallmarks of our era is the way that being polite is more important than being accurate, and so is of interest to us that suddenly public figures are choosing accuracy. Gone are the days of My Friend From XYZ and now it’s Elise Stefanik The Fascist From NY. (And make no mistake, she really is espousing fascism.)
Following the horrifying mass shooting in Buffalo, the WaPo thought it was important to note that Stefanik, the third-ranking House Republican, had echoed the “great replacement” rhetoric:
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), the No. 3 House Republican, and other GOP lawmakers came under scrutiny Sunday for previously echoing the racist “great replacement” theory that apparently inspired an 18-year-old who allegedly killed 10 people while targeting Black people at a supermarket in Buffalo.
Darth Cheney’s evil spawn was more polite than the WaPo, but still plenty pointed that K-Mac needs to do sumpin’ about sumpin’:
Adam Kinzinger is out of eff’s to give and calls his friend from NY out by name:
Stefanik, of course fights back: it’s not a replacement, it’s an invasion:
Saint Ronnie’s 11th Commandment that no Republican shall speak ill of any other Republican seems quaint in the moment, and I’m sure his grave spinning is making Nancy ‘Jaws’ Reagan’s work more difficult. But I digest…
The time has come to grab the bull by the tail and face the situation: The Republican Party is the Problem. The Republican Party is a fascist party from top to bottom and with the SCOTUS bolted on to boot. There is no time to be polite, but it is past time to be accurate.
The GOP agitprop is killing people, we’re just six months from an election where Republicans and their racist Replacement Theory are likely to take over the apparatus of Congress. What Liz Cheney said, above, is correct: this will not end well.
We don’t have time to be polite. But we do have time to get organized and vote them out of office from top to bottom. This is our Prime Directive now.
UPDATE 1: I just can’t –
It’s the fucking when they go low bullshit all over again. Name and shame them all.
